  1. Definitely. One gets the feeling that one day the dominoes will start falling…

      Einstien once said “I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.” I guess the answer as to what weapons are answered. The dominoes have already fallen, this is where every conspiracy comes together, this is where it all ends. Mankind will continue to live on after the battle, evolved, stronger, and a little wiser, but where warfare can now be fought through technology, weather, and chemical alongside soldiers everything will soon be rendered useless. Since we have become so dependant of technology we will not be sent back to the times of Western movies, we will be reset to the beginning of the technological timeline.

    Hi,
    Thank you for the daily informative emails you send, I think the service you provide is remarkable and I whole heartedly support your underlying mission.

    I know this is not relevant to the above post but a couple of questions occur to me regarding the New Madrid event.
    If it occurs, how would you see it happening geologically? A compression, split or slip along the length. If a slip then which part would move up and which down? Finally how would that generate a tsunami and why would that just affect Europe and not America.

    Kindest regards,
    Nigel.

    • New Madrid is in the middle of the continental U.S…are you referring to New Madird when you mentioned tsunami risks?

      Yes, I am under the impression that the New Madrid event will immediately precede the tsunami which affects Europe. I assumed that the two were interconnected, please correct me if I’m wrong.
      Further to the tsunami, what event will trigger it, and if initiated in the Atlantic my point about why it will not affect America remains pertinent.

      • Nigel, the two events are not connected. Tsunami dangers for Erurope in the Atlantic could arise from the Canary Islands or the Azores.

        There is a mountainside in the Canary islands that is being monitored, as it is cracking off from the rest of the island. IF it slides off into the Atlantic, the coastal cities of the Atlantic on ALL sides will see a sunami hundreds of feet tall sweep over them.

        There is speculation that New Madrid will trigger a rift along the St. Lawrence River and Seaway which will in turn trigger a tsunami that will hit Europe. I’m not well versed in the mechanics of tsunamis, but living between the New Madrid and Wabash fault zones keeps me on the lookout for earthquake news. The Global Incident earthquake map is a good place to watch for eq’s, and there might be some merit that a rift could happen in the St. Lawrence area. Tremors continually happen along that stretch.

    The worst thing about the ‘start’ of WWIII, is that it could start, without people realizing what it is, when it occurs.

    Take, for example, the recent tension between Israel and Iran.

    A ‘local’ conflict between these two countries would become regional within hours or days, and then, drag the US and England (and possibly other European nations) into the conflict.
    Depending upon how the conflict plays out, and the effects upon oil prices and the global economy, Russia, and then China, could get involved, in an attempt to assert control in a out-of control situation.
    China may not have alliances with any of the middle-eastern countries, but the effect such a conflict, upon oil prices, could pressure them into taking action – since they are heavily dependent upon purcha$ing and importing oil supplies.

      This dependency is based on finite resources. I hope we don’t go down that path again.

    India has always followed peaceful principles till date. Cos there is no history of India invading any other country ever in the history.meanwhile its been invaded by rulers of other countries. Even in recent past,three wars with Pakistan and war with China,India did not start the war. It just took defensive stance against the countries. Even till recent Kargil war,India just secured its land back from the occupants. It didn’t step into the enemy’s land at all,for which it won appreciation.Looking at these facts,its clear that India is just flexing its arms only to retaliate on any attempts of war against th country.needless to say,only India has signed no first use policy for nuclear arsenal not Pakistan.

    History repeat itself. From the ancient texts of Mahabharata and Ramayana, we see a description of a nuclear warfare in the distant past. Now we have come a full circle as India once again have the technology to destroy each other. Mankind never learns…today we have became just like the people before the Flood, perhaps worse, and we are being threatened with near extinction just like then.

    Iran’s military has shot down an unmanned US aircraft over the east of the country, state TV has reported.
    “Iran’s military has downed an intruding RQ-170 American drone in eastern Iran,” Iran’s Arabic-language Al Alam state television network quoted an unnamed military source as saying.

    A report on English-language Press TV said the drone was “downed with minimum damage” and seized by Iranian officials close to the border with Afghanistan and Pakistan.

    The RQ-170 Sentinel is an unmanned stealth aircraft used for reconnaissance. It is not designed to carry weapons.

    The semi-official Fars news agency, which is believed to be close to the Revolutionary Guard military force, said Iran would respond to the violation of its airspace with actions beyond its own borders.

    There was no immediate comment on the claims from the US military, which rarely officially confirms operations carried out using such aircraft.

    In July, US officials dismissed a report that a US drone had been downed over the city of Qom, home of supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, close to the Fordu nuclear facility.

    The reports came amid worsening relations between the West and Iran over its nuclear programme after the UN’s International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) issued a report it said showed Iran had worked on designing an atomic bomb.

    Iran has insisted its nuclear ambitions are entirely peaceful, but prompted the US and European Union to agree tighter sanctions on Iranian companies and individuals.

    Earlier on Sunday, Iran’s foreign ministry warned that any move to extend those sanctions to block oil exports would double the price of crude.

    “As soon as such an issue is raised seriously the oil price would soar to above $250 a barrel,” foreign ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast was quoted as saying.

    Britain has also downgraded its relations with Iran following the storming of the UK embassy in Tehran by students protesting over the sanctions on Iran’s central bank.
