Grand strategy and the long-term agendas of nations fascinate us. We thus devote today's post solely to a profound and recent analysis by Pepe Escobar of the great shift away from the Western sphere into the Eurasian heartland of Russia, China, India and Iran, yet sadly unrecognized in its historic importance and significance by Western Media. We are blind.
Whichever way this drama unfolds it still represents the new world alignments that will utterly change our ways of living and perceiving the world for years and decades to come .

Let’s start with the geopolitical Big Bang you know nothing about, the one that occurred just two weeks ago. Here are its results: from now on, any possible future attack on Iran threatened by the Pentagon (in conjunction with NATO) would essentially be an assault on the planning of an interlocking set of organizations -- the BRICS nations (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa), the SCO (Shanghai Cooperation Organization), the EEU (Eurasian Economic Union), the AIIB (the new Chinese-founded Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank), and the NDB (the BRICS' New Development Bank) -- whose acronyms you’re unlikely to recognize either. Still, they represent an emerging new order in Eurasia.
