The Kerry-Abdullah Secret Deal Oil-Gas Pipeline: War on Iran, Syria and Russia

The details are emerging of a new secret and quite stupid Saudi-US deal on Syria and the so-called IS. It involves oil and gas control of the entire region and the weakening of Russia and Iran by Saudi Arabian flooding the world market with cheap oil. Details were concluded in the September meeting by US Secretary of State John Kerry and the Saudi King.  The unintended consequence will be to push Russia even faster to turn east to China and Eurasia.

US - Saudi Arabia Oil Prices Collusion: Calculations and Errors

This is the time the markets should expect oil prices to go up but they go down. It proves that a tacit collusion is taking place between the leading oil exporters and the countries involved, for instance, the United States... The history of tacit agreement between the United States and Saudi Arabia allegedly goes back to the President Obama’s visit to Saudi Arabia in April 2014 when the US Middle East policy ended up in total failure and there was an urgent need for a way out. Some reporters hurried up to say that it was the most important foreign tour during the whole tenure of President Obama. The agenda included the US initiative to bring the oil prices down to “punish Iran and Russia»...

Political Manipulations with the Price of Oil

The drop in oil prices that began at the same time as Islamic State (IS) attacks in Iraq and Syria is impossible to explain with economic factors. The world has long been used to the fact that the market has reacted to every war in the Middle East, where 47 per cent of the world’s ‘black gold’ reserves are concentrated, with a sharp jump in oil prices. That is what happened during the two wars in the Persian Gulf, and that is also what happened when the Americans began their ‘mission to restore democracy’ in Afghanistan. And speculation about a possible military conflict between the US and Iran was accompanied by the expectation of a jump in oil prices of up to $200 a barrel and higher. At present, everything has turned upside down, but for how long?..

More Neocon Hypocrisy in the Mideast

America’s neocons are now advancing their “regime change” goals in the Mideast by tarring “enemies,” like Syria’s largely secular government, as “Islamist” while shielding “friends” like Saudi Arabia despite its intense religiosity, yet one more double standard, writes ex-CIA analyst Paul R. Pillar.

Getting It Right in Fighting ISIL

President Obama and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry attempted to craft a so-called «coalition of the willing» to help the United States fight the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) in both Iraq and Syria. Obama was only able to enlist the support of the fragile new Iraqi government, the battered Kurdistan Regional Government in northern Iraq, and Saudi Arabia. The latter «partner», Saudi Arabia, has been ISIL's main benefactor. Obama also foolishly said he wanted to arm the «Free Syrian Army», even though many of its original members joined ranks with ISIL and its ally, the Al Nusra Front after being trained and armed by CIA and U.S. military teams in Jordan and Turkey...

“Going After” the Islamic State. Guess Who is Behind the Caliphate Project?

The Islamic State (IS) is portrayed as an Enemy of America and the Western world.   With the support of America’s indefectible British ally, President Barack Obama has ordered a series of US bombing raids on Iraq allegedly with a view to defeating the rebel army of the Islamic State (IS).

Prince Bandar back in the Driver’s Seat in Riyadh

Prince Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdulazia bin Saud is the godfather behind the creation of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), now called the «Islamic State» or «Islamic Caliphate»... Bandar has returned to an influential position advising King Abdullah after being sacked as Saudi intelligence chief last April. Bandar's new title is «adviser to the King and his special envoy»... CIA director John O. Brennan, a Saudophile and former CIA station chief in Riyadh, reportedly played a hand in the restoration of Bandar to a key position in the Saudi government... Bandar's goal is to eliminate the current governments of Syria and Iraq, thus depriving Iran of its only two allies in the region...

Saudi Arabia: The US President’s Futile Trip

...The story of Riyadh’s nuclear cooperation with Islamabad, including the acquisition of missiles capable of delivering nuclear warheads over long ranges, goes back decades. This has been discussed by Gary Samore in particular, who until March 2013 was the White House Coordinator for Arms Control and Weapons of Mass Destruction. He wanted to understand (since it is still unclear) why the US is not objecting to Saudi Arabia’s nuclear plans, seeing as there is a risk of the rivalry between Iran and Saudi Arabia turning into a global conflict...

Obama Launches Reset of Saudi Ties

What emerges from Obama’s visit to Saudi Arabia is that Washington’s strongest relationship in the Arab world, which has been with Riyadh, is in historic shift. Arguably, the US’ path to energy independence dilutes the dense economic interdependence between the two partners but that is not the whole story and is probably not even the main story... The heart of the matter is that Saudi Arabia fears that Obama is pursuing a deal on Iran’s nuclear program, which may eventually end the US economic sanctions against Iran and, in turn, "empower" Tehran to play an optimal role in regional affairs...

Barack Obama and Saudi Arabia: Behind the Scenes of the Visit

...Official sources report that during the negotiations with King Abdullah, President Obama only rejected the idea of direct U.S. military strikes against Syria.  Obama considered everything else, including the delivery of MANPADs to the rebels, to be possible. White House representatives do not speak plainly about this; they begin to prevaricate, but the question can essentially be considered resolved. After the negotiations, it is clear that this summer Riyadh and Washington, in partnership with other «friends of Syria», will once again try to use weapons to «close the issue» of al-Asad and of the Syrian Arab Republic in its current form...

«Ukraine is Waiting for Solutions to Its Problems from Everyone but Itself»

At trilateral talks held in Brussels on 30 October, Russia, Ukraine and the European Commission reached an agreement on Russian gas supplies to Ukraine and gas transit to Europe. It is a temporary solution to the problem, since the agreement only covers the next five months – until the end of March 2015. Shortly before this, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso made it clear that emergency lending to Ukraine, including for the payment of its Russian gas debts, would not exceed €790 million (Ukraine is asking for €2 billion). Money for Ukraine can only be taken out of the pockets of European taxpayers. But European taxpayers are already disgruntled. «I get the feeling that Ukraine is waiting for solutions to its problems from everyone but itself», declared Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico during talks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel...
