Some of yesterday’s Muslim clients (for example, the Taliban) are today’s enemies. The new military alliance in Afghanistan is built around rival tribal warlords who live off contraband, drug trafficking and booty from local wars.

The apparent hypocrisy or double standard of the imperial elites is only in the eyes of a beholder who mistakenly believes the propaganda of empire and now feels betrayed by the switch in imperial clients.
This crisis is manifest with regard to the projects of development and globalization but is particularly sharp as concerns the new imperialist project. With regard to the development project, the crisis of the Left is manifest in the turn many leftists have taken away from the realities of class and state (and the need to confront this power through direct, collective action) and towards alternative forms of development and local power. In this turn, the social Left, in the form of non-governmental organizations (rather than political parties or socio-political movements) has knowingly or unwittingly abandoned the confrontationalist politics of direct action in exchange for an intermediary role vis-à-vis the poor.

Written in the first flush of military victory in the first Gulf War, the document projected the US-dominated military coalition as a basis for stable, long-term empire building. Predictably (Petras and Morley 1995), this NWO failed to materialize. The wartime alliance weakened, boycotts of adversaries were undermined and while the Empire advanced in the Balkans it was challenged in the Middle East, Latin America and the streets of Europe and the US.
