  4. Military conflict, international sanctions and disruption of oil supply is inevitable. Just a function of time.

    It means that the chances are the blitz plan is not going to work and it will become a long lasting conflict. But on the other hand Iranian president is very agressive in his rhetorics & he clearly & unfortenutely presents threat to the global security.
  7. A former U.N. weapons inspector who said Iraq disarmed long before the U.S. invasion in 2003 is warning Americans to prepare for a war with Iran.

    "We just don't know when, but it's going to happen," Scott Ritter said to a crowd of about 150 at the James A. Little Theater on Sunday night.

    Ritter described how the U.S. government might justify war with Iran in a scenario similar to the buildup to the Iraq invasion. He also argued that Iran wants a nuclear energy program, and not nuclear weapons.

    But the Bush administration, he said, refuses to believe Iran is telling the truth.

    Why would Iran be looking simply for a nuclear energy ( I would say agressively looking for nuclear energy with their new president since the first thing he did after being elected was to remove the UN seals ) while other countries with less fuel resourses ( but also less agressive policies) are content with buying the oil from Iran & are not seeking for the nuclear energies instead. Something is not right here.
  9. Maybe Iran would prefer to sell their oil to us dumb westerners for $60 / bbl instead of burning it to create electricity.
