Turkey and Saudi Arabia are on the verge of igniting the fuse that will end with the beginning of the next world war.
How will the United States perform in a war against Russia? What will the first few days of this “last war to end all wars”, look like?
How it Begins
For three years, I have been asserting that World War III would begin in Syria. With Turkey and Saudi Arabia poking a stick in the eye of Russia, this possibility grows more likely by the moment.
Turkey, as a full-fledged member of NATO, is committed to a path which will culminate in war. Saudi Arabia has allowed themselves to be positioned where they, too, have reached the point of no return.
On the other hand, Russia has not been shy about attacking US military proxy assets inside of Syria. The provocations by Turkey is merely a response to Russian imperialism as one will see in the video listed below.
At some point, the U.S. will insert itself into the conflict, as the Russians will undoubtedly strike back against the Turks, inside of Turkey. My insider sources tell me that the initial insertion of the United States into a Syrian war against Russian forces, will commence with aerial combat that will result in the shooting down of Russian planes as they cross into the airspace of Turkey. From there, the air war will know no boundaries.
The U.S. will quickly gain the upper hand in the air war that is about to begin Syria.
According to a study secretly commissioned by the Pentagon and the CIA, and rehearsed at the Naval War College, it has been determined that the United States would dominate an air war in Syria as well as in the region as a whole. The study was leaked and was published by Global Firepower, much to the chagrin of the Pentagon who was trying to promote a far different picture to Congress in order to procure more military funding. Amazingly, my sources believe the leak came from within the Obama administration who is constantly seeking to weaken the United State military. Given the fact that Obama, himself, has weakened the defenses of Alaska, all on his own, and seeks to roll back US military size to pre-World War II levels, speaks to Obama’s intent to make America vulnerable to attack from Russia. However, in the present moment, The United States holds the upper hand when it comes to air power and it is not even close.
The Global Firepower group published study shows that the United States has about 5,000 fixed wing and fighter aircraft to Russia’s less than 2200 planes. The United States has over 13,000 planes of all types to Russia’s just over 3,500. The air war would be over in less than a week. As predicted in Isiah 17, Damascus will lie in ruins.
The Ensuing War at Sea
In a desperate attempt to save face as well as preserve the Assad regime, the Russians, short of relying on nuclear ICBMs would have to resort to a war at sea in order to negate US air superiority in Syria.
Again, the Russians would prove no match for the United States in this area.
The two most important ships in any regional conflict at sea are submarines and aircraft carriers.
My sources tell me that the United States has 10 active aircraft carriers. However, the number is deceptive. The US also has 56 decommissioned carriers, some of which could easily be rolled out of mothballs. Conventional thinking by our military indicates that they think that they could easily put together about 20 aircraft carriers. Global Firepower’s published study asserts that the United States would have 19 aircraft carriers that they could bring into any war with Russia. The Russians presently have one carrier. This advantage will prevent the insertion of Russian troops into the conflict.
In part, submarines serve to protect aircraft carriers, whose resulting air cover would cover any air campaign and ground troop invasion. The United States, at present, has 75 submarines to the Russia’s 60. Although, Russia has tremendously upgraded its submarine fleet, the improvements and the quantity of more “powerful” subs has not come close to tipping the balance of power.
In order to offset its strategic inferiority, the Russians have made significant improvements among their aircraft, air defenses, submarines, and electronic warfare. However, at present, I cannot find a legitimate military source that believes that these upgrades will alter the course of the war in Syria.
At the end of the day, Russia’s Air Force committed to the Syria theater, will be neutralized or even totally destroyed. The United States will take down Syria without much difficulty. In fact, some experts will privately state that Turkey, armed with NATO weaponry, has the ability to tie up the Russians in Syria on a indefinite basis. And when has the American military industrial complex ever minded a prolonged military conflict from which they could financially benefit from?
Most Americans will sleep a little easier knowing that the United States holds to upper hand when it comes to conflict in Syria. However, Putin has options, several military options that does not include Syria.
And what about China? In this scenario, and in the present state of world affairs, the Chinese would be very hesitant to insert themselves into the conflict because their economy appears to be in the early stages of free-fall. Historically, they occupy a similar, analogous position World War I Russia. Politically, Russia was in an economic, political and military mess. And what did they do? They quit World War I and left Britain and France to fend for themselves. Under the present conditions, so long as the Federal Reserve makes financial concessions to China, they will remain on the sidelines for the time being.
So how does all of this come to an end? Syria will be eviscerated and Assad will be toppled. The US will solidify its proxy forces inside of Syria as it turns its greedy eyes towards Iran.
Putin does have options, but they do not involve saving Syria. At this point, there will be two factors to consider:
- Putin’s secondary military options around the globe which can be brought to bear. against the United States.
- The Obama leadership question, or lack thereof. Obama makes Benedict Arnold look like a devout Patriot.
These two factors will be the topic of the next part in this series.
