Iran

Recommended Posts

This document explains why we are seeing alot about Iran in the news recently.

http://www.energybulletin.net/7707.html

Taken from the article

In essence, Iran is about to commit a far greater “offense†than Saddam Hussein's conversion to the euro for Iraq’s oil exports in the fall of 2000. Beginning in March 2006, the Tehran government has plans to begin competing with New York's NYMEX and London's IPE with respect to international oil trades – using a euro-based international oil-trading mechanism.

The proposed Iranian oil bourse signifies that without some sort of US intervention, the euro is going to establish a firm foothold in the international oil trade. Given U.S. debt levels and the stated neoconservative project of U.S. global domination, Tehran’s objective constitutes an obvious encroachment on dollar supremacy in the crucial international oil market.

Shame Iran is rocking the boat on the nuclear front. They should leave this alone for a while and get on with creating a market for oil in Euros.

The US Dollar is confetti - they just print more and more of it as they wish. It's high time dollar supremacy came to an end.

GW-Bush is happy for oil to rise so he and his scum frinds like Condy can cash in on the price and America profits if they force everyone to only sell and buy oil in USD$.

Last week we learned that the Bush Administration lied about the extent of Halliburton Corporation's involvement in the "reconstruction" of Iraq. Bush officials initially claimed that Halliburton--the oil and defense services conglomerate once headed by Vice President Dick Cheney, who still receives an estimated $1 million annually from the company in "deferred compensation"--had been awarded a relatively small contract to repair Iraqi oilfields.

But in fact, as the Washington Post reports, Halliburton is now pumping and distributing Iraq's vast oil reserves--a privilege potentially worth billions of dollars. The Bush camp freely admits that this was part of Halliburton's no-bid, open-ended contract all along; they deliberately "failed to mention it" in their first official notices. It was not publicly disclosed until a congressman read the fine print of the contract and began making enquires.

To recap: a firm which pays the Vice President of the United States a million dollars a year has now taken over operation of Iraq's oil wealth. There have been times in American history when such an arrangement would have been called by its true name: "corruption." But these are not such times.

It's good to see Europe is building it's own GPS system. Why ?

Found these as well:

MOSCOW [MENL] -- Russia, pledging to complete the Busheher reactor, has offered to sell a range of surface-to-air missile systems to protect Iran's nuclear facilities.

MOSCOW [MENL] -- Iran and Russia have agreed on a deadline for the delivery of nuclear fuel for the Bushehr reactor.

I think we could see the price of gold breaking the $1000 dollar mark by this time next year.
