UK, August 8, (Pal Telegraph – By Peter Eyre) The people of Lebanon and Palestine have always been deeply suspicious of their cunning neighbour Israel and with just cause. When one looks at the vast open waters of Israel why would they decide to drill right on your border? Could it be a case that whilst they are bullying you they are syphoning off your natural resources?
This is what wars are really about! If we can recall back in the pre Iraq War era we learnt of a situation whereby the oil rigs on the Kuwaiti side of the border were using diagonal (slant) drilling techniques to steal the resources of Iraq….this act alone was instrumental in causing Iraq to attack Kuwait which then led to the Iraqi War’s. It is therefore important for the international community (United Nations) to monitor such activities to avoid conflict but as we have seen in the past they are likely to sit on there hands and allow conflict to happen. After all its in America’s best interest to keep the wars going!
