Oil pipeline wars, terrorism, state-sponsored religious sectarian violence, and the corruption that pulls the strings for the new cold war in the Middle East is detailed by Pepe Escobar. From the political and financial connections between Russia, China and Iran, to going behind the scenes of 9/11, the rise of the Da’ish and more, we connect the dots on oil, influence, and the permanent war being waged over oil. Will Russia be the threat to the US it is being presented as? We separate misinformation from the cloaked reality in this uncensored Buzzsaw interview, hosted by Sean Stone.
Pepe Escobar is the roving correspondent for Asia Times/Hong Kong, an analyst for RT and TomDispatch, and a frequent contributor to websites and radio shows ranging from the US to East Asia. His latest book, just out, is Empire of Chaos (Nimble Books, 2014).
