The War at the End of the Dollar ~ link ~ The history of the U.S. dollar is closely linked to U.S. involvement in a series of wars. The Bretton Woods Accord and the resulting world reserve currency status of the U.S. dollar were both byproducts of World War II (1939-1945). The Korean War (1950-1953) was followed six years later by the Vietnam War (1959-1975) which led to the end of the Bretton Woods system. Unfettered by the constraint of gold backing after 1971, the U.S. dollar became a weapon in the Cold War (1945-1991) between the U.S. and the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (U.S.S.R.). Each war corresponded with an increase in the U.S. money supply. The Gulf War (1990-1991) was followed by wars in Afghanistan, beginning in 2001, and in Iraq, beginning in 2003, and, simultaneously, by the U.S.-led War on Terror that began in 2001. Like the wars that came before them, the recent staccato of U.S. wars is correlated with increases in the U.S. money supply. The Iraq war, for example, is estimated to have cost as much as $4 trillion.

The loss of value in the U.S. dollar caused by excessive expansion of the money supply, together with rising demand for raw materials from emerging economies, has led to permanently higher global commodity prices. Higher crude oil prices, in particular, have put pressure on the U.S. economy, which is putatively in a gradual recovery from the recession that began in 2007. At the same time, international trade has begun to move away from the U.S. dollar, threatening its world reserve currency status. Given the history of the U.S. dollar, it seems likely that an eventual end of the U.S. dollar's reign as the world reserve currency will be marked by war.

Iranian Negotiator: Iran and World Powers to Wrap Up Talks on Saturday ~ link ~ "The talks will be held in one day and will not continue for a second day," Baqeri told reporters in Istanbul Friday evening and after meeting the head of the Russian delegation to the talks Sergey Ryabkov at Iran's consulate office.

During the first meeting, Chinese Assistant Minister of Foreign Affairs and head of Beijing's delegation to the Istanbul talks Ma Zhaoxu underlined the necessity for a lesser hostile attitude by the West towards Iran. 
The Chinese official also presented some offers on how to move forward, and noted, "The first round of talks should focus on determining the general principles and objectives of the talks in a bid to guarantee a calm start for the trend of the negotiations."

Baqeri, for his part, said that Iran has entered the talks with new initiatives and with a constructive attitude.

Also, Head of the Russian delegation Sergey Ryabkov told reporters before his meeting with Baqeri that there is no shred of evidence to indicate that Iran is running a military nuclear activity. 

Iran Nuclear Talks ~ link ~ On April 14 and 15, Istanbul will host so-called P5+1 countries. They include the five permanent Security Council members - America, Russia, China, Britain, and France - plus Germany. According to Iran's chief nuclear negotiator, Saeed Jalili, Baghdad will host more talks at a mutually agreed on date.

Why Iran? The issue's a red herring. The real one's regime change. Pretexts are used to pursue it. If not one, then another. If none exist, they're invented. Washington wants Tehran's government replaced by a pro-Western one.

Calm Before Greater Storm in Syria ~ link ~ Previous articles stressed Washington's longstanding regime change plans in Syria. Independent sovereign states aren't tolerated.  Replacing them with pro-Western ones is policy. All means are used. They include punishing sanctions, color revolutions, violent coups, subversion, cyberwar, targeted assassinations, armed insurgencies, and war if other methods failed.

So far, Syria and Iran withstood hostile Washington assaults. At issue is what's next? On April 12, Syria was largely calm. Both sides halted hostilities. For how long? Calm and stability defeat Washington's agenda. Advancing it depends on violence blamed on Assad. Expect lull conditions to be temporary.

US conspires with Turkey over militarized buffer zone following Syrian ceasefire ~ link ~ Syria will NOT allow US/Turkey/NATO/Israel/GCC to establish a so-called "buffer zone" within its boundaries.   Any attempt to do so will begin a General Middle East Regional War which will begin World War III, which in turn will begin Armageddon!!!  Stirling

Debt Crisis Plotted to Deliver the Euro to the IMF ~ link ~ Good One...take the time to read it all at the link if you can.  Stirling    

We've long since come to the conclusion that the EU's sovereign crisis is a manufactured one. This article supports such a conclusion, in our view.

One has to keep in mind the artificiality of the current economic construct. The economy of the world is run via monopoly fiat/paper money printed by central banks. It is this system that has seemingly crashed half of the world's economy and is well on the way to delivering China into the same situation.

If China's economy folds – and it seems well on the way – there will likely be a global depression. The elites, in our view, are preparing to offer up the International Monetary Funds' SDRs as an alternate currency. The IMF is increasingly active as the "lender of last resort" throughout the world (see article excerpt above).

Troika gives green light to Greek election ~ link ~ The Global Banking Cartel intends to continue to screw the Greek people after the election.   Stirling  

On Wednesday, Prime Minister Lucas Papademos named May 6 as the date for Greece’s long-awaited general election. As was the case with the appointment of the non-elected banker as the head of government, the date for the Greek election was also decided by the representatives of international high finance.

Papademos, a former head of the Greek central bank and vice-president of the European Central Bank, was selected by European leaders and the International Monetary Fund last November to replace the incumbent prime minister George Papandreou, of the social-democratic party PASOK, who had called for a popular referendum on the austerity measures demanded by the troika.

What has America become? ~ link ~ A sad shadow of its former self!   Stirling   

(NaturalNews) It seems that America has become the land of the special interest and the home of the double standard. If we lie to Congress it's a felony, but if Congress lies to us it's just politics; if we dislike a black person we're racist, but if a black person dislikes us it's their 1st Amendment right; the government spends millions to rehabilitate criminals, but the do almost nothing for the victims; in public schools you can teach that homosexuality is OK, but you better not use the word God in the process; you can kill an unborn child, but it's wrong to execute a mass murderer; we don't burn books in America, we simply rewrite them; we got rid of the communist and socialist threat by renaming them progressives; we are unable to close our border to Mexico, but have no problem protecting the 38th parallel in Korea; if you protest President Obama's policies you are a terrorist, but if you burned an American flag or George Bush in effigy it is your 1st Amendment right.

You can have pornography on TV or the internet, but you better not put a nativity scene in a public park during Christmas; we have eliminated all criminals in America, but now we call them sick people; we can use a human fetus for medical research, but it's wrong to use an animal.
