When I recently read that Saudi Arabia was backing a US strike on Syria two things popped into my head. The first was that Saudi Arabia has a war boner when it comes to Iran, and Syria is Irans bitch, so that would make sense. But there was something else that I couldn’t put my finger on until just the other day. that was that Saudi Arabia would benefit graitly from more instabillity and military action in the ME, because by default, even talking about this sort of military intervention would jack up oil prices.
And that’s a connection noby has made yet. Black Jesus promised us that he would kneecap brown energy, by driving up it’s cost and shutting down its use, and this move against Syria is sure to do a lot of that. Not to mention that the new found war boner by the left comes right at a time when crude prices were in decline. That is, until they started talking about the need to bomb Syria. There more I analyse this WH’s reason for wanting to expend oodles of cash lobbing expensive missiles at Syria, the more I come away thinking that Obama’s strategy isn’t random, but more of that “fundamental change” shit he promissed. Only now that we are seeing what that fundamental change entails, it is some butt ugly stuff.
There is something not right about this whole Syria thing, and the more I think of it, the more frightened I get.
