September 25

OIL'S WELL THAT ENDS WELL

It was an alliance built in the final year of WWII. On February 24 1945, US President, Franklin Roosevelt, invited the Arabian King Ibn Saud aboard the U.S.S. Quincy in the Suez Canal. The US was at war in the Pacific and war required lots of oil. It still does. And the world’s largest oil fields are in Saudi Arabia.

The Saudis provided the lifeblood to the US military and the US provided riches and security to the royal family. It was a marriage of convenience, which was to survive ideological differences. One of Roosevelt’s guarantees, to the Saudi King, was that the Palestinians would never lose their homeland. But two months after that meeting Roosevelt was no more.

When Crown Prince Faisal arrived at the United Nations for the crucial 1947 partition vote he was further assured by the US Secretary of State, General George Marshall, that their country would not support the independent state of Israel. Instead, wary of a cliffhanger election, President Truman backed the partition plan, leading to Marshall angrily opposing Truman and Prince Faisal storming from the UN.

A MILITARY ALLIANCE SIGNED

Faisal would be back, following the Suez crisis of 1956 and a Pan-Arab movement powered by Egyptian President Abdul Nasser. He wanted Saudi oil and that’s when Prince Faisal was invited to Washington to meet with President Dwight Eisenhower. These were Cold War days and Eisenhower was keen to renew the US lease on the Dharhan air base. On February 9 1957 a military alliance was formerly signed.

The Saudis would suspend aid to Egypt and the Pan-Arab movement. The US would provide military equipment and training for the royal army. For the day of the meeting Jupiter had just entered Libra and Saturn was in the 12th degree of Sagittarius. Today, the US/Saudi alliance is under fire. Jupiter has just entered Libra and Saturn is at 11 degrees of Sagittarius.

Spooky! Well planets tend to be reliable timers of such events. But it’s not the only occasion that around 12 degrees of Sagittarius has been a game changer in US/Saudi relations.

THE FIRST SATURN RETURN

The Saturn return of the original Eisenhower/Faisal contract occurred in 1986 – a catastrophic year for oil in America. The Saudis opened the spigots triggering a price war and plunging the price of crude to just under $11 a barrel. It put many US firms out of business. The industry laid off 100,000 workers and the price collapse forced the US back to importing oil.

The second Saturn return is upon us. Saturn came back to 12 degrees of Sagittarius from January this year. Brent crude was selling at under $29 a barrel - down from the June 2014 high of $115.

The Saturn position isn’t just useful for tracking oil fluctuations. On September 11 2001 Pluto moved across 12 degrees of Sagittarius with Saturn opposing it. We all know what happened then. But what was happening days before is not so well documented.

THE SATURN OPPOSITION

On August 27 2001 Saturn was opposing the position of the agreement. Saudi Ambassador to the US told George W Bush, “the Crown Prince will not communicate in any form, type or shape with you, and Saudi Arabia will take all its political, economic and security decisions based on how it sees its own interest in the region without taking into account American interests anymore because it is obvious that the United States has taken a strategic decision adopting Sharon’s policy.”

This came a month after both the US and Israel had walked out of the United Nations meeting on Racism after the Israel Palestine issue was brought up and labeled apartheid policy. President Bush went into immediate damage control following the Saudi communique. He tabled an official reply in the form of a two-page letter to Prince Abdullah.

“Let me make one thing clear up front: nothing should ever break the relationship between us. There has been no change in the strategic equation. I firmly believe the Palestinian people have a right to self-determination and to live peacefully and securely in their own state, in their own homeland, just as the Israelis have the right to live peacefully and safely in their own state.”

Bush had gone further than any other President in actually suggesting a homeland for the Palestinians. But before the differences could be resolved, with Pluto moving across the Saturn of the US/Saudi Military Agreement chart, 911 happened.

THE GAME CHANGER

It forever changed the relations between the United States and a key ally to their military and economic power. Saudi Arabian petrodollars had enabled Nixon to break with the gold standard, as OPEC countries traded oil exclusively for American dollars. So when 15 of 19 hijackers, carrying out the 911 attacks, were of Saudi Arabian nationality, questions had to be asked. They weren’t.

The mainstream media conveniently developed collective amnesia. Nobody thought to recall the symbolism of four planes being simultaneously hijacked and burnt at Dawson Field, Jordan by the Black September movement of the PLO – again in September 1970 - seeking global publicity for the Palestinian cause. Back then the hostages were released.

But 911 produced 2,966 fatalities. Yet George W ensured that the full details of the 911 investigations were never publicly released. Last Friday President Obama vetoed a bill allowing families of 911 victims to sue Saudi Arabia. Obama feels this will also open the USA to charges for their own military interventions. But his veto looks to be merely delaying the inevitable.

Saturn is coming back to 12 Sagittarius. It’s almost there. Jupiter has just entered Libra. The two planetary giants are returning the place they occupied when the original USA-Saudi military alliance was formed. It can hardly pass without a major change to the collaboration.
