Making War Great Again: 5 Signs We’re Headed Toward a Major War

Editor’s Note: The media is purposefully overlooking these points and baiting left-right division based on identity politics and inane “non-news” like Kellyanne Conway wearing shoes on a couch in the Oval Office. Anything to keep the populace at large distracted from the bigger point that we’re being marched toward another big war.

In January of this year, former Soviet Union leader Mikhail Gorbachev warned that the whole world is preparing for war. There are many indicators that back up Gorbachev’s assertion, but to discuss them in their entirety would take a dissertation or two. Instead, we have put together a list of the five most obvious signs of impending war currently being overlooked by the media. As a result of these oversights, the public is also missing them.

1. Travel Ban

The Trump administration’s travel ban, which targeted seven majority-Muslim nations, makes little sense in the context of fighting international terrorism. A Department of Homeland Security report already found no evidence of any extra threat posed by the nations on the travel ban. Conversely, a Saudi official has admitted Saudi Arabia’s longstanding practice of supporting terrorism as a political tool, yet Saudi Arabia managed to escape the list. So did Turkey, a country that has extensively aided ISIS fighters; Qatar, which has spent immense amounts of money arming fanatical jihadists; the United Arab Emirates (where the majority of the funding for the 9/11 attacks passed through), and the list goes on.

Instead, the travel ban was purely political. With help from the anti-Trump media establishment, the ban worked wonders separating the American public between those who oppose Trump’s every move and those who support him wholeheartedly in his quest to “make America great again.” But little attention was paid to the reality of the ban.

Six of the seven countries on Trump’s travel ban were featured in a memo that was adopted shortly after 9/11 that detailed how the U.S. was going to topple the governments of seven countries, as exposed by four-star General Wesley Clark. The countries featured on Clark’s list were Iraq, Libya, Lebanon, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Iran.

Any accusations that Clark’s list is a conspiracy theory are completely debunked by the events of the last two decades. Iraq was invaded in 2003, and the U.S. has been backing warlords in Somalia and bombing the country for some time now. The Pentagon is reportedly considering expanding U.S. involvement in the African nation. Israel was eager to take out Lebanon in 2006 but failed to do so, though Israel warned just last year that the next encounter with Lebanon will be “ferocious” and “terrible.” U.S. troops are on the ground in Sudan. Libya was destroyed in 2011, which paved the way for the transfer of weapons and fighters into Syria, a country bound to Iran by a mutual defense agreement.

In the context of Trump’s travel ban, Lebanon is replaced by Yemen, the latest addition to the playbook amid fears that an insurgency within Yemen could place an Iranian-aligned government on Saudi Arabia’s border.

Including Iran in the travel ban — despite the fact Iran is not currently embroiled in a major civil conflict of its own, is not currently bombing any other countries, and is one of the major partners in the fight against ISIS — demonstrates something more sinister at play than mere concerns regarding international terrorism.

2. Trump’s anti-Iran rhetoric

The Obama administration, having successfully taken out Libya in 2011, was tasked with finishing the job in Syria and toppling the Assad regime. Overwhelming support for Syrian rebels battling the Syrian government was replaced by urgent calls to intervene directly in 2013, but Obama failed to gain international and public support for airstrikes on the Syrian government. Russia diplomatically put its hand up to offer a different proposal altogether, also warning that “[they] have [their] plans” should the American military decide to strike Syria as Obama intended. Any speculation that the real focus of the Syrian war was aimed at Iran was proven to be not just mere conjecture; Obama immediately thereafter warned Iran that just because the U.S. did not attack Syria did not mean the U.S. wouldn’t still strike Iran over its alleged nuclear program.

The Russian military intervened overtly in Syria in 2015, which only further foiled Washington’s plans for regime change in the country, as admitted by former Secretary of State John Kerry in a leaked audio recording.

As such, the Trump administration has appeared to move the focus away from Syria and directly back to Iran, in line George W. Bush’s approach when he was in office.

Trump has assembled a team that is “obsessed with Iran” and has accused Iran of being the biggest state sponsor of terrorism. Theresa May, the prime minister of the United Kingdom, also stated that pushing back on Iran’s aggressive efforts” to increase its “arc of influence from Tehran through to the Mediterraneanwas a priority.” Trump was likely thrilled by these statements, as May successfully secured 100 percent support for NATO from Trump the next day.

Following an Iranian missile launch, the Trump administration officially put “Iran on notice.” The U.S. government wanted to make sure the Iranians understood we are not going to sit by and not act on their actions.”

Just this past month, Trump warned in a tweet that Iran was “playing with fire,” and he vowed he would not be anywhere near as “kind” as his predecessor was to Iran. This is important because Trump has accused Iran of breaching its obligations under the nuclear agreement, though the nuclear agreement does not prohibit non-nuclear tests.

The nuclear deal reached in 2015 was viewed as one of Obama’s greatest diplomatic achievements, but in reality, it was doomed to fail right from the start. In the same way Libya was coaxed out of rapidly advancing its weapons programs before being bombed back into the Middle Ages in 2011, it may be the case that this diplomatic approach to Iran was always a smokescreen to give the United States more ‘reasoned’ leverage when attempting to convince the international arena that a strike on Iran was justified.

As outlined in the book “Which Path to Persia? Options for a New American Strategy toward Iran”:

“For those who favor regime change or a military attack on Iran (either by the United States or Israel), there is a strong argument to be made for trying this option first. Inciting regime change in Iran would be greatly assisted by convincing the Iranian people that their government is so ideologically blinkered that it refuses to do what is best for the people and instead clings to a policy that could only bring ruin on the country. The ideal scenario in this case would be that the United States and the international community present a package of positive inducements so enticing that the Iranian citizenry would support the deal, only to have the regime reject it. In a similar vein, any military operation against Iran will likely be very unpopular around the world and require the proper international context – both to ensure the logistical support the operation would require and to minimize the blowback from it. The best way to minimize international opprobrium and maximize support (however grudging or covert) is to strike only when there is a widespread conviction that the Iranians were given but then rejected a superb offer – one so good that only a regime determined to acquire nuclear weapons and acquire them for the wrong reasons would turn it down.” [emphasis added]

By claiming that through its missile tests Iran is violating a deal that Trump never supported to begin with, he can lay the groundwork for an all-out confrontation with Iran that could garner support from the international community, as well as the misinformed American public.

3. Iran dumps dollar

Currency is a major driving factor behind the wars of our generation. Iraq reportedly gave up the U.S. dollar in 2000 for the euro and netted a “handsome profit” for doing so. The U.S. military invaded in 2003 and immediately switched oil sales in Iraq from the euro back to the dollar. Iraq was also under heavy U.S. sanctions that spanned the course of at least a decade prior to the invasion.

Comparatively, in response to Trump’s anti-Iran rhetoric and the travel ban, Iran officially dumped the U.S. dollar. Iran has also been on the receiving end of sanctions since the Bush administration, and Trump has slapped fresh sanctions on Iran over the missile tests.

In the lead up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq, our television sets were rife with an unprecedented amount of disinformation regarding Iraq’s nuclear program and the threat it posed to the world. Conversely, Israel has been crying wolf over Iran’s nuclear program for at least two decades, yet no actual evidence of an Iranian nuclear weapons program has been produced.

The Trump administration also accused Iran of attacking a U.S. navy vessel – an attack that never took place.

Make no mistake. The Trump administration is laying the groundwork for a war with Iran by sowing the anti-Iranian seeds necessary to take the American public into another dangerous war in the Middle East.

4. Syria

While Trump appeared at first to have heralded a new approach to the Syrian conflict, namely that Assad should be left alone and the real focus of American foreign policy should be on defeating ISIS, the Trump administration is stepping up its Syria operation behind the curtains. Trump is reportedly planning to send troops to Syria, and he is not the only external power doing so. Iran’s regional arch-rival Saudi Arabia, which has incessantly accused Tehran of backing rebels in neighboring Yemen without producing any real evidence, is also reportedly sending troops into Syria.

Iranian-backed regime troops will not look favorably on any foreign invading force, particularly Saudi troops. Saudi Arabia has already made it clear that it intends to liberate areas of Syria from ISIS and will be on the ground to ensure that liberated areas [do] not fall under the control of Hizballah, Iran or the regime.”

How far will they go to ensure this? Not to mention, how can one country go into another and say that they want to ensure that the land does not fall back into the hands of the people governing that country?

5. Military drills and military alliances

The United States and the United Kingdom have already begun military drills that simulate a potential conflict with Iran. As reported by Russian-state owned news site RT, Iran has staged a “massive” military drill of its own, spanning 2 million square kilometers.

This preparation for war can be seen across the globe. Russia is also holding military drills as NATO troops and tanks encroach upon its border. Iran is seeking even closer military relations with Russia and North Korea. The Baltic states that border Russia are running drills, too, supposedly out of fear that the Kremlin will invade. Russia’s longstanding ally, China, is also currently running drills for its own geostrategic purposes.

Germany is reportedly seeking to increase its troop numbers to 200,000 troops even though such a move may put its neighbors on edge. The Philippines, having decided to give the political middle finger to the United States and instead forge closer relations with Russia and China, welcomed Russian warships to its shores in January of this year.

Looking at these military drills and alliances in the context of the above developments paints a very grim picture for where humanity is headed.

    Hmmm…. let’s see what’s exciting and new on the Sheeple today…

    Yep. War; Check. All gonna die; Check. Dollar sucks; Check. Politicians and people in general are assholes; Check. Still the same old thing.

    Sh*t. I was hoping for some naked pictures of that Melanoma chick what lives up there at that big white house now. Somethin’ excitin’ for a change.

    • Mysterious Man

      You say that like’s it a bad thing.

      • Cynical Old Bastard

        LOL.

        It’s a very bad thing.

        I really wanted some naked pictures of the hot woman. Maybe just a really nice dress. Or a picture of a really cool hound dog. Or any kind of hunting dog. A Terrier of some sort? A nice shotgun would do. Or a .22…

        Is that too much to ask of a president?

        • Lewie Paine
          • Cynical Old Bastard

            Guess that’ll have to do. Wonder if he can tote shingles?

        • Mysterious Man

          Maybe, although that can come when our country is fixed for the better, not for the worse.

          • Cynical Old Bastard

            Meh. My country is just fine. Some of the people are asholes but you find that anywhere. Don’t really know what the rest of y’all are doing and don’t really care… as long as you don’t start burning down our houses and stuff.

            You start doing that and you’re gonna have a real problem. We don’t care who you are or what cause you have.

            Whatever agenda y’all have to ” |fix” this I’m gonna suggest you stop and think about it first. Stop listening to the women and be a real man. Just a thought… and some real good advice, buddy. Ain’t nothing mysterious about that.

          • Mysterious Man

            First of all, the country is absolutely not fine. So I guess the:

            Rampant corruption in Congress
            Failed War on Drugs that is being perpetuated
            Proxy war that is being waged in Syria
            Warmongering that will inevitably result in WW3
            Rise of the police/nanny state
            Overreach of the federal government
            Indoctrination by our public schools
            Fiat currency printed by a private bank that is going to cause the crash of the global economy
            Excessive use of eminent domain and the institution of the NDAA and Patriot Act
            Non-regulated food supply that is killing us slowly
            Chemtrails being sprayed all over the skies
            Destruction of the environment
            Alarms being raised with PizzaGate
            Rampant hedonism and abandonment of traditional values
            Biased media that does not report events without spinning a narrative
            Potential ELE that is killing wildlife on the West Coast and beyond

            is absolutely nothing to be concerned about. Yes, our country is perfectly fine. We DO NOT have a serious problem on our hands and everything is just peachy.

            Second of all, where the hell did you get the notion that I listen to ‘wimmin’ about these issues? And what does being a ‘real man’ even mean? Does it mean slaving away at your 9-5 job to serve a corporation that sees you as number just to please your wife that has sex with other men and bore children who grow up to hate you and, let’s face it, aren’t even yours, just to get divorced and pay hundreds of dollars in alimony and child support?

            Third, my identity has nothing to do with my opinions. I value anonymity and see it as vital to a free society.

            Try harder.

          • Cynical Old Bastard

            Try harder for what? LMAO. To be like you?

            To explain that we dn’t really want to blow anything up That’ts easy. We don’t really. You really wanna come talk to our “wimmen?” They’ll explain it to you. I don’t really like mopping blood up but I’ll do it for the proper sandwich.

            You need to get your head on straight, son..

          • Mysterious Man

            You obviously can’t form a coherent argument against the points I made. Based on your rhetoric, I would even go as far as to label you a troll. For someone who ‘needs to get their head on straight,’ you can’t properly refute my claims. Wake up and stop defending the Empire.

          • Cynical Old Bastard

            I’m not here to argue any of your “claims,” son. I’m here to laugh at you.

            Yes. Folks like you amuse me. LOL. Deal with it, snowflake.

          • Maybe it’s because you’re too imbecilic too understand what’s going on. Instead of laughing at me, why don’t you contribute something to the conversation?

            If I’m a “snowflake,” then you are an ignorant parasite on society. If I have to deal with your incoherent Neanderthalic rambling, maybe you can deal with the fact that you have nothing to offer of value.

          • Cynical Old Bastard

            What “conversation?” I’m straight-up calling you an SJW Snowflake plant. There’s nothing ambiguous about that. No interpretation is necessary.

            Also, you were doing real good on the sentence construction and such… until the last part. It should read “you have nothing of value to offer.” Not what you wrote. It’s called a misplaced modifier… and I screen-captured it. I know how folks like you operate. Your kind likes to change shit up when we call you out on ignorance.

            Plus, you like your own comments. I mean… come on… are you that desperate?

          • All right, you got me. I’m an SJW snowflake plant sent to spread disinformation among the comments of The Daily Sheeple. I am in no way a lover of traditional American values, nor do I value states rights or the Constitution, nor do I believe in the gold standard. I only live to serve my Zionist masters and hate free speech in all forms. Donald Trump is literally Hitler, and Bernie Sanders is the best candidate. Socialism is the best policy; we need to tax those evil rich white men.

            /sarc

            Clearly, you haven’t taken the time to read some of my other comments. I’m the farthest thing from a snowflake, nor do I lean left on many policies. If I indulge in the game of identity politics, I am a classical libertarian with a few Conservative values. If I really am a plant, prove it. What have I said that labels me an SJW? If you can provide legitimate evidence, I’ll apologize for my rhetoric and concede the argument.

            I accidentally made a mistake with my grammar and your reaction is to screen cap it. What are you going to do with it? Report me? For what “crime” am I guilty of? You call me desperate for liking for my own comments (which is irrelevant), yet you screen cap someone who is anonymous on the Internet just for a typo that I didn’t even notice until you brought it up. You even complimented me on my sentence structure, so what does it matter that I did not make proper use of the misplaced modifier. So what? It was a simple mistake.

    The writer of this article is trying to lead us to believe that war is imminent, and it’s NOT. Very manipulative use of “facts” and a mixture of propaganda makes the points of this article seem credible, but we should all verify what is being presented with other sources. Example: “no actual evidence of an Iranian nuclear weapons program has been produced.” Really? How about Iran’s own admission that it was their right as a nation to pursue nuclear capabilities or the existence of centrifuges for the purpose of producing weapons-grade plutonium? GTFO.
