Iran Sends Rare Letter to US

A "magnetic" bomb attached to a car exploded last Wednesday in Iran, killing a top Iranian nuclear scientist and his driver. Iran claims in their letter that they have direct evidence that the US is responsible. Tensions have been escalating in recent days, with Iran continuing in their nuclear efforts by enriching uranium in underground bunkers (which can then be weaponized), and a new measures signed by President Obama that would prevent countries from purchasing Iranian oil (proceeds from which Iran depends on for feeding their people). Iranian boats also approached US vessels in the strait of Hormuz on Friday. This Middle-Eastern hot spot seems to be getting hotter. The impact on the everyday American? Oil costs continue to rise which will increase the costs of almost everything else in our lives. And again, we are drawn to another international drama in a god-forsaken place thousands of miles away, involving a crazy leader who has no qualms with ending our existence.
