Saker reports that Russia is preparing for World War III, not because
Russia intends to initiate aggression but because Russia is alarmed
by the hubris and arrogance of the West, by the demonization of
Russia, by provocative military actions by the West, by American
interference in the Russian province of Chechnya and in former
Russian provinces of Ukraine and Georgia, and by the absence of any
restraint from Western Europe on Washington’s ability to foment

the Saker understands the reckless irresponsibility of convincing
Russia that the United States intends to attack her.
is extraordinary to see the confidence that many Americans place in
their military’s ability. After 15 years the US has been unable to
defeat a few lightly armed Taliban, and after 13 years the situation
in Iraq remains out of control. This is not very reassuring for the
prospect of taking on Russia, much less the strategic alliance
between Russia and China. The US could not even defeat China, a Third
World country at the time, in Korea 60 years ago.

collection of crazed stupid fools likely to bring vaporization to the
United States and all of Europe.
weapons systems are far superior to American ones. American weapons
are produced by private companies for the purpose of making vast
profits. The capability of the weapons is not the main concern. There
are endless cost overruns that raise the price of US weapons into
outer space. The F-35 fighter, which is less capable than the F-15 it
is supposed to replace, costs between $148 million and $337 million
per fighter, depending on whether it is an Air Force, Marine Corps,
is entirely possible that the world is being led to destruction by
nothing more than the greed of the US military-security complex.
Delighted that the reckless and stupid Obama regime has resurrected
the Cold War, thus providing a more convincing “enemy” than the
hoax terrorist one, the “Russian threat” has been restored to its
20th century role of providing a justification for bleeding the
American taxpayer, social services, and the US economy dry in behalf
of profits for armament manufacturers.
this time Washington’s rhetoric accompanying the revived Cold War
is far more reckless and dangerous, as are Washington’s actions,
than during the real Cold War. Previous US presidents worked to
defuse tensions. The Obama regime has inflated tensions with lies and
reckless provocations, which makes it far more likely that the new
Cold War will turn hot. If Killary gains the White House, the world
is unlikely to survive her first term.
of America’s wars except the first—the war for independence—were
wars for Empire. Keep that fact in mind as you hear the Memorial Day
bloviations about the brave men and women who served our country in
its times of peril. The United States has never been in peril, but
Washington has delivered peril to numerous other countries in its
pursuit of hegemony over others.
for the first time in its history the US faces peril as a result of
Washington’s attempts to assert hegemony over Russia and China.

stupidity. Moreover, these two countries are not the native American

slaughter of the buffalo.

the Philippines and called the theft a “liberation.”

vastness of the Pacific and Asia.

came to the war.

insouciant American population preoccupied with selfies and delusions
of military prowess, while its crazed government picks a fight with
Russia and China, has no future.
