Forever Under Construction

Oh, One Last Thing!

Posted in Iran, Oil, USA by homeyra on March 1, 2007

Q. Persia is sitting on a sea of oil. What could they possibly need a civilian nuclear energy program for?

A. I’d love to be a Congressman for a day with subpoena authority. I’d subpoena Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld. I’d say:

“In 1976, Dick, when you were White House Chief of Staff, and Donald, when you were the Secretary of Defense for Gerald Ford, you guys concurred that Iran had every right to pursue a nuclear energy program inclusive of indigenous enrichment of uranium capabilities, and yet at that time Iran was one of the major oil producers, awash in a sea of oil. Why did you reach that conclusion? If you don’t want to testify, I’ll pull out the documents you signed. You reached that conclusion because you agreed that the expert opinion in Iran and the US, that Iran had a finite amount of oil, that this oil needed to be exported for Iran to retain economic viability, that Iran was a developing economy, that if it did not develop an alternative energy source, would eventually be consuming the bulk of the oil meant for exportation, thereby destroying Iran’s ability to generate the income needed build its economy. It would self-destruct.” …

Regime Change is the reason, disarmament, the excuse interview with Scott Ritter, see previous post: The case against Iran

    Regime change! Change from Ahmadinejad to Rafsanjani; not to Sahabi, of course! Well I can live better with Hashemi, than with that STUPID Reza Pahlavi, or the CRIMINAL Maryam Rajavi! At least Hashemi has enough capitalist interest in Iran to want to save the economy from major assault!

    If that is their intention, they can just keep doing it psychologically. No war needed!
