Wars and Rumors of Wars
During the last two weeks the risks of open conflict between the US and Russia over Syria and the US and China and Russia over North Korea have escalated. The hypocrites in the corporate media who were lambasting Trump for his flip flop on Syria were also enthusiastically cheering him for launching sixty cruise missiles at an airbase in Syria!
Meanwhile North Korea displayed it military and weapons during a celebration of the 105 anniversary of the founder of the North Korean Republic which included the attempted launch of a new missile. Last Sunday North Korea in a move of self-determination and self protection test fired a missile but it exploded.
The US media played up the failure and there are now reports circulating the US may have had something to do with the malfunction. "North Korea's botched missile test may have been disrupted by a secretive US programme of cyber and electronic warfare designed to sabotage launches... The attempted test, and a weekend parade of Pyongyang's military hardware, prompted international condemnation and an American promise of further action if the hermit state failed to end its provocations. Under Barack Obama, the US stepped up electronic and cyber attacks on North Korea's missile programme. Those efforts are reported to include hacking and the use of electromagnetic weapons capable of disrupting electronic equipment." http://postnewsd2.blogspot.in/2017/04/north-koreas-botched-missile-...
This is nothing new the US has been using cyber warfare for years viruses like Stuxnet to attack the Iranian nuclear program. https://www.nytimes.com/topic/subject/cyberattacks-on-iran-stuxnet-... These are acts of war!
We must not forget the people of Syria elected Assad as their president, that it is the West and its fanatical Wahabi jihadist partners from Saudi Arabia who are attempting to overthrow Assad, usher in a bogus Islamic Caliphate which will propagate Neo-Colonialism on behalf of the West and make Israel the dominant power in the region.
With regards to North Korea, remember the Korean War was never resolved, no peace treaty was ever signed. The opposing sides merely agreed to withdraw their forces below the "Demilitarized Zone" that splits Korea and serves as a buffer to the North and South. The fact of the matter is the Koreans would like their country unified and to live together in peace. If Germany could be reunited so can Korea, but the West doesn't want a resolution there. If the West wanted peace they would aggressively pursue peaceful solutions. But noo, they maintain an adversarial stance towards North Korea. Naturally the North Korean leadership wants to protect itself from the American warmongers!
The corporate media played up the recent events in an alarmingly cavalier fashion providing analysis no on the potential these events have to trip start WW IV (WWIII is the ongoing covert operations, interventions, destabilization campaigns, coups, economic sanctions, imperialism and Neocolonialism of the US, UK, NATO, Israel etc following the official end of hostilities for WWII.) Nowhere in the corporate media do we hear voices calling for restraint, pleading for the mobilization for PEACE against the Trump administration's bellicose and discombobulated foreign policy if you can call it that. The corporate media are the megaphones and sycophants of the ruling class Deep State and their puppets in the government.
So amidst this tension, saber rattling and games of chicken, here are the actual reasons for all of this instead of the corporate media's lies. The NeoCon, global banking cartel, military industrial, security/surveillance state hydra's dream of a New American Century where the American Empire is the only super power in the world are swiftly imploding around them and they are in panic mode. China is about to eclipse the US as the largest economy in the world. The US dollar is losing its status as the world's reserve currency, the BRICS nations (Brazil Russia, India, China and South Africa) are challenging the World Bank, IMF and Bank of International Settlements usury monopoly with their New Development Bank and using alternative currencies in their mutual trade agreements and transactions. This means the end of US dollar hegemony, and the Western plutocrats are having conniptions. So they have unleashed the hellhounds by demonizing Putin, destabilizing Brazil's economy, fomenting tension between India and Pakistan and attempted a color revolution in South Africa in 2014. These are acts of war or precursors to war.
These current tensions and moves are all part of their panic because the BRICS and the Shanghai Cooperative Group (Russia and China's version of NATO) are not backing down and are taking precautions to protect themselves. http://investmentwatchblog.com/breaking-news-china-and-russia-send-... We are facing a Mexican Standoff of gargantuan proportions. Stay tuned.
Actually we are in the throws of WW IV now, WW III was the ongoing imperialist neo-colonial interventions, global proxy wars, trade, commerce and currency wars up to this point in time. I would say 9-11 marks the demarcation between WW III and WW IV. The Western ruling class wants "full spectrum domination" to usher in their New World Order, 9-11 was their way of jump starting the push towards all that. It is being played out in front of our eyes with this idiot Donald Trump as the head puppet.
The elites cannot tolerate Vladimir Putin standing in the way or stopping the Zionist plans for the so called Middle East http://www.globalresearch.ca/greater-israel-the-zionist-plan-for-th..., or their total control over the global usury banking system and their drive to expropriate all the carbon and other mineral resources in the world. This is what all the saber rattling and demonization of Putin, North Korea and to a limited degree China are all about. Africa is being recolonized under the bogus Global War on Terror excuse also but on a more quiet level. The major players are moving their military assets around the world to bluff and/or prepare for the actual shooting wars to come shortly. Because they are psychopaths the Western elites have no concern for the horrific destruction and death their wars will cause. Russia and China are showing restraint because they know and have experienced the horrors of war on their homeland. It remains to be seen who will blink or back down first. Keep in mind the plans for this type of global confrontation have been in the works for hundreds of years!!
World War III (WWIII or Third World War) denotes a successor to World War II (1939–1945) that would be on a global scale, with common speculation that it would be likely nuclear and devastating in nature. The term has also sometimes been used, perhaps most notably by Buckminster Fuller, to refer to the Cold War which existed between the communist and capitalist economies of various nations, especially the Soviet Union and the United States.
“I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.”Einstein
