As long as Russia owns its own oil, the western oil cartels and the US empire’s monopoly over the price of oil is vulnerable, so they want to expand NATO into Ukraine as a first step towards colonising Russia
The conflict in Ukraine is not about national sovereignty. It’s about oil cartels establishing monopoly. Let me explain: right now Germany and Russia have already built the Nordstream2 pipeline. Germany only needs to initiate it, but it won’t. Why?
In order to understand Germany’s decision not to initiate Nordstream2 yet, we need to understand the current global capitalist order that we call “imperialism”. It is when large scale banks and massive cartels (or corporations) privately own much of the global capitalist economy.
The US empire’s economic hegemony is based on Western oil cartels having a collective monopoly over oil and its prices which determine the value of the US dollar. Anything that breaks this collective monopoly undermines the economic hegemony of the US empire. Moreover, economic aggression against Iran by US and allies is a living example of what the US can do to someone who denies the hegemony of “Petrodollar”.
But what does this have to do with Nordstream2?
If Germany sets up Nordstream2 pipeline, the western oil cartels based in US and Britain have no longer the collective monopolistic power to fix the price of oil worldwide.
If they don’t collectively control the price of oil worldwide, they can’t maintain/enhance the value of the US dollar. Furthermore, Germany and Russia breaking this monopoly could potentially undermine the value of the US dollar. This gives them a newfound leverage.
The US empire and the western oil cartels don’t want this new arrangement, where Germany and Russia have this new leverage, so they’re giving Germany an ultimatum: Either you stay in NATO with us by giving up Nordstream2 or you’re on Russia’s side and face dire consequences like Iran.
The US empire and western oil cartels are pushing for the war on Ukraine because they want to cancel Nordstream2 pipeline and force Russia to become reliant on Ukraine to transport its oil. This maintains western oil cartels monopoly over the price of oil.
Furthermore, as long as Russia owns its own oil, the western oil cartels and the US empire’s monopoly over the price of oil is potentially vulnerable because Russia has a lot of oil, so they want to expand NATO into Ukraine as a first step towards colonising Russia.
They want to privatise all of Russia’s natural resources including and especially oil in order to guarantee that western oil cartels based in US and UK maintain their monopoly over oil and control prices to maintain/ augment the value of the US dollar. They’ve to get rid of the Russian Federal Government, where much of the natural resources including oil are state owned assets that are used for economic stability. This means privatising State-owned assets and reducing Russia to its 1991 state.
If we look through the prism of Islam on this matter, as we should, we oppose this global capitalist order that we call “imperialism”. Lenin said: “Imperialism is the highest stage of capitalism”.
We wish to undermine the monopoly of western oil cartels that is the economic basis of US hegemony.
The reason why Ukraine is so important to oil cartels is that since oil from Russia to Europe is currently delivered through Ukraine, controlling Ukraine means controlling the land pipelines in Ukraine. All the oil that passes through can be taxed to match the global oil prices set by western oil cartels. As long as oil cartels don’t own oil in Russia, they can only control the amount of oil that Russia can deliver to the world and at what price, and this is the reason why this system is called “Petrodollar”.
It’s pretty simple that even a common man in any country can’t buy oil without and unless it is purchased with US dollar. This is the reason why the US dollar has any value in the first place. Countries that wish to purchase oil must convert their currency to US dollars to buy oil. This gives a ton of value to the US dollar.
In effect, controlling oil prices and the supply of oil is essential to strength and survival of the US dollar hegemony.
Similar is the case in many of Middle Eastern countries and African countries, where the US is spending billions of dollars to maintain the hegemony of “Petrodollar”, by creating proxies and fake enemies to enter any state and exploit the resources of any resourceful country.
In conclusion, it’s the duty of every free human to understand the oppression of US and western oil cartels and fight against it.
