Why did Obama choose a Friday afternoon to furtively launch a fourth simultaneous war, without even consulting first with Congress, and without giving any indication what vital national interests might be involved? Aaron Klein has a suggestion that might bear investigation:
An influential “crisis management organization” that boasts billionaire George Soros as a member of its executive board recently recommended the U.S. deploy a special advisory military team to Uganda to help with operations and run an intelligence platform.
The president-emeritus of that organization, the International Crisis Group, is the principal author of Responsibility to Protect, the military doctrine used by Obama to justify the U.S.-led NATO campaign in Libya.
Soros’ own Open Society Institute is one of only three nongovernmental funders of the Global Centre for Responsibility to Protect, a doctrine that has been cited many times by activists urging intervention in Uganda. …
Several of the doctrine’s main founders also sit on boards with Soros, who is a major proponent of the doctrine.
Soros himself maintains close ties to oil interests in Uganda. His organizations have been the leading efforts purportedly to facilitate more transparency in Uganda’s oil industry, which is being tightly controlled by the country’s leadership. …
Uganda’s Energy Ministry estimates the country has over 2 billion barrels of oil, with some estimates going as high as 6 billion barrels. Production is set to begin in 2015, delayed from 2013 in part because the country has not put in place a regulatory framework for the oil industry.
Ed Lasky comments:
Soros seems to have his hand in trying to guide the development of the oil and gas industry in Uganda. The Ugandan government would naturally be beholden to Soros if he could show he had enough influence with the White House to bring in American troops to take out a rebel group. Also, the defeat of the rebel group would make development of the energy industry that much more viable since operations would be much more secure.
Lasky notes that Obama has previously put the US government at the service of the Nazi collaborator and Shadow Government kingpin George Soros to help him export liquefied natural gas from Papua New Guinea.
Soros’s oil interests may explain Obama’s bizarre and pernicious energy policy, which has resulted in shutting down American drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. This has freed up off-shore rigs that can be deployed to Brazil, which is being paid with money looted from American taxpayers to develop its oil fields, in which Soros is heavily invested.
If the Occupy Wall Street hippies really don’t like military adventurism and crony capitalism, they can fight both by helping patriots drive Obama out of office.
