Oil rules in the West’s response to Iran

‘It is the Iranian people who will suffer most from sanctions, threats and war. They should not be made to pay either for the belligerence of the US and its allies or for the provocative positions of the Iranian government’ rightly points out Tarja Cronberg chairwomen of the European Parliament’s delegation for relations with Iran: http://www.morningstaronline.co.uk/index.php/news/content/view/full/115647  This excellent article in the Morning Star also explains the silence towards the human rights abuses in Bahrain. Oil once again is the dominant interest to dig the west out of the crisis created by its marriage to capitalism.
