This brilliant article by Claire Berlinski presents new facts on how the Middle East was wrecked beyond redemption. In effect, according to Kremlin records stolen by Russian exile Pavel Stroilov, the Soviets are responsible for it, in a large part. The article depicts a quite different picture from what we are used to imagine, i.e. that it is the oil industry and its unquenchable thirst for drilling and pumping that destroyed the whole Middle East and the life of its populations. The article points out to Mikhail Gorvachev as one of the main perpetrator and facilitator of this scheme. Also, it puts into context the main design of Russian geo-political and geo-strategical experts: the control of the Middle East jewel, the Persian Gulf. Once it appeared impossible, detrimental or risking to start a world war to actually succeed in doing that, Israel became the next target. The role of the KGB is explored at length. Excellent article, two thumbs up!
This second installment of the New World Order series on The Boiling Frogs welcomes F. William Engdahl, freelance journalist, historian, and economic researcher. His main field of expertise lies in geopolitics, and with more specific activities such as the oil industry, drug trade, etc. Mister Engdahl comments extensively in this podcast on the « Arab Spring » and passes into review geopolitical hotspots such as Russia, China, Kyrgyzstan, Xinjiang Province, Afghanistan, Libya and others. William Engdahl touches on other dimensions such as the concept of « Full Spectrum Dominance » put forward by the Department of Defense of the U.S., the three things that an empire has to control in order to master the world (oil, food and money), population reduction plans manufactured by the ruling elite and the twisted concept of « totalitarian democracy ». Great interview.
