The moment I heard about the ‘pirate hijacking‘ of the oil supertanker, I thought: “yeah, right”. You tell me. The sophistication of this ‘piracy’ smells like a three-letter agency. JIT, as in “just in time” to (re)turn the world’s attention away from everything else.
Anyway, you saw it here first, this could be another false-op to accomplish several things, jack up seriously sagging oil prices, increase the bogus war on terror, distract the populace from the assinine bailout (yes, I am suggesting that US operatives are actually behind this) and escalate the tightening grip of the world’s elite on a critical resource (just imagine where this will take international law and protectionism if you need a hint).
For the record, the pirate attacks have been on the increase for quite some time. And there was always a great fear that it was just a matter of time before pirates successfully boarded and took control of a supertanker. I’ve read about these for years. But despite this past evidence, this story is just a bit too pat and convenient for me to simply accept at face value. Suddenly, it’s ‘pirate news’ on the headlines, whereas all the news sources are now jumping on board (or following orders), reporting stories and encounters.
But that is how it works in case you didn’t realize this. It’s a food fight to see who can escalate the fears and buying response of the public and advertisers. But it doesn’t make the events bigger, it just seems that way because everybody is piling on board.
For now, I’m opting out of believing this story to be what is claimed. I could be wrong, we’ll see.
