A World on the Brink of a Nuclear War

The world is edging closer and closer to an international conflict, the scale of which has not been seen since the Second World War.

These last two weeks in April 2017 saw a rise of tensions in North Korea as the US sends a carrier group to the area, fallout from the gas attack in Syria followed by the US strike against Syrian bases, a referendum in Turkey giving Erdogan dictatorial powers, and a the call for an election in Britain to help move BREXIT further ahead, ISIS attacks in the Sinai, along thwarted terror bombings in France, all of which are causing consternation worldwide and causing stability to dissipate.

During the past two weeks, the deterioration of the relationship between Russia and America has been exacerbated by events worldwide. This has caused much concern amongst international observers as the world is edging closer and closer to an international conflict, the scale of which has not been seen since the Second World War. Warnings are coming from all quarters of the globe.

US-Russia a hair’s breadth from war

Former Soviet Leader Michael GorbechevFormer Soviet leader, Michael Gorbechev warned that the US and Russia are in a new Cold War with the US-Russia arms race ‘in full swing’. In an interview with Germany’s Bild news paper he stated:

“The language of politicians and the top-level military personnel is becoming increasingly militant. The relationship between the big powers continues to worsen. This creates the impression that the world is preparing for a war. So all the indications of a Cold War are there.”

The Independent commenting on Gorbechev’s statements went on to state:

“Large-scale military exercises have seen Russian and Nato troops, tanks and weapons stationed ever closer in neighbouring countries amid disquiet over the Kremlin’s intervention in the Ukrainian war.”

Russian media anchor Dimitry Kiselyov in his weekly news show Vesti Nedeli made that statement:

“The world is a hair's breadth from nuclear war”

On the other side of the pond, the US sees the same thing in reverse as US Navy Admiral Michelle Howard stated:

"We're seeing activity that we didn't even see when it was the Soviet Union…. They're a global navy, I understand that. But the activity in this has substantially moved up in the last couple of years "

This is in keeping with the words of the prophets:

“Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, Let all the men of war draw near; let them come up: Beat your plowshares into swords, And your pruninghooks into spears: Let the weak say, I am strong.” (Joel 3:9–10)

The bellicose backward and forward tussling between the US and Russia is approaching dangerous levels.

Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov, while criticizing North Korea’s president for its reckless nuclear actions, was more critical of America:

“I really hope that the kind of unilateral action we recently saw in Syria won't happen (in North Korea) and that the USA will follow the line which President Trump repeatedly set out during his pre-election campaign.”

By which he was referring to Trump’s comment that America would not become the world’s policeman.

News syndicates throughout the word carried the headline “Russia declares US relations in ‘worst period’ since the Cold War.” This comes from a statement made by the Kremlin surrounding the trip of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to Moscow. The Russian foreign ministry stated:

“It's clear that Russian-American relations are in their worst period since the end of the Cold War, the previous U.S. administration has done all it could to exacerbate them."

Russia and America are poles apart on how to handle Syria. Tillerson stated:

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson"I think it is clear to all of us that the reign of the Assad family is coming to an end, but the question of how that ends and the transition itself could be very important, in our view, to the durability ... of a unified Syria. I hope that ... the Russian government concludes they have aligned themselves with an unreliable partner in Bashar al-Assad."

Obviously, publicly telling Russia “you’ve betted on the wrong horse” is not going to warm Russian relations with the US. Russia certainly doesn’t see things the same way.

UK-Russian Relations Worse Ever

It is not just America’s relationship with Russia that has degenerated. During the past two weeks Britain’s Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson cancelled a planned visit to Moscow following the chemical attack in Syria. Alexander Yakovenko, Russia’s Ambassador to the UK, gravely warned of Russia-UK relations,

“There is no bilateral relationship of substance e between our two nations, that is beyond mere diplomatic ones.”

Yakovenko accused the UK of “raising tensions” in Europe over its decision to deploy 800 troops to the Estonia, near Russian border:
