What scores to settle in the ME? That's what you think this is all about? Energy self sufficiency isnt the goal. Iran isnt the goal. Central Asia is the goal, and to control the worlds energy sources, so they can control those who need them. Specifically China, se Asia, LAmerica, India and Europe. And they need to kill Russia because it cant be coerced by oil (they have too much of it), no matter who would be in power. In fact they are a major geo political obstacles, who could even loosen Europe and others from the US grip by providing competitive supply to others.
And for this they are willing to enslave half the planet under primitive Salafist regimes to achieve their plans.
They're fucking Evil, man, and got bigger designs than a childish settling of scores or pay back for 1980 "hostage crisis"....
Kill Russia? Bwaa-haha, you must have been on a Kremlin-owned RT and Pravda propaganda trash-digging binge recently....
LOL, Russia is ALREADY entirely brought and paid for. Everything else is just "controlled opposition" theatrics. Do you think Putin who already had a cancer scare, is going to risk his 50 Billion dollar assets... or his FSB-Oligarch fusion junta? LOL, please don't make me laught.
US has already won. The world speaks English, uses Dollar as Reserve currency and EVERYONE is eating up Hollywood like it's going out of style. Capitalism and Free-markets even have shown their resilency during the worst economic crisis since the GReat Depression, and its adoption was the reason for Chinese, Brazilian, Turkish or Indian growth. And they know it, too despite public grumbling about "imperisalist" US.
China sometimes looks like they have things figured out with our help... but then their groth slows to 5% and massive civil unrest starts -- or better yet, China starts flexing their muscles in South Sea, and suddenly Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Philipines, Taiwan, Thailand, Indonesia, Australia, Malaysia COME RUNNING back crying to American Titty.
LOL, even Chinese girls can't get enough of Kobe Bryant and Lindsay Lohan. That tells you how PROFOUND American long-term Win really is.
And yes, energy independence IS important. New energyu sources once on-line, will bankprupt Russia and force M.E. countries to behave. That's another huge geo-political victory for the US, Israel and Co.
But hey, please indulge in RT/Jirinovsky/Prokhanov/Shevchenko Soviet Butt-hurt, delusions of grandeur & persecution complex.
