...These include strengthening Iran's ability to neutralize the burden of sanctions, and making Iran an "official hub of power in the Global South and in the Middlethe Middle East."
Other researchers have solved other potential problems of the LFT "Rs indirectly.  If a crash LFTR development program that would be similar in scope to the World War iI Manhattan Project were to be undertaken by 2012, large scale factory production of L:FTRs could be undertaken by 2020.Given a crash program of LFTR development in the next decade, and the potential for rapid deployment through factory production, most American electrical production could be coming from post carbon sources by 2030, and at a lower cost than from either conventional nuclear or renewable energy sources.The LFTR paradigm offers a comprehensive low cost solution to the problem of switching the generation of electricity to post carbon sources.  Because of its potential for rapid expansion, LFTR technology could also provide the generating capacity to support the electrification of ground transportation.  Mini-LFTRs could be used to power ships.  Stand alone small and mini LFTRs could provide electrical energy and heat to isolated communities."
