Michael Klare’s article on the upcoming war with Iran, “Oil, Geopolitics, and the Coming War with Iran,” was CommonDream’s most forwarded article this week. I have already talked about the coming war with Iran and its possible effects on Taiwan, but Klare’s article is good overview of some of the strategic issues. It does leave out one factor that some analysts consider an important driver of the illegal invasion of Iraq, Hussein’s decision to switch from figuring oil prices in dollars to using Euros. Such a move would be a strike at the US standard of living that no Administration can ignore. Iran has been contemplating a similar move.
