Discuss this Rant at the Podcast Table inside the Diner
…A few days ago, my partner in Doom Surly put up an article from Pepe Escobar, one of our cross posting bloggers who covers the Geopolitical scene on the ground as a roving free lance reporter and writer. The article was titled “The Fall of a Superpower”
From the title and given Pepe’s general geopolitical focus, I figured this was going to be about the implosion of the FSoA Military.
