Quote, November 2002

   “The parallels between the military strategy and energy policy are striking. Without implying any conscious intent by the administration to heighten this conjunction, it is clear that an energy policy favoring increased US access to oil supplies in the Persian Gulf, the Caspian, Latin America and sub-Saharan Africa would be more realistic if accompanied by a strategy favoring a big increase in US capacity to project military power. Whether or not senior political figures have reached this conclusion, US military officials have certainly done so. In the Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR) report of September 2001, the Department of Defense acknowledges that ‘The US and its allies will continue to depend on the energy resources of the Middle East,’ and that access to this region could be jeopardized by military threats.” The report also says that American strategy “rests on the assumption that US forces have the ability to project power worldwide.” [Le Monde, 11//02]
