A month ago, it felt like World War 3 was just around the corner yet again: but the only people who had suffering and true danger inflicted upon them were the people of Syria.
The stock price for “defense” contractors and creators of weapons of death rose tremendously. In conjunction with this rise you could see it in little symptoms, for example, I saw at an airport a giant advertisement for Raytheon as if they were some innocuous company that strives to make rockets and visit some next frontier of exploration into something.
But the most important details of what transpired during the time when the US, UK, and France boldly struck Syria are missing from even most aware people’s perception of the incident.
First of all, the UK used a horrifying weapon in Syria that is incomprehensibly more painful and horrific than “chemical weapons”: thermobaric weapons.
In a press conference, it looks like a UK official casually and probably accidentally let it slip that the regime used highly cruel and inhumane thermobaric weapons against Syria in the recent strikes.
Thermobaric weapons collapse a person’s lungs, and use a dense amount of pressure to flood a person’s lungs with fuel, some gasoline type stuff, and then it is ignited by the bomb. So the UK basically used a weapon against people in Syria, who knows if they were innocent or not, and it did that.
The UK exploded lungs, filled lungs with fuel and burned them alive, if the bomb in fact struck people in Syria. Guess what?
These bombs are not designed to destroy buildings or structures, so that whole narrative about destroying chemical warfare facilities is bullshit. Thermobaric weapons are for putting a horrifying, painful end to human lives, not very effective at destroying structures.
Now, after Putin gave so many warnings to the US and its coalition, what is he doing? Celebrating his next term as the president of Russia and meeting with Israeli Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He even called Netanyahu his unconditional ally.
I don’t know about you, but to me that sounds like a very different response than he was claiming he would give.
It’s hard for me to understand how such alleged bitter enemies can have cordial meetings, and seemingly forget the events that transpired.
We should all be thankful we don’t have to endure some kind of nuclear holocaust now, but with the way things are going right now, we might just want to include the possibility that Putin is actually working to some extent with the US and its coalition, and perhaps the threat of war benefits all parties.
Perhaps all of this hype really is to a certain extent for the purpose of doing things like spike the price of gold and stocks, to spike the price of defense contractors, and to do things that Putin could actually be complicit with.
People might argue that the diplomatic relationship between Putin and Netanyahu is nothing abnormal, but can we really exclude the possibility that Putin is in on it, hyping up a war to himself benefit as well?
