Regimes possessing global ambitions love a crisis. The process creates a vacuum whereby quiet intensions may articulate an advantage under the cover of chaos. Throughout history this method is frequently a diversionary tactic often observed in the “Trojan Horse” or “Divide and Conquer” metaphors.
Not intending the notion of a history exam however the idea does offer a measure of value to exhibit how advantage can be gained from a crisis or how, in the case of a “manufactured crisis”, advantage can be assured. Take for instance the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand (and his wife Sophia) in 1914. A tragic moment in time to be sure but on its own, it would seem insignificant as a cause sufficient to trigger what history now refers to as World War I. What is significant however is that this single incident marks a specific point in time were a series of events which followed find their “cover”.
In deed, many history books identify this one event as the starting point for WWI which clearly ignores the less conspicuous motives, at the time, of Russia, Germany, France, Serbia, Rumania, England and to a lesser degree, Italy. One must confess that this is a fairly influential group of benefactors and of course, what follows after WWI is the complete dissolution of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Perhaps, even more to an advantage is the consideration that at the conclusion of WWI, the Treaty of Versailles might very well have set the stage for yet another series of opportunities that followed: the overthrow of the Russian Czar Nicholas II, the emergence of the Nazi Party, the ascension of the Nationalist movement in Italy and ultimately to WWII and events occurring from there on.
If we sift through the chaff sufficiently, what we discover is a very unseemly community of opportunists. They are conspicuous largely due to the fact that once the fallen are set to rest, they are the “what” that emerge financially advantaged. History leaves the truth of this observation in the tailing memoirs of its recordings and to that end, I leave you to make your own assessment as to substance of this statement. I’ve limited time and space herein to fully engage in a complete discourse.
The Policy of Crisis, be it coincidental or manufactured, is an extremely lucrative trade: fortunes are amassed in Political Alchemy (consider Al Gore’s family history as a fine example.) However, as I discuss using various forms throughout the 3 Volume “Blind Vision” series, in the case of the U.S., no matter which military incursion this Country engages, there is never a tangible and/or measurable benefit to the People of the Nation. Think about it! Of the Trillions of Dollars spent on military armaments and expeditions, can anyone say that the price has produced an economic benefit? I’m well aware of the opposing arguments, the “making the world safe for democracy” and it’s “In Our Nations Economic Interests” renditions. I’m even considerate of the technological gains that one might suggest find their gestation in military development. Still, it doesn’t add up!
“Freedom is not a notion on which one can expand upon or enhance; it is its own providential design. However, as we have seen, it can far too easily be surrendered!”
What does this all have to do with Iran? Simple, there is a perfect storm upon us and the kinetic force of this storms eye is centered on Iran. The next phase of the storm will be the articulation of influential forces triangulating policy of crisis for a specific advantage and this is an absolute truth. Here are a few points for you to consider:
- What is wrong with our brand of Democracy that the world needs to be made safe? See the previous quote (insert) on “Freedom”!
- What is so unique about our Nation’s Economic Interests that we simply can not acquire through conventional means? Further,
- How have you, as an American, benefited from these in such a way that your interests are preserved or enhanced? Oh yes, must be all of those cheep “t-shirts” at WalMart!
- How did WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War, Cold War and so on generate an improvement in your quality of life? Must be all of those “entitlements” the Government thrust your way to keep you from asking relevant questions!
- Why does the U.S. assume the “threat” of Iran when France, Russia, China, Pakistan, N. Korea and quite possibly India are at the core of the issue? I suppose we will leave it to, God forbid, the World Court (Hague) or the U.N. to decide.
Mind you of course, I have my own answers to these questions but my opinion isn’t important particularly in the vacuum of substantive discourse. Yours, however, is! In fact, 300 million opinions are extremely important because these are the People who pay the perennial price for the Policy of Crisis!
Here are a few of my personal observations each the result of years of study and human behavioral observations and here is one fundamental truth which I’ve discovered that binds all of my thinking: there is always a cause affecting each effect. Consider, if you will, a few points for why the “Iran – Financial Policy of Crisis” is so treacherous:
- Global Financial Structure has exceeded its mathematical sustainability. Having done so,
- Influential Forces will not willingly surrender to a structural remedy, they will seek opportunity to “cover” their strategy which is to,
- Mask a Global Financial Restructuring that will enable these Forces to maintain their control. This will occur, likely, in a perfect storm scenario whereby,
- The Middle East becomes a “flash point” of crisis which will appear to occur as either/or a combination of tech-security breach on the global financial system or a crisis of military consequence. The E.U. will be a precursor but make no mistake, China will attempt to flex its economic muscle and Iran will delight in the challenge!
All or any of these will draw the U.S., economically and militarily, further in to the fray.
History illustrates quite clearly that the Middle-East is a black-hole full of past failures whereby western ideologues have attempted to partition, to their advantage, the terrain. These tribal cultures have historical roots that trace their origins before the dawn of recorded history and they are not the least bit interested in western-style ideologies, political or otherwise.
Yet there are, in addition to these, regional conflicts that also find there roots in the Persian conflicts with the Mongol Hordes. To this very day there are skirmishes between Pakistan and India, Pakistani and Afghani tribal disputes and of course, there is always China looking to expand and secure its influences in the area.
Not to be ignored is the helmsmenship of the Iranian President, Mr. Ahmadinejad. He aligns his theological belief system with a sect of the Shiite referred to as “Twelver”. This sect holds to a belief in the supremacy of the 12th Imam, or Mahdi, who in 869 BC began his Occultation and whose return occurs concurrently with Jesus Christ in the end of times. Here’s the great danger; Mr. Ahmadeinejad as well as many of his fellow Shiite’s, believe not only that we are living in these end of times but that they can expedite the process. There is nothing quite predicable as the unpredictability of a People who see their future in death. Please do a little reading if you will on the ethos of the Japanese Kamikaze should you need a little reminder of the greater risk to which I speak.
What is the point? George Washington, in his farewell address, warned his young nation about the risks of becoming embroiled in foreign wars and interests. His words are as relevant today as they were then. The U.S. is headed down a path navigated by Nymphs who neither understand World History nor grasp the consequences of their ignorance. They are being quarantined by this Policy of Crisis and its grasp which voids conscious and responsible thought and this Nation will pay a severe price for it!
“There is still an even greater consequence of ignorance that remains indefensible! It is the error of ignoring the simpler truth that there will always be an unintended consequence!”
Stop the madness before it is too late! With each passing day, there is yet another missed opportunity!
