Preparing for War with Russia and China: America's Quest for Global Domination Depends on Space Technology
"The proliferation of nuclear weapons to dozens of other countries remains a constant danger.
The nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) of 1968 was a compact between the non-nuclear nations and nuclear-armed nations, with the former agreeing to forego nuclear weapons development while the latter eliminated their nuclear arsenals.
But time is running out on this bargain, for, despite U.S.-Russian agreements that have eliminated some nuclear weapons, the nuclear powers’ failure to divest themselves of their full nuclear arsenals and their plans for nuclear “modernization” are leading to a rebellion by the non-nuclear powers.
Fed up with the hypocrisy of the nuclear-armed nations, some have themselves developed nuclear weapons, others are toying with the idea, and still others have begun a revolt against the nuclear powers over this issue."
AND THAT HAS LED TO THIS...INVOLVING NATO NATIONS...LIKE FALLING DOMINOES, FEAR DRIVES NATIONS TO FALL FOR THE "DEFENSE TRICK"...BUY WEAPONS TO PREVENT WAR.
Obama Requests Military Support for Possible War Against Russia.April 24, 2016
by Investigative historian Eric Zuesse
"According to an April 23rd article carried by Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten (German Economic News), U.S. President Barack Obama is “demanding the active deployment of the Bundeswehr [Germany’s armed forces, including their Army, Navy, and Air Force] to NATO’s eastern borders” at Poland and the Baltic republics, to join the quadrupling of America’s forces there, on and near the borders of Russia.
This is an extreme violation of what Russian leader Mikhail Gorbachev agreed to when he ended the Soviet Union and its NATO-mirror organization the Warsaw Pact, but it’s actually culminating a process that began shortly after he agreed to America’s terms, which included that NATO “not move one inch to the east.”
NATO’s encirclement of Russia with forces hostile to it is supposedly defensive — not an offensive operation — against Russia and is presented as such by our media.
During the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis, J. F. Kennedy didn’t consider Nikita Khrushchev’s plan to base nuclear missiles in Cuba to be ‘defensive’ on the USSR’s part — and neither does Russia’s President Vladimir Putin consider America’s far bigger operation of surrounding Russia with such weapons to be ‘defensive’.
Obama is thus now adding to the economic sanctions against Russia that he had imposed because of Russia’s alleged ‘seizure’ of Crimea from Ukraine after the US and EU engineered coup overthrew Russia’s ally Viktor Yanukovych who had led Ukraine until the coup in February 2014.
Even though Western-sponsored polls in Crimea, both before and after the coup, had shown higher than 90% support by Crimeans for rejoining with Russia, right after Crimeans voted overwhelmingly to rejoin Russia, Obama slapped sanctions against Russia. Nuclear weapons were prepared, both on the U.S.-EU side and on the Russian side, for a possible nuclear war."
THAT'S TRUE, JUST LIKE IT'S TRUE THE MAJORITY OF SYRIANS VOTED FOR ASSAD.

Why Syrians Support President Bashar al Assad | Global Research
Without Sunni support Assad's rule would have collapsed long ago.
From FOX News, of all media!
FOX, THE voice of conservative America!
"That support was on display as Syrians voted overwhelmingly Tuesday to give Assad another seven-year term. He won 88.7 percent of the vote
While the balloting and much of the pro-Assad spectacle seen on the streets of Damascus was stage-managed, even the president's staunchest enemies concede that the man who has led Syria since 2000 retains substantial backing.
"If only minorities were loyal to Assad, they (rebels) would have taken the country," said Wida Saleh, a 35-year-old lawyer and Assad supporter who reluctantly identified herself as a Sunni Muslim.
"But because the majority (Sunnis) are standing behind him, they have kept Syria standing," she said at a voting booth set up in Damascus' ornate, century-old Hijaz train station."
ANYONE CAN LOOK AND SEE THAT OBAMA HAS OBVIOUSLY DECIDED THAT HE WILL RISK ALL-OUT WORLD WAR DURING THIS LAST WEEK BEFORE OUR PRETEND ELECTIONS, BUT HOW MANY OF US WERE OBLIVIOUS TO WHAT THE PEOPLE OF THOSE TWO REGIONS WANT?
WHO IN AMERICA KNEW THAT CRIMEA WANTS RUSSIA AND SYRIANS WANT ASSAD?
WE MAY HAVE SUSPECTED THAT, ONCE AGAIN,WASHINGTON WAS BEHIND THAT COUP IN THE UKRAINE, AS IT HAS BEEN BEHIND HUNDREDS OF COUPS OVER TIME, BUT WHO OF US KNEW HOW DEEPLY INVOLVED AMERICA WAS IN THIS ONE?
ARE THESE TWO NEW "WAR FRONTS" BEING CREATED JUST TO SELL MORE U.S. ARMS, AS SOME HAVE SAID?
CREATE FEAR AMONG THE NATIONS, THEN SELL THEM BIGGER, BETTER WEAPONS?
With the end of the U.S. arms embargo, Vietnam will join a long list of international recipients of American armaments.
The U.S. is responsible for nearly 33% of worldwide exports -- by far the top arms exporter on the planet -- but which countries does the U.S. sell the most weapons to?
AS CNN REPORTED, SAUDI ARABIA IS THE BIGGEST BUYER.
Saudi Arabia was the top recipient of American-made arms from 2011-2015, followed closely by the United Arab Emirates, according to research compiled by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), which has been analyzing international arms transfers since 1968.
The rest of the top 10 included Turkey, South Korea, Australia, Taiwan, India, Singapore, Iraq, and Egypt.
[NOT ISRAEL? NOPE.]
"The dynamic of the [falling] oil prices has been overwhelmed by the deep insecurity these countries are currently feeling and the insecure future they feel they face," Andrew Hunter of the Center for Strategic and International Studies told CNN.
Hunter, the director of the defense-industrial initiatives group, said that the countries in the region were "prioritizing defense" over other spending.
The American exports include everything from small arms to fighter jet aircraft and tanks, to Patriot Missile batteries.
Several Asian countries are also represented high up on the arms sales list, reflecting ongoing tensions with North Korea over its nuclear and missile programs and China's stepped up military activity in the South China Sea.
The tightening of U.S.-Vietnam relations comes as Vietnam has protested China's actions in its nearby waters, including an incident where China stationed an oil rig in disputed waters off of Vietnam's coast in 2014, an event that sparked anti-China riots in Vietnam.
The day after the US. announced it would lift its arms embargo against Vietnam, Secretary of State John Kerry said Tuesday that Vietnam needs the military equipment it will get in order to defend itself."
OVER AND OVER AGAIN, WE SEE FEAR DRIVING ARMS PURCHASES.
IS THIS A NEW TURN OF EVENTS JUST TO SATISFY OPEC NATIONS WHO HATE ASSAD AND ARE AFRAID OF ISIS, EACH OTHER, MERELY A PLOY TO SELL WEAPONS TO FEARFUL NATO ALLIES, TO SELL WEAPONS TO FEARFUL ASIAN STATES?
FEAR CERTAINLY MOTIVATES NATIONS TO BUILD ARSENALS.
OR IS IT BEING CARRIED OUT BECAUSE IT'S LOOKING LIKE CLINTON COULD BE INDICTED FOR THOSE EMAILS AFTER ALL, SO WORLD WAR MAY SEEM TO BE THE ONLY WAY FOR THE POWERS THAT BE TO KEEP TRUMP OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE?
AFTER ALL, OBAMA HAS SAID TRUMP IS NOT QUALIFIED TO BE PRESIDENT.
IS HE SETTING THE STAGE FOR A REFUSAL TO HAND OVER THE WHITE HOUSE?
Indications that the U.S. Is Planning a Nuclear Attack Against Russia
- On Wednesday, June 11th, CNN headlined “U.S. Sends B-2 Stealth Bombers to Europe,” and reported that “they arrived in Europe this week for training.”
- May 23rd, 2016, “U.S. Tests Advanced Missile For NATO Interceptor System,- "Barely a month before the CIA and State Department overthrew the previous, the pro-Russian, President of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych, the government of Netherlands decided, after 18 years of “dithering,” to allow the U.S. to arm our F-35 bombers there with nuclear weapons.
-Obama isn’t only beefing up our first-strike nuclear capability, but is also building something new, called “Prompt Global Strike,” to supplement that nuclear force, by means of “a precision conventional weapon strike” that, if launched against Russia from next-door Ukraine, could wipe out Russia’s nuclear weapons within just a minute or so.
-As if it’s not already enough, that the U.S. has troops in many countries, which include the following nations where our soldiers are stationed (and this includes ones with missile bases located near Russia): Norway, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Ukraine, Georgia, Azerbaijan, and Kazakhstan.
We also have some soldiers in other former parts of the U.S.S.R.: Moldova, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan.
-We also have nearly 35,000 troops stationed in Japan, a nation near Russia and that claims ownership of four small Sakhalin Islands and two small Kuril Islands, from Russia. Not to mention, of course, installations in places like Romania, Singapore, Turkey, Peru, Kenya, and Oman, totaling 185 countries around the world.
The United States is, of course, NOT surrounded by any Russian soldiers at all, (NOR Syrian troops, NOR Chinese military weapons, NOR North Korean tanks)— not in Mexico, nor in Canada, nor anywhere near this country, except Russia itself near Alaska."
FOR WHATEVER REASON, THE ORDERS HAVE BEEN GIVEN ON MORE THAN ONE FRONT TO READY ALL OUR WEAPONS OF WAR AND GO OUT LIKE DON QUIXOTE AGAINST THOSE DAMNABLE WINDMILLS....ALL OF THEM...EVERYWHERE...AT THE SAME TIME.
WE CURRENTLY HAVE CHINA SURROUNDED WITH WEAPONS AND TROOPS ON 400 DIFFERENT BASES NEAR THE CHINESE BORDER AND ARE JUST BEGGING FOR A FIGHT IN THE SOUTH CHINA SEA.
World War 3 build-up: US and China armies are preparing war

Russia, China, Europe and the US talk World War III
IN CASE YOU DON'T KEEP COUNT AS SOME DO, AMERICA AND ITS 'NATO ALLIES' HAVE OVER 700 MILITARY BASES IN JUST AFGHANISTAN.
(WE HAVE 60 OR SO "U.S. DRONE BASES, OUTPOSTS, CAMPS, COMPOUNDS, PORT FACII;ITIES, ETC, UNDER 'AFRICOM' AS WELL, BUT THE "OFFICIAL COUNT" FOR AFRICA STATES WE HAVE...ONE.)
DOES THAT SOUND LIKE A "PEACE-KEEPING NATION?
US military spending is higher than that of the next 10 countries' military budgets in the world taken together.
'The U.S. outpaces all other nations in military expenditures. World military spending totaled more than $1.6 trillion in 2015."
It's also a myth that Russia spends more on its military that NATO.
The military spending of the 27 other NATO countries (America excluded) is 10 times higher than that of the Russian Federation.
Add up the numbers, folks...UK, France, Germany, Canada, Belgium...all those nations spend more to arm against Russia than Russia spends to defend its own borders.
By NATO’s count, total defense spending of all NATO members stood at about $900 billion in 2015 in current dollars. The United States’ share was about $650 billion. Do the math, and the percentage comes to about 72 percent.
What is Russia's defense spending?
From the same source as above and the next three most often used sources (all agree within $2 billion or so) Russia had a defense budget of $66 billion in 2015.
Less than Saudi Arabia, a very small nation, comparatively.
WE HAVE HELPED NATO NATIONS SURROUND RUSSIA WITH NUCLEAR WEAPONS FOR ABOUT, WHAT, 67 YEARS NOW, SINCE ITS 'FOUNDING' IN 1949?
WE'RE ALL OVER THE MIDDLE EAST, FINGER IN EVERY PIE THERE.
WE'RE BACK IN IRAQ AND BUILDING TROOP NUMBERS THERE, YET AGAIN.
WHEREVER IRAN IS, WE'RE THERE TO GIVE "AID"TO ANYONE WHO WANTS TO ERASE IRAN FROM THE FACE OF THE PLANET, DITTO FOR ISRAEL, AS OBAMA HAS OFTEN EXPRESSED HIS DISLIKE OF THOSE JEWS AND HAS DONE QUITE A BIT TO ROUND UP ALL ISRAEL'S HISTORICAL FOES AND DRAG THEM INTO AN ESCALATING FRACAS IN NEIGHBORING SYRIA.
WE'RE THREATENING NORTH KOREA AND ARMING THE WAR-MINDED ABE REGIME IN JAPAN (WHERE MORE THAN HALF THAT COUNTRY WANTS ALL U.S.TROOPS OUT FOR SOME VERY GOOD REASONS) AND WE'RE HANDING OVER "PROTECTIVE WEAPONS" TO SOUTH KOREA.
WE'RE STILL IN AFRICA, SOMALIA, CHAD, NAME IT.
DRONES DON'T RECOGNIZE NAMES OR NATIONS.
AS I WROTE AWHILE BACK, WE'RE BOMBING OURSELVES IN SYRIA, BOMBING CIVILIANS IN YEMEN (AND EVERYWHERE ELSE, ACTUALLY, YES?), AND, ON THE HOME FRONT, OBAMA IS RUMORED TO BE LOOKING INTO HOW TO NOT HAND THE REINS OVER TO TRUMP, SHOULD HE, BY SOME FLUKE, ACTUALLY WIN, OR IF THE FBI OR MAJORITY OF CONGRESS, WHICH IS REPUBLICAN, BTW, GROWS A SET OF 'STONES' AND ACTUALLY ARRESTS OR INDICTS ALL INVOLVED IN THAT EMAIL/NATIONAL SECURITY DEBACLE.
WILL IT BE MARTIAL LAW INSTEAD OF TRUMP OR CLINTON?
HAS THE PREZ DECIDED HE WANTS TO BE KING FOR LIFE?
THIS IS INSANITY AT ITS PEAK.
GO SEE FOR YOURSELVES HOW CLOSE WE ARE TO A "NEW AND IMPROVED" GLOBAL CONFLICT THAT CAN ONLY LEAD TO WORLD WAR III.
LISTEN, CITIZENS OF THE WORLD, THIS IS NOT THE WILL OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
THIS IS AN ACTION BEING TAKEN BY THOSE WHO CONTROL OUR MILITARY-INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX.
IT IS UTTER MADNESS BEING CARRIED OUT BY THE CRIMINALLY INSANE WHO RUN AMERICA, INC.
War With Russia Looms, Says Former NATO General [NEWSWEEK]
THE "BIG O" (OBAMA) DECIDED TO PUSH RUSSIA EVEN MORE BY SENDING U.S. TROOPS TO NORWAY.
[How he convinced Norway to welcome U.S. forces there we may never know.
This is absolutely unprecedented.]
"This is the first time a foreign military will be operating on Norwegian soil since World War II.
According to the International Business Times, the Marines will be operating out of the Vaernes military Base in central Norway, and will be involved in Arctic condition training and drills. Vaernes military Base lies only 600 miles from the Russian border.
A spokesman for the Russian embassy in Oslo, Maxime Gourov, expressed Russia’s concern over the decision via an email sent to Agence France-Presse.
“Taking into account multiple statements made by Norwegian officials about the absence of threat from Russia to Norway, we would like to understand why Norway is so much willing to increase its military potential, in particular through the stationing of American forces in Vaernes.”
"Earlier this year the US revealed it was deploying equipment to Cold War-era caves in Norway.
The air-conditioned bunkers span much of central Norway and were used in the 1980s to store US equipment during the Cold War.
They are large enough to hold equipment for 15,000 marines and are routinely used as a base for training exercises run in partnership with the Norwegian and US militaries.
Norway has historically pledged not to accept a permanent contingent of foreign troops on its soil as long as it was not being directly threatened."
MEANWHILE, BACK IN SYRIA, THE U.S. CONTINUES TO ARM EVERYBODY AND THEIR DOGS AGAINST OLD ASSAD...AND AGAINST RUSSIA. IT'S REALLY A U,S,/RUSSIA FIGHT AFTER ALL, BUT WE AREN'T SUPPOSED TO NOTICE THAT.
"Moscow’s Defence Minister Sergei Shoygu issued a chilling threat to the West and ordered leaders to “determine who they are fighting against: terrorists or Russia”.
He said: “The prospects for the start of a negotiation process and the return to peaceful life in Syria are postponed for an indefinite period. It is time for our Western colleagues to determine who they are fighting against: terrorists or Russia.”
YOU FORGOT TO WARN THE DAMNED U.N., SERGEI.
THE U.N. HASN'T "SANCTIONED" ANYONE OPPOSED TO ASSAD AND WOULDN'T EVEN SEND IN 'HUMANITARIAN AID' DURING THE CEASE-FIRE IMPOSED BY RUSSIA.
"U.N. DON'T WANT NO STEEEENKEEEENG PEACE", SHALL WE SAY?
YES, LET'S DO.
IT'S SIMPLE...EVERYBODY WHO IS NOT SYRIAN, GET OUT OF SYRIA.
LET THE SYRIANS HANDLE THE SYRIAN PROBLEMS.
AND TAKE ALL THOSE WEAPONS EVERY 'SUPER POWER' HANDED OUT TO EVERYONE...OH, AND GET ERDOGAN AND IRAN'S AYATOLLAH TO A NICE QUIET ASYLUM AND LOCK THEM IN...PREFERABLY IN THE SAME ROOM TOGETHER...WITH OUR CONGRESS AND THE PENTAGON AND ALL WHO ARE CRYING "WAR!"
Russia and NATO hold war games in SAME location.
WOW, WHAT A COINCIDENCE, RIGHT?
NATO to send 'combat-ready' battalions near Russian border.
FOR PETE'S SAKE, "NATO" TRANSLATES TO THE U.S. AND U.K. TELLING EVERYBODY ELSE WHAT TO DO.
THE U.S. IS GREAT AT INSTILLING FEAR IN EVERYONE AND NATO NATIONS ARE GULLIBLE ENOUGH TO BE AFRAID.
AMERICA HAS BEEN SCREAMING, "THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING!" SINCE 1947.
US Deploys 1,000 Troops To Russian Border
A LOUSY THOUSAND?
WAIT, ADDED TO THE THOUSANDS ALREADY THERE, MAYBE...NO, IT CAN'T BE JUST 1,000.
NATO troop buildup to deter Russia is largest since Cold War.
NOW THE ARTICLE ABOVE COMES FROM PBS.
THINK ABOUT THAT...PBS?
Britain, U.S. sending planes, troops to deter Russia in the east | Reuters
"Britain said on Wednesday ( October 26) it will send fighter jets to ROMANIA next year and the United States promised troops, tanks and artillery to POLAND in NATO's biggest military build-up on Russia's borders since the Cold War.
Germany, Canada and other NATO allies also pledged forces at a defense ministers meeting in Brussels..."
The United States is like a cornered and wounded animal, dangerous and afraid. It succeeds in half measures, getting rid of Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi and destroying their countries but creating resistance, refugees and new enemies in return. It has succeeded enough to be emboldened but now the last targets can also do great damage. They can’t get regime change in Russia or China, so what will the masters of disaster do next?
The United States and NATO risk worldwide conflagration...
WHAT CAN WE "AVERAGE CITIZENS" DO?
BESIDES DRIVE OUT OUR WAR-MONGERING 'LEADERS'?
IT'S GET RID OF THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEM OR SILENTLY AGREE TO WHAT THEY DO.
