Energy independence or emergence of U.S. oil imperialism?

It’s become crystal clear that controlling oil access is the cornerstone of U.S. Middle East policy. But now, given the tough situation Washington is facing in the region in response to its continuous attempts to transform the region, planning regime changes in many states, laying hands on the Middle East and the Arab world oil wealth proved difficult than the Bush administration and previous U.S. governments have predicted.

Seeking a “democratic” or in other words “puppet” government in Iraq was the U.S. goal to lay hands on the country’s oil resources, up until it ousted the former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein.

But this was only part of a larger plan that includes usurping the entire Middle East’s riches.
