For those that are still lulled into the belief that this is a typical economic cycle of boom and bust we’re facing in this country, it couldn’t be farther from the truth. While the United States is in fact facing an economic crisis, the roots causes of the country’s ills are much deeper than the symptoms suggest on the outside. We are under a full scale economic attack in the last phase which will push us off the cliff. The following article underscores this point:
Three news items landed on my desk today from three different sources all pointing to a Phase Three attack designed to destroy the American way of life or even Western civilization as we know it. This isn’t alarmist. Rather it is the studied conclusion of current events with a solid understanding of the fragility demonstrated in 2008. Make no mistake. Our system nearly imploded less than four years ago and we have done very little to address the risks of a systemic attack on our financial system. Since the publication of my report nearly three years ago for DoD (Economic Warfare; Risks and Responses), I have gone to great lengths to educate and awaken our national security apparatus, Congress, and anyone in a leadership position who would listen. In the past year or so, I have taken the case to the American people to get them to wake up to the very real threats we face. This effort has included hundreds of interviews in national and local media, Op-Eds, articles in major publications, a national speaking tour, and finally the publication of the NY Times best-selling book Secret Weapon (www.secretweapon.org).
Despite our best efforts, we have not received the attention necessary to address this fast-developing crisis. Many fine people have listened and understood our message. Far too many, however, have ignored the warnings due to arrogance. They wrongly assume that the events of 2008 were “one-offs” that won’t repeat. They can’t believe that we have enemies who would do harm to our economy. In short, they doubt that anyone has the motive, means, and opportunity to bring harm to our economy. Quite simply, they are wrong and their excessive arrogance is endangering all of us.
[If you haven’t been following us over the past year, first go to www.secretweapon.org. From this website, you can access our Reviews tab and see responses from some of the people we have briefed. These are serious people representing experience from every Presidential administration dating back to Jimmy Carter. And, that’s just a portion of those who have been in senior leadership positions over the past 30 years who now know of and acknowledge the serious problem we are describing. You can also check out the Newsroom tab. Scroll through and view, listen to, or read a small portion of interviews, Op_eds, and articles. Be sure to dive into the Previous Entries at the bottom of the page because there are some really good media pieces in earlier entries. Then, be sure to really dive through this Blog. Start at January 2011 and read the many posts on all subjects that back up what we are saying. And, you can even find the report I prepared for DoD. Here is a web link (although I have not verified it page by page): SCRIBD.com Economic Warfare by Kevin Freeman. There have been almost 52,000 downloads of that report.]
