The United States’s playbook that they have used so far in a number of wars such as the Afghanistan war (1979 – 1992), Syrian Civil war (2011 – present), Russia-Ukrainian war (2014 – present), and others.
1) Ignite a conflict
2) Pick a side and sell it weapons
3) If the parties refuse to fight, fan the flames until they do
4) Sell weapons to the spectators “so this doesn’t happen to them”
5) Nothing is free – cash, credit or sovereignty accepted
