Money is rather pointless to the government. We (the US) are in so much debt that we will most likely never pay it off. We'll pay it off with favors,
giving access to things we (here at ATS) don't know about, and access to our markets.
Yet, there's another way to control our debt; Having control.
But let me remind you that this is not about money. It's about control & power, and that simply takes care of money on the side.
Here's a map of the world to help you:
map of the world
I want you to take a look at this map before we continue. The colors are America's current military allies
Look at that. Now think about all of this...
> America is currently fighting Mexico over the drug war. Eventually we'll have control of Mexico, or at least be allies with them
> Greenland, Morocco, Australia, and Mongolia do not really count as possible threats. Thus, those grey areas are taken care of.
> Japan is grey, but that's because America has bases all over there; after the war, we decommissioned their military and took that responsibility.
Relations with US military & Japanese citizens is quite good
> That leaves the Middle East <
From the Middle East / surrounding areas, we are on good terms with / allied with / unofficially in control of / have a presence in:
-Pakistan (needs some work perhaps after the proposed Bin Laden incident)
-Libya (more recent - mostly NATO, which is an official Ally)
You'll notice that the biggest spot we do NOT have, in that area, is Iran. Iran is the next step. It is not about oil, money, or anything like that.
It's not about human rights either. It's about power & control.
Taking Iran will give us most of the Middle East.
SOON, this will all mean that the US will have allies, control, and a major presence in:
-America, Canada, South America & Mexico
-Just short of ALL of Africa
-UK / Britain / Pretty much Europe
-ALL of NATO
-Most of Middle East
Pretty much everywhere else that won't have a strong US presence in it (or be allies with the US) is not a potential threat at all.
Can you see it now? I hope this helps some of the people that haven't looked a lot into it yet.
