In These New Times

A new paradigm for a post-imperial world

There has always been a war on terror dating back to the great anti-Catholic scares on which Great Britain was built ,the anarchist plots through to the communist menace and the evil empire. This one is aimed at creating a clash of civilizations between Christendom and Islam.

The first disclosure regarding Saudi Arabia’s impending announcement on the termination of its air strikes on Yemen didn’t come from Riyadh. It came from Tehran. The Saudi Ministry of Defence formally made its statement a few hours later. (FARS news agency). Clearly, intense consultations preceded the announcement and Iran was not only in the loop but had positioned itself in a key role.

The Grand Saudi Reversal

Posted by seumasach on September 1, 2014

To complete the picture presented here by Meyssan we have to look at the conflicts inside the USA. It is interesting to see how Hagel comes to the fore now and Kerry fades from the scene, the one playing a winning game against the IS and the other taking the booby prize after the disastrous intervention in Ukraine. So on the one hand we have the constitutional or national state with the military at its core and , on the other, the deep or imperial state with the State department at its core. Between the two Obama equivocates but as commander-in-chief will ultimately go with the former. It wasn’t for nothing that the British backed the Confederacy and opposed the Presidential Republic! The deep state is now outmaneuvered in Iraq where the  dirty game of backing Al-Qaida networks can no longer be played. As Meyssan points out things have turned around so fast that some players are still dancing even though the music has stopped.

Threatened in its very existence by a possible attack grom the Islamic Emirate, Saudi Arabia has given the signal for the destruction of the organization. But contrary to appearances, the EIS remains supported by Turkey and Israel who sell their looted oil.

11th June, 2013

The Obama administration offered no indication on Monday about what it intended to do about Snowden.

What if?

“What If?” histories are a good read. They are entertaining, and they provoke thought and encourage the imagination. How different the world would be if different judgments, decisions, and circumstances had prevailed at history’s turning points. Certainly English history would have been different if King Harold’s soldiers had obeyed his order not to pursue the defeated fleeing Normans down the hill. This broke the impenetrable Saxon shield wall and exposed King Harold to Norman cavalry.
