Which Country Will the U.S. Invade Next?

Disturbingly insightful article in TruthDig about the role of big banking and the dollar in U.S. foreign policy. The author concludes that what makes certain Middle Eastern countries ripe for U.S. invasion/toppling is not human rights violations, dictatorship, state-sponsored terrorism, WMDs, or just oil, but an economic decision to move away from the dollar as hard currency toward other currencies like the euro or dinar. Saddam Hussein did it. So did Gadhafi. Then Syria. Now Iran. Last week, Iran made the decision, so not surprisingly, the engines of U.S. propaganda are revving up for war.

Many of you know about Gen. Wesley Clark’s famous quote about seven countries in five years…. “We’re going to take down seven countries in five years. We’re going to start with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, then Libya, Somalia, Sudan. We’re going to come back and get Iran in five years.”…

“What do these seven countries have in common? … [N]one of them is listed among the 56 member banks of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS). That evidently puts them outside the long regulatory arm of the central bankers’ central bank in Switzerland. The most renegade of the lot could be Libya and Iraq, the two that have actually been attacked.”…

In fact, on Jan. 4, it was reported that Pakistan was ditching the dollar in its trade with China, and that same day, the U.S. placed it on the watch list for religious freedom violations. The same day? Are we really supposed to believe that it just so happened that Pakistan stopped using the dollar with China on the same day it started punching Christians in the nose for no good reason? No, clearly Pakistan had violated our religion of cold hard cash.

This leaves only one question: Who will be next on the list of U.S. illegal invasions cloaked in bullshit justifications? Well, last week, Iran finally did it: It switched from the dollar to the euro. And sure enough, this week, the U.S. military-industrial complex, the corporate media and Israel all got together to claim that Iran is lying about its nuclear weapons development. What are the odds that this news would break within days of Iran dropping the dollar? What. Are. The. Odds?…

Point is, as we watch our pathetic corporate media continue their manufacturing of consent for war with Iran, don’t fall for it. These wars are all about the banking. And millions of innocent people are killed in them. Millions more have their lives destroyed.
