The push for war on the part of the British Empire stems from their recognition that their system of rule—the monetary system—is dead. The intention to launch war has been most blatant since the murder of Ghadaffi under the guise of humanitarian regime change. Subsequent to that hideous act the timeline for transitioning into full-fledged general warfare, via staged conflicts in Syria and Iran, has been contracting and the efforts to stop it have become all the more important.

The arch of present events is shaped by this monetary empire's desperate attempt to force nations like Russia and China into submission over their defense of sovereignty of nations. However, the resistance opposing this war drive, primarily expressed by Russia, as well as key ranking figures in the U.S., has thus far been relatively successful.

Yet, it must be kept in mind that the more successful this resistance is, the more desperate the lunatics behind the drive become; thermonuclear annihilation is a very plausible outcome. The only final solution to end the stranglehold that the Empire has held is to end the Empire once and for all by ridding the planet of it's failed monetary system and returning to the principles of an American Credit system and physical economic development.

"As is known, the Opposition has always wished to see external armed intervention.

In what appears to be a game for higher stakes, the European Union has announced via a tweet from its Commissioner for Enlargement and European Neighborhood Policy that it is suspending work on the Association Agreement with Ukraine. ``Work on hold,'' tweeted Stefan Fuele.

In a column released yesterday through Reader Supported News, former eight-term Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) pointed to what few have made note of: The much ballyhooed economic promises to the Ukrainian people for affiliating with the European Union through the proposed Association Agreement are nebulous and few, while the military "benefits'' for those wanting to further threaten Russia a
