The future trends of World is War
Global forecast and future trends in 2013 is going toward War for Peace – the Trends Journal
War or Peace! Your Call
As we go to press, French President Hollande, with support from President Obama, has launched air strikes in Mali and sent French ground troops to attack Al Qaeda-linked Islamists.
Initial reports claim that only a handful of rebels were killed and that the main victims were women, children, and the elderly. “The hospital is overflowing. Both morgues in the city are filled with bodies,” a Malian official in Gao told The New York Times.
Under the auspices of the United Nations, the US, France, UK, and other NATO members are planning broader intervention in Mali that will be reinforced with ground troops from some West African nations.
The Mali civil war, which has already turned 300,000 of its citizens into refugees, is but one of the many conflicts in the region. In response, the rebels
sent a loud message that could to be heard around the world: “Mali Islamists threaten to retaliate ‘at the heart of France,’ … Today, they threatened payback,” read The Christian Science Monitor headline the day after the French incursion. Yes, “payback”! Just as we used to say in the Bronx, “payback’s a bitch.” And as long as nations attack other nations and people kill other people, the “eye-foran-eye” payback cycle will continue.
Back in 2000, I was invited to Virginia Military Institute (VMI) to elaborate upon my forecasts of what new millennium warfare would look like. I told them that while future wars would employ standard armies, navies and airpower, size and firepower would not be sole determining factors. Neo-guerilla warriors using weapons of mass destruction – suitcase-size nukes, bio-chem warfare, dirty bombs deployed by trained operators infiltrating across borders – these would play central roles in determining victory or defeat.
There is an axiom that generals always “fight the last war.” In 2013, given their current misguided actions and strategies, it’s clear that today’s generals
and politicians, looking backwards for the solution to tomorrow’s challenges, are proving that axiom true.
“The First Great War of the 21st Century” has begun, as I had forecast over a decade ago. As Einstein put it: “I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.”
WW III must and can be stopped. In this Trends Journal I provide an original, daring and practical Peace Plan that will not only bring peace but also help put us on the path to prosperity. If you have a better solution, let me know. If you support my Peace Plan, do what you can to make it happen.
Top 10 Trends 2013
In the Spring 2011 Trends Journal, we forecast that “The 1st Great War of the 21st Century” would soon begin. It has begun.
The world is at war. And if the current trend lines continue, a war will soon be coming to a neighborhood near you. Just take a look around the world
and pick a country.
Let’s start with Libya. Perhaps you remember that winter evening when President Obama declared that the United States would join NATO in a
“humanitarian mission ” to depose the “brutal dictator,” Muammar Qaddafi. Surely you haven’t forgotten that this glorious “humanitarian mission” was
not really a war, but rather, in the inimitable, euphemistic terminology of Press Secretary Jay Carney, “a time-limited, scope-limited, kinetic military action.”
Now, a year later, the same Presstitutes that banged the Libyan war drums acknowledge what we predicted in The Trends Journal before that “kinetic military action” even began: that President Obama’s “humanitarian mission” would be a total failure. We said that taking out Qaddafi would leave a vacuum that would be filled with a bloody, protracted civil and tribal war.
In his “Trends in The News” broadcasts and interviews in the media worldwide, Gerald Celente emphatically contradicted Obama’s bold promise to bring “freedom” and “democracy” to the wealthiest nation in North Africa. Surely you’ll remember the tough war talk from all the President’s women – Secretary of State Hillary Clinton; United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice; National Security Council Advisor, Samantha Power
– as they howled for Qaddafi’s head and gloated when it was delivered.
If you don’t remember those war championettes, surely you’ll recall the screeching of those other chicken hawks – UK’s Prime Minister David Cameron, Italy’s PM Silvio Berlusconi, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, and the other national leaders who gave the orders to start the war, launch the missiles and drop the bombs. Those brave stallions who had never fought a day in their lives, leading the charge from the safety of their official palaces. The grand strategies of all those brilliant policy makers brought about the death, lawlessness and destruction that now plagues post-Qaddafi Libya and that has served to further destabilize the region. ….
