It's the Oil, Stupid

Tomgram: Michael Klare, The Cheney Effect (in the Obama Administration) | TomDispatch

Straight talk on the American Empire's  continuation of Cheney's energy strategy under Obama.  Well worth the read.  No BS about liberty, freedom and all that crap.

  1. It has always been about American imperialism in order to support American domestic policy and provide resources. Currently, the focus is on oil.

    Same stuff; different day.

    1. The American economy has been built around the acquisition of assets belonging to others at "well below fair market value" since they first landed on the shores. First it was land, taken from the Indians, Spanish, Mexicans, French, and British. Once they ran out of land on the continent, they started on Cuba,Philippines and Central America. And so on to the Middle East. It is just nice to have someone talk about it in blunt honest terms. don't call it seduction when it is actually rape.
