27 May 2014 — Stop Imperialism
Eric Draitser of StopImperialism.org provides his analysis of the impact of the recent energy deal signed between Russia and China. He notes that the deal can, at least in part, be seen as a counter-measure to US attempts to isolate Russia following the incorporation of Crimea into the Russian Federation. However, he also points the fact that the talking points coming from the US regarding increasing gas exports to Europe to reduce the EU’s dependence on Russian energy are repeated mostly for demagogic reasons. Draitser explains that the global shift to a multi-polar world is happening more rapidly than anyone imagined, precisely due to the arrogance and hubris of Washington and the West.
