USA hyping up Ebola to get West African Oil?

The United States is using the Ebola outbreak as a smokescreen to go on with its plans for extracting natural gas and oil from West Africa, an investigative journalist says.



The Ebola “hype is to distract everyone from what is actually happening” in West Africa, Susanne Posel, chief editor of Occupy Corporatism, told Press TV on Thursday. “What is actually happening in Liberia is they [the US] found out they have natural gas and petrol a hundred years worth or more. They want to extract it and they don’t want anyone to give them any problems,” she noted. She made the remarks as the Obama administration is deploying thousands of troops to West Africa to help the countries hit by the deadly epidemic control the viral disease. Posel said that the US mainstream media are hyping up the Ebola epidemic because, “It makes a hell of a lot of sense to completely confuse people while you are sending troops in to secure an area that a petrol company [ExxonMobil] is going to extract natural gas and [oil].” The 4000-strong US force deploying to Liberia--one of the three epicenters of the Ebola outbreak-- will be joined by hundreds of British troops in a mission that Washington says is aimed at building medical centers and training healthcare workers. “I’m really concerned about the Liberians because I think this is not exactly what is happening to them,” Posel said. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank (WB) have proposed plans to secure the extraction of natural gas and oil in the Ebola-hit regions. "There is a country that has natural resources that the IMF, World Bank, the United States and the UK want control over," Posel said, referring to Liberia. The recent Ebola outbreak started in late 2013 in Guinea and rapidly spread to two more West African countries, Sierra Leon and Liberia. With no proven treatment and no vaccine, the Ebola epidemic could affect 5,000 to 10,000 new people per week, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).


Honestly, if true, I don't think any of this would come as a shock to anyone around here. This wont be the first or the last time that America has used a smokescreen for an agenda such as this.

Oil futures are in the tank (pardon the pun), domestic supply is high, as well as foreign...demand is low so why would this be true? Honest question

Heh, Posel thinks contrails are "chemtrails."

Who in the US is using hyperbole about the ebola epidemic?
The government? No. The mainstream media? No. Not unless you consider conservative talk shows to be mainstream media.

On the contrary, the government as well as the "real" mainstream media have been downplaying the threat of ebola contrary to the hysterical hype from the conservative side who is using it as a hammer to bash the administration.

You know pressTV is not a reliable source, right? Here is an article that Posel wrote today. Any hint of what that pressTV article claims?

The US has been drilling in west africa for a long time.
I've worked with a lot of guy's who have drilled in Nigeria.
Not sure what's going on in other countries over there.
It's a good money maker for the countries over there that don't have much commerce or income.
The US doesn't need to have troops or a smokescreen to drill over there.

I've been saying this from the very beginning. Glad there is more proof adding up.

Ebola kills multiple birds with one stone.

They are battling China who has been there for a really long time too.

It is cheaper over there. All they have to do is pay the lifting cost which is $12.73 for on-shore drilling in the U.S and $10.31 for the same drilling in Africa.

How much does it cost to produce crude oil and natural gas

That's up to you. I'll go with the one that is more rational.
But that's not the point. The claim was that ebola is being hyped in the US. It isn't, except by the right fringe. Is it the right fringe which is going to steal Liberia's oil and gas?

They taught China how to do it.
They paved the way for China in Iraq as well.
Drilling steel comes from China and is mated with technology from the US.
China and US are partners in the oil business even if it's not apparent.

And how much to get it back to a refinery in the states?

I love how you automatically dismiss this story because:

A) You disagree with the chemtrail stuff ((Which I'm not saying chemtrails do exist)) so everything else this guy says must be false.

B) The website that it comes from isn't reliable.

Did you even for a second stop to think that this story might be true?

Do you have any good reason why this would be false other than the reasons I stated above?

It's a woman. And I pointed out that a very recent article she wrote has a completely different tone.


B) The website that it comes from isn't reliable.
Yes.


Did you even for a second stop to think that this story might be true?
Yes. For a second.



Do you have any good reason why this would be false other than the reasons I stated above?
Because the premise is false, ebola is not being hyped. Because there is no reason to believe Posel even if she said what she is claimed to have said. Because the site is unreliable. Because it doesn't make any sense. Remember how the invasion of Iraq was all about oil? How did that work out?

US oil and gas production is at the highest it has ever been. So much so that we are looking for more buyers. The story makes no sense.

Do you have any reason to believe it, other than it was on the innernet?

i do not really know enough about America's left and right politics to be able to discern a decision .....i know it is off topic but could you tell me is the left always more rational ? is the right always the fringe ?

Depends,
It swaps depending on if it's a lefty or righty making the claim.

(To be honest, most right wingers know they are on the right. The left wingers seem to think they are in the center.)

Freight cost p/barrel: $2.27 Cargo Size,Thousand Barrels: 910 ((this is just for crude oil))

Shipping Costs

I'm not talking about politics. I talking about rationality. The two don't have much to do with each other.

No. There is a left fringe and a right fringe. Generally neither is rational. Currently the right fringe is using the ebola epidemic in west Africa as a hammer to pound on the administration.

So the difference is 15 cents.
Not much of a bargain if you have to pay for troops to secure it when you can get it at home and oil is in a slump.

I'm not trying to give you a hard time on this. I don't trust our dear leaders either.
They are crooked as a dogs hind leg.
I just don't see it as being necessary.
They are already pulling oil out of west africa and those countries are making money off of it.

Yes. In addition to the right fringe I'd like to add:
The left fringe
The left
The right
The quick left and then a right
The repubs
The libs
The moderates/progressives
The moderates
The progressives
The ultra socialists
The neo-cons
The lolly pop guild
And hitler

Pretty much anyone that likes money.
