Global flattery: When the money talks, the truth is silent
When the people burn each other, racism is being increased, people are becoming poorer, dictators are more strengthened, millions of people were forced to flee own countries, what are the politicians of so-called civilized world doing? All of them are slave of the global capitalist capital and all are part of this flattery game.
Of course the main subject is oil-money relationship over politicians. Last days it appears thoroughly that they do not have limits their hypocrisy. When the Saudi king died, they have been lightening with the power of money one more time. They were trying to hide the truth, but they had always good relations with the Saudi king. As if they have very bad relations with Saudi dynasty earlier, why did they make statements by seeing this as an opportunity? Saudi Arabia’s dark, rotten fundamentalist dictatorship was not a matter, somehow. The most important thing is money for politicians; it has been always like that. Maybe, we need to open a parenthesis.
The politicians think like this way, but what do the public think? Of course, policy makers are moving by the public conscience of their countries. For example, I wonder, how many people thought that supporting of ordinary citizens of Saudi Arabia when seeing their pressure under the regime. Or how many people chose to insult with saying “they are Arabs, they are living always like this,”. This way of thinking was strengthened the hands of politicians? -To see each Russian as enemy, to see each German as Nazi, to see each American as war propagandist, to see each British as pro-imperialism or etc.- All of them are wrong, then…
Anyway, this is another topic subject; let’s go back to our topic, so politicians’ flattery.
US and UK, after September 11, the Gulf petro-dollars of capital have put limits on buying large in these countries, Saudi-based financial investment agreements overturned. After a few years with major global crisis, the US, UK and EU-based financial capital, began to erode the doors of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf for financial capital large-scale investment to finance, and recovery funds. At the first time a British prime minister, together BP and the delegation is the largest monopoly bosses like Rolls Royce, visits were made to Saudi Arabia and other petro-dollars sheikhdoms with saying “Make invest to us”, “contribute to global companies and banks our rescue fund”, “Please support the IMF fund”.
With global monopoly capitalism deepening crisis, 2 trillion dollars of finding funds of Golf flowed to the banks and stock markets. According to one account, investment and partnership of the financial capital of Golf reached $ 1.5 trillion in UK and EU.
Citigroup, Morgan Stanley, the world’s largest financial capital groups such as Merrill Lynch, has been rescued with billions of dollars of Saudi-Gulf financial capital to common stock purchase. London Stock Exchange can stand with the billion dollars of investment funds of Saudi Arabia and Qatar. Petro-dollar capital is big shareholders of numerous global banks from Citigroup to Deutsche Bank, food sector like Starbuck, insurance, real estate, stock market, energy, automotive, weapons, retail, tourism, health monopoly. In addition, it is the largest sponsor of the club like Arsenal, Manchester City, Paris Saint Germain, Barcelona, Milan, Hamburg.
Foreign investments of Qatar have been occurred $ 45 billion investment in London, totaled $ 30 billion to Paris for last five years.
The most important global agreements of Qatar are buying share of Harrods with payment $ 2,3 billion, buying Shell’s %3 share with payment $ 11 billion, buying %5 Siemens share with payment $ 5 billion, to buy $ 2,4 billion Deutsche Bank shares. And plus, $ 1,3 billion investment to the HSBC Bank Tower, $ 1,5 billion investment to the Shard London. Qatar has invested millions of dollars in strategic areas in China, Turkey, Indonesia, Spain, Hong Kong and Switzerland also.
By the way, let’s look the world oil market with OECD countries
According to preliminary data, the fact is that OECD countries have increased refining, crude oil inventories, and stocks of petroleum products for the last five years, starting in August 2010.
OPEC oil production in December 2014 has increased from 30.48 mb/d to 80 kb/d. This growth in supply is the highest level in the last 35 years to reimburse the loss of supplies from Libya in connection with the escalation of and Iraq armed conflict. A top oil producer Saudi Arabia has kept unchanged production levels.
North America has provided to this growth, offsetting reduction in supplies in other regions. Latin America fell significant volumes of deliveries (150 kb/d), supply from countries. Russian oil production has fallen by about 140 kb/d year on year.
Oil production in Libya was reduced by 250 kb/d, which is the most significant reduction when compared to months for more than a year. The reason of this, the attack to vital oil export terminals in the country. In this month(december 2014), Iraq has showed record levels of exports from the southern terminals and is also very high levels from the northern terminal as a result of achieving the export deal between Baghdad and the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG).
In the background, preparing a new round of diplomatic negotiations on the nuclear program with the participation of Iran in late June, it has entered into a long-term agreement that allows to reverse tough economic sanctions imposed on Iran by the US and EU. Until then, it remains in effect partial lifting of sanctions under preliminary agreements reached in November 2013. As part of the agreement, Iran can not export more than 1 mb/d of crude oil. During 2014 the supply of Iranian crude oil, measured from importers, about 90 kb / d exceeded the limit and were approximately 70 kb / d higher than last year.
Oil production in Kuwait has not decrease due to the prolonged stoppage of oil production at the field Khafji, with a joint venture with Saudi Arabia in the neutral zone did not demonstrate a significant change in the comparison by month and in December amounted to 2.77 mb / d. Similar trends were observed for Qatar. Oil production has increased by 50 kb/d year on month to 2.76 mb/d.
In West Africa: Nigeria’s oil production fell from 50 kb/d to 1.87 mb/d in connection with maintenance and supply disruption for a number of export destinations. Overall in 2014, Nigeria has reduced the supply of 50 kb/d to an average of 1.91 mb/d, Angola reduced deliveries from 60 kb/d to 1.66 mb/d.
I do not understand the statistics. But it appears that the direction of increasing or decreasing of oil and money. The real winners are obvious as result of the wars. As long as the politicians’ flatteries continue, this craziness will continue.
