An avalanche of revelations from different directions (including President Obama himself!) came recently to reveal important elements of the real “imperial planning”, that is how even the strongest state in the world is sometimes manipulated by the most “radical”, “extremist” forces of the US and international establishment and in what purposes. They help us a lot make sense of what is happening in the world.
One of the more interesting documents are the Clinton cables, published by WikiLeaks. They shed light on the rationale behind the interventions in Syria and also to the gross misunderstanding and underestimation of the “Russian factor”, typical of the “un-historic” and triumphalist western elites after 1989.
