    No, anything they suggest should be disregarded, they are an enemy of the United States. They have zero intrest in helping us.

    I don't think thats quite the case. If they can do something like rescue our wetlands from the oil spill, they will look great in the world view, while they chastize us for being morons. I think they the political motivation to want to help us, and possibly long-term economic motivation as well, though I'm not sure whether that is there.

    In that case, I suppose you are right, they don't want to help us, they want to help themselves, but that means they would have to help us.

    Might as well give it a try.

    Anybody want to explain what technology or resources Iran has that the US and BP don't have?

    Nope.

    Not that I have any idea what their offer is, but since it involves Iran, I don't want any part of it.

    Not until they clean up their act a bit, anyway.

    Iran has nothing to offer in regards to this spill. Taking their "help" would only slow the process down in reality, and it would give Iran a huge PR victory both internationally and domestically, which would only serve to firm up the clerics position and Ahmadinejad's vis-a-vis a more moderate establishment that seems to be growing within Iran.

    I'm not convinced Iran can help us. It feels too much like A-jad's trying to position himself and that doesn't ring true with me. That little troll is crazy and I wouldn't trust him as far as I can spit. Just saying......

    I don't believe that Iran has the first damned clue how to kill this blowout. However, I think we should take a look at their idea and if it seems at least half way plausible, then go for it.

    Why not, if they can help stop this I don't see a problem with it.

    I changed my mind, we should just ask them what they will do and then steal their idea (assuming it's practical).
