How Banking is Behind the New World Disorder+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++http://www.landofthefree.co.uk/site/component/content/article/1-latest-news/141-berkshire-911-truth-movement-analytical-newsletter-septemberoctoberWhen the governments of the United States and Britain were threatening to bomb Syria, the BRIC countries stepped in. The BRIC countries are Brazil, Russia, India and China, who have no military alliance, but maintain their independence from the Anglo-American domination. Various smaller countries have tried to maintain their independence, but have been more vulnerable. Ellen Hodgson Brown is president of the Public Banking Institute, and explains how banking is behind the present military situation, in an article 'Making the World Safe for Banksters', published on 5 September (http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article36123.htm). She wrote: "Greg Palast posted evidence of a secret late-1990s plan devised by Wall Street and U.S. Treasury officials to open banking to the lucrative derivatives business. To pull this off required the relaxation of banking regulations not just in the US but globally. … The 'end-game' would require not just coercing support among WTO members but taking down those countries refusing to join". Further on, she explained: "Under a subheading 'The Holdouts', she points out that Palast did not discuss the countries that were not in the World Trade Organisation at all, including Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Iran. She continued: "These seven countries were named by U.S. General Wesley Clark (Ret.) in a 2007 “Democracy Now” interview as the new 'rogue states' being targeted for take down after September 11, 2001. He said that about 10 days after 9-11, he was told by a general that the decision had been made to go to war with Iraq. Later, the same general said they planned to take out seven countries in five years: Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Iran". Other countries later identified as 'rogue states' that were also not members of the BIS included North Korea, Cuba and Afghanistan, she added.
John Perkin's books are very good at explaining world economics and how countries go bankrupt thanks to peoople like Perkins.Books | John Perkins Official Web Site http://www.johnperkins.org/books/Hoodwinked: An Economic Hit Man Reveals Why the World Financial Markets Imploded–and What We Need to Do to Remake Them_____________________________________Former economic hit man John Perkins has experienced today’s economic collapse before. The banking industry and sub-prime mortgage fiascos, the rising tide of unemployment, and the shuttering of businesses are all too familiar in the Third World countries where he worked. He was both an observer and a perpetrator of events that have now sent the US – in fact the entire planet – spiraling toward disaster.The real cause of our global financial meltdown is what Perkins calls predatory capitalism – the mutant form of an economic system that encourages widespread exploitation of the few to benefit a small number of already very wealthy people. A new geo-politics has emerged; today the CEOs of big corporations, rather than governments, control human and natural resources around the globe, as well as politicians and the media. Their arrogance, gluttony, and mismanagement have brought us to the perilous edge. The solutions will not be “return to normal ones”. Confessions of an Economic Hit ManConfessions of an Economic Hit Man reveals a game that, according to John Perkins, is “as old as Empire” but has taken on new and terrifying dimensions in an era of globalization. And Perkins should know. For many years he worked for an international consulting firm where his main job was to convince LDCs (less developed countries) around the world to accept multibillion-dollar loans for infrastructure projects and to see to it that most of this money ended up at Halliburton, Bechtel, Brown and Root, and other United States engineering and construction companies. This book, which many people warned Perkins not to write, is a blistering attack on a little-known phenomenon that has had dire consequences on both the victimized countries and the U.S.
Yes, I agree. CONFESSIONS OF AN ECONOMIC HIT MAN is extraordinary and should be on everyones list for reading to understand what's going on in the world today.
