Prepper News Weekly April 14 2017
In the news:
There’s really only one story this week that matters. Well, there are many but only one that threatens every single American (and most other peoples too). War. War, war, war, war, war. There is war, in progress or brewing, in virtually every corner of the world. There’s open war being waged in America and other Western nations by blacks, muslims, communists, illegal invaders, criminal bankers, politicians, and various malcontents. These real threats matter little, seemingly, to our “leaders”.
Instead the U.S. and its allies prefer to engage in military action in dozens of places where we simply have no business. This isn’t pure insanity. It is – but it is driven by the profit and control motives of the real owners of our societies.
The U.S. is running operations in: Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan, Libya, Syria, North Korea, and other countries. In all of these places combined there is not a single valid American interest. Three of the wars gained laser focus this week:
Late last week the Trump administration launched five dozen cruise missiles into Syria. Allegedly this was a response to a chemical attack by the Assad regime on his own citizens. The first trouble is, even if this happened, it did not concern America. The second problem is that there is no evidence at all that Assad had anything to do with any chemical attack.
The attack temporarily slowed down operations at a Syrian air field. Nothing gained except for increased tensions with Russia – a very dangerous proposition.
I do understand the possibly plausible angle of using the otherwise useless show of force to put pressure on China to do something about North Korea – more on that in a second. But this really looks more like psychosis that strategy.
More pressure came yesterday when the U.S. dropped its most powerful conventional bomb in Afghanistan. The strike allegedly targeted ISIS fighters in a tunnel. One might recall that we entered Afghanistan in 2001 (2001!) to route out Al-CIA-da, maybe the taliban. They’re both still there, now joined by ISIS. Success?
But we got to drop a really powerful bomb! That will surely fix everything…
One may also recall, from experience or a history book, that America has been in a (undeclared) war with North Korea for nearly 70 years. No one really remembers why. No mind.
Tensions have reached a fever pitch on the peninsula many, many thousands of miles from America. North Korea agitates America. America returns the favor. Unlike the aforementioned countries, North Korea has nuclear weapons. They say they’re willing to use them. Who really wants to find out it they’re serious.
So, with 10,000 troubles here at home, the U.S. government goes looking everywhere abroad for violence that does not concern us. And they have found it. We now face a potential nuclear war on two fronts against three potential enemies…
Please keep prepping. The long odds are that things will be fine (if that’s the right word). If not, then they will be very bad.
Happy Good Friday and I hope Easter Sunday finds you all happy and safe, rejoicing in Eternal Glory far removed from the utter and incomprehensible stupidity of our world.
