Are We Flirting With WWIII?

Most Americans who have been paying attention to real-world politics and culture should all have a solid understanding that WWIII is imminent, and the collapse of the American Republic is continuing unabated in many different ways. Did anyone catch the Russian/China/Iranian alliance meeting last week? What about the Elite plan of global control enabled through “The Great Reset” and the letters signed by over 20 differing nations in support of a literal “New World Order” by any means necessary? The scary part about it is just how many major world leaders were actually part of it. Well if you didn’t, then take the time to study it. You might come to realize just how close we are to a very violent change in how the world operates on a global scale. So, here’s where we start:

Moscow, dictated by longtime ex-KGB agent Vladimir Putin, has not just military occupied Crimea and Eastern Ukraine, but just announced his plans to annex and integrate Belarus. Doubling down on his efforts to confront Europe, over the course of a couple of weeks he has begun to send convoys of technical hardware, military equipment, tanks, and soldiers into Crimea. Russia has also begun to stack army forces on the borders of Eastern Europe, most notably inside of Belarus (prepping for political annexation/integration), Ukraine, and Estonia/Latvia. The “ceasefire operations” at Donbass (occupied Eastern Ukraine) is a joke. Dozens of Ukrainian servicemen are killed weekly by Russian soldiers on their own soil.

China, dictated by “Nebuchadnezzar” Xi Jinping, has politically (by the use of undercover paramilitary forces) completely integrated the once autonomous and semi-democratic Hong Kong into the fabric of the Chinese mainland. This was reacted to with major economic sanctions by the previous Trump Administration. Even further, China has used its “stealth” fishing fleet to stage its ongoing island-building campaign in the (international) South China Sea. On top of it all, Taiwan is seeing the stages set for a military invasion and takeover by Chinese forces. Tensions are hot. Even Japan and the Philippines are seeing military intrusions consistently.

A peer of mine wrote Guns of April and Global War, saying: “Any one of these regional conflicts is incendiary enough to ignite World War III, or, more accurately, each one is capable of transforming the cold, hybrid warfare of cyber hacks, technology thefts, financial markets manipulation, and perhaps even biological attacks that have been underway for many years into total and unrelenting global bloodshed, yet trading markets and news media are largely ignoring what’s unfolding.”

It’s not far off, in my humble opinion. U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and NATO’s Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg met to announce the upfront military strategy for NATO 2030 that explicitly calls for the alliance to combat “Russian threats and hostile actions,” and to “expand and strengthen partnerships with Ukraine and Georgia,” and to address Chinese “security challenges.”  I am unsure how fulfilling Biden’s personal assurances are to President Zelensky that America is united with Ukraine, or that he’s publicly committed to protecting Taiwan—but things seem a bit different from the last Democratic (Obama-era) Presidency.

Through all of this, American warships have been steaming through the Black Sea and through the Taiwan Strait defying threats made by China and Russia (including their allies). As we move forward, we have seen that Iran, while critical in this geopolitical “game” has not been much of a power player except to harass Israel. However this time, Persia (Iran) has taken the battle to Syria and Iraq where Israel is ready to defend itself against all hostile threats. Just the other day, Iran has promised to respond against the U.S. and Israel for the recent Red Sea against a vessel being used as a covert Islamic Revolutionary Guard forward operating base.

If you have been paying attention, Russia isn’t going to let Ukraine retake Crimea. Russia will not return the Russian-aligned states of Luhansk and Donetsk to happen peacefully either. As a result, “Ukrainian President Zelensky’s signing of Decree No. 117/2021 directing the Ukraine Army to recapture and reunify these areas by flooding the Ukraine-Russia border with weapons, troops, tanks, and elite paratroopers. Russia is ready for war.”

China considers everything in the South China Sea, the East China Sea, and Taiwan (which is considered rebellious by China), its integral territory. With promises of military force to back up these territorial claims, artificial islands have been created in the disputed territories. These islands are built upon with a harbor and airfield, then stacked with military hardware and personnel. China is prepping for war.  And Taiwan is prepared as well.

WWIII seems all too imminent. And too does the collapse of the American Republic–in many different ways. I certainly could highlight the moral and ethical failures in American leadership–but that would be all too easy. Soviet defector Yuri Bezmenov in the 1980s would go on to give interviews warning of societal demoralization— an undermining of a nation’s morality that makes it ripe for leftist revolution — in America.

“Remember that, more and more, we’re living in post-constitutional and post-rule-of-law America,” as writer Selwyn Duke would mention. “We’re now increasingly subject to the rule of men and in the coming conflict, it’s only a matter of which men will win. America is irremediably divided — if a marriage, she would’ve dissolved long ago — and the resistance would, of course, make that division more official.”

To all of those who have been missing the point and completely distracted? Ignorance is certainly not bliss—especially when your reality is being engineered right underneath your nose. It’s not rocket science and it’s not complicated. It just takes “waking up” and trying a little harder to paying attention. Think, principles.
