Iran Drops the Oil Weapon

Today, Iran announced that it would not seek to use its oil exports as a political weapon against those pressing Iran on its nuclear program. As I blogged about a few days ago, Iran's oil weapon should always have been considered less scary that many made it out to be.

Now is the time to keep the pressure on. Iran seems to be slightly more conciliatory lately, perhaps reacting to the National Security Strategy or the possibility of civil war in Iraq. Perhaps there is some light at the end of the tunnel.
