MoA’s take on the Empire’s Proxy War against the Global South

Friday, 23 September 2022 — The New Dark Age

I couldn’t resist publishing the backlog of Moon of Alabama’s take on the Empire’s war on the Global South. It complements, to some degree, MK Bhadrakumar’s excellent analysis reproduced below. B

That’s all for now folks…
