Stephen Bannon likened China, Turkey, and “Persia” to the Axis powers of World War II.
What we’re seeing today is China, Persia, and Turkey — three ancient civilizations — coming together to form a new axis,” Bannon said, using the name for Iran that faded from popular use in 1935. “It’s confronting the Christian West and also a big part of Islam that is tied to the West. You’re starting to see this form every day like in the 1930s. You’re starting to see it crystallize more and more.”
