With each passing day, World War III seems closer and closer to becoming a reality. If it’s not radical Islamic terrorists, it’s the Russians. If it’s not the Russians, it’s the Chinese military. If it’s not the Chinese military, it’s Iran. No matter what side of the world we’re talking about, someone is likely only moments away from attacking the United States. As horrifically as it sounds, we’ve almost gotten completely used to the idea that a foreign country could potentially try to nuke us, leading to a full-scale nuclear war.
Adam Kredo of The Washington Free Beacon reports, “Iran’s Artesh Air Force kicked off a three-day series of drills aimed at displaying the Islamic Republic’s air might, according to Iranian military officials who told the country’s state-run press that the drills are in preparations for upcoming war … Top Iranian military commanders say the armed forces remain committed to removing the American presence from the region.”
It’s clear from this statement that the Iranian military desperately wants the United States to stay out of Iran. For the libertarians of the world, this logic is easy to completely understand. There’s no reason why the American government should be involved in any of these affairs, but that doesn’t make it a good idea for Iran to threaten to wage war on our entire country. There’s no doubt that it would end horribly for them, but our country — and the rest of the world — needs to avoid warfare at all costs.
This year just continues to get more and more unpredictable. Just when you think it has reached a peak of lunacy, new information is revealed that manages to make the situation even more complicated than it previously was. And while there is no way to accurately be prepared for what a potential World War III might bring with it, there are a number of precautions we can take in order to be best ready for what may come. The last thing any of us need is to be blindsided by an attack from a foreign power, leading to mass hysteria.
We have to avoid electing more establishment politicians that will profit off of more wars. They are the sole reason why the United States military continues to occupy countries that we have no business being in. With them gone, our troops will return home and the likelihood of World War III will drop drastically. So remember that when you walk into your polling place this election day…
