The risk of nuclear war is now concerningly high
It is not that difficult to envision a scenario in which President Trump takes military action involving more than a single bullet in response to Kim Jong Un’s nuclear and missile tests.
A Great War Is Coming…
…and THIS is Their Sales Pitch:
While the US builds its presence of warships in the South China Sea, China has concurrently been conducting an unprecedented number of drills…
When my two brothers and I would ask about the war, he only said, “Boys, you don’t want to know, and I don’t want to tell you.”
Forget Fukushima, the worst nuclear disaster in human history is baack….
“It’s like Chernobyl all over again…”
Surely its just a co-incidence that the largest Ukrainian forest fire since 1992 just happens to be converging on Chernobyl…precisely while the US is attempting to provoke Russia into WW3 by destabilizing the Urkaine…right?
The start of what could be a major military conflict in the Middle East began yesterday when Saudi Arabia began bombing Yemen last night.
But if you get your news from Bloomberg.com or CNN or Fox, the only big news to which you would be exposed is the German commercial airliner crash, which occurred nearly three days ago.
Harley Schlanger joins the SGTREport to discuss the very latest global news.
We begin with the assassination of Boris Nemtsov and who is likely behind it as the Western banking powers lead the world closer and closer to WW3.
We discuss the collapse of the EU and the fraud that is the Greece debt bomb:
We are already in the middle of a very real information and psychological war between two of the world’s largest powers. And as I understand the conflict, BOTH sides view the war as an existential struggle–and both sides are playing deceptively and unethically.
Welcome to the fog of war…
Washington is hell-bent on a war with Russia. It is part of the PNAC (Plan for a New American Century) to take over the world. After Russia, China would follow.
That’s the plan.
China is being encircled as we speak. Never mind that Russia and China have recently concluded a pact, a close financial and military alliance – which to defeat will be next to impossible.
Unless – and here is the crux of the matter – unless Washington initiates an all-out nuclear war, destroying the planet, including itself – but foremost Europe.
If the United States and Russia fought a nuclear war, who would win? You might be surprised by the answer. Under the Obama administration, the rapidly aging U.S. strategic nuclear arsenal has been shrinking.
Meanwhile, the Russians have been developing an entirely new generation of bombers, submarines and missiles that have the capability of delivering an absolutely crippling first strike.
At this point, most Americans consider a full-scale nuclear war to be inconceivable. But in Russia attitudes are completely different.
To the Russians, the United States is enemy number one these days and the Russians are feverishly preparing for a potential military showdown.
Did you know that two Russian bombers practiced launching cruise missiles at the United States from a spot in the North Atlantic this week? And did you know that Russia is spending massive amounts of money to build and test new nuclear weapons systems? Meanwhile, the Obama administration is doing absolutely nothing to upgrade the U.S. nuclear arsenal. Our nuclear officers are actually still using floppy disks and other computer technology from the 1960s. The size of the U.S. nuclear arsenal has been reduced by about 95 percent from the peak of the Cold War, and Barack Obama has spoken of even more dramatic reductions. Obama is snoozing even as a Russian general speaks of the need to “spell out the conditions under which Russia would launch a preemptive nuclear strike” against the United States.
Obama appears to be entirely convinced that a nuclear war between the U.S. and Russia is not even a remote possibility. He better be right, because we are definitely not prepared for one.
Even with everything that has happened between the United States and Russia lately, most Americans still believe that “the Cold War is over” and that Russia presents absolutely no threat to us.
But the truth is an entirely different story…
Russian soldiers and Ukrainian soldiers are now shooting at each other in eastern Ukraine.
Could this conflict ultimately lead us down the road to World War 3?
The Russians seem themselves as “the good guys” in this conflict and so does the western world. But that is how most wars start. Both sides usually feel morally justified at the start of a conflict.
In the final analysis, however, is it really going to matter very much who was “right” and who was “wrong” if the end result is World War 3?
Putin plays chess, the “markets” play Tic-Tac-Toe.
The US is clearly now pushing Russia towards war. But if you read the signs correctly, Russia has been preparing for exactly this outcome for many years.
Out of several reasons that US power brokers specifically — but western power brokers more generally — are deeply unhappy with Russia right now is that Russia is committing a cardinal sin: it is openly, brazenly calling for an end to dollar dominance and has moved aggressively with China to achieve that aim.
No oil-rich country that has tried to move away from the dollar in the past twenty years has managed to do so without being attacked by the US, suffering a regime change, or being ruined by sanctions. In some cases, all three.
Not only has Russia managed to secure a string of heavy-duty bilateral trade and currency swap agreements over the past year, but they’ve done so despite ever-increasing threats and responses from the US and its allies.
And frighteningly, the equity markets in the West are completely ignoring the nested set of risks that accompany these moves and countermoves by two geopolitical heavyweights, which range from punishing trade wars (already underway), to electronic warfare, to an actual shooting war.
In a recent address, Sergei Glazyev, the Economic Advisor to Russian President Putin warned that the US has begun another World War with their actions in the Ukraine, and stated that in order to solve the Ukraine conflict, Russia must defeat the heart or Nazism- the US.
“Kiev is clearly conducting a policy of genocide to eliminate the whole population of Donbass… They’re destroying hospitals, kindergartens, schools. The fate they’re preparing for the people of Donbass is serfdom… It is obvious that the United States is fully controlling the Kiev Nazis, Poroshenko personally, and the government, and is pushing them to pursue this war against Donbass to the very end… THIS IS A WAR BY THE UNITED STATES AGAINST US… So we have to understand that the key to resolving the catastrophe of Ukraine is to be found in Washington.
That’s where Nazism has to be defeated..”
Glazyev’s full MUST WATCH address is below:
The MH17 disaster is so bad that it’s made people forget about the roving army of fanatics that has taken over half of Iraq and parts of Syria in their quest to build a global caliphate.
This is much bigger. And there’s so much pent up tension between rising powers right now, there’s serious risk of it turning into a much greater conflict.
It seems ironic that the world was in a similar situation exactly a hundred years ago.
Just like a century ago when waning British power invited a power struggle among rising nations, waning US power is creating conflict with Russia, China, etc.
A century ago, they settled it on the battlefield. Everyone knew war would eventually come to Europe. But the great miscalculation was they presumed it would be just another 19th century limited war.
It was anything but. The great war brought brutal mass killings, bombings, heavy artillery, gassing, etc. And it changed warfare forever.
This time around, the way we conduct war is different. Similarly, leaders are miscalculating, thinking that they can scare their opponents with warships and fighter jets.
But modern warfare isn’t fought with boots on the ground. In 2014, cyberwar and economic war looms.
