Downplaying Activities That Dictate Certain Geopolitical Goals
DOWNPLAYING ACTIVITIES THAT DICTATE CERTAIN GEOPOLITICAL GOALS
By Dennis L. Cuddy, Ph.D.
April 23, 2007
In my recent article "The Iraq War, Oil, and World Government," I quoted from a report produced by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and the James Baker III Institute a year before 9/11. Basically, it said that obtaining oil from the Caspian region would be important, but "diplomatic activities that dictated certain geopolitical goals" pertaining to transportation routes would be "downplayed" in this regard.
Since many have wondered what these secretive geopolitical goals were, I thought giving several examples of how the power elite operates in these areas would be instructive. For example, I have previously mentioned a 1952 map developed by the World Association of Parliamentarians for World Government regarding what nations' forces will police what other nations under a world government. This is because a nation's own soldiers would be less willing to crack down on its own population than would foreign troops.
Although economic forces are the driving mechanism the power elite is using to bring about a world government, enforcement of their will is always dependent upon military force or the threat of its use. Relevant to the U.S., if one were looking ahead in 1952, one would try to place permanent military forces as near as possible to both Russia and China, the 2 greatest threats to American interests. Strategically, the placement would be in the Caspian region of Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, etc., which is where the 1952 map has U.S. forces policing under a world government. About 10 years ago, the U.S. held military exercises in those areas, then negotiated "short term" military bases there after 9/11, but now these bases are appearing to be "permanent."
While protection of the new Afghan government and of Caspian oil routes against Taliban activities is given as the reason for this permanency, the "downplayed certain geopolitical goal" is the strategic permanent placement of forces between Russia and China.
Similarly concerning Iraq, the Project for the New American Century (PNAC) stated as a goal the permanent placement of American military forces in the Gulf region. Various rationales (e.g., Weapons of Mass Destruction, liberating Iraqis from a dictator, etc.) were given for the American invasion of Iraq. However, the allowance of continued chaos in Iraq has enabled the U.S. to persuade the new Iraqi government to permit the large American military bases recently constructed there to become, in effect, permanent. The accomplishment of this "downplayed certain geopolitical goal" places U.S. forces strategically between Syria and Iran to "police" the Middle East region. The Democrat response to the Iraq conflict was reflected by Sen. Carl Levin on FOX News Sunday, April 15, 2007, when he said political progress must be made by the Iraqis, or U.S. troops should start withdrawing. The majority Shiite response to this, though, will probably be that if our troops withdraw, that will just allow the Shiites to do as they please with the Sunnis.
While the American military is the most useful enforcement tool of the power elite at the moment, the eventual world government will have many nations' military forces involved. According to the 1952 map mentioned earlier, not only would U.S. troops also be policing Bosnia (where they went in 1995) under a world government, but Russian forces would be policing the U.S. from about Ft. Riley (KS) to Ft. Polk (LA) eastward to North Carolina. Not coincidentally, former Soviet bloc forces were engaged in joint military exercises in the mid-1990s at Ft. Riley, at Ft. Polk in August 1995, and a Russian police officer also in 1995 helped arrest someone in western North Carolina.
Pertaining to China, the 1952 map has Chinese (Mongolian) forces under a world government policing Mexico, where a Chinese company, Hutchinson-Whampoa, now operates the deep water port of Lazaro Cardenas. This is to facilitate the off-loading of Chinese containers from ships, and then moving the containers (largely uninspected and possibly containing Weapons of Mass Destruction) into the U.S. via the TransTexas Corridor and the TransAmerica Highway. This is occurring under NAFTA and the Security and Prosperity Partnership, which will bring about the North American Community and eventually the North American Union (just like the European Community led to the European Union).
This North American Union (with its new international currency, the Amero) can then be linked with others (e.g., the European Union with its currency, the Euro) to form a World Socialist Government. Most heads of European nations are already vice-presidents of Socialist International.
A World Socialist Government formed from the linkage of regional economic arrangements has been the power elite's ultimate "downplayed certain geopolitical goal," according to Cecil Rhodes' secret Society of the Elect plan. And the various currencies (e.g., Amero, Euro, etc.) will be replaced by one global currency, the Phoenix, by the year A.D. 2018 (see the cover of THE ECONOMIST, January 9, 1988).
Because the military is the key enforcement mechanism concerning Rhodes' and the power elite's plan, personnel becomes critically important. In that regard, when a number of generals criticized President Bush's handling of the Iraq war, they were dismissed or resigned, and the president reached down the ladder of ranking officers on August 1, 2003, to name a new Army Chief of Staff, Gen. Peter Schoomaker.
Why Schoomaker? He was Rhodes scholar Gen. Wesley Clark's assistant at Ft. Hood (TX) when the BATF raid on the Branch Davidian compound occurred. There was an actual mock-up of the compound built at Ft. Hood for training purposes.
After the raid, Schoomaker "met with Gov. Ann Richards on the evening of February 28, 1993, and answered her questions concerning the types of military equipment the BATF had used during the raid and the types of military equipment which federal law enforcement officials might use in the future" (see U.S. House of Representatives Report 104-749, "Investigation into the Activities of Federal Law Enforcement Agencies Toward the Branch Davidians," August 2,1996). Gen. Schoomaker had also advocated building training links to his Communist Chinese counterparts (see "U.S. Elite Forces Seek PLA Training Links," THE HONG KONG STANDARD, July 18, 1998). Schoomaker and Wesley Clark are just the type of military generals the power elite likes.
Of course, there's always an "incident" (e.g., the alleged sinking of THE MAINE by Spain in 1898), which allows the power elite to place military forces where their world government plan requires. The attack of 9/11 was the incident which allowed U.S. forces to be placed in the Caspian region. Now that American forces are in Iraq strategically between Iran and Syria, "incidents" can occur which will allow the invasion of those nations. Concerning Iran, it could be their involvement in the ongoing sectarian conflict in Iraq or Iran's development of nuclear weapons.
But what about Syria? The "incident" could be a new attack upon Israel by Syrian allies Hamas or Hezbollah, which is also supported by Iran. Or it could be our "discovery" that Syria is where Saddam sent his Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD).
We constantly hear that Saddam had no WMD, but that's ridiculous. We know he used WMD (chemical weapons) against Iran, so the only question is what did he do with them? It's doubtful Saddam voluntarily destroyed all his WMD, so at the appropriate time according to the power elite, we will "discover" Syria is where they were sent.
"Incidents" do not just occur internationally but also domestically. Another primary goal of the power elite is to disarm the citizenry so that people cannot resist the power elite's enforcement of its plan. Thus, the school shootings of several years ago prompted increased demands for gun control.
The power elite does not have to directly cause the "incident" (e.g., tell a student to shoot others), but rather dialectically creates situations from which "incidents" can occur. For example, I have a page from a DARE program in the Los Angeles schools which shows a boy looking at a gun and he's asked, "What good things can happen by bringing a gun to school?"
And before teenage blacks rioted in Florida in the 1970s, Carnegie-funded Project Read there taught black children in the 1960s how to read the word "porch," for example, by showing them a picture of a black child who would "torch" a "porch." Could this have influenced the 1970s teens? Florida prosecutor (later a judge) Ellen Morphonios said regarding this: "It's like subliminal advertising. If this isn't subversive and deliberately done as part of a master plan...only a sick mind could have produced it."
Similarly, the power elite wants to shape our thinking, especially in terms of values.
Therefore, they didn't direct the recent shooting at Virginia Tech University, but those shootings by a mentally disturbed student will prompt cries for more mental health screenings for all youth as well as others. And those screenings will afford the power elite the opportunity to shape what's considered appropriate mental health.
The Virginia Tech student who killed the others admired the Columbine student killers, calling them martyrs. And all 3 of them took their own lives (suicide). Some years ago, THE WASHINGTON POST reported a dramatic increase in youth suicides, and the POST then published my letter showing how elementary school children recently had been taught the theme song from "M.A.S.H.," which is "Suicide Is Painless." The song explains that the game of life is lost, cheating is the only way to win, and that suicide is painless. Concerning other means of conditioning youth's values, could the abundance of violent videogames also affect children's behavior?
Thus, while it is all right to look at events on the surface level, I always recommend that people not just take incidents at face value, but should also analyze them in terms of how they further the power elite's "downplayed certain geopolitical goal" of a World Socialist Government.

THE POWER ELITE'S USE OF WAR AND DEBT
By Dennis L. Cuddy, Ph.D.
April 30, 2007
Several hundred years ago, the Bank of England was established by money from the Bank of Amsterdam and the Dutch power elite, who also brought William and Mary to power in England in 1689. Within 9 years, King Willilam got the British Treasury in great debt to the Bank of England, following the power elite's principle of "get them in debt" to control them. This principle was used thorughout the 18th and 19th centuries via costly wars to control entire nations which had imperialist ambitions.
Tremendous fortunes were built during this time by the power elite, primarily reflected in emerging oil cartels such as Standard Oil (Rockefellers) with Anglo-Iranian (worked with Rhodes/Milner Group) and Shell (Royal Dutch, William and Mary came to England from Holland). By the early 20th century, John D. Rockefeller had his agents in every hamlet of the U.S., and foundations (e.g., Rockefeller) were used to further the power elite's designs. Congressional Research director Norman Dodd said that minutes from a Carnegie Endowment meeting revealed the attitude that war would be a primary vehicle for accomplishing their goals.
Both Presidents Woodrow Wilson and FDR have spoken and written about these powerful people who literally own our government. This power elite has had its operatives in key positions, and a young Druid, Winston Churchill, conducted a study of what the U.S. reaction would be if a passenger liner with Americans on board were to be sunk by a German submarine. Some years later, British Secretary of State Sir Edward Grey (close to the Rhodes/Milner Group) deliberately misled German Ambassador Lichnowsky to begin World War I. And Lord Esher (member of Cecil Rhodes' Circle of Initiates) plotted "to shed American blood as soon as possible" to get the U.S. into the war.
Why a war with Germany? This was done to weaken Germany militarily and economically as a threat to the power elite's plans, including access to Middle East oil. After the war, Sir Percy Cox (Rhodes/Milner Group) carved up the Middle East into various nations, establishing Kuwait as a block to Iraq's access to the sea, thus controlling oil routes. The First World War was also fought to get nations in debt and to bring about the power elite's League of Nations as a world government.
When the League wasn't successful, a second world war was needed, so the power elite built up Germany again as well as imperialist Japan, even selling the latter scrap metal with which to build warships. Nazi officers were on many Standard Oil tankers to be sure they weren't sunk. And the German General Staff developed a secret plan to bring about the power elite's control beginning in the 1990s (see Chapter 9 of Sumner Welles' THE TIME FOR DECISION, 1944). Prime Minister Churchill (who had a "secret circle") and FDR knew about the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in advance (see Skull & Bones member Henry Stimson's diary about FDR maneuvering Japan into firing the first shot). The Second World War also allowed the permanent stationing of U.S. forces in Germany and Japan.
After World War II, the power elite finally fulfilled the promise of the Balfour Declaration to the Jews, and the nation of Israel was established in 1948. This was not due to any particular affinity for the Jewish people, but rather to have a militarily strong but economically dependent (and therefore subject to coercion) country in the midst of Arab oil nations. An example of Israel being able to check Arab military efforts can be seen with the Israeli victory in their 1967 war. But the power elite's "management" of Israel can also be seen in the recent Israeli failure to crush Hezbollah, probably due to economic coercion (e.g., threats of no further loans or foreign investments).
The year after the founding of Israel, the power elite in 1949 facilitated the success of the Chinese Communists over Chinese Nationalists, who relocated largely to Taiwan, thus allowing the permanent presence of U.S. forces there. The permanent stationing of U.S. troops in South Korea near the north of China and the south of the USSR was facilitated by the deliberately "no win" Korean War in the early 1950s.
I have quoted many times Lincoln Bloomfield's 1962 study for the State Department, in which he indicated that if the Communist dynamic were greatly abated, the West might lose whatever incentive it has for world government. Thus, it was important to the power elite that the USSR and China be perceived as real threats so as to further the dialectical process that would synthesize Eastern Communism and Western Capitalism into a final World Socialist Government. Ford Foundation president H. Rowan Gaither in 1953 even told Norman Dodd (mentioned earlier) that they and others were under directives from the White House to so alter life in the U.S. as to make possible a comfortable merger with the Soviet Union.
Also in 1953, the independent elected Iranian leader, Mossadegh, was removed from office by the power elite (via the CIA and Allen Dulles) because he nationalized Iranian oil, which greatly displeased the oil cartel mentioned earlier. The year after Mossadegh was ousted, the Dutch (remember Royal Dutch Shell mentioned earlier) hosted the first Bilderberg meeting where, according to William Jasper in GLOBAL TYRANNY...STEP BY STEP, "the international ruling elite meet to scheme and palaver."
War was used by the power elite again in the 1960s and 1970s with the Vietnam War serving more than one function. First, it served to distract from radical domestic changes the power elite wanted, as described in James Kunen's THE STRAWBERRY STATEMENT. In this book, he revealed ESSO (Rockefeller) money was used to try to "buy up a few radicals" to seem so extremely liberal, the populace would not notice the power elite's own move to the left (e.g., "ping pong diplomacy" opening up China to the West). Also, Vietnam was another deliberately "no win" war that "turned off" youth from patriotic nationalism as part of the power elite's created "generation gap." That this can be recognized as part of the power elilte's plan is evident from Philip Freneau's July 1792 AMERICAN MUSEUM article, where he warns the young American Republic that getting people in debt and using military defeat (e.g., Vietnam War) were part of the elite's strategy to gain control of the U.S.
It was also toward the end of the Vietnam War that the power elite's agent, Henry Kissinger, revealed how they think about us common folk when he stated that soldiers are simply "dumb animals" to be used in the furtherance of an administration's foreign policy decisions. That the Vietnam War wasn't a "real war" seems clear from the fact that the U.S. continued financially to assist the USSR and China throughout the war, even though they were the 2 nations primarily responsible for North Vietnam's and the Viet Cong's ability to wage war against the U.S.
In the 1980s, the power elite turned its attention to the Persian Gulf causing a prolonged war between Iraq and Iran (both sides were assisted by the U.S.). Iraq won this war but accrued great debt as a result, and when the power elite denied Saddam Hussein loans to pay off the debt, he invaded Kuwait which he thought had given (not loaned) him the funds to conduct the war against Iran. In a repeat of Lord Grey's misleading Germany to begin World War I, American Ambassador to Iraq April Glaspie seems to have misled Saddam into thinking he would not be opposed if he invaded Kuwait. This was all done to "set up" Saddam, whom the power elite did not want to obtain undue influence over oil production in the Gulf region.
It was one thing to reduce Saddam's military strength in the first Gulf War, but it was quite another thing to persuade people to support an occupation of that nation. That would take a pretext or incident like 9/11, which Bush administration officials immediately tried to blame on Saddam. Remember that longtime Middle East CIA agent Robert Baer in SEE NO EVIL indicated that a high-ranking CIA officer said 9/11 would eventually be considered a "triumph" of the intelligence community, not a failure.
The prolonged chaos (now over 4 years) in Iraq has allowed U.S. troops to obtain a permanent military presence there in the region, which is what the power elite wanted all along. The removal of the Taliban from power in Afghanistan after the attacks of 9/11 also facilitated the permanent presence of U.S. military forces in the Caspian region, likewise part of the power elite's plan. According to famous author H. G. Wells in THE SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME (1933), there will be eventually a conference in Basra, Iraq, which will bring to fruition the power elite's ultimate goal of a World Socialist Government.
This goal has been pursued for many years using primarily wars and debt. For recent examples concerning debt accrued by means other than war, see John Perkins' AN ECONOMIC HIT MAN and Steve Hiatt's A GAME AS OLD AS EMPIRE. Examples include the Philippines being told to borrow great sums of money to improve its infrastructure so that factories will locate there, but then cheaper labor is found in other countries, so Filipinos are left holding the bag. Also, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank funnel loans to nations where dictators pocket the money in their offshore accounts, and the people of that country are left to pay the debt and restructure their economies along the lines required by the IMF and World Bank
