Venezuela en peligro, ¿saben por qué?
suministrarían petróleo y gas a Ucrania para facilitar que ese país sea fagocitado por la OTAN y la Unión Europea han quedado reducidas a eso: a meras bravuconadas carentes de sustancia y sin ningún efecto práctico que no sea la tentativa de engañar a los ingenuos. Desgraciadamente para Washington, el petróleo y el gas se encuentran cada vez con más frecuencia en países que no están dispuestos a ponerse de rodillas ante los mandatos de la Casa Blanca. Por lo tanto, sus palancas económicas para operar en Ucrania son sumamente débiles.
According to that estimate, you would get about 13,700 million barrels of oil. However, a recent report states that the amount shall not exceed 600 million barrels , ie , an amount 96 % lower than expected and, as noted by the trade publication Business Insider, equivalent to the total oil reserves of Bolivia .
This erroneous estimate of 2011 was ranked as the hope for reducing the country's need to import oil from abroad, according to The Los Angeles Times. And the amount reported is now insignificant when you consider that only could meet the energy needs in the U.S. corresponding to 33 days . "
From the above four initial conclusions: a) the energy dependence of the United States will remain very high, and perhaps increasing function of the evolution of domestic demand , and this will reinforce the militaristic tendencies of the empire to try to ensure obtaining oil needs by any means.
Do not forget that military interventions of the United States in third countries had cause as the oil and the alleged threats to " national security " posed by "hostile " governments (actually worthy governments unwilling to sacrifice national self-determination ) ; b ) plans to destroy OPEC from oil self-sufficiency will be archived for a long time , perhaps permanently , which is a harsh setback for U.S. foreign policy . c) Given the above the White House redouble their seditious and destituyente offensive Bolivarian Venezuela , enhancing its logistical, financial , organizational and media to their pawns on the ground support, which are presented as a "peaceful opposition" when in fact are mercenaries of the empire with the mission of breaking the constitutional order and bring down the Bolivarian government. Significant fact : the several hundred hooligans arrested by the authorities just students constitute 20 % and a similar proportion is formed by foreigners, some of whom do not speak Castilian . In light of the news published by Los Angeles Times is expected to increase the destabilizing pressure orchestrated by Washington. d ) the bravado of Obama and Kerry in the sense thatwould supply oil and gas to Ukraine to enable the country to be swallowed up by NATO and the European Union have been reduced to this : a mere bravado devoid of substance and no practical effect other than an attempt to deceive the naive. Unfortunately for Washington, oil and gas are increasingly often in countries that are not willing to kneel before the mandates of the White House . Therefore, economic levers to operate in Ukraine are extremely weak .
