Iran plans to cut gas imports, subsidies (Andrea R. Mihailescu, July 3, 2006, THE WASHINGTON TIMES)

Iran, which relies on imports for almost half its refined petroleum products, plans to halt those imports and introduce gasoline rationing later this year, the government announced.

The decision appears related to a plan to allow the nation's heavily subsidized gasoline to spike in price in order to reduce the smuggling of fuel to neighboring countries, a practice that aggravates shortages and costs the country billions of dollars every year.

One of the distinguishing features of the Long War is that it has never been existential for we parliamentary democrats because our foes' ideologies preclude their organizing their states/societies in any kind of sensible fashion. Witness the Iranian regime destabilizing itself.
