    Zbigniew Brzezinski in "The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives" wrote:

    A power that dominates Eurasia would control two of the world's three most advanced and economically productive regions. A mere glance at the map also suggests that control over Eurasia would almost automatically entail Africa's subordination, rendering the Western Hemisphere and Oceania [Australia] geopolitically peripheral to the world's central continent. About 75 percent of the world's people live in Eurasia, and most of the world's physical wealth is there as well, both in its enterprises and underneath its soil. Eurasia accounts for 60 percent of the world's GNP and about three-fourths of the world's known energy resources.

    That power is us, of course. Dominating central Eurasia is key to dominating the world. These people don't think small.

    Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you.
