After assessing today’s dwindling oil reserves and skyrocketing use of oil for fuels, plastics and chemicals, documentary The Oil Factor questions the motives for the U.S. wars in the Middle-East and Central Asia where 3/4 of the world’s oil and natural gas is located.

With exclusive footage shot on location in Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan, the film documents the spiraling violence now engulfing both Iraq and Afghanistan, a country conspicuously absent from the commercial media’s news segments. Interviews gathered throughout the Middle-East, Europe and the United States, including a Bechtel executive in Baghdad, also expose who is cashing in on the tens of billions of dollars requested from congress by the current administration of G. W. Bush.

With detailed maps and graphics, The Oil Factor features many experts and personalities such as former Defense Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski, M.I.T. professor Noam Chomsky, the Project for the New American Century Executive Director Gary Schmitt, Coalition Provisional Authority Chairman Paul Bremer, former Pentagon analyst Lt. Col. Karen Kwiatkowski, current Iraqi government official Abdel Aziz Al-Hakim and authors Ahmed Rashid and Michael C. Ruppert. What we’ve seen is a very quiet plan to privatize Iraq’s oil. This is not really surprising from an administration that is run by former oil executives.

    Hi.It is not to get the Oil, it is to keep them from pumping it.
    The petroleum reserves in the Artic & off Indonesia are not to be pumped, the prices must remain under control. The transition away from the dollar depends on the erroneous Peak Oil idea. The war without end needs to be implemented according to plan.

    • Stephen_sharpe56

      The only way the Peak Oil idea can be erroneous is if there is an infinte amount of oil on the planet which of course is impossiable.Once the first gram of a non renewable resource is extracted then the start of the peak of that resource has begun.The question is when will the peak be reached ? The US was the number one oil producer in the world up until the 1960s.It then reached peak production and has steadily been declining since.If it can happen in one area or country it can happen in all other countries and has in fact happend to over half of the iol producing countries of the world.The middle East will be no different.Again the only question is when..not if.

    Hand writing is on the wall, no way out. Oil and water in a dry tree? Viewing what was done in the last century when there was abundance, I restate what the Christ stated, what will they do in a dry tree? Mankind, who can justify murdering close to a half billion innocent children in abortion over the past century, will have little problem coming up with rationalizations and justifications to advocate murder of billions more, if they need the oil and the water. This is ,of course not civilized, but neither is abortion. You reap what you sow, and we are already over the cliff ready to hit the ground. There is no escape, or going back, we cannot bring the innocent blood back.

    Anti-christ will have to appear before the oil runs out, 30 years MAX, I lean toward it appearing much sooner, with it’s mark. Got chip or tatoo? You will regret you ever lived ,if you  do.

    this is nothing except WAR CRIMES at the very worst kind to humanity. Does america have NO principals or respect for human beings? when is america going to answer to the human race for their atrocities to peoples in their own homes and country? forget napalm in vietnam, nuclear bombs in Japan, this video made me sick to the stomach. america must be charged and made to pay aswel as clean up their horrible mess they leave behind. Is america the wold police, why are they permitted to lie and steal and murder and torture and destroy other peoples?? they are criminals of the very worst kind in the entire history of man and they are getting worse. they have to stopped and held accountable
