It seems rather odd that the US president is pushing so hard to get sanctions on Iran. Knowing that sanctions tend to hurt the people much more than the elite leadership. Like the WMDs of the past ("We know Saddam has got them,. bla bla,."), this new threat of a 'nuke' in Iran seems like a lame rational reaching for a reason for the further push for sanctions.
Does it not seem more likely that the sanctions have much more to do with the oil market? Every oil producing country that has or threatens to sell oil in any other currency than the US dollar is put on the american enemies list,. called out as a terrorist, or a failed regime, or just invaded and occupied. Is this not clear to everyone by this point, or do people still buy this silly spinning pile of dung? It is still all about oil and power.
