Why does Mordor have it in for Iran as opposed to other central Asian states? Contrary to Mordor’s claims, none of the people involved in the 9/11 events were from Iran. Rather, they were from Saudi Arabia. The reason is because Iran insists on managing its own economy and building infrastructures like the Mashhad-Sarakhs railroad and a pipeline to the Caspian Sea Basin. These infrastructures will connect central Asian states to the world markets through Iranian Gulf ports.
