Several theories alluding to a possible dismantling of the Arab and other strategic nations by the United States for energy gains in the wake of current events in the Middle East and Nothern Africa have added to speculations that the so-called revolution in Arab nations including Tunisia and Egypt are masterminded from American soil.
A theory developed by the Open Reserch and Discussion Center “Global Adventure” points out that in early or mid-2011 the U.S. might switch to the active phase of an energy war. The following are the possible stages of the energy war:
First, the U.S. might struck Saudi Arabia eliminating Arabian oil, closing the Persian Gulf and the Suez Canal for everyone. They could also provoke a Turkish-Kurdish war. This would cut off the southern oil and gas transit to the EU. The U.S. could also sponsor a new civil war in Algeria and Nigeria, organize a new revolution in Ukraine and a new Ukrainian-Russian “gas war.”
At the same time, the commodity exports from the Americas beyond the continents would be closed.
Global financial crisis could then take a form of global chaos. The Greater East from Algeria to Afghanistan, from Uzbekistan to Saudi Arabia and from Azerbaijan to Sudan would start blazing.
Pakistan would then unleashe a war with India.
As for the EU, the most powerful economic and energy crisis, as well as the mess in the Middle East would not only collapse the labor market and social system, but would result in social revolts, a new wave of terrorism, riots and rebellions, separatism, etc.
Latin America’s mere survival would totally be dependent on the United States.
So which currency would be in demand in all these countries? Obviously not disintegrating Europe’s euro. And also not Japanese yen as the country would be paralized by an increasingly deep depression.
That would be the U.S. dollar. After its sharp devaluation dollar would become absolutely stable and strong. The U.S. would remain the only power that has not only enough aircraft carriers and nuclear missiles, but also the power whose economy did not collapse and continued to grow.
The world energy market is highly vulnerable. One needs to close only three major crossroads to collapse the world energy market. And then China, India, as well as Europe and Japan will have to stand still.
The major transit plases would include Ukraine, the oil “road” to Europe, and Turkish Kurdistan, where all the major pipes are. Everyone knows what’s going on in Iraqi Kurdistan and how this is sponsored by the U.S. And the last place would be the Suez Canal with the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden on the way to the Arabian Sea.
Surprisingly, the pirate problem has recently emmerged in the Gulf of Aden. And now the area must be under the strickt control to protect the trade ships.
All these major transit places have problems nowadays. And combined with the economic crisis the social shock in Europe could possibly turn into a nightmare.
Europe could become a region of chaos – just the area of continuous street fighting. What goes around comes around. China and India will probably face a lot of difficulties because of these events.
The more obvious becomes the created tension between India and Pakistan, that was not there sometime before. The assasination of Benazir Bhutto could not have taken place previously. There could be no case with Musharraf’s dismissal. There could be no Mumbai attacks. All these events contributed to the development of Indo-Pakistani conflict.
All these events could be preparations for the energy war. This would be a totally new type of war!

As one can see, the fleets are located in all the key places. They block the Strait of Gibraltar, the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Aden – all the key European Transport Corridors.
