    Old history but quite true -some of it - I worked in Bushehr, The Naval-Base/Atomic Plant? some of those years. You didn't know or mention the airbase in Bushehr. Mekorot worked there? The commander of the base was trained as a pilot in Israel. He told me he found it hard because the country was so small in just a few minutes he would find himself by accident out of Israel. There was a squadron of US Jet Fighters from Vietnam sold to Iran with their Yankee pilots to train the Iranians how to fly them. Teheran was a great place in those years for every-one and peace but you can blame The French for what it is now - they gave Khomeini a home for years from where he stirred up all the churrah and the Yanks as usual, stuffed up and gave no support to Pahlavi and he had to leave like we did. The British are smart, they could see further ahead and kept out of all this stupid balagan. Never mind. We and my people still know as we always do the old expression "The enemy of my enemy is my best friend." Thumbs up my people, we'll come through and we will be be courageous..
