Obama Risks WW III

Obama Risks WW III

by Stephen Lendman

WW I was supposed to be the war to end all wars. WW II for sure - fought to eliminate the scourge of fascism.

Its headquarters moved from Berlin to Washington. Never again became permanent wars of conquest - from Truman to Obama and whoever succeeds him.

One independent nation after another is targeted. Obama wages so many direct and proxy wars, it's hard keeping track.

America spends trillions of dollars for mass slaughter, destruction and human immiseration.

It threatens humanity's survival. Its combat forces operate in scores of countries worldwide.

They infest Eastern Europe menacingly close to Russia's borders. They're preparing for European war - possible US launched nuclear confrontation with Russia.

Put nothing past lunatics infesting Washington. They may end life on earth before they're through.

Stopping them has never taken on greater urgency. Ukrainian flashpoint conditions may ignite the unthinkable.

Washington and rogue EU partners keep supplying Kiev with heavy weapons. US combat forces are coming masquerading as trainers.

Expect resumed full-scale conflict to follow. Likely bloodier and more destructive than before.

Perhaps with US combat troops directly involved. Maybe shock and awe terror bombing aiding them.

Ukrainian conscription efforts aren't working. Desertions deplete military ranks. 

Ukrainians resist fighting their own people. Multiple mobilization efforts recruited what a Poroshenko aide called "alcoholics and dodgers, drug addicts and morons."

On Monday, Kiev-controlled Kostianynivka residents rioted after drunk junta forces in an armored vehicle ran over a woman with two children.

One child died. Another was injured. The woman is hospitalized in serious condition.

Angry residents pelted soldiers with stones. They cursed them. Fascist law enforcers got orders to use deadly force to restore order.

Nazi Right Sector thugs showed up. Gunfire followed. Crowds were dispersed.

Ukrainian security forces began arresting people randomly. Fascist regimes operate this way. Its scourge returned to Europe's heartland for the first time since WW II.

Kiev is desperate to fill ranks for more war on Donbass. Conscription notices are increasingly ignored.

Volunteers are sought. Supplemented by US, UK and maybe other NATO combat forces.

Heading perhaps for blitzkrieg war on Donbass. Minsk is dead. It was stillborn like earlier conflict resolution efforts.

Obama wants war, not peace. Maybe he'll set Europe ablaze ahead. Perhaps he's got WW III in mind.

Rogue states stop at nothing to achieve their objectives. None in world history match America's rage for global conquest.

It seeks it one ravaged and destroyed country at a time. It's turning planet earth into a raging cauldron of violence, instability and human misery.

US streets already are battlegrounds. It's just a matter of time before they resemble destabilized conditions abroad.

Maybe conflict will arrive on US soil for the first time since 19th century civil war - the bloodiest war by far in US history per capita, killing the equivalent of millions today.

America hasn't had a day of peace in its entire history. Conflicts continue raging at home and abroad.

Making the world safe for monied interests - at the expense of all others. US policy reflects pure evil.

Never in humanity's history has a greater curse existed. Powerful enough to destroy planet earth in a heartbeat. Reckless enough to risk it.

Ukraine may turn out to be a rubicon of no return. Washington gets increasingly closer to direct confrontation with Russia.

What Cold War politics went all-out to avoid looks increasingly likely now. US policy reflects madness. 

Lunatics in charge risk the unthinkable. So does mindless media scoundrel cheerleading rogue US policies.

Earlier weapons were toys compared to today's. Obama represents the worst of neocon extremism dressed up in demagogic phony populist rhetoric.

Nuclear armageddon may arrive before his tenure ends. Fail safe days may be over.

Challenging Russia militarily reflects madness. Setting planet earth ablaze may follow.
