Cycles of War

Jean-Claude Juncker, Grand Duke Henri's Prime Minister of Luxembourg and resigning President of the Euro Group, made some very extraordinary statements in his New Year's Speech on January 7th: He advised his audience (eighty journalists among them) to take a look back at 1913, the last year of real peace in Europe before World War I and the end of the Cold War in 1989:

D'Joer 2013 kéint e Virkrisejoer ginn wéi d'Joer 1913, wou all Mënsch u Fridde gegleeft huet, ier de Krich koum. D'Joer 2013 huet onendlech vill Parallele mam Joer 1913 [translation: The year 2013 could become the year before the war, just like 1913, when everybody believed in peace until the war started ... 2013 has countless parallels with 1913.] 

Alas, a Prime Minister warns his fellow countrymen of a possible war in 2014, and close to nothing gets published by the domestic mainstream media, and not a single word outside of Luxembourg. Too strange indeed. Usually they liked to parrot every syllable of Mr. Juncker.

When cycle analyst Charles Nenner told the Fox Business network in March 2011 that major war would shake the globe by 2012, Fox-hosts sat in stunned silence. No questions, no comments. Since then NATO had  unleashed the so called 'Arab Spring', France invaded and destabilized half a dozen of African and Arabian countries and China seems to be at the brink of war with Japan. Marc Faber points out: "If the global economy doesn’t recover, usually people go to war."  Let's raid. Jim Rogers remarked: "Trade wars always lead to wars. Nobody wins trade wars, except generals who end up fighting the physical wars ... A continuation of bailouts in Europe could ultimately spark another world war."

Martin Armstrong recently declared: "The Great Depression took place because of the Sovereign Debt Crisis ... The civil unrest emerging from the collapse of government safety nets is headed this way and should start in 2014." HERE he outlined: "Yes, the Cycles of War are due to turn up in 2014. But this will most likely begin with the rise of internal separatism and civil unrest. True this model pinpointed World War I, World War II, Vietnam all spot on. This time, it is primarily focused in the West/Middle East rather than Asia ...War has been a fairly regular pastime of mankind, but it ALWAYS is linked to economics." 

Raymond Wheeler, a historian at the University of Kansas, uncovered the fact that international battles wax and wane at nearly regular intervals of about 11 years, and Buryl Payne found that the start of battles occurred mostly during the ascent, or decent, of sunspot activity every 11 years. 

Exactly 90 years ago Oswald Spengler explained: "A power can be overthrown only by another power, not by a principle, and only one power that can confront money is left. Money is overthrown and abolished by blood ... Through money, democracy becomes its own destroyer, after money has destroyed intellect." Next comes the rule of force, the power of blood and the ways of war. Spengler felt that Western Man is a proud but tragic figure, for, while he strives and creates, he secretly knows the actual goal will never be met.
