 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.
