    Research the Kaye Griggs interviews… they will tell you all about how the USG got control over the Saudi royalty. And how they control just about anyone today. they “Faggotize” them and then threaten them with exposure.

    isn’t it possible these so-called revolutions are simply a way for the US to remove regimes they can no longer do business with?…. shedding skin, transition to pseudo democratic system instead of outright dictatorship?

    head of intelligence is now VP in egypt…it’s hard to know what’s going on there, so much disinformation and conflicting opinions.

    The US will not walk away from oil

    Every great empire (and whether you hate em or love em the US is indeed a great empire) has never relinquished power without a fight.

    If faced with oil starvation the US will simply invade – there is no army on the planet that can stop them – might is right in their eyes

    They will broker all sorts of deals before invading – what do they care if they snapple the majority of the worlds supply while the rest of the world starves and goes without.

    It’s one thing to topple a corrupt dictator but quite another to topple one that is so well connected, controls information flow, has the worlds largest and most sophisticated military

    The US will go down eventually but it will take bit by bit for it to happen – a Saudi revolt isn’t going to topple the US in and by itself – it may act as a nail in the coffin but it’s not burial time yet for the US – it still has a pulse and hasn’t died and started rotting yet so plenty of people i the world still cling to it for hope (as sad as this is).

Its either has sometihng to do with the crops being grown around us. Or the new cell tower they just put up this summer close to us. I’m thinking its the cell tower and its electromagnetics.

    Agreed…..unit labour cost, providing the barbarians with our technological advantage, western corruption, unwinnable expensive wars compounded by decadence has taken care of that…..classic re-run of the fall of Roman Empire.

    Fall of Saudi Arabia to End (Petro) Dollar Reserve System?

    This would change everything overnight. Of course the US would collapse (sooner) because of it. Like yesterday.

    Fourth Turning is all I can say at this point in time. It’s very scary to be alive at this time in history, but at the same time, very exciting! I also have to say, unless you live in a cave, most of this was predictable, even going back pre – Ronny years. What an ass he was.

    One of the reasons I hang around this web site is every now and then a reference source is revealed that is worth putting into my Bookmarks (or Favorites, depending on the browser I’m using).

    This time the jewel is here:

    I just finished reading the archives here:

    http://www.thedailybell.com/archive.asp

    And the The Daily Bell has a free subscription. That sort of puts to rest the thought that anything free is not the best. That is proven wrong by The Daily Bell.

    Well worth susbcribing to, in my opinion.

    Investors revel in Spanish bank La Caixa listing plan http://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/Investors-revel-Spanish-bank-afp-1325195185.html

    Shares in an offshoot of Spain’s biggest savings bank La Caixa rocketed 17% Friday on news that it will be transformed into a major retail banking operation.

    Investors reacted with glee to La Caixa’s plan to transfer its entire 9.48-billion-euro ($13.0 billion) retail banking business into its listed investment arm Criteria, to be re-born as CaixaBank.

    As a result, it would become one of Europe’s top ten financial institutions by market capital.

    There are three major steps in La Caixa’s complex listing operation:

    — First, La Caixa will transfer its retail banking operations into its wholly owned affiliate Microbank.

    — Second, La Caixa will transfer all Microbank shares — valued at 9.48 billion euros ($13 billion) — into its listed investment banking arm, Criteria.

    — Third, Criteria will absorb Microbank and become a credit institution with the name CaixaBank.

    I am SO TIRED of the corporate opportunism and over emphasis of the role that Twitter and Facebook has in these revolutions.

    WE DO NOT NEED FACEBOOK AND TWITTER FOR A REVOLUTION! Look at all the revolutions before 1999, did they need Twitter and Facebook? Nope. The French Revolution, the Bolshevik Revolution, The American Revolution, all done without the internet.

    In fact, these open social networks may even stall revolution and give more information for the government to crack down on protest.

    Social media is nothing with out the people’s anger. If FB and T were the cause of these revolutions we would be seeing a huge revolution in the U.S. right now. But all we have here are boot lickers, Farmville players, and narcissistic idiots!!!!

    Look at these stats:

  33. Danny Cunnington says:

    If Saudi Arabia kicks off then Iran is the big winner. I find it hard to believe that the western imperialists would not intervene directly. If the US were faced with the prospect of the end of the Dollar’s role as an oil currency, it would likely want to stop all oil out the Middle East. The way to do that is to attack Iran militarily so that the Iranians close the Straits of Hormuz. That kettles the majority of the Middle Eastern oil exports. To do this, they would have to use naval power otherwise they end up kettled as well so although they are unquestioningly the greatest sea power on the planet, they are still at risk especially from sea skimming missiles and Russian made Hypersonic cruise missiles. (Sunburn ssn25)

    Of course doing that would cause a major economic collapse in several major economies. Japan would melt down completely in less than six weeks.

  35. Romain says:

    It’s is not because of the internet that a revolution would start.

    Revolutions always come from the combination of two factors:

    1) the people
    2) an external power or a higher power

    if the tunisian revolution was “successful” , it is because the army stopped supporting Ben Ali. Also the army in tunisia has been equipped and trained with western cooperation. It is probable that western companies’ business in tunisia was starting to be hampered by the corruption of benali’s networks.

    If you don’t agree with this ask yourself why the Russian revolution of 1905 didnt work and that of 1917 (supported by wall street) was successful.

    Same thing for the first French revolution.
    two elements:

    – angry and starving people
    – influence of masonic lodges within the country and from an external power: England ( england took over many French colonies due to the inability of France to intervene because of the Revolution)

    —————-
    IRAN revolution when the US stopped to back the SHah

    etc. etc
    ————-
    Finally, it is DEFINITELY not Facebook that will trigger anything. Support of lack of support from the US will be a determining factor.
    —————–

    Also the Jasmine revolution is a fraud and its silly name makes it even more obvious. Coloured revolution:

    green in Iran
    orange in Ukraine

    were ALL supported by the US (and its allied)

    ———————

    I also agree with @BOB when he says than any power never reliquished power without a fight.

    Don’t be naive to think that facebook and internet will be enough for people to bring down the system.
