The Real Price of Cheap Natural Gas for Europe

Everyone knows who is behind ISIS, AL Nusra Front and the other ‘rebels’ fighting against the regimes in Syria and Iraq. There are no secrets any more. Its Israel, Saudi Arabia and Arab nations on the Persian Gulf (i.e. Qatar, UAE etc. otherwise known as Gulf Arab States). There are now 4 million Syrian refugees, and virtually every state within a reasonable distance from Syria is being asked to take them.  It’s a humanitarian outrage.  How can we sit aside and not feel the pain as human beings?

Not surprisingly, we have Israel, Saudi Arabia and these Gulf Arab States are refusing to take any of them. They don’t care. They never cared.

They never cared when ISIS and other rebels were openly chopping off the heads of American, brits, or any foreign reporters or simply people caught up in the crossfires.

They never cared when people’s homes, schools, hospitals … whole cities where being devastated by ISIS and other rebels.

They never cared when ISIS and other rebels marched into Palmyra and destroyed ancient relics.

They simply never cared!

Why, it’s simple they financed and waged this proxy war against Syria and Iraq because they only care about one thing: Money. How dirty and viscous can it get?

Yes, Israel found massive oil and gas reserves off its coast, and we already know Saudi Arabia and these Gulf Arab states are sitting on massive piles of oil and gas. China is slowing down – so who do you sell it to?

Europe!

The Europeans are shutting down their nuclear reactors and will be shifting power production to natural gas over the next 15 years or so.  The yearly revenue from gas sales alone to Europe will rise to something like $400 Billions dollars a year. So we are talking about massive – Trillions of dollars in revenues. And yes, the Israelis and Arabs want it.  And the Europeans want to diversify their supply away from Russia. Why make Putin even richer than he is? Right?

Well, there is a catch. The Israelis and Arabs have to connect into Turkey’s Nabucco Pipeline to get their ‘product’ to Europe! To do that they need passage across from Iraq and Syria …

Syria with alliances with both Iran and Russia said no! Russia stands to lose its monopoly and Iran is competing for the same revenue! Why should Assad say yes?

And Iraq’s regime being supported by Iran…and with its own Oil and Gas to sell… said no too.

So what do Israelis and Arabs do? They start a civil war! They find the most heinous criminals and give them arms… in the form of ISIS, Al Nusra… They’ve torn apart Syria and Iraq for their backers, hoping to destabilize the regimes, partition the countries… but ultimately provide the land access to Turkey for these pipelines.

And now, we have millions of refugees. And none of these countries – Israel, Saudi Arabia or Gulf Arab States are willing to take any of these refugees in.

It’s a very dirty game. Viscous actually. Outrageous – in my eyes. Sick

The only thing one can hope for, is for these rebels to move onto Saudi Arabia and the Southern Persian Gulf and tear these regimes too for their lack of humanity. Let them give their backers a taste of their own medicine.

As an Iranian, you cannot be surprised, right? It was these same states that backed Saddam Hussein during the Iran-Iraq war, with over 1 million casualties, chemical weapons and all. They did not care then, they won’t now.

Shame on them. Shame on them. Shame on them. We cannot stay silent and say nothing, do nothing. It’s a total travesty. Absolute shame

Lets face it, this is the real reason why Israel and all these Arab states do not want the Iran-deal and sanctions lifted! Because it now frees Iran  up to sell oil and gas to Europe (and other countries) with sanctions lifted.

 

But now, we have millions of refugees. And none of these countries – Israel, Saudi Arabia or Gulf Arab States are willing to take any of these refugees in.

They did not care then, they won’t now. As for the Europeans or the U.S., well they are going to buy their gas at cheap prices from who ever supplies it and meanwhile sell arms to eveyone… (lets forget for a fast second that both the U.S., Turkey and Europe were also supplying arms to various rebels too)… so why should they care? In their minds they are all being nice by taking in refugees… their conscious is clear!

 

Shame on all of us. Shame. Shame. Me, you, we …none of us can stay silent and say nothing, do nothing. It’s a total travesty. Absolute shame.

  1. Definitely consider that which you stated. Your
    favourite reason seemed to be at the net the simplest thing to understand
    of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while other folks think about concerns that
    they plainly don’t recognise about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and
    outlined out the entire thing without having side effect , other people can take a signal.
    Will probably be again to get more. Thanks

  2. Today, I went to the beach with my children.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
    “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her
    ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
    and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is totally off topic but
    I had to tell someone!

  3. Hello there! I know this is somewhat off topic
    but I was wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form?

    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having
    problems finding one? Thanks a lot!

  4. Thank you a lot for sharing this with all of us you actually
    recognise what you are talking approximately! Bookmarked.
    Kindly also consult with my web site =). We may have
    a hyperlink alternate arrangement between us

  5. Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the internet the easiest
    thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people consider worries that they just don’t know
    about. You managed to hit the nail upon the
    top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect ,
    people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
    Thanks
