Is China Gearing Up To Start World War III?

Back in the day, I sailed on a couple of Pacific cruises with the USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70). A special shout-out to my shipmates on the Chuck Boat.

America’s relationship with China is a fascinating look at dysfunctional geopolitics.

On an economic level, our fortunes are tightly intertwined. As far back as 18 months ago, Ireported about how, while China is America’s largest creditor — and we’re their largest market — China also been developing modified Dong Feng 21 missiles capable of extremely long flight. The potential of threat to Americans and American interests certainly didn’t go unnoticed by our government.

China has also shown itself to be a cybersecurity threat on both the industrial and military fronts. China has conducted numerous penetration tests against U.S. computer systems and networks.

We also know that China has a relatively active, organized cybercriminal community, with large groups of people conducting phishing attacks against Americans. Of course, the People’s Republic of China (mainland China) isn’t the only China phishing on Americans, so is the Republic of China, better known these days as Taiwan.

      Have you not seen any of Benjamin Netanyahu’s latest speeches? I’m pretty sure it’s clear who is trying to start WWIII. In fact it is obvious that it is Israel and it is not China.

      China and Russia are just getting ready for if/when it starts.

      Hats off to a Navy vet from a fellow Navy vet who did seven cruises on the USS FORRESTAL (CVA-59) with Attack Carrier Air Group SEVENTEEN back in the Viet Nam Era.

      But with regard to China and Russia flexing their military might, count on it. It’s all part of a global NWO charade that will cost many people their lives as collateral damage.

      What the world is about to face is a terrifying confrontation between the world’s nuclear superpowers, that will be “miraculously” resolved by a brilliant “peacemaker” from Israel.

      Do I need to mention his name? It begins with an “A.” The Gaia-worshiping UN will adore him.

      Did I also forget to mention that all of the world’s nuclear powers are currently being led by Freemasons working together in secret to establish a pagan paradise dictatorship on Earth?

      Unfortunately for them, God has other plans. The forces of Nature answer to His Holy Will.

      Wait and see if plasma storms trump nukes. I think they will. And so does the Bible.

        Were you on the Forrestal when “Wet” John McCain killed over 167 Navy Saliors by wet starting his jet?

          Was that before or after his Dad started the Vietnam war in the highly unbelievable Gulf of Tonkin story.One thing that everyone can be sure of is that he still has the lowest grade to have ever passed West Point.(Thank’s again Dad).

          You don’t have your facts straight. John McCain did not start the fire that burnt the FORRESTAL while on station in the South China Sea in 1967 during the Viet Nam War.

          The fire was started when a “huffer” (a small tractor-like vehicle that starts jet engines) accidentally ignited a Zuni missile loaded on an A-4 Skyhawk. At that time, the entire flight deck was tightly crammed with aircraft loaded with ordnance awaiting their turn to be catapulted for their sorties.

          The Zuni missile left the Skyhawk and impacted the belly tank of an A-6 Intruder. The resulting explosion initiated a chain-reaction number of blasts that blew holes in the four-inch thick flight deck and killed a lot of sailors sleeping below. Some sailors were also hurled overboard.

          The pilot of the A-4 Skyhawk whose Zuni ignited was Lt. Bangert. I knew him personally. Although being entirely not at fault for the tragic incident, he felt wretched with guilt about it. But the entire crew knew he had done nothing wrong.

          No, I was not on the FORRESTAL during the fire. I went aboard the ship shortly after it was refitted and recommissioned back to duty.
