A Tangle of Alliances Started WW1 - They're Baaaaaack!

• http://russia-insider.com, Eric Zuesse

The great scholar of Turkish history, Taner Akçam, has described today's geopolitics — the alliances and hostilities toward possibly another World War — as being not ideologically based like WW II, but instead greed-based (empire-grabbing) like WWI:

These are wars of power, influence, and control over the use of Middle Eastern energy resources and the "security issues" related to it. It is quite obvious that the sides in this war are not "those who want democracy and human rights" versus "those in favor of evil dictatorships."

The axes that are now starting to take shape are proof of this: Saudi Arabia and Israel – openly supported by the United States (and likely Egypt over time) – are forming one alliance; Russia, Iran, and Turkey are establishing another.
