Not a word on the U.S. and E.U. motivations for causing this war?
Why now? Why all this rage? How can Ukraine be so existential for the West?
This time the West defends its magic “fiat”-based monetary system… by taking it down to replace it by even worse (central bank digital currency imposed to captive citizen) - and this time, the rest of the World is not going to buy it.
Let’s start with the all-time motivation winners:
THE MILITARY-INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX
(weapons paid by the taxpayer)
“It is part of the general pattern of misguided policy that our country is now geared to an arms economy which was bred in an artificially induced psychosis of war hysteria and nurtured upon an incessant propaganda of fear. While such an economy may produce a sense of seeming prosperity for the moment, it rests on an illusionary foundation of complete unreliability and renders among our political leaders almost a greater fear of peace than is their fear of war.”
-General Douglas McArthur (1880-1964), 1952
FINANCE ESCAPING THE CONSEQUENCES OF FRAUD
(the 2008 crisis, infinite free money for “the markets” but not for all, the Covid scam, etc.)
“The essential act of war is destruction, not necessarily of human lives, but of the products of human labour. War is a way of shattering to pieces, or pouring into the stratosphere, or sinking in the depths of the sea, materials which might otherwise be used to make the masses too comfortable, and hence, in the long run, too intelligent.”
-Emmanuel Goldstein, “1984” (part 2, chapter 9)
But there’s a more recent trend:
Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi were killed and IRAK/LYBIA invaded after they started selling OIL in different currencies than the US dollar (impeding the petro-dollar system).
Wars are started to preserve the USD status of the main international reserve currency.
YET, RUSSIA WENT FURTHER BY INTRODUCING "BRETTON WOODS III"
“Bankers dominate both business and government because they have the ability to supply or refuse to supply the capital required to anyone. Controlling the [fiat] money supply allows manipulators to create alternate cycles of boom and bust, scarcity and abundance, at will, hereby controlling the world economy.”
-John Coleman, “Conspirators’ Hierarchy: The Story of the Committee of 300”
And today in 2022:
"The game of nominal value of money is over, as this system does not allow to control the supply of resources. Our product, our rules. We don’t play by the rules we didn’t create."
-Alexey Miller, head of Gazprom, Saint Petersburg International Economic Forum (June 16th, 2022)
Russia just introduced monetary system based on natural resources (tangible assets).
The model that Zoltan Poszar (“Bretton Woods III”, Credit Suisse) called “outside money”: natural resources, as opposed to the occidental “interior money” based on confidence (fiat money) and which is created by expanding debt forever - a model used to dominate without ever delivering value (through tangible counter-parties generated by work and natural resources).
“From the Bretton Woods era backed by gold bullion, to Bretton Woods II backed by inside money (Treasuries with un-hedgeable confiscation risks), to Bretton Woods III backed by outside money (gold bullion and other commodities).”
-Zoltan Poszar (“Bretton Woods III”, Credit Suisse)

“Bretton Woods” refers to the international monetary system put in place after World War II.
It was based upon a hybrid reserve standard of gold and the U.S. dollar.
In 1971 Richard Nixon unilaterally broke the link between the U.S. dollar and gold, defaulting on the U.S. obligation to exchange dollars held by other central banks for gold at a fixed exchange rate.
“Bretton Woods II” introduced a system of floating exchange rates among fiat currencies not backed by gold. This is “inside money”: fiat currency reserves held by and at central banks, and the belief that these assets were as good and as safe as physical gold held in central bank vaults under the original Bretton Woods regime.
This system exploded in March 2022 by the decision of the U.S. and other large central banks to freeze the foreign exchange reserves deposited with them by the Russian central bank. Confidence has been destroyed, and everybody wondered who would be next on the U.S. target list.
“Bretton Woods III” comes back to tangible assets: “outside money” (gold bullion and other commodities). This implies the demolition of “Bretton Woods II” - the international financial system which has been in place for half a century - and a most likely “haircut” for stock/real-estate investors (since the value of these assets has been inflated by money created out of thin air).
“There are few historians who would challenge the fact that the funding of World War I, World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War was accomplished … through the Federal Reserve System. An overview of all wars since the establishment of the Bank of England in 1694 suggests that most of them would have been greatly reduced in severity, or perhaps not even fought at all, without fiat money. It is the ability of governments to acquire money without direct taxation that makes modern warfare possible, and a central bank has become the preferred method of accomplishing that.”
-G. Edward Griffin, “The Creature from Jekyll Island”
THOSE NOT LEARNING FROM HISTORY…
The alleged distinction between currency versus money deliberately ignores and misunderstands the actual history of the emergence of metal money as means to pay mercenaries, which was the actual context inside of which gold became the money of the War Kings, which gradually morphed to become the electronic money of the Fraud Kings, the international bankers:
“The first panacea of a mismanaged nation is inflation of the currency; the second is war. Both bring a temporary prosperity; both bring a permanent ruin. But both are the refuge of political and economic opportunists.” -Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961)
“Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few. No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.”
-James Madison (1751-1836), fourth president of the United States (1809-1817)
“They say the problem is civil disobedience. But that is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is the large number of people around the world who are following the dictates of their government and are therefore going into wars where millions of people are killed because of this civilian obedience. Our problem is that people are obedient, filling the prisons for trifles, while the big criminals do the state business. That’s our problem.”
-Howard Zinn, American historian (1922-2010)
