If America Was Trying to Start a World War, This Is How It Would Happen

Last Wednesday, U.S. President Donald Trump signed new sanctions into law against Russia, Iran, and North Korea. The legislation was supported so overwhelmingly in Congress that President Trump’s ability to veto the legislation was rendered completely ineffective.

Even anti-interventionist Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard voted in favor of the bill, once again proving that Republicans and Democrats always find common ground when it comes to beating the drums of war against sovereign nations who have taken very little unwarranted hostile action — if any — towards the United States.

But these are just sanctions, not acts of war, right? There’s nothing wrong with economically bullying other countries into submission over non-compliance with the current global order, right?

Not quite.

Sanctions are always a prelude to war. Though few are aware, the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941 was arguably in response to America’s attempt to cripple Japan’s booming economy through embargos and asset freezes, ending Japan’s commercial relationship with the United States and provoking the desperation that led to their attack.

Good article.

Learn the truth about the government that rules over us, before it is too late.
I take that back.
It is already too late.

But learn the truth anyway, so you will understand what is being done in your name.

Stop joining the military, and encourage all young people to stay away from it!

Its a third world nation. Led by one isolated and crazy spoiled brat who is used to being told what he wants to hear by his military....."We will annihilate the enemy in a sea of fire and will destroy them down to the last man!!". He couldn't supply his troops for even a day (air power shuts that down). He may not fully appreciate just how badly we will decimate his country or how easily we could destroy his entire military structure. The days of this nut case flaunting his scary weapons and watching the world cower and hand him more money (to just slow down, please) are over.
It WILL come down to war. He won't shut up and settle down and Trump ain't joking. Does China get involved?

Buy some extra water and food this week. Just in case.
And, remember --- war is FANTASTIC for jacking an economy into high gear.
Keep cheering.

You liberals will be the first in line to blame Trump if he didn't do anything and something bad happened.

You liberals make me want to vomit.
