Never again; the shah might have mulled the thought over in his mind as he flew back to Tehran. Never again would he be so poor and vulnerable as he was in Rome. Never again would he be a plaything of another man as he had been of Mosaddeq. Never again would he forget his father's advice: any man worth asking to help in the arduous work of making a nation will seek your place if allowed. Already he and his new prime minister, General Zahedi, had come to some disagreements about Mosaddeq, who committed treason. By the end of 1954 Zahedi was in trouble, he and his cabinet tainted by unproved accusations of corruption. Zahedi, realizing he had no future, even if he discounted his problems with Ebtehaj, resigned on 6 April 1955.
