The Post-American World: Crooke, Escobar, Blumenthal, and Marandi


Even if you disagree violently with the viewpoints expressed in this discussion, it will inform you as to how the rest of the world thinks about the decline of US empire. 

The group is very diverse: a former UK diplomat, an Iranian professor educated in the West but now at University of Tehran, a progressive author and journalist (son of Clinton advisor Sidney Blumenthal) who spent 5 years reporting from Israel, and a Brazilian geopolitical analyst who writes for Asia Times (if I recall correctly, lives in Thailand).
Thirty years ago, the United States dominated the world politically, economically, and scientifically. But today? 
Watch this in-depth discussion with distinguished guests: 
Alastair Crooke - Former British Diplomat, Founder and Director of the Conflicts Forum 
Pepe Escobar - Brazilian Political Analyst and Author 
Max Blumenthal - American Journalist and Author from Grayzone 
Chaired by Dr. Mohammad Marandi - Professor at University of Tehran
