LETS SET THE SCENE!
Summer or Autumn of next year, on the brink of war, Iran and Israel sit down for talks. After a year of escalating sanctions from the US and Israel, Iran’s economy is in pieces, there are wide spread shortages of food, rolling blackouts in all major cities, and growing civil unrest. With no other choice, Iran agree to abandon their nuclear ambitions and sign a nuclear proliferation treaty with Israel.
Netanyahu praised for diverting potential nuclear war.
Then we give Iran billions of dollars a year to maintain their peace with Israel!
Iran’s economy is in no trouble what so ever. They sit atop enormous natural gas reserves — never mind the oil. They have all the fuel they need or will ever need. They are not ever going to be suffering “rolling blackouts” unless it’s intentional.
Iran sells every last drop of oil that it pulls out of the ground, just as fast as it can pump it out. There are plenty of buyers, starting with China. There is plenty of cash rolling in.
China was already Iran’s biggest customer before the west decided to stop competing with them…
Given how inaccurate all the other information we’ve been spoon-fed about Iran is, I doubt that their currency is suffering at all. But let’s pretend their weak currency is the one claim that is true — so what? We’ve been told for years that a weak dollar is great for our country, and our government has been complaining for years about China artificially weakening their currency (undervalued) in order to benefit their economy. Why is it in the case of Iran — AND ONLY IRAN — where a weak currency is suddenly bad?
