War for Peace

I found these charts interesting


No doubt other differences between Syria and Rwanda are also effecting the hypocritical gash in our foreign policy. And Syria is not a huge oil producer ...


Oil production and development are managed by the Syrian Petroleum Company (SPC), an offshoot of the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources. Foreign oil companies have been offered a share of Syria's oil industry in an attempt to stem the country's production decline with formation of the Al-Furat Petroleum Company. This joint venture is 50 percent owned by SPC, 32 percent by Shell Oil and China's CNPC. China is also active in other parts of Syria through its Sinochem and Sinopec government oil companies.

In the first quarter of 2011, SPC produced 1,7385,626 barrels and 1,133,354 thousand cubic metres of natural gas. The company also drilled 49185 metres of hole. As well, SPC has announced that it is offering another Bid Round for three offshore blocks in the Mediterranean Sea with a closing date of October 5th, 2011. As well, the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources is inviting qualified companies to explore for and develop Syria's oil shale deposits.

While TPP slides in the back door. Syria involvement is already doing great harm to our Country and we haven't even gotten past the pre-war hype.

Labor unions are created when workers join together for legal protections.

Corporations are created when owners join together for legal protections.

Why is it possible to create a corporation in a few minutes for a couple dollars, but the right to organize a labor union is under attack in States across our Nation?

For those advocating cutting the social safety net to help deal with the deficit ...

It's what we call "progress"
