The financial world is teetering. Gold is rising fast in price, and the Dow stock exchange magic number has just dropped severely, partly as a response to Trump’s ludicrous China trade war.
Whereas Trump was elected on a platform of repairing international relations, he is now playing the warmonger card. One wonders if Mueller’s semi-exoneration of Trump at the end of Mueller’s investigation resulted in Trump’s peaceful intentions being brought to heel. A nasty deal.
The warmongers in Washington seem hellbent on strangling any country formerly listed as a target. Remember the list? Libya, Iraq, Syria, Venezuela, Iran, Russia… all countries that had independent banking policies and oil. Oil, the addiction, and money, the power tool. In particular, the USA wields its SWIFT interbank transfer system to sanction and penalise countries that don’t agree with the USA world domination aim.
Trump called President Xi his enemy last week, and is now sending warships to Iran’s ports. All the better to cause a false-flag disaster and thus start spending more on arms, which might just help stave off the recession the IMF says is inevitable.
A war with Iran would be a nuclear war, with Russia and China backing up Iran.
It is astonishing to me, that most of the world goes along with the US’s warlike behaviour and endless propaganda.
Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, and Libya lie bleeding and impoverished by US wars that were based on false claims.
Yet the world seems to accept a new round of false claims, vicious sanctions, and war posturing, a populace more abjectly docile than ever. So sad.
