Putin’s Gas Attack

The real reason Syrian war is raging and the UK has it’s hands tied by the EU.  The UK has diverse gas supplies from it’s own resource, Norway and Russia.  This is a German/Turkish/ Eastern European problem not a British one.  

Is Russia Just in Syria for the Pipelines?

By Mitchell A. Orenstein and George Romer

Russia’s belligerence in Syria has renewed debates about Russian motives. James Nixey, head of the Russia and Eurasia Program at Chatham House, and Xenia Wickett, project director for the United States at Chatham House, probably put it best in their recent article: “Why, ‘logically’, would a country buckling under the strain of a crippled economy and which has itself been a recent victim of extremist terror, open up a second front of military operations far away from its traditional theatre of military engagement in the former Soviet space? And what else, other than ulterior motives to those officially stated, could explain Russia’s targeting of Syrian groupings other than ISIS strongholds?”

One answer is natural gas. Specifically, most of the foreign belligerents in the war in Syria are gas-exporting countries with interests in one of the two competing pipeline projects that seek to cross Syrian territory to deliver either Qatari or Iranian gas to Europe. In short, as Iran emerges from international sanctions and its massive gas reserves become available for export, Syria’s gas war is heating up.


In 1989, Qatar and Iran began to develop the South Pars/North Dome field, which is buried 3,000 meters below the floor of the Persian Gulf. With 51 trillion cubic meters of gas and 50 billion cubic meters of liquid condensates, it is the largest natural gas field in the world. Approximately one-third of its riches lie in Iranian waters and two-thirds in Qatari ones.

Since the discovery, Qatar has invested heavily in liquefied natural gas (LNG) plants and terminals that enable it to ship its gas around the world in tankers. Yet liquefaction and shipping increase total costs and, particularly as gas prices have slipped, Qatari gas has remained easily undercut in European markets by cheaper pipeline gas from Russia and elsewhere. And so, in 2009, Qatar proposed to build a pipeline to send its gas northwest via Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Syria to Turkey, an investment of billions of dollars up front that would reduce transportation costs over the long term. However, Syrian President Bashar al Assad refused to sign the plan; Russia, which did not want to see its position in European gas markets undermined, put him under intense pressure not to.

At the same time, Iran, sensing an opportunity, and lacking export infrastructure for its own massive gas reserves, proposed an alternative Iran-Iraq-Syria pipeline that would pump Iranian gas from the same field out via Syrian ports such as Latakia and under the Mediterranean. Moscow apparently blessed this project, possibly believing that Russia would have an easier time dealing with Iran (unlike Qatar, not home to a U.S. base) to control gas imports to Europe from Iran, the Caspian Sea region, and Central Asia. The announcement of the Iran-Iraq-Syria pipeline deal came in 2011. The parties signed the documents in July 2012. Construction was slated to be finished in 2016, but the Arab Spring and ensuing chaos in Syria interfered.


Since the start of the fighting, Iran has provided extensive support to the Assad government. By some accounts, it is more or less running the Syrian army, as well as supplying it with weapons and now even troops from its Revolutionary Guard and Quds forces. Tehran has numerous reasons for supporting Assad—Damascus has been a reliable ally and channel for sending arms to Hezbollah—and Syria’s status as a potential transit route for Iran’s vast natural gas reserves surely figures in.

Qatar, meanwhile, began working to oust the Assad regime by funding rebel groups to the tune of an estimated $3 billion between 2011 and 2013. It even offered a $50,000 reward to defectors from the Syrian regime and their families and hosts a base from which the CIA has trained Syrian rebels. Qatar’s relations with Syria had previously been cordial—that is, until Qatar’s Al-Jazeera played a vital role in supporting the Arab Spring revolts and gave a voice to the protests in Syria. Qatar also sought to isolate Assad diplomatically by handing Syria’s seat in the Arab League to the opposition. In doing so, Qatar endangered its previously close relations with Iran.

The Russian intervention adds a new layer. Russia would rather see the Iran–Iraq–Syria pipeline built or no pipeline at all, so that it can best control gas supplies to Europe, its main market. For Qatar, Syria represents an opportunity to transport its gas to market cheaply or block Iran from dominating pipeline exports from a jointly-owned field. The United States, meanwhile, supports the Qatari pipeline as a way to balance Iran and diversify Europe’s gas supplies away from Russia. And Turkey, likewise, believes that the Qatari pipeline would help it diversify its own gas supplies away from Russian energy and further its ambitions to be a gas transit hub between Asia and Europe. Russian state media has, in recent days, reminded Turkey that it is “unlikely to manage without Russian gas” and that Turkey’s other major supplier, Iran, is aligned with Russia in Syria.

In other words, any political settlement of the Syria crisis must also reconcile competing gas interests. One way to do this would be to enable both pipelines to be built, so that Qatari and Iranian gas can be brought to market cheaply. That would resolve at least one driver of the conflict. In fact, it would serve the interests of all actors reasonably well, except for Russia.

Indeed, the dual pipelines would be a disaster for the Kremlin. Russia has a vital interest in controlling gas supplies to European Union, where Gazprom sells 80 percent of its gas. The European Union has succeeded in diversifying supplies in recent years (in part through LNG imports) and seeks to develop additional pipelines from Central Asia and the Middle East to further reduce its reliance on Russian gas. New pipelines from Qatar and Iran could take away market share from Russia, but more importantly reduce prices below what the Russian state budget needs to survive.

Russia has shown a willingness to go to war over such issues before. It fought the war in Georgia to frustrate Western plans to export gas from the Caspian Sea region to the West via Azerbaijan and Georgia to Turkey. It went to war in Ukraine in order to control a vital transit state between Russia and Europe. And it is reasonable to expect that Russia will go down fighting to prevent a Qatari pipeline from crossing Syria on its way to Europe and to make Iranian exports reliant on Russian support. It also explains why Russia has chosen to target Qatari- and Saudi-funded rebel groups in Syria in its bombing campaign, and why Russia’s involvement has only bolstered the Gulf States’ resolve.

When such energy considerations are taken into account, it seems clear that surrendering Syria to Iranian and Russian interests, as some have recommended in recent weeks, would be a disaster. But negotiating a solution will be very difficult with Russia when U.S. and Russian interests are so sharply opposed. The United States must stand firm and use the crisis to begin to mend relations with Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and other traditional allies in the Middle East, with which ties have been frayed by the tumult of the Arab Spring. Turkey, at the crossroads of Asia and Europe, stands the best chance of playing an honest broker role in gas transit and ensuring, with U.S. support, that all gas suppliers in the Middle East have the ability to freely export and transport their valuable commodity.



We need to reform our system and take back control. #SixStarMovement

Graham Moore PPC Erith & Thamesmead Picture

Graham Moore:

I fully support the English Democrats manifesto which can be found here. Our nation needs proper Democratic representation.

Also in my “opinion” in order to progress and create value and wealth we need six things.  The Bradbury Pound paid for WW1, in my opinion we should pay for English University Tuition fees and NHS using “The Bradbury Pound”.  #MakeEnglandGreatAgain

Value is about Location, Location, Location and England will be the best Location for family life in the world with these 6 steps. #SixStarMovement

  1. It would be better for England if our politicians weren’t career politicians with no business skills, no job creation skills, no life experience.   It would be better if those who stand for election had work and life experience of those you seek to represent.  The primary goal of any politicians should be the interests of the People, not a party, not self interest.  We should adopt a system where politicians get paid not by salary but on results and the quality of life of the people improving.  If they fail us, we don’t pay them the bonuses.  Lets see how many would step up to the plate, things would soon change for the better.
  2. Proportional representation, preferably MMP (Mixed Member Proportional).
    • It is the fairest system in the world, you win by votes not by area.
  3. The monetary system that exists today is a fraud on the people, money creation must be created by the government and the people not private banks. The fractional reserve system (current banking system) is a major fraud on the working people of this Country.
    • www.positivemoney.org
    • Value and Wealth are distinct from each other.
      • Value is our sweat, blood and tears. It is a fair society for all, infrastructure, industry, education, health system (NHS), care for the elderly, care for disabled, care for veterans.
      • Wealth is creating an environment for jobs, environmental sustainability, opportunity
      • Policing by consent means politics stays out of policing
  4. Combined with the new money creation we need a version of the Bradbury pound.  I have called it Public Sector Pound (PSP). It has nothing to do with the outside world, it is English money for those who live and work in England.  The Currency and Notes Act 1914.
  5. A tax system that works and is proven to work that is proportional and progressive to a max of 17% or optional flat rate.  Simplified English tax system, whereas our current system is 11500 pages and rising or we use the Land Value Tax (LVT) that Winston Churchill proposed in his 1909 “Peoples Budget” which was defeated by the land owners.  Land value tax would be the only tax payable, no income tax, no VAT, no Council tax, we guarantee.    Just a single simple payment.
  6. A bill of rights for the English (an English Constitution) and a completely independent English Parliament.
    • The protection of children; abuse of children must be the “ultimate crime”.
    • An allegiance to England no matter what a persons colour, religion, atheism or sexuality.
    • Politics cannot be part of any religion and religion can play no part in politics.
    • Justice cannot be part of any religion and must be struck out.
    • War and violence must not be encouraged by “any” religion.
    • No religion may subvert or attempt to subvert human rights, women’s rights, children’s rights and animal rights.
    • No form of political correctness should subvert free speech.
    • No form of political or religious subversion may take place in educational establishments (pre, infants, primary, secondary, college, training or University).

The English have invented a world beating global free energy medium – Graphene – via Manchester University.  Clean cheap energy, no need for nuclear, no need for fossil fuels, no fracking, no wind turbines, check this out and you will be amazed.  Please tell your friends to join the only party that truly cares about the environment.  Free Thinkers.




These things can be achieved, working people can be elevated into positions where they can make a difference.

Why Cultural Marxism or Multiculturalism is a Trojan horse:

Why Cultural Marxism or Multiculturalism is a Trojan horse: It is very simple really, if you allow other cultures to co-exist within your Country they bring their “cultural conflicts” with them. Whereas if the Country and it’s own culture is adopted this mostly negates cultural conflicts. It is why England was the place to be during 400 years of non-stop wars in Europe. We as the English accept migrants on the condition they live in peace and promote our Culture not the warring culture they left behind. The English do not care what colour, race, religion or sexuality you are, we only seek our green and fair land be respected and we live together as English, English law, English Identity, one Country, one Culture.

Sikhs, Hindu, Jews, Buddhists, Muslims, Christians on the whole adapted to our culture, practicing Sikhs (about 10%) carry a dagger, worn permanently, not in self defence but to protect others. It is never taken off even in the shower or bed. This dagger has rarely been used for anything other than ceremonial and religious doctrine.

Sikhs, Hindu, Jews, Buddhists, Christians separate their religion from politics and law. Muslims, have integrated the least in terms of culture with the west, they do not separate religion from politics, law, or education. This is a major problem for any Country that secularism including atheist or agnostic is the basis of their culture and one that Mustafa Kemal Atatürk the first President of Turkey took very seriously. Atatürk gave women the right to vote and become MPs decades before the British and the Americans, he introduced compulsory free education for children, he educated women, he separated religion from politics and law. He also encouraged the population to stop dressing like 2000-year-old Arabs, dress and wear western cloths. Atatürk took Turkey from a third world Islamic Country and produced modern Turkey, Engineers, Universities, and above all stability.

Christians do not wear the robes and dress that Jesus or Moses wore 2000 years ago. Russians do not wear Viking (yes most Russians are descendants of Vikings) clothing; the English do not wear Saxon clothing. We all moved on!





Syria: The Real reason for Assad’s removal.

We are being hoodwinked into a war with Russia, here is why; Russia was blackmailing western Europe with Gas supplies, they turned off the Gas to Ukraine and we in the west have a massive issue, Energy Security.  The USA and Europe wanted economic sanctions on Russia, we switched off their access to global banking which included the visa system so that Russia’s internal banking system did not work.
Qatar and Iran have the largest Gas fields in the world bar none, Qatar own 2/3 and Iran 1/3. (Trillions and Trillions of cubic ft 10% of world reserve).
Problem: Qatar pipeline needs to go through Syria, Assad said NO as he is an ally of Russia.  Iran, is going through Pakistan and extended to India, although the USA tried to stop it (have stopped it).
The UK, USA, Europe then decided to get rid of Assad so the pipeline would go ahead and would mean competition (cheaper gas and energy security) and the product would be traded (bought and sold) in $ dollars therefore supporting the USA.
To get rid of Assad, they needed an insurgency, a force, which of course is ISIS, with ISIS and a mercenary army came a cancerous strategy and ideology via Saudi Arabia.
Putin, has two reasons to get involved 1.  A strategic sole supplier of Gas to Europe 2. Chechnya, Islamic and dangerous to Putin.  It is estimated that 3000 Chechnians are fighting for ISIS with up to date weapons supplied by UK, USA, EU and Turkey.
Then, Turkey shot down Russian military jet, Russia shuts off Gas it supplies to Turkey, do you see how this “Gas” is a major issue (20% of Turkeys Gas comes from Russia).
Solution: Sit down with Putin, do deal, stop a war, it will happen and China + Russia are allies.  By the way, China + Russia had the contract for the Iran-Pakistan-Indian pipeline.

New wave of Polish workers on the way to Britain as 250,000 think of quitting homeland

FEARS of a fresh wave of Polish migrants heading to the UK were raised by government research showing 250,000 were thinking of quitting their homeland for a better life over here.
