moscow without damascus now the main capital of the arab spring. tells us here about see who could be pushing the middle east and north africa towards the political change that's coming your way right. today we're talking to a foreign end of the author of several books and long of them are gods of money wall street and the death of american century and he is also a political risk consultant so we're going to discuss several more several of the most burning out political and economic issues in the world today 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 all at the same time would you say that these conflicts which we're seeing today in terms of your in the dollar situation and what's happening in the northern africa
and in 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 of the dollar crisis with the american economy and 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 to be on the board or two and nobody in washington wants to admit just as 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 term to keep this sole superpower not only intact but to spread its influence over the rest of the of the planet in that. not surprisingly much of the world is not really going to see that so what you say that what's happening in the middle in the middle east or northern africa right now is
basically an attempt are now at the behalf of the united states to keep its came up very much so the. plan was first announced 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 he 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 down 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 years back and the instigators of those the so-called spontaneous protests these twitter revolts in cairo and tunisia and so forth over the last months have
all been. organized the city was saying some of the people leaders of the protests have been trained in the belgrade in serbia by oh poor activists financed by the u.s. state department. this thing 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 nine hundred ninety one with the collapse of the soviet union the agenda of i.m.f. privatization free market economy and so forth so that western banks and financial agencies and corporations could come in and take the plunder and second to end it
is militarily in places such as libya or south sudan the so-called republic of south sudan to militarize those oil sources that are directly strategic to china's future economic growth so this is all about controlling eurasia something's making abridgements he talked about it back in one thousand nine hundred seven in this famous book the grand scheme. controlling especially russia and china and any potential cohesion of the eurasian country's economic and political what is the result of that they are the so-called arab spring what can we honestly say that the middle east and. north african countries which have come through with the changes have they really become more democratic gyptian tunisian friends of mine say that it's just the opposite the economy is in far worse shape libya had the highest living standard all of africa before the bombing of nato the
day the country is in ruins because of those by means 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 revolts 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 turned this thing could be you know the united states and maybe some of the european powers that you know look at libya will they be able to restore now let's see in these countries or is it not even in their interest i don't think they give a moment's thought to normality your normalization i think big what their concern is especially the pentagon is military control the next step will be in this so-called transitional national council and libya's is to have that proper government give me your permanent basing rights inside libya something they never had before i took off in south sudan some of the things defenseless and those they
have nato forces in there the african is coordinating this the pentagon's africa command which is. interestingly enough created just after trying his two thousand and six africa diplomacy for 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 and the chinese began doing and that had enormous results for china i know that you have a very interesting opinion of this who as you say pays for the wars that were 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 of trying to ease manufacturing in america today so we have three hundred
million plus surplus dollars at the central bank of china masses every year what do you do with that well there's few markets big enough to invest in supposedly they 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 or until very recently is either in dollars or in the euro or 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 which those wars in iraq or in libya unless the chinese were buying u.s. treasury bonds so ironically the chinese are financing wars that directly irreparably can strike me as national interest for energy security or would you say the united states is going to has any chance of resurfacing from the crisis that
it's finding a parking right now the only way as they see if they can they can survive and keep the dollars there instrument wall street i'm talking about is the gods of money and so i call it in my book. is to find new areas of loot so the arab spring is directed against grab even privatizing the vast wealth of the arab oil world and they were 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 return it or inherit it rather well one reason that there's this difficulty with greece and these so-called euro zone weaker economies is that this is part of a kind of a call for financial warfare between the dollar and the euro was reserve currency
that started when the chinese started complaining publicly about the. flawed economic policy of washington running up deficits and endangering the value of chinese treasury bonds so now. just for that to became public. suddenly there was a greek crisis and the greek crisis was put in place in two thousand and two before greece and of the eurozone by none other than goldman sachs the most powerful bank in america argue with me 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 see the european economies endangered us and us because one great difference europe still produces so europe still has real industry which i believe that from
going back to look at the beginning of our interview where you believe that there is some european countries this benefit from this rationing raveling say committee every like france well i was just going to say sarkozy had a meeting in march when the whole drama in libya kicked 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 poured money weapons the cia and the french intelligence have been courting arms into these insurgent groups inside libya this is an armed insurrection financed by nato countries and libyan civil peaceful twitter revolution of a bunch of kids who have a dream of american style democracy or something this is raw power grab by the french but what do you predict right near plan what do you think will happen in the game now i mean i haven't eaten troops we'll have to pull out at some point and
then worked well with him i imagine in iraq like scenario or afghanistan but you have an afghanistan you have seventeen permanent u.s. military bases in afghanistan most of them air bases who are not bombing the taliban and they're preparing for a coming war and perhaps ten years with china or maybe with russia they've got a military bastien in the heart of central asia that's something that they never had during the cold war. so i think libby is destined for a similar treatment what role do you think process should play in the in the events which are in reality 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 the people in the us in that region russia can play other very important role blocking. someone toward events from the side of the un security council in
syria i don't think trying to agree as we do in the case to the u.n. action aside from the action in syria but the in more ways than that russia can play a very constructive role i think in the region to try to cover this peace negotiation i would hope they do. thank you very much for your time. and. those who are fascinated with history. to those who have a sweet tooth. to those who can't live without the skyline. and of course to the nature lovers this magnificent land offers its treasures. between the earth and the sky

i over to the. hopes of a first round have improved somewhat muscovites seeing one of the league's strongest in the metal looking to go here in the russian capital is concerned about top of the reports. has got one just two missions out of eight against me at all when you got lost in the cage shell and only once on home ice this time the home side produced an electric start in the search for third wind days cast right in first as witches luckily i mean put the red and blues a head just a minute sam and in it and a half later to scott's top scorer sergei show lot of double duty forcing it all to swap goaltenders and discouraging start for the visitors and he seemed confused and the house left for the intermission really comfortable to nothing only after some probable had dry treatment from still makers head coach for the canal you can meet
a luke were trying to get back into the game but it was psystar who increase their lead with a power play goal equals person was the first on the rebounds of the shock of powerful slap shot to make it a three goal game with four minutes to go in the second however i mean managed to pull one back early in the decisive period as and on would send the park home on a counterattack to make it three one but four minutes later to sky regain their three goal lead pollution in pasta interest well brought chico and the twenty four year old defender made it four one four minutes before the final buzzer mcculloch's and their lease in the read widely intrigued cutting the deficit to two goals in a power play and the visitors put everything on the line and pulled it all in for next to play but failed to get eyes and their chances as serious cause was just lost on your confidence between the pipes short to the final score you happen to games in are all for us now so when we got the two zero lead we knew what happened the last guided so we didn't want to happen again and. we battle hard and in
the second period we really got lucky will be there because they really pressure as any sort of third goal and power play so i think that was the point for a game where we came out for five to five where we're successful with. a couple shifts to start. manage to get to a ball first of all the second all discard go into one lineup and now sit fifth in the western conference well last season's going cup semi final is with all continued their relatively poor before lunch and stay thief in the inflamed out of our tea. now graham henry has stood down as head coach of the new zealand rugby team this sixty five year old manager living on a handout after sailing his country's second world cup triumph last night against france had managed the all blacks for seven seasons. i'm stepping down from
