There are some 1000 irregular verbs in Portuguese. Rockefeller was legendary for his use of front men and the surreptitious purchase of companies and people, to hide his hand.� Accordingly, it is difficult to know exactly when the Rockefeller Empire began wrapping its tentacles around the Middle East, but scholars who have investigated those matters say that the world’s first global oil cartel was formed in 1920, between Standard Oil, Royal Dutch Shell (today Shell Oil), and Anglo-Iranian (today British Petroleum). [250] � Whatever the case may be, oil politics guided the dismemberment of the Ottoman Empire and the UK largely took over Iran, and its Anglo-Iranian oil company eventually had a monopoly.� France got its rev enge on Germany for the humiliation of the Franco-Prussian War, and heavy reparations were laid on Germany, a forced admission of guilt, as well as disarmament.� That situation led directly to World War II.� The USA took center stage during World War II.� Woodrow Wilson ran for re-election in 1916 on the platform of not getting the USA involved in World War I.� He quickly reneged on the deal and the American government’s first big PR campaign in American history was manipulating Americans to support involvement in Europe’s war.
