Two Can Play at This Game

The president seems to have a change of heart:

WASHINGTON – Dramatically hardening the U.S. reaction to Iran's disputed elections and bloody aftermath, President Barack Obama condemned the violence against protesters Tuesday and lent his strongest support yet to their accusations the hardline victory was a fraud.

At first I was puzzled by this shift in attitude, then it struck me: Oil. The president wants a regime change in order to give the US a foothold in this oil rich region. Now that he's got a car company, he needs oil to run them. I suspect Biden is the real brains behind this operation - Obama is just his puppet.

So there you have it. We're Imperialists. The Europeans hate us. Cronies getting rich. Change.
