Iran's Real WMD: The Oil Bourse

I've been perusing several stories from financial boards in relation to the Iranian threat and noted many here are fomenting an idea that Iran wants nuclear weapons for an offensive nuclear jihad/holocaust. Meanwhile an underlying issue goes un-addressed, that issue is the pending Iranian oil bourse which is a direct threat to the petrodollar and US economy.

Here's some references in relation to the plan:

Iran's Ayatollah could Unleash the "Oil Weapon" in 2006, Rattling Global Markets

The Proposed Iranian Oil Bourse
The man that actually did demand Euro for his oil was Saddam Hussein in 2000. At first, his demand was met with ridicule, later with neglect, but as it became clearer that he meant business, political pressure was exerted to change his mind. When other countries, like Iran, wanted payment in other currencies, most notably Euro and Yen, the danger to the dollar was clear and present, and a punitive action was in order. Bush’s Shock-and-Awe in Iraq was not about Saddam’s nuclear capabilities, about defending human rights, about spreading democracy, or even about seizing oil fields; it was about defending the dollar, ergo the American Empire. It was about setting an example that anyone who demanded payment in currencies other than U.S. Dollars would be likewise punished.

Petrodollar Warfare: Dollars, Euros and the Upcoming Iranian Oil Bourse
Similar to the Iraq war, military operations against Iran relate to the macroeconomics of ‘petrodollar recycling’ and the unpublicized but real challenge to U.S. dollar supremacy from the euro as an alternative oil transaction currency.

The Iranian Threat: The Bomb or the Euro?

Iran does not pose a threat to the United State because of its nuclear projects, its WMD, or its support to "terrorists organizations" as the American administration is claiming, but in its attempt to re-shape the global economical system by converting it from a petrodollar to a petroeuro system.


It seems highly more plausible if your the 2nd largest producer of crude to control more of the oil market and eliminate dollar dependency, rather than launching nukes and insuring self destruction.

Considering the lies in the past, I have yet to understand why people believe the current Washington administration in that it's about WMD's again. Maybe we must conclude that the underlying human conscience is that it's okay to murder and pillage as long as you can get away with it...well so much for civilization.

Russia defusing the US nuclear threat propaganda which gives a big green light to Iranian oil bourse.

Iran backs Russian uranium enrichment plan
MOSCOW (AFP) - Iran said that it backed a plan to enrich its uranium in Russia to defuse an international row over its nuclear power programme, but warned against Western attempts to put the debate before the United Nations.
