Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I can't think of a particular action where the forces of Law and OrderTM have decided to use FIRE BOMBS against protestors

If you lived in the US, you'd be thinking of Philadelphia and Waco, at least.

Oil securities, that depends who ends up in charge after regieme change, your oil securities could end up worth as much as toilet paper.

Toilet paper? That remark is just trifling, ceebs. Why you wanna play the history of commodities trading like that?

The two Obama quotes you put out are both from a point chronologically much later then the  Iranian TV broadcast which the original statement perportedly comes from.

"much later," mmm, no.

CBS Evening News broadcasts at 7pm EST, daily. See CBS transcript (right) of a recorded interview with Obama, televised 19 June 2009 at 7pm.

07:00:00 p.m. Friday June 19, 2009 in America/New_York  converts to
03:30:00 a.m. Saturday June 20, 2009 in Asia/Tehran
(Time Zone Converter)

The White House HTML issue (left) that you identified is dated 20 June 2009.

Now the absurd question before us is to which statement the anonymous Iranian translator refers. Are you willing to argue an "Iranian Satellite TV" broadcast of President Obama speaking about Iran "this morning" (3:30 a.m., 20 June 2009) was not a copy of the CBS Evening News interview?

And have you ever met a M-16 "media analyst"? I have. In NYC. So I'm betting the Iranian Satellite TV broadcast was lifted straight up from Time-Warner cable. Or Comcast. Or Cox ...

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
