WASHINGTON, DC — Now that we have chosen a commander for our upcoming war, let's look at how we have come to this. As always, to understand the future, one has to look at the past.
Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, July 22, 1944 — 730 delegates from 44 allied countries on World War II signed the Bretton Woods agreement, while also creating the International Monetary Fund and established the U.S. dollar as a global reserve currency.
This system meant that one troy ounce of gold will cost 35 U.S. dollars, and that the U.S. will exchange notes on this course the Federal Reserve to other countries, though at that time the country abandoned the gold standard for almost 12 years now. Other countries have pegged their currencies to the dollar, thus fixing the exchange rate for the Member States.
The Federal Reserve quickly amassed huge stocks come from all over the world gold in exchange for paper currency, which other countries held in reserve for use in international transactions, and which, unlike gold, earned on U.S. financial markets interest.
Washington, August 15, 1971 — Due to military spending during the Vietnam War (exceeded $ 500 billion), many countries have realized that the Federal Reserve is printing money in excess of the amount that the U.S. could buy in exchange for being in his possession physical gold, which was only $ 30 billion. President Johnson began his program of "Great Society" by declaring war on poverty and adding to the beneficiaries' benefit another 4 million people, at the same time refusing to raise taxes.
All threaten to devalue the currency. In 1970 gold dollar coverage by the U.S. government has dropped from 55 to 22 percent. The volume of U.S. money in 1971 grew by 10 percent, which prompted Germany and Switzerland to get out of the Bretton Woods agreement, rather than devalue their currencies in order to support the dollar.
Other countries have started to return to Treasury bills, demanding in exchange for their gold. After France reclaim gold for more than $ 190 million, and another $ 50 million took Switzerland, President Nixon gave the "Nixon Shock" by unilaterally breaking the Bretton Woods agreement. The fact that this happens, not even the State Department warned. Now the dollar has become a floating currency and the value of that currency relative to other currencies began to plummet.
Washington, 1973 — promised military protection of oil fields in exchange for cooperation, President Nixon urged Saudi Arabia to sell oil to foreign countries only for U.S. dollars. This has caused a surge in demand for the dollar. Other countries now had no choice but to export the necessary U.S. goods and services to pay for them printed money out of thin air. Then the currency collected all oil-rich countries in OPEC, and became known as the petrodollar.
It was the biggest scam in history. We had only raskochegarivat press, and get all the desired goods and services, because customers had no choice if they wanted to retain the ability to continue to purchase oil. U.S. was the richest country in the world for nearly a hundred years, and the most powerful and influential for 30 years and this situation seemed to cement the dollar at the center of international finance, while its price fell rapidly in relation to the main European currencies.
Standard of living for those who received the status of the immediate benefits soared, and they quickly amassed large fortunes. They went higher, both in terms of political, and in terms of financial strength.
Iraq, in 1991 — in an effort to protect Kuwait from aggression, the United States invaded Iraq. The war was over one hundred hours after the first shot, and the Iraqi army had been destroyed. We have destroyed Iraq's hospitals, its water treatment plants, bridges and other infrastructure necessary for life.
On all the time, the Clinton administration continued to be in power, paralyzing sanctions on Iraq have created a decade of death. One million civilians died from starvation, disease, and lack of health care. Five hundred thousand children died in the time of troubles, about which Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, later said that "it was worth it." Cost of what?
Iraq, November, 2000 — After a decade of death, Iraq announced that it would not be better to sell its oil for U.S. dollars, but only for the euro. That attacks on the dollar did not suffer, because it led to a decrease in profits, received the U.S. as a mediator.
Using the power of the media, the U.S. government can easily convince the American people that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, and that he gives shelter to al-Qaeda.
Iraq, March 20, 2003 — U.S. to invade Iraq. The result were five thousand dead American soldiers, 37,000 dead Iraqi military (civilian deaths has added thousands more), no weapons of mass destruction and no al-Qaida. Once control has been achieved, the trade of oil immediately switched back to dollars, despite the fact that due to the strengthening euro Iraq had received 20 percent of the profits. The occupation of Iraq lasted nearly nine years.
Washington, March 2, 2007 — Former Supreme Allied Commander General Wesley Clark, in a television interview, repeating held in 20 days of September 2001, with another general conversation, said:
"I just got a note today from the office of the Secretariat of the Ministry of Defence. The document sets out how the five years we seize seven countries. " "Let's start with Iraq, then Syria and Lebanon. Then Libya, Somalia and Sudan. Iran will end. "
Libya, in February 2011 — Muammar Gaddafi organizes a group of North African countries to create a gold-currency called Dinar. The intended purpose of this currency? Get rid of dependence on the dollar and the euro, to the participating countries for this plan in exchange for their goods and resources only gold dinars.
U.S. and NATO forces rained down on Libya airstrikes allowed Gaddafi's brutal murder, and immediately established a central bank like the Federal Reserve, which, of course, has to deal only with dollars.
Iran, in February 2012 — the governor of the Central Bank of Iran Mahmoud Bahmani announced that as payment for oil will begin to take the gold. For some time, Iran is actively trying to get away from the dollar, which resulted in a ten-year "minor" penalties. This statement was preceded by an immediate and powerful illumination of the nuclear threat of Iran in the media. Followed by a crippling sanctions that have a clear goal to crush Iran's economy.
According to Mitt Romney in the recent debate on foreign policy in the presidential campaign, do not attack anyone since 1798, the country has suddenly become the greatest threat to the national security of the United States.
I believe that President Obama believed in every word during the 2008 presidential campaign. He talked about hope and change, about transparency in government, reducing debt, and perhaps his every word was genuine. He was a young idealist senator with very little experience "outside the classroom."
I think he knew who actually head when he took his seat.
And those who say our president, and what to do, will not allow the dollar to fall. Even if only one country be allowed to take over oil only dollars, it is no longer the world's reserve currency and crumble into dust. So how many lives it cost? China, Russia and Syria are staunch allies of Iran, and will not stand by as their main source of disappearing oil.
We need to take the medicine for decades excesses that were given mega. They, of course, would be fine, but you and I … We'll have to pay all that we have, including many of our lives.
