Ok, the thought just occured to me, "what if". I know cliche right, but seriously. This is a techique our own government or agencies within, use to leverage and manipulate others to their way of seeing things. Check it out please, and see if you see what I do.

Because from where I am sitting, it looks like the table has been turned and my own government is getting a dose of it's own medicine.

I'll provide some sites that can explain it a lot better than I could, and quote some of the key info provided by linked sites. This is almost mirror image, exept the US of A is getting bent, as the saying goes.

I recall this activity from the Zeigeist Addendum video I beleive, and it just has to be, it matches up text book.

Some example and source links:

I couldn't get the media to play, but there is a transcript and ICH is good on those.

We speak with John Perkins, a former respected member of the international banking community. In his book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man he describes how as a highly paid professional, he helped the U.S. cheat poor countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars by lending them more money than they could possibly repay and then take over their economies.

Confessions of an Economic Hit Man

Jackals are CIA-sanctioned people that come in and try to foment a coup or revolution. If that doesn’t work, they perform assassinations—or try to. In the case of Iraq, they weren’t able to get through to Saddam Hussein… His bodyguards were too good. He had doubles. They couldn’t get through to him. So the third line of defense, if the economic hit men and the jackals fail, the next line of defense is our young men and women, who are sent in to die and kill, which is what we’ve obviously done in Iraq.

It was giving loans to other countries, huge loans, much bigger than they could possibly repay. One of the conditions of the loan—let’s say a $1 billion to a country like Indonesia or Ecuador—and this country would then have to give ninety percent of that loan back to a U.S. company, or U.S. companies, to build the infrastructure—a Halliburton or a Bechtel.

This one sums it up fairly well, notice the books listed at end which reference this activity;

I wholeheartedly agree Advisor. When this stuff was starting to fall apart, I immediately thought back to Perkins book. If you haven't read it yet, you should.

The only disagreement I would have is whether these people are rogues. This is to well orchestrated in my mind with pushes from the very top.

Interesting thread dealt with this in another way recently, have a look. It's the only other place I have seen Perkins mentioned lately besides the new Zeitgeist movie.

I would have missed that thread, thank for linking it.

I'm going to look that book up, might be worth having on the shelf. I like books.

As for being rogues, they could be or could not be. I call them rogues because if it is a CIA thing, then why would they do it to their own?
Of course foreign agents could be doing it, but they learned it from some one, just like the CIA learned it. Besides, with the way they operate, it would not surprise me in the least to find out it was a domestic group gone double or free agent.

ADVISOR, I just finished reading Perkins's book and wanted to see if it was discussed here. Your thread came up. While reading Confessions, I thought, "Jeez, looks like the citizens of the USA, the country, have been treated in the same manner as the developing countries mentioned in the book!" That thought sickened me.
The animal, corporatocracy, eating its own young.

Having lived through the years of ECH, familiar with Bechtel, etal, and what they did worldwide, and remembering the coups/wars in the nations mentioned, Perkins tied it all together for me.
As early as the late 1970's and certainly throughout the 1980's, groups, such as Food First, alternative publications, such as In These Times, alternative radio such as Pacifica, would tell of the effects of the corporations on the people and countries in which they did business. Perkins laid out the big picture, explaining it.

I didn't find this in his book, but it goes along with it. There used to be World Fairs, where American corporations would be proud to display their ingenuity to the world. We haven't had them for decades; corporations no longer wanted to be labeled "American", as they did their dirty work globally. To wit, Halliburton wanted headquarters in Dubai. Corp's like Halliburton are only American when they want to be: cry for American tax breaks and claim to be treated like an "indiviudual" but give the shaft to the citizens paying the taxes!

To the corporation, America is only another country to be mined for its resources and labor, and, sadly, military might. The political party in America historically associated with big business, the Republican party, was the corporate connection to government. The Democratic Party is a newcomer to the corporate world (Bill Clinton). If a party can frame patriotism to be in terms of supporting the military, then that party, when in power can use those troops for corporate business. To wit, Iraq.

One of the results of corporatocracy mentioned in the book is the privatization of basic needs, such as water, education, and now it seems, war (Iraq with its contractors). Sure enough, with the help of the Republican party in power since Carter, Americans have been asked to privatize more and more. No new taxes but a lot more "fees". And don't give taxes to help citizens, why that's socialism; instead give them to corporations, that's capitalism! What a sad, greedy, sick twist.
Union busting is another corporate favorite. Who is anti-union? The party of John McCain. No wonder Americans have lost jobs!!

America must have another revolution. Now. To fight back against the power of the corporation. Not the communists. Not the socialists. Not Castro. Not Iran.
The colonies fought back when they found themselves taken advantage of by England, their power weakened. Citizens have been taken advantage of by the power of corporations in Washington, their power weakened.

Americans have been enslaved by the power of corporations, our economic power given to countries, like Saudi Arabia and China.

At a crucial time, when Americans should not be afraid, citizens are subjected to scares of the word "terrorist" at political rallies and political advertising. This is supposed to be the Home of the Brave! To scare citizens..THAT is taking away their power. Those in power who would scare citizens are as treasonous as Benedict Arnold. He worked for the British, today's BA's do the bidding of the corporatocracy.

Don't be afraid. Get angry. Getting angry is your heritage. To wit, the Boston Tea Party.

I'm currently reading Perkins' latest, The Secret History of the American Empire. His books are great -- anecdotally written, they really give a sense of color and depth behind world events.

I'll agree with the premise that the 'clockwork' of the current global economic crisis match a lot of what Perkins describes, but the scope of what's currently happening seems much larger, and more difficult to explain in terms of targeted economic warfare.

However, the existence of such covert economic manipulation, in the past, certainly validates a great range of speculation... after all, the IMF and World Bank are quite clearly above the law, and demand the secrecy of their actions to be 'inviolable'.

I'm gonna have to disagree with the USA getting a taste of it's own medicine. The USA has been getting this medicine for near 100 years. We have long lived in a debt based economy, of which has always been impossible to pay back. Because the interest money in itself is never created.

The only difference is we have been getting loan after loan as long as we have went along with things. And the people in power have kept that status quo going for some time now.

The interest has just at this point gotten to the point where they can no longer keep borrowing out money to pay the interest rates. Which is by design. So we to eventually fall into place, after our resources and manpower has been used to get the rest of the world in line.

To blame the USA is what is wanted. This entire economic crisis is slated to be blamed on the US, rather than the fractional banking systems and the men who run it. The USA is merely a scapegoat. It is to make free market capitalism appear to be the cause of all this, because the people have been lied to for so long thinking we were under such a system. Which is needed in order to promote a world wide socialist/communist society.

The zeitgeist movie does exactly this. It clearly points out the problems of the federal reserve, very much so. That is the bait. And then at the end pretends money is not a representation of resources, and talks about a socialist, cashless resource system. This is the switch.

Money is merely the representation of value. The resources themselves are what actually have the value, thus why people ask for gold or other backed forms of currency. The movie pretty much suggests just giving up all the resources(things of value) to a central authority in the name of "for the good of the people".
