disaster du jour syria?


DISASTER DU JOUR SYRIA?

Is the daily special on the disaster/collapse menu Syria?  Does the three day weekend mean that, hey, just for craps and giggles Obammy is going to bomb yet another country ( can we still give him another Nobel Peace Prize? ) instead of playing golf with his bankster buddies or some midnight basketball with his homies in da hood?  Inquiring minds would indeed like to know.  Well, I have a bit of bad news for you.  Whoever the minds inquire to, ain’t nobody telling anybody spit.  The Blogosphere rustles with the flatulent utterings of self- appointed amateur commentators, and yet even if one were to slaughter extra chickens to study their entrails, no sense can be made.  There are simply too many variables.  Is this an actual attack for a military or strategic advantage?   Is it a slight of hand to keep our eyes away from other activities?  Is the circus of news itself the distraction, with no actual attack ever contemplated?  Is Obammy being instructed to poke the China Dragon and the Russian Bear until he gets a hostile reaction?  If so, why?  Are the market borsches going to be shut down on an excuse?  Is the oil supply contracting so much we must rush into heretofore marginal oil grounds such as Libya and Syria?  All of these simply questions are not being answered, but instead the same pale excuses of Israel attacking a nuke plant that’s been used to keep us discombobulated for something like going on five years or more ( kind of like the economic meltdown in the EU has been an obvious ruse this whole time ) keeps being used. 

*

Since the thin veneer of that excuse is now tissue paper thickness, they were so desperate they pulled a Bush playbook move and tried the Weapons Of Mass Destruction.  Not that too many people buy into that one.  Well, enough do to make the others trying to think not matter in the slightest.  All day long, folks are opening up conversations with me, “ain’t it terrible what they’re doing to their own people?”.  Baby Jesus himself weeps.  This is the level of information the general public gets from the mass media.  The folks who think we’ve been in a recovery with green shoots for five years.  The minority, those that Question Authority rather than rush towards it with thin wallet and open arms, are starting to worry.  What if our masters are such damn fools that they don’t back down from confrontation and things escalate out of control?  One minion is taking a timely vacation and another wonders why no one is writing about this very potential Shiite Hits The Fan moment.  To the first, it never hurts to be extra paranoid ( and what a perfect time to get away.  Every boss will think it is a perfectly normal three day holiday vacation ).  As for the second, refer to the start of the article.  We can’t know this Is It.  We don’t have the correct question to try to answer.

*

So, let’s assume we skate by this mess on a RCH ( red crotch hair, almost scientifically proven to be the narrowest, thinnest substance known to man.  As in, by the thinnest margin possible ).  If we don’t, it is a little bit late to do a Gott Damn Thing, yes?  I don’t think I have to remind you not to go shopping AFTER the end has started.  Don’t even go out if the stores are more crowded than normal prior to rising tensions unless you live in a small rural area where crowds of Skittle Eaters Gangs are not present.  For those worried I’m being mean, consider our talks about ghetto dwellers and flash mobs, in relatively good times, getting the green light from King Kenya Kunt and Homo Holder the Attorney General to stomp Whitey’s pale ass ( I would NOT put it past those two Uncle Toms to agitate the mobs prior to the event to keep things interesting for Whitey Honkey Mo Fo Cracker Militia Survivalists ).  If you survive this, just let it be a lesson to you.  No matter how inadequate your preps are, you’re just going to have to accept them.  Do NOT try for last minute shopping if it might be anywhere near dangerous.  Hopefully, one day, you say, “oh, what the hell.  I’m good enough.  Close enough for government work.  Whatever happens tomorrow, I’m prepared enough to hopefully skate by”. 

*

Because we are lied to in such a systematic way, we can’t guess the truth or the timing.  Just Be Ready, Already.  It is as simple as that.  You can put all the lipstick on that pig you want, it don’t make it your date.  Anything else is making a problem where it shouldn’t be.  NOTHING is worth your life, last minute possession wise.  I’m sure I’ll talk at you all Monday morning, despite the wild rumors.  Not that something couldn’t happen.  Just that it would be too easy if we could see whatever it is coming this soon prior to an event.  Remember Y2K?  The lesson was, be prepped already and don’t sweat the spell cast by the government and their lackeys.  I’m going to finish about 10% short today.  You got extra yesterday, and today I’m a smidge short on my lunch hour.  Best of luck to us all this weekend.

    1. I never know if you are serious, but here goes. How is Fukishima so much deadlier than all the above ground testing from the 50's?

      the japs were storing tons of spent fuel rods. wonder what

      they were up to?

      for two and a half years radiation has been leaking into

      the ocean,not a trickle, millions of gallons. the fuel

      rods are still burning out of control.the whole

      place is sinking into the ground. expect another major

      event in the future. it is out of control. there is nothing

      that can be done.

      got room for me at your place? i've never been to africa

      before.

    4. Tree house buddy? Dont know about that but im here. Been here for years. Nightsoil, I wish we had ten years. I see a major life style change in less that two. Or sooner. I mean major, not just cutting back.

      Jim, if obammy manages to pull off attacking Syria, we will be opening the biggest can of worms one dares to imagine. SHTFplan site had a great article about what to expect. Scary stuff.

    5. I dont think we will get two years Nightsoil. Syria will just open the door if Obammy pulls off his plans. Russia aint playing. We will lose alot here and over there.....

      Fukishima? Bad but I think worse for fisheries and seafood. Youd think someone could stop that.

      Im confused by your tree house buddy reference but that is not the first time you lost me. Lol

    6. I normally like the articles on SHTF but rarely go there. I have broadband and still the thing is so larded with graphic ads it bogs down.

    7. Night SOIL- thanks, I'll hopefuly get around to reading on the Fuki leaking. I am concerned, but I just don't know if I can buy ELE. But then, I still need to read up on it, so I could be wrong.

  2. Lord Bison - I must respectfully add that I think this whole Syria debacle makes for classic "slow-collapse" material.

    Whenever you read about empires that went down the drain, one of the most significant traits is that the empire had "endless wars". If we go into Syria, it merely means that our 11+ years of war will conveniently turn into 13+ years of war.

    The posturing of the fedgov, while simultaneously showing a modicum of hesitation, is only a ruse to buy time.

    They want to find out how many allies we have on this one (only France so far), and they want some time for the government bean-counters to run the simulation reports on whether this next phase of militarization will be the one that sinks us (the answer is 'no', but only because of the 'new normal' that you mentioned in yesterday's article).

    We need a rationalization to keep up the deficit spending, and Syria looks like it might just be the ticket. The fedgov's goal is to keep a positive light on the party (in this case, the dems / left) while they slowly crush the purchasing power of the US dollar.

    It would be an outrage to actually let some of our defense contracts expire and to also make it seem like we're not "serious" about our position on chemical weapons. So the fedgov solution is to feign outrage and keep opening the wallet. Again, I consider this just another swing of the axe. It will take many chops to fell the tree.

    Personally, I think we're 3-15 years out. The slow collapse started with the crazy deficit spending of the 60s (the Great Society programs) and it will climax with the bankrupting power of endless wars.

    Of course it helps that our manufacturing base has disappeared, social welfare programs have only grown, and that we as consumers no longer understand the value of being frugal. The dumb "prepper" on his special 40-year mortgaged homestead holds his plastic .308 rifle that he bought on credit and thinks it will protect him against Syrians. He doesn't get see the big picture.

    The answer is frugality. Live below your means. If you make a bunch of money, that's great. You're an American success! But don't spend it all in one place..."Mr. Prepper".

    1. Although, ya gotta admit, as much fun as it is sometimes, The Big Picture is still a lot of work and a pain in the ass. One can almost forgive not wanting to play.

  3. Maybe fearless leader should go to Syria and talk to them, create a dialog and communicate. That is how he talked about world problems in the fall of 08.

    1. Or, we send in a SEAL team, "disappear" the prez., claim he is on the bottom of the ocean, and prove it all with a blurry cell phone picture.

  4. All this is about is encirclement of iran.ONCE we have troups in syria we have the eastern boarder covered.Iran,s push to kill the dollar is what is feared.It has nothing to do with syria.This is to stop the BRIC Iran is the oil exporter of BRIC

    ReplyDelete

    1. I'd buy that but it seems out of date. The dollar is being ignored by many nations. Iranian Borse is almost irrelivant. And haven't we circled them enough? And this ignores the Russia in BRIC, or even the China which is largely run on coal. And perhaps soon Canadian tar sands ( pipeline fiasco ).

    2. But we can not challange China or Russia.Iran is the member we can win against.And its the only net exporter of oil.This also sends a message to other exporters of oil

      Delete
    3. But Iran IS backed by Russia with China perhaps. Not to the extent of Syria, but I'd still think the reason no one has proked Iran too much, besides the obvious Straights Of Hormuz, is that they are sponsored. Along the lines of N. Korea and China. I could be way off. I'll have to confess to a bit of normalicy bias on the middle east. And what is this we hear on Saudi and Russia talking about a deal? Interesting things afloat.

  5. Personally I believe it is a attempt to maintain control of the great ditch known as the Suez canal. With Egypt going down the tubes, we need to control at least one side of the ditch to maintain a military precence in the region. This coming from someone who has done the Suez safari eight times .Having said that the reason the hubbub was done on Friday was hoping Jack and Jane was too busy packing the hamburgers and kids into the SUV to notice .

    1. Okay, but isn't Suez benefiting Europe alone? Are we that desperate to save Europe economically we will wage war with Russia? Who could retaliate by cutting off gas to Europe?

  6. As to yer last comment, Biden would be even more useless . Careful what you ask for.
