    Frank, can we hold countries to a contract when we are somewhat iffy in keeping our word. We had a contract with Iran, TPP, NAFTA, and I believe we signed a Global Warming agreement too. And now there is talk of not supporting NATO against Putin's designs on Estonia, and if it falls under Russian hegemony, Latvia and Lithuania are not far behind. I cite this as a possible reason for other countries whom we have offended repeatedly to not honor their OPEC agreement to transact in dollars. But I am not very knowledgeable about high finance, so is it possible we have driven our partner's good will away? Can the interested parties opt for another currency?

    I actually meant to mention this in my post but it was already getting long winded...Iran deal will be the only one comparable here...but that debate will just go on forever...I'm not sure what you mean by "interested parties" opec is an interested party under contract that cannot opt for another currency, europe is just as much an interested party not under the contract and can opt for any currency they like but opec nations can only accept dollars from them.

    You do know we assassinated their leader and installed a puppet government there in 1953, no? Pretty sure that was the 1st of many, always-failed "regime changes".
