Oil scams are about keeping the oil in the ground.

If someone is getting ready to lease or pump oil fields (and bring lots of oil to market apart from the large European OIL GIANTS)... this is when the US Military gets called up to be a mercenary force owned and operated for European kings and their industry barons.

Remember, oil coming out of Iraq to this day is non-existant. They capped it by killing Sadaam. Now it stays in the ground for future exploitation.
