MSM Ramps Up Calls For War With Russia – Are They Completely Oblivious Such A War Could Bring About ‘Armageddon’, Or, Is That What They Want?

By Stefan Stanford – All News Pipeline – Live Free Or Die

In this new story from M.D. Creekmore over at the Survivalist Blog he shows us the ‘US Nuclear Target Map‘ seen below while asking “do you live in a death zone?”, a question hundreds of millions of Americans might soon be asking if this worst case scenarios come to pass. On Saturday we offered a best case scenario of what’s now happening in Syria and the Middle East, asking if we were witnessing the ‘art of war’ played out at the highest levels and a Trump foreign policy that will lead towards a peace agreement in the Middle East and a neutered North Korea and Kim Jong Un without Trump having to REALLY go to war.

And while we’d love to believe that such a scenario were true, all across the world, the war drums are still beating.

A quick reminder to those who would choose to fight it – a war against Russia could quickly lead to the end of America as we know it. Likely leading to an America without an electrical grid, an America with no banking system, an America devoid of public utilities and no transportation system as just a start, anyone who would willingly choose to fight such a war is either stupid beyond belief or actually TRYING to destroy our country.

While this map is from 1984 and shows the primary target locations for So… back then, much has changed greatly in the 33 years since and as we previously reported on ANP, Russia’s Satan 2 nukes are powerful enough to wipe out an entire state the size of Texas or country the size of France according to this Telegraph story. As the Express reported back on October 24th of 2016VLADIMIR Putin’s nuclear stockpile could completely destroy the east coast of the US in one clean swipe should the Russian leader launch an attack on the West. From their story.:

Experts estimate Russia has 55 of the deadly weapons, but only five would be needed to destroy the East Coast of the US. 

The atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki would look like “popguns” in comparison to the demolition the Satan missiles could inflict. 

Dr Paul Craig Roberts, who served under Ronald Reagan administration, claimed the bombs would “wipe out three quarters of New York state for thousands of years”.

Likely putting the lives of hundreds of millions of Americans on the line, a WW3 against Russia would easily explain why Deagel.com just raised their numbers to 262 million ‘de…. Do those itching for war with Russia WANT all of their family members DEAD and nearly every person they’ve ever known to be wiped off the face of the planet in radioactive ash or the dire famine and starvation that would be caused if Russia EMP’d us?

And as one ANP reader wisely pointed out, while Deagel is forecasting a nearly a 90% population ‘die off’ by 2024, an EMP that took down our power grid would inevitably lead to the deaths of nearly 100% of us as our nuclear p… and deadly radiation spreads across America and the entire Northern hemisphere. Thus, the areas seen in red in the next mapbelow are likely much more accurate of where we don’t want to be in America should WW3 begin.

It would also explain why the Russia and America-hating globalists intent upon destroying both countries would be pushing for it, a WW3 between Russia and the US would lead to mutually assured destruction…which is actually the biggest hope we have that a WW3 between America and Russia will be avoided. The Russians know quite well that if a nuclear war breaks out between them and the US, the ‘end times’ will have arrived.

And while we love to be optimistic and hope that we’re watching ‘de-escalation’ towards global war through shrewd moves, as we see in the new stories outlined below from across the internet, more and more evidence shows we’re now watching the final chess pieces of thermonuclear war being moved in…. We’ve reached the point where quite literally, only one ‘event’ could send the entire world into a mad rush towards fiery destruction. As former Congressman Ron Paul recently stated, “they are terrified that peace is going to break out”.

According to Mike Cernovich, current Trump National Security Advisor H. R. McMaster is manipulating inte… in an effort to get 150,000 ground troops into Syria. Cernovich says McMaster is part of a coalition eager to get the US embroiled in another major war for corporate profit and as Raymond Ibrahim reported back on March 13th in this storySteve Quayle linked to on his website, there is a great deal of evidence that McMaster shares Barack Obama’s views on Islam and terrorism.

Once claiming that the Islamic State is not Islamic, as PJMedia reported back in February of 2017, President Trump repeatedly criticized Obama and Hillary Clinton for not being willing to name the source of jihad terror.

Since he has become president, Trump has repeatedly reiterated his desire to eradicate “radical Islamic terrorism.” 

If McMaster holds the view that the Islamic State is not Islamic, then he is a disastrous pick for national security adviser. He would continue the willful ignorance of the Obama administration, stifling efforts to understand and successfully counter the motives and goals of the enemy.

We should also remember, while most believe a nuclear war between two nuclear powers with enough nuclear weapons to destroy the entire world would be an apocalyse, ‘Armageddon’ is exactly what the Islamic State death cult wants. Might ‘enemies of Americawithin’, ‘trojan horse’ holdovers from the previous administration, harbor these same horrific feelings? That possibility would certainly help explain why some would be insanely pushing for war with Russia. The military industrial complex beast Eisenhower warned us of in 1961 needs to be fed human blood.

We’re not the least bit surprised that Islamic terrorists ISIS immediately applauded Trump’s recent bombin…, joining John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Chuck Schummer, Nancy Pelosi and the international globalists in Trump’s praise. Interestingly, CNN’s Fareed Zakaria recently asked if the US was now acting as ISIS’s Air Force by doing the bombing.

As Infowars reported on Saturday, the mainstream media in the US is gleefully calling for war with Russia, completely and totally clueless that Russia has promised time and again that such a war wouldn’t be fought in faraway lands but here upon US soil. Likely leading to their deaths along with the deaths of their fathers, mothers, children, brothers, sisters, friends and co-workers, has much of the world gone completely insane by seeking war with a country that could annihilate us?

In the first video below from Infowars we’re given all the signs that the globalists are still in a mad rush towards all out war with Russia with the mainstream media now attacking those who doubt the ‘official story’. While anyone who gets their news from the MSM will get the ‘official lie’, anybody who’s been paying attention to the endless series of lies knows better and in the 2nd videobelow, we see how the propaganda now being pushed by those hungry for death and destruction has been used over and over and over and over again throughout history.

In the 3rd video below, Anonymous gives us their own update on the rush to WW3, warning us that one incident could very quickly lead to ‘the end’, much as the Russian govt recently warned, the US and Russia were only inches away from a potential WW3. WithRussia recently suspending their deconfliction channel with the US that was aimed at preventing aerial incidents over Syria, there appears to be little or nothing at all in between that ‘one incident’ that could lead to Armageddon.

Commentary: Is This How World War Three Starts?

By Nolan Peterson

 

It’s cold, and I’m alone. I walk along Khreshchatyk, this city’s main boulevard. The street lights cast shadows on the ground, concealing patches of slippery ice and trampled snow. I walk thoughtfully and carefully, unable to clearly see the obstacles in my path.

As is so often the case in a foreign country, even in one that starts to feel like home, the compiled differences in language and life experience isolate you, making you hyper aware to minute details.

A small group of soldiers in uniform huddle outside a bar. They’re smoking cigarettes. A group of pretty young women in leather high-heeled boots and black fur coats walk past. The soldiers are young men, but they hardly seem to notice. Their war isn’t over, and they’re not yet ready to pretend like it is.

Old women sell trinkets like blue and yellow wristbands (Ukraine’s national colors) at souvenir stands on the sidewalk across the street from a Niketown store. Like when I first arrived in Ukraine three years ago, the old women’s wares include rolls of toilet paper and door mats adorned with the likeness of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Up in the windows of some of the apartments along Khreshchatyk, Ukrainian flags hang. Ukraine is, by the way, the only country outside of the United States where I have observed such an ubiquitous display of the national colors.

There are also a few red and black flags of Ukrainian partisan groups, which fought against both the Nazis and the Red Army in World War II. Reminders of this country’s tragic history trapped between the armies of Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin in the no man’s land of the deadliest battlefield in the deadliest war in human history.

Today, this country remains at the front lines of the same ideological fault lines from World War II, which are reopening across Europe and the world.

In 1935, as war clouds gathered in Europe, the American author and war correspondent Ernest Hemingway wrote:

War is no longer made by simply analyzed economic forces if it ever was. War is made or planned now by individual men, demagogues and dictators who play on the patriotism of their people to mislead them into a belief in the great fallacy of war when all their vaunted reforms have failed to satisfy the people they misrule.

Background

The war is still there, even when I don’t go to it.

Nothing has changed in the past two years since the February 15, 2015, cease-fire was signed. Except for what has been lost in the time in between.

More than 10,000 are now dead, almost 2 million have fled their homes. About $20 billion worth of damage to repair.

And yet, nothing has been won or lost. Although, the war hasn’t gotten any worse. And Ukrainians’ dream of a better life, free from oppression and corruption, which inspired the 2014 revolution, has not yet died.

That’s a victory, too, I suppose.

I walk along Khreshchatyk to the Maidan, Kiev’s central square where the revolution was born three years ago. Today, on this evening, the Maidan is not crowded. Only faint, scattered clues of the revolution remain.

Faded burn marks remain on the stone floor of the square, where protesters burned tires as a smoke screen from the snipers. The Trade Unions Building, which was set ablaze on February 18, 2014, is still a burnt out skeleton. White panels conceal it from view. “Glory to Ukraine” is written in giant letters.

The war has become the invisible background din to life in Ukraine. You won’t notice its clues unless you purposefully pay attention for them. But the war is always there, stealthily ever-present.

There is a street performer playing guitar, somehow able to operate his fingers in the brutal cold. He plays a Ukrainian-language song about the war. A man wearing a loose-fitting, mismatched military uniform stands apart, watching. He has a bottle of horilka (Ukrainian for vodka) in his hand, from which he sips frequently. His eyes are half-closed, and he sways out of rhythm to the music, mouthing the words.

The hardest part of war is often the coming home. Wars, after all, never really end for those who fight in them. That’s just as true for this war as for any other.

Heroes

I pass through the Maidan and up the steep cobblestone street to the top of the hill overlooking the square.

The street used to be called Institutskaya Street. Now, it’s the Heroes of the Heavenly Hundred Street, a reference to the roughly 100 protesters who were killed during the revolution.

The street’s cobblestones have all been replaced. Protesters ripped them out of the ground in 2014 to build defensive barricades against the special police unit, called the Berkut, deployed against them by deposed pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovych.

There, at the top of the street, in front of the upper entrance to the Maidan metro station, lies a memorial to the “heavenly hundred.”

At this place, on February 20, 2014, snipers gunned down dozens of unarmed protestors. Today, likenesses of the fallen are etched into metal placards. Passers-by, family members, friends have left flowers and candles beside the many faces.

The fallen, memorialized at this hallowed place, comprise men and women, students and professors, 18-year-olds and 70-year-olds. Hardly the CIA-sponsored Nazis the Kremlin says they were. Rather, ordinary Ukrainians who walked head-on into gunfire to stand up for their freedom.

The price for that freedom was steep. On the ground, in the light poles, in the brittle bark-flesh of the the leafless trees—bullet holes remain.

If you’ve ever been to war, then you know this: Walking toward the sound of gunfire takes a lot of courage.

I feel the cold wind lap at my neck. I hear the click of passing heels on the stone sidewalk. The door to the metro station makes a ratcheting sound as it opens and closes. You can hear that same sound in the YouTube videos of the protestors being gunned down.

Nearby, there are fancy shops, like Cartier, Faberge and Louis Vuitton. There’s a McDonald’s restaurant down the street across the Maidan. That’s where, during the revolution, my friend Valentyn Onyshchenko went to wash his face clean of the blood and bits of brain that spattered on him when a man standing in front of him was shot by a sniper.

Tonight, at this place where so many died three years ago, pedestrians scurry by, on their way to the metro station for the rush-hour commute home.

A man walks by, holding a child’s hand.

The veneer between civilization and barbarism is thinner than we might imagine, I think.

I am within a five-minute walk of my apartment, where my fiancee waits for me. When I get home, if I wanted to, I could order Domino’s Pizza delivery and watch a movie on Netflix through my Apple TV.

I drag my fingers over the bullet holes, as if to confirm, once again, that they are true.

People died here. The snipers shot some of the protesters in the leg. Helpless, they called to their friends to save them. Those comrades rushed up to help, only to be gunned down themselves.

Center of mass. Dead almost instantly. Their bodies fall to the earth in that faster-than-gravity way that dead men do. Like the power has been switched off. Bam, down, dead, done. Nothing dramatic or heroic about it. Just alive and then dead, without any dying in between.

That’s war. But war doesn’t belong in an evening like this, in such a city.

It seems impossible. But it’s real, it’s true. And it’s still happening just hours away. Tanks, heavy artillery, rocket attacks, snipers, trench warfare. In Europe. In 2017.

It’s still happening. People are still dying.

History Repeating

Sure, it feels good to believe that history is moving in the right direction. To retain hope that we, as a species, are better off than we were during, let’s say, World War II, two generations ago.

I think about 72-year-old Anatoli Bastriski sitting on a green bench outside his artillery-razed home in the eastern Ukrainian village of Semyonovka. It was August 2014, weeks after a battle between Ukrainian troops and combined Russian-separatist forces.

Bastriski wore a blue paddy cap and sat with one leg over the other and his arms folded across his thigh. The wall behind him was pockmarked by shrapnel. The street was mostly cleared of debris, but almost every skeleton of a home along the way was unoccupied. There was no one else on the road. The trees were stripped clean of branches and leaves, only the charred trunks survived the artillery barrage.

Bastriski, a Jew, was an infant when the Nazis occupied this part of Ukraine. His family survived the Holocaust, but lost their home in the war.

When the shells started to fall in 2014, Bastriski chose to remain in Semyonovka, riding out the battle in his basement. Even when the roof of his brick home was obliterated by artillery fire, he refused to flee.

“I was born here, and I built my home with my own hands,” Bastriski told me. “The Germans destroyed my parents’ home, and I’ll rebuild this one.”

He cracked a half-smile, shrugged his shoulders, and added, “I’d leave, but the cemetery is too far away.”

Gravity

Will future generations look back on us with the same disbelief that we “didn’t see it coming” as we now look back on those who appeased Hitler, or apologized for Stalin, or Communist Chairman Mao Zedong?

We think that something like World War II could never happen to us, because, well, we’re the ones alive now. We’re different, aren’t we? We have globalization and the United Nations and the internet.

Unfortunately, though, truth has a habit of showing itself, even if we choose to ignore it.

The bullet holes on the sidewalk in Kiev. And the war, which is only a six-hour train ride away. Both reminders that, collectively, we are just treading water, fighting against the gravitational tug of history. The minute we stop kicking, we descend, quickly and easily, into those dark depths from which we thought we had escaped.

“Americans should not take the current international order for granted,” retired General David Petraeus told Congress on February 1. “It did not will itself into existence. We created it. Likewise, it is not naturally self-sustaining. We have sustained it. If we stop doing so, it will fray and, eventually, collapse.”

I must confess, it’s hard to believe in the inevitability of violence on a cold winter’s night in a peaceful, European capital city like Kiev.

The McDonald’s restaurants, the cocktail bars, the fancy shops—it sure feels good to stare at shadows for a night. But the bullet holes, the war—that’s the light at my back, dimming the shadows so much that I can no longer believe in them.

One last thought. I’ve written this sentence before, but it bears repeating:

The only way to prevent the next world war from happening is to believe that it could
