Actions speak louder than words. Let me put it another way. Most of the time, what people do is much more important than what they say. This is especially true when it comes to government officials, because many government officials lie as easily as they breathe. Time and time again we are told that there is nothing to worry about and that our leaders have everything under control. But then we keep getting more signs that more war is coming. In fact, it seems that preparations are being made for scenarios that would have been unthinkable before.
Let me give you an example of what I’m talking about. On Thursday, we learned that the US government is spending nearly $300 million to buy radiation drugs…
The United States has stocked up on radiation drugs just weeks after Vladimir Putin threatened to use nuclear weapons against the West.
Officials said the deal, worth $290 million, was “part of ongoing work” and “has not been accelerated” by the Kremlin leader’s escalating rhetoric.
The drug being bought is known as Nplate and is used “to reduce bleeding caused by acute radiation syndrome”.
This is not a cheap drug. It is being reported that a single dose can cost “between $1,000 and $2,500”…
However, the timing will likely raise questions as this is the first time the US government has purchased Nplate.
It’s unclear how many doses the order covers, but the drug typically fetches between $1,000 and $2,500 per dose.
A nuclear war would be the only reason we would ever need such a high number of doses.
So why make such a big purchase if Biden administration officials are assuring us that there is almost zero chance of a nuclear conflict with Russia?
Something doesn’t add up.
Meanwhile, both sides continue to escalate the conflict in Ukraine.
The mainstream media keeps telling us that the “Ukrainian Army” is whipping up the Russians right now, but that’s not exactly accurate.
The Ukrainian army that existed at the start of the war was largely decimated as the Russians gained ground over months.
But now a new “Ukrainian army” is pushing back the Russians, and it turns out that this new “Ukrainian army” has a very high percentage of foreign mercenaries…
Eastern European mercenaries make up 60 to 70 percent of the Ukrainian army’s manpower near Lugansk, an aide to LPR Interior Minister Vitali Kiselyov said on Wednesday .
“In practice, 60 percent, in some cases, 70 percent of Ukraine’s military personnel are mercenaries from Eastern Europe,” he told Russia’s Channel 1 television.
Much has been made of the fact that there are English-speaking mercenaries involved in the offensive against the Russians, but the truth is that most of the mercenaries are not from wealthy Western nations.
No doubt our money pays for them, but most of the troops actually come from the poor countries of Eastern Europe.
If you can believe it, some actually make up to $3,000 a day…
Kiselyov also added that Albanian mercenaries were paid between 2,000 and 3,000 dollars a day, and mercenaries from European countries, between 35,000 and 40,000 dollars a month.
If you can stay alive, it’s a way to make a lot of money in a short period of time.
And in good measure, American taxpayers are footing the bill.
Another thing we are told that is not exactly true is that we are not likely to go to war with China.
We’re told this over and over, but meanwhile US officials are reportedly “stepping up efforts to build a giant arsenal of weapons in Taiwan”…
US officials are stepping up efforts to build a giant weapons arsenal in Taiwan after studying recent Chinese military naval and air exercises on the island, according to current and former officials.
The exercises showed that China would likely blockade the island as a prelude to any invasion attempt, and Taiwan would have to hold out on its own until the United States or other nations intervened, if they chose to do so, current officials say and ancient .
Why would we build a giant arsenal of weapons in Taiwan if there was no threat of invasion?
In fact, by arming Taiwan so heavily we are making an invasion more likely. The Chinese are getting angrier and angrier, but we keep provoking them.
Before I end this article, I want to talk about the rising tensions between North Korea and South Korea.
North Koreans really don’t like the new South Korean leader, and on Thursday there was an incident that made international news…
An unusually large number of South Korean fighter jets scrambled today in response to air-to-surface firing exercises reported by North Korean warplanes across the border. The incidents add to tensions around Korea, where a campaign of surface-to-surface missile launches continues as part of potentially provocative exercises on both sides of the Korean Demilitarized Zone, as well as in waters off the peninsula
South Korea’s Yonhap news agency reported that a formation of at least 12 North Korean warplanes “presumably conducted a firing exercise” today, with air activity “north of the inter-Korean air border.” The location of the drills took the North Korean aircraft from Koksan County to Hwangju County in North Hwanghae Province, a process that took about an hour, according to the Korea Herald. North Hwanghae Province is located at the western end of the border between the two Koreas.
Of course, this wasn’t the first time the North Koreans had done something provocative this week.
On Wednesday evening, they fired a ballistic missile into the Sea of Japan…
North Korea fired a ballistic missile that likely flew over Japan, the militaries of South Korea and Japan said Wednesday evening.
The unidentified ballistic missile was fired into the Sea of Japan, South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff confirmed to NBC News.
Things with North Korea seemed to improve during the Trump era, but now there has been a complete reversal.
The North Koreans have conducted dozens of missile launches in 2022, and there are rumors that they may soon resume their nuclear tests for the first time in several years…
As for North Korea’s missile launches, these are just the latest in a growing total, with the number so far this year reaching about 40, including a “super-large” intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). in march At the same time, there is continued concern among officials in both Washington and Seoul that North Korea is poised to conduct a nuclear test, its first since 2017.
I don’t think a North Korean invasion of South Korea is imminent.
But if China invades Taiwan, I think the North Koreans will be very tempted to make a move.
Although the United States is concerned about Russia and China, it would be a golden opportunity for the North Koreans to cross the border.
The South Korean military would be completely outmatched, and only a massive US intervention could save the day.
Let’s hope this scenario doesn’t play out anytime soon.
But no doubt, there is more war.
A war between Israel and Iran is much closer than most people would dare to imagine, the Russians will move many more troops into Ukraine to reinforce their existing forces, and I am convinced that the Chinese will move against Taiwan at some point.
There is no peace on the horizon.
The third world war has begun, but for now it is still in the early stages.
Unfortunately, politicians around the world are determined to show how tough they are, and that’s very bad news for all of us.
