Iraq, Iran, and Venezuela - a common thread
In 2000, Iraq switched away from selling oil for dollars, to selling oil for Euros. Then we went to war with Iraq.
Syria is trying to build a competing pipeline to oil to the European market. So we went to war in Syria.
In 2019, Venezuela and Iran created petro cryptocurrencies to use for oil trade. Now we're going to war with Iran. I suppose Venezuela was a little too close to home for an actual invasion, but we came close, didn't we?
Our entire foreign policy is being used exclusively to support the use of the USD as the global reserve currency. And the reason for that is because we're propping up our economy with debt. We could end this game tomorrow by eliminating our importing of oil, which happens to equal the amount of our trade deficit. But Big Oil isn't finished extracting - every last penny from you and me.
A dollar is only worth a nickel today, and these despicable characters will continue to siphon off every last bit of our national wealth until the whole thing crumbles. By design. Because then they'll just redraw the lines of the map to make this country a place where you and I live with less freedoms than we have now.
