Who benefits from an attack on Saudi Arabia, and the world’s largest oil facility?

Reports of an attempted suicide attack on the Saudi Arabian oil manufacturing facility of Abquaiq is the most ominous news in recent months, and a portent of calamities to come. It was the first attack on an oil facility in Saudi Arabia.

Mainstream coverage and official reports have offered conflicting details on the alleged car bombing and how it was thwarted. Most, if not all, the corporate news media blame al-Qaeda, with many accounts linking the attack to the "sectarian violence" in Iraq.

Given exhaustive history, official documentation and extensive (purposely ignored) independent reporting and analysis that al-Qaeda was a creation of the CIA and that Osama bin Laden, Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi, etc., continue to function as military-intelligence assets for US and intelligence cutouts working on behalf of Anglo-American interests, Washington’s involvement and motives for further destabilizing the Middle East, including any activities in Saudi Arabia, must be seriously considered.

The truth about this latest attack, and whether it was a “manufactured” event (staged by US, Saudi, or US-Saudi operatives for political purposes), or a “real” terror attack (blowback from the US occupation) is less important than the fact that Saudi Arabia and Abquaiq have been targeted.

Abquaiq is the single largest oil processing facility in the world. The facility is also one of the most heavily secured pieces of real estate on the planet, reportedly impenetrable by conventional weaponry. Nevertheless, without Abquaiq, what amounts to 10 percent to 11 percent of the world oil production would be knocked out in one blow.

Mike Ruppert and the From The Wilderness team have long predicted that Saudi Arabia is the most important, and perhaps the first, target of the next phase of the Anglo-American oil conquest. Saudi Arabia has the world’s largest reserves and an unstable regime. Saudi Arabia is deeply connected with the United States, politically and economically, from critical Wall Street ties to intelligence operations. Saudi Arabia is the prize, and it is ripe.

The Bush administration’s criminal oil conquest is failing, move by move. The administration used 9/11 to launch its “war on terrorism.” The US took Afghanistan, but the promised Central Asian oil and gas bonanza is largely a bust. The US then took Iraq, but the Bush administration has not only failed to get Iraqi oil up and running, it has gotten the US into a quagmire and started a civil war. The Bush administration has continued to try to destabilize and seize Venezuela, but the Hugo Chavez government has been adept at blocking these efforts. Hurricanes Katrina and Rita dealt serious blows to America’s Gulf energy infrastructure. The US is saber-rattling at Iran, but the US would be unable to get away with an Iranian conquest without also sparking war with Russia, China and other nations with Iranian interests -- a world war and nuclear holocaust.

What is left for the Bush administration to attempt, with the world oil peak's arrival? Could this be the time for Saudi Arabia to fall, or be taken?
