Michael Sullivan discusses his book, the American Adventurism Abroad, on how the United States, over the past 60 years, encompassing both the Cold War and the “war on terror,” came to succeed the earlier European imperial powers as arbiter of the international economic system. He compares the current expansionist policies of the United States with those of earlier empires, and makes judgments about the outcome of those activities. He tells us how the two rubrics of “fighting communism” and “war against terrorism” are essentially cover stories for a policy of global power projection in pursuit of world hegemony. Professor Sullivan talks about American neo-colonialism in the Western Hemisphere during the era of gunboat diplomacy, how America’s hostile reactions to the 1979 events in Iran and Afghanistan drove the creation of America’s expanding Middle East, the not so clear identity and objectives of NATO today, and more.

“The interests behind the Bush Administration, such as the Council on Foreign Relations, The Trilateral Commission – founded by Brzezinski for David Rockefeller – and the Bilderberger Group, have prepared for and are now moving to implement open world dictatorship within the next five years. They are not fighting against terrorists. They are fighting against citizens.” – Dr. Johannes B. Koeppl, PhD

“Eurasia is…the chessboard on which the struggle for global primacy continues to be played.”
In its annual report to Congress on the Chinese military this week, the U.S. Department of Defense “voiced alarm over China’s military buildup,” with particular emphasis on what was described as the nation “investing heavily in ballistic and cruise missile capabilities that could one day pose a challenge to U.S. dominance in the western Pacific.” 
The report, originally to have been presented on March 1, bears the title of Military and Security Developments Involving the People’s Republic of China 2010

The Technological Revolution and the Future of Freedom, Part 1
There is a new and unique development in human history that is taking place around the world; it is unprecedented in reach and volume, and it is also the greatest threat to all global power structures: the ‘global political awakening.’ The term was coined by Zbigniew Brzezinski, and refers to the fact that, as Brzezinski wrote:
For the first time in history almost all of humanity is politically activated, politically conscious and politically interactive. Global activism is generating a surge in the quest for cultural respect and economic opportunity in a world scarred by memories of colonial or imperial domination.

March 31, 2010 — In this episode, Empire asks if US-Iranian relations have taken a turn for the worse. The time for hands extended in friendship has been replaced by menacing fists, as both sides ratchet-up the rhetoric. Will this mini cold war continue, giving both the US and Iran time and face to get back to the negotiating table, or will the bellicose words lead to a confrontation that neither side wants? Empire finds out.

Zbigniew Brzezinski on Afghanistan and the American strategy for Eurasia and the world (Part 1)
Zbigniew Brzezinski is a Polish-American political scientist, geostrategist, and statesman who served as United States National Security Advisor to President Jimmy Carter from 1977 to 1981. Known for his hawkish foreign policy at a time when the Democratic Party was increasingly dovish, he is a foreign policy “realist”.

In the face of total global economic collapse, the prospects of a massive international war are increasing. Historically, periods of imperial decline and economic crisis are marked by increased international violence and war. The decline of the great European empires was marked by World War I and World War II, with the Great Depression taking place in the intermediary period.
Currently, the world is witnessing the decline of the American empire, itself a product born out of World War II. As the post-war imperial hegemon, America ran the international monetary system and reigned as champion and arbitrator of the global political economy.
