Hyperinflation Comes To Iran

Tyler Durden's picture

Hyperinflation has struck again, this time at ground zero of the most sensitive geopolitical conflict in ages: Iran. EA WorldView reports:

An EA source reports that a relative in Tehran ordered a washing machine for 400,000 Toman (about $240) this week. When he went to the shop the next day, he was told that --- amidst the currency crisis and rising import costs --- the price was now 800,000 Toman (about $480). Another EA source says that the price of an item of software for a laptop computer has tripled from 50,000 Toman to 150,000 Toman within days.

And so the opportunity cost for the Ahmedinejad regime to preserve its status quo gradually grinds to zero, as the entire economy implodes (courtesy of a few strategic financially isolating decisions) making further escalation virtually inevitable, in a 100% replica of the US-planned Japanese escalation that led to the Pearl Harbor attack, and gave America the green light to enter the war.

Summary of McCollum's 1940 memo.

They must die because their central bank isn't controlled by the world central bank monopoly.

Like Venezuela and North Korea.

EU oil sanctions are irrelevant to Iran. China is more than glad to buy out the present EU share. Less oil to sell the higher oil prices for EU and the USA.

America/Israel and their NATO puppets are trying to provoke Iran to do something stupid like Japan has done in 1941.

If instead of fucking with America, Japan would join Nazi Germany invading USSR, they and Hitler could have all the USSR with no need for dealing with America at that time. Japanese were too stupid! They got themselves into an American trap.

The same with Iran: build your fucking nukes ASAP and, as North Korea, tell to EU & Israel that they are in a range of your nukes. It takes just 1-3 nukes to wipe out Israel from the face of the Earth PERMANENTLY!

Do you think Zionists will play this game? I would like to see this.


Nuking Saudy oil fields will also make them radioactive for a while...

I see you didn't read the 1940 memo Tyler posted above.  Japan did not "fuck" with America.  Japan had been working with America as a partner since kicked the doors in.  The US made a policy, as outlined above and documented elsewhere, of antagonizing the Japanese government, sidelining the domestic Japanese peace parties, including Navy politicians, forcing the Japanese Army away from it's obsession with the Soviet Union (which the Japanese had invaded TWICE since Lenin founded it) and angling for a Japanese reaction that would bestir Congress into jumping into war in general, with the idea of make Euope the main theatre.

You need to revisit your understanding of the "Good War."

The guy may have meant that attacking Pearl Harbor was fucking with America.

i dunno if the japs were too stupid in attacking US instead of USSR, they needed raw materials for china campaign in addition:

- the japs would have had a hard time invading USSR through siberia (terrain, climate & some of russia's best troops were stationed there).

- the japs were bogged down in a land war in china. in terms of military resource allocation, another land war in asia doesn't equate to a naval war in the pacific.

- siberia & china operations would be further hampered by lack of oil, rubber etc, given no attack on US (US forcing french indochina, dutch indonesia along with brits to trade embargo japs)

- if it came to it, the US probably would have used a false flag attack as a casus belli like the germans did (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Himmler)

i agree with vlad on the justication for european theatre however, people forget one of the main reasons for US neutrality was the fact that >40% of it's population were of german stock with only moderate levels of assimilation (german newspapers still prevalent)

american strategy was very effective though - destruction of japanese, dutch, french & british empires. the soviets giving all of the japs mainland military equipment to the maoists was the only thing that didn't go to plan.

Randall Cabot's picture

The Gleiwitz incident was a false flag but there was a lot of actual aggression against the ethnic Germans in Poland-same thing in Czechoslovakia. Same thing in Russia also.

socalat_Kruger's's picture

aha well the poles and ruskies weren't a fan of hitler's vision of turning eastern europe into the german equivalent of the american west. manifest destiny didn't work out so well for the indians.

Randall Cabot's picture

I'm referring to the period between the World Wars where the Versailles Treaty placed various ethnic groups in other countries like putting Germans in Poland. Hitler asked Poland to join the anti-communist pact but Poland refused so Hitler made a deal with the Bolsheviks and they teamed up on Poland.

socalat_Kruger's's picture

if your sense of national identity is derived from the battle of grunwald, how can you allow a bunch of teutons & prussians to live in your country? poland allying with germany is like a frog being slow cooked in a pot. germanisation of poland was always on the cards, like what happened after the fall of the polish-lithuanian commonwealth: (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Germanisation_of_Poles_during_Partitions)


Randall Cabot's picture

The Polish Corridor wasn't the Poles' country until the Versailles Treaty. My point is it may have been better for the Poles and Germans if Poland did join the Anti-Comintern Pact, they may have been able to work something out. In fact, Pilsudski was open to an agreement with Germany but after he died the new Army rulers in Poland were played like a fiddle by the warmongers in England, France and the US-and their stupidity led to disaster!

One of these days the Poles are going to create a bogus pretext invade Germany and Russia, and royally fuck them over for a change.

i dunno if the japs were too stupid in attacking US instead of USSR

That's the thing - there was no 'instead', Japan tried to challenge USSR before the WW2, but didn't succeed, which determined them to focus efforts and resources on Pacific and Asia as challenging SU further was considered very costly after these battles: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battles_of_Khalkhin_Gol

Few in the West know, but Japan signed peace treaty with SU after defeat, which was subsequently broken by USSR after Roosevelt and Churchill pressured Stalin to open 'Eastern Front':

At the Tehran Conference (November 1943), Stalin agreed that the Soviet Union would enter the war against Japan once Nazi Germany was defeated. At the Yalta Conference (February 1945), Stalin agreed to Allied pleas to enter World War II's Pacific Theater within three months of the end of the war in Europe. The invasion began on August 9, 1945, precisely three months after the German surrender on May 8 (May 9, 0:43 Moscow time).


Many attribute surrender of Japan primarily to Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings, but few realize that if not for its timely surrender, Japan could be overrun by the Soviets:

The rapid defeat of Japan's Kwantung Army was a very significant factor in the Japanese surrender and the end of World War II, as Japan realised the Russians were willing and able to take the cost of invasion of its Home Islands, after their rapid conquest of Manchuria and Sakhalin.


So no, japanese were not stupid at least in a sense that they didn't try to invade the USSR.

"100% replica of the US-planned Japanese escalation that led to the Pearl Harbor attack" - My thoughts exactly.

TPTB want this war. The entire MENA region needs to be restructured in order for a one world government to be successful. Iran is like a dog being backed into a corner right now and the US is brandishing a choke chain.

If Iran has a Sansom Option like the israelis do, God help us!!!

"At about two weeks, after the beginning of the war on Iran, emergency rooms and doctors offices will begin to see a sudden spike in a number of new diseases with numerous very ill people being admitted to hospitals in North America, and Western Europe and what is left of Israel. By that time the Iranian and Syrian states will have effectively ceased to exist with insufficient manpower and organization to even bury their dead.

The many new genetically engineered viruses causing the strange diseases showing up will have been spread by sleeper agents supplied with a number of new viruses and distributed in public places (movie theaters, shopping malls, churches, etc.) quietly without anyone knowing. Humans themselves will become the vectors of the diseases/biowar agents."

Ezekial 38 has a more reliable prediction. Just read this, and tell me if it doesn't sound plausible. And note the prediction of Israel being regathered in the land: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I am against you, Gog (Russia), chief prince of Meshek and Tubal. I will turn you around, put hooks in your jaws and bring you out with your whole army... Persia (Iran), Cush (Sudan) and Put (Libya) will be with them, all with shields and helmets, also Gomer with all its troops, and Beth Togarmah (Southern Russia) from the far north with all its troops—the many nations with you. “‘Get ready; be prepared, you and all the hordes gathered about you, and take command of them. After many days you will be called to arms. In future years you will invade a land that has recovered from war, whose people were gathered from many nations to the mountains of Israel, which had long been desolate. They had been brought out from the nations, and now all of them live in safety. You and all your troops and the many nations with you will go up, advancing like a storm; you will be like a cloud covering the land... “‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: You are the one I spoke of in former days by my servants the prophets of Israel. At that time they prophesied for years that I would bring you against them. This is what will happen in that day: When Gog attacks the land of Israel, my hot anger will be aroused, declares the Sovereign LORD. In my zeal and fiery wrath I declare that at that time there shall be a great earthquake in the land of Israel. The fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the beasts of the field, every creature that moves along the ground, and all the people on the face of the earth will tremble at my presence. The mountains will be overturned, the cliffs will crumble and every wall will fall to the ground. I will summon a sword against Gog on all my mountains, declares the Sovereign LORD. Every man’s sword will be against his brother. I will execute judgment on him with plague and bloodshed; I will pour down torrents of rain, hailstones and burning sulfur on him and on his troops and on the many nations with him. And so I will show my greatness and my holiness, and I will make myself known in the sight of many nations. Then they will know that I am the LORD.’ This was translated into Greek around 250 BCE. Ancient Hebrew documents of this were also found in Qumran. And this is how it will unfold.

Israel is an illegitimate and impostor Ashkenazi-Edomite regime.

The overwhelming majority of people there are NOT Hebrews.

the real irony, the Palestinians, unlike the European Israelis, are descended from those people.  So the idiots in the U.S. who claim to be christian and yet support the oppression of the Palestinian people are actually supporting exactly what they claim to spiritually oppose.  who said the devil was going to play fair?

here's a "choice" of media on the topic:

A good summary of US foreign policy maneuvering before WW2 would be George Morgenstern's  Pearl Harbor-The Story of a Secret War.

Randall Cabot's picture



"Said ex-President Herbert Hoover, Republican statesman of the day, "We have only one job to do now, and that is to defeat Japan."

But to friends, "the Chief" sent another message:"You and I know that this continuous putting pins in rattlesnakes finally got this country bit."

Today, 70 years after Pearl Harbor, a remarkable secret history, written from 1943 to 1963, has come to light. It is Hoover’s explanation of what happened before, during and after the world war that may prove yet the death knell of the West.

Edited by historian George Nash, Freedom Betrayed: Herbert Hoover’s History of the Second World War and Its Aftermath is a searing indictment of FDR and the men around him as politicians who lied prodigiously about their desire to keep America out of war, even as they took one deliberate step after another to take us into war."

Good point SheepDog. I often wonder at people who have never been anywhere and sit and slam nations they know nothing about.

I often hear Sweden slammed as a socialist hell hole. What a joke! My family is of Swedish heritage, I have many family members living there and have been there many times and speak the language.  My family members are independent farmers who own their land and decide how their business is run, I have top corporate managers for big Swedish firms in the family, their businesses are capitalist and successful to the extreme. Others in the family have started small businesses, some very successfully others not so much. How do people call Sweden anti capitalist when it is rated one of the world's best place for doing business?

I don't know Iran, but from what little I get from independent media, it is NOT a third world country at all!

chubbar's picture

The only question remaining then is why the fuck you are still here in the U.S.?????? Holy shit man! You should be on the next plane outta here! If I had a farming family in Sweden I'd be building a cabin on the back forty right about now.

Living in the US is the safest haven against US citizen lust for blood.

When you move abroad, you simply put yourself to the wrong side of the fence, to the wrong side of a bombing events.

Dont drop your US citizenship too because US citizens only body US citizens holding US citizenship.

The rest,well, they are lame ducks and the hunting season never ends with the US of A.

Meanwhile China turns inward and eats away at itself.

You stand on such high moral ground, Chinaman.

AnAnonymous's picture

Ah, that is an interesting statement true to US citizen nature.

Better to eat others than yourself.

Better to shed the bad consequences of your actions onto others than to face them. US citizenism.

Morality has little to do with wealth or poverty, even thoughbeing wealth helps to pretendyou are moral.

Fukushima Sam's picture

I am happy to admit the failings of America and work in my own way to change them.

Are you willing to do the same in your country?

Mitzibitzi's picture

You really are a proper retard, aren't you?

Firstly, I'm not US-ian.

I'm British.

Secondly, the VAST majority of our respective nations don't wish China or any bugger else any harm. Our GOVERNMENTS and CORPORATIONS and MILITARY-INDUSTRIAL complexes do.

I'm assuming you're a government shill, or at least aligned with their opinons. And guess what...

We largely agree with you on most of the arguments, idiot!

Where we don't agree with you is on how you achieve your aims;

It is NOT right to give a new-born baby a shot of potassium , just because she might breed in 15-25 years time. Anyone with enough braincells to form a functional synapse knows we have to prevent the human race from breeding without limits, cos there are limited resources and we are kicking the crap out of them at the moment.

We ALL know oil is a finite resource!

It is NOT right that any one nation should kick the crap out of any other to secure the remaining natural resources.

IF the above was discussed in an open way, globally, we would mostly take action to prevent the world population from ballooning past the approximately 15 billion people population limit, or at least at the rate it's currently heading for it!

To do that, we need the 'aid' to 3rd world countries to bypass the scumbag dictators and go directly to the people.

People who are rich are rich enough already!



WE are not the problem, our governments are!
