The American oil giant, UNOCAL, had plans for an oil and gas pipeline through Afghanistan, but the Taliban were not sufficiently cooperative. The US invasion of Afghanistan was used to install Hamid Karzai, who had been on UNOCAL’s payroll, as puppet prime minister. US neoconservative Zalmay Khalilzad, who also had been on UNOCAL’s payroll, was installed as US ambassador to Afghanistan. Two years later Khalilzad was appointed US ambassador to Iraq. American oil companies have been given control over the exploitation of Iraq’s oil resources.It is the same thing America have been doing all the time in Latin America. Oil has long dominated American government. The Texas oil industry has been complaining that the world oil industry is being dominated by State owned companies and no areas are open to private (American) exploration. A Texas oil government, headed by Bush and Cheney, are only doing their job making available oil rich regions, such as Iraq, to Texas oil companies.
In testimony before Congress on February 1 of this year, former National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski said that he expected the regime to orchestrate a "head-on conflict with Iran and with much of the world of Islam at large." He said a plausible scenario was "a terrorist act blamed on Iran, culminating in a ‘defensive’ US military action against Iran." He said that the neoconservative propaganda machine was already articulating a "mythical historical narrative" for widening their war against Islam.Who is pumping Iran's oil? Since Carter sacked the Shah, surely they not the Americans. Well, I hear them saying in Dallas "Its high time to correct that mistake."
