Saudis now claim US behind 911 attacks
by Don Hank
The Saudi press, seething over the possibility that Congress will allow the families of 911 victims to sue Saudi Arabia, is now claiming the US is 100% behind the 911 attacks.
While am not buying the Saudi narrative that the attacks were made in the USA, it is clear that Bush covered for the Saudis, who, after all, did create Al-Qaeda (in a joint venture with the US).
The Saudis were definitely the main actors but American officials covered for them — whether or not they were in on the plot.
Add to this the fact that Russia and China are settling all oil trades in RMB and April was a record month for these trades, with China buying more oil – and in its own currency – than it did from the Saudis. That puts pressure on the Saudis to walk away from its now threadbare petrodollar agreement – the only thing holding up the USD. I would be surprised if this agreement survived beyond 2016.
The petrodollar would seem by any measure to be losing its fight for existence. And since it is the basis of our war machine, the Asians could in fact bring down Washington’s military ambitions with their oil trade. We could hardly blame them after imposing senseless sanctions on Russia for all this time. The sanctions could be considered the trigger for the demise of the dollar.
We may soon see a world in which the US would be powerless to effect regime change of the kind that destroyed Libya and Ukraine, made Kosovo a no-go zone for its own indigenous Christian population, nearly destroyed Syria and sent millions of refugees, terrorists and hoodlums to flood Europe.
Why would anyone miss these misguided and stupid policies?
Washington may soon be a spectator rather than the bad actor it has been so far.
RIP New World Order?
If all of this happens as it is expected to, then who will bail out the impoverished and starving West?
Answer: None other than Asia – China and Russia. There are no other realistic options on the horizon.
In this perspective, Donald Trump’s statements about getting along with Russia and cooperating with her make perfect sense.
