The fact that Russia is flying military aircraft close to the airspace borders of NATO-member countries does indeed signify a change of policy and
military posturing. Russia is not acting like a bully as some posters would want you to think, but is showing it will not allow itself to be bullied
economically or militarily by the West.
Over the last year Russia has been bullied by the West in order to undermine Russia's continued economic growth, which the West has successfully
stunted and reversed by fomenting social discord and upheaval in the Ukraine, right on Russia's western doorstep. The West did this so as to be able
to implement economic sanctions on Russia.
You will have noticed that in the beginning the sanctions could hardly have been considered as harsh, even the sanctions that followed the annexing of
the Crimea peninsula, and that is because the sanctions were not short-term temporary measures, but to have a diluting and haemorrhaging effect on
Russian wealth over a long period. Russia is now feeling these effects, and is warning the West that if it continues, if Russia is to fall
economically, it will not fall alone, it will respond militarily, and no one could blame Russia if it did.
Russia, China, and Iran are all obstacles to the globalist agenda. The West cannot take them out militarily without suffering equal losses and
destruction, the only solution the West had to these countries as obstacles to the agenda was to include them in the globalist plan, or undermine them
economically. Obviously, Russia did not accept the invitation to join in, so in a sense WW3 has already started through economic stratagems.
The problem for all countries now is if some event should occur during these cat and mouse games, some error, some mistranslation of behaviour out of
suspicion and anger? Right now, Europe is heading ever so quietly toward actual conflict with Russia, unless the economic sanctions against her are
eased or lifted.
Be under no illusion, Russia will go to war to save herself, or to take the world down with her. I have always believed a full scale nuclear war would
occur some day, but I never believed I would live to see it. Now I am not too sure about that?
