America Escalates Its “Democratic” Oil War in the Near East

The mainstream media are carefully sidestepping the method behind
America’s seeming madness in assassinating Islamic Revolutionary Guard
general Qassim Suleimani to start the New Year. The logic behind the
assassination was a long-standing application of U.S. global policy, not
just a personality quirk of Donald Trump’s impulsive action. His
assassination of Iranian military leader Suleimani was indeed a
unilateral act of war in violation of international law, but it was a
logical step in a long-standing U.S. strategy. It was explicitly
authorized by the Senate in the funding bill for the Pentagon that it
passed last year.
