Gerald Celente: The 1st Great War of 21st Century Has Begun!

  • Some people think that Gerald Celente is extremely pessimistic. I don’t think so. He is a realist, so am I.
     
    Special Trend Alert 
    The 1st Great War of 21st Century Has Begun!
    KINGSTON, NY — It is a bad science fiction movie written by mad political scientists. Exactly eight years to the day that President George W. Bush took America and his “Coalition of the Willing” to war with Iraq, President Barack Obama has taken America and his “Broad Coalition” to war with Libya.And just as the world was sold a “coalition of the willing” that was predominantly a fleeting alliance of the cajoled and the arm-twisted, the putatively “broad” Obama coalition consists primarily of America’s two cronies-in-war, the UK and France.Only in a mad political science fiction movie could a President engaged in perpetuating two unjust, immoral, interminable and expensive wars begun by his predecessor, take his nation into yet another unjust, immoral, expensive and, in all likelihood, interminable war and expect a happy ending!
     
    Eight years of war in Iraq and 11 in Afghanistan has resolved nothing and served only to inflame anti-American sentiment around the world, drain the US treasury, kill and wound hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of innocent people and destroy the lives, limbs and souls of thousands of American troops.
     
    Batting zero on the battle field, the mad political scientists have stepped up to the plate again. Despite nothing but failure, President Obama has decided, unilaterally, to squander still more American men and money in a war on Libya, promising that this time he won’t strike out.
     
    In what could be a casting call for a mad sci-fi movie starring the Three Stooges, America’s newest Decider-in-Chief fights from the safety of the Oval Office while his equally battle-unscarred and chicken-hearted French and British counterparts, Nicolas “Sarko the American” Sarkozy and David (Eton/Oxford, what else?) Cameron lead the charge from the plush distance of the Palais de l’Élysée and 10 Downing Street.
     
    What’s Next? Having accurately predicted, at their onsets, that the Afghan and Iraq wars would be failures, we now predict that war with Libya will not only be equally unsuccessful, but could have even graver global implications. Will Gaddafi fold without a fight? Or, faced by defeat and certain death, will he hit London, Paris, or New York with bio warfare, a dirty bomb or other tactic?
     
    Absent a worst-case terror attack, even if the “broad coalition” overthrows and kills Qaddaifi, it will not amount to victory any more than executing Saddam Hussein and routing the Taliban has brought victory to Iraq and Afghanistan.
     
    If it feels as though the world is spinning out of control, that’s because it is and at breakneck speed! In just the past few months, revolution has engulfed the entire Middle East and North Africa. In just the past week a gigantic earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown has crippled Japan. And war, (under whatever guise; e.g., “humanitarian crisis” or “answering the call of a threatened people”) has been declared on Libya.
     
    The trend to the “1st Great War of the 21st Century” is accelerating. Events are happening so quickly that it is nearly impossible for us to compile, absorb, analyze and distill the voluminous information in our Trend Alerts before they are eclipsed by the cascade of new events.
     
    To keep you abreast of the breaking news and ahead of the trends, we are upgrading our popular Trends in the News videos to a bi-weekly Tuesday and Thursday regular feature ­ which will be expanded on a need-to-know basis. (www.trendsjournal.com)
     
    We urge subscribers to log in this Tuesday for a Trends in the News special devoted to the opening salvos of the “1st Great War of the 21st Century” … the War that no one else to date is either recognizing or daring to talk about.
     
    It is in our Spring Trends Journal, now scheduled for mid April publication, where we will compile, absorb, analyze and distill the voluminous information. This edition represents a crucial episode in the “History of the Future” ­ a blow-by-blow build-up to war, rather than the mainstream media’s blah-by-blah coverage. Busy cheerleading the home team they are, even at this late stage, incapable of recognizing that the game ends with the 1st Great War of the 21st Century.
     
    What will the War mean to you personally? What can YOU do to prepare yourself for what’s to come? What can be done to individually and collectively halt the march to war ­ or at least divert and mitigate the damage. The Spring Trends Journal will be devoted to exploring these and other issues in depth.

China Imports 245 Tonnes of Silver in February and Qatar SWF “Interested” in Buying Silver!

Going, going ..... gone soon!

  • The Chinese government had made the wise decision to encourage their citizens to accumulate gold and silver a few years back. Inflation is kicking in big time in China and is flaring up in the rest of the world. This has everything to do with the debasement of the USD by the FedRes. The world is moving towards hard assets for protection. There are no better hard assets than gold and silver.
     
  • Eventually, hyperinflation will start in various degrees worldwide. The Illuminist plan calls for the destruction of major currencies: UKP, JPY, Euro and finally the USD. When the USD collapses it will be the end of all fiat currencies. I do not expect minor fiat currencies to survive, even strong currencies like AUD and SGD.
     
  • This past week, the overnight strengthening of the Yen against the USD by 5% demonstrates how fragile the current monetary system is. In the end, G7 nations decided to intervene and weaken the Yen back to above the 80 level (USD-JPY). This shows that when the USD collapses, other currencies will follow it down the toilet bowl via competitive devaluations. The alternative is economic stagnation and depression. What Japan did to weaken their currency will be repeated by all.
      
    China Imports 245 Tonnes of Silver in February and Qatar SWF “Interested” in Buying Silver
    news.goldseek.com

    Central banks and sovereign wealth funds with massive exposure to the dollar, such as the Russians and Chinese, are not going to shout from the roof tops their intentions to diversify into gold and silver bullion as this would lead to a surge in bullion prices and an even greater depreciation of their dollar holdings.
     
    China imported 245.6 metric tons of silver in February. The figure is close to the 260.6 metric tons imported in February 2010 and suggests that the Chinese are more than willing to buy silver at over $30 per ounce. It also suggests that the record Chinese imports of 3,475,394 kilos seen in 2010 (a massive four fold increase from 2009) may be again attained in 2011.
     
    This demand is likely from the private sector rather than official but it is quite possible that there has been official buying in recent months. This may have come from the Chinese State Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE) which manages nearly $3 trillion of currency reserves. The Chinese has experienced the collapse of a paper currency and hyperinflation as recently as 1949 and therefore appreciate the value of gold (and silver) as currencies which cannot be debased. 
      ……
    Gold was not the only precious metal being bought with the FT reporting that the sovereign wealth fund of Qatar, the Qatar Investment Authority is reportedly interested in acquiring both and gold and silver.
     
    The QIA has assets estimated to exceed $65 billion and this one sovereign wealth fund alone could easily corner the very small physical silver market which is worth some $36 billion at today’s prices (1 billion ounces of above ground, investment grade refined silver bullion multiply by $36 per ounce).

Iran Bought Gold To Cut Dollar Exposure!

He who has the gold makes the rules!

  • What Iran is doing is also done by many countries secretly. Central banks have started quietly accumulating gold because they know the USD is toast. Despite the earthquakes, tsunami, nuclear meltdown in Japan and the uprisings and wars in MENA, the USD has failed to rally. In the past, the world will rally to the safety of the USD but not any more. The USDX (Dollar Index) is flirting with dangerously low level of support. It indicates weakness and more weakness everyday.
     
    Iran bought gold to cut dollar exposure
    The Financial Times
    Iran has bought large amounts of gold in the international market, according to a senior Bank of England official, in a sign of how growing political pressure has driven Tehran to reduce its exposure to the US dollar.
     
    Andrew Bailey, head of banking at the Bank of England, told an American official that the central bank had observed “significant moves by Iran to purchase gold”, according to a US diplomatic cable obtained by WikiLeaks and seen by the Financial Times. Mr Bailey said the gold buying “was an attempt by Iran to protect its reserves from risk of seizure”.

US Army ‘Kill Team’ in Afghanistan Posed for Photos of Murdered Civilians!

American soldiers posing with murdered Afghans. Der Spiegel 21 March 2011

  • Everyday Afghanistan civilians are murdered by American forces. Afghanistan never attacked America. Afghanistan was never involved in 9/11 (it was an inside job). The war in Afghanistan is an illegal, immoral and genocidal war of aggression. The real reason is for the oil and gas pipeline infrastructure across Afghanistan and the opium trade. Americans must wake up! Do not participate in any of these Illuminist generated wars!
     
    US Army ‘kill team’ in Afghanistan posed for photos of murdered civilians
    by Jon Boone, The Guardian UK
    Commanders brace for backlash of anti-US sentiment that could be more damaging than after the Abu Ghraib scandal
     
    Commanders in
    Afghanistan are bracing themselves for possible riots and public fury triggered by the publication of “trophy” photographs of US soldiers posing with the dead bodies of defenceless Afghan civilians they killed. Senior officials at Nato‘s International Security Assistance Force in Kabul have compared the pictures published by the German news weekly Der Spiegel to the images of US soldiers abusing prisoners in Abu Ghraib in Iraq which sparked waves of anti-US protests around the world.
     
    They fear that the pictures could be even more damaging as they show the aftermath of the deliberate murders of Afghan civilians by a rogue US Stryker tank unit that operated in the southern province of Kandahar last year. Some of the activities of the self-styled “kill team” are already public, with 12 men currently on trial in Seattle for their role in the killing of three civilians.
     
    Five of the soldiers are on trial for pre-meditated murder, after they staged killings to make it look like they were defending themselves from Taliban attacks. Other charges include the mutilation of corpses, the possession of images of human casualties and drug abuse. All of the soldiers have denied the charges. They face the death penalty or life in prison if convicted.
     
    The case has already created shock around the world, particularly with the revelations that the men cut “trophies” from the bodies of the people they killed. An investigation by Der Spiegel has unearthed approximately 4,000 photos and videos taken by the men.
     
    The magazine, which is planning to publish only three images, said that in addition to the crimes the men were on trial for there are “also entire collections of pictures of other victims that some of the defendants were keeping”.
     
    The US military has strived to keep the pictures out of the public domain fearing it could inflame feelings at a time when anti-Americanism in Afghanistan is already running high. In a statement, the army said it apologised for the distress caused by photographs “depicting actions repugnant to us as human beings and contrary to the standards and values of the United States“.
     
    The lengthy Spiegel article that accompanies the photographs contains new details about the sadistic behaviour of the men. In one incident in May last year, the article says, during a patrol, the team apprehended a mullah who was standing by the road and took him into a ditch where they made him kneel down.
     
    The group’s leader, Staff Sergeant Calvin Gibbs, then allegedly threw a grenade at the man while an order was given for him to be shot. Afterwards, Gibbs is described cutting off one of the man’s little fingers and removing a tooth.
     
    The patrol team later claimed to their superiors that the mullah had tried to threaten them with a grenade and that they had no choice but to shoot. On Sunday night many organisations employing foreign staff, including the United Nations, ordered their staff into a “lockdown”, banning all movements around Kabul and requiring people to remain in their compounds.
     
    In addition to the threat from the publication of the photographs, security has been heightened amid fears the Taliban may try to attack Persian new year celebrations. There could also be attacks because Hamid Karzai, the Afghan president, is due to make a speech declaring which areas of the country should be transferred from international to Afghan control in the coming months.

Russia Says Western Strikes Kill Libyan Civilians!

  • The Illuminist Anglo-American governments are once again lying about their intention. No fly zone? It is quite clear it is a free fly zone for US, British and French forces to bomb Libya. It is the same old BS: let’s start another war for the sake of peace! The snakes objective is not peace but wars, more wars and continuous wars. The Illuminist MIC makes money via more wars.
     
  • The sheeple are being financially raped and used as cannon fodder for wars. Unfortunately, most sheeple are asleep and will rally to the flag to ‘defend’ their country. The reality is: this is not self defence but wars of aggression, military conquests for economic and financial gain!
     
    Russia says Western strikes kill Libyan civilians
    MOSCOW, March 20 (Reuters) – Russia called on Britain, France and the United States on Sunday to stop air strikes against what it said were non-military targets in Libya, saying the attacks had caused civilian casualties.
     
    “In that respect we call on countries involved to stop the non-selective use of force,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said in a statement.
     
    Lukashevich said 48 civilians were reported to have been killed and 150 wounded in the air strikes, figures that matched those given early on Sunday by Libyan state TV. He said strikes had destroyed a medical facility, roads and bridges.
     
    The Western countries say they hit only military targets, including air defences and tanks that were threatening the eastern city of Benghazi. “We believe a mandate given by the U.N. Security Council resolution — a controversial move in itself — should not be used to achieve goals outside its provisions which only see measures necessary to protect civilian population,” Lukashevich said. Russia abstained during a U.N. Security Council vote which authorised a no-fly zone over Libya and “all necessary measures” to protect civilians against leader Muammar Gaddafi’s forces. (Writing by Gleb Bryanski)

          A fourth kingdom on earth,
          Which shall be different from all other kingdoms,
          And shall devour the whole earth,
          Trample it and break it in pieces.
