Now that the shale oil industry in the US is facing almost total bankruptcy, there could be a new “war for oil” in the future. With Trump pointing again to Venezuela, this war may be closer than we think. Venezuela, the country with the biggest proven oil reserves in the world, reappeared on the list of priorities of the Trump Administration, as shown by the designation of high Venezuelan officials, including President Nicolás Maduro, as drug traffickers and the deployment of Navy destroyers, warships, planes and helicopters in a so-called “anti-narcotic effort”. This is equivalent to a de facto blockade of Venezuelan exports, including oil.
There are splits within any political organization; and, apparently, the false-flag operation against the Skripals was done by a ring that included not only representatives of UK billionaires, but also representatives of Democratic Party U.S. billionaires who are competing for power against Republican Party U.S. billionaires. This is a power-struggle within the U.S.-UK elite. Though that entire elite want to conquer Russia, they disagree on how to do it. The Trumpians want to conquer China and Iran first, but all the others are simply obsessed against Russia. The Skripals got trapped by the Russia-obsessed billionaires.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the Skripal poisoning claiming that the United Kingdom was never able to prove a “Russian trace” and did not provide detailed evidence of Russia’s involvement.
British police and investigations from the intelligence services have produced hard forensic evidence which was sufficient to charge two Russian nationals, identified as officers of the Russian Military Intelligence, GRU, for the attack on the Skripals.
