Part 7Though Babylon should mount up to heaven and though she should fortify the height of her strength, yet from me shall the spoiler come in to her, says the Lord. . . .
Because the spoiler is come unto her, even unto Babylon, and her mighty men are taken, every one of their bows is broken:
for the Lord God shall surely recompense. . . . The broad wall of Babylon shall be utterly broken and her high gate shall be burned with fire: and the people shall labor in vain and the folk in the fire shall grow weary." - Jer. 51:53,56,58

BABYLON’S INFLUENCE IN THE AFFAIRS OF KINGDOM #5
(Russia and the Former Soviet Republics)
OIL October 22, 2001 THE NEW GREAT GAME:
Oil Politics in Central Asia
NEW YORK/Yahoo News By Ted Rall
"Nursultan Nazarbayev has a terrible problem. He's the president and former Communist
Party boss of Kazakhstan, the second-largest republic of the former Soviet Union.
A few years ago, the giant country struck oil in the eastern portion of the Caspian Sea. Geologists estimate that sitting beneath the wind-blown steppes of Kazakhstan are
50 billion barrels of oil -- by far the biggest untapped reserves in the world.
(Saudi Arabia, currently the world's largest oil producer, is believed to have about 30 billion barrels remaining.) ..."Nazarbayev, therefore, has spent most of the last decade
trying to get his land-locked oil out to sea...
But the longer the pipeline, the more expensive and vulnerable... The shortest route runs through Iran but Kazakhstan is too closely aligned with the U.S. to offend by cutting a
deal with Teheran.
"Russia has helpfully offered to build a line connecting Kzakh oil rigs to the Black Sea, but neighboring Turkmenistan has experienced trouble with the Russians --
they tend to divert the oil for their own uses without paying... There's even a plan to
run crude out through China,
but the proposed 5,300-mile line would be far too long to prove profitable.
"The logical alternative, then, is UNOCAL's plan, which is to extend Turkmenistan's
existing system west to the Kazakh field on the Caspian and southeast to the
Pakistani port of Karachi on the Arabian Sea.
That project runs through Afghanistan.
As Central Asian expert Ahmed Rashid describes in his book Taliban,
published last year, the U.S. and Pakistan decided to install a stable regime in place in
Afghanistan around 1994 -- a regime that would end the country's civil war and thus
ensure the safety of the Unocal pipeline project. Impressed by the ruthlessness and
willingness of the then-emerging Taliban to cut a pipeline deal...
As recently as 1999, U.S. taxpayers paid the entire annual salary of every single Taliban govern ment official, all in the hopes of returning to the days of
"Hearkening back to 19th century power politics between Russia and British India,Rashid
dubbed the struggle for control of post-Soviet Central Asia "the new Great Game."
Predictably, the Taliban Frankenstein got out of control. ...on September 11th,
Washington's patience with its former client finally expired.
"Finally the Bushes have the perfect excuse to do what the U.S. has wanted
all along - invade and/or install an old-school puppet regime in Kabul.
Real politik no more cares about the 6,000 dead than it concerns itself with
oppressed women in Afghanistan;
this ersatz war by a phony president is solely about getting the UNOCAL deal done
without interference from annoying local middlemen. ..."As Bush would say,
"make no mistake": this is about oil. It's always about oil.
And to twist a late `90s cliché, it's only boring because it's true.*

U.S. INVOLVEMENT IN CENTRAL ASIA
Experts have predicted that the world will run out of petroleum somewhere around
2050 because of the tremendous increase in the use of oil and gas by the Chinese.
The Chinese have been and still are very dependent on the United States to help them
procure the oil they need. Since the greatest remaining oil reserve appears to be
located in the belly of the former Soviet Republics. The United States considers it vital
to its interests to control the flow of oil from that region.
Russia has offered to build a pipeline all the way to China but lacks the resources to
do so. This is why Russia is becoming more and more wary of the United States
involvement in Central Asian affairs.
WHY THE WORLD BANK BEGAN CASHIERING RUSSIA IN 1995
Unfortunately, the leaders of Russia were as much a part of the process of
‘cashiering’ as were the world bankers.
Through a plan called ‘privatization all the state holdings were sold off to
‘private parties’, (just as in Indonesia, Peru and other countries.) Companies
formerly run by the state were now in the hands of ‘private parties’.
Many plants were closed down (the ‘profit motive’)and thousands were thrown out of work. Pensions disappeared.
Even soldiers received no pay. But this was all part of a plan to seize the assets of a great empire, especially its oil production, refining and distribution facilities.
The reason? America’s newly designed and mandated mission makes for an odd equation for as the U.S. Commission on National Security/21st Century notes;"The greater Near East -- defined here as the Arab World, Israel, Turkey, Iran, Central Asia, the Caucasus, and the sub-continent -- is the site of the world’s largest supply of fossil fuels and a place where several ambitious powers seek regional hegemony."And yet, the same Commission recognizes that the U.S. to fully realize the benefit of those resources must find a way to control them and to get them to the world largest market -- Asia -- for;…"increased demand for oil in Asia will outpace the world…""And so in Afghanistan we have, as in other areas in the same region, something different than what we thought. Monbiot clarifies from the same above article;
"The invasion of Afghanistan is certainly a campaign against terrorism, but it may also be a late colonial adventure…. Afghanistan is as indispensable to the regional control and transport of oil in central Asia as Egypt was in the Middle East."Afghanistan has some oil and gas of its own, but not enough to qualify as a major strategic concern. Its northern neighbors, by contrast, contain reserves which could be critical to future global supply. In 1998, Dick Cheney, now U.S. Vice-president but then chief executive of a major oil services company,Why? Monbiot continues...
"I cannot think of a time when we have had a region emerge as suddenly to become as strategically significant as the Caspian."
But the oil and gas there is worthless until it is moved. The only route which makes both political and economic sense is through Afghanistan."… pipelines through Afghanistan would allow the U.S. both to pursue its aim of "diversifying energy supply" and to penetrate the world's most lucrative markets. Growth in European oil consumption is slow and competition is intense.And much history verifies America's efforts to profit from Central Asia's
In south Asia, by contrast, demand is booming and competitors are scarce. Pumping oil south and selling it in Pakistan and India, in other words, is far more profitable than pumping it west and selling it in Europe.
vast fossil fields;As the author Ahmed Rashid has documented, in 1995 the U.S. oil company UNOCAL started negotiating to build oil and gas pipelines from Turkmenistan, through Afghanistan and into Pakistani ports on the Arabian sea. The company's scheme required a single administration in Afghanistan, which would guarantee safe passage for its goods. Soon after the Taliban took
Kabul in September 1996, the Telegraph reported that
"oil industry insiders say the dream of securing a pipeline across Afghanistan is the main reason why Pakistan, a close political ally of America's, has been so supportive of the Taliban, and why America has quietly acquiesced in its conquest of Afghanistan".
UNOCAL invited some of the leaders of the Taliban to Houston, where they were royally entertained."… For the first year of Taliban rule, US policy towards the regime appears to have been determined principally by UNOCAL's interests. In 1997 a US diplomat told Rashid
"the Taliban will probably develop like the Saudis did. There will be Aramco [the former US oil consortium in Saudi Arabia] pipelines, an emir, no parliament and lots of Sharia law. We can live with that."
US policy began to change only when feminists and greens started campaigning against both UNOCAL's plans and the government's covert backing for Kabul."Even so, as a transcript of a congress… shows, UNOCAL failed to get the message.
In February 1998, John Maresca, its head of international relations, told representatives that the growth in demand for energy in Asia and sanctions against Iran determined that Afghanistan remained "the only other possible route" for Caspian oil. The company, once the Afghan government was recognized by foreign diplomats and banks, still hoped to build a 1,000-mile pipeline, which would carry a million barrels a day."**********************************************C.I.A. AND OSAMA BIN LADEN
by Congressman Ron Paul of Texas"We should recognize that American tax dollars helped to create the very Taliban government that now wants to destroy us. In the late 1970’s and early 80s, the CIA was very involved in the training and funding of various fundamentalist Islamic groups in Afghanistan, some of which later became today’s brutal Taliban government.
In fact the U. S. government admits to giving the groups at least 6 billion dollars in military aid and weaponry, a staggering sum that would be even large in today’s dollars."Bin Laden himself received training and weapons from the CIA and that that agency’s military and financial assistance helped the Afghan rebels build a set of encampments around the city of Khost. Tragically, those same camps became terrorist training facilities for Bin Laden, who uses some of the same soldiers our military once trained as lieutenants in his sickening terrorist network.
Our heroic pilots are now busy bombing the same camps we paid to build, all the while threatened by the same Stinger missiles originally supplied by our CIA. . . ." - End QuoteWe should also keep in mind that Afghanistan is by far the largest producer of Opium in the world - most estimates place it at about 70% of the world’s supply. And just in case you were not aware of this little tidbit, the CIA has always sought to control the production and distribution of Opium.
Do you wonder why we haven’t won the war on drugs yet???***************************************************WHO PLANNED 9-11-01

Euro Intel Experts Dismiss 'War On Terrorism' As Deception
By Christopher Bollyn
American Free Press
12-4-1European intelligence experts dismiss the Bush "war on terrorism" as deception and reveal the Real politik behind the aggression against Afghanistan.Berlin - In Germany, where war plans for Afghanistan were already being
discussed in July…intelligence experts say the terror attacks of September 11
could not have been carried out without the support of a state secret service.
former president of Germany's domestic intelligence service, Verfassungsschutz,
told AFP that
"the deathly precision" and "the magnitude of planning" behind the attacks of September 11 would have needed "years of planning."
Such a sophisticated operation, Werthebach said, would require the "fixed frame"
of a state intelligence organization,
something not found in a "loose group" of terrorists like the one allegedly led by Mohammed Atta while he studied in Hamburg. Many people would have been
involved in the planning of such an operation and Werthebach pointed to
the absence of leaks as further indication that the attacks were
"state organized actions." Von B'low told AFP that he believes that the Israeli intelligence service, Mossad, is behind the September 11 terror attacks.
These attacks, he said, were carried out to turn public opinion against the Arabs,
and boost military and security spending.
"You don't get the higher echelons," von B'low said, referring to the "architectural structure" which masterminds such terror attacks.
At this level, he said, the organization doing the planning, such as Mossad, is
primarily interested in affecting public opinion.
The architectural level planners use corrupt "guns for hire" such as
Abu Nidal, the Palestinian terrorist
who von B'low called "an instrument of Mossad,"
high-ranking Stasi (former East German secret service) operatives, or
Libyan agents who organize terror attacks using dedicated people, for
example Palestinian and Arab "freedom fighters." … Both Werthebach and
von B'low said the lack of an open and official investigation, such as congressional hearings, into the events of September 11 was incomprehensible.AFP asked von B'low about the Taliban's ban on opium production: "Seventy percent of the drug trade is licensed by the intelligence agencies," von B'low said, and they are interested in keeping the drug traffic "running through their mills.""The BND (German secret service) is steered by the CIA and the CIA is steered by Mossad," von B'low said. Horst Ehmke, who coordinated the German secret services directly under German Prime Minister Willi Brandt in the 70s, predicted a similar terrorist attack in his novel, Torches of Heaven, published last year, in which Turkish terrorists crash hijacked planes into Berlin.Although Ehmke had long expected "fundamentalist attacks," when he saw the televised images from September 11, he said it looked like a "Hollywood production.""Terrorists could not have carried out such an operation with 4 hijacked planes without the support of a secret service," Ehmke said, although he did not want to point to any particular agency."The most important thing in the struggle against terrorists, who are abusing religion, is the battle for the soul of the people and the nations," Ehmke said. "If this isn't resolved successfully, the 21st Century could be bloodier than the last."A former Stasi agent who had warned the German secret service of terror attacks in America between September 10-20 told AFP that a high ranking Stasi chief named J'rgen Rogalla, who is "an airplane terror specialist," was probably involved in the attacks of September 11 along with Abu Nidal.Both Nidal and Rogalla work with the Mossad, the former agent told AFP. Nidal, was said to be in Baghdad, and is a "leading officer for some Mossad agents." The agent said that Nidal was "involved directly" in the events of September 11.September 11 was preparation for a larger attack on the United States,
which is part of "an old plan," the agent said. Based on prior knowledge of this
plan, the agent said that more attacks are imminent and that aircraft carriers may
be targeted next.
Rogalla is also strongly anti-religious and attacks on cathedrals or places of
religious significance before Christmas are likely. ...Under the influence of U.S.
oil companies, the administration of George W. Bush blocked U.S. secret service investigations on terrorism, while it bargained with the Taliban to turn over Osama bin Laden in exchange for political recognition and economic aid, two French intelligence analysts claim.
Osama bin Laden and the Taliban received threats of possible American military strikes against them two months before the terrorist assaults on New York and Washington, according to The Guardian (UK).
The warnings to the Taliban originated at a four-day meeting of senior Americans, Russians, Iranians and Pakistanis at a hotel in Berlin in mid-July.
The meetings took place under the arbitration of Francesc Vendrell, personal representative of UN secretary general Kofi Annan, to discuss the situation in Afghanistan. The three Americans at the Berlin meeting were Tom Simons,
former US ambassador to Pakistan, Karl "Rick" Inderfurth, a former assistant secretary of state for south Asian affairs, and Lee Coldren, who headed the
office of Pakistan, Afghan and Bangladesh affairs in the
state department until 1997.
There were other meetings arranged by Vendrell in which "representatives of the
U.S. Government and Russia, and the six countries that border with Afghanistan
were present," according to the French authors. "Sometimes, representatives of the Taliban also sat around the table."
CARPET OF GOLD--OR BOMBS
The U.S. Government's primary objective in Afghanistan was to consolidate the
position of the Taliban regime in order to obtain access to the oil and gas reserves of Central Asia, the French authors wrote.
Until August, the U.S. Government saw the Taliban regime "as a source of stability
in Central Asia that would enable the construction of an oil pipeline
across Central Asia," from the rich oil fields in Turkmenistan,
Uzbekistan, and Kazakhstan, through Afghanistan and Pakistan, to the Indian Ocean, they said.
"The oil and gas reserves of Central Asia have been controlled by
Russia. The Bush government wanted to change all that," the book says.
When the Taliban refused to accept U.S. conditions, "this rationale of energy security changed into a military one.""The Americans
indicated to us that in case the Taliban does not behave and in case Pakistan also doesn't help us to influence the Taliban, then the United States would be left with no option but to take an overt action against Afghanistan," said Niaz Naik, a former foreign minister of Pakistan, who attended the meetings.
On French television, Naik said during the "6+2" meeting in Berlin in July, the discussions turned around "the formation of a government of national unity.
If the Taliban had accepted this coalition, they would have immediately received international economic aid.""And the pipe lines from Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan would have come," he added. Naik also claimed that Tom Simons, the U.S. representative at these meetings, openly threatened the Taliban and Pakistan.
"Simons said, 'either the Taliban behave as they ought to, or Pakistan convinces
them to do so, or we will use another option'. The words Simons used were
'a military operation'," Naik said. "At one moment during the negotiations,
the U.S. representatives told the Taliban,
'either you accept our offer of a carpet of gold, or we bury you
under a carpet of bombs',"
Brisard said in an interview in Paris.
*******************************************CIA EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR BUZZY KRONGARD MANAGED FIRM THAT HANDLED PUT OPTIONS ON UAL
by Michael C. Ruppert
[© COPYRIGHT, 2001, Michael C. Ruppert and FTW Publications, www.copvcia.com. All Rights Reserved. May be reprinted or distributed for
non-profit purposes only.]
FTW, October 9, 2001 Although uniformly ignored by the mainstream U.S. media, there is abundant and clear evidence that a number of transactions in financial markets indicated specific (criminal) foreknowledge of the September 11 attacks
on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
In the case of at least one of these trades -- which has left a $2.5 million prize unclaimed -- the firm used to place the put options; on United Airlines stock was,
managed by the man who is now in the number three Executive Director
position at the Central Intelligence Agency.
Until 1997 A.B.Buzzy Krongard had been Chairman of the investment bank A.B. Brown. AB Brown was acquired by Bankers Trust in 1997.
Krongard then became, as part of the merger, Vice Chairman of Bankers
Trust-AB Brown, one of 20 major U.S. banks named by Senator Carl Levin
this year as being connected to money laundering. Krongard (re?) joined the
CIA in 1998 as counsel to CIA Director George Tenet.
He was promoted to CIA Executive Director by President Bush in March of
this year. BT was acquired by Deutsche Bank in 1999. The combined firm is
the single largest bank in Europe. And, as we shall see, Deutsche Bank played
several key roles in events connected to the September 11 attacks.
THE SCOPE OF KNOWN INSIDER TRADING
Before looking further into these relationships it is necessary to look at the
insider trading information that is being ignored by Reuters, The New York
Times and other mass media.
It is well documented that the CIA has long monitored such trades; in real time;
as potential warnings of terrorist attacks and other economic moves contrary to
Previous stories in FTW have specifically highlighted the use of Promis software
to monitor such trades.
It is necessary to understand only two key financial terms to understand the significance of these trades, selling short; and put options;.
Selling Short; is the borrowing of stock, selling it at current market prices, but not being required to actually produce the stock for some time. If the stock falls precipitously after the short contract is entered,
the seller can then fulfill the contract by buying the stock after the price has fallen
and complete the contract at the pre-crash price. These contracts often have a
window of as long as four months.
Put Options, are contracts giving the buyer the option to sell stocks at a later
date. Purchased at nominal prices of, for example, $1.00 per share, they are sold
in blocks of 100 shares.
If exercised, they give the holder the option of selling selected stocks at a future
date at a price set when the contract is issued. Thus, for an investment of $10,000
it might be possible to tie up 10,000 shares of United or American Airlines at $100
per share, and the seller of the option is then obligated to buy them if the option is executed.
If the stock has fallen to $50 when the contract matures, the holder of the option
can purchase the shares for $50 and immediately sell them for $100; regardless
of where the market then stands.
A call option is the reverse of a put option, which is, in effect, a derivatives bet that the stock price will go up.
A September 21 story by the Israeli Herzliyya International Policy Institute for Counter-terrorism, entitled
Black Tuesday: The Worlds Largest Insider Trading Scam;
documented the following trades connected to the September 11 attacks:
- Between September 6 and 7, the Chicago Board Options Exchange saw purchases of 4,744 put options on United Airlines, but only 396 call options Assuming that 4,000 of the options were bought by people with advance knowledge of the imminent attacks, these insiders would have profited by almost $5 million. -
On September 10, 4,516 put options on American Airlines were bought on the
Chicago exchange, compared to only 748 calls. Again, there was no news at that
point to justify this imbalance; Again, assuming that 4,000 of these options trades represent insiders, they would represent a gain of about $4 million.
- [The levels of put options purchased above were more than six times higher than normal.]- No similar trading in other airlines occurred on the Chicago exchange in
the days immediately preceding Black Tuesday.
- Morgan Stanley Dean Witter & Co., which occupied 22 floors of the World Trade Center, saw 2,157 of its October $45 put options bought in the three trading days before Black Tuesday;
this compares to an average of 27 contracts per day before September 6. Morgan Stanleys share price fell from $48.90 to $42.50 in the aftermath of the attacks. Assuming that 2,000 of these options contracts were bought based upon knowledge
of the approaching attacks,
their purchasers could have profited by at least $1.2 million. - Merrill Lynch & Co., which occupied 22 floors of the World Trade Center, saw 12,215 October $45 put options bought in the four trading days before the attacks; the previous average volume in those shares had been 252 contracts per day [a 1200% increase!].
When trading resumed, Merrills shares fell from $46.88 to $41.50; assuming that 11,000 option contracts were bought by insiders, their profit would have been
about $5.5 million.
WILL THE REAL ISLAM PLEASE STAND UP
The following is quoted from the Koran:
"When the sacred months are over, slay the idolater wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them and lie in ambush everywhere for them."
- Sarah 9:5, The Koran, Translated by N.J. Sawood, Penguin Book,
The people of the west have a tendency to forget the terrible campaigns made
against Europe by the followers of Islam. The Moors conquered Spain in the 8th century and tired to take France but were repelled.
The Ottomen conquered Constantinople and invaded Romania.
Today, Arabic governments have proclaimed a ‘fatwa’ (religious order) against the Christians in Indonesia, southern Sudan and Nigeria. Two million people have been put to death in Sudan alone and many more sold into slavery.
The US military assisted the UN to disarm the people of south Sudan and stood by when the genocide began.
All for rich oil fields and diamond mines found there? ? ?
John Walker Lindh, the 20 year old American now detained by the U.S. and who fought for Taliban, recently disclosed two concluding phases of the al-Qaeda battle plan against America;
"Phase II" of al Qaeda's war against the United States will occur at the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which ends Sunday
[ed. note, December 16th, 2001].
Mr. Lindh told U.S. intelligence officials that the Ramadan attack will involve the use of biological weapons.
A third phase of al Qaeda's war on the United States will result in the destruction of the entire country, the Islamic convert stated.
Until next time, be strong and God bless.
