Hi-Pakistan, Without wishing to sound paranoid or obsessive about conspiracies galore, one cannot entirely rule out the nagging feeling that something foul is afoot, a diabolical plan unfolding which either gathered pace after September 11 or was triggered off by it. The objective of the plan is to protect American capitalism and, of course, make even more money in the process, through fresh orders to the arms industry to replenish used stocks (which the destroyed country would pay for, of course) and reconstruction after destruction. We've all heard of the guy who set up a bicycle repair shop. To keep his business going he would place nails, broken glass and other sharp objects on the road near his shop so that they would puncture the tyres of hapless cyclists who would perforce have to bring their custom to him.
This is not unlike the diabolical plan: destroy a country to place orders for more weaponry with your arms industry and get your infrastructure companies to rebuild it. Then destroy another country and then another and so forth. The more
bicycles you puncture the more money you make. Not unlike the alien race in the movie 'Independence Day' which would consume all the resources of one planet, then move on to another. It goes without saying that the Americans stopped them, led by their brave President of course, though this one wasn't a draft dodging dried-out drunk.
The diabolical plan's objective includes capturing that most vital of natural resources, oil, without which the wheels of capitalism would come to a grinding halt, to put it mildly. Actually the economic meltdown would be such that it would spread panic, mayhem and disaster and make the Great Depression pale into
insignificance. Thus, to keep the wheels of capitalism moving and to make more money, yesterday's friends become today's enemies and will perhaps be tomorrow's friends again, as witness the Americans releasing the former Taliban Foreign Minister and reportedly discussing the installation of a 'moderate' Taliban government with him! The adage is that when you can no longer make money by their friendship, eliminate them and steal their wealth. I referred to Michael Moore's new book, 'Dude, where's my country?' a couple of
articles ago. He theorises that either the Saudi government was responsible for the September 11 attacks or disgruntled Saudi princes were. I suggested that in that case it was no more outlandish to suggest that Israel did it. In the same book Moore tells us how closely linked famous American families were to the Bin Laden
family, amongst others. And in another book I also referred to, 'Sleeping with the Devil', author Robert Baer tells of the humungous amounts of money the Saudis paid out over the years to US establishment figures and the corporations they were or are associated with.
Baer disingenuously calls it 'protection money'. Protection is a racket and protection money is paid to Mafiosi. Who were the Mafiosi that the Saudis paid protection money to? None other than famous, powerful American establishment figures and their corporations. Most diabolically, the effort also is to subliminally convince us that it is the Saudis, not Israel, that has penetrated the American establishment and thereby influenced the US decision-making process.
Osama's brother Salem bin Laden, who died in a 1988 plane crash, started visiting Texas in 1973 and, says Moore, “later bought some land, built himself a house, and created Bin Laden Aviation at the San Antonio airfield.” They own part of Microsoft and Boeing and have donated 2 million dollars to Harvard. Bush Sr. became consultant to the Carlyle Group after leaving office, “one of the nation's largest defence contractors.” One of the investors in Carlyle (2 million dollars) was the Bin Laden family. Carlyle also owned CaterAir, which Bush Jr. headed till 1994. Moore wonders whether that is why 24 members of the Bin Laden family were secreted out of America after September 11, before any US officials could interrogate them.
Was it friendship or to keep their traps shut, or both, or what?
The BBC reported the Taliban visiting Texas to meet Unicol while Bush Jr. was governor to discuss the building of a gas pipeline from Turkmenistan through Afghanistan to Pakistan (and hopefully to gas-starved India).
As to other important US figures, Vice President Dick Cheney was CEO of Halliburton, the construction giant, which won a lot of Saudi contracts and Lawrence Eagleburger, Bush Sr.'s Secretary of State, was a Director. National
Security Adviser Condeleezza Rice was a board member of Chevron, which merged with Texaco in 2001. Chevron named an oil tanker after Rice. Chevron Texaco have done and are doing a lot of business with Saudi Arabia.
Saddam was their man too. Donald Rumsfeld visited him in Baghdad in the early Eighties to discuss the progress of the Iran-Iraq war. Saddam was presented the key to the city of Detroit. No one remembers that because the media have hidden it.
Yes, important establishment Americans and their corporations made the Arabs part with a lot of their money, particularly the Saudi government and private sector.
And their relationship with Saddam and the Taliban was pretty deep too at one time. Now a single hyperpower, the US feels that it cannot afford the risk of their economy being dependent on the whims of a potentate of a desert family to which the fates mistakenly gave so much oil. They have to do something about it to make
To decrease their dependence on Saudi surplus oil, they captured Iraq and its vast oilfields, but that was not enough. I showed last week how the Saudis came to America's rescue in every oil crisis, like the 1973 embargo, the Iran-Iraq war, the 1991 Gulf War and after September 11. Every time an extra five to nine million Saudi
barrels daily saved the day, so dependent are the Americans on them. Robert Baer talks about possible terrorist attacks to put enough Saudi oil out of action as to seriously undermine the US economy. With Iraq not coming under control, and unlikely to, the Saudi surplus remains as crucial as ever.
What if, wonders Baer, the Abqaiq extra light crude complex accounting for seven million barrels daily, was taken out of commission by a terrorist attack? The global economy would be finished. Michael Moore let's the cat of the diabolical plan out of the bag. “A major chunk of the American economy is built on Saudi money. They have a trillion dollars invested in our stock market and another trillion dollars in
our banks. If they chose suddenly to remove that money, our corporations and financial institutions would be sent into a tailspin, causing an economic crisis the likes of which has never been seen. Couple that with the fact that the 1.5m barrels of oil we need daily from the Saudis could also vanish on a mere royal whim, and we begin to see how not only you, but all of us, are dependent on the House of
Saud. George, is this good for our national security, our homeland security? Who is it good for? You? Pops?” Robert Baer makes possible internal unrest and instability in Saudi Arabia an excuse for illegally occupying the country and trampling on its sovereignty and independence. He draws a demonic picture of millions of Shi'as working in Aramco and the Saudi oilfields and terminals, Shi'as who could ignite the biggest fire except for the one in Hell. What if this instability were to spill over into the neighbouring oil sheikhdoms? Iraqi oil would be nowhere enough to fill the gap.
Baer cuts out the frills and comes to the point, the bald truth. “That's why we in the West – Washington D.C., in particular – have to face up to our part in cultivating the virus that has infected Saudi Arabia. And that is why we must consider putting to sleep the host, the House of Sa'ud, if it can't or won't cure itself. At the very least, we will have to consider seizing the oil fields.”
So there you have it. The truth is out: “…seizing the oil fields.” This is intellectual terrorism at its best. Just try it. Make my day. You will achieve what Muslims have
been unable to. You will unite them, to protect the Holy land.
