Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Well I wouldn't really call Waco a political protest (and many of the reports of fire bombs do seem to come from right wirng conspiracy sites)

You have to admit that it would be one of the first priorities for outside companies after any change in government through overthrow would be to make sure that all the outstanding oil contracts remain valid.  It could be that the new govrnment might declare that some were gained illegally through bribery of government officials, and hence annul them.

The whie house speach at 3:30 am Tehran would put it at 7:am GMT which is an hour after Drew posted it as being reported 'earlier this morning' so yes I am suggesting that this was not that broadcast, although with the difference in time zones it may be there is a degree of confusion.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
