US Started Wars in Ukraine, Syria, for Gas, Not Democracy

Could gas and oil be the cause of wars started by the US in Ukraine and Syria? The Burning Point is discussing it with Dr. Konstantin Kholodilin, based at the German Institute for Economic Research, and Alastair Crooke, the founder and director of the Conflicts Forum.

According to Michael T.
