The Coming Years In Iraqnam
By Joseph E Fasciani
A Brief Preface and Source Credit
Let us turn our gaze from the assassination of the Chief Puppet of Iraqnam's Governing Council to what we can most likely expect in the years ahead. It is difficult to do, as we are mesmerised by the vision of Hell on Earth that the British and US invaders have created after nearly fifteen years of ceaseless warfare against the people of Iraq and the Islamic world.
History gives us the most probable outcome the invaders will impose on this devastated nation, now poisoned for ten thousand years with Depleted Uranium, a monstrous Crime against Humanity as well as a War Crime.
But DU poisons the invaders as well: these betrayed tens of thousands are dead, dying, or have contaminated their families with genetic defects. Of course, none of this touches those who wanted and promoted this madness. They believe themselves successful, ready to attack Syria, Iran, anywhere an advantage can be gained. No price is too high for others to pay for their values.
As I wrote above, a study of History gives us the most probable outcome: in 1918 it was decided by the English and US ruling elites that Germany must not only be blamed for World War 1, it must also be punished in a way that would profit those same elites. I give only the briefest outline here: for the full story please read Chapter 21, "Germany's Hyper-Inflation Under a Private Central Bank" in Stephen Zarlenga's The Lost Science of Money, the Mythology of Money and the Story of Power, Second Edition, published 2004, The American Monetary Institute, Box 601, Valatie, NY 12184. Online, will help you get a copy of this highly readable book, if your bookstore doesn't yet have it. By the bye: Stephen here gives the origin of "bad luck" associated with Friday the Thirteenth two years before a parallel account was published in The DaVinci Code.
Germany's rapid industrialization and growing world power status was signalled when Deutsche Bank financed the Turkish-Baghdad Railway in 1900. German industry, already linked to Istanbul by the Orient Express, was poised to challenge Britain on land and sea. England saw this as an immediate threat to her naval power and her access to cheap Mid-East oil. (Does it ever stop?) In 1907 US diplomat Henry White was instructed to meet with Lord Balfour (yes, the same one!) and ascertain Britain's views on the balance of power in Europe. To get around secrecy pledges, White had his daughter listen in on the conversation and record this dialogue:
Lord Balfour: "We are probably fools not to find a reason for declaring war on Germany before she builds too many ships and takes away our trade."
White: "if you wish to compete with German trade, work harder."
Balfour: "That would mean lowering our standard of living. Perhaps it would be easier for us to have a war."
In this snippet, we learn how cheaply citizen soldiers' lives are valued and the high cost of 'our standard of living' via pre-emptive war. Sadly, nothing has changed in nearly a century. Personally, I believe there are some good people in governance, perhaps ten percent, who work for a better world for all. But their efforts are easily defeated by the 90% who are in it for personal enrichment and fame.
Professor Carroll Quigley, Bill Clinton's mentor, in his Tragedy and Hope and The Anglo American Establishment, sets out the bases for world powers and identifies their human sources. One of these was Alfred E Zimmern, whose 13 page tract "The Economic Weapon" was an early indication of how power would be manipulated and established by industrial nations. Written during WW1, he clearly stated what we now see unravelling in Iraqnam: "What will happen when peace is signed? without raw materials there can be no industrial employment, and demobilization without employmentfor the disbanded soldier spells social disorder" (Now where have we heard and seen this?) "The Alliesby their command of essential supplies controlthe whole process of German recuperation."
Thus, it is essential that Iraq be destroyed and its populace kept down. And the current record high prices for oil products? "(T)he whole civilized world will be facedwith the prospect of a shortage, if not a famine, over a period calculatedat no less than three years."
So, as we used to say in 'Nam: 'There it is.' You can look forward to enriching the Seven Sisters for at least three more years. But there's more, much more, to come.
Next, the US dollar must be maintained as the world's trading currency, and the Euro must be kept in its place. Sodamn Insane had moved to Euro denominated oil, and this could not be tolerated by the world's largest consumer of oil and only hyper-power. The State's ownership and control of oil must also cease, along with all State industries.
No problem. The best way to perpetually enslave the citizens of Iraq (or any nation, for that matter) is to take away control of their central bank and issue of currency. Iraq will now suffer what the citizens of the US, Canada, and other benighted deficit debt-ridden countries share: private profits at public expense.
Prior to the war, Germany had a private form of central bank, but it was under tight State control: "There was a sharing of the revenue of the central bank between the private shareholders and the government. But share-holders had no power to determine policy." p. 579
Now contrast this to the spectacle of the US Senate and House enduring the smoke and mirrors show put on by Alan Greenspan, as he lurches from one inflationary lie to the next! It's an old, old script, but we keep putting up with it. Caught in a futile rat-race, most citizens will never have time to understand why they must run all day to stay in the same place. And yet there is little rebellion from the masses, as their plight worsens. If you ask why not, perhaps the best answer is King Theseus' remark when asked by an attendant how it was that as King his people became so obedient: "I made them love the chains that bind them."
First, the Allies insisted the Reichsbank be made into one that conformed to their "free market" orientation ideology. The task of bringing this about was given to a Chicago banker, one General Charles Gates Dawes, and it became known as "The Dawes Plan". (This all sounds very familiar, doesn't it? The more it changes, the more it stays the same regime.) On p. 580 Stephen Zarlenga points out in bold type that "This granting of total private control over the German currency became a key factor in the worst inflation of modern times."
Now for the finishing touch, le morceau de resistance: to bring the defeated nation to its knees forever (well, at least until you get your profits out) load it with reparations and debt, payable in US dollars! Voila, another masterpiece of private satanic--oops!--I mean central banking, the public curse of the ages and the enriching salvation of a few thousands. And let us note that their track record is absolutely perfect: every major Depression and violent social upheaval was preceded and caused by the collapse of a private central bank. Amazing, isn't it?
At last, dear reader, you understand the wisdom of the US placing renegade criminal banker Achmed Chalabi as Head Puppet of its Council of Puppets.
What's next? That's easy: privatize, privatize, privatize! Don't shade your eyes-Scrutinize! After WW2, the Allies decided to turn German currency reform over to a group of US academics, and this was done under the Morgenthau-Tannenbaum Plan. Gadzooks, what names! It's hard to believe no one else could be found to do the deed, but once again, "There it is!" Jewish bankers to "correct" Germany, but at least this wasn't anti-Semitic, was it? And let us never forget Henry Morgenthau's little book, published in 1945: 'Germany Is Our Problem'.
By now, you get the idea. Just as in Iraqnam, a new currency was introduced, the Deutsche Mark (DM), and salaries were set by the occupying military. "But," notes Zarlenga, "all money claims, savings accounts, debts, etc., were reduced to 1/10th their nominal amount. On the other hand, shares, properties, and other material assets remained undiminished! This represented an unfair redistribution of wealth to the rich."
Careful readers will remember something very like this took place shortly after the Allies "took control" of Iraq, seized all liquid assets, and secreted them. This was done ostensibly for the Iraqis "own good," until they could be used in a new and better Iraq. Billions of US dollars and other currencies vanished without any accounting, and are still missing. They then issued a new dinar, one without Sodamn Insane's likeness. It soon became apparent that wealthy Iraqis were now even better off in relation to poor Iraqis than before OilWar2! All the better to secure cheap labour when they are desperate, right?
Finally, Germany was partitioned into a false East-West dichotomy, the same as Indo-China became North and South Vietnam. We should expect Iraq will most likely be carved into three new states: divide and conquer even more easily. The Kurds may get the autonomous district promised to them for a century, the Sunnis and Shiias may be forcibly separated into new enclaves, to be more easily patrolled by a shrinking US "volunteer" military. These "new arrangements" are unlikely to last very long, however, and then there will be another eruption engineered by the "Special Team" that brought you WW1, WW2, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and all the other endless conflicts world-wide.
Well, we already know that "Iraqnam is Our Problem", at least, that was the plan until Iraq morphed into Iraqnam and the populace stopped throwing flowers and threw grenades instead. Now, however, although the USA and the UK would like to shift the burden of costs unto the world, they still want a handful of domestic private firms to take billions from the oil, and any other infrastructure reorganizations they are able to effect. Judging from historical examples of the fate of occupying troops, however, including the British Redcoats during the American Colonies Rebellion, they will be unable to stay as legitimate government. At some point they will leave.
What then takes place is whatever the scrambled mess of that future era allows the residents to create. The region's people have excellent and long memories, due to their oral traditions exercising their mnemonic skills. Too bad the TV and video jaded populace of the UK and the USA can't equally recall history. For until they can, and until the day when their roles as oppressors and colonists are owned and grieved, and some measure of compensation made to their victims, there will always be "Another War, one more, always just one more" to rally 'round the flag.
Another War, one more, always just one more
It goes on: the troops advance, the bombs fall,
and finally, the city's taken. What then?
Our empire's come too easily; the price paid
far more in their blood than ours.
Our possession's ill-founded,
a bastard born of oil, not mere lust.
If lust alone, then its end known
and welcome, we could sleep,
rest in the arms of our beloved,
and fall into the night's calm.
But this is denied us: our fate
is to burn without rest. Fearful
lest our conquest turn on us,
the orders come down:
Trust no one who surrenders.
They are sleepers waiting to rise
up first chance and murder us
as we did their parents, wives,
husbands, and children.
Oh yes, we will liberate them,
but in our good time, in our
good time, not theirs. For they
are the losers, and we the victors.
