It is easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of a news cycle, but the planners at the Pentagon have deliberate and methodical long range plans for the globe. And unfortunately it does not have a lot to do with morality or human rights; it has to do with running the world by controlling its resources.
Sometimes it is easy to complicate what is a fairly simple concept. The US needs to couch its foreign adventures in some type of moral deed that they can sell both to their own citizens and the world community, but in reality war is always about resources.
