Who is the current Shah of Iran?
Currently in the Islamic Republic of Iran, there is no Shah. The last ruling Shah of Iran (Mohammed Reza Pahlavi) was forced into exile in 1979 and died in 1980. His son Reza Pahlavi II is the heir to the Persian throne, but does not carry the title of Shah since he does not actually rule anything; he is a Pretender to the Throne.

Why did the US support the Shah Reza Pahlavi?
The United States did not support Shah Reza Pahlavi nor did they oppose him. The United States foreign policy prior to World War II (when Reza Pahlavi ruled) was minimal and therefore most American administrations did not have an issue or position with his leadership. The United States would come to support his son and successor Mohammed Reza Pahlavi as the Shah of Iran.
