region special economic zone promise is exceptional for cheese or debility you'll business in russia will come to the small region for more information log on to the leader of the contest and some are of that all you. eight thirty am in moscow these iraqi headlines the arab league makes a last ditch effort to end bloodshed in syria demanding president assad talk with the opposition and withdraw from the streets violent clashes between anti regime protesters and security forces claim some three thousand lives since the arrest ordered the march. on washington stops its funding of unesco hours after the u.n. culturally agency grants palestinians full membership by a majority vote the move is seen by many as a sign of growing international support for palestine's ending un statehood bid. at
12:31 am
least at the how we treat the resurrection of a russian spy ring code named ghost stories as the f.b.i. releases footage featuring sleeper agents uncovered in the u.s. last year including famous friends that's how i met chad. was syria now at the epicenter of the arab spring we speak with author historian aphelion engdahl on what or who is behind the uprisings who he thinks is behind the uprisings in the middle east and north africa. today we're talking to a fallen angel the author of several books among them are gods of money wall street and the death of the american century and he is also a political risk consultant so we're going to discuss several more several of the most burning our political and economic issues in the world today and the standoff thank you very much for joining us. to start off basically a never never before has the world faced so many economic and political problems
12:32 am
all at the same time would you say that these conflicts which we're seeing today are in terms of if you're in the dollar situation and what's happening in the northern africa and the middle east do these conflicts feed off each other or are they somehow related or not particularly what i see in all these conflicts the decision to libya the crisis with the dollar crisis with the american economy and to the conduct of american foreign policy in the in the last period. is all part of the breakdown of the entire super power structure that was built up after the end of the world war two and nobody in washington wants to admit just there's nobody in britain a hundred years ago wanted to admit that the british empire was an interminable climb all of this is related to the attempt to keep this sole superpower not only intact but to spread its influence over the rest of the planet and that. not
12:33 am
surprisingly much of the world is not to be good to see that so would you say that what's happening in the middle in the middle east or northern africa right now is basically an attempt are not the behalf of the united states to keep its game up very much so the. plan was first to announce by george w. bush when he was president just after the invasion of iraq in two thousand and three at a g. eight meeting and it was called the greater middle east project and that project they published a map of what they had in mind was the control and the. democratization as they call it of the entire islamic world from afghanistan pakistan through iran syria. the persian gulf area the oil producing states there and across north africa all the way to morocco and the events of the so-called arab spring have been planned
12:34 am
years back and the instigators of those so-called spontaneous protests these twitter revolts in cairo and the tunisia and so forth over the last months have all been. organized to sid you are saying some of the people leaders of the protests have been trained in the belgrade in serbia by old poor activists financed by the us going to prop and. this has state department and u.s. intelligence all over it. and why why are they doing this well two things in my view one. there is vast wealth in the hands of the leading circles in the arab world vast wealth sovereign wealth funds of countries like kuwait to other countries but also just the resources and one of the agendas is to introduce as was done in the soviet union after one thousand nine hundred one with the collapse of the soviet union the agenda of i.m.f.
12:35 am
privatization free market economy and so forth so that western banks and financial agencies and corporations could come in and take the plunder the second agenda is militarily from places such as libya or south sudan and our so-called republic of subsidies and to militarize those oil sources that are directly strategic to china's future economic growth so this is all about controlling eurasia something's a big brzezinski talked about a back and i can ninety seven in his famous book the grand czeska. and controlling especially russia and china and any potential cohesion of the racial countries economically and politically but as a result of they are ever of the so-called arab spring what can we honestly say that middle east and. north african countries which have gone through with the changes have they really become more democratic egypt in tunisia and friends of
12:36 am
mine say that it's just the opposite the economy is in far worse shape libya had the highest living standard in all of africa before the bombing of nato today the country is in ruins because of those bombings not because of. the economy of egypt is in dire straits the military remains in control they were in the military high command of egypt was sitting in the pentagon when the reports kicked off and waited for a signal from the pentagon when to return and take control of those events so while the instigators of the conflicts all turn or seem to be you know the united states and some of the european powers that you know look at libya will they be able to restore normality in these countries or is it not even in their interest i don't think they give a moment's thought to normality or normalization i think what their concern is especially the pentagon is military control the next step will be on this so-called transitional national council and libya's just to have that proper government give
12:37 am
the legal permanent basing rights inside libya something they never had before and to cut off in. some of the thing the defense of this unless they have a nato forces in there the african is coordinating this the pentagon's africa command which is. interestingly enough created just after china's two thousand and six africa diplomacy were forty heads of african nations were invited to beijing and the enormous deals were signed with the chinese companies for oil exploration to build hospitals give soft loans everything the i.m.f. didn't do in africa in the last thirty years we chinese began doing and that had enormous results for china i know that you have a very interesting opinion of this who was you say paid for wars and raised by the united states well you have to go back to the role in the last twenty or thirty years actually began in the eighty's with the role of the dollar as world reserve currency and china has an enormous trade surplus wal-mart is essentially an outpost
12:38 am
of trying he's manufacturing you know in america today so the three hundred billion plus surplus dollars at the central bank of china masses every year what do you do with that well there's a few markets big enough to invest in i suppose really big could buy gold for their central bank reserves which they are doing by the way but the only place they can invest it as they see it right now until very recently is either in dollars or in the euro fav got something like three trillion dollars of u.s. dollar treasury bonds or bills as their reserves today so in effect the u.s. would not be able to finance the deficits that they're running. to wage those wars in afghanistan or wage source wars in iraq or in libya unless the chinese were buying u.s. treasury bonds so ironically the chinese are financing wars directly directed
12:39 am
against trying his national interest for energy security what you say the united states is going to has any chance of resurfacing from the crisis that it's finding it's nothing right now the only way. they can survive and keep the dollars their instrument wall street i'm talking about is the gods of money it's a call it in my book. is to find new areas of loot so the arab spring is directed against grabbing and privatizing the best wealth of the arab oil world and the arab world generally just as the use of the i.m.f. in the former soviet union was consciously designed by wall street and by washington in order to plunder the vast resources of russia and the former soviet union and warsaw pact countries so if the dollar does not retain its superior status do you think there's any likelihood that the euro will retain it or inherit it well one reason that there's this difficulty with greece and these so-called
12:40 am
euro zone weaker economies is that this is part of a kind of a covert financial warfare between the dollar and the your voice from the sort of inside extorted from the chinese started complaining publicly about the. flawed economic policy of washington running up deficits and in danger in the value of chinese treasury bonds so now. just for that became public. suddenly there was a greek crisis and the greek crisis was put in place in two thousand and two before greece under the euro zone by none other than goldman sachs the most powerful bank in america arguably today politically well connected in washington so. it's very clear if you follow the money trail that that big. crisis was programmed to be detonated at command by wall street and the us treasury as well as the federal reserve in order to defend the reserve currency role of the us dollar but i don't
12:41 am
see the european economies endangered as a us because one great difference europe still produces things europe still has a real industry which i believe that from going back to the beginning of our interview i do believe that there is some european countries which benefit from a situation rather than let's say in libya right now like france well i was just going to say sarkozy had a meeting in march when they had the whole drama in libya capped off he invited leaders of the so-called transitional national council to paris and made them whispered sweet nothings in their ears about having control of the oil resources of eastern libya and record money weapons and cia and the french intelligence have been pouring arms into these insurgent groups inside libya this is an armed insurrection financed by nato countries in libya it's an old peaceful twitter revolution of a bunch of kids who have a dream of american style democracy of something this is
12:42 am
a power grab by the french but what do you predict right in your opinion what you think will happen in libya now i mean there need to the troops will have to pull out at some point and then right well look. i imagine in iraq like scenario or afghanistan what you have in afghanistan you have seventeen permanent u.s. military bases in afghanistan most of them arab nations who are not bombing the taliban and they're preparing for a coming war and perhaps ten years with china or maybe with russia played got a military bastion in the heart of central asia something that they never had to win the cold war. so i think libya's is destined for a signature what role do you think process are playing in the in the events which are irrelevant right now i think russia given the history going back more than more than the cold war era. russia can play a very stabilizing role as a as a counter force to this highly dangerous strategy of the greater middle east project of nato with us in that region russia can play
12:43 am
a very important role blocking. someone toward events from the side of the un security council in syria i don't think china would agree usually do more than the case to the u.n. action so from the action in syria but in more ways than that russia could play a very constructive role i think in the region to try to counter this to be stabilization i would hope they do and signs of thank you very much for your time. those who are fascinated with history. to those who have a sweet to. those who can't live without discomfort. and

12:51 am
pull one back early in the decisive period as undone would send them back home on the counter-attack to make it three one but four minutes later to sky regain their three goal lead looming past to beatrice last brush to go in the twenty four year old defender made it four one four minutes before the final buzzer mcculloch's and we had a lease in the way of the intrigue cutting the deficit to two goals in a power play and the visitors put everything on the line and pulled the goalie for next to where it failed to get allies and a chance is as serious gaza was just last minute was confident between the fives to the final score yep and two games in are all four out so when we got there through zero lead we knew what happened the last game they guided so reading what are happening again and. by the hiram in a second period we really got lucky will be there because they really pressure us and we scored a third goal in powerplay so i think that was the point for the game we came out or
