Weapons of Mass Transactions

March 12, 2006

The U.S. is about to attack Iran. The plans have been on the table for some time, but like the war in Iraq, it is not about Weapons of Mass Destruction. Iraq had none, and the Islamic Republic has none and probably has no intentions of getting them in the near future. Despite that, the U.S. will argue that they must attack Iran for the safety of the “free world.”

I wish it was not just about oil, but all of the facts suggest otherwise. Iran is about to stop trading its oil in dollars (the long-time default oil currency) and begin using euros. With that, one of the world’s largest oil-producing countries will be sending a clear message to the U.S. that its financial empire has begun to crumble.

Says William Clark:

“Saddam Hussein sealed his fate when he announced in September 2000 that Iraq was no longer going to accept dollars for oil being sold under the UN’s Oil-for-Food program, and decided to switch to the euro as Iraq’s oil export currency”

Evidence suggests that the U.S. will attack Iran with air strikes, and they are planning to use untested “low-yield” nuclear weapons against them. The results are unpredictable, and casualties could range from hundreds to millions. When Bush first came to power, those of us who predicted he would attack Iraq were scoffed. Now, we can only hope that the world will heed our warning before the U.S. draws itself into a conflict, not only with Iran, but possibly with Iranian allies (Russia and China). All of this for the sake of the not-so-almighty dollar.

“This notion that the United States is getting ready to attack Iran is simply ridiculous…Having said that, all options are on the table.”

– President George W. Bush, February 2005
