Stratfor Founder: “Be Ready For War”!


  • Stratfor Founder: “Be Ready For War”!
    by MELISSA DYKES | Experts are now saying we’re closer to a “catastrophic and bloody” World War III now than at any other time in the past 60 years. Via The Sun:

    Russia and China, both of which are pumping vast amounts of money into their militaries, could soon rival the US in terms of power and prestige…

    All three nations want to remain a global superpower – if not the only one – and are preparing for war, it is claimed.

    But they oppose each other on a swathe of issues across the globe, creating a delicate political balance that could collapse and engulf nuclear states and alliances such as NATO. A range of experts have identified several flashpoints across the globe which are today the most likely triggers for such a war.

    The “flashpoints” are, of course, nations in the Middle East like Syria and also in Ukraine, all destinations where US regime change efforts are continuing to fail, hacking off both Russia and China. And don’t forget the manufactured feather ruffling going on in the South Sea with China’s man-made islands…

    George Friendman, founder of geopolitical forecaster STRATFOR, has also warned we should all “be ready for war”:

    “There has never been a century that has not had a systemic war — a systemic war, meaning when the entire system convulses.

    Do you want to bet this will be the only century that doesn’t have one? I’ll take that bet.

    When you have the countries like Germany, China, and Russia decline, and be replaced by others, that’s when systemic wars start. That’s when it gets dangerous, because they haven’t yet reached a balance. So Germany united in 1871 and all hell broke loose. Japan rose in the early 20th century, and then you had chaos.

    So we’re looking at a systemic shift. Be ready for war.”

    If last night’s ridiculous town hall with Hillary and Trump was any indication, staged on a decommissioned aircraft carrier and set to the tune of “which puppet will drag us into war next!,” Iran is definitely coming up on the West’s military-industrial empire building checklist.
