Geopolitical Storm Brewing from Palestine to Ukraine
By New Rules
In this week’s episode of the New Rules podcast, host Dimitri Simes Jr. speaks with veteran geopolitical analyst Pepe Escobar about why the Global American Empire needs war in Gaza to maintain its geopolitical hegemony.
“This [conflict] proves once again that the US will never leave West Asia. The region is absolutely essential for the empire, considering that the Americans are being slowly, but surely and very forcefully expelled from the big Eurasia by the Russia-China strategic partnership – by their trade deals, their multilateral organizations and economic integration projects. All that goes completely against American domination of Eurasia.”
Here’s what others had to say:
Escobar is the perfect guest, not only for his vast knowledge and cogent analysis, but because he is so personable and engaging.
Symes does his homework, and is always on point, but can be a little wooden, sometimes.
The pair of them makes an exceptional team.
At 32.20 Pepe is bleeped out for some strange reason, I am sure that what every he said cannot be that bad!
Very disappointed, I have watched many many hours of Pepe’s interviews and always found him of the highest integrity, I see no point in being on Rumble if speech is censored.,
Dimitri is one of the most intelligent interviewers on the Rumble social media platform. He poses thought-provoking questions, waits patiently for Pepe to provide his comprehensive response which, if it gets off track, he brings back on track with his follow-up question. And this is all done in the most respectful, friendly, warm and professional manner. This whole conversation needs to be seen by millions. I never knew about the New Rules podcast, but I am now a happy subscriber!
I really still have no idea why if the multi-polar world is happening “so-fast”, why these big players like Russia, China, and ultimately the anchor points of the petrodollar — like Saudi Arabia — have so much difficulty removing the dollar from trade. You would think that if this is a planned strategy, that something as trivial as banking by computer networks in the 21st century would be something resolved early in the design. How hard is it to create a system of credit and purchasing based on a common currency in huge markets like this that actually WANT to lose that dependency on the dollar. Countries like Saudi Arabia maintain trade in dollars because they wanted American military hardware after the US dropped the gold standard in the 70’s,, How strong is that dependency now? It’s like as long as their is a demand for a market of goods with countries that trade in a dollar standard — BRICS will never adopt their own currency. You can’t even get an opportunistic country like India to trade with Russia in rubles — they actually expect to buy oil fro m Russia at a huge discount and pay for it in worthless to Russia rupees, And then India sells that oil to Europe at a profit for Euros. There is no plan for a new economic sphere with countries like India. They look for opportunity without loyalty everywhere.
This is fantastic. I find it shocking that Saudi would want to go with the US and israel versus Russia and China. I suppose it shows their true face. They are as sick as the west.
The real geo-politics. Imperialism, zionism is a tool of a corporate controlled West.goverments, media owned and controlled by corporatocracy. Military, banking, fossil fuels.
That opening sequence reminded me of the old 70’s SNL Weekend Update “Point/Counterpoint” between Dan Ackroyd and Jane Curtain. I was waiting to hear Dimitri say “Pepe, you ignorant slut!” — no offense to Pepe Escobar, who is a brilliant journalist for things too often left unsaid. Looking forward to the show.
Pepe is a very smart guy. But one thing strucks me. He points Russia and China as the good guys with this great idea of “multipolarity”. They are not. They, esp. the CCP are as evil as the US neocons. They want to be the ruling empire as the US with vassal states – as the US. So stop this happy talk, please and commit to the truth, please.
Why is America the No.1 target for migration? Why does literaly everyone who can afford is heading to Europe or the US? And not China? Tell me please, Pepe; why is that? Tip: It is still about freedom…
Russian censorship on Sputnikglobe.com is to be expected, I guess. There’s no excuse for it here!
Let’s not forget that USA and Zionists interfere in Argentina’s el3ctions since forever. Eve Tucker Carlson was there doing propaganda for Milei. Disgusting.
