    For once I might be tentatively on the bankers' side...why shouldn't they do business with Iran just because America might want to bomb it at some point?!

    You are right BK, I was on auto-pilot and didn't even bother to read through the article. So the “hiding” is actually the banks dealing with Someone not of their liking... In that case, the US has been hiding money for ages...

    Isn't Iran part of the “axis of evil”? remember that?
    strange how it's normal now to support the “rebels”. I always thought they were our “enemy”.
