Sarkozy Reminds Market Of Geopolitics, Says Iran Nuclear Program "Serious And Urgent Threat"

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Luckily the market is all stable and stuff and can handle the prospect of a potential Iran war.

  • SARKOZY WRITES LETTERS CONCERNING IRAN'S NUCLEAR PROGRAM
  • SARKOZY SAYS IRAN'S PROGRAM IS A 'SERIOUS AND URGENT' THREAT
  • SARKOZY SAYS NEW SANCTIONS WOULD FORCE IRAN TO NEGOTIATE

Now where is that weekly US naval update...

Bingo. Even if that wasn't the case (which it most definitely is), Sarkozy and everyone else need to get their own lives in order first.

Yesterday I came on this newspaper article that I thought I’d share with you (my translation from the French):

 

"In full economic crisis, as government scrapes to find missing billions, the price per night of French President Nicolas Sarcozy’s suite in Cannes last week for the G20 summit is a little provocative. Because Sarcozy is a little bitch who doesn’t give a shit about his people or their money, he decided to rent a 37,000 Euro per night suite in order to have a comfortable place to fuck hookers provided by lobbyists, drink expensive wine, and suck banker dick. Are you even surprised at how much of a “Fuck you!” this is to regular people who he is forcing to swallow the austerity pill so his rich friends don’t lose too much money?"

 

The article goes on to list the per night costs of a few other G-20 leaders’ suites:

 

Obama: 35,000 Euros

Italy’s Berlusconi: 29,000 Euros.

China’s Hu Jintao: a very thrifty 11,600 Euros ($16,000) per night.

 

And, there you have it. Nicolas Sarcozy is first among the assholes of the G20. Congratulations, Nic! You wasted to most of your broke-ass country’s money!

Nice find, + 1.

Here's a clip:

"DEBKAfile's military sources note that Russia and America adopted aggressive postures on Nov. 12, when two American carriers, the USS Bush and USS Stennis sailed through the Strait of Hormuz side by side and took up position opposite the Iranian coast.

That was also the day when a mysterious explosion at the Revolutionary Guards base near Tehran wiped out the entire leadership of Iran's ballistic missile program."

The latter sentence is of interest...

I agree, squirrel!

since I disagree with most comments I'll have to repost from further below:


Iran's oil is needed in China, where a lot of Western Capital is invested, including all the production machinery that left the USA through Mexico. Iran's oil is therefore needed for the Chinese products exported to the West.

What I want to say is that Iran is, IMHO, just a good reason for the Military Industrial Complex to keep selling arms.

And yet Sarkozy was saying to Obama that he found Netanyahu tiresome (or similar).  War with Iran would indeed get people's minds off the financial crisis for now, but would lead to a monster load of other problems (start by cutting of oil shipments throught the Starits of Hormuz, at least for a while).

If war comes, it will be a air and maybe sea war.  No way a land war, except for maybe Special Forces kind of stuff.

If war comes, my guess is that it would crush the markets, except perhaps domestic oil companies and weapons manufcaturers.

True it would cause economic problems, but people are willing to put up with all manner of deprivations in the name of a war.  The masses will rally around their leaders, just or unjust.  Then it provides a handy scapegoat.  "The economy was just about to recover then __________ did ____________ and now we are in a war, so it's all ________________'s fault"  It's kinda like mad libs.

Didn't mean it as a demand at all, Lord knows the world is going to pot and everyone's got to batten down the hatches.  Appreciate you guys posting your experiences.  After all a lot of us Americans have pretty limited experience with being overseas.  You were right about Riga, been dreaming of going back and I just did a rushed trip through there. 

One thing I would like to see more on is the dealing of physical PMs with the single dude travel lifestyle.  Normally the idea of those holding physical are instead hunkering down.  Shit I'm a big guy and have been busting my ass to get in shape and I wouldn't like to carry my silver overland for any meaningful distance.  So how do you guys take care of that?

@ Shameful,

Good seeing you around.  Riga?  Maybe for visiting, but it is in a BAD neighborhood.

I suppose there is a push/pull: single dude travel vs. holding a large amount of PMs.  I could see that as a tough choice!  IF we move (to Peru) it would be as a one time deal, and yes, we would take our gold with us and sell the silver first.  Wire transfer out whatever we could as well.

Been reading, just not to much to add to the discussion.  Pretty common knowledge here what is going on.  Those that want to know what is happening will find out.

Oh don't doubt Latvia would be in a bad way if a war broke out, but most places would.  I suppose South America might be semi untouched by conflict but who knows.  I've just been looking at job opportunities and hedging my collapse bets.  At this point got a promising offer but still dickering about money and something else on the back burner which would get me out of the states.  Seeing what opportunities are out there.

You guys are right about dumping the silver, just loathe to do that.  Seen great gains, but expect to see even more.  But my wealth in gold would be pretty damn easy to move...and probably demoralizing "All my net worth is this little pile?".  So if I go mobile I guess it would be all in on gold.

Israel had, in early 2010, 600 nuclear-tipped missiles at a minimum.  Read this from Justin Raimondo, Antiwar.com.

“The irony of the Israeli push to sanction and threaten Iran over its alleged nuclear weapons program – a program, by the way, which our own intelligence community believes was abandoned in 2003 – is that it has focused unwanted attention on the one country in the region which already has nukes: Israel. With 600 nuclear-tipped missiles, at a minimum, armed and aimed at god-knows-who, Israel has stubbornly refused to even acknowledge the existence of such a formidable arsenal. There is a certain hollow ring to the outrage of Israeli leaders as they accuse Iran of violating the terms of a treaty Israel has steadfastly refused to sign…

Israel has spent the last few years claiming Iran’s alleged pursuit of nukes represents an ‘existential threat,’ but what will they say to a proposal for general and complete nuclear disarmament? If the threat were real, they’d agree immediately. Since there is no such threat, however, existential or otherwise, and since in reality the threat comes from nuclear-armed Israel, and not (as yet) Iran, the Israelis have absolutely no interest in giving up their nuclear trump card. After all, they may have to play it some day…  – Justin Raimondo, A Realistic Breakthrough, May 2, 2010

that would be something, but no war is started because soldiers want to fight and die so much, government posesses all necessary resources to make populace scared shitless to go into war, because it is seemingly an only solution. people prior to WWI or WWII were hardly dumber than today's 16-18 year olds - yet they were sucked into a terrible conflict that consumed millions of them. very unfortunate, but with current level of geopolitical tensions, the war and i mean a really big one is quite inevitable. the world is once again on a collision course between several rival centres of power - one side looking to assert, the other one looking to preserve a status quo at any cost. add to that global labour glut and you have all the components for major blow up. Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan were just a rehearsal for the bigger play.

    and the PTB's just keep sticking right to that script don't they? I am obligated to point out however that this time the economic problems just might be a tad to large for them to point Iran and yell "nuclear bomb"! and expect anybody to actually turn their heads, look and go "oh yeah, now there is the real problem, we should probably do something about that, like, bomb them!"

    No, I think this time the giant economic abyss the common people are staring into has their full and undivided attention...

    so President Sarkozy, you can if you wish continue to yell and flap your arms like a Muppet about Iran, but it's kind of hard to direct people's attention to the largely overstated and underwhelming perception of danger in a theater thousands of miles away, whilst the one you are managing is burning to the ground. 

    in other words, I don't think anybody particularly gives a shit what you think about the status of Iran's nuclear program at this time.

    Formerly known as Persia, Iran was given it's current name with a little assistance from our old pal's, the Nazis? around 1935, if i am not mistaken, Iran meaning "Aryan".

    From Wikipedia:

    In the Western world, Persia (or its cognates) was historically the common name for Iran. In 1935, Reza Shah asked foreign delegates to use the term Iran (the historical name of the country, used by its native people) in formal correspondence. Since then, in the Western World, the use of the word "Iran" has become more common. This also changed the usage of the names for the Iranian nationality, and the common adjective for citizens of Iran changed from Persian to Iranian. In 1959, the government of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, Reza Shah Pahlavi's son, announced that both "Persia" and "Iran" could officially be used interchangeably.[1] Nonetheless, the word "Iran" has replaced "Persia" in the common usage.

    The term "Iran" derives immediately from Middle Persian ?r?n, Pahlavi ?yr?n, first attested in an inscription that accompanies the investiture relief of the first Sassanid king Ardashir I at Naqsh-e Rustam.[2] In this inscription, the king's Middle Persian appellation is ardaš?r š?h?n š?h ?r?n while in the Parthian language inscription that accompanies the Middle Persian one the king is titled ardaš?r š?h?n š?h ary?n (Pahlavi: ... ?ry?n) both meaning king of kings of Iranians.

    The gentilic ?r- and ary- in ?r?n/ary?n derives from Old Iranian *arya-[2] (Old Persian ariya-, Avestan airiia-, etc.), meaning "Aryan,"[2] in the sense of "of the Iranians."[2][3] This term is attested as an ethnic designator in Achaemenid inscriptions and in Zoroastrianism's Avesta tradition,[4][n 1] and it seems "very likely"[2] that in Ardashir's inscription ?r?n still retained this meaning, denoting the people rather than the empire

    The fact of the matter is, no matter whose side you're on or what you believe, Israel will not allow Iran to have nukes.  Thus, anyone not in the game must pick a side, that of Iran or that of Israel.  You can be sure that the traditional western powers, in spite of personal differences with Bibi, will side with Israel...geoplolitics.  Whether some of you consider this a distraction or not, the time is short before Israel launches a pre-emtive strike.  If you are Sarkozy do you want to look stupid as a world leader and look like you don't know what's going on?  Do you want to look like a friend of the bad guys?  Or, do you want to look like the knight in shining armor with your white cowboy hat while trying to show your disatisfied public that you are indeed, one of the good guys.  This is just merely posturing for an event that was destined to happen quite some time ago.  Grab your ankles, cause gas lines will become war zones.

    Israel wants other countries to fight her battles, so expect Israeli intelligence to craft a scheme, arrogantly as always because the US press is controlled and Israel thinks it can convince Americans to do anything.  

    If you are correct and Israel launches direct strikes against Iran, then Israel will get the historical beat-down earlier than I expected.  

    As more people figure out that Israel did 9/11, USS Liberty and Lavon Affair et al become common conversation among everyday Americans who are waking up, the bunch of murderous psychopaths running Israel become more like a rabid cornered animal with each day.  I agree w/you now is the time to pick sides, and history is not on the side of today's parasitic evildoers.  God help us all.

    Wall Street ‘Mob’ Bankrolls Powerful Rep. Eric Cantor November 04, 2011 admin

    By Michael Collins Piper -

    http://mikepiperreport.com/House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) captured media attention with his vocal declaration that participants in the Occupy Wall Street movement were nothing more than “mobs.” His word choice was interesting since the public record indicates that Cantor does indeed know much about mobs—the Wall Street mob, in particular. If there’s any one single member of Congress who can be reckoned a voice for Wall Street, it is Cantor.

    Even the most cursory review of Cantor’s campaign financing demonstrates that a literal handful of billionaires in the global financial plutocracy—all intimately tied to the London-based Rothschild family—have been key forces underwriting Cantor’s career, a point (especially in light of his immense power) that cannot be taken lightly.

    The truth is that Cantor is one of the very few in Congress— 535 members strong—who has some of the richest and most powerful people in the world bankrolling his political endeavors.

    It is for good reason that wags say Cantor is now “the cantor of the House”—a play on words. A cantor is the person in a synagogue who leads chants and prayers along with the rabbi, a major religious role.

    4 REVOLUTIONS WERE ENGINEERED BY WORLD JEWRY.

    The first was the English Revolution in 1649 which was financed by Jews from Holland, in which Cromell committed regicide. As the Jewish financiers dictated, Cromwell opened the doors for the return of the ousted Jews to England in 1656.

    Building from this, World Jewry initiated, financed, and agitated the French Revolution beginning in 1788, resulting again in regicide and the Jewish subverting of the established Christian order. And Jews profited once again, for in 1789, all civil disabilities against the Jews in France were lifted and the Great Emancipation of the Jews took place.

    The third Revolution was the Bolshevik uprising in Russia, of which this treatise focuses. The Bolshevik Revolution was financed by Jewish bankers, led by Jacob H Schiff of the Jewish Banking house, Kuhn, Loeb Co. Jews gained prominent roles in the Soviet government, and for the 3rd time, regicide of a Christian ruler was perpetrated by the Jews.

    Dr. Fahey, in his authenticated work, The Rulers Of Russia quotes an American missionary stationed in St Petersburg from 1907 to 1918: “In October 1918, out of 388 members of the revolutionary government only 16 happened to be real Russians. All the rest were Jews with the exception of one negro. Many of these Jews came from the Lower East Side of New York.”

    The fourth Revolution was the Spanish Civil War of 1936, financed by Bolshevik Jewry, but successfully opposed by Franco and Germany.

    A FIFTH REVOLUTION on an International scale is now at work and headquartered in America. This is the Zionist agenda to create a New World Order whose oligarchs are Jews with names that include: Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, and William Kristol, the Zionist neocon advisors to the Jewish-bought President George Bush.

    The Israel Lobby known as AIPAC is the organizational apparatus of the 5th Revolution now in the making.

    IN THE DARK NIGHT OF JULY 16 1918, Tzar Nicholas II and his pious Christian family were shot and bayoneted in cold blood by these Cheka Jews:

    1. Jacob Yurovksy, a Jewish Czech
    2. Sergei Medvedjev
    3. Lev Nikulin, a Jewish Czech
    4. Peter Yermakov
    5. Fyodor Vaganov, a New York Jew
    6. Jacob Sverdlov, (Yankel Solomon), the first President of the Soviet Union. He gave the order to murder the Royal Family. Sverdlov began his Anti Christian career when he joined the Russian Social Democratic Labour Party in 1902.

     

    *** This was the beginning of the wholesale slaughter of over 8,000,000 Russian Orthodox Christians from 1918 through 1943. ***

     

     

    THE LEADING JEWISH MURDERERS

     

    a) Leon Bronstein (Trotsky), Commander of the Soviet Red Army. 

    b)

     

    Grigory Apfelbaum (Zinoviev), Director, Soviet Secret Police, seized Church-owned property, murdered tens of thousands of Orthodox Christians.

    c) Maxim Wallach (Litvinov), Soviet Foreign Minister.

    d) Solomon Lozovsky, Deputy Soviet Foreign Minister.

    e) Yuri Andropov, Jewish Director of the Soviet KGB

    A PROMINENT JEWISH JOURNALIST now admits that in 1934, 38% of those holding high office in Stalin’s murderous regime were Jews:

    1. Lazar Moiseyevich Kaganovich: Millions of Orthodox Christians were murdered by order of Kaganovich. He orderered the destruction of hundreds of Christian churches including Christ The Saviour Cathedral in Moscow.

    In 1991, after living the life of a prince, Kaganovich committed suicide in fear of the “open society,” that is, “glasnot” which would have exposed his murderous deeds.

    2. Ilya Ehrenburg: Minister of Soviet Propaganda for Stalin. He wrote, “The Germans are not human beings. Nothing gives us greater joy than corpses of Germans.”

    3. Yevgeny Khaldei: Red Army photographer. Born in the Ukraine of Jewish parents. He staged the raising of the Hammer & Sickle Flag in the German Reichstag in Berlin in 1945, the emblem of the slaughter of millions of peasants and Christians, describing it as “the Russian national symbol of justice, triumph, and revenge.”

    4. Bela Kun (Cohen): Dictator of Hungary in 1919. Kun was later Stalin’s chief terrorist in the Crimea. Kun’s eventual successor was Matyas Rakosi, a Jewish Communist mass murderer of Christians in Hungary.

    5. Moshe Pijade: Commander, Yugoslav Communist People’s Army. Tito’s top butcher of hundreds of thousands of Yugoslavian Christians.

    Sarkozy believes sanctions on Iran “would force Iran to negotiate.”  And as Ron Paul said yesterday while making Bob Schieffer look like a biased, opinionated, war-prone old man gone far beyond any competence as a journalist, sanctions lead to war (Iraq).

    This is why you cause Zionists and Zionist toadies to be placed in key positions whether they be U.S. State Department officials or heads of government: it is to perform when needed.

    The reason they are in place is to follow the Israeli Lobby instructions passed on by Netanyahu.

    We can’t have representatives like this anymore; we can’t have a toady for the Israeli Lobby as President of the United States. A superpower does not exist for years as the errand entity for a small dependent country.

    John F. Kennedy Oppossed Israel’s Power

    http://www.veteranstoday.com/2011/11/21/john-f-kennedy-oppossed-israels-power/

    by Bob Johnson

     

    Tomorrow, November 22, 2011 is the 48th anniversary of the assassination of U.S. President John F. Kennedy. One part of JFK’s character which will not be covered by the mass media is his courageous opposition to the power Israel enjoys over the United States of America.

    In the thought provoking book, They Dare to Speak Out by Paul Findley we read on page 114 that during Kennedy’s campaign for president in 1960 he had a

    meeting with some prominent Jews. Kennedy was very insulted when one of the Jews said they knew Kennedy’s campaign was in financial difficulty and that he and his Jewish friends would “help and help significantly” John Kennedy’s campaign if, as president, Kennedy “would allow them to set the course of Middle East policy over the next four years.” It was this meeting that made JFK want to work for a law that would have the U.S. Treasury pay a set and equal amount for all politicians running for president who secured a to be determined percentage of signatures of people supporting their campaign. He saw this as the only way to prevent the nightmare of today, which has not only the President, but the overwhelming majority of people in Congress bought and paid for by the very powerful Israeli lobby. Israel’s lobby is so strong that hardly any politician will disobey their orders regarding U.S. Middle East foreign policy. And that includes starting wars, such as the war in Iraq, which benefit Israel and harm America and the rest of the world.

    In Seymour Hersh’s insightful book, The Samson Option, which addresses Israel’s nuclear weapons arsenal, Hersh covers John Kennedy’s fight to stop Israel’s nuclear proliferation. He writes that Kennedy was “fixated” on stopping the Jewish state’s nuclear build up.

    Another interesting point in Hersh’s book is that the Democrat John Kennedy appointed a Republican, John A. McCone, to lead the C.I.A. because McCone was not afraid to confront Israel about its nuclear weapons work at Dimona. In 1965 McCone resigned because Lyndon Johnson was afraid to confront Israel as Kennedy had done and Johnson was scared he would lose Jewish votes and support if he did try to stop Israel’s nuclear weapons program. In 1965 the Gilpatric report, which has since been declassified, called for the U.S. to pressure other nations, including Israel, to not build nuclear weapons. Johnson ignored and suppressed the report. Every politician after Kennedy toed the line with the Israeli lobby after the assassination of John Kennedy.

    LIES

    Why Not Protect the World by Dropping a Few Bunker Busters on Dimona?

    So, where do the lies start and how do they apply?

    If Iran has had nukes for a decade, bought, perhaps embarrassingly, instead of crated by “science,” the whole thing, as Mike Harris describes, is a charade.

    I think this part is a “slam dunk.”

    Another “whopper” is the “peek-a-boo” Israel/Nuke issue. They have them.

    They are illegal, so their aid should be stopped and the US should stop vetoing UN sanctions against Israel.

    Under the NeoCon Project for a New American Century, partially conceived in Israel, we should use it’s ‘preemptive strike’ rational to attack the Dimona facility as we know for sure that illegal nuclear weapons are made there.

    And we should send in troops to seize the rest of them. This is our legal obligation.

    Then there is the trail that Dimitri Khalezov has led us on, the former Russian government nuclear security officer. Here is an interview done on the Kevin Barrett show:
