Iran president takes over oil ministry temporarily

PTI: Tehran, May 16 (AFP) Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said he has temporarily assumed the duties of the oil ministry, as the oil cartel OPEC prepares for a biannual meeting in Vienna.

“For now, I myself am the caretaker of the oil ministry,” Ahmadinejad said in a televised speech yesterday, without elaborating.

 On Saturday, Ahmadinejad dismissed oil minister Masoud Mirkazemi, alongside two other ministers, whose portfolios are expected to be merged with other departments as part of a cabinet streamlining.

Then yesterday, he appointed caretakers for the industry and social affairs ministries, but did not name anyone for the oil ministry which is to be integrated with the energy portfolio.

His decision to take charge of Iran’s most-strategic sector came shortly before the 159th OPEC meeting scheduled for June 8 in Vienna, where the oil producers are represented by their ministers.

    Thank God / Allah // unlike the BAHRAIN govt / SAUDI ARABIA govt / YEMENI govt
    the BRITISH govt / the USA govt / we have in AHMADINEJAD a politician whom in
    having a clear direction / he a individual whom firstly consults with the ALMIGHTY.

    Not as USA whom through a decade of republican govt. Republicans blinded
    by greed / blinded by seeking political power / abandoned international law as
    domestic law / they stripped the people of their rights/ then proceeded upon an
    worlwide holy crusade ( lead by self annointed BUSH ) whom declared he was
    commanded by GOD to kill the enemy /take their land possessions / it be t’was
    the Americans now beingGOD’s choosen / able to do as they pleased. /Seems
    such a familiar story one having heard before. //Where did young BUSH get his
    revelations /was it mobile phone that he having had his converstaions with God.

    Ten years of the most corrupt govt the world in seeing left American people upon
    their knees / not prayer but in tears / throughout the world hundreds of thousands
    slaughtered / man /woman child shown no mercy / destruction that beyond belief
    suffering / injustice / that before unknown / bringing rivers of blood / rivers of tears.

    On seeing they would be thrown out of govt / republicans used a burn as destroy
    policy upon their own people. /As removing banking regulation // which placed to
    prevent banking fraud / banking regulation removed bank doors were opened to
    banking fraud that on massive scale /within an short period / the nation bankrupt.

    Every American having now on their backs a burden of debt // they be now under
    the control of the federal reserves // those few whom in having the worlds wealth
    through the federal reserve control /the lifes of every american. // The pick whom
    to be govt / pick whom holding what positions in govt / they making international
    policy / they make domestic policy // via a 24/7 media which control / they can do
    as say as please/ the american people seen treated as but sheep to be fleeced
    their children as but lamb for the slaughter // as Judas delivered Jesus unto his
    enemy / republicans handed control of american people unto the worlds richest
    thus as the cat plays with the mouse before the kill / being the fate of americans.

    It be as one that American people get behind the democrats and BARACK taking
    back control of their lifes // unto the time where democracy / freedom having held
    some true meaning / when Amerca was not a isolated nation / the friend of none
    // it being some will say ISRAEL be our friend. // Such belief idea but only illusion.

    It being time the American people turned the page unto another chapter / leaving
    the past as looking to the future / never again to let a republican party put them in
    chains // where those they had trusted to govern / having had them made slaves.
