Why oppose war on and revolution in Iran for years only to now apparently support it? I guess it's the same reason for opposing Israel and Saudi Arabia for years, accusing them of complicity in 9/11, only to now support Israel and Saudi Arabia: coz Trump!
This is called virtue signalling:

The woman who tweeted this seems to be at the least sympathetic to Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, who was complicit in Operation Ajax when Mossadegh was booted out by the Angl-Americans for having the cheek to want to use the profits from Iranian oil to help build up Iran. The Anglo-American agent Pahlavi was initially exiled but returned to lock Mossadegh up and appoint Mossadegh's successor, General Fazlollah Zahedi, who was imposed on Pahlavi by the Anglo-Americans. Pahlavi would then violently rule Iran through the SAVAK which was created and trained by the CIA and Mossad.
So Watson tweeting this kinda makes sense.
