An important blurb on how it is the USAID umbrella serves the oil industry:

International Business Times: ‘Conspiracy theorists right’ that foreign intervention in civil wars driven by ‘thirst for oil’

“According to the study by the universities of Warwick, Portsmouth and Essex, a “thirst for oil” is the main motivation for foreign intervention over any historical, geographical or ethnic ties.

“The study suggests oil was the main reason for military intervention in the Libyan civil war – which the UK was involved in – as well as one of the main motivations for the current campaign against the Islamic State (Isis).

“The research examined every country which has had a civil war between 1945 and 1999. The study found out of the 69 civil wars which occurred after World War II, around 33% saw third party intervention either by another country or outside organisation. “Outsiders are much more motivated to join a fight if they have a vested financial interest” – Dr Petros Sekeris, University of Portsmouth

“Dr Petros Sekeris, from the University of Portsmouth, said: “We found clear evidence that countries with potential for oil production are more likely to be targeted by foreign intervention if civil wars erupt”

And at the Center for Strategic Affairs & International Study (CSIS) ‘The Launch of the Project on U.S. Leadership in Development

“Dr. Condoleezza Rice and General James L. Jones spoke about the impact of economic development on national security at the launch of the Project on U.S. Leadership in Development, a CSIS-Chevron partnership. Dr. John Hamre, CSIS president and CEO, moderated the discussion. CSIS trustee and former USAID administrator Henrietta Fore and Chevron vice president Stephen W. Green introduced the project…

Dr. Rice, former secretary of state under President George W. Bush, pointed to the Arab Spring as a sign that democracy is not only a Western phenomenon. When asked how best to justify development spending to Congress, Dr. Rice said that although we have a moral obligation to global development, there is also a practical argument that it improves U.S. security. “How many times do we have to learn that ungoverned territor[ies]…are a problem for us?” she asked. 

Development can help avoid the next Afghanistan or the next Somalia, she said, by building responsible sovereigns who can provide for their people. In doing so, the public and private sectors have complimentary, overlapping roles, Dr. Rice argued, with governments taking responsibility for creating the environment for trade, job creation, and foreign investment” [never mind Rice’s egregious lies when presenting a program that is a continuation of policies creating havoc around the world]

A former USAID administrator brought into a Chevron ‘leadership’ project (as well noting Condolezza Rice and James Jones are both are past Chevron board director personalities, not only one time Bush & Obama ‘National Security Advisors’) points directly at geo-political engineering of events on behalf of oil companies profits in relation to putting the cost off on the American taxpayer, per rogue CIA officer Phillip Agee’s revelations:

“One may wonder why the CIA would be needed in these programs. There were several reasons. One reason from the beginning was the CIA’s long experience and huge stable of agents and contacts in the civil societies of countries around the world. By joining with the CIA, NED and [US]AID would come on board an on-going complex of operations whose funding they could take over while leaving the secret day-to-day direction on the ground to CIA officers. In addition someone had to monitor and report the effectiveness of the local recipients’ activities. NED would not have people in the field to do this, nor would their core foundations in normal conditions. And since NED money was ostensibly private, only the CIA had the people and techniques to carry out discreet control in order to avoid compromising the civil society recipients, especially if they were in opposition to their governments. Finally, the CIA had ample funds of its own to pass quietly when conditions required”


And here you have the Obama administration’s Assistant Secretary of State brags about spending 5 Billion taxpayer dollars through these ‘democracy fronts’ developing “civil society” when reporting to Chevron:

And Joe Biden’s kid positioned to help lick up the spoils:

“…Ukraine’s largest private gas producer .. He’s [Biden] taking charge of the company’s legal unit”

Not to mention involvement by…

“Devon Archer, who works with Hunter Biden at Rosemont Seneca partners, which is half owned by Rosemont Capital, a private equity firm founded by Archer and Christopher Heinz”

…Christopher Heinz? Oh, that’s John Kerry’s step-kid.

And ‘Chevron Ukraine‘ .. sort of puts it all into perspective, you think?

“Chevron is pleased with the award of a tender which provides the right to conclude a Production Sharing Agreement for the Oleska area with the State of Ukraine. The Oleska area covers approximately 1.6 million acres. We now look forward to working together with the Ukrainian Government, local authorities, and our partner in relation to this opportunity”

If Chevron is forced out of Ukraine, Putin will be blamed, but for what? Acting on his known determination NATO will not march its borders to the edge of the Russian heartland? Too bad that sucks for Chevron, Rice, Jones, Biden and Kerry, but I suspect they’d just stepped into a mire of a 3rd world country whose resources they will not easily rip off…

…not that the Pentagon could grasp that:

And it is the American taxpayer picks up the $5 billion investment in Ukrainian ‘democracy’ and much, much more, before this episode of the ‘New Great Game‘ is played out:

“President Obama denied … that it’s a piece on “some Cold War chessboard.” But the best hope for Ukraine is that it will get special treatment precisely because it is a valued pawn in a new version of the Great Game, the 19th century struggle for influence between Russia and Britain”

Consider that bit of old news and the fact Obama is an invertebrate liar…
