World Wide Depression Feared as United States Losses Nears 2 Trillion US Dollars, Global Oil Markets in Chaos and US Military Leaders Prepare to Seal Borders

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Russian Subscribers

Russian Financial Experts are reporting today that the losses to the United States economy due to their catastrophic storm damage is now over $500 Billion dollars, and will soon approach, on a world-level, over $2 Trillion.  These unprecedented amounts are also being echoed by Western Media reports, and as we can read as reported by the New York Times News Service in their article titled "First Estimate Puts Storm's Economic Toll at $100 Billion" and which says;

"A risk management firm yesterday offered the first estimate of economic losses from Hurricane Katrina - $100 billion - and said that private insurance would probably cover less than a quarter of that. Federal money and charitable contributions may need to do the rest.  Saying the damage already appeared far greater than expected, Risk Management Solutions in Newark, Calif., said that insured losses would range from $20 billion to $35 billion, much higher than the firm's initial estimate of $10 billion to $25 billion.

The new figures suggest that Hurricane Katrina will cost the insurance industry more than any other natural disaster on record, unseating Hurricane Andrew in 1992, which cost $21 billion in 2004 dollars, according to the Insurance Information Institute, an industry group. Katrina's price tag may also overshadow the $23 billion in insured losses caused by four large hurricanes last year in South Florida.

But there is far more that commercial insurers will not absorb. Uninsured losses often include damage to roads, highways, utilities and public buildings, as well as the cost of government relief efforts. There is also the huge cost of not doing business, which the firm estimated at $100 million a day.The many homeowners who lack flood insurance - including 6 of 10 homeowners in New Orleans, according to federal data - will most likely be applying for aid. "I think what makes this one different is just the sheer scope and size of it," said Ray Stone, vice president for catastrophe operations at St. Paul Travelers, which has one of the largest shares of customers in Louisiana. "It's just going to be a much, much longer haul." Risk Management Solutions estimated that the flood in New Orleans had inundated 150,000 properties, making it the most damaging flood in the nation's history."

As American oil reserves have fallen by over 17% since 1990, according to their Department of Energy statistics, the loss of Louisiana’s reserves, which total about one quarter of the United States total reserves (22%), coupled with the devastation wrecked upon the Gulf of Mexico production facilities, have resulted in such catastrophic shortfalls that the Strategic Reserves of both the European Union and Japan are having to be drawn upon, and as we can read from these reports:

From the British Sunday Times News Service in their article titled "Europe to send emergency oil to US to ease crisis" and which says, "Europe will dip into its emergency stocks of gasoline to help the United States through an energy crisis that began when Hurricane Katrina smashed into Gulf coast refiners, EU governments said yesterday. France, Germany, Spain and Italy said they were ready to send fuel across the Atlantic in an operation coordinated by the West's energy watchdog, the International Energy Agency. A US government official confirmed Washington had asked for help and said most of the gasoline would come from Europe."

From the Japan Today News Service in their article titled "Japan to release oil stockpile equal to 12% of IEA's planned release" and which says, "Japan will free part of its private-sector oil stockpile at an amount equal to 12% of the International Energy Agency's planned release of 60 million barrels following Hurricane Katrina, government officials said Saturday. Japan last tapped its oil stockpile in 1991 during the Gulf War as part of world efforts to curb soaring oil prices. The timing of the release of the oil will be decided in view of similar moves by other IEA members, the officials said, adding it could be in the next week at the earliest."

To the almost complete destruction of the United States Southern Regions oil production capability we can read in these reports:

From the Itar-Tass News Service in their article titled "Hurricane Katrina ruins 58 oilrigs in Gulf of Mexico" and which says, "Hurricane Katrina ruined 58 oilrigs in the Gulf of Mexico, a representative of the American Petroleum Institute said on Friday. He said 30 oilrigs could not be restored. Apache Oil Company, which announced the loss of eight oilrigs producing about 7,200 barrels of oil and 12.1 million cubic meters of gas a day, suffered large damages. American experts said that total losses in the oil production have amounted to daily 7.44 barrels since August 26. The Gulf of Mexico was supplying up to 30% of all U.S. crude and one-fourth of natural gas to the American market."

From the Associated Press News Service in their article titled "90 percent of Gulf of Mexico oil production blocked" and which says, "Ninety percent of the Gulf of Mexico's normal daily oil production is blocked from market today because of offshore platform evacuations forced by Hurricane Katrina. The U-S Minerals Management Service said 423 of the 819 staffed production platforms in the Gulf are shut down, delaying production of one-point-36 (m) million barrels of oil, or 90-point-four percent of the region's normal daily production of one-point-five (m) million barrels."

Also according to these reports, the greatest concerns facing the American Military Leaders is not to the saving of peoples lives, but has been instead to the saving of their entire countries economy and way of life, that is except for their elite citizens, and as we can read as reported by the NBC News Service in their article titled "Superdome evacuation halted" and which shockingly says: "At one point Friday, the evacuation was interrupted briefly when school buses rolled up so some 700 guests and employees from the Hyatt Hotel could move to the head of the evacuation line — much to the amazement of those who had been crammed in the stinking Superdome since last Sunday."

Even more appalling that these actions of these American Military Leaders was their continuing their plans for the total ‘Lockdown’ of their citizens during this crises, and as we can read as reported by the San Francisco Chronicle News Service in their article titled "Bush stands firm on requiring passports; U.S. citizens will need to present them when returning from Canada, Mexico" and which says, "The Bush administration announced Thursday that it is sticking with its controversial plan to require Americans to show their passports when entering the United States from neighboring Canada and Mexico."

No longer do these Americans ever have to speculate as to what it is like to live under a Fascist Military Regime as their newspapers, radios and televisions are filled with the sounds and images of what life is truly like under Military rule.  Where once these great American people were the ‘Saviors’ of not only their own fellow countrymen during times of disaster, they were also the Saviors of the world, but which under their Military Leaders are not even wanted anymore, and as we can read from their own Federal Emergency Management Authority in their directive titled “First Responders Urged Not To Respond To Hurricane Impact Areas Unless Dispatched By State, Local Authorities" and which says:

"Michael D. Brown, Under Secretary of Homeland Security for Emergency Preparedness and Response and head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), today urged all fire and emergency services departments not to respond to counties and states affected by Hurricane Katrina without being requested and lawfully dispatched by state and local authorities under mutual aid agreements and the Emergency Management Assistance Compact. “The response to Hurricane Katrina must be well coordinated between federal, state and local officials to most effectively protect life and property,” Brown said. “We appreciate the willingness and generosity of our Nation’s first responders to deploy during disasters. But such efforts must be coordinated so that fire-rescue efforts are the most effective possible.”

This order from their Military Leaders to their citizens to ‘NOT RESPOND’ defies explanation… can only liken the brutality of such Military Leaders as these to those produced under the Nazi Germany and Soviet Communist Regimes, where common sense and human compassion were senselessly slaughtered upon the alter of Total State Control.

But sadly these American, these once great people, are not fighting to defend their weakest citizens, leading one to wonder what their reactions would be if the masses of their refugees were white skinned, and to which their Military Leaders were quick to remove from New Orleans as we previously evidenced.  But instead of defending others they are instead crying to their Military Leaders for more Military control, and as we can read as reported by the Guardian Unlimited News Service in their article titled "Criticism of Bush mounts amid chaos" and which says:

"United States President George Bush arrived on Friday night in the ravaged Gulf Coast region amid mounting criticism of his handling of the crisis and a prediction by one senator that the death toll in Louisiana alone could top 10 000 people. As thousands of people sat on the streets of New Orleans, having spent their fourth day waiting to be rescued, the city fell deeper into chaos, with gangs roaming the city and corpses rotting in the sun. Kathleen Blanco, the Democrat Governor of Louisiana, threatened looters with a shoot-to-kill policy.

"These troops are battle-tested. They have M16s and are locked and loaded," she said. "These troops know how to shoot and kill, and I expect they will." Plumes of thick black smoke rose after an explosion rocked an industrial area hit hard by Katrina, and an apartment complex in the city centre was also in flames. The explosion was later said to have taken place in a chemical storage facility. Stunned residents stumbled around bodies that lay rotting and untouched. Others trudged along flooded and debris-strewn streets toward the Superdome football stadium where they hoped to be bussed to safety. Calling for the immediate deployment of regular combat troops in New Orleans, David Vitter, a Louisiana Republican senator, said: "My guess is that it [the death toll] will start at 10 000, but that is only a guess."

Today hundreds of thousands of starving and homeless refugees roam the American Heartland, but as the world has seen from countless examples throughout history of those living under Fascist Military Rule, these Americans have totally subjugated themselves to believing that their solutions lie in giving money to their elites and trusting in their Military to restore and keep order.  It is almost as if these strange people have forgotten what their country was founded for in the first place and the words of warning passed on to them from their First President, George Washington, and who had warned them:

"Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master."

Today the world watches in horror as this ‘Fearful Master’ shows its true face.
