Last year I wrote of how World War III was approaching. I said that if we invade or bomb Iran that it would trigger a World War III scenario. Well the same can be said of Syria.
Without digging too deep into the oddities of the Syrian civil war which appear to have many factions. Lets look at who our genius senators are meeting with and arming; Al Qaeda. Yes folks the same group we’ve been fighting for the last decade. That sounds like a great idea doesn’t it? Arm the same people we’ve sacrificed thousands in battle against since the begging of the war on terror.
OK so why would you be a dumb ass to invade Damascus? Well, aside from the fact that it seems completely illogical for Assad to randomly gas a bunch of civilians, lets just say he did. Has every one forgotten the fact that Syria and Iran have a mutual defense pact and that Russia and China have vested interests in these countries?
Do we really want to spark a wider war with Russia and China? Not to mention completely setting the middle east ablaze. Assad is right about this, a direct conflict with Syria will engulf the middle east.
So lets put all of the if’s but’s and maybe’s aside and just look at the numbers. Lets say the US and UK are stupid enough to attack yet another middle eastern country, and trigger a wider war with Russia and China.
These are the numbers for the US & Britain vs Russia & China, all of which can be found at www.globalfirepower.com

So you see, without a shot fired China and Russia already have more in the way of oil resources and monetary funds. We could sling as many rockets at each other as we want but at the end of the day they will recover much faster. Of course, if we decide to go nuclear; well, I guess we can say bye bye planet earth. Perhaps Al Gore’s global warming fantasy will become a reality.

Good information. Well done.
Thanks. I spent a couple of hours calculating the figures.
Our president and his associates are setting up the Middle East for WWIII. Pretty evident that we have been arming the rebels for some time. We have been invading sovereign nations without any provocation at all. The hatred from these countries will come home to roost. Add to the destruction of several entire civilizations – our president and his Communist associates has been importing hundreds of thousands of Palestinians, Africans and other other terrorist nationals into this country. They are being housed and cared for in every section of the country. I believe that the word will be sent out and even the inner city blacks (that have been indoctrinated into hating whitey for no reason at all) will be part of the new anti-American death squads. I am beginning to wonder if some of the forest fires are being set. With the stats you have posted it makes it even scarier. Remember these elitists at the top use war to decrease the birth rate and the world population. I have heard many of them state that there are too many people living on this planet. Another point is that many Mexicans believe they have the right to declare some of our states as part of Mexico. They have rights, but do not owe any sort of allegiance to the United States of America.
Interesting. I’ve heard rumors of population control also. To the ‘elites’ we’re all nothing more than pieces on a chessboard. I think the only thing that can hold evil at bay is the truth. The more truth that is exposed, the less publicity stunts like Miley Cyrus will be paid attention to and the more people will take into account what’s really going on in the world.
