The countries that attempt to insulate themselves from the influence of the Western banking elite somehow find themselves sanctioned, isolated and branded as rogue states. Some of them are actually very, very bad states. (But there are also exceptionally bad states that are not isolated because they accept the whims of the Western banking elite.)
Syria is one of these states. Iran is too. Iraq was. Afghanistan was. Libya was. North Korea is. Cuba is in transition.
The Western banking elite are satanic. They believe nothing should be outside of their control. They harness their knowledge of the Austrian theory of the banking cycle of which the public is mostly unaware and their ability to influence key policyholders to bring about economic booms and busts of which they are always one step ahead.
You see your legitimate business competition getting a little too powerful? First you get the Fed to lower interest rates to lure these businessmen into an overconfident debt-fueled expansion. Once this has gone on to your liking, you jack up interest rates to knock your competitor's plans off balance. When they are selling off assets on the cheap to meet the debt obligations they never should have taken on, you sweep in mid-crisis, as the only one with good-enough credit to do so, and buy controlling stakes in your competitor's businesses. Rinse, wash, repeat. This is the nature of globalist wealth consolidation in the West.
But there are a few countries where this work can't be done.
So what do you do? You brand them as especially evil dictators. You get the intelligence agencies of the countries you do control to create fake dossiers claiming they have weapons of mass destruction. Then you go to war. Or, if you get an upstart president in the West that's a little tired of this canard, you get intelligence agents to actually use the weapons of mass destruction within the targeted country. Then you invade. Invasion complete > Install key people in the new Central Bank > Rinse, wash, repeat.
There aren't many countries left outside of this Western banking system. Once the consolidation of countries into this system is complete, they will move on to individuals. They want nothing outside of their control.
You see, it is possible now though very, very difficult and often illegal to avoid paying taxes, taking on debt and doing the other things that tie you indelibly into the banking system, so that the bankers always get their cut of what you produce. The Western banking elite want to make it literally impossible for you to avoid this outcome. We see this in India. Cash is being outlawed. Soon, no one will be able to buy, sell, have a job, or transact in anyway without proper government identification, eventually in the form of implantable microchips.
God is not happy with us. The western banking elites have spread a licentious ethic all over the world in order weaken their competition. Pornography, feminism, homosexuality, laziness, entertainment-based culture only distract you from your status as mere chattel for the Western banking elites and deaden your intelligence and will to fight back. They have infiltrated and gutted the Roman Catholic Church which was the primary line of defense against this licentiousness and an immoral banking order. Now Pope Francis is calling for a world central bank!
As we explained here and here, God has chosen Russia as his means of stopping the advance of these satanic elites. Russia participates in the global economic order, this is true. But she is also taking small but significant steps to insulate herself at the same time. Soros is kicked out of Russia. Christianity is promoted and homosexuality suppressed. And now, the Russians have built a backup system so that if the Western banking elites do go full-Iran (or "full-Iraq",or "full-North Korea") so to speak, on Russia, kicking them out of the SWIFT global financial system for example, Russia will have her own equivalent to SWIFT.
Russia is defending the latest target of Western banking interest expansion, Syria. You see, the bankers don't control everything or everyone yet. And while they are the actual progenitors of a worldwide conspiracy to create a satanic new wold order the nature of which large media corporations work 24/7 to obscure, they will brand their unorganized opposition as the "real" conspiracy. That's why Trump and Alex Jones, who obviously have nothing to do with Russia, are branded as Russian agents. And that's why they see Russia as evil, even though Russia is just acting as any state would, in defense of herself and a few remaining other nation-states that are not fully under globalist control.
If things continue at the current pace, Russia will eventually be checkmated and every state will come under the control of the globalists. Then the globalists have plans to implode what is left of the semi-capitalist Western nations, the current source of their global military might. They will destabilize the economy completely, dismantle the welfare state which lured you into a state of helpless dependence, implement the aforementioned cashless economic system like in India, all the while distracting you with a terrorist invasion from Islamic countries under their control labeling everyone who opposes it as racist.
At some point in this process, Our Lady has promised the then reigning pontiff will realize the irreversible nature of this state of human affairs. He will finally do what She came at Fatima to ask him to do exactly one hundred years ago, in union with all of the bishops of the world, consecrate Russia to Her Immaculate Heart. Russia will then convert to the Catholic faith and a new period of peace and Catholic ascendancy will be granted to the world. The questions is how do things get before this happens? Is a chastisement of the world through a nuclear exchange between Russia and the West necessary for us to heed the words of the Lord? Or can we forestall this outcome?
And my people, upon whom my name is called, being converted, shall make supplication to me, and seek out my face, and do penance for their most wicked ways: then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sins and will heal their land.
