Is war with Syria really about chemical warfare? ("No Blood For Gas!")

Is it really about chemical warfare? Really?

Then why has the little nation of Qatar spent 3 billion dollars to support the rebels in Syria?

Michael Snyder at the Economic Collapse Blog reports:

“Could it be because Qatar is the largest exporter of liquid natural gas in the world and Assad won’t let them build a natural gas pipeline through Syria? Of course. Qatar wants to install a puppet regime in Syria that will allow them to build a pipeline which will enable them to sell lots and lots of natural gas to Europe.”

And why is Saudi Arabia spending gobs to help the rebels and why has Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan been “jetting from covert command centers near the Syrian front lines to the Élysée Palace in Paris and the Kremlin in Moscow, seeking to undermine the Assad regime”?

Well, it turns out that Saudi Arabia intends to install their own puppet government in Syria which will allow the Saudis to control the flow of energy through the region. On the other side, Russia very much prefers the Assad regime for a whole bunch of reasons. One of those reasons is that Assad is helping to block the flow of natural gas out of the Persian Gulf into Europe, thus ensuring higher profits for Gazprom.

Now the United States is getting directly involved in the conflict. If the U.S. is successful in getting rid of the Assad regime, it will be good for either the Saudis or Qatar (and possibly for both), and it will be really bad for Russia. This is a strategic geopolitical conflict about natural resources, religion and money, and it really has nothing to do with chemical weapons at all.

Nothing to do with chemical weapons. Ok, no prob. Anyone for a game of poker?

It's more about removing Assad as part of the process in establishing the NWO.

So why don't they build it across Saudi and Egypt? Shorter, anyway.

Or they could make peace with Israel, if money is the only issue, and use an Israeli port. (Just kidding.)

But seriously, folks, if money is the only thing these guys care about, their ongoing war with Israel is really, really stupid.

This has been on the table for at least one year. How much does Barry makes when he leaves office? Now we know why he was bowing.

It’s about helping the side that hates us the most. The bloodiest side. The jihadi side.

The ‘rebels’, who obama wants to much to help, massacred a Christian village, al Duvair, and killed men, women and children.

It’s really about establishing the jihadis strongly. 0 favored the islamists in Egypt.

0 hates Christians and loves jihadis. He is using the full strength of the USA to establish jihadis.

What happens after they are fully established and getting fat off our money and arms, I prefer to remain in blissfull ignorance about that.

“The Attacks of September 11th were an inside job to invade Afghanistan and Iraq to then establish a Central Bank in those countries.”

I doubt it. Democrats only start wars when there is no security or economic interest to the USA.

As for the Saudis and Gulf states, they are Sunnis. Assad is an Aliwaite, and he is supported by Shiite Iran, which is why they want him out and a Shiite government in charge. No, it’s not about chemical weapons, but it’s not about natural gas either. It’s older than both.

I meant to say the Saudis want a Sunni government in Syria, not Shiite.

Because that doesn't connect to the pipelines into Europe where the real money is paid for Natural Gas.

Its about enforcing a treaty. So what it has no enforcement mechanism and Syria never signed it! So what we’ll probably kill more people than those weapons did!

Shut up and let the 0ne do as he pleases!!

A few nukes explode in countries where the citizens are expendable. All the countries of the world call on the UN to stop the madness and one world government is established.
