With the oil price manipulation we are seeing globally, implemented by the West in order to "punish" and "isolate" Russian President Vladimir Putin, an ANP reader reminds us of a series of events, that when looked at together, bring about the headlined question of "Were the Saudis and the US behind the Charlie Hebdo massacre as a warning to French President over Russia.
Back in January 2014, it was reported by The Telegraph that Saudi Arabia secretly offered Russia a sweeping deal to control the global oil market and safeguard Russia’s gas contracts, if the Kremlin backed away from the Assad regime in Syria. Furthermore, it was reported that if Putin did not accept the offer, Saudi Prince Bandar had "threatened" terror attacks again Russia.
In the interim from January 2014 to present day, a number of events have occurred that when looked at together, forms a disturbing picture. The US and the west fomented a regime change in Ukraine, Putin's back yard so to speak, with Putin forced to step in by annexing Crimea, which in turn has led to multiple rounds of sanctions against Russia with specific attention to destroying Russia's economy by manipulating oil prices. (NOTE- Russia is the largest oil producer in the world with Saudi listed as the second largest.)
Also noteworthy is the connections that have been made, quite persuasively, that the Saudis are funding and actively helping the terrorist group of Islamic extremists ISIS.
Which brings us to the January 7, 2015 attack on the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, supposedly over cartoons of the Muslim prophet Muhammed, where gunmen entered Charlie Hebdo, opened fired and massacred 12 of their illustrations and journalists. Reports show that one of the Paris gunman has ties to ISIS as CNN reports an ISIS flag was found in an apartment used by the gunman, as well as a video recording of the terrorist pledging allegiance to ISIS. (Shown below the article)
Is it a coincidence that the Charlie Hebdo massacre occurred just one month after French President Francois Hollande made an unexpected stop in Moscow to speak with Vladimir Putin about Ukraine, described as "the first Western leader to visit Russia since the Crimea annexation took place in March," and a "rare show of goodwill toward the isolated Putin?"
Is it also a coincidence that neither the Saudis, or Barack Obama attended the Paris rally where leaders from around the globe marched in solidarity with France after the Chalie Hebdo massacre?
We are told by every media outlet out there that the attack happened in response to offensive cartoons, then again we were told by those same talking heads that the Benghazi massacre was a result of a "video," which turned out to be a huge lie. Many believe ISIS is nothing more than a CIA/US puppet, with the sole goal to create conditions which will plunge the globe into another world war.
Considering all the points listed above, with their source links provided, is it all that far-fetched to consider the question of whether the US and the Saudis were behind the attack at Charlie Hebdo as a warning to the French President over his breaking ranks with the west to visit Putin?
