2013: Will Debt Lead To World War?


2013 is here, and so are the predictions. While scanning other sites, listening to interviews, and reading the opinions of others in the alternative media, it seems that during 2013 and the few years that follow, we may be facing more of the same… but worse.

One thing’s for certain, we haven’t solved any of the fiscal problems that we as a people, nation (and world) are facing… World debt is staggering and has never been higher. Currencies are debasing in a desperate race to hold the weight of the debt burden above it. We are ever closer to facing a day of reckoning when this enormous bubble will burst into a shocking reality of payment for our excesses. The politicians and main stream media are struggling to keep the truth from the masses while more and more of what’s left of ‘thinking people’ are seeing, hearing, and realizing the magnitude of the situation we’re facing. One reason we have not already dropped into the abyss is due to the blind faith of enough gullible and short-sited people who are too busy or distracted, too brainwashed or lacking in brain power, or without incentive or motivation to look beyond what is presented in front of them by our main stream media and marketed entertainment…

Falling into the abyss may not be so bad for those who are ready for it, and for those who have already adapted a lifestyle which will be minimally impacted by the consequences. While to most it may have seemed ‘un-American’ to pay down or pay off debt, to stop spending and leveraging their monies to live a lifestyle beyond their means, to buy hard assets with cold hard cash, to begin living a lifestyle that fits within the financial income available to them… all this will be the new ‘old’ American way, when and after TSHTF. The unfortunate and disastrous consequence though will be the ensuing desperation and flailing out by those who will be ruined, those who have been depending upon the current system to keep on keeping on. It won’t be pretty.

Of course we could continue on for a time longer while the stench of the decay slowly is smelled by the ignorant, most of whom will simply plug their nose and continue on… but eventually the decay will become rotted and even those who are blind will be overcome with it. Eventually we will all pay. A question is… will it be during 2013?

Many of the predictions are doom and gloom, however I prefer to think of them as motivation for independence and self reliance. They are more reasons to adopt a lifestyle where we are more in control of our own destiny. One where we consume less and harness more of our natural surroundings. One where we create barriers of protection from the certainties of the fallout resulting from societal collapse. We must prepare ourselves. Time is running short.


Mike Adams over at NaturalNews.com just penned his own predictions for the year of oppression and insanity, some of which I concur with and have listed here for your benefit.

The global debt collapse arrives
Obama administration attempts to gut the Second Amendment
Martial Law declared across America
Extreme shortages of guns, ammo, magazines as their barter value skyrockets
Tactical weapon strikes target Iran
Massive false flag attack carried out in USA and blamed on patriots
DHS arms the TSA and begins insane abuses of Americans on roadway checkpoints
The rise of the Resistance: Secret resistance groups begin to form across America
Attacks on the First Amendment accelerate as government seizes websites
The rise of violent rhetoric among the population as disagreements turn to threats
Global government makes its move
Accelerated mainstream media attacks on patriots, preppers and veterans
Disagreement with the government characterized a “mental disorder”
Continued rise in unemployment, food stamps, welfare
Criminalization of preparedness activities as government outlaws ammo storage
Riots in the streets, followed by Martial Law
Deliberate food shortages used as a weapon of government control
Weather becomes even more radicalized, with droughts, floods, freezes
Solar weather gets nasty: Solar flares threaten communications
You will be told the answer to all our problems is “MORE government!”


Gerald Celente of TrendsResearch.com says the global financial system will continue to be propped up, the scheme being dumping cheap money into the system to perpetuate an economy that should have crashed in 2008. A currency war has broken out. He says the fuse is lit on the Middle East and North Africa. He thinks, “The Arab Spring has nothing to do with a democracy movement. It has to do with far too few having much too much and way too many having much too little.” Celente predicts, “If anybody attacks Iran, it will be full-fledged World War III.” You can view his interview with Greg Hunter, here.


Mac Slavo of SHTFplan.com believes this all ends with war when he cites the predictions of Kyle Bass, a well known hedge fund principal who accurately predicted the subprime mortgage meltdown who is now predicting it’s just a question of when will this unravel and how will it unravel. He confirms how we sit today at the world’s largest peacetime accumulation of debt in world history… and says “You know how this ends right? This ends through war… and not just small ones.” He goes on to say “You’re going to see more social unrest”; “The government’s never going to tell you that it’s going to happen.”

Mac says, Debt has sky rocketed and we’re not going to pay it back – ever. Like the mafia does when debts don’t get paid, our creditors are eventually going to resort to ‘breaking some legs.’ But we’re talking about debts of entire sovereign nations here, so the tools used to ‘take care of it’ won’t be crowbars or baseball bats, but rather, soldiers, tanks and intercontinental ballistic missiles. War is coming – just as it has throughout history.
