Is America Preparing for WW III?
by Stephen Lendman
The 9/11 false flag and endless US wars followed George Bush’s stolen 2000 election. 
If things are rigged for Hillary Clinton to succeed Obama next year, will America attack Russia and China, an unthinkable act of madness if launched!
Provocative US-led NATO troop deployments and military exercises near Russia’s borders, its Romania-based missile system targeting its heartland, along with militarization of the South China Sea risk the unthinkable. It gets worse.
US ambassador to Bulgaria Eric Rubin said Washington intends “a very significant increase” in US forces deployed to the country along with allied NATO troops, part of recklessly dangerous Pentagon strategy for greater control over the Black Sea region, including waters close to Crimea.
An area US Navy SEAL base is planned. Their tactical units already operate provocatively in Black Sea waters, conducting combat exercises – perhaps in preparation for an anti-Russian operation.
Is training underway to invade Crimea, a reckless act if undertaken! It’s Russian territory. Invading or otherwise attacking it would be a declaration of war – perhaps prelude to WW III.
US imperial madness seems headed inevitably in this direction. Moscow is preparing to counter US belligerence. 
The Saker notes “Russians like to say that ‘Russia never starts wars. She only ends them.” The mission of its military is “survival. At all cost.”
It’s preparing for WW III (it wants avoided) to leave no doubt US-dominated NATO “will never survive a war with Russia, even if every single Russian is killed.”
Next year under a new administration in Washington could be decisive in world history.
