    Iranian parliament speaker Ali Larijani said yesterday that Tehran would prefer Democrat presidential hopeful Barack Obama in the White House next year, and also ruled out any US attack on his country.

    "We are leaning more in favour of Barack Obama because he is more flexible and rational, even though we know American policy will not change that much," Larijani said at a Press conference during a visit to Bahrain.

    He said that the main focus of yesterday's meeting with His Majesty the King, Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, was economic and political issues relating to the Kingdom and the GCC. The gas trade between Iran and Bahrain is going strong, he said. "A while ago, I met the Minister for Oil, Dr Ali Mirza. There is no ambiguity. We are in full agreement on this subject," he said.

    The gas deal with Iran will only enhance the potential for Bahrain economically. Negotiations will continue on this front, he added.

    Iran's Shura supports the deal with Bahrain. The gas deal that Bahrain has entered into with Iran will benefit the Kingdom. But we also want the businesses here to invest in Iran, he said.

    Revealing his animosity for the US he said that the US has so far been against at least some countries of the Middle East. The Palestinians, for example, voted for Hamas, but this was not convenient for the US government. That is how Abbas Mahmoud's Fatah came into the picture, he said. Even in Iraq the people voted for a Nationalist Parliament.

    Iran's foreign policy for the region hinges on cooperation between the neighbours. "We are all part of the Islamic bloc of countries and Iran is no threat for these countries," he said. Referring to the Iran-Iraq war he said, it was Saddam's initiative and not Iranian.
    'Iran prefers Obama'

    This is a really good article IMHO, if you read between the lines you will notice that Russia and Iran are attempting to set up a cartel of gas producing states much like OPEC to dictate the price of natural gas. There are lots of implications here for the United States if we do not get tough and a real energy solution for this country that includes our own sources of natural gas, nuclear, oil, wind solar, tidal, and bio fuels,, and whatever else will keep the United States from being at the mercy of yet another two nations that do not have our best intrests at heart.

    Of course Iran wants Comrade Hussein in office. Then they can make all the nuclear weapons they want without being bothered.

    What happens when you have an administration like Bush's is that your extremism begets more extremism. When we elect a president with a clear head and a rational mind to deal with countries like Iran, we'll get real results. When you have a fundamental president that refuses to even acknowledge a country like Iran, they start developing nukes and elect leaders like ahmadinejad.

    When we sat down with the North Koreans, what happened? They dismantled their nukes and we made progress with the country. I think the same can be done elsewhere.

    Now, if we exhaust every single diplomatic option ad infinitum and the country is still threatening us or its neighbors, then we blow it out of the sky. I agree with Obama that we haven't done enough to work with Iran, yet.

    No, you're right. North Korea actually had a nuclear bomb. They actually had 7 or 8 of them.
