Is oil theft at the point of a gun an illustration of a viable strategy to allocate natural resources? The Neocons have gambled it all on the answer being yes. All strategy will be subordinate to and applicable to the validation of this strategy, therefore.
What does this suggest for the future, vis. the inevitable need to "allocate" (steal) the rest of the galaxy of soon-to-be-scarce stuff?
Granted, history suggests that in the end, only an intensely totalitarian state can manage an empire,first, (read Hannah Arendt, Chalmers Johnson)and that even that "management" will have an endpoint that is not too hard to discern, since most of the same problems tend to recur.

A truly postmodern sort of world there.
Capitalism searches out the darkest corners of human potential, and mainlines them.
