The March to World War III
By Benjamin Baruch
April 20, 2017
The election of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States was a watershed moment in American political history. Never before has an acting president been so vilified by the mainstream media while at the same time opposed by the political establishment within both parties. The Democratic Party along with establishment Republicans have resisted Trump’s every move while the main stream media nightly twists and distorts his every word.
The Trump presidency has also witnessed dramatic changes in America’s national consciousness. From the introduction of the genre of “Fake News” to allegations of Russian interference in the national election or Russian collusion with members of the Trump administration, the general public’s trust in American institutions is being eroded. The evening news contains an almost nightly display of an unending cacophony of Trump gaffes, missteps and misconceptions. If anyone seriously doubted the power of the establishment elite to resist true reform or the fraudulent bias of the mainstream media, the election of President Trump has put to rest any such questions.
On the 6th of April 2017, everything changed as the President’s decision to authorize a missile strike against Syria silenced his critics. Suddenly even the most vocal adversaries were supporting this decision. The almost unanimous support for the military strike in Syria tips the hand of the Deep State. No matter how much the liberal left or the establishment power brokers of the belt-way may have hated Trump, his military adventures in Syria have drawn almost universal praise. The establishment clearly supports military confrontation as the new American foreign policy in both the Middle East and the Korean peninsula. The only unanswered question is why.
The Syrian civil war had its origins in the 2011 Arab Spring. The six years of conflict has succeeded in destroying entire cities while uprooting millions of refuges. Now the Syrian civil war threatens to draw both superpowers into direct confrontation. On September 30th, 2015 the Russian military began air operations in support of the Assad government with a series of air strikes against both ISIS and the anti-Assad Free Syrian Army (FSA). The United States had been supplying factions of the FSA who, along with ISIS, comprise the main forces prosecuting the civil war against Syria’s Shiite government.
Elements of the FSA have been designated as “Al Qaeda affiliates by the United Nations.” 1 Both Al Qaeda and ISIS are Sunni Muslim factions with the support of US allies in the region including Saudi Arabia while Syria and its ally Iran, both Shiite states, are the allies of the Communist nations. In other words, the United States along with the UK and other NATO allies have been knowingly supporting
Syrian rebel factions which are comprised of Al Qaeda and ISIS members while at the same time bombing Al Qaeda and ISIS forces in Iraq.
For the first time on Trump’s watch, the United States has become directly involved in the Syrian civil war with its attack against Assad forces following the recent chemical attack on civilians. President Trump campaigned on a non-interventionist platform that opposed the “Neo-con” militarism of the Bush era. The President had also publicly opposed military intervention in Syria by the Obama administration following the first chemical attacks against civilians in 2014. Sadly, US foreign policy is once again following the “Neo-con” agenda of Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld.
Both Russia and Iran responded declaring any further American military action in Syria would be viewed as ‘crossing a red line’ threatening military retaliation should the US intervene again. The UK’s Daily Mail reported “The Kremlin has warned the US it is ‘one step from war' over Syria - but the Trump administration hit back by saying it would be prepared to carry out airstrikes again.” 2 Russian Prime Minister Medvedev commented: “This military action is a clear indication of the US president’s extreme dependency on the views of the Washington establishment, the one that the new president strongly criticized in his inauguration speech.” 3
Vladimir Putin also denounced the US missile strikes as “an illegal act of aggression against a sovereign nation.”4 In response, Putin ordered the Russian warship, the Admiral Grigorovich, to Syrian waters and promised to upgrade Syrian missile defenses. Russia also terminated its communication hot-line with US forces established to avoid any confrontation between Russian and US aircraft over Syrian airspace. Putin then made the astonishing claim that the US is planning to fake chemicals weapons attacks during a joint press conference with the Italian President Sergio Mattarella. 5
Jeffrey Nyquist, a co-author of the book, The New Tactics of Global War, commented on the Syrian attack saying: “Russia and her allies are enemies of the US anyway. The real problem here is why would we pick a fight when our enemy is near peak strength and we have been weakened by eight years of Obama? Frankly, it's stupid. Children are killed in half a dozen countries every day, some of them by our bombs. This maudlin declaration by the president about ‘dead babies’ is a self-misunderstanding. A few days ago one of our bombs in Iraq went awry and killed 200 civilians. Good grief! Does it matter whether a baby dies from sarin gas or from US bomb fragments? I don't think it matters to the baby. Dead is dead. This whole thing is irrational, and our leaders need to talk sense. It's all sickening.” 6
Further evidence that the world is moving closer to war was reported by the UK Express on 15 April, 2017 stating that Putin has ordered “a mass mobilization of military forces in Vladivostok, Russia, just eight miles from the border with North
Korea.” 7 This report comes as North Korea warned they are prepared for all-out war with the US.
Russia, Syria and Iran have issued several blunt warnings that any further air strikes in Syria would result in “grave consequences” for the United States. In the face of these heightened tensions, the United States announced plans to launch a pre-emptive strike against North Korea should it be necessary.
The world is now witnessing the final stage of pre-war preparations. The communists have always planned to use North Korea as a trip wire for war with the West. As the current tensions escalate, military experts believe that war could begin on the Korean peninsula before summer. Russia and China have also begun full scale mobilizations, and experts in Europe are now warning that a world war could come as soon as fall.
Donald Trump has warned that “North Korea is looking for trouble”, insisting that if China does not decide to help the US “will solve the problem without them”. 8 The US President made this extraordinary statement on Twitter, his warnings backed up by sending a US carrier battle group to the area.
The general public in the West assumes the United States is a lone super power and therefore can act unilaterally without serious consequence. The thought that US forces might be defeated by the communist nations is dismissed as absurd. Unfortunately, this confidence in American military supremacy is no longer based upon reality, and rather now relies upon hubris alone. The belief that the US remains the world’s lone superpower is seriously misplaced as the balance of military power has shifted dramatically over the last fifteen years only no one bothered to inform the American public. The US no longer holds a clear upper hand in today’s conventional or nuclear battlefield.
Russia and their communist allies are now armed with new 5th generation weapons including hypersonic missiles and Russia has surrounded itself with an impenetrable ABM missile shield. These new weapons have shifted the balance of power decidedly in our enemies’ favor. Russian defenses include the S-500, a dual purpose ABM and anti-aircraft missile system. This is a war winning weapon to which the US has no counter measures and which may place the US in a position of nuclear blackmail, should a conventional war erupt. To state this bluntly, Russian defensive capabilities can likely stop a US ICBM attack, while the US is defenseless against a similar Russian strike.
World War III is coming and the US is likely to suffer catastrophic losses. Deagel.com, a research group which tracks worldwide military equipment procurements, forecasts the US will suffer a population loss of 260 million along with a collapse in US GDP off 95% by 2018.9
The Final phase of the Overture
The communist military strategy against the West was developed over many decades of planning. The final pre-war phase is called “the overture” and includes the unveiling of former soviet spies among us as the Communists intentionally expose their own agents. This final act is designed to further demoralize the American people and destroy any remaining trust in US political institutions.
These US actors who supported the Soviet cause will be killed in the war anyway, so their final value to the communist war effort is to uncover them, and to thereby use the news as part of a final demoralization of the US public. The recent disclosure by Russian agents on Ukrainian TV that Henry Kissinger was a Soviet agent is consistent with this type of pre-war action as was the recent disclosure of Ernest Hemingway as a Soviet agent.
Russian war preparations move into final phase
We are witnessing unprecedented pre-war military moves by Russia and China. A full mobilization appears underway. Russian military officials have been stating publicly on Russian TV that nuclear war with the US is coming. Anti-American propaganda began to dominate Russian political news in earnest beginning in 2014. Preparing the domestic population for war is the first requirement according to Russian military doctrine. Mass mobilization is the final stage and appears to have started. S-400 and S-500 deployments are now occurring around Moscow.
Russian military officials recently told the Russian population they could plant nuclear warheads near the US coastline and destroy US coastal cities. Statements such as this are designed to calm down the Russian population which has become alarmed after 4 years of consistent war propaganda. At the same time, the US news is now filled daily with accusations that US officials are Putin supporters or have had inappropriate contact with Russian officials. A leading Ukraine general stated he believed Russia would attack Europe in September.
China has also begun mobilizing troops on their border with North Korea, allegedly for the purpose of adding negotiating leverage to their promise to President Trump to reign in North Korea. China doesn’t need military troops to pressure North Korea which is 100% dependent on China for critical war sustaining imports such as oil. The purpose of these troop mobilizations is more likely to join the conflict in support of North Korea at some point, or to occupy the entire peninsula at the conclusion of the war after both the South and the North have destroyed each other.
Large scale mobilizations are very expensive and not undertaken lightly. Once mobilized over this summer, Russian forces would have to either initiate conflict and invade Europe or stand down. It is not practicable for forces to dig in for a harsh winter in rural terrain. They would either stand down or be used. Standing
down makes the mobilization a pointless and costly error. That is why Russian generals have made the statement – “mobilization is war.”
New US weapon developments - accelerating the push to World War
The electromagnetic rail gun under development by the US Navy can accelerate a 23 pound projectile to Mach 7 within ten milliseconds. 10 This weapon uses only magnetic force to accelerate projectiles with such velocity they don’t require explosive ordinances. It is capable of hitting targets over one hundred miles away with an impact equal to that of two million pounds moving at 100 miles per hour. 11 New super lasers are under development which can destroy incoming missiles using only thermal energy. These futuristic weapons have the potential of shifting the balance of power back to the US and are planned for operational deployment over the next few years. These weapons may eliminate virtually all of the current military advantage of Russian and Chinese forces, thus making the risk of war in the near future all the more likely.
Global nuclear war is possible by this fall
North Korea will likely be the trigger and would act as a diversionary war in the Far East drawing US forces into conflict on the Korean peninsula where they would be unable to support commitments in Europe or defend the US homeland. War in Korea could come as soon as May of 2017. A regional war in Korea would destroy much of the North and South’s military capabilities and open the door for China to occupy the entire peninsula.
The end of the Age is upon us
The opening act of the book of Revelation begins with the appearances of the four horsemen, with the first a rider on a White Horse wearing a crown and with a bow in his hands, who goes forth conquering. He is followed by a Red Horse of war which ushers in the Black Horse of global famine and total economic collapse.
Scholars have debated the meaning of these symbols for years, yet the scripture tells us the true meaning of the prophecies would be sealed up until the time of the end. That time is upon us now. The identity of the rider on the White Horse should have never been that difficult for he also lives in a White House, and the agenda which has been followed in the United States since the Bush / Clinton / Bush era has been to pursue the destabilization of the American centered world replacing it with a New World Order.
The Obama presidency was used to finish this task, reducing American military power to levels reminiscent of the pre-WWII period while placing a tombstone on the grave of America’s Christian culture. History will remember the Obama legacy as one of betrayal, setting up America for the ultimate double cross – a
surprise attack by our communist ‘friends’. Now a new American president has promised to “Make America Great Again” and to restore America’s military dominance but America’s enemies want nothing of the sort.
Confronted by an America beginning to rearm itself, the communists are left with choosing between pursuing the war now or allowing America to deploy its latest military technologies which will tilt the balance of power to their disadvantage. The reason why the Deep State supports the war agenda escapes the understanding of most observers. The simple truth is the globalists who rule the shadow government “hate America” for she stands in the way of their plans for a One World government. It is for that reason they intend to “burn her cities with fire” 12 and they are about to turn loose the Red Horse of war to start the conflagration.
The true identity of the Red Horse of the book of Revelation is also quite simple. They are the “Reds” and they will start World War III which is the battle of Ezekiel 38 in Bible prophecy. It is this war that destroys the existing world order, opening the door for the One World government of the anti-Christ.
We don’t have much time left.
J. R. Nyquist and I co-authored the book, The New Tactics of Global War to uncover what is really happening behind the today’s news headlines, and to prove to a skeptical American public why after the Cold War, Russia remains the number one threat to the United States. Most Americans believe Islamic extremism is the number one threat to the West, but the greater threat is from the nation where all of this began almost seventy years ago.
I will leave you with the following brilliant commentary on the continuing Communist threat from J.R. Nyquist:
“It is important (from the communist point of view) that nobody guess the actual situation, that nobody see how far the subversion has gone, or how powerful the communist side has become. While Obama was US President an identical circumstance played out in Washington as in Moscow. In both capitals the communists were depicted as an inconsiderable and irrelevant minority. In reality, the presidents of both countries were committed communists. The levers of power were in their hands, and the world suspected nothing. While Obama worked to disarm the United States, Putin worked to rearm Russia. While Obama undercut our allies abroad, Putin invaded Crimea and intervened in the Middle East. As the danger grew, as Hillary Clinton was sure to be the next and final president, the collaboration between Washington and Moscow was guaranteed to result in America's defeat.
“But then a miracle happened. Donald Trump was elected president; a man of impeccable nationalist instinct, of remarkable courage in the face of the enemy. The communists were aghast at his victory. And so, strange as it seems,
they decided on a preposterous fraud. While they posed as Russia's enemies, Donald Trump would be depicted as Russia's friend.
“For the leading communists to deny their communist affiliation was a preliminary strategic step in both Washington and Moscow. Freed from the label of what they had actually been, the communists were able to advance without opposition from those annoying anti-communists. And now they are compelled by the logic of their false position to paint the ‘patriotic American’ (Donald Trump) as Russia’s puppet. Here the real puppet points to the man and declares that he is the puppet. It is a history-making deception. It is grand and it is bold. It cynically estimates the ignorance of the populace, the corruption of the political class, and the willing treachery of the media. It relies on the fact that the smartest strategists and analysts on the American side have been sidelined or murdered. So there is nobody to call out the truth.
“Who now dares say the truth about what has happened in this country? Anyone writing in this vein is committing career suicide. Therefore, only someone without a career would dare to write along these lines at all! Even then it means being assigned to a death list, like Anna Politkovskaya and Alexander Litvinenko. (You want a successful career? You want to live? Sing the tune that is assigned. Play a role out of the communist script. You can be a conservative if you wish, but you will be Moscow’s conservative.)
“Of course, you probably think I am crazy. You think communism went away in 1991. You think that communism no longer exists. But then you will have to explain how we got here – with communist thugs using open intimidation on the streets of our cities! If communism lost the Cold War, why does it presently hold such power in government agencies, universities and newspapers? Why do you think US counterintelligence is spying on the President of the United States and his staff? Who wants to bring him down? You need to explain all the variable phenomena of today: from the communist-inspired economic sabotage of global warming ‘science’ to the insistence that our border remain a sieve. It is only our enemies who stand to gain from these policies.
“But you cannot get over this idea; namely, that communism is dead. You saw it die on TV. How can we talk once again about Marxism-Leninism? Or as an Estonian presidential candidate once asked in response to my discourse: ‘What’s Marxism-Leninism?’ His pained expression relayed the idea that Marxism-Leninism was something that didn’t really exist. Nobody believed in it, so why did it matter? Even the communists don’t believe in communism anymore. It’s as simple as that! Any idiot who tells you that there are true-believing communists should wear a dunce cap. Russia a democracy. China is capitalist. Cuba is an open society with superb health care. And that nice little North Korean man is a champion of world peace!
“So where did all the communists go? Did they simply revert to Christianity? Did they become Scientologists? Stop and think for a moment. You control half the
planet and you’ve been fooling people in every country for decades. And what do you do for an encore? You fall off the edge of the flat earth! Well, I guess they topped themselves after all. And then, twenty-five years later, suddenly, you discover they have taken over your child’s mind and sent him into the street to beat up an old displaced factory worker wearing a hat which says, ‘Make America Great Again.’ You have the CIA and FBI spying on the President of the United States to the advantage of change agents. And Congress is dragging its feet on Trump’s cabinet nominees because they’ve been honey-trapped by the Satanic Pedophile communist zombie apocalypse. It is real Satanism, real pedophilia, real undead communists, and a real apocalypse.
“Have you ever seen the movie Invasion of the Body Snatchers? It’s an allegorical fiction about a communist takeover. Well, we’re living it. In fact, the pod people are attempting to convince the world that they are the ones fighting the alien invasion! This lie is repeated on every news channel. And you might easily believe them: First, because you did not understand who the enemy was. Second, because you don’t believe in pod people. Third, because you voted pod people into the White House in 1992, 1996, 2008 and 2012. And when the pod people finally colonized your government and rotted out your nuclear arsenal, the old pod president didn’t go back to Illinois. He remained in Washington to command the pod-people army inside the federal government, while Mr. Trump erroneously believes himself to be in charge.
“So they don’t believe in Marxism-Leninism anymore? So why do we have socialized medicine? And why does Vladimir Lenin, who died in 1924, lie calmly with his eyes closed in his mausoleum on Red Square – not buried in a grave with a stone marker? No doubt, he is kept on display in Moscow because ‘nobody there believes in him anymore’! It’s a funny kind of not-believing in someone, don’t you think?
“Nobody in Moscow believes in communism! They refuse to bury Lenin because he makes a nice tourist attraction. And besides, Vladimir Putin wears a cross and says he believes in God. (Well, he doesn’t really like to talk about it. But we think he believes in God.) And so, at the end of the day, we are all Kremlin puppets. We are all bouncing helplessly at the end of Moscow’s string. Even now the puppet-master appears to be at odds with his most secret creatures – the moles at CIA and FBI! Appearances notwithstanding, the puppeteer must always hide the puppet’s strings. This he accomplishes by a diversion in which he calls the man (Trump) a puppet and the puppet (Obama) he calls a man. And so, as well, he calls his friend enemy and his enemy he calls friend.
“If President Trump could read one paragraph of this scribbling, I would wish that he read this last paragraph. Then he might understand, in an instant, who his enemies are – both foreign and domestic. And I say, that enemy is not an opponent, not a competitor, not a business rival. No, no. I mean – an enemy! And once our president can tell friend from foe, his strategic compass will align to true north and half the battle will be won.” 13
The following excerpts from Yates’ famous poem, The Second Coming, perhaps capture our time best:
“Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere The ceremony of innocence is drowned; The best lack all conviction, while the worst Are full of passionate intensity…
Surely some revelation is at hand; Surely the Second Coming is at hand…
The darkness drops again but now I know That twenty centuries of stony sleep Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle, And what rough beast, its hour come round at last, Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?” 14
