trading petroleum products for Euros instead of dollars.

If the dollar goes all the way down the toilet, so does the U.S.

Not that Bush/Cheney & Co could care less. After all, don't you think their loot is safely stashed in gold somewhere in Paraguay?

Nonetheless, they are not the only two players in the game. And if the U.S. dollar becomes worthless, think how many Neocons would be offing themselves.

Viewed in this light, attacking Iran is their answer.

The problem is that Neocons are people who can't walk and chew gum at the same time. Do they really believe that the rest of the world, especially Russia and China, are just going to sit idly by and do nothing?
