Finance Crisis "could lead to war"


www.dailymail.co.uk

The global financial crisis could lead to social unrest and even war, the head of the IMF warned yesterday. Dominique Strauss-Kahn said that the billions already pumped into the world economy risked disappearing into thin air unless there is a massive reform of the financial sector. And he dealt a major blow to Gordon Brown's plans for another debt-funded Budget giveaway by warning that the money might melt "like snow in the sun."

I know the first article uses the dreaded word "could" but this has to be considered to the actuality of the comments by the Governor of the Bank of England. The USA must be in the same state. It appears that Gordon has convinced the Bank of England to forego all sense of prudence and support his knee-jerk reactions to this crisis. Also he seems to have completely forgotten that the UK reported unsustainable levels of personal debt over a year ago and he still has got the message - "people in Great Britain do not have the capacity to take on more debt as they can't service their monthly repayments on the debt they already have. With unemployment rising and the threat that interest rates will increase as soon as there is the slightest sign of "new green shoots" it really doesn't matter how much money is made available for new borrowings - it ain't gonna work. Or perhaps Gordon Brown has a really low opinion of the intelligence of "joe public" in the UK.

So much for the Saviour of the world - super Gordon.

It would go great with the plans of TPTB to cull the population of Earth, and more so the population of developed nations, who are trying to fight against this total take over of TPTB.

History tells us that wars follow economic calamities. With all the pent up tension in the air from the american empires 'war on no one in particular', it's not hard to believe that there might be some repercussions. China and Russia are already calling for the ouster of the Dollar. Knowing full well what that would mean for america.

Which has been the plan from the beginning. Weaken the U.S. economically. Turn the U.S. allies against it, spread division inside the U.S., and set up the need for the world to believe they need the Russian, and the Chinese own goals of a NWO in order to survive.

We even have people in government in the U.S. working for this same goal, or something similar, and the current administration is showing that they will submit, and submit the entire U.S. population to a tyrannical rule to save themselves.

Finance Crisis "could lead to war"



Gee . . . YA THINK?????

Here's the hook . . . we ain't got no dough.

We can't feed our people without borrowing from China through the sales of T-bills and the like . . .

We can't bail out our manufacturing sector without borrowing from China through the sales of T-bills and the like . . .

We can't fix the sagging infrastructure of this once-proud country without without borrowing from China through the sales of T-bills and the like . . .

We can't afford to teach our children because the education system is crumbling like a peanut butter cookie in milk without borrowing from China through the sales of T-bills and the like . . .

So, where the HELL are we going to get the money to build bombs, buy bullets, purchase grenades . . . without borrowing from China through the sales of T-bills and the like . . .

Hmmmm . . . Hello there Mr. [insert applicable Asian Banker name here] . . . I'm Uncle Sam . . . say, could we borrow a few gazillion dollars from you so we can buy some [insert name of whatever weapon you'd like and feel free to make it one of those really big nuke type things] . . . We're feeling abit tense over the fact that you now own most of the world and we . . . well . . . are the equivalent of a 93-year-old crack whore lookin' for 'trix' and we'd really like to shoot all of you dead so we can again be on top of the world . . .

WHAT DO YOU MEAN . . . NO???????????

On Sky News, it was reported that the Governor of the Bank of England has told Gordon Brown that the UK is in so much debt that it can not afford any more bailouts.

Go figure.

But, we're already fighting a number of wars.

The war in Afghanistan: not going well.
The war in Iraq: not going well.
The war on drugs: not going well.
The war on poverty: not going well.

At least we're winning the war on the environment. Yaaay!

All I've got left is . . . oh crap . . . I'm so broke I can hardly afford to pay attention anymore.

The Great Depression directly led to WW2 as it allowed extremists to take power in Germany and Japan. Many other wars in history have been as a direct result of economic problems.

It isn't too much of a stretch to think that this particular poo-storm would also cause conflict. Lets just hope that we're on the winning side when it's all over....

The Great Depression led first to the creation of the Bank of International Settlements, based in Switzerland and owned by the same financiers/power-mongers in Germany, the USA, Japan and England who orchestrated the financial collapse that led to the Great Depression.

A key clause in the Bank of International Settlements' charter stipulated that the bank's assets could never be appropriated even if the principal nations went to war with each other. The German, US, Japanese and English governments all signed the charter.

The Bank of International Settlements financed the German, US, Japanese and English war efforts.

Conspiracy? What conspiracy?

Well their evil plan is going exactly as 'planned.'

I'd love to be a fly on the wall at TPTB's dinner chat. The champagne is flowing, the candles are lit, the pool is warm ...

A toast to the end game, my friends.

It normally does lead to war. The more desparate a nation you can bet on an extreme reaction to survive. As others have said, this has repeated itself over and over throughout history.

1849: Gutle Schnapper, Mayer Amschel Rothschild’s wife dies. Before her death she would state, “If my sons did not want wars, there would be none.” (www.thetruthseeker.co.uk...)

The real problem is that the financial sector (a distinct subculture) has created of itself a political force. We are between the Central Banks spanning the nations like a web of revenue flow, and control-organizations like the IMF, the World Bank, the BIS, Most of the G20, all of the financial regulatory and industry policy makers - the very same 'intelligentsia' inhabits both ends of the scam. They, themselves, could just as well have engineered the whole thing; in the end they come out in control and on top - free to repeat the cycle after the next few generations pass.

These 'people' have bamboozled the globe into believing that there way is he only way. By virtue of economic control they are silently coloring ALL international and even intercultural transactions. In the process they are debasing humanity world-wide.

There is a real disconnect between the reality that we are part of, and the reality that these financial schemers have concocted for us to trade in.

Organized corporate commercial exploitation is the wellspring of this poison. Our governments have allowed private enterprise and individual human labor to be financially packaged into 'vehicles' for commerce, that was not necessarily a bad thing; but letting the financial speculators and gamblers have control of the affair was reckless and basely ignorant.

Wars follow financial calamities because it is the only thing that the leaders of the world think is capable of getting nations out of such problems. How do u mobilize a nation to build and make money and move forward, you create a huge war that creates jobs, kills people, and the nations that win get to swim in the treasures of those who lost. Financial crisis fixed... for a few decades.

A War with whom?

WE, the UK and US are at war with the muslim world and have been indiscriminately bombing civillians and 'terrorsits' for years now.

Somehow I think they would have to come up with some really enormous enemy (manufactured probably) to have the common people tolerating any thing else because the ordinary people no longer have any respect, obedience or patience with the visible elite never mind the invisible elite of the world.

This is the difference form now and pre world war 1 and WW 2 generations.

We don't RESPECT THEM!

WE will no longer OBEY them!

They will have to make war on the common man and to hell with the consequences and hell with us finding out who they really are.

Just look at Fred the Shred and the vandalism that has commenced against him......and apparantly, the people responsible say it is only the beginning.

THEY have made themselves 'The Super Rich' the enemy. People KNOW that the ELITE and the ELITE of the ELITE are responsible for everything that goes wrong and that is something they did not know in the past.


So I don't really think everything is going their way in 'their' plan.

May you live in interesting times.........and I think we really do!!!
