World War 3: Russian Tanks Invade Ukraine, Bombers Buzz US Coast... Or Is That Russophobia Propaganda?

Patrick Frye

Is the talk about World War 3 just propaganda generated by Western media? Recent headlines have reported on Russian tanks invading eastern Ukraine and Russian bombers spotted by the US Air Force about 50 miles off of California's coastline. Or is America suffering from an old-fashioned, 1950's style case of "Russophobia" as claimed by the government of Vladimir Putin?

In a related report by The Inquisitr, some financial experts claim China and Russia have started Cold War 2 by launching initiatives to wage open economic warfare on the US dollar and US companies. Bill Clinton even claims Putin is trying to build a new Russian empire to rival the one from the USSR and Hillary has compared the Russian President to Hitler.

But some experts believe the United States will start World War 3 and not the other two countries. For example, some people claim the United States space command is planning a nuclear weapons first strike scenario in the event that WW3 starts.

Despite Russia's advances in the Ukraine and the annexation of Crimea, some people believe that the United States' influence over the world is to blame. For example, one Russian born journalist writes that the US and NATO are pushing the world to the brink of World War 3:

"The anti-Chinese and anti-Russian propaganda howl is reaching a deafening crescendo, especially in Asia. Western media outlets are in the highest gear, spreading propaganda through both their own outlets and through their local media affiliates in the client states, mostly owned by big business. China and Russia are now vilified, openly insulted, and blamed for the escalation of tensions in the Asia-Pacific region, and for the military build up. The entire mighty Western propaganda machine is now at work, demonizing China, Russia and other independent countries. It is because the West is obviously pushing this planet towards the war."
"Anti-Semitism started World War II, Russophobia could start the third. Finland is one of the most russiphobian countries in Europe, together with Sweden and the Baltic states.... Russia recommends Finland not to join NATO. That military alliance has lost its aim and goal and is therefore looking for new tasks. If Finland joins NATO it would weaken the security in Europe, not strengthen it."

Besides Russia, it's also claimed that the US Navy is "re-positioning 60 per cent of US military assets to the Pacific," and Filipino newspapers are comparing the Ukraine crisis to China by saying, "Russia's incursion into Ukraine has raised concern in Washington that China may try something similar in staking its territorial claims, in the guise of protecting its citizens overseas."

As an example, the Vietnam riots targeted Chinese companies and also the Chinese oil rigs that have allegedly invaded Vietnam's waters in order to steal their oil.

If World War 3 starts, who do you think should be blamed: Russia, China, or the United States? Will it even matter who started it, when everyone will probably die in a nuclear apocalypse?
