Russian analysts agree - Apocalypse looms
They differ with Bernard Lewis only on the timing.
“Such a scenario does not seem too unrealistic to me,” comments Sergey Markov, a Russian political scientist, “These days anything is possible in the Middle East. People living there are crazy and they constantly keep playing with fire. Their situation has gone out of control and is ready to explode any minute. In fact, the new world war is already going in that place.”The article lays out a Five Act timeline, the first of which has already come to pass. The second act would involve an attack by Iran that would give Washington and Tel-Aviv the "official right to retaliate against Iran."
The Third ActThis does not look promising, to put it mildly.Israel will attack Iranian nuclear sites. The U.S. will provide its support through the Navy in the Persian Gulf and perhaps through the Air Force. Iran will not delay with its own full-scale attack against the Israeli sites and the U.S. ships.The Fourth Act
At this point no one can guarantee that the rest of the Arab World is going to remain watching as an innocent and uninvolved bystander.Very soon such participants as Turkey will inevitably get dragged into the funnel of war. In Iraq and Afghanistan anti-government militant groups will become very active. Finally the conflict will focus on the fighting for the control over the territories with major oil resources. That is exactly with the U.S. is after.
The eventual possession of the oil treasury by one of the conflicting sides will provoke harsh resistance from both Asia and Europe. Russia is also very likely to get provoked into becoming an active participant. In the end this might become the Ultimate Fifth Act, in which no one wishes to believe . . .
"The pulling of the trigger leading to the tragic chain of events has been done. Syria and Iran will be pulled into the war right after Lebanon. Israeli and American attacks on Iran will lead to the interruption of oil exports into Europe and China. Their economies will suffer. In the conclusion there will be chaos all across Asia.
The detonation device for the new apocalypse has been set off by Americans, obviously. They believe that they have the power and the authority to REGULATE the world’s CHAOS. But the U.S. cannot even gain control over its own minor chaos in Latin America. Let us only hope that Russia will remain neutral throughout this universal nightmare."--Alexander Prohanov, the main editor of “Zavtra” Newspaper: “Apocalypse Tomorrow”

"This war is utterly futile for either one of the sides. And as the one lacking in logic it is all the more dangerous. The most dangerous aspect lies in the fact that Israel (and perhaps even Iran by now) possess nuclear weapons and are able to put them to use. This means the beginning of the global war because other countries will not be able to remain uninvolved in the collision of civilizations of this magnitude."Cui Bono?--Alexander Vladimirov, major general and VP of the Board of Military Experts of Russia: “Collision of Civilizations”
Who benefits from a war that is utterly futile for both sides?
What's happening here is a controlled global demolition.
