U.S. Spills The Beans: Trump Wants To ‘seize’ Syrian Oil

Trump Tells The World That He Wants Syrian Oil For The U.S.

From daily News Line in Britain:

EIGHT EU nations: France, Germany, Belgium, Denmark, Italy, Greece, the Netherlands and Portugal will support a European-led naval mission in the Strait of Hormuz, France’s Foreign Ministry announced yesterday.

The initiative to send European warships to the Gulf seemed dead in the water last year when the UK announced that it would be joining a US-led maritime coalition in the region.

However, France resurrected the plan yesterday, pushing for an alternative European-led maritime security coalition in the Persian Gulf, opening the prospect of both a US and EU anti-Iranian force in the Strait of Hormuz.

The US is seeking to send a naval coalition to police the Persian Gulf including Australia, Bahrain, the UK, Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Israel. …

The Strait is in some parts less than 21 nautical miles wide, yet a third of the world’s liquefied natural gas and almost 25% of total global oil consumption passes through it, giving it extreme strategic importance.

Tensions in the Persian Gulf began escalating in May 2019, after the US announced that it would be deploying a carrier strike group to the region to counter an unspecified ‘Iranian threat’ to its interests.

  1. It is very important that the Strait remains open. The main and only trait to close the Strait comes from Iran. If Iran doesn’t want a war it should try nothing to close the stait of Hormuz and hinder oiltransport. We will see how peace loving the Iranian governerment realy is.

    RUSSIA claimed that the US intelligence chief that planned the assassination of Iranian commander General Qasem Soleimani was killed in a plane downed over Afghanistan on Wednesday.

    Intelligence sources said that the head of CIA operations in Iran, Michael D’Andrea, was on board the Bombardier E-11A plane which crashed in Ghazni.

    The Taliban claimed to have shot down the spy plane, although this has not been confirmed.

    Mr D’Andrea was seen as taking a more aggressive stance towards Iran since he was appointed head of the CIA’s Iran mission centre in 2017.

    He was known by the nicknames Ayatollah Mike, the Dark Prince and the Undertaker.

    The CIA chief was known for the agency’s notorious “signature strike” in which drone attacks were launched against people simply because of a belief that their behaviour made them appear to be terrorists.

    It is believed that he also masterminded the murder of former Hezbollah boss Imad Mughniyeh in Damascus, Syria, in 2008 and played a key role in the hunt for Osama bin Laden.
