Two important definitions to help you understand the commentary following some of the links below
Socialism(ist): State (government) control of the means (you and your business) and output of production (including your income). With all of the regulations and taxes created by BOTH parties over the years, its obvious that we live in a socialist society.
Fascism(ist): State and corporate powers merged to control the means and output of production. As you can see from the two definitions, fascism is simply a subset of socialism. Also; considering the influence of large corporations on government today for profit, exclusion of competition and now preventing people from rising up against all they've paid for; it's obvious that the USA has a fascist regime in control.
The only solution to fascism is to reduce government to the point where there is nothing left for anyone to buy control of with lobbying efforts. The good news is that socialism always ultimately collapses economically, and the USA will be no different. We need to help as many people as possible to understand that the solution when this government self-destructs is NOT to replace it and, instead, celebrate and defend our freedom from it.

BRICs Bank To Rival World Bank And IMF And Challenge Dollar Dominance, Zero Hedge
count on the sociopaths who call themselves US government to attack the brics in some way to try and protect the dollar's reserve currency status, regardless of how much they have to print to do it. When the day comes that entire world recognizes they shouldn't conduct international transactions in over-printed dollars, the enormous supply of dollars held around the world will meet collapsing demand and their purchasing power will act accordingly. This is a far more massive monetary instability than any of the others that caused hyperinflation. Furthermore, today's dependency on technology that will also collapse will make the societal disaster far worse than the Weimar Germany experience documented so well in "When Money Dies" by Adam Fergusson.

also, the dollar is still a bit too weak along with still high price inflation, especially for oil. So some economic/market correction is still needed for the Fed to have the needed room for policy. Time is running out to accomplish this before impacting Obama's re-election, possibly due to fear of Ron Paul getting enough economic ammo to win a "brokered" GOP convention. Those are the Fed's proverbial rock and hard place. His best option is probably to try and talk-up the market while actually tightening policy, which the stock market is likely to see through after the knee-jerk response...

spending this massive/historic amount has only been able to delivery a meager "recovery", and when the intervention even slows, the recession (or next of the more frequent and intense waves of the rolling depression) will be far worse than 2008, because the only Fed/government solution remaining will destroy the economy with more socialism/fascism and destroy the money with printing and loss of confidence/status for the global reserve currency.

Treasuries Snap Longest Ever Losing Streak, Zero Hedge
because the higher rates are intolerable for the government, the Fed drives down rates from these peaks either by printing or letting the economy correct which causes a flight to safety reduction in rates.

Soviet Leader: Chernobyl Nuclear Accident Caused the Collapse of the USSR, Washington's Blog
It's important to understand that system failure are caused by existing conditions that create the unfavorable environment (excessive debt to pay for things like over-extended evil empire and other massive Keynesian efforts to prevent economic cleansing) and a triggering event, like Chernobyl or Fukushima. Interestingly, like a nuclear critical mass, when unfavorable conditions are widespread (global debt crisis), one triggered failure (like economic collapse of one of the largest economies in the world in Japan) can then become the trigger for further failures (economic collapses all over the globe). A consequential increase in Japanese bond rates by only 1% due to inflation would be enough to complete the trigger.

UPDATE: Iranian oil bourse will start trading oil in currencies other than the dollar from March 20, Daily Paul
the two linked articles put the pieces of this situation together nicely. this is NOT about nuclear weapons and is ALL about US forcing dollar hegemony on the world to preserve its reserve currency status, so it can continue its evil global empire paid for with worthless printed fiat money, and continue consuming far beyond its means as measured in true capital wealth (which it has also been consuming for decades). The collapse when the US dollar finally falls from global grace will look a lot like Adam Fergusson's account of Weimar Germany in "When Money Dies", and quite possibly far worse if the grid goes down with everything else, which it easily could, for a very long time, resulting in the collapse of society and the death of a large fraction of the US population.

Panetta Says Us Will Take Military Action In Iran If All Else Fails, Zero Hedge
once Ron Paul is sufficiently disposed of by the fascist establishment, they will be able to safely stop printing money and let the markets fall along with social mood. This will then politically advantage whatever GOP Wall Street whore is running against Obama, providing the oil price wiggle room necessary for attacking Iran to try and regain political advantage (and preserve the reserve status of the US dollar a bit longer), plus allow the Fed the inflation margin needed for more money printing so that the financial/military/industrial complex can again plunder the people. Hang-on, because they will eventually lose control of the wild market ride ahead, either on this down leg of the shortening cycles or one soon after. For a preview of what you have to look forward to, or quite possibly worse, read "When Money Dies" by Adam Fergusson.

includes an outstanding video. I agree with his economic comments from the standpoint that all those things would indeed happen if the sociopaths who call themselves government weren't looting the people. The vast wealth they steal and resulting destruction of productive capability (capital) could, without government, instead go to productive private enterprise that would raise the economic standing of everyone more than the vast majority can even imagine.
