Supertanker Takeovers by "Pirates" has Insider Fingerprints

Could this happen without insider complicity, or is it a likely a ploy by oil interests to generate anxiety and get oil prices moving back up again?

We are seeing news stories about pirates taking supertankers.  This might appear to be a fairly plain and straightforward news story.  Nothing could be further from the truth.

It is a fact that there are not more than a few ports around the world where the oil could be off loaded and be of any value.  All of these ports are in very strict hands of the oil industry.  Iran itself is unable to even refine its own oil and is strangling at this moment under the very fact I am talking about.  The USA only has about 3 ports where such tankers can off load.  South America only has about 3 such ports as well. Europe only has 4 or 5 such ports.  These are "National Capital Assets" and are highly guarded and no ship may dock and unload cargo from the tanker that have been taken without permission of a major Nation State. No pirate anywhere on earth can get any value from Hijacking a Super Tanker.  Don't think for one moment that the nations would pay a ransom for the poor wretches that man such a ship.  They will not even pay health insurance on such persons or a decent wage.  They care not if such persons live or die.  These are contractors or "expendable persons."

What you are looking at is an INSIDE JOB by the world banking community who is trying to strike sufficient terror to keep us flat in a war and fully mortgaged into that war rather than repairing our economic house.  This is a terrorist attack by the financial elites and using the pawns they financed in the horn of Africa to take us to the belief that we must rush to war. 

It is quite impossible for the Somali Pirates to have even boarded the ship from their little "boats" without considerable warning. Such ships are rather like 100 foot high steel walls.  They have neither ladders nor boarding sites that could be taken without being entirely at risk.  Such a ship could have called in and been reached by helicopter or US or Allied war planes in minutes.  A US based F20 or F16 or such could have reached the site in a matter of less than 10 minutes from call.  In the time necessary to climb up the side of the ship, a war plane could have raked the pirates with 20mm cannon fire.  A US chopper could have been there based from the fleet assets in the region  in less than an hour.  Radar and Satellite contact with such a ship is never broken world wide.  This cannot be a "Pirate" attack.  To board a super tanker is nearly impossible even when unopposed.  If the crew had merely altered course or so much as fired small arms against the pirates, a boarding party would have little or no chance. This is why the US forces or others have not backed a rescue party.  Such a mission would have very high casualties. 

The real issue here is to look at who stands to benefit.  It is no accident that the Saudi's and others who have been suffering a short fall in the price of oil and are desperate to get that price up at any cost suddenly suffer a pirate attack which would drive up the price of oil by up to double.  Suffer the loss of one super tanker and cargo or two means nothing.  $40 Million in cargo and another $20 million in ship, means nothing against driving the net cost of oil up by $200 Billion or $500 Billion.  This is clearly an inside job.  This is an attempt of desperation to extract more money from the already broke western European and US Economies.   We are suffering Economic Terrorism by the world bankers.  The Saudi's etc. are absolutely broke financially. Look at their banks if you doubt this.  They too are having to do "Bail Outs" and "Stimulus Packages" on their economies.    China just had to cough up $585 Billion (their whole wad) to do such a stimulus.  Now they will have to spend it on OIL and not on their economy.  This is a war.  But the war is not against Al Quada  or such. It is against freedom and liberty.  It is to expand slavery over all mankind.  The world bankers are doing this.

This reminds me of the accounts I've heard of early Western bank robberies that were done with the complicity of bank presidents, who would get a piece of the action.  Hence, some of the famous bank robbers were able to go so long without getting "caught."
