Since WWI, when oil replaced coal as the major form of energy for transport and military applications, the nation that dominates the world oil markets and supplies dominates the world.
With the advent of shale oil and the glut production by the US, making it now an net exporter of energy, it has set its military and proxies around the globe to destabilise those nations who, if stable, compete with US oil production corporations, like Exxon, BP etc.
This is the underlying reason Obama has set the Jihadists into Iraq once more and Syria. By keeping the Middle East destabilised he creates the gap in oil production to be filled by US oil corporations, thus bringing in much needed export dollars, thus retrieving some of America’s loose money, the petrodollar, which has been floating around the world causing the US currency to become increasingly worthless and the American public restive as they see their nation go down the gurgler.
The Chinese alone hold over $3 trillion US dollars in their cash reserves. This is why Obama has pivoted troops into the Asia-Pacific region, in an uncloaked aggression against China with intent to use such things as small islands in the South China Sea as a flashpoint for instability there, thus undermining China’s growing geopolitical dominance in the area and the world in general.
Africa is another case in point, thus Yemen is being used by AFRICOM to destabilise that resource-rich region and competitor of US economic hegemony.
The Russian giant Gazprom is also firmly in Obama’s sights as he creates havoc for Putin on his border with Ukraine. By trying to destabilise Russia and its borders, Obama is doing the work of big oil, who cannot compete with cheap, Russian oil and are quickly losing market share and control over world supply.
In Iraq the US has its Saudi friends calling for Jihad amongst a backward, religious pack of looneys willing to die for Allah, at least in their minds. The reality is they are dying for big oil. Similarly in Ukraine he is using historical distrust by Ukrainians of Russians to create chaos.
What is happening in Iraq and Ukraine is exactly what Obama and his oil masters want to happen. Yes, Obama truly is the Antichrist, in a long line of them emanating from the bowels of the earth on the back of a stream of filthy, putrid, earth-destroying oil.
