Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In a way, yes, but it doesn't work as a model for the international system. We don't see that the primary conflicts are between the center and the periphery in general (like say EU+China+Japan+US vs Africa+the Mideast+Latin America), but between different center countries (like Japan vs. China), between different periphery countries (like Saudi Arabia vs. Syria) or between center and periphery countries (like the US vs Iraq).

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
