    With All The Mess The World Economy A New Big War Must Be On The Cards

    Yeah, yeah, I know it’s the festive season and you probably want to read something really exciting, such as which celeb is doing it with which celeb and what Madonna or some other fading pop star is up to. But how about some fancy political analysis for a change?

    Anyhow, the way things are going in Europe and across the pond at the moment, with bankers causing lots of problems to everyone and preparing a new big crash, the feeling is that we’re looking at a great big war coming up pretty soon. And if you glance back in history you’ll notice that the two previous Big Wars were preceded by some serious economic and financial turmoil that could not be sorted out in a peaceful manner, with lots and lots of money needing to be written off.

    The same situation exists today, in case you haven’t noticed it. The money men stubbornly refuse to tell about the real situation that exists in their respective banks and how big their black holes are. Politicians meanwhile bang on about some ‘recovery’ that is supposedly lurking around the corner, but it’s all rubbish of course. The main problem is that no one is prepared to say it like it is: that the whole financial system stinks and that the people running it are no good. This situation can’t go on for long as the whole thing is bound to crash.

    So, on the basis of this serious analysis of the current state of things we can relatively safely assume that we’re entering a stage when politicians might be tempted to drag us all into another big war – to cover up their incompetence and shield their friends in the banking sector. This time the big war will be fought away from Europe, to spare the devastation, but it will nevertheless be very costly and allow to write off some serious mullah.

    But which nation will do the honours, you may be thinking. All things considered, America has to initiate the proceedings this time round, especially as it owes a hell of a lot of money to China which it can’t really repay. (Some say it;s $14 trillion already.) And the best way to write off a huge debt, as history shows, is to start a huge war.

    So, I’m guessing here, America will start things rolling by telling Israel to hit Iran, to destroy its nuclear bomb that it would supposedly have by then. And Israel will go for it and all hell will break loose in the Middle East and beyond. Because once Israel attacks Iran, other countries might start to intervene. Like Syria, for example, where President Bashar al-Assad is under siege and would love some juicy regional war to get his teeth into. So Assad will order to hit Israel. And America, naturally, will rush to defend its biggest ally in the Middle East. Turkey would obviously get dragged in as well, as it is itching to hit Syria. But Iraq might feel that Turkey is getting too big for its boots and hit it with everything it’s got.

    Britain would obviously be dragged into the war by then, as it always follows America when it comes to waging wars. And then Afghanistan and Pakistan would be sucked into the conflict, simply because the Taliban on both sides of the border would feel the need to defend their brothers.

    And once Pakistan is set alight, India might be next, and might even invade Pakistan. And once this happens, China would probably try to attack Taiwan, quietly, while everyone is busy, but America would have none of this and hit the commies hard.

    And then God knows what might happen and we might witness some pretty serious warring here and there. And then it will die down, as it usually does. And the main winners would be the money men, who, just as before, would write off pretty much all of the money that they have gambled away or misused.

    Not a nice scenario, I know. But if we allow the bankers to keep on pulling the world economy apart and wasting the taxpayers’ bail-out money which governments give them we should not complain that we didn’t see it coming.

    Happy New Year 2013 ?

    The Middle East is where the action will be centred. There's already a proxy war between Iran and Israel via Israel's immediate neighbours.

    Also, there's no love lost between Iran and Saudi Arabia, between Shiites and Suni's.

    I suspect Syria may use its chemical weapons against Israel, and Israel will retaliate with a nuclear attack on Damascus. The world will be outraged, with Russia's alliance with Iran utilised with other Muslim nations mobilised against Israel.

    Nuclear weapons make large scale conflicts unlikely, yes the 2nd World War was born of economic crisis, but the First World War wasn't. There is a proxy war between Sunni and Shia Islam in Syria, something Israel would be wise to keep out of, and seems to want nothing to do with as a Saafist Syria is a far scarier prospect than Assad’s regime. The current US President will do all he can to avoid war so it’s unlikely from that direction too.

    The theory is probably right and some of the Middle East (Kuwait, Saudi, Abu Dabhi etc) will reluctantly lean towards the West as their oil is running out. However don't rule out an assault on North Korea as "backup" to the South. A country with little or no infrastructure that would raise £b's in rebuilding contracts

    The middle east countries are always squabbling amongst themselves, whether it be about their fairytale religions or about oil/money etc etc.

    The description of "peace" in a middle eastern dictionary is - A brief period of time between two wars"

    Its what they do, the WMD just get bigger.

    Some trigger and subsequent mechanism for reducing the world's human population is inevitable......just a matter of when.

    America makes sure they keep squabbling through their economic hitmen so they can steal all the oil and,keep selling them arms.

    Yes but they don't really want them to use the arms? Supplying the Gulf States with weapons as a counter to the cost of importing oil is the default option and is currently leading to an arms race. It is a possible even likely source of conflict but again one thats not desirable for the West as it would hugely disrupt oil supply.

    Another bunch of religious zealots, just a different 'god'.

    Up to a hundred or so years ago, no one gave a jax about the middle east until they found oil and once they run out of that, the region will return to a barren wasteland. Probably won't be in any of our lifetimes, but I'd say it will happen later in the century.
