Economic Warfare: Is the World Marching Blindly into WWIII?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Trade sanctions may one day be seen as the opening shots of WWIII. Economic sanctions have become the first attack of choice in bending or weakening non-compliant adversaries to the modern western globalist view.  The US encouraged the Ukrainian maiden revolution after their President turned towards Russia over the EU. The US and its western allies started imposing financial and trade sanctions on Russia. These sanctions were advantageous to the US who had little trade with Russia while financially hurting many countries within the EU. They continued ratcheting up the sanctions against Russia who in turn created counter sanctions and refused to yield to the pressure from the west. Now the US has put China in its sights and has started sanctioning their companies using North Korea and Iran as the excuse. The US in trying to maintain its global hegemony is going after countries that currently or will in the future challenge its ability to project power globally.

China is rapidly growing its military and will have the ability soon to impose financial sanctions and penalties against its adversaries a feat that has been limited to the US and its allies. China realizes as the west does that if they can gain the ability to control trade through its surrounding seas it can unseat the United States political and economic power.  The US and Europe like Japan was at the beginning of WW2, is very dependent on imports and fear having its trade controlled by adversaries. When these hegemonic views are challenged the US has two options economic warfare and/or military war.

Almost all modern wars involving the US since WW1 have evolved from economic actions. The US was drawn into WW2 after Japan attacked Pearl Harbor. This was precipitated from the US starting trade sanctions against Japan in July 1940 on oil and steel. Then in July 1941 the US started a full oil and economic embargo on Japan who at the time was at war with China and dependent on 80% of its imports from the west.

President Donald Trump on the 31st of March 2017 signed two  Presidential Executive Orders, “Establishing Enhanced Collection and Enforcement of Antidumping and Countervailing Duties and Violations of Trade and Customs Laws” and “Regarding the Omnibus Report on Significant Trade Deficits.”Trade and economic warfare almost always preceded actual war.  President Trump will host President Xi of China at Mar-a-Lago on April 6th and 7th where he is to address trade and North Korea.

China realizes the power that it could soon yield against other nations. The west’s ability to prevent this power exchange is closing. The military might of China in four years will be sufficient to control their surrounding seas almost unchallenged. Any nation that would challenge this control would have to be willing to sacrifice significant military losses while China embargoed trade through the surrounding seas causing massive economic chaos to their country. China is starting to project its growing military and economic power by setting up bases in other countries like their new naval base in Djibouti Africa. China’s Chairman of the National People’s Congress Standing Committee Zhang Dejiang stated this past week, “China is ready to work with Cuba to advance military ties so as to further enrich bilateral relations.” According to Reuters, Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman Wu Qian, told a monthly news briefing on March 30th in reference to the US supplying new weapons that “Separatist Taiwan independence forces and their activities are the greatest threat to peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait…It is futile to use weapons to refuse unification and is doomed to have no way out.”

      -And I Heard In My Hearing, “finish all schools, kill all parents by, yours is a nuclear Fate, fifty millions will die, 2002-
      2017, Apb, See

      America, Have You fallen before? The Slow Motion Exodus, The Woman Bearing Black Bowls, 99 Bowls Of Molten Lava

      -America, The West is like portrayed the Movie, The Road with Viggo Mortensen (see here, a nuclear to a Yellowstone, even a Meteor strike of a master disaster. It is one of the first things I glanced into doing an open vision while at work the mid eighties, it blew my mind away, from there all I could mentally detect was the lamentations of Jeremiah. Definitely, right into the Apostle John’s testament behind Revelation 18 especially with it’s suddenness, that in just half an hour. Come to to think of it, that is the same measure of the silence in heaven John as well detected, as so did Apostle, doing my closet prayer, 1992.
      -Surely the swiftness as portrayed by the Intrepid Dream Time table, the speed in which apocalypse happen is heart numbing and nearly two hundred years of growth is just in a flash gone, as so people, men, women and children as in the tens of millions. Of course, like the prophets of old, this is what I been attempting to forewarn these thirty-one years this spring, with Holy Spirits portraying this out break with disasters lately as the entire country of hundreds of millions.
      -Whereas they’re all captured in the American Dream of a slow motion exodus. Cleverly it wasn’t that they didn’t know, as Jesus said light, revelation as God is Righteous judge had come. again always. The mockery Holy Spirits were to project is how all these people were all cursed along a procrastinating attitude. The truth is either one of these three events would perform themselves as the extinction level event I’ve witness happen these many years, as soon as October 2017. This catastrophe on the earth first having it’s beginning, come this world’s religious sanctuary Us to Western soil. Beware as always, Apb, see more here,
