Referring to the US Empire and its control of Europe, Engdahl writes:
...power is being lost – just look at Brexit. The EU is slowly going to dissolve one state after the other. All the measures had been taken to hold the union together but it’s not working. NATO just added chaos instead of offering stability. Now there is a very strong opposition in the EU countries to all kinds of Washington’s provocations against Russia. The foreign minister of Germany indicated this quite openly.
