What a twisted development. Via Israel National News:
Iran is ready to rescue President Obama if he requests help, the semi-official Fars News Agency reported Tuesday. Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehman-Parast underlined Tehran's technical capability to help the United States control the oil spill and the resulting slick, which he said is a "humanitarian issue."

One day earlier, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, otherwise known as the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), offered to provide experts to help the Americans. "The experience of Iranians' presence in curbing oil spills in a number of neighboring states in the Persian Gulf, such as Kuwait, demonstrates Iranian capabilities and skills, and the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps is ready to help curb the oil spill,” Commander of the IRGC's Khatam ol-Anbia Headquarters General Rostam Qassemi stated.
