First we reach into the SOS program archive grab bag for an
interview with Lutz Klevemann in 2004 about his book, “The New
Great Game, Blood and Oil in Central Asia.” (www.newgreatgame.com)
Lutz’s predictions are haunting now.
Then we follow with an interview featuring Richard Maybury,
(www.richardmaybury.com) publisher of the “Early Warning Report,”
which accurately predicted in the early 1990s that Central Asia was
the world’s upcoming hot spot, aptly naming the region “Chaostan.”
Last week an Idaho man reported to prison for managing a wetland

Values Alliance guests. (www.idahovaluesalliance.com)
