The Threat of World War III: The Great Unmentionable in the 2016 Campaign | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

The Threat of World War III: The Great Unmentionable in the 2016 Campaign

The most important issue in the US presidential election is the one neither of the two main capitalist candidates, Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump, is talking about: the increasing likelihood that the next US president will order direct military action against Russia, China or North Korea, all countries that possess nuclear weapons.

The mounting danger of such a war was underscored by the US bombing of a Syrian government military post on Saturday, killing dozens of Syrian army soldiers. The US claim that this was done accidentally—against a major, well-known Syrian military installation, the Deir ez-Zor Air Base—has no credibility. A similar US “mistake” could easily lead to the death of Russian soldiers and escalate into a full-scale military confrontation between the two powers that control 93 percent of the world’s nuclear weapons.

The corporate-controlled American media is complicit in maintaining a blackout on the mounting danger of war. While US forces conduct almost daily dress rehearsals on the Russian border with Eastern Europe, in the coastal waters adjacent to China, and on the Korean peninsula, the media diverts public attention to such comparatively trivial questions as Clinton’s bout with pneumonia, Trump’s brazen lying about his role in the anti-Obama “birther” campaign, and endless speculation on which candidate is gaining an edge in their mutual mudslinging.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

On his last paragraph, the writer is absolutely dead wrong; it was Hillary Clinton's campaign in 2008 where those rumors originated.

Of the two candidates, at this moment, Clinton seems the more war-centric, particularly against Iran, and Trump appears to want to ratchet down tensions with (at least) Russia, and perhaps Korea and China as well.

I am not exceptionally "giddy with joy" concerning the choices US voters have in our Presidential election; but right now, I am very much edging toward Trump, because he is a businessman, and is not part of the DC establishment.

I frankly think our country needs that right now.

And although I do want to see a woman president of this country, and soon, that woman most fit to run this country is not Hillary Clinton; she comes with more moral, financial, and emotional "baggage" than does Kim Kardashian on a photo shoot!!
