The Upcoming War Against Iran: Here Is A Reason Why The US Wants To Invade Iran So Badly!

The push for a war against Iran is still ongoing and the rhetoric seems to be steadily increasing daily.  Right now, the United States has moves thousands of US combat troops into Israel under the guise and lie of having them there for "joint war games" with the Israelis.   It is also a fact that American troops that had been pulled out of Iraq have suddenly been redeployed to elsewhere in the Persian Gulf region in preparations for a major attack against Iran.  It does seem that the war against Iran is coming, and the clock is definitely ticking...

But the excuses for attacking Iran have already been defeated, and many are questioning as to what is the real motive for attacking Iran?   Right now, I want to present an interesting article from the Fars News Agency, through, entitled: "Iran, Russia, Replace Dollar With National Currencies In Trade Exchanges".  What we have here is possibly the real reason why the US is hell bent on attacking Iran, and I will explain it in my own comments to follow:

Iran, Russia Replace Dollar with National Currencies in Trade Exchanges
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran and Russia have replaced US Dollar with their own currencies in their trade ties, a senior Iranian diplomat announced on Saturday.

Speaking to FNA, Tehran's Ambassador to Moscow Seyed Reza Sajjadi said that the proposal for replacing US Dollar with Ruble and Rial was raised by Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in a meeting with his Iranian counterpart Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in Astana on the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) meeting.

"Since then, we have acted on this basis and a part of our interactions is done in Ruble now," Sajjadi stated, adding that many Iranian traders are using Ruble for their trade deals.

"There is a similar interest in the Russian side," the envoy stated, adding that that Moscow is against unilateral sanctions on Iran outside the UN Security Council, specially the recent sanctions against Iran's Central Bank (CBI).

"The move (imposing sanction on the CBI) is unacceptable. Russians have clearly announced that they will not accept these sanctions and Iran's nuclear issue is resolvable just through negotiations."

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad hit back at the US after Washington introduced new sanctions against Iran's central bank.

President Ahmadinejad told an annual meeting of senior central bank officials that Iran's central bank would respond with "force" to the new US sanctions intended to pressure Tehran to abandon its nuclear program.

He said the bank was strong enough to defeat "enemy plans".

The sanctions - which cut off from the US financial system foreign firms that do business with the central bank - are part of a defense bill signed by President Barack Obama earlier this month

The extra US sanctions aim to squeeze Iran's oil sales, most of which are processed by the central bank, although many even in the West believe that the move would prove futile.

During the last two years, Iran has been replacing dollar with other currencies in its trade with the outside world.

Iran has replaced dollar in its oil trade with India, China and Japan. Late in November, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) issued the needed permission to the Central Bank of Iran to open rupee accounts with two Indian banks, namely UCO and IDBI, as a long-lasting solution to the two countries' payment problems.

Both accounts were opened in the respective banks' Mumbai branches.

A top official of city-based UCO Bank said while payments for his country's oil imports would initially be in rupees, it would be then converted into a separate currency, which was yet to be decided by the apex bank. 

NTS Notes: OK, Here it is in a nutshell... Most of the world's Petroleum supplies are traded in US dollars, also known as "Petro-Dollars".  By having the US dollar being the primary exchange for trade in Petroleum, the US dollar has remained artificially buoyant for the last several decades, when rightfully, considering how worthless it really is,  it should have collapsed a long time ago.

Back last year, I put up an article (link: showing how the Iranians were opening an Oil Bourse as a means of trading their Petroleum in Rials, rather than in US dollars, and thus breaking the grip of the US dollar over Iranian oil exports.   This bourse raised warning bells in America, because if nations started open trading of their Petroleum exports in currencies other than US dollars, the US dollars would potentially flood home and cause a US dollar collapse,  and in the ripple effect...a possible total US economic collapse.

It is also a little known fact that one of the primary reasons for the US attacking Iraq back in 2003 is because Saddam Hussein also was opening up an Oil Bourse that would have seen the trade in Iraqi crude oil done in currencies other than US dollars.   That was unacceptable to the maniacs in Washington DC, and the first thing that the US did after taking over Iraq was to close the Iraqi Oil bourse... It seems that even then they absolutely desperate to keep the US dollar as king when it comes to Petroleum trading!

What we have here is a situation that the US government absolutely wants to stop by all means possible.   For their failed economy to somehow still remain buoyant, they must make sure that the world continues to use the US dollar as a means of international trade, especially in Petroleum exports.    They will do anything to save what is left of the collapsing US economy, even if it means war.

As shown in this article, the Iranians have already replaced the US dollar in much of their oil exports with major nations such as India, China, and Japan, and the US will do everything possible to stop the further bleeding of their US dollar influence, even if it means war. 

The desperation of the US to keep its US dollar hegemony over trade in oil, is one of the primary reasons why the war against Iran is most definitely on, and the clock is ticking....

More to come

I would argue that the only reason Canada should remain a country is because it would give us all some portion of the riches of the North. But as we have seen, our government is not controlled by us but largely by the Jewish media. We ourselves won't get those riches anyway, and our ideals of socialist health care and unemployment are being eroded as we speak.

'Ideals' are fine to bind a group of otherwise disparate people together for the financial benefit of a few but in real life why don't we get real and admit that government has, is and always will be the prostitutes of the 5% who control the press and most of the money in the world.

Time and again we have been screwed by 'leading' politicians for their own small financial or egotistic interests. Nothing will change until we get a real vote on the issues. We would be far better off to see people like Harper or Gordon Campbell of BC, or Mulroney coming, and just straight out offer them say 20 million dollars to retire to the Caribbean or anywhere but here.

Look at the FTA or NAFTA or our involvement in foreign by nature wars which the Canadian people rejected by poll but which were approved anyway by our government. We have no political power as voters in this current system of 'representative democracy'. We are the hewers of wood and drawers of water, oil and minerals while other often foreign elements reap the huge financial benefits at the expense of our resources and our ecology.

Which is why I have come around to the Quebec viewpoint: Better to stand alone as your own country than to languish in despair at the edicts of Ottawa. Better to deny media ownership and monopoly to certain Jewish or other FOREIGN groups because they don't represent your interests anyway.

Therefore, it is better to encourage Quebec separation because once they are gone other provinces may follow and at that point people will get interested in politics and demand a vote on issues. Take BC for example: Given actual control over our provincial resources and people resources we could be a hugely successful nation in our own right. (and yes, we could and should sue TEPCO and the Japanese government and anyone else (GE) involved in those outdated reactors which are currently raining ruin on the last best pristine environment in the world.) We would be far richer, far better educated and far healthier under a democratic direct democracy where we had a vote on all the issues which concerned us all and where local jurisdictions had a vote on all the issues which concerned only them. We would make so much more money if resources were controlled here and the best opportunities went to the best BC people and companies by law. Sorry, it would no longer be enough to register a company in BC - it would have to be owned in BC by BCers and hire BCers to get preferential treatment. As much of BC is unceded Indian land they would be offered the best educational and economic rights . Far better them than a nationally owned company in China and what better way to right a historical wrong? That money too, would largely stay at home for the benefit of everyone who lives here. That way the money which is ours would stay right here where it belongs. My fond hope right now is that the vast majority of the people in Greece who hate globalism will overthrow their government and tell the World Bank/IMF and other foreign predatory banks who bought their bonds cheap in the hopes of cashing in on pension funds and social services to go fuck themselves. (Same thing is happening to a lesser extent right here.) Globalism is just another word for world wide colonialism. This time it's colonialism by huge banks and other corporations but a turd by any other name is still a turd.

Why do you think Switzerland does so well? Not a captive country of the European Union, and their system is set up as a direct democracy - if the people don't like a government initiative it takes very little for them to arrange a referendum on that issue. 100,000 names on a national petition will trigger a referendum, so the Swiss government takes care to make laws which benefit the Swiss people. The leader of Switzerland is changed every year expressly to discourage political opportunists from getting in bed with large corporations at the expense of everyone else. Contrast that to Gordon Campbell who twice promised not to sell our provincial railway which was a publicly owned asset to benefit all of BC. And then he sold it for campaign contributions from CN Rail - owned in Texas. Here is a link to an article which if you take the time to read will give you a very good idea of how Swiss government works.

Contrast that to Canada where we are led by the nose by the corporate media and are (except in extremely rare circumstances) given only the choice of one politician (tweedledum) or another (tweedldee) every four years. Small wonder that we are being pillaged at a rate comparable to Latin American countries of yesteryear when the CIA routinely assassinated and otherwise influenced their governments.

We in BC don't even think that we can have an effect on the rest of the world politically, but we would certainly like to control our own little piece of it and let the rest of the chips fall where they may. Any real country will control its banking to keep the banking predators out. And any real country will retain control of its natural resources and, after taking a reasoned and long term look into the future of commodities, decide that parceling them out slowly in an ever rising market (make no mistake, with China and India demanding ever more goods commodity prices will keep spiraling upward, which is why foreign corporations and even countries are buying, bribing and spying their way into ownership of that which should by rights belong to the people who live here) is the best way to maximize profits and our own future at the same time.

I will go to the next election and vote for the lesser perceived evil in the vain hope that it will make more difference than a fart in a windstorm, but I also know that my vote will mean nothing until we in BC become a separate nation. And until we here in BC have a direct democracy to destroy the current government paradigm which was and is designed for the corruption of government in the interests of those who corrupt them we will be no better off. Sorry Canada, but this isn't a democracy. This is 33 million suckers held together by a corrupt media, corrupt laws, and a corrupt government. So yes, if BC wanted to separate and wanted a real democracy by form of direct votes on the issues to curtail the current endemic political corruption both federally and provincially, I would jump at the chance. If we needed extra manpower we should provide direct BC government flights to and from the Maritimes, because they are decent, hard working people. We need to provide jobs for the unemployed and underemployed people of the dream which once was Canada. But Ottawa? Forget it.
