Well, it matters to your original question.
Im not exactly sure how iran operates, is the oil owned by the state or by private citizens?
If its owned by the state then yeah, if its owned privately then it could just be sitting in a wearhouse unused.
Is the state trying to free itself from oil dependency by developing its own in house energy alternative?
The answer is probably no, but you would have to find out to have an answer to>why they'd start enriching uranium for power when they have all that oil laying around that they can't sell..
My question would be, why arnt they using solar as they have quite a damn good source.
Im also pretty bored haha.
