[ Editor’s Note: The bullseye is clearly focused on what is one of the hidden causes that allgedly freedom loving America could conspire with the Saudis to savage Iraq, Syria, and Yemen. There is an old saying for this, “It’s the money stupid”.
VT has repeatedly published how the underground black gold seems to be a magnet for terrorists appearing on top of it, which then requires the US military to come in and ‘protect’ it by pushing the terrorists out.
Yemen has recently published how Al Qaeda was hyped inside their country to create an opportunity for US intervention. As huge amount of oils have been found in the area, why leave Yemen to enjoy its future wealth all by itself, right?
We have Turkey and its jihadis sitting on top of northern Idlib, where there is an offshore oil field discovered long ago via satellite technology that VT people were aware of.
The Western Iraq oil wealth in Deir Ezzor province extends over the border into Western Iraq, where we also saw a jihadi army take control over, while the US military watched and did nothing. Only an idiot would not think the US and friends were not in on the scam from the outset.
We can go down into Africa, to other places where satellite discoveries of hidden oil also seem to find jihadi terrorist problems in the area, preventing development, until the right puppet government gets puts in charge and the discoveries magically appear in the media.

The secretary-general of Lebanon’s resistance movement of Hezbollah says the Zionist-American axis is still seeking to realize its dream of stretching the areas under the Israeli regime’s occupation from the Nile to the Euphrates.
“The axis is still seeking to realize the dream of the Nile to the Euphrates,” Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said during a televised address on Wednesday.
The occupying regime claimed existence in a hugely Western supported and favored war in 1948 by seizing huge expanses of regional territories. It overran other vast swathes of territory in another such war in 1967.
Later, the regime and its Zionist supporters around the world were widely reported to be seeking to expand the territories under its occupation to such a sheer extent that would cover some of the areas lying between the two rivers.
Nasrallah said the axis uses “sectarian and religious plots” as a weapon. He said the Zionists and Americans are deploying the weapon by trying to paint a “sectarian tone” over regional conflicts.
‘Saudi war on Yemen guided by US plots for region’
Referring to the war on Yemen, Nasrallah said contrary to what Saudi Arabia sought to portray at the beginning of the military campaign, the conflict has nothing to do with “Shias and Sunnis.”
The Hezbollah chief was referring to the main Islamic religious strands and attempts at sowing division between the two.
“The war is rather guided by the United States’ goals and its plots for the region,” Nasrallah said.
He said there was a “media war” underway against Yemen’s defenders to cast them as the party that rejects any cessation of the war and Riyadh as the one that seeks the campaign’s termination.
Saudi Arabia led its allies into the war in 2015 to restore power to its favorite officials in Yemen, but they have hit a dead end in the face of the Yemeni army’s successful defense campiagn, which has left Riyadh and its partners bogged down in the country.
In recent weeks, Yemen’s defense forces have managed to retake many areas from the coalition in the west-central province of Ma’rib. Saudi Arabia and its allied Western government’s media outlets are, at the same timeclaiming that Sana’a is rejecting Riyadh’s peace proposal.
Sana’a, on the other hands, notes that it has not received any such initiative in writing, and asserts that Riyadh has to show it is serious about ending the war.
Nasrallah insisted that any potential truce has to be accompanied by a cessation of the siege, as required by Sana’a.
They are, thus, seeking to keep up their pressure on Yemen in order to force it to the negotiating table, he stated. “The invading forces are trying to realize what they could not realize through war by means of social pressure.”
However, the Yemenis “have the upper hand” and cannot be duped into ending their defense of the country, Nasrallah asserted. He, therefore, advised Riyadh “not to waste your time. Dishonesty will not have any benefit for year. Just go ahead and end the war and the siege.”
