US Belligerency Risks Global War
The threat of global war is real.
by Stephen Lendman
The business of America is war. Since WW II, permanent war for unchallenged global dominance became policy.
The Pentagon calls it a "long war." Dick Cheney said it won't end in our lifetime. GHW Bush called it a "New World Order." Nations are ravaged one at a time or in multiples.
Obama is America's latest warrior president. Many others preceded him. More than ever, today's threat is grave. A previous article addressed the unthinkable - the possibility of global nuclear war.
Leaders risking it are deranged. Some experts believe it's inevitable. Washington maintains a nuclear first-strike policy. Launching weapons this destructive threatens humanity. The possibility is real, perhaps sooner than most people imagine.
Nadir Mir discussed the threat. His March 26 Pravda article headlined, "On the brink of Third World War - 2012," saying:
A global catastrophe threatens. "If war breaks out in 2012 onwards, Nukes shall speak and tragically billions may die. If there is war, it will most likely spread to be global plus nuclear, and without method in the madness. This apocalyptic scenario may yet come to pass, unless it is stopped in its tracks."
"US globalists" want world dominance. Rogue NATO partners want their share. So does Israel. Lessons from two world wars taught nothing, especially the dangers of potential nuclear annihilation.
New wars are planned. Syria and Iran are targeted. Electoral politics up the ante. Obama may attack either country or both to avoid looking soft. "Prepare for Armageddon must be taken seriously."
Washington-led, Western-generated Syrian violence may be prelude for what's to come. Peace, stability, and democratic values aren't options. Dominance alone matters. Permanent wars pursue it.
Attacking Syria, Iran, and perhaps nuclear armed Pakistan more aggressively could unleash a real life Andromeda Strain able to destroy humanity. It's no longer science fiction.
America's rage for war escalates the risk. Yet major media scoundrels won't discuss it or confront Washington's belligerency.
Syria is target one. The road to Tehran runs through Damascus. Months of Western-generated violence ravaged the country. Conflict resolution peace plan deception belies Washington's intent to continue it. Assad's blamed for insurgent crimes.
