Both countries want peace, not war. America threatens them. Defensive readiness is prioritized. Forewarned is forearmed.
NATO's a global alliance. Washington heads it. It's a geopolitical threat. It menaces humanity. It's expanding worldwide. It's allied for offense, not defense. It plans war, not peace.
It's comprised of 28 member states, 22 partner ones, seven Mediterranean Dialogue allies, four Istanbul (Gulf) Cooperation Council Initiative states, and eight other global Partners.
It works cooperatively with the UN, EU, and Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. South American and African expansion is planned.
Stop Nato's Rick Rozoff told Progressive Radio News Hour listeners it's a "global missile." It's aimed at humanity's heart. It threatens potential armageddon. Stopping its rogue agenda matters most.
It threatens world peace. It's expanding to Russian and Chinese borders. Encroaching US bases surround them. Moscow and Beijing are mindful. They're allied defensively. They're preparing for scenarios they hope to avoid. They're readying for possible global war.
On December 7, 2011, the EU Times headlined "China Joins Russia, Orders Military to Prepare for World War III."
A Beijing Ministry of Defense bulletin said then President Hu "agreed in principle" that deterring US-led Western aggression's only possible by "direct and immediate military action" or threat thereof.
He ordered his naval forces to "prepare for war." BBC reported the same story. He wants stepped up preparation and readiness.
He told military officials that China's navy should "accelerate its transformation and modernisation in a sturdy way, and make extended preparations for warfare in order to make greater contributions to safeguard national security."
Chinese Rear Admiral Zhang Zhaozhong warned unequivocally. "China will not hesitate to protect Iran even with a Third World War," he said.
Hopefully he means it. Hopefully Washington and Israel take heed. Hopefully it deters their planned aggression. Hopefully a nightmarish scenario's avoided.
Russian General Nikolai Makarov said:
"I do not rule out local and regional armed conflicts developing into a large-scale war, including using nuclear weapons."
Beijing's bulletin discussed a US-planned "ultimate (Middle East) solution." It's readied in case of regional nuclear war. It said Washington will attack Syria and Iran with lethal biological weapons. They're "intended to kill tens of millions of innocent civilians."
Dutch virologist Ron Fouchier revealed it. He discovered that five avian flu virus mutations spread far more easily. Doing so makes them the "most lethal killer(s) of mankind ever invented."
US capabilities were based on Russian intelligence examination of Lockheed Martin's RQ-170 Sentinel Drone. It was downed over Iranian territory.
"Russian made Avtobaza ground-based electronic intelligence and jamming system was used. Evidence showed it was equipped with a sophisticated aerosol delivery system."
America's nuclear, chemical, and biowarfare agenda is longstanding. Post-9/11, stepped up development was prioritized. Nuclear disarmament was spurned. So were Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) provisions.
The 1972 Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty (ABM) was abandoned. It expressly forbids development, testing and deployment of missile defenses. Doing so interferes with Washington's offensive plans.
It refuses to adopt a proposed Fissile Material Cutoff Treaty (FMCT). It prohibits further weapons-grade uranium and plutonium production. It forbids adding new nuclear weapons to present stockpiles.
America spends more on military readiness than all other countries combined. Funding includes enormous congressional appropriations, outsized black budgets, others off the books, secret programs, huge amounts for intelligence, and other unknown initiatives.
Longstanding US policy calls for preventive, preemptive, and/or proactive wars. Global targets are involved. First-strike chemical, biological and nuclear weapons are planned. Anticipatory self-defense justifies doing so.
Washington rescinded the 1972 Biological Weapons Convention. Subverting its provisions preceded doing it.
Enhanding America's offensive capability matters most. Doing so prepares for global war. At issue is unchallenged dominance. Anything goes is policy. Achieving it's prioritized.
Potentially destroying life on earth is risked. Advancing Washington's imperium matters more. America has hugely destructive chemical, biological, nuclear and other arsenals.
Secret research and development programs upgrade them. Enormous amounts are spent doing so. Classified budgets conceal how much.
Hundreds of private biolabs operate nationwide. Fort Detrick, Lawrence Livermore, and other government facilities operate secretly. Research prioritizes offense, not defense.
Germ warfare once was science fiction fantasy. Today it's a grim reality. So is chemical and/or mushroom shaped cloud annihilation.
America plays hardball. It does so for keeps. Nuclear/chemical/biological trigger readiness is prioritized. Francis Boyle calls catastrophic biowarfare/bioterrorist incidents or accidents a "statistical certainty."
It's just a matter of time. Permanent war is official US policy. Total war risks annihilation. All weapons in America's arsenal will be used. They're planned to be as needed. Humanity's more than ever threatened.
Russia and China represent our last line of defense. Hopefully they're up to the challenge.
