A part of Anglo-Saxon establishment sees the unleashing of a large-scale war as the best way to come out of the ongoing economic crisis – the way to global dictatorship. Paul Krugman, an influential New York Times columnist, a Nobel prize winner in economy, cautiously mentioned back in the autumn of 2011the possibility of rescuing the US and European economies by unleashing the Third World War. As the European Union Times said in August 2011 the Krugman’s idea was actively supported by Mark Faber, a CNBC economic analyst, the author of the Gloom Boom Doom Report warning about the possibility of a large scale war in future.
It would be propitious to recall Normann Dodd, a former Wall Street banker and US history scholar, who told in an interview in 1982 that influential individuals, who control the US finances, politics and government behind the certain, had actually planned the US involvement in the First World War. Talking to Edward Griffin Dodd said: «We are now at the year nineteen hundred and eight, which was the year that the Carnegie Foundation began operations. And, in that year, the trustees meeting, for the first time, raised a specific question, which they discussed throughout the balance of the year, in a very learned fashion. And the question is this: Is there any means known more effective than war, assuming you wish to alter the life of an entire people? And they conclude that, no more effective means to that end is known to humanity, than war. So then, in 1909, they raise the second question, and discuss it, namely, how do we involve the United States in a war?»
Naturally the parallels with the September 11 2001 events come to mind. Back then George Bush Jr, the President of the USA, said after the terror acts: «You’re either with us, or against us!» and intervened in Afghanistan and Iraq. In September 2001 the US economy was on the verge of collapse but the situation was rectified as a result – the public attention refocused from the US economic woes to the Middle East. The situation may repeat itself in 2012 – the terror acts, that have become part of contemporary international political scene, would make the West introduce a state of emergency. It would allow to skip the next US election and quell any social protest. Under the circumstances one may have no doubts an «Iranian trace» would inevitably emerge and the Western public would demand the respective governments take resolute actions to punish the perpetrator that Iran is doomed to be. The attack against Iran would strengthen the US position in Central Asia and the Caucasus, the Anglo-Saxons would one more time put off the economic collapse, and they’d win blackjack in the «big game» with Russia and China getting closer to their borders. This time like in 2001 the invincible, elusive and mysterious Al Qaeda would come to help. It jumps out like the devil from a snuffbox when the «global elite» needs it.
