Going for the Oil
Despite the claims of blind-man pundits who still think that the US is not after Iraq’s and Iran’s oil, all indications are otherwise. What’s more, this is part of a pattern. Africa has oil, and the US has just announced that it will form a new military command for Africa called AFRICOM. And the latest revelation, from Wayne Madsen, is that the US appears to have initiated “a major military move into Southeast Asia” to get the oil discovered in the Gulf of Thailand (scroll down to March 1 entry; article also appears here). Wherever there are significant oil reserves that might be up for grabs, expect to see the US military.
