What would World War III look like? How would you know it was underway? Would it resemble Hitler’s Germany trying to conquer the world? Would you recognize it without the facts being laid out for you? Do you think propaganda would be used to sway public opinion? And what about the use of chemicals on the people to make them docile and apathetic? How about laws passed that would classify you as an enemy of the state if you dared to stand against the power structure? Or an increase in domestic policies which limit your individual liberty for “security purposes”? What of the militarization of a civilian police force, complete with the laws protecting their aggression against an unwary populace?
America: a police state surveillance society
Given the scenarios I just cited, what country comes to mind? 1930s Nazi Germany, perhaps? It’s said a picture is worth a thousand words and I can make my case in this article using only pictures, so imagine how many words that case would amount to. I urge you to do an image search for some of the points I’ll cover and see for yourself the assertions I am pressing. I have spent much time arguing that America has become a police state surveillance society and for anybody who has looked into it, I think that has become apparent, with cameras on every corner and drones in the skies. With laws that allow for you to be treated like a criminal, while you have no way to opt out or even fight back. With propaganda and pop culture that reinforces the enslavement of Americans, boasting that it is somehow patriotic to comply with authority. With the civilian police force being armed as if they are ready to go to war, with armored personnel carriers sporting multiple port holes for simply sticking the barrel of a machine gun out and firing—without even aiming. Can anybody think of a reason why a small municipal police force in America would need such a vehicle?
And what of the creation of a centralized national “defense” department that now seems to be preparing for offense, not defense, with the Department of Homeland Security arming itself to the teeth by recently purchasing over 4-1/2 billion rounds of ammunition. Billion. These, incidentally, are mostly hollow point tipped, which are more expensive than standard ammunition and most certainly not intended for target practice, as some have claimed. Why? What of laws such as the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act), which now allows for American citizens to be indefinitely detained and/or assassinated without a trial by jury—Habeas Corpus evidently being a protection of the past—permitting any American to be black-bagged, taken away, and possibly never heard from again. But I digress. This article is intended to make the case that World War III has already begun. I think the case is clear from the domestic side that Americans have been placed under lock and key and if they do not comply with their open slavery then they will be put in a cage by people that are “just following orders.”
Such are bold statements with which to begin a piece, but can the case really be made that WWIII has begun? If that is indeed a reality, how would you know? Would the propaganda on television and radio tell you? Can you count on the mainstream media to inform you of our true condition? The same media that have been caught lying so many times that there is no way to even keep track at this point. How about the pop-culture society that frowns on critical thinking and revels in people acting as dumb and as ridiculous as possible? It seems pretty clear that the only way to judge this is by looking at the facts. Simply reviewing some maps and placing into context the sovereign nations that the US military has had engagements with just in recent years should lend much credence to my argument. Set aside the claim that many people do not agree with the official narrative of the events of September 11, 2001. Whether you agree with the narrative that was fed to the American people or not, I will lay out the facts that are now undeniable, and you can draw your own conclusions. Now that I have covered the domestic policies that have been put into place as a result of this “post 9/11 world,” let’s turn our attention to US foreign policy, shall we?
US foreign policy suggests an ongoing world war
The stated and “reported” prime objective of the war on—not in—Afghanistan was to capture Osama bin Laden, the individual allegedly responsible for the attacks on September 11, 2001, and to destroy the militant “network” of Al-Qaeda. In reality, the US and UK launched a full-scale military deployment to the region a few months before the attacks on America, and the allies began the invasion of Afghanistan a few weeks before 9/11. All of this information can be found easily online if one takes the time to look. The mainstream media outlets were extremely successful in selling their version of how the events unfolded and the American people bought that tale hook, line, and sinker. This was possibly one of the most expansive and most successful operations of propaganda put forth and carried out in history—and it went off without a hitch. No “advanced cave fortresses” were ever found, and the cultivation and production of the poppy fields continue to rise exponentially every year, now that the US military is in control of the fields, instead of the Taliban. On May 2, 2011, Osama bin Laden was reportedly captured and his body thrown into the ocean without the world seeing any evidence whatsoever. All the public at large was provided by the US were words, words from proven liars. Why? Footage of bin Laden’s corpse might insight more violence and put people in danger. At least, that’s what we were told by the proven liars.
The stated and reported mission for war on Iraq was to disarm Saddam Hussein, even though there was literally no evidence whatsoever to suggest he was developing or hiding weapons of mass destruction. The US government had plans to invade Iraq at least as early as April 2001, six months before September 11th. The officially stated motive was to improve Western access to Iraqi oil—the world’s second largest supply of the black gold. I don’t know if Americans have acquired a better understanding in the last couple of years, but just three years ago most interviewed or polled thought that Iraq had played a role in 9/11. I hope that it goes without saying that to date there isn’t any evidence that ties Iraq to 9/11, and to my understanding, I don’t think anyone even tries to make that case.
Tens of thousands of Iraqis were killed in the initial strikes against Iraq in what was promoted to be “the Mother of all wars.” Those killed were mostly women and children and just those initial numbers amounted to more than three times the death toll of 9/11. The “officials” try selling the story that the war is over, but when people are still dying and American soldiers are still being paid to occupy foreign soil, I think it’s clear that the war is not over, even though Saddam Hussein was executed by hanging on December 30, 2006. The images of Hussein’s body were shown on Iraqi television and his execution can be viewed on the internet to this day. Yet it’s difficult to obtain an exact number of US military bases that are now located in Iraq and Afghanistan, let alone across the planet, mainly because there are many factors that cause those numbers to change. One thing that is clear—going by just the confirmed military bases and inspecting a map—is that Iran is now strategically surrounded by the US military.
Shifting a bit west, we remember that on October 20, 2011, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi was killed after 42 years of rule in Libya. The question of how the Gaddafi regime went from “a model” and “an important ally” to the next target for regime change in a period of just a few years is one that demands an answer. Many speculate that Gaddafi’s calling for African and Muslim nations to join together to create a new currency that would rival the US Dollar and the Euro is to blame. This arrangement would have literally shifted the balance of the world economy, and many believe that prospect is what eventually led to the colonel’s demise. Gaddafi obviously drew the attention of the central bankers that control the global monetary system when he openly stated that he wanted to stop selling Libyan oil for US dollars. You see, no one is to challenge the Petrodollar. Within months Gaddafi was accused of genocide, which served as justification for NATO forces to set the stage for his murder, and that is exactly what happened.
There exist at least four videos showing the battered and bloody Libyan ruler near death, and perhaps one video taken after his death, all of which were shown on “news” outlets across the world and are still easily accessible online. Another interesting note, given current events, is that former NTC head of foreign intelligence Rami al-Obeidi stated that “French intelligence played a direct role in the death of Gaddafi, including his killing,” and claiming that Bashar al-Assad of Syria sold Gaddafi’s satellite telephone number to French spies operating in Sirte in exchange for a “grace period” and decreased political pressure on the Syrian government by France. Perhaps that “grace period” has expired as the Western power allies take turns in conquering country after country.
A plan to “take out” seven countries in five years
At this point in my article I would direct you to look at a map and take note of the locations, sizes, and strategic advantages of the recently-invaded nations, and put all of that into context with everything else that I’ve laid out. Then NATO Supreme Allied Commander General Wesley Clark went on record in 2007 stating that he was told only 10 days after 9/11 that the US armed forces were going to war with Iraq, and then proceeded to assert that he was also told that the US was going to “take out seven countries in five years,” starting with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and finally, Iran. It’s uncertain whether General Clark relayed all the countries in the precise order in which he was told them, but given that, I would also have to conclude that a plan of that scale would be very difficult to execute correctly in every detail—not to mention the added complications of adhering to the stated timeline.
Clark’s statement is not one that should be taken lightly. Setting aside the fact that we have a military general admitting this on record, let’s examine how accurate Clark’s statement has turned out to be. At the time he was apparently relayed the information, bombing was already underway in Afghanistan, and after that, Iraq and Libya. Let’s move on to Lebanon and its neighbor to the north, Syria. I mention these two next because of their strategic positions and the recent events involving them. As of the second week of September 2013, it looks as though the US military could strike Syria any day now. But why? Nobody seems to have a clue as to why, but reading this article might place you ahead of the curve. In comparison to the other countries in this region of the world, Syria is a geographical behemoth, with tiny Lebanon illustrating this. So what do these countries have to offer other than more resources, spoils of war, and an opportunity to feed the US’s military-industrial-congressional complex? If the US occupied these areas, it would secure access to the Mediterranean Sea from Israel to Turkey and lock down all the land from the border of the sea to Israel all the way to Iraq. Sounds like a land grab for strategic advantage if I’ve ever seen one.
As for the other countries, I can report that while investigating this story I decided to look at militarily strategic countries in the Middle East and noticed that the set extends even beyond the ones that General Wesley Clark referenced in 2007. Not only did I research all of the countries previously mentioned, including Somalia and Sudan, which were on the general’s list, but also Yemen, Oman, and Pakistan. I can report that there have been military strikes in every single one of these nations. So with Egypt in the middle of revolution and chaos—and who can know what is really happening there?—it seems that every other country in this region is either an “ally” and in compliance with the US government, or is or has been attacked by the US military, whether by ground troops and armored vehicles, or drone strikes. Make no mistake about it, a drone strike qualifies as an act of war, and if you’ve been brainwashed to the point where you disagree, think about a relative or children you know being killed by a remote controlled aircraft operated from a foreign country somewhere because the “pilots” claimed a “moral obligation” to conduct that operation.
If Russia is Syria’s number one arms supplier and the US now wants to arm the “rebels,” whoever the rebels really are, you have to ask how long until Russia and China step in, especially now that the US has driven a wedge between Russia and China and all of Africa.
So has World War III been underway for a while? Is it just now reaching an end game? Can anybody even claim to have the moral high ground? I don’t have the answers, but the questions don’t get any more serious than this. It’s time people start putting everything they have ever known to be true into perspective and make sure they truly know the difference between “right” and “wrong.”
