Are you ready for war with Russia?

Are you ready for war with Russia?

Daren Epstein

Not that long ago people, especially those in government, were consumed with the most-significant crisis in world history, or so we were encouraged to believe – the so-called global pandemic, which, left to run its course un-diverted by government intervention, would end humanity as we knew it. So significant was the th-reat of this contagion, that civil liberties were suspended, businesses were closed, false-idols and talismans such as mRNA vaccines and masks were mandated across the globe. Freedom of expression was suspended, personal finances were seized, travel was limited and the promise of a “new normal” was foisted upon the public by the main-stream media as the only choice for our personal and collective futures.
Then, Vladimir Putin decided to invade Ukraine, and all public mention of the latest thing that was going to end all of our lives was replaced with the next thing that was going to end all of our lives. Unless, of course, we responded as a global community, which normally means the United States, European Union and elites at the World Economic Forum (WEF) will instruct the world community to do through their propaganda arms in the main-stream media. The rest of humanity, of course, is expected to follow along.
Like in 1950, when North Korea invaded South Korea, Americans scurried to find their handy atlas, or more likely an online digital political map to find where Ukraine actually is, before delving into deep analysis on social media as to what the global community should do to help our Ukrainian brothers and sisters. Vladimir Putin is an evil SOB. Anyone who questions that analysis is to be cancelled by the correct-thinking people who are the same deep thinkers who controlled the narrative during the last two years of the COVID psychosis. Instead of marginalizing and controlling the speech of legitimate medical experts we are now supposed to dismiss the opinions of every adherent to the Non-Aggression Principle, and every liberty-loving dissenter who is in any way skeptical of the perpetual war footing of the United States.
There are, of course, absolutely no subtleties to this latest crisis. We must accept what the legacy media and government mouthpieces tell us about the now issue, which will affect all of our lives if we do not take the side of the clean-as-the-driven-snow Ukrainians. Subtleties and details of the issue do not matter. That Ukraine has a large Russian population in Eastern Ukraine has no bearing on this discussion. That the Ukrainian Government is considered by many to be one of the most corrupt in the world is a minor diversion. That Ukraine may be responsible for bringing the borders of NATO right to Russia’s doorstep, when Russia claimed that as a security redline; irrelevant.
So brave is our war-hawk class, who mostly profit politically and financially from cozy relationships with defense contractors and lobbyists, that the usual suspects have taken to issuing threats for which they will never be asked to pay a personal price. Senator Lindsey Graham, bold warrior, called for the assassination of a sitting head of state, Vladimir Putin. Additionally, he called for sending fighter jets and air defense system to Ukraine. A collection of Western governments and Japan have imposed economic sanctions on Russia, which are very likely to have negative effects on Western economies and at the very least will not have their intended effect. They will only serve to make life more miserable for a greater number of people around the world. Warhawk Congresswoman Maria Salazar is calling for the United States to take actions in support of Ukraine against Russia which may lead to a war between the United States and Russia. If we take actions that she and her ilk support, the chain of events set off by that spark will occur so rapidly it will be mind boggling.
War with Russia means that the United States will quickly find itself on its own fighting against a very capable thermo-nuclear power. The Europeans will bow out almost immediately as their cities are threatened and they realize the United States has no capability to come bail them out for a third time. Powers such as China and India, sick of the heavy-handed nature of American foreign policy will at the very least remain on the sidelines. China will be very eager to pick at the scraps of the receding U.S. empire, already $31 Trillion dollars in debt, which would be very lucky to exit any war with Russia with a severe depression. Any assistance from allies of the United States seen to be complicit in American adventurism will pay a price. Japan, who recently sent non-lethal military equipment to Ukraine aboard U.S. transport aircraft, has just obliterated any chance of it getting back portions of the Northern Territories and such an action could make U.S. bases in Japan legitimate military targets in any U.S. war with Russia. China would certainly, at the very least, look at a war between the United States and Russia as an opportunity to move against Taiwan and perhaps Japan’s Senkaku Islands.
World War One began as the result of a series of miscalculations, which led to one of the greatest man-made catastrophes in world history. World War Two in a very similar manner resulted from nation-state reactions to a long chain of international miscalculations which led to another man-made catastrophe merely 21 years after the conclusion of World War One. The conclusion of World War Two saw the first use of atomic weapons in world history, by the “good guys.” If we run that script a third time, we may witness the total destruction of global society due to the miscalculation of some of the least-skilled human beings on our planet.
Nuclear holocaust will not happen all at once. However, this local conflict which has captured the attention of the entire international idiocracy, is no longer local. It is about to become a real international crisis, not just a convenient moment for leftists to virtue signal and wear their Ukrai-nian flag pins or war hawks a chance to thump their small collapsed chests with bravado. Serbia in 1914 could be Ukraine in 2022. A spark is a spark and it is always dangerous when it is too close to tinder.
If you think America had “war fatigue” during the Korean War, the Vietnam War, The Iraq Wars or the Afghan War, think again. When U.S. war ships are sunk and U.S. aircraft are shot down then things will get interesting. When the U.S. Government institutes a draft to answer the call to the worsening situation and the government taps into disproportionately lower class and minority kids to fill the ranks, all to feed the beast of a thoughtless military-industrial complex, fighting for something very opaque, the electorate may become a little put out. When cyber-attacks occur, the power grid goes down, when U.S. cities are hit with missiles on a regular basis, when food shortages and complete supply-chain disruptions bring normal life to a stop, maybe people will get decidedly flummoxed. When Russia threatens to use or actually uses nuclear weapons to make a demonstration like the United States did in 1945 in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, then maybe just a hint of war weariness will start to creep in.
This next war will not be like any other we have fought. We do not get to be the big bully going around the world smacking down whoever we want for whatever reason, protected by our oceans, knowing that we cannot get hit back. This time the adversary can pay us back in kind, and they will be more than willing to do so having watched the United States carry out its manifest adventures or misadventures of empire since the 1898 Spanish American War. If you want to continue poking the bear to support the globalist agenda in Ukraine, just be aware that the price could quite literally be the destruction of your entire society.
