Ten Signs We Are Heading Towards World War 3

Albert Estein said, “I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but world War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.” Such a claim from such a credible source makes us want to think about something (anything) else.

Signs are emerging across the planet that a'stealth' World War III may have already begun with a series of events that lead some military and political experts to believe that the first several rounds of
an unconventional WWIII may have already been fired.

With news coming out of Russia that Vladimir Putin in Russia has ordered his Central Military District Troops into full combat alert.

While just over a week ago we learned that China has notified Washington DC that they had begun liquidating treasuries, we see a WW3 that is unfolding on many different levels and if recent indications are correct, we may soon see a massive expansion of global hostilities.

From financial and economic warfare to military's across the planet preparing at the very highest levels, from massive propaganda on all sides to the overthrow of systems happening before our eyes, we have reached a truly historical time in which all of humanity is in grave danger due to countless and repetitive extremely poor decisions by the few.

1. Global Recession.

World War I and World War II were very different from each other, but they had one striking similarity.

Prior to each war, economic recessions hit several of the countries involved. World War II famously brought most of the world’s economies back from the Great Depression, and World War I helped the US recover from a two-year recession that had already slowed trade by 20 percent.

Correlation doesn’t imply causation, but it’s worth noting which economies recovered earlier than others, which may have had a huge impact on the way things turned out.

By 1933, Japan had taken moves to devalue its currency, which led to increased exports and a resulting growth in their economy.

They pumped the extra money into weapons and munitions, which gave them a decided military advantage in the years leading up to the war.

Germany, on the other hand, entirely crashed, which made the Nazi and Communist parties take similar steps and earn overwhelming support among the populace. We’re seeing some similarities today.

While analysts are predicting yet another economic meltdown for Western countries, countries like Iran and Russia are looking to band together to boost their economies.

Among other effects, that could lead to a second unit on Iran’s nuclear plant; Germany’s massive internal spending in the 1930s pulled it out of the Depression faster than America or the rest of Europe.

And the global recession hit Russia less than much of the rest of the world, due in part to its exports of a quarter of the natural gas used by the entire European continent And then there’s China.

2. Unexpected Invasion.

On February 27, 2014, Russian soldiers strapped on their marching boots and took over several airports in Crimea.

As this is being written, roughly 6,000 Russian troops are moving across the Crimean peninsula and forcibly taking operational control of military bases, communications centers, and government buildings.

This is an invasion that has been a long time in the making, and it’s certainly not the first time Russia has made power plays in the Ukraine.

Ever since 1783, Ukraine and Russia (for a time the Soviet Union) have played hot potato with Crimea, leaving a bubbling brew of split nationalism struggling to coexist on the little peninsula. But the arrival of Russian troops is just the most recent step in a tumultuous few weeks for Ukraine. The country has seen its Russia-sympathizing president, Viktor Yanukovych, become a fugitive, a Russian citizen become the Crimean city of Sevastopol’s mayor, and an emergency meeting of Crimea’s parliament elect Sergey Aksyonov as the new Prime Minister of Crimea at gunpoint.

Aksyonov has declared that he will follow orders from the ousted Yanukovych, who is currently seeking refuge in Russia. The country’s politics are in tatters.

3. Distribution Of War Guides/Manuals Among Lithuanians.

28th October, 2016, Lithuanians have been handed manuals telling them what to do in the event of a Russian invasion, it has emerged.

Some 30,000 guides have been distributed around the country telling its 3million residents that 'attention needs to be paid to the actions of the neighbouring country - Russia', CNN reports.

The 75-page booklet, called 'Prepare to survive emergencies and war', urges citizens to 'have the will to resist' if Vladimir Putin's forces attack.

Extensive guides range from how to recognise Russian tanks to step-by-step survival tricks, including using condoms to help transport food and water.

Pictures in the guide show survival kits, advice on how to keep warm outdoors and information on how to use a compass and map.

4. Russia Presence In Syria.

At the time of this article’s writing, the Syrian skies are crowded with Russian fighter jets.

It’s estimated that Russia has carried out at least 55 airstrikes over various ISIS camps.

ISIS is regarded globally as a manifestation of pure evil, so one might question why a Russian attack against them would be bad.

One of several issues here is that Russia isn’t the only military presence in Syria a faction of the U.S army is also stationed there, with their own agenda.

The differences between Russian and American military agendas in Syria are too vast to fit this entry, but an important factor here is that Syrian airspace has become crowded, and there’s an increasing risk of an air crash occurring between the two countries.

It almost happened already a U.S. F-16 fighter came within 20 miles of Russian warplanes.

At the speeds they were travelling, the warplanes could have crashed within 30 seconds. An accident of that magnitude can potentially lead to a misunderstanding of intent that could snowball into a major conflict between the two superpowers and their global allies.

5. North Korea.

North Korea tends to get relegated to the back row in discussions on world powers. They’re potentially dangerous, sure, but it’s a short-range type of danger, similar to the way you can still skip away from a mugger with a knife.

But turn your back for too long, and that mugger can sneak up and give you some scars.

Aside from the three nuclear tests they’ve conducted since 2006, North Korea is said to be developing a mobile ballistic missile that could potentially cross the ocean and strike the U.S.

North Korea is still firing missiles in South Korea’s direction for no good reason.

The most recent launch was March 2, 2014, they fired more before that.

With a range of about 500 kilometers (300 mi), the missiles won’t reach far just to, say, Japan or China, South Korea, or Russia. And since they’re nestled right in the center of three of the biggest threats to peace at this time, they could purposely or not stir up something bigger than themselves, like dropping a starved weasel into a den of sleeping bears.

Most frightening of all, North Korea is building a nuclear arsenal. It’s unlikely that they’ll ever lead with a nuclear attack, but if there’s enough chaos going on around them, it’s not impossible that they’ll try to slip one into the mix.

Some believe that North Korea is all bark and no bite, that all of their provocations are carried out so that the global community will give them what they want in the hopes of keeping them stable.

But that’s all speculation, North Korea is a wildcard, and the worstkind of wildcard one with nukes.

6. Iran.

While tension rises on the Eastern European front and Southeast Asia is mired in an explosive territorial dispute, rumors of war are also being whispered in the Middle East specifically, Iran.

But is Iran any real threat? Depending on the spin, it’s easy to think so.

In January 2014, Iran dispatched a fleet of ships toward US national waters. The Senate has decided that unless military action is taken, Iran's nuclear development will continue unchecked.

And on February 12, 2014, Iran’s military chief answered that claim by declaring the country’s willingness to go toe-to-toe with American forces, on land or at sea.

It sounds like a crisis in the making, but it’s not as bad as it seems. Those “warships” were a rusty frigate and a supply boat, the White House in no way backs the Senate’s bill, and while Iranian general Hassan Firouzabadi did threaten the US and the “Zionist regime” (Israel), it’s worth remembering that they’ve done so plenty of times in the past.

Another point of contention is Iran’s military force. Including paramilitaries, Iran states that they have 13.6 million people who can pick up a weapon at a moment’s notice.

While that number is probably exaggerated, it doesn’t matter much anyway World War III, if it happens, will be mostly an aerial war dependent more on long-range technologies than close quarters combat.

And that, surprisingly, is an example of why not to count Iran out of the picture. They have an air force of 30,000 men with several hundred aircraft, along with cruise missiles with a range of 2,000 kilometers (1,240 mi).

That’s plenty of range to hit US bases in the Gulf. But most importantly, continued attention on Iran, Syria, and other Middle Eastern countries is spreading the West’s foreign resources a little too thin, especially now that Russia won’t be any help in that region.

Donald Trump Even riled up his supporters in Florida during campaign, saying Iranian ships harassing the US Navy would be 'shot out of the water' under his presidency.

'With Iran, when they circle our beautiful destroyers with their little boats and they make gestures at our people that they shouldn't be allowed to make, they will be shot out of the water,' Trump said.

*.There have been four confrontations between US and Iranian ships in the Persian Gulf in the past month.

7. Territory: Senkaku Islands.

World War II didn’t suddenly flash into existence; it edged its way into the world consciousness one little bit at a time, like a slowly rusting bicycle, until war was officially declared.

While it’s easy to put the conflict into the simplest terms, a lot of factors combined to make up what we now view as one war.

The years leading up to the war held a lot of indicators that, in hindsight, revealed aggressive countries testing the waters of what they could get away with.

Japan, Italy, and Germany were all involved in minor conflicts that the League of Nations couldn’t stop, such as Italy’s invasion of Ethiopia in 1935 and Japan’s chemical-infused invasion of Chinain 1937.

These days, China is reversing the balance by threatening an invasion of its own.

The territory in question is a group of rocks known as the Senkaku islands, which are located in the East China Sea.

The problem, of course, is that both China and Japan feel that the islands belong to them, and whoever controls the islands also controls shipping lanes, fishing waters, and a potential oil field.

8. Russia And Norway.

Russia threatens to NUKE Norway in response to allowing US Marines to deploy in the country.

orway has been warned by a senior Russian politician that it could now be a nuclear target after it allowed for the deployment of 330 US Marines. Frants Klintsevich, a deputy chairman of Russia's defence and security committee, said the deployment of US Marines at Værnes was part of a US build-up and made Norway fair game in the event of a nuclear confrontation.

The Local newspaper reported Mr Klintsevich said of the deployment of US Marines: 'This is very dangerous for Norway and Norwegians.

'How should we react to this? We have never before had Norway on the list of targets for our strategic weapons.

But if this develops, Norway's population will suffer. "Because we need to react against definitive military threats.

And we have things to react to, I might as well tell it like it is.'

9. Airspace.

China announced that they are changing their air-defense zone by increasing what they consider to be their airspace and taking space from Taiwan, South Korea and Japan.

A newly configured air defense zone in the East China Sea, a zone that they and they alone would control, to the point of shooting down aircraft that wandered into it.

The Chinese are pushing to see if others will push back, and yet again nobody is. China now claims the airspace above the Senkaku islands too and are threatening to push Japan out.

South Korea fought back by changing its air-defense zone and taking part of Chinese airspace. The Philippines have also had some of their airspace taken by China, and if the Chinese defend that airspace with terminal force, then the US army is contractually obliged to help thanks to a 1951 pact still being in place.

Add to this the fact that Japan, China and South Korea have been re-arming over the last few years.

Fights over air space and strategic islands are all that is needed to start another war.

10. Food Shortage/Drought/Enviromental Disaster.

According to the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), 842 million people in the world are currently undernourished.

The United Nations and World Bank claim there won’t be enough food for the global population by 2050.

If the food shortage reaches a critical mass and whole nations face death by famine, countries will not hesitate to attack each other over food supply.

In places like Calinfonia or Chad, If you flew over these areas ten years ago, and boarded the sameflight today, you would be seeing two vastly different landscapes.

Drought has effectively dried out a staggering amount of the state’s water supply. Should the drought persist, it will reduce the food output and turn the citizens into climate refugees.

If the problem isn’t a scarcity of water, it may be an excess. According to Michael Klare, Author of Resource Wars: “Rising sea levels will in the next half-century erase many coastal areas, destroying large cities, critical infrastructure (including roads, railroads, ports, airports, pipelines, refineries, and power plants), and prime agricultural land.”

If an environmental disaster destroys a country, its populace will not simply evaporate along with the last traces of their water they will need a proper place to stay, and if another country does not let them in they will have no choice but to break the door down.
