Anatomy of Terror



Files show hundreds of US plots, refugee connection






Newly obtained #congressional #data shows hundreds of #terror #plots have been stopped in the #US since 9/11 – mostly involving #foreign-born suspects, including dozens of #refugees.

The files are sure to inflame the debate over the #Obama administration’s push to admit thousands more refugees from #Syria and elsewhere, a proposal #DonaldTrump has vehemently opposed on the 2016 #campaign trail.

“[T]hese data make clear that the #UnitedStates not only lacks the ability to properly #screen individuals prior to their arrival, but also that our #nation has an unprecedented #assimilation problem,” Sens. #JeffSessions, R-Ala., and #TedCruz, R-Texas, told President Obama in a June 14 letter, obtained by FoxNews.com.

The files also give fresh insight into the true scope of the terror threat and cover a wide range of cases, including …

Hospital Charges New Mom Extra To Hold Her Baby After Giving Birth

When my wife was about to give birth, I rehearsed being grossed out by what I was about to witness. But call it nature, biology, whatever you want to call it, once I saw my son's head start to crown, all of the gore and blood and stretching and wonderful stuff you see in health class and/or very weird YouTube searching all just seemed beautiful to me.

The only thing I wanted to do after he was out was hold and comfort the little guy.

Something that this hospital thought was worth charging money for.

Like this mother who was charged $39.35 for "SKIN TO SKIN" after her c-section.






The cost of having a child in the USA even with health insurance is exorbitantly high for most people. Now imagine if this mother didn't have insurance at all?

And sure, the staunchest US healthcare defenders could brag about the "quality" of the care we receive here, but honestly, forty bucks just to hold your kid? Now they're making up charges. This isn't freaking ticketmaster, THIS IS A HOSPITAL.

But honestly, anyone who's seen healthcare billing in the USA knows that it's screwed. Just look at how much hospitals are charged for plastic rulers.

This pack of 100 costs $6 on Amazon.

But this hospital this guy worked in was charged $80.40.

"In Bundesstaaten mit legalen Abgabestellen für medizinisches Cannabis werden [...] deutlich weniger Opioide als Schmerzmittel verschrieben, als in Bundesstaaten, in denen es keine solche Abgabestellen gibt. Dies ist von Vorteil für den Gesundheitsschutz und mindert die Behandlungskosten. Für die Aktionäre der Pharmaunternehmen, die Opioide herstellen, stellt diese Tatsache ein Problem dar, da die Rendite bei diesen Gegebenheiten kleiner wird. So ist es nicht verwunderlich, dass diese Unternehmen nicht nur zu den größten Sponsoren der Gegner von Initiativen für medizinisches Cannabis gehören, sondern auch Behörden und Medien in ihrem Sinne beeinflussen."

US 'accidentally' strikes Syrian Army position, then immediately ISIL 'accidentally' attacks the very same position...



Below are pictures of the aftermath of the aggression of the US-led coalition on a location of the Syrian army in Deir Ezzor.

The bombardment from the missile was directed accurately to cause the destruction of vehicles and mechanisms of the army, the fatalities of soldiers and the wounding of others. The elite forces in the Syrian army managed to repel the ISIS attack immediately after the bombing stopped, which led to many terrorist losses of large equipment and many personnel, with the attack being disrupted.

Nuclear Bombing of Hiroshima, Nagasaki Was Unjustified – US Experts



"The whole truth of what the Nuremburg tribunal would later help define as an international war crime and a crime against humanity has been heavily censored and mythologized ever since war-weary Americans in 1945 accepted the propaganda that the bombings were necessary to shorten the war and prevent the loss of a million US soldiers during the allegedly planned November 1945 invasion," American researcher Dr. Gary G. Kohls pointed out.

This is the inside of a cluster bomb. It indiscriminately kills over a wide area (reportedly the size of a football field) and unexploded ordinance continues to kill and maim long after the bomb is initially dropped. Because of the unacceptable civilian casualties they cause, cluster munitions are banned by over 100 nations, and use is considered to be a war crime. But for the US it is business as usual. Not only does it sell to tyrannical regimes such as Saudi Arabia, but actually approves usage even after documentation of usage in civilian area. Shameful!

Zerohedge: US Approves Saudi Use Of Banned Cluster Bombs (But Only If They're Extra Careful)

Following a report on Sunday, where Human Rights Watch said video and photographic evidence showed that Saudi Arabia used cluster bombs near villages in Yemen's Saada Province at least two separate times, the US State Department said it is "looking into" the allegations but, as Foreign Policy reports, said the notoriously imprecise weapon - banned by much of the world - could still have an appropriate role to play in Riyadh's U.S.-backed offensive (as long as it was used carefully).

A War Written in Stone



Obrázek/fotografie
Source: http://peakenergi.wordpress.com/2013/09/10/a-war-written-in-stone/
Swedish: https://peakenergi.wordpress.com/2013/09/03/kriget-ar-skrivet-i-sten/

Background



Speculations about whether or not the #US will attack #Syria are all over the news. Some believe the whole thing is a bluff, others that it will lead to a Third World War. I exclude no possibility but dare say that a new armed conflict in the #MiddleEast is inevitable. A major #war in the Middle East is written in stone, and in this post, I will try to explain why.

The dollar as the world currency



After the Second World War, the #dollar emerged as a global currency. #USA stood victorious with a fully intact industry and with the world’s largest #gold reserve; there was simply no realistic alternative to the dollar at that time. The post-war monetary paradigm that emerged was called the #Bretton-Woods system. The basic principle of this system was that all currencies were pegged against the dollar, which in turn was pegged against gold at $35 per ounce. In 1971, the Bretton-Woods system collapsed when the United States declared that it had printed too many dollars relative to how much gold it possessed. In practice this meant that the United States went bankrupt and the entire international monetary system had to be replaced.

Introducing the Petrodollar



Until 1971, the dollar was backed by the gold reserve possessed by the U.S. Everyone had confidence in dollars, because they could always be redeemed for the same amount of gold; hence trading in dollars was equivalent with trading in gold. In 1971, this confidence vanished and the lack of trust destabilized financial markets as the dollar now in practice was nothing more than a worthless piece of paper. To restore confidence in the dollar, and to maintain its position as a world #currency, Washington was forced to back its dollars with something else. The problem was tricky to solve because, not only did the U.S lack enough gold, it was also struck by #PeakOil the very same year. The decision was therefore to blatantly back up the dollar with other countries’ oil. #Washington knew that all countries in the world must buy oil in order to survive, and if everyone had to pay for that oil with dollar, the dollar would become even stronger than it had been before 1971.

The U.S. implemented a simple plan 1971: Forcing #OPEC to only accept dollars as payment for its #oil. Earlier, the U.S. gold reserve gave the dollar strength, now it was OPEC’s oil. Suddenly, the U.S. could print any amount of dollars at any time without presenting any underlying assets of its own.

The World of Petrodollar



Simplified to three individual countries, we can explain the current world trade like this:

#SaudiArabia: Provides the rest of the world with oil. Accepts only U.S. dollars as payment and thus have a large pile of dollars in its vault.

#China: Provides products and services to the rest of the world. By selling mainly to the U.S., and therefore getting paid in dollar, China is also piling up huge amounts of dollars.

#UnitedStates: Provides the world with U.S. dollars, as long as the printing press works the U.S. can freely #consume any amount of oil, and import whatever it needs from China.

It may seem absurd, but this is how the #Petrodollar works. China and Saudi Arabia are indeed rich in this system, but they are rich in dollars. If China and Saudi Arabia starts trading, they will actually just trade dollars with each other. No country can shop for their dollars without someone else getting an even bigger pile of dollars. You cannot escape the Petrodollar, period. The only thing that consumes Petrodollar in this system would be indebted countries that must pay of their dollar denominated debts. The fact that all dollars originate from the #printingpress in the U.S., translates into that all nations indebted in dollars are working for the U.S… for free.

Organizations such as the #WTO are actively maintaining this unjust world order by enforcing global #trade in Petrodollar. The #IMF is an organization that in a similar manner emits #loans in dollars, and thus forcing countries into the world of Petrodollar. All #debt must be paid by future #growth, which in turn requires more oil. Both debt and oil is paid for in dollars, the #monopoly currency of the United States. The #media is talking a lot about how the WTO stands for #freetrade and the IMF is helping poor countries get back on their feet. Nothing could be more misleading.

Have you ever wondered why some #thirdworld countries are so poor even though they have large amounts of natural #resources, cheap #labor, non-existent environmental laws and other benefits that would contribute to economic #wealth? These countries have no choice but to sell everything they own in exchange for dollars. Mines that take 10,000 men 100 years to build can easily be bought by the U.S. if the printing press runs a few extra hours in the evening. The Petrodollar is a #rigged game where some will lose no matter what they do.

Why not leave the Petrodollar?



Four OPEC countries have chosen to leave the Petrodollar: #Iraq, #Libya, #Iran and #Venezuela. The first two were bombed by the U.S., after which they re-introduced the Petrodollar. Iran and Venezuela suffer massive economic, diplomatic and even violent attacks from #Washington. Already eleven years ago, the #CIA organized a coup d’état in Venezuela that almost succeeded. Iran is even worse off with half the U.S. fleet off their coast. If you as a leader decide that your country should leave the Petrodollar, you may expect the U.S. to level your nation with the ground and make sure that you never make the same ”mistake” again.
Nobody wants to end up like #Gaddafi or #Saddam; therefore most countries sell their oil for dollars and enjoy U.S. #military protection.

Other nations of the world are either allied with the U.S. in this Petrodollar system, or in desperate need of oil, and thus have no other choice but to recognize the Petrodollar. #Russia is one exception to this rule, and one of few countries that dares to talk back to the U.S, simply because Russia is a huge oil producer and immune to the Petrodollar. Also China may resist pressure from Washington because the country imports large amounts of oil from the enemies of the Petrodollar in Russia, Iran and Venezuela. For countries that do not want to entrust Russia with their future, no alternative remains but to buy oil for dollars.

The Petrodollar is already 40 years old, will it survive another 40 years?
OPEC has lost half of its share of the world oil production since the Petrodollar was introduced. America’s own oil production has already peaked and will continue its downward trend once #shale oil no longer delivers what it promises. This is bad enough for the Petrodollar, but it will get worse.

In the beginning of this post I wrote that the dollar since 1971 was backed by oil. Even if OPEC, Russia and all other countries around the world tried to keep the Petrodollar alive it would not be sufficient since Peak Oil has already occurred. Because of Peak Oil, we know that oil production will not increase, but rather decrease. If oil production drops, the U.S. can no longer shop for freshly printed dollars without causing the price of oil, which is priced in dollars, to reach the moon.

The dollar is a currency backed by the amount of oil sold in dollars; this is the essence of the Petrodollar. The #price of oil will therefore increase if the U.S. prints more dollars than there is oil for sale in U.S. dollars. Similarly, the price of oil drops if the U.S. prints fewer dollars. Since Peak Oil has occurred, the U.S. has no choice but to print fewer dollars until the day comes when the Petrodollar finally dies. If the U.S. continues to print dollars at the same rate as before, #inflation and #hyperinflation will inevitably occur.

To stop printing dollars is not an option for the U.S. since Washington has indebted the country to the hilt. If the #FED even suggests that tapering is on the table, #interestrates skyrocket and #stockmarkets collapse. If the U.S. reduces the rate at which it is printing dollar, the national #debt will implode. If the U.S. doesn’t reduce the rate, the dollar itself will collapse through hyperinflation. Therefore, I am confident that Petrodollar cannot survive another 40 years, or even 4 years. Because of Peak Oil the collapse of the Petrodollar is a fact, the only questions are when and how.

Why must there be a war?



War never starts because someone has the wrong religion, is cruel to its people or anything else you have learned in school. People are fed with these stories to motivate families to sacrifice their sons for others’ financial interests. The #genocide in #Rwanda in 1994 was blatantly ignored, and countries like #France chose to leave the defenseless victims when it became critical. No one accepted the #UN’s appeal for #military intervention because there was no economic interest in an intervention in Rwanda. If there on the other hand are financial interests in a conflict, outside countries gladly provide #terrorists with #weapons in the hope that a situation will arise that justify military intervention.

The Petrodollar is the largest financial interest mankind has ever seen. Two world wars have been started for far less. When Peak Oil is now slowly but surely causing the Petrodollar to collapse, the U.S. has two options:
  • Accept that the #game is lost and let the nation implode.
  • Take advantage of the fact that it has a larger defense budget than the entire rest of the world combined.
The U.S. will obviously #gamble on option 2, especially since the impact of option 1 is at least as bad as a #war. Washington have known since 1971 that this day will eventually come and have already decided on option 2, this is the reason behind the enormous #defense budget. The U.S. has also clearly demonstrated, in for example #Iraq, that Washington will choose option 2 without a doubt.

Although the Petrodollar is doomed because of Peak Oil, Washington will try to exploit this #system to the very end. Let us assume that the U.S. succeeds and defeats Iran without triggering a new world war. Surely the Petrodollar will survive a couple of more years, but then Russia will emerge on the list of countries to be bombed. Or is there some other giant oil reserve I have missed that you can buy for dollars?

As unlikely as the U.S. abandons the benefits of the Petrodollar, is the idea that Russia and China voluntarily would allow themselves to be #enslaved under the very same Petrodollar. It should now be clear to everyone that Russia and China will not let U.S. embark on Iran without a fight. The leadership in #Moscow and #Beijing are fully aware of how the Petrodollar operates and understands the importance of keeping the world’s fourth largest oil producer beyond Washington’s grip.

The current situation gives the U.S. no choice but to bomb one oil country after another to feed the Petrodollar with new oil. In the end, China and Russia will be compelled in self-preservation to defend one of these oil countries, where after the war is a fact. By all appearances, it looks as if this #oilnation is called Iran.

Conclusion



The world has already been divided into two camps and the polarization is likely to continue, especially within OPEC. The #cartel has lost #Gabon and #Indonesia as members. #Ecuador has clearly demonstrated its contempt for the United States by failing to hand over #Assange. Iraq and Libya are in ruins after civil wars and American bombing raids. #Angola has slowly but surely fallen victim to China’s charm. Iran and Venezuela are at the forefront of an open #revolt against Petrodollar. For each day that passes, the U.S. loses influence over OPEC and must by all accounts take drastic measures not to lose control of the Petrodollar.

To directly attack Iran is considered too dangerous, which is why #Obama now threatens to attack Syria instead. Since Iran and Syria has a defense alliance, Washington hopes that Iran will feel compelled to intervene and thus be blamed for the entire war. If Iran does not interfere, and lets the U.S. bomb Syria unpunished, the Iranian regime will be undermined for the foreseeable future.

However, Obama is playing a dangerous game here; the situation in the Middle East can quickly escalate out of control. Neither China nor Russia will accept the U.S. offer of a world war just to save the regime in Syria, but both Beijing and Moscow stand ready to defend Iran regardless of circumstances. If Iran sinks an American ship in the #Persian #Gulf in retaliation for the attack on Syria, the war is a fact. By attacking Syria, the United States is simply giving Iran the right to decide whether or not this is the time for a new world war.

No matter what happens with Syria this autumn, the U.S. will escalate this conflict closer to a war with Iran. Russia and China defends Iran which, in turn, promised to defend Syria. Exactly how this develops is anybody’s guess, but at some point the U.S. will forcibly impose the Petrodollar on Iran, and that is why the #war is written in stone.

"seven countries in five years"





General Wesley Clark:
Because I had been through the Pentagon right after 9/11. About ten days after 9/11, I went through the Pentagon and I saw Secretary Rumsfeld and Deputy Secretary Wolfowitz. I went downstairs just to say hello to some of the people on the Joint Staff who used to work for me, and one of the generals called me in. He said, "Sir, you've got to come in and talk to me a second." I said, "Well, you're too busy." He said, "No, no." He says, "We've made the decision we're going to war with Iraq." This was on or about the 20th of September. I said, "We're going to war with Iraq? Why?" He said, "I don't know." He said, "I guess they don't know what else to do." So I said, "Well, did they find some information connecting Saddam to al-Qaeda?" He said, "No, no." He says, "There's nothing new that way. They just made the decision to go to war with Iraq." He said, "I guess it's like we don't know what to do about terrorists, but we've got a good military and we can take down governments." And he said, "I guess if the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem has to look like a nail."

So I came back to see him a few weeks later, and by that time we were bombing in Afghanistan. I said, "Are we still going to war with Iraq?" And he said, "Oh, it's worse than that." He reached over on his desk. He picked up a piece of paper. And he said, "I just got this down from upstairs" -- meaning the Secretary of Defense's office -- "today." And he said, "This is a memo that describes how we're going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran." I said, "Is it classified?" He said, "Yes, sir." I said, "Well, don't show it to me." And I saw him a year or so ago, and I said, "You remember that?" He said, "Sir, I didn't show you that memo! I didn't show it to you!"
