Hello Sp4rrowh4wk, Thanks for weighing in on this. You are polite as always, and I appreciate your encouragement, even if we are not necessarily on target in this instance. I was thinking that the best place to hit the regime is where it hurts the most. In the oil. Now, oil installations are all going to be heavily guarded, but there are things that an insider at say a refinery could do without that much risk to himself. Accidents happen easily, especially when you are dealing with old, dilapidated equipment. Imagine, hypothetically, that a valve that needs to be open during regular operation were to be closed (by mistake, of course ), and that the guy who was monitoring the process had to go to the bathroom at that exact instance (when nature calls, you have to answer). As a result, an important pipe will burst, forcing the plant to shut down. Now, to restart the plant, we obviously have to be very careful. We wouldn't want another accident to happen. So it is important that everyone takes their time and follows all safety precautions to the letter. Above all, no rush. In fact, we probably shouldn't start until tomorrow, to make sure everyone is well rested. And perhaps we should organize a (long) meeting in the morning, to make sure that everyone really knows exactly what they need to do, when we eventually get around to restarting. OK, so now it is almost lunch time. Let's wait until everyone has eaten before getting started. Etc. You get the picture. Of course, I have no idea how Green Iran's oil workers are. On the executive level, everyone is obviously a regime stooge. From the level of foreman and down, however, it is not so clear. Perhaps a targeted persuasion campaign could be mounted.
