The Pacific part of the world war is readily regarded as a prestige duel between Japan and the hegemonic U.S. It is easily overlooked that it is also about tangible economic and supply interests. Indonesia has is petroleum and that is for both sides extremely interesting.

The Germans, meanwhile, have to write off their next war target. Although Hitler's favourite General Rommel manages to capture Tobruk, he cannot get beyond El Alamein due to problems with supplies. With that the dream to get around the Mediterranean Sea to the resources of the Middle East is over. It remains for the allies.

Petroleum determines not only the goals, but also the logistics. Coincidentally, this General is responsible for the Atlantic Wall, as the Allies land there. It requires unprecedented logistics, especially in the field of fuel provision. The most crazy thing here is that even before the actual attack, a pipeline is constructed leading to the area to be attacked.

One terrible war is followed by another - the cold one, threatening but fortunately not broken out. At the beginning it poses a threat to the second source of oil for the Americans - Iran. There, the Russians are about to secure the Iranian oil for themselves by strange development of federated states. The American President Truman fends the Soviet Union off with a nuclear weapon threat.

So far, we have left out Venezuela. It's the second biggest supplier of oil and a particularly important one for the insatiable hunger for energy of the United States whose own production quotas are going to shrink very soon. Here for the first time, a process is set in motion that shall secure larger shares of the revenues for the producers. A wave of strikes in 1948 already creates a repatriation rate of 50 percent.

The remedy is called nationalization. However, it proves not effectively applicable in the next domino piece, Iran. It is applied when the negotiations with the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company fail. To make it short, no success. On the contrary, the U.S. manages at the end to expand its influence in Iraq significantly.

It is a full victory for the opponent. The Shah brought by the Americans to power guarantees them rights and even buys American weapons using the revenue from oil. He will remain a puppet, although at the end a megalomaniac and replaced by Khomeini. This again creates new problems, such as the religious and national sentiments of Iran, which presumably lead to, unfortunately, an attempt to get nuclear weapons. 08/12
