Default Re: The International Fit Up Of Iran. . .

I do think it is funny that Iran claims their nuclear program is strictly for power generation. First, they are sitting on massive oil and natural gas reserves, so its not like nuclear is the only way to generate power there.

Second, their power demands really are not all that high. Outside the ruling elite, the general population does not have 3 TVs, 2 computers, and a hundred electric lights burning the way Americans do. Irans power consumption is small, and unless they are planning on building some massive industrial facilities (for building tanks and ICBMs maybe?), just what do they really need several reactors for?

That being said, the US has been itching for a fight with Iran since the '70s, so this will likely give them the cover story they need for an attack.
