The new European ‘arc of instability’, by Pepe Escobar

The European Council on Foreign Relations and Berlin think-tank Friedrich Ebert Stiftung have just reached more or less the same conclusion.

NEW ‘ARC OF INSTABILITY’ IN DA HOUSE

The European Council on Foreign Relations and the Berlin think tank Friedrich Ebert Stiftung have reached more or less the same conclusion.

If the stand-off between the EU and Russia over Ukraine is not solved, the EU could face, up to 2030, a military buildup in eastern Europe; a new arms race with NATO as a protagonist; and a semi-permanent “zone of instability” from the Baltic to the Balkans and the Black Sea.

What these two think tanks DON’T and WON’T ever acknowledge is that a new European “arc of instability” – from the Baltic to the Black Sea, as myself and other independent analysts have stressed – is EXACTLY what the Empire of Chaos is working on to prevent closer Eurasia integration.

Check out the build-up towards the new “arc of instability” – including decisions taken at NATO’s summits in Lisbon and Wales – when you read Empire of Chaos.
