I am replying since the posts are personallly oriented to me.

Please read the DPG and NEP.

Geoplitics is a part of geostrategy.

I am not critical of the US. I have pointed out issues that apparently were missed out. These are also available in US Foreign Policy and Military journals. US went to Iraq for her national interest and that is about all. It is quite fair for her to pursue her national interest (and I repeated the same ad infinitum).

What is rather rankling is this ingenuous 'Sir Galahad' and the 'Good Samaritan' facade.

The US mind set on Iraq is OIL. Period.

This statement is quite contradictory w.r.t Pakistan, who...
- Harboured and trained Taliban and Al Qaida.
- Financed and trained the 9/11 hijackers.
- Keep playing a double game with the US w.r.t AQ, and make the US forces hop blindly.

The Pakistan's US ambassador designate is Gen. Jahangir Karamat (retd), who is involved in the black market sale of nuke technology to Iran, Lybia and N. Korea (all so called rogue states). This has put the world and the US and its allies more at risk of nuclear weapons.

I am not anti US occupation, but they have screwed up very badly, because they did not plan the post-war troops requirements in Iraq.
The US monopoly over Saudi oil assets expires in 2005-6. The US gets its oil at much lesser rates than the rest of the world. Oil is the resource that drives world industry. Any one who controls oil, has the money.
With the dependence on Saudi oil, the US in unable to take on the Wahabis of Saudi Arabia. But with the monopoly secured over Iraqi oil (which was Saudi oil industry's major competitor), the US will be free to put the Saudi monarchy in its place.
It is quite simple.

en....i think occupying Iraq is just another move of clearing up the russian and chinese influence in middle-east, and getting more oil reserve....

and fortunately, U.S finds a good excuse to go into there, first WMD, now liberating iraqis.....
