Searching for the Reasons Behind Western Antagonism (part I)

Searching for the Reasons Behind Western Antagonism
(part I)

With this background, the antagonism of the westerners in Baku towards the Armenians becomes self-explanatory. How on earth an ethnicity from the inferior “eastern” races dared to compete with the owners of the world? It is quite unambiguous that the sly and voracious Rothschilds and Nobels could not tolerate this at all.

In an article by Clifford Shack comparing the events of two world wars, the oil interests of the Caspian and the Suez route, we read, “In the 1880's, the French branch of the Rothschild family acquired interests in Russia's Baku oil fields in an effort to supply their refinery on the Adriatic with cheap Russian oil. In exchange for these interests they built a railroad linking Baku to the newly acquired Black Sea port of Batum. This opened up the Baku oil, a major world supply, to the world. It had previously been geographically locked in by the mountains of the Caucasus …With the success of the new railroad, the Rothschilds had more oil than they could actually sell. Overcoming their fear of competing with the giant Standard oil, they sought out the huge markets east of Suez.”

Then Shack introduces a certain Marcus Samuel, who could “help them penetrate these markets …When the Rothschilds proposed to sell their oil to Samuel …understanding the competition with a foe like Standard oil, he ...understood that he needed to sell his oil at a cheaper price …by designing bulk tankers which were safe enough to pass through the Suez Canal. Standard’s costs would be much higher as they transported their oil around the tip of Africa …In 1892, Samuel's coup would unleash forces that would shape the history of mankind. His first oil tanker picked up its load of Baku oil from the Rothschild's Batum refinery and sailed through the Dardanelles and on through the Suez canal to the far east where the Shell oil company became, overnight the predominant supplier of Kerosene replacing Standard oil. The great Standard world monopoly had been busted.”

Later all the forces of evil join their might, “with addition of the Royal Dutch Petroleum Company …The new company, British Dutch Petroleum, would soon be joined by the Rothschilds forming the Asiatic Petroleum Company, later calling itself the Royal Dutch/Shell Group which would eventually join Standard Oil and the Nobels in a worldwide oil cartel.”

Here Shack touches the subject of the Armenian-Tatar Wars, “The decision by the shrewd French Rothschild branch to diversify into other areas of oil exploitation was, presumably, a calculated one. Three years after they joined Royal Dutch, production at Baku would come to an abrupt halt in 1905 …due to the violence of the ethnic conflict between the region's Moslems (i.e. Tatars, the “Azeris” of today. H.) and the minority population of Armenians who are Christians. This ethnic conflict caused the first interruption of oil distribution to the world market. Standard oil was quick to supplant the needs of the effected markets…”

Shack believes that sacrificing a mere million or so Armenians was a small price to pay for securing the interests of these ravenous hyenas. “The Royal/Dutch/Shell Group (and the Nobels) watched their Baku investments go up in flames. …to eliminate the possibility of that happening in the future …Standard had to be taking notes as well; they couldn't afford to ignore the lessons of Baku.”

Shack asks a rhetorical question, “To an all-powerful banking family like the Rothschilds, whose vast wealth bankrolled many a war, causing millions of fatalities... was the removal of a small minority like the Armenians a fair price to pay for the peace in a region so crucial to the development and investment of the Far East, which contained countless millions, later billions of consumers? Squeamish the Rothschilds were not, their line of work requires pragmatism to rule their day.”

“The mere elimination of the Armenian population of Baku would not solve the problem of ethnic conflict in that region.” While by early 20th century the Armenians had become scattered all over the “empire” they were relatively numerous in the Armenian vilayets and regarding the “Muslim” population surrounding the Armenians Shack allows a miscalculation, “It is here interesting to note that there is no malice on the part of big business in their decision to erase a population. It is simply easier to erase a million than tens or hundreds of millions of the surrounding Moslem population”.

Not counting the unknown millions of Turkified Armenians who were forced into Islam since as early as the 16th century, the Armenian population of the “empire” could not be under three million before the Hamidian Genocide in 1890s. The underestimation of Armenians all over the Empire of Rape has been discussed in the section More Lies from a Warmongering Loser; certainly, after WWI, the population of the remainder of the Ottoman Tyranny counted 13 million, only 8 million of which were Turks. The hundreds of millions of Muslims of the area have never had a problem concerning the Armenians, stronger, it were the Arab countries severed from Turkey who accepted the Armenian survivors of the Genocide with open arms.

In his enthusiasm Shack slips on the oily ground and goes a bit off track, “Of course, history tells us that it was the Turks, and not big business that committed the Armenian atrocities. However, if one looks closely, one would find that the Turks owed more than one favor to the French government which aided Turkey in it's recent past. It was Napoleon III who fought for Turkey's entrance into the concert of Europe. France took the lead in Turkey's economic development with French securities and investment exceeding that of any other nation.”

Yet again the Turks are put off the hook, but it is worth considering what Shack says between the lines, “…a constant behind France's economic power was the French branch of the Rothschild family. Napoleon III was a Rothschild man. Specifically, Baron James de Rothschild's man. Baron James was, financially and hence politically, the most powerful figure in France, indeed on earth during his time. Napoleon's efforts on behalf of Turkey were Rothschilds' efforts. The question arises. Was the Armenian genocide an obligation demanded by Turkey's creditor? The Armenian massacres of 1894 and 1896 occurred merely two years after Baku oil first began to flow through the Suez Canal to the Far Eastern markets. Armenians were living within the Ottoman Empire for hundreds of years (the indigenous Armenians were living in their home and the conditions they had to endure under Turkish tyranny were abysmal. H.), how incredible fortuitous for the oilmen that ethnic hatred would heat up to such a pitch as to consume their population! The Armenian genocide, during World War I, brought stability to the Baku oil region. A further accomplishment of World War I was the successful demise of the Ottoman Empire. The oil fields of Mesopotamia were to be brought under British “protection”.”

Before passing to another Shack article where he further elucidates this British appetite for Mesopotamian oil let’s observe a flaw in Shack’s conclusion. He is apparently not familiar with the history of the Armenians under a millennium or so of Turkish barbarity, otherwise, he would not entirely put the blame on the Rothschilds and exculpate the Turks as mere tools for executing the Armenian Genocide, however, his point has a certain truth to itself, while the oil wolves can not be held the sole responsible for the Armenian Genocide, they certainly helped the Turks by giving them the green light. This may in part explain the indifference of the West towards the plight of the Armenians, even today, in relation with the Artsakh issue where in spite of the Armenian victory in an unjust war perpetrated by “Azerbaijan” under direct orders from Turkey, a cynical double standard is applied where the Armenians are concerned.

In another article, gathering the scattered pieces of the puzzle, Shack asserts that to have an effective foreign policy, the constant strengthening of the British naval power and converting the fuel for the British Navy from coal coming from Wales into oil coming from exotic places was an absolute necessity for the British Empire.

Since the oil production in Britain did not exist back then the Admirals were reluctant at first “but the French branch of the Rothschilds were, together with the Rockefellers, supreme rulers of the oil business having entered into a world cartel with Standard Oil, now Exxon. Oil revenues would be an important source to the financial power base of these global elitists as they pursued their dreams of world conquest. Britain would be manipulated to give up its native fuel supply and rely on an energy source half way around the world. Squeamish admirals be damned!” according to Shack.

He believes one major character in this game was no other than Winston Churchill who on June 17, 1914 “introduced a bill proposing that the British government invest in an oil company. With a vote of 254 to 18, the British government acquired 51 per cent of Anglo-Persian …By the summer of 1914, the British Navy was fully committed to oil and the British government had assumed the role of Anglo-Persian's majority stockholder. Oil, for the first time, but certainly not the last, had become an instrument of national policy, a strategic commodity second to none.”

To maintain a secure supply of oil from not so secure places Churchill had called for diversification of sources therefore, besides Persia, oil from Mesopotamia had to be obtained as well. “To achieve this aim, the Ottoman Empire would first have to be dismantled …This task would be accomplished by the keepers of the Concert of Europe -the House of Rothschild. The global elitist device that achieved this objective was World War I.”

Shack contends the common belief of historians that the Dardanelle campaign was a failure: “During World War I, Churchill was in charge of the Dardanelle campaign [which] was a crowning success for the war planners. For not only did the Dardanelle campaign spell the beginning for the end of the Ottoman empire, but the feigned bungling of the operation set in motion a series of orchestrated events that would empower the Turks to execute the Armenian genocide.”

“With the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, the huge oil fields of Mesopotamia came under British control” which, keeping the “balance of power” in mind of course, led the victorious scavengers into dividing Mesopotamia between themselves and designing the so-called Middle-East to ensure a constant flow of oil to feed the insatiable beast from the west. Enter Saudi Arabia, Iraq, and Kuwait with “puppet-kings” installed and ready to leech.

In the Armenian-Tatar Wars section it was seen that the Armenians “with their superior education, their greater intelligence and push” were the major contributors of the development of Baku and its oil industry and had an important influence in the business. This aggravated the westerners and even led to hateful utterances against the Armenians where one prominent Englishman had personally told Luigi Villari that “he would be glad to see the whole Armenian nation wiped out!” a wish that came true not so long afterwards.

Once again in the context of the Armenian-Tatar Wars, Shack concludes that “Eliminating the Armenian presence in the Baku oil region eliminated the ethnic conflict between the region's Moslem majority which actually interrupted the oil production in 1905, when the oil fields were set ablaze.” It is unmistakably clear that the Armenian competition was not desirable by the conceited westerners.
