I have tried to figure out where all of the geopolitical events have been pointing to over the last several years and more so this past 12 months. As you know I believed that China has been positioning herself as the “financier” and Russia as the “muscle.” Just over the last 2 months this courtship has flourished and gone way past just “kissing.”
The situation in the Middle East has gotten sideways as ISIS is now altering and testing so many of the past allegiances. The Syrians, Iraqis, Saudi Arabians, Egyptians and Iranians are all affected by the ISIS movements. The Syrians and Iraqis are currently at battle with ISIS while the Egyptians and Saudis have mobilized personnel and equipment at their borders in anticipation of need. The Iranians and Russians have pledged support in protection of Iraq, so far 5 promised Russian MIG fighters have arrived. Iran has warned Washington to stay out of it, yet President Obama has asked for $500 million from Congress to supply the Iraqis.
The situation is very confusing because in reality the U.S. is funding (has funded) both sides. ISIS is an offshoot of Al Qaeda. Unbelievably the U.S. gave them funding and arms to wreak havoc in Syria, they have now turned, decimated and claimed parts of northern Iraq. They previously abolished Saudi, Prince Bandar warned about this situation several months back. He is now back as a (the) top advisor in Saudi Arabia and is warning that ISIS will turn toward the Saudis. Please understand how convoluted this has become because the Saudis are mainly Sunni, so is ISIS. The point that I am trying to make here is that previous alliances and grievances are changing and even switching sides; the situation is very volatile and let’s not forget the “business side” of it. This warfare is taking place in and around oil fields and pipelines which is why any of the large powers have an interest in the first place.
With the above in mind, ask yourself what the Chinese and Russians must think of what is happening. What must they think of U.S. stance and policy? Do they even know which side we are on? Do we? Does Washington? My point is this, they do not know what to expect out of the U.S. anymore. It used to be that the world knew exactly where we stood and what we would do if crossed, this no longer exists.
OK, we also know for a fact that the Chinese/Russian alliance is planning a push to unseat the dollar as the world’s reserve currency. We just got this news out of Russia that a “World Bank” is planned by the Chinese before the end of the year. We have seen energy deals, currency swap deals and even physical gold exchanges being created to compete directly with the COMEX and LBMA paper “comic” exchanges. It is clear that this is happening, being done on purpose and has been in the planning stages for quite a while (probably since 2008).
I have a theory that makes sense even if you do not understand the geopolitics of it all but makes perfect sense when the geopolitical background is known. I believe that the Russians and the Chinese are fearful of how the U.S. will act in the Middle East. Who will we side with? Will we try to secure oil production and delivery (as we have for 70+ years) via proxy or outright aggression? If the situation were to go against our wishes would we use (again?) tactical nuclear weapons? Could a nuclear war go full on foolish? I don’t believe that China or Russia really knows the answers to this because there probably are no correct answers as scattered as our foreign policy and response is in its current state.
I believe that the real question at this point is how Russia and China neutralize the possibility that the U.S. does something really foolish, here is my theory. I believe that the Russians and Chinese have already figured out that the best way to diffuse the situation ahead of time is financially. It is my opinion that they know that if they crash the dollar it will make it very difficult for us to operate. Just as Napoleon ran out of money and had to retreat, I believe this is again the strategy, to make us “run out of money.” If the dollar were purposely crashed, our bond markets hit with sales AND the price of gold marked up in huge fashion it would weaken our war making ability. Truly the easiest way to crash the dollar is to put gold and silver into orbit, (another way would be if a scandal so big, TOO BIG for even the American people to sleep through were to come to light. Keep this one in the back of your mind because we do live with a closet full of skeletons).
If I know this and you know this…they knew this before we did. They have the financial ability and the “weight” already stacked and vaulted with a physical exchange close to going live. Let’s call it “motive, ability, and need.” Usurping the U.S. has been the plan in my opinion for at least 5 years now, however the situation has become dangerous, U.S. foreign policy has become a loose cannon and “time” is running out. When I say that time is running out I will finish with the old saying “desperate people do desperate things,” sometimes it’s a good thing to stop them ahead of time. I think this is exactly what the Russians and Chinese are thinking; they need to stop us from doing something desperate. If they can do this financially there is a possibility that no shots will be fired, slim but still a chance.
“…another way would be if a scandal so big, TOO BIG for even the American people to sleep through…”
Bill, I think the American people are waking up. Two recent Gallup polls show shocking results, that American’s trust in the Supreme Court is at record lows (only 30%) and that 79% believe that corruption is widespread in American government:
To me, those polls and the plummeting viewership and readership of the weakstream media show that big change is afoot in the minds of many, many Americans.
To me, there is hope that Americans will be awake enough to resist — or at least not cooperate — with a naked, physical takeover attempt by a desperate, cornered American government and their armed, hired thugs.
yes, but the public is not in any mind to stand up against or for anything.
Bill: most definitely “something wicked this way comes”. I imagine that another 9/11 type of plan will be unleashed upon us before too long. A distraction from the obvious corruption and purposeful decimation of the middle class is required. But it definitely won’t be any Obama skeletons emerging. It would be a good distraction, but it won’t have the proper cowering effect on the masses. God help us all.
how about the snowden revelations? would that work?
Any more Snowden revelations would not have the effect desired by the psychos. After all, the fact that every phone call and email is recorded somewhere actually just drives home the idea that “they’ know everything and therefore it may be useless to resist unless you want to be “disappeared”. It has to be something that the elites feel will band the country together against a common enemy wherein people will fear this outside force more than their government.
unless it is something that true patriots reveal to prevent war by tanking the dollar, markets etc. Offhand, what would documented proof of who and how about the twin towers were accomplished? Would the markets even open if this information were to come out? Just an example and I don’t have a clue what could come out, my point is that there is a movement to unveil truth which would hit the dollar, bonds and equities hard enough to prevent war. Paul Craig Roberts is an example.
Great point, Bill.
I had not considered the idea that Snowden might reveal such info as that.
I thought your article today was great and you are just getting better and better.
Another 911 coming?
All I hear on cable news now is ISIS is a threat, they have US made stinger missiles and passports. My guess is the next false flag might be commercial airliners taken down in the US. After not able to start a war in Syria a few months ago, they need to rally the population again like 911. My worry is will they go bigger than 911 this time? I thought Putin has proof 911 was inside job, that story faded away last month. Agree the Russians and Chinese know us won’t go down without a fight. Scary part is all mankind could be wiped out so easily in the process. Russia / china may just do the Hail Mary pass. Either way something had to break soon , can’t go on forever. Gets worse everyday . I wish I had more time and money to prepare if it ends up non nuclear, else it won’t matter anyway .
