As we slip and slide toward whatever that linguistic stuff the first half of March means, we notice that Greece is also playing the old “slip-and-slide” this morning with yet another (made-up) deadline coming and going.
One aspect of what’s ahead is the public version of events, which is what the passing headlines mean. But the knowledgeable observer knows there’s the other side of the libretto, written at times in invisible ink, but which shows up now and again at the International Swaps and Derivatives Association, so we continue watching their press release postings here. That will determine to some measure whether Greece defaults or simply does a credit restructuring. Who gets stuck for the (free lunch tab) is in play.
While this drags on, the talks are back on, after being off…and if the deadline has passed, seems to be a fair question to ask “What are they talking about?”
Why is it, I get the uncomfortable feeling that the outcome of Europe future will be decided later this month, and in Archduke Ferdinand fashion, will be the event that triggers WW III/IV? Except this time, instead of a person getting shot, it will be an economy…
False Flag Ahead?
Interesting developments in the predictive linguistics over the weekend, now alluding to the possibility of a false-flag attack in the opening days of March being “on.”
We have not been able to confirm it, but seems there’re some reports of moving US military units out of the US and purported issuance of travel passes to the outbound troops which will allow, upon their return for travel to different regions within the US…but as I said, no confirmation. Still…sometimes where there’s smoke….
What makes this such an interesting bit of buzz to be picket up on the net is that there are a series of international events being moved into position which could become the nominal cause for global war, and which could be seen as a way to hide the massive financial scandals yet unresolved – and besides the bankruptcy of Europe, the pending Dollar disaster as our federal budget goes nonlinear, there’s all that disappearing money from the likes of MF Global…
A war, especially a large one, deliberately sewt in arsonist-fashion would be an all-too-convenient way of burying (or vaporizing) the evidence. Think of 9/11 replayed on a global scale. Not a happy thought to begin the week.
Which gets us to how those pieces are being moved around on the board…
Bombing and urban fighting continue in the Syrian city of Homs where rebellion against the Assad government seems centered.
Meantime, Russia, which has an aircraft carrier just off Syria, last we heard, has decried the US/West for being hysterical over their positioning of forces and support for the killer regime in Damascus..
Iran War Drums Beat
Israel has announced a new boss for its air force, and no surprise here: He figures Iran is his top concern.
But more and more pressure is being brought to bear by the conventional press/ MSM, which are running op-ed pieces suggesting things like “A nuclear Iran would put us over a barrel…”
As one of our readers puts it, looking at the other side of things:
“Meantime, there’s a report that Iran has completed material to build a bomb and with that, their missiles could reach the US. ”
No why would that be a problem?
Oh yeah, it would mean Iran would have an effective deterrent against a western invasion.
Can’t let them have that, can we, it would de-rail the west’s invasion plans …
Does anyone really believe that Iran, even if it had nukes, would fire them off?
What would be the benefit to Iran?
It would, for sure, end their oil exports to China…
The whole world situation is looking more and more like a massive spreadsheet with a massive circular reference involving 50+ cells…
After Mitt Romney waxed Newt Gingrich and others in Nevada this weekend, seems like Gingrich hopes of pulling one over on America….I mean making it to the Presidency…ought to be declining. In the collection of national political stories, we’re reading how Newt’s big money raisers may be talking to Romney folks now, how Ron Paul had only 18.7% (Romney scored 50%) in the Nevada showdown.
The New Red Light District
What’s the payback on one of those auto-cop video cameras? Three million bucks of one in the Bay Area…and that’s so far…
More after this:
