Iran and the Smell of Crude
A few quick thoughts about the elections in Iran and the Republican outcry about Pres. Obama's so-called failure to be insistently resistent:
We went into Iraq for the oil--nothing else. We want Iran for the same reason. The oil companies and their spokespersons Limbaugh, Cheney, and Gingrich will do whatever it takes to restore Iran to its pre-revolution (i.e. The Shah) days. Next: Venezuela.
The President is right to maintain his current position.
