In a perfect world, this would be the subject material of the mainstream media, not the disinformation propoganda that we get from them. The world is becoming excedingly dangerous because of the neocon agenda of divide and conquer that will eventually lead to WWIII.
Besides the US outspending all potential competitors and allies combined on defense, the US has been using means other than warfare to exert its power in volatile regions worldwide. If you have read Brzezinski's Grand Chessboard, Engdahl asks the corollary questions about the expansion of US power into Central Asia and he asks what purpose this expedition into the "Graveyard of Empires" might serve.
Aside from outright military intervention other means of US goals being achieved include peaceful revolutions and swarming coups. This book was written in 2009 but serves well to educate the reader into some of the actions of the "Arab Spring" of 2011. One will never be able to think of NGOs as neutral uninterested parties in foreign affairs after examining this book.
Most of all Engdahl examines the contours of US strategic policy since the end of the Cold War where he posits the the Cold War never ended, just went into a new hyper-power phase where the triumphant US has decided to "make a go" at being a global hegemonic power, devoting so much to military supremacy and global dominance that any emerging power wold break their bank attempting to catch up to US military technological supremacy.
This book might be a difficult read for an uniformed layperson, but do yourself a favor and familiarize yourself to these concepts if you want to understand unstated motives in international affairs.
It will help you see through the propaganda you hear.
William Engdhal's book is a synthesis of articles which he has posted on the Global Research website.
Endghal successfully breaks down US geostrategy into managable parts. So we have China scrambling for control of resources in Africa, Russia forming economic Ties with the European Union etc. In Response, terrorism & humanitarian intervention have been used as a pretext for US military intervention in order to place a wedge between alliances which could challenge US hegemon status.
Any means justifies the ends. So we see US foreign policy propping up criminal syndicates in Kosovo & Afghanistan. Proxy wars in Africa and the formation of a Unified Combat command AFRICOM which serves as a device to control China striking deals with African countries for minerals/oil. The "Color Revolutions" which were influenced by front groups such as the National Endowment for Democracy which were controlled by the State Dept/US Gov't/ Wall Street interests..The elections placed US controlled gov't at the doorstep of Russia's borders & extended NATO's reach to control Russian/Eurpoean politics and economic integration.
An interesting read! I highly recommend this book
If you read one book on geopolitics, this should be your choice.

A highly informative book for the individual who sees as well as cares where, how, and why their country has gone astray.
