The complex array of forces fighting over this oil prize makes the news coming from the region confusing. So, it might be a good time to try to identify the key players and their agendas before going further into the latest developments in the war.
The other point that needs to be repeated here is that big oil companies and their shareholders are deeply involved in this conflict. The big oil companies duking it out over the region are BP (British Rothschilds), Exxon Mobil (Rockefeller), Gazprom (Rothschild plus Russian oligarchs) and the Saudi/Bush crime syndicate.
We can now see why it is not unreasonable to say that World War 3 has started in the Middle East.
