War on Syria then on to Iran

The Syrian government are being framed by the US and NATO with the chemical weapons story to give an excuse for war.  There is no definitive evidence to suggest that Assad's Syrian army have used chemical weapons but even so the news channels loop John Kerry spouting his mouth off about the "moral obscenity" of the "undeniable" use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government.   There is going to be a war, the UN inspectors are conducting a meaningless investigation because it doesn't matter what they conclude, the war will escalate anyway and the US and UK are going in, it's already been decided.  Sound familiar? Iraq? Libya?  
Iran and Syria have a mutual defence agreement which is exactly why the whole Syria situation is happening, it's to draw Iran into a war.  Petrodollar warfare is what it's all about.  In September 2000 Saddam Hussein announced a switch to the euro as Iraq’s oil export currency, the Iraq war began March 2003; Baghdad fell in April; by June Iraq was now selling oil in dollars again.  
New York's NYMEX and London's IPE oil exchanges dominate international trade in oil and primarily exchange in dollars.  The Iranian Oil Borse (IOB) officially opened as an oil commodity exchange in Feb 2008.  During 2007 Iran asked its petroleum customers to pay in non US dollar currencies. By December 2007, Iran reported to have converted all of its oil export payments to non-dollar currencies, primarily the euro and Iranian rial and a basket of other major (non-US) currencies.  Iran is the third largest oil producer in the world so this is a big deal and a big threat to US financial interests due to reduced demand for the dollar.  Previous attempts to get at Iran haven't gained enough momentum such as the claims they are harbouring nuclear weapons and the insanely heavy trade sanctions which they partly avoid by using alternative trade agreements with certain countries.  So plan B is to start war next door to Iran and drag them in.
The UN investigators have found that the Syrian rebels are more likely to have used sarin nerve gas, the same rebels that are backed, funded and armed by the US.  The news channels however will report how our politicians are squarely blaming chemical weapon attacks on Assad's Syrian army.  Tony Blair the middle east peace envoy is now calling for military strikes against Syria, yes that's right I said 'peace' envoy, the same guy who helped bring 'peace' to Iraq when he was PM.  This crossing a red line that we keep hearing about from Obama doesn't really matter, it's just a marker to refer back to when larger scale intervention is being justified.  William Hague has said military response to the use of chemical weapons in Syria is possible without the unanimous consent of the UN Security Council.  Meanwhile Russia warns of catastrophic consequences of military intervention in Syria.
This war was planned some time ago and all roads lead to Tehran..... remember though Russia and China are watching.......

And finally, maybe we should also listen to president Assad's side of the story ,that's only fair, right?
