Forum Post: Oil wars - The stakes are higher than just Iran

As the dollar -and the rest of the fiat currencies- are losing their value due to money printing, we are approaching a point where the world will simply reject them, and the West will not be able to have oil - at least not at "reasonable" prices by today's standards.

This is why the USA "must" attack all the oil states who try to break free from the dollar, and start accepting other means of payment - because no mater how much it costs them to go to war, it will cost them a lot more if the world finally gets of the "dollar standard", and the value of the dollar goes to almost zero.

The main thing that prevents the oil states from rejecting the dollar right now is their fear of being attacked by the USA - if that fear goes away, then they will be free to choose what currency to accept as means of payment. [...]

Iran is being played on a multitude of levels including military-industrial, resource-strategic and corporate financial.

It sound interesting. But ultimately I hope your just fishing because misinformation like that keeps people from debating things that actually matter. War has to do with power. Power gives credibility to currency true. But we would actually benefit from BRICS reaching their goal of offering a counter weight to the dollar because it would help to level off the extreme ups and downs we have now. The falls and leaps are caused by the automated software they use for trading these days. The markets follow their algorithm so well that they have to reset every now and then because the script has been know to suddenly drop the DOW by 1,000 points at times. They actually closed the markets for this once lol, emergency stop. I think it was in 2008. Anyway, a counter currency would spread the investors in a way that would slow the shocks, providing they also use different algorithms in their markets.

Your so full of shit your pathetic. The OP is correct the US Government engineers oil wars to any country that refuses to accept US dollars for their oil.

The USA can print dollars for free, and thus today the US dollar is mistrusted by the world, and country's with REAL ASSETS like Oil Country's want Gold for their OIL, of course the USA has no gold, only nukes and soldiers, so the USA uses what it has to steal oil.

The BRIC's are irrelevant if not DOA. What matters today is the Euro, and Chinese Yuan (RMB), but mostly what matters is gold.

The USA position is to Steal all the worlds oil before the US dollar collapses and then sell that OIL for Gold which will keep the US government in POWER.

The problem however is the World, and that includes all of Asia and most of Europe is sick and tired of the USA running the world, so when USA starts WWIII and OBAMA will this year, our allies will be few indeed.

It must be exciting to view the world through Hollywood tinted glasses.

The OP was 100% correct in his analysis, and your critique was obtuse disinformation which is your standard means of propaganda.

There is ONLY one WAR on the face of the earth and that war is how commodity's are traded, via the COMEX the US holds a NUKE-GUN to the world's head and forces all commodity's ( pigs, oil, gold, rubber, rice, wheat ) ... to be traded in US dollars. The reason for this is the USA can print dollars for free, and then get the world to supply them commodity's. This makes the world a slave-colony the USA the biggest PONZI scheme on the planet.

When will this shit end? The entire world simply cannot wait any longer to see the USA go down.

Obama came from Chicago to DC to save the COMEX and the USA, by putting a black face on the Presidency, its easier to send people of color to die in Oil Wars, the Obama-Oreo has NO other purpose. Most likely by the time Romey is president, Obama will already have us deep into WWIII.

Once we invade Iran, the Russians and Chinese will NOT stand by and see their primary oil source destroyed by USA greed.

Really? So that must be why we invaded panama, or sent troops to somolia, you are a loud mouth bitch that mistakes anger for fact. Don't let that illuminated screen make you too brave or have you thinking you know something. First I suggest you pick up a history book, then I suggest you figure out how finance works you racist piece of shit.

In both cases of Panama & Somalia, those were cases where our 'puppet governments' went bad, and we had to go in and 'clean house'.

Panama is on of the most strategic places on earth and same for Somalia ( Horn of Africa ),... its imperative that the SYSTEM of Sauron control both locations with their puppet dictatorships, but like the Shah of Iran, or Saddam whom the CIA created, or Somosa in Nicaragua, ... frequently our ASSHOLES go bad, aka leave the CIA reservation, and that's when we kill them.

Man I'm about as anti-war as it gets. But. I do believe you just proved my point. A lot of the mess we are cleaning up now, is left-overs from the cold war.
