Yes: it is tuning up and I believe there are very pertinent things to consider.
1. A military increasingly worried about its capacity to defend the nation if a war of attrition over the Arctic oil/gas assets break out.
2. The increasingly volatile risk posed by rogue States such as Iran and North Korea armed to the teeth with a missile threat quite capable of causing
massive collateral damage on America and already spouting that they are prepared to do it.
3. America seen by its enemies as a fading State, ready to implode. So they are preparing to deliver the knockout blow such as Japan were guilty of
with the attack on Pearl Harbor.
4.A national economy inflating madly as the Obama Administration prints billions of dollars in a vain attempt to pump life into a national corpse.
5. A nation where the fiscal assets are no longer backed by its own gold reserves, but in script such as US Treasury bonds which are owned and in the
hands of your enemies.
6.An economy that can only be sustained whilst the U.S $ is the principal currency in which oil and gas assets are traded. THIS MEANS THAT IF
AMERICA'S TRADING PARTNERS JOIN WITH HER ENEMIES TO DROP THE U.S $ and use another currency; then, overnight the U.S $ will inflate into worthless
script backed by no one.
7. In the scenario posed in item 6. that would immediately see America become a bankrupt nation like Greece and there would be massive civil unrest to
the point of insurrection as individuals, sects, groups, disgruntled military and States would seek to save what they could and go it alone.
8. In such a scenario as described in items 6. & 7. what remained of national government would no doubt immediately begin to subdue its own people in
an attempt to regain control.
Are you aware that the United States Marines are currently looking at devastatingly effective, new weapons to assert CROWD CONTROL? Of course, the
official line is that such ordnance is being developed to control crowds in places such as Iraq and Afghanistan where you may have a couple of suicide
bombers in vests among an otherwise peaceful crowd whom you do not wish to harm as you take measures to immobilize the entire crowd for a short
While that may be a helpful spin off of this new technology, (log on to Metal Storm and check out this link:
) THIS TECHNOLOGY WILL BE A WONDERFUL MEANS OF CONTROLLING LARGE GROUPS OF 'PISSED OFF' CITIZENS OF
'GUESS WHERE AND WHO?'
If the scenario painted begins to unfold, (and pray God it does not), let me also postulate the integration into the mix of what I call, 'The Unknown
Factor X'. Factor X is the demobbing, (a term previously used in World Wars I & II to denote the return to civilian life of large military
contingents and other assets which are no longer required), of a large proportion of the present military establishment.
If this were to occur, you would have tens of thousands of highly trained military with no way of getting jobs, homes etc.running around the landscape
and, not very happy souls either...NOT A VERY GOOD PICTURE AT ALL. And of course, very worrying, when you consider the bunch of paranoids who are
presently in charge of the country.
Hmmn.... Worth thinking about?
