Oil Wars And US Imperialism

It is quite evident by now that the Iraq war was about oil.

In 1997 the US national security advisor Brzezinski wrote the book The Grand Chessboard. In it, Brzezinski claimed the US must take control of the world’s oil and gas reserves to gain total control over the world - or “full spectrum dominance” (yes, the very same “full spectrum dominance” Bush, Rumsfeld and Powell have referred to several times in the past 4 years.)

In 1999 the Pentagon declared readiness to wage an oil war.

Another part of the plan for global domination, a new American empire, is to stop any regional power, friend or foe, from becoming powerful enough to rival US hegemony. The book says the greatest threat to US hegemony would be a united Europe, or worse, a united Eurasia: Europe and Asia working together peacefully.

The Neocons, who have hijacked the White House, have made this idea of worldwide US hegemony, an American empire, their declared policy goal.

That explains why Rumsfeld tried to drive a wedge between European countries with his “old” Europe and “new” Europe comment.. It also explains the madness behind the US policy to pre-emtively shoot down European satellites, if or when they will threaten US space superiority.

Shortly before the Iraq war, Cheney and his close buddy Baker announced that the US was facing an unprecedented energy crisis and that the US had to gain access to Iraq’s oil, by military force if neccesary.

Notice, in that policy statement, there was nothing mentioned about Iraq posing a threat to the US with WMD. Instead, the policy paper states that Iraq is a threat to the US, because Iraq has a lot of oil, which the US may not be able to get under Saddam. And today we know that every word about the WMD was a lie. There were no WMD. Iraq was not a threat to the US. Those WMD claims were delusional.

Cheney held a secret energy meeting about Iraq’s oil fields. Then, during the war, the first objective was to secure the oil fields and the oil ministry. And while American tax payers have to pay billions for this war, that money goes straight into the pockets of Halliburton and other war profiteers.

At this point, anyone with at least half a brain can see that the Iraq invasion indeed was all about oil and profit.

So, what is the rest of the world doing about it? For one, even our oldest allies no longer trust us. US reputation is at an all time low.

And sooner or later, the rest of the world may very well unite against us, and use economic pressure, rather than military force, to end American imperialism.

Of the general subject
of the shenanigans of the
international banking cartel,
here is a summary of an online book
I recently ran into.
The link to the downloadable book is in this summary.
Banking Cartel is the Cause of Humanity's Woes
By Henry Makow Ph.D.
June 26, 2002
"The Secrets of the Federal Reserve" by Eustace Mullins
"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies." ---Thomas Jefferson
In November 1949, Eustace Mullins, 25, was a researcher in Washington DC when friends invited him to visit the famous American poet Ezra Pound, who was confined at St. Elizabeth's Mental Hospital and listed as a "political prisoner."
A leading figure in Modern English literature, Pound was the editor and critic who introduced the world to James Joyce, W.B. Yeats and T.S. Eliot. During the Second World War, he was charged with treason for broadcasts on Rome Radio that questioned the motives behind America's involvement.
Pound commissioned Mullins to examine the influence of the banking establishment on U.S. policy. Mullins spent every morning for two years in the Library of Congress and met with Pound every afternoon. The resulting manuscript, "The Secrets of the Federal Reserve" proved too hot for any American publisher to handle. Nineteen rejected it. One said, "you'll never get this published in New York." When it finally appeared in Germany in 1955, the U.S. Military Government confiscated all 10,000 copies and burned them.
Thanks to the American Patriot Friends Network, this book is freely available on line. (I recommend you save it on your desktop, as I did.) Why is it so (excuse the pun) inflammatory?
Essentially it paints a picture of the world, and the role of the United States, which is radically different from the one we are given in school or in the media.


29 Oct 2004 @ 04:12 by ov : US Imperialism
Thanks John. Yup, the Federal Reserve is part of the core, the crux, the unraveling point for this entire mess that we are in. Somewhere recently I run across a quote that said if you want to know who or what runs a country listen for that which is spoke only in whispers, if at all. Our dependency on a phony money system is the elephant in the living room.

A really good site for this can be found in this article by Seek2Know.  

29 Oct 2004 @ 05:04 by vaxen : Glad to see...
that you guys are reiderating what I've posted here at NCN time and time again. Plant a seed...water it...voila!

I have no faith, whatsoever, that this knowledge will, in my lifetime, one iota influence the masses. The 'control' factors are too ingrained from birth unto death. Especially here in Amerika but also in the greater world at large where the 'CORE' of world operator/controllers works. Age old 'game.'

The bizzaro 'Elections' here and the general populace with their enslavement to 'conumerism' and its' many seductions and guiles have been prepared, long ago, via lies deception and 'education' not to think. Once in awhile a rare bird flies the coup, the cave, and sees into the reality of what is going on. Comes back to the cave and tells the blind therein about what he has seen...they, of course, immediately kill him.

Word to the wise. The best we can hope for is to unsaddle ourselves and hopefully one or two others who in turn will do the same and maybe...just maybe...somewhere down the timetracks infinite 'line' there will come 'an awakening.'

Kerry and bush are on the same side. They are 'controlled' by the 'hegemony.' It would be nice if we could secede from this monster and take those who see through the sham and do'nt vote, reorganize, and stand up in would be nice? Revolt!  

30 Oct 2004 @ 22:19 by ov : Petro dollars
This article doesn't mention the petrodollars issue. A few months before the 911 incident Iraq switched their oil for food program from purchasing with american dollars to purchasing with eruodollars. This was the crisis that required military intervention rather than simply containment. This doesn't get very much coverage at all, even in the lefty news sites, and I find that surprising since it is the crux of the issue. Both the right and the left silently cooperate to defend the dollar, god almighty or otherwise. Money is the blind spot.

Goggle on 'petrodollars' listed about 22,000 entries so it's not like it is unknown. Here is a rather complete article at the top of the list for Iraq and Petrodollars.  

31 Oct 2004 @ 03:28 by ov : More Petro Dollars
I was just over reading the SmirkingChimp and noticed that the Petro Dollars is getting more coverage over there. I'm surprised that it has taken this long. I first heard this angle presented over at RatHouse which is an article by William Clarke and this was a year and a half ago. Then I noticed that the SmirkingChimp reference is for and same William Clarke, who is publishing a book soon. Nice to see the Canadian URLs are pumping out the root causes information.

For the fire
to keep the general state of awareness In the Light.
Selected articles with selected citations for reference.
“There is a consensus among U.S. Congressional Investigators, former bankers and international banking experts that U.S. and European banks launder between $500 billion and $1 trillion of dirty money annually, half of which is laundered by U.S. banks alone…… The increasing polarization of the world is embedded in this organized system of criminal and corrupt financial transactions. While speculation and foreign debt payments play a role in undermining living standards in the crises regions, the multi-trillion dollar money laundering and bank servicing of corrupt officials is a much more significant factor, sustaining Western prosperity, U.S. empire building and financial stability. The scale, scope and time frame of transfers and money laundering, the centrality of the biggest banking enterprises and the complicity of the governments, strongly suggests that the dynamics of growth and stagnation, empire and re-colonization are intimately related to a new form of capitalism built around pillage, criminality, corruption and complicity.” NarcoNews
Rosa Luxemburg, as unfortunately happens all too often with notable women in history, has been badly overlooked. She is remembered mostly as a leftist leader in Poland and Germany who was the victim of political assassination, and for her sharp debates with Lenin. But in her 470 page opus, The Accumulation of Capital, she made a significant contribution to the theoretical understanding of imperialism, one that has been incorporated into world system theory and into feminist critiques of political economy.
Luxemburg said that "capitalism," an economic system based on the self-expansion of monetary value for a propertied class, has never functioned nor can it ever function without external, non-capitalist inputs. The expansion of British capitalism, for example, could not have happened without colonization and exploitation of more "primitive" economies, or without direct military plunder of colonized people and resources. The same applies to American capitalism that was built up first using non-waged (slave) labor, and military expansion into indigenous lands…….
……Meanwhile, people still have to have dollars to pay their international debts. Where do you get dollars? From the United States, of course. So the treasury note system has other countries locked in at the central banks, and the need to pay off bigger and bigger external debts - in dollars - forces the majority to convert their entire economies away from local development - like the old import substitution industrialization (ISI) strategy - into export commodity platforms oriented to the US. "The US makes dollars; everyone else makes things to get dollars."
The two pillars of the US imperial edifice are monetary and military. And the development of this unique ability was closely related to the unique geographical position of the United States, outside the lethal circumference of European wars.
Persian Peril
50 Years of Drug Dealing by the CIA
….Our beloved agency busily flew heroin around Asia on the CIA proprietary airline AIR AMERICA during Viet Nam, and refined Hmong and Burmese poppy in Asian soft drink bottling factories, used the U.S. Mafioso MOB to distribute the drugs and banked millions in their own Bank which they later collapsed, stealing the receipts.
Just revealed: the sixties weren't the start of the CIA dealing poppy to ghettos. Colonel Paul Hellwell of the OSS brought heroin from Burma and sold it in U.S. ghettos as far back as the 40's,….
It is only our ignorance which keeps the CIA snake crawling through the banana republics causing poverty, urban unrest, famine, civil wars and babies dying and through the ghettos and cities of America, causing the same. Now, we are no longer ignorant! So by reading this, you just saved a baby!
It is important for the reader to begin to think about what the world will be like if the One-Worlders succeed. Because this is a short article, all the possible ramifications and changes to your lifestyle cannot be covered. But one possible negative outcome could be a return to a feudal system with 98% of the people shackled to some major corporation in the same way that serfs lived by the whim of their overlord. This is just one of many possible scenarios, all equally black.

That being said, the ball is squarely in your court. You are part of a select few who have the education, intelligence and desire to even care about such things. In other words, it is up to you. You are part of the last classically educated free-thinking generation in this nation. If you wish to preserve your country for your grandchildren, then get busy. Write letters, form groups which will inform your family and friends. Buy shortwave radios, and create radio networks which will get together and decide how to create an informed voting block that will take back your country.
Edit note: Nov 1st, 17:07 -- thanks for the links John, I made them live but didn't change anything else, I'll comment in a post below because based on the excerpts it looks like there is lots to comment on here. ov  

1 Nov 2004 @ 23:17 by ov : Money is the crux
no doubt in my mind that our dependency upon money, our worship of Mammon, is the root cause layer which we need to deal with if we are to get through the upcoming transition. The more that can be done to switch our dependence from economic society to civil society the more secure our future will be. I think it will be the third world that knows the most about this, and although they don't have any more reason than the rest of us to move towards a sustainable society, they don't have the same vested interested in maintaining the dysfunctional state in which we currently reside, and this fact will probably sustain them enough to see a way through this debilitating addiction.

I agree with that last quote in your post John, about how the ball is in our court seeing as how we have the intelligence, education and caring, plus I would add the communication infrastructure to engage in dispersed emergent analysis and action.

The following excerpt is from which was an offshoot from the WorldNewsStand.

"The systematic destruction of the industry and economy of the United States of America is currently a high priority for the "elite". Thanks to the greed, apathy, and stupidity of American citizens, the deed is nearly done."

It looks to me like this might very well be the case, and although I don't have a high opinion of the elites, I'm not really against this objective either. It would be a lot easier to reduce the USA to third world status, then it would be to raise the rest of the planet up to the wasteful indulgence of the USA, and if the whole planet consumed like the US our world system would be even less sustainable than it is now. I think that crashing the American hegemony will also bring down all the puppet thugs in the rest of the world, so it's not so much that I'm against America, it's just that I'm in a class warfare against the money elites and the USA is the cornerstone that will bring them all down.

It's the dependence on oil, a real, physical, material substance that gives this whole thing reality. Even if the world had stayed on the gold standard and kept the runaway virtual inflation of currency in check, even gold isn't real in the sense that it is essential, it is only real in the sense that it can't be created out of thin air. Oil on the other hand is a need which has a life of its own independent of our mass delusions. We can have a global society without oil, but it will be vastly different that the society we currently have.

Google on petroeuro and today you will see a little over 500 hits, but it won't take too many more weeks until this reaches into the hundreds of thousands, because when it comes to Oil and Imperialism this is the achilles heel.

"Are you so sure? Maybe there consequently not it?"

"? No, you do not see this pattern," he pointed to the strange fox goes face: "This is the first human sacrifices when Lu ritual mask tape, which must be buried in the tomb of a very special person in what capacity, It may be even more honorable than the emperor at the time. "

I blurted out: "The Emperor his father."

Third Uncle stared at me, they wanted to close up the paper goes on, I'm a hold toward him smile: "Uncle, you do not rush it up, how do I say this thing is coming, this time how about you have to take me to see this. "

He shouted: "No, this scouring the sand is not so simple, and that place can not air conditioning, but also numerous organs, and subject to Xiecai you are your father's only child, if you have happened, I'm not let you. father chops skin can not. "

I also shouted: "That's never been on when I leave!!" Then put the sheet of paper from his hand suddenly taken out, turned around and left. I know this man tri event of their favorite things, that principle does not see this antique, likewise see a woman, I allowed him to eat it, it really only a few steps, he surrendered , and to catch up, pulled my hand the paper: "Ok, you are powerful, but we can say well, when we under Dao Dong, so you may have to stay on top of the head office, right?"

I suddenly elated heart: when I'm going down to can you blocked lives me? Busy nodded: "!! Word go, we all listen to you, you make me why I'm doing."

Tri helpless sigh of mouth, said:. "The two of us do not succeed, then transferred tomorrow I experienced a few folks over the past few days I have this solution paintings, you have to help me to repairing something." then he quickly wrote a note to me and said, "do not buy a fake, as well, ready to set out the first line of travel, or not to the place where we first detained." I nodded , on each separately to get busy.

Tri wanted things are more tricky, I think probably what I deliberately make things difficult, because this single house really do not store things in general, such as what split waterproof miner, steel pipe, shovel soil test head, multi-purpose knife, folding shovel, short handle hammer, bandages, nylon rope, and so, I just bought a half spent nearly a thousand dollars, and my heart is called the distressed ah, Zhi Ma old fox, so rich yet so damn mean.

Three days later, I still have two old guys Panning My Uncle, uncle also the day I bought that stuff back hand dragon boy, five to Shandong seeds temple and then west over 100 km of the place.
