Nuclear War, Coming to a City Near You!
I don’t mean to sound alarmist folks, but we are headed for war, not just another CIA induced asymmetrical drawn-out geostrategic war in the Middle East for control of oil fields and pipeline routes, as bloody and insane as those regional wars are, but the big one—World War III. It’s looking more like a certainty, especially to those of us who have seen this all before. The bankster-owned Mockingbird Media is fomenting four potential wars at once—Russia, China, North Korea and Iran. Not to worry though, as we are told over and over, the USA is the world’s only true super power, so this will be a breeze.
In trying to think of a reason why the financial global overlords would want WWIII, it occurred to me why wouldn’t they want WWIII? First, we all know war is very, very profitable. I have documented the meteoric rise in wealth by such companies as Blackwater and Halliburton after 9/11 in my book Youtopia, and I barely scratched the surface. In fact some of the wealthiest real estate in the US of A is in the military industrial complex gated communities in the swamp region of Virginia and Washington DC.
From John Avalon, the Daily Beast July 19, 2010
The top-secret world the government created in response to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, has become so large, so unwieldy and so secretive that no one knows how much money it costs, how many people it employs, how many programs exist within it or exactly how many agencies do the same work. These are some of the findings of a two-year investigation by The Washington Post that discovered what amounts to an alternative geography of the United States, a Top Secret America hidden from public view and lacking in thorough oversight. After nine years of unprecedented spending and growth, the result is that the system put in place to keep the United States safe is so massive that its effectiveness is impossible to determine.
The proliferation of military-industrial complex contractors has helped propel the D.C. metro area to include seven of the top 10 wealthiest counties in the United States. Contra Snowden’s formal education, five of the top six counties for college-educated workers are in the D.C. metro area. The overlap between the two is not surprising: Loudoun, Arlington, and Fairfax counties in Virginia are particularly plush places to be in 2013.
Why wouldn’t the banksters continue fomenting ultra-profitable wars, especially considering there has been no public outrage, or whimper, after GW Bush’s Secretary of Defense announced THE DAY BEFORE 9/11 that the Pentagon couldn’t not track nor account for some $2.3 trillion dollars? Of course this news would have been met with outrage had it not been for the next day’s tragedies.
You’d think in a country devoted to the rule of law, to truth and justice, the people, who continually recite how they hail from the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave, would have demanded to know how this monumental theft occurred during the reign of Pentagon Comptroller, Dov Zakheim, one of the authors of the Project for the New American Century document the year before that virtually called for a “Catastrophic and Catalyzing Event Like a New Pearl Harbor, in conceiving how to get the populace to approve of their grand geo-strategic schemes that became operational the day after 9/11.
Any serious effort at transformation must occur within the larger framework of U.S. national security strategy, military missions and defense budgets. The United States cannot simply declare a “strategic pause” while experimenting with new technologies and operational concepts. Nor can it choose to pursue a transformation strategy that would decouple American and allied interests. A transformation strategy that solely pursued capabilities for projecting force from the United States, for example, and sacrificed forward basing and presence, would be at odds with larger American policy goals and would trouble American allies.
Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor. Domestic politics and industrial policy will shape the pace and content of transformation as much as the requirements of current missions.
But oil and war profits are not the biggest reason this time. No, follow the money, not trillions in weapons, oil, and opium money, that’s just bonus money. No, I’m talking about REAL money, as in the sole exclusive self-granted privilege by the international banksters to hold a monopoly on creating and lending money to their host countries, which is why we always find Goldman Sachs banksters at the head of every administration.
Understanding how this monopoly is their sole source of power gives us a clue as to why the US bankster media precipitously reinforces the meme: Russia and China, bad, USA good. Many think the invasion of Crimea by Russia in 2014 started the new hostile attitudes, but that event was hastened by a US backed fascist overthrow of Ukraine’s government earlier that year, engineered by Hillary Clinton’s spokesperson Victoria Nuland. From the link’s timelines.
December 13, 2013 – As if intent on providing incontrovertible evidence of US involvement in Ukraine, Assistant US Secretary of State for Europe and Eurasia Victoria Nuland proudly told a meeting of the International Business Conference sponsored by the US-Ukrainian Foundation that the US had ‘invested’ more than $5 billion and ‘five years’ worth of work and preparation” in achieving what she called Ukraine’s ‘European aspirations.” Having just returned from her third trip to Ukraine in five weeks, Nuland boasted of her ‘coordinated high level diplomacy’ and a more than two hour ‘tough conversation’ with Yanukovych. Already familiar with Nuland as former Secretary Clinton’s spokesperson at State, one can imagine her discourteous tone and manner when she says she made it “absolutely clear” to Yanukovych that the US required “immediate steps” …to “get back into conversation with Europe and the IMF.”
When most people are not informed by their beloved and overly trusted media that Russia has bases in the Black Sea and Syria, and most American consumers don’t know how US-led NATO has been surrounding Russia with missile systems, allegedly to counter the mighty Iranian threat, then perhaps too many people are drastically overreacting to the dire Russian threat.
Prior to the Ukrainian/Crimean incidents Russia, China, et al negotiated a trade agreement that literally threatens the Almighty Dollar as world reserve currency. Called the BRICS Agreement for Brazil, Russia, India, China and South America. An excerpt by Jordan Totten, December 22, 2014 in Forbes.
At the summit, Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff stated the BRICS nations “are among the largest in the world and cannot content themselves in the middle of the 21st century with any kind of dependency.” Last June, Sergey Glazyev, Vladimir Putin’s chief economic advisor, published an article outlining the need for an international anti-dollar alliance. He called upon allies to eliminate the dollar from international trade and trend toward depleting them from currency reserves. Recent dollar-less BRICS energy deals, currency swaps and foreign direct investment indicate that trend is taking place.
If you’ve studied the history of money and evolution of banking monopolies, you will have already learned the viciousness, cunning and deception bankers used in seizing the monopoly to create money. Prior to the falsified evidence and totally unjustified invasion of Iraq in 2003, Saddam Hussein was severely irritating the international banksters by selling oil on the Euro and not the Almighty Dollar.
Excerpt in The Guardian by Faisal Islam, economics correspondent, Saturday 15 February 2003 titled:
Iraq nets handsome profit by dumping dollar for euro
A bizarre political statement by Saddam Hussein has earned Iraq a windfall of hundreds of million of euros. In October 2000 Iraq insisted on dumping the US dollar – ‘the currency of the enemy’ – for the more multilateral euro.
And so goes Iran’s threat to the US petro dollar From Oil Price.com an oil trade online magazine 2011.
Iran Opens Oil Bourse – Harbinger of Trouble for New York and London?
By John Daly – Jul 18, 2011, Now Iran is working a program, that, if it succeeds, could help undermine the dollar’s preeminence as the world’s reserve currency more effectively than a Republican filibuster. Iran’s sly weapon against the Great Satan’s currency? An oil bourse on Kish Island in the Persian Gulf, which has now begun selling high-grade Iranian crude oil. Mohsen Qamsari, deputy director for international affairs of the Iranian National Oil Company was modest about the exchange’s initial capabilities, saying, “The commodity stock exchange has been pursuing a mechanism for offering crude oil on the stock exchange for a long time, and it has taken the preliminary steps, to the extent possible.
As the media marches the cannon fodder consumers toward a war they will pay for in many ways, I’m reminded of a trip I took to visit my younger brother Ed who was in the US Army, stationed at Fort Richardson in Anchorage. We had hiked and climbed in Alaska’s vast spaces, then we watched F-15 Strike Eagles taking off and landing at the nearby airfield. The power of the jets was awe inspiring. Later we watched the new movie War Games at a base theater. The plot was about a NORAD super computer that ran away with itself while simulating an intercontinental thermos nuclear exchange with Russia. The computer was going nuts and the NORAD commander had to decide if the threat was real or not. It was very intense and finally the computer ran every conceivable thermo nuclear exchange scenario until it reached the only logical conclusion possible.
The only winning move is not to play.
This is no game folks, the socio-paths are running the asylum, and I don’t mean Trump, I mean the financial overlords who are the puppet masters and who wish to escape their past sins in the fog of nuclear war. They risk nothing, gain everything, we risk everything gain nothing.
