  2. when i read ”the grand chessboard” at the recommendation of Gore Vidal , the scales fell from my eyes . i saw the whole reason why we are meddling in that region of the world .
    the reason : 75 % of the worlds population , and 60 % of its wealth .
    i would recommend reading robert kaplan’s cover story in forighn affairs mag on the Indian ocean . it fills in the fianl blanks that the chessboard misses.

That may be more important in the long run than the continual blunders in US foreign policy because it shows that the US is ruled by an elite, and is not a government by the people and for the people which has been spoonfed to a dumbed down American public.
