ilderberg expects interest rates to rise and many
Americans to lose their homes in the months ahead. Meanwhile, they
hope they can pressure President Bush to refrain from an all-out
invasion of Iran while maintaining oil prices at their current
record-high levels of about $70 a barrel.
Timothy Geithner, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York,
predicted rising interest rates and difficulties for families that
have obtained adjustable rate mortgages, or “variable” interest
rates. Many are likely to lose their homes as rising home mortgage
rates add hundreds of dollars to their monthly payments, he said.
While most listened solemnly and some expressed concern, one was
heard to say, “stupid Americans deserve their fate.”
Many Americans, especially young families, have
been buying expensive homes at low but “variable” interest rates.
Others have been paying just the interest owed on their homes and
not the principal. They are the most vulnerable, Geithner said. Some
have paid little or nothing down. Some institutions “lend” buyers
the down payment.
When home construction peaks and prices start downward, many will
find they owe more on their home than it is worth in the
marketplace. They will also find their mortgage—even “interest-only”
The banks will get the homes back and sell them again.
Again, the term “stupid Americans” was heard among clucks of
sympathy or silent indifference. According to one source, no concern
was expressed by Allan Hubbard, assistant to President Bush for
European Bilderbergers said they would have no part in an invasion
of Iran, something Bush says is an “option on the table.” Although
NATO is helping by adding 9,000 troops in Afghanistan, expect no
help if Iran is invaded, they said. “We will not help you fight a
war for Israel,” one said.
Several noted that Israel has had nuclear weapons since at least
1963 and has never signed on to the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty,
so no international inspections are conducted. It was the late
George Ball, a charter member of Bilderberg who was No. 2 man in the
State Department under presidents John Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson,
who first revealed that Israel has nuclear weapons.
“Is it not reasonable that Iran would need such a deterrence against
Israel?” an unidentified Bilderberger was heard saying. “If you
invade Iran, Israel is your only ally and good luck.” One suggested
that “surgical strikes”—but no land invasion—may be tolerated but
others said they would be ineffective.
Listeners to this dialogue included Eival Gildy of Israel, head of
“coordination and strategy in the office of the prime minister,” and
Ziad Abu Amr, member of the Palestinian Legislative Council,
president of the Palestinian Council on Foreign Relations and
professor of political science at Birzeit University. Ahmad Chalabi,
former deputy prime minister of Iraq and one of the key sources of
disinformation about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction, was also
William Luti, special assistant to Bush for defense policy, and
Richard Perle, former high Defense Department official and still a
close adviser to Bush, responded that the United States is simply
trying to stop the spread of nuclear weapons and make the world
“safe.” But, said one European: “How ‘safe’ do you think the world
will be if you invade Iran and Iran responds by firing missiles on
your ally, Israel? Israel will nuke Iran in response and you will
have your ‘proliferation.’”
Robert Zoellick, deputy secretary of state, said it would be
necessary to keep the invasion “option” to pressure Iran into
agreeing to abandon its nuclear weapons program.
“You’re wrong,” the European answered. “Iran simply refuses to be
bullied by the United States. Save us a lot of trouble and forget
about invading Iran.” The Americans remained silent.
Bilderberg’s mood was described as “uneasy” when it came to the
issue of oil, a discussion followed closely by such oil-rich
participants as banker David Rockefeller, Queen Beatrix of the
Netherlands and Franco Bernabe, vice chairman of Rothschild Europe.
The “Latin American problem” mixed the issue of oil with
Bilderberg’s scheme to expand NAFTA throughout the Western
Hemisphere and have it evolve into an “American Union” patterned
after the European Union. Hugo Chavez, head of Venezuela, is not
only raising taxes on the extraction
of oil from his country, he is trying to establish a trade coalition
with neighboring nations that would block the expansion of NAFTA by
creating the Free Trade Area of the Americas.
Bilderberg’s consensus seemed to be to not force higher oil prices
at the moment, but be content with the immense profits enjoyed now.
Chavez’s barrier to NAFTA expansion leaves them moody because
establishing an “American Union” is a critical step toward
Bilderberg’s goal of establishing the United Nations as a world
