Francois Hollande suggests sanctions on Russia should be lifted | Daily Mail Online: Germany is eager to stop the charade, too. The demonization of Putin and then replacing him with an oligarch who would dismember and sell off Russia, has failed miserably. Putin is now coping with a global sudden oil futures ‘glut’. That is, the futures bidders thought Russia would be knocked out of world markets last fall, bid up future prices which now are nosediving, driving many speculators into bankruptcy.
This happens ALL THE TIME with futures speculations. The oil industry is infamous for this. And a lot of the futures games are played via very nasty real warfare. In the last three decades, one Muslim oil export nation after another has been hammered this way, keeping Saudi oil prices high in general.
This is falling apart in odd ways. Saudi Arabia suicide bombing puts country on alert for jihadi attacks as ISIS now turns on its originator and is seeking to overthrow the fat, corrupt king and his kin. Gunmen Kill 3 Saudi Guards Along Border With Iraq as the Shi’ites are also increasingly in revolt, too.
Back in October, Iran Matches Saudi Oil Discounts in Bear Market for Crude. Russia, Iran Collaborating to Bypass Western Sanctions last fall and this worked, obviously, to the hysteria of the oil futures speculators who imagined super high oil prices.
Skull and Bones lunatic, Kerry Warns of High Cost of Low Oil Prices. He claims we will all roast to death once it is above 0ºF (wow, it is 17º here right now!) and we should be demanding high prices for energy or we will have storms, earthquakes, alien invasions and other terrors. The world will come to an end.
Normally, before all the weirding going on with the Bilderberg gang, we knew that low energy costs=happy times for anyone outside of Texas and Saudi Arabia. Plunging Oil Prices Test Texas’ Economic Boom – WSJ
Mr. Kelleher is among the Texans predicting this won’t be a replay of the 1980s oil bust and banking crisis, which drove the state unemployment rate to 9.3%. As evidence, he and others cite a more cautious banking sector, a tax and regulatory environment favorable to business, and a state economy less dependent on energy and other resources.
“Texas has become a well-rounded state,” Mr. Kelleher said. “People did remember not to overextend themselves.”
The key here is the news that Texas has all sorts of jobs…but the core basis of all this remains oil. All the neat new jobs like the huge hospital complexes, depend on oil profits to fund their activities. It isn’t ‘how big is the oil industry’ than ‘how much does profits from this bring in tax and spending revenues?’
And like with all the energy selling nations and states, it is a considerable profit generator when prices were artificially hiked upwards. How?
Via the US and Saudi Arabia selectively attacking various oil competitors and putting them all under sanctions and thus enforcing a quasi-monopoly on sales. Russia was recently put under this same regime only Putin signed a huge contract with China which totally circumvents this.
The average American is happy that heating homes this cold winter is going to be a lot cheaper. And driving around will be much, much cheaper. And then money can be spent on other things! Imagine that. But our leaders are morose and angry and scolding us for being naughty peasants because we will now heat our homes and drive all over like the rich do with impunity. Dirty peasants!
And our oil wars against Muslims is backfiring in other ways: Moment terrorists shot wounded French policeman dead in cold blood as he begged for his life. TWELVE DEAD in revenge attack on Paris satirical newspaper for publishing Mohammed cartoons which doesn’t surprise me, we are at war with all Muslims and they are at war with all of us.
Obama’s Lists A Dubious History of Targeted Killings in Afghanistan as the US used long distant guided assassin robots to terrorize Muslims. The End of Tolerance? Anti-Muslim Movement Rattles Germany as German citizens complain about the flood of foreigners. The EU has allowed this thinking that it is a great way to restart WWI, WWII and end it all with WWIII since this requires infuriating and militarily being aggressive with Russia.
Can’t have a world war without Russia! Even as Obama Envoy John Allen No ‘Short-Term Solutions’ for Stopping Islamic State the US continues this war against Muslims who have oil or who the Jews want eliminated. But US Air Force ‘doesn’t have enough pilots to man its drone fleet for raids on ISIS’ | Daily Mail Online
Memo from Air Force general says too few pilots can fly drone missions
USAF pilot school reportedly half full, current flight crews overstretched
General Herbert Carlisle told Pentagon it has crossed ‘red line’ staff levels
Air Force is supposed to have 10 pilots per four drones – is running on 8
Overall implies a shortfall of around 130 pilots across 65 missions per day
Experienced pilots said to be leaving because they are so overworked
The most cowardly form of warfare is no fun for the kids asked to kill. They thought this would be a video game fun time. Instead, the horror of being a mindless, brutal, evil assassin weighs heavily. The ugly murk one works in isn’t like the cartoon video game fun with obvious bad guys leering back.
They are murdering PEASANTS in Muslim countries, peasants with a bad temper and a burning desire for revenge which wins out over time. Historically, peasants are renown for their degree of stubbornness when provoked. When left alone, they revert back to hand to mouth living and don’t bother anyone.
But rouse them and they fight hard. Many an empire learned this the hard way.
