The US has embarked on a military adventure, “a long war”, which threatens the future of humanity. US-NATO weapons of mass destruction are portrayed as instruments of peace. Mini-nukes are said to be “harmless to the surrounding civilian population”. Pre-emptive nuclear war is portrayed as a “humanitarian undertaking”.
Towards a World War III Scenario: The Dangers of Nuclear War
by Michel Chossudovsky
While one can conceptualize the loss of life and destruction resulting from present-day wars including Iraq and Afghanistan, it is impossible to fully comprehend the devastation which might result from a Third World War, using “new technologies” and advanced weapons, until it occurs and becomes a reality. The international community has endorsed nuclear war in the name of world peace. “Making the world safer” is the justification for launching a military operation which could potentially result in a nuclear holocaust.
Nuclear war has become a multibillion dollar undertaking, which fills the pockets of US defense contractors. What is at stake is the outright “privatization of nuclear war”.
The Pentagon’s global military design is one of world conquest. The military deployment of US-NATO forces is occurring in several regions of the world simultaneously.
Central to an understanding of war, is the media campaign which grants it legitimacy in the eyes of public opinion. A good versus evil dichotomy prevails. The perpetrators of war are presented as the victims. Public opinion is misled.
Breaking the “big lie”, which upholds war as a humanitarian undertaking, means breaking a criminal project of global destruction, in which the quest for profit is the overriding force. This profit-driven military agenda destroys human values and transforms people into unconscious zombies.
The object of this book is to forcefully reverse the tide of war, challenge the war criminals in high office and the powerful corporate lobby groups which support them.
“This book is a ‘must’ resource – a richly documented and systematic diagnosis of the supremely pathological geo-strategic planning of US wars since ‘9-11’ against non-nuclear countries to seize their oil fields and resources under cover of ‘freedom and democracy’.”
-John McMurtry, Professor of Philosophy, Guelph University
“In a world where engineered, pre-emptive, or more fashionably “humanitarian” wars of aggression have become the norm, this challenging book may be our final wake-up call.”
-Denis Halliday, Former Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations
Michel Chossudovsky exposes the insanity of our privatized war machine. Iran is being targeted with nuclear weapons as part of a war agenda built on distortions and lies for the purpose of private profit. The real aims are oil, financial hegemony and global control. The price could be nuclear holocaust. When weapons become the hottest export of the world’s only superpower, and diplomats work as salesmen for the defense industry, the whole world is recklessly endangered. If we must have a military, it belongs entirely in the public sector. No one should profit from mass death and destruction.
-Ellen Brown, author of ‘Web of Debt’ and president of the Public Banking Institute
I'm persuaded that EMP strikes are more likely than nukes. Destroy infrastructure and distribution and you have defeated most Western societies. How long will the veneer of civilisation last when the shops are empty? The Russians should know better than most, after Chernobyl, that nuclear radiation makes the land uninhabitable.
Fact: All sides lie
Fact: throughout history, Russia, China and most other empires not only have killed others they also have killed and oppressed their own people. " if they do that to their own people what will they do to us?"
Fact: US may have a hand in all types of the stuff all over the world, but at least they protect their own people and whatever they do to the others is for the benefit of their people and their economy! Often the largest U.S. transnational companies are the beneficiary of their actions.
+afshin735 Your first fact contradicts your third one. In the 2nd fact, you forgot to include the US civil war. & no, whatever they do isn't to the benefit of their own people, it's to their own benefit & that alone, regardless of how it affects their own people or others. Don't be naive
As prominent critic of neo-liberal economic theory and practice, I am at a loss to understand why Prof. Chossudovsky is still giving a platform to James Corbett, who has proven himself to be nothing but an anarcho-capitalist, the very antithesis of Chossudovsky's world view. Perhaps their shared scepticism regarding the events surrounding 9/11 brought them initially...which is perfectly reasonable, as far as I'm concerned. But the now blatantly obvious moves by Corbett to capitalize this connection with Global Research for personal gain and benefit, should be deeply troubling for somebody of Prof. Chossudovsky's stature and intellect.
Using Nuclear weapons gives vitality, peace and understanding to those who you use them on. Now we know, they have lots of nukes in place and are planning to use them. We are so fortunate that we have such loving and caring leaders. Lets all be sure to support them in the next election by casting your vote for Republican or Democrat.
well, i think the USA is willing to try this event with Europe as a first location at the cost of millions of lives and total destruction of civilization.
Why...madness, overselfesteem, "never learned something", the idea that destruction and violence will give bith to world power..
But it will soon be clear that this all - this paradox-will end into suicide and miserbale death in safe deep bunkers..

Privatisierung von Atomwaffen und Einsatz von taktischen Atomwaffen auch gegen Nicht-Atommächte von den USA beschlossen. Gott steh uns bei! Und wir sollten den Kriegstreibern das Geld aus der Hand nehmen (wo ist Dein Konto? Was "macht" Dein Geld?) und die Politmarionetten vom Thron stoßen!
@3:00~~if anyone is reading to comment: is
not every citizen of the uSA guilty of being complicit to the creation of Nuckler warheads if they use atomic power plants for electricity?
are we all duped knuckleheads? or knocked up dope heads...
It's not so much the USD, as it is the points system, the metrics by which some use to measure and value their lives and what they stand for. There are too many personal egos on the line here, in addition to some in power who are bored who need to prove themselves still worthy of a job. Then there are those who need the money system to continue unabated because if it were to go under, they would be exposed, and they would run out of room to run from the consequences of over-stretching, of stealing from the future, of over-leveraging.
Community pharmacists are the health professionals most accessible to the public. They supply medicines in accordance with a prescription or, when legally permitted, sell them without a prescription. In addition to ensuring an accurate supply of appropriate products, their professional activities also cover counselling of patients at the time of dispensing of prescription and non-prescription drugs, drug information to health professionals, patients and the general public, and participation in health-promotion programmes. They maintain links with other health professionals in primary health care.
