It seems the title of the video game above which none other than Bono invested greatly in
( in whose plot, the "evil dictator" of Venezuela is targetted for regime change!)
May turn out to be strangely prophetic!
Most of us here have heard of Thierry Meyssan, renegade reporter
and thorn in the side of imperialism.
Thierry in his new book is putting forward a new explanatory hypothesis
as to what exactly is going on regarding much of the insanity we see in the world today.
The shift in strategy is the bastard lovechild of Thomas P.M.Barnett and others.
He's just one of the many Strangeloves working with the pentagon.
You can get a good idea of Thierry's hypothesis here:
The US military project for the world, by Thierry Meyssan
Barnett declared that in order to maintain their hegemony over the world, the United States would have to « settle for less », in other words, to divide the world in two. On one side, the stable states (the members of the G8 and their allies), on the other, the rest of the world, considered only as a simple reservoir of natural resources. Contrary to his predecessors, Barnett no longer considered access to these resources as vital for Washington, but claimed that they would only be accessible to the stable states by transit via the services of the US army. From now on, it was necessary to systematically destroy all state structures in the reservoir of resources, so that one day, no-one would be able to oppose the will of Washington, nor deal directly with the stable states.
The basic idea is that the world is being divided into two zones.
A zone of chaos and a zone of stability, the G8
The rest are for the chop. Not for their resources directly, but to destroy them, put them out of the game, so they cannot pose any future challenge to US hegemony or their global economic system in the future and to put in place an occupying force or garrison so that these destroyed states cannot directly deal with the G8 without strong US influence and control
It's loosely based on the notion of "controlled chaos" which has been
a buzz term with US think tanks for quite a while now, but which has been fleshed out
by Thierry in his book.
Anyway, read the article and we can discuss here whether events fit the hypothesis or not. Personally I think he's onto something here, and it looks like a really ugly future we have in store.
