Those who Control Oil and Water will Control The World


www.guardian.co.uk

Whereas Western countries dominated the last round of the Great Game, this time they rely on increasingly self-assertive producer countries. Mr Putin's well-honed contempt for world opinion might grate on European ears, but Europe is heavily dependent on his energy. Hugo Chávez might be an object of hate for George W Bush, but Venezuela still supplies around 10 per cent of America's imported oil. President Ahmadinejad is seen by some as the devil incarnate, but with oil at more than a $100 a barrel, any Western attempt to topple him would be horrendously risky.

While Western power declines, the rising powers are at odds with each other. China and India are rivals for oil and natural gas in central Asia. Taiwan, Vietnam, Malaysia and Indonesia have clashed over underwater oil reserves in the South China Sea.

I feel this is a theme we are going to be seeing come to fruition in as little as a decade or so...While the oil wars and grabs are already well entrenched, the vast dry-ups of WATER reservoirs and masses may be the next target on the agenda of military maneuvering and invading. Food will be equated in this scenario as well IMO. It sounds like the stuff of pure conspiracy theory, but the signs have been becoming increasingly apparent in modern times...Now up-Oil Wars...Next up-WATER WARS.

While it's true that oil and clean water is increasing in demand, do not ignore base metals looming in the background as soon becoming over-valued commodities. Base metals one day could surpass petrolium in value.. imagine copper, zinc and silver beginning to close in on gold. It's quite far off, and seems unlikely with how stable the mining sector is today, but it's something to think about.
