First I must comment upon the basis of the thread as I believe we all see this as a pivotal point in the end game so far as the Age of Oil is
Secondly a thank you is in order as I am humbled to have been invited into the company of some great thinkers here on ATS which I believe is the place
to be for the new emerging Alternative News Sites appearing as we watch the old paradigm main stream media continue its implosion.
I will try to add a perspective toward the landscape of the idea of this thread as well as some interesting details I gather as I speak to persons
involved in this theatre.
Having spoken to a returning Canadian oil worker from the Caspian area I was told that the Chinese are quitely dominating much of the landscape.
I have read that last week both the Chinese as well as the Russians are slowly and steady in release of US currency in favour of Euro's.
U.S. recovery gets setback as countries dump dollar reserves
Many Americans have been led to believe that the worst of the financial crisis is over, but last week the U.S. economy was dealt another heavy
blow that may signal further disaster is still to come. www.haaretz.com...
The Financial Post reported last Wednesday that "...the U.S. dollar slid against most major currencies... hitting a five-month low of US $1.3775
against the euro..." The day after, Florida's BankUnited FSB was seized by Federal regulators in the largest U.S. bank failure so far this year.
The sudden dollar decline and seizure of Bank United is a flashback to the U.S. economic turmoil of late 2008, and a brutal reality check for many who
thought the worst was over.
The US dollar may be the new front in the theatre.
Another danger lurks in the idea that the Petro Dollar may be on its last legs. That is the method in which Oil is tied to the US Dollar.
What does this have to do with the Caspian Basin?
US influence is perceived as being on the downturn with Chinese influence now being perceived as the future world superpower by many with the result
of new partnerships being formed without any US input.
I believe the Chinese are educating Pelosi as we speak, although she will soon forget the whole briefing, notes will be taken by her excellent staff
as they will be fully educated by the Chinese as well.
What we may see very shortly is the creeping realization that we may have been checkmated by the Chinese and Russians as another front is opened in
Korea as I mentioned a few days ago on an ATS thread.

I just heard this on the radio.
This is not very good news as things often happen like this before a engagement.
Remember the assination in Viet Nam that took JFK by surprise according to McNamara.
Reminds me of this. The Korean front if opened would drain the US of its resources and the draft would open.
Remember we are still at war with Korea...North
And today....we have a North Korea situation again.
If this front heats up as well as the Swat/Afghan Theatre certain powers will then scoop up the Caspian Basin Energy reserves and WW#$% is on like
This is just my opinion.
I will work on developing the Caspian/Chinese connection allowing the historical perspective to be viewed as it is very enlightening.
