Celente: They Will Invent An Enemy To Start A War

"It [war] is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small 'inside' group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes."

There is much more going on when wars are waged than just bringing freedom and democracy to the countries which we invade, and it comes at the expense of the lives of our fathers, mothers, daughters, and sons.

Self interest, with no regard for the lives of others, drives those like the bankers funding the wars, the corporate interests profiting from the natural resources that are conquered, and the politicians who use war as a way to scare the population into keeping themselves in power.

It's not just Gerald Celente who believes that governments have no scruples when it comes to war and empire building, but economic adviser Marc Faber, as well. Both of these men have accurately forecast trends over the last three decades, and both warn of impending wars as politicians at home attempt to deflect blame for the economic distress being caused by their policies. This financial bust, according to Faber, will not end well:

"I think eventually there will be a big bust and then the whole credit expansion will come to an end.

Before that happens, governments will continue printing money which in time will lead to a very high inflation rate, and the economy will not respond to stimulus. The average family will be hurt by that, and then in order to distract the attention of the people, the governments will go to war.

People ask me against whom? Well, they will invent an enemy."

When Americans are protesting en masse in the streets because of lost jobs, lowered wages,foreclosed homes, higher taxes, broke pension funds, a worthless dollar and restrictions on their freedom, they will be blaming the politicians who got us into this mess. Mass protests of this nature can lead to riots, which can very quickly lead to violence in the streets.

Out of fear and self preservation, politicians will respond the only way they know how: blame someone else. In this case, it will be not be finger pointing at each other, but rather, they will collectively point their fingers at other nations, and those nations' leaders will subsequently point their finger at us.

There are many scenarios that can play out in the future, including hyperinflationary meltdown of our currency, a slide into a severe deflationary depression, or a peak oil driven economic collapse, but the long-term trend, the end result of any of these dire scenarios, is one that has been proven time and again throughout history: war.
