Many of you have been writing emails and sending messages talking about what you have seen since embarking on your information quest and suggesting that perhaps my projections were “a little tame”. Indeed, but for strategic reason, and hopefully you understand why. Still, things seem to be continuing as expected.
This week, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts; former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury and renowned American economist noted as a co-founder of Reaganomics, warned that “World War III is imminent and all human life is now in grave danger”. Does this sound familiar? It should, numerous economists and strategists have started sounding very similar alarms. I don’t think I have to reiterate much on this thought. Besides, it doesn’t take an advanced degree to see just how much economics are playing in the global arena, how so many nations are readying for war or how our domestic situation is suffering accordingly. Furthermore, once again and historically speaking, when economics get rough, war is on the horizon.
Dr. Roberts goes on to say that “Americans are the worst informed people on the planet. They are unaware of the growing momentum toward war with Russia. The presstitute media throughout Europe, especially in the Baltic states and Poland, is hard at work creating in people’s minds the fear of a Russian invasion. The orchestrated fear then provides the basis for the American puppet governments to beg troops and tanks and missiles from Washington, and the US military/security complex, counting its profits, is pleased to comply.” That is a mouthful and extremely deep… but I must agree.
This is just one side of the issue of course. This week, the U.S. House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly to urge the President of the United States to arm Ukraine in its conflict with Russia; a move that Putin has repeatedly warned against. Oddly enough, both the US and the UK already have “military advisers” training Ukrainian troops INSIDE Ukraine, which has not gone unnoticed by Russia and its allies. This has not helped ease tensions as you can imagine.
Of course, a large portion of the few who are actually informed about this situation are quick to dismiss this as a Baltic or Middle East problem, and a problem that simply will not come home. I beg to differ. An American Warning has reported on several different platforms, about the 13 Arctic Russian bases currently being opened. We have talked about the Russian and Chinese military hardware already present in South America, both of their military advancements that seem to be catching everyone off guard (E.G.: Chinese mountain tanks, Russian subs capable of evading US detection), and we have discussed the growing chain of anti-American alliances throughout the world but more importantly… within a few hundred miles of our borders. In fact, how many reports have we seen lately regarding Russian or Chinese military/equipment in this hemisphere? Too many.
It gets better. This week, the Chechen parliament threatened to send weapons to Mexico and “resume debate on the legal status of the territories annexed by the U.S.” in retaliation to the U.S. Congress calling for arming Ukraine. I don’t know about you, but this sounds like it’s all coming right to our back door and becoming fairly personal. Now, throw in the idea that technology has made it possible for many of the US-opposing nations to reach out and touch someone with weaponry, it shouldn’t be hard to imagine American soil seeing foreign force in the near future.
As I have stated though, there are a few things that would need to happen first. Still, the US is already bombing areas in Northern Syria without consent. This is angering quite a few nations. This week, the United Sates basically took over the stalled fight for Tikrit, and in doing so, pretty much assumed leadership of that widening war. ISIS is on the rise (thanks again America), and now the monster must be destroyed and the US is reacting as expected. But the US seems to be playing these conflicts out from both sides. One can only assume that this must mean that Syria and Iran are again in the cross-hairs because the previous attempts failed and perhaps a final opportunity is coming to fruition. I suppose we will see.
It just seems odd to think that U.S. negotiators have given up ground on demands that Iran be forced to disclose the full range of its nuclear activities at the outset of a nuclear deal; especially considering the many connections that have been established between Iran and certain “terrorist organizations”. But as you already know, there are reports saying that Iran could be permitted to continue running their nuclear program, a program created in-part by the Russians, and at an underground site once suspected of housing illicit activities and more than likely impervious to air attacks. Does this make sense? Seems only too convenient considering that such a move would surely anger nearby nations and prompt them to protect themselves and perhaps even elevate tensions further. This equates into weapon sales and a bigger war – which would be needed to pull a nation out from utter economic devastation.
As a matter of fact, the more I think about it, the more I believe the current situation in Yemen is part of this “bigger plan”. Yemen is butted up next to Saudi Arabia. Yemen is about 18 miles away from Djibouti over water. Djibouti is connected to Somalia where there has been a secret war (in violation of the terms of an international arms embargo) going on there for a while. As stated in RELOADED: An American Warning, the US presence there is more significant than most realize, hosting at least eight Predator drones, eight F-15E fighter jets, and nearly 2,000 US troops and military civilians at a base in neighboring Djibouti. I am sure this has increased since I first wrote about that.
Now keeping in mind that Saudi Arabia is (currently) an ally of the US, we need to know that Saudi Arabia has already talked about building a nuke in response to Iran’s actions and has now imposed a naval blockade on the Red Sea Strait while deploying some 150,000 troops. This is a very large and public escalation. This week, coordinated Arab attacks led by Saudi Arabia began targeting Iran backed groups in Yemen. And then the Kingdom accused Iran of “aggression” across the region. Starting to see what I am talking about? A lot of very interesting connections here.
Meanwhile, Iran condemns the military action and seems willing and wanting to do something about it. Some are now calling the situation a “Middle East crisis” that might very well be the “worst in a generation”. Basically it’s conflict from Yemen to Iraq — while the US caves in nuclear talks with Iran? We should probably also factor in our deteriorating U.S.-Israeli relations and how that will probably turn out in regard to Iran. Israel will protect themselves preemptively as previously demonstrated. One can’t help but to speculate the outcome here… or the reasons for that matter.
As Zero Hedge has noted, the biggest significance of any Yemen conflict is due to its location, which not only shares a border with Saudi Arabia, but more importantly the Bab el-Mandeb strait which connects the Red Sea with the Gulf of Aden: it is the fourth-biggest shipping choke-point in the world by volume. It’s located between Yemen, Djibouti, and Eritrea, and connects the Red Sea with the Gulf of Aden and the Arabian Sea. Basically, if this is captured, it is strategic brilliance in regard to resources. The US needs this under their influence.
Why? As you may or may not know by now, Russia has made their presence and interest in the Mediterranean well known. Not only do they have a boat shop there in Tartus, their recent dealings with nations such as Cyprus, their naval military drills with China or their coming to the rescue in regard to Syria a couple years ago, are just a few of examples, but enough for anyone to accept this fact. I do not think it is in the better interests of the US or its allies to fight the Russians in the Med; at least not yet because that could get really messy really fast. The US and its allies need another strategic position. True, both the British and the US already have military bases near the Strait of Gibraltar, but it would make sense to seize the Bab el-Mandeb strait… that could be extremely important moving forward. With Gibraltar somewhat covered, a strong presence in the Persian Gulf, this is the only piece left really.
I’m looking at the chessboard and I’m seeing moves and counter-moves. I may be off a little here or there, but to me, it looks as though the road is about to get a little bumpy friends. I believe Dr. Roberts is correct. As I have stated numerous times, the Middle East and/or the Baltic regions will go first. Africa is going to be in the mix and will more than likely go right after. From there, probably the Asia Pacific and then eventually our own back yards. Of course, that order depends greatly on the stock market and the dollar. So the domestic could very well come first. I suppose we’ll see.
Yes… unfortunately, when I look at the board, I also see our domestic situation for what it is. Our economic situation is deteriorating at a rather alarming rate and this issue will speed up if things continue down this road. New international banks are emerging which is creating an opportunity for nations to trade for oil without the dollar. Nations around the globe are already dropping the dollar like a bad habit and US allies are joining the AIIB left and right. This will force dollars back into the US, force the US to pay for oil and other goods in something other than dollars (or drill for more oil – or go to war for oil). This creates the very real possibility of hyperinflation, which all equates into some pretty rough times economically speaking; which just brings us full circle into what I have been trying to say the whole time. Again; if an economy begins to falter, the nation that holds that economy will soon go to war. For us, it looks as though it might very well be both global and domestic.
I have been reporting on a strong possibility of economic calamity coming very soon. Now for the really scary part: if I can see all this… then you can bet your bottom dollar the decision makers can see it too. This could turn into chaos very quickly. I can only imagine the uproar at home when people find out their entitlements and government aid are no longer available or find out that they cannot purchase anything with their now useless money. Government is probably planning accordingly. In fact, if I were in charge of preparation (keeping in mind that emergency preparation and response is something I am educated in) and knowing what I know of strategy, I would put my internal defensive measures towards the United States’ number one economy that just so happens to already be on the verge of collapse itself (California), and oddly enough, right next to Mexico. Think population and potential fallout. Is this what Jade Helm 15 is all about? Or maybe it’s simple preparation for a Russian retaliation – after all… remember the Chechen threat. Or maybe it really is a simple (yet very complex) training exercise. Hard to say at this point. Occam’s Razor?
Look, I’m not trying to be an alarmist. In fact, really all I’m doing here is reporting what other experts and media have already said and trying to connect some dots for you; putting it all together in one piece. So if you can see it and I can see it, the government can probably see it too. And if they can see it, they are undoubtedly planning for it… or worse; betting on it. Yes, the chessboard is big and there are lots of moving parts, but try to remember that this article is nothing more than an update; not the total picture. The previous pieces are still in play; but guess what that means…
