    Iran to Import Water From Tajikistan | OOSKAnews

    The drought is increasing in severity every year. 25% less waterfall in a decade.

    In 2010, the top ten countries that buy oil from Iran are Japan, China, India, South Korea, Italy, Turkey, France, South Africa, Taiwan and Greece.

    So, they buy wheat from the US? :razz:

    It's not hard to see the damage.

    Good thing they don't need corn from us.

    BTW- Iran borders some hefty bodies of water.

    This may be a good thing, the more people who are unhappy with the government the better. A shortage of food could help bring down that government.
