Timothy Alexander Guzman, Silent Crow News – The American Empire is playing a dangerous game with its nuclear weapons arsenal. The US-NATO and Israel alliance has declared directly and indirectly that Russia, China, North Korea and Iran are a threat to world peace and security. Let’s be clear on who is the real threat to world peace and it is not the countries I just mentioned, it is Washington’s geopolitical ambitions to bring its enemies under their sphere of control. Washington’s geopolitical moves are antagonizing its enemies which can ignite a catastrophic world war that can go to nuclear at a moment’s notice. The threat of a nuclear war is at almost the same level of the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis, but if you listen to the main-stream media (MSM) you may never know what is really going on concerning world events.
The first woman and U.S. Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has threatened Iran with nuclear strikes while Israel maintains its own nuclear weapons arsenal which is also a threat to its neighbors in the Middle East, especially Iran. Washington is placing NATO troops and Missile Defense Systems close to Russia’s borders and giving the U.S. Navy the green light to a possible confrontation with China’s naval fleet in the South China Sea. Washington’s bellicose actions are indeed provocative. As I mentioned in a 2013 article ‘Hawaii: 120 Years of US Occupation: Militarism and “America’s Pacific Century’ Hillary Clinton who was Secretary of State at the time wrote an article in 2011 titled ‘America’s Pacific Century’ for Foreign Policy Magazine where she defined what the U.S. role would be in the Pacific region:
Strategically, maintaining peace and security across the Asia-Pacific is increasingly crucial to global progress, whether through defending freedom of navigation in the South China Sea, countering the proliferation efforts of North Korea, or ensuring transparency in the military activities of the region’s key players
America’s strategy in the South China Sea is to isolate China at all costs while empowering their vassal states in the region with political, economic and military support. According to a July 12th article by The Guardian, China has rejected a ruling by an international tribunal in The Hague which claims that the Philippines has legal rights in the South China Sea “over strategic reefs and atolls that Beijing claims would give it control over disputed waters of the South China Sea.” The ruling is a moral justification for the U.S. Navy to patrol the South China Sea while advancing Washington’s strategic goals. First it allows Washington to block any trade or cooperation agreements between China and its neighboring countries which can leave Western business interests out of the loop which is why the Obama regime continues to push the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) which gives US corporations unlimited power in the region. The TPP is one of the agreements under Obama’s “Asian Pivot” that puts corporate power over government’s who sign on to the TPP. Under the TPP, laws that protected the working-class people and labor unions before their governments sign on to the TPP would be diminished. The agreement will also end regulations that effect health, safety and environmental standards and the list goes on. Corporations like Monsanto would become a major benefactor in agriculture sector throughout the entire region. Second, it gives Washington an excuse to remain in the South China Sea to protect its corporate interests and its allies from the “China Threat” following the objective of “Full-Spectrum Dominance” in the Asia-Pacific region.
Washington’s propaganda campaign against China reinstates the willingness and insanity of provoking a war against a nation who has a relatively strong military force of over 2.3 million troops on land, sea and air including its own nuclear arsenal. Not to mention China is America’s creditor which means in short “don’t bite the hands that feeds you!” Washington’s aggressive foreign policy stance has accelerated since Obama got into the White House.
The Obama administration (and a possible Hillary Clinton presidency to follow) is also risking a possible conflict with Russia. In the Democratic National Convention, Hillary Clinton said that “I’m proud to stand by our allies in NATO against any threat they face, including from Russia” following the same path as her “Neocon” supporters. Clinton’s speech shows what she will most likely do in Washington and that is to risk countless lives to further advance U.S. strategic goals.
The elites or the “Armchair Warriors” (because they instigate war from the comfort of their mansions where they throw costume parties wearing animal heads or from their offices in the White House, Downing Street, Tel Aviv and the Pentagon) do not in any way fight wars themselves, but support and even lobby for war that benefits the Military-Industrial Complex. We can also call them “Chicken Hawks” which are those who support and advocate for war as many do in Washington, but avoid any form of military service or draft (Bill Clinton and George W. Bush) when called upon to serve. Washington’s politicians are quick to use their own populations for their military adventures who are mostly from poor and in some cases from the middle class and their favorite “undocumented immigrants” (who are promised American citizenships) from Latin America. The U.S military and the Washington-backed NATO troops are pawns of unwinnable wars that can escalate into a thermo-nuclear war between the U.S. and Russia.
Wall Street, the Military-Industrial Complex, corporations and the politicians are willing to lead the world into an Armageddon-type scenario. Washington is confident that they can defeat its adversaries with their military power but the U.S. has never faced countries like Russia, China or Iran. Russia has more advanced military technologies including its air and missile defense systems known as the S-500 which can counter any US-NATO missile or fighter jet at a moment’s notice. Irrational decisions made by Washington’s establishment means two things, first, they must be really politically and historically ignorant on Russia’s stance when it comes to its sovereignty and they must really despise humanity, but one thing is certain; they want the U.S. to remain as the world’s standing superpower. Wars after war, countless lives have been lost on all continents over the last 250 years or so. War is America’s pastime. Wars contribute to the spread of disease and famine. Countless Western interventions in the last 100 years alone have caused chaos, economic despair for many nations who lay victim to Western Imperial agendas.
From Banking to GMO’s: The Armchair Warriors want Humanity under their Control
The armchair warriors advocate for economic policies that essentially enslave humanity with their banking institutions such as Goldman Sachs, the Federal Reserve Bank, and the International Bank for International Settlements (BIS), JP Morgan Chase, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank. Goldman Sachs is one of the financial institutions that managed to steer the world into debt peonage. Jose Manuel Barroso was an EU bureaucrat and President of the European Commission was just hired by Goldman Sachs is a prime example of the revolving doors between government and corporations.
Why are we as human beings subjected to this madness and despair so that the top 1% can control our natural resources and our lives? Western politicians, top-level military men (General Breedlove), think tanks such as the Council of Foreign Relations (CFR) or the Heritage Foundation, the Main-Stream Media (MSM) and multinational corporations are leading the world to destruction and chaos. They advocate the need to control humanity’s healthcare with their prescription drugs and vaccines that hurt and kill thousands of people annually. They advocate for Genetically Modified foods (GMO’s) and support corporations such as Monsanto who are producing the unhealthiest foods for public consumption. GMO foods do lead to future health problems which do guarantee permanent patients so that Pharmaceutical corporations can continue to earn profits from their “legal” drugs. A monopoly made in Washington.
The West will Suffer Major Consequences of a Nuclear War
Russia and China are prepared for any confrontation with the United States if any peace agreement were to fail (obviously, Washington does not want peace). Russia will not hesitate to retaliate if Washington and its NATO patsies were foolish enough to launch a pre-emptive strike on Russian soil committing the world to a nuclear war. China recently announced that preparations are underway for any possible confrontation with the U.S. and any of its allies in The Global Times; a Chinese-government source clearly states what is at stake concerning U.S. maneuvers in the South China Sea:
China should speed up building its military capabilities of strategic deterrence. Even though China cannot keep up with the US militarily in the short-term, it should be able to let the US pay a cost it cannot stand if it intervenes in the South China Sea dispute by force. China is a peace-loving country and deals with foreign relations with discretion, but it won’t flinch if the US and its small clique keep encroaching on its interests on its doorstep. China hopes disputes can be resolved by talks, but it must be prepared for any military confrontation. This is common sense in international relations
Washington is also placing NATO Missile Defense Systems in Europe that threatens Russia. Russian President Vladimir Putin faced off with Journalists in the Saint Petersburg International Economic Forum on June 17th and said the following in regards to a possible war with the West:
The “Iranian Threat” does not exist but the NATO Missile Defense System is being positioned in Europe. That means we were right when we said that their reasons are not genuine, they were not being open with us. Always referring to the “Iranian Threat” in order to justify this system, once again they lied to us, now the system is functioning and being loaded with missiles. As you (Journalists) should know these missiles are put into capsules, which are used in the Tomahawk long range missile system.
So, these are being loaded with missiles that can penetrate territories within a 500km range, but we know that technologies advance, and we even know in which year the U.S. will accomplish the next missile…this missile will be able to penetrate distances of up to 1000km, and then even further… And from that moment on, they will start to directly threaten Russia’s nuclear potential.
We know year by year what’s going to happen, and they know that we know. It’s only you that they tell tall tales to, and you buy it, and spread it to the citizens of your countries. You people in turn do not feel a sense of the impending danger — this is what worries me.
“How do you not understand that the world is being pulled in an irreversible direction? While they pretend that nothing is going on. I don’t know how to get through to you anymore”
Washington’s insanity will for sure destroy Western civilization with Europe taking the first nuclear strikes when Russia retaliates after a U.S. led NATO strike. Are the armchair warriors going to the front lines to fight alongside US-NATO soldiers? Of course not because they have their pawns in place that will be killed or seriously maimed if a war or a nuclear war was to take place, but no worries because they have the pharmaceutical drugs that will heal your life crippling wounds. Not only is the Obama administration threatening Russia’s borders, Hillary Clinton has threatened Iran in the past with a nuclear strike against any action they may take against Israel or “violate” any terms within the nuclear deal between the P5 +1 (Russia, China, France, the UK and the U.S. plus Germany) and Iran in 2015. Is a nuclear war inevitable?
The Aftermath of a Nuclear War: The Top 1% and the Mission to Mars
In 2015, the main-stream media, in this case Newsweek published an article titled ‘Star Wars’ Class Wars: Is Mars the Escape Hatch for the 1 Percent? It claims that wealthy billionaires are planning an escape from planet earth and leave the rest of the human race behind:
It’s nice to know Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos have a plan. They will help the richest people in the world go to Mars and start over, leaving the other 99 percent to suffer on a dying, warring planet. The only solace for those of us left here will be that the Biebs should be prosperous enough to go with them
But those who have the political power and most of the world’s wealth at their disposal are in the midst of creating a plan to leave Earth in case of an apocalyptic scenario whether by a world war or an unstoppable life-threatening disease or any other catastrophe. They have it all figured out. The billionaire founder of Space X, Elon Musk and others like him have an ambitious dream and that is to colonize planet “Mars.” Yes, you heard this right the next planet closest to the sun. Maybe they want to step out into the sun and get an instant sun tan instead of heading out to their private beach or their local overpriced sun tan salons? Living on Mars does not seem like something the average human being would like to do at some point in their lives, maybe visit as a tourist but to live for the rest of their lives? I highly doubt it.
Perhaps Musk is not the only elite multi billionaire who would want to live on another planet or in space far away from the madness of our planet. Besides many of the financial and political elite created the situation that led to war, poverty and disease in the first place for their own benefit whether it was financial or political. According to an interesting article on Elon Musk’s vision of colonizing mars by www.science.com titled ‘Now Is the Time to Colonize Mars, Elon Musk Says’ quotes Musk who addressed an audience at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) and said “now is the first time in the history of Earth that the window is open, where it’s possible for us to extend life to another planet,” he continued “That window may be open for a long time — and hopefully it is — but it also may be open for a short time,” he added. “I think the wise move is to make life multiplanetary while we can.”
According to Newsweek, Musk wants humans to become a “multiplanet species” and maintain an outpost as an “insurance policy” if something catastrophic were to occur on earth:
Colonizing Mars has long been a passion of Musk’s. Indeed, the entrepreneur has repeatedly said that he founded SpaceX in 2002 primarily to help make humanity a multiplanet species. Having a self-sustaining outpost on the Red Planet would serve as an insurance policy, making humanity’s extinction unlikely even if something goes terribly awry here on Earth, Musk said Tuesday. Colonizing Mars would have other benefits as well, he added; the effort would greatly advance science discoveries and technological capabilities, and it would help inspire and excite people from all walks of life and from all around the globe
I do agree that colonizing mars would “advance science” but that is as far as I would go for such a project. Musk’s plan to send “people from all walks of life and around the globe” sounds nice but in all actuality is unrealistic. Who would reach Mars? Those with wealth and fortune from mainly the West not the 99 percent will get to go to Mars (and of course if you are willing to live the rest of your life on the red planet).
Hollywood has produced several films on the subject on the concept of living in space, whether on another planet or on a spaceship (Star Trek). The 2013 film “Elysium” starring Matt Damon as a former convict named Max da Costa who works on an assembly line for a company that produces weapons and robots that monitors Earth under a police state controlled by Elysium, a spaceship that circles in the Earth’s orbit. Elysium is home to the ultra rich and politically powerful and under the supervision of the Secretary of Defense ‘Delacourt’ played by Jodie Foster (who reminds me of Hillary Clinton). The film takes place in the year 2154; Earth is “overpopulated” with all of the people living in extreme poverty and starvation with no technology or a healthcare system to cure them from sicknesses and life-threatening diseases. Elysium has all the technology for their own people (the ultra rich and the political establishment) that can prolong their lives in relative comfort while humans who live on earth suffer from various diseases. I will not tell you about how the film ends. However, the film examines how those in power would control planet earth from space with surveillance systems that monitor human activity along with robots and drones to keep the order in place. The film depicts the future of humanity living under a dictatorship while rotating the earth’s orbit. I would not at all be surprised that some of the elitists in Western circles would jump on an opportunity to control earth from a spaceship.
War and Chaos Really Scares the Elites
Creating chaos is orchestrated by those in power who have enormous influence in the financial, military and political sectors of society. It is quite bizarre in understanding how the global elite would want to dominate the world and control humanity so that they can enjoy their vast fortunes and power of control because they are entitled to because of who they are. The elite or the armchair warriors want to enslave society with their financial manipulations which they call “capitalism” or more like “Crony Capitalism.” Chaos is a formula for restoring order, an order that imposes control over people. We can also say that it is a divide and conquer strategy which allows the rulers to control both sides of the fight. Once they lose that control, they panic for their own safety. Isn’t that pathetic? They start the wars, impose debt slavery on the population and then social unrest becomes uncontrollable. So what is the solution for the elites? Live on a distant planet because the environment they created on Earth is now far too dangerous for them to cope with.
Personally, I prefer planet earth as to living on Mars; I would not want to live on Mars even if it was remotely possible. I like planet earth, its beautiful oceans and lakes, its people, its beaches and its various cultures etc. Mars is a dream for Musk and it won’t happen anytime soon. For now New Zealand might be their only option. An interesting article by The Guardian in 2015 with a headline title that says it all ‘As inequality soars, the nervous super rich are already planning their escapes’ regarding an interview at the Davos Economic Forum with Economist Robert Johnson, president of the Institute of New Economic Thinking said that “I know hedge fund managers all over the world who are buying airstrips and farms in places like New Zealand because they think they need a getaway.” The “armchair Warriors” or the “chicken hawks” or whatever you prefer to call them have been in preparation for an economic depression, social unrest or a nuclear war for some time because of the situations they themselves created. Humanity needs to stop these maniacs from destroying us and we can by continuing to inform the public on the dangers of US-NATO and Israeli alliance and its network of vassal states (including Gulf State Monarchies for example) who pose the real threat to humanity. I do believe that we can win this battle and that the criminal elitist cabal who rule our earth will face an unprecedented resistance in the months and years to come. I am optimistic. There is still time and hope for a peaceful solution to emerge, but time is running out.
