    Invasion of Iraq: Cheney's Oil Law For Iraq Is Neocolonial Theft
    Tuesday, October 09 @ 02:56:43 UTC
    Oilby Muriel Mirak-Weissbach, Global Research
    October 8, 2007


    Although a great deal more is at stake in the Iraq war than oil, there can be no doubt that the rich petroleum reserves of the country have stood high on the agenda of the war party since long before the 2003 invasion, and continue to be the focus of policy for the occupying powers. Alan Greenspan, of all people, recently let the cat out of the bag, when he reported in his autobiography, The Age of Turbulence, that the war was "largely about oil." Brenan Nelson, the Minister of Defense of Australia, one of the "coalition of the willing," also admitted this when he stated on July 5, that "resource security" was one of his country's priorities for defense and security, and that Iraq was part of that equation.

    Africa Focus: Global Eye: Ring Them Bells
    Sunday, May 08 @ 19:32:39 UTC
    OilBy Chris Floyd, themoscowtimes.com
    Published: May 6, 2005


    An occupational hazard of dissidence in the Age of Bush is the unavoidable necessity of belaboring the obvious. Again and again, you must ring the same bell; over and over, you must repeat the same blatant fact: that George W. Bush and his minions are lying hypocrites with blood on their hands.

    But what can you do? Each week -- each day -- brings fresh confirmation of this damning truth. And until the American people redeem their lost national honor by rising up in their millions -- taking to the streets with the patriotic cry, "These murderous jackals no longer represent us!" -- the Bush crimes will go on, and must be documented. So grab the bell-rope: Here we go again.

    World Focus: Caucasus key point for U.S.
    Thursday, December 11 @ 11:20:59 UTC
    Oilby Salman Daudov, Kavkaz-Center
    December 10, 2003


    Increased activities of the US politicians have been spotted by the end of the last week in the Caucasus. US Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld paid an official visit to Azerbaijan and Georgia. This visit was tied to the order from George W. Bush to start regrouping the US forces on a global scale. Relocating US troops from Europe to the Caucasus is now on the agenda. According to various reports, it could be 20 to 70 thousand servicemen. The main reason for relocating the troops is to provide security for energy supply in the region and guarding the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline. Besides, the reports point at the increase of opposing the new threats coming from the "rogue nations, global terrorism and weapons of mass destruction".

    World Focus: The Georgian Puppet Show

    Oil...What was expected to happen in Venezuela

    by Ayanna Ayanna's Roots

    The drama that looks like a heroic public outcry for justice, freedom, and the democratic way of life takes on a sinister aspect if one is clever enough to see the puppet strings. It gets downright macabre when we see just who is the master manipulator holding the strings. In the past 24 hours, the Georgian President Eduard Shevardnadze resigned from office in what the media is calling a Velvet Revolution. "Massive" demonstrations by 15,000 Georgian citizens (out of a population of 5 million) led by the opposition, stormed the palace demanding the resignation of the president, who was unable to deliver on key reform directives and quell nationwide corruption.

    War and Terror: Why Germans Oppose War in Iraq - French Fries
    Saturday, November 02 @ 11:08:05 UTC
    Oilby Thom Hartmann

    An hour ago, I was standing deep in a Franconian forest of central Germany, gazing in amazement at the time-hidden ruins of an ancient castle, Nordek, that was first built in A.D. 950 and finally abandoned about 500 years ago. The massive stone structure looms two hundred yards above the Steinach river, and was probably built by the local warlord to control the trade on the river. A sign on the castle identifies three medieval wars that were fought for control of it, and, no doubt, for control of the river's trade.

    As the dried and disintegrated blood on Nordek's mute stones tells us, it all comes back to money. And the real money these days is in oil, since there's only about a 30- to 50-year supply of it left on the planet, and thus it's starting to rapidly increase in value.

    War and Terror: Iraq: Is It About Oil?
    Tuesday, October 15 @ 12:29:10 UTC
    Oil by A.J Chien; Oct 13, 2002
    ZMag, Institute for Health and Social Justice

    Those who question the stated motives of the US administration for threatening war against Iraq - to strike at dictatorship, or to eradicate its alleged weapons of mass destruction - have good reason for skepticism. I assume that readers hardly need be reminded of the US’s past support for Hussein, including when he used poison gas against Iranians and Kurds, support that vanished exactly when he invaded an oil producing regime friendly to the US; its support for current dictatorships throughout the region; its sabotaging of the UN inspection program, by using it as a cover for spying and by a renewal of bombing that forced inspectors from the country, and current efforts to obstruct their return; or its disinterest in multilateral treaties for controlling the production and spread of chemical and biological weapons.

    War and Terror: What the White House really wants
    Friday, September 27 @ 18:21:33 UTC
    Oil
    Bush's War campaign is also to stifle debate on the sagging United States economy and other pertinent issues before the upcoming midterm elections. However, they will go after Iran and Saudi Arabia as soon as they have control of Iraq's Oil and reduce Iraq to another US colony. They are holding their tongues on Iran and Saudi Arabia for now, but it is clear they are following the old hunter's method of divide and slaughter.

    -- Ayinde

    The unifying element in an often-contradictory US foreign policy is the dream of toppling OPEC and controlling the world oil market. And Iraq is the key, writes Paul McGeough from Riyadh

    War and Terror: From the mouths of babes
    Thursday, September 26 @ 15:17:41 UTC
    OilBy John Chuckman, yellowtimes.org

    I've written before that much of American foreign policy is determined by domestic attitudes and politics, in a society driven by the fantasies of adults who never want to grow up, rather than by the complex realities of the world.

    How else do you explain the perverse and destructive nature of so many of America's intervention in the world after World War II? Like big, thoughtless kids kicking at colonies of birds' nests, destroying lives and community without noticing anything much more than the exhilarating time they've had doing it.
