Syria Solution: Three Natural Gas Pipelines.

Syria’s war and humanitarian crisis has gone on for over two years. Every rational man and woman on Earth realizes that the catastrophe must end. Because of the mafia-like competition for energy markets in Europe, which includes the killing of civilians by all mafia groups/nations, millions of innocent Syrians are suffering tremendously. War is insanity, plain and simple.

It has become obvious to me that the crisis in Syria and the Middle East region is all about control of the natural resources in the region, namely natural gas and oil, gaining market share in regions where customers buy those energy resources, and maximization of profits. When business competition degrades to the point where hundreds of thousands-millions of innocent people are murdered, become refugees, and entire nations are destroyed and lie in ruins-humanity must stop and consider making great changes.

Many have far more expertise on the Middle East than I, and we hope that reasonable suggestions will come forward soon to finally bring peace to that important energy-rich region of the Earth. The analyst in the following video points out the major players in this natural gas market competition gone insane: Iran, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Israel, the United States, Russia and Syria.

A number of other countries have stakes in the natural gas industry as well, to a lesser extent than those mentioned, including France and China. All have stakes in the competition for natural gas market share and profits from the people and countries of Europe as well as nations east of the Middle East region.

The video is from a September 15 program called “The Debate” where a man by the name of Zaid Hamid is interviewed about Syria, the Middle East, the Project for a New American Century, American neo-conservatives, and what is really going on in Syria. It is the first time I have ever heard of “The Debate” or Zaid Hamid. My best guess, I am not certain what country this program originates from, is that it originated in Iran or Pakistan.

While listening to this interview a thought came to mind that perhaps three pipelines to Europe would be a possible solution.

Iran would run their pipeline through Iraq and Syria allowing their natural gas to eventually be sold in Europe.

Qatar would run their pipeline through Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Syria allowing their natural gas to eventually be sold to Europe as well.

Israel would run their pipeline across the Mediterranean allowing their natural gas to be sold to Europe as well.

Is such an idea for a solution to the present humanitarian crisis, which is obviously because of the competition for a multi-billion dollar, perhaps 500 billion dollars per year, market, doable and possible? What steps and actions would be needed to bring the major players to the negotiating table to hammer out an agreement which would be agreed upon by all? How could such an agreement come about and be implemented so that each party becomes convinced that it is fair and honorable for the people of each country?

One thinks about the auto industry, where competition is present between automakers from the United States, Germany, Japan, South Korea and other nations. Do these corporations resort to war and killing to gain market share and profits? Some will consider the competition in the auto industry as “dog-eat-dog” and stiff, yet, without knowing what really occurs of a shady nature in the auto industry as well as other major industries on Earth, there is no killing of millions of people to gain sales and profits.

What separates the energy industries from the auto industry with regard to the horrific lengths the war for energy control exhibits, seen in the destruction of entire countries and populations, compared to the much more peaceful competition between automakers? Here is the question which goes to the heart of the matter. Who are the people who initiate wars and killing in the quest for control, wealth and power, and what are their motivations?

Do those who start wars and killing have the health and well-being of the people of the Earth at the center of their motives, or is the love of money truly the root of all evil?

Why is it that we rarely never hear from members of the Rothschild family or the Rockefeller family regarding the situation in Syria, the Middle East, and other war-torn countries and regions of the Earth? Why have we not seen and heard Queen Elizabeth and members of the “Royal Family”, as well as “Royalty” from all countries, speak about solutions for the Syria crisis, and solutions for war-torn countries and regions?  How do these individuals, who represent the wealthiest families on Earth, who control unimaginable amounts of stock in corporations covering a vast expanse of essential industries, stay completely out of the news and media, when their views could enlighten the world regarding the activities of the corporations and governments they control?

Has humanity come to a point where the phenomenon of “Royalty” is no longer acceptable? Where individuals and families around the world hold wealth in the hundreds of billions-trillions-of dollars while a large percentage of the human race tries to survive on $1/day? Humanity has come to a profound awareness that this historic reality, where royals and the ultra-rich were once seen with a sense of admiration and respect, is not able to assure the greatest health and well-being of men, women and children of the world, that in fact the actions of so-called “Royals” and ultra-rich have greatly damaged the health and well-being of people, and have done so for centuries.

Gore Vidal once gave credit to the aristocracy for their ability to remain “invisible”, to the point where the people of the world are almost totally unaware of their existence.

The concept of bringing peace through war is rapidly losing its appeal to the people of the Earth.

Humanity is witnessing the beginning of the end for war.

How will the competitive drives of each player in this geopolitical Superbowl, if you will, be shaped to change from the cut-throat, military tactics and strategies to ones where fair and honest competition is realized, where no innocent civilians suffer harm or are killed?

    1. Robert,
      As mentioned in the piece, I just stumbled upon this interview. The man is from Pakistan and seemed to be pointing out the reality of the geopolitical situation. Just trying to find the truth and share with others. If what I present is divergent of facts I welcome any and all correction(s). I don’t take sides because there is only one side: humanity.
      Thank you,


    1. Henry,
      How are you. I’ve always been interested in the views that men and women from other countries hold. This interest began shortly after reading Ben Bagdikian’s book “The Media Monopoly” and noticing that the views of people from other countries were very rarely seen or heard on American television. Some may listen to this interview and discount what the man says because he hasn’t been on “Face The Nation” or “Meet The Press”. Those who would discount fail to understand that the owners of NBC and CBS find his views to be at odds with their agendas, and for that reason he will never be heard on those networks.
      Thank you,
