IS EMPIRE's WISH FOR THE 'MIDDLE EAST' COMING TRUE?
"While turmoil in Saudi Arabia and a strengthening of al-Qaeda or Iran are America’s nightmares, policymakers in Washington also have a dream. In this, the governments of Syria and Iran are toppled and replaced by much more moderate regimes. The Israelis, reassured by the disappearance of their biggest foes, agree to the creation of a viable Palestinian state. Egypt stabilises and becomes a prosperous democracy. Colonel Gaddafi is defeated and the grateful Libyans hail the west as heroes. A new and legitimate Yemeni government takes up the fight against al-Qaeda. The Saudi government embraces reforms that defuse its internal crisis, and keep the oil flowing."
