Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Verse 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

The "Petrodollar" War WR15-222
your Watchman spent 14 months in Iraq as an counter-terrorism intelligence
analyst and is retired from the U.S. Army)
I was talking to God this morning the following thoughts came to my mind about
the U.S. dollar as the global reserve currency.
Above, Saddam Hussein is hanged
It is now obvious to some of us
that the invasion of Iraq had less to do with any threat from Saddam’s WMD
program and certainly less to do to do with fighting the global war on
terrorism (GWOT) than it had to do with gaining control over Iraq’s hydrocarbon
reserves and in doing so maintaining the U.S. dollar as the monopoly
currency for the critical international oil market. Statements by former administration
insiders reveal that the Bush/Cheney administration entered into office with
the intention of toppling Saddam Hussein. Indeed, the neoconservative strategy
of installing a pro-U.S. government in Baghdad along with multiple U.S.
military bases was partly designed to thwart further momentum within OPEC
Candidly stated, "Operation Iraqi Freedom" was a
war designed to install a pro-U.S. puppet in Iraq, establish multiple U.S
military bases before the onset of “Peak Oil”, and to re-convert Iraq back to
petrodollars while hoping to thwart further OPEC momentum towards the euro as
an alternative oil transaction currency. In 2003 the global community witnessed
a combination of petrodollar warfare and oil depletion warfare. The majority of
the world’s governments, especially the E.U., Russia and China, were not
Times, in an article dated June 5th, 2003, confirmed that Iraqi oil
sales were returning to the international markets and again would be
denominated in US dollars, not Euros. Not surprisingly, this detail was never
mentioned in the US "lame stream media" that censors such information
from the U.S. public. Confirmation of this vital fact provides insight into one
of the crucial, yet overlooked, rationales for 2003 the Iraq war.
Now, jump to today, and Iraq remains a de-stabilized nation.
By the way, in the midst of the invasion large amounts of Iraq's gold were
stolen and surprise, the stolen Gold and thieves were never found.
Above, Ghadafi meets and greets Obama.
How did the Gadhafi regime go from “a
model repentant” nation that renounced terrorism and WMDs and an “important
U.S. and European ally” to a target for regime change in a period of just a few
years? In fact, claims that Gadhafi committed “genocide”, the justification for
NATO intervention in Libya were disputed by intelligence experts.
Gadhafi’s planned to
quit selling Libyan oil and natural gas in U.S. dollars and demand payment
instead in gold-backed “dinars” (a single African currency made from gold). The
regime, sitting on massive amounts of gold, estimated at close to 150 tons, was
also pushing other African and Middle Eastern governments to follow suit.
By the way, since
the U.S. and NATO regime change in Libya, Libya's Gold reserves have
disappeared and surprise, surprise the thieves and the stolen Gold were never
found. Below, note the BRICS data to the far left of the graph.
Friends, we have
entered a “new cold war” between the NATO powers and the BRICS-affiliated
resistance bloc. The main thrust of this war according toglobalist
think tanks and the "lame stream media"
mouthpieces will not generally be fought with armies on
battlefields but will be fought “asymmetrically” with covert financial
operations, corporations, pipelines and contracts. If economic warfare is the
new normal for the 21st century, then Russia and China have just revealed one
of their key weapons in this fight. It is neither a missile, a tank, a stealth
fighter nor an electromagnetic weapon. No, it is overt and covert financial
You will recall French
President Nicolas Sarkozy went so far as to call Gadhafi a “threat” to the
financial security of the world. The “global Insiders” were apparently
panicking over Gadhafi’s plan and now we have the BRICS threat.

4. The U.S. and NATO
The pattern seems clear to me. If a sovereign, independent
nation challenges the primacy of the global U.S. dollar financial system (the
world reserve currency) then economic and or military war ensues. Hence, the
U.S. and NATO covertly intervened in Ukraine and overthrew the legitimately
elected government to pressure Putin and BRICS. By the way, Ukraine's Gold
reserves have been stolen by unknown culprits and surprise, surprise the Gold
and thieves have not been uncovered.
Now NATO and the U.S. are training
eastern European armies Poland, Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, Romania and
Bulgaria to put pressure on Putin and the BRICS coalition. This is a direct
violation of the promise President Reagan made to Gorbachev. Gorbachev agreed
to tear down the Warsaw bloc and in return Reagan promised not to expand NATO
into Eastern Europe.
Finally, I would speculate that some of
the financial and stock market problems in China are related to covert attacks
on China’s economic system and stock market by the U.S. and Europe. Stay tuned
because the financial and economic war is escalating.
