“The fact of the matter is that the headlong plunge into a new level of military involvement in the Middle East (Iraq) and Eurasia (Ukraine) incapacitates the US from advancing the rebalance strategy in Asia and China is taking advantage of it. Wang’s meeting with the US secretary of state John Kerry in Myanmar yesterday gives a flavor of the Chinese confidence that the Barack Obama administration has its hands full during the remaining period of the presidency (until end-2016) and comes under compulsion to “respect China’s legitimate rights and interests” in the Asia-Pacific and to enter into a constructive engagement with China.” So much for Obama’s grand pivot to China initiative!

But, as well as a Eurasian revolution it must force a European revolution. Kerry latest speech imposes impossible demands on Europe: a rise in NATO spending per member and the opening of the European market to GM crops and fracking. Popular protests against austerity are going to have to focus on these issues, all the more so since it is now clear, in the light of the Ukraine fiasco, that the European leadership is compromised and unable to lead Europe towards independent policy.
