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:
