Nuclear Chickens Come Home To Roost
US built major Iranian nuclear facility The Tehran Research Reactor represents a little-known aspect of the international uproar over the country's alleged weapons program. Not only did the U.S. provide the reactor in the 1960s as part of a Cold War strategy, America also supplied the weapons-grade uranium needed to power the facility—fuel that remains in Iran and could be used to help make nuclear arms.
Iran was under the Shah whom the CIA put in place....and whose CIA trained secret police put opposition activists in jail. Of course that was the Cold War and as a result the CIA created the mess in Iran. Just as they created the situation the mess in Afghanistan; by arming the Mujahadin. Which through internecine conflicts ended up with the dominace of the Taliban and their support from and for Al-Qaeda.
The American occupation of Afghanistan is due to the failure of US Cold War Imperialism.
