Marc Faber Says America Will Launch More Wars to Distract from Bad Economy

[Orignially posted by George Washington on his Blog.]

The claim that America would launch more wars to the help the economy is outrageous, right?


But leading economist Marc Faber has repeatedly said that the American government will start new wars in response to the economic crisis:

“The next thing the government will do to distract the attention of the people on bad economic conditions is they’ll start a war somewhere.”

“If the global economy doesn’t recover, usually people go to war.”

Is Faber crazy?

Maybe. But top trend forecaster Gerald Calente agrees.
As the economic crisis escalates and the debt-based central banking system shows it can no longer re-inflate the bubble by creating assets out of thin air, an economic and political rationale for war is easy to come by; for if the Keynesian doctrine that government spending is the only way to lift us out of an economic depression is true, then surely military expenditures are the quickest way to inject “life” into a failing system. This doesn’t work, economically, since the crisis is only maksed by the wartime atmosphere of emergency and “temporary” privation. Politically, however, it is a lifesaver for our ruling elite, which is at pains to deflect blame away from itself and on to some “foreign” target.

It’s the oldest trick in the book, and it’s being played out right before our eyes, as the U.S. prepares to send even more troops to the Afghan front and is threatening Iran with draconian economic sanctions, a step or two away from outright war.

The US won't be able to start a new war against Iran simply on the basis of unsubstantiated claims of a secret nuclear weapons program. If a strike is launched and the economy implodes a huge amount of the blame will be levelled at the Obama Administration. The bad guys really need to ramp up the "reality" and fear factor within the current unwinnable war on terror paradigm. The US population will be "need" to be targeted. A terrorised population will rally around their President and accept whatever draconian measures are in store.

Therefore next step in this equation is likely to be a false flag terror attack on US soil in which "Al Qaeda backed" US nationals are implicated in the plot. This will provide an excuse to sweep up any internal "undesirables", clamp down on freedom of speech, the internet etc. whilst blaming the disaster on outside forces. Be prepared for another horrific 911-style false flag attack.

The problem for the present Administration is that so many people are becoming suspicious of the US Government, ie the establishment, that time is fast running out for these criminals. People are becoming aware of their schemes ... !
