This Monetary War

Wednesday, March 19th, 2003 · No Comments

Despite forged Iraq documents (thanks, Dave, for the link) and failed diplomacy, our monetarily-driven war has begun (imminent threat my ass). Want proof? How about this?

“The core driver for toppling Saddam is actually the euro currency,” according to W. Clark of the Independent Media Center. Here’s his research, something the popular media and Bush himself don’t often do:

The Real Reasons for the Upcoming War in Iraq: A Macroeconomic and Geostrategic Analysis of the Unspoken Truth, by W. Clark, 1/26/03

Here’s another snippet:

    The Real Reason for this upcoming war is this administration’s goal of preventing further OPEC momentum towards the euro as an oil transaction currency standard. However, in order to pre-empt OPEC, they need to gain geo-strategic control of Iraq along with its 2nd largest proven oil reserves.

Remember how Bush warned Iraqi soldiers about the oil wells?

(I’ve yet to digest this behemoth paper in its entirety, but I thought sharing this link appropriate on Day 1 of Gulf War II or whatever catchy code name it’s been given. Thanks, Jordan, for the tip.)
