America's Secret War Plans Against the Red Empire, Economic Depression's Ultimate Conclusion

Politics / GeoPolitics Sep 21, 2011 - 01:22 AM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Politics

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTop secret documents reveal America's 1930's plan of war against the Red Empire, but America's foe in this war was not the Soviet Union or Japan, it was not even Nazi Germany, plan red was code for an apocalyptic war with Britain and all its dominions. The plan emerged from the Great Depression amidst the rise of evil regimes at a time when even some in America had been seduced by dark forces.


"I am speaking to you from the cabinet Room of 10 Downing Street, this morning the British Ambassador in Washington handed the American Government a final note stating that unless we heard from them by 11 o'clock that they were at once to withdraw their troops from Canada, a state of war would exist between us, I have to tell you now that no such undertaking has been received and that consequently this country is at war with America." Prime Minister Chamberlain

In the 200 years since the American Revolution, the United States and Great Britain have moved from enemies to firm allies. This documentary follows military experts and historians as they work through the top secret 'War Plan Red' to see how a hypothetical battle between America and Great Britain might have unfolded.

First broadcast at 20:00 20 Sep 2011 - Available until 20:00 19 Sep 2012

The Lesson From History?

Wars follow economic depressions, and the enemy may not be who you think it will be.

Whilst we can discount a war between America and Britain today, after all the red empire now only exists in the history books. There remain several candidates beyond the usual suspects.

To the North is Canada (for which the US has been actively planning to invade for close on 200 years), to the South is Mexico (there have been several wars of conquest already), To the West is China and to the East is Africa (the past decade has seen much action).

I think we can discount Europe and Russia, ..... for now as likely the forces of these military blocks could be utilised in an 'Allied' attack on China as one empire rises and another empire declines.

Now what usually happens the politicians coupled with the intelligence agencies who's primary function is to spread misinformation and propaganda via the mainstream media will seek to demonise and dehumanise the Chinese into a new evil empire, to build up a fever of nationalism in the general population so that they will be eager to lay down their lives on mostly the basis of lies just as countless have fallen for the Iraq threat propaganda and many of whom still continue to believe the lie that somehow Iraq was behind Sept 11th stockpiled with invisible WMD's that were an imminent threat to America and the West.

Economic Depressions are dangerous because they provide easy fuel for the politicians to inflame nationalism with the ultimate conclusion is to mobilise the millions of unemployed towards war on a scale that would make Iraq and Afghanistan look like a picnic. Therefore those that rightly criticise the bailouts of banks and even whole countries and the inflationary stimulus spending (including yours truly) need to contemplate the broader picture beyond monetary considerations in that these fiat paper printing actions are mere tips of an ice-berg of what could follow if trends were allowed to proceed towards their logical conclusions, because just as all countries are trending towards debt default bankruptcy and an hyperinflationary panic event (loss of confidence in fiat currency), all countries are also trending towards their own destruction as we repeatedly see but yet fail to acknowledge i.e. Iraq destroyed, Afghanistan destroyed, Libya, Egypt, Syria, pending....?

Greece appears on the fast track towards economic collapse and war with its neighbours (Macedonia ? Turkey? Albania? ), so I can well understand why the Euro-zone will try its hardest to not let it leave because they may well understand that it would open Pandora's box that has kept ancient hatreds in check and thus so far succeeded in preventing a Europe wide war for over 60 years, which is the primary purpose for the creation of the European Union, to anchor Germany down to such an extent so as to prevent Germany from starting its third World War that would result in the annihilation of Europe and much of the rest of the world.

Conclusion

The continuing trend of economic stagnation is stoking the fires of paranoid nationalism that will ultimately result in the need to create enemies to be dealt with for which the prime candidate at this point in time is the emerging China superpower, though when paranoid nationalism lets rip anything is possible, anyone can become 'the enemy'.

The War on Terror and the stripping away of many civil liberties and freedoms so that anyone that does not agree with the military machine must therefore be a traitor, which has created the backdrop for the next phase for the militirisation of America as the only growth industry appears to be the military industrial complex which requires expanding budget deficits and an never ending stream of new enemies to justify its expansion. Watch out for The Patriot Act II, then III, then The Traitor Act I. At the end of the day the enemy will morph to become the general population.

We may well look back on Greece Going bankrupt and leaving the Euro-zone as the spark that ignited World War III, which means that Greece probably won't leave the Euro-zone even when it does go bankrupt.

Western Collapse

Hello Nadeem

Europe Has been reletively peaceful for the last 60 years.

I would agree, this is NOT the norm.

I remember you gave a chance of hyperinflation %, where do you see it now, and what do you use to come to yor conclusion?

Many, many thanks for posting this article.

Hyperinflation

Hi

Hyperinflation is a political panic event.

All countries are trending towards this ultimate outcome.

Brilliant Work

Excellent summary, Nadeem_Walayat, you hit the major trends and consequences spot on and people really should be planning accordingly because all of the events that are occuring are not isolated---they have precedent and consequences.

Safe places or countries

Which are the places or countries likely to remain safe during the next 20 or 50 years in term of economy and war?

Please comment on the general markets, gold, safe havens--if any

Any changes to your summer forecast for the Dow? I have missed your commentaries these past several weeks. Getting close to panic stage.

Hello Nadeem,

Thank you for your article, and I agree that history shows us that these situations lead to war.

However, I think your real strengths lie in reading the markets, and I hope to hear from you on that subject very soon.

All best wishes,

Diane :)

The enemy is the same again

Nadeem pointed out some important points- 1) Depressions can lead to war easily 2) The enemy can be someone surprising. I am convinced of the following events:-

The "enemy" of the Anglosphere is and has always been Germany. Not China not Soviets. Watch for re-emergence of nationalist Germany as EU collapses. This time they will need Russia. China simply isn't a contender for enemy as it has no military

projection capability. Germany with Russia will be the next enemy . It will be deceptive as both Germany and Russia send in 'peacekeeping" troops to Eastern and Med Europe and US descends into economic chaos. Will we have direct confrontation, not immediately due to nuke war fears. But a new world order will emerge interimly. Germany + France + Russia vs US+UK+Australia, China may enter central asia and Afghanistan , India maybe in upheavel along with China due to food inflation. 4 blocks of power will emerge-

1) Germany/France/Russia occupying rest of Europe

2) US/Japan/UK/Oz

3) China

4) Chaotic India

And then the 4 could collide in war in various permutations and combinations. But watch German re-emergence not China.

W ARE ALL SCREWED

When the Fed issued their statement Wednesday and essentially said "WE'RE ALL SCREWED" in so many words (ie. global significant downside risk), what should we make of that? I too went long some stocks in August but this has me jittery now.

As always, look forward to your articles on all topics,

Best,

Jerry

Hi Nadeem, I noticed you put a small update chart for the Dow in the last post, any chance you can do the same for the FTSE? Cheers

unrest

For me the safe places are : Brasil (- South America) and Ausralia. In case of war Europe ceases to exist so Europe will use all to avoid military conflicts. I would say that the biggest risk for Europe is civil unrest and social revolutions, rise of Islam and political transformations. This may inflame parts of Europe, especially France, Italy, Spain. USA and Canada are at risk of war with Asia, so UK and Germany look relatively safe too. Africa was always prone to bloody civil wars.

Australia?

Our globalist Leftist Government here in Australia has taken its own (so far small by comparison) steps to debase our currency, and promote division through effectively turning a blind eye to uncontrolled immigration (under the guise of refugees) of largely Muslim populations. Our Prime Minister has done her pilgrimages to Israel (like most Western politicians) and worships at the altar of the UN and IMF. She knows that she will be rewarded well for doing as she's told.
