While the current global revolt sweeping across the Middle East and North Africa is born out of a universal human cry for freedom, food security and a decent standard of living, it is important to understand that the global elite are waiting in the wings to exploit the chaos as an opportunity to re-order the geopolitical landscape in their image, particularly by exploiting the demonstrations as a vehicle through which to weaken and topple the Iranian government.
Citizens of oil producing nations must see more benefit from their country’s national resources, billionaire investor George Soros has told the BBC.
Revolts in Libya were partly the result of “revulsion against a corruption” fed by the misuse of oil money, he added.
More “transparency and accountability” was needed from other producers such as Russia and Saudi Arabia he said.
Mr Soros also predicted the Iranian regime would be overthrown in the “bloodiest of the revolutions”.
