- World Marching Toward War, Iran and Israel Close to War, North American Union Real !

War is what I am going to concentrate on in this Weekly News Wrap-Up. There is no doubt a massive financial war is going on right now. If this keeps up, it will only lead to a shooting war and a very big one at that. The EU wants to put another round of sanctions on Russia, and get this, Greece is signaling it will veto that action. So, not only does the recently elected Greece leadership want debt forgiveness, it also looks like it is going to side with Russia over more sanctions. Greece is a NATO country, and it’s making noises that may close NATO military bases and withdraw from the alliance. All this is destabilizing the EU economy and the geopolitical situation there. There is no doubt that part of the world is inching towards more war over Ukraine. The cherry on top of the cake came from rarely heard former leader of Russia, Mikhail Gorbachev, who said, “Have they lost their minds?” Talking about actions taken recently by the U.S., Gorbachev goes on to say, “The ‘cold’ war will “lead to a ‘hot’ war.” I am not advocating war, I am just telling you it looks like one is coming.
Want more war possibilities? Look no further than the Middle East. The hottest of hot spots is looking more and more like Israel. Ever since Israel bombed Hezbollah positions in Syria near the Golan Heights, the shooting has been picking up on both sides. This is all part of the reason why the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, is going to talk to Congress about Iran, its nuclear program and more sanctions. The President is furious over this, and I think it’s because there may be enough votes on both sides of the isle to override a veto. Congress will no doubt pass legislation to strengthen sanctions against Iran if talks fail to curtail Iran’s nuclear program. Meanwhile, Iran has vowed to attack Israel because of the airstrike that killed an Iranian General and a son of a Hezbollah leader in Syria. It is reported Iran has said it will attack Israel from the West Bank. Iran also reportedly told the U.S. State Department it was going to attack Israel. This is a new wrinkle. Iran did not say it was going to have Hezbollah or Hamas attack Israel. It stated Iran was going to attack Israel. This is a whole new level of rhetoric, and it is definitely a dangerous escalation of war talk. If Iran did directly attack Israel, what would a counterattack be for Israel? Can you see how this could spiral out of control? This is “war and rumors of war” talk, and I don’t think anyone is bluffing.
