Two Mountains of Brass

Permalink   
 

 

The Danube River, which runs from the Black Forest to the Black Sea, is the natural division between Northern and Southern Europe and many wars and treaties have been fought over control of this river. As well, Belgrade in Yugoslavia has been fought over more then any other city in Europe solely because it has a commanding position over the Danube river.  It is a well known Military Axiom that whoever controls the Med controls the world and it can further be said that whoever controls Europe controls the Med and finally, whoever controls the Danube controls Europe.

 

So, exactly why has the Balkans in general and Belgrade in particular been the battle field in the balance of power and the striving of the Four Winds over Europe?  That Fifty Million dollar question is answered by Zechariah, before anyone even knew anything about the Danube or the balance of power or the Grecian and Roman Empires.

 

He said that it was centered between two Mountains of Brass.

The Iron Gates of the Danube

 

When I first looked at that verse, knowing that it had something to do with Greece, I looked up the geology of that country and, indeed, it is divided up into the Grammar Range in the North and the Pindus in the South, but for some reason this seemed unsatisfactory to me. If you look at a World Atlas that has the relief maps of the mountains you will see that Greece is nothing more then one big mountain range.

 

But then, during my studies, I came across one bit of information that solved the mystery. You see, the Balkan Peninsula mountain range extends north up to the banks of the Danube and, just so happens that, there is another mountain range - the Carpathians - that extends down from Orthodox (Eastern - Grecian - Brass) Ukraine, right up to the banks of the Danube, directly across from the Balkan mountain range and about 100 miles east of Belgrade and the Danube river flows right between them. These two mountains ranges form the natural division between East and West Europe and explains all the fighting that has taken place here in the last 2,000 years and more.  They are known as the Iron Gates of the Danube and Brass is mined from them as well.

It appears this has now moved to Syria between Russia and Turkey.

I guess Lenin sneezed and Erdogan caught a Cold War...

This is also the very area that the Immigrant waves of refugees are pouring through by the millions on their way to Europe.

And now its become an epidemic...

 

Here is the deal - Most of the Muslim World - such as Saudi Arabia - are Sunni Muslims and Iran, Iraq, India and Pakistan are, basically, Shia Muslims - as is Assad.  By taking Assad's side, Putin has pissed off the entire Sunni world - that's why Egypt shot down one of Russia's Planes.  So, the enemy of my enemy thing now has all these Sunni Muslim's in bed with Uncle Sam.  That is why OPEC has increased its Oil Production - to drive down Iran's and Russia's economies.  And, we can expect Iran to increase its own Oil production which will, assuredly, drive the price of oil down below that magic $20 a Barrel Glass Floor.

Now, get this! Remember how fast Obama pushed through the UN Nuke deal with Iran? Well, the reason was because the Sanctions on Iran included sanctions against their oil so by ditching the Sanctions against nukes they also freed up Iran to start producing more oil. This will drive the price of oil down even further and will impact Russia's economy even more - this was the whole reason for that move.

The US is playing Nuclear Chicken but it ain't gonna be Putin who flinches first...

And, if there wasn't enough incenderies in the mix already, Brexit has now begun to call Europe to re-evaluate the NATO relationship - aggravated by the current tensions between Uncle Sam and the Dying Man of Europe - and consider rearming itself with its own Military.

Don't sneeze...
