The US dollar currently makes up 2/3rds of the worlds global reserve currency. This is because nearly every oil-exporting country in the world exclusively sells their oil in US dollars (the Petrodollar), so nations are forced to hoard large amounts of US dollars, allowing the US to print it almost to infinity without hyper-inflating their currency.

The US government has been doing everything it can to protect their petrodollar status around the globe. How did this all come about?

The Saudi Connection
In 1974, OPEC nations halted the sale of oil to the United States due to its support for Israel in the Yom Kippur War. This resulted in quadrupling oil prices, almost overnight. Inflation sky rocketed and the stock market crashed causing the US economy to nosedive.

US president Richard Nixon ended up fixing this dilemma by setting up an agreement with Saudi Arabia. The US would buy oil from Saudi Arabia, protect them militarily and even sell them military aid and equipment, helping the military industrial complex in the US. In return, the Saudis would buy billions of dollars worth of US Treasuries to help finance America's spending habits.

History dictates how the US government and their ally's have been protecting the wests financial dominance through this petrodollar ever since.

Iraq and the Euro
In 2001, Iraq switched from the petrodollar and began selling their oil in Euro's. Soon after, sanctions were placed on them followed by an invasion with massive destruction to their infrastructure. The Bush administration galvanized support for the invasion with lies about supposed WMD's that Saddam was going to use on either his own people or Israel.

Did you forget his tweet directly after the supposed attack happened (HERE)?


Many dead, including women and children, in mindless CHEMICAL attack in Syria. Area of atrocity is in lockdown and encircled by Syrian Army, making it completely inaccessible to outside world. President Putin, Russia and Iran are responsible for backing Animal Assad. Big price...

He also struck a Syrian airfield with missiles the last time a chemical attack like this happened in Syria, but he quickly relaxed his tone after it came to light a missile probably struck a rebel warehouse storing chemical weapons, he likes to posture in order to appease his haters but he seems to be well aware there's no solid evidence of anything yet. However the fact it seems to be a chlorine attack does make it more likely that it was an attack by Assad forces or Russia because it's not a crime to use chlorine weapons the same way it is to use more deadly chemical weapons. It's easy to show people screaming in agony from chlorine in their eyes and lungs but a missile strike is no different, civilians still get caught in the crossfire all the time. The rebels/terrorists will not let civilians leave because they are well aware they're the best shields they have.

Or how about how anyone can make such an attack with everyday household cleaners?

Which brings up WHY? Is Assad & Putin broke, and out of ammo?

Did they NOT want the US out of Syria?

Make zero sense.

Seems highly likely that a joint US, UK, French military action in Syria ITV News just cited the UK Military air base in Cyprus may be used for some surgical strikes. Lets hope cooler heads prevail and Russia doesn't react to this.

Since when does a family care if their innocent family members were killed by govt bullets as opposed to govt gas? It's one of the most preposterous stances of fake moral outrage that I've ever seen. The West has been killing Muslim civilians all over the world indiscriminately for the last 16 & a half years during the "War on Terror". But we supposedly have the moral high ground by pretending to care about dead civilians if they're supposedly killed by gas?


Does it matter if it is a bullet, gas or a barrel bomb? Look at that little beauty below... In the end a few dozen people die and for some reason we feel the need to waste 100s of billions more and maybe 100,000 more deaths.





Its the Middle East where they all are extremist in including the Jews... I don't think we learned that lesson yet...

If we normalise the use of chemical weapons by accepting their use how many future lives will be lost ?

This isn't about numbers.

No its about EVIDENCE.

All we have is the word of politicians.

Assad and Russia have little to gain from a chemical attack.

The rebels who are losing badly have much to gain from one.

Its a FACT rebels have chemical weapons too.
If BOTH sides have those weapons in there possession then how can we be sure who did it? ESPECIALLY when the rebels have much more to gain from there use.

If the USA withdrew its support like it said it was doing last week the rebels will be crushed. Gone, kaput. Even with western support they are losing badly.

Hypothetically, if Trump issues an attack, or coordination with France, Saudi Arabia, Israel etc... how many levels of chess would that be?

Right, but this wouldn't fit in with his "anti-interventionists" America first narrative, or this ""Q"" narrative, so how would this be justified?

The alternative to 'normalising' should not be blaming your enemy with no evidence and invading a country, killing millions in the process. Only a truly sick whacko would want that.

If Trump tries to overthrow Assad and launches an attack, then he will be just like the other cretins and war criminals like Obama, Bush, Blair.

If you are talking about numbers, weapons like thermobaric bombs and cluster bombs are way more destructive than chlorine canisters. Especially thermobaric. It's said to be the most destructive after nukes. But it's okay, it's not WMD so Russians and Americans use weapons like these to cause huge destruction without any consequences to themselves. Chlorine, which hasn't been used by an army since world war one, isn't anywhere CLOSE to being as destructive as thermobaric.

If I remember correctly, Syria is one of the last countries without a central bank. Iraq was another one and Saddam Housain wanted to have a currency based off gold; the Dinar. You see what happened to him. The PTB want Assad now

That makes sense, can't implement the mark of the beast if they don't control all nations currencies. It appears the end times are approaching, which also explains why me and some people of my church had similar dreams to what I have been shown by the Lord my God.

I know, right? It's like saying "Hey! You can use guns, swords, grenades, and flamethrowers to kill civilians. But don't you dare use rocks because that's the red line!"

Such a shame that politicians only have to pretend to be easily fooled to justify going to war based on a lie.


We all know its not the first time thats happened.

Trump is being manipulated like a puppet all over the place. From the start they manipulated him to do everything they want until they get rid of him and then the neocons will storm back while a ME war is looming.

Trump is a massive Manchurian candidate.

He has to attack Syria also because he feels so much ego pressure to be a tough guy--tougher than Obama.

Also, he thinks attacking Syria will get the MSM of his hide over Russiagate. No chance.

What he doesn't realize is that he's expendable. they don't want him in charge, they just want him to start the war then by the year-end he'll probably be impeached

This is a sinister but clever plot like we've never seen.
