Subject: RE: Remember the Alamo (March 6, 1836)
Hate to clutter an Alamo thread with this stuff...
But, yeah, Little Hawk, the Anglo-American/Dutch stuff is interesting. The Dutch and English royal houses controlled the world when petroleum came along and promised to be the wave of the future. The royals would have owned all the world's oil, but old man Rockefeller in America began cutting throats right and left to get control of America's oil output. He succeeded and was able to force his way into the elite club. Today, all oil is owned, either outright or through intermediaries, by three families.
But anyway, nuclear power is a threat to the oil monopolists. Jimmy Carter worked with nuclear power in the navy. Atomic subs. He knew how safe nuclear power was. He wanted to provide America with cheap, safe power using nuclear energy. Kind of like FDR did with his TVA project building dams to provide hydroelectricity. But Carter was hamstrung because of the movie The China Syndrome, which was released on March 16, 1979, and then the Three Mile Island incident, which occurred on March 28, 1979. America was spooked by these two events, and Carter had to back off his nuclear plans. Some people say that the one-two punch of the movie and the accident were intentional. I wouldn't be surprised. What would YOU do if you thought like John D. Rockefeller?
After a nuclear exchange in the Middle East, we'll be told that ALL nuclear technology is bad, bad, bad. The oil monopolists will hope that scares us into continuing with the oil. The old China Syndrome / Three Mile Island feint once again.
