Global Instability





Home


If there is one thing that can be said that is certain is that this is period of great economic and political instability. There are many ominous happenings today that need to be taken into account. I will go over each major point of trouble I see with this relatively short synopsis.

Saudi Arabia

While the news from Iraq has received much of  the news headlines in the world, it is Saudi Arabia that I believe will be the most important linchpin of future instability. This situation there is very serious. That is just one step above what is often described as ‘grave’.  Soon if things do not stabilize, the Royal family will be ousted and a much more radical government will come to power. The Saudi Royals are one of the most despotic and brutal regimes on the planet. They are perhaps as bad as Saddam was when he was running Iraq. This is not exaggeration and it had been expressed by many observers and commentators inside and outside of the US government and by both individuals close to the Saudi regime and those who are not. Torture, religious persecution, executions all are part of the crumbling foundation of Saudi royal power.  It’s main sponsor, the United States, is currently involved in an extremely unpopular war with its Arab neighbor and this fact alone has contributed significantly to the regime’s instability. The Americans have provided various security assistance to the Saudi’s which includes, arms, training and various ‘consultative’ assistance which many believe include many of the harsh and repressive measured we see today in Saudi Arabia. The Saudi Royal family could not remain in power without American assistance and support. It is this fact and the regimes closeness to the American establishment that is at the heart of the growing insurgent movement in Saudi Arabia. This relationship has proven to be very lucrative for many in the US, not the least of which is President Bush’s family and the Cheney’s. Many, if not most Saudi’s want the US out of their country. Most certainly they want a more representative form of government. (the word democracy carries with it many bad connotations in the Arab world today as it is associated with President Bush, violent repression, and horrific human rights abuses). These are also is the kinds of things the Saudi regime is known for.

The Saudi’s will eventually be overthrown. This is an unstated (in the mainstream media) but forgone conclusion. Even in the event of the most successful outcome to our war on terror, the Saudi’s will still fall as there is too much bad blood between it and its restive Muslim population.

The Saudi’s have many problems besides being correctly seen as largely American puppets. There are growing economic problems in the nation and unemployment is a growing problem. There is real dissatisfaction with the regime and while it still rakes in enormous amounts of money from its oil revenues, the general perception is that it is not benefiting the bulk of the population. Yet the recent spate of insurgent attacks have not been targeting the usual points of power of the regime (political and military facilities) but rather its oil industry. The Saudi’s rely heavily on foreign workers to run its oil industry. Should enough foreigners shy away from this desert kingdom, it would leave its oil industry (and the global economy) in chaos. This is the target of the insurgents. I will not use the simplistic word ‘terrorism’ as it is used in the US media and the Bush administration because it reduces every non-American foreign policy move on the globe to a terrorist act. Terrorism is a tactic not a policy despite what the current US administration propagandizes to its citizens.

The insurgents are looking for ways to get the US out of its nation, and not just the US but all foreigners who are viewed as benefiting from the Oil that should benefit the entire nation. They believe that it should not be sold on the open market to those who oppose Saudi interests.  While it is certain that many of the insurgents have radical Islamic beliefs such individuals have always existed in Saudi Arabia, the difference now is that these groups have more support now as a result of a deeply misguided US foreign policy.

The result will be that the Saudi’s will fall. Probably not this year and maybe not even next year. But they will fall and when it does, a much more radical government will come to power that will not be interested in the old relationships that brought down their predecessors. This will cause oil to sky rocket for Americans, the country that will be most hated by any new Saudi government. It is very unlikely that this series of events can be avoided. If the Saudi regime had been more receptive to a more powerful people’s assembly and granted it some real power, then some change could have been brought about without the kind of bloodletting we are now seeing and will continue to see. Their regime was too stubborn and greedy to see the long term benefits of this and thus will be destroyed by its short sightedness. The parallels between it and the fall of the Shah of Iran are instructive.

Military action by the US will be seriously hindered by the lack of troops to send to prop up the Saudi regime. This will make any policy consideration made by this (or a new) administration politically almost impossible. The only way a proper amount of troops can be obtained is to pull out of Iraq (this will soon happen for a large number) and/or a draft. Yet even this will not stop the rising tide of Anti-Americanism in Saudi Arabia and we will wind in in the same kind of situation that we have now in Iraq. Though, geographically it may not prove to be quite as difficult. Nevertheless any new American puppet regime will face the same violent resistance we are now witnessing in Iraq.



Iraq




This is a disaster. There is no other way to describe it. Iraq is descending into chaos and probably Civil War. You have George Walker Bush to thank for this fact. Iraq's instability, sandwiched between Iran and Syria, is the dream of America's enemies. Iraq. This is going to be the real result of our ill advised, poorly planned thrust into this already war torn nation. Our troops there behave worse than the Nazi’s did when they occupies parts of Western Europe. Reports of rape, torture, a flagrant disregard for life all are coming out of Iraq. The Nazi’s, with all of the evil at least had disciple in its army. One person who returned from there said he personally witnesses many such acts committed by US troops and contractors. Tanks that run down Iraqi's on sidewalks and run over children just for the ‘hell of it’, no threat, no one firing at them, just because they ‘could’. Troops breaking into homes and stealing from Iraqs who are already dirt poor are just a few of the horror stories coming from eyewitnesses. When people ask if I support this war I say no. When people ask if I support our troops I can no longer say yes. I would have to ask which troops he or she is talking about. Something truly evil is running the Pentagon. I cannot stress enough that there is a complete and total breakdown in Command and Control Among US troops In Iraq. Our troops have no real leadership. Many are out there with weapons and supplies without any real policy or goal. In short it is 'here is a gun, a tank a radio and some food... go out and....(?)'. This is not said the lambaste our troops, though some should stand trial for War Crimes before an independent Iraqi court. The blame lies with Rumsfeld and the President.

The Global Economy




To sum it up in just a few words. Big changes afoot. The Fed has pumped almost as much money into the system as it did in the days following 911 during the month of May. The only reasonable explanation that can possibly be ascertained is that there is a global emergency taking place or is seen on the horizon that the Fed feels is an inevitability. This is very disconcerting to many of the financial pundits who are not invited into the TV studio at your mainstream financial news network. This has not, to my knowledge, even been touched on by any major financial news network. The Feds actions are unprecedented without an serious emergency. So what is going on? I cannot say with certainty but there are a few major possibilities.

1 - The Japanese have been selling Dollars and this is rather unusual. It had been their intervention that has kept the dollar afloat the past few years. This was done to keep Japanese imports cheap for US consumers. It is possible that the Japanese have given fair warning to the Fed that it will not continue this policy and will not purchase US treasuries at the rate it has before. This means that the US will have great difficulty in finding funding to pay for its budget deficit. Given the enormous amount of debt needed to keep the US government afloat arrangements must be made in order to secure that debt. We are having more difficulty in doing so. This may mean that the US is planning on monetizing its debt. Richard Russell believes however that the real risk is deflation and that while the Fed is Jawboning about inflation its real concern is deflation and thus he does not believe that Greenspan will raise rates. In other words Greenspan is playing a slight of hand game with the markets and is preparing to flood us all with lots of liquidity should deflation become more pronounced.

Greenspan has a huge problem -- the price of goods is rising (price inflation) and Greenspan is being pressured to raise rates. But the larger global background is deflationary, and I have to believe that Greenspan's knows it.

What's Greenspan to do? He'll talk about the Fed raising rates in to the hopes that talk will forestall inflation, but he'll ACT as if the real problem is potential deflation, and he'll be very reluctant to actually raise rates. - Richard Russell

2- Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac may be in big trouble with a derivative failure. But perhaps more likely, the Fed recognized that once he beings to raise rates (to attract foreign lenders into US treasuries) he sees one, if not both in serious risk because of their derivative positions. This means he will need large amounts of liquidity on hand immediately in order to prevent a systemic event (crash). The mere size of the derivative positions of these GSE’s means that one or the other could become insolvent in a matter of hours. This may be one of the reasons that Greenspan is creating so much liquidity.

3 -There has already been another massive derivative failure that is not being reported.

4- The money is going to fund the war in Iraq or being funneled to another government agency for reasons unknown.

5- A deal was struck just before Greenspan was renominated to assist Bush in getting re-elected and this flood of liquidity is designed jump start our economy and keep it from falling back into recession.

Inflation is showing up now in the CPI. The recent numbers show a significant rise in prices across the board. This is not good. The CPI numbers that are released are always very conservative because much of our federal governments expenditures are dependent on it, (Social Security, COLA, etc). When the CPI goes up so does the budget. Price inflation is going to be a real problem in America for some time to come. The dollar is soon to be worthless. There is no other way to put it. Yes, they can keep the scam going a little while longer. No, they cannot do it forever. Indeed, it appears that the stock markets are rigged and that a growing number of traders know it. A recent article stated that there is a single account that is propping up the S&P, account 990N. We are now taking about intervention on a massive scale with your tax dollars. Wall street is being run by criminals and if you have your money in the markets, you are a prime target to get robbed.

Other events in the global economy can be found on the article the coming economic depression found on this site.

Venezuela

This is a serious problem that will effect America even if there is scant reporting on it in the US media. Chavez is a charismatic leader whose anti-American rhetoric has made him permanent enemies in the US, in particular with those oil interests that currently run the present US administration. Certain elements in the US want him out of power and appear to be behind much of the organized resistance to his twice democratically elected regime. Venezuela provides about 14% of US oil consumption. It has a variety of heavy crude that is difficult and expensive to refine. Much of the refining is done in the US. Yet Chavez has not been happy with what he and many in his nation view as exploitation by US led multinational corporations. He has alleged many times that the US is behind assassination attempts and coup plotting in his nation. While much of what Chavez has alleged cannot be taken at face value, it is instructive to note that the US has usually resorted to these methods in the past when dealing with uncooperative Central and South American regimes and given this administrations proclivity to 'regime changes', his claims are not far fetched. Once again the US may be able to plot a coup against him and install another military style junta as it has so often in the past, but this is a short term solution that will only make the problem worse as time passes. That is provided that we are successful in our efforts in replacing him. The risk here is that he begins to gain support after numerous failed attempts among our central America allies and starts a wave of anti-American policy initiatives in the region. This is not far-fetched as a large underclass of poor and disaffected people exist in Central and South America that could cause serious instability in neighboring countries if Chavez is overthrown at the behest of US interests.

The world is changing and is no longer as pliant to US policy when it flies in the face of its own stated goals for the region and the world. I mean such reasons as anti-terrorism (there is no more heinous a terrorist act than assassinating a democratically elected leader), freedom, democracy which America has traditionally stood for. This is the crux of the matter for American interests in the region and the world in general; What does America really stand for, freedom and democracy or tyranny, torture and economic exploitation? This is the question that will define our ability to continue to influence the world or will eventually drive us into a pariah nation that will be attacked not just by the Osama Bin Laden’s of the world but the poor, disaffected, tortured, raped and sodomized victims of US foreign policy.  Make no mistake, these victims are a growing and angrier part of the world’s population.

Russia

There has been no big news out of Russia for a long time. One can find interesting stories about the war in Chechnya and the trial of the Oil Chief Khorokovsky and the speeches of Vladimir Putin. But there has been no major shocks in Russia or the past several months. One thing that was noteworthy was that there was a Russian Bank scare in the first week of June and that the banking system there is not in good shape.

Yet there is are big changes in Russia and have been transpiring for the last couple of years though they have been more glacial in speed. The main and most important thing going on in Russia is the rise of a new form of Authoritarianism. This is much the result of the Clinton Administrations theft from Russia during the 1990’s. After this unsavory state of affairs transpired and yielded its poisonous fruit, more conservative elements got control of the situation in Russia and brought their man to power. Putin has brought the Russian people what was sorely lacking during the Yeltsin years. This can be summed up in one word. Order. The people deeply needed some form of stability that the Yeltsin administration could not provide. Putin on the other hand, come out of nowhere and rose to the pinnacle of power. Putin’s connections the old security apparatus of the old Soviet Union (KGB) has had many a commentator asking pointed questions. I have always believed that while there are new faces that hold real power in post Soviet Russia, the old guard is still very much a player in Russian politics and they are not about to allow western style liberalization to continue very far. The depths of the old corruption that existed in the old Soviet Union have only been buried deeper but comes out into the open when a shootout kills a government minister, businessman or journalist. Yet and still this corruption as well as these other changes can be seen by anyone who keeps an eye on Russia. Journalists who cover cases of corruption are fired or killed, their cases are almost never solved. There are some real questions that need to be asked by people who plan to invest in Russia. Will it slide back to the old ways? My guess is that this is entirely possible. Political dissent will not be tolerated in the new and emerging Russia and the same corrupt elements that control the US and much of the Western economies desire Russia create a political-economic model that

·        Only allows well connected Companies obtain Government contracts and market share

·        Pushes 'economic reform' that in reality destroys competition for smaller and non-connected companies, enhancing the power of the well-connected.

·        Use state power to crush investigations into government corruption

·        Counterbalances US Foreign Policy

Russia will play an increasingly important role in the world today as America’s policy becomes more and more odious to the civilized world. Russia will not be a democratic nation as we have (had) in many western nations. It is more likely to follow a more Chinese approach. Harsh measures against political dissent coupled with careful economic liberalization. The interesting thing to note here is that Russia has been careful not to allow the kind of mad dash of Western companies to buy up Russian resources and with it Russian politicians. This may be one reason that the chief of the Yuko’s oil conglomerate is now in prison. He was negotiating deals with western oil companies. It seems that allowing oneself to be used as a conduit for this kind of ‘foot in the door’ by western global corporations that will meet with a swift and firm hand by Russia’s power elite.  Thus, Russia’s security services are well aware of the American elite’s political and economic machinations. They will not tolerate it. Any chance at building a more secure relationship between the two was blown by the Clinton kleptocracy.

Moon’s Senate




If things weren’t bad enough in America you have reverend Sung Young Moon received by our political elite and Washington glitterati in a freakish ceremony that crowned him a kind of ‘Messiah’. This is not some little town in Podunk Illinois, this ceremony took place in the US Senate! Yet hardly a world was spoken of this on the mainstream media. Moon, who lavishes money on the GOP and the so-called Christian right, is one of the most powerful men in America. There appears to be a media blackout whenever he goes into motion on the political scene and does his work. The Christian right is very much part of his movement. Now be assured that, as a Christian, I am very much concerned as to how much influence this man has on the religious institutions that call themselves Christian. This is a man who has funded, supported and bailed out some of the biggest names in American Christianity. This is one reason why you did not hear about this on your local 'Christian' radio station. Moon has his hooks in the whole 501(c)3 Church-ianity 'shebang'. For more Click Here.



Who is running and controlling these mega-million dollar ministries, Christ or the devil? Who is setting up America’s Christians to be blamed for the atrocities committed by Bush’s financial backers? There is enormous hatred by many in the country for the so-called religious right that supports the atrocities committed by this administration. How can Christians be so deceived? How can they support such blatant evil in the name of Christ? I sincerely believe that this is a satanic-setup, we Christians may very well be blamed for Bush's crimes and feel the political and social backlash of this administration because of the close association it has with the multi-million dollar 'Christian' political machine. Ralph Reed campaigns for President Bush and used to be the chief spokesman for the so called Christian Coalition. As I write this he is going to Baptist Churches around that nation trying to get Christians to vote for Bush. This is the same Ralph Reed that goes to secret elitist gatherings that were started by the Nazi's. Christians had better wake up to the deceiving spirit that exists in American Christianity.

For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. (Jud 1:4)


But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. (2Pe 2:1)




To those of you reading this who may not be Christians and have been angry at the religious right because it supports evil rather than good; supports lies rather than truth, may I sincerely apologize to you in the name of Jesus Christ? Christ has nothing to do with this wickedness. These preachers and teachers are deceivers. The prophets of old warned that these men would come into the Church. They are now running it. Please do not get angry with God or Christ because of these Charlatans. God is love and loves truth and righteousness and deeply hates all manner of evil and lies.


These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling [words], having men's persons in admiration because of advantage. (Jud 1:16)


These men love the power and praise of the world they are there to get money for themselves and power for their master, being under the power of the prince of this world.

I know I walk a fine line when I criticize a sitting President and these so-called Church leaders as I am doing. It is not my intention to disobey the clear commandments of Christ to respect our leaders and obey them (when they do not tell us to directly disobey God). We are commanded to pray for our leaders and honor them. However that does not mean that Christians are to have such a woeful lack of discernment that they accept lies, murder, plunder and torture as being ‘Christian’ just because a televangelist says it is. If you have been fooled by these crooks check to see if you are in the faith!!



We must be wise as serpents but harmless as doves. We must obey Christ and respect authority on earth yes, but that does not mean openly supporting evil in our democratic society. We should use our votes to support righteousness not evil; truth not lies; a firm stand, not election year politicking. Being a Christian does not mean turning off your brain!

Unknown Event.

As many of you know there has been abundant speculation that some big event is expected in June. Many events were reported by a source whose identity has been clearly proven to be false. Nevertheless, many of the things that he stated was true and can be corroborated. It is very possible that something will happen in June. It can and probably will happen later. Nevertheless, I am inclined to warn each and every one who reads this that it seems clear to many on the political left and political right and most importantly by many men of God that an event of global magnitude is being planned by our elite. This event is being planned in such a way as to give more power to elite institutions such as the UN, Federal Agencies (to operate without democratic oversight such as FEMA) the G8, the G10 the Bank for International Settlements, World Bank, NATO etc.




Ten regions that may very well prove to be the final distribution of political power when the ten kings come into full power.

The aim and result of this global event will be to reduce the rights of individuals, reorganize global economic and political and even spiritual power into the hands of like-minded men whose primary interest is in personal plunder and self-elevation. I do not know when this event will happen. I think that there are certain elements among the elite that want it to happen before the November elections. Others want to distance themselves from the American administration and ‘set them adrift’ politically in order to make an example of any other leader who sets his policy so diametrically opposed to that of the transatlantic branch of the elite and there appears to be a deep split amongst them. There is real animosity towards Bush, however some of it is for the wrong reasons. Some elements on the other side of the Atlantic want to see Israel destroyed. They do not care about the Palestinians though they may make long speeches about human rights abuses and the tough Israeli policy towards daily acts of terror.

One of the most important issues is the Jews, Israel and the Arabs who refused to leave Palestine for their new homeland of Jordan, these people are also known today as Palestinians. What must be understood and kept at the forefront is that the Jews are still dear to God, though they are in rebellion and outside of Christ. They are cut off. But God can and will graft many a Jew back into his kingdom at the proper time (Read and understand Romans Chapter 11).

Groups such as the Bilderbergs and the Skull and Bones have deep ties to the Nazi’s. Indeed, the Bilderbergs were started by an ex-SS officer! How is that these men and women can meet in absolute secrecy with the world's governments providing with world's best security in the form of tanks, helicopters elite security personnel all rolled out by the nation who hosts these secret events when these meetings were started by ex Nazi’s? Who controls the Global media to such a degree that such evil associations can go on by the world’s richest and powerful and not a word be reported to the world at large. The world’s final conflagration will be about Jerusalem. Satan’s men have a plan for Jerusalem and they intend on carrying it out. It is basically the same plan that Hitler had. He wanted to rid the world of the Jews. This time the satanic elite want to rid the world of both Christian and Jew. They will bring this about and never forget this, it was men in the Skull and Bones that funded Hitler and helped tremendously in bringing him to power and assisted him during the war. It was Prescott Bush, the Presidents Grandfather that was instrumental in this task.

Eventually the elite will institute a system of worship that no Christian or Jew can accept. Christians call it the ‘mark of the beast’, it will be an abomination to the Jews and any man who refuses this worship and the mark that will go on the right hand or forehead will be killed.

And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

(Rev 13:15)


Brothers and sisters, I say in no uncertain terms that that day is not far off. There are many things that must happen first, but things have been accelerating so much lately that we must prepare our minds and souls for the coming trial.

In conclusion I would ask all of you to keep a watchful eye on these nations in the future

Iran- It will be America's greatest threat, if I read my Bible prophecy right.

Russia – It too will be a big problem for America

Switzerland – I believe that this may become the center for global finance and even global political power in the not-too-distant future

India – This is where much of the world's production and high tech industries may reside and are already moving to.

China – Same as above.

Israel – The world's final conflagration will occur here and political turmoil in and around her is something to keep your eyes on.



The above article is not fear mongering, it is what I see based on news reporting and the scriptures and I exhort all of you in the name of Jesus Christ to not be fearful, but to rejoice in the fact the Lord is coming soon! Study the word, love one another, cease from sin, forgive one another and obey the Lord and remember, we are in the world but not of it.





In Christ,

Mark Watson
