"A quick look at the map is all it takes. It's no coincidence that the map of terror in the Middle East and Central Asia is practically interchangeable with the map of oil. There's Infinite Justice, Enduring Freedom -- and Everlasting Profits to be made: not only by the American industrial-military complex, but especially by American and European oil giants.
        "Where is the realm these days of former US secretary of state James Baker, former national security adviser Brent Scowcroft, former White House chief of staff John Sununu and former defense secretary and current Invisible Man Dick Cheney? They are all happily dreaming of, and working for, the establishment of Pipelineistan.
        "Where Pipelineistan is the golden future: a paradise of opportunity in the form of US$5 trillion of oil and gas in the Caspian basin and the former Soviet republics of Central Asia. In Washington's global petrostrategy, this is supposed to be the end of America's oil dependence on the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC). This is of course the heart of the matter in the New Great Game -- compared to which the original 19th-century Great Game between czarist Russia and the British Empire was a childish tin soldier's diversion."
--Pepe Escobar, Pipelineistan, Part 1: The rules of the game,
Asia Times, 25 Jan 2002

"In portraying Enron as a `scandal,' and as an isolated case of overheated capitalism and `unusual political influence,' the mainstream American corporate media and congressional investigators have studiously hidden the truth: Enron, like many multinational corporations, has long functioned as an operational arm of the US government, the ruling financial elite and as a weapon of economic, political, and territorial hegemony.
        "The Enron scandal, arguably the biggest financial and political crime in modern history, exposes a terminal malignancy at the heart of world politics, and global capitalism itself."

--Larry Chin, Enron: ultimate agent of the American empire, February 2002
