Yeah, what exactly does fracking have to do with the Ukraine?

We’ve been here before people. Here’s how it works in two easy steps.

  1. The U.S. makes billion dollar loans to countries knowing those countries will never be able to repay the loans.
  2. The U.S. uses the loans as leverage to allow U.S. Corporations to privatize the countries resources. So U.S. oil & gas companies will own the Ukraine’s abundant supply of natural gas.

As Up with Steve Kornacki said, natural gas is central to what’s happening in the Ukraine but just not in the way he thinks it is.

U.S. oil companies have and are turning America into an extraction colony…

“For those who object, there is nowhere to go,” Pfeifer said. “The director of Natural Resources is God in this case. “

…so why not expand that to other countries?

    Fracking has a lot to do with it.
    “President Bashar al-Assad inked a secret deal that gives Russia the license to control natural gas resources in Syria, according to informed Middle Eastern security officials.”
    “Beside the prospect of its own gas field, Syria is also one of the most strategic locations for natural gas pipelines to flow to Europe.”
    This is all linked and is a continued power play for the natural gas resources. Read the full story below, it explains in much greater detail.

    This morning on FOW/faux some profracker was talkn’ bout we have a gas surplus and need to export it to those countries that wuld normally buy from Gazprom….yeah and we will be like Shangi High’s air pollution AND risk our drinking water to be polluted too! Is that worth some profits for the wealthy few? Is that worth budding in other country’s affairs at the expense of people’s livability on this planet?
