25 Sep 2013 – In an address to the United Nations General Assembly, President Obama openly embraced an aggressive military doctrine backed by previous administrations stating that the United States is prepared to use its military to defend what he called “our core interests” in the Middle East: U.S. access to oil.

“[Obama] basically came out and said the U.S. is an imperialist nation and we’re going to do whatever we need to do to conquer areas [and] take resources from people around the world,” says independent journalist Jeremy Scahill.
