Fascinating take on that Mr. Bumps.
This could very well be an effort on the part of BRICS to secure resources for the leading emerging economies.
This has to be very disturbing to Western interests who are obviously doing the same thing under the guise of an usustainable war on terror.
Recalling a bit of history, though highly unusual; this is not the first time such a thing has been tried. Classic example was Iran back in the early 50's.
Quote:The 1953 Iranian coup d'état (known in Iran as the 28 Mordad coup) was the overthrow of the democratically elected government of Iranian Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddegh on 19 August 1953, orchestrated by the intelligence agencies of the United Kingdom and the United States under the name TPAJAX Project. The coup saw the transition of Mohammad-Rezā Shāh Pahlavi from a constitutional monarch to an authoritarian one who relied heavily on United States support to hold on to power until his own overthrow in February 1979.
In 1951, Iran's oil industry was nationalized with near-unanimous support of Iran's parliament in a bill introduced by Mossadegh who led the nationalist parliamentarian faction. Iran's oil had been controlled by the British-owned Anglo-Iranian Oil Company (AIOC). Popular discontent with the AIOC began in the late 1940s, a large segment of Iran's public and a number of politicians saw the company as exploitative and a vestige of British imperialism.
Despite Mosaddegh's popular support, Britain was unwilling to negotiate its single most valuable foreign asset, and instigated a worldwide boycott of Iranian oil to pressure Iran economically. Initially, Britain mobilized its military to seize control of the Abadan oil refinery, the world's largest, but Prime Minister Clement Attlee opted instead to tighten the economic boycott while using Iranian agents to undermine Mosaddegh's government.
With a change to more conservative governments in both Britain and the United States, Churchill and the U.S. Eisenhower administration decided to overthrow Iran's government though the predecessor U.S. Truman administration had opposed a coup.

I think we're all familiar with how this scenario played out. It seems the factions at the top of the proverbial food chain have conflicting interests. I'm certain we will begin to hear anti BRICS propaganda in the western media before long.
The reality is the US and NATO can't win in a conflict involving Russia and China, and the petrol dollar is slowly loosing it's backing. Iran dropped the greenback just like Iraq and that is justification for invasion in the minds of those who run military industrial complex to which our leaders pander.
