The United States of America represent 4% of the world’s population, yet use 25% of the world’s oil. The greed to gobble up the world’s remaining oil resources means they launch war’s, support tin pot dictators and corrupt royal families, suppress democracy and freedom of speech, all for the filthy lucre of the black gold they are addicted to.
As the US military warns that oil output may dip causing massive shortages by 2015, with shortfalls of 10m barrels a day and the cost of crude oil to top $100 a barrel.
The US military says its views cannot be taken as US government policy but admits they are meant to provide the Joint Forces with “an intellectual foundation upon which we will construct the concept to guide out future force developments.”
That statement should be read as, you have oil, we want it.
The moral midgetry shown by America when a disaster occurs on their shores (above video), rather than an American made disaster arriving on someone else’s, is predictable only for the belligerent arrogance and hypocrisy that is synonymous with America.
The bellicose rhetoric being shouted at British Petroleum rather then the American contractors who cack handedly drilled the well, and abused all known protocols in doing so, should be noted for America’s never ending hypocrisy at pointing fingers at others rather than realising the inept greed of their own corporations had a significant part to play in proceedings.
Take the case of a US seed manufacturer who supplied a banned genetically modified maize seed to farmers in Germany. The farmers face financial ruin as their crops have to be destroyed at a cost of millions of euros.
The US reaction?
“It’s a minute problem”
How different to the fuss Obama is making about the oil spill off America’s shore.
Like all US presidents, Barack Obama has the John Wayne persona, swaggering about “Kicking Ass” and there the world was thinking that this messiah was here to save us all, undoing the horrors that the administration of George Bush had inflicted on the world.
Just another servant of the dollar.
