HE’S SCREWED EVERYONE OF US
FLASH GORDON BROWN SAVIOUR OF THE FINACIAL UNIVERSE
“Flash! We only have 8 hours to save the banking world”
CRY HAVOC AND UNLEASH THE PIGS OF FINANCE …….but which Pigs are we taking about?
PIIGS and PIGS are acronyms used by international bond analysts, academics, and by the international economic press that refer to the economies of Portugal, Italy, Ireland, Greece, and Spain, especially in regards to matters relating to sovereign debt markets. When rendered as “PIGS”, the “I” originally refered to Italy, but has occasionally become an interchangeable reference to Ireland. Some news and economic organisations have limited or banned their use due to criticism regarding perceived offensive connotations.
PORTUGAL – Leftwing and VERY LIBERAL (Portugal has DECRIMINALISED ALL DRUGS),
IRELAND- Leftwing ,
GREECE – Socialist ,
SPAIN -a Socialist and liberal country
………ITALY (NO longer a PIG) used to be leftwing and is now right of centre ….could just be coincidence that all these countries that the bankers are after ,seem left of centre, most where right of centre when the banking crisis was forming.
SECULAR SOCIALISTS NOT what Western Capitalists like at all!!!
MEANWHILE THE PIGS IN THE TROUGH AKA THE BRIGHTEST AND THE BEST…..SAY LET ME IN LITTLE PIGGY
The “Brightest and the best” assure us that if Greece just follows thier orders ,all will be well. REMEMBER these people are the very people that got us into this mess!!!!
They assure the public that Greece’s politicians are willing to impose spending cuts and tax increases that will push the ratio of the deficit to the Gross Domestic Product from 12.7% in 2009 to 8.7% this year and 3% in 2012. This is the promise of Greece’s Prime Minister, George Papandreau. He is the leader of the Panhellenic Socialist Movement. He has been the President of the Socialist International since 2006. He was born in Minnesota. He has a masters degree in sociology. Trust him!
Here is a country that cannot balance its budget. It refuses to cut wages of its union-protected government employees. Its public sector workers rioted last week to protest the minimal austerity measures announced by the government. Yet, we are assured by a commissioner of the Economic and Monetary Affairs Commission, that “We expect that in due course the Greek government will take the necessary additional measures.” In due course. One of these days. Real Soon Now.
On Friday, February 12, news from Europe came that there would be a bailout of some kind. Now we are told that Greece must jump through some very tight fiscal hoops to get aid. Greece’s government must stop looking only to the interests of Greek voters. Bloomberg reported:
Austrian Finance Minister Josef Proell said the region had to “act in the interest” of the euro currency and it was up to Greece to cut its deficit before the EU offers help.
“Nobody can spare Greece the task of cleaning up its own house, Proell said in Brussels. “Only then will we decide whether financial signals have to be sent,” he said. Germany’s Wolfgang Schaeuble also said additional measures that Greece should take will be considered.
Wait a minute! It will take months for the Greek government to produce fiscal results. In the meantime, how will Greece’s government borrow more money to stay afloat? How much will it pay to borrow? How will the crisis be deferred while the Eurocrats are waiting to see the official figures – from a government that has misled the banks from the beginning?
“Greece’s government must stop looking only to the interests of Greek voters. Bloomberg reported: ”
GREECE TELL THESE CROOKS TO TAKE A LONG WALK OF A SHORT PIER WITH A HEAVY LOAD
The GREEK GOVERNMENT is there to represent the Greek People NOT BLOOMBERG THE FINANCIAL MARKETS THE EURO OR THE EU!!!!!
BUT POLITIONS ARE JUST AS CORRUPT AS BANKERS …THE GREEK PEOPLE understand this..
Greek Police, Protesters Clash in Nationwide Strike
Feb. 24 (Bloomberg) — Greek police fired tear-gas and clashed with demonstrators in central Athens after a march organized by unions to oppose Prime Minister George Papandreou’s drive to cut the European Union’s biggest budget deficit.
Please look at what Iceland is doing ,or Argentina for inspiration.
OR ECUADOR ,THEY DECLARED THE DEBT ILLEGAL!!
In November 2008, Ecuador became the first country to undertake an examination of the legitimacy and structure of its foreign debt. An independent debt audit commissioned by the government of Ecuador documented hundreds of allegations of irregularity, illegality, and illegitimacy in contracts of debt to predatory international lenders. The loans, according to the report, violated Ecuador’s domestic laws, US Securities and Exchange Commission regulations, and general principles of international law. Ecuador’s use of legitimacy as a legal argument for defaulting set a major precedent; indeed, the formation of a debt auditing commission sets a precedent.
ECUADOR IS ALSO SHOWING HOW TO DO REAL ENVIRONMENTALISM ,NOT CLIMATEGATE FAKE CARBON TAX ENVIRONMENALISM
In September 2008 Ecuador became the first country in the world to declare constitutional rights to nature, thus codifying a new system of environmental protection.
THESE FINANCIAL GENIUSES THAT DEMAND GREECE ETC DO THIER BIDDING ARE CROOKS AND THIER CURE WILL KILL YOU!!!
Remember that bailout $700 Billion….Well it was actually $23.7 TRILLION and it still has NOT WORKED!!
FED GAVE Banks Access to 23.7 TRILLION DOLLARS NOT $700 Billion!
THE MARKETS ARE BEING MANIPULATED
Trader on Bloomberg says markets are manipulated and volumes ‘ficticious’.Not only are the new high tech/high speed transactions giving big banks an overwhelming trading advantage over retail investors, they’re also creating a false impression about the health of the stock market.
THE BAILOUT DID NOT WORK , DEBT IS STILL RISING
The Senate voted on December 24 to allow the federal government to borrow an additional $290 billion, thereby increasing the total federal debt from $12.1 trillion to about $12.4 trillion.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Senate Thursday voted narrowly to increase the government’s borrowing authority to $14.3 trillion, which would allow the Treasury Department to continue servicing the country’s spiraling national debt through most of 2010.
US AND UK BUSINESSES ARE STILL DEVALUING!!!!!
Britain’s banks have been downgraded as credit risks by ratings agency Standard and Poors. This means they are no longer regarded as among the safest bets in the world.
General Electric lost its top credit rating from Moody’s Investors Service on Monday because of higher risks at the conglomerate’s struggling GE Capital lending unit.
IF ONLY THESE PIGS HAD FLOWN INTO ACTION INSTEAD, WE MIGHT NOT BE IN THE MESS WE ARE TODAY!!
The Flying Squad is a branch of the Specialist Crime Directorate, within London’s Metropolitan Police Service.The Squad’s purpose is to investigate commercial armed robberies, along with the prevention and investigation of other serious armed crime.
A LESSON FOR THE BRIGHTEST AND THE BEST. CAPITALISM EXPLAINED its not that difficul;t , so you see we do not need the brightest and the best.
1.Availability of credit allows money to flow between savers and borrowers.
2.Resources and funds are allocated to various projects or investments during a boom phase.
3.Eventually borrowing becomes excessive and leads to malinvestment,
4.At this stage, adherence to free market theory would allow for an efficient cleansing period and a healthy recovery period. How? Irresponsible and unprofitable businesses fail. Bad debts get liquidated. Excess resources go on sale, flow into more stable ventures and pool together with more profitable resources controlled by healthy corporations or entities
AT THE MOMMENT THE BRIGHTEST AND THE BEST GET MONEY FOR LESS THAN 1% INTEREST(BANK LENDING RATES) AND LEND IT FOR AT LEAST 5% INTEREST(PUBLIC BORROWING RATES). A MONKEY WITH LEARNING DIFFICULTIES COULD MAKE MONEY IN THIS SETUP!!!!!!!!!!
BUT EVEN WITH THIS SETUP ,THESE FINANCIAL MUPPETS HAVE LOST BILLIONS , BUT STILL DEMAND BONUES!!!!
RBS braced for bonus row with planned £1.3bn payout
• Taxpayer-owned bank to announce results on Thursday
• HSBC bosses push for pay rises of up to 30%
Loss-making Royal Bank of Scotland is braced for a row over City pay next week when it is expected to admit that its bonus pot for 22,000 investment bankers has reached £1.3bn – against last year’s £1bn.
The Edinburgh-based bank is awaiting approval from UK Financial Investments, the body that looks after the taxpayer’s 84% stake in the bank, for its proposed bonus pool.
These “brightest and best” free market capitalists expect the taxpayer to pay the 4 BILLION in LOSSES AND 1.3 BILLION in BONUSES!!
FYI RBS EMPLOYEES ARE GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES WHILE THE TAXPAYER HOLDS 84% OF THESE DEVALUED SHARES. IF YOU UNDERSTAND FREE MARKET CAPITALISM YOU WOULD REALISE THAT YOUR BANK SHOULD OF GONE BUST AND YOU SHOULD BE UNEMPLOYED. THUS NO WAGES NEVERMIND A BONUS!!!
AND AS RBS LOST NEARLY 4 BILLIONS POUNDS WHERE EXACTLY DO YOU EXPECT TO GET THE MONEY TO PAY THIS BONUS? SORRY THE MARKET HAS SPOKEN AND YOU ARE UNPROFITABLE AND IRRESPONSIBLE BY YOUR OWN STANDARDS, SO STOP BLUBBING!!!
ACTUALLY THE FRAUD SQUAD SHOULD OF BEEN CALLED IN AGES AGO, FRAUD ,CORRUPTION , MARKET MANIPULATION ETC .ETC.
THE BRIGHEST AND THE BEST OR A BUNCH OF GREEDY CRIMINAL FRAUDSTERS THAT ARE ALREADY BUST?
OF COURSE THE FED DOES NOT WANT AUDITED, ITS BUST ,ITS CORRUPT AND ITS FAILED IN ITS DUTY!!!!!!!
The board of directors of each Federal Reserve Bank District also have regulatory and supervisory responsibilities. For example, a member bank (private bank) is not permitted to give out too many loans to people who cannot pay them back. This is because too many defaults on loans will lead to a bank run.
The punishment for making false statements or reports which overvalue an asset is also stated in the U.S. Code:
Whoever knowingly makes any false statement or report, or willfully overvalues any land, property or security, for the purpose of influencing in any way…shall be fined not more than $1,000,000 or imprisoned not more than 30 years, or both.
These aspects of the Federal Reserve System are the parts intended to prevent or minimize speculative asset bubbles which ultimately lead to severe market corrections. The recent bubbles and corrections in energies, grains, equity and debt products and real estate cast doubt on the efficacy of these controls.
SO WHY ARE THE BANKERS NOT FACING $1,000,000 FINES AND 30 YEARS IMPRISONMENT?!?!
THE UK CREDIT CRUNCH
The reason why the banks are going bust in simple terms is:
Bradford and Bingley’s slow 12 month death march towards the same fate as Northern Rock finally looks set to have come to an end with expectations on Sunday that the beleaguered bank will be nationalised with a view to a break of the bank and liquidation of assets so as to cover in part the estimated £20 billion bailout cost that is required to fill the gap between assets and liabilities. The toxic mortgages will probably end up with the government owned Northern Rock bank which will increasingly be seen as the UK Governments Toxic Mortgage Dump where the tulip backed securities of further bank busts and partial bailouts will end up.
The banks traded in complex derivatives products between themselves, in what is termed as the over the counter market. The exposure to the Securitized debt packages was further exaggerated by the use of leverage of in many cases more than 30X the banks assets against valuations based on complex models that inflated the packages values during the boom times which allowed huge profits and bonuses to be banked (Fraud?). However the critical point is in the final link in a long chain of sliced and diced debt packages was the US housing market.
Now many banks are left with assets that are worth LESS than 50% of their “mark to market” booked value. Now that does not mean a 50% loss for the banks on investments, remember the greedy banks deployed LEVERAGE of as much as 30 times of assets, so capital of say £100 million is controlling risk of as much as £3,000 million. Therefore a 50% loss results in a loss of value of £1,500 million, that’s 15 TIMES the capital. Hence the banks have been reluctant to price their debt packages at the real market price as that would mean that the bank is effectively bankrupt with losses far greater than the banks capital base. So the market remains frozen until all of the illiquid mortgage backed debt has been transferred over to the tax payers in exchange for liquid cash, hence prompting the US Mother of All bailouts plan.
THIS IS JUST THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG. THIS IS LIQUID LENDING MONEY, WE STILL HAVE THE ASSET MARKET
Trouble in Hedgefundistan: “Its gonna get a lot worse”

Citigroup Warns Customers It May Refuse To Allow Withdrawals
“Effective April 1, 2010, we reserve the right to require (7) days advance notice before permitting a withdrawal from all checking accounts. While we do not currently exercise this right and have not exercised it in the past, we are required by law to notify you of this change,” Citigroup said on statements received by customers all over the country.
OF COURSE CITIGROUP SAYS ITS NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT
As we reported back in 2008, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., which guarantees individual accounts up to $100,000, only has about $50 billion to “insure” about $1 trillion in assets across the nation’s financial institutions.
This revelation prompted fears that an accelerating amount of bank closures could absorb FDIC funds and leave holders of money market and traditional savings accounts exposed.
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. said Tuesday that its deposit-insurance fund fell to $20.9 billion at the end of 2009, a $12.6 billion drop in the final three months of the year, as bank failures continued at a pace not seen since the savings and loan crisis. The fund’s reserve ratio was -0.39% at the end of the quarter, the lowest on record for the combined bank and thrift fund.
BUT WE HAVE GOT OURSELVES OUT OF THIS MESS BEFORE….HOW?
HERE IS HOW ANDREW JACKSON FREED AMERICA FROM DEBT
Andrew Jackson was the last of three sons of Scotch-Irish immigrants.
Andrew Jackson was the only President to pay off the national debt. He was the first President to be born in a log cabin, and the first to ride a train.
THE BANKS ATITUDE TO ANDREW JACKSON
“The Bank is trying to kill me, but I shall kill it!”
ANDREW JACKSONS VIEW OF THE BANKS….NO BAILOUT.
“You are a nest of vipers and thieves, and by the grace of the almighty God, I will root you out!”
ANDREW JACKSON’S VIEW ON CORPORATIONS
Corporations have neither bodies to kick nor souls to damn.
ANDREW JACKSONS VIEW ON THE BRIGHTEST AND THE BEST
Hemans gallows ought to be the fate of all such ambitious men who would involve their country in civil wars, and all the evils in its train that they might reign & ride on its whirlwinds & direct the Storm– The free people of these United States have spoken, and consigned these wicked demagogues to their proper doom.
WE HAVE BEEN HERE BEFORE , PLEASE TAKE ANDREW JACKSONS ADVICE!
“Never take counsel of your fears.”
The Jacksonians opposed government granted monopolies to banks, especially the national bank, which was a central bank known as the Second Bank of the United States. Jackson fought to end the government monopoly to the Bank and got great opposition from Nicholas Biddle, the bank chairman. Biddle first dismissed Jackson efforts, but as the initiative gained popular support, he got more concerned. There was an attempt to murder Jackson at that time but the pistols failed. Jackson would later claim that he had proof the bankers were behind this attempt. Jackson was able to gain popular support because the Bank money manipulations and inflation had created a big recession, and it had inflated land prices, benefiting big land owners and stopping economical development. In a last attempt to stop Jackson, Biddle burst the bubble his inflationary policies had created, and brought about a deflationary correction. This put pressure on Jackson, but after a year of recession, the economy was clean by the deflationary correction, and the Bank was out of “ammunition”. Jackson had won the battle. The Bank continued his operations as a state bank, but had to close years after. Once retired, everytime Jackson was asked what was his biggest achievement as president he answered: “I killed the Bank”.
Andrew Jackson was the only President to pay off the national debt.
SO WHY ARE WE NOT ROOTING OUT THIS NEST OF VIPERS?!?!
Make the banks pay back ALL taxpayer money ,with the interest. Those that fall ,we asset strip and put thier assets on sale. We start criminal enquires into the causes of the bank failures and bailouts. Any banker OR polition found guilty should be stripped of all thier assets unless they can prove they bought them with money NOT related to bank fraud or corruption!!
CLOSE THE CRIMINAL AND FRAUDULANT BANK OF ENGLAND AND FEDERAL RESERVE AND END FRACTIONAL RESERVED BANKING PRACTICES
INSTALL A DIRECT DEMOCRACY BASED ON LIBERTARIAN SOCIALIST IDEALS
OF COURSE WORLD WAR III MIGHT TAKE OUR MINDS OFF THE FINANCIAL CRISIS AND POLITICAL CORRUPTION
NEOCONS THE ANTI-HIPPIES…….. ALL THEY ARE SAYING IS GIVE WAR A CHANCE!
If we are to learn anything from history,it should be that when economic crisis hits, for politions war is a good distraction and an economic manufacturing generator.
As Andrew Jackson realised that War was a massive cash generator for bankers,that was why he kicked out this nest of vipers. We must realise that World Wars and wars around the world are big business for banks and those with stock portfolios, like politions.
The Panic of 1907, also known as the 1907 Bankers’ Panic, was a financial crisis that occurred in the United States when the New York Stock Exchange fell close to 50% from its peak the previous year. Panic occurred, as this was during a time of economic recession, and there were numerous runs on banks and trust companies. The 1907 panic eventually spread throughout the nation when many state and local banks and businesses entered into bankruptcy. Primary causes of the run include a retraction of market liquidity by a number of New York City banks and a loss of confidence among depositors, exacerbated by unregulated side bets at bucket shops.
The Panic of 1910-1911 was a slight economic depression that followed the enforcement of the Sherman Anti-Trust Act. It mostly affected the stock market and business traders who were smarting from the activities of trust busters, especially with the breakup of the Standard Oil Company.

The Wall Street Crash of 1929,also known as the Great Crash, and the Stock Market Crash of 1929, was the most devastating stock market crash in the history of the United States, taking into consideration the full extent and duration of its fallout

The USA goes bankrupt in 1933 and just survives a corporate Wall Street backed Nazi fascist coup.
WORLD WAR II (1939–1945),
This lead to the rise of America as a manufacturing Super power ,briefly before stock market bubbles bring it down again….
The financial crisis of 2007–present is a global financial crisis triggered by a liquidity shortfall in the United States banking system. It has resulted in the collapse of large financial institutions, the “bail out” of banks by national governments and downturns in stockmarkets around the world. It is considered by many economists to be the the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression of the 1930s.
The government bailout of banks triggers National bankruptcies.
WORLD WAR III?
WAR WITH IRAN ANYONE?
We currently seem to be in the middle of OPERATION AJAX II
The 1953 Iranian coup d’état deposed the democratically elected government of Iranian Prime Minister Mohammed Mosaddeq. In a plan called Operation Ajax (less commonly TPAJAX), the United States’ Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) organized and executed the overthrow of the nationalist government of Prime Minister Mosaddeq, at the request of, and with support from the British government. This enabled Mohammad Reza Pahlavi to become an authoritarian monarch, who went on to rule Iran for 26 years until he was overthrown in 1979
SO THE CIA AND THE UK DEFENDED OIL INTERESTS. OVERTHREW A DEMOCRATIC SECULAR SOCIALIST GOVERNMENT AND REPLACED THIS WITH A RIGHT WING AUTHORITARIAN REGIME!!!!
THIS ULTIMATELY LEAD TO THE RISE OF THE ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF IRAN!!!
BUT THE US GOVERNMENT HAS NO PROBLEMS DEALING WITH RELIGIOUS NUTTERS OR RIGHTWING NUTTERS!!! ISRAEL OR IRAN OR CONTRAS
ITS THE SECULAR LEFTWING THE US HAS PROBLEMS WITH
IRAQ was sanctioned for False reasons as well before the Gulf War II. During the sanctions Iraq was selling its Oil to the UN in Euro’s in the Oil for Food program.If the reasons for sanctions could be internationally proven false ,then oil is on the market being sold in Euros instead of dollars. Coincidently today both Iran and Venezuala sell oil for non-dollar prices.
The Oil-for-Food Programme, established by the United Nations in 1995 (under UN Security Council Resolution 986) and terminated in late 2003, was established with the stated intent to allow Iraq to sell oil on the world market in exchange for food, medicine, and other humanitarian needs for ordinary Iraqi citizens without allowing Iraq to rebuild its military.
Iraq sold its Oil in EURO’s
The Ba’athist party was a “socialist party”
The Arab Socialist Ba’ath Party (also spelled Ba’th or Baath which means “resurrection or renaissance”; Arabic: حزب البعث العربي الاشتراكي) is a political party in the Arab World advocating the related concepts of Arab nationalism, Pan-Arabism, and Arab socialism.
YUGOSLAVIA was a Secular Socialist country as well before the war. YUGOSLAVIA was found innocent ,NATO committed an ACT of War and a War crimes that included organ harvesting!!
Slobodan Milošević (sometimes transliterated as Miloshevich; Serbian pronunciation: [sloˈbodan miˈloʃevitɕ] ( listen); Serbian Cyrillic: Слободан Милошевић; 20 August 1941 – 11 March 2006) was President of Serbia and of Yugoslavia. He served as the President of Socialist Republic of Serbia and Federal Serbia from 1989 until 1997 in three terms and as President of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia from 1997 to 2000. He also led the Socialist Party of Serbia from its foundation in 1990.
In February 2007, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) cleared Serbia of genocide, but ICJ’s president stated that Milošević was aware of the risk of massacres occurring and did not act to prevent them
WHAT ABOUT A SMALL PRE-WAR IN AFRICA ,LIKE SOMALIA OR NIGERIA.
AFRICOM has been situated in Stuttgard since 2007 ,……something must be holding things up..
The U.S. military command in Africa, AFRICOM, has assumed responsibility for much of the day-to-day duties once performed by the State Department and other civilian agencies. More often than not, the uniformed military is the dispenser of a wide range of U.S. foreign aid in Africa, as part of a general militarization of U.S. relations with the rest of the planet.
AFRICOM Created in February of 2007, launched in October of 2008 and headquartered in Stuttgart, Germany because it couldn’t find a home base in Africa to protect U.S. interest abroad, this entity has been “charged with supporting U.S. military partners in Africa.”
Still NO African country want this “AFRICON” based within their borders. For very good reasons when we see what been going on at the Hiati US Embassy . HQ for coups , covert operations, false flags and training death squads that cover the whole Central and South American area. Expect more false flag operations in Africa to give an excuse and create the climate for a AFRICOM base in Africa,…preferably in a place with lots of oil and natural resourses. Maybe Somalia or Nigeria.
In recent times, wars in the Middle East such as the Gulf War and the invasion of Iraq have been described as wars for oil. In many cases, critics have accused the U.S. of engaging in realpolitik in the cynical sense of political action without regard for principle or morals. A war planned for economic gain can be seen as a conspiracy in the conventional sense of a secret plot — particularly when the public is presented with false pretexts for war. It has been suggested that war is a perfect way of distracting citizens, as an electoral tactic, from difficulties facing the current administration. This premise is the basis of the film Wag the Dog, and the George Orwell novel 1984. Some have claimed that this was the motivation behind the Falklands War. At that time the National Reorganization Process, the right-wing dictatorship that ruled Argentina between 1976 and 1983, was facing increasing discontent among the population and this may have contributed to the decision to invade the Falkland Islands.

MEANWHILE IN THE UK…SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES
Economic muppet and saviour of the banking universe Flash Gordon Brown,is dreaming of Maggie Thatcher again. Hey the Falklands worked well for Maggie , why not try it again?
This seems to have been the idea with Bush Jr. and GULF WAR II- THIS TIME ITS PRESONAL… I’m lookin for the guy that shot my pa -Sheriff G.W. Bush
The Falklands Conflict- WAR ,WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR………. Well if you are a polition , its good for getting public support , distracting the public from your corruption and incompitence , it will increase thier stock portfolio and it will produce many juicey non-bid contracts to be awarded to the lobby group with the fattest envelope , ….and lots of cool photo oportunities ,when you can pretend to be brave while never actually putting yourself in physical risk.
This does worry me ,as Flash Gordon Brown , saviour of the financial universe, …and economic muppet. He does like his Maggie Thatcher, and we all know (those of us old enough to remember) that in 1980 she was the most unpopular PM in history,UNTIL….the Falklands “Conflict”, but I think we can call it a war today, and then on a wave of Rule Britiania Maggie’s monetorists are put in power in a landslide.
The Falklands War (Spanish: Guerra de las Malvinas/Guerra del Atlántico Sur), also called the Falklands Conflict/Crisis, was fought in 1982 between Argentina and the United Kingdom (UK) over the disputed Falkland Islands and South Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsArgentina to renew case for Falklands autonomy
The conflict was the result of a protracted diplomatic confrontation regarding the sovereignty of the islands. Neither state officially declared war and the fighting was largely limited to the territories under dispute and the South Atlantic. The initial invasion was characterised by Argentina as the re-occupation of its own territory, and by the UK as an invasion of a British dependent territory.
Coincidently BOTH countries where being run by very unpopular right wing regimes with serious economic troubles. War in this case was a good distraction from the economic woes and got the populations behind the unpopular governments. Maggie Thatcher was swept to power on the wave of Falklands victory,previously she was the most unpopular PM on record.
FALKLANDS CONFLICT II
Argentina is to make its case for sovereignty over the Falkland Islands to other Latin American countries, as tensions over potential oil reserves in the South Atlantic grow.
The country’s foreign minister, Jorge Taiana, will ask other countries in a meeting of the Rio Group in Mexico to back his government’s claim to control the waters to “Las Islas Malvinas”.The row over the disputed islands has reignited after the discovery of £60bn-worth of gas and oil reserves off the Falklands.
In London, Gordon Brown insisted international law allows British firms to operate freely in the area. Argentina has said their operations violate its sovereignty and announced this week that boats sailing from its ports to the islands would need a permit.
“It is perfectly within our rights to be able to do this. I think the Argentinians actually understand that,” said Mr Brown. “Sensible discussions will prevail on this.”
Argentina has threatened to stop an oil rig, the Ocean Guardian, which is due to start work in the waters of the Falklands Economic Zone. The UK has warned it will be on international waters and any Argentinian interference would be in breach of international law.
There is already a war crimes warrent with Gordon Browns name on it,
He looks like hes going to loose the next election,and with the economy in the state it is, a war is a good distraction from government corruption and incompitance and good for public moral, OH and they have discovered OIL …so what has he got too loose….the Oil Lobby will definately be pushing this one.
MEANWHILE SOMEWHERE IN A FORMER SOVIET REPUBLIC
The specific conflict between Georgia and South Ossetia and Abkhazia has its roots in the following. First, the Southern Ossetes , who until 1990 formed an autonomous region of the Georgian Soviet republic, seek to unite in one state with their co-ethnics in North Ossetia , an autonomous republic of the Russian Soviet republic and now the Russian Federation . There is an historically grounded Ossete fear of violent Georgian nationalism and the experience of Georgian hatred of ethnic minorities under then Georgian leader Zviad Gamsakhurdia, which the Ossetes see again under Georgian President, Mikhel Saakashvili. Saakashvili was brought to power with US financing and US covert regime change activities in December 2003 in what was called the Rose Revolution. Now the thorns of that rose are causing blood to spill.
The notorious tie eating President is cooking up something nasty……..
Destabilization in the North Caucasus: Georgian President Saakashvili “Ready for New War”?
Georgia’s President Mikhail Saakashvili and his supporters are ready to start a new war and plunge the country into chaos again. A statement to that effect came from the leader of the opposition “Democratic Movement – United Georgia” Party, ex-Speaker of parliament Nino Burdjanadze.
The party’s statements circulated on Saturday say the Georgian parliament is acting behind Russia’s back preparing an address to the people and legislatures of North Caucasian republics which may destabilize the situation in the North Caucasus given the current circumstances.
The opposition statements say Saakashvili is pushing the country into war because he is fully aware that his days as president are over but he prefers to be expelled by Russia rather than toppled by the people of Georgia
