Asia Times journalist Pepe Escobar discusses why war and foreign policy aren’t issues in this year’s presidential election; how Syria has become a battleground in Middle East power politics; the Arab Spring hijacking; US fears about high-level Egypt/Iran talks and improving relations; indications President Obama has ruled out direct US intervention in Syria; how a Greater Kurdistan would balkanize four countries and aid the US/Israel divide and conquer strategy for the region; and the Turkish army’s questionable loyalty and effectiveness.
