The Calm Before The Coming Global Storm

By Pepe Escobar Major turbulence seems to be the name of the game in 2016. Yet the current turbulence may be interpreted as the calm before the next, devastating geopolitical/financial storm. Let’s review the current state of play via the dilemmas afflicting the House of Saud, the EU and BRICS members Russia, Brazil and China.   … Continue reading

The “Empire Of Chaos” Strikes Back Against Brazil, Russia, And China

By Pepe Escobar Soon after the impeachment motion against President Dilma Rousseff was approved in the Brazilian Congress by what I chose to call Hybrid War hyenas, President-in-Waiting Michel “Brutus” Temer, one of the coup’s articulators, dispatched a senator to Washington as special paperboy to deliver the news on the coup in progress. The senator in question … Continue reading

The Implosion Of The House Of Saud

By Pepe Escobar The Panama Papers psyops revealed that – ailing – King Salman of Saudi Arabia is among a roast of notorious offshore profiteers “in relation” to “associates”. The House of Saud used British Virgin Islands shell companies to take out at least $34 million in mortgages for lavish houses in London and “a luxury yacht the size … Continue reading

Pepe Escobar: Why The Coup In Brazil Should Fail

By Pepe Escobar As a metaphor of the advanced state of putrefaction plaguing the entire political system of one of the Global South’s leading nations, nothing comes close to what is about to take place in Brazil. The notoriously corrupt leader of the lower House in the Brazilian Parliament, Eduardo Cunha — holder of 11 illegal Swiss accounts, listed in the … Continue reading

Hybrid War, From Palmyra To Panama

By Pepe Escobar The Panama Papers, stripped to the bone, may reveal themselves, as I have argued, essentially as an infowar operation initiated by the NSA – which would conveniently target mostly Global South “enemies” (as in the BRICS nations) and selected, disposable, Western pawns. In its current stage, the Panama Papers have morphed into a weaponized … Continue reading

Brazil’s ‘House Of Cards’ — The Whole World Is Watching

By Pepe Escobar As repellent political spectacles go, this compares to toxic events such as the 1973 Pinochet military coup in Chile and the 2003 U.S. Shock and Awe over Iraq. A woman president in Brazil is running the risk of being expelled from office — to which she was duly elected by 54.5 million people … Continue reading

Brazil, Like Russia, Under Attack By Hybrid War

By Pepe Escobar Color revolutions would never be enough; Exceptionalistan is always on the lookout for major strategic upgrades capable of ensuring perpetual Empire of Chaos hegemony. The ideological matrix and the modus operandi of color revolutions by now are a matter of public domain. Not so much the concept of Unconventional War (UW). UW was … Continue reading

Brazil’s Revolution Starting To Reveal Its True Colors

By Pepe Escobar As we approach High Noon in the savage Brazilian politico-economic western, here’s what is at stake following my previous piece on RT. For the past five days, all hell has broken loose. It started with judge Sergio Moro, the tropical Elliott Ness at the head of the two-year-old, 24-phase Car Wash corruption investigation, crudely … Continue reading

The New Silk Roads And The Rise Of The ‘Chinese Dream’

By Pepe Escobar Beijing is advancing a Chinese-led globalization that will challenge U.S. hegemony both regionally and globally. Earlier last week, the first Chinese commercial train, with 32 containers, arrived in Tehran after a less than 14-day journey from the massive warehouse of Yiwu in Zhejiang, eastern China, crossing Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan. This is a 10,400 … Continue reading

The Silk Dragon Takes The Persian Road

By Pepe Escobar He came, he saw, and he pocketed all the deals that matter. Chinese President Xi Jinping’s tour of Southwest Asia – Saudi Arabia, Iran and Egypt – could easily be sold anywhere as your typical Chinese-style win-win. On the PR arena, Xi did a sterling job polishing China’s image as a global power. … Continue reading
