Can those Iranians vote?


If so, They'll all be getting "Obama phones" soon.

This unilateral attack on Iran will not go unpunish!
.
Whatever rights we got on nuclear development so does Iran! We both signed the NPT!
.
And yet we are conducting a unprovoked war on Iran. A war that began in the 1980's with Iraq as a puppet. This will not go unpunish and Persia will take revenge in the harshest way any historian will remember. It is imperative that Persia take all of its energy and save it to punch the crap out of it's enemies!

Its clear that Iran cares more about a nuclear weapon than it's people.

Was Iran seeking nuclear technology in the 1950's or 1960's or 1980's? You overthrew their government and put the Shah in the 50's. Then you encourage Hussein to attack them in the 80's. They are responding to the escalation that the US (invador of Iran's neighbors: Afghanistan and Ira) and the illegal nuclearization of Israel that France helped with throughout the 1970's.

Because Iran is more interested in obtaining a weapon, the people will suffer. Does your Government care more if Iran becomes a power or if their people survive?

Currency fluctuations are the market phenomenon. The greedy traders see in it a golden opportunity to make money. The speculation driven br greed and fear generates wide pendulum like swing. Such a swing could be tamed by fiscal dose including short term borrowings from friendly countries. Borrowing a billion dollar today from one country and another billion from another friendly nation tomorrow and so on and so forth and then paying off the first with the last on FIFO basis stops the crazy tremor. The dose be administered until speculative fever ges down.
This currency storm is likely to blow in entire Middle East irrespective of the fact if its under sanctions are not. It has its own dynamics. It is high time to develop an alternative world currency reserve system like BRICS envisaged in New Dehli recently which can withhold such a manuplative conspiracy.
This phase will be over soon by skilful handling. Let Shiaites take a pilgrimage to Imam Reza and Masooma Qum in millions to weather this sandy storm.

If a republican governor can be elected like Chris Christie in New Jersey, voting in the United States is the most powerful force in the universe. Something you will never know about, unfortunately. Gubmint news for you 24/7 isn't it?
