The Real Reason We Went to War in Iraq.
President Bush said, repeatedly, that Iraq was a real threat to America. We were told that Iraq had “Weapons of Mass-Destruction” and that Iraq had close — if not direct — ties to Al-Qaeda. And, we were also told that Al-Qaeda was responsible for 9-11. Let me make this perfectly clear [I’ve read countless intelligence documents proving it] the previous sentence is totally and completely false. There were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Iraq not only did not have ties to Al-Qaeda, but they personally put them to death if they caught them inside of their country. And, finally, Al-Qaeda and Osama Bin Ladin had nothing to do with 9-11. When we tried to enlist the help of other nations the rest of the world was not very interested.
In fact right before the invasion Hans Blix, chief weapons inspector for the international weapons inspector team, went around the media circuit and said there were no weapons of mass destruction in Saddam’s Iraq. Blix famously opposed the war that followed, calling it illegal. He maintains that, given a few more months to complete inspections, he could h ave convinced the intelligence community that there were no WMDs in Iraq. In one meeting with the Bush administration, Blix remembers Paul Wolfowitz, a Pentagon deputy under then-Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, asking,
“but don’t you believe there are weapons of mass destruction?”
“If I did, I would have put it in a report,”
Blix said he answered.
So at the outset we were left alone. International pressure led the president to seek the aid of foreign allies. I believe, and this is my opinion, he was threatened with world war if he did not, and what I am about to show will show you why.
Only Britain, Italy, Australia, and Japan ended up responding and staying for any duration. However our international friends don’t have the same financial setup that we have. Nor can they willy nilly declare [oh sorry war was never and has never been declared by congress] war on another country since it is exceedingly expensive. Most other countries have to seek diplomatic means to settle disputes otherwise they would run the risk of running their country out of existence.
I for one never believed there were WMD’s in Iraq. I watched the news carefully and I saw Hans Blix appear many times. The man even wrote a book, Disarming Iraq, wherein he states there were no WMD’s. You would have to be brain dead to call yourself the leader of the free world, have a meeting with Hans Blix and then say you think there are WMD’s. Or are you?…Follow the money and follow me here for a second. Yes I’m speaking down to you right now, because I have no idea who might be reading this and I want everyone who reads this to understand “beyond a shadow of a doubt”. How is the U.S. so powerful internationally. The answer lies the in the U.S. Dollar.
The Dollar is the de facto world reserve currency, accounting for two thirds of all official exchange reserves. More than four-fifths of all foreign exchange transactions and half of all world exports are denominated in Dollars. In addition, all IMF loans are denominated in Dollars. With so much of the denomination in circulation world wide, the more the rest of the world has had to provide the U.S. with goods and services in exchange for these dollars. Under the guidance of the federal reserve, the U.S. prints the dollar at next to nothing to produce, so the fact that the world uses the currency in this way means that the U.S. is importing vast quantities of goods and services virtually for free.
By the sheer amount of imports that we receive at the expense of the dollar, which is free remember, we are getting goods and services virtually for free. We are running an import to export ratio at nearly 50%. Any other country on the planet would go under with such a staggering trade deficit, but we are sitting pretty with the dollar in vast circulation globally and nearly all transactions being performed in the dollar.
BUT WAIT…Along came the Euro. Not to be outdone by this upstart new colony, the Europeans introduced the Euro as a counter measure to the dollar as the reserve currency. The Euro then becomes the de facto reserve currency of Europe by design. Everyone that signed the agreement, was implicitly agreeing to use the Euro as the reserve currency. As such all who signed the agreement wanted to get something for nothing, just as the U.S. has been doing for decades. Now, if all of a sudden the world switched to the Euro the U.S. would… *gasp* have to actually pay for their imports and our currency would have to be fixed. Our imports would actually start costing us real money instead of the fake stuff we’ve been shipping out. If that were to occur, the Federal Reserve Bank, a privately held company, would not be able to cause the department of treasury to print money at will. They could not float the national debt continuously.
Also, foreign holders of the dollar would be getting out of the dollar even more so due to inflation. There is one bright shining moment where this disastrous case would not take effect. OPEC sells all oil, those that agree, in dollars. The Euro then couldn’t become the big reserve currency since all industrialized nations have to either produce or buy oil to function. If OPEC decided to change this policy however, that would be the single most effective way to eliminate the U.S. international power. Virtually over night, the U.S. induced power cord would fizzle out. If OPEC were to switch to the Euro, per say, the economic boon for them would be quite hefty. All oil trading countries would have to switch to the Euro. Since these countries would be buying the Euro, since anyone who is anyone needs oil and if the currency is in Euro you gotta have that Euro, the strength of the Euro would go up and OPEC would make mega profits. But, the same is true if they switched back to the dollar or the English pound, then that currency would go up and OPEC again would make hefty huge profits in that currency.
Why did I go into so much detail about the Euro?Why did I go into so much detail about the economics of OPEC? Where’s the story?
The Invasion of Iraq
Here are the facts as we know them. Notice I set you up to make the right decision, by telling you first hand that Hans Blix unequivocally said there were no WMD’s and denounced Bush for going to war under that pretext.
On to the facts.
1. on November 2000, Iraq stopped accepting U.S. dollars for their oil.
2. Saddam Hussein switched the currency required to purchase Iraqi oil to the Euro.
3. Selling oil through the U.N. Oil for Food Program, Iraq converted all of its U.S. dollars in its U.N. account to the Euro.
4.remember i said Iraq doesn’t support Al Qaeda, nor did Al Qaeda have anything to do with 9-11
Let’s go over the facts as we know them, here.
- for the first time in history [regardless of our world class intelligence] there was a crisis in our homeland, on U.S. soil
- it was declared a terrorist act
- these terrorist were declared to be needed to be taken revenge against
- The Axis of Evil was declared. [notice this was declared after 9/11]
- Shockingly, on the top of the list was Iraq, of course.
- Two months afterwards the United States invaded Iraq,
- mysteriously the Oil for Food Program was ended
- the country’s accounts were switched back to dollars,
- oil began to be sold once again for U.S. dollars. No longer could the world buy oil from Iraq with the Euro.
- the dollar is immediately restored as the oil trade currency, to the tune of a 17% loss to the country of Iraq.
If you consider these facts to be coincidental, then you my friend are a product of our fine governmentally funded public education system.
But Wait… On the horizon is Iran, the number 2 spot on the axis of evil. Iran has openly declared they would be switching to the Euro. In fact they have created a stock exchange for oil which the world can purchase any oil through their exchange, with Euros. Of course, here comes the media calling the president of Iran all sorts of demons and devils. Oh, did I forget to mention, he too has weapons of mass destruction and is a threat to the region, which we must go and squelch. What is amazing, is that people would fall for this hogwash, don’t pay attention to the news, and that they forget Israel could beat any country over there with their hands tied behind their back. [ As a side note it is interesting the news always brings up that the president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, is always quoted in the news as hating Jews and quoting him as saying Israel is a cesspool or some sort. Yet, there is a large Jewish community in Iran. The president met with orthodox Jewish rabbis and have had discussions with them. Could the media be playing into the White House hands to demonize President Ahmadinejad?]
But, our presidents, cook up some stinky scheme and say we have to go over there and get
- over 4,000 of our men and women slaughtered for economic greed of the U.S.
- over 10,000 injured or permanently impaired for life over U.S. banking filth
Then the president and the media has the audacity to trump up troop support? The president has the audacity to call people unpatriotic for saying they are against a war. The war was, is, and still is unconstitutional to begin with. So, who exactly is unpatriotic? Isn’t the president, who is in violation of the constitution the most unpatriotic person in the nation? Please tell me you knew there was something fishy about this war. Please tell me you were of average intelligence, but just couldn’t put your finger on it. I’ve read CIA reports, FBI reports all stating that Osama Bin Ladin had nothing to do with 9-11, his organization Al Qaeda had nothing to do with 9-11, nor have they even implicated him as being wanted on charges relating to 9-11. I ask you, if the CIA does not even want the guy for questioning on 9-11, isn’t there something fishy going on? Wait, bear with me. The CIA does not want to question Osama bin Ladin for anything relating to any terroristic acts committed on U.S. soil, nor his organization.
I hope people reading this are not brain dead and understand. These are facts. These are not my opinion. These are not, “i heard from a friend of a friend”. These are documented reports and the CIA’s international most wanted list itself. Go research it yourself. People feel they have to prove 9-11 was a hoax. There’s the proof right there. The CIA is not looking for anyone in relation to 9-11. Trust me when I say, the CIA knows nearly everything that is going on on the planet. Do you think for a second, if anyone knew, I guarantee, the CIA knew it first.“When Iraq declared they would trade oil in Euros we invaded”
I found this gem of a video, for those who are visually motivated.
So we did not go to Iraq for oil. Have you seen the price of oil? That should clue you in, it had nothing to do with oil. We went to Iraq to sustain the almighty dollar. Of course the Federal Reserve required it. Of course Wall Street required it. Of course Congress, with their outrageous deficits, required it. Bush delivered Iraq on a silver platter. And idiots are over there dying, thinking they are defending something. If I could smack some sense into every U.S. soldier over there, I would. They blindly follow orders and commit atrocities, in the name of what? No one is free over there. No one is living in harmony over there. We have committed more genocide than Saddam was ever accused of. The media has completely shut down over there. They now get their news from the army news agents, i.e. propaganda agents. U.S. billion dollar contractors are raking in the dough. We’re gonna piss one too many countries off and world war III will be upon us. And, we’ll all stand dumbfounded wondering what happened.
Notice Iran now trades oil in Euros. Wonder why we haven’t invaded? We pick on little kids, not big kids. We leave the big kids alone. I am pretty sure Iran has nuclear capability. Wonder why we haven’t invaded? And, in case you did not know, we have had a relationship with Iran for … ever. Same thing with Iraq. In fact we put Saddam in power.
