Bridgenorth castle was build by a very unsavoury character who took pleasure in coughing children’s eyes out with his fingers and killing people by starvation and torture and other general unpleasantness but I digress.
What, you ask, does Bridgeworth castle as suggested in the title of this post have to do with the collapse of the three WTC buildings on 911?
Let’s start with the size of the building. In order to get a sense of the size of the building (about 70 feet) I would like to draw your attention to the reverse triangle at the top of the wall. It is a rather thin line but that is the double roof which once topped the tower.
The tower was not the keep but a guard house and if you look at the right side of the building you see a narrow line from top to bottom which once held the iron portcullis. The row of holes in the wall from left to right held the beams from the floor and the total floors were approximately three. For more information here is the link to the time team doco on the building. Continue reading →
For those of you interested to see and learn what happens when societies collapse (if only to be able to prepare) two places stand out for study. One of them of course is Greece and another is the once proud city of Detroit in the land of the free and the brave oppressed and the slaves, the good old US of A now better known as the Evil Empire.
The thing with these two examples of horrible economic collapse is that perhaps we are not the only ones studying what happens when jobs disappear and money becomes scares and the people is squeezed for ever more tax, fines and permit fees while they become more and more restricted in their movements through poverty, rising oil prices and no fly lists.
There are a couple of noteworthy differences between the two examples:
In Greece, a country who’s population suffered immensely but fought back bravely under the Nazi occupation and who also suffered greatly under the Military Junta there is much more solidarity and they have a tendency to demonstrate in huge numbers and direct their anger to the Elite, Government and the Finance institutions destroying the country.
In Detroit hundreds of thousands of people have simply moved away in search of jobs and the left over inhabitants find themselves more and more in a Mad Max situation in which ladies in their late seventies have to apply for gun permits and buy guns to protect themselves from the armed gangs roaming the streets.
In Greece young unemployed people will use violence against the police but it seems that there is no increased crime but more and more people become homeless and commit suicide each day.
Another noteworthy difference is the behaviour of the police. In Detroit and in the entire US the violence of police officers towards private citizens is increasing in multiple mind blowing ways( see here, here and here for just a few horrible examples).
In Greece the Police union representing two thirds of the entire police force has issued a statement in defence of their country and it’s citizenry and it is a searing indictment of the international financial elite wreaking havoc in their communities.
What is also interesting that while the Greek clearly pointed to their elite as the source of the problems with a good understanding of the political situation with regards to their position in society,
The citizens of Detroit and that goes for most of the US it citizens, until the advent of the occupy movement, are on the whole behaving as millionaires who are temporarily out of cash identifying completely with the 1% devastating their country and most of the world.
The same 1% whom we must presume are watching both situations with interest and if I was them with more than just a smidgen of trepidation because their entire future lies on what happens in these places next.
Will the Greek take back their country and return to the Drachma and begin to rebuild their economy causing the entire bloated over leveraged financial bubble machine to collapse or will the military industrial complex take over when the financial war can no longer be perpetrated?
Will the American people armed to the teeth and divided along racial and income lines turn on each other more and more descending into a civil war leaving the 1% to continue their goal of bankrupting the global population or will they finally wake up to the fact that they never have been and never will be millionaires like the 1% and take back their country thereby triggering the FEMA concentration camp activation and the use of military on the streets of cities like Detroit in order to shut down what was once a thriving free community?
I’m sure the Gaddafi loyalists are not necessarily loyalists to the former despot but more likely to be of the same tribe as the Gaddafi family meaning tribes are now warring with each other as in civil war.
Fighters loyal to Muammar Gaddafi have seized control of the town of Bani Walid, a pro-Libyan government militia member has said.
“They control the town now. They are roaming the town,” the militia member, in Bani Walid, told Reuters news agency.
Fierce clashes in the town, located about 90 miles (140km) southeast of Tripoli and a former regime stronghold, broke out this morning.
A Bani Walid resident claimed the violence started when Gaddafi loyalists angry over the arrest of one of their men attacked revolutionary fighters in the town.
The fighting is said to have originally centred around the revolutionary brigade’s base, but then spread to other parts of the town.
Mahmoud al Warfali, a spokesman for the revolutionary brigade in Bani Walid, said up to 150 pro-Gaddafi fighters had battled revolutionary forces in the streets with rocket-propelled grenades and AK-47s.
Will this justify the use of the FEMA camps and possibly an all out civil war in the US?
Ominous music plays as images appear on the screen: Muslim terrorists shoot Christians in the head, car bombs explode, executed children lie covered by sheets and a doctored photograph shows an Islamic flag flying over the White House.
“This is the true agenda of much of Islam in America,” a narrator intones. “A strategy to infiltrate and dominate America. … This is the war you don’t know about.”
This is the feature-length film titled “The Third Jihad,” paid for by a nonprofit group, which was shown to more than a thousand officers as part of training in the New York Police Department.
Warnings from many experts are coming true: Libya is being pulled into a civil war. Now anti-Gaddafists are carving up power and Libya’s capital of Tripoli is already seeing clashes as the rebels are fighting for the local airport.
Libya that was united by one goal – to topple Gaddafi, is now on the verge of chaos. Late Saturday, the so-called Libya’s national guards attempted to seize control over the Tripoli airport and attacked their former allies from the city of Zintan. Their attempt failed but left some people killed and injured. The national guards pledged to try again and were calmed down only by the tribal elders.
At the same time, militants attempted to murder Libya’s Chief Commander Khalifa Haftar.
