U.S. Using Anti-Terror War to Gain World Oil Reserves

No shit, Sherlock! Now tell me something I don't already know! Sorry! I know! It's my site and I put this story up and I'm preaching to the converted but it's still a good story and more of an explanation to this war-war thing we have going on than all the BS about Al-Quaidaeeee-da-dee-da-dee-da-dee and Osama "I work for the CIA" Bin Laden and how there's these hoardes of nasty Mooslim (aka fake religious twits) fanatics hell-bent on destroying "our way of life". All this "terrorism" is fearmongering bullshit and everyone who harps on about it is either a complete misguided moron, or they are making money out of it by writing books, stealing oil or taking political "donations".

On the pretext of fighting international terrorism the United States is trying to establish control over the world’s richest oil reserves, Leonid Shebarshin, ex-chief of the Soviet Foreign Intelligence Service, who heads the Russian National Economic Security Service consulting company, said in an interview for the Vremya Novostei newspaper.

Using the anti-terrorist cause as a cover the United States has occupied Afghanistan, Iraq and will soon move to impose their “democratic order” on the Greater Middle East, Shebarshin said. “The U.S. has usurped the right to attack any part of the globe on the pretext of fighting the terrorist threat,” Shebarshin said.

Referring to his meeting with an unnamed al-Qaeda expert at the Rand Corporation, a nonprofit research organization in the U.S., Shebarshin said: “We have agreed that [al-Qaeda] is not a group but a notion.”

“The fight against that all-mighty ubiquitous myth deliberately linked to Islam is of great advantage for the Americans as it targets the oil-rich Muslim regions,” Shebarshin emphasized.

With military bases in Afghanistan, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan, Shebarshin said, the United States has already established control over the Caspian region — one of the world’s largest oil reservoirs.
