Kamangir talks about Ayatollah Khomenii's [1] letter that was published after 18 years. We read in media, a letter from 1988 in which Iran's top commander says Iran could need a nuclear bomb to win the war against Iraq has come to light in Tehran [2]. The blogger adds I do not blame them; Iraq was using chemical weapons against Iranians. I say, let’s be honest; Khomeini never issued a Fatwa against nuclear weapons, or at least he did not really mean nuclear arsenal is as bad as pork is. [3]
