The REAL reason for War with Syria - Oil and Pipeline

"Syria intervention plan fueled by oil interests, not chemical weapon concern...." Guardian UK


"In 2009 - the same year former French foreign minister Dumas alleges the British began planning operations in Syria - Assad refused to sign a proposed agreement with Qatar that would run a pipeline from the latter's North field, contiguous with Iran's South Pars field, through Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria and on to Turkey, with a view to supply European markets - albeit crucially bypassing Russia. Assad's rationale was "to protect the interests of [his] Russian ally, which is Europe's top supplier of natural gas."

Instead, the following year, Assad pursued negotiations for an alternative $10 billion pipeline plan with Iran, across Iraq to Syria, that would also potentially allow Iran to supply gas to Europe from its South Pars field shared with Qatar. The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the project was signed in July 2012 - just as Syria's civil war was spreading to Damascus and Aleppo - and earlier this year Iraq signed a framework agreement for construction of the gas pipelines.

The Iran-Iraq-Syria pipeline plan was a "direct slap in the face" to Qatar's plans. No wonder Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan, in a failed attempt to bribe Russia to switch sides, told President Vladmir Putin that "whatever regime comes after" Assad, it will be "completely" in Saudi Arabia's hands and will "not sign any agreement allowing any Gulf country to transport its gas across Syria to Europe and compete with Russian gas exports", according to diplomatic sources. When Putin refused, the Prince vowed military action."

The real reason for the war in Syria

The truth is out.

"It’s not pessimistic, brother, because this is the blues. We are blues people. The blues aren’t pessimistic. We’re prisoners of hope but we tell the truth and the truth is dark. That’s different." ~CW

Great article Brian here's another

Everyday more and more TRUTH is leaking through. It cannot be ignored as so many American are relentlessly pounding the phones of their reps in DC. Here's a new article posted today that I just shared with my Senators and Rep.

Syria- In a war based on ignorance and duplicity, which people die for Lies?

This is about a crude, tyrannical move to install a Gas pipeline across Syria, by enforced and illegal Regime change, collapsing a Sovereign Nation State to facilitate Qatar’s Gas into the EU, therefore collapsing Russia’s major energy export market. It’s also about moves to economically cripple Russia as a Global power and Military contestant to America. It’s now Russia’s Cuba moment. JFK was clear, so is Putin. Expect no less. Russia WILL stand firm, now backed by China and Iran.

This is a despotic game play part funded by avaricious Arab despotic interests, part also by the derailing aspirations of the Tri Laterals New World Order theorists, and part the US Military Industrial Cabal who take anybody’s money for dirty deeds. It’s all just about money and power. Not justice or truth. A power play of conflicting interests underpinned by collective greed, in short, a Liars Charter.

Syria is also one of three nation states

believed to possess emerging nuclear capability along with North Korea and Iran.

Nuclear capability is a money pit. Uses resources, makes nothing

This should get much more coverage. Those who are against this war in congress should be able to speak direct to the reason for this war.

This has been getting lots of coverage but very little traction...



The Petrodollar is tanking in the oil glut.

The more control of production, distribution and refining are established to more the reality becomes apparent that supply far exceeds demand. Even if the military wastes 50% of annual use of the USA.

The cost of maintaining dictatorial control over production and distribution eliminates apparent profits.

Is War in Syria a distraction since the petrodollar is backed by a plentiful liquid earth?
