for months Pepe Escobar covers the Brazilian Coup in preparation noticing specific details of an US-backed/driven Hybrid Warfare in Latin America to destroy „the neo-developmentalist project for Latin America – uniting at least some of the local elites, invested in developing internal markets, in association with the working classes“ and to spure a neoliberal restoration.“
The most important point of this attack is Brazil, a key member of the BRICS and the 7th largest economy in the world.
Quite bluntly David Ignatius, Washington Post Opinion writer, exposed the tools and aims of the Empire’s foreign policy to this effect:
“U.S. power flows from our unmatched military might, yes. Anything that expands the reach of U.S. markets – such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership in trade, for example – adds to the arsenal of U.S. power. But in a deeper way, it’s a product of the dominance of the U.S. economy.
Conversely, U.S. power is limited by measures that drive business away from America, or allow other nations to build a rival financial architecture that’s less encumbered by a smorgasbord of sanctions.”
