The Ring of Power

This explains a lot, especially in light of the recent archaeological findings on the island of Flores. Hobbit-sized hominids, relegated to a remote Pacific island off the coast of Australia? Forced to eke out an existence among miniature elephants and fearsome Komodo dragons? Driven to extinction by “natural” food shortages and a “volcanic” explosion? Indeed.

Let us not forget that Tasmania--on the other side of Australia--was first settled by British seal hunters. They set themselves up on the Bass Strait islands and proceeded to club baby seals and harvest their skins at a rate of thousands per year. This, of course, paved the way for Tasmania to become a notorious Guantanamo-style penal colony for expelling usavories from the British Empire.

The conspiracy goes way beyond Halliburton--further back than we ever could have imagined.
