Just as Obama keeps ratcheting up the allegations that Russia will hack the elections to ensure Trump wins, in Russia they are warning their citizens that war is coming and it maybe nuclear. They are warning that NATO is retrofitting tactical aircraft for the use of nuclear weapons, “which is sign of preparation for war with Russia”. A whole website has gone up in Russia dedicated to the World War III and one offering advice and how to prepare.
ABC News is reporting that Russian Television Warns of Nuclear War Amid US Tensions. US mainstream press is not questioning what is going on when we have a President who got the Noble Peace Prize. They are not looking at Obama floating all sorts of stories that a Trump victory will be proof of a Russian cyber attack. The Washington Post pitches the story that Russia wants war. Meanwhile The Daily Mail reports that the Kremlin calls Joe Biden’s threat to ‘cyber strike’ Russia ‘unprecedented’ and pledges to protect itself from the “aggressive, unpredictable United States”. CNN has reported that Russia and the US have moved past a Cold War to unpredictable confrontation.
Personally, I was just a kid in 1962. But I remember walking with my friends discussing the Cuban Missile Crisis which lasted for a 13-day period (October 16–28, 1962). That was the closest we had come to World War III until today. Confrontation between the United States and the Soviet Union concerning Soviet ballistic missile deployment in Cuba even made kids pay attention. Along with being televised worldwide, it was the closest the Cold War came to escalating into a full-scale nuclear war. A 8.6 year plot from that event completed the 51.6 year wave terrifyingly on schedule – 2014.
It was 2014 when the new Cold War began with sanctions imposed on Russia by Obama. It has not worked to move the Russian people to overthrow Putin. This policy only escalated the entire confrontation starting the new Cold War. The solution was simple. Divide Ukraine between East and West and the Eastern Russian speaking people join Russia. The people should have decided – not bureaucrats in Washington.
Sorry to say, this latest confrontation is precisely on time.
