World War III…
It’s a scenario that has haunted the world’s collective thoughts since the Second World War ended.
World War II came to an end because the US got involved and helped crush the Axis of Evil that was Germany, Japan, and Italy.
We destroyed Germany’s infrastructure and battled them back to Berlin, where Nazi leader Adolf Hitler took his own life rather than face capture by the Allies.
Soon after that, we dropped the sun on Japan not once but TWICE, killing thousands in the first use of nuclear weapons on humans. It was the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki that prompted Albert Einstein to say, “I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.”
So, for the past 75 years, world leaders have been doing everything they can to avoid this inevitable war from happening.
We’ve gotten close on multiple occasions, mostly stemming from issues between the US and Russia during the Cold War, but the 1980s were a different time.
After Mikhail Gorbachev and Ronald Reagan ushered in a new era of peace following the fall of the Soviet Union, the world relaxed for a moment and began to believe that World War III had been averted forever.
And though human nature has often brought us close to that point since then, the nuclear clock has never ticked so close to midnight again.
Even after all of the American endeavors into the Middle East, we’ve somehow avoided triggering another “war to end all wars.”
But that was before China quietly built itself up into an unstoppable world power, using the billions from American business and American government to surpass Russia and become the number-two superpower behind the US.
A New Big Kid On The Block
After spending decades exerting total control over their homeland, China now has designs on everything else they believe belongs to them…and that list of things includes other sovereign nations.
Since becoming the big man on the block in Asia, they’ve crossed lines, both figuratively and literally, in places like Hong Kong and Taiwan, pushing to bring everything under their watchful eye and their less-than-loving embrace.
And it’s China’s latest actions in Taiwan that has people discussing World War III in earnest today. What’s happening in the Pacific right now could mean the start of the worst even in human history…and China is right in the middle of it.
China has sent over 150 Chinese warplanes into Taiwan’s airspace since October 1st (as of this writing on October 6th). Of those warplanes, 56 of them have been fighter jets in what is being described as a “dramatic escalation of Chinese aggression” against the democratic country.
American President Joe Biden said he had spoken to Chinese President Xi Jinping about Taiwan and told the world that Xi has promised to abide by the Taiwan agreement as tensions continue to ramp up between the two countries.
“I’ve spoken with Xi about Taiwan,” Biden told reporters on October 5th. “We agree…we’ll abide by the Taiwan agreement.”
But that call was over a month ago, and China’s actions as of late suggest that they’ve had a change of heart.
To ward off further aggression, a joint military exercise between the UK, Japan, the US, and others is taking place right now in the Pacific…and China isn’t happy about it
The angry communist regime issued a response to the exercise in which they warned that WWIII could be triggered “at any time”—even though it was their OWN actions towards Taiwan that prompted this joint show of force from the US and its allies.
One of China’s state-backed newspapers, The Global Times, published an article that said “collusion” between the US and Taiwan was so “audacious” that the situation “has almost lost any room for maneuver, teetering on the edge of a face-off.”
China Threatens World War III
Even scarier, the article also claimed that the people of China—which we all know is propaganda code for the communist government—are ready to back all-out war with the US and warned both Taiwan and America that they were “playing with fire”.
That, my friends, is a full-on threat, and having the man dubbed “Beijing Biden” at the helm of this ship doesn’t give THIS American the warm and fuzzies.
In fact, knowing that Sleepy Joe is at the wheel is outright terrifying, given his awful track record on foreign policy.
So, right now, we’re in a waiting game, and we can only hope that cooler heads prevail here…
Because if they don’t, the future and safety of the entire world could be at stake.
Keep your eyes open on this one, folks.
This could develop into the worst scenario we’ve seen in over half a century.
Pray for peace…because the alternative will change everything about our existence.
