02/15/12 – Pepe Escobar – The Scott Horton Show

by | Feb 15, 2012 | Interviews

Globetrotting journalist Pepe Escobar discusses allegations that Iranian assassins tried to kill Israelis in Bangkok, Thailand; why the amateurish operation, and Israel’s history of frame-ups, leads him to believe it was a false-flag attack; the strange bedfellows uniting behind the Syrian opposition, including the Arab League, US, NATO and Al Qaeda; why Syrian religious minorities and the “business class” still support the Assad government; why Patrick Cockburn is right about Syria’s “Lebanisation” and descent into a prolonged sectarian civil war; and the Saudi tanks and made-in-USA tear gas that crushed the protests in Bahrain – and exposed the hypocrisy inherent in US “democracy building” foreign policy.
