Russian gas cartel talks in Tehran unnerve the West


www.neurope.eu

Officials from Russia’s gas monopoly Gazprom, the world’s largest gas producer, met counterparts from Iran and Qatar on October 21 to discuss setting up a natural gas cartel, similar to the oil-based Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC). The notion of a gas cartel was brought up in January 2007 by Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, but it is now gaining momentum and may require just a few more meetings before an accord is finalised. Iran, Russia and Qatar account for nearly a third of the world’s natural gas exporters.

this is good news for oil producing and natural gas producing nations, that gas cartel and yes, very bad news and a disaster for US empire and the hypocritical west, as its power and influence is waning , also the formation of this gas cartel will enable Russia to control energy supplies , which combined with its military capability will enable it to cripple the imperialist USA with energy manipulation and thus bring it on its knees

also , OPEC seems to be hinting that it wants Russia to join it ,even better news as this would be politically devastating for USA if Russia becomes member of OPEC .



MOSCOW: Russia, Iran and Qatar, the three nations accounting for over 60 percent of global natural gas reserves, have agreed to set up a gas cartel on the line of the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (Opec).

The three largest gas exporters want prices up, given their recent dramatic decline after the summer peak.




he new gas alliance established in Iran's capital Oct 21 is in fact a "big gas troika."

The Opec-style gas cartel will be finalized Nov 18 in Moscow with adoption of the group's charter, a document which has been in the works for two years ever since Iran initiated the idea. In fact, gas producing nations have had a discussion platform since 2001, the Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF) comprising 16 member states.

But it has no charter, its decisions are not binding on its members and it is no more than a talking club.
Adopting a single charter has been the long-standing stumbling block for a "gas Opec." Iran wants the gas cartel to be modelled after the original Opec, setting quotas for gas production thus pushing prices up while further damaging the US economy.

certainly sounds as if you are salivating over the possibility....

however it also sounds as if you want america's "dictatorial imperialists" crushed so that you can make way for a new dictatorship in its place. what is the difference who holds that kind of power when it is the ideals they put forth that you dislike? you certainly dont seem to have world peace or at least equality on your agenda, you just want to be on the side that is crushing, killing and manipulating the rest of the world... if you were american sounds like you would've voted Bush!

It may be bad news for our government but it may be the best possible news for our citizens. A great many Americans absolutely do not support the mono-party "government" that runs our country. This mono-party regime is responsible for the wholesale theft of assets of the third world, overthowing democratically elected governments, illegal wars, illegal occupations and now they have crashed the world economy.

Every event that weakens this ruling party will be an opportunity for our people to retake control of this country and re-institute our Constitutional Republic. I hope our people can rise to the occasion and remove this cancer from our land.

Do you have some problem with america? I don't know if you ever traveled alot but I went to Berlin in 1986 and 1993. It's very clear the eastern (commie) half was much worst off than the western (allied) side. How do you explain that?

A big part of this crisis i think was to get at russia, so i think this is something russia needs to do. Its better to have friends in the world, and they are stronger as a group. Just look at opec.

Everyone outside, america should be happy with this news.

It goes much deeper than that, and it isn't the "US".

Anybody who is well read understands that the CIA works for the Federal Reserve and the players, members and other individuals owning share in those banks are from around the world. The CIA, and other private contractors, control the information flow to the pentagon and the US military.

Bottom line, the United States is a corporation owned by numerous individuals from around the world. Probably some of them live in your country.

Do your research before you spout off about the military agendas of a country, or company rather.

The IMF and World Bank are used by western nations to extract wealth from the third world and maintain a first world lifestyle. I am amazed that those in power in Europe go along with this theft.

The CIA is traditionally involved in numerous operations worldwide to include wholesale coc aine and heroin smuggling, overthrowing governments and false-flag operations. As I type this, the CIA is involved in wholesale drug smuggling. The White House knows about these operations and indeed, Bush 43's State Department called off an FBI investigation when they stumbled into a CIA smuggling operation in 2001. A $20 dollar question is "Where is this money being funneled?"

The Neocon White House has seriously interfered with the normal functioning of the pentagon -- even to the point of setting up a disinformation office in the pentagon.

Long winded point being -- there are a lot of people directing this nation. The vast majority are domestic. And the vast majority of them have their own agenda. These agendas reflect a decidely ill-will toward this country.
