The Americans are planning to remake the world in their image -- one safe for their multinationals, their "client regimes", and their modern-day imperial control. That's why we've already been told it's going to last a long time. Changing the regimes in Afghanistan, Iraq, and anywhere else there is serious opposition to the new "New World Order" is a major part of the strategy, made possible by recent events. A just announced part of this overall plan (and there are many unnannounced parts) is the sending of 2000 more U.S. Troops to Kuwait right away.
