“People like you are still living in what we call the reality-based community. You believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality. That’s not the way the world really works anymore. We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you are studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors, and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.” ~Senior Advisor to President George W. Bush, quoted in an article by Ron Susskind in 2004

This week on The Solari Report, The Saker joins me on our quarterly The Emerging Multipolar World to discuss the events in Syria.
We cover the latest allegations regarding chemical attacks, retaliatory missile strikes and then dig into the Trump Administration reversals regarding US policy in the Middle East.
1. Question: What is the US strategy to maintain a unipolar empire?
2. Question: What does control of Syria have to do with maintaining the US dollar as reserve currency?
3. Question: What are the roles of the UK, Israel, Iran, Russia and China?
4. Question: What is happening in the Ukraine and how does that relate to events in the Middle East.
Throughout this discussion, Saker expresses his concern that the possibility of the Neocon’s triggering a nuclear war is growing.

In Money & Markets this week I will discuss the latest in financial and geopolitical news from Sydney, Australia.
