The Shape of Things To Come
Rixon Stewart – November 2001
“War is not far from us now. A new arms race has started to develop.” Liu Jing, Peoples Liberation Army strategist writing in China Military Science recently.
They say history repeats itself and there is an uncanny similarity between what happened over 70 years ago and more recent developments. In the late nineteen twenties Germany was a spent force economically, politically and militarily; defeated a decade earlier and racked by political dissent and economic depression it posed no threat to anyone, or so it appeared. Twelve years later though a revitalised Germany was ready to take on the world.
Backed by Wall Street the German industrial base was rebuilt so that when the Nazis came to power in 1933 they were, in terms of economic and industrial capacity, a few short steps away from being able to wage total war. A combination of U.S. oil, pharmaceutical and military supply interests joined with Wall Street banking to finance the restructuring of Germany’s industries. Wall Street also helped create the I.G. Farben conglomerate; involved in the production of synthetic gasoline and explosives, both essential in any modern war, I.G. Farben was engaged in a range of activities that were crucial to Germany’s war effort. Indeed it’s no exaggeration to say that I.G. Farben was Hitler’s war machine and that it was largely created with the covert aid of U.S. banking elites: the Rockerfeller’s, the Harriman’s, the Du Pont’s and J.P. Morgan. (1)
Whilst the Harriman’s did not directly finance Hitler they were intimately connected with the Nazi front bank, the Bank voor Handel en Scheepvaardt. A key figure in this liaison was Prescott Bush, (2) a managing partner at Brown Brothers Harriman and a long time associate with the firm. Today his grandson, George W. Bush, sits in the White House whilst the same process repeats itself. The same configuration of oil, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, military supply and banking is again reflected in George W. Bush’s staff and cabinet. George W. himself has a solid background in the oil industry whilst Vice President Dick Cheney came to the administration from Haliburton, a leading recipient of government contracts in supplying military equipment and oil services. There is however one critical difference between what’s happening now and the events in Europe in the 20’s and 30’s; today it’s not the Nazi military industrial complex that’s being rebuilt but the Russian and Chinese military behemoths that are being revitalised. And while all this is happening both the Russians and the Chinese are following an age-old military doctrine first laid out by Sun Tzu in his treatise The Art of War.
Around 500 BC Sun Tzu advised aspiring warlords and conquerors on the benefits of “feigning weakness”: so as to disarm opponents and take them by surprise. It’s a lesson the Russians and Chinese seemed to have learned well…
PANIC ON DECK
Their appearance was as dramatic as it was unexpected. They came without warning and left in their wake a trail of confusion and shock. The Russian SU-27 and its reconnaissance escort flew in tandem, flying low and fast, exactly as if they had been on a strike mission. Their target was the prized centrepiece of the US Seventh Fleet in the Sea of Japan, the USS Kitty Hawk. Somehow, through a combination of skill and daring they evaded the radars and look-outs of an entire naval Battle-group to swoop past the aircraft carrier at its centre. If this had been for real the Kitty Hawk would have been sunk or the planes shot down; but the planes were not shot down because the Battle-fleet was taken completely by surprise, moreover this happened not just once but three times in late October and November last year. Then, as if to add insult to injury, the Russians emailed photos to the Pentagon taken by their planes as they buzzed the Kitty Hawk.
Interfax quoted Russian naval spokesman Anatoly Kornukov as saying the buzzing of the USS Kitty Hawk had been a “planned operation... Our jets' appearance was a big surprise for Americans," Kornukov said. “The photos clearly show the panic on the carrier's deck.”
In response embarrassed Pentagon spokesmen tried to minimize the incidents significance and the fact that the Seventh Fleet was caught completely off guard. Thirty years ago it would have been enough to push the world to brink of all out war. So maybe it’s a measure of how far the Cold War tensions have eased but today the whole incident hardly made the front page. In fact those papers that did report it gave it only a passing mention on the inside pages, if that.

Yet this was more than the daredevil antics of a few Russian pilots, much more. Quietly and deliberately the Russian and Chinese military machines are being rebuilt and readied, or in the words of Russia’s naval commander Adm. Vladimir Kuroyedov: “It is time for our ships to move away from the pier.” This in spite of reports, from various official Russian spokesmen and dutifully carried by the Western media, that the Russian navy is so beleaguered and decrepit that it cannot even combat poachers. In the month following the feigned attack on The Kitty Hawk the Russian navy delivered the first of two 7,300-ton Sovremenny destroyers to China. Armed with powerful cruise missiles capable of packing a nuclear sized punch the Sovremenny (Russian for “contemporary”) is considered a serious threat by Western analysts and comes as part of a billion dollar Sino Russian military deal. The deal which includes helicopters, SU-27 aircraft, Kilo class submarines and SS-N-22 Sunburn cruise missiles, is only part of the growing military cooperation between the two countries. In October last year the two nations embarked on their first ever joint naval exercises in an alliance that is expected to be formally ratified when Putin visits Beijing later this year.
It’s not only the Russians who are supplying China with state of the art technology; the Americans are too. In fact in terms of technological know how the U.S. has become a virtual bargain basement for the Chinese with secrets and classified information being given away at rock bottom prices. In a recent example a top weapons research centre, Los Alamos National Laboratory, appointed Taiwanese born Wen Ho Lee to lead a sensitive nuclear weapons program. According to several senior government officials quoted by Reuters, his appointment was finalised whilst he was being investigated by the F.B.I. as a suspected spy for China. This along with other incidents in the so-called Chinagate scandal prompted the U.S. Government to launch an investigative committee that published its findings in the Cox Report. Significantly only an edited version of the Report was made public but according to one senior Congressional aide who had seen the unedited version:
“There was a pattern of clear and consistent White House involvement in the transfer of sensitive technology to China. The pattern shows, at best, a White House that was incompetent and, at worst, complicit in the loss of U.S. secrets.” (3)
It’s not just the White House that is involved in the transfer of sensitive strategic technologies to China. With its eyes ever focused on increased profits big business has been too; Hughes Electronics Corp. and Loral Space and Electronics Ltd. have both helped China improve its military rockets and ballistic systems while Lockheed Martin recently paid a $13 million settlement to the U.S. Government for passing secret satellite technology onto China. In the light of Lockheed Martin’s profits, which amount to billions, a $13 million fine is a mere slap on the wrist and well worth paying in view of the huge profit potential latent in China.
The Russians have also been the recipients of sensitive Western military technology. In 1995, McDonnell Douglas successfully lobbied to buy a Russian “Krypton” missile with the intention of using it as a supersonic target for U.S. Navy warships. However the “Krypton” supplied to the Americans lacked crucial radar and guidance systems; in the words of one Russian defence source it was little more than a “hollow target shell”(4).
So what did the Americans do?
Well U.S. Navy and defence contractors kindly assisted Russian missile engineers in testing and improving the missile. One “improvement” resulted in the Krypton’s range being increased from an ineffective 15 miles to more than 40 miles. (5)
In fact you’d almost think that the Americans wanted to resurrect their old adversaries from the Cold War. Insight magazine recently disclosed that the Clinton administration had suppressed warnings from its own officials and a top Russian scientist that Moscow was diverting disarmament aid to fund covert biological-weapons programs. The magazine obtained hundreds of internal documents some of which showed that officials who raised concerns about this were pushed out of policy-making positions; whilst other documents, revealed how senior political appointees either ignored or blocked warnings that Russia was using U.S. aid to develop new biological weapons. The weapons in question were said to create a deadly new form of measles with AIDS-like symptoms (6).
It doesn’t end there though. On April 16, 1996, the New York Times reported on the construction of a mysterious military base in Russia: “In a secret project reminiscent of the chilliest days of the Cold War, Russia is building a mammoth underground military complex in the Ural Mountains,” said the report, adding that witnesses claimed that: “the project involved the creation of a huge complex, served by a railroad, a highway, and thousands of workers.” According to the Federation of American Scientists the vast complex is said to cover literally hundreds of square miles and is still growing (7). Satellite photographs show continued digging but according to one senior Washington official… “the Russians are not very interested in having us go in there.”
Which begs the question: what exactly does this all portend?
Despite protestations to the contrary both Russia and China have embarked on an extensive overhaul of their armed forces; Russian expenditure on military research and development alone is expected to increase by 43% this year (8). Hardly what one would expect from a nation that the popular press continue to portray as a moribund military power.
All of which suitably sets the scene for the predictions of one Alois Irlmaier. Normally we would prefer to avoid prophecies, not because we don’t believe in them, but simply because nothing is written in stone. In the words of Lee Brown, talking at the Continental Indigenous Council in Fairbanks, Alaska in 1986: “Prophecies are always either/or.” In other words we have the power of choice and through our choices we shape our destiny, both as individuals and as nations and peoples. The cumulative result of all this is what some would call Karma; it’s not fixed but fluid, like a current in a stream, and subject to change as are our decisions.
Which may explain why some predictions made hundreds of years ago haven’t quite materialised as expected. The choices made since then have altered what would have happened had a certain course been followed, and here it should be mentioned that some individuals have the ability to see where a particular path or course of action could ultimately lead. One such was Alois Irlmaier who, unlike Jean Dixon or Nostradamus, remains relatively unknown outside of his native Germany. A simple, devout Christian he was interviewed by writer Conrad Adlmaier in the 50’s and what he said assumes an ominous new significance, particularly in the light of recent developments. In essence he saw the approach of another world war; Irlmaier’s words are in italic whilst this writer's comments are in plain text.
Asked what causes the war, he responded:
“Everything calls peace. Schalom! Then it will occur -- a new Middle East war suddenly flares up, big naval forces are facing hostility in the Mediterranean -- the situation is strained. But the actual firing spark is set on fire in the Balkans: I see a “large one” falling, a bloody dagger lies beside him --then impact is on impact …”
“Two men kill a third high-ranked. They were paid by other people… One of the murderers is a small black man, the other a little bit taller, with bright-coloured hair. I think it will be at the Balkans, but I cannot say it exactly…”
In the midst of peace negotiations a murder occurs which triggers a much wider conflict, Irlmaier continues:
“…After the murder of the third it starts overnight… I see quite clearly three numbers, two eights and a nine. But I cannot say what it means and cannot state a time. The war begins at sunrise. He comes along very rapidly. The farmers sit in the pub playing cards, when the foreign soldiers look through the windows and doors. Quite black, an army comes from the east, but however everything occurs very rapidly. I see a three, but I do not know if it means three days or three weeks.”
The “two eights and a nine” referred to could be 08,09,2008 or 09,08,2008 or 08,08,2009
“Massed units march from the East into Belgrade and moved forward into Italy. Thereafter three armoured wedges immediately advance with lightening speed in the north of the Danube over West Germany towards the Rhine – without preliminary warning. This will occur so unexpectedly that the population flees full of panic to the west. Many cars clog the roads – if they had stayed at home or …not used the main streets. Everything, which will be an obstacle for the rapidly advancing tanks on high-speed motorways and other fast motorways, will be down-rolled. I cannot see the Danube bridges above Regensburg anymore. Hardly anything remains of the big city Frankfurt… The Rhine Valley will be devastated, mainly by air…”
Note the reference to “high-speed motorways,” which Irlmaier made in the early fifties, long before Europe’s system of autobahns and modern roadways was in place. And can’t you just see the traffic congestion as hordes of people try to escape the invading armies; or the invading armies advancing along the autobahn’s and clearing pathways for themselves as abandoned vehicles are “down-rolled” from the raised motorways?
“I see three spearheads coming…The Russian does not stop anywhere, while running in his three wedges. Day and night they run in order to reach the Ruhr-district, where the many furnaces and fireplaces are… Day and night the Russians run, inexorably their target is the Ruhr-district…”
As we’ve said, history has a tendency to repeat itself and what Irlmaier speaks of is not without precedent. It happened with Napoleon in 1812, when the Russians rose from the brink of defeat to push Napoleon back to France in a retreat that reduced his army from hundreds of thousands to a few hundred. Again in World War II the Russians turned from the brink of defeat at Stalingrad and drove Hitler’s army all the way back to Berlin. In both cases the Russians seemed to draw on hidden reserves when their opponents were ready to write them off. It’s almost part of the national character so when when Putin bemoans the state of Russia’s military it’s as well to be wary; like a skilled card sharp he may just have a trick or two up his sleeve.
AN AMERICAN COUNTER-ATTACK
In response the Americans launch a counter attack.
“…Immediately the revenge comes from across the large water. However the yellow dragon invades in Alaska and Canada at the same time. But he comes not far…”
Simultaneously the Chinese launch an attack on North America, an attack which is not, however, entirely successful. This in turn is followed by the introduction of strange new weapons, in an effort to thwart the Russian advances and halt the armoured columns.
“…And then it rains a yellow dust in a line. When the golden city is destroyed, it begins. Like a yellow line it goes up to the city in the bay. It will be a clear night, when they begin to throw it. The tanks are still driving, but those who sit in theses tanks become quite black. Where it falls down, everything will become quite dead, no tree, no bush, no cattle, no grass, this becomes withered and black. The houses still exist. I don’t know what it is and so I cannot tell it. It is a long line. Who goes over this line, dies…Then everything in the spearheads breaks down…Nobody will come back anymore…
“…The airplanes drop a yellow powder between the Black Sea and the North Sea. Thus a death strip is created, straight from the Black Sea to the North Sea, as wide as half of Bavaria. In this zone no grass can grow let alone humans live. The Russian supply is interrupted.
“…From the east there are many caterpillars. But in the caterpillars everybody is already dead, although the vehicles keep rolling on, in order to gradually stop automatic… At the Rhine the attack is finally repelled. From the three spearheads no soldier will come home anymore…”
[PICTURE: A Russian multi role SU-47, insiders say its performance capabilities are likely to shock the west]
Irlmaier gives a further description of this new and devastating weapon:
“…the pilots throw off their small black boxes. They do explode, before they touch the soil, and spread a yellow or green smoke or dust. What comes into contact with this becomes dead, whether it is human, animal or plant. For one year no organism is allowed to enter this area, otherwise it will expose itself to the largest mortal danger….
“These boxes are satanic. When they explode, a yellow or green dust or smoke arises, everything that comes in contact to it, is dead…The humans becomes quite black and the meat falls off their bones, so sharply is the poison…nobody from these three armies will come home anymore”
And in retaliation a Russian counter-strike?
“ …then I see someone flying, coming from the east, who drops something into the large water, so that something strange will happen. The water lifts itself as high as a tower and falls down, then everything is inundated. The whole action will not last long, I see three lines – three days, three weeks, three months, I don’t know exactly but it won’t last long.”
“There is an earthquake. The southern part of England slips into the water…One part . . . disappears, when the thing falls into the sea…The countries at the sea are endangered of the water heavily, the waves go high as a house; it foams, as if it would boil…Islands disappear…A part of the proud island sinks, if the thing falls into the sea, which the pilot drops. Then the water lifts itself as high as a tower and falls down. What this thing is, I do not know. When it comes, I do not know.”
Of course one has to ask whether such a weapon is feasible and to answer that we need to go back; back to the Second World War in fact because such a weapon is not only feasible, it may already exist.
The idea of a bomb that triggers a tidal wave is not as outlandish as it may first appear. Towards the end of WWII a top-secret project was underway in the waters off the coast of New Zealand to perfect just such a weapon. Project Seal as it was known was a secret weapon developed under the auspices of British and American defence chiefs who considered it as important as the atomic bomb.
Prof Thomas Leech, dean of engineering at Auckland University, conducted the experiments in the sea off Auckland on the so-called Tsunami bomb; in recognition he was awarded the CBE in 1947. The existence of the weapon was only disclosed in 1999 when New Zealand’s Foreign Ministry released declassified documents. According to the papers British and American defence chiefs were keen to see the development of the weapon, which would be exploded near enemy territory with the intention of creating devastating tidal waves (9). It doesn’t take a genius to realise that if the bomb were to carry a nuclear charge it would inundate such low lying countries as Holland and southern England. Significantly the Russians are also said to have developed such a weapon.
DARKNESS AT NOON
“During the war the big darkness comes, which last 72 hours. It will become dark at a day during the war. Then a hail impact, consisting of lightening and thunder, breaks out and an earthquake vibrates the earth. Please do not go out of the house at this time. The lights do not burn, except candle light, the current stops. Who inhales the dust, gets a cramp and dies. Do not open the windows, cover it completely with black paper...outside the death by dust goes around, many humans die. After 72 hours everything is over. But again: Do not go out of the house, do not look out of the windows, and keep the candle light burning. And pray. Overnight there will die more humans than in the two world wars before…”
“…Do not open the windows during the 72 hours…The cattle falls, the grass becomes yellow and dry, the humans will become quite yellow and black. The wind drives the clouds of death off to the east.”
THE WAR ENDS…FOLLOWED BY SWEEPING REVOLUTIONS
The end of the war is, according to Irlmaier, marked by sweeping revolutions:
“…The city with the iron tower (Paris? Ed.) becomes the victim of its own people. They ignite everything. Revolution is, and everything is going wildly.”
Could it be that people across the planet suddenly realise that the same powers that profited from the first world war and then engineered Hitler’s rise to power are behind the devastating war Irlmaier speaks of? Could it be that fired by this sudden realisation people spontaneously rise up?
“The large city with the iron tower is on fire. But this has been done by its own people, not by those who came from the east…And in Italy it is going wildly too. They kill many people there and the Pope flees, but many clergymen will be killed, many churches collapse.”
Note that elements in the Vatican are said to be in league with the architects of the New World Order, an accusation that has been further underlined by the Archbishop of Lusaka. Currently at the Secretariat of the Holy See for Immigrants at the Vatican, Archbishop Millingo is convinced that there are active Satanists within the Vatican’s walls. According to Millingo: “There are priests and bishops, but…because I am an archbishop, higher than that I cannot go.”
His accusations echo charges made by the late Malachi Martin, the former Secretary of Cardinal Augustine Bea. According to Martin… “the prince of darkness, has had and continues to have his surrogates in the court of St Peter in Rome.” (10) However this sudden revolutionary realisation isn’t confined to the west, says Irlmaeir:
“In Russia a revolution breaks out and a civil war. The corpses are so much that you cannot remove them off the roads anymore…The large ones among the party leaders commit suicide and in the blood the great guilty is washed off…. I see a red mass mixed with yellow faces, it is a general riot and horrible killing.”
Coupled with this revolution comes a spiritual renewal:
“The cross comes to honours anew. The Russian people believe in God anew. They sing the Easter song and burn candles in front of sacred pictures. By the prayers of Christianity the monster from hell dies; also the young people believe anew in the intercession of the God’s mother.”
The spiritual renaissance is mirrored in the West too.
“If everything is over, a part of the inhabitants have died, and the people are frightened of God anew.”
Prompting a change in the abortion laws.
“The laws, which bring death to the children, become invalid… Then peace will be. A good time. The Pope, who had not to flee across the water for a long time, returns. When the flowers bloom in the meadows, he will return and mourn for his murdered brothers… After these events a long, lucky time comes… But the people have to begin there, where their grandfathers began.”(11)
The upheavals throw humankind back 100 years, in terms of technological development; more importantly though it triggers a spiritual renewal. But naturally the question is: will these prophecies actually occur? Quite honestly this writer doesn’t know but ask yourself: how many millions actually voted for Al Gore or George W. Bush, how many millions endorsed Putin’s ascent to power or Blair’s premiership? These are the very men leading the great mass of humanity like sheep to this slaughter, then ask yourself: what does it take to wake people up to the reality of the powers that lead them? Could it be that the catastrophic events outlined in Irlmaeir’s prophecies are ultimately what wakes them?
