The Importance of War
January 8, 2012 in World
I ended yesterday’s article by listing the death toll in Iraq as a result of our war on terrorism.
These numbers show that more than thirteen thousand Americans and more than 1.5 million Iraqis died in answer to the three thousand people that died on 9/11. That is like paying a hundred thousand dollars for an item on McDonald’s dollar menu.
It is clear that the war was about something other than punishing those who committed the terrorist acts.
The United States and its allies fell into the trap of ignoring the important while carrying out the urgent. An urgent mentality allows for justifying illegal actions in the name of self-defense. This philosophy compares the “king’s war” of taking property versus the “just war” of self-defense. If we look closely, we can see that the only difference between a king’s war and a just war is which side you are on.
Therefore, every war is a king’s war. It is always about possessing, taking, or protecting property.
Said another way, war is state-supported murder for the purpose of business.
It may be marketed in such a way as to be an urgent matter of self-defense. However, when we get past the marketing, to the underlying cause, it is always about business. The business of oil, religion, military equipment, military supplies, land development, or something else is always the purpose of war.
This is why I choose to write about financial issues instead of political races and military conflicts. Financial issues are the important motivation behind the urgent things. They drive the races and conflicts. Mainstream media loves to write about the drama of politics and war.
This is a smoke screen, a distraction from the important.
For example, the news is currently full of rumors of a new war in the Middles East. This time, the world’s opponent is Iran.
The urgent excuses for this potential war include punishing Iran for their role in 9/11, disrupting Iran’s nuclear weapons capacity, and enforcing freedom of seas in the Strait of Hormuz, through which much of the world’s oil leaves the Middle East.
This is the third time this script for war has been used in the past ten years. The first two times were with Iraq and Afghanistan. What was the result of these wars?
According to a story circulating on the internet, the primary purpose of those wars was to set up a centralized bank run by the New World Order.
Is it possible that this is the goal of a war with Iran?
It is according to those same stories.
Iran’s central bank is run by the Iranian government. It is not part of the New World Order’s banking system. A war would destabilize this bank and create a need for one run by outside interests.
There is another reason for this war.
Any war that involves the United States and other G5 countries props up their fiat currency system based on debt by creating economic activity.
This economic activity delays the inevitable transition that is on the horizon. It keeps an old system in place a little longer while we prepare for the new one.
I’ll continue to write about how to prepare for this new system in a couple of days.
Tomorrow, I’ll update some of the stories previously discussed on this site.
