If U.S. Troops Fight WWIII, Who Fights the Coming American Civil War?

By Dominique de Kevelioc de Bailleul

U.S. troops available for deployment to fight a full-blown war is 1.4 million, with an additional 2.1 million, if all of NATO were to oblige.

On the other hand, if the Chinese commanded its people to deliver up every able 18-year-old male to fight a full-blown war, 6.5 million would need a uniform.  When all 18-year-old Chinese men are knocked off in first rounds of battle, another 6.5 million 19-year-old vengeful can step in, with another set of 17-year-old men coming of age at the rate of 500,000 per month.

With that back-of-the-napkin estimate of manpower available on both sides,  some group buried deeply within the true power structure out of reach of an American president must believe that the prize gained from winning a war with Iran is truly that large.

And what if a conventional ground invasion strategy turns into a nuclear one?  What prize is worth that?  With most of the Middle East and North Africa stirred into a frenzy of anti-American sentiment, how does that “snake pit” make it any easier on those wishing to control the region?

“What Washington has done, by destroying the secular governments that sat on these Islamist forces by destroying Saddam Hussein, by practically destroying Assad, by destroying Gaddafi, they’ve unleashed all of the virulent and extremist Islamist forces that are determined to throw off all forms of Western influence,” former Asst. Secretary of Treasury Dr. Paul Craig Roberts told Infowars’ Alex Jones.

“So how can they control it now?  They can’t.  The way its was controlled was by the people we’ve overthrown.  So we’ve produced this snake pit for ourselves,” he adds.

Those behind the overthrows won’t admit they were wrong about suggesting a high-risk mission of complete control the Middle East was a good idea, according to Roberts, “so they’ll stick with the same stupid policy,” he says.

In the end, hubris “will destroy them”— the elitists.

The much-talked-about nuclear option is truly insane; a conventional war cannot be won; and the finances to pay for a WWII-like scenario aren’t there.

Living in a cave for years to escape nuclear fallout doesn’t sound like a worthwhile benefit to those behind today’s U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East.

Fighting a conventional war necessitates the U.S. to bring back the draft, and by somehow forcing the growing percentage of ‘awaken’ men to put aside their differences with the state apparatchik to fight a national cause.  That’s highly unlikely.

Then, there is the matter of maintaining the value of the dollar while fighting an enemy that holds $2 trillion of U.S. Treasuries.

When the dollar collapses from a Chinese financial attack in the sovereign debt market, how does Washington pay for the troops?

“We have the fiscal cliff; it will be evaded, just like Congress evades the debt limit, the budget resolution,” says Roberts.  “They evade everything that’s a real problem, and they continue all of this pretense.  So in the end, there’s nothing but pretense.

“And so I think this is what brings down the empire and saves us from the police state.”

“It’s a culture and empire of delusion,” Roberts concludes.

“They’re building a wood chipper that they want to feed us into, but they’re the ones who end up going into it,” says Infowars’ Alex Jones.

“That’s right.  I think that’s a good way to put it,” says Roberts.

“They’ve taken away our civil liberties; they’ve built these interment camps; they’ve broken the Posse Comitatus law,” Roberts continues.  “So they’re preparing to use the same force and violence against American citizens that they used against the Iraqis, the Afghans, the Pakistanis, the Yemenis, the Libyans.

“So what’s happened is: persuasion and argument and convincing people is no longer the policy; it’s violence, force—force and violence.”

How much force China will tolerate is unclear.  An attack on Iran seriously jeopardizes China’s industrial machine and weapon against U.S. hegemony.  Without support of the dollar, “people abandon the stock market, the real estate market, the bond market, the currency itself, and all of sudden the dollar is no long the reserve currency and all of a sudden the United State can no longer pay for its imports [8 million barrels of oil per day, especially] . . .

“So it ends the power.  The empire crumbles overnight.  The wars stop, because there is no means of financing them. . . . and that’s when it all comes unglued.”

It’s “Worth Nuclear War” to Save the Dollar

By Dominique de Kevelioc de Bailleul

“Both parties are driven by the neoconservatives (“neocons”) who believe that American hegemony over the world is worth nuclear war to accomplish,” states former Asst. Secretary of Treasury and Reagonics architect Paul Craig Roberts in his latest blog post of Aug. 20.

In his post, titled, Amerika’s Future is Death, the 73-year-old former Washington elite-turned-willful-outcast warns readers of fantastic tales circulating American culture, which are meant to serve as an explanation for the economic and social chaos swirling violently within the U.S., including talk of secret Bilderberg meetings, covert plans for a New World Order, and accusations of a crazy cabal of neocons hellbent on sparking a full-blown WWIII.

The tale continues with an endgame scenario to secure complete U.S. hegemony with an attack upon Iran, completing a decades-long neocon plan to manhandle the freedom genie back into the bottle.

The only problem with such a tale, according to Roberts, is: it’s not a tale at all; it’s all real, very real.  But most Americans are still blind or desensitized to reports of various government agencies procuring, in total, 1.4 billion rounds of ammunition; new Army manuals for “Civil Disturbance Operations” (in direct violation of Posse Comitatus); and acquisitions of ‘sound cannons’, full-body armor and laser equipment design to identify and classify human beings “from 164 feet away.”

Just as Hitler slowly and insidiously yanked liberties from German citizens for the good of the Third Reich during the 1930s, the elusive dream of world domination held through a handful of ‘power elites’ entail similar sacrifices of Americans—and the captured U.S. media (which Roberts refers to as “presstitutes”) will serve as the play-by-play moderator of the national dialogue during American decline into a high-tech 21st century controlled aristocracy of unfit “freaks,” as Trends Research Institutes’ Gerald Celente refers to the loosely defined cabal.

“Americans are told that ‘their’ government cannot afford to help them because of the budget deficit and the burden on our grandchildren,” Roberts explains.  “But Americans see the trillions of dollars that are lavished on banksters, on wars, and on Homeland Security. . .

“The spiel will be about our brave troops who are fighting and dying to make the world safe for democracy and women’s rights. Washington will wrap itself in the flag and exhort Americans to ‘support our troops’ in the orchestrated war of the day.”

The Karl Marx-like mastermind of the neocon movement, Leo Strauss (1899-1973), likened the role Americans would eventually play for the neocons at time of the endgame with an analogy found in the story of Gulliver’s Travels.

“When Lilliput was on fire, Gulliver urinated over the city, including the palace,” said Strauss.  “In so doing, he saved all of Lilliput from catastrophe, but the Lilliputians were outraged and appalled by such a show of disrespect. . .

“Only a great fool would call the new political science diabolic . . . Nevertheless one may say of it, that it fiddles, while Rome burns. It is excused by two facts: it does not know that it fiddles, and it does not know that Rome burns.”

Essentially, Strauss advocates a neocon strategy of abject and mind-blowing disrespect for the American people during the process of subjugation, while at the same time performing grand theater to ‘morally’ justify sacrificial solutions to problems the freaks crafted all along.  The Patriot Act, TSA groping and humiliation tactics, NDAA, referring to Constitutionalists as ‘extremists’, ‘potential domestic terrorist’ and ‘conspiracy theory crazies’, illustrate the Strauss prescription of domesticating freedom lovers to a T.

“Today moralizing is all about money, but not for the 99%.” says Roberts.  “The 99% cannot find good jobs or earn anything on their savings, because the economy is run for the 1%. . .

“Any American citizen accustomed to travel America’s ‘wide open spaces’ prior to 9/11 must be astonished by the sudden rise of the intrusive Homeland Security, a gestapo-sounding name if there ever was one.

“Porno-scans and genital feel-ups have spread from airports to bus and train stations and to the public highways, despite the absence of terrorist events.”

Previously, in interviews with investigative journalist Alex Jones of InfoWars.com, Roberts has said he believes that over the years the leadership of Washington and Wall Street has increasingly been ‘democratically’ steered in favor of elevating a significant number of sociopaths into power to affect the once unimaginable to a once-thriving republic: a high-risk global coup, which may include, if necessary, a nuclear confrontation with Russia and, most likely, China, to complete its ultimate prize.

However, Iran stands in the way; it’s the last nation-state holdout to attain complete control of the future of the petrodollar (or whatever currency may comes next), and Russia and China are quite aware of the neocons’ plans, drawing the line there—no farther, or it’s war—WWIII.  And according to Roberts, the plan about to be implemented by the neocons is nothing short of insane.

“America, Putin acknowledged, wants to rule the world. But Washington is not going to rule Russia and China,” Roberts explains.  “If the current White House moron keeps his promise to Israeli prime minister Netanyahu that the U.S. will attack Iran next June if Iran does not close down its nuclear energy program (a non-weapons program permitted to Iran as a signatory of the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty), the White House will have opened the door to World War III.

“In such a war the U.S. would not be immune from attack as it was in WW I and WW II. This time America could disappear in nuclear holocaust. If any of the world survives, people will be thankful for Washington’s removal from the scene.”
