You can almost hear the click, as each domino crashes against the next one. And, they’re all lined up, ready to deliver us to financial Armageddon and World War III.
Russia did a deal with Iran. China pushes Switzerland away from the Euro. Greece begins it’s run for the exit. And, an officer from within the Russian army gives us a taste of what would REALLY happen should any of us face the Russian Bear, on the field of battle.
And, let’s not forget that the passing of Saudi King Abdullah has Shiites everywhere abuzz over the coming of the Mahdi.
This Mahdi is no one that your mother would approve of.

Dominoes Continue to Fall
I’ve been down for the count with the worst case of the flu in decades, and I am just now recovering from that foul virus. Why that poor excuse for a life-form should choose to pounce on me is hard to fathom.
I mean. There I was… minding my own business …and then WHAM!
I was down, and wondering what hit me.
So, I’m afraid that you won’t get much in the way of insights on Israel from me, other than in-depth comments on the brilliant shade of white that is standard for interior walls here in Jerusalem.
Here’s hoping that next week will allow me to offer something more pithy and interesting about the hustle and bustle of Israeli life.
Of course, it’s not like there isn’t enough dire news to keep us entertained.
Take Iran, for instance.
(No, really. I insist. Half price.)
In just a week, Iran saw a massive increase in their relationship with their northern benefactor, Russia:
Russia & Iran forge military compact as Iran & Hezbollah vow massive attacks on Israel’s northern tier.
AND, their arch enemy, King Abdullah died, unleashing massive speculation about the imminent arrival of the Mahdi. And, if this Mahdi delays his arrival, Iran is primed to help make the way, by bathing the world in death and chaos.
According to Shiite hadiths, after the death of a king named Abdullah in the Hijaz — a western region of present-day Saudi Arabia — no successor to the throne would be accepted, and disagreements would escalate and persist until the rise of Imam Mahdi.
That quote comes from here:
When King Abdullah ascended to the throne of Saudi Arabia in 2005, Shiite scholars joyfully proclaimed that the Mahdi would come when he died. Here’s another relevant quote from the article:
According to the book “250 Signs Until the Appearance of Imam Mahdi,” Prophet Muhammad said: “On doomsday, a man who is carrying the name of an animal ascends to the throne, after which a man named Abdullah comes to the power. Whoever informs me of his death, I will inform him of the rise [of Mahdi]. After Abdullah passes away, for several days and months, the government will appear.”
This means that Iran feels anointed with a messianic duty to ensure that this prophecy by Muhammad comes true – and in the way that benefits them the most. In fact, they’ve had more than nine years to prepare for this moment in time.
It makes me wonder what plans Iran has for us.
Gog And Magog Rise
So, let’s turn to Iran’s benefactor, Russia.
What a superb international game Obama is playing. He has Russia so diplomatically isolated that she has only managed to do major deals with tiny countries like China, Iran and Turkey.
Oh, I’m sorry…
…Was my sarcasm showing?
What we are seeing is the start of the formation of that grand alliance called Gog and Magog. America has backed Russia into a corner and forced her to make alliances with people that the Russian Bear had been keeping at arm’s length. But now, Turkey and Iran are being brought firmly into Russia’s sphere of influence.
These deals would NOT have happened, if the United States and Saudi Arabia had not chosen to play games with Russia.
What a bunch of incompetent, evil-hearted fools.
Russian Military Superiority
And, when Russia DOES turn its sights on the US, this is how the US Army, Air Force and Navy will know that they are being attacked by Russia:
The first sign – failure of all means of communication, full discharging of batteries in vehicles, tanks and other equipment, at the same time, discharge of batteries in mobile phones, the targets, and radio stations. Then, there is a rapture of electric circuits throughout all the equipment – all of it. This is EMP. All engines stall, no way to restart. This is how the system “X” works (in order to protect the author we do not specify the name), with a range of up to 20 km.
Second – complete failure of all systems using LCD monitors, the failure of all target-locating devices of the air defense system. This is how the complex “Altair” works (this is a known complex in the world, we can name it).
Third – a failure to deploy any kinds of guided missile weapons – from MANPADS to PTURS [anti-tank guided reactive missile]. Upon launching, the ammunition liquidates itself.
Those are the words of an active duty officer in the Russian armed forces.
Did that send chills through you?
It should, because the American armed forces are NOT ready for directed EMP weapons. And, where such weapons exist as a part of front-line battle units, you can bet that they are standard throughout the Russian military.
More importantly, this indicates that EMP weapons are a part of Russia’s strategic doctrine. An EMP attack upon America would kill far more Americans in a far more awful way than a more ‘traditional’ nuclear war.
We Americans are going to lose World War III, if we cannot get our diabolical leadership in Washington D.C. to stop their mad games of empire.

For an excellent overview of these mad, geopolitical games of power, read this excellent interview with George Friedman of Stratfor:
Whatever you may think of George Friedman, no one can fault his grasp of the geopolitical implications of our current situation.
China And The Swiss Franc
Now, I would like to step away from the catastrophe brewing in the Ukraine and talk about a falling domino that I mentioned last week. I called it:
Switzerland Fights Back
Well, Switzerland’s withdrawal from a fixed exchange rate with the Euro, continues to cause falling dominoes everywhere. In fact, some of those ‘falling dominoes’ are a repeat from the financial catastrophe of 2007 and 2008:
This happened the last time the financial system crashed, so it’s proof that people never learn. But, I’m more interested in another bit of fascinating evidence.
Most people focus on all the ‘normal’ reasons for why Switzerland removed the peg between the Swiss Franc and the Euro, but there’s one bit of evidence that most financial journalists conveniently overlook:
Here’s a quote from that article:
Under the deal to be signed on Wednesday, China will give Switzerland a quota of 50 billion yuan (about $8 billion), under its Qualified Foreign Institutional Investor (QFII) scheme to support the establishment of the Zurich offshore RMB market.
The first branch of a Chinese bank will be set up in the Swiss financial hub for future RMB clearance after it gets approval from regulators of both sides.
So, here’s a question:
Do you think that China would have gone ahead with this deal, if the Swiss Franc was still married to the Euro?
Of course not. China isn’t stupid. So, you can bet that China put pressure on Zurich to let the Euro go.
And, it must not have been a difficult decision to make. After all, the choice was between a Euro linked to collapsing economies with no future, or a Yuan backed by the brightest economic powerhouse on the planet.
David Kranzler was the one who got me thinking about all this with his article, here:
Greece And The Grexit
And then, let’s not forget the coming exit of Greece from the Eurozone.
The big win in Greece by the Syriza party is very, very bad news for Europe. Syriza will demand a better deal from Brussels, and if they get that ‘better deal’ – everyone else will want one too. If Syriza DOESN’T get their ‘better deal’, they’ll leave the Euro and default on all their debts.
Either way, Europe will fall apart and the financial shockwaves will be felt in every bank account in every country, around the world.
More specifically, in YOUR bank account.
Prepare for apocalypse.
Can you hear the dominoes fall?
I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this
