LEAKED WIKILEAKS DOC REVEALS US MILITARY USE OF IMF, WORLD BANK AS “UNCONVENTIONAL” WEAPONS

In a leaked military manual on “unconventional warfare” recently highlighted by WikiLeaks, the U.S. Army states that major global financial institutions — such as the World Bank, International Monetary Fund (IMF), and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) — are used as unconventional, financial “weapons in times of conflict up to and including large-scale general war,” as well as in leveraging “the policies and cooperation of state governments.”

The document, officially titled “Field Manual (FM) 3-05.130, Army Special Operations Forces Unconventional Warfare” and originally written in September 2008, was recently highlighted by WikiLeaks on Twitter in light of recent events in Venezuela as well as the years-long, U.S.-led economic siege of that country through sanctions and other means of economic warfare. Though the document has generated new interest in recent days, it had originally been released by WikiLeaks in December 2008 and has been described as the military’s “regime change handbook.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One very painful example of how financial houses destabilize emerging countries, is by not letting them repatriate their gold, as happened with the Bank of England, and Venezuela last November:

November, 2018: The Bank of England refuses to release Venezuela's gold.

The article continued:

"Three days ago, when we reported that following Trump's latest sanctions targeting Venezuela's gold sector president Maduro was seeking to repatriate all of Venezuela's gold - some 14 tons - held at the Bank of England, we cautioned that since the BoE "sought to clarify what Venezuela wants to do with the gold", this suggested that despite Venezuela being the rightful owner of this gold, Venezuela was about to face challenges in getting it back."

Those 14 tons of gold could have done much in terms of relaxing Venezuela's financial crisis.

And please, let us not forget the havoc US sanctions and financial manipulations, like Maduro unable to repatriate Venezuela's gold have created for Venezuela, courtesy of both Presidents Obama and Trump:

Jan 16, 2017: Obama extends Executive Order, targeting Venezuela for 2nd time, labels Venezuela "an unusual and extraordinary Threat"

(The "serious and extraordinary threat, of course, being the huge oil reserves Venezuela possessed a the time, which have now been confirmed by new exploration in the Orinoco Belt)

Folks, this push for regime change in Venezuela, has utterly no relationship to Maduro's leadership, as lousy as it might have been.

The US government hobnobs, shakes hands, and makes deals with some of the worst tyrants on the planet, Like the Butcher of Yemen, (Prince Mohammed bin Salman); the Butcher of Gaza, (Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu), and the Butcher of Bahrain, King Isa bin Salman Al Khalifa, (who constantly tortures, and indefinitely jails, peaceful protestors who are advocating a constitutional republic, but is the home for the American 5th Fleet).

And here is a companion piece, also from blacklistednews.com, about the coup in Venezuela: IS THIS THE MOST BLATANT US COUP EVER?!?
