From the May 2008 Idaho Observer:

Verification that "the plan" is coming together

As time passes, we find that predictions, prophesies, public admissions and candid quotes for the future are coming true, albeit in a manner more perverse than most of us imagined possible. Recent escalations in grain prices, food shortages and civil unrest are signs that the policies set forth by former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger in National Security Memorandum 200 (1970) are creating the perfect storm of global famine, disease, economic instability, social tension and racial violence. For reasons that decent people cannot fathom, nightmares for millions is the stuff that "our" leaders dreams are made of.

Sowing seeds of destruction in Iraq

"The reason we are in Iraq is to plant the seeds of democracy so they flourish there and spread to the entire region of

authoritarianism." ~George W. Bush

Among the many reasons for U.S. occupation of Iraq—stealing the oil, keeping defense contractors busy, militarily colonize the Arabian peninsula, nurturing growing animosity against the U.S.—is destroying the Iraqi people and their culture. Bush administration intent to foment the "insurgency" to justify ongoing occupation of Iraq to accomplish the objectives stated above was telegraphed in May, 2003. Prior to that time, Iraqis were generally optimistic that the U.S.-led coalition was going to carry out its stated intent: Replace the dictatorial regime of Saddam Hussein with a representative democracy. Soon after the major fighting stopped, U.S. military brass on the ground in Iraq began helping Iraqi politicians, public employees, police, military, teachers and community leaders reorganize to expedite the restoration of civil order, reconstruction and cleanup.

Then Paul Bremer arrived as head of the newly-created "Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA)." Bremer was taking orders from Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and his deputy Paul Wolfowitz—neither of whom had been to Iraq. Without physically seeing what was happening in Iraq and without consulting military commanders on the ground working with Iraqis to restore order, Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz ordered Bremer to enact a series of laws to govern Iraq which, at the time, had no constitution nor legally-constituted government.

Bremer’s first act in April, 2004, was to fire 500,000 state workers, most of them soldiers, but also doctors, nurses, teachers, publishers, and printers. Next, he opened the country’s borders to unrestricted imports: No tariffs, no duties, no inspections, no taxes. Bremer also decreed that anyone who had ever been a member of Saddam’s Baathist party were persona non grata and no Iraqi officials could enforce laws superseding those imposed by the U.S.-dominated CPA.

Two weeks after Bremer came to Baghdad in May 2003, he declared Iraq to be "open for business." The subsequent insurgency was a direct result of the orders handed down by Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz. The ongoing hostilities and growing resentment for the U.S. occupation of Iraq is the result of these policies remaining in place and murderously enforced by Blackwater mercenaries and U.S. military personnel.

"Bremer pushed through more drastic economic changes in one month than the International Monetary Fund managed over three decades in Latin America. Former World Bank chief economist and Nobel Prize laureate, Joseph Stiglitz, described Bremer’s reforms as ‘an even more radical form of shock therapy than pursued in the former Soviet world,’" noted Seeds of Destruction author F. William Engdahl (see ad page 14).

Engdahl continued, "CPA Order 37 lowered Iraq’s corporate tax rate from roughly 40 percent to a flat 15 percent. Without tax revenues, the state would be unable to play a role in anything.

"Order 39 allowed foreign companies to own 100 percent of Iraqi assets outside of the natural-resource sector. This ensured unrestricted foreign business activities in the country. Investors could also take 100 percent of the profits they made in Iraq out of the country. They would not be required to reinvest and they would not be taxed," Engdahl explained.

Bremer’s Order 81

The 100 Orders were the supreme law of the occupation. Buried deep among the Bremer laws was Order 81, "Patent, Industrial Design, Undisclosed Information, Integrated Circuits and Plant Variety Law."

At the heart of Order 81 was the Plant Variety Protection (PVP) provision. Order 81 states: "Farmers shall be prohibited from re-using seeds of protected varieties or any variety mentioned in items 1 and 2 of paragraph (C) of Article 14 of this Chapter."

"In plain English, this gives holders of patents on certain plant varieties, i.e. large foreign multinationals, absolute rights for 20 years over use of their seeds in Iraqi agriculture. The protected plant varieties are Genetically Modified or Gene Manipulated (GM) plants, and an Iraqi farmer who chose to plant such seeds must sign an agreement with the seed company holding the patent that he would pay a "technology fee" and an annual license fee for planting the patented seeds," Engdahl said.

Iraqi farmers seeking to take a portion of those patented seeds to replant in following harvest years would be subject to heavy fines from the seed supplier. Iraqi farmers would become vassals, not of Saddam Hussein, but of multinational GM seed giants.

Iraqi seed treasure destroyed

Iraqi farmers have existed since approximately 8,000 B.C. and now their naturally-selected seed stocks are being contaminated with GM varieties. The U.S.-led CPA has, in effect, turned the food future of Iraq over to the global, multinational corporations who reportedly drafted the specific details of Order 81.


CIA director predicts future Kissinger fomented in the 70s

On May Day, The Washington Post reported that CIA Director Michael Hayden stated in a speech at Kansas State University April 30, 2008, "Swelling populations and a global tide of immigration will present new security challenges for the United States by straining resources and stoking extremism and civil unrest in distant corners of the globe."

Hayden explained that, "Most of that growth will occur in countries least able to sustain it, a situation that will likely fuel instability and extremism, both in those countries and beyond."

World population is expected to grow from 6.7 billion to over 9 billion by 2050. Most of that growth, Hayden said, is from underdeveloped countries such as Niger and Liberia which could "triple" in the next 40 years. Under those circumstances, governments in those countries will not likely be able to feed, shelter and provide jobs for millions, resulting in populations that "could be easily attracted to violence, civil unrest, or extremism," he said.

Then Hayden brought the threat home. Developed nations, many of which already have large immigrant communities, will see particular growth in their Muslim populations while the number of non-Muslims will shrink as birthrates fall. "Social integration of immigrants will pose a significant challenge to many host nations again boosting the potential for unrest and extremism," Hayden said.

The population surge, the U.S. government’s top spy explained, could undermine the stability of already fragile third-world nations, particularly in Africa, while western governments will experience growth of immigrant communities and deepening divisions over ethnicity and race.

He went on to explain that European nations see the threat to global security differently and are not as committed to fighting the war on terror as the U.S.

What Hayden foreshadowed with this speech is exactly what the Nixon administration, under the direction of then Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, began setting up in 1970. The people of Africa have been poisoned with agricultural chemicals to grow GM crops and pesticides to kill bugs, sickened with epidemics of "AIDS" and other diseases, fed millions of tons of processed, packaged, non-nutritive USAID "food" and chemically-treated water while genetically contaminating heirloom seed stocks with GM crops.

According to plan (read Kissinger’s National Security Memorandum 200 [1970] and F. William Engdahl’s book "Seeds of Destruction"), third-word populations have increased on the availability of donated "food" but are sickly. Now, the free "food" is being withdrawn, indigenous peoples can no longer grow their own food because their seeds have been destroyed and GM crops require chemicals and machines to plant and harvest. Their governments are expected to crumble and people will move to where they can find work and food.

The food shortages that have been artificially created by global agribusiness as a matter of globalist policy and intent are in the news right now. The racial and ethnic divisions are already growing, both in Europe and in North America.

According to Hayden, the foregoing problems are likely to get a lot worse.
