The Grand Chessboard Is All About Oil & Natural Gas

About 30 years ago, then President Jimmy "Mr. Peanut" Carter and his National Security Advisor, Zbigniew Brzezinski, had a 'peanut brain idea' that the US could take over the entire Caspian Basin mother lode of oil and natural gas if they created Al Qaeda to destabilize those Islamic areas (except for Christian Georgia) and turn them against Russia.

Well, it was a nut brain idea at the time, and it is still a nut brain idea. Here we are, about three decades later, and Russia is stronger than ever while the US is sinking like the Titanic...and its dreams of hegemony over the Caspian Basin are already sitting on the bottom of the sea.
