Jerry Robinson begins this week's program with a commentary on the recent shocking exchange between U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions. If you have not yet seen this exchange, you can watch the video below.
Jerry continues with a discussion of his latest article, The Petrodollar Wars: The Iraq-Petrodollar Connection. In the article, Jerry explains in detail the connection between the 2003 Iraq War and the Petrodollar system. In addition, he provides an interesting scenario of what a collapse of the petrodollar system would look like in America.
In Segment Two, Jerry is joined by popular trends watcher, Gerald Celente. Gerald is the publisher of the Trends Journal.
Topics include: The build-up to war in Syria and Iran and what it means to you.
We also discuss an interesting solution to the Iranian problem: Thorium. According to Gerald, thorium offers a potential replacement to the the more harmful, and politically sensitive, uranium.
