BRIC and the Middle East


Brazil, Russia, India and China are the emerging countries that will be the likely winners if the economy of the USA was to collapse. It is not just in relation to the economy that we find these countries being busy little bees, especially in regard to Middle East policy. I wonder how many noticed that this bloc was solidly against UN resolution 1973 in regard to Libya. I am speculating that this is something that slipped past a number of pundits, but it is something that needs to be explored for the simple reason that the emergence of BRIC as a bloc ties in with the activities of Iran since Østupid became POTUS.

Reza Khalili has an excellent article up at the American Thinker which explores the points that I want to make, especially with regard to the activities of Iran, as well as touching on a subject that I have already raised, that of encouraging the Middle East Armageddon in the hope of the return of the 12th imam. It is very important to understand what is happening in the Middle East in light of the perception that the USA has a weakling or quisling for a President (just like Jimmah Carter, only worse).

Russia and China have been actively assisting Iran to achieve the aim of having the capacity to manufacture nuclear bombs. The abysmal White House approach to attempting to stop this development in Iran has been nothing more than an attempt to appease the Mullahs – you might call it a bend over and sniff some odour effort. This form of appeasement – the extending of a hand – was never going to work with these mullahs, but it did invite further contempt for the USA. Iran has been laughing in the face of the efforts of the Østupid Administration to stop them building nuclear weapons. As a result of the odour sniffing weakness of the Østupid administration, countries such as Germany, India, China and Venezuela have been using back-door cooperation with the Iranian regime that has in effect helped to embolden Iran with its efforts to be a nuclear power.

As Reza says:

The Iranian leaders have detected total confusion, weakness, and incompetence from the White House and have picked up their activities. Iranian agents, who have long infiltrated the region, are helping to incite uprisings in Bahrain, Yemen, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Egypt, and other countries in the Middle East. As I revealed recently, there is a secret documentary, “The Coming is Upon Us,” which will be distributed shortly in the Middle East among the Muslim population, that is calling for the unification of Arabs, the overthrow of U.S.-backed governments, and promising the destruction of Israel and the demise of the U.S.

In the last couple of months there has been an increase in arms shipments that have been seized en route to the Hezbollah in Lebanon, Hamas in the Gaza strip as well as to Africa.  Several ships have contained nuclear material destined for Iran have also been seized. These containers were loaded in China and they were labelled as boiler parts.

It is not just Iran that is sensing the odour-sniffing weakness of the Østupid administration, because China has been sensing the same thing. China has been helping Iran with its nuclear program, just like China helped Pakistan to create and possess nuclear weapons. China is helping Pakistan to create more nuclear plants.

It seems that the world is underestimating China’s ambitions in the Middle East. The perceived weakness of the USA has given China the incentive to attempt once again to become a super-power. The attitude of the White House, if it remains the same over the next few years will ensure that China will realize its dreams of becoming that super-power.

China and Iran have a common goal – the destruction of the USA and the West. Iran has been working secretively on the overthrow of Middle East regimes that are friendly to the USA, especially in Syria, Bahrain, Yemen and Egypt.  It is highly likely that Iran is backing Daffy Duck against the UN and NATO (I would not be surprised to learn that Iran had been secretly sending weapons to Daffy Duck). Iran’s actual goal is to create chaos in order to bring on the imaginary 12th imam. China, on the other hand retains its long term goal of world domination.

This goal of China is also being achieved from an economic point of view, and again the Østupid Administration has not fully understood the economic dangers of allowing China to control the financial sector via its holding of U.S. currency.

The BRIC bloc is working in many ways to undermine the USA and the West. Brazil, is yet another country that is led by a Marxist. The way in which Østupid has behaved towards Brazil, in giving loans for oil drilling is absolutely appalling. Brazil has also been working to undermine the US in the Middle East. Yet, the Østupid administration has not been able to identify the dangers that are being presented.

OPEC – environmental left wackos – is there a connection?


The White House has recently announced an investigation as to why there has been a spike in the price of oil, and the price of gas at the pump. An economist from George Mason University thinks that this investigation is not necessary because the politicians are taking notice of the environmental wackos. I think the statement has merit.

Mr Williams made the following statement:

“And actually, you know – collusion, if you look for the source of collusion it’s in Washington, D.C.,” Williams said. “The federal government is in charge of colluding, you know setting prices and colluding on prices. But the problem with oil – I think it’s a supply problem. The United States, you know off the coast of the Atlantic Ocean, the Gulf and California and then huge oil finds in Colorado, Utah and Wyoming and North Dakota – we have more oil than Saudi Arabia has altogether. And so however, what’s the problem? The government listening to Congress listening to these environmental wackos – they’re stopping us from drilling and so the prices are going up.”Read more: http://dailycaller.com/2011/04/23/why-would-opec-give-money-to-the-american-environmental-left-walter-e-williams-explains/#ixzz1KPufujN6

 
The USA is a part of OPEC, the oil producing nations. What you need to understand that OPEC operates as an oligopoly which means that there is more than one player in the field (monopoly), but the field is being restricted and controlled. It means that if USA is restricting its drilling and supply of oil, then other OPEC nations are taking up the slack.  In other words, the best interests of countries such as Brazil, Saudi Arabia and UAE as well as other oil producing nations are best served when the environmental movement in the USA successfully restricts the oil production within the USA.
 
For your entertainment, and I might add, a very good summary as to why oil prices are going up, I recommend this piece from the American Thinker. It is the Holder tapes 🙂
