Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
For it to make any sense at all, remined me of an excellent diary in 2005 ...

Iraqi Oil - the $250bn gift to Saudi Arabia and Russia by Jerome a Paris @EuroTrib on Dec. 12, 2005

Of course is was not the intent to help the Russians, so the Western powers weaponized NATO to turn approachment into confrontation Cold War style at the Bucharest Meeting in 2008. (Part 2) Thanks guys, it was an excellent strategy for the accumulation of wealth by the fascist powers in the Middle East. A true Bilderberg blueprint.

I immediately recall the "sense of the Congress" in 2003, when Rep. Bob Ney renamed a menu item, in response to France's opposition to the proposed invasion and liberation of Iraq oil production, freedom fries. More elaborate ridicule and devious threats however produced the desired number of allied troops for the adventure.

US foreign policy is as juvenile as ever.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
