A new paradigm for a post-imperial world

An examination of how Syriza won in Greece

Tarpley’s ignorance of the Russia -Turkey agreement over a gas pipeline to the Greek border is a bit surprising. Chinese investment could play a key role in building a connection between Turkey and central Europe via Greece. Tarpley is probably wrong in supposing that the cancellation of the Piraeus contract is a snub to the Chinese judging by yesterday’s statement by Greek representatives. Given the direction that Tsipras appears to have taken it would indeed be surprising if he sought to alienate the Chinese. The contract can. of course, be renegotiated in terms more sensitive to Greek national interests. Apart from that, a very interesting and informative talk by Tarpley on these startling , new, Greek developments.
