We have an issue with Iran, and it's not about the nukes

A friend of mine told me back in 2004 that the cause of the Iraq war wasn't oil per se, but the fact that Hussein was going to start selling oil to Europe for euros and other forms of European currency. She told me all about reserve currency and petrodollars and I had to admit, it made sense. Well, guess what. Because of sanctions from the US and Europe, rumor has it that Iran is selling its oil to India, China, whoever. Is the currency petrodollars? Fuck no!

We will no doubt be dropping bombs on the oil fields soon.
