Was Assad a victim of the American and Russian economic survival?

“The people will believe what the media tells them they believe.” 

George Orwell

 

The war in Syria started way back in 1971 when President Nixon decided to no longer back US$ with the federal gold reserves, circulating additional money that was required to support the Vietnam War.

During the Falklands War, Argentina adopted the same practice, turning its currency into a worthless piece of paper and its state almost into bankruptcy.

The American didn’t plummet because Kissinger successfully negotiated with leaders of major oil-producing countries to trade their liquid commodities solely in the US$.

For as long as there is a demand for oil, there is also a demand for US$, thus preserving the value of the American currency, and it worked well for the USA and the rest of the world.

The stability of the US$ ensured a stability of oil prices and consequently a global economic stability.

However, by 2070 world’s oil reserves will be depleted, and drastically reduce the demand for US$, which would consequently plummet its value.

“BP’s annual report on proved global oil reserves says that as of the end of 2013, Earth has nearly 1.688 trillion barrels of crude, which will last 53.3 years at current rates of extraction. This figure is 1.1 percent higher than that of the previous year. In fact, during the past 10 years proven reserves have risen by 27 percent, or more than 350 billion barrels.”

Depletion of world’s oil reserves will bring an end to the American currency, economy, its capitalism and consequently destabilise the entire world.

Therefore, to preserve the value of its currency, USA needs a new source of energy that would continue to its trading in US$, such as liquefied natural gas, which would prolong purchase of the American currency over the next centuries.

The world’s largest liquefied natural gas reserves are located in the Persian Gulf, stretching beneath the territorial waters of Iran and Qatar.

Qatar has already undertaken substantial negotiations with neighbouring countries to allow the construction of its new gas pipeline to supply Europe through Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria and Turkey.

“Qatar has proposed a gas pipeline from the Gulf to Turkey in a sign the emirate is considering a further expansion of exports from the world’s biggest gasfield after it finishes an ambitious programme to more than double its capacity to produce liquefied natural gas (LNG).”

However, as early as 2009, Pressident Assad made it clear that instead of the proposed Qatar gas pipeline, he favours the construction of the Iran-Iraq-Syria gas pipeline.

“In 2009 – the same year former French foreign minister Dumas alleges the British began planning operations in Syria – Assad refused to sign a proposed agreement with Qatar that would run a pipeline from the latter’s North field, contiguous with Iran’s South Pars field, through Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria and on to Turkey, with a view to supply European markets – albeit crucially bypassing Russia.”

In late 2010, President Assad signed an agreement with Iran and Iraq to construct a new gas pipeline that would supply Europe with gas extracted from Iran, instead of Qatar.

“More than a year ago, a $10 billion Pipelineistan deal was clinched between Iran, Iraq and Syria for a natural gas pipeline to be built by 2016 from Iran’s giant South Pars field, traversing Iraq and Syria, with a possible extension to Lebanon.”

http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/opinion/2012/08/201285133440424621.html

Within three months from signing the Russian backed Iran-Iraq-Syria gas pipeline, which was due to be completed in 2016, BBC reported on the first democratic protests in Syria, demanding President Assad’s resignation.

Consequently, in December 2011, US troops pulled out of Iraq, which enabled the establishment of ISIS, a terrorist organisation set out to destroy the USA using weapons manufactured by their enemy.

However, ISIS was a unique kind of terrorist organisation, Islamic State organisation with a mission to undermine the efforts of another Islamic State, by:

  • Fighting Assad’s forces;
  • Intercepting Assad’s support from Iran: and
  • Preventing the construction of the Iranian gas pipeline through Iraq.

Therefore, if actions speak louder than words, the enemies of Iran and Russia were the only ones who benefited from ISIS.

When economic stability of the two superpowers is dependant on who gets to supply Europe with natural gas, Qatar or Iran, a nuclear war between Russia and the USA is imminent.

Supplying Europe with gas from Qatar, which would be traded in US$, would preserve the long-term value of the American currency and destroy the Russian economy.

Supplying Europe with gas from Iran, be traded in EURO, would destroy the American currency and making Russia the global energetical empire.

Hillary wanted Assad to go, and if she were to become the next President, to protect USA’s international reputation of winning wars against oppressive regimes, she would have had to keep her word and prolonged until Assad is removed, which required taking out Russia first.

Therefore, instead of Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump became the 45th US President.

Replying to ABC News’ allegations about illegal votes that secured him the presidency, Donald Trump said:

“We’re gonna find out. And — and, by the way, when I say you’re gonna find out. You can never really find, you know, there are gonna be — no matter what numbers we come up with there are gonna be lots of people that did things that we’re not going to find out about.”

https://www.google.com/amp/abcnews.go.com/amp/Politics/transcript-abc-news-anchor-david-muir-interviews-president/story%3fid=45047602

It seems that lots of people that did things that we’re not going to find out about, such as averting WWIII by appointing Donald Trump as the 45th US President.

Did Mr Farage betray his “little people” with Brexit?

“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country… It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.”

Edward L. Bernays

Addressing the European Parliament for the first time since the EU referendum, emotional Nigel Farage reminded MEPs of what his “little people” achieved, stating:

“Because what the little people did, what the ordinary people did – what the people who’d been oppressed over the last few years who’d seen their living standards go down did – was they rejected the multinationals, they rejected the merchant banks, they rejected big politics and they said actually, we want our country back, we want our fishing waters back, we want our borders back.”

http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/farage-eu-parliament-brexit_uk_57724598e4b0232d331e9f55

Throughout his Brexit campaign, Mr Farage presented himself and UKIP, as the only political party who fights for Britain’s “little people” and stands up against the wealthy elite.

Regrettably, instead of judging Mr Farage’s actions, Britain’s “little people” believed his words and voted to leave the EU.

Mr Farage is the only politician in the British history who fought for the “the ordinary people”, yet got money and support for his Brexit campaign form the wealthy tax-dodging elite who are responsible for the ongoing struggle of his “little people”.

In April 2015, Richard Desmond, the tax-dodging owner of the Sunday Express, the Daily Star and OK! magazine, donated £1.3m to UKIP, claiming:

“I firmly believe in Ukip. It’s a party for good, ordinary British people. It is not run by elitists.”

http://www.express.co.uk/news/politics/570952/Express-Newspapers-Chairman-Richard-Desmond-gives-1-3m-to-Ukip

In fact, the majority of highly influential people and owners of establishments who campaigned for Brexit are elitists who share a common value, being implicated in tax-dodging practices.

British tax havens are created exclusively for the elitists to avoid paying their taxes, including Mr Farage, who avoided paying his taxes by setting up an offshore fund in the Isle of Man.

The list of prominent Brexiteers who have avoided paying tax to UK tax authorities includes:

Arron Banks, who is associated with and profits from companies set up in the British Virgin Islands and Gibraltar tax havens.

Sir James Dyson, who partially avoided his full share of tax by setting up companies in Malta, the Isle of Man and Luxembourg tax havens.

And, of course, David Cameron, the pro-EU British Prime Minister who decided to have the EU referendum, also benefited from his father’s offshore trust who avoided paying taxes by setting up a trust fund in the Bahamas.

The list of prominent pro-Brexit newspapers owners, who avoid paying tax to UK tax authorities includes:

The owner of the Sun newspaper, Rupert Murdoch avoided paying his taxes by setting up his companies in the British Virgin Islands and the Cayman Islands tax havens.

The owners of the Telegraph newspaper, David and Frederick Barclay avoided paying their taxes by registering as residents of Sark island, located in the Channel Island tax haven.

The owner of the Telegraph newspaper, Lord Rothermere avoided paying his taxes by inheriting the Daily Mail through an offshore trust set up in the Channel Island tax haven and being registered as “non-dom”.

The Brexit campaign was fierce, intense, well-financed, and there’s a perfectly good reason why Britain’s wealthy tax-dodgers wanted to leave the EU.

Following Euro’s decline, caused by EU’s Greek bailout and the SFR’s shocking revelation that wealthy Greeks stored around €80 billion in Swiss banks to avoid paying their taxes, the European Commission decided to bring an end to tax-avoiding practices amongst its member states.

The European Commission began working on the EU’s new Anti Tax Avoidance Directive in 2013, endorsed it in 2016, and its member states must implement it by 2019.

The dates of the development of EU’s Anti Tax Avoidance Directive coincides with key Brexit developments.

In 2012, the European Commission produced their action plan to clamp down on tax avoidance, and within a month, David Cameron announced that he changed his mind and that he favors an EU referendum.

In 2016, the European Commission produced the first draft of the EU Anti Tax Avoidance Directive and within a month, David Cameron announced the date for EU referendum.

In 2019, all EU member states have to implement the EU Anti Tax Avoidance Directive, by which time the UK is expected to leave the EU and its Directives.

EU’s Anti Tax Avoidance aims to ensure a stable fiscal environment for its member states, decent healthcare, education and public services.

But, instead of protecting our NHS, public services, social welfare and themselves from ongoing austerity measures, Mr Farage’s “little people” decided to protect our tax-dodgers.

If Mr Farage and his UKIP truly cared about the Britain’s “ordinary people”, they would have never voted against EU’s plans to crack down on corporate tax-evasion.

“From Britain, Conservative, Ukip, and DUP MEPs voted against the report, though many did not show up or not vote.”

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/these-are-the-british-meps-who-voted-against-plans-to-crack-down-on-corporate-tax-evasion-a6982271.html

Ultimately, reflecting on Supreme Court’s decision that the British Parliament must decide whether or not to trigger Article 50, Mr Farage revealed the crucial aspect of his Brexit campaign, and it wasn’t about the “little people”:

“Well, we would be half-Brexiting is my guess – is that legally we may get out of some aspects of EU membership, but if we stay in the single market, we finish up with all our businesses being regulated somewhere else and indeed a court in Luxembourg that can overrule our own Supreme Court and if that happens it will a supreme act of betrayal.”

The European Court of Justice in Luxembourg is responsible for ensuring that EU directives are interpreted and applied in the same way in every member state, including EU’s Anti Tax Avoidance Directive.

Democracy is great because it also enables citizens to hold politicians accountable for lying to their electorate.

People of Great Britain, it is time you exercised your democratic right!
