Wars in the offing

Erick San Juan

RUSSIA and Iran have said that they will respond to further American military actions following the recent air strike in Syria.

The Trump administration has said that more strikes are possible, but Russia and Iran are both pledging that “we will respond with force” if any more attacks are conducted.

In a joint statement, the command center for the two countries and allied groups said, “What America waged in an aggression on Syria is a crossing of red lines. From now on we will respond with force to any aggressor or any breach of red lines from whoever it is and America knows our ability to respond well.”

We are gradually approaching some exciting times and the world is at the edge wherein a tiny spark could ignite the tinderbox that will start a major global conflict. And the newly elected US President plays the major role that may lead humanity to war or peace.

The article “Will The US Be Drawn Into Fighting Two Major Wars Simultaneously?” points to the Syrian crisis and North Korea. Sadly, despite the campaign promise of President Trump of not engaging in regime change on sovereign states, here, we are witnessing a possible regime change scenario that will put the world in danger to the next global war. Was it the usual promise of a politician meant to be broken, or only fools don’t change their mind?

Is a regime change necessary in solving the North Korean crisis? What is at stake for the rest of the world under that scenario?

NBC News is reporting that President Donald Trump is considering various military options for North Korea, and one of those options includes “killing dictator Kim Jong-Un”…

The National Security Council has presented President Donald Trump with options to respond to North Korea’s nuclear program–including putting American nukes in South Korea or killing dictator Kim Jong-un, multiple top-ranking intelligence and military officials told NBC News.

After seeing what happened in Syria and hearing these threats openly discussed in the US media, what do you think Kim Jong-Un is thinking at this point?

One member of the US Congress is warning that “millions can die” if a military strike against North Korea goes badly.

Once US missiles begin flying, North Korea can start firing off their nukes and their vast arsenal of chemical warheads almost instantly.

Could you imagine what would happen if large numbers of deadly nerve gas warheads started exploding in downtown Seoul, downtown Tokyo and at US military bases in Japan?

The carnage would be off the charts, and this is a scenario that we want to avoid at all costs.

Unfortunately, it seems like we are coming closer to a conflict with North Korea with each passing day.

In fact, we learned that an aircraft carrier strike group headed by the USS Carl Vinson is sailing in the direction of North Korea right now.

Amid rising tensions with North Korea, China’s nuclear envoy went to North Korea to assess the situation.

The aircraft carrier and its accompanying ships had been scheduled to leave from Singapore for port visits to Australia, but Admiral Harry Harris, head of US Pacific Command, ordered the strike group to head north toward Korean waters instead.

If the scenario develops into a shooting war, what comes after will be far greater devastating for the world’s economy.

Why is this so?

What was not told was the dumping of US dollar by both Russia and China. Suddenly, at St. Petersberg, in the hometown of President Vladimir Putin, it was terrorized by bomb explosion while Putin was there.

Is the Korea threat for real? South Korean security analysts said that South and North Korean governments have been in an open communication, including relatives from both camps. So what is the US strike force for?

“So what happens if the US starts fighting two major wars simultaneously, the biggest debt bubble in the history of the planet starts bursting, and the US stock market crashes by 50 percent as some analysts are projecting. US super elites are wary that hidden forces are trying to destabilize America. Will this be the main reason that the real major war is in the offing?

“Some Americans still have memories of living through the Great Depression and World War II, but most of us have been living in a bubble of peace and prosperity for so long that we don’t think that anything could ever come along and threaten our way of life.

“And since the election of Donald Trump, interest in ‘prepping’ has dropped to the lowest level that I have ever seen.”

We ain’t seen nothing yet that is far greater crisis than major wars happening at the same time. And the first strike policy of the US if implemented will burst that bubble of peace and prosperity. And the rest will surely be part of a bad history.
