Outflanking Mackinder – China’s Silk Road & Space

Yesterday and the day before, you’ll recall, I blogged about two strange statements coming out of the Middle East, the first from Russian Major General Igor Konshenko, and the second, appearing two days prior to Konshenkov’s remarks, from Iraqi Tansportation Minister Kazem Finjan. General Konshenkov made strange statements – clearly intended for Washington’s benefit (and perhaps for someone else’s as well) – that the Russian air and missile defense systems in Syria were operational, and that their range and capability to take out “all unidentified flying objects” would be a “surprise” to Washington (and whomever else the message was intended for). Minister Finjan, two days previously to this, made even stranger comments, based on the works of Zechariah Sitchin which he specifically referenced, that Iraq had been home to “extraterrestrial” spaceports some 7000 years ago. Prior to this, I noted, there were warnings from Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova, that “tectonic” consequences would ensue if Washington continued on its warpath, and I suggested she was literally referring to earthquake weapons and other non-conventional weapons of mass destruction, other than the well-known triad of nuclear, biological, or chemical WMDs.

Howsoever one parses these statements, they clearly carried deeper possible interpretations than the merely conventional or prosaic. These three statements, coming in such quick succession and in more or less the same temporal and geopolitical context, suggest that there is a much deeper, much more hidden, much more “non-conventional” reading of events in the Middle East than meets the eye.

With this backdrop in mind, I want to consider the following article by one of my favorite commentators and researchers, F. William Engdahl, shared by Mr. C.S.:

The Eurasian Century is Now Unstoppable

While there’s much food for thought in this article, I want to draw attention to one crucial observation that Mr. Engdahl makes:

The totality of the strategy behind Xi Jinping’s Eurasian One belt, One Road rail, sea and pipeline initiative, which is moving quietly and impressively forward, is transforming the world geopolitical map. In 1904 a British geographer, Sir Halford Mackinder, a fervid champion of the British Empire, unveiled a brilliant concept in a speech to the London Royal Geographical Society titled the Geographical Pivot of History. That essay has shaped both British and American global strategy of hegemony and domination to the present. It was complemented by US Admiral Alfred Thayer Mahan’s 1890 work, The Influence of Sea Power Upon History, which advocated “sea power,” stating that nations with domination of the seas, as the British Empire or later the USA, would dominate the world.

The One Belt, One Road, by linking all the contiguous land areas of Eurasia to the related network of strategic new or enlarged deep-water ports of OBOR’s Maritime Silk Road, has rendered US geopolitical strategy a devastating blow at a time the hegemony of America is failing as never in its short history. The Eurasian Century today is inevitable and unstoppable. Built on different principles of cooperation rather than domination, it just might offer a model for the bankrupt United States and the soon-bankrupt European Union, to build up true prosperity not based on looting and debt slavery.

Indeed, the Silk Road project does outflank MacKinder, for it effectively makes the Eurasian “world Island” impervious to sea power interdiction, the very basis of British, and now American, power and policy.

However, the project is under potential “outflanking” threat from…
