What if Soros is right?

Mr Soros also predicted the Iranian regime would be overthrown in the "bloodiest of the revolutions".
.
Revolts in Libya were partly the result of "revulsion against a corruption" fed by the misuse of oil money, he added.

More "transparency and accountability" was needed from other producers such as Russia and Saudi Arabia he said.

'Rebelled'

Libya produces 1.6 million barrels of oil per day and is the 17th largest producer in the world.

And Colonel Gaddafi's hold on power has been dependent on the billions of dollars in oil revenue that pour into the country.

Talking of the wave of governments being challenged in North Africa and the Middle East, Mr Soros said: "What has caused the revolutions is a revulsion against a corruption that is fed by the misuse of natural resources like for instance in Libya.

"Transparency and even more importantly accountability in the use of natural resources is what you need for people living in those countries to get the benefit of those national resources.

"Libya produced enormous wealth which Gaddafi took as his own and now the people rebelled against it."
'Tremendous improvement'

Asked whether there should be more transparency with what happened to oil incomes, Mr Soros said: "Very much so."

.
We know Soros is a dangerously rich nut, but if he's right about Iran, we're wrong about the Middle East. I think it's WAY too soon to call it one way or the other. Let's surmise for a second though, what effect would it have on the M.E. if the current Iranian ruling group was ousted? That would certainly mean a moderation of attitude about the west and non-Islamic culture.
.
CERTAINLY there's nowhere for Iran to GO but toward moderation and away from the current Sharia driven, Jihadi, Wahhabist culture. And if Iran quits promoting that, Pakistan would both welcome them BACK, and make them easier to find!
