Wars and rumors of wars: Nearly 12% of entire world involved in conflicts

When compared to global conflicts such as World War I and World War II that involved nations from every continent except Antarctica, today's ongoing conflicts appear to be little more than political tantrums stemming from religious or economic disagreements.  Yet since the end of the Cold War, the world has not seen so many countries involved in hot conflicts going all at once, and the nature of these aggre ...

American military vs. American military in Iraq?

When President Bush ordered U.S. forces into Iraq in 2003, trends forecaster Gerald Celente predicted that no matter the outcome, the result would eventually lead to civil war.  Well, it took 11 years from that time for his prognostication to come to pass, but ironically, it is another civil war that is about to take place in the region, and it has nothing to do with the Sunnis, Shiites, or Kurds. It has to ...

Pope declares world is on edge of economic collapse and dependent upon war

While the office of the Pope is one that is supposed to represent the voice of Christ to the over 1.2 billion Catholics around the world, the man who sits in that office is also a head of state in the realm of world governments.  Thus a Pope's words can carry great weight even today, just as they did for 1200 years before the Great Reformation. So when the highly educated Jesuit that is Pope Francis speaks ...

U.S. sanction Fail: Russian’s made billions off of Obama’s gambit

Ahhh chess.  It's a game where masters succeed and the amateurs fail.  And for centuries, those who have mastered the ability to think and plan several moves ahead have always been able to transfer those skills into real life situations and are then able to manipulate those who are limited to just reactionary responses. This has been the case between Russia and the United States over the past year, and in p ...

Russia counters U.S. rhetoric by claiming genocide in Ukraine

In a proxy war, propaganda is a key tool in swaying public and global support towards ones cause.  North Vietnam was a master of this, and by the end of the conflict with the U.S., America was completely disheartened and seen by the world as a lost aggressor. So as Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry play Monday morning QB from the confines of the White House, Russia, which actually has troops st ...

China providing an alternative to Europe for Russian natural gas

Contrary to most government propaganda, nearly all military incursions, as well as global wars, have been waged over the desire to control energy resources.  World War I saw the breakup of the Ottoman Empire, and the colonization of new Arab States to tap into their massive stockpiles of petroleum.  World War II was led by Axis power Japan, who needed to invade and control the Asia to access energy they cou ...

Oppose the war in Ukraine? New E.O. could allow Obama to seize your assets

In the Federal government, lawyers ensure that legislation, laws, or other forms of regulation are written in ways to be both vague and concise, and allow the state to enforce them as they see fit.  One such 'benign' form of law that was passed last week could essentially allow the Obama Administration to seize the assets of any American who disagrees with the government's policies over Ukraine and the ongo ...

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: U.S. wants to get their hands on Ukraine to loot it

On March 12, former Assistance Secretary of the Treasury Dr. Paul Craig Roberts spoke as a guest on USA Watchdog.  During his 50 minute interview, Dr. Roberts addressed America's desperate need to win out over Ukraine, with their ultimate goal being the confiscation of wealth and resources, and not one of freeing the Ukrainian people. “So, why is Ukraine important?  Well, there is the Black Sea naval base t ...

Japanese media escalates war chant as conflict with China to begin in January

As 2013, and the year of the Currency Wars comes to an end, the inevitable escalation for nations who have chosen to go down this path is to eventually engage in hot wars to turn the minds of their people away from their economic problems.  And as China begins to assert themselves all across the globe, both economically and militarily, rhetoric is now coming forth from the Japanese media that an inevitable ...

Obama priorities: Skips paying soldier death benefits while set to pay Treasury bond holders

If there was a true title to place on Barack Obama's Presidency, it would be more than anything, the payment priority President.  When Obama back in 2010 unconstitutionally nationalized General Motors, he bypassed court authority and subjectively prioritized who would get paid first and how much they would receive.  In this radical move of confiscation, proceeds from the reorganization went first to unions, ...

Syria to give up chemical weapons only when Obama stops supporting terorrists

The diplomatic game known as Syria is a power play of global and future importance.  On one side is the reigning superpower, who's dying economic strength on the world stage is forcing them to use military might to push nations to bend to their will.  On the other side is a former and resurrected country that is nearly a polar opposite to America, seeking diplomatic arrangements to settle disputes, while al ...
