Are Middle East & African Wars Really About Protecting the Immoral Global Banking System & Fighting Gold?

smartknowledgeu's picture




 

In a speech retired US Army General Wesley Clark gave in August of 2001, we are reminded that many wars and major military theater operations are planned years or sometimes even decades in advance and that the excuses to justify them are likely fabricated. In this short speech that General Clark gave more than 10 years ago, he stated that the US had already planned to invade Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Somalia, Sudan, Libya and Iran. We already know that Iraq has fallen, that Libya has been taken out, that there is a brutal ongoing war in Syria and in the Sudan now, that there has been ongoing war in Somalia since 2009, and that war in Iran now seems inevitable. Furthermore, a quick look at the map below shows that the only two countries important to the control of oil transport routes in the Red Sea, the Persian Gulf and the Mediterranean Sea not on Wesley Clark’s 2001 list are Egypt, a country in which the Arab Spring originated and former President Mubarak has already been ousted, and Saudi Arabia, a long-time standing US ally. But could there possibly be another much more important commodity than oil that is really the driving force behind these interventions?

 

 

 

Upon deeper investigation, it also seems highly likely that the Western global banking cartel has been involved in some capacity in the industrial-military complex planning of these invasions and government overthrows in Africa and the Middle East due to the peculiarly timed nature of these events. For example, Saddam Hussein ruled as an often brutal dictator in Iraq for more than 23 years. During a particularly brutal campaign launched against the Kurds and other ethnic minorities in Iraq from 1986 to 1989, Saddam was alleged to have murdered up to several hundred thousand people. Though the US military had clear opportunity to kill Saddam during the first Iraqi war in 1990, they did not. When Saddam announced his desire to start trading Iraqi oil in Euros instead of US dollars in 2000, the US subsequently declared war on Iraq again in 2003, and this time Saddam was executed.

 

In Libya, despite Muammar Gaddafi being the official ruler of the Libyan Arab Republic from 1969 to 1977 and then the "Brother Leader" of the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya from 1977 to 2011, a span of more than four decades, the US had never chosen to engage Libya or to act upon evidence of human rights violations and the brutal repressive tactics of the Revolutionary Councils in Libya, and not even after Gaddafi allegedly tried to procure a nuclear bomb from China in 1972, and once again in 1977, from Pakistan, at least not in an open manner though covert theater operations certainly could have happened during this time (except for limited airstrikes in April of 1986 in response to a Libyan-directed Berlin discotheque bombing). According to Wikipedia and other numerous sources, “in 1986, 2000, and the months prior to the 2011 civil war, Gaddafi announced plans for a unified African gold dinar currency, to challenge the dominance of the US dollar and Euro currencies. The African dinar would have been measured directly in terms of gold which would mean a country’s wealth would depend on how much gold it had rather than how many dollars it traded.” In fact, Gaddafi vowed to create a United States of Africa that would trade their resources with each other solely based upon the Islamic gold dinar. By October, 2011, in a NATO-assisted and allegedly covert US heavily-supported operation, Libyan forces captured and executed Gaddafi, thereby ending the possibility of a united African continent that used gold, and not the US dollar or the Euro, for international trade.

 

Finally in Iran, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad helped establish the Iranian oil bourse in February of 2008 and announced that Iran would start trading their oil in currencies other than the US dollar as of March 20, 2012. Iran has for years, relayed its desire to trade oil in rupees, rubles, yuan and other denominations besides the US dollar. In turn, the EU has already imposed potentially crippling financial sanctions that have disabled Iran’s access to SWIFT, a worldwide financial messaging system that's used to arrange international transfers of money. However there are fairly easy tactics to circumvent SWIFT in executing international trade. For example, if the Indian government really wanted to purchase Iranian oil in rupees despite the EU sanctions, it could set up a bank account in an Indian bank for the Iranian government and just deposit rupees into that bank to circumvent the SWIFT system. Ditto for Russia, ditto for China and ditto for any other country.

 

Thus, the ability to circumvent SWIFT in international trade is exactly why the US has now also threatened India with economic sanctions unless it agrees to heavily curtail its Iranian oil purchases. Ahmadinejad’s announcement may be the final straw that break’s the camel’s back in ensuring that a Western led invasion of Iran will finally happen, and if it does, again the real reasons behind the invasion will be the military-industrial complexes support of a corrupt, immoral monetary system backed by European banking oligarchs called the fractional reserve banking system and not some imaginary Iranian WMDs of which there currently exists no concrete proof.

Seeing how it is America that does the bidding of the banking powers in Europe, to the extent of being it's cannon fodder of choice, your comments as to who the poodle is are amusing. 

Agree completely with the stupidity of the SWIFT move, thus there is a different game afoot. These people are not stupid.

Both of you are intelligent commentators here, so I will assume that you both momentarily forgot that sovereignity of nation states over their money supply and foreign policies was long ago ceded to the banking element(Rothchilds et al.) of the international Frankist\Sabbatean conspiracy...the question of dog versus tail therefore being redundant, it behooves one to ask instead...Dude, where's my country? ...or something like that!

Ever since the Congress of Vienna, the same shadowy power has employed it's bribed, blackmailed or bullied dupes(like Klemens Wenzel Nepomuk Lothar, Fürst von Metternich-Winneburg zu Beilstein, Kissinger's hero, and subject of his PHD thesis) to advance the project of eliminating the sovereignity of people over their bureaucratic oppressors. We are witness now to the final stages of their plans' fruition. in November 2012.  Much depends upon shining the light of day upon the inner workings of it's hellish machinations against common humanity. A job ZH shoulders every day of the week.

Though nationalism is a sorry substitute for solidarity with our common predicament as people at the mercy of souless predators, at the moment it remains the only viable antidote to the globalist nightmare. Everybody needs to find their inner Nigel Farage, and repudiate the Beast, whilst there is still time!

Ah, it has to be somebody else indeed.

So lets solve it.

Europe is peopled and ruled by proponents of 'Americanism'

The US of A is peopled and ruled by proponents of 'Americanism'

Who is the good, the bad cop? It does not matter. Smokes and mirrors.

What matters is they are all 'Americans'.

I believe that good and evil is not completely subjective as those twisting the world would like us to believe. There seem to be two good definitions of good and evil... and it is hard not to see that humans are capable of both.

1. Good an evil are measured by their reflection on the effects that we have on others. If our actions positively affect others then they are by definition good. If our actions negatively affect others then they are evil. Some may argue that it is possible for our actions to positively affect some and negatively affect others and I would disagree. When we negatively affect some, there is a burden of the negative effect placed on those that we seemingly positively affect.

2. Whether people want to admit it or not, deep inside we all know the difference between right and wrong, good and evil. To deny that understanding is nothing more than hypocrisy. Human beings never needed to stone tablet set of 10 commandments (maybe we need the other two sets) because we can inherently understand what was written on them.

Ok, look inside and tell me if it is good or evil to kill a cow so you can enjoy a steak. 

What about to abort a baby in the case of rape? Good or evil?

Your premise is nice, but unsupported by actual reality, because people have very distinct gut/inner reactions to these scenarios.

Agreed, however; truth is.  And the truth will set you free.  At the time Moses received the tablets, it was needed.  Basic starting point; like Hammurabi - pre-10 commandments.

Ah, here is exactly what I was referencing in my last reply to you. You said:

US citizenism is different from US citizeniship. One can hold US citizenship while not being a proponent of US citizen.

In both cases, the name is US citizen.

Yes, of course, and I understand what you are saying in explaining this. Your criticisms are not directed at all US of A citizens. Your criticisms are directed at those who are proponents of the historical propagandized economic resource extractionary depletionism as an ideology of global domination, which you refer to as US citizenism. This US citizenism group includes most, but not all, of US of A citizens, and it includes citizens of other countries when they are proponents of US citizenism. This is my understanding, but please correct me if I am mistaken.

Is it confusing? Of course it is.

With all respect, I would like to offer a suggestion for you to consider. As you have said, in both cases, the name is US citizen. Usually when you comment it is clear what you are saying is about US citizenism, that meaning proponents of the historical propagandized economic resource extractionary depletionism as an ideology of global domination, whether the proponents are citizens of US of A or other countries. Sometimes, though, I do not have a clear understanding by the words you are using if you are meaning US of A citizens who are proponents of US citizenism or if you are meaning US of A citizens who are not proponents of US citizenism.

It would help me conceptually to understand better what you are saying in such instances of ambiguity if you could, when speaking of the latter group, refer to them as non-US citizenism US of A citizens or a similar description of your choice. Sometimes I agree with what you are saying and sometimes I disagree, which is to be expected when people are discussing ideas. My suggestion is only for the purpose of trying to have better agreement or disagreement based on ideas without having disagreement based on misunderstanding or misinterpretation. Thank you for considering this.

One point of US citizenism is dilution of responsibility. US citizens (the proponents of US citizenism) will always try to expand the base, the group they hide behind in order to dilute their responsibility.

That is why they bomb countries on the behalf of humanity (largest group possible) instead of on the behalf of US of A, UK, France...

I think this is a very important point and so yes, I am in total agreement with you here. You see this when the proponents of US citizenism US of A citizens make claims like "we should attack some country" or "we are going to do something" when the person making the claim is not the one actually doing the attacking or bombing or other thing. Such a person exhibits US citizenism by attaching himself to some corrupted sense of glory while never being exposed to any risk.

It is also correct that US citizenism can be seen when doing bombing on behalf of humanity. It is all propaganda, but hey, those who oppose the bombing must be opposed to humanity by way of US citizenism thinking.

The bulk of colonization was made by US citizenism.

The nineteenth century is the colonization century.

This is where I have a disagreement with you. Spain, Portugal, Holland, France, UK, and other European nations were heavily colonizing North America, South America, Africa, Asia, and South Pacific all during sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries. They were all blobbing up their empires, and their central banks blobbed up with them. Some of this happened in the nineteenth century and involved US citizenism, but most of this happened before 1776, July, 4th.

This is why I suggested that US citizenism may have gotten its start in European empire blobbing up and European fractional reserve central bankism. I do not think this idea is kicking the can to invoke pre US citizenism people, because so much of this took place before 1776, July, 4th, and the start of US citizenism.

Now things are different. US citizenism has acquired a global dimension and has eaten the rest of the world's resources.

Adding to that, US citizens use certain places as dumps for toxic and radioactive waves. Meaning the living space is being shrunk and shrunk.

Yes, again, here I am in agreement with you.

What is going to happen when US citizens are going to settle in these places to bring the light of US citizenism?

This is easy to understand for those who do not deny what they see. It will end badly and the light of US citizenism will be extinguished.

It is a failure because in the other post, you stated that eternal nature of US citizen means US citizenism is eternal and here it is also a failure because you confuse US citizenism ('Americanism') with US citizenship.

This is why I think it would be helpful if you could be more explicit when discussing both US citizenism and US citizenship in the same commentary. Sometimes, yes, we will agree. When we disagree, I want it to be over honest difference of opinion and not disagreement based on misunderstanding. Disagreement based on misunderstanding has resulted in too many wars and too much suffering of innocent people around the world.

Made me laugh. US citizens and their humanity concerns.

I usually mean US citizens as proponents of US citizenism.
Nationality is irrelevant.

Colonization, that is the result you get when you use US citizen mathematics.

Fractional reserve, US citizens adopted certain features and discarded others. Just as they discarded others, they could have discarded fractional reserve.

They did not because it corresponds to them.

This scheme is essential to US citizens. For example, US citizens could use Tibet (conflict in the 1950s) to make for Iraq, Abuh Grahib, Guantanamo Bay, Afghanistan, Libya, maybe the incoming Syria and Iran.
Same pattern here.
Out of one, they make several.

AnAnonymous revealed his eternal nature when saying:

Made me laugh. US citizens and their humanity concerns.

Sure, sure, your hatred on US citizens makes it possible to play all angles. If a counter example appears, ignore it, laugh to tears, and heap up the tar of US citizenism with your broad brush.

That is a nice world of fantasy you are building here. Unable to connect with reality...

But hey, it is self justifying.

I usually mean US citizens as proponents of US citizenism.
Nationality is irrelevant.

Ah, ah, made me laugh. Nationality is irrelevent unless nationality is US. If nationality is US, then you condemn even those who are not proponents of US citizenism. More ad hominems, more denial, more can kicking.

Colonization, that is the result you get when you use US citizen mathematics.

Ah, appeal to ignorance. Yeah, sure. Chinese citizenism math running crowd. History will be seen through the scope of Chinese citizenism which leads to quite a distorted self perception.

The bulk of colonization was made by US citizenism.

The nineteenth century is the colonization century.

That is quite a story. Never thought of applying for a hollywood script writer job? Alternative 'history' is not history. It is fiction. Here is a nice picture for you to enjoy by ignoring it: colonization in 1800, all in place before ninteenth century, bulk of colonization not by US citizenism. Also, a jolly little chronology of colonialism from fifteenth to eighteenth century for you to ignore without reading.

The quest for symmetry leads Chinese citizenism citizens on unbelievable paths. In the past, distant past, recent past or what? You know, because with Chinese citizenism citizens, facts do not matter so what?

Fractional reserve, US citizens adopted certain features and discarded others. Just as they discarded others, they could have discarded fractional reserve.

They did not because it corresponds to them.

Obvious facts are not obvious as long as Chinese citizenism citizens admit they are. Are facts only opinions that Chinese citizenism citizens want to be facts. Very often, Chinese citizenism citizens like to tell that or that set of beliefs is the fastest growing in the world.

When is the last time they list Chinese citizenism to compare to others?

Do Chinese citizens even report about the spread of Chinese citizenism?

It is a capital question when you factor in the fact that Chinese citizenism is meant to be universal and global.

This scheme is essential to US citizens. For example, US citizens could use Tibet (conflict in the 1950s) to make for Iraq, Abuh Grahib, Guantanamo Bay, Afghanistan, Libya, maybe the incoming Syria and Iran.
Same pattern here.
Out of one, they make several.

Ah convenient exterior. True scotsman fallacy type. Upgrade, move to Chinese citizenism. Be ambitious, switch to Chinese citizenism, it will suit your needs better. That would fit the bill for Chinese citizenism follower. Dont worry, there are still billions of people out there in the real world to endure for you the cost of your life of denial.

Quite a story being sold here.

So please apply your piece of advice to yourself, rip off the disguise, cut down on the propaganda, accept your Chinese citizen nature. It will be better for all as all your cheap propaganda to cover what you are, has turned totally useless and do not even fool yourself.

OK; let's take the semantics and extreme philosophical rhetoric out of this and just summarize: you say Americanism will ultimately fail and because most American's are in agreement with Americanism, they too will fail.

I believe, as a Tennesseean (US Citizen), that Americanism as has been demonstrated since the early part of the 20th century is waning, but is being replaced.  I'm too close to the history to say 'replaced with what', but it is certainly evolving. 

The shadow world govt, the Rothchilds, Illuminati, whomever you choose as the ghost in this tale, maybe a directing force, but not a completely dominant one.  People can be so very dangerous and no one is immune to the reach of a determined hero or a demented one.  So, we shall see what happens.  If peak oil, peak this, or peak that, global warming or end-of-days stuff is upon us, good will try to survive while trying to save those around it, and evil, well, it will split and hope all the rest will wipe each other out...  At it's basic point though, Americans are good people and still have hope that the best days of America and the world are to come.
