Washington, D.C.: When an empire slips into decline, it does so in clearly identifiable stages. This is the case with the American empire at the present time.
Franklin Roosevelt pushed the US into what became the Second World War for personal reasons (The Roosevelt family were Jewish on both sides and Hitler's anti-Jewish policies enraged the president) and the result of this was that at its conclusion there were two dominant nations left in the rubble.
These were the United States and The Soviet Union and the struggle then began to see which would dominate.
Initially, the United States was successful, and through duplicity and threats, reduced The Soviet Union to a squabbling and disintegrating state.
But those in power in the United States also saw that The Soviet Union had enormous natural resources and so a frantic effort was made to not only subjugate The Soviet Union but also get physical control of her oil, gas and other assets.
America was initially a democracy, then a republic and finally, an oligarchy. The men who controlled the policies of this country are a handful of very rich and powerful people; bankers and the oil industry predominant.
And to secure America's world leadership designs, small wars were fought to gain control of natural resources and establish American business interests and the American dollar as the world standard.
The British empire had achieved this goal at one point but lost everything through arrogance and carelessness and now the American empire finds itself in the same position as Britain did in 1914.
Like the British, America has fought a series of wars against small and relatively defenseless countries to gain control of their resources. As an example of this, America attacked Iraq, not because we disliked Saddam Hussein (whom we captured and subsequently executed) but to gain control of the enormous but untapped Iraqi oil reserves.
Iraq slipped through American control because of religious infighting and with that defeat, the next goal was Russia and her Arctic and Black Sea oil reserves.
The CIA, attempting to get control of Crimean offshore oil and the strategic naval base at Sevastopol, fomented riots in Kiev, shot a few people from a rooftop perch and got control of the Ukraine.
But Putin stirred up so much rebellion in the predominantly Russian Donetz Basin heavy industrial area that no one could get their hands on it and by quite legal means, got Russian control back over the very strategic and oil rich Crimea.
If the CIA were only successful once, they could justify their enormous budget.
