Libya is the Tipping point.

Draw a line in the sand.

it becomes really obvious.

The map and the plan...

Missed Greece by a mile.  Portugal too, although that hasn't blown up quite yet.

Exactly Quintus,

Those are side-lights. All the major events will happen in close proximity or on this Axis.

see Zimbabwe, iceland, Ireland, Tunisia, Libya, Spain...

And Tunisia was the spark but libya is the tipping point.

ORI, Namibia is about to blow up.

A hundred years of slavery by the nazi murderers will come to an end.

At the beginning of the 20th century, Germany carried out mass extermination of the Namibian people.  They took away their land too.

Today, those nazis ranchers still deny the genocide (sound familiar?).

They are about to face infinite justice.

You make a lot of good points, but with this one I disagree.

The world map, as it appears to our leaders, is distorted by GDP figures and oil production. So, for instance, Mali, which is neither an economic power nor oil producer is essentially just a pixel on the map. Saudi Arabia, however, covers a significant part.

And the only reason Portugal and Greece even appear is because they could theoretically drag down the great socialist experiment that is the Euro.

What's the rationale for this 'line'...and who would be behind it?

Wed, 03/09/2011 - 09:50 | 1032615 Oh regional Indian
Oh regional Indian's picture

Aghast, I updated the post with this:

So, a few quick pointers, as to why I think this tells a story.

1) This round of crisis began with the slow and ultimately furious hyperinflation and beggaring of Zimbabwe, a Black Nation. Poor Blacks

2) Then came Iceland, the whitest of the white. “let down” by their bretheren, Iceland blew up next. Poor Whites

3) Next big one was Ireland, another boomer that has busted, badly. Lot’s of political turmoil too and the constant potential for civil unrest

4) Tunisia, the  man on fire that lit a region on fire. That is how it began, Man on Fire.

5) The fire spread, quickly, first to peripheral nations (to this Axis)

6) Tunisia, Libya and Egypt share a Horizontal 33rd parallel connection. To understand more about how the 33rd: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/33rd_parallel_north

7) The spark really settled in Libya, directly linked to Italy and the Vatican (joined at the hip)

 Spain is the euro bomb that will destroy the Euro. Most other nations have either Political clout or gold. Spain has sold it’s gold and is a EU stepchild right now. Portugal will be badly impacted, but other Med nations are in the periphery (for now).

9) See France and the UK, the ones doing all the no-fly zone demanding. Old North Africa death merchants. Right on the Axis.


This is a developing thesis, with the 33rd parallel marking the the cross-axis.

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/33rd_parallel_north

… the 33rd parallel is a ring of fire…. always has been, since antiquity.

Much more as I work through.

Any inputs, feedback, all welcome.

What is the secret of a 33rd Degree Mason?

This is a pointless question because no answer can be posted here. If you want to know something that only 33rd Degree Masons know, and you are not a 33rd degree Mason yourself, then the moment you learn it, it is no longer something that only 33rd degree Masons know.

For once I agree with you ORI.  Germany has financed much of Gaddafi's armament since 2002 or 2004.  http://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/images/user5/imageroot/von%20havenstein/Arms%20Sales%20to%20Libya.jpg

While Germany is not the primary supplier, they are a well-entrenched part of the ponzi scheme money laundering operation used to support the global police state.

Please tell me what the difference between Bush and Obama is again, except for the rhetoric?

Obama's a puppet. If McCain had been elected, he'd now be the puppet. The rhetoric would have differed, but the policies remained the same.

For all of Boehner's tough talk on the deficit, the "austerity plan" was a mighty joke.

I don't recall the name, but that is a paraphrase of a response from an individual with many decades in Washington on the Treasury side I believe. A president asked of him, as an advisor, about republican and democratic spending habits.

I really suck with names and I can't recall enough of the actual response to google it up. Perhaps someone with a better memory than I can cite his name.

 More precisely,

 The Republicans SAY they don't enjoy squandering money,

and the Democrats SAY they don't like dropping bombs.


But as you point out, they both bomb and squander,

and both share the spoils from military and financial chicanery.

Some information has been leaked in Germany about the upcoming stress test regarding the EU banking sector. It is even worse than I feared: GDP shrinking by -0.5%, stock market going down by at most 15% and NO, I repeat NO, debt problem or restructuring regarding Portugal, Greece and/or Ireland. Of course not, I would say: a lot of German banks would fail the stress test, if a default would be in the test.

Conclusion: like last year this test seems to be one big joke. But: what's new ;-)
