There’s extensive talk on the Internet, particularly among alternative media outlets, on the collapse of the US Dollar. Much of this chatter talks not just of its inevitability but of the inevitable chaos and significant risk of conflict and instability during this transition period.
Many believe the collapse of the US Dollar is largely unavoidable and will throw the Western world into war with the Chinese-Russian bloc whose members comprise players such as Syria, Iran and Venezuela. Some state that technically World War III has essentially already begun. I know what you’re thinking ‘holy shit, you can’t be serious‘, ‘that’s just alarmist bullshit‘, ‘there’s no way the Russians and Chinese would align against the US and Western Europe, they need us as much as we need them‘, ‘this is just tin foil brigade fodder not to be taken seriously‘, etc. I can perfectly understand these sentiments and to varying degrees am still on the fence when it comes to the validity and veracity of these claims.
However, I also believe in this age it is essential to assess and analyse information from as many sources as possible to collect an overall picture from which you can draw your own conclusions. Granted alternative media sources often have their own agendas, motives and audiences but this truth is entirely the same for mainstream media outlets. Hence, gather your information widely as information is knowledge and knowledge is power; the power to think, analyse and form conclusions from as many angles as possible, and if needed, install preparedness – either practically or just in a psychological sense – for an events that may or may not occur.
Let’s have a look at the reasonings for these explosive claims that the US Dollar is on its death throes; the West is determined to install its own agenda, currency and Government should it collapse; and that the Russian-Chinese alliance are just as adamant to not see that happen.
StormCloudsGathering is an online collective who create comprehensive and informative analysis of current events – their issues range from the US Collapse and inevitable conflict, geopolitical matters across the world, and philosophical and psychological narratives on a range of topics including authority and the Western school system.
A lot of their content is intense, illustrative and alarmist but their topics are well-researched, being backed up by verified sources; comprehensive and enlightening. Each topic is broken down with extensive reasoning for why the conclusion has been reached with their overall aim being the dissemination of truth stating on their website, ‘The truth is extreme, to make it moderate is to lie’. I know what a lot of you are thinking right now, alarmist bullshit, they’ve got an agenda, they’re fear mongers and disaster peddlers, etc. But, I’d implore you to watch their videos with an open and objective mind and reach your own conclusions.
Below are four videos from their YouTube channel, the first two are in regards to their analysis and reasoning that not only is World War III imminent but that it has already begun, whilst the next video is in regards to the US Government preparations for economic collapse, and the final deals with what will happen if/when the US economy collapses.
No matter what you think of their viewpoints or conclusions, it must be admitted that their videos are comprehensive, well researched, informative and more often than not completely contrary to what we’re told in mainstream media.
I’m going to focus today on their video in regards to World War III, which they believe has already actually begun. Their reasoning for their dire conclusion is that the world is heading straight into a huge paradigm shift of global implications as the US marches even more strongly into securing oil and financial resources along with strategic positions in preparedness for when the US dollar and economy as a whole collapses. And, in doing such thumbing their nose at individual nations’ sovereign rights, UN declarations which they’re signed onto and as such beholden to, and increasingly drawing the ire of global powers Russia and China who are becoming ever more tired of their proxy wars in Syria and by extension, Iran.
The video explains that the elite and by extension US Government, economic and military institutions are aware of the inevitability of the US Dollar collapse and ensuing economic collapse in the US are currently ensuring that they have secured prime resources and strategic installations across the world beforehand. Whilst, when the US Dollar does collapse – they can bring forth their pre-determined plan which is a new global Government along with a new global currency. Essentially having already formulated their own problem – their reaction – and ultimate solution, as outlined in Icke’s problem-reaction-solution theory. The only problem is that Russia and China, and by extension their trading partners and strategic allies including Iran, Syria, Venezuela, Cuba and Brazil; don’t like the idea of an American superpower being replaced by a global Government and currency all directed, run by and enforced by a US-Western Europe power base; and are not going to let this happen without a fight.
As Noam Chomsky states in his 1989 book, Necessary Illusions:
As the authors of children’s tales understand, life is simple when there are heroes to admire and love, and devils to fear and despise.
One goal of a well-crafted propaganda system is to dull the mental faculties, reducing its targets to a level at which they will respond with appropriate enthusiasm to slogans carrying a patriotic message. Accordingly, the cast of characters in international affairs includes heroes, who stand for freedom, democracy, reform, and all good things, and devils, who are violent, totalitarian, and generally repellent. Most of the players are irrelevant, part of the background scenery.
Entry into the two significant categories is determined by contribution to elite interests, or harm caused to them.
In the West, we’ve been indoctrinated from birth to view the world in terms of us vs. them, good (us) vs. bad (them), we vs. other. This serves Governments, militaries and financial institutions as it creates an insider vs. outsider paradigm where the other can be dehumanised or viewed as evil and thus enabling them to be more easily vilified, prosecuted, killed or enslaved. We see this in the rhetoric of the Bushes (Snr. and Jr.) who often spoke of being on ‘God’s side’, attacking the ‘Axis of Evil’ and stating ‘You’re either with us or against us’ – there was no middle ground – it was defined as ‘good vs. ‘bad’. We see this in countless religious wars throughout history continuing to this day, if they’re not one of us they’re immoral, evil, less than us, less than human, and therefore easier to kill. I wonder if these nations, who’ve fallen on the wrong side of the US ledger at one point or another from 1945 to 1999 (not including the ones since!), view themselves as ‘evil’.
Many don’t realise but we are currently already well established in a global currency war behind the scenes, largely ignored by mainstream Western media. Saddam Hussein wouldn’t come to the party and kept rocking the boat, hence the second Iraq War – he was let off after the first Gulf War with the proviso he remained the strongman but followed US objectives, but the tyrant was incorruptible in that regard. Likewise Libya, Gaddafi having come in from the cold and being courted by Western Governments and oil companies wanted to exchange Libyan oil in an alternate currency to the US, the US made sure that didn’t happen. Now, Syria where we’re seeing the same as Assad is not towing the western line and as such a brutal, vicious and nasty civil war ensues with the US ever still keeping its eyes on Iran and ensuring that the troops in the region do not have reason to leave.
But, it goes further than that. The Peshawar High Court in Pakistan has declared CIA operated drone attacks in their country as illegal and a violation of the sovereign rights of the nation of Pakistan, which they certainly are. Meanwhile, Obama has defended drone attacks overseas but perhaps the people of Yemen and numerous countries across Africa including Mali are likewise growing ever more tired of their sovereign rights being violated unlawfully.
I know Russia certainly has, as Medvevev, in the video below, goes as far as saying the use of nuclear weapons is not off the table if attacks on national sovereignty are not halted.
So, as we can see behind the scenes a lot is occurring which is not adequately being covered by Western mainstream media sources. Russia has drawn their line in the sand and it seems to the casual observer, such as myself, that is Iran. If the US continue their strategic drone attacks across West Asia, the Middle East and Africa, and go as far as launching a pre-emptive strike on Iran (or through their ally, Israel), Russia will not take it lying down.
This is not nice news, it is not comforting news, it is not pleasant news. But, it is news that us ordinary individuals in the West should be privy to and provided by our Governments and mainstream media organisations. Russia have grown increasingly wary of US belligerence and the lines in the sand are drawn. The next move depends on the major players, let hope sanity, cool hands and humanity prevails.
