America is secretly funding militant ethnic separatist groups in Iran in an attempt to pile pressure on the Islamic regime to give up its nuclear programme.I think the newspaper has this wrong. These are not terrorists, they're "freedom fighters" pursuing the development of freedom, democracy, and the American way! Why, they're just like those freedom fighters we supported who wanted to rid themselves of Russian domination in Afghanistan!
In a move that reflects Washington's growing concern with the failure of diplomatic initiatives, CIA officials are understood to be helping opposition militias among the numerous ethnic minority groups clustered in Iran's border regions.
The operations are controversial because they involve dealing with movements that resort to terrorist methods in pursuit of their grievances against the Iranian regime.
I'm a very lucky person with every allergy known to man but still happy to be enjoying a wonderful life living in the best place in the world!
