Over the past year or so, I've been advancing essential two main arguments when it comes to the plutocriminal oligarchy running western affairs. Accepting the premise that this oligarchy intends to establish itself as a truly GLOBAL oligarchy behind the creation of institutional global government fronts - the favored method of oligarchs throughout history (think Venice and Florence here folks) - I have been arguing that, (1) as they get closer to their goal, the more the goal recedes, as the factions within that oligarchy will want to be the faction running things, and hence, the factional infighting between these financial-military-intelligence elites will only increase, and (2) that the whole plan appears to be in major jeopardy, as concurrent with the somewhat engineered financial crisis, there is also a great geopolitical realignment taking place.
This realignment has been underway in part, as a response by once firm allies of the West to the USA's increasingly imperialistic, and unrealistic, unipolar geopolitical world view, being imposed by force in the name of the war on terror, or, more recently, in somewhat transparent efforts to destabilize Middle Eastern nations and either inject western military power into those countries, or install governments of utility to long-term western goals (and yes, folks, radical Islamicist regimes are of utility to those long-term interests and goals).
Latin American countries have long been forced to acknowledge Washington's imperial "protection"...but that is changing in major ways. Brazil, the major power in Latin America, has increasingly been negotiating lucrative economic and technological deals. Now, Argentina, the other major Latin American power, has turned, not to the Western powers that have traditionally been the bulwark of its international trade and implied military commitments (those countries being the USA, the UK - Falkland Islands war not withstanding - and of course, Germany), but, you guessed it, to China:
We need only to ask ourselves two questions to understand the sweeping significance of this: (1) Would Argentina have even contemplated signing such a deal even only 10-12 years ago? and (2) Would the USA have sat idly by and not exerted tremendous pressure to prevent it from doing so?
Well, the answer to both questions is obviously "no", and the underlying reason behind both "no's" is that at that time, the economic and political and military power of the USA was far too strong to challenge so openly. It is thus the fact that Argentina has done this that is a reflection of the USA's growing unpopularity - and behind it, what everyone knows to be a plutocriminal oligarchical class in the City of London and New York - and a determination of countries - like Argentina - that have been raped and pillaged by that oligarchy and its instrumentalities - the World Bank, the IMF, and so on, to break free of it.
Culturally, Argentina, like Brazil, is a European country. Like Brazil, it is a technologically sophisticated country. It has little, culturally, in common with China. But as I've been arguing for quite some time, that plutocriminal oligarchy has massively overplayed its hand, and people all over the world, from the mandarins in the Forbidden City, the apparatchiks in the Kremlin, to the frustrated Greek or Italian or Spanish - and now Argentinian - middle class are fed up with them. The current geopolitical realignment is, at least in part, a reflection of that fact.
This, the leaders in Moscow and Beijing, should also realize. Those countries now turning to them are not doing so because they want to, but out of necessity. The moment they start receiving the same treatment from them as they have received from the IMF, the BIS, the World Bank, and the oligarchs in Frankfurt, London, and New York, they will be gone...
See you on the flip side.
