I have asked the question has WWIII Begun a few times now https://shaunynews.com/2015/01/29/wwiii-is-on-the-horizon-more-counties-at-war-today-than-in-wwii/ It is very hard to argue against the World being at war when you read that article and the quote below from the article. This is very bad news with the USA being on the border with Russia, all it will take is one soldier with an itchy finger on his gun, then it goes downhill badly. If you have a God, pray, now. This is only going to get worse people…

WWII 61 Countries were involved. We look today and 151 countries out of 162 Countries are either in/at or in Civil War, I think it is fair to say “World War 3” has begun. 11 countries have peace as I write this. Only Switzerland, Japan, Qatar, Mauritius, Uruguay, Chile, Botswana, Costa Rica, Vietnam, Panama and Brazil, 11 Countries are not at war in any form

The United States has sent a number of combat vehicles to an Estonian city near the Russian border for military maneuvers in a move to show muscles to Moscow. Amid the escalating tensions between the two powers, the armored personnel carriers and other US Army vehicles rolled through the streets of Narva on Tuesday, the Washington Post reported. A group of American soldiers participated in the parade with 1,300 Estonian soldiers to mark the country’s Independence Day. The border city of Narva that is separated by a river from Russia has a majority of ethnic Russian residents.

8fa21cf8-40f7-49f8-bd96-4c66de2f7860The relations between Washington and Moscow have been strained over the ongoing crisis in Ukraine. Ukraine’s mainly Russian-speaking regions of Donetsk and Lugansk in the east have witnessed deadly clashes between pro-Russian forces and the Ukrainian army since Kiev launched military operations to silence pro-Moscow protests in mid-April 2014. The United States accuses Russia of sending troops into eastern Ukraine in support of the pro-Russian forces. Moscow, however, denies any involvement.

In November, US tanks paraded through the streets of Riga for Latvia’s Independence Day. The US military has sent hundreds of troops to countries in the Baltics since the conflict began in Ukraine. In an article over the weekend, former US congressman Ron Paul said last year’s incidents that overthrew the legally-elected government of Ukraine’s former president Viktor Yanukovych “was not only supported by US and EU governments — much of it was actually planned by them.”

Pentagon chief warns President Putin

Pentagon chief warns President Putin

US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter has accused Russia of violating the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, threatening Russian President Vladimir Putin with responses.

During his confirmation hearing, Carter told senators that the Pentagon has many options against Russia, including active defenses to counter intermediate-range ground-launched cruise missiles; counter-force capabilities to prevent intermediate-range ground-launched cruise missile attacks; and countervailing strike capabilities to enhance US or allied forces. “US responses must make clear to Russia that if it does not return to compliance, our responses will make them less secure than they are today,” he said.

Washington says Moscow violated the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty and the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe. However, Russia denied the allegation and said the testing of a ground-launched cruise missile in July 2014 was in compliance with the INF treaty. Russia says the US missile plans across the globe are a real threat not only to Russia but also to the whole world, adding the missile systems harm the strategic balance of forces across the globe.
