01/04/11 – Eric Margolis – The Scott Horton Show

by | Jan 4, 2011 | Interviews

Eric Margolis, foreign correspondent and author of War at the Top of the World and American Raj, discusses how the secession of South Sudan could jeopardize the entire African continent’s colonial-drawn borders; considerable US influence in South Sudan that almost guarantees the new nation will be yet another American protectorate flush with oil; why controlling the world’s oil supplies has been a US foreign policy goal since WWII, when Axis countries were irreparably damaged by fuel supply shortages; the increasing US/China rivalry in resource-rich Africa; fundamentalist Christian missionary groups competing with Islamic groups for conversions in Africa; the incremental US stealth-occupation of Pakistan that threatens to become the boggiest of military quagmires; and why the US stands to lose substantial influence in Western Europe should NATO fail in Afghanistan.
