It's NOT about OIL, its about IMPERIAL HEGEMONY.
It's about the US dollar, if the IRAN were HAITI it wouldn't even be news, but Haiti has NO oil, the USA is willing to pay for the IRAN oil with US dollars, but IRAN don't want phony paper money, they want gold for their oil, and this is where the problem starts, the USA has no gold.
So if the USA wants something you have a choice you accept their dollars, or they bomb your country into the stone age and kill all your children with dysentary by bombing the sewage/water treatment plants.
Not much of a choice, but IRAN is standing tall to the USA bully and the entire world is watching. If Iran pull's this off the USA is toast.
Fear the bully at the end of his game, he's quite likely to become suicidal. MAD ... Mutually Assured Destruction is still an option held dear by the Christian Right that controls the USA.
