Even as globalization and the imperial overreach of the US/NATO empire violently impose planetary rule, the US and Europe endorse, support and protect ethnic/religious cleansing and tribal warfare. They do this for very cynical reasons: divide and conquer. Controlling thousands of ethnic enclaves that hate each other but accept a tiny minority of ruling elites to run things, is the ideal situation as far as this reincarnation of earlier European empires is concerned. But this is also backfiring. The same forces being encouraged by the ruling elites to control the 'peasants' is catching fire at the very heart in this huge imperial conglomerate. This is all connected with the concept of 'free trade' and 'international banking'. There is a cultural war brewing. And it is very explosive.
