As published in Russian International Affairs Council blog, 9 November 2018.
I make it a point to check the Russian International Affairs Council pages regularly, and I was not disappointed when I found President Igor Ivanov’s article, “Road to Nowhere,” as published also in The Moscow Times. Everything stated in this article is in my view correct.
HOWEVER, there is nothing in this article about the possibilities, in the next three weeks, of World War III starting because the Deep State owns the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and two of the Deep State’s top servants – Secretary General of NATO Jens Stoltenberg (Norway) and Supreme Allied Commander Europe General Curtis Scaparrotti (USA), have in my speculative view, planned the exercise TRIDENT JUNCTURE (TRJE18), in such a way as to make possible a first strike against Russia after a NATO GLADIO false flag operation takes place with one and perhaps more simulated Russian attacks manufactured as a Casus belli.
I am especially worried about the long guns now in Norway, in violation of the Norwegian Constitution in my view, each capable of delivering nuclear munitions, and about the MK-41 launching systems deployed during the varied NATO exercises (over 15 of them) this past year – each easily repurposed for firing banned ground-based cruise missiles.
We have three rogues at NATO, the third being Kay Bailey Hutchison, a woman who may have inadvertently revealed that the Deep State (not President Donald Trump and probably not Secretary of Defense James Mattis either) is planning a first-strike on Russia this year, before Russia completes its modernization program in 2020-2022.
I am an old spy, and I ran a false flag operations for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). I am intimately familiar with both the nature of such operations, and the frequency with which they are done both within NATO’s normal sphere of operations – the Red Guard terrorists in Italy were a NATO false flag operation – and across the USA, where 9/11 was planned by the Zionists with the direct embrace in 1990 of George H. W. Bush and then Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney, and executed by the Zionists with the protection of de facto President, titular Vice President, Dick Cheney in 2001. Since the modification of the Smith-Mundt Act under President Barack Obama, legalizing the telling of lies to the US public, false flag operations by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have become a staple in the USA – generally faked deaths but with some real deaths, we have had a series of false flag events, from Sandy Hook to the most recent Pittsburg Synagogue event. Under Obama these were intended to justify the eventual confiscation of all guns; under President Trump they appear to be a budget-building exercise toward a full police state and because of the President’s more pressing issues, such as the denuclearization of the Middle East, have not been subject to his guidance.
As a former Marine Corps infantry officer – indeed the Commandant of the Marine Corps today was a lieutenant one year senior to me in Battalion Landing Team 3/4 where he served as a company commander while I served as the S-1/Adjutant – I am deeply troubled by General Bob Neller’s telling his Marines to expect “a big-ass fight” with Russia.” This is alarming. General Neller, whose past assignments include that of President, Marine Corps University, is an extremely intelligent and balanced person. His saying that, in Norway, which is now armed to the teeth and receiving a portion of the largest arms shipment from the US to Europe since Kosovo, is alarming.
I am certain in my heart that NATO GLADIO is planning one or more false flag operations as part of TRIDENT JUNCTURE. I am deeply worried that TRIDENT JUNCTURE includes the distribution of nuclear artillery munitions to US forces now deployed.
It is my personal view, given the most delicate matters before all of us at this time, that President Vladimir Putin should express directly to President Donald Trump his concern when they meet in Paris on Sunday 11 November, the anniversary date of the end of World War I, which was itself started by a false flag event.
Although a formal meeting is not planned, President Putin is perfectly capable of whispering in President Trump’s ear, when they meet to shake hands, and in English, “We should talk –you may have lost control of Scaparrotti and he could be planning to start a war without your permission.”
It merits comment that our two Presidents, and General Secretary Xi Jinping, are reported to have agree that they would not allow themselves to be manipulated into starting WWIII. What none of them may have foreseen was the combination of Deep Staters Stoltenberg, Scaparrotti, and Hutchinson – all as crazy and fanatical as former NATO Commander Philip Breedlove – going rogue.
If I were President of the USA today, I would recall Scaparrotti for consultation and keep him in Washington, while mandating the immediate withdrawal of all US forces from all countries bordering on Russia. I believe Presidents Putin and Trump are being “set up” for a confrontation that will scale out of control because the Americans in charge of NATO lust for war and have arranged a pretext for war.
I will end by recollecting the shared confidence between President John F. Kennedy, before he was assassinated by the Deep State, and Premier Nikita Khrushchev – both agreed that the greatest enemies to peace were their own generals. I believe that most Russian generals and many American generals no longer lust for a war between our two countries but I also believe that NATO is the weak link in the fragile peace that we have right now.
Please, President Putin, whisper in our President’s ear on Sunday, “We should talk –you may have lost control of Scaparrotti and he could be planning to start a war without your permission.”

 Editors, “BARBAROSSA 2.0: NATO OPENS THE BALTIC FRONT,” Katehon, 23 June 2017. As a professional intelligence officer with integrity (the same cannot be said for most of my peers), I personally destroyed John Brennan’s attempts to fabricate the Russian threat in relation to the 2016 elections, and I am offended by those who would ignore the predatory nature of US power on behalf of the Deep State these many past years while exaggerating the Russian threat – as President Putin once noted, the USA has 1,000 bases around the world, Russia has – at the time – three.

 I was the first to report in the English language on the agreement to denuclearize the Koreas, and was called a lunatic by conventional minds who do not understand the unique possibilities of direct communications between General Secretary Xi Jinping, President Donald Trump, and President Vladimir Putin. Robert Steele, “Is Zionism Over? From Korea to Syria to the Latest #GoogleGestapo Purge, President Donald Trump’s Divorce from Zionism Appears Increasingly Possible,” American Herald Tribune, 4 March 2018. President Trump is doing his best to be responsible in the face of the still-entrenched Deep State across the US economy, government, and society.

 Apart from his being honored by the Atlantic Council, during which visit he no doubt received confirming instructions to do his best to justify a war with Russia, Scaparrotti’s depictions of Russia border on the insane. See for instance Ciaran McGrath, “Russia is using EVERY trick in Putin’s book to overthrow West: NATO chief SHOCK warning,” Express (UK), 21 March 2018; Editors, “US General: Russia Destabilizing International Order (VIDEO: 3:10),” Associated Press, 20 March 2018; Henry Holloway, “‘We need to be ready to FIGHT’ US general wants MORE troops for showdown with Russia,” The Daily Star (UK), 3 May 2017; and Oli Smith, “World War 3 warning: US ramps up ‘war-capabilities’ as top general puts Russia ‘ON NOTICE’.” Express (UK), 15 October 2018;

 I cannot recollect the source. For a very fine discussion of the problem on the US side, see Robert Dallek, “JFK vs. the Military,” The Atlantic, JFK Issue, 2013. As best I can tell, we have three groups of generals in the US military: those that are committed to the Deep State and the military-industrial complex; those that are simply trying to finish their careers and retire; and a very small but extraordinarily powerful and covert group that selected Donald Trump to be president and be the face of a counter-coup against the Deep State that began the day after 9/11. WWIII has already started in one sense – the war in the shadows between good and evil – but in another sense, the conventional sense, WWIII could be triggered by NATO GLADIO false flags and a US general all too eager to pull the trigger on nuclear artillery with or without presidential authority or a Congressional declaration of war.
