As a kid, I was fascinated by World War II. It was the quintessential and uncomplicated battle between good and evil. You knew who the good guys were, and they won.
What wasn’t there to like?
As I grew older, I began to understand the reasons why it started and when it started. And, there was a point when I asked myself:
What was it like to live at the beginning of such a massive world war?
I always wondered about that – what it was like to know that a world war was coming.
Unfortunately, now I know.

World War III – Syria was the Beginning
Rarely do we think about why wars start. We’re too busy trying to provide for our families and their future, to pause long enough to ask why we have fought so many wars.
Yes, we have the reasons recorded in the history books and on the headlines of our newspapers, but those of you who have been reading my articles know that those reasons are half-truths – at best. No, we go to war for those interchangeable commodities that we call money and power.
The Love Of Money
On Thursday, I wrote about the love of money being the cause of ‘This Horrifying Rendezvous with Destiny‘. Here’s what Paul said to Timothy:
For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. – 1 Timothy 6:10
By the way, this brings an important question to my mind:
Are you letting your love of the good life keep you from serving God or preparing for what is coming (so that you CAN serve God) ??
If you aren’t serving God with 100% of every bit of effort in you… If you aren’t doing the best that you can to get ready for what is coming… so that you can KEEP serving God with every bit of effort in you…
…you need to ask yourself why.
God certainly WILL when you see Him next.
Follow The Money
But, let’s get back to World War III.
If the love of money (and power) is the root of all evil, then maybe… if we look hard enough… we’ll see the money at the heart of this next World War. And, we really don’t need to look very hard at all.
After World War II, the world economy was based on US dollars, because the United States promised that every dollar would be convertible into gold, on demand – unless you were a US citizen. This was all according to something called the Bretton Woods Agreement.
Well, as you can imagine, the US government couldn’t keep her hand out of the cookie jar, and started abusing her position as head of the dollar empire. That put pressure on the agreement, so Nixon took us off of it on August 15th, 1971 – to the shock and dismay of the rest of the world.
The World Goes Fiat
In one fell swoop, all the world’s currencies suddenly became fiat – without a single ounce of gold backing them.
Let me quote Jerry Robinson of FTMdaily.com:
President Richard M. Nixon and his globalist sidekick, Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger, knew that their destruction of the international gold standard under the Bretton Woods arrangement would cause a decline in the artificial global demand of the U.S. dollar. Maintaining this “artificial dollar demand” was vital if the United States were to continue expanding its “welfare and warfare” spending. – Preparing for the Collapse of the Petrodollar System, Part 2
The Petrodollar Begins
THAT is when they hit on the idea of the Petrodollar – convincing the Saudis and the rest of OPEC to price their oil in US dollars, ONLY.
When did that begin?
Hmmmm… 1973. What a curious year for the petrodollar system to begin.
Why did they agree to do this in 1973?
Could it be that Israel’s success in defending herself in the 1973 Yom Kippur War frightened Saudi Arabia enough to finally agree to the US terms for this agreement?
Is this why Kissinger delayed seven days before being forced by Nixon to agree to Israel’s request for emergency support AFTER the Yom Kippur war began?
Kissinger – An Enemy Of Israel
Yes, you might not know this, but Kissinger has repeatedly thrown Israel under the bus. In fact, he is on record as wanting Israel defeated by her Arab neighbors, and he has stated that Israel will no longer exist by 2022.
The Terms Of The Petrodollar System
It’s hard to know what goes on in the corrupt mind of Henry Alfred Kissinger, but we do know that he engineered the success and the continuation of the American Empire by convincing the Saudis, and then OPEC, to do the following:
- The Saudis must agree to price all of their oil sales in U.S. dollars only. (In other words, the Saudis were to refuse all other currencies, except the U.S. dollar, as payment for their oil exports.)
- The Saudis would be open to investing their surplus oil proceeds in U.S. debt securities.
In return, the US agreed to give Arab members of OPEC as many weapons as they wanted and defend them from all threats – including from Israel.
That last bit, being defended from any threat by Israel, was probably the final selling point – one that Kissinger was probably not expecting, but more than willing to offer.
The Marriage Made In Hell
By 1975, the petrodollar was a done deal. OPEC agreed that none of their members would sell any oil for anything except US dollars. And, from that moment on, ALL US foreign policy would be directed at defending that agreement. It was a marriage made in Hell.
Now do you understand why the US invaded Iraq – twice?
For a pretty good (and short) discussion on the petrodollar system, watch this:

This video comes from an excellent four-part series on the petrodollar, called:
This is why the US has not been a friend of Israel and never will be. And, I saw it for myself, from Jerusalem.
The Syrian Connection
Now, the above video was recorded in 2010, before the War in Syria that was started by Saudi Arabia and Turkey in 2011 – to stop the Iran-Iraq-Syria natural gas pipeline. (Yes, you saw that right. The war in Syria was started by the Saudis and the Turks.)
Can you now understand why the US has been so intent on taking down the Assad government in Syria?
The US-Saudi Marriage
The US MUST keep their agreement with OPEC alive, or the American Empire falls. And, the Saudis aren’t happy. Combine that thought with a fascinating quote that I picked up from an article on danielpipes.org:
“When it comes to the Saudi-American relationship, the White House should be called the ‘White Tent.'”
– Mohammed Al-Khilewi, a Saudi diplomat who defected to the United States
So, there is this interesting give and take relationship between Saudi Arabia and the US. Saudi Arabia can destroy the US, if America doesn’t do what the Saudis want. And, the US can destroy Saudi Arabia, if the Saudis don’t do what America wants.
But, Unhappily Married
Unfortunately, the Saudis are becoming increasingly unhappy with the US. They aren’t getting a good rate of return on those treasury bonds that they’ve been required to buy. And, they aren’t happy with how slow America has been in granting their wishes. America has yet to attack either Iran or Syria, and the Saudis have become increasingly nervous about Iran.
Here Come The Russians
The US has become war weary and a little tired of Saudi games, and America has run smack-dab into the Russians in Syria. And, it was the threat of Russian reprisal that caused Obama to back down on his promised attack against the Assad regime in Syria in September, 2013. And, it is Russia’s entrance into this discussion that leads us to the threat of World War III.
But, let’s step back from the Russians a little and hear what Aaron Hawkins of stormcloudsgathering.com has to say about Iraq, ISIS and Syria:
YouTube shortlink: http://youtu.be/ey9tExYbjm8
That is a must-see video, but Aaron Hawkins misses the Saudi connection. The Saudis are pushing the US right back into the Syrian conflict. Unfortunately, THAT puts us directly into a collision with Russia, and Russia has warned in the past that it will be forced to use nuclear weapons to protect her interests in Syria.
History will record that World War III began in 2011 when Turkey and Saudi Arabia created the uprising against Assad in Damascus.
The only question is when this war goes nuclear.
Are you ready for this?
