More News on Iran's Oil Bourse

Monday, January 30, 2006

There's been a lot of buzz on the net recently about Iran's decision to switch to the Euro.

Why are Turkey, Egypt and Saudi Arabia being pushed into a race of weapons build-up by bringing up the possibility that they may also acquire nuclear weapons?

Iran will open its petroleum market in March. Euro will replace Dollar in the petroleum trade. This will constitute a major attack on a vital component of the American Empire.
