Welcome to the Empire of Chaos

chaosOp-Ed by Ulson Gunnar

When globe-trotting journalist and keen geopolitical analyst Pepe Escobar refers to the United States as the “Empire of Chaos,” it may seem like hyperbole. But upon looking deeper at both Escobar’s coverage and the United States’ foreign policy itself, it is perhaps the most accurate title for this political entity and its means of operation, perhaps more apt than the name “The United States” itself.

In the wake of World War II, the US and its allies set out upon the reclamation of the West’s lost colonies, many of which took advantage of Europe’s infighting to either establish independence from their long-standing colonial masters, or begin the conflicts that would inevitably lead toward independence.

Perhaps the most well-known of these conflicts was the Vietnam War. The United States would involve itself in the dissolution of French Indochina at the cost of some 4 million lives in a conflict that would embroil not only Vietnam, but much of Southeast Asia, including Cambodia, Laos and Thailand. Covert coups and brutal insurgencies were underwritten by Washington across the planet, from the Middle East to South and Central America. And while this too seems chaotic, the goal always seemed to be the destruction of independent states, and the creation of viable client states.

These client states included the Shah’s Iran, Saudi Arabia, much, if not all of Western Europe and even to varying degrees, some of the enduring autocracies of the Middle East until for one reason or another they fell out of favor with Washington. The idea was to create an international order built upon the concept of globalization.

Globalization was meant to be a system of vast interdependencies governed by international institutions created by and for the United States and more specifically, the special interests that have long since co-opted America’s destiny.

However, the concept of globalization seems to have neglected any anticipation for rapid technological advances in both terms of information technology and manufacturing. There are very few real interdependencies left to stitch this vision of globalization together with many of them being artificially maintained at increasing costs. The idea of using sanctions to ‘starve’ a nation by isolating it from this global order has been exposed as more or less impotent by nations like Iran and North Korea who have sustained themselves for decades despite everything besides air and gravity being denied to them.

Indeed, nations understand the value of self-sufficiency in both terms of politics and the basic necessities which constitute any state’s infrastructure. Russia’s recent encounter with Western sanctions has caused it to look not only eastward, but inward, to secure its interests and to transcend sanctions wholly dependent on the concept of “globalization.”

As this “carrot and stick” method of working the world into Wall Street and Washington’s international order becomes less effective, some of the uglier and less elegant tools of the West’s geopolitical trade have taken a more prominent role on the global stage. It appears that if the West cannot rule this international order built upon the concepts of globalization, it will rule an international order built on chaos.

The Empire of Chaos

The unipolar geopolitical concepts that underpin globalization have eroded greatly. Nations no longer have to pick between an existence of lonely isolation and socioeconomic atrophy or subordination within this international order. Instead, they can pick to associate with the growing community of what the West calls “rogue states.” So large has this list grown that the US may soon find itself and Western Europe the last remaining members of its failed international order.

The real danger for an aspiring global empire is to find a planet that has suddenly begun to move in tandem out from under its shadow and moving on without them in relative peace and prosperity. To prevent this from happening we have seen a concerted effort focused on disrupting and destroying this emerging multi-polar world.

In Europe, the refugee crisis is being used to polarize European society and allow governments to increase their power domestically and further justify wars abroad. Along Western Europe’s borders, facing Russia, a relative stable balancing act maintained by former Soviet territories attempting to benefit from associating with both East and West has been turned into outright war.

Throughout North Africa and the Middle East, any nation that even so much as slightly resembles a sovereign nation state has been undermined and attempts to violently overthrow them pursued. The goal is no longer to create viable client states, but rather to Balkanize and leave them in ruins so as to never contest Western ambitions in the region again. This can be observed clearly in Libya, Syria, Iraq and Yemen where none of the groups backed by the US and its allies could ever realistically run a functioning nation state.

And in Asia, in state after state, those leading political parties marked by Washington for future client status are being removed from power and their leaders, long backed by the US, being either exiled or jailed.

Where these political gambits are crumbling, a steady stream of violence perpetrated by terrorist groups not even indigenous to the region has begun to build in strength.

Divide and Conquer

Divide and conquer is a geopolitical maxim that has served as empire’s bread and butter since the beginning of recorded human civilization. When the British could not subdue a targeted territory just beyond the grasp of its empire, it would divide and destroy them. A ruined nation that can be plundered and trampled may not be as desirable as a loyal client state run by a British viceroy, but it is better than a pocket of national sovereignty serving as an example for others of the merits of resisting “Great Britain.”

Today, it is clear that the idea of creating a client state in the midst of a general public increasingly aware of the features and fixations of modern empire is becoming ever more tenuous. Such client states are less likely to be accepted by a local population who, with minimum effort, can put up significant resistance against even the best funded of foreign proxies.

Globalism required more and more illusions to convince people they needed a global system controlled by far-off special interests to do what can now be done through advances in technology nationally and even locally. Now all that is left is the sowing of chaos to prevent people from leveraging this technology nationally and locally, to keep them divided and distracted for as long as possible, to perpetuate the West’s global hegemony for as long as possible.

Moving Beyond the Chaos

An empire built on chaos is not meant to last. Chaos, like the international order of globalization that preceded it, requires illusions and manipulation to perpetuate itself. Unfortunately, stirring chaos among a population is a lot easier than convincing them of the non-existent interdependencies of globalization.

Nations leading the way out of this chaos include those who have suffered the most because of it. Their leaders have realized the necessity of closing off the vectors through which the West feeds this chaos within their borders, which include socioeconomic disparity, foreign-funded propaganda, foreign-funded nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and of course extremist groups used to carry out the actual terrorism and agitation required to create the worst sort of chaos.

Russia and China in particular have been busy creating alternatives not only for the remnants of the West’s globalization racket, but alternatives for the unipolar world the West was trying to create. They are both looking within and across their borders to create a patchwork of nations ready to move beyond the chaos and toward a more widespread balance of power.

By in turn, placing sanctions on the West, Russia is forcing itself to not only produce raw materials for export, but to become a more capable producer of finished goods. By doing so, Russia has begun a process that turns America’s sanctions game back onto itself. While many believe Washington drives American policy, it is unrealistic to discount Wall Street’s role. By cutting the corporations trading on Wall Street down to size, one cuts down their unwarranted power they wield on the global stage.

Nations choosing to trade rather than being forced to because of an ungainly system of globalization ensures that any given people have more control over not only what they buy and sell, but how and where their natural resources are used.

With the Empire of Chaos in terminal decline and with a new multi-polar order emerging, the only question left to ask is; will chaos spread and destroy faster than this new multi-polar order can be built? It is certainly a close race pushing both sides into acts of increasingly unimaginable confrontation.

    Chaos is the consequence of rejecting Yahweh’s immutable morality as reflected in His Ten Commandments and their respective statutes and judgments.

    For more, google free online book “Law and Kingdom: Their Relevance Under the New Covenant.”

    • You mean those immoral commandments of this biblical psychopath Yahweh ?

      You are a spammer. Shove your propaganda, it’s not wanted here.

      Ted R. Weiland’s description of Yahweh’s immutable morality is far divorced from the Savior’s gospel of love and forgiveness. Makes me wonder which kingdom Weiland thinks he’s an ambassador of.

        The “Ten” are apparently offensive to the point that many would that they be hidden from view,,,perhaps ten is simply to large a number….

        ALL LAW can be segregated in their primary categories in the 10 commandment Outlines. all can be summed up in violation towards God or Man, but the bottom line, break one you really break them all. Every LAW in Scripture hinges on the harmony of the scriptures which is ALL true, and you can find the meat of the matter with the requires STATUES and JUDGMENTS – you study all three and you will see the Morality of the 10 Commandments come alive as category reservoirs of life.

        As a thorn goeth up into the hand of a drunkard, so is a parable in the mouth of fools.

        Matt 22….Thou shalt love יהוה thy Elohim with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

  • John Cook

    Good article, only thing I would add is that the author should extend his thesis back to include the second world war. It was not the ‘good war’ we winners imagine, after all the victors write the history books. Germany successfully broke the sanctions that were crippling it by creating and using their own debt free money and bartering with the world – Japan created their ‘Co-Prosperity Sphere” and freed most of south-east Asia from colonialism. They were both brutally punished for their attempts at independence from the ‘system’. BTW The HoloHoax was a lie – fabricated to demonize the Germans and transfer Billions to Israel and there was absolutely no need to Nuke Japan, it was pure vindictiveness.

    • Brett

      Yeah, Japan surrended and still got nuked. Shows you the real intentions of the USA?

      • John Cook

        They unnecessarily killed a LOT of civilians in Germany and Japan with carpet fire bombing. The fire bombing of Tokyo killed far more than the nukes and was equally useless militarily. Not to mention the barbarity of the treatment of Germany after the war was over. More Germans died after the war than during it.

        • Fred Bastiat

          Very true. Seems to me that FDR and Churchill were among the architects of WWII. My issue with history is that I listened well in public school and read on my own very biased history. Now what I know about history is not of much value, which means I have to question everything: among everything is the “Good War”. Yes, Hitler was another douche terrorist psychopath, but by all appearances upon splitting Poland Russia and Germany were headed toward a bitter war: it took FDR and Churchill not only to get the bus speeding, but then to push their countries in front of it.

          It was a fallacy that an invasion of Japan would have been needed. As Brett points out Japan was either surrendering or surrendered. Either way, there was no military objective. FDR had a hard time finding targets given the massive fire bombing of most major Japanese cities. It was a matter of political hegemony.

          It seems to me that there is a far more monstrous military industrial complex, bound together western coalitions of the killing, collapsing western currencies, sadly creating a recipe for more war. Wait for the next false flag, right around the corner.

          • John Cook

            Churchill was an incredibly evil man – he was bailed out financially between the wars by Tribe members and sponsored to do the bidding of the them. He paid off with ww2, hiding the fact that Hitler tried everything to prevent the war with a people he regarded as brothers and natural allies of the German people against Communism. He even managed to disguise Hitlers gesture of peace at Dunkirk as just the actions of a fool.
            For Hitler it was all about the invasion he saw coming of western Europe by Stalin – much too many details to go into here, the history has been too comprehensively lied about. But you can make a big start on unpacking it by, first of all, realizing that the ‘Holocaust’ is a giant, malevolent LIE. No Tribe members were gassed, no soap was made ,no lampshades were created…
            The Nuremberg trials were a farce, the German officers were forced to confess to false charges (over 90% arrived at the trials with crushed testicles, and their families were threatened) so they made up (impossible) stories. Like the use of diesel engines to gas people, which is not possible because diesel engines simply don’t emit carbon monoxide.
            Once you find out about the HoloHoax you are in a position to at least Start to question the image of Hitler as a psychopathic killer. Believe it or not he was actually an intelligent, urbane and charming gentleman. His major error was underestimating the level of control of England by the Tribe and their ruthlessness.
            The German people were not that crazy after all.

          • Fred Bastiat

            I wad going to just leave it alone, but I’ll give you my two cents. I think the fever that overtook the Germans was real, the carnage was not so different than other genocidal events made possible by the religion of government. I’m willing to concede my history has been shaped by propoganda, but I’ve made real efforts to understand truths. I seek out alternative historians, writings of others present, etc. The evidence of the Holocaust is authentic, as was the starvation in Russia, the poverty in East Germany, the subjugation of the North Korean people. The psychopaths that purposefully ascend to control of governments are everywhere. My point is simply that there is strong evidence to suggest FDR and Churchill manipuled a war that could have been avoided, except that hegemony and global interventionism was too attractive to each. There is strong evidence that, if left alone, two tyrants (Hitler and Stalin) were headed toward a brutal war. Who knows the outcome. I’ve read as much of the claims about there being no holocaust as I needed: it is not substantiated and is itself often a plea to authoritarianism and statism. I’ll say again, the physical evidence that remains today, the video interviews, photos, and countless testimonials of German people, German soldiers, other nations soldiers, Hitlers own words and plans, German records, and survivors provide to me overwhelming evidence of the great evil of nationalism.

          • John Cook

            Fred – My (extensive) reply is awaiting ‘moderation’ so you may or may not be permitted to read it. I just wanted you to know that it’s written. They usually permit me to speak but may take a day or so.

          • Fred Bastiat

            Looks like it just posted, I’ll read.

          • Fred Bastiat

            As a side note, diesels do produce carbon monoxide, just not nearly as much. The exhaust pipe box trucks used by Germans to kill people were often time suffocating people prior to killing them with carbon monoxide – but this was not because of the low diesal carbon monixode, but from the gunning of gasoline engines. I believe only the Russians were using much in the way of diesel – despite its many advantages. This likely has more to do with the military industrial complex in most nations at the time. Retooling was not in their plan.

            As a truth seeker, I must acknowledge science and I cannot deny carbon monoxide exaust from diesel and the use of gasonline engines in German trucks and even the Panzer.

      Not vindictive, it was a demonstration of the power nuclear weapons. Truman, who ordered the drops, had for decades been carrying around a Tennyson poem in his wallet describing how a horrific weapon of mass destruction would force the world to accept global governance (the term commonly used in those days was The Federation of Mankind). Ref. Doomsday Men; The Real Dr. Strangelove and Dream of The Superweapon, book author P.D. Smith.

      • John Cook

        Thanks for that correction Blue, I thought about how inadequate ‘Vindictiveness’ was to describe the true reasons and decided to use it for the sake of simplicity – I was already off subject.
        You are absolutely correct, that was the most important reason, but also they wanted to test the two types of bombs they had built (the ‘cannon’ type and the ‘implosion’ type) on real people.
        I don’t know why they wanted to wipe out the Japanese Christian community but they also achieved that with the nukes as a ‘bonus’ apparently.

        • blue579

          Good reminder about the Japanese Christian community. We know the Globalists ultimately wanted to weaken and eviscerate aspects of Christianity that have stood in their way of totalitarian world government, chipping the masses, etc. There is a UN Agenda 21 document with a list of items that are “unsustainable” and need to be eliminated and on that list I noticed Christianity along with private property, etc.

          Several years ago I read some exchanges between Thomas Jefferson and Thomas Paine in the form of letters and they concurred that of all the world’s major religions Christianity’s fundamental principles protected human freedom more than any other. Little wonder TPTB began capturing and controlling religions early on.

          • Nathan Hale

            Thankyou for concise thoughtful rendering this very complex subject.
            Few have the patience or fortitude to plumb the murky dismal depths of the chaotic combinations that manufacture the graven images foisted by the possessed.
            Surely the perpetuation of the notion that man is better off as a subject bond servant rather than sovereign is an undertaking of seemingly endless subterfuge crafted to monumental proportions.
            But then people by nature prefer simplicity, and when the deception is claimed to be simple, like “do not pay attention to that man behind the curtain” …well its so much easier to take the road that someone else has told us to take..

          • blue579

            Completely agree and very well said, you have a gift with words. Thanks also for the good word. It’s heartening to encounter an enlightened thinker in the catacombs of this Matrix we find ourselves in.

          • John Cook

            ANYTHING that underlies western civilization has to be destroyed. Christian morality obviously has to go, but also the family, beautiful life affirming art, coherent community and sexual mores. Hence we have ‘feminism’, ‘modern art’, ‘multiculturalism’ and LGBT bullshit – ALL of which have Tribe members as their ‘leading lights’.
            The Tribe may not be the ultimate source of this thing we are fighting but they definitely are at least its foot-soldiers.

          • blue579

            Absolutely.

      • tiger

        Exactly. It was a weapon test on victims already demonized by the West and also a warning to “Russia” not to meddle in the US/UK plans for Asian hegemony.
        As the Mafia say at every assassination, “Nothing personal, strictly business.”

        • blue579

          Great analogy with the mafia quote because at their very core, the Global Elite have a mafia structure and code. The part about intimidating Russia is what we were told our entire lives growing up. However, it’s a myth, part of the apex elite N-dimensional chess series of operations to exert mind control over the masses. From Sutton’s impeccable research, we not only know the western apex elites funded and aided the rise of the Bolsheviks and the Soviets, supported Stalin, and transferred advanced military and industrial technology continuously all the way through at least the Carter administration (under his NSA Kissinger), we also know from the research of James Perloff the US elites and Russian elites collaborated behind the curtain to set up and then carry out the Korean war under the auspices of a UN action, despite the fact that the Soviets could have protected their interests as members of the UN Security Council and vetoed the “police action”. Their UN official decided to NOT attend the vote. The goal of the Globalists was to empower the UN as a military force and to end the requirement of the US congress being the branch of government to authorize war with a declaration – and there hasn’t been a declaration since WWII. The deplorable way MacArthur was treated when he realized US elites were assisting the Communists, esp. Russians, to the detriment of US troops and then voiced his concerns is another aspect few are aware of. Please consider watching Perloff’s brilliant deconstruction in the 26 min interview in the link. Keep connecting the dots and it then becomes clear why TPTB allowed the Cuban missile crisis to unfold – it was theater as they already had a high level Mafia relationship with the Soviet leadership who by then knew well the agenda of the mega scale geopolitical Hegelian dialectic maneuvers. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KF4JxvE-ckc

            Brilliant! Great research Blue, thank you, it’s not that often I hear new stuff that is so credible.
            Re your comments on the mafia – it also ties in. The original Italian Mafia was apparently created by Mazzini, the free mason and Illuminati bigwig. He’s the guy Albert Pike wrote that famous letter too in 1871 about the coming plans for the three world wars that was so amazingly accurate, at least for the first two.

    No mention of the International Banksters and how China, Russia, Iran, et al are going full on techno totalitarian – esp. China leading the way? Or how the NWO under the control of the UN is to be multipolar according to the Globalists’ own formal proposals and internal documents in which they state the new BRICS bank (which is under the control of the Rothschilds’ BIS) is “A DREAM COME TRUE” = a UN document.

  • Herbert Dorsey

    I always enjoy reading Pepe Escobar’s explanation of global affairs. And, in view of its foreign policies, “The Empire of Chaos” is a very accurate depiction for the U.S. The United states learned from the original Empire of Chaos – Briton. Briton often spread chaos throughout its colonies to make them easier to rule and in other countries in order to acquire them as colonies or client states, as thoroughly documented in David Livingstone’s book “Terrorism and the Illuminati”.

    For example, British agent Hempher contacted Abdul Wahhab and trained and paid Wahhab to create the Wahhabi extremist form of Islam. This was done to split Arabia from Turkey. Eventually Wahhab had a sufficient following to claim that he was the true leader of Islam and he declared a jihad against the Ottoman Sultan. Briton also allied itself with the house of Saud, who were enemies of the Ottoman Turk rulers of Arabia because they were bandits. Wahhabism, the Sauds and Lawrence of Arabia were finally able to split Arabia from Turkey. England rewarded the house of Saud by making them the rulers of their client state, Saudi Arabia. The British also created the Salafi militant form of Islam in Egypt and later used the Salafis to guard the Suez Canal. The Wahhabis and Salifis form the Islamic base for terrorism today.

    Actually, the U.S. didn’t actually learn these type of tactics from England. These tactics were foisted on the U.S. via the Council on Foreign Relations, which was created by the British Round Table secret society set up by Cecil Rhoades, as documented in “The Secret History of the New World Order”. The Council on Foreign Relations has a sister organization in England called the Royal Institute for International Affairs. And, the Council on Foreign Relation virtually runs U.S. Foreign policy.
