The Boiling Frogs Presents Pepe Escobar

BFP Podcast Logo

Roving investigative journalist Pepe Escobar returns to our show and provides us with ‘real’ reportage on Syria and Iran. He discusses the narrow view and propaganda presented by the US government and media, and deconstructs the rehearsed messages and images presented by the mainstream media on the Syria conflict. Mr. Escobar talks about dueling psychological operations targeting Iran, the latest amateurish assassination attempts by rogue agents posing as agents of Iranian government, all carrying trademarks of Israeli false flag operations, the ‘real’ effects of the recent US-Israel operations and sanctions against Iran on Iran’s internal politics, and more!

EscobarPepe Escobar, born in Brazil is the roving correspondent for Asia Times and an analyst for The Real News Network. He is an investigative journalist with three decades of experience in covering politics and conflicts around the globe. He's been a foreign correspondent since 1985, based in London, Milan, Los Angeles, Paris, Singapore, and Bangkok. Since the late 1990s, he has specialized in covering stories and cases from the Middle East to Central Asia, including the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. He was in Afghanistan and interviewed the military leader of the anti-Taliban Northern Alliance, Ahmad Shah Masoud, a couple of weeks before his assassination. Mr. Escobar has made frequent visits to Iran and is the author of three must-read books: Globalistan: How the Globalized World is Dissolving into Liquid War, Red Zone Blues: A Snapshot of Baghdad During the Surge, and Obama Does Globalistan.

  1. So full of information the garden of ‘news drought’ drinks DEEP these conversations, swells hard again. Islamist/Syria”freedom Army”-your first reports there WELL remembered and referred to Sibel – funded especially by Saudis. The Saudi paper trail to 911 raises again, 911 itself AGAIN when will anyone in beltway be listening?? and anomalies around PR machine , gulf money smashing the Assad regime on the way to Iran. Washington. House of Saud, Back to Bush, vile BBC coverage. Al Jazeera PR/fakes, fakes fakes. the established narratives.’The Iran plan’ WILL happen after the election….no matter who gets elected?!. wow. the mullateriat :). The latest massacre in Afghanistan almost to the day of 44th ‘anniversary’ of My Lai…..the lone nut. Well. Thats not what the locals said.

    thank you so very much for your work.

  2. Most excellent Podcast! Thanks, Sibel, Peter and Pepe – for bringing clarity to these layered and complex issues as they unfold.

    Great one. I love Pepe Escobar and it’s good fun to listen to the three of you talking, there’s such a nice rapport there. Congratulations to Sibel as well on getting all these confirmations of your “global scoop” on the troops activity on the Syrian border. You heard it here first, people!

  4. Yes, Boiling Frogs Post is an excellent source for news and information you won’t get anywhere else.

    On the question of the seemingly stupid plots and ploys being devised by the PTB, one possible motivation of increasing the nationalization of the Iranian people is simply to have a singular enemy.

    We call the Germans “German” because Caesar started calling something like 13 different tribes with unintelligible languages “Germanic People”, in order to simplify the politics of war funding and support.

  5. BTW, I’d really like to see Mr. Escobar doing stand-up about world events 🙂
