    By: Robert Tilford


    According to reports al-Qaeda flags are flying openly in some areas of Idlib and Aleppo provinces that straddle the borders with Turkey and Iraq (see article: Al-Qaeda tries to carve out a war for itself in Syria The flags are increasing more common in Syria, especially with the influx of new arms and cash in the region. The Daily Telegraph witnessed the black flag used by al Qaeda flying high in several villages and on pick up trucks of rebel fighters, the article noted.
    “The place (Syria) is crawling with al-Qeada

    Before the Iraq War we had 0% Iraq OIL, except through back door trades. Now, may I ask what percentage of Iraqi OIL do we get? What does that amount in dollars and cents and who profits? The foreign oil contracts are a necessary cost of doing business and are a drop in the proverbial bucket.

    The no-bid contracts are unusual for the industry, and the offers prevailed over others by more than 40 companies, including companies in Russia, China and India. The contracts, which would run for one to two years and are relatively small by industry standards, would nonetheless give the companies an advantage in bidding on future contracts in a country that many experts consider to be the best hope for a large-scale increase in oil production.

    The problem is that the US is actively aiding the Syrian rebels and therefore Al Qaeda.

    Re: US Treasury Confirms that Al Qaeda Runs Syrian “Rebellion”

    A guy who writes for Infowars, Tony Cartalucci, writes a piece which is based on an op-ed piece, which doesn't actually support his assertion.

    Here's the opinion piece which Mr. Cartalucci cites in the article in the OP Seth Jones: Al Qaeda's War for Syria - WSJ.com

    Somehow there's no indication that aQ is running anything, merely that they had been in Syria since we invaded Iraq, and that they're still in Syria and a small organization which is growing.

    think what you will
    I may be wrong.

A growing number of donors from the Persian Gulf and Levant appear to be sending financial support."

    This undercuts the West's year and a half-long narrative that Syria's violence was the result of a so-called "uprising" by the people of Syria.

    the second paragraph there is inaccurate.

    I've always found it strange they for more than a decade we have been looking for al qaeda while always knowing where they are at the same time.

    When I read that article, something in the way it was written didn't sit right with me. Seemed unprofessional and speculative in tone.

    Global Research is headed up by professor Michel Chossudovsky.

    MICHAEL CHOSSUDOVSKY, PROFESSOR OF ECONOMICS, UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA
    As overseer of the anti-U.S., anti-globalization website GlobalResearch.ca, Chossudovsky has manufactured a long list of eyebrow-raising accusations that often read more like wild-eyed conspiracy theories than serious political discourse: the U.S. had foreknowledge of the 9/11 attacks ("Of course they knew!"); "Washington's New World Order weapons have the ability to trigger climate change"; the U.S. knew in advance about the December 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, but kept it to themselves (apparently so they could ride to the rescue of devastated coastal regions); big banking orchestrates the collapse of national economies. Of course, all that talk of banking conspiracies can lead one into some bigoted territory. B'nai Brith Canada has complained to the University of Ottawa about anti-Semitic postings on Chossudovsky's site.
    Here's another article from Global Research. Conclusion; the government did 9/11 to preempt war on Iraq.

    Frankly, this article should be in conspiracy theories.

    The US has refused intervention? Seriously? The US is active, they have their para's over there.

    As I said, they can now blame their own prices on foreigners and claim we can do nothing about it. When Americans had to pay the price set by American companies, the people had some leverage against them. That's why the oil companies were only able to charge a dollar a barrel when we were independent. Prices are always dependent on what the seller can get away with. The American people were more democratic back then, so the greedy oil barons had to come up with this scheme of closing down domestic drilling and making us dependent on the Arabs, who could raise the prices charged by America's enemies at home and abroad on both imported and domestic oil.
