A few years ago, I spoke to a former database administrator for a defense contractor to the CIA from the 1970s to the late 1990s who had to prepare reports for the Joint Chiefs every morning. He said, over the course of that time, there wasn't a day that went by that we weren't at war with someone, somewhere in the world. And this was before 9/11.
Take the philosophical thought experiment, "If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?" and replace it with, "If one nation makes war upon another, and no one reports on it, did that war really happen?" The modern science of mass manipulation through mainstream mesmerizing media and the distortions, lies and fabrications, incessantly pouring out of this media, has ensured that it hasn't, or if it has, it's not even close to what really occurred.
“WWIII is a loaded term. It assumes that these mass murders that humanity calls war are isolated events with distinct beginnings and ends. This simplification obscures the multi-generational chain reactions that lead up to that moment when swords are drawn or missiles fly.
Of course, there is another reason that the public is rarely conscious of these chain reactions. The ruling class has learned long ago that the best way to take a nation to war is to trick them into it."
Remember, proxy wars are still wars.
The Elite, the ‘Great Game’ and World War III
“The control of the US, and of global politics, by the wealthiest families of the planet is exercised in a powerful, profound and clandestine manner. This control began in Europe and has a continuity that can be traced back to the time when the bankers discovered it was more profitable to give loans to governments than to needy individuals.
These banking families and their subservient beneficiaries have come to own most major businesses over the two centuries during which they have secretly and increasingly organized themselves as controllers of governments worldwide and as arbiters of war and peace.
