The “War on Terrorism” for Oil: Folly of the Imperial Oil Adventure. Tolling Bells for Humanity

Faced with the end of the age of oil and systemic collapse, the leaders of the Anglo-American empire have engaged in increasingly violent and transparently futile zero-sum games to salvage what is left of a corrupt governmental and economic milieu.

Empire in crisis

From the BP-Deepwater Horizon catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico, crashing stock markets, and the bloody consequences of manufactured wars, it clear that the empire has lost control of its own criminal system.

As Michael C. Ruppert wrote in his 2004 book Crossing the Rubicon:

“There are many factors that the rulers of the American empire now have to manage as they read their own delusional map of the world. They have to:

Apportion dwindling resources among competitors, some of whom possess nuclear weapons;
Maintain and expand their control over enough of the oil and gas remaining to ensure their global dominance and maintain order among the citizens of the Empire;
Simultaneously manage a global economic system, made possible by hydrocarbon energy that is collapsing and in which the growing population is demanding more things that can only be supplied by using still more hydrocarbon energy;
Acknowledge that they cannot save their own economy without selling more of these products;
Control the exploding demand for oil and gas through engineered recessions and wars that break national economies;
Hide the evidence that they are systematically looting the wealth of all the people on the planet—even their own people—in order to maintain control;
Maintain a secret revenue system to provide enough off-the-books capital for military advantage; improving their technological posture, and funding covert operations;
Repress any dissent and head off any exposure to their actions;
Convince the population that they are honorable;
Kill off enough of the population so that they can maintain control after oil supplies have dwindled to the point of energy starvation.”

Never has this agenda, its tragic consequences and ultimate futility, been more obvious that with the unprecedented events of the past weeks.
