I will have to watch this documentary again. It is packed with blunt recounting of the history and multiple forces impelling the US and other dominant nations as they mercilessly sweep back and forth across this oil and gas rich and vulnerable Middle Eastern region. I have loosely kept up with the major shifts in power over there over the last fifty years and have delved some into the times in the early 1900s when oil fields were being discovered and drilling contracts were being signed. I only recently learned about the role of the pipelines through the region between Turkey and Afghanistan and from there to China, India, Europe, and the US. There so much provocative information congealed in this hour and a half that it screams to be taken seriously and viewed many times. And, I am not one who views films more than once. I offer thanks to those who made this film.
