Another excerpt:

Nevertheless, the truth of the matter is that control over Venezuela’s oil is indeed one of the motivations behind this conflict, though not in the way that it’s being portrayed. Alongside ensuring full geopolitical control over the Caribbean Basin and ideologically confronting socialism, the US wants to obtain predominant influence over Venezuela in order to incorporate it into a parallel OPEC-like structure for challenging the joint Russian-Saudi OPEC+ arrangement per the author’s late-2016 prediction about the formation of a “North American-South American Petroleum Exporting Countries” (NASAPEC) cartel. This entity would function as “Fortress America’s” energy component and have the potential to exert powerful long-term pressure on the international oil market at Russia and Saudi Arabia’s expense. When coupled with the US and Qatar’s joint LNG investment plans, it’s clear to see that the US is making a global power play for control over the world’s energy industry, which could very adversely affect Russia.

     However, could the EU be so simple minded as not to be aware of this!!

I do realize that the 5 eyes + Israel are in with the US, after all  'birds of the same feather flock together'...
  Even including the rest of the 9 eyes;  but others must be against a repeat of Iraq and Libya...

It is common knowledge that US has oil. But why is it still meddling with Middle East all through  ...

The US meddling in the Middle East is partly out of stupidity and partly provoked by Israel. Don't get me wrong. I support the existence of Israel as a safe place for the Jewish people. But I also support a safe Palestine. The suffering of the Palestinians is a major cause of the current Islamic extremism. Israel must be controlled by the West.
My problem is simple: I just know better than everyone-else!
