Is this Syria thing about Obama’s promise to screw over brown energy?

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.

    We only get about 15% of our oil from the ME these days, and it continues to shrink. I doubt jacking up oil was Obama’s plan. If anything it would only bolster the need for fracking here in the states. Fact is he drew a line in the sand, didn’t plan for the fact that maybe no one here in the states wants any more lines drawn, that we’ve had enough of this crap, and he thought everyone would just fall in to place. I can’t blame him entirely for his inflated ego given it was pumped up with an excellent propaganda campaign and lots of Hollywood hot air, but it was miscalculation on his part, and now it’s about saving face. That’s all this is about.

    Amen to that, but the Europeans and the Asians get the bulk of their oil from there, and when they can’t get it from there, they compete with us for oil, which drives up the price. Now, these days, considering the US is heading towards becoming one of the biggest exporters, it might behoove us to have higher prices for oil as well, but in the end that hurts consumers.

    I doubt jacking up oil was Obama’s plan.

    Jacking up the price of oil so we use less gasoline or heating fuel, because we can’t afford it, sure seems like someone that promised to make coal so prohibitively expensive that it wouldn’t remain a viable energy source anymore could and would conceive off, though.

    If anything it would only bolster the need for fracking here in the states.

    Who knows, maybe he thinks higher prices means higher profits, and thus more revenue for a government that wants to treat oil like they did tobacco: make it a cash cow.

    Fact is he drew a line in the sand, didn’t plan for the fact that maybe no one here in the states wants any more lines drawn, that we’ve had enough of this crap, and he thought everyone would just fall in to place.

    Never said that he hadn’t done just that, but at this point why keep pushing.

    Not disputing this guy’s ego problem. If the story of Narcissus didn’t already exist we would have to make one up with Obama in that role. Sure it all could be ego, but the question begs to be asked: what about the people around him? Are they such sycophants that they don’t know when to tell the emperor he is wearing no clothes and that in this case he is better off backing off? No, there are ulterior motives at work here, probably a whole bunch of them, and that’s why they can’t back down. At this point he has already lost. He is damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t, but if he does attack, there are many more problems that will come from it than there will be if he chooses to back down. The guy is a lame duck. He can do very few things thing well, and the top of his list are campaign and propagandizing, and he sucks at leadership of any kind. The only people still trying to keep the illusion that Obama is a loser are the left’s handlers that can’t fathom the fact they fucked up by picking him.

    Today is the first time Her Fithiness has opened her maw about the Syrian chemical attack and it’s repercussions. Ans yes I’m sure her silence was a campaign move.

    Now she is giving Oblunder a back-door escape for all of his posturing. She thinks the Russia should take control of Assad’s chemical weapons.

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, a potential presidential candidate in 2016, waded into the debate, endorsing Obama’s drive for Congress to approve military action.

    She said the surrender of chemical weapons would be an “important step” but said such a proposal could only have come “in the context of a credible military threat by the United States.”

    This whole Kabuki theater just insults our intelligence a bit more every day.
