The ruling elite want to keep its Saudi oil connection pumping and the contracts from the Gulf States alive. It is about oil and money. But it's about much more than that.
The Money Party (aka ruling elite) has one set of tactics for achieving their goals -- intimidation, subversion, war, and destruction. These are very blunt instruments. Why not? Who will stop them? Assad is pro-Iranian, he's in power, and he won't leave. So, what to do? Take control of the storyline, create a rationale for the anti-Syrian campaign, and get your minions in the two parties and the corporate media to execute the strategy.
While the country and much of the world languishes in a real depression, the leaders waste time on projects like this. As we face the imminent decline in the ability of the environment to support the human population, there's no real effort to address that issue. The leaders are just too busy with Syria.
What will The Money Party do if it doesn't get its way right away? Does the term false flag ring a bell?
February 1, 2007: "If the United States continues to be bogged down in a protracted
bloodyinvolvement in Iraq(Syria), the final destination on this downhill track is likely to be a head-on conflict with Iran and with much of the world of Islam at large. A plausible scenario for a military collision with Iran involves Iraqi failure to meet the benchmarks; followed by accusations of Iranian responsibility for the failure; then by some provocation in Iraq ora terrorist act in the U.S. blamed on Iran; culminating in a defensive U.S. military action against Iran that plunges a lonely America into a spreading and deepening quagmire eventually ranging across Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan"" (Zbigniew Brzezinski, Senate Foreign Relations Committee countering George W Bush's push for an attack on Iran - See Quds Force II - the Storyline Repeats Itself)
