America claims Syria's oil. Can Syria now claim America's oil too?
I'm off to Texas tomorrow. Going to stay with a friend in Dallas for a few days, and also try to pitch my latest murder mystery at a book conference as well. And I'm also going to find myself in the heart of the American oil industry, in that great state that gave us Texaco, James Dean in Giant, fourteen major Houston oil refineries and two of the most corrupt and mendacious presidents we've ever had -- George Bush and George Bush.
And then there's the northeastern state of Deir Ezzor, located in Syria. It's got oil too. And President Trump has just announced that Deir Ezzor's oil is actually America's oil. Who knew? https://thegrayzone.com/2019/10/23/us-troops-staying-syria-oil/
But does this mean that all the oil in Texas now belongs to President Assad? Is there a quid pro quo at work here too? I'm about to go to Dallas and find out. https://caitlinjohnstone.com/2019/10/25/we-want-to-keep-the-oil/
PS: Syria also owns a whole bunch of UNESCO world heritage sites as well as a whole bunch of oil. Isn't it time that the United Nations made a new rule about antiquities (as well as a new rule about oil too?) "If you invade a country that has an official UNESCO world heritage site, then you get thrown out of the UN." That makes perfect sense.
The Saudis would get thrown out of the UN for trying to destroy Saana, right? And America would get thrown out of the UN for engineering, planning, financing and/or staging invasions of Afghanistan, Libya, Iraq, Palestine, Lebanon, etc.
Hell, America should have been kicked out of the UN way back when Kissinger invaded Cambodia! Remember Angkor Watt?
Stop Wall Street and War Street from destroying our world. And while you're at it, please buy my books. https://www.amazon.com/Jane-Stillwater/e/B00IW6O1RM
