14 May 2015. The Saudis Want to Lynch Nimr Baqr al-Nimr… Where is America’s Self-Righteous Indignation?

00 ayatollah Nimr al-Nimr. 14.05.15

____________________________________

Ayatollah Nimr Baqr al-Nimr is a Shia cleric in the KSA. Ayatollah al-Nimr called for protestors to resist police bullets using “the roar of the word” and not violence… he scares the bejesus out of the American client junta in Riyadh. He said, “If we can’t have our honour and dignity back, I call for Saudi Shiites to secede. Our dignity is more important than the country’s integrity is”. He told the Saudi régime, “If a foreign country is responsible for the Shiite protests, why not attack it? Why are you attacking us miserable peons? Well, if you mean Iran, then, attack Iran.. then, we’d all see how much power you have”. Another time, he said, “The [Saudi] authorities depend on bullets… on killing and imprisonment. We must depend on the roar of the word, on the words of justice. We don’t accept [using guns]. This isn’t our way. We’d lose; it isn’t in our favour. Our approach is to [use words]. We welcome those who follow such an attitude. Nonetheless, we can’t enforce our ideology on those who want to pursue different approaches, who don’t subscribe to ours. The weapon of the word is stronger than the power of lead”. The House of Saud American collaborator pigs want to hang him… most countries have formally protested this… but NOT the USA and UK… fancy that.

One last thing… the Shiite population of the KSA is mainly in oil-producing regions… I thought that you’d like to know that. Look at how the human rights-loving Anglo Americans coddle their Saudi, Kosovar, and “Ukrainian” puppet juntas. I call such people liars… I’m not alone in that, y’ know…

Lavrov Sez USA Uses Hypocritical Double Standard in Yemen and the Ukraine

00 Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and his Iranian counterpart Ali Akbar Salehi. 06.12

______________________________

On Thursday, Minister of Foreign Affairs S V Lavrov said at a press conference that American approaches towards ousted Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi and former Ukrainian President V F Yanukovich represent double standards, saying, “I have to use a much-employed cliché… its obvious double standards, but we clearly didn’t want either what’s happening in the Ukraine, nor what’s happening in Yemen”.

On Wednesday, a Saudi Arabian-led coalition, which includes Bahrain, Qatar, and Egypt, launched airstrikes against Houthi rebel positions in Yemen following a request by Hadi. The USA isn’t participating in the military operation, but agreed to provide logistical and intelligence support. Yemen has been in political turmoil since Houthi rebels took control of Sanaa, the capital, and ousted President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi in late January. Currently, Houthi fighters are battling government troops in the central part of the country, whilst al-Qaeda militants make advances in the south. On 12 February, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said that Yemen was sitting on the brink of collapse amidst continuing violence in the country.

Lavrov said, “These games played out in confrontations between Sunnis and Shiites are very dangerous. There’s no other solution for Yemen apart from renewing negotiations, which were in process, mediated by the Special Representative of the UN General Secretariat. We insist on this, we hope that other countries involved in the Yemen situation in one way or another will act accordingly”.

Saudi Arabia Collapses Texas Oil to a Critical Level

00 Vitaly Podvitsky. That's Not Real Money! 2014

______________________________

Analysts said that reduced prices by Saudi Arabian Oil of WTI light oil exported to the USA and Asia lowered the cost of deliveries WTI in Monday trading on the New York Stock Exchange to 78.78 USD (3,026 Roubles. 481.50 Renminbi. 4,835 INR. 90.08 CAD. 90.58 AUD. 62.94 Euros. 49.24 UK Pounds) a barrel, down 2.2 percent over the price at the previous auction. John Kildaf, an employee of hedge fund Again Capital LLC, said, “This move by Saudi Arabia indicates that it’s trying to keep its market share in the USA, which recently declined slightly. Apparently, the Saudis feel comfortable at this price and this level of demand. It seems that Saudi Arabia expects that growth in demand for oil in the winter will allow them to strengthen their position”. On 31 October, WTI on the New York Mercantile Exchange fell by 0.7 percent to 80.54 USD (3,576 Roubles. 492 Renminbi. 4,944 INR. 91.95 CAD. 92.41 AUD. 64.23 Euros. 50.36 UK Pounds) per barrel. Then, analysts noted that some members of OPEC, particularly Saudi Arabia, are ready to keep prices low to preserve their market share.

Crude is now BELOW the breakeven point for shale oil and deep-drilled crude. This means that the oil wells in North Dakota are now unprofitable. Big Oil is in a quandary… it can keep the facilities open, and sell at a loss, hoping that the price will rebound… or, it can shut down the facilities until the price recovers, smashing the local economy. You see, the GOP is in the shitter. Their sugar daddies in Big Oil are going to take big hits, which means that they’ll have less available for greedy corrupt pols such as Rick Perry, Ted Cruz, Mitch McConnell, Marco Rubio, and Rick Santorum. It’ll make them MORE dependent on Big Pharma than they are… which’ll lead to desperate attempts to repeal the ACA, which President Obama will veto, and they won’t have the votes to override. In short, the situation will play right into BHO’s hands. Played correctly and soberly, it’ll snooker all GOP chances for 2016.

Ironic, ain’t it… the GOP “wins big”, only to find out their paymasters are getting the short end. To put it plainly, the GOP’s sponsors no longer have the cash to subsidise the beginning of the 2016 campaign (which it needs IMMEDIATELY). It also means that the USA no longer has any energy alternative to offer the EU. Saudi and Russian crude are cheaper than any American offering… so, what would any normal person choose? There’s nothing that the USA can do, either… short of attacking the Saudis, which isn’t going to happen. The GOP fires the gun… and finds it full of blanks. L’comédie humaine goes on its merry way.

5 October 2014. “Not in My Name”… Iranian Vid on ISIS… and Why REAL Muslims Oppose It

00 Iran Revolutionary Guards. 16.06

******

______________________________

If the USA wants to defeat the Islamists in Iraq, it has to involve Syria and Iran… but the Saudis and Qataris oppose that, as they wish to install a radical Islamist government, thinking that such an entity would be anti-Iranian. Yes, Virginia, the Wahhabis of the KSA believe that the mullahs in Iran are TOO LIBERAL. I shit you not. Besides that, there are tons of Shias in the oil-producing provinces of the KSA. In short, the KSA is volatile as all get-out, and the Qataris (and other minor Gulf States) are scared shitless that they’d go down in the undertow of a KSA capsizing. The ayatollahs are actually more lenient in some of their interpretations of Shari’a as compared to the ISIS radicals. Actually, the USA would do well to allow nature to take its course. Let Syria and Iran stomp ISIS… which they would do gleefully and without cost to the US Treasury. Trust me, they’d do a thorough job, as they’d have to live with the aftermath, as it’s in their neighbourhood. They’d follow the old rule of “don’t shit in your own nest”… they’d see to it that none of the radicals were alive under the sun if they could help it. The USA should stop catering to Israel’s whims… I’m no anti-Semite (in fact, I’m quite the opposite), but I can see where catering to Likud’s notions has hurt American interests in the region. It’s time to get sane. ISIS has to go, and the only way that one can do it is to involve the neighbours. The Syrian Arab Army is battle-hardened, and vets of the Iran-Iraq War lead the Iranian forces. ISIS wouldn’t have a chance. That’s that…
