The objects are closer than they appear…
The imperial bombing campaign is set to begin, as Prime Minister David Cameron and US President Barack Obama have sealed the deal on an almost certain strike on Syria’s military stronghold.
This latest death march in the Middle East has carried out a near mirror image of the false WMD claims of former Prime Minister Tony Blair and former US President George W. Bush just before the 2003 invasion of Iraq. You know the story, CIA asset Saddam Hussein, was supposedly procuring “yellowcake” uranium from Niger, along with harboring chemical and biological agents.
This of course, turned out to be a lie, the special interests and oil companies needed to sell the public on a false premise, in order to gain precious access to oil and gas reserves. Oil giants like BP had been clamouring to take the market in Iraq, and a war was all they would need.
Then Trade Minister, Baroness Elizabeth Symons, lobbied heavily on BP’s behalf, giving credence to the supposed “oil conspiracies” swirling around the UK and US.
The Independent article titled “Secret Memos expose link between oil firms and invasion of Iraq“, we are reminded of the closed-door conversations that sought to acquire Iraqi oil prior to the invasion in 2003:
“The papers show that Lady Symons agreed to lobby the Bush administration on BP’s behalf because the oil giant feared it was being “locked out” of deals that Washington was quietly striking with US, French and Russian governments and their energy firms.”
The revelations continued:
“Minutes of a meeting with BP, Shell and BG (formerly British Gas) on 31 October 2002 read: “Baroness Symons agreed that it would be difficult to justify British companies losing out in Iraq in that way if the UK had itself been a conspicuous supporter of the US government throughout the crisis.”
Additionally, Royal Dutch Shell, along with Tony Blair, brokered a huge oil deal with Libya, prior to the NATO invasion on Colonel Gaddafi.
Aside from the shaky accusations of the Western produced chemical weapons narrative, we are reminded of the true motivations of high ranking officials in both the UK and US.
Let’s not forget how this war in Syria got started and who has been driving it ever since:
The lust for oil, is leading us towards WW3.
Syria 2013, is Iraq 2.o, will the public connect the dots before its to late?
“Navy ready to launch first strike on Syria”

Royal Navy vessels are being readied to take part in a possible series of cruise missile strikes, alongside the United States, as military commanders finalise a list of potential targets.
Government sources said talks between the Prime Minister and international leaders, including Barack Obama, would continue, but that any military action that was agreed could begin within the next week.
As the preparations gathered pace, William Hague, the Foreign Secretary, warned that the world could not stand by and allow the Assad regime to use chemical weapons against the Syrian people “with impunity”.
Britain, the US and their allies must show Mr Assad that to perpetrate such an atrocity “is to cross a line and that the world will respond when that line is crossed”, he said.
British forces now look likely to be drawn into an intervention in the Syrian crisis after months of deliberation and international disagreement over how to respond to the bloody two-year civil war.
The possibility of such intervention will provoke demands for Parliament to be recalled this week.
The escalation comes as a direct response to what the Government is convinced was a gas attack perpetrated by Syrian forces on a civilian district of Damascus last Wednesday.
The Assad regime has been under mounting pressure to allow United Nations inspectors on to the site to establish who was to blame for the atrocity. One international agency said it had counted at least 355 people dead and 3,600 injured following the attack, while reports suggested the true death toll could be as high as 1,300.
Syrian state media accused rebel forces of using chemical agents, saying some government soldiers had suffocated as a result during fighting.
After days of delay, the Syrian government finally offered yesterday to allow a team of UN inspectors access to the area. However, Mr Hague suggested that this offer of access four days after the attack had come too late.
“We cannot in the 21st century allow the idea that chemical weapons can be used with impunity, that people can be killed in this way and that there are no consequences for it,” he said.
