Imperialism on the March: Africa, Syria, and Beyond

September 17, 2015 at 1:46 AM

Eric Draitser appears on WBAI 99.5 FM (NYC) for part 2 of his interview on imperialism in the world today. He describes in detail what the US and its neocolonial NATO allies are doing in Africa, with close attention to the grand strategy of militarily checking the economic influence of China. Draitser examines some of the volatile conflicts on the continent, attempting to trace how they relate to the US-NATO regional and global hegemonic agenda. From there, he provides his analysis of Syria and the US role in the rise of ISIS/ISIL, as well as Washington’s militarization of Latin America in order to stifle its independence and growing alliances with the non-western world. Finally, Draitser touches on the current situation in Haiti and the grand strategy of containing China through the Asia Pivot and the Trans-Pacific Partnership. All this and much much more in this wide-ranging interview.
