I’ll be very surprised if we make it to the end of the year without World War III breaking out. And, even if we’re lucky and make it into 2017, it’s no longer a matter of ’if’ but ‘when.’ Numerous warning signs are outlined below.

In late August, the German Interior Ministry advised its citizens to stockpile at least ten days of food and water in case of an attack or natural catastrophe “because initially a disaster might put national emergency services beyond reach.” The Telegraph reports that “Other provisions include setting up decontamination sites outside hospitals in case of nuclear, biological or chemical attack.” It sounds like Der Scheiße is about to hit der Lufter.

In other news, the Russians practiced civil defense drills between October 4th to 7th involved 40 million Russians and 200,000 rescue units. Yes, that’s 40 million. In Moscow alone, they already have hundreds of bunkers to accommodate all 11 million of Moscow’s citizens and many more are spread throughout the country. This drill was unprecedented in Russian history. The entire economy of Russia momentarily ground to a halt. The cost and logistics of this were staggering!

More recently, Vladimir Putin’s plans to visit France on October 19 were canceled after French President François Hollande denounced the Russians for bombing rebel forces in Alepo, Syria and upsetting Anglo/Amerika/NATO’s apple cart in destabilizing Syria. This is clearly hypocritical because “Paris is preparing France’s participation in the planned bombardment of Mosul, the main Iraqi city controlled by the Islamic State militia, that could force hundreds of thousands of Iraqis to flee.” After all, Western imperialist powers are the main forces responsible for the Syrian proxy civil war. Or, is this a convenient time for Putin to stay safely at home rather than be vulnerable abroad?

And lately, Zero Hedge reported that “Russian state officials and government workers were told to bring back their children studying abroad immediately, even if [it] means cutting their education short and not waiting until the end of the school year…” Ostensibly, the stated reason for this ‘repatriation’ is to avoid the optics of children of the Russian political elite studying abroad while their parents publicly support Russia. The added benefit is that it reduces the chance of Amerikan security forces taking these Russian students hostage and compromising their parents. In addition, repatriated students avoid retribution in a foreign country at war. As well, it lessens the chance of parents inadvertently revealing sensitive information in emotional overseas phone calls that are likely monitored.

Why now? It’s nothing new; Russian students have been studying overseas for years. It’s well known that Russians do love their children, but the haste and tone of this message is disturbing. So is the timing.

Russian history shows they’re unlikely to strike first. They don’t start wars; they finish them. Ask the Germans about the last World War. As well, Russia’s military capability is more defensive than offensive. It’s not designed to project power overseas which is why they have only one old aircraft carrier. And it has a bow ramp rather than steam catapults thus limiting jet payload.

On the other hand, bringing Russian kids home reduces any hesitation to launch a retaliatory strike if their children were still at an Amerikan university. More alarming is history shows that repatriating civilians and non-diplomatic personnel during tense times is often a warning of impending war.

The question is: do the Russians know something we don’t or are they simply sending a very expensive message to the Amerikan war-mongers that Russia is more ready and more capable of surviving WW III than the U.S. After all how many civilian bunkers does Amerika have? When’s the last time the U.S. had a civil defense drill? How many young Amerikans even know what “duck and cover” means or when to do it?

Again, why now? The increased Amerikan saber-rattling may be one reason. Amerikans recently stationed and commissioned live nuclear missiles along the Russia border in both Poland and Romania. Not to be outdone, Russians stationed Iskander missiles in Kaliningrad between Poland and Lithuania and S300 and S400 missiles within Syria.

Anglo/Amerika/NATO jets recently bombed a Syrian army unit killing 62. They called it a ‘mistake.’ Bombing for an hour is no mistake. It’s deliberate. They also destroyed a UN humanitarian convoy and tried to blame the Russians. The ass media fell for it, of course. The alt/right didn’t. More people, even Zombies are losing their trust http://www.usnews.com/news/articles/2016-09-15/distrust-of-media-at-highest-level-ever in the ass media.

The upcoming Amerikan election may be another reason the Russians are sending warning messages and preparing for war. Despite what the polls tell us, Trump is far more popular than Hillary. Poll results are easy to manipulate with over-sampling, manipulated wording, leading questions, dishonest adjustments, etc. Look at some of Trump and Hillary’s rallies in the pictures below.

The first three pictures below show Hillary can’t fill a gym or even a hall.




Below are pictures of trump rallies. You can see he fills entire arenas.



Below is an example how the ass media lies about Trump’s popularity. The picture on the left was taken two hours before the rally and purported to show little support for Trump. The picture on the right was taken during the same rally.


Both political parties are part of the ‘Establishment,’ and they’re deathly afraid of Trump. He can’t be allowed to win because both the Clinton and Bush crime family’s scams and swindles will be exposed so they’re doing everything they can to prevent the truth from coming out under a Trump presidency. As Bill Holter said, “These people are so narcissistic they probably believe (and have prepared so) they can survive a nuclear war because they are such “superior human beings”. We are dealing with absolute delusion here folks. DO NOT underestimate the evil nor the lengths these people will go to cover their tracks.” If Hillary is so far behind Trump that the election can’t be rigged in her favor then don’t be surprised if Obama cancels the election blaming the Russians for hacking the vote and thus providing another excuse to go to war.

Still another reason the Russians are warning about war may be the inevitable bursting of financial bubbles. Historically, stock markets and bond markets behave like a see-saw; one goes up, the other goes down. Because Central Banks’ unprecedented Quantitative Easing (printing money out of thin air) for an unprecedented length of time and unprecedented low interest rates also for an unprecedented length of time, stocks and bonds are both now in unprecedented bubbles with nowhere to go but down. When, not if, they finally let go, it will be an almighty crash such as we have never seen in history (notice I strained to avoid the word ‘unprecedented’ this time.)

In addition, many Western nations’ real estate, particularly Australia and Canada are also in bubble territory and ready to burst. The Canadian government recently changed tax rules for buying and selling homes in an attempt to cool off the housing market. Canadian homeowners and anyone interested in buying or selling might want to read Garth Turner’s outline of recent real estate tax changes here and here and here and here.

There are numerous other ‘Grey Swans’ (known Black Swans) clouding the skies. China’s “One Belt, One Road”  economic plan will neuter Amerika’s economy. The Eurozone is falling apart, first with Britain’s Brexit and now Italy’s upcoming “Italexit” vote in December to leave the EU. European banks are cratering with Deutsche Bank leading the charge with tens of thousands of lay-offs followed by Commerzbank.

And don’t forget that World Wars begin with economic warfare. The Amerikans fined Volkswagen $14 billion for manipulating diesel emissions. In retaliation, the EU fined Apple $14 billion (coincidence?) for their Irish tax evasion. In further escalation, the Amerikans fined Deutsche Bank $14 billion (another coincidence?) for their role in the (ancient history) mortgage scandal.

Gerald Celente often warns that “when all else fails, they bring us to war.” The Russians understand this all too well.

Given the numerous warning signs outlined above, I’ll be very surprised if we make it to the end of the year without World War III breaking out.

What to watch for? One is a false flag event that would need to surpass 9/11 in size. There’s no telling what it could be; a dirty nuclear device exploding in an American city or the sinking of a U.S. naval carrier or something horrendous involving Syria that could be blamed on the Russians.

There’s something else to watch for. Russians traditionally keep the lines of communication open until hostilities begin. When Russian foreign Minister Lavrov stops talking with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, you’ll know it’s about to hit the fan.

In the previous World Wars, two oceans spared North America. Now, satellites and missiles have turned vast oceans into mere puddles. North America will not be spared this time because there are no winners in a nuclear war between Amerika, Russia and China. Einstein was purported to have said, “I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.”

What can you do? You cannot stop the inevitable. However, you can prepare for it, but you’re quickly running out of time.

This website What To Do In A Nuclear Crisis has numerous helpful links. You might consider saving and printing some of them in case you can’t access them when the power grid goes down.

Another thing to do is build a Faraday cage to protect valuable electronics from being fried in an electromagnetic pulse (EMP.) I built one out of a metal garbage can to store portable radios (battery & hand-crank), Geiger counter, small solar panels (large 40 Watt ones still in cardboard boxes I double wrapped in aluminum foil as they’re too large for a gabage can), cameras, laptop, solar panel controller and power inverter, hand-crank lanterns, electronic watch and clocks.

About gerold

I have a bit of financial experience having invested in stocks in the 1960s & 70s, commodities in the 80s & commercial real estate in the 90s (I sold in 2005.) I'm back in stocks. I am appalled at our rapidly deteriorating global condition so I've written articles for family, friends & colleagues since 2007; warning them and doing my best to explain what's happening, what we can expect in the future and what you can do to prepare and mitigate the worst of the economic, social, political and nuclear fallout. As a public service in 2010 I decided to create a blog accessible to a larger number of people because I believe that knowledge not shared is wasted.

4 Responses to WW III Soon

  1. Brett Courtenay says:

    Wishing to be The Optimist in this (and other things) I would like to put forward the fact that NONE of the mentioned reasons are of such consequence or import to necessitate starting World War 3 which would in all likelihood NOT achieve anything except the collapse of Civilization the death of BILLIONS and the possible extinction of our Species.

    So please, let’s not even insult our intelligence by mentioning things such as Syria, The Australian Housing Bubble or possible exposure of Clinton/Obama Family secrets so terrible that it begs contemplation of initiating a World War!!

    Gerold…$150,000 Bucks says there will NOT BE World War 3 at the end of the Year…Decade or I’ll wager before 2050…if even then.

    Want to wage that bet? I’m happy to bet you this amount.

    Now let me confuse you completely and make a another bet which is almost the complete opposite of the one just made by me above.

    I bet you that World War 3 cannot occur ANY TIME in the future for the simple fact that it has ALREADY BEGUN!

    It started around 1750 AD with a phenomena called the Industrial Revolution but recently has become more pronounced and far more damaging.

    It is being waged between the Dominant Species on the Planet AGAINST the Planet and despite the possibility it could prove devastating to the Planetary Eco sphere and Global Bio-systems, the great Irony is whatever damage is taken by The Planet by the Aggressor (that would be us Hairless Apes) in time all harm caused will be but a distant memory as the Earth over time recovers.

    But we won’t be around when Earth restores itself…we of course would have died out long ago as the only major consequence (to us , anyway)of our stupid, fruitless suicidal actions and behavior that started , led and ultimately ended a War we should never have started and yet as Karma does and did made sure the price was our Species as part of those War Victims, of ourselves …Homo Sapiens, the not so dearly Departed.

    World War 3 or whatever number you may wish to ascribe it has either long begun or there won’t and will never actually be one…

    But if my Botany Bay 4 Bedroom 725 square meter house/property suffers a huge price collapse…I PROMISE to stock up on canned Water and Space Food Sticks for the inevitable Armageddon to follow as a result AND Curse the fact that I paid the Mortgage off years ago, to no avail or actual benefit as the Sky lights up impossibly Bright as 6 kilometers away, the Sydney CBD Melts in the Thermo-Nuclear response to such a large property value collapse as is and what becomes the Mad Maxian reality that awaits the few pitiful survivors of such an act!

    Only L.J HOOKER Real Estate can save us now…but I fear that even they cannot halt the “Great Obliterate of Real Estate” and consequent extinction of Humanity…due to unsustainable property price rises.

      I hope you’re right. I hope I’m wrong. But, hope is not a plan. I’m planning.

      A couple days ago I built a Faraday cage to protect vulnerable electronics.

      Yesterday, I bought a ‘Get Home’ bag as it’s about an hour’s walk from work (in the best of time) when my car’s electronics are fried by an EMP either from a high altitude nuclear blast or a major solar flare like the Carrington Event in 1859 for which we are overdue as they occur about every 150 years.

      You’re right, Brett; none of the events I mentioned and dozens I didn’t are not individually a cause of WW III. It’s the vast number of such unpreventable events all happening now that will force the moneyed-elite to take us to war because those in power never willingly give up their power. I read yesterday that the Chinese have also ordered their citizens to bring overseas students home.

      It keeps building toward WW III.

    Yup, I see everything you see also and I’m hoping my vision is wrong.

    • gerold says:

      You have no idea how much I hope I’m wrong.

      No sooner did I post this article than I came across another report that Russian forces have been ordered ‘staggered’ across the Russia to present a smaller target for nuclear missiles.
