    Default The Last War

    Our Last War, Not Being Televised

    Hey fellas,
    long time no see.

    Doomsday is finally upon us. I state this not as a fact, but as an opinion based on logic, reliable intelligence and knowledge.

    It's been really great following your thoughts and exclamations, your conspiracy theories and your illuminating flames. I have learned a vast amount from this Hive, indeed I have truly experienced a revolution in my philosophical view within the continuum of this little place since its inception.

    My aspirations for the European Union are utterly undone. I love the people, I love its lands and waters and lives, I love the cultures and languages; but I abhor the system of inverted bureaucratic totalitarianism, run for the benefit of an Elite class, so venal, they are willing to sacrifice all our lives for their selfish goals.

    Call it capitalism, or imperialism, or whatever you're havin' yourself; this system is finally ticking around to its apocalyptic conclusion: like their doomsday clock, one that is a minute and a half too fast.

    In a nut-shell, on March 1st, 2018, Putin announced, that Russia has America outgunned.

    The Russian President said that Russia had developed its 'first strike' capabilities to unprecedented levels. Putin revealed a new suite of autonomous nuclear powered hypersonic ICBMs that have unlimited range and a slew of other global "game changing" weaponry. He also reiterated that Russia will never again fight an invader on its own soil; and warned the West (US, EU primarily) that they will respond to continuing attacks upon their military assets in Syria.

    This latest escalation in tensions between two nuclear armed superpowers, is part of a process, the previous flash-point being America's February 1st announcement in Washington's Nuclear Posture Review to develop a new "effective deterrent" in the form of smaller "more usable nukes" that could be used in a 'first strike' scenario. This announcement was a repudiation of the military doctrine of Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD) that has bound the peace between Russia and the US for the generations since the end of World War II: at least, in regards to nuclear weapons.

    On Sunday night Monday morning, 9th April, 2018, the Israeli air force attacked the city of Homs in Eastern Syria, killing several Syrian and Iranian soldiers. This is the latest in a series of indirect attacks by the West on Russia's assets in Syria. Russia, in conjunction with the Syrian army, have routed Western backed ISIS fighters in Eastern Ghoutha and were in the process of evacuating them, their families and their arms, when the latest in a series of allegedly "false flag" chemical attacks occurred in Ghoutha. This attack which occurred within the last 48 hours is being investigated by Russian and Syrian personnel, and an OPCW official is en route.

    24 hours ago Trump announced that the US would respond to the so-called chemical attack within 48 hours.

    One or more US Navy battlegroups are currently steaming toward Jerusalem, there to rendezvous with our Western counterparts (UK, France, Israel) currently en theatre. An hour ago a Chinese destroyer, the first confirmed component of their incoming battlegroup entered the Mediterranean via the Suez Canal and will likely rendezvous with Russian and Iranian naval vessels within the next few hours.

    That's four nuclear armed powers in a nascent Mexican standoff off the southern coast of Europe.

    I'll leave you with the chilling words of 40 year veteran Lieutenant-General Evgeny Buzhinsky speaking to the BBC recently:

    “Worse than a cold war is a real war. It will be the last war in the history of the mankind."


    In case this whole thing goes pear-shaped, I just want to cover all my bases by bidding y'all adieu.


    P.S. If any of you have any tips about how to survive a nuclear apocalypse, now would be a good time.

    Slow night.

    But not for the American Empire: there's chatter about numerous USAF bombers arriving at multiple locations in the UK and also in Italy.

    Meanwhile fmr presidental advisor Paul Craig Roberts is not pulling his punches: "There is no longer any doubt that the criminally insane government in Washington is driving the world to the last war."

    USS Harry Truman strike group sets sail Wednesday from Norfolk along with seven warships each armed with dozens of cruise missiles.

    The guided-missile destroyer the USS ‘Donald Cook’ has also left Cyprus and is moving into the eastern Mediterranean, according to earlier reports. The Arleigh Burke-class warship carries 60 Tomahawk cruise missiles on board.

    https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-...t-notification

    Late on Monday we reported that US Navy Destroyer, USS Donald Cook (DDG-75), equipped with Tomahawk cruise missiles, as well as the Aegis missile defence system, was approaching the port of Tartus in Syria, which doubles as the location for the Syrian logistics base of the Russian Navy. According to CNN Turk, the US destroyer was at a distance of 100 km from the port, as of Monday.

    To be sure, Russia is concerned, and seemingly angry, that another showdown may be imminent. According to Pravda, the Chairman of the State Duma Defence Committee Vladimir Shamanov said that the United States did not notify Russia of the approach of the group of US warships to the Russian naval base in Tartus.

    “A group of ships of the US Navy has appeared at a distance of 150 miles from the Tartus region. It is common in international practice potential participants of events in the area should be notified accordingly in advance. We have not been notified” the official said.

    THE SAKER discusses the options for the US/NATO going forward.

    To paraphrase,

    1. Repeat last year's attack on the Syrian Air Force base in Shayrat (the least destructive action).
    2. Attack more Syrian Air Force bases, communication nodes, air defenses. (This will escalate the bloodbath while allowing US/NATO supported rebels (ISIS and Al Queda) to regroup).
    3. Attack Iran (this would placate Israel and the Neo Cons).
    4. A full scale attack on Syria (involving the launch of hundreds of cruise missiles against civilian, military and key infrastructure targets (hospitals, transport hubs, ports etc.)
    5. 5) A deliberate attack on Russian and Iranian positions in Syria.

    Of course, a combination of the options above are possible. Roughly speaking options 1, 2 and 3 might (conditional) remain manageable. Only option 1 is (relatively) safe. Options 4 and 5 are absolutely insane and are likely to result in an extremely dangerous escalation.
    Guess what option Mr. Bolton will go for.

    Amid the loud war drums, the EU's air traffic control body, Eurocontrol, has issued a 72-hour Rapid Alert Notification to flight operators in the eastern Mediterranean - warning of possible rocket launches into Syria.
    There are numerous unconfirmed reports of US/NATO fighters in the skies over Syrian and Jordan borders.

    al Jazeera is covering it apparently.

    #Russia has asked #Iran to provide access to IRIAF's 3rd Tactical Fighter Base in #Hamedan to deploy its heavy bombers (probably Tu-22 or Tu-95), Il-78 tankers & use it as refuelling point for fighter jets which are planned to be deployed to #Syria soon. - via @maytham956

    Tolstoi, remarked in his opus, that wars gain momentum step by step, over time. I am sure he would be amazed at how quickly our final war escalated to a global extinction level event. How each provocation, each false flag, cascaded like falling dominoes towards our species' demise.

    And yet, here we are. Could we have done anything to stop this? I doubt it.

    We could have taken responsibility. We could have bothered our collective arses.

    Don't make assumptions, it makes an ass of u and me both.

    Of course PCR has some dodgy opinions, he loves his guns, that doesn't negate what he's saying.

    As for your lazy contribution on Zero Hedge, seems like a play the man not the ball knee jerk reaction not worthy of further comment.

    The architects of current standoff in the Mediterranean were in the North yesterday ostensibly to celebrate their achievements.

    Sorry if this spoils your lunch fellas but this is not a drill.

    This is the former ambassador to Syria, not a nut by any means.




    There are multiple reports of "Russian fighters buzzing US destroyers in the eastern Mediterranean".

    Donald Trump warned Russia to "get ready" after Moscow vowed to shoot any missiles fired at Syria down. "They will be coming, nice and new and smart," Trump tweeted.
    All of the flaws in the system become obvious.

    A twittering Nero in the White House heralding global extinction.



    It is the duty of the US cabinet to now declare the author of this tweet unfit to discharge his duties under the 25th Ammendment to the US Constitution. Before he starts World War 3. Take the nuclear button from his hot little hands #UNSC #RUSSIA #Syria

    Aircraft Carrier Faceoff: American and Chinese Carriers Both in South China Sea
    "China has deployed its Liaoning aircraft carrier with escorting warships near Hainan Island as the US Navy’s Theodore Roosevelt strike group enters the South China Sea, according to a Hong Kong press report.

    Sing Tao Daily said Thursday that the Nimitz-class carrier Roosevelt and the other warships of Carrier Strike Group 9 have ended a port visit to Singapore and are now sailing in the South China Sea."

    The Chinese recently showcased its new 'supercarrier' battlegroup in the South China Sea, seen only by satellite it was quite the display.



    As you can see the Chinese battlegroup is MASSIVE and is rumoured to have deployed new 'rail gun' technology on several of its vessels.

    'Rail guns' are electro magnetic ballistic weapons the prototypes for which have been in the making for decades.

    Joe Duffy is hosting a US Neo Con Democrat warmonger at the moment: he's calling for the West to intervene. Our Fourth Estate goes from strength to strength.

    Smile folks, you're paying for it.
