A recent statement by China and Egypt endorsing the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road Initiative will draw the ire of the Anglo-American establishment. Both are together known as the Belt and Road Initiative and represent the initial phase of the Eurasian Economic Union which is being promoted by Russia.
Readers of the article The Great War for Eurasia will understand that the battle for Eurasia is being fought and won on the outskirts of the Eurasian continent. The so-called civil war in Ukraine is far from over and has been left smouldering so it can be reignited when needed down the road. The unfolding situations in Syria and North Korea are fast moving towards some sort of transformation one way or the other.
Either both regions will see a semi-peaceful change and acceptance by the Anglo-American establishment towards allowing the continent to decide its own destiny within the Eurasia Union or they will collapse into all-out warfare which could drag on for years.
The announcement by China and Egypt on Belt and Road initiatives will ensure that Egypt gets further embroiled in the incremental strategies which represent the great war for Eurasia. A few months back both nations signed a currency sway arrangement which was meant to assist Egypt with its economic challenges and set the framework for integration into the emerging Eurasian Economic Union.
As such its not surprising that we now see Egypt being the target of ISIS terrorism as two Coptic churches were attacked last week. The short-trend and long-trend both strongly suggest that the interests of the Anglo-American establishment are benefiting from the promotion and increased use of terrorism to attack regions and nations which are attempting to align with Belt and Road initiatives.
There exists some confusion and conflicting information regarding the intentions of the Trump administration when it comes to its strategy on Eurasia. Western media never mentions the term Eurasia or the phrase Eurasian Economic Union, so viewers are left attempting to understand something for which they do not have all of the information and pertinent facts.
An example of this is the large bomb which the US just dropped on an ISIS camp in Afghanistan. It would appear that in some regions the US is assisting ISIS, such as the missile strike last week on Syria which was timed alongside a rebel and terrorist offensive against the Syrian forces, and the bombing of ISIS in Afghanistan.
Regardless of what we can imagine, there are too many moving pieces for any discernible and provable thesis. At least outside of the long-trend strategies from both sides when it comes to the Eurasian continent.
With China now bringing Egypt further into the fold the stakes for the Anglo-American establishment have been increased two-fold. The Sinai Peninsula is largely controlled by Egypt and the shipping lane will be of vital and strategic importance to the Maritime Silk Road Initiative.
If the Anglo-American establishment feels it is about to lose influence over the Sinai then the stage could be set for a serious escalation of tension from Egypt across to Israel and Palestine.
How this tension and escalation could look is not as difficult to determine as one would expect. We have the unfolding framework of the strategy which has been used for years. There will be more terrorist activity in Egypt and some form of event which will bring Israeli forces into confrontation with Hamas in Palestine and Southern Lebanon.
Keep a close eye on the news as further events begin to take place. Everything you read and watch should be filtered through the strategy for Eurasia. Both sides, the Anglo-American establishment, and the Eurasian group of nations, all have much to lose in the event the battle shifts either one way or the other. – JC
