The original Cold War spanned from 1947 to 1991; and in October 1962, the largest crisis of that time took place, the Cuban Missile Crisis. Now, according to a Russian newspaper, the Syrian crisis stalemate will lead to a ‘direct military conflict’ with the USA; and as a result, the conflict would lead directly to World War Three.

The US announced Monday it is “suspending its participation in bilateral channels with Russia” that had come about as part of the brief cessation of hostilities in Syria. Just before that occurrence, Russia announced it would suspend a post-Cold War deal with the US on disposal of plutonium from decommissioned nuclear warheads. The decision was explained by “the hostile actions of the US” against Russia.

In 1962, Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev decided to agree to Cuba’s request to place nuclear missiles in Cuba to deter future harassment of Cuba. An agreement was reached during a secret meeting between Khrushchev and Fidel Castro in July and construction of a number of missile launch facilities started later that summer.

On October 5th, 2016; Russia’s western missile forces are testing their battle readiness by practicing fire and preemptive strikes on critical enemy infrastructure, state news agency Itar-Tass reported.

In August 2016, Russia began amassing troops on the border of Ukraine, all while the US moved their nukes from Turkey to Romania. The recent coup in Turkey which was most likely staged by the USA and paved the way to destabilize the relationship between NATO and Turkey further.

In March 2016, The US announced it is deploying armored brigade combat teams and new equipment on NATO’s eastern borders. Around 4,500 soldiers per unit will be on nine-month rotations in the region starting in February 2017, the first such deployment since the end of the Cold War. The US has around 62,000 military personnel permanently stationed in Europe across 21 bases. The “new” brigade will rotate across Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Bulgaria, and Hungary, according to a statement from US European Command.

The events mentioned above are just random tidbits that have transpired over the past few months and are signs of a rapid destabilization of relations between the two countries. Meaning it is entirely plausible to compare the state of relations between the US and Russia to that of the Cold War. It is even more plausible to assume that the Syrian crisis stalemate could result in a direct conflict with the USA.

The oddity of timing, recently mentioned by Princeton Professor Julian Zelizer is the occurrence of an October Surprise, and how he claims that “We should all hold on to our seats.” Julian Zelizer suggests that a “national-security crisis” will unfold in the coming weeks and that both Clinton and Trump “might have to adjust their campaigns” to deal with an event that “could have a dramatic effect.” In other words, the globalists are planning an event that could have drastic implications for the USA and the World.

Given the Russian Newspapers statements and the prediction by political analysts across the globe, a crisis between Russia and the USA is very plausible. So likely in fact that Russian President Vladimir Putin is gearing up for war with the West.

Both sides of The New Cold War are gearing up:

1The USA

US secretary of defense Ash Carter aid the Pentagon was reviewing its “nuclear playbook” – investing in improving the country’s atomic arsenal to ensure against “terrible attacks” by Moscow.

“Russia has long been a nuclear power, but Moscow’s recent saber-rattling and building of new nuclear weapons systems raises serious questions about its leaders’ commitment to strategic stability, their regard for long-established accords of using nuclear weapons and whether they respect the profound caution that Cold War era leaders showed in respect to brandishing their nuclear weapons,” the Pentagon chief claimed.

Russia is currently in the middle of a four-day-long nuclear evacuation drill involving 40million civilians, 200,000 emergency workers and troops and more than 50,000 pieces of equipment.

According to Oleg Manuilov, the Director of the Civil Defence Department Ministry; “Training will be held from October 4 to 7 will be attended by more than 40 million people, more than 200 thousand professionals rescue units, 50 thousand pieces of equipment…”

“In practice, the notification will be worked out and collect the governing federal departments and agencies, executive bodies of subjects of the Russian Federation and local self-government”, – said Manuilov. There will be worked out action by the evacuation issue of personal protective equipment, sanitary, deployment obmyvochnyh points.

“In addition, the alert will be given civil defense structures In coordination with the regional and municipal authorities will be checked by the system of emergency population warning of disaster occurrence, or the threat thereof.” – Said Manuilov.

In conclusion, US and Russian relations are at levels not seen since the original Cold War. While both sides of the world are gearing up for war, it is the people of both Syria and the world in general that are in the cross hairs. Which leads to the question, shouldn’t we the people be gearing up as well?
