If the media ever talks about North Korea, find out what they aren't telling you. North Korea hype is a distraction.
Also, Wikileaks docs:
Pretty much we have a candidate that committed treason.
And when it comes to WW3, tensions and actions are not based on morality. The US could care less about eradicating ISIS, we literally could give two shits. There are no good guys in geopolitics and I have an IQ of 30 and understand this.
War comes down to geopolitical agendas with a mingling of religious ideologies, proxy armies and corporate exploitation. In the most general sentience, Assad and Syria proposed the 2011 Iran-Iraq-Syria pipeline which would allow Iran to supply gas to Europe. Qatar and the US did not like this. Qatar proposed an alternative, the Qatar-Turkey pipeline, which would run straight through Aleppo, eventually making its way into Europe. Assad opposed this proposition and Russia dissuaded Qatar from making a deal. Syria is also Russia's strategic ally, hence losing this landmass would be detrimental. Prolonging secular Assad is necessary to perpetuate Russia's natural gas dominance in Europe as well as keep hold of a strategic geographical hot spot and defense point.
The US supports the alternative Qatar-Turkey pipeline that Assad and Russia oppose. This is why the US is so keen on overthrowing the legitimate government in Syria. Regional destabilization in and around government strongholds is necessary for ousting leaders. So I wouldn't doubt that US allies are covertly funding ISIS and proxy armies and/or covertly assassinating Russians, Iranians and Syrians close to Assad. Likewise, Turkey and Saudi Arabia have been caught in the past trafficking weapons into Syria. Turkey also believes that this pipeline would diversify its own gas supplies away from Russian energy.
Then you have Saudi Arabia funding radical Sunni groups in Syria. Again, I wouldn't doubt that the bulk or rather inception of these rebellions dubbed "the Arab Spring" power grab were largely geopolitically instigated. Though, I don't deny the dissatisfaction of rule of governments and the pressure caused by the Recession. Still, NATO countries supported the uprising, which can be tracked back to funding by NED (National Endowment for Democracy). And just after the Arab Spring the Saudi's increased oil production and aggressively offered low oil prices to grab market share.
This is just a quote;
"Qatar's involvement in the Syrian civil war was based in part on its desire to build a pipeline to Turkey through Syria: The discovery in 2009 of a new gas field near Israel, Lebanon, Cyprus, and Syria opened new possibilities to bypass the Saudi Barrier and to secure a new source of income. Pipelines are in place already in Turkey to receive the gas. Only Al-Assad stands in the way."
"Syria's rationale for rejecting the Qatar proposal was said to be "to protect the interests of [its] Russian ally, wSo the alternative to the Qatar-Turkey pipeline which had been proposed by Qatar to run from Qatar to Europe is the
And everyone already knows about the clash between the Sunni's, Shiites and ISIS wanting to engender a Salafist state.
Picking a side in a geopolitical war is the wrong way to go. Look at things objectively and understand that superpowers use fear and suffering to maintain their agenda. Doesn't matter if it's Russia or Syria bombing rebel neighborhoods, the US bombing hospitals or Saudi's bombing funerals, they will continue to fight, kill and blame their opponent. It's basically a circle jerk of lies, deceit, suffering and propaganda. The point is that we are told what they want us to think and feel. Media saturation campaigns rely on emotional drivel and sensationalized images to force us into a biased, egocentric way of thinking. That, so they can continue exploiting without any blow back. Remember, the eyes do not see what the mind does not know.
