War with Iran: Just like Libya, it's about the US Dollar

Iran has been putting in place for months now, a barter system to trade oil with China for Chinese exports and rice and other grains for oil. They're also trading stockpiles of gold for food/rice with India as they're defaulting on payments because the sanctions have devalued the Rial.


A sharp drop in the value of the rial is adding to Iran's import costs and the financial sanctions make it difficult for traders in the country to channel import payments through unofficial routes involving middlemen based in Dubai.

Perhaps regular readers will recall that back in July, we wrote an article titled "China And Iran To Bypass Dollar, Plan Oil Barter System." Specifically, we wrote that "according to the FT, China has decided to commence a barter system in which Iranian oil is exchanged directly for Chinese exports. The net result: not only a slap for the US Dollar, but implicitly for all fiat intermediaries, as Iran and China are about to prove that when it comes to exchanging hard resources for critical Chinese goods and services, the world's so called reserve currency is completely irrelevant."

Couple this news with this thread about Russia and Iran are collaborating to get into the nuclear fuel rod business, and you see that this has a lot to do with sustaining the US Dollar/US empire as much as it does about Iran's nuclear weapons program.

A war with Iran will be about the preservation of the US dollar. It's why Gaddafi had to be overthrown.

my question is.... if it happened to Iraq, then why would another country be dumb enough to try the same thing? sounds more like a conspiracy to overshadow the fact that these countries are murdering their citizens imo , but i've been wrong before.

Libya backfires... The head of Al-Qaeda Organization in the Islamic Maghreb, Abu Musab Abdel Waduda is calling his Libyan brothers from a notoriously known Tabasa battalion to join and to assist holy struggle on "infidels" in Libya:

On return in Libya you will find weapons, munition and military hardware.


Guess not a kind of civilian war in Libya being prepared – today Libya is a stirred up hornet’s nest where the hornets are ready to sting standing for their own house and bases they want there to live. The war in Libya is to be continued and the name of this war is jihad – holy war for every Islamite. Sharp radicalization of Libya since Gaddafi was killed now seems to be obvious and cannot but raises a certain alert.
