If we attacked Iran for oil, it would validate the lies the mullahs have been telling the people for the last forty years. The result; Not just the mullahs but, the people would resist.

As so would the world body.

The USA does not make a habit of imperialism. Did no one notice our actions towards our conquered enemies after WWII? What part of Germany, Italy, and Japan do we maintain US Sovereignty?

What resources do we steal from those nations?

which is it?
It "would be great for the u.s." if the rest of the world collapse if we allow the M.E. problem players to hike the prices of/control their oil
or is that we don't need the oil?
I guess you missed the <sarc> part. That's short for sarcasm.
If you missed something that obvious I really shouldn't be replying to you.
I'm just here to help.
