Could it be because Qatar is the largest exporter of liquid natural gas in the world and Assad won’t let them build a natural gas pipeline through Syria? It has been common knowledge that Qatar has desperately wanted to construct a natural gas pipeline that will enable it to get natural gas to Europe for a very long time. In the video below Ken O’Keefe goes one step further and tells iranian Press TV that Israel wants to expand into Syria with a goal of creating a greater Isreal, and by knocking out the Syrian regime it will gain a de-facto rule over Syria . I got to say you will never hear anything like this in our bought and paid for media cheering for more debt and death.
The following is an excerpt from an article from 2009 Qatar has proposed a gas pipeline from the Gulf to Turkey in a sign the emirate is considering a further expansion of exports from the world’s biggest gas field after it finishes an ambitious programme to more than double its capacity to produce liquefied natural gas (LNG), click on the link to read the article http://www.theguardian.com/environment/earth-insight/2013/aug/30/syria-chemical-attack-war-intervention-oil-gas-energy-pipelines
In 2009 the same year former French foreign minister Dumas alleges the British began planning operations in Syria Assadrefused to sign a proposed agreement with Qatar that would run a pipeline from the latter’s North field , contiguous with Iran’s South Pars field, through Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria and on to Turkey, with a view to supply European markets albeit crucially bypassing Russia.
Instead, the following year, Assad pursued negotiations for an alternative $10 billion pipeline plan with Iran , across Iraq to Syria, that would also potentially allow Iran to supply gas to Europe from its South Pars field shared with Qatar.
The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the project was signed in July 2012 just as Syria’s civil war was spreading to Damascus and Aleppo and earlier this year Iraq signed a framework agreement for construction of the gas pipelines .
No wonder Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan, in a failed attempt to bribe Russia to switch sides, told President Vladmir Putin that “whatever regime comes after” Assad, it will be”completely” in Saudi Arabia’s hands and will “not sign any agreement allowing any Gulf country to transport its gas across Syria to Europe and compete with Russian gas exports”, according to diplomatic sources.
It was an agreement to run a natural gas pipeline across Turkey into Austria, bypassing Russia again with Qatar in the mix as a supplier to a feeder pipeline via the proposed Arab pipeline from Libya to Egypt to Nabucco (is the picture getting clearer?).
Again, yes, as long as the President determines that Iran or Hezbollah has a (mere) a connection to the use of WMD in the Syrian civil war, and the use of force against Iran or Hezbollah would prevent or deter the use or proliferation of WMD within, or to and from, Syria, or protect the U.S.
