WWIII Is in Process; New SARS-CoV-2 Variant
Here’s a start for today.
WWIII Is in Progress
Our normal understanding of war between countries is that of a ‘hot’ or kinetic war with bullets and bombs flying. In fact warfare today is multidimensional. It can have economic, psychological, technological, cyber and clandestine operations aspects. Now we have a new dimension for warfare, that of outer space.
Wars need not become kinetic. The “Cold War” between the West and the USSR never became kinetic but raged on many fronts and was won economically by the bankrupting of the USSR. I will briefly open discussion on some of thse fronts so that they become ongoing topics to add to the Addendum section of these posts.
My contention is that The US and China are at war with initial skirmishes on many fronts. I don’t want to develop a full blown essay at this time but will start the discussion today.
War in Space
Spy satellites have been in use for decades. There subversive surveillance of other countries may be interpreted as a warlike act. However, the dimension of space warfare has exploded and the following article from the Epoch Times outlines China’s advances in this direction: CCP Extending ‘3 Warfares’ Strategy Into Space: Expert. The article presents examples of Chinese probes of American space systems.
It is important to keep in mind that ‘our’ side always announces enemy incursions but never describes any of our own except when they have an overt nature that cannot be hidden such as an economic sanction.
Economic sanctions are widely used by the US and other countries today.. Hopefully someone did their PhD thesis exploring their historical use. In fact they are threatened almost daily. I’ll note special cases as they emerge in the future.
This form of warfare has been going on for years with all parties making claims against others. One of the more famous attacks was the US/Israeli attack on the Iranian uranium centrifuges. In this a case it was pretty obvious. Put a skillful attack can be disguised to appear to have come from anyone. This is an excellent platform for staging a false flag attack against your own people like 9/11.
Any technique designed to influence the thinking of an enemy, particularity through the population, qualifies. Interestingly, this is used on ones own people as propaganda when a particular narrative is to be put forward. This has been widely used in the COVID war in progress.
If we were to define war as an act of aggression by one country against another, I think it might be argued that the first world war continues today with intermittent kinetic phases but continuous use of other forms of warfare. It is an old observation that when countries get into trouble at home with their population, they use an external war to pull the population together. We are on the verge of a major economic reset. War may be the result and the preparation of the population may be underway today. View the news with a critical eye.
New SARS-CoV-2 Variant Found in France
Researchers in France discovered 12 patients with a new variant. Reported in medRXiv, the preprint server, “analysis revealed 46 mutations and 37 deletions resulting in 30 amino acid substitutions and 12 deletions“. At this point, nothing is known about its pathology and indeed it has a lot of competition with Omicron to overcome to become established. As such it may amount to nothing.
It appears to have more mutations than Omicron. When its genome is published we will know which Varant it mutated from. The time frame suggests it is too early to be from Omicron so Delta may be its parent.
Dr. Robert Malone. The video that I posted yesterday of Joe Rogan’s interview with Dr. Robert Malone not only placed Malone’s points in the mainstream mind but, as argued in this next article, helped bury mainstream media: The Mainstream Media Is Losing The Fight Of Its Life…All Thanks To Joe Rogan.
Omicron. Paul Joseph Watson reports for the COVID virus: Experts: We Will “Never” See the End of Coronavirus. With Omicron well established and taking over, we have no health emergency. On that basis, The Federal and Provincial government mandates now have no force in law – IMO. This presents a problem for our authoritarian leaders: return to a constitutional democracy or go the full distance to a totalitarian state. They’re well on the way now so I won’t bet on a positive outcome.
