“The survivors (of a nuclear war) would envy the dead.”
~ Nikita Khrushchev
There is no certainty of a global nuclear war, but given the players involved, there is the possibility. Nuclear war has been constantly threatened by insane rulers, mostly in the U.S., for many decades, but other than the abhorrent and murderous slaughter of innocents in Japan at the hands of the U.S. war machine, no nuclear attacks have been forthcoming since. There is good reason for this, but I fear few take into consideration the complete lunacy and deranged minds of totalitarian-minded rulers. They thrive on propaganda, sabre rattling, and threats, as if this is a harmless political game, but it would take only one idiot to start an all-out nuclear exchange. That would be devastating to all on earth, so why is there so much antagonistic threatening of nuclear war among the empirical nation states?
The absolute insanity of such irresponsible behavior belies all logic, but since when has logic or reason held a place among nation states and the ruling class? In my opinion, no one could want or purposely pursue nuclear war; not because of the risk to normal people of course, but because it would know few if any bounds, and put at risk the very murderers who would perpetrate such a sadistic and evil plot in the first place. The ruling class are unmistakable cowards who obviously want to rule over others, but not at the expense of their own lives. This may be the only saving grace for the common man, at least concerning nuclear war, as those who seek war do so with the knowledge that others and the children of others will die in their place, and with nuclear war, there is no guarantee of that outcome.
Most of these lowlifes, at least the highest ranking of them in the ruling class and politics, have built special bunkers for themselves in the event of all out war, but what would be left to rule after total annihilation? What pleasure would they gain if all was destroyed and poisoned, and all economic systems and infrastructure were left in shambles, and humanity itself obliterated? This is why all out nuclear war is not likely, or at least not desired, by the scum who hold major positions of power. Killing off much of mankind is craved by technocrats, political scum, eugenic monsters, and genocidal psychopaths, but not at the expense or possibility of harm to themselves, as these skulking parasites cannot rule a society that has lost all, is desperate, and has nothing else to lose. The powerful want compliant and obedient subjects who worship the state, and look to it for safety and sustenance. Nuclear war would probably change that slave-like relationship between the powerful and the masses, and cause large-scale dissent instead of a pathetic submissive citizenry.
But other types of war can be used to not only kill off the ‘undesirable,’ the dissenters, and the non-conforming freedom seekers, but do so in a manner that can be used to propagandize the masses even further, thereby keeping them acquiescent to their masters. By blaming death and destruction on fake ‘viruses,’ on food and energy shortages, and on so-called rogue states and dictators, the people will most assuredly go along with the tyranny just as they always have. This would allow democide and genocide to continue due to purposely planned agendas, including selling the idea that bioweapon injections are necessary, ‘safe, and effective,’ causing death to millions or even billions over time. The state would lay false blame of course, but continue to manufacture fabricated threats claimed to be natural or caused by some feigned foreign enemy state.
There are continuous ‘news’ stories coming from the mainstream and alternative sites claiming that cyber war is constantly active or being pursued by some of the countries not in favor with the West, but in most all these circumstances, this is just a set-up for the gullible masses, so that when their host country actually commits cyber warfare against its own population, all responsibility will be shifted to others, and the people will likely accept this lie without question. For Americans, cyber war will probably become reality, but it is doubtful that it will be an attack by a foreign state like Russia, China, or Iran, but will be an inside job at the hands of U.S. ‘intelligence’ and enforcement services, and high government officials, blamed on a claimed enemy state. I do not believe this to be only a possibility, but more a certainty. Many nefarious agendas can be achieved in any operation of this type, because it can allow for energy services to be shut down, food supply and distribution to be dramatically altered or worse, communication system disruption, financial system breakdowns; all meant to allow total control over people. In addition, this could be targeted to any specific area, or could be broad-based, depending on the particular agendas sought.
The same of course could happen in any biological war scenario, where the host state could affect more harm and death by intentionally releasing poisonous agents, new and even more dangerous bioweapon injections and boosters, spraying additional heavy metals, toxic chemicals, and deadly biologic agents in targeted areas; all blamed on alleged enemies of the state. These kinds of events stoke extreme nationalism, whereby the general populace will back any number of aggressive responses by the state and its murderous enforcement arms made up of police and military order takers….
