America’s Secret War in North Africa Behind Benghazi Attack

“Behind closed doors, President Obama had given his counterterrorism adviser, John Brennan, carte blanche to run operations in North Africa and the Middle East.

Watch Iran’s $40-Million Oil Rig Collapse Into The Sea

“An Iranian oil rig that cost $40 million and weighs more than 4 million pounds sank in the Persian Gulf last week, news.com.au reports.

Nevertheless, China has been purchasing more in recent months.” Continue reading

Putin Turns Black Gold Into Bullion as Russia Out-Buys World
