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 mr engel thank you very much for joining us to be here 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 that here in the dollar situation and what's happening in northern africa and in the middle east do these conflicts feed off each other are they somehow related or not particularly what i see in all these conflicts the decision to bomb libya the crisis with the dollar the crisis with the american economy and the conduct of american foreign policy in the last period. is all part of a breakdown of the entire super power structure that was built up after be end of
10:32 am
the world war 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 in terminal decline 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 surprisingly much of the world is not too eager to see that so when you say that what's happening in the middle in the middle east or northern africa right now is basically an attempt on the behalf of the united states to keep its game 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 they they published a map of what they had in mind was the control and the. democratization as they
10:33 am
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 the so-called arab spring have been planned years back and the instigators of those so-called spontaneous protests these twitter revolts in cairo and tunisia and so forth over the last months have all been. organized. some of the people leaders of the protests have been trained in belgrade in serbia by old 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
10:34 am
leading circles in the arab world vast wealth sovereign wealth funds of countries like kuwait. and 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 the second agenda 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 a big numbers and ski talked about it back in one thousand nine hundred seven in his famous book the grand chess game. and controlling especially russia and china
10:35 am
and any potential cohesion of the eurasian countries economically and politically but as a result of. the so-called arab spring what can we honestly say that middle east and. northern african countries which have gone 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 in all of africa before the bombing of nato today the country is in ruins because of those bombings not because of could offer. 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 will turn seem to be you know the united states
10:36 am
and maybe 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 the 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 in libya is to have that puppet government give nato permanent basing rights inside libya something they never had before under gadhafi saw some of the things defenseless unless they have nato forces in there the african is coordinating this the pentagon's africa command which is. interesting enough created just after china's two thousand and six africa diplomacy were forty heads of african nations were invited to beijing and 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 the chinese began doing and that had
10:37 am
enormous results for china i know that you have a very interesting opinion of this who was you say pace towards that ways 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 walmart is essentially an outpost of chinese manufacturing in america today so the three hundred billion plus surplus dollars that the central bank of china masses every year what do you do with that well there's few markets big enough to invest in a supposedly 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 they've got something like three trillion dollars of u.s. dollar treasury bonds or bills as their reserves today so in effect
10:38 am
the u.s. would not be able to finance the deficits that they're running. to wage those wars in afghanistan or wage those wars in iraq or in libya unless the chinese were buying u.s. treasury bonds so ironically the chinese are financing wars directly directed against chinese national interest for energy security or would you say that the united states is going to has any chance of resurfacing from the crisis that it's finding itself in right now the only way as they see it 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 grabbing and privatizing the vast 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
10:39 am
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 ever take 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 covert financial warfare between the dollar and the euro was a reserve currency it started when the chinese started complaining publicly about the. flawed economic policy of of washington running up deficits and endangering the value of chinese treasury bonds so now. just when 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
10:40 am
clear if you follow the money trail that that the. 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 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 at the beginning of our interview we believe that there is some european countries which benefit from the situation and having say in libya right now 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
10:41 am
and poured money weapons the cia and the french intelligence have been pouring arms into these insurgent groups inside libya this is an armed insurrection financed by nato countries that libby had sold 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 or in your opinion what do you think will happen in libya now i mean the nato troops will have to pull out at some point and then what will be. i imagine an iraq like scenario or afghanistan what do you have in 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 bastion in the heart of central asia that's something that they never had during the cold war. so i think libya is destined for a similar treatment what role do you think. the in the events which are unraveling
10:42 am
right now i think russia given the history going back more than more than the cold war europe. 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 in the us in that region russia can play a very important role blocking. some untoward events from the side of the un security council in syria i don't think trying to the degree you say do be case to the un 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 destabilization i would hope they do. thank you very much for your time.
