Does Iran plan to build this pipeline through Turkey, Iraq, or Saudi Arabia and Jordan? I think they are blowing smoke.

Speaking of blowing... that'll make a nice, shiny, target to blow up to enforce sanctions. Pipeline? What pipeline?

You are spot on correct.Iraq is more friend to Iran than to the U.S. I guess you can't get friends even spending a couple trillion dollars for Iraq's freedom ,Ha,Ha, yeah freedom, thats it ,thats the ticket.

Why is it that when "ANY" middle eastern subject is being discussed someone invariably brings up targeting,bombing and killing by the U.S.Is murder the centerpiece of U.S. foreign policy? and ask yourself this ,while we may be the top dog now, things always change.Would you want other nations to dictate to us what to do or be attacked?

Right, and the US military personnel still in Iraq will direct traffic around the construction crew.

Use the Israeli boundary technology to prevent illegal immigration. We payed them to build the best so why do we just put up raggedy fences?

Turkey already has gas pipeline from Iran feeding 0.5- 1.0 trillion cubic feet per year of gas and was planning to up size it even 6 years ago with some work going on.Turkey or Iraq can be the two candidates to host this pipe line.

Gas pipe line failures are easy to fix even if they come through corrosion or similar reasons.Even Canada has 1000 pipe line failures and fix ups and America has more than 3000 failures and fix ups per year and they are due to chemical, mechanical or corrosion reasons.

Oil pipe line failures are the ones that are disasters with spills and environmental hazards.Gas pipeline coming out of Iran will carry sales gas or purified gas with no sweat at all.
