The Old New Cold War

by | published November 3rd, 2018

We’ve been talking about a new Cold War for at least four years now. Every tension between the U.S. and another country – Russia in particular – brings forth comparisons.

In 2010, people were writing about a new “Cyber Cold War” as the age of the internet raised new concerns no one had ever dreamed previously.

In 2014, the conflict between Ukraine and Russia with Western nations getting involved spawned more discussions that a new Cold War was in the works.

In 2015, China and North Korea entered the fray, leading people to continue speculation of the new Cold War.

In fact, just the way that people have been predicting a new Cold War for years may just mean that rather than just saying, we are indeed already living a new Cold War, whether we realize it or not.

Or, perhaps, the original Cold War never really ended.

These days, the tensions between the U.S. and various other countries are simply too much to ignore.

I’m nearly certain that a new Cold War has been in effect for some time now.

And between the U.S. and more than one country, that’s for certain.

A $3.7 billion opportunity kicked off on November 1

America Hasn’t Been Doing Well Lately

I could go on for days about the geopolitical situation between the U.S. and multiple countries.

China has been up in arms in the South China Sea, and behaving extremely aggressively towards U.S. Navy ships in the area.

(To learn more about this conflict, and how the U.S. is defending itself, just click here)

Russia has joined up with China for military exercises of the like not seen in decades. These began on 9/11. The message couldn’t be clearer there.

Venezuela isn’t all that happy with us either, after they switched to the euro on the foreign exchange, rather than the dollar.

However, one country is posing much more of a threat than the rest put together (which in itself is saying something), and it’s not in a defense-related way.

We don’t run on defense.

Modern society doesn’t rely on superweapons to function.

However, there is one particular thing that has its fingers in every single aspect of modern life.

Oil.

Whoever Controls This Technology, Rules the World

It’s Everywhere – But Not For Long

You may not realize exactly how much oil pervades your daily life.

It powers your car.

It’s in the asphalt you drive in.

Byproducts of oil are plastics, waxes, pesticides, fertilizers, and much more.

In other words, if we didn’t have oil, most of the things we do without thinking would not be possible.

Therefore, we have much to thank the global oil trade for.

However.

All that is about to change.

There is one stretch of water that is the most important one in the world.

Every single day, more than an estimated $1.2 billion worth of oil goes through the narrow, 29-mile across passage.

Including 18.5 million barrels of oil – nearly one quarter of all oil in the world.

It’s called the Strait of Hormuz. And what happens here can affect everything.

If it were to close, the effect would be catastrophic.

And that’s just what Iran has in mind.

On November 4, the Iranians are planning on closing the Strait following renewed U.S. sanctions.

That means the U.S. – and the rest of the world – could be cut off from our main source of oil. 18.5 million barrels a day will vanish.

That means gas could shoot up to $12 a gallon overnight.

If you can even find any to buy, because gas stations will run out of gas and close.

It’ll be like the oil crisis of 1973 on steroids.

The power grid will blink out, the Dow will crash, and the American economy will come to a screeching halt.

But not every company will crash.

This one won’t.

In fact, while everything else goes haywire, this company could explode in value.

It could rise up to 514% as oil becomes scarce, and people will be begging it for crude.

And when it does, you could join in and have the best chance to be safe from the chaos.

I have all the research on this opportunity right here, but you’ll have to hurry…

November 4 is on its way.

Sincerely,


Kent
