Escobar: Central Asia Is The Prime Battlefield In The New Great Game

• Zero Hedge - Tyler Durden

Authored by Pepe Escobar via The Cradle,

The historical Heartland – or Central Eurasia – already is, and will continue to be, the prime battlefield in the New Great Game, fought between the United States and the China-Russia strategic partnership.  

The original Great Game pitted the British and Russian empires in the late 19th century, and in fact, never got away: it just metastasized into the US-UK entente versus the USSR, and, subsequently, the US-EU versus Russia. 

According to the Mackinder-designed geopolitical game conceptualized by imperial Britain back in 1904, The Heartland is the proverbial "pivot of History," and its re-energized 21st century historical role is as relevant as in centuries ago: a key driver of emerging multipolarity.
