From Algeria on the west to Pakistan in the east, the Middle East is in turmoil, and Washington watches helplessly as nation after nation reject its ham-handed but waning influence in the region. Washington has been playing both sides against the middle for so long that it seems unable to change. When you are sending foreign aid to both sides of the conflict, how do you determine when it’s time to change course? But perhaps I’m assuming too much. Maybe Washington does not want to change course.
I am not writing today to analyze Washington’s foreign policy as it relates to Israel and Israel’s neighbors. That would take a lot more effort that I care to expend. It matters not whether you agree or disagree with Washington’s Middle East foreign policy. It exists in its present form because of American interference in the Middle East since 1948.
But what happens to Israel when the American economy collapses?
Eventually, one or more of the following will occur:
1. The dollar will be replaced as the world reserve currency.
2. The world will slow drastically or stop buying US Treasury securities.
3. The dollar’s value will plummet as the Federal Reserve floods the world with trillions of dollars. That process has already begun worldwide.
4. Hyperinflation…inflation that occurs very rapidly…will occur first in America then around the world. Let’s define “hyperinflation” with Wikipedia’s definition: Hyperinflation becomes visible when there is an unchecked increase in the money supply (happening now) usually accompanied by a widespread unwillingness on the part of the local population to hold the hyperinflationary money for more than the time needed to trade it for something non-monetary to avoid further loss of real value. Hyperinflation is often associated with wars (or their aftermath), currency meltdowns like in Zimbabwe, and political or social upheavals, plus an aggressive bidding against the money on currency exchanges.
When the dollar is no longer the world reserve currency, Washington’s empire ends. When the dollar becomes worth less…or worthless, why will any nation want American dollars? And American dollars are the only tool that DC can use. Nations will settle debts with the new world reserve currency, which I predict will be the Chinese renmimbi (also called the yuan).
Islamic leaders have maintained for years that their resistance is because we have soldiers on the ground in Middle Eastern nations. The wars presently being waged by Washington that are helping to speed the bankruptcy of America will probably not cease until the dollar dies. Washington will be forced to withdraw troops from the Middle Eastern nations. The thorn in the paw of the Islamic lion will have been removed.
The Islamic world and Israel share one commonality. They will all lose Washington’s money and Washington will no longer be able to tell them what to do. Israel is protected by American might and American dollars. When American dollars go bye-bye, so will American might and influence.
Israelis today, with DC’s backing, vow to fight to the last man to protect their nation. That’s like the little guy in a bar getting all mouthy and picking fights, knowing his big brother has his back. So when the day comes when Big Brother can no longer protect Israel, they will negotiate with their neighbors for their survival. They won’t use their nuclear weapons, either.
At that point, Israel and its neighbors will learn to get along. I have heard some Islamic leaders say that they want to destroy Israel. But Jerusalem is as sacred to Islam as it is to the Israelis and Christians. Jerusalem has existed for thousands of years…the state of Israel has only been in its current iteration since 1948. So, Israel will not be destroyed.
Israel as a nation might cease to exist. The Palestinian people may finally be freed from their open-air prison.
The best thing to happen in the Middle East will be when Washington ceases its support of socialism and tyrannical despots in the Middle East nations. Then, and only then, will ALL the Middle East nations have the chance to experience the free market, capitalism and liberty. Finally, after over 60 years of American mismanagement and treachery, all the nations of the Middle East will have to find their own way.
Colony/states here in North America that secede will be too busy establishing their new nations to be involved in foreign aid fiascos and treaties. But they will certainly be very interested in becoming trading partners that Middle Eastern nations can trust. All other nations will be pleasantly predisposed to deal with a new nation that doesn’t propose to establish military bases on foreign soil. And, if the newly-minted nations of North America establish money based on precious metals, every nation around the world will get in line to buy, sell and invest in the only places on the planet where money means safety and honesty.
The liberty of seceded nations will make Switzerland jealous.
Secession is the Hope For Mankind. Who will be first?
