- Who Has Authorized America to Make the Countries of the World Tailor Their Policies to Americas Measurements, & If They Dont Oblige, Then War Should Be Waged Against Them? How Can One Understand Americas Call for Democracy If It Does Not Permit a Difference of Opinion Even in Issues of a Regional Character, to Say Nothing of International Ones? Saddam Hussein Don't Let Them Trick Us Into Another War http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article16077.htm Yes, Iran does need fuel.
"The Bush administration has alternately said that Iran has a secret nuclear weapons program or wants one. Without being able to prove those claims, the White House has made its case by implication, beginning with the point that Iran has ample oil reserves for its energy needs.
Ford's team commended Iran's decision to build a massive nuclear energy industry, noting in a declassified 1975 strategy paper that Tehran needed to "prepare against the time -- about 15 years in the future -- when Iranian oil production is expected to decline sharply."
Estimates of Iran's oil reserves were smaller then than they are now, but energy experts and U.S. intelligence estimates continue to project that Iran will need an alternative energy source in the coming decades. Iran's population has more than doubled since the 1970s, and its energy demands have increased even more."
"Lacking direct evidence, Bush administration officials argue that Iran's nuclear program must be a cover for bomb-making. Vice President Cheney recently said, "They're already sitting on an awful lot of oil and gas. Nobody can figure why they need nuclear as well to generate energy."
Yet Cheney, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld and outgoing Deputy Secretary Paul Wolfowitz held key national security posts when the Ford administration made the opposite argument 30 years ago."
