Putin is pissed off because NATO keeps mounting troops on the Russian border. Why are we in a rush to war? Gerald Celente reveals what you won’t hear on the corporate media with Gary Franchi on the Next News Network.
The extraordinary US-NATO build-up of military forces — on land, sea, and air — on and very near Russia’s borders, or the opening of “NATO’s Eastern Front”, as Professor of Russian studies at Princeton University and New York University Stephen F. Cohen refers to it, had no precedent during the preceding 40-years of Cold War.
“This military buildup on Russia’s Western frontiers is absolutely unprecedented.
There has never been such an amassing of hostile military force on Russia’s Western frontiers since June 1941 when Hitler invaded the Soviet Union and that’s the way the Russians see it,” Stephen F. Cohen said in his recent interview with John Batchelor on The John Batchelor Show radio news magazine.
“We need to understand that tens of thousands of western troops will be parked now permanently, they may say that they are rotating, but they are there permanently on Russia’s borders.
Along with nuclear-ready missiles, along with a lot of tanks and, above all, in Russia’s eyes, the missile defense installation,” he added.
US Builds Up Forces All Around Russia, Blames Moscow for Holding on to Nukes This is so serious, so fraught with the possibility of war, he said, adding that this NATO buildup has gone beyond the Cold War, and that Russia is only reacting in response.
This, the professor explained, is already beyond the Cold War, where nobody dies, this is already a “pre-war” stage, and what we are witnessing is a mobilization to war.
Mr Putin is preparing to send 150,000 ground troops to Syria to destroy ISIS.
The Russian supremo is mounting an enormous military mission to take control of ISIS stronghold Raqqa.
The city is the self-declared ISIS capital in Syria and is patrolled by as many as 5,000 jihadis.
But Mr Putin’s relentless bombing campaign has fired up grave concerns in the West that Russia is using its campaign against terrorists as a pretext to strike at moderate rebel groups opposed to Assad in a bid to bolster its ally.
Mr Fallon, today, announced that Britain would be sending around 150 UK soldiers deploy troops to Eastern Europe to deter Russian “provocation and aggression”.
And the US has also spoken of its concern, with President Barack Obama describing Russia’s military campaign as a “recipe for disaster”.
Trends researcher Gerald Celente predicts war in the Middle East. He says, “It is out of control. What are people waiting for–an Archduke Ferdinand moment?” Celente thinks Israel bombing Syria means World War 3 is on its way.
The cycle leading to war started with the crash of 2008. Celente says, “Crash, depression, currency wars . . . trade wars and then real wars.
That’s what we’re seeing again.” Celente charges, “This is a proxy war against Iran because when Syria is choked off, then Iran is left alone surrounded by enemies. So, that’s what we’re really looking at. The end game is Iran.” What would happen if Iran and Israel went to war?
Would the Strait of Hormuz close, gasoline explode to $10 a gallon, markets implode? Celente says, “All of the above.” Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with Gerald Celente, Publisher of the Trends Journal.
