Imperialism & the New World Order

Program #GALG002. Recorded in Gombek, Malaysia on December 22, 2005.

Audio sample:
It was Bush the Elder who proudly proclaimed "a New World Order" after the First Gulf War. Some at the time expressed skepticism saying it was the old world order dressed up in new clothes. It was imperialism in the guise of globalization. With the collapse of the Soviet Union, the U.S. was the sole superpower. It was a unipolar world. The neocons saw this as an opportunity to extend American hegemony. In 2000 they came to power in a controversial election. It's worth recalling President George W. Bush's own words in his 2003 State of the Union address, "Throughout the 20th century, small groups of men seized control of great nations, built armies and arsenals, and set out to dominate the weak and intimidate the world."


George Galloway

George Galloway was a Respect Party member of parliament representing a seat in London. A 36-year member of the Labour Party, he was expelled after his opposition to the attack on Iraq. CNN called his May, 2005 U.S. Senate testimony, "a blistering attack on U.S. senators rarely heard in Washington." He is the author of Mr. Galloway Goes to Washington.
