If the orientation contained in Biden’s war address to the nation on Thursday, 10/18/23, is not altered, we could be entering into WWIII soon. In that address, Biden linked Russia, China, and Iran to Hamas, as enemies of “Democracy.” That increased military aid to Ukraine and Israel is required because they are the front lines in the fight for “freedom.” In this, the Biden regime is also indicating their preference for using these wars to rally the uniparty against MAGA, as well as trying to make Biden a “war-time” President, using those powers to attempt to determine the outcome of the 2024 election. While there are claims that Iran helped plan the raid on Israel, no evidence for that has come forward. The U.S. has multiple aircraft carrier groups in the area, and the question is, who is the U.S. going to bomb? Hezbollah? Hezbollah and Iran? Hezbollah, Iran, and Syria? Hezbollah, Iran, Syria, and Turkey? Iran’s oil facilities and infrastructure? If you need a war to keep Biden in power, who do you bomb? Once the bombing stage is reached, it will be hard to prevent an ensuing regional religious war from going global.
So, why is this happening and how does this all work? Why do we have permanent wars and unresolvable conflicts all over the world? Many offer the Military Industrial Complex explanation as to why. That explanation only explains the means and the motives of those profiteering from the arms industry and the wars. The actual reasons are much more strategic.
Simply put, it is the “endless wars” and the threat of their escalation, up to and including the threat of nuclear war, which is what is used to keep nations from collaborating in their own interest against the looting of humanity by an international oligarchy. To help make some sense of this, what follows is a brief look at some of the strategic concepts and history of the Middle East.
I – Nationalism and Kemal Ataturk: As the colonialist powers, led by France and the U.K., with Greece as a primary proxy, supported by the U.S., tried to carve up Turkey into spheres of influence in the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, they encountered resistance in the four-year war, 1919-1924, from Turkish nationalists led by General Mustafa Kemal Pasha, later named Ataturk (father of Turkey.) The allied colonial powers were defeated, and in subsequently outlawing the Caliphate system of the Ottomans, “Islamic government by the community of the faithful,” Ataturk uniquely created the first modern secular republic in the Islamic world. Mandatory free education was begun, women received the right to vote, and Turkey began to become a modern industrially developing nation.
The threat of the spread of secular nationalism in the Islamic world started by Ataturk prompted British Intelligence to create the Muslim Brotherhood, in 1928, with their agent, Hassan Al Banna. The Muslim Brotherhood was created as an anti-nation, pan-Sunni Islamic movement with the goal of restoring, for the Muslim world, the very Caliphate under Sharia law, which Ataturk had made illegal in Turkey. Throughout its history, the Muslim Brotherhood has been supported by British Intelligence and more recently the Obama administration in the Arab Spring. Hamas is an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood, and in its earlier period was nurtured by factions in Israel to split the Palestinians between the secular PLO and the pro-Muslim Brotherhood, Islam by terror, Hamas. This is something many in Israel are now having grave misgivings about.
Hamas emerged from Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood exiles in Gaza, after Egypt banned the Muslim Brotherhood, and became an official organization in 1988. The Israeli Military Governor of Gaza during the 1990s, Brigadier General Yitzhak Segev, told The New York Times that while governor he regularly distributed funds to Hamas to help them grow.
Among the Jewish settlers in Palestine, there is also a secular Israeli nationalist movement. It came close to establishing a two-state solution to the conflict in the implementation of the Oslo accords under Yitzhak Rabin as Prime Minister, till he was assassinated. On the recent anniversary of Rabin’s assassination in 1995, Merav Michaeli, the leader of the Israeli Labor Party, has stated that Benjamin Netanyahu was complicit in Rabin’s assassination. So why do we have such an effort to sabotage the two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in both the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, and in the politics of Israeli factions. Who benefits? Let’s look at an example of who benefits from permanent conflict.
II – The 1973 Arab-Israeli War, the Oil Embargo, and the Beginnings of the Petrodollar Globalist System: Following the defeat of the Arabs in the 1973 Arab-Israeli war, Arab nations led by Saudi Arabia began an oil embargo against the major oil-consuming nations to put pressure on getting an Arab-Israeli solution. The U.S. backed the Israelis, and the subsequent oil embargo raised the price of oil, at the same time the dollar was no longer connected to gold in a fixed exchange system. With the increase in oil prices, and with many nations not able, in the “floating exchange system,” to buy oil, except with dollars, and with the globalists’ financial speculation targeting local currencies, massive wealth had to be transferred to obtain the dollars, at unfair exchanges, to buy oil. This was the beginning of the petrodollar system that still exists as the financial core of the globalist system and the growth of the financial debt slavery of most of the world. This is how the globalist oligarchy has used a permanent unresolvable conflict to the detriment of nations. The other aspect of this is that at any time, a war could break out in the Middle East which could economically disrupt most of the world economy. This is the ultimate global blackmail in the hands of those who control and manipulate the triggers for war. This petrodollar looting system of the world made economic development very difficult for most of the world and contributed greatly to the deindustrialization of the U.S.
III – Efforts at Middle East Peace Versus Permanent Conflict: In 1976, an American citizen, Lyndon LaRouche, proposed that the Arab oil dollar surplus, which was accumulating from the increase in the oil price, be used for the economic development of the Middle East and the poorer nations of the world through an international development bank for that purpose. The development projects involved in this would also become the export engine for the U.S. and other developed nations, as well as generating peaceful relations among nations. The Italian and German government representatives meeting with LaRouche were very interested in this. When a meeting between Mr. LaRouche and French President Giscard D’Estaing was about to occur, Henry Kissinger personally intervened as U.S. Secretary of State to stop the meeting. This policy of recycling petrodollars into economic development would have totally transformed the world economy, rather than these dollars being used for predatory purposes such as the asset stripping of U.S. industries and destroying nations through currency speculation.
Around the same time, in 1975, at the Kyoto Conference of the Trilateral Commission, its head, Zbigniew Brzezinski, proposed the use of state-sponsored terrorism under a religious cover for winning the cold war and punishing any attempts at economic independence by nations seeking to develop. Following that, the core of the emerging vast Islamic terrorist apparatus was built up through the Afghan war against the Soviet Union and later the Chechen wars against Russia. The Muslim Brotherhood was enlisted for this purpose, as were the Saudis. Then after the invasion of Iraq in 2003, Islamic terrorist recruitment was furthered by the subsequent societal disintegration and chaos within Iraq that followed. It was out of this breakdown of civil society in Iraq that ISIS was formed, as well as the Iranian-backed Shia militias. The second effort at a Palestinian-Israeli two-state solution began in the later George Bush administration and continued into the Clinton administration in what became the Oslo Accords (1993-1995). The primary incentive for bringing the Palestinians and the Israelis together were the joint economic development protocols in the Oslo agreement. However, the International Monetary Fund sabotaged the implementation of those protocols, which was followed by the previously mentioned assassination of Rabin in 1995 and his replacement with Benjamin Netanyahu. This failure at peace was followed by a radically different policy toward the Middle East, which many have labeled the “clean break.”
IV – The Clean Break and State-Sponsored Terrorism: In 1996, following the collapse of the Oslo Accords, the pro-endless war neocons in the U.S. began to formulate a policy of breaking up the Middle East and destroying the nations of Iraq, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Iran and replacing them with puppet governments and regional warlords. This policy of permanent conflict was originally called the “clean break,” meaning a break with the policy of peace and an end to any effort to create a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian situation.
Out of this “clean break” policy came state-sponsored terrorism to further religious, political, and territorial agendas. From the Muslim Brotherhood and its spin-offs emerged a global terror network. From Saudi Arabia came “Salafist” Wahabi terrorists. From Turkey came other Islamic terror networks. From the British, Israel, and the U.S. came support for Kurdish separatists using terror to break up Turkey, Iraq, Syria, and Iran. From Iran came Hezbollah and the Shia militias. From Obama came ISIS to turn Syria and Iraq into the terrorist capital of a murderous global Caliphate. Allied with Iran were the Houthis in Yemen in a war with the Saudis that is just ending. This whole process includes 9/11, the Patriot Act, and the three trillion dollars of U.S. taxpayer funds spent on the Iraq war. Donald Trump campaigned for President in 2016 to end all this and won. During Trump’s term, the use of state-sponsored terrorism rapidly declined. Now with Biden, it is all coming back, and it must be stopped.
V – Donald Trump and the Abrahamic Accords: Once in office, whether you like him or hate him, Donald Trump moved quickly to change everything in the Middle East. Trump organized the Saudis to bring together 55 nations with Muslim majorities to meet with him on March 21st, 2017, in Riyadh. These are excerpts from that speech: “America is a sovereign nation, and our first priority is always the safety and security of our citizens. We are not here to lecture—we are not here to tell other people how to live, what to do, who to be, or how to worship. Instead, we are here to offer partnership—based on shared interests and values—to pursue a better future for us all. The Middle East is rich with natural beauty, vibrant cultures, and massive amounts of historic treasures. It should increasingly become one of the great global centers of commerce and opportunity. This region should not be a place from which refugees flee but to which newcomers flock. … The entire region is at the center of the key shipping lanes of the Suez Canal, the Red Sea, and the Straits of Hormuz. The potential of this region has never been greater. 65 percent of its population is under the age of 30. Like all young men and women, they seek great futures to build, great national projects to join, and a place for their families to call home. But this untapped potential, this tremendous cause for optimism, is held at bay by bloodshed and terror.” Following this, Trump spent his entire period in office organizing for peace in the Middle East, using his son-in-law Jared Kushner as his emissary because all of Washington, D.C. was against peace, preferring permanent war instead. Trump did this by drawing upon the best of Islam, Christianity, and Judaism historically, using the concept of their common descent from the Prophet Abraham as the metaphor for this process. To date, the following nations have joined the accords: Israel, Bahrain, U.A.E., Sudan, Morocco. The Abrahamic Accords led to recognition of Israel by these nations and the promotion of economic development projects. But most important, a process of genuine dialogue emerged between warring parties based on mutual interest that began to undercut the hatreds perpetrated by war, terrorism, atrocities, and counter-atrocities. At the point of the Hamas raid, the Saudis were negotiating to recognize Israel and officially become part of the Abrahamic Accords. While we are on the verge of WWIII, we are also on the verge of the rebirth of human civilization against the inhuman barbarism of the globalists if we can get past the Middle East WWIII threat. If we do, we all will have a future.
Letter From the Editor – This article encapsulates a lot of history, and we believe the root cause is the globalist Zionist and this needs to be exposed and anyone who is paid by them needs to be exposed.
