It is inevitable. Man is the most aggressive and deadly animal in the world.
Unlike other animals who normally will kill only for food or in self-defense, man will commit murder singly or in a war with little provocation or motive. In fact, in the past 3,400 years the world has known only 200 years of absolute peace.
In many countries all over the world today, there is war. However, many are saying that the next World War will soon be upon us…
We need to be prepared as best we can, so that if times do get tough, we will have a better chance to survive the aftermath.
Although many of us have been hearing statements here and there from many well known figures regarding the possibilities of upcoming world war, a summary of statements as pointed out recently on WashingtonsBlog.com, bring some of it together…
Condensed version of a few quotes:
“We believe that war is an inevitable consequence of the current global economic situation.”
-Kyle Bass, Hedge fund
“We will be updating the Cycle of War. Obviously, it is time once again.”
-Martin Armstrong, former chairman of Princeton Economics International
“…a major war starting at the end of 2012 to 2013”
-Charles Nenner, Goldman Sachs analyst
“A continuation of bailouts in Europe could ultimately spark another world war”
-Jim Rogers, Billionaire investor
“We’re in the middle of a global currency war…The last time there was a series of competitive devaluations … it ended in world war two.”
-Marc Faber, investment fund adviser, manager
“We’re in a currency war…I see this as a replay of history…I see this as a lead up to world war.”
-Gerald Celente, Trend forecaster
Even a best case scenario, many are warning of massive social unrest as economies fail throughout the western world.
While some of these quotes may not be quite recent, the fact is that they said it…
“The global economic crisis could trigger political unrest equal to that seen during the 1930s,”
-Pascal Lamy, World Trade Organization
“social unrest may happen in many countries – including advanced economies,”
-Strauss-Kahn, International Monetary Fund
“there is a risk of a serious human and social crisis with very serious political implications,”
-Robert Zoellick, World Bank
There is no doubt that further digging would reveal many more quotes to support the notion of upcoming social unrest and probable world war, given the world’s present condition.
For those who have been following the real story of our present economic demise, you will not be terribly surprised when it unravels.
For those who have not spent the time or have not had the interest to discover the truth, and who have been only following the mainstream propaganda and who believe that Wall Street is a reflection of economic stability… these people will be stunned.
Except for those who have studied history and for those few who are still alive having lived through WWII, nearly everyone alive today has no comprehension of world war. We have become extremely desensitized being generational-y removed from those who fought in the last world war.
Modern warfare has also moved us further away from the horror of the results. In so many ways, war is so much ‘easier’ today, and similarly, WWIII will be that much easier to start… And let us not forget, the world has nukes.
We need to be ready. While we do not know how soon this will come to pass, we need to realize that when it does, EVERYONE will be affected.
Supply chains will be interrupted, which will devastate millions in more ways than one. We live in a “just in time” world of supply and re-supply. What people do not understand, is that when the supply is drawn down due to panic buying (or supply chain interruption), that it can take a very long time to re-supply given the limitations of manufacturing… and that’s during ‘good’ times. Imagine the results during world war…
We as a country (in the U.S.) do not manufacture anything anymore (almost anything), which is something that most of us know. What most of us don’t know is that should our overseas manufacturing supply chains go away, we are in worse than deep doo-doo. The Shite will definitely hit the fan at that point.
It is our responsibility as human beings to take action to ensure our survival, to do our best not to depend upon others, and to be reasonably prepared to suffer through tough times that may come our way.
It is our responsibility to see through the BS that is fed us on a daily basis so that we might realize the precariousness of the world we live in. Let’s just hope that the puppet-masters playing the chess game of world domination do not make a stupid move that causes our ‘checkmate’. A game ending ‘draw’ would be much better… however something tells me that’s not how it’s going to end.
