“Iraq had the world’s second largest oil reserves, Afghanistan is very resource rich, so we invaded, but Syria is a different story. They just don’t have anything there,” U.S. State Department employee, Giles Hanson, told CNN.
Obama was emphatic yesterday that there will not be any U.S. invasion of Syria.
“What’s in it for us? Plus we’re scared of the Russians,” he said from the golf course in Washington DC.
America is the largest oil user in the world and its appetite cannot be sated by Syrian barren resources.
