In times of universal deceit, telling
the truth is a revolutionary act.
         - George Orwell


Napoleon once observed that "history" is a set of lies agreed upon. In an era of ubiquitous fake news and information warfare, this has never been more true. The very concept of objective truth in history is fading out of our world. Pure propaganda and outright lies are passing into our history textbooks as unquestioned truth, condemning future generations to false views about historical reality. But the task of sifting through the lies and propaganda is overwhelming, limited by the ambition and time constraints of most observors. Only those who have dedicated their lives to sorting reality from falsehood are qualified to rewrite "consensus" history as a duty to humanity. The contributors to this site endeavor to do just that.

"Brazen Plot To Exonerate Hillary Clinton" And Frame Trump Unraveling, Says Former Fed Prosecutor

 By Tyler Durden, zerohedge.com, Jan 21, 2018

       A former Federal Prosecutor sat down with The Daily Caller to give perhaps the most comprehensive rundown of the Obama Administration's "brazen plot to exonerate Hillary Clinton" and "frame an incoming president with a false Russian conspiracy."
       In this highly recommended 30 minute interview with Joe diGenova, the former Special Counsel who went after both the Teamsters and former NY Governor Elliot Spitzer, paints a very clear picture of collusion is painted between the Obama administration, the FBI, the Clinton campaign and opposition research firm Fusion GPS.

US Military World's First Real Artificial Intelligence

 By Globalintelhub, reposted on zerohedge.com, Jan 21, 2018

       The AI space is growing rapidly in markets and in business so we thought a reminder of some key points were in order here.  There are legitimate concerns about a truly intelligent AI system that may render humans 'useless' - not likely to result in a Terminator style scenario but any scenario where AI is making decisions and not humans - at the detriment to humans - should be closely monitored.  The decline of USA, corporatism, fascism, corporate abuses, market manipulation, is well documented on Zero Hedge and no need to elaborate more on it.  America Inc. was bought and sold many times over that any hope of real democracy (if there ever was) is only a line item on a financial statement.  Democracy simply isn't profitable.  We explain this in our book Splitting Pennies.

Washington And Allies Go Orwellian On Korea Peace Talks

Authored by Finian Cunningham via The Strategic Culture Foundation, reposted on zerohedge.com by Tyler Durden, Jan 20, 2018

       Just as North and South Korea achieve important peaceful exchanges, Washington and its NATO allies appear to be moving with determination to sabotage the initiative for averting war on the East Asian peninsula.
       Further, the reckless, gratuitous provocations beg the conclusion that the United States is indeed trying to start a war.
       Meanwhile, unprecedented accusations this week by US President Donald Trump that Russia is supporting North Korea to evade United Nations sanctions also point to the danger that any conflict could spiral out of control to engulf world nuclear powers.

David Seaman: Q's Postings Are "Chicken Soup For The Deep State Soul"

        Reality Check.

       Is the Storm really here?  Or is this all just hype?  Is the current fuss over the government shut-down and FISA memo just more of the same - another scandal-du-jour which will blow over like every other scandal?  Are the optimistic troop-rallying 8chan posts by Q anon just a pile of "fan fiction", meant to make Trump supporters feel good about Trump's supposed swamp-draining measures?  Are these posts really just a bunch of gibberish, designed to placate the anger among Truth researchers while the conspirators and pedophiles in Washington continue to walk free?  Have we been fed a bunch of "Chicken Soup For The Deep State Soul"?
       These are the poignant questions now being asked by independent journalist David Seaman as we end the first week of the supposed 'Storm'.  "Name ONE elite pedophile who has been arrested - just ONE!" quips Seaman.  He has a point:  Where are all the arrests?  Have we been fed a bunch of "hope porn" by Trump and his team? "Fuck you, Q" is Seaman's conclusion.
       Watch the following video and feel the disappointment expressed by Seaman, and ask yourself:  Is he right?  Or is he just being impatient?

Thinking The Unthinkable: Nuclear War With North Korea

 Authored by Richard Bitzinger via The Strategic Culture Foundation, reposted on zerohedge.com by Tyler Durden, Jan 18, 2018

       Is the Trump administration prepping the American people – indeed, the world – for a war against North Korea? It certainly seems so. US President Donald Trump is constantly needling North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, comparing the size of their respective “nuclear buttons,” while during a speech to the United Nations in September he promised to “totally destroy North Korea” if it was believed to be a threat to the United States.
       Trump’s generals – the only other people he seems to trust, outside of his immediate family – appear to be playing along. The head of the US Marine Corps told his troops that “there’s a war coming.” H R McMaster, Trump’s national security adviser, also seems pumped up for conflict. According to recent articles, McMaster feels that traditional deterrence will not work on Kim, and that it is “almost impossible to overstate the threat from a nuclear-armed North Korea.”

The Criminal Deep State Pushes Back: Remember the CIA’s Heart Attack Gun? CNN Predicts Trump Will Die From Heart Attack

 Mainstream media is conditioning public for Trump’s “heart attack”
Kit Daniels | Infowars.com - Jan 18, 2018 

       CNN keeps predicting Trump will die of a heart attack, which brings to mind the CIA poison dart gun that can trigger one.
       Revealed by the Church Committee in 1975, the “heart attack gun” is a modified 1911 that can shoot a dart with a deadly poison that’s nearly undetectable – which is perfect for political assassinations.  “The poison was frozen into some sort of dart and then it was shot at very high speed into the person,” said CIA whistleblower Mary Embree. “When it reached the person it would melt inside them, and there would be a tiny red dot on their body, which was hard to detect.”  “There wouldn’t be a needle or anything like that left in the person.”

The Storm Is HERE: If You Don't Feel It, Stop Watching Mainstream News, and Get Prepared - NOW

        Here are the most important facts relating to The Storm that you need to know to stay abreast of the developments:

1. The FusionGPS/Steele Dossier that attempted to tarnish Trump leading up to the 2017 election and paint a "Russian collusion" narrative has backfired.  All the key players, and funding, has been dissected, and it leads back to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
2. The Clinton Crime Cabal is becoming untangled.  The fraudulent billions funneled through the Clinton Foundation for pay-to-play access to CIA criminal networks is being traced through a collective effort of independent researchers like George Webb and Charles Ortel.  Thousands of sealed indictments are being issued to round up the participants in a mass arrest, which is imminent.  Planes with criminals associated with this cabal are being turned around on a daily basis, and criminals are being detained.
3. Trump has met in a sealed, EMF-sound-proof room in the Pentagon with top members of his team and the military to prepare for the national emergency that results from the mass arrests going public after this weekend, when the government shuts down.
4.  Hillary, Obama, and hundreds of other key players in the Obama regime are going to be arrested.  Money laundering, drug running, organ harvesting and child trafficking are at the heart of this criminal conspiracy.
5. The false "missile alert warning" that took place in Hawaii on January 13th was for a singular purpose:  to facilitate a Bulk Data Transfer (BDT)from the secret NSA facility there to the Air Force on mainland United States.  This allowed Trump and his team to acquire the bulk metadata needed to assure the successful convictions of the criminal cabal.  'Q' referred to this event with cryptic references to DEFCON1 and BDT in the days leading up to the incident.  Bill and Hillary Clinton just HAPPENED to be in Hawaii when this false alarm occurred.
6.  The anonymous 4chan poster by the name 'Q' has been letting the public in on the plot as it has unfolded. The person behind these posts is a Trump insider, and is coordinating his information releases with Trump. Youtube is full of 'Q' and 'Calm Before The Storm' (CBTS) analyses.  See, for example:  Tracy Beanz; Jodan Sather (Destroying the Illusion); AntiSchool; and CBTS Stream
7. George Webb has identified all of the key components of the The Greatest Conspiracy of All Time.  It centres around Uranium 1, the Clinton Foundation, the Awan brothers, the DNC, the murder of Seth Rich, the missing 650,000 emails from Hillary's server, bribery and blackmail in congress, and, of course, human trafficking - especially the Child sex trafficking networks.  Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Awan Brothers, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, John McCain, senior members of Congress, members of the CIA, and more, - thousands of people in total - will be facing military tribunals in Guantanamo in the months to come.
9. All of this is going to be conducted under the cover of a government shut-down in Washington, as well as a war in Korea.  Trump will formally announce the true nature of this mass round-up of Washington criminality during his January 30th State of the Union Address, as per the Q post today (Jan 18th).
10.  In an attempt to stop all of this, the Deep State criminal empire is working overtime right now trying to find a way to get close to Trump in order to assassinate him via the 'Heart Attack Gun'.  The fact that Trump has a DUAL personal security entourage - the Secret Service as well as a private security firm loyal only to him - means pulling off an assassination will be exceedingly difficult.  Crushing this Trump counter-coup (against the Mueller investigation, designed to impeach him) is the big fear.

 The United States will descend into political chaos.  The stock markets of the world are going to crash, and even be shut down for a time as there is a run on the banks.  And the world order as we have known it for 73 years is about to come to a turbulent shake-up.

Are you ready for this Storm?  This is 'The Event' people have warned about for nearly a decade - the chaos which ushers in World War V.  Get ready - NOW. The Storm is HERE.

"It's All A Lie" - Self-Reflection At The Twilight Of The American Empire

 Authored by Mike Krieger via Liberty Blitzkrieg blog, reposted on zerohedge.com by Tyler Durden, Jan 17, 2018

       There is a true law, a right reason, conformable to nature, universal, unchangeable, eternal, whose commands urge us to duty, and whose prohibitions restrain us from evil. Whether it enjoins or forbids, the good respect its injunctions, and the wicked treat them with indifference. This law cannot be contradicted by any other law, and is not liable either to derogation or abrogation. Neither the senate nor the people can give us any dispensation for not obeying this universal law of justice. It needs no other expositor and interpreter than our own conscience. It is not one thing at Rome and another at Athens; one thing today and another tomorrow; but in all times and nations this universal law must for ever reign, eternal and imperishable. It is the sovereign master and emperor of all beings. God himself is its author,—its promulgator,—its enforcer. He who obeys it not, flies from himself, and does violence to the very nature of man. For his crime he must endure the severest penalties hereafter, even if he avoid the usual misfortunes of the present life.

Jim Rickards Warns: Bursting This Bubble Could Break The World

 Authored by James Rickards via The Daily Reckoning blog, reposted on zerohedge.com by Tyler Durden, Jan 17, 2018

       The key to bubble analysis is to look at what’s causing the bubble. If you get the hidden dynamics right, your ability to collect huge profits or avoid losses is greatly improved.
       Based on data going back to the 1929 crash, this current bubble looks like a particular kind that can produce large, sudden losses for investors.  The market right now is especially susceptible to a sharp correction, or worse.

Skynet Now: Pentagon Deploys Terrorist-Hunting Artificial Intelligence

 Authored by Jake Anderson via TheAntiMedia.org, reposted on zerohedge.com by Tyler Durden, Jan 16, 2018

       Someday, future sentient artificial intelligence (AI) systems may reflect on their early indentured servitude for the human military-industrial complex with little to no nostalgia. But we’ll worry about that when the day comes. For now, let’s continue writing algorithms that conscript machine intelligence into terrorist bombings and let the chips fall where they may. The most recent disclosure comes directly from the Pentagon, where after only 8 months of development a small team of intel analysts has effectively deployed an AI into the battlefield in control of weaponized systems to hunt for terrorists.
       The military minds in charge of this new form of warfare feel it is nothing less than the future of armed conflicts. For example, Air Force Lt. Gen. John N.T. “Jack” Shanahan, director for defense intelligence for warfighter support and the Pentagon general in charge of the terrorist-hunting AI, says Project Maven – the name given to the flagship weaponized AI system at the Defense Department — is “prototype warfare” but also a glimpse of the future.

The One Fact Which Disproves Russiagate, But Nobody Wants To Talk About

 Authored by Caitlyn Johnstone via Medium.com, reposted on zerohedge.com by Tyler Durden, Jan 16, 2018

       Over the weekend, the people of Hawaii were temporarily terrorized by a notification sent to their mobile phones that a ballistic missile was headed straight for them and they needed to seek shelter immediately. They were not notified that it was a false alarm for 38 minutes, despite its reportedly being a simple human error triggered by an employee who “pushed the wrong button”.
       Many who are less trusting of official CNN narratives when it comes to the US power establishment have been voicing skepticism of this explanation, finding the timing highly suspect given that the Trump administration just caused international controversy by giving the okay for a $133 million sale of an anti-ballistic missile system to Japan. A sale which, according to Russia, violates international ballistic missile treaties and will put a strain on Moscow’s relationship with Tokyo.

As No One Watched, Trump Pardoned 5 Megabanks For Corruption Charges

 Authored by Richard Blevins via The Free Thought Project, reposted on zerohedge.com by Tyler Durden, Jan 15, 2018

       While Americans celebrated the holidays, President Trump followed in the footsteps of his predecessors by acting in the interest of Wall Street and using the distraction to do something that was not in the best interest of the American people. He pardoned five megabanks for rampant fraud and corruption, which is especially notable because of the amount of money he owes them.
       Trump has been using Deutsche Bank since the 1990s, and Financial Times has reported that he now owes the bank at least $130 million in outstanding loans secured in properties in Miami, Chicago, and Washington. However, the report claimed that the actual number is likely much larger at $300 million.
       Reports claimed that Deutsche was the only bank willing to lend Trump money after his companies faced multiple bankruptcies. The relationship has continued over the years, and an analysis from the Wall Street Journal claimed that Trump has received at least $2.5 billion in loans from Deutsche Bank over the last 20 years.

Pope Warns World Is One Step Away From Nuclear War

 By Philip Pullella, Reuters, Jan 15, 2018

       ABOARD THE PAPAL PLANE (Reuters) - Pope Francis said on Monday he was really afraid about the danger of nuclear war and that the world now stood at "the very limit".
       His comment, made as he flew off for a visit to Chile and Peru, came after Hawaii issued a false missile alert that provoked panic in the U.S. state and highlighted the risk of possible unintended nuclear war with North Korea.
       Asked if he was worried about the possibility of nuclear war, Pope Francis said: "I think we are at the very limit. I am really afraid of this. One accident is enough to precipitate things."  He did not mention Hawaii or North Korea.

As If We Didn't Have Enough To Worry About: Pakistan Threatens India With Nuclear War After Indian Army Chief's Statement

 By Tyler Durden, zerohedge.com, Jan 14, 2018

       Hawaii’s ballistic missile attack on Saturday turned out to be nothing more than fat-fingered "fake news" by State officials. However, a far more significant threat of nuclear war is growing on the border between India and Pakistan, called the Line of Control (LoC), which continues to be generally ignored by Western media outlets.
       Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat said Friday his military was ready to call Pakistan’s “nuclear bluff” and carry out aggressive military operations across the border.
       "We will call the (nuclear) bluff of Pakistan. If we will have to really confront the Pakistanis, and a task is given to us, we are not going to say we cannot cross the border because they have nuclear weapons. We will have to call their nuclear bluff," Gen. Rawat warned, responding to a question during a press conference on the “possibility of Pakistan using its nuclear weapons in case the situation along the border deteriorates,” said the Hindustan Times.

Q anon Announces Checkmate Just As Julian Assange Tweets a Chess Match Won By 'WhiteHat'

       After ten weeks of mysterious posts on 8chan, Q has announced checkmate.  But what game of chess is Q referring to?  And what does checkmate mean?
       The timing of Q's recent post is interesting, in light of the last post indicating that 'The Storm' has arrived, as well as Julian Assange's cryptic tweet showing a classic century-old chess match won by Cuban Capablanca (Spanish for "white hat").  Are the White Hats in the military and intelligence community - aligned with President Trump - about to pull off a Checkmate against criminal Deep State forces?
       All the indications are that Donald Trump and his team have quietly, behind the scenes, lined up all their ducks to take down the Clinton crime cabal.  Mass arrests are imminent.  Bill and Hillary Clinton are soon going to jail.  Thousands of criminal accomplices are going with them.  Donald Trump is about to make his big move, and The Deep State is on the run.
       Will Trump succeed?  Or will the Clinton's pull out all the stops and fight back with all they've got, causing a national emergency in a desperate attempt to keep their criminal empire intact?  Stay tuned!

The Strange Fate of Those Who Saw JFK Shot

 By William Penn Jones Jr. and True Publica, published on Globalresearch.ca, Jan 13, 2018

       William Penn Jones Jr. was an American journalist, the editor of the Midlothian Mirror and author. He was also one of the earliest John F. Kennedy assassination conspiracy theorists. Jones attended the University of Texas at Austin and was a classmate of Henry Wade and John Connally. Wade later become the District Attorney in Dallas while Connolly would later become the 39th Governor of Texas. Both men were figures in the assassination of JFK.
       In 1946, Jones purchased the Midlothian Mirror for $4,000; he eventually sold the newspaper in 1974. In 1963, Penn received the Elijah Lovejoy Award for Courage in Journalism.  Jones was also known for being an early critic of the Warren Commission‘s report on the assassination of JFK. In 1967, he self-published Forgive My Grief, a four-volume work on the assassination of President Kennedy. In the 1980s, Jones co-edited The Continuing Inquiry newsletter with Gary Mack of the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza.

Jim Rickards Warns: 2018 Will Be The Year Of Living Dangerously

 Authored by Jim Rickards via The Daily Reckoning, reposted on zerohedge.com by Tyler Durden, Jan 11, 2018

       I’m calling 2018 “The Year of Living Dangerously.”
       That description might seem odd to lot of observers. Major U.S. stock indexes keep hitting new all-time highs. 2017 went down as the first calendar year in which the Dow Jones industrial average was up for all 12 months.
       Even in strong bull market years there are usually one or two down months as stocks take a breather on the way higher. Not last year. There’s been no rest for the bull; it’s up, up and away.

Will President Trump Be Removed From Office Based on the 25th Amendment?

       Washington is ripping itself apart.  The 'Russian collusion' narrative employed by Democrats and anti-Trump / Deep State forces is falling apart.  The Mueller investigation is turning on its originators and entangling Clinton allies in wide-ranging corruption charges.  A storm is brewing in the halls of power, and Trump's offensive against the Deep State and pedogate criminals is threatening to turn the tide in his favour, solidifying his hold on power while putting thousands of formerly protected Deep State criminals in prison on life sentences.
       Predictably, the anti-Trump forces are pulling out all the stops and going-for-broke.  The latest, last-ditch effort to remove Trump from office centres around his "fitness to serve" - the so-called 25th amendment, which allows for the forcible removal from office of any president deemed mentally unsound.  Talk shows and mainstream media are abuzz with talk of deploying "the 25th against the 45th" (president).  But will it succeed?

RussiaGate Turns On Its Originators

 Authored by Paul Craig Roberts, reposted on zerohedge.com by Tyler Durden, Jan 9, 2018

       Russiagate originated in a conspiracy between the military/security complex, the Clinton-controlled Democratic National Committee, and the liberal/progressive/left. The goal of the military/security complex is to protect its out-sized budget and power by preventing President Trump from normalizing relations with Russia. Hillary and the DNC want to explain away their election loss by blaming a Trump/Putin conspiracy to steal the election. The liberal/progressive/left want Trump driven from office.
       As the presstitutes are aligned with the military/security complex, Hillary and the DNC, and the liberal/progressive/left, the Russiagate orchestration is a powerful conspiracy against the president of the United States and the “deplorables” who elected him. Nevertheless, the Russiagate Conspiracy has fallen apart and has now been turned against its originators.

The Q anon Phenomenon: Pro-Trump Hope Porn?

       The Internet buzz over Q anon has ramped up to new levels.  After a week of silence, Q posted new cryptic information on 4chan and 8chan over the weekend - information which suggests the "calm before" the storm has passed, and the storm is here.
       Unquestionably, whoever Q is, they have an ear to the president.  Correlations between Q posts and Trump's tweets confirm this.  Some have suggested that Q is one of the heads of the intelligence agencies.  Others suggest Q is not one person, but a team of intelligence agents working for Trump.  Still others (like Quinn Michaels) has put forward the radical idea that Q is actually AI (artificial intelligence) - a manifestation of 'Tyler', the CIA's supercomputer AI network based in Tyler, Texas.  If this latter possibility is true, then the fact that Q and Trump coordinate their messages means Trump is colluding not with the Russians to control America, but with a robot intelligence.

Bitcoin Isn't The Bubble - The Global Financial System Is

The more creative types will also throw around the South Sea or Mississippi Bubble. You get the point. The consensus among the very smart experts is unanimous:  bitcoin is clearly and indisputably a gigantic bubble that’s set to burst. I’ve been hearing this since the early days of getting involved in the space back in 2012. But I’m not convinced.

"The Calm Before the Storm" Transitions to... The Storm

       For ten weeks now, the Truthseeking community in the United States and beyond has been enamored by the cryptic posts on 4chan and 8chan of someone going by the name 'Q' - also known as Qanon.  These posts are usually phrased in the form of questions, which lead researchers down various rabbit holes of inquiry, and purport to reveal the behind-the-scenes workings of the Trump administration, especially as it relates to the take-down of criminal elements within the Deep State.
       Various clues have been left which point to the authenticity of the claim that Q does indeed hold a Q-level security clearance, which means direct access to the President of the United States. Correspondence with Trump's tweets and DoD communiques also lend credence to this claim.  Numerous references have been made to this period of history being "the calm before the storm"... until THIS weekend, when Q's latest posts have started to suggest that the Storm is HERE.  So what can we expect in the weeks to come?

Finally, an International Human Organ Trafficker Is Arrested... and He Is Israeli

       Organ trafficking is one of the most egregious crimes occurring in the world today.  In conflict zones around the world, living people sometimes "disappear", never to be seen again.  What we are increasingly learning is that many of these people are abducted by military forces and harvested for their organs.
       A single human body can fetch millions of dollars as bodies are carved up and sold for parts:  hearts, lungs, livers, kidneys, skin, and bone marrow.  Rich donor recipients around the world are willing to pay the price to extend their own lives at the expense of others.
       Normally attributed to corrupt regimes like China, the practice is now known to be orchestrated by Western interests, including the DynCorp corporation, Israelis with connections to the Mossad, and the Clinton Foundation.  The practice started in earnest by these forces in the 1990's in Kosovo, but as time goes on, the practice has spread to become an epidemic, with tens of thousands of people now disappearing yearly.  Finally, someone has been arrested for being an international ringleader or organ harvesting, and he happens to be... Israeli.

Jim Kunstler Warns "Ill Winds Are Blowing"

 Authored by James Howard Kunstler via Kunstler.com, reposted on zerohedge.com by Tyler Durden, Jan 5, 2018.

"Fire & Fury"

       It’s told that Richard Nixon, during the endgame weeks of Watergate, wandered the west wing hallways in the wee hours, fueled on scotch whiskey, conversing with portraits of notable Americans, including many of his predecessors. “Whaddaya say, Millard? Should I stay or should I go?” He was a trapped animal, after a long, grueling, hunt, and he knew the hounds were closing in. Perhaps he took some consolation in hearing that old Abe Lincoln was even more depressed in the final, victorious days of the civil war than he, Nixon, was at the sheer cruelty of history. In the end, he marshaled the remaining shreds of his dignity, and mounted the helicopter to — his pursuers hoped — an oblivion more fathomless than the mystery of the grave.

"Everyone Is Affected": Why The Implications Of The Intel "Bug" Are Staggering

 By Tyler Durden, zerohedge.com, Jan 3, 2018

       Earlier today, we reported that according to a press reports, Intel's computer chips were affected by a bug that makes them vulnerable to hacking. Specifically, The Register said the bug lets some software gain access to parts of a computer’s memory that are set aside to protect things like passwords, and making matters worse, all computers with Intel chips from the past 10 years appear to be affected. The news, which sent Intel's stock tumbling, was later confirmed by the company.

Petro-Yuan Looms - How China Will Shake Up The Oil Futures Market

       Additionally, Levison warns Washington that besides serving as a hedging tool for Chinese companies, the contract will aid a broader Chinese government agenda of increasing the use of the yuan in trade settlement... and thus the acceleration of de-dollarization and the rise of the Petro-Yuan.

       The New Year is one full of economic, political, and war threats.

        Among the economic threats are stock, bond, and real estate markets artificially pumped up by years of central bank money creation and by false reports of full employment. It is an open question whether participants in these markets are aware that underlying reality does not support the asset values. Central banks support stock markets not only with abundant liquidity but also with direct stock purchases. The Japanese central bank is now one of the largest owners of Japanese equities. Central banks, which are supposed to provide economic stability, have created a massive fraud.

Behind Korea, Iran & Russia Tensions: The Lurking Financial War

 Authored by Alastair Crooke via The Strategic Culture Foundation, reposted on zerohedge.com by Tyler Durden, Jan 2, 2018

       What have the tensions between the US and North Korea, Iran and Russia in common?

       Answer: It is that they are components to a wider financial war.

Russia and Iran (together with China) happen to be the three key players shaping a huge (almost half the global population) alternative currency zone. The North Korean issue is important as it potentially may precipitate the US – depending on events – towards a more aggressive policy toward China (whether out of anger at Chinese hesitations over Korea, or as part and parcel of the US Administration’s desire to clip China’s trading wings).
