'Must Read: Warnings Of A New World War', 2016
: "In an interview with the Bild newspaper on Oct, 2016, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, who is known for his cautious rhetoric, described the present international situation in the following woeful terms:
“Unfortunately it is an illusion to believe this is the old Cold War. The new times are different; they are more dangerous. Previously, the world was divided, but Moscow and Washington knew each other’s red lines and respected them. In a world with many regional conflicts and dwindling influence of the great powers, the world becomes more unpredictable.”
"If Donald Trump decides to wage a preemptive nuclear attack against North Korea, World War III would commence with a mushroom cloud. The threat is real: the US contemplates waging war war on North Korea. China and Russia have borders with North Korea. A nuclear war against North Korea would be a prelude to a third World War. A nuclear war against North Korea would be a prelude to a third World War." ()

'PUTIN’S WARNING: There is NO Instrument in INTERNATIONAL LAW THAT PREVENTS THE Occurrence of “Mutually Assured Destruction” (MAD): “WHO WILL PUSH THE BUTTON”?':
"Nobody has anything to gain from a nuclear stand-off against Russia. The power hungry decision-makers are few in number, but powerful enough to have subverted mainstream media to misrepresent Russia as the main threat to international security.
Back in 2007, Putin informed the Western world that Russia will develop its weaponry to counter US advances. This was said in response to the US missile defense system that was starting to be developed at the time (previously prohibited in international law.)
With the NATO missile defense system on Russia’s doorstep – the threat to international security is very real; not that you would know it via mainstream Murdoch media. In 2002, the United States unilaterally and without consultation, withdrew from the landmark Anti-Ballistic Missile (ABM) Treaty. President George W. Bush noted that the treaty is “now behind us,” describing the ABM Treaty as a Cold War relic." 'PUTIN’S WARNING: There is NO Instrument ...', 2016
Vladimir Putin just issued chilling warning to the United States, 2016: "As the United States continues to develop and upgrade their nuclear weapons capabilities at an alarming rate, America’s ruling class refuses to heed warnings from President Vladimir Putin that Russia will respond as necessary. In his most recent attempt to warn his Western counterparts about the impending danger of a new nuclear arms race, Putin told the heads of large foreign companies and business associations that Russia is aware of the United States’ plans for nuclear hegemony."
"There is no winner in a nuclear war between Russia and the United States. This has been not only confirmed but repeatedly warned about by atomic scientists who — if we are being honest — are the people whose opinion on this topic should matter the most. It should, therefore, come as no surprise that NASA scientists want to colonize the moon by 2022 — we may have to if we don’t drastically alter the path we are on.
As Albert Einstein famously stated: “I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.” 'Watch/Read more, 2016
'It’s far too easy for Donald Trump to start a nuclear war', Aug, 2017 by Stephen Kinzer:
“I could leave this room, and in 25 minutes, 70 million people would be dead,” President Richard Nixon told members of Congress in 1973. Was he considering it? Was he joking? Was he drunk? None of that matters. The key fact is that he was correct."
"The framers could not have imagined the apocalyptic power of nuclear weapons. Recent events make clear that this is the gaping hole in our system of checks and balances. President Trump cannot remove a local school board member, but if the impulse should strike him while he is relaxing at Mar-a-Lago, or if he is seized by anger when awoken and informed of some violent provocation in a distant land, he can call for “the football.” Nuclear weapons would be in the air within minutes."
"Can there be any restraint if presidents refuse to consult something like Truman’s Interim Committee, if Congress will not act, and if the military considers it taboo to question how it should respond to an order from a berserk president? During the 1980s Roger Fisher, a pre-eminent expert on conflict resolution, offered a provocative answer.
“Put that needed code number in a little capsule, and then implant that capsule right to the heart of a volunteer,” Fisher suggested. “The volunteer would carry with him a big, heavy butcher knife as he accompanied the President. If ever the President wanted to fire nuclear weapons, the only way he could do so would be for him first, with his own hands, to kill one human being. . . He has to look at someone and realize what death is — what an innocent death is. Blood on the White House carpet. It’s reality brought home.” 'It’s far too easy for Donald Trump to start a nuclear war', Aug, 2017

'The People As Enemy: The Leaders' Hidden Agenda in World War II'
: "There is the official view of World War II—the one we have all been taught—then, there is the one presented here: very different, and very disturbing. This alternative view argues that the aims of the national leaders were not democracy and self-determination, but were, as wars generally are, opportunities to suppress class rebellion.
Furthermore, Spritzler maintains, the myths of World War II are the same myths that are being used today in the "war against terrorism" by government and corporate leaders to control people and pursue ends that have nothing to do with protecting us from terrorism." John Spritzler (2003), Doctor of Science, Harvard School of Public Health
“What happened here [Germany then] was the gradual habituation of the people, little by little, to being governed by surprise; to receiving decisions deliberated in secret; to believing that the situation was so complicated that the government had to act on information which the people could not understand, or so dangerous that, even if the people could not understand it, it could not be released because of national security. And their sense of identification with Hitler, their trust in him, made it easier to widen this gap and reassured those who would otherwise have worried about it.”--from Chapter 13, “But Then It Was Too Late”
