Pepe Escobar says Ukraine has lost the war. He also said, “Gen Aleksandr Dvornikov, of Syria fame, has a clear mandate: to conquer the whole of Donbass, totally free up Crimea and prepare the advance towards Odessa and Transnistria while reducing a rump Ukraine to the status of failed state without any access to the sea.
After careful evaluation, the Kremlin is rearranging the geopolitical chessboard to end the unipolar hegemony of the “indispensable nation". ~ Pepe Escobar
Putin has spoken of the high handedness of the American regime and its sanctions which permitted it to steal $300 billion in Russian assets totaling up to trillions of dollars seized from a long list of sanction victims. Last year the US seized ships transporting oil from Venezuela. In the past Iraq sold oil for euros and was invaded but only after sanctions had killed 500,000 Iraqi children who needed food and medicine. This one-sided approach has angered many people in the Third World.
Most nations, like most Americans are crushed by debt. They can free themselves from debts to New York, London, Paris and Japanese banks by following Lula who has an ally in Russia’s Sergey Glazyev. He is Minister in Charge of Integration and Macroeconomics of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU).
What Glazyev wants is a basket of currencies backed by commodities. If a nation exports grains but has no oil, then they can use their grains to back their currency without gold. Other nations have oil but no food. Russia has an abundance of oil, gold and grains.
Lula’s plans to repudiate external debts to the US, Britain, Japan and the EU fits into Glazyev’s desire to cancel debts in dollars, pounds, euros and yen.
... once the corruption is blown away. The American people will realize that if they want to eat, they can no longer afford to get involved in wars for Israel and Wall Street.
