Quote from source:
The world's top trend forecaster, Gerald Celente, who has been publishing the Trends Journal since 1991, says his Spring 2010 report is one of the most important Trends he's ever published:
"Of all the Trends Journals I have published since 1991, this issue stands apart. Were I to rank it, I would say it is among the most important. The United States is on a path that, if not diverted, will lead the world into the first "Great War" of the 21st century.

This is not fear-mongering, "pessimism porn," or hyperbole. Though the historical and external circumstances are so different that similarities are not easily discerned, the policies currently being pursued by the "great powers" are very much the same as those followed by other doomed Empires past.

Mired in debt and sinking deeper, America's reckless domestic spending and engagement in expensive, drawn-out, unwinnable wars is characteristic of other empires in their waning days. In the past, the last-ditch attempt to preserve power was to wage more war."
Mr. Celente describes the various hot spots and flashpoints around the globe, mostly focused on the middle east, including Pakistan, Afghanistan, Israel, Palestine, Iraq, and of course, Iran.

I had to share this article because it is very good. It shows, as by one of the top trends people, that we are headed for a catastrophe.

The governments will try and divide our attention but we need to give it to the proper things.

We are fighting a losing battle, for nothing.

Any thoughts?

Do you think that this will help the Government Unemployment numbers. I mean, how can you be unemployed if you are killed in combat?

Maybe someone in government does read history. Isn't the 2nd World War what propelled us into prosperity from the Depression?

How many millions of lives were lost so that we could enjoy the lifestyle of today? How many more will die so that a few can enjoy a richer lifestyle?

What would happen if we just continued on the path that we have chosen? How can we force those in power to fight and die for their lifestyles and leave the rest of us out of it?

Just say no to war. At least until it comes to your neighborhood.

Celente is solid and reasonable. His concerns about the future should be taken seriously.

He does this for a living and people pay him for this service.

Looking at history, specifically English history, we seem to be where they were about 1910... the Empire is maxed out and we are struggling to keep it going. When hostilities of break out, it will be over some insignificant event... and then get larger as our obligations are called in.

It will be in that conflict that we will either arise as sole superpower, or go into headlong decline and watch as another country takes our place...

Right on the money! Most people don't even realize it, they know something is wrong but think we will recover soon just like always, when in fact we are teetering on the edge of disaster. And to whoever asked it above; no WWII did not bring us out of the depression. It is all contrived by the international banksters. Think about it we were in a depression and no jobs and then suddenly we have a war and can now afford millions of jobs to supply the war effort.... hmmmm

Read General Smedley Butlers "War is a Racket" Which was quoted in the article and you will see its all been a big lie and still is. Oh when oh when will enough Americans and peoples of the world wake up and put a stop to this evil!

Might be a case of stating the obvious but I think Celente is right on the money anyway.

Anyone that has been watching the situation in North Korea and the Middle East knows a major war is shaping up.

The US and EU economy will soon lay in tatters as the sovereign debt crisis takes hold and the bureaucracy consolidates it's power over the world financial system and passes c02 taxes.

The situation seems so much like the times before the last world wars.

S&F Predator, Celente is the man IMO. As a bonus I now know what my addiction is:

"pessimism porn,"

Now, to find a cure.

Well, I think Celente is a bit behind on this call. It's been pretty obvious that WW3 was pretty much inevitable after the bailouts. Our policy is inline with mass insanity, apathy, and brutality. Sounds a lot like war to me.

To be fair, Celente has more to lose by making premature predictions than the average ats guy.

And he did originally indicate this around a year ago as a likely trend. Only now he's 100% sure.

Agreed. Should have given him more credit. My bad.

How long would you guestimate we have until WW3 or whatever it will be known as? I think the U.S. will collapse before 2016, so think that we will get started well before that. Maybe 2012-2013 range.

No, you were right. Actually you should give him less credit.

But as long as no one pays for this stuff I don't mind. Just don't find yourself giving this "operation" any funding. Anyone can flip a coin.

He sure does. But is his prediction this time premature?

It's not like we haven't had multiple threads calling the start of WW3 in past few months and it certainly seems to have some merit. Things are really heating up and it could be this year they spill over.

The danger IC is that too many countries and too many people..
are reaching a point of having nothing left to lose... while
those who have committed the war crimes
have much to gain from Armageddon

(retail sales are "up" because 20 percent of Americans have stopped paying their mortgages... putting 10 billion a month into the real economy)

as we stand at the event horizon of the apocalypse.

The difference with Gerald Celente over and above the purveyors of doom is that his work has consistently been on the mark, and businesses, governments, and individuals have made use of his analysis to great benefit over quite a few years.

Those who know him personally know that he is a jovial, delightful man. He has said that he doesn't want his work to paralyze anyone in a state of fear but rather to be energized by his analysis to take preemptive corrective action before trouble presents itself as a guest who will not leave.

The fact that Gerlad Celente's analysis charts out the same probabilities seen by George Ure (and Cliff High) and the very different Webbot analysis should give many reason for concern.

There is also the world of prophecy in various religious traditions, and at least one that expects World War III to start on May 6th ... and regardless of whether or not it is a 'genuine' prophecy, it is enough to persuade me that we are in a fight to stop TPTB from starting World War III.

I would like to offer a ritual gesture that is not tied to religions but may be very worthwhile in terms of morphic fields. (1) Stand up from your computer. (2) Breathe deeply several times gathering together all of your passion, sense, gifts, power, and most of all your intention. (3) When you have gathered all of these togethers take one step forward with your intention (Mine is phrased thus: "There will be no more warfare on Earth and we will live and thrive in Peace."). It is a very simple gesture but if it grabs you as worthwhile then please join me in doing this several times a day or at least once, and invite others to join in this gesture of intention for Peace and an end to all warfare.

Stock market is not an accurate indicator about the actual state of a nation's economy. Unemployment statistics, electricity and cement consumption figures et.c. provide a more accurate picture about the actual state of affairs. MSM uses stock market figures to parrot the lines of "green shoots" and recovery.

Greece was hardly present on MSM's radar until the debt crisis spiraled out of control. Goldman Sachs cooked the account books for a very long time until the financial crisis started and now we are seeing almost daily incidents of nationwide strikes in Greece. Other European countries may not be very far behind. One can only imagine as to what these banksters might be plotting on their home turf aka Wall Street. Another crisis, whether it is a war in mid east or Korea, a commercial real estate crash or the derivatives crash would push many nations to the brink. Unless the bankers are stopped very soon, Greece would look like a walk in the park.

I think we are already in a world war, this might be the beginning of it but wait until we find some stupid reason to attack Iran and then it really begins.

We will find any reason and believe me they have been looking for one.

Time is not coming it is already here.

Apologies if this has already been posted, i did a quick scan of the link and posts and couldn't see it.

Below is a radio interview from 20 April 2010 with Gerald Celente by Gary Null.

I have never heard Celente this fired up before.
The interview goes for about 80 min and covers everything from WW3 to the economy to free energy. Honestly, take the time and listen to this interview, Celente has a proven track record and you can tell by his tone, he feels it's meat and potatoes time. Sobering stuff.

Thanks for the video and I will make sure to watch it in the morning.

He is a brilliant man and do not want to miss an opportunity to watch something that he goes on for 80 minutes in.

Thanks for the share.

Personally I think he is spot on, look at the trend following Pax Britannica and the lead up to WW1..

Who where the up coming nations at the time? Germany, the US and Japan.. think about what happened to Germany and Japan, both faced crippling sanctions that opened the door to extremist leaders who turned those nations towards deeper militarisation.

This is path we are on, Pax Americanna is seen to be weak economicallyand as such these other powers are attempting every trick to be the next pre-eminent power.

So the great Game is being played out in the ME to great effect as those nations vie to be the next pre-eminent power,

While I am unsure if the US would lose outright, since it still holds to the "Two Power Rule" which the Royal Navy used.. (i.e the RN was at least the same size as the combined force of the Next 2 most powerful navies)

But how long will that advantage remain, given the shipbuilding programs that are underway in China, India and Brazil.. even Russia is looking at revitalising their fleet! the race is on..

So if anything we are seeing a premature conflict coming to fruition to stunt the growth of some of those upcoming nations (logically China) and in the process see the economies of the West revived via the military industrial complex..

The leaders of the West have not invested in the infrastructure of their nations, while leaving this as "jobless" recovery, Really gives me the impression they are taking the hands off approach as they have other plans/objectives in mind.

As always it will be us, every day people who suffer..

Well according to William Cooper In" Behold a Pale Horse" World War III started the day after WWII ended. It is for your mind! The Final Battlefield. TPTB declared it as soon as WWIII ended. It was on the American Citizen
