86. Reliving Their Glory Days
when the "Sun Never Set On The British Empire" and they happily carved up the Ottoman Empire to suit their own convenience, imperial dreams, colonial dreams, protect Suez, and protect "their" oil.

They predestined the region for war lords and tribal warfare.

See Engdahl, "A Century Of War: Anglo-American Oil Politics and the New World Order" -readable and adequate, but only exemplary of a body of scholarship. Remember - this was the time when the WWI victors really screwed up Europe, the ME, Africa, and Asia for a century.
