Iran, OccupyDC, and world domination

I’ll be seating in a conference room at Washington D.C.’s Hudson Institute. Subject being scheduled a while ago, who would have known threats of an Israeli strike on Iranian nuclear facilities and a real possibility of a shipping closure in the strategic Straits of Hormuz would be hardening as they have, so quickly?

Iran, OccupyDC, and world domination

Russ Imrie February 8, 2012

In an hour, I’ll be seating in a conference room at Washington D.C.’s Hudson Institute. Subject being scheduled a while ago, who would have known threats of an Israeli strike on Iranian nuclear facilities and a real possibility of a shipping closure in the strategic Straits of Hormuz would be hardening as they have, so quickly?
This is very serious stuff for a player in all this, the United States. A presidential race is up and running and Syria is verging on total, bloody civil war. Across the street from a K Street coffee shop where I’m sitting, tents of the occupy movement stand spotlighting class inequities in a nation struggling with war and an unsavory economic nexus.

Today’s forum at Hudson is to focus on Iranian moves in Latin America, including an alleged nefarious plot involving bombs in public places against sectarian religious rival Suni Saudi Arabian diplomats. Of course Venezuela and her demon Chavez is in the midst of many deliberations on Iranian ties. Biggest irony in this is the fact that the U. S. would be more dependent on Venezuela’s nearby oil reserves if Iran disrupts oil from Mideast Producers.
Like an oil spill, it’s a big, sticky, dangerous mess.
Stay tuned for my follow-up post later today.
