About article Syria War: Is It About The Last Gasp For The PetroDollar? My question is Rusia doesn,t want US to attack Syria, right? Why? So how the demise of Petrodolar without a war?

Also interesting article from Debka:
US Air Force will also target Syria’s air force, ballistic missiles and sections of its air defenses
Mr. O looks like will attack Syria whatever the result of the congress

From the articles it appears that Russia wants Syrian control over whatever pipeline passes through their land, and probably one of the reasons for their strong alliance with Syria. The Saudis also want to control this and would therefore prefer that Assad is overthrown thus breaking the Russian/Iran alliance and preventing them the opportunity to significantly weaken OPEC and in turn, the use of the petro-dollar which needs OPEC domination to work.

Russia needs the Assad regime as much as the US needs it destroyed. As stated, the US is on the verge of financial collapse and is therefore desperate - never a good spot to be in

I thought Obama and the globalists wanted our economy to collapse? None of this stuff seems to make much sense to me. If they really cared about saving the economy they would stop spending money like drunken sailors and balance our budget.

I'm with WV . . .it makes zero sense, but as I understand, it IS about the US need to prop up the collapsing PetroDollar. I don't know, maybe they're being directed to put on a good front, rather than allow the inevitable to happen? Maybe Obama, who is probably just human, wants to preserve at least SOME of his legacy? Who knows?

Either way, these prophetic events are all converging and there's nothing that can be done to shake it. God is in control.
