  • Here Comes China

    I have had a few questions about China and have been slow to do the usual combination of my own geopolitical commentary and Godfree Robert’s newsletter extracts.  This time I want to dedicate the Here Comes China essay to two people.  This will both answer the questions as well as highlight superb work that has…

    Apologies for a 36 hour absence.  We had some house problems, nicely fixed, but it ended up in a power problem which left us without power (and internet) for a good 36 hours.  Yes, of course we have a cool generator, but, you know, it needs a service.  Yikes!

  • The ‘War of Terror’ may be about to hit Europe

    By Pepe Escobar and first posted at PressTV

    Imperial functionaries, even in a “diplomatic” capacity, continue to brazenly declare that their exceptionalist control over the world is mandatory.

    If that’s not the case, competitors may emerge and steal the limelight – monopolized by US oligarchies. That, of…
