Why do we fight wars?

Once upon a time wars were fought for profit; when Rome established its empire or Spain conquered Peru, it was all about the land, the gold and silver, the slaves.
And that kind of thing still happens.
Or at least that is the official reason to wage a war, even though more than gold the goal is natural resources, oil, gas, land.
However, war — even easy, victorious war — doesn’t pay.
And this has been true for a long time.
War would necessarily inflict severe economic harm even on the victor.
Furthermore, it’s very hard to extract golden eggs from sophisticated economies without killing the goose in the process.

Besides, modern war is very, very expensive.
For example, by any estimate the eventual costs (including things like veterans’ care) of the Iraq war will end up being well over $1 trillion, that is, many times Iraq’s entire G.D.P.
So, if modern nations can’t enrich themselves by waging war and wars keep happening, one asks: why?
One answer could be that leaders do not understand the arithmetic.
My answer is that they do understand arithmetic, but do not follow the will of their people.
They do not wage wars in the interest of the people, or the nation.
As everything they do, is NOT what the citizens want, but WHAT the people who put them there want.
A country like US, where the economy is based on the production of weapons, HAS to wage wars, in order to produce more and more.
And it doesn´t matter how much they cost, or which profit they produce.
The profit is in the production and sale of weapons.
Governments too often gain politically from war, even if the war in question makes no sense in terms of national interests.

Elisa´s secret

I have a friend who is always successful in everything she does.
Her secret?
"Do it well, and in order to do so, plan it carefully, see what the others do (essential) think what YOU should do and just do it..."
If you want to open your business online, or to improve the one you already have first thing you should concentrate on is to increase the number of customers, looking for the right ones, the ones that are looking for what you offer.
What is the best way to find them?
There are many ways, but the easiest and most successful is to have the right database, something easy to use and with the biggest number of customers, of course.
ListGiant has what the name says, a giant list of names, carefully divided for CONSUMER LISTS, BUSINESS LISTS, AUTOMOTIVE LISTS and of course LISTS BY INDUSTRY, so that you can, in a blink of an eye find all what you are looking for.
You can ( and this is very important) choose YOUR MARKETING METHOD, being it mailing list, telemarketing list, email list or sales leads...
Their specialists have the knowledge and experience to teach you how to create a custom marketing solution that fits the needs of your business.
You can boost your sales increasing the awareness of your brand, since they can help you guiding you toward the products that will meet your marketing goals.
You can contact them asking to help you to achieve effective, productive, and profitable direct marketing results.
Elisa (my friend) is a medium size business and needs them even more than the big 500 fortune companies (that use them anyway).
And if you have any doubt about the size of their database, just think that they began 15 years ago as a small list brokerage firm in Southern California, with just a few data experts, but the right amount of ambition, and they really succeeded in making their mark in the direct marketing world.
They surely can help you to make yours, as they already helped Elisa and many others like her...

The truth behind UKRAINE

There are a lot of global protests being fund by the banker government industrial complex, with a certain agenda that has been passed on as a fight for democracy and freedom for people, masquerading something else, and for understanding it we must take a close look of what is happening in Ukraine right now, because a lot of people are completely missing the point of what is going on there.
I want to start discussing a quote of Professor Carol Quigley of Georgetown.
He was also the mentor of Bill Clinton.
He said this in 1966 : The powers of financial capitalism have a far reaching aim, nothing less than creating a world system a financial control under PRIVATE hands, able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole.
This system would be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert by secret agreements reached in secret meetings.
The APEX of the system would be the Bank of International Settlements in Basel (CH) a private bank owned and controlled by the central banks themselves private corporations. He wrote this in 1966 and also said that the key endeavor was to control and manipulate the currency of every single country, and people like Warren Buffet were hired to misinform the people to believe that the government in these nations were controlling the currency supply.
If you read this statement and look at what has happened in the past, the interventions of the EU and the West in other countries, Sudan, Somalia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, ( even though it was rebuffed by pres. Putin, the US is still engaged in it).
What do all these countries have in common?
None of them is a member of the Bank of International Settlements, it is not a coincidence, there are no coincidences when it comes to war, to finance, you have to be able to connect the dots, the BIS is NOT controlling the monetary supply of these countries.
Why would they want to bring them under the umbrella of the BIS?
Japan is the perfect example why.
Japan in 1988 was the largest creditor of the world, the BIS didn’t like it, they wanted to stop the growth in Japan and Asia.
They knew that the banks in Japan were under capitalized, so they raised the capital requirement for banks from 6% to 8%, they knew this would bring all money back into the banks and begin the recession.
Japan has been in recession for more than 20 years. The BIS was the trigger of this.
If you want to understand what is going on in Ukraine right now, look what Victoria Nuland said, "we have invested more than 5 Billions dollars to allow Ukraine to achieve this and other goals, that means bringing them into the EU and under the umbrella of the Global International Banking System.
Who are the WE?
All the money comes from the bankers.
The BANKS are involved in this.
John Kerry talks of 1 billion dollars for Ukraine leaving Russia.
That comes from the IMF.
When things become very ugly, war is part of the equation.
We are in the precipice of war with Russia.

The Internet should be really "Global"

The recent NSA revelations question the US role in the Internet.
The European Union's executive is calling for a more international and less dominated by America Internet.
The first step should be a shift away from the California-based Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (Icann), which is subject to US law, is contracted by the US administration and is empowered to supervise how digital traffic operates.
"Given the US-centric model of internet governance currently in place, it is necessary to broker a smooth transition to a more global model while at the same time protecting the underlying values of open multi-stakeholder governance …"
"Large-scale surveillance and intelligence activities have led to a loss of confidence in the internet and its present governance arrangements."
The European institution calls also against increasing governmental attempts to control the internet, as in China, Russia, Iran and increasingly Turkey, which passed a stringent law last week curbing online freedoms.
There fundamental freedoms and human rights are on stake.
Also every decision over domain names and IP addresses shouldn't be monopolized.
"The next two years will be critical in redrawing the global map of internet governance,"
"Governments are trying to bring the internet under national control. States like Russia and China use the argument of increasing cyber-security to increase control over their own population. Organisations such as Icann, which registers domain names worldwide, currently function under US law. That has to change."

How money "flows"from bottom to top

It took me sometime, but finally I have a clear picture.
It is always the same pattern, the same tricks.
I am talking about the major crisis of 1929 1990 2000 2008 and the very next one I still do not know when.
First the FED increases the monetary mass let'say 60% or more, lowers interest rates to almost nothing.
This money goes to the market (easy credit), creates prosperity and surplus that people invest in a brand new bubble created by Wall Street.
In 1920 was the stock market bubble, 1990 2000 Enron and internet bubble, 200 2008 mortgage and derivatives (CDO CDS) bubble.
Next step is suddenly withdrawing all the money from the market.
No credit means the one who borrowed has to sell.
If everybody sells the market crashes.
They say: today these billions were burned in the market.
Nothing is burned, it is simply transferred from the mass to the elite.
That is why they get richer and richer and we get poorer and poorer.
The final transfer, has yet to come, but it is close....
