Obviously Washington's interests are those of the Saudis and those of the oil companies... they own both political parties over here.

AFTERALL the USA must punish Iran for not kissing their behinds and inisting on handling their own natural resources, that is the third largest oil field in the world.

How dare Iran hold on to its own oil and not give the american greedy gusses like Halliburton and the texas oil cartels, the chance to control Iran's oil and get even richer off of it.

After all the USA must steal all the resources of the world, and the hell with the fact that Iran would rather own, and get rich off its own oil.

Those horrible Iranese. The USA will have to invade them to steal their oil on the pretense of Iran being a danger to American billionaire oil men.
Omg
