Iran’s Nuclear Ambitions

Iran wants nukes

(From Wikipedia, via The Paltry Sapien)

We helped Iran acquire nuclear technology, strictly for peaceful purposes, you know. Even though:

…a 1974 CIA proliferation assessment stated “If [the Shah] is alive in the mid-1980s… and if other countries [particularly India] have proceeded with weapons development we have no doubt Iran will follow suit.”

Or, to paraphrase FDR, the Shah may be a son of a bitch, but he’s our son of a bitch!

It’s a good thing giving dangerous technology to puppet dictators never backfires.
