The article talks about "Khomeini’s era (33years ago)" where things was «EXTREME», revolution was something new, Iranian army was scattered,
issues of curfew in every cities, fighting insurgencies and domestic terrorism (MEK) and the other local dissident movement (especially communism) and
in the middle of this soup Saddam Hussein forces was inside of Iranian western borders killing civilians destroying cities.
The whole western world was against Iran not to mention Iranian's arch enemy the "Soviet" helping and supplying Saddam’s invading army while
refusing to support what the Shah of Iran and the government are “already paid for in advance back in his ruling time (like supposedly Iranian F-16
suddenly showed up in Israeli air force)!” etc.
In that sense:
“We pursued ways in order to gain nuclear arms,” Gen. Mohsen Rafiqdoost told the regime’s Mehr News on Saturday. “I asked Imam
[Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini] what his opinion was. He said do not pursue atoms, and we stopped.”
Article is correctly translated and there are no (mistranslations).
Option was open to Iranian at that time and I pity them if they have refused to accept it.
