Escobar, Pepe
May 2009
Asia-Pacific Journal: Japan Focus;5/25/2009, Issue 21, p2
The author reflects on the global energy war across Eurasia and the Asia-Pacific region in 2009. He claims that the global war on terrorism overshadows the global energy war, which he considers far more important. He points out that despite the drastic fall in oil prices, energy is still what people would want to acquire. He claims that the war on terror is just a diversion for the energy war. He cites Zbigniew Brzezinski's idea of establishing strategically compatible partners in places where energy flows are strongest.
