I don’t have too much time just now, so I am not going to say much. But I do have some interesting reading for your Sunday, or whenever. The bubbly exuberance of Mr Pepe Escobar, a well researched and respected writer on all things geopolitical, is never far from the surface of his writings, and he has been extremely busy over the past few days, presenting three very worthwhile stories covering all that really matters in that sphere of activity today. Covering ‘all that really matters’ means there is little mention of the west in these pieces. The ‘west’ is simply not part of that scene today. In fact the west is dead now, and Russia is partially engaged in digging a hole for the corpse – which still continues to wander around aimlessly, trying to figure out why nothing works any more as it once did.
The rest of the world, that part where ‘all that really matters’ is happening, and with a greater degree of freedom and cooperation than at any time in recent history, we might add, is quietly and without excessive fanfare (or military involvement) forming what amounts to a new world of equal sovereign peoples, intent on making that work for the benefit of all.
Isn’t that worth reading about? Well, that is essentially what the following three stories are all about. They centre of course on the big three nations at the heart of these moves – Russia, Iran and China. Names that all the world will soon know more of, and without the obfuscation of western lies and propaganda clouding the picture. Enjoy!
‘Rewiring Eurasia: Mr. Patrushev goes to Tehran’ – Pepe Escobar – The Cradle – November 10, 2022
‘Sun Tzu Walks Into a Kherson Bar…’ – Pepe Escobar – Saker blog – November 11, 2022
‘Bamboo diplomacy: the China-SE Asia romance’ – Pepe Escobar – Saker blog – November 11, 2022
Incidentally, and I will just leave this as a final thought, Pepe does project the correct (more or less) image of the Kherson story, though the commentariat of the Saker blog, with their mostly fixated minds and limited blinkered vision, don’t seem to see (or didn’t actually read) what Pepe was saying. My general advice is to not dip your toes into comment sections anywhere. That be where the Piranhas lurk.
