Behemoth capital structures that funded the industrial rise of China must now deal with the burdens of that growth. Unbalanced export markets teeter and impoverished end users can barely afford finished slave goods after the banker’s western assets defrauded them post Glass-Steagall’s repeal.
The corporate Chinese client-state shudders that they hedged with now toxic debt instruments but they also bought tangible goods, mineral rights in far flung locations, especially in troubled Africa. The dark continent is once again up for colonial grabs and Beijing’s investments and long range plans are being threatened enormously.
Libya went from cakewalk to quagmire, enter the cloak and dagger crew, the CIA’s fanatical mercenary Al Qaeda assets meant for a knockout punch to Moamar Gaddafi while captured mainstream media stumbles to explain the supposedly cobbled unholy alliance. Before the fireworks, 4000 Chinese were evacuated to Athens from Tripoli alone, it’s dead serious and the upper segment of their greater stake is exposed.
Contrary to German, Russian and Chinese objection, a NATO pincer movement forms via beachheads in the Med and Egyptian border outposts. International battalions are due to sweep on from Lybia to the Horn of Africa southeast while their colleagues march west on Algeria, post appropriate false flag event prompting an invitation to the dreaded humanitarians. Oddly a stationary Egyptian army, in place since the security pact Beijing made with Mubarak is still pointed toward Khartoum. What they’ll do is anybody’s guess and ultimately will depend on who feeds and pays them.
It was established weeks ago that Chinese interests in the Sudan will be a barometer for chicanery to come throughout the continent emanating from Africom. Wars cost money, there’s not enough in the West to see this one through so they’ll need to loot and punder for the self-funding adventure to roll, look out mineral rich central Africa!
Desperate folks armed to the teeth is a tradition from Berber country to the lower reaches of the Nile. Coupled with the memory of the Batlle of Algiers against the French and Gaddafi’s desire to go down fighting as a hero, we’re not optimistic.
The world’s largest consumer of oil, the US military machine, must commandeer Libya’s reserves to fuel themselves for dispossessing Iran of it’s wells or they might sputter to a stop. The US petro-dollar’s dominant tie-in as world reserve currency in the loopy fiat algorithm can’t be sustained if Libya doesn’t fall quickly though, they can print them just so fast. Even a temporary cut-off of one or the other will throw a wrench into the martial works. Right now though, most likely to tumble is the dollar.
Financial default means severed supply lines, entire US divisions could be stranded overseas to forage. When the printing press overloads to meltdown and threatens to take out the Bernank, other central banks with gold might as easily pick up the tab. Or not, they could do nothing, let things get medievel depending on favoured outcomes.
Twenty generations worth of debt was piled up investing in dictators like Gaddafi to enforce the West’s monopolies in the sanguine 20th century. Military industries that grew up out of that era believe they can still manufacture bespoke enemies and pull the same budget inflating stunts un-noticed, like cynically placing Neo-Maoist Obama at the forefront of their African campaign to blur it’s true mission, corporate conquest at the particular expense of China and the Arabs.
Back inside the Beltway, they’re all over the map, stationing the chess pieces and hoping Assad doesn’t arrest the remnants of the last mercenary Al Qaeda units they sent forward to upset Syria’s fragile political balance. Mossad’s doing their best to fan the fires but inventing reasons for the US to attack Iran’s nukes at the same time as Fukushima has been a devil of a job. It’s harder by the day, their pretence of control.
Luck too is running out for the debt merchant war machine, their paper is up against a scrutinising world public, defrauded and outraged by their tax money funding wars of aggression against bad guys every bloody politico was bear-hugging six months ago. Their confidence trick is nauseating the planet when people can’t afford the groceries!
China long ago lost any faith in paper, they’ve been importing untold amounts of gold by the ton and they’re already the world’s largest producer. They mean to take every other paid for mineral out of Africa too when the time is ripe. Fans of Gavin Menzies’ 1421 How China Discovered the World books will see history repeating and don’t expect they’ll give up any of the assets while doing their best to avoid all out clash.
But the omens aren’t good, Chinese Finance Ministry apparatchiks and speculators alike inadvertantly sealed their own fate, bought into quenching the West’s thirst for oil, blood and killing machines with every US dollar they slipped under the mattress. It’s becoming excruciatingly obvious they may face those weapons in an African ground war if not the Pacific Rim before the scandalous epoch of scam flames out.
Sarkozy imagines France still lords it over an empire, Cameron thinks he can bluff it for The City a little longer but Obama is under no illusions and the thumb of the New World Order who sanctioned the invasions years in advance. He can relax, if all goes to plan, he’ll end up back home as the Nobel Peace Prize winning Viceroy of Kenya!
