Iran was divided and well occupied by England and the Soviet Union
under yes support of the USA from 1941 until de-facto 1946, as far
as i know.  The government tried and pulled all possible triggers
to gain back a bit of sovereignity, including the Sha resigning in
favour of his son.
What i mean is that the time span from 1941 to 1946 is of
a fragile sort.  Maybe this is what drove _this_ 1946 here.
