The Greater Middle East Project
The following is a video interview script
At the time of the Iraq War in 2003, there appeared a project called the “Greater Middle East".
It was a plan of redrawing of the Old World regime's map. This redrawing of the map of the Middle East is part of a strategy to put US military boots on the ground in control of all the major oil and now the natural gas of the Middle East. The purpose was to control the economies of China and the European Union and to directly be able to blackmail those countries.
As Henry Kissinger said back in the 1970s: ” If you control the oil, you control entire nations or groups of nations.”
Dick Cheney, before he was a Vice President, in 1999 gave a very interesting speech to the institute of Petroleum in London. He outlined the perspective for the next twenty years of how much oil the world will need, how much decline there will be from old oil fields and how many new ones will have to be discovered. And there he said: "One place in the world with the largest reserves of oil is under control of the Middle East nations - Kuwait, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran. The problem is that those oil reserves are controlled by the governments". In other words, he said that we, the United States, have to take away the control over that oil from the governments and put it into private companies hands like BP, Shell and others.
When Cheney became Vice President under George W. Bush, the first thing he was put in charge of was the the Energy Task Force. Under his control, the task force began looking at oil maps of the Middle East in great detail before the Iraq invasion.
So the idea is to control that oil and, because of the growing importance of natural gas for the EU, to control the gas.
Therefore, this is what the Greater Middle East project is all about. It is a plan for redrawing the map, creating a unified Kurdistan as a geopolitical pivot that will allow Washington to control all the surrounding countries and destabilize Turkey, Iran, Iraq, and Syria, which play a very crucial role in the whole project.
