The launching of an outright war using nuclear warheads against Iran has been on the
active drawing board of the Pentagon since 2005.
If such a war were to be launched, the entire Middle East Central Asia region
would flare up. Humanity would be precipitated into a World War III Scenario.
World War III is not front-page news. The mainstream media has excluded in-depth
analysis and debate on the implications of these war plans.
The onslaught of World War III, were it to be carried out, would be casually described
as a “no-fly zone”, an operation under NATO’s “Responsibility to Protect” (R2P)
with minimal “collateral damage” or a “limited” punitive bombing against specific
military targets, all of which purport to support “Global Security” as well as “democracy”
and human rights in the targeted country.
Public opinion is largely unaware of the grave implications of these war plans, which
contemplate the use of nuclear weapons, ironically in retaliation to Iran’s nonexistent
nuclear weapons program.
Moreover, 21st Century military technology is at an advanced stage of development
combining an array of sophisticated weapons systems.
We are at the crossroads of the most serious crisis in World history.
The future of humanity is at stake.
The present situation is one of advanced war planning by a formidable military force
using nuclear warheads.
