Today is the most perilous time in world history, exceeding all earlier perilous times.
The risk of humanity-destroying war exists on multiple fronts.
Hegemon USA-dominated NATO’s proxy war on Russia risks direct East/West confrontation with nukes — things heading ominously in this direction.
Last Sunday, Russia’s Security Council Deputy Chairman, Dmitry Medvedev, said the following:
“Some bloody (Ukrainian) clowns, who pop up with statements now and then, are trying to threatens us, I mean attacks on Crimea and so on,” adding:
“Should anything of the kind happen, they will be faced with doomsday, very quick and tough, immediately.”
“There will be no avoiding it.”
“But they keep on provoking the general situation by such statements.”
Medvedev should have stressed that US-dominated NATO’s proxy war on Russia with Ukrainian foot soldiers risks WW III.
Something similar is at risk of playing out in the Asia/Pacific.
On Monday, China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman commented on the Biden regime’s intention to sell another $108 million worth of weapons to Taiwan, saying:
“US arms sales to China’s Taiwan region seriously violate the one-China principle and the stipulations of the three China-US joint communiques, especially the August 17 Communique of 1982.”
“The sales gravely undermine China’s sovereignty and security interests, and severely harm China-US relations and peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait.”
“China firmly opposes and strongly condemns this.”
“We have made serious demarches to the US side over this” — demanding that the empire of lies “stop arms sales to and military contact with Taiwan and stop creating factors that could lead to (increased) tensions in the Taiwan Strait.”
“China will continue to take resolute and strong measures to firmly defend its sovereignty and security interests.”
Separately, Chinese Defense Ministry’s spokesman, Col. Tan Kefei, said the following:
If hegemon USA continues to supply Taiwan — what Beijing considers a breakaway province — with weapons, “the US side will be solely responsible for undermining the relationship between China and the US, and the two militaries and the peace and stability of the Taiwan Strait.”
“The Chinese People’s Liberation Army will take all necessary measures to firmly defend national sovereignty and territorial integrity, and resolutely thwart any form of external interference and separatist attempts for Taiwan independence.”
According to interventionist Blinken’s so-called spokesman Price:
The empire of lies and forever wars on invented enemies intends to continue providing Taiwan with weapons and munitions to “defend itself” — despite having no regional or other enemies, just invented ones.
Hostile to peace and stability sales to Taiwan flagrantly breach hegemon USA’s one China policy — what exists in name only.
In response to the State Department’s approved sale, Taiwan’s so-called defense ministry said the following:
“We express sincere gratitude to the (Biden regime’s) State Department for giving clearance for the order,” as well as sticking to so-called “Six Assurances.”
They refer to US arms sales to Taiwan without consulting China.
Announced in the 1980s, the include the following:
The US set no date for ending arms sales to Taiwan.
It did not agree to consult with the PRC on arms sales to Taiwan.
Nor will it play a mediating role between Taipei and Beijing.
It did not agree to revise the Taiwan Relations Act (TRA).
Nor did it alter its position regarding Chinese sovereignty over Taiwan.
It will not exert pressure on Taiwan to enter into negotiations with the PRC.
By joint resolution in 2016, the US House and Senate affirmed the Six Assurances and Taiwan Relations Act (TRA) as cornerstones of US/Taiwan relations.
The 1979 TRA terminated formal US diplomatic recognition of Taiwan.
The Trump and Biden regimes breached the letter and spirit of Sino/US relations by establishing and maintaining de facto relations with Taiwan — as well as virtually abandoning the US one-China policy.
Earlier this year, Beijing’s US envoy, Qin Gang, called “(t)he Taiwan issue the biggest tinderbox between China and the US,” adding:
“If the Taiwanese authorities, emboldened by the US, keep going down the road for independence, it most likely will involve China and (hegemon USA) in a military conflict.”
Is the empire of lies heading for direct confrontation with Russia and China at the same time?
Is war on Iran another risk too serious to ignore?
On Monday, apartheid Israel’s IDF chief, General Aviv Kochavi, said the following:
“Preparing a military option against (Iran’s commercial) nuclear program (with no military component) is a moral necessity and a national security imperative (sic).”
On all things military and most everything else, the empire of lies and apartheid Israel are joined at the hip.
The Jewish state won’t undertake anything belligerent against Iran without US permission or involvement.
If the Islamic Republic is attacked, it’ll likely be a joint US/Israeli operation.
Is this where things are heading?
Israeli warplanes recently simulated a large-scale attack on Iran during military exercises.
If attacked by Israel or any other nation, Iran vowed to respond in crushing fashion.
On numerous occasions, Iran’s ruling authorities and military vowed to annihilate Israel if attacked by the Zionist state.
In early July, Tehran’s chief nuclear negotiator, Ali Bagheri-Kani, said the following:
“Even if (Israel) attack(s) Iran in (its) dreams, (its ruling regime) should know that (it) certainly will not wake from that dream.”
Yet the threat of US/NATO direct confrontation with Russia and China, as well as Israeli aggression against Iran, remain ominous possibilities.
Never before in my lifetime has the threat of global war with nukes been as worrisome as now.
What’s unthinkable is very possible because of US rage for unchallenged global dominance.
The same goes for Israeli rage to dominate the Middle East by neutralizing and partitioning other regional states to control them, especially Iran.
