Edging Closer to World War III or Washington’s Desperate Rabble Rousing?
American professor/ Sr. Geopolitical Analyst
During the past several months, there has been consistent reporting on a possible global conflict between Washington and its allies in the West, and Russia and its allies in the East.
The dispute on the South China Sea has severely damaged Washington’s relations with the People’s Republic of China. After the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague ruled that China’s nine-dash-line claim in the South China Sea and its land reclamation activities on islets are invalid and unlawful, Washington has been once again flexing its muscles and preparing to sail in the area under a so-called “Freedom of Navigation principle” (FON).
This has angered the Chinese. In August of this, the Chinese Defense Minister, General Chang Wanquan told his country’s citizens to prepare for, what he described as the people’s war at sea. General Wanquan was referring directly to Washington’s planned provocation under the pretext of FON. China has since vowed to take all necessary measures available to protect its sovereignty over the South China Sea, revealing that it had the right to set up an air defense zone on the sea.
China has also since been positioning and testing its nuclear weapons, and planning military drills on its waters with Russia. Even Washington has confirmed that China has tested an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile which is capable of striking everywhere in the world within 30 minutes.
Moving away from the South China Sea, we arrive in the embroiled nation of Syria. It is an open secret that the imposed war on Syria (I refuse to use the euphemism of the Syrian Civil War) is a proxy war between Washington and Russia. Russia has even intervened physically on the request of the Syrian government. Washington, unable to get any invitation, has been openly and secretly arming many “rebel groups” in the country with open plans to overthrow the Syrian government. Mind you, what Washington calls “rebels” or worst “moderate opposition” are none other than savage Wahhabi and Salafi funded by state sponsors of terrorism states of Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
Of course, since Russia honored the invitation of the Syrian government last year, the war has been turning in favor of the Syrian government, which was falling before Russia’s intervention.
As we speak now, tension is ever mounting between Washington and Moscow. Nerves are at their highest since the Cold War era. Washington, at the moment, is sitting on tenterhooks. Many officials in the Obama Administration are frustrated and confused regarding the situation in Syria.
In a typical arrogant unilateral gesture, Washington has announced that it has ended all contacts with Russia in Syria. This announcement comes as Russia, beginning on Sept. 22, intensified its military operations in Syria, with the intentions to capture the city of Aleppo for the Syrian government and defeat the NATO supported ISIS and Al-Nusra savages once-and-for-all. Diplomatic efforts to put an end to the fighting in Syria have collapsed.
As the Aleppo operation continues, Russia has given the United States a stern warning not to take any action against the Syrian government forces. In fact, there are many Russian jet fighters stationed in Syria, ready to shoot down any NATO jet fighter that attempts to strike on the Syrian government forces.
These developments from Moscow are not going down easily with Washington. The United States Secretary of State, John Kerry, is said to have urged President Obama to intervene and face the consequences from Russia. He is said to have even favored a nuclear deterrent against Russia. This is pure lunacy.
However, it appears that before Kerry could even make this suggestion to Obama, the Russians had already gathered intelligence on the happenings within the White House. According to Zvezda, a Russian defense ministry Television channel, the country has started preparing its citizens for a possible nuclear war with United States – because of the mounting tensions in Syria. Russia has since moved to deploy nuclear-capable Iskander missiles in its western-most region, Kaliningrad, which borders on NATO members of Poland and Lithuania.
Due to how the situation is deteriorating, some clearly crazy and trigger-happy top officials at the Department of Defense have finally spoken. These Pentagon officials are now recklessly suggesting that WWIII is imminent, and that it going to be deadly and fast. The military generals were speaking on a future-of-the-army panel in Washington.
“A conventional conflict in the near future will be extremely lethal and fast, and we will not own the stopwatch,” Major General William Hix said.
General Hix also stated that Chinese and Russian armies are becoming increasingly technological, and that the Pentagon was getting ready for violence on the scale that the United States Army has not seen since Korea.
His comments were also echoed by General Joseph Anderson and Chief of Staff General MarkMilley, who described war between nation states as almost guaranteed.
