"The Arab counter-revolution is stronger than ever - led by the House of Saud and its monarchy minions at the Gulf Cooperation Council. Their most precious ally is the Pentagon, as further militarization of the Persian Gulf - especially via more boots on the ground in Kuwait, and more warships - is being sold as a response to "a collapse of security in Iraq or a military confrontation with Iran".....
NATO will soon rule over the whole Mediterranean as a NATO lake. Africom is implanting itself deeper and deeper in Africa. Centcom rules the Persian Gulf with the GCC in tow. Democracy is for sissies; there's no business like the "security architecture" business."
