“If we follow the money [behind the saber-rattling of the US and Israel in threatening a war with Iran], it turns out that Iran is already starting to trade their oil for gold, rather than dollars. With India, China and Russia lining up to do the same thing.
“Well, that would seriously undermine the US dollar, since it’s propped up only by confidence and military power – not by any commodities or strength in the international market.
“So, if we look back at history, we find that Saddam Hussein had also talkedabout selling his oil for Euros, rather than dollars — and it was shortly after that, that he was invaded…
“This propaganda around Iran sounds eerily similar to what happened in Iraq. What I often do is look through the lens of “Problem-Reaction-Solution.” It’s also called the “Shock Doctrine” or the “strategy of tension” but basically, it’s a technique to create a problem and bring in a solution that would otherwise be unacceptable to the the people. So, in this situation, the problem is the idea that “Iran’s going to be too dangerous with a nuclear bomb”…and now, just recently, Obama has come out with a second type of problem which he’s identified, which is the “Threat of Iran undermining the international community in its global economic policy.
“Now what he’s referring to, a little more blatantly is [Iran’s tactic of selling petroleum] for gold, rather than dollars. So – this is “the problem” – we’re being set-up again.
“So, often times, when there’s a problem, there’s a false-flag operation attached to it — like there was in the Gulf of Tonkin, 9/11 – and many other incidences…but what I want to encourage people to look for, which is something like the USS Enterprise – a big but old aircraft carrier, which has been moved to the Straits of Hormuz – it’s scheduled for decommission next year, so it could be very convenient it if were attacked and sunk. It has three nuclear reactors on it, so the waste would go there, they’d avoid the $billion + costs associated with decommissioning it and use it as an excuse to get into a war with Iran.
“So, what’s the ‘Reaction’ they’re looking for? Fear among Americans that oil prices are going to rise or that our friends in Israel are going to be attacked.
“An what’s the ‘Solution’ they’re looking for? I think it’s the justification to invade Iran [and their] undermining the sale of oil for dollars, prop-up the dollar a little bit longer and justify the taking over of [Iran’s] oil and trade routes.
“So, what can we do, as individuals? I suggest that you continue to *translate*, as effectively as you can, any news you’re listening to into what you think is really true.”
