    War drums are beating for Iran. But who's playing them?

    Excellent article from Terry Jones: The Guardian

    Just like the taxpayers of medieval Italian cities, we're having our money siphoned off to pay for a a greedy military machine
    I can see many want war. I hope this time the protests stop it.

    Interesting, although Craig Murray has been published in The Guardian.

    "Just like the taxpayers of medieval Italian cities, we're having our money siphoned off to pay for a a greedy military machine"

    That's an interesting comparison.
    You could also say "Just like the citizens of the Roman Empire there is no way to escape the tax arm of the American Empire".
    Americans and green card holders must file a tax return no matter where they live, and if you have dividend income from US stocks 10% to 30% of that money is gone, with very few exceptions.

    Everything is going according to plan
    The Plan -- according to U.S. General Wesley Clark (Ret.) - YouTube

    WW3 will happen when China and Russia get fed up with this.

    China is in a soft contain right now Thailand, Vietnam, South Korea, Phillipines, Japan, Austraillia and Myanmmar now

    Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Sudan, Somalia and finishing off with IRAN.

    Sudan and Somalia are in civil war, Syria is being incited by foreign meddling Egypt was a bonus!

    no need to focus on your economy when you got the strongest military.

    The U.S. owes 1.X trillion to China and they can pay it back anytime they want by printing more money.

    They can tell China when do you want your money a month from now? gives us a month and we'll print you how ever much you want. You want 2 trillion? Sure no problem gives us 2 months and we'll print you all the $ you want.

    It doesn't mean anything they are just wiping out fixed incomes and raising inflation.

    Do you really believe that? You don't think the people in Syria are just a tad upset all on their own?
