    You're forgetting about the greed of corporations which want to own way more than what is needed.

    As long as you don't attempt to bring in socialism and communism as an answer to it all. I don't know how we are supposed to work with communist nations in order to undermine this nation and it's economy, and it's sovereignty.

    They had the infrastructure of a pipeline that flowed oil from Iraq to the Mediterranean Sea so it could be exported to Europe.

    So yes they are not oil rich but that old infrastructure matter to Europe and even Russia and Turkey...

    Nothing wrong with corporations as long as they are structurally set up in a ladder merit system type of way of doing things, and this on behalf of their employee's etc. Using socialist or communist type systems to operate under, shouldn't be allowed in America at all. This causes most of the revenues to work at the top, while the remaining amounts trickle down to the serfs in a socialist kind of way.

    Also Iran and China.

    Imagine if you could connect Iran, Syria and Iraq to the pipeline in Afghanistan and flow it either way from Europe to China?

    Yeah, I better stop...

    American businessmen and corporations, that includes the Trumps, have done a lot of business over the years with China to increase profits at the cost of the American workers...People who love Apple are great at supporting China...
