Iran's head now says that he never threatened to stop selling oil if the U.N. got serious about Iran's plans to build a nuclear facility -- purely for the development of domestic power.
I guess somebody pointed out to him that if they stop selling oil, they will have to do without all that lovely money they get from selling oil. It's not as if Iran produces all than much that the world wants to buy, under the mullahcracy. And if they keep all of their oil for themselves, why they wouldn't need nuclear power in the first place, now would they?
In the words of the esteemed Emily Latilla of Saturday Night Live, "Never mind."
