This piece is less of an article and more of a game. And the game goes like this. I will tell you a story, making it sound as convincing as I can of its authenticity. In reality though, it's just a story I cooked up in my head, a fiction. But no matter what the reality is and isn't if, at the end of your reading you are convinced that this story is real then, I win this game and you have to either post or share this piece on your wall. But on the contrary if, by the end of your reading you think the story is a fake then, you win and you write the most obnoxious comment about me that you can think of. Do we have a deal? If you accept the above terms and conditions then proceed.

Minimum requirements to play this game

1. Must have watched "Casino Royale" and "Quantum of solace" at least once
2. Must be capable of researching facts on your own
3. Must have a social media account to share or post, should you lose the game

Bonne chance. May the best in us win……

I don't know about you but I am a big James Bond movie fan. As a kid I always wanted to be James Bond, my first career choice was to be a fighter pilot in the air force for some time and then volunteer to join RAW and become a secret agent like James bond. Obviously that did not happen. However in a wicked twist of fate I got a proposal to join RAW, it was a direct DSP rank. I don't know why, but I turned down the offer and someone else was recruited in my place……….

This story revolves around the two James bond movie casino royale and quantum of solace. The two James bond movies were a well planed attempt by the screenplay writer Paul Haggis to bring to light an extremely powerful and highly secretive private organization controlling the world. These guys who run the show, create war and profit from it, topple government if they go against them, control resources and demand high prices for it, infiltrate government in every level, have everything in their hands and yet nobody even knows they exists. There was suppose to be a third bond movie in this same line of story exposing the organization even more, but it was never made. This organization is so powerful that in order to stop the 3rd movie from being made they not only removed the writer they even bankrupted MGM so as to stall the next bond movie. James bond may not be real but his enemy in the movie is very much real, they have people everywhere even in MGM. I recommend you watch the movies again so that you know what I am talking about.

False flag operation

September, 11, 2001 attack on the world trade center was a false flag operation. Which means, a very powerful organization having people in the highest levels of the Government, not excluding the president carried out the operation in order to achieve a vested interest. In this case, it was the invasion of Iraq and control of its oil fields.

Interestingly

• Between September 6 and 7, the Chicago Board Options Exchange saw purchases of 4,744 put options on United Airlines, but only 396 call options… Assuming that 4,000 of the options were bought by people with advance knowledge of the imminent attacks, these "insiders" would have profited by almost $5 million.
• On September 10, 4,516 put options on American Airlines were bought on the Chicago exchange, compared to only 748 calls. Again, there was no news at that point to justify this imbalance;… Again, assuming that 4,000 of these options trades represent "insiders," they would represent a gain of about $4 million.
• [The levels of put options purchased above were more than six times higher than normal.]
• No similar trading in other airlines occurred on the Chicago exchange in the days immediately preceding Black Tuesday.

Casino Royale

The main villain Le Chiffre loses a lot of money in a similar betting incident against an airline company whose prototype plane he had planned to blow up fails because of bond's involvement.

As the plot of casino royale progresses Le Chiffre is seen torturing James bond when suddenly a man walks in with a gun. Le chiffre, scared….. "Tell them I'll get the money" and the man replies…….. "Money isn't as valuable to our organization as knowing whom to trust" and shoots him dead. Thus introducing "the organization ".

Bond has no idea what this organization is, he is hardly even aware of its existence. It does not matter to him until Vesper who he falls in love with, kills herself while dealing with the organization. This makes him determined to find out about this organization and avenge her death. Following a tip left behind by Vesper, Bond catches up with Mr. White shooting him on the leg. The movie ends with James bond introducing himself to Mr. White of the organization ………"The name's Bond…….. James Bond". The title of this write up.

Quantum of solace

Starts off, with a spectacular car chase ending in Bond bringing Mr. White to an MI-6 safe house for interrogation. He opens his trunk looks at Mr. White, this man from the organization and tells him….. "It's time to get out". Significance of this scene... The first words from Bond, in the movie are him saying it's time to get out to the organization. Out where everyone can see you.

As M starts questioning Mr. White, he is amused by the fact that M the head of MI-6 doesn't even know the organization exist and then he comments…… "The first thing you should know about us is that we have people everywhere, isn't that right" and M's personal body guard shoots M and runs away, he turns out to be an agent of the organization. "What the hell is this organization, Bond? How can they be everywhere and we know nothing about them?" ……. M.

Following a lead Bond arrives at Haiti and starts pursuing a man named Dominic Greene. Dominic is seen having a conversation with a deposed dictator offering him to help place him in power in Bolivia in return he wants rights to resources he finds in a desert. "Well, look at what we did to this country (Haiti) "…..Dominic Greene to General Medrano.

In Austria Bond uncovers that the organization, now with a name Quantum consist of very powerful people; ex Russian minister, ex MOSSAD, special envoy to the prime minister of UK….
In Bolivia, Bond foils the plans of Dominic Greene to topple the government and take control of the water reserves and sell them at double the price to the people (the Cochabamba protest).
The movie ends with bond catching Vesper's ex boyfriend and handing him over to MI-6. Supposedly he finds his peace, suggesting he no longer feels the need to pursue the organization.

The real world

The movie actually had an additional 1 minute of scene which was there in the first screening but was cut out in its subsequent release to the audience. In this scene Bond is seen still pursuing the organization. Mr. White is about kill Guy Haines because MI-6 now knows he is a member of the organization. If this ending was kept, it would have been a more fitting ending and a trilogy of bond movie was surely in order, but removing this scene however prevented the next bond movie to be its sequel. And evidently the story of Skyfall has no connection with quantum of solace. If this scene was still kept then, bond had to be still pursuing the organization in skyfall.

Knowing what I know and watching quantum of solace I was telling myself…… oh boy something big is about to happen. The snake has to come out of the hole now! Or else the next Bond movie is going to expose them all.

By no way was the trilogy to the bond series going to happen…….. Why? Because the organization is real, you idiot! And the next bond movie was going to spill all the beans about them. It was evident; bond was going to confront the big boss of the organization. Things were getting too close for comfort so, the big boss pulled the plug on MGM. Well they had people everywhere alright, even in MGM, the company behind the James bond movie. I am not going to tell you more. I am leaving some for you to investigate on your own. Investigate what happened to James bond's 23 movie and MGM.

The spectre

The definition of spectre is a ghost or something widely feared as a possible unpleasant or dangerous occurrence. Spectre is James bond's ultimate nemesis. The name comes from Ian Fleming's James bond novel, Thunderball. The organization the Mr. White mentions in his conversations consist of three layers. The outer most, consisting of people who work for money, like Le Chiffre. The second layer called the quantum consist of more permanent members(owners of big companies) and they work to take control of all available resources on earth say oil, water, minerals, etc. The third and the last layer consist of people who control them all; I am calling it the spectre. Bond was supposed to take on the spectre in the next bond movie, but it never materialized.

Manipur

Have you ever wondered of all the people in the world, why is France helping Manipur? Sewage project in collaboration with France and then there is the Sanjenthong Bridge, a gift from France but still costing us around 30 cores for the tiny bridge. In quantum of solace, did you notice that Dominic Greene was a French national who owned a utility company that sold water to the Bolivia goverment? Why France? Google "largest water company" the 2 biggest water company in the world, "Veolia environment" and "Suez environment" are French companies. That's why Dominic Greene is French and that's why Greene is after the water in the desert.

The French are always looking for water. And they are here……. for the lake… the Loktak Lake, the largest fresh water source in the northeastern region. Water is about to turn into blue gold and when it does, quantum will have exclusive rights over the lake and we all will be paying whatever amount they ask for water. Manipur is about to become the next Bolivia or Haiti.

There is one problem though, if the people are united and strong, exploitation of the resources will be very difficult if not impossible. Everyone will know what their plans are and who the real enemy is.

Keep them distracted, make them fight each other. Divide them and make them weak…….Kuki vs. Meitei vs. Naga…..Hill vs. plain. And now the situation is ideal, the people are weak; hate and mistrust has become dominant over love and understanding. Manipur is ready for exploitation. I give it about 5 yrs; don't forget to blame each other when that time comes. Have fun.

The End.

Now it's up to you to decide … is the story fake or real? Who won the game?
The only question for me is……. are you smart enough to understand this game?
