The Real Reasons For Modern Wars
“The Power of financial capitalism had [a] far reaching plan, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalistic fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences.
The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks, which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank sought to dominate its government by its ability to control treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence co-operative politicians by subsequent rewards in the business world.”- Carrol Quigley, Tragedy and Hope, 1966
Throughout human history war has been a most terrible thing. War is nothing more than organized and focused violence unleashed between differing groups, tribes and in the modern era sovereign nations often over the most trifling thing. In olden times wars were launched over insults (real or perceived) or because one European ruler coveted the woman of another or one king desired the land, the means to control the economic flow of a region such as controlling a specific activity such as mining, a river or because a sedentary agricultural community was threatened by nomads and their animals eating their crops etc.
Today wars are fought for more fundamental reasons: to control the resources of a country or region, to take over the trade or markets of a region or to extend the hegemony of one group of elites, rulers or government(s) over another. Today the pre-emptive wars we see being waged by the US, NATO and the Western powers (Caucasians) fall into all three categories. But don’t think there is one monolithic group or a singular reason behind the wars even though the warmongers and instigators are white people (with support from their Negro surrogates like Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice or Barack Obama).
Today wars are often fought by proxy. In other words the elites dupe or pay someone else to do their fighting for them . All too often they exploit or aggravate preexisting tensions or differences between groups to instigate a conflict and they arm, equip and fund both sides. The old divide and conquer tactic works well. It enables a psychopathic minority to rule the world. The psychopaths in the board rooms and suites of power wage war to intimidate and frighten other countries into doing their bidding and to get what they want.
Collectively the elites calling the shots may have differing agendas but for them war is the common denominator to accomplish their goals even if they disagree with the goals of some of their cohorts and co-conspirators. For example the major global oil consortiums needed a war to open Afghanistan so they could construct oil and natural gas pipelines across the country to transport oil and gas from the Caspian Sea region to market via a series of routes to: the Indian Ocean, Mediterranean and Europe. Go to http://leejohnbarnes.blogspot.com/2009/08/afghanistan-war-for-gas-and-oil.html to view the maps and military bases they established to protect the pipe lines.
At the same time another group of elites needed a war to regain control of the Afghanistan opium fields/trade the Taliban had shut down when they took control of most of the country. They used their common love of war and greed to accomplish their goals. They just lied to us why they were waging the war and some of us fell for their okey-doke.
Other groups use war in order to depopulate or destabilize a region so they can force people to flee from a specific geographic area they want to explore, exploit and expropriate resources. Such is the case in Darfur Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo, where years of resource wars for oil, gold , diamonds, coltan and numerous other materials were instigated and triggered by the West. Another prominent reason for war is to eliminate competition, to gain total control of a market. Privately owned Western banks want to control all banking in the world.
The real reason the US toppled Saddam Hussein was because he was selling Iraqi oil in Euros rather than US dollars. The Euro eventually became more valuable (in relative fiat terms) than the US Dollar which posed a threat to the dollar’s status as the world reserve currency. So the US invaded Iraq and deposed Saddam Hussein to send a message to the rest of OPEC not to sell their oil in anything but US dollars!
The US, France NATO and England toppled Muammar Gaddafi because he was a Pan Africanist, he was planning to institute a new currency in Africa based upon African gold. His plan posed an immediate threat to the Western imperialism in Africa and to the IMF, World Bank and Bank of International Settlements the main global loan sharking operations in the world. Gaddafi also threatened to rise the price of Libyan oil beyond what OPEC was charging. He hinted at nationalizing Libyan oil and gas fields and he was partnering with China in huge oil and natural gas deals and building major infrastructural projects in Libya so he had to go!
Iran is another case in point. In addition to being on Israel’s to do list to neutralize it as a potential rival for influence in the region, Iran is also selling its oil in currencies other than the US dollar. But Iran is not part of the Rothschild banking hydra. So it is being demonized as a “terrorist” nation ( forty years ago they would have been called “communists”) and targeted for military attack as are North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela, Sudan and Somalia.
This is what all this war talk is really about, getting these countries to join the Rothschild banking web. The international bankers will not be snubbed or dissed, just ask John F. Kennedy. If Iran doesn’t fall in line and get with the bankers’ program (and everything points to Iran not going along with their okey-doke) they will be bombed into submission and smithereens just like Iraq and Libya.
In doing what they are doing, the West is pushing China into an untenable position because one by one they are toppling the regimes China depended upon for their insatiable energy needs. The question remaining is, how long will China play nice and let the US and NATO close the door on deals they’ve made in Africa and South America for oil? The US also owes China hundreds of billions of dollars which it can never repay. One way out from under the debt is to get into a devastating nuclear war with China. As bizarre as this seems, this is how these psychopaths think!
Russia, unlike China has huge reserves of oil and natural gas. But the US and NATO are also targeting Russia. They’ve reneged on Ronald Reagan promises and the US is installing missile bases in the Eastern Europe countries that border Russia. What is Russia to do? What would you do if you had the military capabilities of Russia and China and you saw what the US and NATO did to Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya?
If saner heads don’t prevail and current trends continue, we could experience another world war. It is clear the US, France, England NATO and Israel don’t want peace, they want hegemony. This is why people like Ron Paul, Dennis Kucinich and Cynthia McKinney are demonized and mocked to scorn by the mainstream media and the Democrat/Republican war party. Don’t believe the spin and lies about going to war over missiles, nuclear bombs and WMD’s The real reasons are about trade, dollar hegemony, control of the world’s resources and a global banking system.
