RMB sword about to pierce the dollar’s heart in Syria!
Many readers used to ask: Since Syria is ten thousand miles away from our country, why do you say it is related to China's national destiny? The above is my answer. For residents of china, when the United States takes control of the oil valve, global markets will be badly hit. The arrival of the super-inflation cycle will increase the living expenses of Chinese residents. We recall the 2003 war in Iraq. After the oil prices rose, the price of necessities soared and the dollar caused global inflation. Though cruel, this is the truth. Today, the reason China has sent money to Syria, where the Russian military was bogged down in the war, is to fight against the US vampire, in essence, for the entire national economy and the future of the nation. It is absolutely vital for China to work tirelessly nonstop to achieve full independence and break the financial shackles of the United States. To break US financial colonization, we must not only abolish its oil hegemony but also build a new energy system. Then after six years of constant political and economic support to sustain Syria, she will inevitably see the dawn of victory at last.
Agence France-Presse reported that at 18:30 pm on May 18, US fighters carried out air raids on Syrian government forces (SAA, Syrian Arab Army) advancing along the Damascus-Baghdad international road at the Syria-Jordan border near the Al-Tanf base located 50 km from the Al-Shuhaimi area at the Syria-Iraq border. US forces directly scrambled F-22 fighters to intercept the Su-22 fighters reinforcing the Syrian air force. The key to this news is that in order to get through Damascus to Iraq's international highway, the Syrian government forces first had officially entered an air raid area, with Iran and Russia providing military support for the operation. As seen on the map (open here to see map), this action was not aimed at the US military base at the Jordan border area, but to open up the Syria-Iraq border, so that Iran-supported Syrian and Iraqi Shiite militias could converge.
If in the future the government forces liberate Deir ez-Zor at the Iraqi-Syrian border, then the opening in the southern Syrian-Iraqi border will become larger and larger. Geographically, this is equivalent to the Shiite crescent opening up the southern region, but it is also the basis for the future laying of the Shiite oil and gas pipeline. In other words, the US-led Sunni pipeline would suffer a major failure. In Syria, a swath from Damascus to Aleppo City is nearly all under the control of the government military. On May 21, the last batch of anti-government militants was removed from the central city of Homs to complete the evacuation, and the Syrian government took full control of the city. This means that the government's military controls most of the main highway in the western part of Syria, and the attempt by the United States to open the Sunni pipeline is completely lost. This plus the future penetration to the southern Syria-Iraq border, will secure the achievement of the Shiite pipeline, devastating the US Middle East oil strategy.
In view of the current problem the United States naturally will not sit idly by. US President Trump has traveled to Saudi Arabia and Israel, and Saudi Arabia has signed cooperation contracts worth $350 billion. This cooperation deal is actually a down payment by the Saudis in a bid to have the US deploy troops to Syria. Saudi Arabia suffered a major defeat in the Yemen battlefield, and if another loss is suffered in Syria, the legitimacy of the Saudi king will be questioned, and a palace coup could probably not be avoided. Deployment of troops to the Middle East and a westward strategic focus by the US will no doubt speed up. The situation on the Korean peninsula will tend to ease.
The reason Saudi Arabia is willing to pay a lot of money to the United States to send troops to the Middle East is to overthrow Assad and re-launch the Sunni pipeline. It wants to spend on having the United States send troops in hopes that in the future, it can recover its expenses through oil exports at increased oil prices. After pacification of Syria, Saudi Arabia would take the opportunity to lower oil prices from Russia for the European gas market. Russia, already dragged down by the Ukrainian situation, would face cost pressure from a Saudi Arabia enjoying a dominant position. Increased Saudi exports of natural gas to Europe would lead to a tough European policy toward Russia, while the US economic impact on Europe would be deepened. For example, through the import of European energy prices to suppress the European manufacturing industry deflation, forcing Europe to continue to maintain quantitative easing, and forcing European funds to pay for the US financial bubble. In addition, Saudi Arabia and the United States conspiring to suppress oil prices would lead to further deepening of economic difficulties in Russia; with crude oil prices at 20 dollars, Russia could not hold out for three years. Likewise, the imported contraction caused by the collapse in oil prices would lead to a halt in the resurgence of the recently emerged Chinese manufacturing industry, in conjunction with the domestic clamor of manipulators and the fifth column aggravating the Chinese economy and eventually money printing to pay for the US financial bubble – the usual routine.
Thus the Syrian situation and international oil prices are closely related, whenever the government forces in Syria score a major battlefield victory, international oil prices begin to soar. For example, in November 2016, victory in Aleppo led to a rise in international crude oil prices to the 50 US dollar mark. The US-Saudi market conspiracy to suppress and control international oil prices for was frustrated, Russia’s right to speak was enhanced; the market expected oil prices to rise, and crude oil to rebound. Russia and Iran's battlefield victory forced Saudi Arabia to seek compromise concessions, such as at the OPEC meeting, where Russia and Iran took a tough position insisting on Iran’s not only not cutting production but in fact increasing production. Conversely, when the opposition and terrorists supported by the US and Saudi Arabia achieve a breakthrough, the international market expects the United States and Saudi Arabia to gain control in Syria and open up the Sunni pipeline, in a low-cost strategy to squeeze Russia's natural gas exports to Europe ; short positions increased and the price fell. By the end of September 2015, terrorists and opposition parties almost drove the Syrian government forces into the sea, and the major cities in the country fell into enemy hands; in the process, international oil prices fell all the way down to 28 dollars. The photo shows Russia sending troops to Syria.
It should be noted that in this crude oil price game, although Russia and other countries can affect oil prices, the United States has the futures market pricing power; after the oil price rises, market news is released to suppress oil prices. If oil prices rise dramatically, the market media will advocate discovery of new oil fields or oil exports by the US. These are just little tricks to guide market expectations. In the big strategy, the United States also spread all kinds of so-called scientific discoveries through the media to manipulate the market, such as the British media reporting that sunspot activity has fallen and the world may become cold; the spread of oil may not be produced petrochemically and production may be infinite. These so-called scientific reports eventually result in suppressed oil prices. They can influence market decisions if released at the right time. So for a proper assessment, one must screen the news carefully. The underlying reason for doing so is analyzed later in the article.
So what is the relationship between the Middle East energy valve and China, and what is the benefit to China in this strategic chess game?
China needs to participate in the Syrian game, affecting international oil prices to prevent imported deflation damage to China's manufacturing industry. China also stands to gain huge financial benefits through Syria. The starting point of the aforesaid Sunni and Shiite two oil pipelines, is the Pars oil and gas fields. At present, PetroChina holds a 30% stake in Iran's South Pars oil and gas field. Further, the Shiite pipeline runs through the southern region of Iraq, where China has the largest area of oil and gas fields, so that pipeline can be incorporated into the main pipeline. This will be the first time that China exports natural gas exports to Europe, because the Chinese and European currencies are directly interchangeable. It will be equivalent to removing the “petro” part from petrodollar, boosting the euro while creating the petroyuan.
 NSS comment: this theory is on longer operative for at least 2 reasons:
1 – The Saudis are now hungry for profits and can no longer afford to sell oil at a loss.
2 – The US is hungry for profit from its oil and gas, as evidenced by Trump’s sales pitch in Warsaw to sell LNG to Poland and by the US Congress’ attempt to sanction parties participating in Russia’s Nordstream II and Turkish Stream pipelines.
The 2 partners believed in each other’s invincibility: The Saudis thought the US was invincible in war and the US thought the Saudis were invincible in their economic might. Their misplaced mutual trust has placed the US in the end stages of economic ruin, where the US government, including Trump, has played its last card (following the games of real estate bubble blowing and money printing), namely, naked economic aggression, i.e., forcing Europe to buy US gas in the overly pricey form of LNG, very much against their will.
 NSS comment: Just think what the US has lost by making an enemy out of terror-fighting Iran (starting with the CIA’s subversion of President Mosaddeq (also sp. Mosaddegh) in the 50s). It could have made such an investment in Pars but instead preferred war and meddling and favored a now declining terror-supporting Saudi Arabia.
