I am not surprised. For all one knows, the plan, in some sort of a dilution is what is in action in Syria. I have always wondered that when there was two global superpowers, the world was at peace, even if a shaky peace. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, an interesting article caught my mind - The Wolfowitz Doctrine. The document outlined a policy of unilateralism and pre-emptive military action to suppress potential threats from other nations and prevent any other nation from rising to superpower status. Given the events following the Collapse of the USSR and the world going up in localised 'flames', I am convinced that the Wolfowitz Doctrine is said to have been junked and a new one put in place, is actually in action - the original one. Events all over the world proves so because with the collapse of the USSR (not that anyone shed tears), the world has turned topsy turvy with strife all over. It could not have been without external assistance. Given the geostrategic and geopolitical compulsions of the West to suppress potential threats from other nations and prevent any other nation from rising to superpower status, all this turmoil in the world falls in place. There could be reasons for some section of these countries where there is this turmoil to desire a 'regime change':, but it could not be so widespread since men are generally too disconcerted and are only interested in their daily existence. Very few care about the political chemistry that rules. However, this section of population of the countries which are in turmoil which desires regime change, can only do so with external assistance, since the established government that have been toppled or in the process, have strong military to back up their govts. Therefore, no group can kick up a storm in the teacup. And these so called assisted 'regimes changes' serves the policy that aims to suppress potential threats from other nations and prevent any other nation from rising to superpower status. Food for thought.
