A World On The Verge Of War?

Tyler Durden's picture


Here is a summary of where the world stands:

From Reuters:

Members of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) are providing non-military assistance in Syria and Iran may get involved militarily if its closest ally comes under attack, commander-in-chief Mohammad Ali Jafari said on Sunday.


Jafari's statement is the first official acknowledgement that Iran has a military presence on the ground in Syria where an 18-month-old uprising has left tens of thousands dead.


Western countries and Syrian opposition groups have long suspected Iran has troops in Syria. Iran has denied this.


"A number of members of the Qods force are present in Syria but this does not constitute a military presence," Iranian news agency ISNA quoted Jafari as saying at a news conference.


Qods is an IRGC unit set up to export Iran's ideology. It has been accused of plotting attacks inside Iraq since the overthrow of Saddam Hussein.


Jafari did not indicate how many IRGC members were in Syria but said they were providing "intellectual and advisory help".


The Islamic Republic has backed Syria's President Bashar al-Assad since the crisis began and regards his rule as a key part of its axis of resistance against Israel and Sunni Arab states.


Jafari also said Iran would change its policy and offer military backing if Syria came under attack.


"I say specifically that if Syria came under military attack, Iran would also give military support but it ... totally depends on the circumstances," he said.

Next up: satellite photos somewhere "confirming" beyond a reasonable doubt that weapons of mass destruction are being prepared for usage, and a preemptive war is the only way to not only preserve peace, but to be awarded the Nobel prize in said activity.

What is perfectly obvious to anyone but the most jaded and biased, is that the West will use any opportunity of conflict escalation which in turn will send crude, and gas, prices soaring, to commence the launch of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve release, arguably at just the right time to push down gas prices, which as we showed on Friday have never been higher on this day in history. "Right time", because any SPR release will have the short-term benefit of boosting Obama's re-election chances even more, even if it means surging gas prices after the election.

The reality of course is that the bulk of upside pressure on commodity (crude and gas included) prices is as a result of the Fed and ECB's recent monetization expansion and liquidity tsunami, which does the usual: soothes the symptoms for a few weeks, crushes volatility and creates the impression that all is well.... if only to lead to yet another far more grave outcome. And since there is now officially no limit much debt the Fed will monetize, there is so no limit on how high commodity prices will go.

So while in reality any war, supposedly one which is "regional" and "contained" will merely be a smokescreen to the central banks officially taking over ownership of the insolvent developed world, the likelihood is that a war will neither be "regional" nor "contained" as both countries that make up the axis of a future hard-backed currency, China and Russia, have already made it quite clear that any intervention by the US in regions they themselves consider strategic, such as the Senkaku Islands, Syria and/or Iran, will result in retaliation.

And retaliation by one or more rising superpowers to another fading superpower, will inevitably lead to yet another World War.

Needless to say, nobody could possibly foresee war as the outcome to the global depression ver 2.0: certainly not the Princeton historian who will be, more than anyone else, responsible for it.

I have never denied that the collapse of the regime of irredeemable 

currency could take the form of a hyperinflation. However, we would be hard 

put to find an historical example of a hyperinflation that was not preceded by 

war or civil war destroying supplies and production facilities. On the other hand, 

we know that a depression could often push the government into a shooting war. 

Today, the president can start wars anytime, anywhere in the world 

at pleasure, and a pre-emptive attack on Iran is badly itching. If such an attack 

materializes, all bets on a deflationary scenario are off.

Question would be, does going into a war or civil war causes hyperinflation or regimes go to war when they see hyperinflation coming, or more appropriately they have caused hyperinflation.

You steal what you can from the sheeple and then send them to their death, sounds logical.

The above list is mostly powder keg, and powder kegs are always at play somewhere in the world. Think spark.

Iran-Israel could provide ignition, but the U.S. election is an escalating element, too.

Romney needs to appear like he would be tougher. Obama a year ago had the option of the presidential, diplomatic response. Now he needs to preempt Romney as the tough guy.

This means for the next seven weeks, any U.S. response will begin one octave or degree higher than it normally would.

Hmmm....that would be the war precipitated by the slant drilling into Iraqi territory by that Kuwaiti-American oil company, whose board of directors sat one Richard Armitage, who would later be a member of ChoicePoint's board of directors during their involvement with the stolen election in Florida in 2000?

On a far more important historical note:

The Lion's Warning 

It has become almost traditional at every anniversary of 9/11 to mention all those warnings from American and foreign intelligence agencies, compulsively ignored by the Cheney-Bush administration.


While those are all well and true, it should never be forgotten that repeated warnings were also coming from a warrior-commander far away in Afghanistan, Ahmad Shah Massoud, known as the Lion of Panjshir for his fighting to repel the Soviet invasion.


Commander Massoud, of the Northern Alliance he had formed to fight against the Taliban, had repeatedly attempted to warn the Bush administration of an impending terrorist attack, and had spoken of such in a speech several months earlier he had given to the European Parliament.


Told of several journalists who wished to interview him, and ignoring the concerns of his aides, Commander Massoud made one last attempt to publicize his warning to America.


The two reporters turned out to be imposters, cowardly dogs of Al-Qaeda, who would self-detonate to murder the noble Massoud, who made the ultimate sacrifice in his final attempt to warn America!


One can only wonder what Ahmad Shah Massoud, the martyred commander might have elaborated about after the attacks on 9/11/01, and what his living testimony might have shed light upon?


Dead men tell no tales, but Americans should never forget this tale of yet another Muslim hero of 9/11, the Afghanistani warrior-leader who died trying to sound the alarm.


The Beloved Martyred Commander

Ahmad Shah Massoud

Sept. 2, 1953 --- Sept. 9, 2001


Hvil i frioi, Commander

You are waaaay off, sonny.  Excepting, the anti-mujahideen part --- FYI, dood, the Taliban derived from the Mujahideen, which was originally financed by the Carter/Reagan administrations, and their first misdeeds were to murder all the secularist Afghanistanis still in that country (academics, professionals, artists, etc.), before they even considered dealing with the Soviets!

Carter/Reagan came late into the scene. Taliban were trained by Pakistan well before and Col. Imam (trainer) asked them to provide an Islamic Scholar to keep them grounded hence you see the Shariah system in their reign. 

Here is the interview of Col Imam

As far as killing seculars, anyone with a turban is not Taliban. Colonel himself was killed by Fake Taliban group called TTP, while news repeatedly say he was killed by Taliban.

Doom's praise was directed towards the leader of the Alliance...the organization, like any organization of human beans, had it's share of dupliticious characters to be sure. Massoud stood out as the kind of leader who led from the heart - and just like all those others of his stature, was killed off by the sio-nazi cabal which has run the Merikan Secret Government since the 1950's.

Massoud. Bhutto. Frank Pais. Giants amongst us.

I predict the first use of EMP weapons will happen over Iran once the show begins. Probably a wave of three or four EMP tipped cruise missles timed to explode at low altitude simutaniously over various parts of Iran. That should turn off the lights for awhile. Then comes the following waves of bunker busters and conventional cruise missles. Hope the 5th Fleet is far enough away and those EMPs don't detonate too high up or Mr. Murphy is gonna laugh his ass off.

FW190, Good plane by the way! Are you implying that the EMP weapons will be small nuclear weapons? Or has the military developed a conventional EMP weapon big enough to mimic a small nuke.

Just as a point, I understod that a good EMP effect required a high altitude detonation.

Still, EMP could also be used to throw the US military back to the stone age if an enemy had an EMP weapon that worked. Without electronic superiority, the US military is just another bunch of guys with rifles.

fockewulf190's picture

Read up on conventional EMP weapons here: 

Limited ranged EMP weapons could do the job of knocking out air defences, radar, and command and control around critical targets.

Nuclear EMP detonations at high altitude would produce a Carrington Effect just like the Sun would if the Earth received a direct hit from a massive CME. 

Indeed, the US, as well as most other nations on the Earth, are highly vunerable to an EMP attack.  A successful attack can easily kill millions and millions of people from starvation alone.

It sure would.  Also ask yourself this, in the uS we have 11 carriers I believe why put 3 and possibly 4 in order to have "training".  Thats not what they are there for, they are setting up for a major air attack to take down all of Irans infrastructure.  I used to be in the Navy and you don't move a carrier by itself, it's in a carrier group.  And when you move those ships in one area of the world, it leaves holes in the defense of US and NATO defenses.  It's also expensive for just a show of force that "won't" be used.  No, an attack is about to happen and it will be the worst thing we could do.

Actually the rabbit hole goes much deeper.

There will be a switch of ruling state of the world with the help of WW3. From US to Israel, same way WW2 passed the baton from UK to US.

US although a great country would be take down with subversion, debt, wars and economic mismanagement.


Here are some highlights:

Real Muslim countries will make alliance with Russia, China and Orthodox Christians.

Israel will be surrounded by Governments of US's Arab Legions like Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaeda, LeJ e.g. Egypt, Libya, etc. 

Israel will have a false flag which will result in war and subsequent annihilation of Arabs either by conventional or biological weapons.

Israel will take over Middle East and become a ruling state.

Maybe War will be the October surprise 


"The classic definition of an October surprise — a term popularized by Ronald Reagan in 1980 — is timely news orchestrated by a president to help his own re-election. " Now it’s more broadly applied to any unexpected development with potential to sway the race toward one candidate or the other.

Is your point that we don't know what the exact catalyst will be? If so, I guess I agree.

However, while the particular catalyzing event may or may not be a "surprise", the fact of its occurrence will not be.

Does Denniger realize Egypt and Iran are enemies and Egyptians are not sacking embassies to save Iran. Neither is Libya. Why are no embassies beiong attacked by Iranians? The whole premise is so easily refuted you would think the person who uttered it is completlet ignorant. The theory is not interesting. It is just wrong. and ignorant of the facts.

We don't have an embassy in Iran for them to attack we haven't had one since 1980. The attacks aren't being done by the Egyptian government so I don't know what that has to do with whether or not the Egyptian Military rulers are friends with the Iranians. Same with Libya done by the people not the government. But you can go ask him and tell him how ignorant he is.

The industrial-defense complex loves destuction. Huge amounts of destruction takes care of the jobless rates and eventually creates demand.  The bigger the bombs, the better.

The US destroyed and created demand. The US was the industrial leader before WWII. Now China is the industrial leader. So does China end up the world leader after this WW?

Reminds me of the Rothschild in the early 18 hundereds when at the battle of Waterloo, they got to know that the British forces were winning the war, so they quickly spread the rumor that the French forces are winning the battle and the brits are biting the dust. So the market crashed and then they "Bought The Fucking Dip", when the real news came, the pigs are rich.
