Austrian media, TASS and Russian TV have confirmed that the Trump-Putin summit is planned for July 15 in Vienna. While we are still a long way from the ‘G3’ (U.S.-China-Russia) summit the Asia Times journalist Pepe “empire of chaos” Escobar sources and others are hinting at, or the G4 of USA-Russia-China-India alignment that the LaRouche Movement has advocated for years, the balance of power is clearly changing. China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) in particular is rapidly shifting the geopolitics in Europe, to the point that we are now seeing anti-Chinese government segments on prime time HBO comedy shows.
There is still enough time before the meeting planned for after the NATO summit in Brussels on July 11 and 12 for some sort of incident to be manufactured — such as a chemical weapons attack, or an alleged altercation between U.S. and Russian forces in Syria. Nonetheless, it appears as of this week that the so-called moderate Syrian rebels along the Golan Heights have been told not to expect any military intervention on their behalf, despite vague threats against Assad’s government liberating Syrian territory made by State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert and UN Ambassador Nikki Haley.

The tide may be turning against a second Cold War and toward a radical rethink of alliances and global trade. — JWSRead More
