Syria isn’t about chemical weapons, it’s about competing natural gas pipelines

What you will NOT be told about Syria

Ever wonder WHY Russia is in bed with Syria and Obama is in bed with Saudi Arabia on the Syria question ?

Well, it’s the same as always, just FOLLOW THE MONEY – and it has little or NOTHING to do with chemical or biological warfare.

Qatar, who we don’t hear much about, is one of the root causees of the “conflict” in Syria – to wit;

Qatar is the world’s leading producer of liquidified natura gas (LNG) which comes from the imense gas fields that they share with Saudi Arabia.

 

Qatar wants to supply future energy needs of Europe via a direct pipeline up their coast, through Kuwait, Iraq and Syria and into Turkey which will be the entry point for all of Europe, INCLUDING Russia …

Meanwhile, the Saudis also have a plan to construct a direct pipeline to Europe, through Jordan and Syria and into Turkey, but EXCLUDING any branch to Russia …

HERE IS THE PROBLEM – Assad (Syria) welcomes the Qatar pipeline to go through Syria, but REFUSES to allow the Saudi pipeline (Obama and the Keystone Pipeline ?)

Therefore, if the Qatar-, Russia- and Iran-backed Assad regime prevail in the Syrian civil war, then Syria, Qatar, Iran and Russia WIN big time, both politically and financially

BUT -

If the Saudi and USA backed Al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood forces prevail in Syria, then the new Muslim Brotherhood regime will charge a hefty fee and allow the Saudi pipeline to furnish the future energy needs of Europe …

So, we have Qatar, Iran and Russia sending huge sums of treasury and war support to Syria in their bid to reap those future profits from all of Europe on one side, and Saudi Arabia with their puppet pimp, Obama, on the other side.

(We also see Obama trying desperately to “get even” with Putin for routinely putting him down as a non-threat and non-entity in the world stage of political savvy, but hey, that’s just our humble opinion.)

We bet you don’t hear anything about this real money decision making when Obama talks about those evil, nerve gas using, Syrians and their leader Assad, on TV tonight ???

I fear this political posturing and killing will be the news to distract ALL PEOPLE from the desperation that will ensue after the remnants of fossil fuels are completely exhausted. The stepping down process is void of any alternative energy sources to wit-If solar, nuclear, or switch grass was practical or could be made practical then the current drama and killings would not be happening. We could breed whales, farm them, and go back to whale oil but a century later we have a conscious? Our next century will not be dependent on LNG if we have one at all. Hint: nitric acid. Elevated thinkers may respond.

This is close, but not quite correct. LNG doesn't go through pipelines; but it's much cheaper to send gas via pipelines than by turning it into LNG and sending by ship. 

Russia dominates Europe's gas supply, and since European governments won't frack, and indigenous supply in Holland and Norway is peaking, and they need gas for power generation since they don't like coal or nuclear and renewables can't handle the load... Russia wins. They also tie their contractual gas prices to the price of crude rather than to the spot price for gas.

Some additional supplies will come to Europe from the Southern Corridor pipeline from Azerbaijan when it comes online in 2019. (If it comes online. It has to cross Georgia. You know who hates Georgia, right?) But not enough.

Saudis and Qataris want to build a pipeline to Europe that will challenge Russian supply/price dominance. That pipeline would go through Syria. Assad says no... because Russia says no.

This is not the whole tangled story about this war... but it's a big part of it.

@WaltHarperAt the risk of dignifying the rank elitism and preening narcissism on display in the sentence "Elevated thinkers may respond" by responding, please tell us what excites you about nitric acid.

As a pipeline engineer in the late 70's and early 80's, our company had natural gas that was liquefied then shipped by container ship to the port of entry, where it was carefully changed back to a gas and pumped thru a pipeline in our system.  So technically, LNG is hauled in bulk by ship, but can be transported by pipeline once re-gasified.

@MOHAREB MULLAH CRUSHER Obama doesn't care about the humans in Iran. If he did, he would have supported the revolution. And a few cruise missiles aren't going to bring down Assad or the Iranian regime, either. That would require a full-scale, long-term military commitment, and that's not going to happen right now.
