Antiwar Radio: Pepe Escobar

This interview is excerpted from the KPFK 90.7 FM Los Angeles broadcast of February 11th. The original is available here.

Asia Times columnist Pepe Escobar discusses the Egyptian moment, a mash-up of the French Revolution and the Berlin Wall’s destruction; the Arab world’s reclaimed dignity, after humiliations in colonial and post-colonial times; and how culture and language barriers prevent the revolutionary spirit from spreading from the Mideast to the Central Asian “Stans,” despite the autocratic governments and Muslim populations common to both regions.
