Re: But today I'm a reformed character

Correct. That's what the US would like to happen, though, and it is quite prepared to go to great lengths to retain the majority of energy sales in USD.

They didn't bomb Saddam's Iraq back into the Stone Age because of WMD, that was only the excuse. Saddam started selling oil in EUR, and the US could not afford that idea to take root in the Middle East so they took down the guy they installed themselves (a fact they tend to casually gloss over).
