Iran, L’eclatement traces the slow progress of the Iranian revolution; from the uprising blowing from the mosques, while the Shah's regime still seems indestructible, to the victory of the prophet. Day after day, the country sinks into a catastrophic situation. The absence of a real power, or rather the multiplicity of these powers, prevents any comprehensive and coherent policy: between the fanatics of Islam, the Maoist or Marxist groups, the progressive and westernized intelligentsia and an illiterate people subjected to the greatest pressures, what could be the meeting point?

Adding to the enormous problems of the country are the claims of the kurdish, turkmen, belucian and arab minorities, all of whom are demanding their autonomy. No guarantees are offered to religious minorities and even less to women. Five hundred thousand weapons are in the hands of Islamic militias and the most diverse organizations; the slightest spark risks igniting this powder keg. Moreover, this conflict is taking place in a troubled and unstable context. To the north, the Muslim republics of the Soviet Union may be tempted to follow the Iranian example; to the east, the pro-soviet republic of Mr. Taraki. Afghanistan suffers repeated attacks by Islamic guerrillas: in the south-east, in Pakistan, an Islamic and authoritarian regime, intermittent riots cause dozens of deaths; finally in the west, Iraq, a Muslim country with a Shiite majority like Iran, but led by Sunnis. Everything is ready for a general conflagration, not only on the scale of one country, but on the scale of reason.
