If I gave you an IOU for a bottle of beer and you held onto that IOU forever, I would have a free bottle of beer. That is what the USA has done to the tune of 17 trillion dollars. The USA wriggled out of Gold backing the dollar in 1971 and used the military to back it with oil in 1973 (birth of the petrodollar). Without the petrodollar, the USA would see a flood of unwanted dollars (IOU's) coming back for payment. That would crash the dollar. This is already happening anyway as China and Japan have started offloading treasuries.
Taking out Syria into US and Arab control means that Russia will no longer dominate European gas supplies, and give the US and it's arab allies competition with Russia and Iran with supplying China and the rest of East Asia with energy. China prefers to deal with Russia and Iran as they do not pose a threat to its planned world or co world domination with the US.
War and the economic collapse are two sides of the same coin.
That is the real reason behind the possible attack on Syria.
It's not about the people.
It's not about chemical weapons.
It's about greed.
And the media only shows canned opinions that have little to do with the real reasons.
