    Slight correction to history: In 1902, there was no “Soviet” influence anywhere, only Russian influence. Soviet Union did not exist until end of World War I, around 1918.

    Soviet influence or Russian influence does not matter to the issue being articulated i.e., the legal sovereignty of Iran over those Islands being wrongfully claimed UAE.

    Too many things to Say. But i will just address the Last paragraph. The 400,000 Iranians living in Dubai Will Never pull their Money out , Because their alternative is to go back to “Hell” ( IRAN ) which holds extremist views, does not allow people to Think or Live; Free and is Part of Failed outlook on Life that will soon be Eradicated (God Willing) from the Face of this Earth and By that i Mean the Administration Running the Country Not the IRANIAN PEOPLE.

    This article is political BS.
    If the problem was treated as Geographical, which it should, then the article would have no basis. The islands are in Emirates’ Waters.

    To Rohan: It is not correct that Iran or its government for that matter holds extremist views. You are viewing the picture in the wrong angle. Those who did not share the values & beliefs of the Iranians are the ones who has the extremist views. Huge majority of the Iranians are in the same boat with the people running the affairs of their government. Western media outlets are tremendously besmirching the good image of the Iranian authorities.
