US is trying to take control of the oil market, impoverish Syria and “smash Egypt apart”

Op-ed by Hafez Al-Barghouti, regular columnist for Al-Hayat Al-Jadida
“Washington does not want to fight terrorism and its roots or to solve the Palestinian issue. It wants part of the Arabs to wage a ground war against IS, while it [the US] is busy with the oil price war, the aim of which is to impoverish Syria, bankrupt China in the field of international trade, and cause the Iranian treasury to beg and bow down to the Arabs again. This is a new American war without peace arrangements, which seeks, rather, to re-impose unipolarity on the world. Unless some of the Arab countries address the oil market before it crashes and the US, Canada and their ilk take control of the oil arena, the Arab era will come to an end. For example, the Gulf countries will be unable to make Egypt recover, so that it may serve as a strong Arab axis – and US’ goal is still to smash Egypt apart, in order to revive the Muslim Brotherhood’s project, which still forms part of US strategy.”
