It should surprise no one that after the last “Terrorist Attack” that now people are saying “Why don’t we invade Yemen?” Let me make this simple, we’ll never invade Yemen. On the top of the list of reasons? Its believed that the Yemen oil reserves will run out by 2017. As I’ve mentioned before, Iraq isn’t a real country. After WW1 the British simply drew a map around all the Middle East Oil and you have Iraq. To top it off, they made sure that Iraq wouldn’t have a port because they kept it separate from their colony which became Kuwait.
But its not just about the Oil. Of the 9/11 terrorists, a far majority of them are from Saudi Arabia. There were also two from the United Arab Emirates and one from Egypt. But following 9/11 we didn’t attack Saudi Arabia or UAE. Of course not, Saudi Arabia is one of our best allies. Instead we attacked Afghanistan. Now I agree that Bin Laden was in Afghanistan, but considering the questionable state of the Afghan military, did we really have to invade and take it over? They couldn’t stop us if we simply entered the country to remove Bin Laden. Don’t even get me started on the fact that we had Bin Laden captured but a call from the White House called off the dogs.
But what really matters is central asia oil. You may not have heard of Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan or Turkmenistan, but they are sitting on the worlds largest supply of untapped oil. The problem is running a pipeline to the Indian ocean. One look at a map shows running south from Kazakhstan that if you can’t go through Iran (We can’t) the next best route that doesn’t involve 13 countries is Afghanistan. To top it off the man we made Prime Minister is a former UNOCOAL Consultant.
But you ask, what about the terrorist training camps? In reality the “terrorist training camps” were actually military training camps for the continued Afghan civil war. Although pushed back to the brink of Elimination, the Northern Alliance was continuing the fight against the Taliban. This is key, as supposedly the Taliban was told to finish off the fight with the Northern Alliance or else by quasi-diplomats from American Oil Companies. They couldn’t complete the pipeline while the Northern Alliance held that land. The Taliban informed Bin Laden of the threat, who then decided to strike first.
This is why we won’t invade Yemen. Even if lets say every “terrorist” in Iraq and Afghanistan suddenly picks up and moves to Yemen, we still won’t bother with them. In the end, lets be serious, even if we pulled out of Iraq and Afghanistan they aren’t going to suddenly “take the fight to America”. Sure, they might get the occasional nutjob like this flight, but there’s nothing you can do about those people. We just need to hire real security for our airports and not the dredges of society who are yelling at your grandma about her lipstick container. We need to stop raping and pillaging countries at will like its our right. Stop supporting right wing dictators because its good for business. This’ll never happen though. Just as we didn’t invade Saudi Arabia, UAE or Egypt, we won’t invade Yemen. We don’t fight this supposed War On Terror where it makes sense, we fight it where it makes our people rich.
