Most people think of roses and romance when it comes to Valentine's Day. Historians may recall bullets and bad guys from the original Saint Valentine's Day massacre from Al Capone's Chicago in 1929. Few recall, however, the $600 million loss suffered by George Soros in 2004. Soros was labeled by the Chinese PLA Colonels who authored Unrestricted Warfare as a "financial terrorist." He has been labeled the man "who broke the bank of England," has been convicted of insider trading, and was accused of destroying Asian economies in the late 1990s.
Here's what the PLA Colonels said about him in Unrestricted Warfare:
"We believe that before long, "financial warfare" will undoubtedly be an entry in the various types of dictionaries of official military jargon. Moreover, when people revise the history books on twentieth-century warfare in the early 21st century, the section on financial warfare will command the reader's utmost attention. The main protagonist in this section of the history book will not be a military strategist; rather it will be George Soros. (page 41)."
"Judging by this kind of standard, who can say that George Soros is not a financial terrorist? (page 36)"
More recently, George Soros has been connected to a hedge fund attack on Greece that predates the worst of the current turmoil. The original Wall Street Journal article appeared in February 2010 and at that time, the Euro was reasonably stable although under pressure. Only after hedge funds began piling on did the matter become outrageous as demonstrated by the Credit Default Swap rates. Others agree that this was a "financial warfare" attack: http://tarpley.net/2010/03/04/financial-warfare-exposed-soros-goldman-sachs-hedge-funds-attack-greece-to-smash-euro/
It is important to note that George Soros himself said that it was a combination of unlimited short selling and Credit Default Swap speculation in bear raids that brought down Lehman Brothers and caused the 2008-09 economic collapse. Then, less than a year later his firm is advocating similar bear raids against Greece and the European Union? Is there any wonder that European spy agencies were warning against speculators acting as financial terrorists? Or that Germany advocating the banning of credit default swaps (CDS) and naked short selling?
One of the most important bottom line results is that financial terrorism can lead to violence. We are seeing this play out in Greece right now. Recently, George Soros has been warning that the Occupy Wall Street crowds will also turn violent–bringing serious turmoil and upheaval to America. We will be posting soon on how the OWS movement is right that there are serious problems on Wall Street. They may not have identified all the true culprits, however. Wall Street greed has made America more vulnerable to financial terrorism. What Soros is really saying is that the same troubles in Greece are coming here. In his view, it is only a matter of time. It is interesting to note that there are many ties between OWS funding and Mr. Soros.
The main difference between Greece and the United States is that we pay our debts with the world's primary reserve currency. Like Greece, we have unsustainable debt and budget deficits. But, we get to pay back in dollars and the world has to take them. Is George Soros warning otherwise when he speaks of OWS turning violent like Greece? We suspect that is exactly what he is saying and he should know. The dollar will be under attack soon. We call this Phase Three and it is happening before our eyes.

George Soros is credited as the world's best preeminent financial terrorist by the PLA. He has been responsible for overseeing the destruction of the British pound and the Bank of England. He has been convicted of insider trading and unsuccessful in overturning the conviction. He was accused of destroying the Asian Tigers in the 1990s. He acknowledges that it was a bear raid that destroyed Lehman and toppled the financial markets using short selling and credit default swaps. His firm hosted an "idea dinner" to make hedge funds aware of vulnerabilities in Europe, especially Greece, basically encouraging bear raids. The Greeks and Germans blame speculators like Soros using shorting and CDS to cause the turmoil that has turned into rioting. Soros has been tied to funding for OWS and now predicts it will turn violent. What else does he know? Is he aware, for example, that there is a bear raid of massive proportions coming against the U.S. dollar and America's sovereign credit? We believe he is aware. That is Phase Three as identified in our initial report to DoD and explained in detail in our book, Secret Weapon (www.secretweapon.org). Or, check out the older posts from this Blog, focusing on the Phase Three evidence.
Few remember the 1994 Saint Valentine's Day massacre where the "bloodbath" was financial and Soros lost $600 million. More remember the 1929 violent version featuring Al Capone that preceded an American collapse and the Great Depression which led to World War II. George Soros, no doubt remembers both. Let's hope that a Soros reversal of the 1994 version doesn't lead to the 1929 version as Soros seems to be predicting.
