With 2013 approaching, the crisis in Syria is about to enter its second year. Feasible solutions to the crisis seem more far removed than ever after a recent Russia – E.U. Summit in Bruxelles failed to enter into a constructive dialog about the primary causes. The influx of fundamentalist Salafist or Wahabist fighters which have been streaming to Syria since the failure of two major Free Syrian Army assaults on Aleppo in June and July 2012 made it increasingly difficult to build a coherent and credible Syrian political and military opposition among the proponents of regime-change. The international anti Syrian alliance has difficulties in identifying a political or military opposition that could be used as an argument for regime change. The conflict risks to spiral out of control with potentially catastrophic consequences for Syria, Turkey, Lebanon, the Middle East and Europe, including Russia. The international community is as divided as the Syrian opposition. The pressure is on all sides to resolve the crisis. Opinions about how to solve the crisis differ widely. The article offers the necessary analysis, suggests possible solutions and the potential consequences of a protracted and widening conflict.
National Interests and Belligerent Cartels.
This section of the article is an attempt to create an overview over the primary stakeholders national stakes within the context of belligerent cartels. In many cases there is a dichotomy between a nations approach and siding in the conflict and national security, national coherence and unity, national and regional economic interests, energy and energy security and other issues which seldom are addressed within the public discourse. These factors however, have to be taken into consideration before it is necessary to suggest feasible initiatives to resolve the crisis, or before it is possible to assess the consequences of failure to resolve the crisis peacefully. Naturally an article of this nature cannot address all nations nor all details. It can however point toward problems which have to be taken into account.
Even though the USA uses a variety of diversion strategies it is the USA which is the primary stakeholder in the Syrian crisis and the aggression against Syria. In many respects it is also one of the most vulnerable stakeholders, which explains much of its push toward a swift regime change. The USA has been outflanked in the recent decades shift away from oil and toward natural gas as the primary energy source for the next 100 – 150 years and related geo-political developments.
A Syria – like scenario has since 2007 been prepared in Myanmar´s Rakhine State. In Myanmar the attempted subversion is being marketed as inter-communal violence between the externally displaced, Bangladeshi, Muslim Rohingya and Buddhists.
In fact, the root causes of the violence in Rakhine State are similar to the root causes for the conflict in Syria. Rakhine State is the richest area in the entire Greater Mekong Region in terms of natural resources. In particular natural gas. In Myanmar two pipeline projects, a dual oil and gas pipeline from Myanmar to China and a gas pipeline from Myanmar through Bangladesh to India. US, UK and Bangladeshi energy and security requirements are not being met to the extend that had been envisioned. (1)
In the Middle East the USA has lost out on the Nabucco Pipeline project which is less profitable than the Russian South Stream pipeline. More details about these projects will be dealt with in part 6 of this article.
The discovery of the worlds greatest known natural gas field, the Pars field in the geo-politically volatile Persian Gulf between Qatar and Iran aggravated the situation of the USA with regard to dominance over the worlds primary energy resources. Notice that the value of the Petro Dollar primarily depends on the US´s ability to back the Dollar with dominance over resources.
After the discovery of the Pars gas-field in 2007, Iran, Russia, Iraq, Syria formed a cartel to build the 10 billion USD Pars pipeline which traverses all of the above mentioned countries and which is planned to end at the Syrian Mediterranean Coast. The Pars pipeline is currently completed to the outskirts of Damascus, Syria. Notice also that 2007 was the year when the global economic crisis set in. 2007 was the year when Saudi Arabia declared that the investment of the future is an investment in gas, not oil. 2007 was the year when Qatar sent 10 billion USD to the Freedom and Justice Party of Turkey´s Prime Minister R. Tayyip Erdogan. The money was earmarked for boosting the Turkish Muslim Brotherhood in preparation of a war on Syria.
Never before has the value of the Petro Dollar been as critically challenged as it is today and the USA, together with the UK, literally fighting for the survival of the Dollar and their Dollar based economies. The European Union (EU), receives between 22 % and 26 % of its natural gas from Russia. If the Pars pipeline goes on-line and Russia takes part in developing Syrian gas fields in the Eastern Mediterranean Levantine Basin, the EU may depend on Russia for up to 45 % or 50 % of its natural gas for the coming 100 to 120 years. This would prompt many continental European nations to further integrate the European and Russian energy sectors and national economies; was it not for the fact that Europeans are aware of the risk the USA poses with regard to pushing Europe and Russia into a conflict with each other. The USA has principally two choices. It can attempt to play high stakes together with Qatar and Saudi Arabia against Syria, Iran, Russia and Continental Europe.
Alternatively the USA would have to reconfigure its national economy and begin a constructive dialog and cooperation with regard to the creation of a new, preferably gold based economy and the peaceful cooperation with Russia, China, Europe, and not least Iran with regard to the energy sector. Regardless what course the USA choses, the crisis in Syria is spelling an end to the global dominance of the Petro Dollar. The question for the USA is whether it will play everything on one card, risking to draw the entire Middle East, Europe and Russia with it, or if the USA will be willing and able to withdraw from the attempted subversion of Syria peacefully and count on Russia, China and Europe to assist the USA with a peaceful transition to a new economy.
The primary obstacle with regard to a change in the USA´s approach to its Middle East policy is a powerful Israeli lobby. The possible appointment of Hagel as US Secretary of Defense could indicate a certain willingness of the Obama administration to change course, but it would be an uphill battle. So far, nothing indicates that the USA is willing to reconsider the subversion of Syria or to to surrender the dominance of the Petro Dollar peacefully and constructively.
Since the discovery of the Pars gas field in 2007 Qatar is developing into a regional superpower which is challenging Iran. Qatar is the home of the international Muslim Brotherhood. In 2007 it invested 10 billion USD in Turkey´s AKP and Muslim brotherhood to prepare the Arab Spring and the war on Syria.
Qatar is the financial muscle behind the victory of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Between 2007 and 2009 Qatar succeeded in convincing both Hamas and Al-Jamaa al-Islamiya to turn away from their alliance with Iran and Syria and to realign themselves with Qatar and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Qatar is also currently boosting the Muslim Brotherhood in Jordan, and most analysts agree that it is merely a question of time and convenient timing before King Abdullah of Jordan will be challenged by a Jordanian Arab Spring.
Qatar has been one of the principle financiers of the war on Libya and it is one of the principle financiers of the war on Syria. Since the onset of the Arab Spring in 2011 it has also significantly contributed with special forces, logistics, arms and not least mercenaries.
Qatar has tied its national security and fate to that of the USA. One of the primary reasons for Qatar´s participation in the aggressions is that Qatar is is perceiving Iran as a threat rather than a partner in the development of a shared resource. With Qatar´s national security tied to regional US and UK hegemony, Qatar is investing heavily into the attempt to save the Petro Dollar by transforming the Middle East with the prevention of the Pars gas pipeline going on-line as primary target.
In 2007 the Royal Family of Saudi Arabia and Saudi Oil cartels began investing heavily in the development of natural gas, stating that gas was the resource of the future. In fact, in early 2007 the investment in natural gas as well as into related biochemical industries was “the insider tip” at the worlds stock markets.
The situation of Saudi Arabia is similar to that of Qatar. The survival of the Saudi Royal family as despotic rulers is dependent on US and British hegemony. An imploding Petro Dollar would be equivalent to a collapse of the Saudi national economy and it would most likely lead to a popular uprising in Saudi Arabia within months.
Saudi Arabia is one of the principle sponsors of Salafist or Wahabist organizations who recruit mercenaries for Jihad in Syria. The desperation of the Saudi regime becomes evident when one considers that Saudi Arabia is committing the war crime of forced use of prisoners. A recently disclosed, official Saudi document proves that Saudi Arabia has given hundreds of prisoners from numerous countries who were sentenced to death the choice between execution or so-called Jihad in Syria. (2)
Many analysts wrongfully conclude that Turkey has the ambition to create a Neo-Ottoman Empire. It may be so that this ambition exists in the minds of certain delusional Turkish politicians but the facts are indicating the contrary to an empire; the planned balkanization of Turkey.
According to the Workers´ Party – Turkey and retired, high-ranking Turkish military officers Turkey is being used as a front-line state against Syria by the USA, the UK and Qatar. Even though it is unknown whether plans to destabilize Turkey and to divide it into smaller states will be initiated after an envisioned division of Syria or whether Turkey will have to wait until a post-Iran war period is so far unknown. What is known however, is that plans to divide Turkey into three or four smaller nations have been developed by the RAND Corporation for the US Department of Defense in 1996, and that the USA, together with elements within the AKP of Prime Minister Erdogan are actively working toward the “balkanization” of Turkey.
An eventual decision by a Turkish government to cease cooperating with the USA on the dismantling of Turkey is complicated by continental European nations own insecurities with regard to energy security and US attempts to use Europe for a conflict with Russia in an attempt to save the Dollar. (3)
Jordan has since early summer 2012 been used as a military staging area for the so-called Free Syrian Army. Prior to the two major military campaigns of the Free Syrian Army the Jordanian border town of Al-Mafriq housed approximately 23.000 Libyan fighters from the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group under the command of convicted Al-Qaeda terrorist Abedlhakim Belhadj. (4)
The Al-Mafriq region is also housing a significant number of Syrian refugees who have been fleeing the violence in Syria. Refugee camps however, are systematically misused for the recruitment, training and housing of militants. Some of this activity is organized under the command of Turkish military and intelligence officers as well as US Special Forces.
The developments are slowly beginning to spill over into Jordanian politics and the Jordanian population. The Jordanian Royal family and the Jordanian government are in fact being targeted for subversion by Qatar, the USA and not least Israel. Jordan is playing a crucial role in Israels´, the United States´, Qatar’s´, Egypt’s´, and the Muslim Brotherhoods´ long-term plans for Palestine. (5)
The Jordanian Royal Family and government are attempting to whether the storm and to secure their survival by walking a tightrope between neutrality and letting Jordanian territory be used as staging and transit area for the war on Syria. It is likely that Jordan currently is negotiating with Israel about post-Syria war cooperation with regard to Palestine.
Even though Lebanon is politically divided with regard to Syria´s regional role and Syria´s role in Lebanon, even though Lebanon is politically divided with regard to its foreign policy and Iran, France, the UK, the USA and Israel, even though attempts were made to destabilize Lebanon and to provoke sectarian violence, and even though major political power brokers in Lebanon such as Saad Hariri and his Future Movement and the leader of the Lebanese Progressive Socialist Party and the Druze community Walid Jumblatt actively support insurgents in Syria with finance, arms, intelligence and operations rooms, command structures and other aid, the situation in Lebanon remains relatively stable and calm. (6)(7)
The political and strategic influence of Hezbollah has been somewhat weakened during the initial phases of the war on Syria but it has recovered and is currently in fact strengthened. Some of this is due to the wisdom of Hassan Nasrallah and his closest advisors, some of it is caused by the fact that it is not popular among Lebanese to co-operate with Israel, and some of it, in fact much of it is caused by the sheer political incompetence of Hariri, Jumblatt and colleagues as power peddlers, lax internal security,intelligence leaks and so forth.
In case of a Turkish, NATO, or GCC military intervention in Syria it is to be expected that Hezbollah will become involved in a war against Israel and eventually also inside Syria. Limited internal violence will have to be expected but it will be limited.
The position of Lebanon as part of what is best described as the Middle Eastern alliance against imperialism and Zionism is solid. In fact Lebanon is, in spite of all reports to the contrary in western mainstream media one of the most politically stable counties in the Middle East.
With regard to the Pars pipeline project as well as gas fields in the Eastern Mediterranean, Lebanon would most likely neither suffer significant advantages or disadvantages if the regional dynamics changed. It would however, suffer disadvantages from a strengthened regional role of Israel which is a uniting factor.
Although there exists extensive literature about the first war on Iraq, some issues continue to be under emphasized; the facts that Kuwait illegally tapped into Iraq´s oil resources and that the US-Administration of President George Bush Senior set up Iraq and Saddam Hussein by giving Iraq a “green light” for a limited military operation in Kuwait to secure that Kuwait ceased drawing oil from Iraqi oil wells.
Iraq was in both so-called “Gulf Wars” set up by the USA and railroaded into a war. Although Iraq is still weakened by internal divisions, it has over the last decade become increasingly self-confident as a coherent nation state and developed increasingly friendly relations with its most important neighbor, Iran.
Iraq´s al-Malaki Administration is expressing grave concerns about the attempted subversion in Syria, which is a traditional Arab ally of Iraq. Iraq is especially expressing concerns about Saudi Arabia´s involvement. Saudi Arms smuggling routes which have been used to fuel the terrorist insurgency which has created the context of pretext for a continued US occupation for years, are now being used for Saudi arms smuggling to Salafist terrorist organizations in Syria. Iraq fears that Saudi Arabia also will attempt to destabilize Iraq, in an attempt to weaken Syria and Iran.
One example for Iraq´s position with regard to Syria is the statement of Iraq´s Prime Minister Nouri al-Malaki to the Lebanese al-Mayadeen satellite network in December 2012. Al-Malaki stated: “Qatar and Saudi Arabia which are meddling to topple the Syrian government are now doing the same meddling to topple the Iraqi regime. Their goal is overthrowing the Iraqi government. Their goal is overthrowing the Iraqi ruling system and not overthrowing me”. (8) Iraq is a parner to the Pars pipeline. The attempted subversion in Syria is directly involving Iraq, along with Iran as targeted nation.
Iran is in many respects the primary target of the attempted subversion in Syria. Iran shares the worlds largest known natural gas field with Qatar. The completion of the Pars gas pipeline would bring Iran into a position where it, together with Russia, would control 40 % to 50 % of the natural gas that will be consumed in the European Union for the next 100 to 120 years. The completion of the Pars pipeline would also significantly weaken the US Dollar.
These two factors combined would endorse Iran with a significant political, economical and security leverage with regard to volatile issues such as Israel´s occupation of Palestine and the Syrian Golan Highs, the lack of inspections of Israel´s nuclear program at Dimona and Israel’s nuclear weapons, Iran´s development of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, regulation of the value of the EURO and the US Dollar, the NATO presence in Afghanistan beyond 2024 and a wide range of other issues with regional or global consequence. (9)
The key for attaining this influence for Iran is Syria and the completion of the Pars gas pipeline from Iran, via Iraq and Syria to the Eastern Mediterranean. Iran is acutely aware of the fact that it is the primary target of the attempted subversion in Syria. Its own national security and integrity depending on a stable, Iran friendly Syria, it cannot afford not to respond militarily to an overt military aggression against Syria.
Together with the USA and the UK, Israel is among the primary beneficiaries of a destabilization of Syria and of the Arab Spring. The “increased risk” which Israel states, that it would experience from Muslim Brotherhood governments in Egypt, Jordan or Syria, as well as the proposed increased threat from Salafist terrorist organizations is grossly exaggerated.
In fact it is exaggerated to the extend that it would be more correct to state that it is invented as a public relations exercise. Traditionally neither the Muslim Brotherhood, other than the partially questionable Hamas, nor Salafist terror organizations like Al Qaeda are significant threats to Israel´s security.
To the contrary, Israel stands to profit from the Muslim Brotherhood government in Egypt and the planned establishment of a free trade zone in the Sinai. Israel stands to gain from the joint Hamas, Egyptian move toward the establishment of a separate Palestinian state in Gaza. Israel stands to gain from a planned establishment of a future Muslim Brotherhood controlled Jordan and the establishment of Jordanian controlled Palestinian micro enclaves. Israel stands to gain from the permanent annexation of Eastern Jerusalem and the greatest parts of the West Bank in response. (10)
Israel stands to gain from a permanent annexation of the Syrian Golan. Israel stands to gain from a weakened Hezbollah and a weakened Lebanon. Israel also stands to gain from a war on Syria, because the fall of Syria would allow it to share the exploration of Palestinian gas resources in the Mediterranean with Egypt and is likely to also become part of co-opted or stolen Syrian gas resources if the attempted subversion in Syria succeeds.
Most significantly however, Israel would stand to gain from a weakened Iran which does not have increased leverage over US and EU foreign policy decisions, the value of the US Dollar and the EURO, and so forth. ( ibid.) In fact Israel is the primary beneficiary of the destabilization of Syria.
Russia and Continental Europe
Russia has drawn and had to draw a red line in Syria. The economic survival of both Russia and the European Union depend to a high degree on the continued integration of the Russian and European national economies and markets. Many continental European governments are, together with Russia, investing heavily into this development. This development would naturally include the further integration of the Russian and European energy sectors.
The negative outcome of a Russian – E.U. summit in Belgium in December 2012 strongly indicates that Europe is too intimidated by the US/UK drive toward a Middle Eastern, and if necessary European war to dare continue along the route of further integration of the Russian and European economies.
Many continental European nations perceive the destabilization as a US/UK attempt to drive a wedge in between Russia and continental Europe. A recent bomb threat in Bonn, Germany is by many analysts understood as a US/UK threat against the German government; a threat that is meant to be understood as “close ranks or else”. (ibid.)
Whether the USA and UK, together with Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Israel are successful with this policy depends to a large degree on whether the US/UK/GCC/Zionist alliance succeeds at dragging Europe and Russia into a regional war in the Middle East. It is certain that neither the USA nor the UK would hesitate to manufacture a European war in case continental Europe does not close ranks behind the US/UK Hegemony and the US Dollar would be seriously threatened by European policies.
Preparations for War.
The developments over the last weeks of December 2012 are clearly indicating that a war on Syria is being prepared. The deployment of Patriot missile systems along the Turkish Syrian border and Russian counter moves. The deployment of US Carriers to the Eastern Mediterranean and the repositioning of parts of Russia´s Baltic fleet to the Eastern Mediterranean. The increased political grandstanding of Britain’s David Cameron, that the Assad Regime had to be ousted “by all means necessary”.
The repeated propaganda and misinformation about the Syrian military´s use of chemical weapons and ballistic missiles against Syrians, the deployment of US troops in Jordan, indicate a continuation of the escalation. Whether it is planned or not, if the trend continues, it will at some point reach a dynamic where a widening of the war becomes inevitable.
Egypt rejects IMF and Indicated Historical Realignment
Egypt has rejected that it is seeking an IMF loan and states that the North African nation is facing an international plot. Analysts expect a historical political realignment of Egypt, unseen since the country realigned itself, away from the Soviet Union and towards the USA in the early 1970s.
Myanmar, Gas and the Soros-Funded Explosion of A Nation State.
Early 2012 violent clashes between Muslim Rohingya and Buddhists broke out in Myanmar´s Rakhine State which is bordering to Bangladesh. In 2011 Myanmar ended 49 years of military rule. It is slowly implementing political, social, legal and economical reforms. It has been troubled by supposed ethnic conflicts for decades; Remnants of the British Divide and Conquer Strategy, aggravated by world war two and modo-colonial influences. It is the most rich country in the greater Mekong region in terms of natural resources. Yet it is one of the lowest ranking on the Social Development Index.
The end of military rule opened the doors for western corporations, NGOs, think-tanks, human rights organizations and to a greater influence of UN Agencies. Many of them, UN-agencies included, are associated to and sponsored by the likes of the self-proclaimed philanthropist and multi-billionaire George Soros. Together they establish a loosely associated network, consisting of new local players and well established international players who are notorious for exploding targeted nations into ethnic violence. Their philanthropy and advocacy for freedom, democracy and human rights has left a trail of ethnic violence, death and devastation from Bosnia and Kosovo to Nepal. Is Myanmar´s geo-strategically significant location, a planned gas-pipeline, and its wealth in resources turning Myanmar into the next target for globalization and the strategic encirclement of China?
Independence and Common Denominators of Modo-Colonialism .
Myanmar became independent from British colonial rule in 1948. Two wars of global reach had depleted European nations military and economies. Maintaining colonial administrations had become too costly, cumbersome, expensive and unfeasible. The divide and conquer strategy of colonialism had left the newly independent Myanmar to cope with internal conflicts which are still devastating national coherence, stability, peace as well as economical, social and political development. The 49 years of military rule in Myanmar were in fact a by product of western modo-colonialism and a nations defense against a protracted subversion.
After the end of the cold war, the peaceful transfer of Hon-Kong to Chinese rule, the gradual transformation of the Chinese economy, and the expansion of the Chinese economy into the markets of former western colonies in Africa and Asia, the internal conflicts in Myanmar acquired new dimensions. The meta-dimensions of a US/NATO ambition for global, full spectrum dominance, the dimension of Myanmar´s natural resources, the dimension of a gas-pipeline project, and the meta-dimensions of Myanmar as a nation that is being targeted as part of the US/NATO strategic encirclement of China.
Every western-backed subversion common denominators. The involvement of foreign nations, the instrumentalization of local elements, and the goal to control resources, economy, and geo-politically as well as strategically significant locations. The product is internal conflict based on diversity and the manufacturing of a crisis that lends apparent legitimacy to calls for political, economic or military interventions. Western media manufacture popular consent for interventions by eliciting a fabled advocacy for stability, human rights and democracy. Stability and human rights are the modern propagandists tool for manufacturing apparent legitimacy for aggressive modo-colonial subversion, invasion, long-term military presence and control. The strategy has been successfully implemented in Bosnia and Kosovo. In 2010 and 2011 it was successfully implemented in Ivory Coast and Libya.i It is currently being used against Syria and fermented and Nepal.ii It has been fermented in Myanmar for decades and the recent violent clashes, supposedly between the 2012 clashes between the Muslim Rohingya and Buddhists signal that yet another attempt is made to explode the country.
The ethnic or religious violence between the Rohigya and Buddhists in 2012 is, as it will become evident below, a function of western imperialists to destabilize Burmese national reconciliation and to derail attempts to find a Burmese and Asian solution for Myanmar´s problems within a the regional framework of ASEAN. The policy of obstructing an ASEAN, Myanmar, Thailand, China brokered solution began being implemented by the USA during the administration of G.W. Bush. As we will see below, the Bush administration was involved in an attempted subversion in Rakhine State in collusion with intelligence services of Bangladesh and Pakistan. While the entire nation is targeted for subversion the specific function of the clashes however, is to gain control over Rakhine State and its abundant oil and gas resources.
Ethnic Awareness in Myanmar, the Root Causes for Ethnic Awareness and Conflict in Myanmar, and the Obstruction of National Consolidation of Myanmar within a Regional Paradigm by US/NATO Imperialism.
Myanmar can look back at a more than one thousand year long history as empire and nation. In fact it can be argued that Myanmar, even though several ethnic groups are represented in it, has developed an actual national identity and national awareness long before the first European nation states were created. A national awareness based on ethnicity developed first after years of British colonial rule. It was fermented and aggravated by Britain as a standard colonialist instrument for social and political control.
The first to develop national awareness based on so-called ethnicity were the Burman and the Karen during the early 1900s. The development resulted in ethnic groups demanding representation within various colonial institutions that were being introduced by the British. One could argue the British genius of making the Burmese people themselves demand the institutionalization of colonialists primary instrument of control.
National awareness along ethnic lines was heightened during the 1930s development of ultra nationalism in Germany, Italy and Japan and the Japanese-Thai occupation of Myanmar. The developments during colonialism and world war two resulted in agony between Japanese-fostered anti western and partially anti-Chinese ethnicity based nationalism in i.e. Burman, Shan, Rakhine, and an Allied-fostered ethnicity based nationalism in Karen and Kachin.
The majority of the ruling elite in the Karen State are either Christians or have close ties to Christian communities and Britain. Many Burmese considered the Karen elite as collaborators with the colonialists and during the Japanese-Thai occupation of Myanmar many of them were persecuted. This situation was exacerbated due to the fact that the British, when leaving Myanmar, negotiated a settlement with the non-communist former Japanese allies. It came to armed clashes between Karen and mainly Burman militia. Infighting began as an artifact of colonialism and the occupation of Myanmar by Japan. The tragic reality of post-colonial and post-war Myanmar is that the still ongoing violence in Karen State and other regions has nothing whatsoever to do with ethnicity or ethnicity based nationalism.
The conflict, including the countless death and maimed, the decades of suffering of Karen in refugee camps in Thailand, the devastating impact of the conflict on social and political development and for the national coherence and security of Myanmar are an artifact of foreign colonial and occupying powers cynical use of the divide and conquer strategy. On a positive note, it may well be the recognition of this fact that holds the key to national reconciliation.
There is no doubt that atrocities, human rights violations, and serious crimes have been committed on all sides of the decades long conflicts. One-sided western criticism of the military government and the new civilian government in Myanmar however, do not contribute to conflict resolution and national reconciliation. It transpires with ever more clarity that this criticism is not intended to contribute to reconciliation. On the contrary, as it will become evident below, further conflicts are being fermented with the aid of foreign interests, domestic players, United Nations Agencies, including the Soros funded UN Framework Team for Preventive Action, and western funded NGOs which are notorious for justifying western sanctions and interventions on the basis of the very conflicts they manufacture and aggravate.
Myanmar, Gas/Oil-Pipelines and Explosive Energy.
Myanmar is currently involved in two international pipeline projects which to a certain degree are in competition with each other. The Myanmar-Bangladesh-India (MBI) pipeline project which is transporting gas from Myanmar to Bangladesh and India, and the dual Oil&Gas China-Myanmar pipelines.
Due to a lack of convergence in the energy and security needs of India and Bangladesh the MBI project was initially met with considerable resistance from Bangladesh. Bangladesh considered that the deliveries of gas to India threatened both the energy and security needs of Bangladesh. Bangladesh first agreed to the project in 2010, after new and more accurate estimates of the available gas reserves had been accumulated, and after a new contract had been negotiated.
Another motivating factor for Bangladesh to finally agree to the MBI project in 2010 is the fact that the China-Myanmar pipeline project reduced the available amount of gas reserves for export to Bangladesh and India. While the first project, the MBI has predominantly regional implications, the second project, the China-Myanmar dual Oil&Gas pipeline, is not well perceived by western energy cartels and the US-Administration whom the project causes grave concerns with regards to the US/NATO strategic encirclement of China. The pipeline is considered yet another in China´s “String of Pearls”, as a defense department commissioned study calls China´s regional interests.iii
In 2012 violent clashes erupted in Rakhine State; supposedly between the predominantly Muslim Rohingya who are demanding that they no longer be considered as foreigners and refugees, and that Myanmar should grant them Burmese citizenship, and Buddhists who supposedly want to oppress the Rohingya´s legitimate aspirations. Among the victims of the violence were Rohingya, Buddhists as well as Burmese police and security forces.
As already discussed above, non of the presumably ethnic conflicts that have destabilized Myanmar for decades were or are ethnic conflicts. An analysis of the supposedly religious and ethnic conflict between the Rohingya and Buddhists will show that the causes of the violence and conflict have nothing whatsoever to do with religion or ethnicity, and that this conflict shares a common denominator with all other internal conflicts in Myanmar. Foreign influences that use internal factors to destabilize the country.
To gain an in depth understanding of the so-called Rohingya – Buddhist violence it is necessary to briefly review the recent history of Bangladesh, its transformation from secular state to Islamic state , the interplay between internal developments and the US/CIA war on the USSR, the rise of Islamic extremism in Afghanistan and Bangladesh, and the position of the Rohingya within this context.
The development of a feasible model for conflict resolution, which necessarily must take cultural, humanitarian, as well as security concerns of Myanmar into account is not possible without a prior analysis of this context.
Social Injustice in Bangladesh, The US-Manufacturing of Islamist Terrorism, Abuse of the Rohingya for the Subversion of Myanmar and the Strategic Encirclement of China.
After a protracted war with Pakistan the largely secular and nationalist forces in Bangladesh won independence in 1971. In 1972 Bangladesh received its first constitution. It was based on democratic principles, nationalism, human rights and secularism. Strong forces within the powerful military of Bangladesh however, soon embarked on a project of turning the secular state into an despotic Islamic state. The project was opposed by both the majority of nationalists, secularists, as well as by the many of the religious communities in the country.
During the twentieth century Bangladesh experienced internal conflicts based on social issues. The conflicts developed into ethnic, racial and religious conflicts. The country had previously experienced considerable violence based on ethnic, religious and social issues.
Racial, ethnic and religious violence resulted in the encouragement of migration as well as the forced displacement of segments of the population. The Islamic elites anti-secularism of that period spilled over into the post-liberation military as well as into domestic politics of the newly created state of Bangladesh. As usual in such situations neither the ordinary peaceful Muslim, Hindu, Secular or other segments of the population had much or any influence on this development. In fact, secularism and tolerance for religious diversity had been practiced in the region for centuries.
Dictators as well as nationalist politicians began abusing Islam as instrument of social and political control and for consolidating power structures. The abuse of Islam for consolidating political power and a decade long Maoist insurrection in western Bangladesh created the basis for the development of radical Islamic movements in rural districts.
Radicalized Islamist movements began receiving substantial funding from Saudi-Arabia and oil-billionaires who funded the spread of the radical and extremist Wahabi branch of Islam. Also the Qatar-based international wing of the Muslim Brotherhood soon became active in Bangladesh, financing, recruiting, arming and training youth for Jihad.
Bangladesh developed into a hot-bed of militant Islamic movements and a major exporter of Jihadi idealists and mercenaries. During the war against the USSR backed Democratic Republic of Afghanistan thousands of Bangladeshi youth were recruited for Holy War against “the infidels”. Many of them were recruited into the CIA created Al-Qaeda network led by Osama bin Ladin. The facilitators of the recruitment were the CIA, the Pakistani ISI as well as the Military Intelligence Service of Bangladesh, DGFI.
The recruitment potential for young “Freedom Fighters” in Bangladesh was enormous. Being one of the lowest ranking nations on the Social Development Index and with lack of access to adequate education for the socio-economically under-privileged and staggering unemployment rates, Bangladesh was to become one of the primary exporters of Al-Qaeda operatives and mercenaries. Many of them were then, and still are unwittingly recruited into fighting wars on behalf of US/NATO-Imperialism.
The DGFI´s involvement in Afghanistan began accumulating vast sums of revenues from the lucrative drugs and arms trade. In 1978, expecting that the military government of neighboring Myanmar was weakened by internal conflicts, aware of the fact that the neighboring Rakhine State was rich in natural gas and oil resources, and aware of the fact that the previously very small population of Rohingya in Rakhine State had grown in numbers due to a large influx of Rohingya who had been displaced during the internal conflicts in Bangladesh in 1943, the DGFI embarked on the mission of radicalizing the Rohingya in Rakhine State. The goal was the establishment of a Rohingya State with a Bangladesh controlled proxy-government that would give Bangladesh access to Myanmar´s rich oil and gas reserves in the region.
The criminal abuse of the displaced Bangladeshi Rohingya population in Rakhine State had the direct approval of the USA.
The plan was designed by the Military Leader of Bangladesh, General Ziaur Rahman with assistance from the CIA. The execution of the subversion was delegated to Brigadier general Nurul Islam Shishu. Diplomatic ties between Myanmar and Bangladesh froze when Myanmar expelled the military attache of Bangladesh and the Burmese military forced many of the militant Rohingya to flee back to Bangladesh. Atrocities were committed on both sides. The government of Myanmar however, was positioned as the villain by western governments and became the focus point of a western media coverage which at best can be described as one sided and less euphemistically as well designed propaganda to cover up the fact that the USA and Bangladesh had criminally abused a refugee population to manufacture a subversion. The situation escalated in border clashes.
If Bangladesh was a hot-bed of terrorism then, after the so-called war on terror and the war on Afghanistan, Bangladesh became one of the primary bases of operations of Al-Qaeda. Al Qaeda operatives and mercenaries from Bangladesh were among other involved in missions in the Ache province of Indonesia, Afghanistan, Bosnia, Myanmar, Chechnya, Egypt, India, Kashmir, Tajikistan.
The coordination is mainly organized through the Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islam network, (HuJI). Besides these operations, Al-Qaeda fighters recruited via Bangladesh took part in the successful 2011 NATO/GCC backed subversion of Libya, and they are currently taking part in the ongoing subversion of the Syrian Arab Republic. Both the US´s CIA and DIA, Pakistan´s ISI and the DGFI play significant roles in coordinating Al-Qaeda operations via Bangladesh, although deteriorating ties between Pakistan and the USA have reduced the role of the ISI and contributed to an influx of Al-Qaeda operatives in Bangladesh.
The fermenting of a new subversion in Myanmar´s Rakhine State is among other organized through Rohingya camps of the militant, intelligence supervised Rohingya Solidarity Organization (RSO) in Bangladesh. The camps have experienced a significant influx of Al-Qaeda associated Islamist organizations and fighters. The 2012 violence in Rakhine State can not be understood independently from its causes. The above mentioned dimensions are also a precondition for fully understanding the role of Aung San Suu Kyi, international and Burmese media, NGOs and UN-Agencies in the attempted subversion.
Myanmar, Political reforms in a targeted nation.
The primary problem for the former military and present civilian government in Myanmar could be reduced to the following. Lack of political, social, legal and economical reform and development is reinforcing the subversion. Much needed reforms increase the likelihood of a successful subversion. Lack of pluralistic or more representative political processes have resulted in the permeation of political, administrative, legal, economical and other systems by military and military associated cartels. Reforms will be met with inertia from those who are the beneficiaries of these structures. The political influence of the military stands between a successful subversion and national sovereignty, integrity, security and genuine reform. Implementing political reforms under such circumstances is not only extremely difficult but also inherently dangerous for national security.
The case of Aung San Suu Kyi is a prime example for how the attempted subversion of a nation drives a political opposition into the camp of the subversion, and how the subversion influences a political opposition. No other case in recent history is in fact more exemplary for this interplay. The prospect of implementing peaceful political reforms in Myanmar has suffered considerably from it for decades. In the West, Aung San Suu Kyi is the most prominent Burmese pro-democracy and human rights activist. Western governments and media have made her into an icon of freedom. A heroin under house arrest, Nobel Peace Laureate and into a “beacon of hope” for freedom and democracy in Myanmar.
In fact, Suu Kyi has been developed into a franchise or icon under whose banner it is possible to position the government of Myanmar as villains while waging an undeclared war on the country. From a Public Relations perspective it was a disaster for the military government to keep Suu Kyi under house arrest. From the perspective of national security she would have been of grave danger to the country´s national coherence, stability and security had she been released before a peaceful transition to a civilian government could be safely implemented. Unless Suu Kyi and her party are willing and able to adjust to the reforms by re-aligning their policy towards national sovereignty and regional integration of Myanmar, Suu Kyi and the party will remain a threat to national sovereignty as well as national and regional security.
Whether one supports her or not, Aung San Suu Kyi has been and will be playing a significant role in the politics of Myanmar. Her position, function and influence can only be understood and used to the benefit of Myanmar when it is being taken into account that she is both representing a consortium of power-brokers who are trying to destabilize Myanmar, and that she is a willing victim, but never the less a victim of circumstances. The circumstances of being a prolific politician in a country that has had a repressive government because it was under attack. The circumstance of having been targeted as asset as much as she herself needed those whose interest it is to destabilize Myanmar.
The next coming years will show if Suu Kyi is able and willing to abandon some of the most subversive of the allies that have supported her over the last decades or not. Her decisions will be crucial for how swiftly comprehensive reforms can be implemented safely. Sadly it looks as if the subversive network, reaching from the US-State Department over the United Nations to the National Endowment for Democracy, Human Rights Watch, and a cohort of Soros-Funded NGOs has such a degree of control over Suu Kyi and her party, that it will be virtually impossible for them to work for the best interest of Myanmar and its national integrity and security, even if she wanted to.
Suu Kyi´s main sponsor over the last decades is the George Soros. In 2012 George Soros opened his first office in Myanmar.iv Soros stated that he has had talks with “Pro-Democracy Leader Suu Kyi” and that they had agreed that he would open the office. The full bearing of this “deal” becomes evident when having a look at the range of organizations, initiatives and agencies in Burma which are Soros-Funded.
Soros-Funded organizations in Myanmar include, the Open Society Foundation, Mizzima News, Burma News International, Human Rights Watch, Initiatives to promote the education of young journalists, stipends for students, fellowships at institutes which are notorious for their involvement in subversion and not to forget, UN-Agencies.
Other organizations in support of Suu Kyi are Amnesty International, whose Director for Amnesty International USA, Suzanne Nozzel, is Hillary Clinton´s and the US State Departments adviser for NGO – Governmental relations, the Clinton Global Initiative, and the Burma Campaign UK, whose 2006 report clearly shows that it is financed by the very globalist forces that are targeting Burma for subversion.v
How all pervasive this globalist, predominantly Soros-Funded network against Myanmar is and how it interfaces with the radicalization of the Rohingya via Bangladesh and Bangladesh supervised and sponsored Al-Qaeda operatives and mercenaries becomes evident when having a closer look at the track record of the also Soros-Funded United Nations Interagency Framework Team for Preventive Action, short FT. vi
The Soros-Funded Framework Team is a UN-Agency which is overseeing the cooperation of UN-Agencies on international, regional and national levels. It is also supervising and coordinating the interplay and cooperation between UN-Agencies and NGOs such as Human Rights Watch, the Open Society Foundation, Amnesty International, Burma Campaign and numerous others. The FT has been instrumental in the fermenting and explosion of ethnic violence in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Today that FT is actively involved in fermenting ethnic and religious violence in Nepal, Myanmar and numerous other targeted nations.
Example Nepal. To provide an understanding of how the UN Framework Team for Preventive Action is complicit in the fermenting and exploding ethnic and religious violence in targeted nations Nepal is a prime example and worth investigating in great detail.
In 2006 a protracted armed popular struggle for political reforms in Nepal ended successfully with the victory of the United Communist Party of Nepal – Maoist against the Nepali Monarchy. A pluralistic and representative form of government was installed, elections held, in which the party won over 40 % of the parliamentary seats. Other communist parties were represented in a coalition government. The former centralist governmental structures should be reformed, power delegated to regions and communities. A commission was formed and the UN Framework Team became involved. The amount of UN-Agencies and NGOs that became involved in Nepal grew exponentially.
Nepal has a hundreds of years old history of tolerant and peaceful co-existence of ethnic and religious communities. Over 100 religions and 300 casts are represented in the country. With the “help” of the UN Framework Team for Preventive Action and NGOs which lobbied for an ethnicity and religion based “fair distribution of landownership”, such as NEFIN, the population was made suspicious and envious of each other. In fact, the very same head of the FT in Nepal, Ian Martin, is the person who has been responsible for the same subversion strategy in Bosnia Herzegovina where it resulted in serious ethnic violence and civil war.
An originally planned six districts plan for Nepal was opposed. Eleven regions were suggested. The problem is, that regardless how one divides Nepal along ethnic and religious lines there will always be elements of one group being a minority within the supposed “territory or the other”. Ethnic violence erupted in Nepal, implemented with the aid of CIA associated Islamic extremists and in collusion with the UN Drug Agency. It is precisely the same model, and precisely the same Soros-Funded network of UN-Agencies and loosely associated NGOs, as well as Al-Qaeda associated, intelligence controlled network of Islamic extremists that is behind the eruption of the violence in Rakhine State and the planned subversion of Myanmar.
2012 Violence in Rakhine State and Involvement of UN-Employees.
The violence in Rakhine State, supposedly between Muslim Rohingya and Buddhists, has been planned and executed in collusion between the Al-Qaeda associated Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islam (HuJI) and the Rohingya Solidarity Organization. The basis of operations for these organizations and for the violence are Rohingya camps in Bangladesh. Both organizations as well as the camps are under supervision of Bangladesh´s intelligence service, DGFI. The violence has been incited in an attempt to destabilize regional gas-pipeline projects which contradict the energy policy of Bangladesh and the US/NATO strategic encirclement of China.
July 2012 authorities in Rakhine State arrested two UN Employees. Although the reason for their arrest was kept as quiet as possible by both the United Nations and the government of Myanmar to avoid a diplomatic scandal, it is a well established fact that the UNHCR and the WFP employees were working as intelligence agents for a foreign nation and that both were directly involved in the manufacturing and aggravation of the so-called ethnic clashes.
On 27 August 2012 both were sentenced by a court in Maungdaw, Myanmar. The United Nations insists that the two are treated in accordance with all applicable international conventions and immunities they may be entitled too. Immunity however, is not applicable when UN-Staff has abused the privileges that are granted to the United Nations for espionage and the subversion of a nations territorial sovereignty. The arrest and subsequent sentencing of the UN staffers indicates that the government of Myanmar is self-confident and signaling that it will not accept a Bosnia-Herzegovina or Nepal style subversion of national sovereignty by manufacturing ethnic or religious violence. It is also a healthy indication of Myanmar´s functioning anti-terrorism and counter-insurgency structures. It has after all, had decades with foreign backed terrorism and subversion to develop them.
Solving “The Rohingya Problem” and Protecting National Sovereignty and Human Rights.
Even many otherwise progressive western intellectuals who are aware of the complexity of international, state-sponsored terrorism operations, such as Arabist and Islamologist Dr. Kevin Barret are making blanketing statements about “the Muslim – Buddhist Clashes” about “The Rohingya” and about “The Brutal Regime”. In a recent article, The US rewarding Myanmar for massacring Muslims, published by Iran´s Press TV on 26 August, Prof. Kevin Barret wrote something to the effect of: “The Rohingya should just bee granted citizenship which they are entitled to under international law. That will solve the problem for the Rohingya and Myanmar. Muslims and Buddhists ought to unite against fanaticism driven nationalism of the regime”.vii Blanketing statements, demands, and subsequent calls for public action against the government of Myanmar such as those of Dr. Barret are symptomatic for a misinformed US-American and western public and representative for numerous western scholars simplistic approach to conflict resolution. Moreover, these blanketing statements and demands reenforce the problem rather than offering constructive and feasible solutions.
Primary Considerations for Conflict Resolution Models.
Myanmar´s Rakhine State has had a population of Muslim Rohingya for centuries. The vast majority of these Rohingya is well integrated into Myanmar´s society and they enjoy the rights which follow with citizenship of Myanmar, including religious freedom. This population is suffering as much as any other of Myanmar´s citizens from the political, social and economical consequences of decades of conflicts and sanctions.
The Rohingya which fled to Myanmar during the social, ethnic and religious violence in Bangladesh during the 1940s have partially been integrated into the civil society of Myanmar. The majority however, is living in both formal and informal refugee camps in Rakhine State. They enjoy protection under international law as well as Burmese law as refugees. Myanmar has no obligation under international law to blanketing grants of citizenship to this population. There is no doubt that the condition of many refugee populations throughout the world is tragic but the problem of displacement due to violence is not solved by sweeping measures such as automatically granting citizenship in host nations.
Taking into account that Bangladesh previously has attempted to establish a Rohingya State on Myanmar´s territory and to install a proxy-government to control Myanmar´s oil and gas resources makes considerations about the status of the Rohingya refugee population in Myanmar particularly complex and difficult.
The average Rohingya refugee in Myanmar is most certainly not served by imposing additional hardships on them by unleashing a CIA/DGFI supervised Al-Qaeda insurgency which forces the government of Myanmar to implement sharper controls with the refugee population. The unethical and criminal abuse of human rights by western governments, UN-agencies and NGOs to cover over insurgencies and subversion and to justify sanctions and interventions is not solving the problems of the Rohingya and imposing the danger of victimizing them as pawns in a covert war on them.
A resolution to the Rohingya´s problem in Myanmar can not be found without clarifying the role of Bangladesh, the UN, western intelligence services, and state sponsored terrorism in Bangladesh. Any constructive suggestions for resolving the problems of the Rohingya must take the underlying causes for their situation into account. Failing to take these underlying causes into account would in deed be failing the Rohingya and the People of Myanmar.
Mystery about Germany´s Gold in the US Solved
Nobody wants to admit it openly. The German Gold Reserves in the United States are gone, used for financing the United States war chest and bet for “Global Full Spectrum Dominance”. So why is even the German Federal Bank trying to avoid further speculation by referring to a non-existent “full transparency” ? The answer is quite simple. Nobody wants the current backwardation of the gold market to turn into a permanent backwardation of the gold market. The consequence would be the inevitable collapse of global trade and civilization as we know it.
nsnbc international report from April 2013 “in the money” – “to take to the bank”. In April 2013, nsnbc international published a report by nsnbc contributor, Prof. Long Xinming, revealing that the German government had asked to visit the vaults of the US Federal Reserve to determine the actual existence of the German gold reserves.
Germany has deposited about half of its gold reserves in the USA. The FED refused to permit Germany to examine its own gold, stating “security” and “no room for visitors” as reasons. Nothing else.
When Germany finally was “permitted” an audit, the auditors were admitted into the vault´s anté chamber where 5 or 6 gold bars were shown to them as “representative for Germany´s holdings”.
The German auditors apparently returned a second time, when the FED granted them permission to “look into” 1 of 9 rooms without allowing them to enter or touch the gold, before the auditors were sent back home to Germany. The report on nsnbc prompted worldwide discussions.
In July 2013, the US American hedge-fund manager William Kaye created a stir when he picked-up the ball, stating:
” Germany won´t ever see its gold again…… Central Banks, such as the FED, where most of the reserves had been deposited, had lent the gold to U.S. Banks such as Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan.
The gold has been used in the market to lower the gold price and the FED has received securities in exchange…. Germany won´t ever see that gold again, because it is safely kept in my accounts and the accounts of our investors”.
William Kaye, who previously has been working for Goldman Sachs is by no means a “nobody” on the global markets, and the fact that his statement caused a stir was less surprising than the surprise non-insiders got when they heard the news about Germany´s gold. In fact, nsnbc´s initial report was doubted by many but was, as it turned out right “in the money”, one could, so to speak, take our report to the bank.
German Federal Bank. A Real Embarrassment and Non-Existent Transparency. Not surprisingly either, is the fact that the situation became an embarrassment for the German Federal Bank, Deutsche Bundesbank (DB).
A DB speaker said, that the Deutsche Bundesbank told the German financial publication “Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten” (German Market News), that the DB does not want to comment on the statement and referred to the full transparency which it had provided about the German gold reserves in January 2013. “The situation” said the DB spokesperson, “has remained unchanged since then”. The statement however, was only 50 % true. The true 50 % of the statement is, that the Deutsche Bundesbank does not want to comment.
The untrue 50 % is the statement about the purported full transparency which the DB has provided in January 2013. While it is understandable that it is an embarrassment that one´s purported “ally“, whom many Germans consider more of a political, economical, cultural and not to forget military occupier rather than an ally, has the audacity to put Germany´s auditors off with “no place for visitors” and shows them 1 of 9 chambers, “but don´t enter and touch” after protests from Berlin, is understandable.
After all, no German functionary would ever be allowed to, and no German politician in his right mind would ever dare to say, that “Germany still has not regained its full sovereignty”without risking the carrier – or more.
But talking about full transparency is equivalent to literally ask for trouble from one´s compatriots.
The demand that Germany repatriate its physical gold reserves is becoming increasingly outspoken, and not only among German patriots and conservatives like Member of Parliament for the Christian Social Union, CSU, Peter Gauweiler.
After all, it can hardly have escaped the DB spokesperson and German as well as international observers, that Germany´s Federal Accounting Office has issued a statement in late 2012, in which it criticized the Deutsche Bundesbank because it had not ever had any of its staff to personally audit the German gold reserves abroad. That is, “Not Ever”.
No Audit of German Reserves “Ever”. Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten (German Market News) also asked the DB spokesperson whether any of the German Federal Bank´s officials has ever taken to Paris or the USA to personally audit the German gold reserves. The DB spokesperson replied, or rather tried to avoid answering the question, saying:
“The Deutsche Bundesbank has, with regard to the storage, appropriate storage and deposit contracts with those Central Banks with whom the gold is being deposited”.
He then added, that these contracts, however, were subject to confidentiality, and by the way, he added,
“the Chair for Cash, Settlements and Payment Systems of the Deutsche Bundesbank, Carl-Ludwig Thiele had said in January that he had been there”.
Given this answer, the journalist probably knew that his job would be entering the “Danger Zone” if he would have asked:
” Was there ? Where ? In France ? In New York ? Did Herr Carl-Ludwig Thiele inspect the gold and how much was there ? Is it documented anywhere ? Can I see a copy ? I mean, we are speaking about full transparency right ? ”
An ode to independent media! So, the poor German journalist could keep his job, the Bundesbank spokesperson was proud about his evasive PR skills and that he could keep his job, and we remain in the dark. Everybody is happy. Right ? Business as usual !
The effect of the Deutsche Bundesbank´s complicity in covering-up the obvious theft of Germany´s gold reserves by Germany´s occupying ally USA, the United States blatant arrogance in dealing with his “Trans-Atlantic Partners in Germany” however is beginning to backfire.
How much longer the scandal can be contained is becoming increasingly questionable, and Germans begin to organize themselves to demand the repatriation of the country´s gold reserves.
A group of renown Germans, including the member of the European Taxpayers Association, Rolf Baron von Hohenhau, Peter Boehringer of the German Precious Metals Society, M.P. Frank Scäffler, Author and former IBM Germany CEO, Prof. Hans O. Henkel, Ralf Flier, the Editor in Chief of Smart Investor Magazine, and numerous others have organized themselves in the Association “Repatriate Our Gold” (Holt unser Gold Heim)
The Co-Initiator of the Initiative, Peter Boehringer, states that he considers it absolutely plausible, that the German gold reserves no longer exist within the USA in terms of physical gold bars. Moreover, Boehringer states, that one can strongly suspect it. Boehringer concludes:
“We do believe the Deutsche Bundesbank in its statements, but we do not believe that the Bundesbank can believe what its contractual partners say. The Deutsche Bundesbank simply cannot be sure, that the gold reserves still are present at the FED in the form of gold bars” .
“The Bundesbank does not even officially claim this, or cannot prove the physical presence according to appropriate principles of accounting. The Bundesbank has officially informed us, that the depots and Partner Central Banks have a marvelous integrity, and that the doubts, which we have forwarded in the form of questions, are unsubstantiated”.
He then, correctly remarks the fact which the Bundesbank obviously attempts to omit, which is, that the FED has not performed any official audit of its gold holdings since 1953, and the fact that the Americans they don´t even trust the FED. Ask any US citizen in any major city in the USA and ask: “Can the FED be trusted?”. If you can ask the question with a straight face, people will either believe that you are retarded or that you are part of a new “Candid Camera show”.
Repatriate Our Gold therefore demands, that the Deutsche Bundesbank publishes all the lists with the gold bar numbers of gold bars, which are deposited abroad as well as in Germany.
The question one may ask is, whether the publication of the gold bar numbers would add any credibility to the claims that the gold is physically present, and the ultimate proof can only be given by a full inspection, rather than a dog and pony show, in which German auditors at the fed are shown one out of nine vaults “but don´t enter and don´t touch”. Repatriate Our Gold is therefore still insisting on a full, physical audit of the gold.
Repatriate Our Gold warns, that the repatriation of the German gold reserves from the USA and France by 2020, as the Bundesbank states it would, is far from sufficient. Boehringer states, that the Bundesbank seem to be betting on time because, as he states:
“If German gold reserves really have been used as collateral, one will first have to buy them back”.
And here, Boehringer is touching the most touchy of issues. It is correct, that the FED would first have to buy the gold before it could deliver, but the trouble is, that the gold-market has been in backwardation since early July 2013. To buy gold requires that there is someone who is able and willing to sell gold, and with the market being in backwardation that is impossible.
According to a nsnbc international report with World Bank whistleblower Karen Hudes, we may be facing a global currency war as corruption at the World Bank unsettles the gold market. Karen Hudes has worked 20 years as legal counsel at the World Bank´s legal department. Hudes was sacked in retaliation after she blew the whistle and reported massive corruption in the Bretton Woods institutions.
Hudes has since been reinstated, but the US administration continues its retaliation, and is, as a stakeholder analysis shows, under arrest of a conglomerate or megabank, has Hudes describes it, which prevents that the USA begins to comply with international accounting standards.
Already in May, Hudes warned that the consequence of failure to address the problems would be a permanent backwardation of the gold market and a global currency war that would, one started, grind world trade to a standstill. Moreover, Hudes states:
“A stakeholder analysis derived from accurate game theory modeling shows a clear fork in the road for the United States: rule of law and the transatlantic alliance or corruption and the ascendency of China.”
It may very well be that the United States and Germany, the FED and the Deutsche Bundesbank perceive it as being in their shared interest to cover-up the fact that Germany´s gold is gone, that:
” Germany won´t ever see its gold again…… Central Banks, such as the FED, where most of the reserves had been deposited, had lent the gold to U.S. Banks such as Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan. The gold has been used in the market to lower the gold price and the FED has received securities in exchange…. Germany won´t ever see that gold again, because it is safely kept in my accounts and the accounts of our investors”.
as William Kaye said it. The shared interest would in that case be the attempt to prevent the permanent backwardation, the subsequent currency war and the grinding of world trade to a hold. The problem for both the FED and the Bundesbank is, that the “Gini has left the bottle”, the truth is out and no complicity of silence will make it return into the bottle on its own volition. More simplified: “How to get the paste back into the tube?”.
When push comes to shove we will see that the German gold and the gold of numerous other countries who deposited their gold in the USA after WW II has been used to line the pockets of the US military industrial complex and has financed the US bet for global, full-spectrum dominance. Not surprisingly, many, especially older Germans come to think “Dresden and Pforzheim” when they are confronted with that fact.
