Rein in the rush to a war in Iran :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Commentary

ENERGY IS POLITICS and an US attack on Iran is a possibility during the last months of Bush's presidency. What will that mean for energy price? What should we do to be prepared if oil price is going through the roof.

Energy companies in Finland have been giving statements about possible insufficient supply of energy (electricity) during the coming winter. They are referring to Russian's not being able to deliver electricity through the grid while they are going to need all their energy for own use.

We never know how well things have been prepared behind the curtains. Or what do you think? We might be moving to green energy while it's important to have alternatives, just in case.

Rein in the rush to a war in Iran :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Commentary: "'If Iran had a nuclear weapon, it'd be a dangerous threat to world peace,' President Bush said.

'So I told people that if you're interested in avoiding World War III, it seems like you ought to be interested in preventing them from having the knowledge necessary to make a nuclear weapon.'

The president is right to talk tough about stopping nuclear proliferation in Iran, which is engaged in uranium enrichment ostensibly to develop nuclear weapons.

Its Revolutionary Guard corps has supported terrorists in Iraq and Afghanistan. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has threatened to destroy Israel. Durbin is with Bush in acknowledging the threat. 'Make no mistake, Iran cannot be ignored,' Durbin said.

'It has fostered a foreign policy that supports some of the worst actions in the Middle East, from Hezbollah to Hamas.'"
