Santa’s Not Happy With Obama’s Feckless UN Abstention

Feckless, backstabbing, passive-aggressive, petulant child-man Barack Hussein Obama leaves Israel swinging in the breeze for historic Settlement Policy vote.  As reported by YahooNews, the “UN demands end to Israeli settlements after US abstains “.  And Santa is pissed.

The UN Security Council demanded that Israel halt settlements in Palestinian territory, after the United States refrained from vetoing a resolution condemning its closest Middle East ally.

In a rare and momentous step, the United States instead abstained, enabling the adoption of the first UN resolution since 1979 to condemn Israel over its settlement policy.

Applause broke out in the chamber after the text was passed with support from all remaining members of the 15-member council.

Aleppo is Toast

CNN reports another feckless failure of Obama’s Syria-Russian Policy, “Syria: 2nd hospital destroyed by bombs as regime gains ground in Aleppo“.

At least seven people died and more remain trapped under rubble after “bunker-buster” bombs destroyed the M10 hospital in Aleppo on Monday, opposition activists from the Aleppo Media Center said.
Monday’s attack marked the third time in a week the M10 hospital was bombed. Airstrikes also pummeled the hospital, in rebel-held eastern Aleppo, last Wednesday and Saturday.

Eau de Petroleum

John ‘Effing Kerry’s always sensitive, elite and almost French nose appears to perceive a malodor surrounding this Saudi Prince.

From RT.com, “Saudi Arabia loses oil market share in key countries “.

The world’s largest crude exporter, Saudi Arabia has lost its leading position in nine of the 15 top markets in the past three years reports the Financial John_Kerry_Sniffing_Saudi_Oil_FragranceTimes citing data from energy consultancy group FGE.

According to the analysis, the kingdom lost ground in China, South Africa and the US between 2013 and 2015, despite the goal of maintaining its crude market share amid the oil glut.

“Saudi Arabia has had very difficult time selling oil in this environment,” Citigroup analyst Ed Morse told the FT. “Its rivals are going into a very crowded market in a very aggressive way.”

The country has also lost its market share in South Korea, Thailand, Taiwan and several western European countries, the FGE data showed.

Saudi Arabia’s share of Chinese oil imports fell from more than 19 percent in 2013 to almost 15 percent in 2015, because of increased supplies from Russia.
