President Obama has been pursuing the acquisition and destruction of nuclear weapons and is engaging in a treaty negotiations with both Syria and Iran. This article is the history leading up to those events.
The United States became an oil exporting country in in the late 1890s with the discovery of vast oil deposits in places like Texas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana. This produces a cheap source of fuel for cars, trucks, trains, and ships.
Extensive oil deposits were discovered in Muslim dominated countries from 1908 to 1915. Most of the worlds ships are converted from coal to oil within a few years playing a roll in triggering the first World War.
Russia, the United Kingdom, and France gain complete control of Muslim oil fields during World War I, but the Russian Royal family is murdered by labor union organizers during nationwide protests. Frederick Koch earns $500,000 building petroleum processing facilities to produce fuel for the former Soviet Union while learning about the potential threat of labor unions.
Republicans outlaw Mexicans in 1929 and 2.5 million legal US residents and citizens are deported to "protect American jobs". Approximately 1 in 10 dwellings are abandoned by summer. The stock market collapses in October after banks extract money to make up for lost mortgage payments. This triggers the Great depression.

Stalin concludes that the United States has hostile intentions. The soviet union conducts its first nuclear weapons test in 1949 and contemplates invading neighboring countries to prevent US invasion.
The Soviet nuclear test creates an irrational wave of anti-Soviet political campaign activity. A revolution occurs in China at the end of World War II, and the new government adopts socialism. All of the worlds' super powers are now socialist.
