Question: Why are we in Iraq, Afghanistan, and supporting Pakistan Military’s war?
TO CONTROL THE WORLD’S OIL SUPPLY
Many stories have been written about the Oil War, and I have been reading Pablo Escobar’s stories for some time. In March 2009, he published Liquid War for Tom Dispatch, a must read . A few paragraphs to wet your whistle:
Forget the mainstream media’s obsession with al-Qaeda, Osama “dead or alive” bin Laden, the Taliban — neo, light or classic — or that “war on terror,” whatever name it goes by. These are diversions compared to the high-stakes, hardcore geopolitical game that follows what flows along the pipelines of the planet….Energy expert Michael Klare has been instrumental in identifying the key vectors in the wild, ongoing global scramble for power over Pipelineistan. These range from the increasing scarcity (and difficulty of reaching) primary energy supplies to “the painfully slow development of energy alternatives.” Though you may not have noticed, the first skirmishes in Pipelineistan’s Liquid War are already on, and even in the worst of economic times, the risk mounts constantly, given the relentless competition between the West and Asia, be it in the Middle East, in the Caspian theater, or in African oil-rich states like Angola, Nigeria and Sudan.
