Columnist at www.windsofchange.net points out that the Iranian people don't have the guts to revolt...even if we invade.

If we don't have an indigenous army of "Iranians" trained and ready now...then the Hildebeast was right when she criticized the President for being caught flatfooted by Iran's nuke program.

Many people say that the President should wait until *after* the Midterm elections to move on Iran.

I say the opposite should be the case. We need to conduct a takedown of the regime by this summer. If it really looks like this administration hasn't prepared an amazing "takedown" play for Iran...many independents in the middle will look toward a Biden here, a Hildebeast there...and maybe stop looking at the Republicans as being tough on national security.

Tehran is preparing to open a bourse, a mercantile (commodity) exchange and potentially a futures/options market to be traded only in Euros, they claim the American Dollar will not be utilized to hurt US.

Besides crude oil, natural gas and pistachio nuts, just what other major commodities does the Mullah Inc think traders (without a brain) will be trading in the Shi'ite center for global jihad? Persian rug options?

Maybe they could try neckties, since nobody wears them in the Iranian ruling régime, since they too are "Western". Gezz, I wonder if Assad is knows what the score on this one? :)

The obvious threat is to deal what they hope to be a significant blow to the position of worldwide power the US Dollar in relation to the Euro and also try and sink major American stock indexes, sounds like economic warfare in conjunction to Tehran's jihadist terrorist war against the West. DOW Chart beginning to look bearish

Iran, the second-largest crude oil producer within the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, exports roughly 2.5 million barrels per day - 1 million barrels more than current excess production capacity worldwide. It also controls the strategic Strait of Hormuz, a critical shipping lane in the Middle East, but that so-called control could be altered very quickly through the U.S. Navy, British Navy & other allied navies and then how would Iran transport her oil & natural gas to awaiting customers? James Bartis, a senior researcher at Rand Corp stated "Even if Iran pulled a small amount of its oil off the market, say it pulled a half million barrels a day, I could see oil prices literally jumping over the $100 per barrel mark," so my advice is hop on board now before prices race off the charts.

"It's a very difficult situation where you don't know which side is going to blink first," said Leonard Spector, deputy director of the Monterey Institute of International Studies' Center for Nonproliferation Studies.

It should be known that India, which imports 75 percent of the crude it consumes, some from Iran, is a wild card in any meaningful sanctions directed against Iranian energy products. Recall Moscow a strong ally of Tehran and Beijing, also selling the Iranians various 'items' have a vote on the Security Council on what to do about Iran, once it is referred.

Is oil still "cheap" in relation to where she's heading over the next 6 months or so?
