As former Ronald Reagan assistant secretary to the Treasury for Economic Policy Paul Craig Roberts reports in this new story republished over at Zero Hedge, "America Is Walking Into Armageddon" as also heard in the 2nd video below. While a more accurate word might be 'herded' (like sheep!), the possible worst-case-scenario end results remain the same.
As Daisy Luther the Organic Prepper recently reported, at least 8 places around the world are now actively preparing for nuclear war and as she reports in her story, tensions are high in practically every corner of the world but somehow, despite the proliferation of imminent threats, many people are still blithely unaware of the hell that could be unleashed.
"More doom and gloom. Things are actually getting better. Trump is turning things around. I'm optimistic. I know some bad things are still gonna happen at times but to have so many articles saying the demise of the country or America is going to be destroyed isn't right I'm my opinion. Have some faith God isn't going to allow all these things that you write in your articles to happen."
And while we absolutely applaud President Trump for the changes that he has already accomplished in less than one year in office, America still has a very long way to go if we hope to completely drive corruption out of Washington DC.
The orchestrated hostility toward Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea protects the $1,000 billion annual budget of the military/security complex by convincing the American public that the US is threatened by enemies. It also keeps alive Democratic Party hopes that Trump can be removed from office, and it has prevented President Trump from normalizing relations with Russia. I have emphasized for some time that Washington’s gratuitous and aggressive actions against Russia and the constant barrage of false accusations against Russia and its government have convinced Russia that Washington is planning a military attack. There is nothing more reckless and irresponsible than to convince a nuclear superpower that you are preparing an attack on them.
One would think that such irresponsible and reckless behavior would have the citizenry aroused and the media reporting the risk. Yet, there is only silence. It is more important to the media whether NFL players stand for the national anthem and that some male politicians show sexual interest in women in inappropriate ways. Insouciant America is walking into Armageddon.
While most Americans are completely unaware of the dangers that potentially face us and how quickly things could come to a grinding halt evidenced by how poorly prepared most Americans are for even a big snowstorm, all across the planet preparations are now being made for nuclear war. While many of these preparations are taking place across the South Pacific and in lands near North Korea and Kim Jong Un, as we read from Daisy Luther, all it will take is one incident (or one 'tantrum'!) and things could quickly spiral completely out of control.
And while Luther's story focuses on North Korea, she ends her discussion with Russia, a country that should be one of our greatest 'friends' in our fight against 'radical Islamic terrorism', possibly turned into an enemy? What an absolute tragedy that would be as filmmaker Oliver Stone tells us in the final video below, "blaming Russia for everything is insanity".
Due to tensions between the US and North Korea, the world is frantically preparing for the possibility of a nuclear attack. The US, China, Russia, North Korea, and South Korea have all shown force with bombers and destroyers, and it seems that it will only be a matter of time before one incident sparks a cascading explosion.
The governments of these 8 places are making preparations, but they’ll be to little avail if people don’t participate and just expect to be rescued.
1. In South Korea, their government has urged citizens to get prepared for war, and prepping is becoming mainstream for North Korea’s nearest neighbor and sworn enemy.
2. A Chinese newspaper from an area that shares a border with North Korea published a series of articles advising people how to prepare for a strike.
3. Millions of people in Japan have taken part in (or soon will) nuclear attack evacuation drills, and the Prime Minister is urging local authorities to designate the best sturdy, underground sites to be used as potential shelters.
4. Australia recently received a warning from North Korea, calling the country a “vassal” of the United States.
5. Hawaii recently tested their nuclear sirens that have not been used since the 1980s. The island is the closest American state to Hawaii, which makes it geographically vulnerable.
6. As a US territory and the closest to North Korea, Guam could find itself in the crosshairs. Officials have issued guidelines to all its residents to prepare them for the possibility of a nuclear strike.
7. Here on the mainland, California is making preparations, but one notable factor is that residents should not expect help from the government any time soon should such a catastrophe occur.
8. Russia has been preparing for nuclear possibilities for quite a while now. Last year, it was reported that Russia was building fallout shelters all over the country and that 40 million citizens participated in a defense drill shortly before the US election, when tensions were running high over Syria.
But it didn’t end with the election because now Russia is up to its eyeballs trying to defuse the US/North Korea situation. Russian president Vladimir Putin recently received a letter from Kim Jong Un that stated they could launch an attack on the US “at any day” and could reach the mainland.
While some here in America might actually believe that a US war against Russia could be won, the long held doctrine of 'mutually assured destruction' proves otherwise yet as Roberts warns, 'pushing us towards annihilation' they are.
If there is going to be a war with Russia, then the United States will most certainly be destroyed, and most of us will end up dead.
Thus, if tomorrow a war were to break out between the US and Russia, it is guaranteed that the US would be obliterated. At a minimum, there would no longer be an electric grid, no internet, no oil and gas pipelines, no interstate highway system, no air transportation or GPS-based navigation. Financial centers would lie in ruins. Government at every level would cease to function. US armed forces, stationed all around the globe, would no longer be resupplied. At a maximum, the entire landmass of the US would be covered by a layer of radioactive ash. We tell you this not to be alarmist, but because, based on everything we know, we are ourselves alarmed. If attacked, Russia will not back down; she will retaliate, and she will utterly annihilate the United States.
Orlov then goes on to report upon what we were witnessing prior to the election from globalist leaders here in America, leaders who we believed we were voting out of office when electing President Donald Trump.
Yet if Roberts is correct, these globalists are pushing America to the brink of disaster, just as Orlov warned over a year ago.
The US leadership has done everything it could to push the situation to the brink of disaster. First, its anti-Russian policies have convinced the Russian leadership that making concessions or negotiating with the West is futile. It has become apparent that the West will always support any individual, movement or government that is anti-Russian, be it tax-cheating Russian oligarchs, convicted Ukrainian war criminals, Saudi-supported Wahhabi terrorists in Chechnya or cathedral-desecrating punks in Moscow.
Now that NATO, in violation of its previous promises, has expanded right up to the Russian border, with US forces deployed in the Baltic states, within artillery range of St. Petersburg, Russia’s second-largest city, the Russians have nowhere left to retreat.
They will not attack; nor will they back down or surrender. The Russian leadership enjoys over 80% of popular support; the remaining 20% seems to feel that it is being too soft in opposing Western encroachment. But Russia will retaliate, and a provocation or a simple mistake could trigger a sequence of events that will end with millions of Americans dead and the US in ruins.
