Glenn Beck explained that there are two oil and natural gas pipelines that have been vying for access to Syria, one of which would go through Iran and Iraq, the other of which would go through Qatar and Saudi Arabia. The latter was denied by Syria, Beck said, much to the dismay of Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
Saudi Arabia offered to pay for a U.S. strike on Syria. “It’s all about money and oil. They want a pipeline, and they are prepared to do anything to get the pipeline that benefits them as opposed to the other pipeline.”
GEE… Iran and Iraq to Russia, or Qatar and Saudi Arabia to the West.
And what strike could America possibly make which would not result in troops feet on the ground? What tempered strike would not result in a mess which cuts the flow of oil?
