It's all been set up. First the CIA deposed the shah and installed a dictator into Iran, (see <http://www.truedemocracy.net/w01/3.html>) and now this.

Section: Daily Dispatches >From Agence France-Presse Monday, December 18, 2006 http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20061218/wl_mideast_afp/iranforexbank_061218... Iran announced it has ordered the central bank to use euros for foreign transactions and transform the state's dollar-denominated assets held abroad into the single European currency. "The government has ordered the central bank to replace the dollar with the euro to limit the problems of the executive organs in commercial transactions," government spokesman Gholam Hossein Elham told reporters Monday. "We will also employ this change for Iranian assets (in dollars) held abroad." Elham implied that the move would apply to oil revenues from the world's No. 4 crude producer, although it remains to be seen how this would be received by the market. "Foreign income sources and oil revenues will be calculated in euros and we will receive them in euros in order to put an end to our dependence on the dollar," Elham said. The move comes amid mounting pressure from the United States for the UN Security Council to agree sanctions against Iran over its controversial nuclear programme. Bankers in Iran have complained in recent weeks that it was becoming increasingly difficult to receive Iranian-held money denominated in dollars from European bank accounts. They said that this was because of US pressure on European banking giants not to allow dollar-denominated funds to be sent into, or out of, the Islamic republic. Elham added that Iran's budget would in future be calculated in euros. "Until now the budget has been calculated according to revenues in dollars, but this calculation will now change," he said. * * * Join GATA at the 2007 Vancouver Resource Investment Conference Vancouver Convention and Exhibition Centre Sunday and Monday, January 21 and 22, 2007 http://www.cambridgeconferences.com/ch_jan2007.html Admission is free for those who register in advance.
