 Washington is now therefore committed, before all else, to dominating all oil and gas reserves, everywhere.  Classical imperial conquests of Iraq and Afghanistan, coupled with the associated building of massive military installations in the former Soviet empire (Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan) have effectively turned the entire Middle East into an American protectorate.  Iraq is a colony, dismantling extensive agreements with France, Russia and China to develop Iraqi oilfields.  Afghanistan is a colony.  Georgia (on the route of Baku-Ceyhan) has been a protectorate since the 2004 elections.  Kuwait is a protectorate.  Pakistan is dependant on US support. Washington is now therefore committed, before all else, to dominating all oil and gas reserves, everywhere.  Classical imperial conquests of Iraq and Afghanistan, coupled with the associated building of massive military installations in the former Soviet empire (Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan) have effectively turned the entire Middle East into an American protectorate.  Iraq is a colony, dismantling extensive agreements with France, Russia and China to develop Iraqi oilfields.  Afghanistan is a colony.  Georgia (on the route of Baku-Ceyhan) has been a protectorate since the 2004 elections.  Kuwait is a protectorate.  Pakistan is dependant on US support.
  
-Moves for other oil reserves have met less resistance, but have been no less assiduous.  In early 2003, Washington reached agreements over the use of the Pacific islands of Sao Tomao and Principe, both within striking distance of the west African oilfields from Morocco to Nigeria, Equatorial Guinea and Angola.  Up to 25 per cent of US oil needs will soon come from west Africa, according to some predictions.  Military aid continues to pour into Colombia.  The removal of Chávez was attempted in 2002.  The US imports more oil from Colombia, Venezuela and Ecuador than the entire Middle East.  Libya returned to Washington's circle of friends in January 2004, throwing out agreements to develop oil with Japan, Italy, China and France (countries not bound by US sanctions).  Somebody was impressed by the Iraqi invasion?  New US military bases have been built in Indonesia under terrorist pretexts.  Washington has so far managed to block Japanese agreements to develop Iranian oil and is locked in ongoing attempts to become more involved in Russian oil developments.+Moves for other oil reserves have met less resistance, but have been no less assiduous.  In early 2003, Washington reached agreements over the use of the East Atlantic islands of Sao Tomao and Principe, both within striking distance of the west African oilfields from Morocco to Nigeria, Equatorial Guinea and Angola.  Up to 25 per cent of US oil needs will soon come from west Africa, according to some predictions.  Military aid continues to pour into Colombia.  The removal of Chávez was attempted in 2002.  The US imports more oil from Colombia, Venezuela and Ecuador than the entire Middle East.  Libya returned to Washington's circle of friends in January 2004, throwing out agreements to develop oil with Japan, Italy, China and France (countries not bound by US sanctions).  Somebody was impressed by the Iraqi invasion?  New US military bases have been built in Indonesia under terrorist pretexts.  Washington has so far managed to block Japanese agreements to develop Iranian oil and is locked in ongoing attempts to become more involved in Russian oil developments.
