Biden and NATO Evoke an Inevitable WWIII Against Russia

America Still Prefers to Speak Softly But Carry a Big Stick

A calamity of even greater cataclysmic proportions and consequences is either soon to break out in the war in Ukraine or sanity somehow finally will prevail against all odds, with all the combatants suddenly finding a way to end the conflict without continuing to kill themselves and, in the process, potentially all the rest of us.

America’s Neo-Con radicals and their allies in the world can feel the war slipping out of the grasp of their control, even in spite of the gross billions of taxpayer monies stolen from the citizenry of the entire Western World, without their approval or express permission; not to mention the massive amounts of military weaponry paid for by the citizens themselves for their own nation’s safety and protection, rather than shipped off to the Ukraine Armed Forces without any popular vote, plebiscite or referendum of any kind.

Citizens and politicians alike in the West remain asleep at the wheel for all intents and purposes of all the monies and weaponry that have been used so far to endlessly fund literally all the materials of war, as well as the infrastructure of Ukrainian society itself; of which the majority of monies never reach the people or armed combatants themselves because the monies are continually being clandestinely siphoned off to war profiters, oligarchs, black-market dealers and politicians. The Corrupt Game of War continues to be played out, while everyone just shrugs their shoulders, shakes their heads and looks the other way, like helpless deer, frozen in the glare of the on-coming lights and the potential grizzly death that awaits.

After over a year of raging, murderous brutal slaughter of men, women, children and the decimation of whole species of non-humans life, the populace and politicians alike still remain ignorant and at sea as to what to do about it; or even if they did they already know their neo-con leaders and governments clearly never have had any mind to stop the war other than with: the sudden assassination of Zelensky or Putin themselves; the total collapse of Ukraine or Russia; a predictable total WWIII nuclear end game, or; whatever subsequent fascist rule finally will take over the whole world.

Thus far, the ideologues have tried everything in their power to prevent Russia from declaring victory with its Special Military Operation (SMO). There never was any consideration remotely given by Biden, the U.S. and NATO to ever sign a peace deal of any kind through diplomatic negotiations.

Finally, in desperation, to try to save face, they attempted to float the ridiculous phony ploy of turning the war into a so-called frozen conflict; like the stalemate that put a hold on the Korean War that actually never really ended; with over 30,000 US military forces still occupying Camp Humphreys, the world’s largest overseas US military base, located near the South Korean capital of Seoul. The Russians summarily laughed that proposal right off of the table and into the trash can of history.

But now the combatants on both sides have begun to resort to the ancient primitive strategies of brutal, no holds warfare by trying to assassinate the other’s sides leader, with the belief that if you cut off the head of the snake, you will kill the whole body. But that’s old school thinking. There already are too many crazed mad men and women now on both sides, equally prepared to ‘push the button of doom” quicker than the next guy.


Ukraine Sovereignty: A New World of Order Or Disorder for the Human Race?

The eminent Author-Journalist Patrick Lawrence recently pointed out in a piece, “Count the steady advance among non-Western nations towards what we now call a new world order. This is the single most momentous turn in history’s wheel that will define our century.”

But to listen to the speeches and pronouncements of those others in the power and policy cliques in Washington, like Fiona Hill, a former U.S. National Security Council member, and senior fellow of the Brookings Institution, one would think the emergence of powers like China, Russia and other Non-Western Nations, in such a multi-polar world, are the real dangerous elephants in the room, representing nothing more than One Step Forward and Two Steps Back for the human race and stability of any new world order.

Yet what China and Russia’s efforts are all about is just the opposite: to support and build a different kind of multi-polar world with the help of non-western allies, such as the BRICS and other non-western nations who support the completion of world projects like the Silk Road.

But, now, returning back to the middle of the murderous, potential WWIII theatre in Ukraine, this war already has spread so much dissension and chaos throughout the entire world, in any number of economic, financial, political, ideological ways; while Biden and Company continue to resort to playing hardball towards all those who oppose the American way of life that he and those like Fiona Hill represent, that make the betrayal, duplicitous lies and deceit of the sabotage of the Nord Stream Pipeline look benign by comparison of what still lies ahead.

Biden, as the ‘Czar’ of all the fascist, Neo-Con NATO warmonger forces in Ukraine, has now given the green light to the some 31 NATO Nation members:

Albania, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Czechia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Montenegro, Netherlands, North Macedonia, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkiya, United Kingdom, and the U.S. ‑ to begin sending to the Ukrainian Air Force as many of their latest F-16 fighter jets, of which there already exists approximately 2,200 F-16’s in NATO’s collective air forces.

Perhaps, as the rapid escalation of the hostilities continues, and the war simultaneous worsens, and Biden & Company’s new ramped-up WWIII war strategy instead ‘heads south’, who knows, but maybe even some of America’s most deadly combat fighters in the world, like the cutting-edge, 4th Generation F-34 jet fighters, will also be added to the F16’s in an attempt to totally dominate Russia’s air superiority.

Already, as a threatening prelude to Biden’s May 19th virtual declaration of WWIII, Biden, has taken a page right out of President Teddy Roosevelt’s old imperialist war manual, and aggressive philosophy of “Speak Softly But Carry a Big Stick”. On May 24th, Biden sent America’s newest, most expensive, state-of-the-art sea power, the 13.3 billion-dollar air craft carrier, the USS Gerald R. Ford, to sail into Oslo, Norway, on its first historic so-called Good Will Tour, armed to the teeth, menacingly-close to NATO’s frontlines with Russia.

Later, the plan is to then sail into the Arctic Circle for several months duration, as part of Operation Silent Wolverine, with a carrier strike force of 90,000 military personnel, some sixty combat ready aircraft, and 20 ships from nine nations (U.S., Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Netherlands, Spain and Sweden); including: Canada’s HMCS Peter Montreal (FF336); Denmark’s (HDMS Peter Willemoes (F362): Spain’s ESPS Alvaro de Bazen (F101); France’s ES Chevalier Paul (DB21); Netherlands HNLMS De Zeven Provincien (F802) and HNLMS Van Amslel.

The United States has further expanded its Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Force Group; with the George H. Bush Carrier Strike Force, operating off the coast of Italy, set to provide relief for the Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group..

The USS Ford will be conducting training exercises with the Norwegian armed forces in the coming days and weeks, while the Russian Embassy in Oslo has pointedly gone on the record to curtly note, “There are no questions in the Arctic North that requires a military solution, nor topics where outside intervention is needed.”

USS Gerald R. Ford (Cvn 78) the Biggest & Deadliest Warship Afloat in the World

The Multi-layered Ship Defense Systems of the USS Gerald Ford has the awesome capacity to use: interceptor missiles and sensors to attack and destroy any and all rocket-propelled enemy drones, aircraft and surface threats of all kinds that Russia or any other enemy could send against it.

Before steaming into Oslo, it underwent a Battle Systems Ships Trials as part of its combat readiness training that included: simulated and active live threats to defend itself in any great power ocean war scenario. It also underwent defensive training against rocket-powered rockets and remote-controlled high speed maneuvering surface targets.

The USS Ford is geared to defend against an entirely-new sphere of enemy attack with its cutting-edge defense systems, such as: the Rolling Air Force Missile; Evolved Sea Sparrow Missiles, and; MK-15 Phalanx Close-In Weapon System, capable of firing hundreds of armor-piercing tungsten bullets per-minute. Its Sea Sparrow ESSEM Block II missile is designed with a unique “sea-skimming mode that enables it to descend close to the surface, can destroy adversary anti-ship missiles moving parallel to the ocean’s surface, above the waterline. The ESSM Block II can skim the surface and eliminate any entirely new sphere of attacking enemy threat. Its CIWAS Weapon System can fire hundreds of small metal bullets at any incoming drones, missiles or helicopters.

The USS Gerald Ford, as well, is capable of carrying up to 90 aircraft, including the super 4th Generation F-35 jet fighter, currently the deadliest in the world, as well as: F/A-18E/F Super Hornet Fighters; E-2D Advanced Hawkeye’s, EA-18G Growler electronic attack aircraft and MH-60 R/S helicopters, as well as unmanned air and combat vehicles.

The intended message and unambiguous threat by the presence of the USS Gerald Ford and its vast armada of war ships isn’t lost on President Putin and his military staff who already have vociferously lodged repeated protests to the UN and in the world media.

See these:

While this thinly-veiled ‘Good Will Tour’ by the USS Gerald Ford and armada continues, on March 28th, all of NATO’s air forces also participated in an international air force exercise called Frisan Flag at Leeuwarden Air Base, Netherlands.

Exercise ‘Frisan Flag’ is a major NATO multi-national annual aerial exercise over the North Sea and skies above the Netherlands, Germany and Denmark, similar to military ‘Flag’ exercises, such as the ‘Red Flag’ in the U.S., and ‘Maple Flag’ in Canada.

During ‘Frisan Flag’, air crews, twice daily, fly missions to prepare air crews for complex hostile environments, including missions that occur in high-intensity conflicts. Participating multi-national air crews plan and execute complex offense and defense training in realistic war scenarios.

Interestingly, in the lead up to WWII, the pilots of the German Luftwaffe, under Nazi Field Marshal Hermann Goring, also used Leeuwarden air base as a secret training base for the Nazi’s Messerschmitt fighters and Stuka bombers, and now Ukrainian pilots are likewise being trained there, as well, for future combat. Could this be history repeating itself?

Previous air combat units that have participated in Frisan Flag operations, as well, include: German Luftwaffe F-4 Phantoms; Finnish AF Boeing F-18c’s; Swedish AF Saab Jas 39 Gripen fighters; Belgium AF f-16 AM’s; Royal Netherlands Air Force XF-16ML’s; Polish Air Force F-16 C’s; French AF Mirage 200D’s; Royal Air Force Tornado GR-4’s; German Luftwaffe Euro Fighters; Swiss F/A-18C’s, and; the U.K.’s Dassault Falcon 20’s.

In 2023, Frisan Flag air combat participants also included: F-16s and AS 532U2’s from the Netherlands; Rafale and Mirage M2000’s from France; F-16CG’s from the U.S.; Eurofighter Typhoons from the U.K. and Eurofighter Typhoons from Italy; with even more Eurofighters from Germany and supporting E-3A AWAC’s of NATO.

Furthermore, Biden has now also encouraged NATO’s leaders to aggressively expedite the vigorous training of Ukrainian pilots in the immediate combat operations of their F-16 fighter jets against Russia’s Armed Forces, the Separatist Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics, as well as the Crimea itself. Biden’s latest declaration of war against Russia is proof-positive of how duplicitous the flagrant intentions all along have been of America’s ‘War Party’ of radical Neo-Con Democrats, Republicans and their NATO allies. Clearly, this mobilization has been in the planning stages for some great time.

Dangerous Consequences of Biden’s Introduction of F-16 Fighter Jets

The training of Ukrainian pilots to effectively operate the F-16 fighter will take months, if not longer, let alone the same given lengthy-training required for the supporting ground crews, creation of adequate runways, maintenance facilities, etcetera, etcetera.

Which means, as a stop gap to put further pressure on Russia’s military actions, NATO countries will have no choice but to risk calling for volunteers from among their own pilots and air crews to join Ukraine’s so-called ‘International Legion for the Territorial Defense of Ukraine’. By now, if this isn’t a clear enough provocation of war, what is?

But, according to Russian Lieutenant General Igor Yevgenyevich Konashenkov, chief spokesperson for the Russian Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, these foreign fighters who actually do engage in the combat zone, legally, will be considered as nothing more than mere “foreign mercenaries”, “with no protection under international law who, at best, if captured, can expect to be prosecuted as criminals.”

Whether legal or not, such an unmistakably-clear act of aggression in the war would be but yet another outrageously-risky move, one-step away from invoking a total nuclear war with Russia. If such volunteer pilots and crew men were shot down and captured, they would obviously be subjected to a world-wide show trial, and treated as common criminals subject to possible execution. The world tensions these trials would create would be immense.

Meanwhile, U.S. CIA clandestine propaganda campaigns, through social media outlets like Telegram, already also are ramping up the clandestine training and recruiting of Russian dissidents within Russia itself to spy or, even worse, commit attacks within Russia itself. The war in Ukraine will only continue to become even uglier as it dangerously deteriorates all the more and continues to spill across Russia’s borders.

Very abruptly, in any number of unprecedented, unpredictable ways, the continued aggressions of a 1,000 cuts will continue to lead to other dangerous unpredictable, unexpected tensions that could instantaneously turn into any number of nuclear flash points.

Biden’s ‘green light’ to NATO is an unmistakable provocation and signal to Russia and its allies that “the gloves are now off”, and that America and NATO are prepared to escalate Russia’s SMO to whatever it takes, whatever the consequences.

Good luck for any hope of diplomatic peace negotiations to ever try to bring an end to all the hostilities. Those hopes have all been just blown out the backs of a growing number of hostile attacking F-16’s after burners, as it were.

The causes of WWI and WWII, and the unprecedented slaughter and destruction of human beings, human society, that of the natural world and all non-human life, have been endlessly debated since they each ended, physically but not ideologically. In the case of WWI, the brutal assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of the Austria-Hungary Empire, is often simplistically described as the spark that propelled Europe into the greatest conflict the European continent had ever known up to that time, that eventually sucked the rest of the entire world into its evil vortex.

The same could be said for the ‘spark’ that set off WWII: with a multitude of similar complex desires by other world leaders prepared to dominate new territories and natural resources, because they still craved an ever-larger slice of the pie of whatever existing ‘spoils of war’.

The unquenchable greedy desire among nations to forever expand their empires is nothing new in European or any other nation’s history. Never has been nor never will.

Now, with yet ever-newer high-tech revelations in AI science, industry, military weaponry and ever more wild-fluctuations and imbalances in the corporate-financial world, the tinder is once more set at flash point for yet another WIII; by far greater than the previous two, that in slow motion, with every cut of a 1,000 cuts in Ukraine, continues to become more unbelievably-horrible with each news release.

The human world and its out-of-control societies simply haven’t learned a whit how to better the plight of human life and the conditions for life itself on Earth. Those historians, who manage to survive WWIII, will be left to once more debate for the next century or longer which one of the 1,000 cuts finally became ‘the spark’ that set off the ensuing catastrophe.

The same old entangled competing political alliances, high-tech militarism that led to primitive tit-for-tat retaliations; ever-snowballing unparalleled corrupt corporate greed and financial imperialism, similar to WWI & WWII; will all be future topics of ‘woe is me’ focus and endless debate as to what was the ultimate final one of the 1,000 cuts was it that led this time to the death of the human story on earth as we now know it.

Yet the Western World’s corporate press remains virtually silent – deaf, dumb and blind – about what the revealed truths are about the human condition that the war in Ukraine so far has revealed. They wouldn’t recognize or even report about what they saw, even if it stared back at them every time they looked at themselves in a mirror.

Their readership among the citizenry no different. Each day, they walk, hand-in-hand, down the garden path together, both simultaneously expectant and apprehensive towards what awaits them on their Big Day together. Both unsure of what all the unknowns are that yet await.
