Excellent article. My question : If Germany, France are under
control with the USA of the NWO what's the game? Dismantle USA?
China is free from international finance, Japan I think
largely, India undecided. If NWO is facing biggest threat from
China why divide EU from USA and UK.?
Best wishes


Hi Elliot,

Nice to hear from you.

The roles of Germany and France are a bit difficult to fathom.
With the Merkel bid for German Chancellor, for example, we are
probably seeing an attempt at 'regime change' on behalf of the
globalists.  The situation is volatile, and the US. - and Wall
Street - have many ways to pressure and blackmail European
leaders. When we see attempts to create an EU military force
separate from NATO, and attempts to broker a deal with Iran
contrary to Washington's wishes, we see evidence that part of
the EU picture involves seeking independence from
Anglo-American domination. As regards free trade and
neoliberalism, it is possible that European leaders believe
they need to follow that path in order to effectively compete
economically with the U.S.-Anglo alliance.

China may be strong in in its financial resources, but its
economy depends on massive exports, and it must import massive
quantities of fuel, food, and other commodities. China could,
theoretically, dump some of its dollar reserves and collapse
the American economy, but then it would lose its biggest
customer: mutually assured collapse acts as a deterrent to
outright financial warfare.

Uncle Sam is the big bully on the block, but everyone has to
deal with him in order to keep the global economy ticking
over. At the same time, the other players seem to be seeking
ways to combine together, in various ways, to counter the
bully. In response to global financial pressures, they are
also being pushed into collaborative ventures for their mutual
benefit. The emerging alliance between
Russia-China-Iran-India-Brazil-Venzuela is formidable from
an anti-bully perspective, and also from a mutual-benefit
perspective. They are working together in the face of a common
adversary, and the natural spirit of comradery that arises
leads to an atmosphere of voluntary and fair cooperation.

As such world leaders try to work within the current system,
while they simultaneously are seeking to undermine it, we are
bound to notice inconsistencies and reversals in their
day-to-day policies. Like a boxer, they must roll with the
punches, and pick their shots. It seems that what they need to
do, if they want to hope for stability outside the U.S.-Anglo
axis, is to establish their own 'alternate 'global economy'
while the current one continues.

This might mean, for example, that China, with its large
financial reserves, would need to be prepared to act as the
'alternate IMF', providing investment funds within the
'alternate zone', on mutually beneficial terms. Iran, Russia,
and Venezuela would be the core of an 'alternate OPEC',
supplying the zone's energy needs, at reasonable prices, or in
barter for needed commodities, technologies, or assistance. To
the extent this alternate zone begins to take shape, the
synergy between that and the EU grows ever greater. The Euro
would provide a suitable currency in place of the dollar,
particularly for petroleum transactions - freeing everyone
from the the petrodollar - and mainland Europe would benefit
from the alternate oil market.

We need to keep in mind that if such an alternate zone went on
line, it would not necessarily mean that a state of open
hostility or confrontation would exist between the two global
economies. The Brits and Americans can't use all the oil they
can produce, and they will still be willing to sell it to all
comers, most likely at a reduced price given the new competing
oil market. We might have a multi-power world, but hopefully
without the Cold War hostile polarization.

Before a decisive move could be made, such as the
establishment of a Euro-based oil market, or any wholesale
dumping of dollar assets by China, the entire alternate
infrastructure must be in place, including lines of supply,
tanker fleets, comprehensive agreements, and adequate
mechanisms of mutual self defense against intervention.

We might note that the priority targets of the PNAC campaign
are aimed at preventing the formation of such an alternate
infrastructure. Iraq had begun selling oil for Euros, and
Germany and Russia had invested in oil deals with the Saddam
regime. Those developments were reversed by the occupiers.

Iran is in a similar position today: an important piece of a
potential alternate infrastructure, and also the
well-signalled next target of PNAC expansion plans. Venezuela,
another important oil exporter, and also enthusiastically in
alignment with the vision of an alternate global economy, has
also clearly been in the sights of Washington interventionist
thinking. One CIA-sponsored coup attempt failed, and
Washington frequently berates Chavez for his 'unfriendly'
policies. U.S. troop buildups have also been reported, e.g.,
in Paraguay.

The alternate infrastructure could go ahead without Iran, but
if Iran can be included it would be that much stronger. In
that sense Iran does not necessarily represent an ultimate
confrontation between the blocks, but is more a border-dispute
skirmish. But border disputes do sometimes lead to full-on
confrontation, if both sides see the dispute as being
strategically critical. We can be sure Washington does see
Iran as being strategically critical: to back off now would
send a signal that a new infrastructure will not be prevented
by force.

It is more difficult to tell how Russia and China view the
skirmish. They may be content to let the Iranians exact a fair
price by sinking a few U.S. carriers, blocking shipping in the
Gulf, and raining missiles on Israeli cities, while they
continue establishing the rest of their infrastructure. Or
they might feel that Iran is the place to draw the line, to
take a stand, against Washington's illegal campaign of
