'THE DEVIL WE KNOW' is the title of a new book recently out,written by retired CIA operative Bob Baur. In his book he describes many of the scenarios concerning Iran, that I have written about previously.One being, the taking out of the tanker traffic in the GULF OF HORMUZ in the event of an attack on their country by Israel or the United States. But as Mr. Baur points out in his book, a much more serious consequence would be the likelihood that the Iranian airforce would most certainly destroy the oil facilities in Saudi Arabia. They have the military capability to accomplish both of these objectives within a matter of minuets.If this did occur it would have the immediate effect of removing sixty five percent of the proven oil reserves and seventeen million barrels of oil per day from the world markets for at least two years.Life as we know it would cease and countries around the world would descend into chaos.... When a country has the ability to economically blackmail the world "They are a super power"and Iran is such a country. I suspect this is the reason the United States and the United Nations has not allowed Israel to push the Bush administration into this attack already. Much has changed in the thirty years since the Iranian revolution, which was directly precipitated by the CIA egineered overthrow in 1953 of Iran's popular leader, Muhammad Mossadeq, subsequently followed by the installation of a puppet dictator, Muhammad Reza Pahlavi, that danced to whatever tune the United States government told him to, especially concerning the Iranian oil reserves. The CIA also trained an Iranian version of the SS secret police that set about the country killing, raping, torturing and incarcerating the people who exhibited the least bit of descent to this un-holy governance and theft of their liberty,national wealth, and most basic human rights. And now we know who the devil is!! If any reasonable person were to walk in the Iranian's shoes, and had the knowledge and memories of what has already been inflicted on them by the United States, there could be little doubt that, this country will not hesitate to act in any way it must to prevent their enslavement by the United States again. [Remember the American hostage crises] I believe everyone of them would rather die first,and I for one understand!! This idea of an "American dream" is fine, but if you have to destroy your neighbor in order to attain it, then I believe right after the dream you will discover that you have woke up in hell.
