War with Iran

This SOB won't be happy until we're at war with the entire Middle East.

"Bush insists Iran is sending weapons to Iraq"
"...President Bush said today there is no doubt the Iranian government is providing armor-piercing weapons to kill American soldiers in Iraq."


http://chron.com/disp/story.mpl/front/4552983.html

Reminds me of the 'ol WMD argument.

I know it. :icon_bigg

We don't need to go to war with Iran and I don't think their government is supplying the Iraqis with weapons.

The war on 'terror' is BS. 'Terror' is such a broad term that you could apply it to any situation you like.

Most all banks send their money to the federal reserve which acts as a central bank.

Wrong again.

The US dollar as been freely floating on the currency exchange markets since 1975. We are not on a gold standard and haven't been for three decades.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_dollar

The purpose of Iran shifting to the Euro for it's foreign exchange currency is so that the Iranian central bank would not have to hold a large amount of US dollars to pay for foreign goods. The Euro offers an alternative currency for foreign countries to hold in their central banks. I do believe that Iran is the only country to do this.

Foreign Goods? Don't you mean OIL?

The world buys and sells oil in USD.

Maybe why we're pressing down Iran so much. And maybe the reason why we went into Iraq. Saddam was in favor of the Euro. If more countries start cashing in their dollars then the USA is in trouble 'cause we dang sure can't afford it.

Yes, it's about the trade of oil primarily, but secondary goods are also effected by this currency change. Iran has basically tied itself and it's economic engine to Europe instead of the US.

There is no proof of this, only speculation. Stop spreading rumors.

Yes, this would be a problem for us if countries did this. It would be devastating if OPEC decided to do this as a whole. This system basically allows the US to run a trade deficit with the rest of the world with little to know economic consequences. It works by allowing other countries to buy our dollars with their goods to pay for their energy on the world market. The US dollar is backed by the US economy and is printed by the US government, who then pays for the goods imported by other countries. It's sort of of like getting something for nothing really, since the US dollar is technically just a sheet of cotton paper which only has a representative face value while the goods we import have tangible value and represent the labor of their exporting country.
