This has one aspect of the wars and destabilization programs that I have noticed for years and have frequently used in conversations.
There are other aspects of course, the drugs and arms trade, monetary control, etc. and not the least is that Israel is or wants to be a primary benefiter in these criminal endeavors, at our and many others expense through their 'influence.'
"The pattern displayed so far is too consistent to be the result of chance, or a blundering foreign policy....
All of the wars started within the greater war (which used to be called "war on terror") have blocked oil and gas which was about to be brought onto the market. There must be hard evidence floating around somewhere on the Internet which proveuses that the US, the Saudis and all Western governments have been following a foreign policy of exporting wars wherever they cannot control the harvesting of oil and gas.No one yet maybe but the time's coming.
Whether my opinion on this matter is right or wrong, it has become obvious that oil and gas prices would bottom-out if all of these untapped resources were allowed to be brought online now, through international cooperation. This renewed civil war in Libya provides us with a perfect demonstration of what we have been doing to Africa and to the sovereign nations of the Middle East. By destroying the govts. of Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, Libya, Syria and the rest, we have made it impossible to bring their oil and gas plans to fruition.
We are fighting in Syria to keep its gas "bonanza" under the ground. Until the Syrian landmass and outlet to the Mediterranean is secured by Imperial terrorist puppets, there will be no gas pipelines built through the Middle East, or through any Muslim country under our influence. The beneficiaries of this treacherous policy have been the Saudis, the United States and the Big Oil giants.
Afghanistan violence prevents the building of the TAPI pipeline from Turkmenistan to the Arabian Gulf.
The two major wars against Iraq, and the punitive sanctions in between them, have prevented the pumping and piping of Iraqi oil and gas (more oil than in Saudi, with gas reserves only estimated), helping to maintain inflated fuel prices since the first Gulf War. From 1988 on, there has been fighting in southern Iraq. The Iraq War was reportedly started by Halliburton's tapping of Iraqi oil from Kuwait, using "slant-drilling," allegedly using "unbalanced drills" (also known as "horizontal drilling" (used in "fracking")
The renewed Libyan civil war has taken the world's finest crude oil off the market, although the tap can be opened periodically, whenever oil stocks need a little nudge upwards. This latest ploy to take Libya's sweet oil off the market has been led by a man who has lived in Virginia for the past 20 years, General Khalifa Hifter.
The Pentagon plans to defend the resources of the world (as if they were all our own) by bottling those resources up, to be tapped in the future, whenever doing so would become profitable. No one has the power to challenge this Imperial arrangement."
I ran across this video that believers can take literally. For those who may not see it that way, it could an allegory that reflects the possibility that maybe ethical and moral lifestyles and actions, without the standard religious dogma, are still the best way. Our definitions of what that is varies but always there is common ground.
When addressing the issues, the predicaments, the uncertainty, the dilemmas of our lives, perhaps an option is to look within ourselves first for insight and answers.
