Lavrov Brings in Reality: The Issue is Nuclear War!

World War 3 is near?

  • Lavrov Brings in Reality — The Issue is Nuclear War! 
    by http://larouchepac.com/ 
    In an interview on the Charlie Rose show Sept. 25, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov responded to Rose’s sometimes rude, and insistent attacks on Russian policy on Syria, with a virtual lesson on international law. Then, at the conclusion, he stunned Rose by raising the real issue which looms behind the Imperial regime-change policy being pursued by the British and the Obama administration: the danger of nuclear war.

    The matter came up when Rose asked about the fate of the Arab spring, and whether Russia feared it. Lavrov responded, “Well, I think they’re now in the Arab Autumn.” Where do you think it’s going, asked Rose. “Well, I hope it’s not going to the nuclear winter,” replied Lavrov.

    When Rose responded, Lavrov said, of course, that was only a figure of speech. Rose, clearly shocked, could only respond, “nuclear winter — devastation of a nuclear attack.”

    The message was obviously delivered, as to what is actually going on with Western policy on the Middle East cockpit, as a whole. Just as General Makarov, and Prime Minister Medvedev, have said before him, Lavrov let it be known that the stakes in the current geopolitical game, are the ultimate ones: thermonuclear extinction.

    The first part of the discussion centered primarily around Syria. Lavrov emphasized Russia’s ongoing commitment to the Geneva agreement of June 30, in which the parties were to work out their differences through dialogue, despite the decision by the opposition and the Security Council not to endorse that agreement. What the international community must do, and what Russia supports, is the cessation of the bloodshed. “The number one priority is to save human lives,” but others instead seek regime change.

    As the discussion moved to previous precedents for such action — such as Libya — the insouciant Rose commented that he understood Russia to have been “offended” by the removal of Qaddafi. “Offend” is not the right word, said Lavrov. The right word is “cheat,” and that’s what was done in the Libyan case on the question of the no-fly zone, and on the arms embargo resolution.

    Rose kept pressing on Russian “support” for Assad, which Lavrov denied. He has done too little, too late, Lavrov said. But “we cannot pretend that he is fighting every day unarmed people.” At the same time the armed opposition, which he said began in May of 2011, was being told by others to “keep fighting to the end.” It was Lavrov who mentioned that there are war crimes being committed in Syria, but on both sides. The issue cannot be to decide who should run the government, but to stop the violence, and ensure that all minorities are respected.

    Later on, as Rose kept claiming that Russia’s support is what is keeping Assad in power, Lavrov encapsulated the Russian government’s position, as follows: “We say we’re not going to endorse a Security Council resolution, which is demanding a unilateral capitulation? Yes. We cannot let this resolution pass, because this is absolutely unrealistic and this would only invite outside intervention.” Rose responded, what if the regime is so morally offensive it has to be changed? Lavrov said that he can’t visualize such a situation.

    He elaborated: “There is one very straightforward example. There were several terrorist attacks against the Syrian government. No only against the security headquarters but also against absolutely civilian sites, social infrastructure, health infrastructure.” A couple of times the Security Council condemned the attacks, but “as of a few months ago, our colleagues, including the United States, started refusing to condemn terrorist attacks against the Syrian government… The reason given to us was that, exactly what you said. The regime is absolutely inhuman, and basically anything goes. This is a very scary position to justify terrorist attacks by anything. That was never acceptable to the Untied States… I believe this is a very slippery slope…”

    Lavrov then drew the conclusion, as have Putin and Medvedev before him: This is a question of the United Nations Charter and international law. That also includes the right to veto, which, in fact, the United States had insisted upon at the founding of the United Nations.

    When the discussion turned to Iran, Lavrov reiterated Russia’s position of opposing trying to bludgeon Iran into compliance, as that is counterproductive. On assessment, he said Russia agreed with the U.S. “There is no political decision [to build a bomb-ed.] in Iran. So if people believe the more you provoke Iran, the sooner Iran would take this decision, then I think that this is a very dangerous path.” He also stressed the need to involve Iran on solving the Syria crisis, endorsing the Morsi proposal for a quartet of Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Iran.

Von Greyerz: High Net Worth Investors Pouring Money Into Gold ! The Next Stage in This Crisis is for Currencies to Start Collapsing !

Remember the Golden Rule: He who has the gold makes the rules!

  • Greyerz – High Net Worth Investors Pouring Money Into Gold! 
    by www.kingworldnews.com
    Today Egon von Greyerz spoke with King World News about high net worth investors who are continuing to invest in gold and move their existing gold outside of the banking system.  Greyerz, who is founder and managing partner at Matterhorn Asset Management out of Switzerland, also said the correction in the metals is over.

    Here is what Greyerz had to say:  “Gold is at a weekly highly for 2012.  In my view we have probably seen the correction.  The action in gold and silver is very bullish.  They go up to higher levels, they consolidate at the higher levels, with a very small pullback, and then they move higher.  I see the next big move as being up.”

    “Sure we can always have a correction, but that’s not what I see right now.  The fact that we are at a weekly closing high, if we close at these levels, is also bullish.  So I don’t see the short-term being bearish, Eric.  As a matter of fact, I see major upside moves in gold and silver over the next few weeks. Interestingly, Deutsche Bank recently said their high net worth clients are buying physical gold.  Barclays is now finishing one of the biggest vaults in Europe, which will be used to house physical gold and other metals….

Gold Close To A Major Breakout Which Will Send It To $1,900+!

  • Gold Close To A Major Breakout Which Will Send It To $1,900+! 
    by www.kingworldnews.com
    Today Jeffrey Saut told King World News, “… gold is still in a secular bull market.”  Saut, who is Chief Investment Strategist for $360 billion Raymond James, also said, “Right now gold is testing the upper side of the trading range we’ve been in, and if it breaks out, I think it travels back up to the old highs, a little bit above $1900 an ounce.”

    Here is what Saut had this to say:  “The stock market is following the election year pattern, with a correlation of about 98%.  A typical election year pattern since 1936 called for a peak in the first week of April, a pull back into the first of June, a stair step higher into the first week of September, and then a pull back or correction into about middle to late October.”

    “That should be followed by another rally.  Again, the correlation so far has been at 98%.  We got very overbought on a short-term basis on the QE to eternity announcement.  I don’t think we will see any more of a pull back than maybe the 1,400 to 1,420 area on the S&P. Having said that, you could have the Straits of Hormuz shut down and crude oil could go to $200 a barrel….

AMTV News: The Day ‘King Bibi’ Blinked ! Netanyahu Draws a Cartoon ‘Bomb’ at United Nations!

Global Currency Wars in Full Escalation!

Fiat currencies Titanic is destined for destruction!

  • Global Currency Wars in Full Escalation! 
    by Michael Pento, http://www.ibtimes.com/ 
    The worldwide currency debasement war has now entered a new and more deadly phase. Central banks have escalated the combat plan to bring about the world’s weakest currency for their individual countries. On the heels of the Federal Reserve and European Central Bank’s promises of unlimited counterfeiting forever, the Bank of Japan announced last week that it would expand its purchase of Japanese Government Bonds (and other assets including equities) by 10 trillion Yen. This brings the latest round of BOJ intervention to a total of 80 trillion Yen!

    The sad fact is that the developed world’s central banks are in a desperate battle of one-upmanship. The ill-founded goal is to wreck their currency’s value in relationship to other fiat currencies in order to boost manufacturing and stimulate economic growth. But once again these central bankers have their economics backwards.

    A weak currency that is caused by printing money cannot create a more competitive market for a country’s exports because it increases the cost of goods sold in terms of the domestic currency. Central banks reduce the value of their currency by lowering interest rates and boosting the money supply. This causes aggregate prices to rise, especially on manufactured goods that are a key component of exports. While it is true that foreign currencies will have a more favorable exchange rate, the price of domestic goods and services will have increased in commensurate fashion—thus, offsetting the change in currency valuations. Therefore, there is no improvement in the balance of trade and no improvement in economic growth from competitive currency devaluation.

    For example, the U.S. dollar peaked at 160 on the Dollar Index back in 1985–the USD Index is comprised from a basket of our 6 largest trading partners. This index has lost 50% of its value since that time and stands at just 79 today. According to the economics of today’s central bankers, this should have engendered a U.S. manufacturing renaissance, a huge trade surplus and a vibrant economy.  However, the U.S. economy has been mired in anemic growth for years. The trade deficit has been a chronic problem for decades and was $559 billion last year alone. And manufacturing as a percentage of the economy has dropped from 18% in 1985, to just 12% today.

    You just cannot ignore the fact that governments and central banks are engaged in a global currency war. But we already know who the losers are in this battle;
