Not that very many people in America have recognized that their country is struggling to maintain the US dollar’s value as a soft currency. If they can no longer purchase any commodities needed to keep its economy running, America will began to make preparations of war if coercing a nation that possesses specific resources. Saddam Hussein has called the US dollar the currency of an “enemy state” and only wanted accept oil payments in Euros, the currency of the European Union. A bulk of Iraq’s oil exports flow through the U.N. humaritarian program and if the request for payments in euros is denied he would have stopped all exports.
The switch to euros would cost the U.N. a small fortune in accounting-paperwork changes. It would also reduce the interest earnings and reparations payments that Iraq is making for damage it caused during the Gulf War, a shortfall the Iraqis would have to make up. The decision if implemented would have hurt the United Nations, Iraq, and the countries receiving reparations; it is obvious that the US led assault on the Islamic nation would have immediately received approval from the UN.
Any power who would discontinue the use of the American dollar as a requirement to buy its commodities is immediately targeted not by Washington but by NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization). Countries that are sitting on vast oil and natural gas reserves usually are targeted for air strikes and even full military invasions.
In the book False Flag: A History of US Government Sponsored Terrorism and Espionage, the two chapters on Pearl Harbor and the Gulf of Tonkin describe how the United States dollar became the world’s reserve currency. Protactwar caused it to loose its strength as an international currency. That war I am referring to is the Vietnam War and it took America out of the gold standard that was established after World War II. A troy ounce of gold was worth $35 it was planned at an international monetary conference in the 1940’s known as Bretton Woods. Countries needed items to help repair their war torn cities and in exchange for the recovered gold they obtained from the Nazis Americans delivered all of the supplies required to rebuild European countries affected by the Second World War.
In the 1970’s the military expenses that funded the Vietnam War made European governments realize that the US was printing a lot more money than it had in gold. Those countries began to demand that their gold bullions be returned and former president Richard Nixon removed the American dollar off the gold standard in 1971. In 1973, the Saudi King Faisal and Nixon made an agreement was to accept US dollars as the only payment for oil and to invest any profits in US treasury bonds, notes, and bills in military in exchange for protection of oil fields from the Soviet Union and other aggressors such as Iran and Iraq.
By 1975, every member of OPEC agreed to sell their oil in only US dollars. Placing these restrictions on oil being sold for only US dollars has increased its value since America now has gained control of another nation’s hard currency. This agreement allowed America to buy imported commodities at a discounted price as oil imported countries saved their surpluses in US dollars to buy oil from the Middle East. The Saudi government invested in US treasury securities and that provided a great pool of lenders to support US government spending.
The second country to move away from the US dollar is Venezuela.
In October 2005 President Hugo Chavez announced that Venezuela was ready to move the country’s foreign exchange holdings out of the dollar and into the euro.WND previously reported Iran and Venezuela have joined forces in an effort to undermine the U.S. dollar.Iran today announced a decision to end all oil sales in dollar transactions, a move that lead one step closer to confrontation with the United States.Chavez, also called for the creation of a South American central bank designed to hold in euros all the foreign exchange holdings of the participating countries.
Iranian oil minister Gholam Hussein Nozari strongly suggested OPEC should move to a trustworthy currency to stop the loss of oil exporting countries, according to the ISNA report. According to Nozari, the US dollar is not considered a trustworthy currency over its continuing depreciation and the losses of dollars experienced by crude oil-exporting countries.
At the Abu Dhabi summit last week, OPEC decided not to increase production, concluding there is currently enough oil in world supplies to handle winter demand. Iran currently has a proposal before OPEC recommending that OPEC oil-exporting countries move to sell oil in a basket of currencies, rather than dollars.
In April, WND reported Iran successfully pressured China to begin paying for Iranian oil in euros, not dollars. Nozari also told the ISNA that Iran plans to fulfill the Sinopec Chinese Company’s recent request to purchase more Iranian oil.
WND also reported Iran is seriously considering establishing an Iranian Oil Bourse (or Iranian Oil Exchange) with the goal of establishing competition with the New York Mercantile Exchange, NYMEX, and London’s International Petroleum Exchange, or IPE.

Faced with a current recession, the US dollar is losing its role as the conduit for global trade and as inflation, interest rates, and cost of other goods increases the US government would be unable to finance its debts. That is why other countries are starting to stray away from the dollar by exchange their own national currencies when trading their goods. It would be a requirement for countries to receive their own national currencies if they want to sell their goods to another country. China and Japan made a deal where firms could convert Chinese yuan and Japanese yen as they directly buy each others products instead of using US dollars; a similar plan is being discussed with South Korea. The agreements with Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa (BRICS) also request the back and forth exchanging of their national monies when trading, instead of the US dollar. China wants to pursue bilateral trade with Malaysia using their renminbi (secondary unit of yuan currency) and ringgit (Malaysian dollar). Iran and Russia are beginning to use rubles as a means of currency when trading. In 2009 China became Africa’s largest trading partner after the United States and wants to expand the use of the renminbi by 2015. Major international agencies are also supporting these ideas of rejecting the US dollar. The International Monetary Fund agreed that the dollar should cede its role as a global reverse currency.
Countries who only accept payments of oil and other significant resources like natural gas in their national currencies affect the value of the US dollar. To prevent an economic collapse America will impose sanctions on any country who trades with oil producing nations. The country of India has been receiving threats over abandoning the US dollar to buy fuel from the Iranians. The dollar’s instability regarding its value on the world market has forced them to use gold to purchase their oil and that is actually helping Iran bypass the sanctions imposed on them by the United States.

India is not America’s enemy it is just the US dollar is just getting weaker as time goes on. Foreign tourists to many of India’s most famous landmarks no longer be able to pay the entrance fee in dollars, the government says. There used to be an option of paying in dollars or rupees and Indians only pay 20 or 10 rupees to enter ASI sites, a difference often questioned by foreign tourists. There’s nothing wrong with since most Indians ear far less than foreign visitors. India had to fix its rates in line with international practices to remain at a level balance with the fluctuating dollar value. The ruling will affect nearly 120 sites of interest run by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI). Of these, at least 27 are World Heritage sites, including the Taj Mahal. Entrance fees to the sites will be either 250 rupees ($6.35) or 100 rupees ($2.54).
India no longer accepts U.S. currency
These suspicions of Iran building nuclear weapons is another campaign of propaganda like the fraudalent notion of Iraq possessing weapons of mass destruction.
HR 568 (House bill 568) which was passed on May 18, 2012 included provisions that concerned Iran’s nuclear capabilities.
On February 16, S. Res 380 (Senate Resolution 380) passed and it already expressed the sense of the Senate regarding the importance of preventing the Government of Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapons capability.
Its official summary states: “Affirms that it is a vital national interest of the United States to prevent the Islamic Republic of Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapons capability and warns that time is limited to prevent that from happening. Urges increasing economic and diplomatic pressure on Iran to secure an agreement that includes: (1) suspension of all uranium enrichment-related and reprocessing activities, (2) complete cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) regarding Iran’s nuclear activities, and (3) a permanent agreement that verifiably assures that Iran’s nuclear program is entirely peaceful.
(1) the universal rights and democratic aspirations of the Iranian people, and (2) U.S. policy to prevent the Iranian government from acquiring nuclear weapons capability. Rejects any U.S. policy that would rely on efforts to contain a nuclear weapons-capable Iran. Urges the President to reaffirm the unacceptability of an Iran with nuclear-weapons capability and oppose any policy that would rely on containment as an option in response to the Iranian nuclear threat.”
The Wall Street Journal reported that a nuclear armed Iran would threaten the global economy by holding Middle Eastern oil supplies hostage; the closing of the Strait of Hormuz has already been contemplated but the real concerns not mentioned by the authors of the article is that Iran already stopped accepting US dollars for payments on oil sales and that a nuclear-armed Iran would deter other powers from further harassing Iran.
As America copes to maintain the US dollar’s strength they have no other choice but to rely on using its military strength knowing it would prevent other nations from expanding the role of their own indigenous forms of currency. America is already understanding that China, Russia, and possibly India would be forced to go into war. These sanctions that America is threatening will slowly diminishing positive relations with countries they had in the past and that will further isolate America.
Safavi, a military adviser to Iran’s clerical Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei noted on the current economic conditions of the United States and how a war against Iran would further add more damage to the financial crisis that America faces. Iranian missiles could reach US bases stationed in the Middle East and military strikes against the country would force Iran to close the Strait of Hormuz.
But that doesn’t stop America from feeling its urges to launch a war against the Iranians. America and the Arabic Kingdom of Jordan conducted Eager Lion 2012, a military exercise that included more than 19 countries from five different continents and more than 12,000 participants. The focus of Eager lion is the strengthening and increased military partnerships of participating nations to development improvements to handle current and future complex national security challenges.
3,000 troops aligned with US forces have conducted a simulated landing and attack on Iran, preparing America and its allies for a war that becomes more likely by the day. Should the US officially attack either Syria or Iran, Gen. Mattis will be the head of the military forces there.
A landing was staged on a Jordanian beach followed by a military seizure of fortified mountain bases and command posts. The exercises were meant to charade a raiding attack on Iran and Syria. Aircraft carriers are already stationed in the Persian Gulf area, the USS Abraham Lincoln and USS Enterprises; the Air Force has sent six of the Stealth F-22 fighters to the neighboring United Arab Emirates. Gen. Mattis has recently sought approval from US President Barack Obama to deploy a third aircraft carrier to the Middle East to increase America’s presence.
‘US intervention in Iran will drag China & Russia into war’
Two months after the 2003 US invasion of Iraq, China’s leaders were about the technological success in the war in Iraq. It had led China to speed up weapons development and procurements since the move demonstrated a success of continuing US imperialism in the region. Concerns regarding a Strategic Oil reserve to handle rising prices has caused a demand in raising the budgets for procurements of military hardware. Techniques of reverse engineering allowed Chinese scientist to develop some weapons in a fraction of the time it took American scientist to develop them.
On April 4, 2012, 200 US Marines arrived in Australia and they are just the first of 2,500 to be deployed as they make their first long-term expansion of the US military in Australia since the Vietnam War. The Chinese are keeping a close eye on this build up as America is geographically surrounding areas close to the Strait of Hormuz.
A joint military exercise named “Balikatan” or “shoulder to shoulder” was carried out with training routines off Palawan near the South China Sea. Both US and Philippine armed forces. The military has been accused of trying to deter the attempt of a Chinese threat to the Philippines. There was a stand off between Philippine and Chinese ships at the Huangyan Island in the South China Sea. Emmanuel Garcia, the Balikatan public affairs officer stressed that the exercises were not directed against any country and only focused on maritime security and counter-terrorism.
US forces were deployed in Vietnam to use Cam Ranh Bay as a route to rotate ships, troops, and other military equipment from America.
America must acknowledge that Iran doesn’t have a problem with them and the story of Iranian Naval forces rescuing a US cargo ship sheds some truth to it. Maersk Line Ltd, an American commerce ship attacked by Pirates received helpful guidance from the Iranian navy as they communicated with the crew of Maersk Texas through radio.
The Iranians have the proper technology to defend themselves against a US Military invasion but they need to use their military technology wisely in order to cope with the US and NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization).The Laser beam targeting beacon in Iran’s new missile should be modified to track and detect enemy missiles. Iranian countermissile would successfully hit some American rockets and could placed more defensive emphasis on strategic areas of the country. If Iran attempts to shoot missiles at US ships they would easily be countered with a direct energy weapon known as the LAWS (Laser Weapon System). This weapon system can shoot down cruise missiles and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles.

‘US ships available for Iran missiles’-News Analysis-07-03-2012
Navy Laser Weapon System (LaWS) PR Video
America’s continued production of creating countermeasures against their defense technologies. The Griffin, a mini-missile system developed by Raytheon has been successfully tested against speed boats. Griffin mini missiles could hit speedboat targets more than 2 kilometers (1.2 miles). A laser guided system combined with GPS coordinates enable the Griffin to engage its targets. I understand that the Iranians value speedboats but seriously aerial warfare is way more effective since land and sea tend to have obstacles that could slow a whole army down. That is why the Iranians have developed speedboats that can fly above water.
Flying Boats would intercept Us aircraft before they are launched from aircraft carriers. They have radar evading capabilities and are equipped with machine guns. People are not impressed with the boats for a good reason, the Iranians forget to equip them with blinding laser pointers. These would be shined at American aircraft ready to launch from their carriers while the machine gun does further damage. The flying boats developed by the Iranians are applicable to an extent where in order to conduct effective maneuvers they have to already be in the air firing at American naval vessels if they land back on the water Griffin mini missiles would hit the Bavar 2 boats. Episodes of firefights and shootouts between Iranian and US forces would evolve into hit & run strategies that tire out western forces in the Strait of Hormuz. They can shoot at American ships that illegally enter their coasts, retreat, and then drop a magnetic mine as American vessels are in full pursuit. The Russians were supposed to provide an effective air defense system but they changed their mind due to economic sanctions. The video slide shows made by users of youtube prove that the Iranians have managed to acquire and develop the proper military technology that fits in with their environment and needs.

‘War is hell: Iran far stronger than US would like to admit’
America cannot afford to directly enter battle. The arrival of US troops to Australia, the Philippines, and Vietnam could have only one significance; landing zones to train and coordinate various US-NATO proxy forces. A proxy in this context is a third party army used by opposing powers as substitutes for fighting each other directly.
Israel insists that by itself it could use military force to pressure Iran away from developing an atomic weapon. Israelis want to take military action against Iran.
Israel has received access to air bases in Azerbaijan and what they had in mind is to use them for conducting aerial strikes against Iran. Relations between Iran and Azerbaijan have already been hurt in recent months over Azerbaijan’s friendly links with Israel and its purchase of hundreds of dollars worth of military weapons. In 2009, the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) has been in Iran giving money to Iranian exiles to stage riots.

Inside Story – Western media and the Iran crisis – 24 June09
These little countries are just landing zones to transport equipment and weapons to future proxy forces they will not fight side-by-side with the US military. The United States will need proxy forces to geographically encircle certain sections of Iran. These irregular armies will advance towards Iran’s western and southern borders while western forces concentrate their positions around the Persian Gulf and Strait of Hormuz. That is why Proxy units must be the main threat for Iranian defense forces to address. The situations in Libya and Syria predict the enemy that Iran will face in a land battle which is why they must quell any riot before it escalates and becomes the perfect distraction. The best way for Iran to quickly secure its nation from any attempted coup is to use cannabis or marijuana as a nonlethal defense implement against civil disturbances. The THC isomers are a type of calmative agent that just put the mind in a passive state where reactions are slow and urges are held completely back. Dr.James Ketchum tested a potent form of synthetic marijuana on soldiers and noted these results as he was developing a secret weapon in the 1960’s.
The use of marijuana as an incapacitating agent is nonlethal and would not kill any innocent bystanders.
Iran is proving to the world that the only time they make the first move on Iran is when they feel Americans and other adversaries are intruding into their territory. To further secure its ability defend itself the Iranians possibly obtained the Russian Avtobaza, a device thatallegedly brought down a US RQ-170 surveillance drone on December 2011. Stephen Trimble from Flight Global reported that Russia delivered the Avtobaza ground-based electronic intelligence jamming system to Iran six weeks prior to the incident. The device is considered a passive defense system since it could manipulate the guidance of control systems of enemy missiles and interfere with the fire control radars on aircraft. Somehow the device tapped into the radio frequencies of the UAV thus allowing it to be controlled remotely.
Researchers at the University of Texas in Austin hacked into the GPS (Global Positioning System) of a drone. They demonstrated the technique to DHS (Department of Homeland Security) officials how it was done. One important thing these students brought up is the risk of these drones being directed at the wrong targets even to the point of someone packing explosives and sending it back to the target of their choice. They even stated that this is the mentality of the 9/11 hijackers. Obviously Iran the only country in the middle east possessing this technology would be blamed for drone attacks in America. Iran’s going to reverse engineer the technology of US drones and use it to make its own similar missile guidance systems. With the capture of this technology it would be easier for Iranians to make anti-missile rockets that could be modified with sensors to track and even chase incoming missiles attempting to hit Iranian targets.
‘Iran to implement US drone technology’
The key for Iranian defense is to prevent the emergence of new proxy forces from the African continent and other countries in the Middle East. The best move to make is to start giving humanitarian aid to countries in Africa and the Middle East. These nations usually tend to sometimes be wary of western aid at times. Perhaps helping them would sway western opinions of Iran that were fed to them by international media news reels.
The governments in Africa just want to be able to develop independently from Western assistance and since Iran provides cheap oil some African countries have experienced problems. The United States has threatened Kenya, Tanzania, Sierra Leone and other African nations with sanctions if they import oil from Iran. These threats are causing America to loose influence over some African countries as their constant interference with the sovereignty of other nations causes them to look elsewhere for support. That’s why it would be wise for Iran to expand its humanitarian aid operations and have agents secretly negotiate with the chinese regarding the US presence in Africa. If abond is established between Tehran through the aid they give to Africa Iranian diplomats could make negotiations to assist African countries in preventing any drones invading their airspace.
In 2005, the Iranians promised to help Nigerians developed ballistic missiles and supply anti-tank weapons. These missiles would also be intended as a defense mechanism against missiles and large bombs raining down on Nigeria. The United States needs to use its AFRICOM (African Command) unit to help control the Northern and Eastern parts of Africa while both America and NATO control the majority of the Middle East. The militarization of vast oil fields in those parts of the Middle East would prevent the economic growth of Russia and China. Once this finally the Russians and Chinese would not be able to compete with America and they would no longer try to abandon the US dollar as a currency for trade. That is where Iran, a major oil producer must be encouraged to become a cooperating force as their oil helps China and Russia sustain their continuing developments. Defense systems that could counter some fairly powerful weapons of the US military must be given to friendly countries in Africa and the Middle East. It would cause a reduction of America’s ability to intimidate smaller countries and even the levels of power.

That’s why it would also be wise for Iranians to obtain a second unit of the Russian Avtobaza Jamming system and start reverse engineering it to build their own versions of the device. They would work hard to build copies of the Avtobaza and give them to friendly forces on the African continent thus giving them a boost in their military defenses. That move would finally isolate America from its position in Africa. They are encircled by US allies so it is smart to have multiple Avtobaza’s that could also jam rockets from friendly Arab governments West of Iran. If positioned in Africa they would jam and interfere with the signals and frequencies of UAV launching stations in other areas besides the Strait of Hormuz. Retired General Wesley Clark knew about America’s plan to invade seven countries starting with Iraq and then following Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and finally Iran. All of the reports in the news about the rebellions in Libya and Syria proved that Clark was correct this whole time.
Wesley Clark: Decision made to invade 7 countries after 911
Americans must think of consequences as Iran demonstrates its power and enforces its ability to block the Strait of Hormuz. Think about it! The gas prices would rise dramatically and truck drivers who deliver food, water, and other items of interest would no longer afford to transport it to their destinations. That would cause a famine in the United States and best way to survive is to learn how to garden. Perhaps around every American city there are large grassy patches of land that are unused and plenty of golf courses with healthy soil. America please! Those large bodies of land and patches of lawn in your neighborhoods need to be used to grow crops.
Little City Gardens of San Francisco became the first legal commerical farm to operate within its city borders. Because of them, San Francisco leaders revised zoning laws to allow the cultivation and sale of food produce in all neighborhoods. Other cities in the Bay area have decided to allow citizens to transform portions of their property into large gardens. San Francisco, Berkeley, and Oakland are the first cities in California to craft modern urban farming regulations, following the standards of other US cities mainly Seattle, WA and Kansas City, MO. In 2009, former Mayor Gavin Newsom issued a urban farming directive that required unused lots, median strips, and rooftops to be converted into gardens. Growing them for personal use doesn’t concern the city unless people do it for making a profit. That is why city permits are issued to urban farmers who want to market their produce to people. Heavy criticism over the raising of animals has been addressed over the risk of meat developing diseases.
This small article written by Ro Kumar elaborates on the importance of urban farming. Kumar’s house has over 500 plant species including zucchinis, tomatoes, pomegranates, kale, spinach, apples, figs, guavas, almonds, garlic, onion, strawberries, and more. He is able to grow more than 3000 pounds of food per year on a plot of land the size of a basketball court– enough land to feed his family of four year-round. He hinted on how the practice of urban farming would compete with the mainstream corporate farming bringing up the California Cottage Food Act, which will allow people to legally sell certain homemade goods like jams and breads. Kumar also brought up an important factor that relates to this article and that is by peoplegrowing gardens using the front and backyards of homes it would minimize the use of gasoline used to transport food to supermarkets. The packaging of food which uses plastics is made from oil would also be reduced. Industrial agriculture is a major source of dependence on oil, even petrochemicals are used to fertilize, spray, and preserve foodstuff. This new trend alone will at least keep whole communities throughout America independent of all Middle Eastern and African oil.

The powers that be are obviously desperate to start a war with Iran even to the point of wanting to stage an event to provoke the Iranians into launching the first strike. Patrick Clawson spells out signs of America declaring battle. The way he described in his own words sounds like the United States waited patiently for the attack to take place. Pearl Harbor, the sinking of the Lusitania, explosions occuring on the USS Maine, and Fort Sumpter. He says its best if someone else started the war.

How to Build U.S.-Israeli Coordination on Preventing an Iranian Nuclear Breakout
Americans must understand that preserving the US dollar’s value will only benefit the government since it is an succession of them penetrating the economic armor of other nations. America’s dependence on petroleum as a source of energy to run its civilization would add to the burden of its current recession. That is why Americans should just plant their own crops just so they wouldn’t rely on food delivery companies. If the Iranians are so connected to terrorism why would they save an American commerce ship? That is one of the reason hopefully my readers would ask themselves. The exploitation of the 9/11 tragedy have been doing an excellent of keeping that suspicion towards Iran alive and well. America is doing its best to prevent a total break down of their economy. The United States and European countries could not afford to trade their oil in gold bullions and as the dollar slowly loses its value expect to hear endless news stories about Islamic terrorism and a future war with Iran. It doesn’t mean it will happen but for the readers in the Washington DC (District of Columbia) area here’s the biggest sign:
For those who live in the Washington D.C. area if they love to order pizza and wonder why their delivery is taking a long time well that is a sign that the U.S. Military is ready to depart into battle. Freek Meek, an owner of sixty Domino’s Pizza franchises in the D.C. area. Meeks is famous for tracking every single order until he noticed an upsurge of orders coming from the White House, State Department, and the Pentagon. Meeks noticed the exact increase of orders following the invasions of Grenada and Panama. He called the news and used his summaries to report Americans are about to go to war. According to the Domino’s Pizza team, the favorite pizza ordered by the White House was a vegetarian pizza while the Pentagons was a pepperoni. All of this was documented in 2003 the year that the United States declared war against Iraq.
