Ahmadinejad just announced the creation of a committee that will put a cash number on the damages inflicted on Iran during WWII.
That's not a mistake.
Ahmadinejad wants war reparations from the United States and Russia.
There is an element of truth to this claim.
In August of 1941 the English and the USSR invaded Iran and took control of the oil fields. The objective was to make certain that the oil went to the Allies and that trade routes through the region were reserved for the Soviets as they squeezed out the Germans.
Iran is claiming that the invasion cost the Iranians a significant chunk - that inflation skyrocketed and the cost of essentials went through the roof.
He said: "You inflicted lots of damages to the Iranian nation, put your weight on the shoulders (of the Iranian people) and became victors in the World War II. You didn't even share the war profits with Iran."
Iranians see the world differently than everyone else.
They will persist with their demand.
I would guess that this is only Iran.s opening salvo.
