Oil Imperialism... Empty Oil Imperialism...

With U.S. President Barack Obama declaring Venezuela a “threat to national security” a political patina is applied to the economic interests of U.S. based multi-national oil companies. Venezuela has the largest proved reserves of oil in the world and the (President Nicolas) Maduro government wants to use it to provide for the people of Venezuela. Al Qaeda attacks on 9/11 were in large measure a reaction to U.S. military bases in Saudi Arabia. Canada’s oil is inefficient (costly) to extract. The Iran-Iraq War found the U.S. supplying both sides with arms while using Iraq to try to force Iran back into the U.S. sphere of influence. Current Obama administration reconciliation with Iran has Iranian and Iraqi oil flowing through U.S. pipelines to Europe. The ‘savage’ ISIS (Islamic State) could spend the next century in Iraq and only a fraction of the carnage caused by the U.S. invasion would result. The Kuwaiti oil industry was started by what are today BP and Chevron. The first Gulf War resolved an oil dispute between Iraq and Kuwait in Kuwait’s favor. The U.S. facilitated coup in Ukraine is a conflict with Russia over who supplies Europe with oil and gas. Libya was substantially destroyed by the U.S. and France to control Libyan oil. Source: EIA.

Aye, It's always about the oil.
