Just a quick analysis on how the Reset is progressing—chatter in recent months concerning a huge war, USA versus Russia on the Eurasian Continent. I’ve alluded to such chatter on this site and on the Reset slack channel so I guess the possibility should be analyzed given the military build up in Jordan is being leaked to the mass media:
Russia is a softer target than China. And Western Russia is a softer target than Eastern Russia.
An assault against Eastern Russia would be very difficult indeed. Dozens of divisions would require transport to South Korea and then punch past North Korea. If that assault were successful they’d then be met by at least one million Chinese troops.
The Korean peninsula is very narrow and troop concentrations would be easy targets for heavy artillery.
So we can safely discount the possibility of a Eurasian Continental war starting in East Asia.
A war via the Western European vector is more viable; but we should be mindful of the fact that it took Hitler, and his financiers, ten years to build up the German war apparatus. And that was during a period of Russian weakness.
Most of Western Europe has no large-scale offensive capabilities; please recall that the U.K. and France required US assistance attacking Libya.
So we can dismiss that attack vector as not viable within the Reset timeline.
That leaves the Middle East and Russia’s soft underbelly between the Black and Caspian seas. The Pentagon is presently financing an attack vector via Jordan into Syria so such a war is possible.
This regional war would pit Turkey – Russia – Syria – Iran – Hezbollah against Saudi Arabia – Israel – Jordan – USA – NATO.
Such a war would be a war of attrition. China would be tempted to sit this round of hostilities out–allowing both sides to weaken one another.
In this theatre the US navy and Israeli air force would not play a significant role due to advances in Russian missile technology. Even the most advanced stealth bombers, capable of evading Russia’s advanced radar systems, would need to travel considerable distances to deliver payloads.
And once again, how would the Pentagon get the troops to the war zone?
Hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of troops would be required just to stabilize that front, as Russia, Iran, Turkey and Lebanon would mobilize their populations.
Overseas air and naval transports would be very vulnerable to advanced anti-ship and anti-air missiles. That leaves us with the overland option of Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Israel as physically possible.
Logistically, such routes would be nightmarish as petroleum infrastructure in the Gulf would be bombed into non-existence.
Financially, though, such a war would be nigh on impossible to wage.
Under the stewardship of Powell, the final Dollar devaluation is underway; stocks have begun their crash pattern and may perform as political pretext for the Reset. And when the default happens Powell will do an unsecured print to finance the government’s war fighting ability.
Be mindful that a government’s first concern is its own survival; so war fighting is its dominant idea—First against its own citizens, and then, against foreign adversaries.
An unsecured print will cause instant global hyperinflation of commodities and panic in all urban areas of deficit nations—including the USA.
It is financially implausible that the US military retains the ability to wage war while experiencing hyperinflation and Dollar rejection. Compounding the US government’s dilemma will be the usual list of rioting, hunger, mass mania, unemployment, energy shortages and perhaps, insurrection.
Going forward, we may see a Bitcoin style crash pattern emerge in financial assets over the next few months: Equities first; then bonds, property, bank runs. The Yen dies its final death as Powell’s unsecured print severely devalues the $. Offshore Dollar dumps into alternative currencies and commodities would compound the monetary crisis.
Non-stacking and deficit nations would experience existential issues.
So war chatter of recent months, and hawkish appointments in the US administration, appear as feints and ruses to keep the creditors off-balance. And may serve as misdirection while Powell pulls the plug, keeping key players guessing, and the pro-war faction appeased.
