Kunstler: A View from the Brink

Public Policy

Welcome to the world where things don’t add up. For instance, some people did some things to the Saudi Arabian oil refinery at Abqaiq over the weekend. Like, sent over a salvo of cruise missiles and armed drone aircraft to blow it up. They did a pretty good job of disabling the works. It is Saudi Arabia’s largest oil processing facility, and for now, perhaps months, a fair amount of the world’s oil supply will be cut off. President Trump said “[we] are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!” Exclamation mark his.

How many times the past few years has our government declared that “we have the finest intelligence services in the world.” Very well, then, why are we waiting for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to tell us who fired all that stuff into Abqaiq? Whoever did it, it was unquestionably an act of war. And, of course, what are we going to do about it? (And what will some people do about it?)

Let’s face it: the USA has had a hard-on for Iran for forty years, ever since they overthrew their shah, invaded the US embassy in Tehran, and took fifty-two American diplomats and staff hostage for 444 days. On the other hand, the Arabians and Iranians have had a mutual hard-on for centuries, long before the Saud family was in charge of things, and back when Iran was known as Persia, a land of genies, fragrant spices, and a glorious antiquity (while Arabia was a wasteland of sand populated by nomads and their camels).

The beef was formerly just about which brand of Islam would prevail, Sunni or Shia. Lately (the past fifty years) it has been more about the politics of oil and hegemony over the Middle East. Since the US invaded Iraq and busted up the joint, the threat has existed that Iran would take over Iraq, with its majority Shia population, especially the oil-rich Basra region at the head of the Persian Gulf. The presence of Israel greatly complicates things, since Iran has a hard-on for that nation, too, and for Jews especially, often expressed in the most belligerent and opprobrious terms, such as “wiping Israel off the map.” No ambiguity there. The catch being that Israel has the capability of turning Iran into an ashtray.

The world has been waiting for a major war in the Middle east for decades, and it might have one by close of business today. Or perhaps some people will do nothing. The Iran-backed Houthi rebels of Yemen supposedly claimed responsibility for the attack. That’s rich. As if that rag-tag outfit has a whole bunch of million-dollar missiles and the knowledge and capacity to launch them successfully, not to mention the satellite guidance mojo. A correspondent suggests that the missiles were fired from a pro-Iranian military base in Iraq, with the Houthis brought in on flying carpets to push the launch buttons.

President Trump is trumpeting America’s “energy independence,” meaning whatever happens over there won’t affect us. Well, none of that is true. We still import millions of barrels of oil a day, though much less from Saudi Arabia than before 2008. The shale oil “miracle” is hitting the skids these days. Shale oil production has gone flat, the rig-count is down, companies are going bankrupt, and financing for the debt-dependent operations is dwindling since the producers have demonstrated that they can’t make a profit at it. They’re trapped in the quandary of diminishing returns, frontloading production, while failing to overcome steep decline curves in wells that only produce for a couple of years.

It’s also the case that shale oil is ultra-light crude, containing little heavier distillates such as diesel and aviation fuel (basically kerosene). Alas, American refineries were all built before shale oil came along. They were designed to crack heavier oil and can’t handle the lighter shale. The “majors” don’t want to invest their remaining capital in new refineries, and the many smaller companies don’t have the ability. So, this makes necessary a high volume of oil swapping around the world. Without diesel and aviation fuel, US trucking and commercial aviation has a big problem, meaning the US economy has a big problem.

With the new crisis in the Middle East, benchmark West Texas Intermediate oil is up from around $55-a-barrel to just over $60 at the market open (European Brent crude is just above $70). That’s a pop, but not a spectacular one, considering that a whole lot more damage might ensue in the days ahead. China, Korea, and Japan stand to lose bigly if the players in the Middle East really go at it and bust up each other’s assets. If that happens, the world will never be the same. You can kiss the global economy goodbye for good. Let’s hope some people don’t do something.

    BoJo meets Juncker. They ate snails and cheese and that was all there was to it:

    BoJo is using the backstop as a pretext to sneak out without a deal, because he knows the EU can’t compromise the common market, just because the notorious “part-time Europeans” want to abandon the European club.

    Whatever. Since Macron gave clear signals to Russia that they can enter the European club, I’m comfortable with the prospect that Britain/England is going to be our adversary, if not enemy.

    The WW3 front on the western side of Eurasia will be in place. Leave it to the Chinese to open the Eastern front.

    And the Iranians the Middle East.

    JHK is spot on with his assessment of the situation. Amerika’s lies about being independent, exceptional, etc., will soon be exposed for all the world to see and the shock to the tax slaves will be the worst when the store shelves empty and then the stores close, not to mention the stock market casino implosion.

    Amerika make nothing useful to the serfs, not even diesel fuel. Its electronics come from Asia. Even the parts for its weapons come from all over the world.

    The coming financial/economic shocks are going to put Amerikans in the streets with pitchforks. The alternative is to become real slaves in the Amerikan Police State gulag.

    A few more effective attacks on KSA’s oily stuff will be the end of the problems in the ME as most countries will be struggling to survive the collapse of globalization. At least, that is how I see it. We shall see. Pass the popcorn, the show is getting interesting.

    The world is in post peak oil decades ago, the Saudi giant oil fields(now open to attacks) have pass their prime now hardly able to maintain output. There are giant oil fields to discover on planet Earth. The fracking, mining sands highly expensive, hard to get is not even oil. America is failed country,

  11. Theedrich on Mon, 16th Sep 2019 8:03 pm 

    Time for Yidland and Araby to wag the U.S. again.  Saudi Arabia is America’s favorite genocidist, having killed over 91,000 Yemenis in the past 4½ years, got a small bit of blowback due to a drone attack on Abqaiq, its biggest oil refinery, leaving damage which will not be repaired for a number of weeks.  Both Araby and its nemesis, Iran, are grotesquely corrupt and have little concern for human life, but the Sand Negroes of KSA have learned to bribe American politicians much more effectively than has Iran.  The Sunni Saudis are militarily incompetent in spite of countless $billions of American weapons, so they expect the U.S. to destroy Shiite Iran for them.  (Note also that we import ~10% of our oil from the Arabs, despite what is said about our being “energy independent.”)

    The drones which hit Abqaiq on Saturday, 2019 Sep 14 were apparently manufactured in Iran, but where they were actually fired from is unclear.  Although it is perhaps possible that they were shot from Persia across the Gulf, they could also (and perhaps more likely) have come from Shiite factions in Iraq, especially seeing that the oil installation was hit on the north-northwest side.  The Houthis in Iran claimed that they had sent the drones, but many see that as improbable, given the less advanced nature of the Houthi war system.

    The high precision of the strikes implies Shiite intelligence inside of the kingdom, something to be expected from the fact that eastern Saudi Arabia is populated mainly by Shiites.  Indeed, it is even possible that Shiite cells operating withing KSA itself were responsible for the attack.

    In any case, American propaganda is directed against Iran, Israel’s biggest enemy.  And the entire portrayal of the situation is described as though it were a legal case, with a fantasy called “international law” (as interpreted by U.S. shysters) being violated by the Persians.  No mention is made of the fact that it is the U.S. which has turned the entire region into a charnel house, with Syria being our most recent victim state.  “American interests” are claimed as giving our politicians the right to intervene in the region and to support the criminals who pay us the most.

    Of course, if the U.S. attacks Iran, Iran will respond by (among other actions) blowing up every oil installation and oilfield station in the Arabian peninsula, thereby ending “Saudi” Arabia and terminating its oil shipments to the rest of the planet.  It is doubtful whether the rest of the world will thank America for that.

  12. Terry on Mon, 16th Sep 2019 9:46 pm 

    Naturally, Kunt is always careful never to criticize his tribal, largely stollen, homeland of Israel.

    Say you are a West Bank Arab farmer who has been working your land with TLC for generations. One week ago, the Israeli military shows up with armed troops and bulldozers. You and your family are informed that your land is being “appropriated” by Israel for the building of a new Jew settlement. Consequently, you have 24 hours to decide whether you will live in one of two Jew administered concentration camps in Gaza or the West Bank. If you are not out in the specified 24 hours, you will be arrested, all of your personal property will be bulldozed along with your former home and barn, and the Jews will decide where you will live. Oh, you will receive NO compensation for your property and all moving expenses are your problem.

    This is the reality of life for millions of non-Jews in “democratic” Israel, which receives more US foreign aid than all other nations combined. This is the same country that, disguised as Egyptians, attacked and almost sunk a US Naval vessel, the USS Liberty, operating in international waters and in the process killed scores of US Naval personnel. This was done during the 1973 Arab-Israel war in a failed attempt to blame the sneak attack on the Egyptians. Very few are aware of the incident as the US and Israel nicely covered-up the attack.

    Despite all of these facts, the world turns a blind eye. Israel can do what it wants, when it wants, and where ever it wants.

  13. Terry on Mon, 16th Sep 2019 9:51 pm 

    Forgot to add the USS Liberty was an intelligence gathering ship and therefore had very little ability to defend herself.

    And then Brexit, that ticking time bomb under the western status quo:

    Luxemburgian poofter drama queen illustrating that the talks between Juncker and BoJo went nowhere, as expected. The EU won’t move and BoJo is using the backstop issue as a pretext for the “inevitability” for no-deal, his one and only real aim. Only the Remain opposition in London could perhaps sabotage Brexit, but Corbyn is also a Brexiteer, who quietly supports BoJo, all the while pretending he isn’t. And the public in the end of the day will support BoJo-Farage, if not for ending this never ending saga. EU, same story. Bye-bye post 1945-West. The Mother of all F* ups coming up.

    It were mostly protesters from the Anglo block who sabotaged BoJos press conference:

    “Protesters who forced Boris Johnson to axe his Brexit press conference were led by an opera singer from Canada”

    “Jo Swinson faces Brexit backlash as Lib Dem leader prepares to tell party Brexit is ‘like planning to burn your house down’ and rivals line up to warn her: ‘You’re playing with fire’”

    She will grow fat electorally over Brexit, but she won’t stop it.

    “Saudi Arabia declares Iran is behind attack on oil plant after ‘locked and loaded’ Trump blamed Tehran – as satellite pics reveal pin-point precision of drone strikes”

    Look at these holes! Don’t believe for a second that backward Houthis did this from 1000 km distance. The drones could have been launched from the other side of the fence. It has the smell of the Mossad all over it, in cooperation with the KSA government, who both want to sick the dumb 600 pound gorilla against Iran, a country whose army is now operating at Israel’s border and has KSA surrounded. A total war in the Gulf has the potential to unleash WW3.

    Moon of Alabama comment section:

    “Reading around the usual list of sites that offer a deeper look at events one gets the distinct opinion that the facts don-t fully fit the narrative. A few examples being: * One of the largest global facilities of this type has yet to show any 24 hr security video footage. * The target accuracy and consistency seems 1 or two generations in advance of rebel spec. to date. * The small or zero splash of impacts suggest tanks were conveniently empty. * Entire segments of whole upstream/downstream supply flows have been left intact, allowing for swift parallel recovery. Compare with Venezuela refinery explosions short weeks after Chavez switched supply from USA to China. * “Who Gains From This?”1. indicate USA Frack & Canada Shale plus AMARCO IPO increased value.”

    “It’s likely the Houthis carried out an attack of some sort that night and were led to believe was successful (beyond their dreams) and felt worthy to take credit…It’s also likely that advanced targeting software -and possibly on the ground back-up Special Forces & laser/panasonic toughbooks ensured that near identical entry points (angle and position) were achieved on a series of storage tanks – suggesting a high altitude synchronised release. None of the tanks exploded in a Venezuelan fireball suggests they may have been emptied and flushed just prior. That small Rus. Syrian airbases can routinely defend themselves from Drone attack, but producer of 5% of Global oil supply cannot whilst hosting some of USA’s Blue water fleet, says bad things about competency. My real supposition is that air defences were handed over to ‘Dick Cheney’ in the 24 hours before event for a ‘training exercise”

    Cloudflare is one of the last bastions of free speech, under lefties also known as “hate speech”. It is very sad that the admin of this site doesn’t seem to want to take the trouble to log in to his server dashboard and active a few presets, enforcing posters to post under a unique username/password combination. That doesn’t eliminate garbage under fake identities, but at least it stops identity theft and that would make a hell of a difference. If possible, you could also enforce that one IP-address can only post under a single identity. Please admin, invest an hour of your time to get this right.”

    “Saudi Arabia Says It Has “Material Evidence” Tying Iran To Aramco Attack” zero hedge

    “Saudi Arabia revealed yesterday that, contrary to its initial estimates, Aramco should be able to restore oil production to 100% capacity by the end of the month. And on Wednesday morning, the kingdom’s Defense Ministry said it was planning a press conference to present “material evidence” purportedly linking Tehran to the unprecedented attack on the Kingdom’s oil infrastructure. The country’s defense ministry will hold a news conference later in the day laying out new evidence. This follows reports from the US claiming that the roughly 20 missiles and drones used in the attack had been traced back to a ‘launch site’ in southern Iran…The Defense Ministry’s news conference will begin Wednesday at 10:30 am ET. The Saudi Defense Ministry said it will hold a news conference on Wednesday at 1430 GMT to present “material evidence and Iranian weapons proving the Iranian regime’s involvement in the terrorist attack.” Riyadh has already said preliminary results showed the attack did not come from Yemen. The Iranian leadership infamously threatened that if they couldn’t export crude oil, “no one would” shortly after Washington ended waivers for countries reliant on Iranian oil. The Iranian leadership has ruled out meeting with President Trump, arguing that this would only validate the administration’s strategy of maximum pressure.”
