What if the wars were never about terrorism they were always about money and corporate greed What IfSubmitted by Ian56 on Sun, 01/13/2013 - 13:42
What If ............
What if it had already been decided to invade Iraq soon after the possible invasion during the first Gulf war was called off in 1992.
What if Dick Cheney started working on plans to make this acceptable to public opinion soon after the first gulf war
What if Saddam Hussein called on the Arab world to price oil in something other than dollars in 1996
What if Iraq had the 3rd largest oil reserves in the world.
What if enough influential people could be signed up to support these plans due to various reasons.
What if these plans were published in PNAC 1997
What if the bankers could be persuaded to support this idea in order to protect the Federal Reserve system by keeping oil priced in dollars.
What if the bankers could be persuaded to support this idea because it would mean the government borrowing more money and making them richer.
What if the arms companies could be persuaded to support this idea because it would allow them to sell more arms.
What if the oil companies could be persuaded to support this idea because they could grab Iraq's oil cheaply.
What if Israel's supporters could be persuaded to support this idea because it would remove a threat to Israel.
What if something major happened to get the majority of Americans to support an invasion of Iraq.
What if it was deliberate policy to provoke Islamic anger by having no post invasion plans and fewer troops than required in order to cause anarchy in Iraq.
What if it was decided to dismantle all existing Iraqi government structures to further encourage anarchy.
What if abuses of Iraqi prisoners were deliberately encouraged to provoke more Islamic and Iraqi anger.
What if basic utilities such as electricity were deliberately removed from the people.
What if there was high unemployment to stoke up fury and resentment.
What if Iraq civil war was deliberate policy.
What if the civil war was deliberately stoked up by the use of depleted uranium, white phosphorous and large numbers of civilian casualties.
What if general Islamic anger could further be stoked up by the use of torture, illegal kidnappings and indefinite detentions.
What if the Iraqi civil war went on long enough to destabilize the whole region.
What if it was decided long ago that such a civil war in Iraq would only be resolved by bribing local tribal leaders with billions of American tax dollars.
What if the Iraqi people got so fed up with the civil war that they wouldn't complain when Iraq's oil was sold to Western oil companies for a pittance, as part of the peace deal.
What if troop numbers in Afghanistan were varied to get a never ending ebb and flow to the level of conflict in that country.
What if the Americans already knew that Afghanistan had never been conquered since Alexander the Great and would not be conquered now.
What if more Islamic Extremists could be recruited throughout the Middle East by American actions in Iraq and Afghanistan.
What if there were significant numbers of indiscriminate killings of civilians, especially women and children, to stoke up anger in the Islamic world.
What if drones could be developed to allow this to be the favored method of killing civilians with few witnesses outside of the local population and little news reaching the American public.
What if a continuing Afghan conflict could be used to encourage Islamic Extremist uprisings and regime changes in other Middle Eastern countries.
What if the Islamists mounting uprisings in other ME countries were supported and protected by the American government to encourage more countries to do likewise.
And so we are here :-
The arms companies have had a decade of record profits.
The big bank execs (those in the know) have got rich out of a decade of large government deficits.
The surviving American big banks have become even larger and more powerful as their weaker and less cogent rivals were taken over.
The big Western oil companies have got their deals for cheap Iraqi oil as well as a decade of high oil prices.
They too have had a decade of huge profits.
The supporters of Israel were deceived - this was never going to help Israel feel or be safer.
Making Israel (and America) less safe encourages more arms purchases throughout the Middle East and the world in general.
It also encourages more American government deficits for the bankers to feed from, as well as the arms companies.
Money and profits for large Corporations was always the sole motivation.
It was never to make Israelis or Americans feel any safer or any better off - quite the reverse.
The Libyan secular regime has been replaced by an Islamic Extremist one, as has Egypt.
The Islamic Extremists, supported by the American government, are fighting to take over control in Syria.
Lebanon and Jordan have started to be de-stabilized by events in the region and the Syrian civil war.
Yemen has it's own civil war, with Islamic Extremists fighting to overthrow a corrupt puppet US sponsored regime.
There is now a growing Islamist movement in sub Saharan Africa, particularly in Mali, and there is also local conflict in Nigeria.
This is the next excuse for continuing and expanding the wars.
Islamic Extremists are still being recruited and anti American feelings encouraged, by a policy of deliberately killing civilians and terrorizing local populations with robotic weapons called drones.
What happens next :-
What the architects of this plan failed to take into account was the growing power of China and Russia.
It will be their undoing.
China and Russia can see as easily as I can what the Americans have been doing.
They can also see that America is much weaker now than it was a decade ago - strategically, economically and financially.
Just like Vietnam, America has demonstrated that it cannot counter a guerilla war militarily.
Both the Chinese and the Russians have taken advantage of it.
China by signing trade deals with half of Africa and growing very fast economically - by selling to American consumers on the back of huge inflation in American money supply.
Russia by taking advantage of high oil and gas prices; and by the disposal of any dissenting oligarchs who might threaten the current regime.
The Chinese and Russians can see how weak America now is.
They are now forming a non USD trading coalition with India, Brazil, Japan, Australia, South Africa, half of Africa and possibly Germany.
This trading bloc will be far larger in GDP terms, than either North America or the European Union.
The Federal Reserve banking system is now facing the biggest threat in it's history.
It is now threatened by China and Russia.
Other countries are moving increasingly towards China's trading bloc and away from America.
Events may run their course and America may suffer a dramatic economic collapse all on it's own.
Or the Chinese and Russians may just have to give it a nudge when they are ready.
A nudge is all that it will take. America is very vulnerable already.
The so called "war on terror" was never about terrorists or terrorism.
It was always about money and Corporate greed.
It will be their undoing, I don't think the Chinese and Russians are going to play ball.
The power of the Federal Reserve bank and the Western private bankers that own it, is going to diminish with the loss of the dollar as the world's reserve currency.
American hegemony will be lost to a new Chinese centered, South East Asian hegemony.
The American government won't have the resources to borrow much money or to buy many arms in the future.
There will be an increase in tension between America and China over the coming years.
It may become a hot war.
There will be one final fling and one last throw of the dice in American military and government spending, the architects of the grand plan do not give up power easily.
It will probably cost a lot of lives around the world, but this is immaterial to the money lenders.
The architects of the grand plan, christened the "war on terror" have miscalculated this time.
There is a million to one shot that the American government might completely reverse course and prevent the scenario above.
There are no signs of it happening.
