Global stability remains precarious and will continue to deteriorate steadily as the dollar continues to lose sway as the global financial monolith.
India is being pressured by the US State Department (with staggering hubris) to reduce their oil procurement from Iran. America, a country with a population of 310 million, and consumer of 25% of total world oil production is commanding India, a country of 1.2 billion, to abate their oil imports under US demand.
They’re not even giving the courtesy of disguising their pretentiousness that goes along with international politics this time. This is being conducted unilaterally. Another way of putting it: “Because I say so! That’s why!” This could backfire drastically if India does the right thing and begins to make payment in bullion. The rest of the OPEC nations would likely follow suit and begin to exchange their black gold for shiny yellow gold. This would be the end of paper money around the world. Which in itself is not such a bad idea.
The Russians and the Chinese are getting irritated with this irrational American exuberance for WWIII. This is not actually what the American people want, but as former Vice President Dick Cheney once remarked in an interview with ABC’s Good Morning America, when the White House correspondent said polls show that two-thirds of Americans believe the war is not worth fighting, Cheney responded with a ‘so?’
On the other side of the globe, the Secretary of Defense [sic] Leon Panetta has pledged yet more American blood and treasure for plunder on behalf of Israel in case Israel engages in a war against Iran. Under the auspices of protecting American interests in the region of course.
How much interest does the average American have in the Middle East with the real unemployment rate hovering around 22.5% and with inflation taking its toll?
The only investment the average American has in the Middle East is their twenty-some-year-old son or daughter stuck in the sandbox. Kids who most likely enlisted in order to avoid their mundane existence as a college debt-slave with no job to look forward to, or as a minimum-wage earner with little chance of ‘making it big’.
Even a McDonald’s job is hard to come by nowadays. On April 19, 2011 McDonald’s great idea of hiring 50,000 people in one day yielded a myriad of videos on YouTube of people assaulting each other, and even one vehicular attack on the parking lot over a job!
There is a simple solution that would solve all of America’s problems within two to three years. It would be a bitter pill to swallow, but it would be the only way out of this conundrum. As Thomas Woods teaches from the pages of history about the depression everyone forgot about:
[The United States] allowed its economy to readjust. ‘In 1920–21,’ writes Anderson, we took our losses, we readjusted our financial structure, we endured our depression, and in August 1921 we started up again…
The rally in business production and employment that started in August 1921 was soundly based on a drastic cleaning up of credit weakness, a drastic reduction in the costs of production, and on the free play of private enterprise. It was not based on governmental policy designed to make business good.
[He goes on to write that] the experience of 1920–1921 reinforces the contention of genuine free-market economists that government intervention is a hindrance to economic recovery. It is not in spite of the absence of fiscal and monetary stimulus that the economy recovered from the 1920–1921 depression. It is because those things were avoided that recovery came. (Source)
Getting rid of government bureaucracy would greatly help the economy. The parasitic organism we have learned to call ‘government’ is currently in the process of killing its host. The chances of the government leaving us alone is minuscule, unfortunately. Thus what is left is a painful end. Another war? Or can the sudden and immediate collapse of the dollar actually be our saving grace? Is that why the war planners are in such a hurry? Can they see that the end is nigh?
With the insanity being peddled by DHS, it should not come as a shock when the war does start. When the internment camps begin to sprawl up across the land of the free as a measure against the ‘insurgent’ bogeymen that will have swam from Iran to hate on us for our freedoms. That might sound silly, but when DHS’s own documents are stating that: “Exaggerated yawning when engaged in conversation,” “glances,” “cold penetrating stare,” “rigid posture,” and “goose bumps” could be an indication that you’re a terrorist — anything’s possible, as we find ourselves tumbling deeper and deeper down the rabbit hole.
