`` I think you have heard, the big shots have a feud with Iran. Iranians are building facilities for producing electricity through nuclear energy. The big shots are saying, no, you are intending on manufacturing weapons, and Iranians are denying that claim, saying ``we just want to produce electricity.`` ``And they are pressing them relentlessly, they have sanctioned them and now they have come to oil sanctions, and in July we expect the sanctions to kick off. Iran is the second biggest producer of oil, after Saudi Arabia, if Iran's oil is yanked off the market the price of oil that you think is high now, I do not know what levels will be reached then.`` Source: National address on commemoration of Labor Day, May 1st, 2012 My take: Tanzania may have a vested interest in the Iranian nuclear debacle. Being a potential major supplier of Uranium it stands to gain from trading with Iran, should the nuclear facilities start demanding the raw material once they start churning out nuclear energy. Or nuclear bombs. However Tanzania remains a desperately dependent economy supported by the same "big shots" that are trying to stifle Iran's nuclear agenda, receiving endless aid from mosquito nets to budget support. Thus Tanzania's move to side with Iran may be perceived as biting the hand that feeds it, and may prove ill advised.
