The banks will save us
The above is an image from the Foreign Policy website article; Why Central Banks Need to Step Up on Global Warming. The image above shows New York Central Bank, Wall Street and Goldman Sachs. The article liberally quotes Mark Carney who is still governor of the BOE but used to work for Goldman. Minimal research on the website reveals the following (Wikipedia, yea I know....but...); "Foreign Policy is an American news publication, founded in 1970 and focused on global affairs, current events, and domestic and international policy...... It produces content daily on its website..... the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace acquired full ownership of Foreign Policy...... Foreign Policy endorsed Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in the run-up to the 2016 US presidential election." So, you know where they are coming from. Also note that they are supported by a "Foundation".....remember what we said about foundations?
Meet the Messiah, he is not a very naughty boy, he is a banker
Apparently the banks are going to save the planet. That is what they want you to believe. It begs the question of how stupid are people? Biblaridion website is politically neutral. Trump and the Anglo-Zionists are not supported and neither are the globo-bolsheviks supported. We have no axe to grind for either the left or the right. A pox on both their houses. We aim to tell the truth and damn the consequences. We are all being played. There are no good guys. It is called the Hegelian dialectic = action, reaction solution.....and I can tell you this...whoever wins you will not like the solution.
Never let a good crisis go to waste
The climate is changing. It will get worse and disasters will become more frequent and be bigger. They know this. They also know why it is happening but they will not tell you the truth. The truth is that it is natural and they cannot stop it but they can use it. They can use it to reduce the population and take complete control. When we are at our most vulnerable the Central Banks will step in and shut down fossil fuels. Imagine facing dramatic climate change and natural disasters without recourse to fuel or power?
They are ramping up the rhetoric in Australia. The headline in the Australian Newspaper is that Climate Change could trigger the next financial crisis (LOL). I ask myself if people are so crazy or stupid to believe this? The world economy is already in crisis and it has nothing to do with climate and everything to do with neoclassical economics. The Ponzi scheme of factional reserve banking and huge, huge, huge debt and derivatives. But they want you to believe it is going to fail.....because.....because....the sun is shinning...or worse still....it is YOUR FAULT because you breathe out CO2 and fart methane pollutants (phew). They already have the fall guy lined up. The supposed reason why the global economy has all failed is because the dirty Anglo-Zionists will not back down from using fossil fuels (sic). Wake up. This is not about climate but about politics and bringing in the New World Order.
Shut it down....divest
This is what the Geelong Advertiser has to say "In an expansive new report, the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) told its members they had to start including climate change in their thinking about the stability of the economy. The BIS, the Switzerland-based international body comprised of more than 50 of the world’s most influential central banks, including Australia’s Reserve Bank (RBA), warned the RBA could be forced into rescuing the economy andthe environment. The RBA may have to buy up coal mines and fossil fuel power stations to reduce the economic impact".
Whoopie! The useless RBA, who have failed the Australian economy at every turn and allowed the biggest property bubble in history to inflate, will save us all by shutting everything down. The private banks who launder drug and child porn money will also help save us. What could possibly go wrong?
CRAZY! 😱— John Adams (@adamseconomics) January 20, 2020
The establishment wants the RBA to engage in EXTREME ECONOMIC INSANITY by buying coal mines & fossil fuel power stations!
Hyperinflating the Australian dollar in order to facilitate nationalisation of private sector assets will be a DISASTER!https://t.co/WdEwM6FDUE
Not only that, but they want to ban cash in Australia and they want to put the unemployed (soon all of us will be "dole bludgers") on "cashless welfare cards" which is the first step towards "Universal Basic Income". They want to control your money so that they can control you. I was told that that "conservatives" or "liberals" loved freedom and independence and entrepreneurship. Can someone please explain to me how giving everyone the same income and making them dependent on the state is not communism? I don't understand? Who is pulling your strings? I wonder. Don't you suffer from cognitive dissonance simultaneously holding two diametrically opposed ideologies in your head?
The cashless welfare card is run by Indue, which is part of the RBA's New Payments Platform for a cashless economy coordinated by KPMG, who devised Morrison's current #cashban to force all Aussies to use electronic systems to "monitor and measure" (their words) our activities. https://t.co/N1uf1Nzs6D— Robert Barwick (@RobbieBarwick) January 20, 2020
The weather as political weapon ="divestment"
Who would have thought that "climate" would become a political weapon? The climate has been weaponized. This is what Wikipedia says (yeah...I know); "In 2013 a study by HSBC found that between 40% and 60% of the market value of BP, Royal Dutch Shell and other European fossil fuel companies could be wiped out because of stranded assets caused by carbon emission regulation. Bank of England governor Mark Carney, speaking at the 2015 World Bank seminar, has stated: "The vast majority of reserves are unburnable" if global temperature rises are to be limited to below 2 °C. In 2019, Carney suggested that banks should be forced to disclose their climate-linked risks within the next two years, and said that more information would prompt investors to penalise and reward firms accordingly. He warned that companies and industries that are not moving towards zero-carbon emissions could be punished by investors and go bankrupt.A report by the Carbon Tracker Initiative found that between 2010 and 2015 the US coal sector had lost 76% of its value including the closure of 200 mines".
Do you think it will stop at coal? Really? How gullible are you? Ask yourself this....if we go completely carbon neutral (or negative as some want) what are the political consequences? Without the backing of fossil fuels the Petrodollar would collapse. Without the Petrodollar there is no Anglo-Zionist empire. What you are seeing is a death struggle between "capitalism" (although it is not really capitalism) and "communism" (although it is not really communism). The globalists (internationalists) used greed as a weapon by encouraging the Anglo-Zionists to place all their manufacturing in China (result= loss of good jobs) then they replaced lost productivity and GDP with debt (result=debt slaves) they suppressed and stagnated wages with open border immigration (result=societal tensions) and introduced division through cultural Marxism (result =fractured societies) now they want to take away your energy and your money. Of course, you will get "renewable energy" and "carbon credits" (at least some of us will) and a "basic income" . They have been working towards this outcome for at least 150 years through their "foundations" and "NGO's" and have infiltrated and undermined the education system completely. In the UK they have virtually captured the civil service. They have been very clever and patient and waited until the Anglo-Zionists have hoist themselves on their own petard (greed). Trump is desperately trying to undo some of the damage (his scrabble to get jobs back from China and his tariffs) but is making the situation worse. So, you have a choice between warmongering thugs and crony-capitalist technocrats (Anglo-Zionists) or the internationalists (globalist) Malthusian eugenicists control freak nutters (Globo-Bolsheviks) technocrats. You have Hobson's choice. Your free choice is to become a perpetual slave no matter who is in charge. A plutocracy of thugs and gangsters rule.
Anecdotal evidence (you must establish this through your own research) shows that a number of Rothschild organizations and family members are involved in divestment strategy. I have discovered a number of "Rothschild" members and I assume that they are related (it is an unusual name). For example Matthew Rothschild edits a Progressive magazine, Herb Rothschild blogs contra fossil fuels, Rachel Emma Rothschild wrote a book about acid rain etc. And then there is the undeniable connection with Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild who added at a conference that “When we talk with companies, we have to be very clear with them that we care about issues like their carbon footprint, ” according to P&I. And what of Edmond de Rothschild and his connection with the Sustainable Finance and Responsible Investment Chair or the fact that investment banks Rothschild and Perella Weinberg were selected by Italy's Edison for divesting of its oil and gas unit or that Rothschild & Co. walked away from Adani mine investment in Australia. There is too much going on for it to be coincidence (sic)...it looks like the Rothschild family is squarely behind disinvestment. Why would bankers want to "disinvest" from industries that made them billions (trillions). Because the love us. Because they love the environment. Because they want you to thrive and prosper.
Hegelian Dialectic and/or controlled opposition?
There are some who believe that Trump is controlled opposition. Some of his actions are so stupid that they are counterproductive. They are actually speeding up the demise of Empire. I am not so sure. I think that we are seeing acts of desperation. I have placed a tweet below to demonstrate the absolute hypocrisy of the debate. On this occasion Donald Trump junior is entirely Correct:
India’s electric grid is 79.8% fueled by “fossil energy” so really they’re coal powered. https://t.co/01ACIEESrz— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) January 20, 2020
Hey, Jeff Bezos! You are a globalist, monopolist, corporatist who works for the CIA and spouts propaganda and the Donalds are also plutocrats who push an Anglo-Zionist agenda. Hmmm.....whose side am I on? Such a difficult choice. (LOL)
Conclusion: The Globo-Bolshevik strategy
1. Destroy the Anglo-Zionists by destroying the fossil fuel industry
2. Destroy agriculture (meat etc)
3. Drive people into Mega cities (urban populations are easier to control)
4. Blame climate change for the coming financial crisis
5. Use the financial crisis to depopulate
6. Issue a new centrally controlled digital currency
I have probably forgotten some points but you get the picture. I urge you to take pity on the "left". Many of them are just useful idiots. They are frightened and anxious and are being used. However, some know full well what they are doing. Still think it is all a conspiracy? Go back to sleep but don't blame me when you wake up in a technocratic paradise.
2 for 1 deal
Trump was recorded at a Republican fundraiser held at his Florida estate and the tape was obtained by CNN. Obviously, CNN hate Trump. I have taken the liberty to put the recording against my own background. Trump boasted about a "2 for 1" deal (they killed 2 people).
"How much of this shit do we have to listen to?"
The above is a quote from Trump talking about Soleimani's anti-American invective. We might say the same "how much shit do we have to listen to?" (but we do not order drone attacks for Trump's verbal diarrhea). Sounds like Trump had "convincing" arguments for the kill order. Trump claimed erroneously that Soleimani was meeting "the head of Hezbollah" (the Iran-backed Lebanese militant group is separate from group led by Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis). Sounds to me like the "stable genius" blew a fuse.
My advice to Trump - you are going to have to listen to a lot more of this shit. The Persians will not forget or forgive. Moreover, you have revealed your true self to the world. Your mask has slipped. The man of sin is being revealed. Below is my video with the CNN soundtrack.
Damascus road conversion?
Putin jokes with Assad about Trump receiving a Damascus road conversion like the apostle Paul. A bit late for that I am afraid because he has already had a vision of the Lubavitcher Rebbe who told him what great things he must suffer for my names sake. And the Rebbe said; Go thy way: for Trump is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear the name of the Anglo-Zionists before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel and to make Israel Great again.
Putin jokes Assad should invite Trump to visit Damascus.
The leaders were referring to the Straight Street, which leads to Mariamite Cathedral of Damascus, & to Apostle Paul whose life was transformed after a vision he had as he walked on that road. pic.twitter.com/WfTy90RO9Q

A report from inside the Matrix
Sitting inside the Matrix and drawing the threads together from the various stories and tweets to give us an overview.
The easiest way to do this is to first catalogue the narrative that they want us to believe and then push-back. What is my motivation? After 9/11 I do not believe anything they tell me. In their philosophy the end justifies the means. They lock people up (Assange) and murder people (Epstein). Then they call you a conspiracy theorists for doubting them. They may even call you unpatriotic or a terror supporter. They are very good at projecting. So, this is not about being "contrary" it is not about being anti-Anglo-Zionist or pro-Iranian. At this point in time if they told me it was dark outside I would go outside and physically check. My attitude is now beyond skeptical. They no longer get the benefit of the doubt.
What they want you to believe
This is what they want you to believe:
1. Soleimani was a bloodthirsty terrorist
2. Soleimani was planning further attacks on the US
3. The Iranians are incompetent and missed killing anyone on US bases with their rockets
4. They are so stupid that all their rockets did was kill their own citizens in a Ukrainian aircraft
5. Iranians are rioting because they hate their lying incompetent government
Debunking the Narrative
The first three points of this narrative are easily debunked in the following video:
The last three points are more difficult to debunk but a certain amount of clarity is starting to emerge. I have said all along that I do not believe in coincidences. The fact that the Ukraine is involved and that a similar (antiquated) missile system was used, set alarm bells ringing. Then I came across this perceptive comment reproduced in full (from the comments section on the MOA also linked above):
I guess I get to re-post what I wrote here three days ago, as it may be closest to the truth.
WHO PRESSED THE BUTTON?Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. The third time it’s enemy action.
– Auric Goldfinger
I find the evidence on social media quite convincing. It seems that two Tor M1 missiles were fired at the Ukrainian plane.
People have asked why the cameraman was filming the empty sky at 6 AM? Maybe he saw the first missile hit and started filming the second missile 30 seconds later. The cameraman may be a night guard. There is some kind of guard house at the street corner from where the video is filmed. It is also seen on the video.
The question to ask is "who pressed the button?" Unless it was pure incompetence there are two other options.
- US electronic warfare created fake radar targets for Iranians to shoot at.
- Americans had hacked into the Tor system. Maybe they took over the control link between the Tor TLAR and the command unit and were able to issue false fire commands. Or maybe they inserted some Stuxnet type malware into the system. If so, this implant may have been waiting for years to be activated.
Americans have lately been bragging about the malware that they have implanted in Russian strategic systems and the cyber attacks they are planning against Russia. There is every reason to believe they are engaged in a similar war against Iran.
Does Ukraine have Tor M1 systems? I am sure they gave all the necessary information to Americans.
Why did Iran back down?
Iran does not want war with the USA. When it retaliated against the USA it forewarned Iraq so that no human casualties ensued. Iran only targeted infrastructure (US bases). When they shot down a US drone they limited their action to military infra structure (also no casualties). They are fully aware that the USA (or Israel) is capable of initiating a full scale nuclear assault against them. They do not want war but they had to respond otherwise their government would have looked weak and collapsed. So, they fired missiles at empty bases. Then they went into high alert expecting a retaliation.
What happened next?
If the above speculation is true (manipulating the Tor missile system) then why would Iran accept responsibility? Well, at first they demanded an investigation and attempted to be transparent hoping that the truth would be revealed. Then Iran backed-down and took full responsibility. Why? Probably because they faced an overwhelming nuclear threat. I believe the threat was so pressing that they were forced to tow the line. The fact is that Iran did shoot the aircraft down.....but I believe they had outside help (the US/Israel interfered with their systems). If the true extent of Anglo-Zionist perfidy and lying is revealed then the Empire would collapse. The charade only works as long as Joe public believes the narrative. Joe public still believes 9/11 and the Epstein suicide. They think they can get away with anything now. They have perfected the art. What you must remember is that war is not just fought on the battlefield but also for your heart and mind. They need you to believe that they are the good guys fighting evil. What do you expect? You think that they will admit that they are a bunch of blood thirsty, power hungry, greedy megalomaniacs who want to control the world? Not likely. Where does this leave Iran? They are not a perfect country either but they are seeking to protect themselves. That is their right.
While millions of Iranians turned out for the funeral of Solemani, Iran's call to de-escalate comes as waves of anti-government protesters have taken to the streets to demand that Iran's leaders, including Ayatollah Khamenei, stepdown over their initially concealing the truth about the airline downing. (At least that is what this article is saying.).
How can you believe any of this when the protests start at "Universities" (don't they always?) and the British Ambassador is taking pictures (for his scrapbook?). Looks like another "color-revolution". I do not believe for one moment that this is spontaneous. See below for tweets:
To the leaders of Iran - DO NOT KILL YOUR PROTESTERS. Thousands have already been killed or imprisoned by you, and the World is watching. More importantly, the USA is watching. Turn your internet back on and let reporters roam free! Stop the killing of your great Iranian people!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 12, 2020
Remain skeptical don't believe anything they say. Two buildings were impacted yet three fell down. They can manipulate almost anything. Who can make war against the beast?
Moon of Alabama Article
Note none of the articles on the missile launch agree on casualties - there seems to be deliberate disinformation going on. The US claims no one was killed. Iran claims eighty? If people were injured or killed the US will be expected to respond.

Reports are coming in of an airplane crash. Apparently the airplane had just taken off from Tehran (Iranian) airport. It was a Ukrainian airplane.
— Strategic Sentinel (@StratSentinel) January 8,
At this moment we do not know if it was mechanical failure, a bomb or a rocket. The footage (see above) is not very good but shows it coming down in one piece? (fireball which rules out a bomb?).
The link between Ukraine and Iran cannot be a coincidence. Ukraine is front and center of the impeachment scandal and Ukraine is known for its corruption (particularly regarding energy e.g., gas). The children of the Democrats (including Kerry's son) and George Soros himself were all heavily involved in the Ukraine. John Kerry negotiated the nuclear deal with Ukraine (the one Trump walked away from). So, straight away we have a connection between Ukraine and Iran. This article was republished (?) on the 3rd of January (the day that Soleimani was assassinated) but it was originally written on 15 July 2015.
I do not know what happened but I doubt very much that it was an accident (sic). The aircraft was probably not shot down by Iran either. This has the fingerprints of the Deep State all over it. The question we need to ask is: Who was on that aircraft? Is the intelligence community tying up loose ends to cover up their energy schemes? Ukraine and Iran were right at the heart of it (was Soleimani involved?). Someone was buying Iranian oil and gas and someone was circumventing sanctions. The link between Ukraine, Iran and the Democrats is suspicious. I don't believe in coincidences.

Iran Changes Plane Crash Story As Ukrainian Theories Include Possible Missile Strike
Now Pay up
How would you feel if someone burglarized and destroyed your home. Then they raped your wife and kids and killed some family members? (silly question) How would you feel if that someone asked you to pay up in order for them to leave? (LOL). Apparently Trump asked Iraq for payments. We have a word for that. It is called gangsterism. Perhaps Trump is following the lead of Israel: Israel’s Operation Shekhinah: Why America Fought Iraq
Shekhina, also spelled Shekhinah, Shechina, or Schechina, (Hebrew: “Dwelling,” or “Presence”), in Jewish theology, the presence of God in the world. ... In the Targums it is used as a substitute for “God” in passages where the anthropomorphism of the original Hebrew seemed likely to mislead.
So, let me get this straight....divine glory is mediated to the world through the Zionist state? This is why the Zionists need to steal the oil. You see, it is for the Muslims own good. The Jews will rule over them and distribute the spoil (oil) equitably (LOL). Now we know where Trump gets his gangsterism from (he is after all "the chosen one").
No one will steal divine glory........not even the Jews. They have turned their Zionist ideology into a false god (idol). You do not get to mediate the presence of God to the world because that has already been done through Jesus Christ (whom you rejected and crucified). Without the messiah you are bankrupt. God hates your behavior. You are idol worshipers and God will share neither his presence, nor his glory with you until you repent.
"I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory
will I not give to another, neither my praise to
graven images" (Isa 42:8).
P.S. If Trump (the Anglo-Zionists) lose you get the Globo-Bolsheviks (Soros et al). It is win, win for the Jews. (always bet on the Jew). Meet the new boss same as the old boss. Their Hegelian dialectic is coming to fruition. More than 150 years of working towards global hegemony and whatever happens they win (at least that is what they think). Well, I have got news for you. I have also placed my bets on the Jew:
"Thus says the LORD of hosts: In those days ten men
from the nations of every tongue shall take hold of
the robe of a Jew, saying, ‘Let us go with you,
for we have heard that God is with you.’"
Sorry,Georgie and Trumpie. I have already placed my bets on a Jew called Jesus Christ. Otherwise known as Immanuel (God with us). I have decided not to join you and the Christian-Zionists on your journey into hell.
For those of you biblically inclined note that there are ten men in the quote obviously they come from ten nations. Ten nations (tribes) lived in this region during the time of Abraham. In Genesis 15:18 Abraham was promised this territory (from the Nile to the Euphrates). Abraham was not promised the Yinon plan. After making a temporary agreement with the harlot these ten nations will eventually turn against the Zionists (Rev 17:16). Jesus is the descendant of Abraham and so is everyone (Jew or Gentile) who shares the messianic faith of Abraham. The nations who recognize the legitimacy of the messiah will have a glorious future. They will not be ruled over by the Jews as slaves, nor will their wealth be plundered, they will be treated as equals:
"The LORD Almighty will bless them, saying,
"Blessed be Egypt my people,
Assyria my handiwork,
and Israel my inheritance." (Isa 19:25)

Blowback From The Soleimani Assassination Increases As Iraq Reveals How Trump Tried To Steal Its Oil
The blowback from Trump's assassination of Major General Qassem Soleimani and PMU leader Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis is increasing. A scandal is developing as one consequence of Trump's evil deed after Iraq's Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi revealed the gangster methods U.S. President Trump used in his attempts to steal Iraq's oil. Below we follow today's development.
The mourning for the assassinated Iranian Major General Qassem Soleimani unfortunately caused even more suffering:
A stampede broke out Tuesday at a funeral for a top Iranian general killed in a U.S. airstrike, and at least 56 people were killed and more than 200 were injured as thousands thronged the procession, Iranian news reports said.
The stampede took place in Kerman, the hometown of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleimani, as the procession began, said the semi-official Fars and ISNA news agencies, citing Pirhossein Koulivand, head of Iran’s emergency medical services.
Helicopter video had earlier shown that the street of Kerman were densely crowded with mourners. The actual funeral has now been postponed.
A U.S. paid anti-Iranian propagandist has turned out to claim that Qassem Soleimani was not really popular in Iran. It is easy to debunk such nonsense by pointing to the University of Maryland which does regular polls in Iran. In October 2019 it found:
General Soleimani remains the most popular Iranian public figure among those tested, with eight in ten viewing him favorably. Second is Foreign Minister Zarif, viewed favorably by two thirds. ...
Also this from Professor Abukhalil:
This is the most stunning aspect of the rise of Iranian nationalism due to Trump’s decision to kill Suleimani. This would have been most unimaginable for many decades. The law of unintended consequences. https://t.co/nuxrZ1WzMi— asad abukhalil أسعد أبو خليل (@asadabukhalil) January 6, 2020
In addition to his well known military/strategic prowess & achievements, it was also scenes such as this from 2017 - when Soleimani consoled the daughter of a slain comrade at his funeral - that made him so widely respected and revered in Iran. pic.twitter.com/Pnkk8iHiUB— Louis Allday (@Louis_Allday) January 5, 2020
This video from 2017 shows Soleimani consoling the daughter of a slain comrade at his funeral. Such scenes explain why Soleimani was so beloved.
The U.S. has denied Iran's Foreign Minister Jahvad Zarif a visa for a long planned visit to the UN in New York. Zarif responded by saying that he can talk to the U.S. people from Tehran. Today he proved that by giving a CNN interview:
Iran's Foreign Minister Javad Zarif called US President Donald Trump's decision to order the drone strike that killed the country's top military commander an act of "state terrorism" in an interview with CNN Tuesday.
"This is an act of aggression against Iran and amounts to an armed attack against Iran, and we will respond. But we will respond proportionally not disproportionally," he said. "We will respond lawfully, we are not lawless people like President Trump."
The interview came as Iran's parliament voted unanimously for a motion declaring all US forces as "terrorists" on Tuesday, according to Iran's state-news agency IRNA. The vote took place during the country's parliamentary session Tuesday, IRNA reported. After the plan was approved, delegates chanted, "Death to America."
More death will come:
According to a report on Tuesday by the semi-official Tasnim news agency, Iran has worked up 13 sets of plans for revenge for Soleimani’s killing. The report quoted Ali Shamkhani, the secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, as saying that even the weakest among them would be a “historic nightmare” for the U.S. He declined to elaborate,
“If the U.S. troops do not leave our region voluntarily and upright, we will do something to carry their bodies horizontally out,” Shamkhani said.
The Quds force, the external action arm of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corp, received an additional budget of 200 million Euros. It will put that money to good use.
There are some 60 to 70.000 U.S. soldiers designated foreign terrorists on some 19 bases near Iran and on ships in nearby waters. That are a quite a number of fish in just a few barrels.
Their commander in chief should ask himself if it is wise to keep them there.
The leader of a number of Iraqi Popular Militia Forces will meet in the next 48 hours to plan for the eviction of U.S. forces from Iraq should they not leave voluntarily. For security reasons the meeting was moved from Baghdad to Tehran.
"Soleimani's blood .. will turn into intercontinental missiles .. to destroy US warships and end US regional presence"
U.S. war ships will certainly have to avoid Yemen's coast.
The removal of U.S. troops from the region was also the theme of Sunday's speech by Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah in Lebanon. It seems clear that the Resistance Axis will work on the project in a coordinated manner.
Trump said he would ask Iraq to pay for the bases the U.S. has built should the U.S. troops be kicked out of Iraq. The U.S. already has binding legal agreements with Iraq which stipulate that the bases, and all fixed installations the U.S. has built there, are the property of Iraq.
Trump had already asked Iraqi Prime Ministers -twice- if the U.S. could get Iraq's oil as reward for invading and destroying their country. The requests were rejected. Now we learn that Trump also uses gangster methods (ar) to get the oil of Iraq. The talk by the Iraqi Prime Minister Abdul Mahdi happened during the recent parliament session in Iraq (machine translation):
Al-Halbousi, Speaker of the Iraqi Council of Representatives, blocked the speech of Mr. Abdul Mahdi in the scheduled session to discuss the decision to remove American forces from Iraq.
At the beginning of the session, Al-Halbousi left the presidential seat and sat next to Mr. Abdul-Mahdi, after his request to cut off the live broadcast of the session, a public conversation took place between the two parties. The voice of Adel Abdul Mahdi was raised.
Mr. Abdul Mahdi spoke with an angry tone, saying:
"The Americans are the ones who destroyed the country and wreaked havoc on it. They are those who refuse to complete building the electrical system and infrastructure projects. They have bargained for the reconstruction of Iraq in exchange for giving up 50% of Iraqi oil imports, so I refused and decided to go to China and concluded an important and strategic agreement with it, and today Trump is trying to cancel this important agreement."
The American President's threatened the Iraqi Prime Minister to liquidate him directly with the Minister of Defense. The Marines are the third party that sniped the demonstrators and the security men:
Abdul Mahdi continued:
"After my return from China, Trump called me and asked me to cancel the agreement, so I also refused, and he threatened me with massive demonstrations that would topple me. Indeed, the demonstrations started and then Trump called, threatening to escalate in the event of non-cooperation and responding to his wishes, so that the third party (Marines snipers) would target the demonstrators and security forces and kill them from the highest structures and the US embassy in an attempt to pressure me and submit to his wishes and cancel the China agreement, so I did not respond and submitted my resignation and the Americans still insist to this day on canceling the China agreement and when the defense minister said that who kills the demonstrators is a third party, Trump called me immediately and physically threatened me and defense minister in the event of talk about the third party."
The reliable Based Cat in Iraq seems to confirm the timeline:
Yes a 50-person delegation visited China in 2019 and then the protests started on October 1st until the Arbaeen dates, then picked up again on Oct 25th. I'm skeptical about the 3rd party but the timing itself was interesting. The flames were fanned by Gulf media and Al-Hurra. https://t.co/1dSiuH8ez5— TØM CΛT (@TomtheBasedCat) January 7, 2020
Al-Hurra is a U.S. government financed Arab language TV outlet.
While this talk has not yet been confirmed it does sounds highly plausible.
Gulf Arab states, potential targets for retaliation after the U.S. assassinated Iran’s top general, are working on multiple tracks to try to keep tensions between Tehran and Washington from building into a military confrontation.
Earlier today Russia's President Vladimir Putin arrived in Damascus for talks with the Syria's President Assad. Could there also be a meeting between Putin and Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah? Putin will next go to Turkey to inaugurate the gas pipeline between Russia and Turkey.
Tell Me Who Your Friends Are...
And if Mike Pompeo, allegedly a top US "diplomat", is in your administration--that pretty much sums up who you are. Make no mistake, currently, the United States has zero diplomats of scale and skill required to handle a clusterfuck which US foreign policy is, but Mike Pompeo is something special--a devout Ruprutist, an Israeli-firster and, in general, is an Exhibit A of a collection of different delusions and disorders preventing such ilk from having any relation with the reality. He is also a BSer of a note when trying to state that:
Evidently this is not quite "true". I, of course, am not talking about the "the buck stops with me" guy in the White House who simultaneously declared war on Iran (and now on Iraq); in the end he is ultimately responsible for being unfit to run this country (but who is?) and making disastrous decisions. If to believe WaPo (I know, I know) it was US Secretary of the State who for months was pushing for assassination of Soleimani (the article at WaPo is behind the paywall), including feverish, several times a day, sessions with DJT precisely on this issue. Well, he, certainly, succeeded. Now he, together with Trump, are both personally responsible for what follows because Iran will respond. Some moves are already in progress, with Chief of the Iranian General Staff already having consultations with Shoigu (in Russian). Obviously, officially those consultations are defined as aimed "to not allow further escalation", which in military lingo means a review of options. Meanwhile, Pompeo makes rounds trying to convince everyone that assassination of a very senior government official of the sovereign nation was "necessary". As I say, yet again, he lied, some Americans already died.
Evidently Pentagon knew what kind of **** Trump was getting United States into and what that meant for US bases in the Middle East. Larry C Johnson was straight to the point:
Too bad (for Pentagon) that Trump went for the most insane option. But, I guess, against the background of a precipitous intellectual decline of US political elites and dual loyalties (primarily to Israel and Saudi money) being a normal fact of US body politic expecting sound geopolitical decisions based on expertise is not a possibility anymore. And so, here we are. I may gather enough will and strength to review some military options but, frankly, it is a fool's errand since pretty much everyone is going to be writing about it. One such piece, well intended, but wrongly justified has already been written by former Marine helicopter pilot in which this was stated:
An admiral in the UK states that an invasion of Iran would require millions of American troops, akin to the occupation of Germany after World War II. But he’s off the mark: things have come a long way since 1945. In World War II, when we wanted to cripple a German ball bearing plant at Schweinfurt, we had to send 291 B-17 bombers, 77 of which never came home. This scale was due to the inaccuracy of the dumb bombs being used. Today, we have GPS and laser-guided bombs that can reliably land within a few meters of their targets. The accuracy of every weapon system, from tanks to planes to artillery, has jumped by many orders of magnitude, thus requiring fewer personnel and delivery systems to achieve the same destructive results. Iraq was defeated with about 225,000 coalition troops in 2003. Millions of soldiers would not be required to invade Iran.
You know by now my attitude to all those historical parallels, especially when drawn inaccurately. The author, obviously, forgot that Iran, unlike Iraq in 2003, does have modern EW systems, including ones capable of jamming GPS signal and Iran's army herself has enough of those very same laser-guided munitions which, considering Iran's nightmarish terrain, will make any armor warfare a living hell for any invader. Same goes for infantry. So, I wouldn't dismiss assessments by Royal Navy's Admiral when he states that the United States will need a number of troops around million or so if the United States wants to "occupy" Iran. And here is a conundrum for the US--once the real escalation starts, the US will NEED to win the war for which it doesn't have resources. Both Trump and Pompeo bear direct responsibility for putting the United States into this strategic trap which, as Phil Giraldi termed it is:
Difficult to disagree. In the end, Trump chose his cabinet and as the saying goes, tell me who your friends are....
Oh Dear.....better shut down the internet. You see it works both ways. It can spread lies but it can also spread the truth. This is the age of the citizen-journalist. So all your presstitutes and paid shills are done for. You can lock Assange up but are you going to lock us all up? (probably). We do not need a degree in journalism or history to discover the truth. People are waking up to your warmongering. You might be able to fool all the people some of the time but not all the people all of the time. Your time has come:
Well George.....you deserve this for your bad delivery (not because you killed thousands, ruined countries and let them get away with 9/11).
When kids are fighting in the playground and are separated by the teacher they always try to establish who started it. I was walking along minding my own business when he punched me in the face and took my lunch money. The teacher knows this is true because the kid has a bloody nose, is sobbing and has no lunch money. The other kid is looking at the ground and has his hands (and the lunch money) in his pocket. Our natural sense of justice demands that we discover "who started it".
US Army Major (ret.) Danny Sjrusen who writes for (the admittedly left-wing) AntiWar.co, has written a good article called Who Started It?: A (Reverse) Timeline Of US/Iran Retaliations. The article has also been published by Zero Hedge (the link above is to the Hedge). Now Zero Hedge is known for its "robust" comments section. This is to be expected because you get pro-Zionist Hasbara trolls, anti-Muslim trolls,antisemitism, white supremacists, racists, misogynists etc commenting (apologies if I have forgotten anyone LOL). However, this free (and often abusive) exchange of comments and ideas often produces very good links and/or good observations. It is a case of sifting through the dross and sometimes holding your nose. So, I have chosen some of the best links and comments below together with my own introduction. I have not attributed the comments because they are anonymous (using an avatar).....but a thank you to the commenters.
Introduction: This comment placed a link to the CIA website. The point being that even the Central Intelligence Agency admits on their own website that a coup was staged in Iran (1953).
The usual response to this by the trolls is that "We built the oil infrastructure and invested in the country then the commies went and nationalized it. They stole our stuff and we kicked *** blah, blah (some more jingoism and swearing LOL). The true story is somewhat different (as usual). Before the US the Brits were in control and the Oil company eventually became BP. The problem was (as usual) that the money flowed to a corrupt Iranian elite (isn't that always the case?) and so when the elected Government of Iran could not negotiate fair royalties etc they nationalized the industry. That is what happens when you refuse to share and act like a bully. The history is fully explained by this link (provided by the commentator):
The Anglo-Zionists started it. They are the bullies. That does not mean that Iran is without blame or somehow perfect. However, the verdict of history is clear and Trumps actions are about to put the icing on the cake.
