In this interview, conducted by Deep Journal before the 4 November elections, Webster Tarpley expounds on the topic of his recently published books "Obama, The Postmodern Coup,The Making of a Manchurian Candidate" and "Barack Obama: The Unauthorized Biography". Does Obama represent a real change or is it the same old imperialism with cosmetic surgery?
See Part 1
Tarpley argues that there is more to Obama than his charismatic appearance. Exit the "neo-cons", the real power behind the throne is now Zbigniew Brzezinski whose policies, he claims, are far more dangerous and insane. There will be an immediate shift in the hit-list of countries, starting with Pakistan, widely expanding the theatre of war operations in the pursuit of a global geostrategic agenda where Russia and China are the ultimate targets. Tarpley foresees a catastrophic outcome for the entire world should Brzezinski’s plans be allowed to go through. Whether his views are correct for now is a matter of opinion and remains to be seen, but for the public debate it is relevant to take note of his facts and arguments. It would nevertheless appear that, so far, his analysis is being borne out by the recent developments in South West Asia.
