Exchanging the European NATO for the Arabic NATO
The Anglo-American establishment’s strategy in Ukraine was always about creating leverage against Russia for the purpose of maintaining access in the resource rich Middle East. Let me explain.
The post G7 comments by German Chancellor Angela Merkel that Europe can no longer rely on the United States and the United Kingdom are aligned with the larger unfolding multilateral realignment of the world. She made it clear that Germany and Europe could no longer depend on others and must take its destiny into its own hands.
One of the key points in the POM multilateral thesis is that Europe will have to become a part of the larger Eurasian Union. This is the underlying reason for the BREXIT vote and some of Trump’s statements regarding NATO members and the costs of carrying the large military alliance.
Merkel’s comments could be intended to create leverage against the Trump Administration but the fact that Britain was included would suggest that something larger has been put in motion.
During the G7 summit Trump made comments about Germany being bad for exporting so many German made vehicles into the United States. The comment was obviously meant to cause tension and create an atmosphere of uncertainty. Unbalancing your opponent and claiming the dominant ground is negotiating 101, which is a strategy that all of Trump’s statements and actions should be filtered through.
Forcing European nations to begin picking up more of the tab for NATO is the first step in realigning the region and allowing America to pullback and renegotiate trade deals. It is also interesting that on the same Trump trip around the world the creation of an Arabic NATO was announced. The shifting of the geopolitical winds is clear to see and fit perfectly with the larger thesis which we have been discussing here on POM since the beginning of 2014.
The Anglo-American establishment would be allowed to have either Europe or the Middle East, but not both. It was always going to be Ukraine or Syria, but never the two together.
Also confirming this thesis and analysis are the growing attempts to isolate Iran. The emboldened anti-Iranian scripting has picked up steam throughout Trump’s visit to the Middle East and during the G7 summit. It should be considered that Russia may turn on its allies in the Middle East, being Syria and Iran, in exchange for Ukraine and Europe.
It was never going to be both. The Anglo-American strategy in Ukraine was leverage to use against Russia to get what it wanted in the Middle East. The Anglo-American establishment would never give up resource poor Europe for the resource rich Middle East.
The wild card here has been, and will continue to be, Iran. Will Iran be folded into a new Middle East which is dominated by Sunni Saudi Arabia? Or will it integrate itself into the larger Eurasian Union and maintain its alliances with Russia and China? There are many moving pieces here but the hatred between the Sunni and Shia is unlikely to allow for any form of alliance between the two.
The unfolding drama in North Korea could be the Anglo-American establishments Asian Ukraine strategy. Will China bargain away its relationship with Iran in turn for a decreased American involvement in Asia? Maybe, but we should also consider that Russia and China are playing their own long game and could very well have some unseen ace cards up their sleeves.
It would be my conclusion that much of this negotiating has already been done behind the scenes as Trump as served as the middle man between the Anglo-American establishment and the multilateral mandates which are supported by the international banking interests. There are some within the existing Anglo-American who are attempting to hijack and derail this strategy. Some are within the governments of Europe, like the German government attempting to back track Merkel’s comments, and some within the American Congress who are trying to stop Trump’s massive arms deal with Saudi Arabia.
Also supporting the thesis presented here is the meeting between the new French President Macron and Russian President Putin. The meeting takes place on the 300th anniversary of Peter the Great’s diplomatic visit to France in 1717. Macron has stated that it is important for France to have a dialogue with Russia in order to resolve international issues, such as Syria and Ukraine. Interesting that it was those two nations which were specifically mentioned.
A clear trend and pattern is emerging which confirms much of what we have been reviewing for years now. The process is long and requires much patience to see the analysis through to the end. But the multilateral transformation is proceeding as designed with only slight variations and adjustments to accommodate real world truths and facts on the ground. – JC
