Which seems sensible from a "we're scared of brown people" standpoint, but
from Irans standpoint ... I would reject that plan as well.  If they
really were (a big if) interested in modern electrical power
infrastructure to tie their developing country to, why shackle yourself to
the goodwill of others to provide the necessary fuel ?

Again, it seems like a perfect role reversal, and if I were Iran I would
balk too...
