Iran:Toilets and Nuclear technology

Kaghz Pareh (means a piece of paper) says[Fa] that according to news sites Spain signed a contract with Iranian government to construct 1000 toilets in Iran. The blogger says I got surprised by this piece of news because each day government announces new inventions and progress in nuclear technology but we are unable to construct even our own toilets.

    Don’t be surprised, the more a country advance the less it would be encouraged to stick to low class industries. Once USA was making progress in space technplogies, it invested in countires to make products like jeens by Korea.

    USSR did the same in those times,it was making progress in nuclear technologies but bought Iranian made shoes.

    You can find more if you think
