Read the book House of Bush, House of Saud
. Things will clear up for you a little bit then.
So lets see what countries in the Middle East, with alot of Oil Reserves, does the West Control: Saudi Arabia, Quatar, Kuwait,
United Arab Emirates - and the newly "conquered" Iraq and Afganistan and ofcourset the mighty fortress of Isreal.
Israel has NO oil. Gas in Israel is a killer in terms of its price.
You forgot quite a substantial one the mighty fortress and terrorist state of IRAN!
Ok, my mistake - I wanted to add Isreal for being an Important part of Middle East to the United States control and influence over this area.
The "terrorists" state of Iran is not under Western Control, as I said before.
The need for OIL is not about war but business. When it cost more to ship products it becomes less affordable. Its simple economics high oil prices
low stock prices, high inflation it is called stagflation. This causes economic problems, unemployement and therefore unrest. It destabilizes
democracies - That is why it is essential to make sure that OIL is available and supplied at reasonable prices at stable supply.
Yes the US is spoiled with its oil consumption but that is internal US problem whuch motivates the US to stabilize this natural resources. The OIL
used by the US 'war machine' is negligible.
War is Business. Oil is Business. When wars errupt Stock Markets get big deals - and if you are the corrent "investor" with the right
"information" about the market, you can get Alot of money out of Wars - not just Oil. The Oil - Weapon Corporations in the United States control the
goverment actions in order to create more profit for them - therefore creating more conflicts, assuring their resources, controlling the area with
that reasource. And the MAIN WORLD OIL RESOURCE is the Arab Oil Basin, where most of Middle Eastern countrires share this oil - and MOST of them under
direct control or under occupation of the United States. Damn right that is why it is essential to make sure that OIL is available and supplied at
reasonable prices at stable supply!
And it is also truth that United States NEED all this all, since their consuption outranks everybody else by
far! And please dont tell me that "negligible" part of this oil is used by the military, since the USA has far the biggest Army that this world has
