My friend and colleague, Eric Dubin of The News Doctors, posted an article by William Engdahl which lays out a four-way conflict developing in Syria over the control of oil and oil transporatation assets. Certainly anyone with half a brain had to understand that United States’ interest in Syria had nothing to do with overthrowing Assad for the sake of democracy or with putting down ISIS.
We’re about to be plunged into a new oil war in the Middle East, this one with a possible nuclear dimension. Wars for control of oil have been instigated for more than a century since the dawn of the petroleum era around the time of the First World War. This war for control of oil, however, promises to be of a scale that will change world politics in a spectacular and highly destructive manner.
I’ve been reading Engdahl’s work since late 2001, which is when I was dragged into the “dark side” by a daytrading colleague. His analysis is a must-read because it sheds light on why the most powerful military countries in the world seem to be so interested in Syria.
