Iran Speaks Up: "Paper Dollar Destroying World Economy"

Tyler Durden's picture


This one is just too good to pass by: the latest critic of US monetary, and budget policy, is none other than... Iran. From PressTV: "Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad strongly criticizes US economic policies, saying that the paper currency created by the American government is taking a heavy toll on the global economy." In an address to the fourth UN Conference on the Least Developed Countries in Istanbul, Turkey, on Monday, Ahmadinejad said that the cash injected into the global economy in the form valueless US dollars amount to over USD 32 trillion, IRNA reported. “This is while the US budget deficit for the 2011 fiscal year is expected to reach a figure above USD 1.6 trillion,” he added. Who would have thought The Onion reality of our centrally planned times would get to a point where Iran speaks more truth than our own politicians...

More from PressTV:

The Iranian president also pointed that the US foreign debt now approaching over USD 14.6 trillion, while the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in the United States stands at around USD 14 trillion.

President Ahmadinejad stated that such figures clearly explain the plunder of national wealth in many countries, and the upsurge in poverty and underdevelopment across the globe.

He noted the certain countries rob less developed states to pay their international debts.

“Most of international economic organizations either defend the existing situation or serve the interests of certain states,” he said.

President Ahmadinejad further said the era of colonialism is coming to an end and the management of world issues should be reformed.

Lastly, if Iran gets its way, the US may soon follow Weimar not only in infinite printing, but in paying reparations:

He also proposed the formation of an independent commission to assess the extent of damage inflicted on oppressed nations during the era of colonialism, and to oblige former colonialist powers to pay indemnities.

There is little one can add to this gem. Pretty much says it all.

Indeed, fiat paper money IS the weapon of mass destruction.

So as margin hike under their control of exchanges, effectively increase trading cost and contract size.

Do Iran have their own crude oil exchange to set their price yet?

The IOB (Iranian Oil Bourse) is intended as an oil bourse for petroleum, petrochemicals and gas in various currencies, primarily the euro and Iranian rial and a basket of other major currencies apart from the United States dollar.

During 2007, Iran asked its petroleum customers to pay in non US dollar currencies. By December 8, 2007, Iran reported to have converted all of its oil export payments to non-dollar currencies.[

Completely agreed. Iran is doing what Saddam tried to do and Qadafi was thinking to do. The difference is (I think) Iran's a-bomb and its reach to Israel.

Funny that Iran accuses the U.S. of flooding the world with worthless U.S. dollars, because Iran is the biggest counterfeiter of dollars in the world.  They have had nearly perfect US plates and have been the 2nd biggest printer of US dollars (after the Bernank) for years!

Iran has been sticking its thumb in the eye of the NWO (pun inteded) for some time, hence the axis of evil designation.  Iran's press TV and Russia Today are actually good sources of news outside the grip of the NWO, have been for awhile.

I think China will need a TV channel for that as well. Even thought theres are a lot of best selling books around bookshops, radio program about all those NWO and CFR... etc, no TV channel is dedicated on those global event, so the sheeple are still asleep, you know all they want is grass and water, they don't care.

Non no no no no, not 'Invasion', it's a 'precision strike in the name of humanitarian egalitarian intervention with overtones of ever ubiquitous US altruism'. I know it's a bit wordy, but we need to cover all the bases in the positively unlikely event of any 'collateral' damage

Weird fact about when I post.

The higher I get junked the faster it happens.  Junked to death on anything that smells like a problem, the faster it becomes a real one.  Egypt...Euro Crash...Oil spill, nukes in Japan.  Name it.  Go look.  I know it's not me making the comment, it's the fact all the news stories the three weeks prior I've read give me the "knee jerk" reaction to the subject matter.

The fact is the rumblings out of the middle east in the last YEAR is the call of ONE FUCKING THING.

In the next two years we will all see a brand new Caliphate backed by nobody by the Muslim religion and the people on the ground.  It doesn't mean that it'll be a huge problem.  It just means a change.  A massive change at that.  It also translates into a bunch of other things.  I'll let your own imaginations wander with that, might want to wiki the Original Caliphate that took over all of Europe (including england...look up the term Moor), only thing that stopped it was the Mongols.  Only reason the Caliphate happened was rich, white assholes not keeping their shit out of Arab business in terms of the church.  Funny how that piece of history is starting to repeat itself...anycase, suggestions.

If you are Israeli, I would suggest selling the house and running to the other end of the world.

If you are a soldier (US, Canuck, UK..I'm excluding the French Foreign Legion...they are actually dangerous when deployed), you should put your affairs in order, it's going to be a tough run to keep a position or maintain supplies.

The Mediterranean is no longer Europe's or any of the water ways.  Just like the last time the Caliphate was in the lime light.

There is a reason nobody walked into Iran, it's just asking for a shit load of trouble.  Now with people starving and getting pissed at missing meals.  The Mulahs, shamen, priest or rabbis...whatever word you want talk religon, these folks aren't going to listen after the third missed meal.  Then whoever is "in-charge" is in deep shit.  They'll be killed, and more than likely eaten (humanity's dirty secret).  Then it'll be a total fucking mess.

It's the exact same reason nobody is insane enough to walk into Libya.  The tribal factions aren't warring over space...this is about food.  Trust me, if any of you were hungry enough, you would kill a passing aquaintance.  Throw healthy...fatter than the local soldiers in there...we will see it on 4chan and a video of some 20 year old roasted, braised, sliced and then served.  It's humanity's dirty secret, canabalism that is....anycase.

Birds on the wire are already talking about mobilizing an air strike this week from the US/ISrael end.  On the birds nest on the other end, the Carriers have been tracked for two weeks and will be sunk then a complete shit storm dropped...get this, no on Israel.  On Iraq.  It will be flattened.  The engineers there have been given instructions on both sides to follow in close.

God speed to my Engineering brothers on both sides to stay alive, although most of you will die. <sigh>  so fucking stupid...armies without engineers are just assholes with sticks.

Same reason if a highschool sport's team has there mom's there.  If the Eqyptians wanted to they could starve Europe in less then a week.  They are running the canal with Israeli money..but the other dirty trade secret is Israel is in the same shape as the rest of the middle east.  No food.  Nothing is growing...even with a heavy emphasis on engineering salt water into fresh water, there just isn't enough to replace nature and rain.  Israel won't be Israel much longer, it will be part of the NEO (fuck I hate that latin term) Caliphate.

Last time this happened the Greeks, Spaniards, Italy...well most of the PIIG's fled north.  France was a strip of land and the Germans minded their own business.  Want to know where the term Black Irish comes  And anyone in those areas were smart to fuck off and run when it happened.  Only reason most of Christainity lasted as long as it did is because tonnes of information found was shipped to Ireland.  England wasn't too fond of that, nuked the Irish, kept the church and currently that old bitch in England is sitting on a lot...A LOT of information on the era.


Let put it this way.  Europe didn't have a hope in hell of making it the last time.  This time.  Playing the same spade on the same hand five minutes later isn't going to make you luckier.  And the last time a Greek attempted to broker a peace of someone elses land in the Caliphate...well...his entire family was killed and his head was put on a pike in, then, Constantinople, now Istanbul.

Paris will be renamed...just like Constantinople.  Couple of things you learn as a Canuck.

Don't haggle a New Yorker under the retail price (retail is the price, unless you know a guy)

Don't play poker with a man from Washington State (they all seem to be semi-texan).

Don't play chess with an desert Arab (regardless of religon).

Don't try to outdrink a Pol even being built Irish tough.

The Caliphate is the next step.

CPL - yes, sometimes you are entertaining.  But this time, you are way overboard, at least in your versions of history.  Take this for example -

I'll let your own imaginations wander with that, might want to wiki the Original Caliphate that took over all of Europe (including england...look up the term Moor),

Including England!?!  Look.  Try this. 732 Battle of Tours.  Charles Martel.

Believing that the plunder of the campaign was being stolen, a large part of the Umayyad army broke off the battle and raced to protect their camp. While attempting to stop the apparent retreat, Abdul Rahman was surrounded and killed by Frankish troops. Briefly pursued by the Franks, the Umayyad withdrawal turned into a full retreat. Charles reformed his troops expecting another attack, but to his surprise it never came as the Umayyads continued their retreat all the way to Iberia. Charles' victory at the Battle of Tours saved Western Europe from the Muslim invasions and was a turning point in European history.

In Eastern Europe, they tried twice, but never got by Vienna.  Sicilly yes.  Mainland Italy no.

Maybe it's the mushrooms?  Is it the shrooms?  Maybe Canadian schools are different? Der Hey ;)

England was barely a nation at that point ...MAYBE to what is liverpool at this time (what a shithole).  It was far too busy pretending to HAVE A NATION if not stealing land from Scotland like the filthy pirates they were in the 700's.  It was a land grab of cowards RUNNING from a real threat, so the British attacked anything gaelic (including Gauls along with the Scots, Welsh and attacking farmers and traders...pretty easy too, they hold out a hand and you cut it off).

Most of your Crown was BLESSED by the colleges set up in Lisbon by Al-Walid.  THE BRITISH CROWN WAS GIVEN BLESSING BY AL-WALID to continue because they needed energy, corn (wheat), specifically whale oil and coal for energy.  England by fact is a lovely Muslim enclave without a mulah but some King appointed by "someone's" god, if the german's hadn't figured out how to kick ass in around the 1400th century, you wouldn't have seen Henry the Eigth. It would have been a nice piece of shit shanty town that people trade in.


Oh is.  London that is.  England:  Built by Muslim blessing to rule all the Celts and Gaels.  Has a nice ring to it doesn't it?


Please go start at "How the Irish saved Civilsation"...unfortunately I wish they didn't for a couple of reasons.  The title was ridiculious (well, referenced and easily read by morons like followers of three page dialogues in "published" works like Time magazine.) and we actually saved this crap for the British empire to expand.

London was built by the Romans.  Here ... Welcome to Londinium.

Also ... I did read the book.  There's almost nothing in it about Muslims.  Summary: Ireland was on the fringe of the Roman Empire and did not convulse during the collapse, Irish monks repatriated during the collapse.  As a result, they wound up saving most of the ancient texts that survived.  Monks left Ireland after a time to reintroduce said knowledge/texts.

Curse you, curse your dead, curse your loved ones, curse your hated ones, curse you all.

Anyone that doesn't get cursed gets to use Catholic words for non-curse or the Muslim words for no curse...because we are the only religons with them.  An irish curse is a carry curse, it hope you all die a horrible death.  The only reason Ireland has no interest in a muslim curse is because we carried a long from the English which we broke years ago by L:OW FUCKING INTEREST RATES, but that's not going to happen.  We might speak english, but the last thing the ECU should hearis FUCK YOU, virgin pieces of shit horse fuckers.

I apologise if you are named after the original blue bloods of europe, genetically you won't survive...ancestors would have, but after many generations, like fruit flies, it's a learned trait, then becomes conditioned in the genes.  Much like teaching a kid not to complain at fletching his french fry, it's impossible to recondition damaged genes.

I would presume that hyperinflation would result in a currency change...  so, deflation prior to hyperinflation...  or, depending on the FED, stagflation prior to hyperinflation.

Inflation up to 2007. Deflation late 2008. Stagflation ever since (see 'Mark to Skypie' for details).

Bihyperinstagdeflation by the end of the year? Let's see how long extend and pretend can keep extending and pretending.

It all depends on how far plebian awareness of the inherent worthlessness of fiat currencies progresses before the next 'black swan' fugue is orchestrated. Well, that and how much of their toxic shit banks have managed to unload from their balance sheets onto the general public's via fraudulent triple EH rating scams (or just simple cronyism, as I doubt these days many fund managers take the ratings companies' conflicts of interests dressed up as value judgments all that seriously; beyond where they are forced to by law, natch.)

Why would we even consider the opinion of a mad man, running a religious fanatic's government, with the stated purpose of ruling the world.  They are like an Austin Powers movie, Ahmadinejad is a Lex Luther character - and just as rediculous.  The Shiates are an awful people.  The other 90% of Muslims, the Sunni, are decent people.  People need to understand the difference.

Yes, agreed.  But I am a libretarian who believes in self-determination, a concept the United States abandonned at least as far back at Vietnam.  If the Sunnis take another 300 years to catch up, so be it, that is their business and to their detriment, not mine. Societies do evolve, some faster than others.  But the Shiates think their leaders are devine, and that they have a right to rule the world, much more dangerous than folks who refuse to move out of caves.  We do not see the aborignal people as a threat to Western society.
