Pepe Escobar is correct in being against US imperialism but he seems to think that Chinese imperialism with its free trade is fine. The truth is that free trade or fair trade or whatever it is called is bad regardless of who is in control of the empire. Trade is simply a war on workers and everybody loses except the bankers. Sorry Pepe.
