EUREKA ! UPDATE: Bush And Co And Paraguay ...

*

EUREKA !

We've sussed it out.

This is what it's all bloody well about.


Eh?

First, it's all the oil and gas.

Second, it's space.

And now the wankers want the world's water!


The Guaraní Aquifer, located beneath the surface of the original four Mercosur countries (Argentina, Brazil, ** Paraguay ** and Uruguay), is one of the world's largest aquifer systems and an important source of fresh water for its people[1].

Named after the
Guaraní tribe, it covers 120,000 km², with a volume of about 40,000 km³, a thickness of between 50 m and 800 m and a maximum depth of about 1,800 m. It is estimated to contain about 37,000 km³ of water (arguably the largest single body of groundwater in the world), with a total recharge rate of about 166 km³/year from precipitation.

It is said that that this vast underground reservoir could suppy fresh drinking water to the world for 200 years.

Due to an expected shortage of fresh
water on a global scale, which environmentalists suggest will become critical in under 20 years, this important natural resource is rapidly becoming politicized, and the control of the resource becomes ever more controversial.


Read the rest, right now.

I believe Katrina gave the Idiot Emperor the idea, Richard.

And the idea that he could watch that tragedy, and see potential profit, speaks volumes . . .

BTW, I truly think you're on to something here, Richard.

I only hope neither Blair nor any of his cabinet have invested with the Bush family on this, Richard.

(That should keep you out of the British courts. ;-))

Mindblowing, Richard. You surely have the scoop, not just of the blogosphere, but of the decade. Maybe even bigger, and MSM included.

Everyone should spread this far and wide. I for one will, I can assure you.

There's a couple of alternative explanations:

Maybe he wants to be with friends.

Maybe he needs someplace to hide after he's forced from office and people find out what he's really been up to. I seem to recall someone else moving to Paraguay for that reason.

Does Paraguay have the legal ability to extradite their "citizen", say, to the world court?

While I am shocked and sickened I have to say I'm not surprised. Not at anything this man and his mob do.

When the first Soylent Green factory 'goes live' I won't be surprised to find the same mob are in control of that.

Hopefully, the Bush/Blair/Olmert triumvate will be brought to The Hague as the war criminals they are.
Hopefully, we will live to see it.

Everyone should be worried. Oil and gas are nothing compared to water.

Once in private hands, the withholding of water would be a much more powerful weapon than the world has ever seen. And NO radiation or the like to 'spread' where it's not intended to.

You could argue that water is the ULTIMATE-WMD.

And it would be a very strong argument too.
