“The beginnings of wars are often hard to identify. Which act lit the spark on the tinderbox? Which straw was the final one? Like peak oil itself, the beginnings of war are often visible only in retrospect.”
For example, some would argue that World War II began in 1939 with the German invasion of Poland. Others would pick the 1931 Japanese invasion of Manchuria, or maybe even the 1933 Reichstag Fire. The only consensus regarding World War II is that it was devastating.
As for World War III, some believe that it was the Cold War and that we are in the beginning stages of World War IV. They believe that it started with the invasion of Iraq, and will be completely realized when the United States and Israel begin their attack on Iran and Syria.
Some reference the confrontation between Israel and Palestine at the turn of the century as the start. Others state that the First Gulf War was the “opening guns of World War III. Others, specifically, Miles Copeland, Jr. who was one of the founding members of the Office of Strategic Services, the predecessor of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), predicted in 1989 that World War III would begin when the United States and Israel get duped by Russia into starting a self-destructive war – referred to as a crusade by some – with the Muslim world. (shades of Albert Pike’s 3 world wars)
Start of World War III
Whichever truth you choose to believe, since they are all relevant and valid in their own right, the fact is that according to the mainstream media, World War III (or IV) has already begun.
So when exactly did World War III start?
In early May of 2006, the president of the United States, George W Bush, the commander in chief of the United States Military, stated that 2001 was the beginning of World War III. His remarks were confirmed by Dan Gillerman, at the time Israel’s UN Ambassador, when he also acknowledged during a routine UN Security Council meeting on 30 May 2006 that World War III had already begun.
Map of the New Middle East
As to what the objective of this war is for some of its conspirators? The most likely purpose is twofold: to create the New Map of the Middle East, and to maintain the status quo of Western economic dominance over global financial markets. A lot more on the economics of war later, for now, let’s focus on the new map of the Middle East.

*(Any critical review of The past decade will show that the “War on Terror” and the military conflicts in the Middle east and Eurasia (Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran) Are simply the peices being assembled around what Brezinski termed “The Grand Chessboard” of future Resource wars. But Here in Amerika the official propaganda will never outright admit to such aims, instead we are given the ludicrous excuse of fighting multiple wars for “Freedom, and “Democracy” and Wars for “Peace”, which is kind of like fucking to save virginity.)
The level of existing and potential military threats for Russia may increase significantly by 2030, and wars for natural resources should be expected, General Staff chief Col. Gen. Valery Gerasimov said on Thursday.The level of military threats will be linked to the struggle among the world’s leading powers for fuel and energy resources, markets and “living space,” he said, adding that military capability will be actively used to ensure access to those resources.
Military experts, however, were unimpressed by Gerasimov’s presentation, with some dismissing his remarks as repetitive and his ideas as banal.“Everything that we heard at this event has been said a million times before to different audiences
(In Russia probably yes.. But in Amerika, the population beleives that War is fought for their “right” to eat a fucking Big Mac)
What’s happening in Syria is part of a bigger picture, a grand chessboard if you’d like, and what’s happening there is definitely not the end game. United States involvement in Syria has nothing to do with a repressive regime. After all, in 2002 the United States willingly used Assad’s regime to torture Maher Arar, a Canadian citizen, when they renditioned him to Syria from New York. The world was also quite grateful to Syria for accepting 1.5 million refugees created by the US invasion of Iraq.
Irrelevant if Assad stays in power or the rebels take control, what’s important to know about Syria is that an attack on Syria is an attack on Iran and a threat to the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) – a mutual security organization founded in 2001, which “includes not only the two giants Russia and China, but also the energy-rich Central Asian states Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Tajikistan.”. In 2006 Syria signed a defense agreement with Iran. With this agreement Iran “considers Syria’s security its own security,” and its defense capabilities to be those of Syria. This means that an attack on Syria is an attack on Iran, and Iran is a much more formidable foe than Syria. Not because of Iran’s military capabilities but because of its diplomatic ties to the regional countries.
If the United States attacks Syria, which it has threatened to do, it will force it into a military confrontation with Iran. If this occurs, it is very unlikely that the SCO, especially the two most influential members Russia and energy strapped China, will stand idly by.
Or World war 3 could be the grand plan all along to unite the world in a ProtoFascist One world governmnet, according to some the plans have been in place for some time. Regardless of that speculation the fact is that there is a larger conflict looming,The western powers are being rivaled by alliances in the Eastern world, Imperialsim is alive and well in the 21st century.
So much for the “good guy’s” winning the valiant war of Terror, Uh I mean ON Terror. Because our military would never be as evil as those scary “Terrerists”. They would never kill innocent people for any reason whatsoever. When Soldiers would rather kill themselves than be forced to kill others for this country, that should tell you something wrong is going on over there
In 2012 alone, the number of suicides among active duty military personnel is higher than the casualty rate of the war being fought in Afghanistan. Shockingly, from the beginning of January 2012 to the month of September, suicidal death counts exceed wartime deaths.
Overall there have been 247 alleged suicides in 2012, however only 158 are officially confirmed and 89 remain under analysis. Besides suicides, according to the Brookings Institute, 222 soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan this year as of Sept. 28th; obviously creating a difference of 25 deaths, which leave many Americans stunned.Specifically in September, the U.S. Army confirmed 15 suicides, just about the same number as August’s results with 16. July had one of the highest suicidal rates with 26 deaths, almost one suicide per day.

Why get your hands dirty, and feel guilty for slaughtering another human being. When you can just get a machine to do it for you? Welcome to War inc. New and improved, sanitized and squeeky clean.
Leon Panetta Says Obama Admin Will Seek “International Permission” To Attack Syria, not Congressional permission. And they will “inform” Congress what their plans are.
I guess they forgot about this
Article I, Section 8, Clause 11 of the United States Constitution, sometimes referred to as the War Powers Clause, vests in the Congress the power to declare war, in the following wording:
[Congress shall have Power…] To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water;
Get yourselves ready for another (yes another) illegal Military police action, or more simply put a War based on lies, Half truth’s and Imperialism. If it’s not Syria, then they’ll try the same thing with Iran, Hell I wouldn’t be surprised if they go for both at the same time.
Just remember, this is’nt for the freedom, liberty and the Well being of America, or even any other nation that’s being “liberated”. This is for Greed, Profits and Dominance
Worry about a possible Israeli attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities — and perhaps U.S. involvement in another war — boiled over last night at one of President Obama’s fundraisers.
“Use your leadership!” a woman yelled at Obama. “No war in Iran!”
“Nobody has announced a war, young lady,” Obama responded to applause.
“But we appreciate your sentiment,” the president added. “You’re jumping the gun a little bit there.”
So Basically he’s not denying the inevitable, and he’s not denying that it’s not part of the agenda either. All this talk about “leading through our moral example” is a smokescreen, spouting off the plattitudes of “democracy” while your freedoms are slowly taken away here from under your nose. This guy is a slick talking snakeoil salesman, but at least he’s honest here saying that this lady is “jumping the gun”. There’s no War in Iran….At least not yet
