The United States is on the Verge of Entering into War with Russia and the Mainstream Remains Silent
At a recent International Conference, Vladimir Putin chastised journalists for lying to the people of their respective nations. He let them know very clearly just how dire the world situation is when he said “How do you not understand that the world is being pulled in an irreversible direction toward nuclear war?” He also explained to journalists that he doesn’t know how else to explain it to them in a way that helps them understand just how severe the situation really is.
Over the years, this answer has become quite clear to me. First of all, the news media, in the US at least, are run by large corporations whose first obligation is to themselves, then to the shareholders, and finally to the public’s entertainment. There are very few true journalists anymore, because it’s much easier to write down things that someone tells you to write down versus investigating situations and making clear connections based on fact.
But another question is: is it too late to escape what seems to be an inevitability at this point? Have Americans lost the courage to fight against their oppressors, or have we been divided so heavily that we’re unable to unify long enough to see what’s in front of our faces?
I don’t know the definitive answer to that question, because Americans tend to surprise me, but from what I see today, the answer is “no”; Americans will not come out of their silent slumber. No, Americans won’t unite long enough to fight their oppressors.
I’m of the opinion that life on Earth, a decent life that is, depends largely upon the reaction of America. These threats we face today are much more serious than we’ve faced in the past. Sure we’ve stared down an enemy with missiles aimed directly at us and won, but that was during a time of relative unity on at least that front. We were also led by a man who held nation above money, power, and politics. We do not have that luxury today.
So why am I casting such a dire prognosis for the world? Because the US, and NATO, is surrounding Russia with nuclear missiles that we ‘claim’ are anti-ballistic missiles (missiles that attack other missiles), when it’s a fact that those ABMs can be converted in a moment’s notice to a weapon system that can directly attack Russia in any location.
Barack Obama has tried using the Iranian threat against Europe as the necessity for these missile systems on the border, but anyone paying attention, including the Russian government, knows for a fact that there is no Iranian threat against Europe – none whatsoever.
Putin brought this point up to those same journalists at the International Conference. He knows the “Iranian threat” is merely a cover to allow the US led NATO troops to silently build these missiles and face them directly at Russian interests and targets.
But let’s put this into perspective – When the Soviet Union placed missiles in Cuba, a mere 90 miles off the coast of the United States, what did we do? JFK came out and very bluntly said he would attack with the full force of the US military if the Soviet Union didn’t remove those missiles and evacuate the area.
The Soviets knew JFK would make good on that promise, so they both came to an agreement – the Soviets would remove the missiles as long as the US didn’t invade Cuba. JFK also secretly agreed to remove missiles from Turkey. World War was averted on that day.
But are we dealing with minds that are even remotely similar to that of JFK? Are we dealing with a nation that was falling desperately behind in military advancements? No, and no.
Our current leader will likely never remove those missiles from the border, no matter what the Russians threaten. Also, the Russian military is as advanced, if not moreso in some areas, than our own.
Vladimir Putin has made numerous attempts to avert a catastrophe on the level that WWIII will become. He has pleaded with journalists to report the truth and to report the seriousness of Russia’s anxiety. He has attempted diplomatic measures, but what is he left with? The continued sanctioning of his nation, the continued buildup of US-led NATO forces and missiles on his border, and the continued blackout of the issues from the Western mainstream media.
So now we’re in a position where a nation, a very large nation, is being backed into a corner by bully-nations known as US-led NATO. They have been sanctioned economically, militarily, and via propaganda. They are running out of options and they’re running out of patience for true journalistic integrity to show its face.
Given that this is a nation that was surprise-attacked 70 years ago, it’s not unlikely they will strike pre-emptively, hoping to cobble any efforts for massive attacks in the future. With all the war games that the US military is performing in the Black Sea, and the military build-up on Russia’s border, the situation is becoming more volatile by the day.
Unfortunately, we don’t have a Presidential candidate running today that I believe will counter this aggressive stance from our nation. Trump says he will form some kind of an alliance with Russia, but from everything Trump says, we can’t believe much of it given his track-record of lying.
And with Hillary Clinton being a well-known liar, a hawkish self-proclaimed ‘Democrat’, we can be assured that she will further the provocation we’ve witnessed over the last 8 years under President Obama.
Can the American people pressure this government hard enough to prevent a nation, backed into a corner, from reacting in a way that most would react? Let me know what you think the answer to that question is in the comment section.
