YOU are one of a kind, you are YOU!

I’m over with that phase where I wanted to be like someone else. To be fair, I’ve admired a lot of people and I still do but I had never thought of erasing my personal recognition and be like that one person. I never liked the idea of following someone to an extent where my own personality blurs out.

I find it funny when people talk about God and its creation, appreciate diversity and vividness yet lack faith in being themselves, in being different, in being original.

Its a lot easier to admire somebody and replicate, but that’s not where your charisma shines. People who follow and replicate overlook the biggest fact of life that they respond differently, have different genius zones, carry different auras, encounter different problems, and most importantly carry different souls to wander. If God has kept you different, why copy someone else? Capitalizing on someone else’s innate talent, style or speech is not what you were born for. For rising above, work on yourself, listen to your heart, find your niche and mind it, there is no singular way to look for it. Self-finding could be accidental and uncalled perhaps. All you need is to have that eye to witness your true color!

Personality begins where comparison ends! – Karl Lagerfield

Unfortunately, girls who aspire to live someone else’s life, a lot to be like Spice Girls, Dakota Johnson, Hanna Montana, Malala Yousufzai etc., they often let their originality fade out. Hmm let’s say you are Malala for a day, ask yourself if you can live your early life in stones? Do you want to have that bullet in your face? Trust me, that’s not easy and that’s not you! You can fight for education, but it is important to understand what made her fight….her circumstances! Living and making your best in your own circumstances offer true results. God knows, you may stumble across a lot better opportunities in being yourself.  So break those barriers and brush off the burden to be like someone, be yourself!  Imagine if Christie, Barbie doll’s first African-American friend character comes out with blonde hair? That’s crazy, yet classy too…I love the idea, you may not…contradiction is there and that’s the beauty of life. Life is not black and white, there are shades of gray that you must value, understand and adhere to.

This blog has reminded me of another awakening experience I’d witnessed in my school days. One of my school fellows was a famous cool girl with spotless skin, fearless attitude, glossy lips, and blow dried hair. I don’t have to explain the reaction she used to get … haha that’s common! But there was another girl who wasn’t naturally blessed with that fetish. The reaction she got wasn’t healthy. What’s wrong? What made her attempt suicide? Replication! She expected the same outcome, a number of boyfriends and calls waiting on her list.  But sadly, replication is not always rational. Since I’m a woman and get along with women daily, I’ve observed that they compare a lot. This habit is notoriously annoying, but yeah they even notice what brand you wear. And if someone is cruising, crabbing or cursing, they make sure they are not left behind. I wonder, why? Where on earth they get time? The problem is, they want to remain ahead of the race, regardless if they even belong to that race or not. Choose your stage!

“If you don’t have a strategy, you’re part of someone else’s strategy.” Alvin Toffler

The best way to be you and have your individual strategy is to admire people who believe in being themselves. They motivate you for trying things that you like and love doing. That’s where you will shine, rise and begin. Get surrounded by people who value humanity, ethics, relationship, choices without judging you.

My photography teacher, Akbar Mistry is a Doctor, specializing to become an anesthesiologist. But his passion for photography made him renowned. For a part of his life, he was into social run to be a doctor or an engineer. He became one but did he succeed? He may later, if he starts practicing but his passion for photography is all over him, I don’t think he would ever be as good in practicing medicine as he is in photography.

Sumera Iqbal is another gem I met and got to know her well. Despite of her outspoken ideas, I love the way she is connected to the Supreme and this world together. She went through drastic ups and downs, but she never surrendered to be someone she wasn’t. She worked harder, to be where she is today! She believed in being her own boss, in being her way and she made it. Not because she had guts, but more likely because she discovered herself and paid attention to what her body, mind and soul required. She pursued to feel free, live and practice her interest and today, she is a thriving film maker!

These are a few people that I know individually. Observing closely amongst my people and everyday life experiences has made it easier for me to understand the beauty in being yourself. In short, I’ve learned, unlearned and relearned that I shall wear my own grace, be natural, and let myself age rightly with time….that’s how life is. I’m sure, that thin silver lining will bring wisdom, power to empower and will help me die peacefully.

Here I say, I’m Madiha Yusuf and I love the way I am. Good or bad, I wear my own grace, my skin and my intellect. I never give a second thought on improving myself, as learning is lifelong and I still seek mentors to learn but there I stop! Good enough. I maintain that fine difference between admiring and replicating. I’m one of a kind, I’m what I am.

Happy Reading!

Filmmaker, blogger … butcher? How TED Fellow Bassam Tariq works to upend conventional views of Muslim life

TED Blog

Bassam-Tariq-TED-Talk-CTAArtist Bassam Tariq is determined to shine a light on the incredible diversity of Muslim life – and he does it by any means necessary. Known for his blogging project 30 Mosques in 30 Days, Tariq and a friend took a month-long road trip through all 50 states, breaking their Ramadan fast each evening in mosques along the way and documenting the people they met.

He also traveled to Pakistan to film These Birds Walk, a documentary celebrating the life of the unassuming man who created Pakistan’s first ambulance service, through the lens of a coming-of-age story. And if that’s not enough, back home in New York City, Tariq cofounded Honest Chops, a halal butcher shop in the East Village that offers high-quality meat to his neighbors, 90 percent of whom aren’t even Muslim.

As his TED Talk, “The beauty and diversity of Muslim life,”is released…

Under The Veil

1003042_1_0_prm-keyart_1024x640

Under The Veil
Is pain
Is hate
Is despair
Is doubt
Is anger
Is rage
Is revenge
Is regret
Thou shalt never lift
Thou shalt never push
Or the wildest cries will be heard
Let it rest in its place
Let the crowd pass over
Let the dust set over
Let not the hardest of winds uncover!
Under the veil,
Are endless emotions
Wait for the time to come
Wait for the world to witness
Wait for me to go breathless
Here comes the inevitable
Wait for me to rest forever!
A time will come
When the encryption will be read
When the story untold will echo
When words will go meaningless
When the most obliged promises will win
The swallowing silence will turn rattling
Let the time come
The living one will fall
Drowning in guilt, fighting with pain, mind reeling back
Loud, louder loudest will shout be
For a chance, too late it would be
Nothing will change,
The swallowing silence will rise again
Under the veil it shalt soon be.
Under the veil,
is a life of countless moments
It will bleed out in desperation
Or will be buried forever!

O man,
I created life to test you,
I created desires to provoke you,
I created conscience to hold you,
But I created one thing to hold you above all,
to keep you together,
that constitutes the entire cosmos –
forming its own cosmic melody,
transcends beyond space and time,
tinkles from heavens to earth,
beyond your eyes but ethereal at heart,

O man, here I come again – I created one thing to keep you together
let your ego not be a barrier,
let your lust not obstruct it from flowing,
let it pour within,
let it dance and prevails around you,
let your rage not bound to conventional dimensions,

O man, be wiser- let that one thing to keep you together
listen to your heart and let it play its own music,
let it not refrain you from growing above the horizon,
Form a bond and grow together!
Let LOVE be the utmost part,
Yes, I created LOVE to keep you together,
Let LOVE be YOU……
Let YOU be the LOVE!

The Importance of Self Control: See How a Marshmallow Test Shaped Up Child Development Psychology!

marshmallow-girl-large

Experts say, exercising self-control is the key to success. Ever thought over, why you fail to resist and your willpower couldn’t stretch you longer, just when you need it most? Walter Mischel’s marshmallow test is one of the best studies to help people understand the importance of self-control. Mischel was a psychologist, who first set an ideology over self-control and its effects on a child’s future life. His test was later reserved as a touchstone of the developmental psychology.
Children today, tend to lack self-control and its application in their lives that sometimes lead them to consequences in terms of poor self esteem, drug abuse, social instability, poor-financial strength and behavioral disorders.
To know what the test results had been and how important is for children to adhere to self-control, this article elaborates the study below.
Case Study: Walter Mischel on his Marshmallow Experiment
In late 1960s, Walter Mischel, a child psychologist set a rather simplistic experiment to test child’s self-control and its downstream effects in his life. He left a group of children aged four to six in a room, with a bell and a single chosen treat (marshmallows). The child was asked to wait for 15 minutes and if he couldn’t, he can ring the bell.
If a child rang the bell, the psychologist would give the child a marshmallow. But if a child didn’t ring the bell and had waited for the set time (15 minutes), the psychologist would eventually come in a pre-determined time and would treat the child with ‘two’ marshmallows.
The experiment itself was simple but the results had been revealing. The set of children, included in the experiment were tracked for a decade to observe changes in their lives. Mischel and his team have been able to sort it out, how profound were the effects, with a note how practicing self-control could add to our lives.
The Marshmallow Test Results:
At following up Mischel’s succession for over a decade, psychologists and researchers observed a few astonishing patterns. Keeping those pre-schoolers and their lifestyles in account, the children that had resisted ringing the bell and believed in controlling their urge, rated higher on wealth, healths, and life-stability, are less likely to have developed drug addiction or committed any crime. However, children that had not shown any resistance or hesitation to demand their marshmallows before time, showed numerous shortfalls and lifestyle fluctuations.
Another famous yet more recent research was held in New Zealand that had followed 1,000 children for three decades, found similar results.
The most interesting statistic shows, “Only 10% of the children who were good at practicing self-control grew with low income jobs whereas, children for over 30% with poor self-control have low income jobs”.
The outcome of the research in New Zealand shows, children scoring higher self-control have higher self-esteem, better relationships and professional skills with maximum optimal social or emotional responses, and are found less likely in binge-eating or alcohol abuse.
Why is self-control so important?
Psychologists agree on the fact that self-control is essential to happiness, satisfaction and success. To know why it is a vital part, we need to dig deeper.
It isn’t tough to understand the role of self-control in becoming successful or an acceptable entity of a society. In simple terms, sitting in a boring lecture for hours will lead to a good degree; you are taught and asked to go gradual – from internship to professional level, without quitting in the run.
Practicing self-control has visible effects while developing child’s psychology. It helps in strengthening up the willpower to work for major goals and helps in sticking up the regime, without surrendering for short-term gratification. When you start believing what self-control could earn you, it is easier to practice it. It is more like, “Watch the wood, not the trees”. Counting on trees will stress you as you go higher, seeing wood as a whole would ease up the cut.
What get you more self-control?
It wouldn’t be unfair to say you share a slice of self-control (whether good or bad) with genetics and a larger proportion with early childhood training. For instance, study says, “Children whose parents are frequent movers (from one house to another) are less likely to show resistance or apply self-control and tend to lack discipline. The major reason to this is, they have been automated to short-term solutions with a quick response to it. And that’s where they skip to practice self-control whereas; having focused on long-term planning and abstract rewards is much more fruitful in terms of life stability and success.
Dr Kentaro Fujita, a psychologist at a University of Ohio State says, “One of the best ways to learn or practice self-control is to set actual rewards with abstract reasoning”.
There is no age to learn self-control, however the sooner you start, the better it is. To get a better share of life, practicing self-control could do wonders. People who lack self-control tend to concentrate on their instinctive desires (I want to eat marshmallows now). But if you think rationally, you can easily differentiate between the responses of instant gratification and long-term success.

MALALA: A GEM THAT DAZZLED OR A CONSPIRACY THEORY???

My article is structured in two parts. First part: (Malala: A Gem that Dazzled) is about what the world is watching, perceiving and reacting to the whole issue and the second part: (Gul Makkai’s Story yet to be unfold) is about what facts and figures lies behind it where we as common men are unable to reach to. I would leave the conclusion on my readers to draw whatever picture they are more comfortable with.
I’ve written this piece after observing that the hype is still in air and she has recently landed on Time’s 100 most influential list….After this I wonder what mainstream media could do and how strongly it effects the thought process of our present world !!

MALALA: A Gem that Dazzled
Malala is not just a name but a strong character, needless of any introduction. But I, as a writer would outline the background for readers to fully understand my article. Malala belongs to Swat Valley, located in the Northwest of Pakistan, was once known as “Switzerland of Pakistan” because of it lush green hills, ice-topped mountains, shimmering lakes and spellbinding beauty. It was the most revenue generating valley from tourism as Malam Jabba in Swat is the only skiing spot in Pakistan. It doesn’t end here and the beauty with spirit runs within its people, who makes this place more welcoming and attractive. Traditions, that are being followed in Swat Society are quite tribunal about their land, culture and their people. They are inclined towards men dominance and often keep their woman for households. People of Swat are physically strong, courageous and audacious. Malala, an exceptional gem of Mingora Swat is a living example, who took a step and stood hard to fight for her rights in a very respectable way. She was exceptionally precise but firm with her views about Taliban and their activities in the name of Islam but almost anti-Islamic. The fight in Swat Valley is a way old traumatic insurgency which started in 1990s, when Sufi Muhammad with his militants declared to impose Shariah through arms and threats for those who resist. The situation entered a turmoil when Pakistani Army interfered to stop undue practices in 2007. Both ends agreed on a peace treaty but it didn’t last long and soon in 2008, the situation was more than worst. Taliban left no rock unturned to impose their rules and ultimately announced a deadline on radio for all girls schools (private or public) to end up till 15th January 2009. Malala with rosy cheeks, sparkling eyes and bright smile felt crippled with this saddening news. At the age of 11, she suffered which no child would ever want to dream about. Corrosive Violence, bloodshed and threats ruined all colors from her childhood. She was isolated in her house which made her lift her pen to pour out her misery and helplessness. Her innocent mind was unaware of the spell, her words would cast across borders. She wrote a diary for BBC in Urdu under a pseudonym “Gul Makkai” about her everyday experiences and fears that sickened her every single moment. As far as I’ve read her blogs, it is more about the undue violence, threats and the ban on girls education. She expressed that she was depressed about her friends and relatives who started migrating to other cities for the sake of their education which her father couldn’t afford. She felt hard about the markets, parks, museums that were once happening are now deserted and demolished. In short, her blogs served enough to stir up curiosity and inquisition within and across borders. On revelation of her original identity, Malala was nominated for An International Children’s Peace Prize and later she was awarded with National Peace Prize (2010) in Pakistan. In her speech, she said, ” Those were the darkest days of my life. She provoked youth to get educated at any cost as she used pen as a sole-medium against barbarism and extremism. She looked confident, determined and ambitious about her future goals. Her unflagging determination and excellence beyond age was a sign of social, political and educational shift in Pakistan.
Her growing fame and engagements on national and international media was an indirect attack on TTP(Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan). On October 9,2012, she was targeted and brutally gunned with two bullets, one is neck and one in head as per reports(………..) . TTP took responsibility of the attack again as per media(…………) .According to TTP, she was a rebel against Islamic Shariah and would be a real threat for young girls in the near future. Unlike (in Pakistan) but fortunately, Malala and her friends got timely treatments which was initially enough to save their lives. Malala who thought to be severely injured was later shifted to Birmingham through air ambulance for further treatments. It is now in report that her progression towards health is speedy.
Amazingly, the story looks as simpler as a fairy tale, Malala as Cinderella was chased by her enemies within her own people but she still made her name which would be written in golden words for ever. But I couldn’t help being a Nancy Drew because there are speculations that require strong evidences. As I mentioned earlier that this part is about what the world watched and accepted but it could be a highly developed plan which is being discussed later in the second part. I strongly disagree with a thought against girls education and all extreme activities in the name of Islam, but it is essentially important to investigate whether they are done by true Muslims or disguised men as Muslims. There is a possibility that a plan is sown to destabilize Pakistan with whatever means fits in best.

Gul Makkai’s Story yet to be unfold!!
It was very suspicious when a name “Abdul Hai Kakkar “flittered around the whole story and the world ignored it because media was purposely ignorant to expose the original character of the story. Abdul Hai Kakkar is a reporter of BBC News Urdu , who thought to showcase the intensity of Taliban edict about forbiddance of girl’s schools. He met Ziauddin Yousafzai in 2008, who runs a chain of schools to request if he could arrange a girl who could narrate him the sufferance in her own words.
“Malala Yousafzai’s father was my friend and he was running a school in the Swat Valley. I talked to him because [I was hoping] he could find a schoolgirl for me. He tried for days and called me back and said nobody was ready to talk because everyone was afraid of the Taliban. But he hesitantly told [me] that if I agreed, then his daughter could work with me. Then I contacted her and started the diary”.
Ziauddin Yousafzai was sharp enough to judge the hype and fame one would get and prepared his own daughter (Malala) to speak over it. Abdul Hai Kakkar in his interview mentioned,
“I talked to her and told her, “You can tell me on [the] telephone what you did that day, what you thought, what were your feelings, and what you saw.” So [I told her] just share with me and I will take notes and then I will write it down. So, from my wife’s telephone number I would call [Malala] because her [my wife’s] phone was safe. So we used to talk to each other for 30 minutes each night for five or seven days [in a row]. Then after that I would send it to BBC English and Urdu to publish”.

It clearly shows that Malala did not write her diary on her own and the fame of her courageous words was partially a self constructed hype. Secondly the intensity drawn in BBC Blogs was not Malala’s own writing, it was written by Abdul Hai Kakkar who might have elicited but smoothing in child’s narrative to give realism. We are all equally responsible who let media play and plug in the power regardless of what conspiracy they hold against under the label Humanitarian Umbrella. I cannot let go Adul Hai Kakkar words in his interview:
This [diary encouraged] … people to hate the Taliban and they unanimously condemned them. All the people are with Malala — I would say 180 million people [Pakistan’s population] are with Malala. So, it [highlights] what she meant for the people. She was a kind of a celebrity for them and they have an attachment with her. She is symbolizing the rights for [girls’] education. She shook the entire country and [only] now the people are debating and talking about how to fix the Taliban, army, and jihadist mindset and the militants.
The words quoted above shows that people try to create situations to infuse hatred for Taliban and to propagate and defame the people of Pakistan. To follow up where is Abdul Hai Kakkar now?? Why is he being cut off as a slice from this flavored cake?? It wasn’t only he who had been working but there are few more like Adam B Ellick who worked on Malala’s documentaries. Where are these people and why aren’t they being taken into custody for investigation?? It reminds me of Raymond Davis who murdered who Pakistani citizens on a busy road and was released easily. The US Embassy also reiterated the same stance – in strong words. “The United States Government once again calls upon the Government of Pakistan to abide by its obligations under international and Pakistani law and immediately release the American diplomat illegally detained in Lahore. The US Embassy reiterated to the Government of Pakistan today that his continued detention is a gross violation of international law.” IS THIS HUMANITY FOR WHICH U.S STANDS FOR?? WHERE IS UNO?? Unfortunately, It looks very easy to work in Pakistan because the government of Pakistan is nothing but a shameless puppet, works for U.S agenda for better aid money and leverages.
The point which requires more of our concentration is what drives agencies like CIA, MI6 and RAW to work in Pakistan and why mainly our northern areas are being targeted?? Have we forgotten that lately German Spies BND were caught dressed in “BLUE PAKHTUN BURKAS”. Smart Choice because no one can stop them or uncover the person for security check even. The first and main reason is that our northern part is tremendously rich and blessed in almost all dimensions. Rich in natural resources, geographically well shaped with defensive high mountainous range and beautiful landscape but these are not the only reasons. Underdeveloped infrastructures, less connectivity and no social or political interference by neighbouring cities are proved to be feasible for outside sources to win their own agendas. Secondly, the people of northern areas are very much similar to white skin and their physical built. The picture below gives a great idea how a foreigner could easily get into our Taliban looks. If one can do it, God knows how many are there fooling around our people in the name of Taliban. People of northern areas are limited to their own language, region and are not socially or politically well aware of the twist and turns. At the same time, they are deprived of worldly pleasures so to earn a little sum of money, they get easily convinced to cooperate regardless of what repercussions the nation would face.

Malala and her father are also seen with Richard Holbrooke, a U.S diplomatic and military former official deputed here in Pakistan to represent Afghanistan and Pakistan. Why?? Why only Malala out of 18 billion people with majority of young girls?? Pakistan have high scores of exceptional talent who write blogs, articles, diaries and have courage to address the world but why only Malala? Why Malala was being saved and other innocents are drone killed?
Coming up to some more serious concerns, Malala was so called shot at a point-blank range in head and neck and was miraculously saved by Pakistani doctors and was later airlifted to Britain for future re-constructive surgeries. But we being fooled cannot digest the fact that Pakistani doctors removed her bullet without shaving her head. HOLD ON!! I still remember my childhood when my mother suffered a brain tumor and she had been shaved for almost every surgery (minor or major). Now take a look at the picture given below, it seemed that the masterminds of the plan were indecisive about her injury.

PROTEST AGAINST U.S DRONE ATTACKS:
Here I want to remind readers that Malala’s attack was right after the protest which Imran Khan, an opposition leader in Pakistan initiated against U.S Drone Attacks. He marched on October 6, 2012 towards South Waziristan with huge number of people from Pakistan and across the world against U.S Drone Attacks. Imran Khan looked confident about having a dialogue with Taliban over their insecurities and affirmations that they need from the government of Pakistan. Thousands of children, youngsters, men and women have been killed for a doubt that U.S have about Taliban in Waziristan. Pakistani government tried its best to remain composed but simultaneously tried their best to stop this march. They involved army to stop them, caused hindrances through container and funniest part was that they said: the water in Waziristan has been poisoned and the people would suffer thirst. U.S and Pakistani government knew that once Imran Khan would meet Taliban, their self created reasons for drone attacks would end up in vain and many serious issues will surface against them. Recently from House of Lords U.K, Lord Nazeer Ahmed, a labor politician stated in a local newspaper “Telegraph” that attack on Malala was a self cooked nasty plan of Pakistani Government to scare people from approaching Taliban for dialogue or negotiations.

ONE WORLD ORDER:
I might look crazy to readers that what am I upto?? But Globalization is not only about licking same flavors but also about chewing same stones. The issue of Occupy Wall Street is fresh and needs constant drilling. The purpose to bring in this issue is to make people realize that the agenda is same for all but the strategy is different to crush 99%. The agenda is to infuse One World Order through making rich richer and poor poorer. In this race, people would transform themselves to anything to remain economically and socially safe regardless of what religion they belong to. If someone resist to this change he or she would automatically be swept in the run. 1% asserts all its power to implement their ways and people adopts it at any cost. To implement this order 1% is on their schedule to condemn or kill people who resists. Stop and look around….and the journey begins from Palestine….Iraq…Afghanistan…Pakistan…..Syria…..Burma…. and the petty crises goes on and on!! unfortunately the leaders that we have are guinea pigs and morons. When we as common men are able to conceive the hidden truths then how can they complain of being unaware. This excuse is a piece of rubbish that nobody could bear.
Are we really unaware of the facts what Angelina Jolie, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Oprah Winfrey were or are part of??? Why don’t they just be in the places like Burma to protect humanity where hundreds of innocents are being killed for no reason then being a Muslim.
CONCLUSION:
Malala as a young courageous girl stood to speak for Swati girls but she was more being manipulated and exploited for bigger gains. No complains for people who do not belong to this region and it is hard for them to understand the originality of the issue but the local anchorperson, hosts, news reporters are well aware of the grounds and still remained silent.
Regardless of being a Pakistani or a Muslim, all these incidents are not logically accepted even if implemented. Hypocrisy would soon be uncovered as drop after drop makes a Big Hole to flush out double standards and hypocrisy which is considered bad not only in Islam but in Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism etc.

Are we heading towards World War III

Have we ever given a thought what are we heading for? Aren’t we suffering from a global war? Why did U.S attack Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq and Yemen? Why is Russian Federation helping U.S to destabilize Syria? And Despite of the fact that Iran has not attacked any country since 1798, why is U.S Government so intent of taking down Iran’s Government? Why is Pakistan so affected in the run?? If we observe the current quirk that we are on, it doesn’t make any sense until we connect the dots and form a line which begun hundreds of years ago. It is nothing but a war of currency in the name of spreading democracy and humanity. If you want to understand what’s exactly happening, we must go through the U.S foreign policy of preserving “Dollars”. In this process, Main Stream Media played an important part in propagating against different projected countries to support the “PETRO DOLLAR SYSTEM” as this was the last option to stop the collapse of flat currency and the only source of U.S dominance.
To begin with, I would like to poke into history to make my readers understand thoroughly that what’s the agenda of the super power to be?? World Reserve Currency is a currency which holds a distinct significance and allows the anchor country to purchase commodities like oil, gold or other natural reserves at marginally lower rates. After World War 2, U.S was deliberately made an anchor country in place of Britain which means that ‘dollar’ was made the world’s reserve currency. The foremost aim was to bring distinct financial uplift as all international commodities would be priced in dollars and the main claws of the agreement was that the dollar would be redeemable at the consistent rate of $35 per ounce. U.S exchanged a huge amount of dollars with gold with a promise not to print much money but at the same time FEDERAL RESERVE did not allow any audit or accountability on their printing press which kept many countries in betrayal. In the era of 1970, it became very obvious during Vietnam War that U.S have printed far more money than the gold reserve. In response to this act, countries started asking for their gold back which of course set off a rapid decline in the value of dollars. In 1971, the political ties between U.S and France heated up and France declared to withdraw its gold back but Nixon, the U.S President refused. On August 15th, Richard Nixon made an important announcement saying that the U.S would defend dollars against the speculators and directed treasury to temporarily suspend any exchange or convertibility of dollars until and unless it supports the best interest of United States.
On the Contrary, it was not a temporary suspension as said but a permanent fall if happened. To overcome this threat, in 1973, Nixon signed an agreement with King Faisal that Saudi will sell its oil in dollars only and asked King Faisal to invest excess profits in U.S treasury bonds, notes and bills. In return, U.S promised to provide military protection to Saudi Oilfields. This offer was extended to all oil producing countries within 2 years and every country agreed upon the given offer by 1975. Finally ‘dollars’ gained its lost value back and to maintain its security, U.S bounded every country to maintain a constant supply of Federal Reserve paper and in order to get that paper they had to send real feasible goods to America. In short whatever America needed, certainly came. This was the original beginning of the “Petro Dollar System”. This was the biggest financial con in the recorded history. Furthermore, the arms trade in cold war was another trick in poker. U.S was ready with an enormous stack of chips in exchange of military expenditure. The dollar was already in good position and U.S took good use of it by raising taxes as much as possible to spin other countries in the run. This move was made until U.S military expenditures went beyond all the other nations combined. Soviet Union never had the chance to manage or freeze the collapse of communist bloc in 1991 and thus U.S became the only undisputed superpower with no rivals. It gave an idea that the world would now have peace and stability but it was just not the real agenda of the string holders. The world got a shocking breakthrough when U.S attacked and invaded Iraq within the same year in 1991. U.S badly crushed the Iraqi military system, water purification system, hospitals and infra structure. U.S left no part untouched and more to add in terror, U.S resisted in rebuilding infrastructures by imposing crippling sanctions which lasted for over a decade. In one of the T.V talk show, Albright (Secretary of State for Clinton) answered on a question: Was it worth killing half a million children in Iraq? She answered: “I think this is a very hard choice, But we think, the price is worth it”. In 2000, Iraq in retaliation started selling its oil in Euros. This was taken as a direct attack on the stability of dollars and U.S re invaded Iraq in 2003 in the name of War against terror and soon after invasion the oil prices were immediately switched back to dollars though it cost them a huge currency difference and a loss of about 15% to 20% revenue because of Euro’s higher market price but U.S left no chance unshaken. This switching does not make any sense at all until we take PETRO DOLLAR SYSTEM into account. In the middle of Iraq invasions, U.S plotted the game plan of 9/11 in 2001 and captured sympathy through mainstream media. This was all to intervene in other countries like Pakistan and Afghanistan for tracing Al-Qaeda. Have we ever thought why?? Why have we being treated differently?? It’s only because Pakistan holds the world’s competent army, a nuclear power and a sound relationship with its neighbour China. But we are still facing numerous issues that are being infused to demoralize its stability and strength. Pakistan is rich in Copper, Gold, Titanium and other natural reserves. The string holders are trying its best to capture reserves from different countries to implement one world order to rule till its end.
In an interview on March 2nd, 2007, General Weslay Clark said, I asked higher authorities, “Are we still going to war with Iraq when we are already bombing in Afghanistan? And (Bush) He replied, Oh it’s worse than that. Clark showed a piece of paper, “This is a memo that describes how we are going to take over 7 countries in 5 years, starting with Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and finishing of Iran. If we stop and take a look over at the past decade, we can easily see these statements apparent.
Moving to the next chapter, In Libya, Qaddafi tried to organize and unite some blocks of African Countries to create ‘Dinars’ as the base currency. The purpose was to replace Dollars by Dinars in that specific region initially. Therefore, in 2011, U.S and NATO took some serious attempts to topple down Libyan Government and took control over the region. If we look at the current situation of U.S versus Iran, Iran kept on campaigning actively against the poor rates of oil and to set off dollars as the exchange currency. It recently surfaced that Iran made some agreements for selling its oil in exchange of gold. In response to this U.S is trying its best to take over Iranian government with the help of main stream media in pretext of building nuclear weapon. U.S put sanctions to collapse Iran’s economy but didn’t succeed till date. In the mean time, U.S tried to win Syria which is Iran’s closest ally and they both have mutual defense agreements. But Russia and China warned U.S, not to get involved as they would not let any intervention unnoticed because Iran and Syria are the only independent oil supplying countries in this region. If U.S occupies it, China and Russia will be left with no other choice to escape from dollar dominance. In spite of all warnings, U.S is pushing forward to strike Syria and Iran and NATO’s coward actions are still going on in Syria in the name of Shia-Sunni Fight. Those who controls United States know that if any of the oil producing country begins to sell its oil in another currency would set off a chain reaction and that would be the start of dollar declination. To secure it, U.S and NATO forces are trying its best to invade all oil supplying countries as we can observe that they are in constant game of intervention and destabilizing other countries as if they are playing a calculated gamble.
After going through the past and the current trajectory we could easily conclude that we are heading towards the unthinkable and we might pay the unimaginable cost of preserving dollars which was mapped up hundreds of years ago with the consciousness of the human consequences but who cares??? Have we ever thought that who have diverted us to a global conflict which have already taken millions of lives and us, the living ones are at stake??? Was it all done to preserve paper currency for dominance?? this is very clear that Obama, Bush or Clinton were all being asked to run the system as per plan made years n years ago. Then who’s pulling the strings?? The best answers to this question are often hidden in another question who’s the beneficiary?? If we go straight to the point we could see that the beneficiary is none but those who have the right or power to print dollars. FEDERAL RESERVE BANK is a private entity which is generally thought to be owned by U.S government. It is very simple to understand that we are being fooled and ruled by some private entities. They want to recreate this world with elites to live further…Let’s see what more to come!!
