I think the strategy is really fucked up, honestly. It seems to be to destabilize the world in order to drive up the prices of oil. Then secure the United States as the primary purchaser of the oil in those countries, with American and British oil companies being the primary contractors. All of which keeps the Petrodollar relevant.
Just in a purely evil empire context, it would be more effective to just invade, seize the oil reserves, pump it all out and bring it to the United States for distribution. But neocons are cucks even when it comes to empire. They are truly pathetic specimens.

Yes but low oil prices are actually bad for those same oil companies and actually quite a lot of domestic manufacturing. It's good for transportation but if there isn't much being manufactured for the production of oil there really isn't all that much else we would be moving around the country. We can't store it for too long either which is the other problem with just taking it. If we could we probably would.

People don’t buy ridiculously oversized vehicles when oil is expensive. Car makers do not approve.

The strategy is to build and protect transport routes from the oil countries to the "right" markets and to put a belt of unstable rubble-ized regions between the oil and the "wrong" customers. Look at a map.
