Will the U.S. be the Final Domino to fall in the Greater Middle East?

As the dictatorship in Libya appears about r to fall, following leadership collapses in Tunisia and Egypt, one can not wonder if the revolutions now taking place in the Greater Middle East may result in an eventual united front by the people of these countries against the American meddlers.

While the role the World Bank and the IMF have played as enforcers in foreign countries was not widely known or understood by most Americans until John Perkins' expose, Confessions of an Economic Hitman, it was always understood by those who suffered under the enforcement, including many enforcements against Greater Middle East countries.

Also, it is clearly understood in the Greater Middle East region that American dollars have propped up many of the most abusive regimes.

Further, the covert meddling of American intelligence agents in these countries is also well understood by those living in the region. (See for example the recent cover blown in Pakistan of Raymond A. Davis ---caught in the act of killing two people.)

There are complex variables that make it difficult to understand with certainty how things will play out, but revolution and anger is certainly in the air and it is not difficult to see how that anger could turn against the United States in that part of the world. Indeed, the U.S. could be the final domino. This is not the time for Americans to be playing tourist in that part of the world.

  1. If enough of these oil producing dictatorships collapse, does that threaten the dollar's hegemony by the US no longer having the ability to enforce the pricing of oil in dollars?
