How did Iran become a country?
Where did it get its name from? Who settled Iran? What sociological changes occurred in Iranian culture? Where did the people who lived in Iran prior to the Persian Empire go? Where did the Persians go after the inception of Islam? Is Iran mostly an Islamic nation? How does Iran feel about Israel? What does the future of Iran look like from a globalist worldview?
Waw, you can write the whole hub about this.
Iran is one of the countries that has a long history behind it.
The name of Iran (ایران) is the Modern Persian derivative from the Proto-Iranian term Aryānā,, meaning "Land of the Aryans". The term Ērān is found to refer to Iran in a 3rd-century Sassanid inscription, and the Parthian inscription that accompanies it uses the Parthian term "aryān" in reference to Iranians.
The Persians never went anywhere, they simply evolved together with their history.
Religion in Iran is dominated by the Twelver Shia branch of Islam, which is the official state religion and to which about 90% to 95% of Iranians belong. About 4% to 8% of Iranians belong to the Sunni branch of Islam, mainly Kurds and Iran's Balochi Sunni. The remaining 2% are non-Muslim religious minorities, including Bahá'ís, Mandeans, Hindus, Yezidis, Yarsanis, Zoroastrians, Jews, and Christians.

The answer is no.In fact, they are the best country in the world at catching drugs smugglers. Removing Mahmoud Ahmadinejad from power could see the opening up of the most important drug smuggling route in the world. I don't want to see tonnes of opium in Europe from Afghanistan, just so that...

While researching for another forum post, I came across an interesting note. Iran say they are only developing Nuclear technology to produce electricity - which is a noble cause - but they have the largest stock-pile of oil in the world (or at least close to it) so why do they need an alternative...
