The Lost Hegemon
Whom the Gods Would DestroyBook - 2016
Europe and the West face a social crisis as a brutal war in Syria has spread around the world. ISIS, also known as Islamic State erupted violently onto the world stage in 2014 proclaiming its aim to create a global caliphate. War and terror in Syria have created a massive refugee crisis across Europe. In autumn 2015 Russia was invited to help defeat ISIS in Syria. That Russian military action signaled a new era in global politics. Washington no longer dominated the military world. The world was visibly moving towards a new world war, one claiming to have religion at its core. Islam was being instrumentalised as a weapon of war, but by whom? Few asked who was behind the IS terror or Al Qaeda. For that it would be necessary look back to the 1950's and the birth of a new American intelligence agency and their ties to the secret Muslim Brotherhood. What emerges is a picture so incredible few could imagine.
