EU countries buying oil from ISIS might be the reason why they wont join U.S in bombing Syria
Last week, President Obama came out acting all John Wayne to the camera and stated that he has finalized his new strategy for taking out the ISIS threat in the Middle East. ¬†Included in this strategy was the desire for NATO countries such as Britian and Germany to be part of his coalition, along with several Arab nations who are suddenly feeling the heat from the radical caliphate.
But interestingly enough, Britain, Germany, and Turkey announced they won’t sing kumbaya with America in their desire to take out ISIS by way of Assad and Syria, and perhaps the reason for this is that on Sept. 15, members of the European Union (EU) admitted that they are purchasing oil from ISIS, who took over several wells in Iraq when they solidified their occupation.
A¬†senior European Union official has revealed that some EU member states have purchased oil from ISIL Takfiri militants¬†despite their rhetoric against the group.
In a briefing to the European Parliament Foreign Affairs Committee,¬†EU Ambassador to Iraq Jana Hybas-kova said some European countries have purchased crude from the ISIL.
She, however, refused to disclose any names despite pressure by some Parliament members to do so. – Sott.net
So in other words, contrary to Western propaganda, ALL conflicts in the Middle East are INDEED about oil.
The prostitution of principals by Europe over U.S. or United Nations sanctions is not new, and was the foundation of a scandal during the 1990’s between a number of European governments and Iraq’s Saddam Hussein. ¬†The infamous ‘Oil for Food‘ scandal involved billions of dollars, and evidence revealed that EU countries were buying oil from Hussien despite the sanctions, which was later used to buy weapons and arms from these same countries.
Old colonial powers like Britian, France, and even the United States use war and sanctions as a justification for achieving their own national goals, and not for the purposes of humanitarian relief or democratization for the people. ¬†And for years many intelligent people were labeled as conspiracy theorists for claiming that the Iraq war was done for the purpose of oil, which of course was later proven to be accurate when no WMD’s were ever found, and the underlying reason for invasion was Saddam Hussein’s implementation of selling oil for Euros which threatened the petro-dollar. ¬†And today, even when the Al Qaeda splinter group ISIS is threatening the sovereignty and very lives of millions of people, all that is on the minds of many EU states is how they can be assured of getting their oil, even if it means doing business with terrorists.
