Why attack Iran’s nuclear facilities when striking their oil infrastructure would be much more effective in the scope of a US-led preventive war? Sure, oil prices might skyrocket and the world economy might collapse. But, hey, that’s the price you pay for security.

Such a scenario is not a nightmare or an outtake from a remake of Stanley Kubrick’s “Dr. Strangelove,” but part of a serious recommendation made by two neoconservatives in case sanctions fail to persuade Iran to abandon its enrichment of uranium, a process that can be used to make nuclear weapons or fuel for peaceful energy production.

  1. “A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.”
    ( Declaration of Independence : July 4, 1776 )

    A ” president” whose acts consist only in lie, theft, torture, murder, manipulation, who does all the machiavellian tricks for maintaining his power, to enhance more and more his financial profits and the profits of those few who support him; who systematically undermines every written line of US Constitution, who operates outside any national and international system of laws or morality, should have been imprisoned for a long time…
    Every crime of this charlatan “president” has an overwhelming proof!

    “Look back over the past, with its changing empires that rose and fell, and you can forsee the future, too.” -(Marcus Aurelius)
    If this “president” charlatan and his accomplices is not stopped and indicted now, there is no future to foorsee at all!!
