THE STORY BEHIND THE IRAN CONFLICT
US, Israel, France and Saudi Arabia are working overtime to make sure that any deal with Iran is killed.
Saudi Arabia is holding out huge arms sales to France in exchange for their agreement to help gum up the works with Iran. So much for the Socialist government in Paris - they've turned out as bad, if not worse, than the conservatives.
The US and UK are likely to extract some big weapons contracts from the Saudi monarchy as well before all this is over. Israel is still itching for a chance to launch an attack on Iran.
I read years ago that the primary reason Iran wants nuclear power is because they sell much of their fossil fuels to fund their economy. Since those fuels are increasingly getting scarce they want to use nuclear power for domestic purposes and continue to sell oil for profit.
After the current mess in Fukushima it is hard to imagine why any country would want to continue with nuclear power. Use the sun - its free and abundant.
