Follow The Money: Why Russia Is Triggering The U.S. War Machine


Russia recently announced plans to abandon the central banking system, in exchange for a gold-backed currency, which puts the Kremlin on a special list with nearly every country the United States has gone to war with this century. Why isn’t anyone talking about this?!

Do you remember that one time the U.S. government worked hand-in-hand with the mainstream media to convince you that we needed to invade Iraq because Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.

Well, that was a lie, but what was true was that Iraq dropped the US dollar in 2000. The US then invaded the country and overthrew Hussein in 2003.

Then in 2009, Libya’s Gaddafi dropped the US Dollar in an attempt to create a gold-backed African currency to compete with the Western central banking system.

The US overthrew Gaddafi in 2011.

Syria’s Bashar al-Assad dropped the US dollar in 2006, which just happens to be the same year the U.S. and its allies began discussing plans to overthrow Assad.

While Assad is still in power today, we can’t say the U.S. hasn’t gone out of its way in an attempt to overthrow him. From arming so-called moderate rebels, to destroying the region with a barrage of airstrikes, the US may have been able to achieve its goal if it wasn’t for one super power standing in the way… which brings us back to Russia.

It’s no secret that the mainstream media is used as a tool to push propaganda for the US government. If you look at every foreign leader the US has overthrown in this century, you will see a correlation between military action and the negative media coverage used to justify it.

In 2017, Russia, China and Iran are the current offenders, i.e. countries that have realized the value of a gold-backed currency, and that are acting accordingly.

The United States’ foreign policy is much greater than just who is in office, and the best way to predict which country will feel the wrath of the U.S. war machine next, you just have to follow the money.
