Are You Ready for War with Iran?

January 25, 2006

In a feat of Orwellian doublespeak, US Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice has upped the ante in the Neocons’ zeal for yet another war in the Near East, stating that while the US hopes to resolve its nuclear differences with Iran diplomatically, time has run out for discussion.

Apparently having determined that its wars against Afghanistan and Iraq have gone swimmingly, and despite a report that concludes that the US Army is stretched to the breaking point, the War Party seems desperate to draw Iran into their grand plans.

So, why am I not surprised to hear that the real reason behind America’s next war may be that Iran is about to open a new Oil Bourse which will threaten the US economy by selling its oil for Euros instead of dollars? Here is another report on the same subject, and another, and another, and another.

[2/11/06 Postscript: But then again, here is a brief piece by Paul Craig Roberts that says the Iranian oil bourse will not have a negative impact on the dollar. Notwithstanding Roberts’ opinion, I don’t trust the Bushies not to try to destroy Iran just for having the gaul to make the attempt to sell their oil in Euros.]

[2/17/07 Postscript: Here is an update on the threatened US war (crime) on Iran.]
