There has been a peak of extremist activity in Europe in recent days. The formal reason that triggered the process is the publication of the cartoons insulting the Prophet Muhammad by Charlie Hebdo. Subsequent events came very quickly: teacher’s beheading, the forceful comments made by E. Macron and followed by a series of terrorist attack in France and Austria.
This crisis is certainly due to European interior problems. Such a turn of events has been expected. Sooner or later, the accumulated contradictions had to result in an escalation of violence.
At the same time, an important process is taking place on the global stage – the US presidential election, which splits local society not only by political preferences, but also by religious affiliation, race and lifestyle. The escalation in Europe coincided surprisingly with the peak of the election campaign in the US.
The vote fraud is the large factor of the presidential election in the United States, according to Donald Trump:
Last night I was leading, often solidly, in many key States, in almost all instances Democrat run & controlled. Then, one by one, they started to magically disappear as surprise ballot dumps were counted. VERY STRANGE, and the “pollsters” got it completely & historically wrong!

Investors are extremely wary of the current events. Contested election, further turmoil, and possible destabilization of US political system will surely affect financial markets. Both sides of the American political struggle admit, or even state the inevitability of protests’ eruption in the United States, regardless of the Presidential election results. They will push investors away from the dollar.
There are not many stable currencies or save heavens left in the world. In the Euro-Atlantic region, the main competitor of the dollar is the European currency, the euro. As a result of the crisis, Europe can gain significant competitive advantages on the global market, and the euro can strengthen its status as the world currency.
This scenario is at odds with the interests of a significant part of the Washington establishment. Thus, it is highly likely that there will be or have already been attempts to organize pressure on the European economic system and the European currency.
Both opposing forces in Washington need a certain pause in foreign policy in order to sort out the interior disputes. Thus, both forces today are interested in high-profile destructive events in various world regions, which would occupy the local political leadership and political elites with their own problems.
In these conditions, the ongoing wave of terrorist attacks in Europe and the recently erupted war between Armenia and the Turkish-Azerbaijani bloc in the Nagorno-Karabakh region appeared to be pretty well-timed events that contribute to the interests of the Washington establishment.

Of course, the American intelligence services cannot be blamed for contributing in some way to terrorist attacks in Europe. On the other hand, there is a probability different from zero that it was in their interests, for example, to delay the transmission of necessary information to their European counterparts. Or it could support the increase of the immigration flow from North Africa, which was taking place in recent months. Or the promotion of protest activity in Europe, for example, in Poland. All these events negatively affect both the general socio-economic stability of Europe and the European currency.
It is likely that a similar approach is shared by the UK, which has become the main partner of the Americans in the international arena. If both the US dollar and the euro lose their positions at the same time, the British pound and the UK itself as the financial center of Europe will gain the most.
Another destabilizing factor for Europe and the South Caucasus, the war in the Nagorno-Karabakh region, also faces little concern among the current US leadership. Instead, the Turkish expansion to the region, which is accompanied by the increase of presence of radical militant groups in Nagorno-Karabakh (most of members of these groups have views similar to those of people that carry out terrorist attacks in Europe) and the subsequent destabilization of the Caucasus are also in interests of Washington and even NATO. This does not only allows to draw attention of the European political and business elites from the instability in the United States, but also creates conditions for the strengthening of NATO positions near Russian borders. In the future, points instability created along Russian borders could be used as a part of the coordinated campaign to destabilize and dismantle the Russian state.
If we even totally reject the ‘conspiracy style’ theory of politically motivated manipulations, it seems probable that not U.S. or British elites but their financial speculators would try to use instability in various regions to organize swing trading. While the Washington can seek to temporarily weaken the Europe’s position, global financial elites are interested in lasting destabilization in any part of the world that they have enough capabilities to provoke.
Indeed, both factors, the growth of the terrorist threat in Europe and the instability in the United States, are mutually reinforcing and would allow financial speculators to derive super profit from market volatility. In general, all the current crisis phenomena, such as political instability in the USA, socio-economic tensions in Europe, global problems caused by the coronavirus crisis, contribute only to global financial speculators. All the while, the main losses are incurred by ordinary people.
