World War III

12 06 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Some of us have lived through World War II, the Korean War, our wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and “minor skirmishes” such as John F. Kennedy’s “Bay of Pigs” fiasco in Cuba.[2]  In the tony area of Los Angeles called Brentwood, just up the street from where O.J. Simpson killed his wife Nicole and Ron Goldman, my elementary school classmates and I went through mock nuclear attack drills.  We had to hide under our school desks and cover our heads, to protect ourselves against “falling debris” from Soviet attacks that thankfully never came.

Growing up a mile or so west of the UCLA campus in Los Angeles, my first and only childhood memories of World War II were of giant searchlights—like those used at Hollywood movie premieres—scanning the skies for Japanese aircraft.  Was this an overreaction?  The fact is that a Japanese submarine shelled the Santa Barbara oilfields at Ellwood, just north of today’s UCSB college campus.[3]

Now, in a country that few Americans knew anything about, Russia’s KGB-trained killer Vladimir Putin’s thugs have destroyed much of Ukraine, and have raped and tortured Ukrainian women, and subjected Ukrainians to barbarism not seen in Europe since World War II.  Many forget that when his Soviet antecedents entered Berlin at the end of that war, they raped an estimated 2 million German women.  A former secretary of mine was a young girl there; and what she witnessed was unspeakable.  No human being should ever go through that, she told me, yet it is happening again, as Putin’s barbarians defy all civilized norms.

And all of this is occurring as the world slowly recovers from China’s deadly Coronavirus pandemic and its lockdowns, which have killed or injured millions, physically, economically and mentally.  Not satisfied, the Chinese huns in Beijing are threatening war unless the United States and the West acquiesce to their demands regarding Taiwan and the Pacific.[4]  As if this was not enough, Putin even threatens the Arctic[5], in addition to unleashing a nuclear war.

None of the catastrophes overshadow the possibility of nation-ending EMP attacks, which might kill millions.[6]  Is this pure and unadulterated madness?  Of course it is.[7]  And it is occurring at a time in history when the United States is leaderless, and perhaps more divided than at anytime since the Vietnam War.  We have a President who can barely utter a complete thought, and who may have been mentally impaired after at least two brain operations.[8]  And we have a Vice President standing in the wings and waiting for him to “croak,” who was a former ho.[9]

Also, illegal aliens (including human traffickers and members of drug cartels) have been flooding across our borders, unobstructed.  Crime has been spiraling out of control because our police have been targeted by the thugs, slugs, hoods and mongrels of “Black Lives Matter,” Antifa and other far-Left groups, which have burned our cities and destroyed black and other businesses.  Prices for gasoline and other commodities have reached stratospheric levels, and are expected to climb even higher, because America’s eco-Nazis have sought to curtail or destroy our oil production and independence.  And shortages of vital goods exist.

The United States has been weakened at a critical time in history when we as Americans—of all colors, ethnicities, religious beliefs and economic levels—can ill afford it.  Needless to say, this whets the appetites of our enemies, and is what they have been planning carefully for years.  Our automobile sales lots are empty because of the shortage of chips and other essential parts.  Our laptops and many cellphones are made in China; and if Chinese products were removed from the shelves of Walmart stores, they would be decimated.

The game of chess is won by those who plan ahead, and advance methodically from move to move, and from “check” to “checkmate.”  Right now it can be argued that China and Russia are moving ever so close to having us in “check,” by crippling our great nation.  Their next move would be “checkmate,” which would destroy our lives as we have known them.  Only by waking up now, and realizing fully the perils we face, can we avoid a catastrophic end that none of us ever thought would be possible.

ECONOMIC WARS PRECEDE KINETIC WARS

I subscribe to the notion we have been at “war” with China since its entry into the World Trade Organization (WTO), having been designated a “Most Favored Nation” in global trade. China lied to get in. Look at all of our industry that has gone out-of-business since the nineties (NAFTA) or relocated overseas to remain profitable, shedding millions of middle class jobs in the process.

Clearly, China has been in an economic war with America since at least 2000. When President Trump threatened reversing some of these global trends, the Chinese released Covid-19 on the world and gave infected individuals free plane tickets to travel abroad. Then came the lock-downs.

Even our own NIH and Dr. Anthony Fauci ( a career Federal government administrator) funded and enabled the Wuhan Lab to conduct biological experiments on bats. Such Biological labs are found in many other locations around the world, such as Morocco. China will probably move on Taiwan next year. Its simply way to tempting an opportunity to ignore or postpone indefinitely. We may have a Military Draft by 2025 if the Cycle of Wars and Conflicts intensifies in the coming years. Millineals will be the ones to fight and die in the next World War.

Thank you, Craig. You may be correct.

I have been watching the graduation of one of my grandchildren. That generation has no earthly idea of what may be coming.

Will Russia Collapse, And If So, When?

See https://youtu.be/UwPMtmuuVNw (“Watch ‘How Russia Will Die | Peter Zeihan’ on YouTube”)

This is excellent, and worth listening to.

I studied the Soviet economy as an undergraduate, and believed it was a “house of cards” then.

I was in Berlin when it collapsed; and Soviet soldiers were selling their uniforms and plumbing fixtures from their barracks, and going back to “tent cities” in the USSR.

I have followed the Putin’s rise to power since he joined Boris Yeltsin, and then replaced him.

Putin is isolated, yes, and suffering from cancer, reportedly.

Unlike the podcasters, I believe Russia will implode after Putin is gone, and become separate countries like Yugoslavia after Tito’s death.

Indeed, I have written:

Russia is weaker today than the former USSR before it collapsed. It spans nine time zones and includes 160 ethnic groups that speak an estimated 100 languages. It is by no means monolithic, and may crumble “overnight.” Once Putin is gone, Russia may be dismembered—never to rise again—with China taking part (e.g., Siberia, which it covets) and the rest becoming independent states like the former Yugoslavia.

Each of the new states will act in its own best interests, just as has been true in the former Yugoslavia, and among the countries that were spun off from the USSR—which have thrived as part of the West. Putinism will not survive Putin. It will suffer an ignominious death, like its namesake; and constitute a tragic watershed in history, like Adolf Hitler’s “Thousand Year Reich” and Nazism.

See https://naegeleblog.wordpress.com/2015/11/29/the-death-of-putin-and-russia-the-final-chapter-of-the-cold-war/ (“The Death Of Putin And Russia: The Final Chapter Of The Cold War”)

Time will tell for certain.

Zelenskyy and the courageous Ukrainians are heroes, who should be given everything they need.

Already they have shown Russia to be a third-rate military force, comprised of butchers who must be destroyed—like Adolf Hitler and his Nazis.

When Will Vladimir Putin Arrive In Hell?

The Gates of Hell are opening wide to welcome this butcher. Hopefully his descent is rapid.

China’s Military Might Grows

For the longest time, China’s aircraft carriers were limited to the Liaoning, which was not a carrier at all, but a hulk of a ship that had been part of the vanquished Soviet Union’s fleet. It had been abandoned and rusting in a former Soviet shipyard, when the Chinese bought it.

See, e.g., https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_aircraft_carrier_Liaoning (“Chinese aircraft carrier Liaoning”)

First, they put a flattop on it, but they were so inept that no planes could land on it.

Since those days that I have written about here, China has come a long way.

See, e.g., https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_aircraft_carrier_programme (“Chinese aircraft carrier programme”)

Today, in anticipation of moving on Taiwan and elsewhere, it has become a formidable threat.

See, e.g., http://a.msn.com/01/en-us/AAYzxJI?ocid=se (“China’s Newest Aircraft Carrier Shows Xi Jinping Catching Up With US”) and https://apnews.com/article/beijing-china-shanghai-government-and-politics-6ce51d1901b3a5658cc9ef7e62b65000 (“China launches high-tech aircraft carrier in naval milestone”)
