Obama Declares War on Syria! Why the Real Target is Assad Not ISIS!

  • Obama Declares War on Syria! Why the Real Target is Assad Not ISIS! 
    by MIKE WHITNEY, http://www.counterpunch.org/ 
    Invoking the same ominous language as his predecessor, Barack Obama used a prime time presidential address on Wednesday to announce the beginning of a war on Syria. And while there’s no doubt that many Americans will be confused by Obama’s misleading focus on the terrorist organization named ISIL, the real purpose of the speech was to garner support for another decade of homicidal conflicts in the Middle East. The administration is as determined as ever to plunge the region into chaos, erase existing borders, and install its puppets wherever it can.  ISIL–which is mainly an invention of western Intel agencies and their treacherous counterparts in the Gulf– conveniently creates the justification for another bloody invasion followed by years of occupation, subjugation, and revolt.
    -
    Barack Obama:
    My fellow Americans — tonight, I want to speak to you about what the United States will do with our friends and allies to degrade and ultimately destroy the terrorist group known as ISIL. As commander-in-chief, my highest priority is the security of the American people…..
    -
    Thanks to our military and counterterrorism professionals, America is safer.
    -
    Still, we continue to face a terrorist threat. We cannot erase every trace of evil from the world, and small groups of killers have the capacity to do great harm. That was the case before 9/11, and that remains true today. That’s why we must remain vigilant as threats emerge.
    -
    Get it? We are all in great peril and only our loving father, Obama, can save us. Where have we heard that before?
    -
    Obama: “In a region that has known so much bloodshed, these terrorists are unique in their brutality. They execute prisoners. They kill children. They enslave, rape, and force women into marriage…..If left unchecked, these terrorists could pose a growing threat beyond that region — including to the United States.”
    -
    This is pure demagoguery, the likes of which we haven’t heard since Bush’s ”The Axis of Evil” speech.  The truth is, ISIL poses NO threat to US national security at all. It’s a joke.  Readers should mull that over before they throw their support behind Obama’s proposed crusade in Syria..
    -
    More Obama:  “First, we will conduct a systematic campaign of airstrikes against these terrorists…..I will not hesitate to take action against ISIL in Syria, as well as Iraq. This is a core principle of my presidency: if you threaten America, you will find no safe haven…..”
    -
    Okay, so borders don’t matter, international law doesn’t matter, national sovereignty doesn’t matter. What matters is oil, money and power. Isn’t that what he’s saying? He’s asking the American people to support another millennia of killing so he can pad the bank accounts of corrupt US oil magnates while strengthening America’s tenuous grip on global power.  Would you be willing to sacrifice your son’s life for such a cause?

The Geopolitics of World War III !

  • Samuel Huntington’s: Clash of Civilizations (Wikipedia)
    More recent factors contributing to a Western-Islamic clash, Huntington wrote, are the Islamic Resurgence and demographic explosion in Islam, coupled with the values of Western universalism—that is, the view that all civilizations should adopt Western values—that infuriate Islamic fundamentalists. All these historical and modern factors combined, Huntington wrote briefly in his Foreign Affairs article and in much more detail in his 1996 book, would lead to a bloody clash between the Islamic and Western civilizations. The political party Hizb ut-Tahrir also reiterate Huntington’s views in their published book, The Inevitability of Clash of Civilisation.[8]

  • Emphasis and comments mine:
    -
    Albert Pike’s Satanic World War 3 Plan
    The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the “agentur” of the “Illuminati” between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…
    -
    We shall unleash the Nihilists (ie. terrorists see definition below) and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil.
    -
    Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.” 4

  • Nihilism - A diffuse, revolutionary movement of mid 19th-century Russia that scorned authority and tradition and believed in reason, materialism, and radical change in society and government through terrorism and assassination.
    -
  • Dr. John Coleman Ex. British Intelligence
    By fabricating a bogus war between Islamic fundamentalism and the West, the globalists are able to attack their real enemy, humanity. Pulling the strings, they will ensure that both Western and Muslim states are degraded and finally completely subjugated to their odious rule.

ISIS, Russia, China, WW III And The New Economic World Order!

  • ISIS, Al Qaeda … are of course operated by the CIA, MI5/6 and Mossad!
  • ISIS, Russia, China, WW III And The New Economic World Order! 
    by Paul McGuire, September 9, 2014, www.NewsWithViews.com 
    The geopolitical conflict with Russia, Ukraine, EU, U.S., NATO, Great Britain, Syria, Iraq, Iran, China, and other nations is not necessarily about land or territory; it is about the all-out struggle between two global economic systems. The U.S., Great Britain, EU, NATO, and other nations and alliances are built upon preserving and strengthening the Transatlantic Union and the dollar as the defacto world currency. Russia, China, Iran, and the BRICS nations are attempting to topple the dollar as the world’s currency and replace it with multiple competing currencies or a new world currency.
    -
    All of the conflicts between Russia, Ukraine, Syria, China, Japan, Iraq, and even Isis are largely driven by global economic warfare for the establishment of a new world currency and a new world economic order. This struggle being played out with Russia and the Ukraine, Syria, Iraq, plus China’s intent on dominating Japan and the Pacific Rim region, could easily lead to a regional thermonuclear war and escalate to a global thermonuclear war with countless millions dying on multiple continents due to the radioactive fallout. In this scenario, organizations like the ISIS or the Islamic State, could detonate nukes or unleash biological warfare inside of the U.S., Europe, Great Britain, or Russia or against U.S. troops stationed in the Middle East.
    -
    However, ISIS (the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria) is now operating from Juarez, Mexico. Agents for Homeland Security and the Justice and Defense Departments have warned of a “Threat of an Imminent Terrorist Attack on the Southern Border of the U.S.” Intelligence officials have picked up chatter about terrorist groups planning to “carry out an attack on the border” and suspect that ISIS and other groups are already inside the U.S. One source stated “It’s coming very soon.”
    -
    Former Presidential nominee Mitt Romney wrote in the Opinion section of the Washington Post on September 4, 2014 the following:
    -
    “Russia invades, China bullies, Iran spins centrifuges, the Islamic State (a terrorist threat ‘beyond anything that we’ve seen,’ according to the defense secretary) threatens — and Washington slashes the military. Reason stares.
    -
    The president asserts that we must move to ‘a new order that’s based on a different set of principles, that’s based on a sense of common humanity.’ The old order, he is saying, where America’s disproportionate strength holds tyrants in check and preserves the sovereignty of nations, is to be replaced.”
    -
    The globalist elite in both Great Britain and the U.S. appear to be playing a dangerous game. On one hand they want the U.S. military and NATO to protect the sovereignty of the U.S. dollar and the trans-Atlantic economic system established by Great Britain and the U.S. Yet at the same time they have been devaluing the dollar and draining the Middle Class in America, Great Britain, and the EU of their wealth and transferring that wealth to rising economic powers like China, along with Third World nations controlled by dictatorial regimes. The globalist elite has been slashing the budgets of the U.S. military, while at the same time allowing the potential of a World War III scenario to grow daily. Based on face value this appears to be a schizophrenic policy. But, after examining the role that the international bankers played in World War I and World War II, where they financed both sides, you see the classic Hegelian Dialectic being used, where there is a thesis and antithesis being used to create a synthesis. In this case, you have Great Britain, the U.S., the Transatlantic Union, and the dollar as the world’s currency operating as a thesis. The BRICS nations, Russia, China, Iran, and other nations are uniting to create a new international world currency to replace the dollar. Collectively these nations represent the Antithesis.

Jim Willie: Saudi’s Are On The Verge of Joining Russia in Non-Dollar Oil Sales!

PetroDollar_Scam_Breaking_Down

  • Jim Willie: Saudi’s are on the verge of joining Russia in non-dollar oil sales! 
    by Kenneth Schortgen Jr, Finance Examiner 
    Last week, Russia announced an game changing shift for energy in which they are now allowing the sale of oil and natural gas to be done in both Roubles and Yuan, bypassing the dollar and cracking the 40 year old petro-dollar system. And on Aug. 31, Dr. Jim Willie reported during an interview with TFMetals Report that this break away from U.S. hegemony over the purchasing of oil is not being limited to just Russia, but that the foundational country of petro-dollar origin, Saudi Arabia, is in talks with the Eurasian energy giant to join them in a partnership that will also disconnect the Arab Kingdom from the dollar, and open energy sales within the OPEC nations to be done in Roubles, Yuan, and perhaps even the Euro.
    -
    While speaking with Craig ‘Turd’ Ferguson of the TFMetal Report, Dr. Jim Willie also pointed out that while Russia was not fully ready to use the Rouble as a primary currency for a large portion of their oil sales, the inclusion of the Yuan by Gazprom will allow multitudes of nations to bypass the dollar, and allow them to purchase oil directly from Russia without having to be enslaved to SWIFT and the financial mechanisms of the reserve currency that the U.S. has used not only for profit, but as a financial weapon.
    -
    Jim Willie: So what happened with Russia? They did in May the holy grail energy deal between themselves and China, and this is a long term, 20-30 year agreement. As well, back in May, April, and March I said watch Russia accept Yuan as a temporary device for energy sales.
    -
    Russia isn’t fully ready to do just Rouble sales. In Europe I think they are going to do Euro and Rouble sales, and with China they are gong to do exclusively Yuan sales.
    -
    So watch the Saudi’s… watch OPEC… watch the deals that Russia starts to integrate with the Person Gulf nations. And kiss goodbye this petro-dollar. – TFMetals Report, Aug. 31
    -
    In validation to Jim Willie’s assertion of a growing partnership being formed between Russia and Saudi Arabia over currencies and oil sales, an interesting event took place a little less than two weeks ago that according to the Guerrilla Economist, had to do with the theft of confidential documents a Saudi Royal was carrying that were tied to negotiations between Russia and the Arab Kingdom over oil sales and the future of the petro-dollar.

The Nail In The Petrodollar Coffin: Gazprom Begins Accepting Payment For Oil In Ruble, Yuan!

  • The Nail In The Petrodollar Coffin: Gazprom Begins Accepting Payment For Oil In Ruble, Yuan! 
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com
    Several months ago, when Russia announced the much anticipated “Holy Grail” energy deal with China, some were disappointed that despite this symbolic agreement meant to break the petrodollar’s stranglehold on the rest of the world, neither Russia nor China announced payment terms to be in anything but dollars. In doing so they admitted that while both nations are eager to move away from a US Dollar reserve currency, neither is yet able to provide an alternative.
    -
    This changed in late June when first Gazprom’s CFO announced the gas giant was ready to settle China contracts in Yuan or Rubles, and at the same time the People’s Bank of China announced that its Assistant Governor Jin Qi and Russian central bank Deputy Chairman Dmitry Skobelkin held a meeting in which they discussed cooperating on project and trade financing using local currencies. The meeting discussed cooperation in bank card, insurance and financial supervision sectors.
    -
    And yet, while both sides declared their operational readiness and eagerness to bypass the dollar entirely, such plans remained purely in the arena of monetary foreplay and the long awaited first shot across the Petrodollar bow was absent.
    -
    Until now.

Bix Weir: Financial Crash Coming, War with Russia-China to Protect US Dollar, Ferguson Police Action!

  • Bix Weir: Financial Crash Coming, War with Russia-China to Protect US Dollar, Ferguson Police Action! 
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com
    Financial writer and analyst Bix Weir says what is going on in Ferguson, Missouri, is more than just a police action gone deadly.  Weir says, “There is definitely discontent out there.  The press covers so many things up, and the government gives us so many lies on statistics, such as unemployment, about GDP, and you name it, they lie about it.  There is so much bubbling up under the surface, and I do think this is the beginning of something much bigger. . . .I see another 2008 coming right around the corner. . . . The majority of Americans are not doing well. . . .The 99% are saying something is wrong here.  Something is off, and as soon as there is another hiccup with the economy, with more bank fraud, you are going to see a big uprising throughout the United States.”
    -
    So, where does Weir think we are in this downward spiral?  Weir contends, “There are a hundred things right now that could tip us over a cliff.  One of the big ones is the U.S. dollar.  You got China, Russia, the BRICS countries are basically abandoning the U.S. dollar.  They are starting to trade oil in other currencies.  Oil is the largest commodity traded on earth in terms of dollar volume.  That’s why the U.S. requires the world to buy and sell oil in U.S. dollars because all those dollars need a place to go.  It’s the petrodollar, as they call it, and people are backing off of that.  That’s why we went after Saddam Hussein.  He was going to sell oil in something other than the U.S. dollar and we invaded.  It’s all about protecting the un- backed fiat currency.  It’s all about rigging the markets and keeping that dollar safe.  As soon as Russia and China start following through with these deals already announced and trading oil for other things, you are going to start seeing the collapse of the dollar which will trigger the derivative bomb.”
    -
    So, do we have war with Russia and China to protect the U.S. dollar?  Weir says, “That’s usually what happens.  As soon as the economy starts to wobble, the bankers see no way out, and they’ll start a war. . . . They are pushing for war because it has always been their get-out-of-jail free card.”

    -
    On the coming financial crash, Weir says, “The crash will start in the derivative market.  The derivative market is a multi-quadrillion dollar market.  It is so big it is beyond comprehension.  The banks that play in derivatives are the large holders of everybody’s money.  The banks that play in this market have been charged with controlling the system for all these years.  When this derivative thing melts down, just like 2008, we were a half an hour from all banks shutting down because they are all inter-related. . . .  It has to do with the snowball effect that they are trying to hold off.  So, yes I do think we are looking at global crash of the monetary system.  What day it will happen, I don’t know, but it already started in 2008. . . . I think they are going to let them crash next time.”

Keiser Report: End of No-Alternative-To-Dollar Era!

  • Published on Aug 16, 2014
    In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert note that as the Empire collapses, they’ve killed all the boogeymen and yet blood for oil has not helped create escape velocity. They also discuss what the return of humpback whales and great white sharks to the waters off Manhattan can tell us about the end of a monoculture in fiat currencies where the dollar has reigned supreme. In the second half, Max interviews Dr. Michael Hudson about the war machine, Judge Griesa’s ruling, super imperialism and the end of a 60 year cycle in which there was no alternative to the dollar.

Putin Says The Petrodollar Must Die, “The Dollar Monopoly In Energy Trade Is Damaging Russia’s Economy”!

Click on image for article!

  • The west will beat the drums of war even louder. The logical move for Putin is to destroy the dollar. The alternative is thermonuclear WW3. The reality is: both will happened ie. war and destruction of dollar. Because of its global monetary hegemony, the western Illuminati is able to finance wars without end, destroy nations financially, buy up the world, manipulate markets/prices, cause famine … etc. The chief expression of this hegemony is the dollar. Trillions of dollars are created out of thin air to finance the wars, the global hegemony of the west. The west will be even more desperate to start their WW3 now. The gloves are off.

  • Putin Says The Petrodollar Must Die, “The Dollar Monopoly In Energy Trade Is Damaging Russia’s Economy”! 
    by Tyler Durden, http://www.zerohedge.com
    On one hand, despite initial weakness following Europe’s triple-dip red alert, futures declined only to surge higher after some headline or another out of Russia was again spun to suggest imminent Ukraine de-escalation (something which Russia whose only interest is to keep crude prices high, has absolutely zero interest in), perpetuating a rumor which was set off by a Russian media outlet tweet last week that has sent S&P futures over 50 higher in less than a week on… nothing.
    -
    On the other, Putin just said the following, which no matter how one spins it, shows precisely how Russia is inclined vis-a-vis future (un-de-counter) escalations.

    * PUTIN SAYS RUSSIA SHOULD AIM TO SELL OIL AND GAS FOR ROUBLES GLOBALLY, AS DOLLAR MONOPOLY IN ENERGY TRADE IS DAMAGING ECONOMY
    -
    Reuters adds:
    President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday Russia should aim to sell its oil and gas for roubles globally because the dollar monopoly in energy trade was damaging Russia’s economy.
    -
    “We should act carefully. At the moment we are trying to agree with some countries to trade in national currencies,” Putin said during a visit to the Crimea region, which Moscow annexed from Ukraine earlier this year.

The US is Clearly Now Pushing Russia Towards War!

Build_up_to_WW3_US_pushing_Russia_into_World_War_3

  • The US is clearly now pushing Russia towards war! 
    by Chris Martenson, http://www.peakprosperity.com/ 
    Putin plays chess, the “markets” play Tic-Tac-Toe       
    The US is clearly now pushing Russia towards war. But if you read the signs correctly, Russia has been preparing for exactly this outcome for many years.
    -
    Out of several reasons that US power brokers specifically — but western power brokers more generally — are deeply unhappy with Russia right now is that Russia is committing a cardinal sin: it is openly, brazenly calling for an end to dollar dominance and has moved aggressively with China to achieve that aim.
    -
    No oil-rich country that has tried to move away from the dollar in the past twenty years has managed to do so without being attacked by the US, suffering a regime change, or being ruined by sanctions. In some cases, all three.
    -
    Not only has Russia managed to secure a string of heavy-duty bilateral trade and currency swap agreements over the past year, but they’ve done so despite ever-increasing threats and responses from the US and its allies. And frighteningly, the equity markets in the West are completely ignoring the nested set of risks that accompany these moves and countermoves by two geopolitical heavyweights, which range from punishing trade wars (already underway), to electronic warfare, to an actual shooting war.

US Using ISIL(ISIS) to Dominate Middle East ! US Government Using ISIL(ISIS) as Pretext to Reinsert its Military in Iraq!

Obama_Liar-in-Chief

  • ‘Obama’s assertion about the purpose of the airstrikes in Iraq are “two, big, bald-faced, fat lies,” Lendman said. “It’s all about the oil. It’s about Iraqi oil. It’s about total dominance. It’s about regional dominance.” ‘ - Quote
    -
  • Published on Aug 10, 2014
    The Obama administration is using the ISIL terrorist group as a pretext to “dominate” the resources of Iraq and other nations in the Middle East, says Stephen Lendman, author and radio show host in Chicago.

    -
    “ISIL is used by America both as an ally in Syria for example, and as an enemy currently in Iraq,” Lendman told Press TV on Saturday.
    -
    US President Barack Obama authorized on Thursday the use of targeted airstrikes on Takfiri ISIL terrorists, also known as ISIS or IS, to protect American personnel inside the country and also help the Iraqi refugees under siege by the terrorist group and stranded on Mount Sinjar in northern Iraq.
    -
    Obama’s assertion about the purpose of the airstrikes in Iraq are “two, big, bald-faced, fat lies,” Lendman said. “It’s all about the oil. It’s about Iraqi oil. It’s about total dominance. It’s about regional dominance.”
    -
    “America simply, in plain English, doesn’t care about humanitarian intervention. If it did, why would it have murdered literally millions of people post 9/11 alone?” he stated.
    -
    Lendman described all of America’s post-9/11 wars as “illegal acts of aggression, from Afghanistan, to Iraq in 2003, to Libya, to Obama’s proxy war in Syria, and now the bombing of ISIL in Iraq again.”
    -
    “Where does this end, how far will it go, will bombing lead to more US troops on the ground, will innocent civilians be killed?” he asked. “Of course they’ll be killed.”
    -
    ISIL, which controls parts of Syria, sent its fighters into neighboring Iraq in June and quickly seized large swaths of territory straddling the border between the two countries.
    -
    The militants have killed a large number of people in territories they have captured across Iraq and Syria and have terrorized entire communities including Shias, Sunnis, Christians, Kurds and others.
  • Published on Aug 11, 2014
    The US government is “responsible for the crisis in Iraq” by arming terrorist groups like ISIL and using those groups as a “pretext” to reinstall US military into Iraq, an American peace and justice activist who is based in Chicago says.

    -
    ISIL, which controls parts of Syria, sent its fighters into neighboring Iraq in June and quickly seized large swaths of territory straddling the border between the two countries. The militants have terrorized entire Iraqi communities, including Shias, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians, Yazidis and others.
    -
    On Friday, the United States conducted its first airstrikes against ISIL positions near Erbil, which is the Kurdish regional capital in Iraq. On Saturday, US President Barack Obama said that airstrikes could go on for months to protect both US personnel and religious minorities who are trapped by the militants on a mountain in northern Iraq.
    -
    “The US government don’t care about the loss of life in the Middle East, they want to use this as a pretext to reinsert the US military into Iraq,” said Joe Iosbaker, a leader of the United National Antiwar Coalition and member of the Committee to Stop FBI Repression.
    -
    “The US has the same objective in Syria that they have in Iraq; they want to put in place governments that will be friendly to the US that will let Exxon, Boeing and Israel dictate the policies of their countries,” Iosbaker told Press TV on Sunday.
    -
    “The US is responsible for the crisis in Iraq,” he noted. “The president doesn’t care about massacres, he’s turned a blind eye of the daily massacres by the Israeli military” in the Gaza Strip.

The U.S. Airstrikes in Northern Iraq Are All About Oil !

  • The U.S. Airstrikes in Northern Iraq Are All About Oil!

    Last night, President Barack Obama announced that he was authorizing American airtstrikes in Iraq. He described his intervention as a “humanitarian effort to help save thousands of Iraqi civilians who are trapped on a mountain” and as an effort “to protect our American personnel.” One word that he didn’t mention is “oil,” but it lies near the center of American motives for intervention.

    The United States is conducting airdrops to aid the Yazidis who have fled the advance of Islamic State militants, but it is conducting airstrikes around Erbil, which is to the east. There are American consular personnel in Erbil, but they could be evacuated if necessary. What Obama left unsaid was that Erbil, a city of 1.5 million, is the capital of the Kurdish regional government and the administrative center of its oil industry, which accounts for about a quarter of Iraq’s oil. The Kurds claim that if they were to become an independent state, they would have the ninth-largest oil reserves in the world. And oil wells are near Erbil.

    If the Islamic State were to take over Erbil, they would endanger Iraq’s oil production and, by extension, global access to oil. Prices would surge at a time when Europe, which buys oil from Iraq, has still not escaped the global recession. Oil prices have already risen in response to the Islamic State’s threat to Erbil, and on Thursday, American oil companies Chevron and Exxon Mobile began evacuating their personnel from Kurdistan. But oil traders are predicting that American intervention could halt the rise. “In essence we find U.S. air strikes more bearish than bullish for oil as the act finally draws a line for IS and reinforces both the stability in south Iraq and in Kurdistan,” Oliver Jakob, a Swiss oil analyst, told Reuters.

    In portraying American intervention in Iraq as a purely humanitarian effort, Obama is following the script he read from in Libya, when he justified American intervention as an effort to prevent a massacre in Benghazi. In a March 28, 2011 address to the nation, Obama painted the American intervention as a response to “brutal repression and a looming humanitarian crisis.” Oil was not mentioned, even though Libya was the world’s sixteenth-largest oil producer in 2009 and a major supplier to Europe. But oil was most likely involved, as became clear when, after preventing a massacre in Benghazi, the United States and its coalition partners stuck around to topple the regime of Muammar Qaddafi. If the Obama administration wanted to prevent the world’s peoples from brutal dictators and repressive regimes or from takeovers by terrorist groups, there are other countries besides Libya and Iraq where it could intervene. What distinguishes these two countries is that they are major oil producers.
