In a recent talk in Hartford, GLEN FORD insightfully dissects US geostrategic policy. He explains how the current anti-Russia hysteria--and, more importantly, the US's disastrous and failing military interventions in the Middle East--are part of a larger effort to contain (and if necessary strangle) China. The US ruling class's "crisis" is genuine: the increasing threat that China poses to their global hegemony.

(Continued under "Credits" ... )
Ford continues: To control China, the world's current rulers have to control the oil of the Middle East--but (after the Iraq debacle) they lack the public support they would need to commit hundreds of thousands of American soldiers. So they fund--and attempt to control--local armies of radical Islamic jihadists to serve US interests (such as regime change in Libya and Syria). These desperate alliances cannot be publicly acknowledged. So the ruling class works hard to distract the US public.

This week's installment includes the latter portion of Ford's talk and selections from the Q&A.

Ford spoke at the University of Hartford on May 15, 2017. David Schonfeld recorded the talk live and provided New World Notes with a copy. Many thanks.

New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "boiler room") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
