OBOR Vs. Leviathan

Here is a great essay by Pepe Escobar, one of the few remaining believable journalists:

But most of all China will seek greater G20 backing for the New Silk Roads - or One Belt, One Road (OBOR), as they are officially known - as well as the new Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB).

So at the heart of the G20 we will have the two projects which are competing head on to geopolitically shape the young 21st century.

China has proposed OBOR; a pan-Eurasian connectivity spectacular designed to configure a hypermarket at least 10 times the size of the US market within the next two decades.

The US hyperpower – not the Atlanticist West, because Europe is mired in fear and stagnation - “proposes” the current neocon/neoliberalcon status quo; the usual Divide and Rule tactics; and the primacy of fear, enshrined in the Pentagon array of “threats” that must be fought, from Russia and China to Iran. The geopolitical rumble in the background high-tech jungle is all about the “containment” of top G20 members Russia and China.

It doesn’t take an oracle to divine which project is intriguing - and in many ways seducing - the Global South, as well as an array of G20 member-nations.

You can read the rest @

Dear World: I love my country, but take my advice - OBOR is the way to go. The US takes all you have and gives you back nothing but chaos.
