Guest Post: How I Reached My Breaking Point Ten Years Ago

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Submitted by Simon Black of Sovereign Man blog,

Exactly ten years ago to the day, I was in the Kuwaiti desert waiting for George W. Bush to ‘make his decision’.

You may remember the circumstances. Ever since labeling Iraq, Iran, and North Korea the ‘Axis of Evil’ in January 2002, the President had been gradually advocating war with Iraq based on the threat of nuclear weapons.

We knew it was going to happen. At the time, I was a rising intelligence officer, my head still filled with ideals of national duty from my time at West Point.

One of the generals that I served under gathered together his officers in early 2002 and said, “We’re going to war. It’s not a question of IF, but WHEN.”

By late summer of that year, my unit was ordered to Kuwait to pre-position assets and begin gathering boots on the ground intelligence. So every time Mr. Bush would say “I haven’t made a decision yet,” I winced from the heavy stench of his BS.

But still, I held out hope.

It all came crashing down ten years ago today. On February 5, 2003 Colin Powell, four-star general turned US Secretary of State, made a case to the United Nations that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.

Now, I won’t bother delving into the inaccuracies of the intelligence he presented. In Powell’s own words, making that presentation to the UN was “the lowest point in [his] life” and a “lasting blot on his record.”

For me, it was pivotal. At that instant, I knew without doubt that my government had reprehensibly lied through its teeth. And if they were lying about this... what else were they lying about?

Everything, it turned out.

The event set me down a path on which I never looked back. The fraud of the Iraq War soon led to the frauds of previous wars, our monetary system, taxes, the global banking system, the national balance sheet, the police state, etc.

It all unraveled so quickly, and I soon realized that I was not living in a free country... that all the loud, bombastic nonsense and pledges of allegiance were illusions masking modern day serfdom.

The subsequent ten years have only reinforced this trend. The political and banking elite have given us more war, inflation, and epic financial crises. They’ve turned Western civilization into a giant police state. And they’ve managed to brainwash the great masses so effectively that the people are crying out for more.

And yet, there are solutions.

After an emotional, gut-wrenching awakening, I traveled to more than 100 countries looking for freedom and opportunity. I learned that awareness, prudent planning, and global thinking can rebuild much of our stolen liberty.

Quite simply, you don’t put all of your eggs in one basket. History shows that when governments enter a period of terminal decline, they try to control EVERYTHING– wages, prices, borders, money supply, foreign exchange, private property, etc.

Of course, these tactics never work and only hasten the decline, as everyone from Emperor Diocletian of ancient Rome to Argentina’s modern day President Cristina Fernandez [will] have learned.

As destructive as these politicians are, though, they’re easy to defeat. Individuals who take action early have plenty of options to buy precious metals, move a portion of their savings abroad to a stable banking jurisdiction, and scout out locations overseas in case they ever need to get out of dodge.

These steps make sense no matter what. It’s hard to imagine that you’ll be worse off for shipping a few physical ounces of gold abroad, having some savings stashed away in a healthy foreign bank, or taking control of your retirement account.

However if it’s a bumpy road ahead– gold criminalization, capital controls, pension fund confiscation, etc.– you’ll be well ahead of the crowd.

I had to reach my breaking point before taking these steps. Fortunately I was early. Most people either ignore the writing on the wall… or they won’t do anything until it’s too late and there are no more options. I’m willing to bet that you’re different.

I'm willing to bet that most people will do nothing. I'm also willing to bet that some people will talk about it then do nothing. And others will complaint about it and do nothing. Others will tell you how you should do something about it, while they do nothing themself.

Simon Black's biography changes every day.  Now he was an "intelligence officer"?  LOL.  Please.  What a douche.

Of course, before he became "Sovereign Man" he wrote a PDF on Network Infiltration (look it up) in which he teaches you how to create a false identity for yourself to sucker investors into any project.

So I guess it's no surprise that he's doing that here.   He's a modern day Walter Mitty.   Intelligence officer?    Only in his mind...

He also used to talk about Panama all the time before they folded like a cheap suit when the US Gov demanded they hand over financial details on American citizens.  I feel bad for anyone that moved their assets there prior to that based on his advice.

Number 7 is where I'm at now......Phucket.....just Phucket all.  And the whole non-sense about moving money overseas and buying metal.....really?  Idiot.....your money is a colletction of zero bits and one bits.  Easy enough to hack that....and metal....easy enough to tax out of existence, confiscate it, outlaw it and make illegal to hold it.  Been done before when the shit REALLY hit the fan int eh 30's.  Plus...not to mention that if you're smart enough to get away with it from what I just mentioned....who will be brave enough to transact with you?  And for a fair enough exchange.....when the shit REALLY REALLY hits the fan?  I venture not many at all to be worth the trouble. 

It's a Prison Planet.  Without Moonbase Alpha floating through the cosmos....there's nowhere to go and nowhere to hide....at least in the long run.

Shall we take this questioning of morality back a little further?

In March-April 1989 there was a Pre-Gulf War I (the Persian Gulf War) build-up exercise. Units had been preparing for this for 18mths prior. The exercise was called Caltrop Force 1989.

A Pre-Gulf War.....WTF?! Yup, that's right! Even though Saddam's Army did not invade Kuwait until early August 1990, a full 17mths after Caltrop, and a full 3 years after the initial planning phase of Caltrop.

Caltrop Force was to assess 'Interoperability' of Australian, British, Canadian and American Forces.......Exactly who comprised the 'Coalition of the willing'?

Google it, see for yourself.

Now, just for kicks, take a look at the 'Enter Service' dates for the Abrams Tank and the Apache Helicopter. Be mindful that it takes about 5 years to proof and mod equipment before it's known to be battle ready.

"Saddam's Army did not invade Kuwait until early August 1990, a full 17mths after Caltrop"

One other thing: Saddam did not invade Kuwait until he had effectively gained permission from U.S. Ambassador April Glaspie: "We have no opinion on your Arab-Arab conflicts, such as your dispute with Kuwait. Secretary Baker has directed me to emphasize that the Kuwait issue is not associated with America."

The State Dept then pretended to be astounded when Iraq invaded Kuwait a week later.

Exactly.  This is the perfect question to try to dash cold water into the face of a zombie sheeple:  "Since we have these enormous deficits and so many people are on hard times, why can't the Fed just print enough money so that we don't have to pay taxes anymore?"

If their IQ is higher than room temperature and they're not a devout Keynesian, it could lead them to finding the truth.  The absurdity of the question makes them think. That's been my experience, anyway.  It doesn't always work however.

Also coming from an military intelligence background, I can totally understand this sort of "epiphany." I left after my 6 year enlistment for similar reasons (but more selfishly motivated, I was done putting my life on the line for someone else's cause).  It's strange because even starting off as a grunt like I did, the overall training of some of my elder sergeants taught some great analytical skills.  The kicker is that almost everything we analyzed in foreign intelligence was predicated with the US in the position of "being right."  I had some supervisors that helped me immensely by freeing myself of that thought process.   Suddenly analysis became MUCH easier since we were able to understand "enemy" motivations that much better.  Sometimes they were getting fucked over, sometimes we were just pissing in their cheerios.  Sometimes they actually were particularly evil fucks.  The military is filled with incredibly bright people but they aren't just trained to follow orders without question, they enter with the belief (and then further indoctrinated while in) that the US (and our allies) is wholly a source for good on the world stage.  That's an impossible claim for ANY country.

I began thinking of it in terms of "this has been going on since the first cave-man war over the best water-hole."

Sometimes the other guys beat everyone up in their caveman club, and we took over and let them go free, more or less.

Sometimes we took the water-hole because we could, or to have extra water stashed for our cave man club.

It's been a den of lies for about 50 years now. I think it started with JFK's assassination.

Or perhaps even further back to 1864, with the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.

Either way, it's been a long, LONG time.

@ Ignatius, perhaps the following will convice him and these are old estimates.

·   "The Association for Responsible Dissent estimates that from the CIA's inception in 1947 to 1987, 6 million people had died as a result of CIA covert operations."

Throw in another 2 million from 1987 to 2007, interpolated from the above estimate.

"At least 869,720 people have been killed in Afghanistan and Iraq since the U.S. and coalition attacks, based on lowest credible estimates." So let's call that another 1 million.

That makes 9 million total.

The charge was caused to be set off or exploded with a large spark generated by a barometric switch device triggered by the altitude of the plane. In other words, the assassins chose the altitude for the explosion of the plane--a standard procedure to make the targets murder look like an accident.

I watched a video on JFK Jr.  and it was supposedly a Bush clan for GW to makes his bonesman bones.   I kind of discounted that and could have been the Clintons because the kid could have beaten anyone in NY.  I loathe the Kennedys but the kid seemed like a decent person.

A real libtard woman who was well connected on the cocktail circuit during Camelot said it was Ari's kid not JFK's.  She had contact with Ari before the kid was born.  JFK Jr.  does not look like a Kennedy at all.  No irish kennedy teeth, not fair complexion, dark hair, etc. 

Anyway - the most credible thing in the video was the Navy search took forever.  A search to 10 + hours to start. JFK Jr. never flew without an instructor friend.  The idea was the friend pilot body was removed while Teddy was playing McHale's Navy.  The problem is who is the missing pilot.

 

Another person murdered was Cord Meyer's wife who was sleeping with JFK.  Cord Meyer was tasked with starting Operation Mockingbird - the CIA controlling journalists, TV and Hollywood.   WA Post, NY Times, et al.

His wife was killed walking in a park in Maryland in broad daylight shortly after JFK was killed.  Cord Meyer supposedly was part of killing JFK.  Close to death - he said they killed his wife.

Convince me of what?  What point are you (feebly) attempting to make?  My one (and only) point is that lying by people in authority pre-dates Kennedy, the Fed, Lincoln, and any other historical date you can name.  Ignatius didn't like that I challenged what I interpreted (pretty clearly) as his view that "it started with JFK".

If you don't have anything to add to that discussion, maybe save some space for others...

Actually, Lincoln promised to evacuate Fort Sumter.  But then reneged on his promise as a resupply fleet, which was held back by a storm, awaited entry into Charleston.

 

The South was faced with the choice of seizing the Fort for their own, or waiting for it to be resupplied by the opposing army.  This is no choice at all, and thus they were written into history with the stigma of firing the first shot.

 

For a great read, try "War Cycles, Peace Cycles" By Richard Kelly Hoskins.  He will show you just how far back the banking powers go and what they did to gain control of nations over and over again.

 

The best part?  He cites all of his sources, many of which are book and news periodicals going back to pre-civil war times.  Including the fact that the North was in a Depression with all sorts of bankrupt municipalities just prior to the civil war, while the south had little to no debt, mainly as a result of their religious beliefs about borrowing.

Political Correctness sidelined a good man. I bought WP Cycles from him directly and engaged him in discussion on several occasions. I have not seen that title mentioned in a long time. It is worth the read.

I always wondered how some people seem to move effortlessly around the world (like Mr. Black). It helps to have money, connections, and knowledge of how to get around security/regulations (as former intelligence officers would possess). Sure, I could move out of the U.S. with my tiny bit of wealth, but it would be much more risky for me, than for someone like Mr. Black. Who knows, he might still have some blackmail material on some world leaders that helps him move so effortlessly around the world.

Mr. Black is a master of disguise, too. He ALWAYS turns his shirts inside out halfway through the flights so that the immigration officers don't realise he's the same guy. I mean, really! They just can't work out how he vanished mid-flight... and who's this new guy?

I heard Mr. Black even has a different name that he can use when travelling, a name different to Mr. Black. And not something easy to crack, like Mr. Kcalb, either, but a completely DIFFERENT name, using different letters and stuff, maybe with some numbers or punctuation marks, to completely throw government agents of the scent.

There is no escape. They can find you no matter where you go. And, they can always pay someone off to off you. If you're seen as a threat to those that are paranoid, have the money and power, then the only reason you still exist is that they haven't made the time to extinguish your flame.

If you really want to disappear, head to NYC or any large city and become a street person.

"They can find you no matter where you go"

Maybe so, but I'm not so sure about that. Last Spring I flew into Ontario, California. That flight was the last point where I could be officially ID'd. I took the Foothills train west to a Covina station, got off and asked where the nearest bus stop was. Rode the bus around, and changed buses until I got down to El Monte. Walked into a store that sold motor scooters, paid cash for a 250cc scooter and rode it down through San Diego to San Ysidro. There I changed $ for pesos and rode across the border into Tijuana. I didn't bother with the FMM visa or Banjercito, just took the toll road west and south, following the signs that said Rosarito/Ensenada. I went down through Ensenada, Maneadero, Santo Tomas and further. Eventually I took a road down to the beach and followed the coast on a dirt road. I stayed at hostels and cheap places, always paid cash. I was never asked for my driver's license, tourist visa, passport or any other form of ID. From what I've seen of Tijuana, Ensenada, La Paz and Los Cabos you could just live quietly and no one would ever know or care that you were there.

As far as TPTB were concerned, I might have just dropped off the edge of the world. I eventually crossed back over at Tecate. Finally, I had to ID myself by handing my passport to the CBP agent. He flipped it open, glanced at the photo page and handed it back. "You really gonna ride that thing home?"

See, if you're nobody, they don't know where you are, and they don't care where you are. You don't matter. That's the way I like it.

Right...you gotta love these guys like Jim Rogers and George Soros who complain about America, while bragging about living in London and Singapore.

When SHTF, we'll find out who the REAL Americans are.  Hint; it won't be the rich assholes who helped throw this country under the bus.

Nope, it will be the rich @ssholes who were smart enough to stash away some gold and guns.

Someone on ZH posted this the other day. I thought it is good enough to repeat.
