Small miscalculations create great wars, and the law of unintended consequences governs the way the unfold and how they end. In June of 1914 when the Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated in Sarajevo, nobody imagined that the greatest war know to that time would be triggered as a result, and that it would destroy an orderly world and lead to another eighty years of upheaval. Similarly, when Dean Acheson made a policy speech in 1950 that failed to mention that Korea was considered an ally by the US, nobody realized that North Korea would then start the horrific Korean war that has led to the situation we face today, with the possibility that a hot war could break out at any time.

The situation as it exists now and the one that existed in 1914 are disturbingly similar. There is a lot of misunderstood conflict energy. Neither side appears to realize how quickly a nuclear exchange could trigger a wider war. Both the US and Korea appear to be attempting to goad the other into shooting first, always a dangerous situation.

If there is a war, even if it doesn’t become nuclear, the United States is going to suffer a catastrophe. It will not lose it’s war, but the South Koreans will. With their largest city just 30 miles from the border and under siege from 5,000 North Korean artillery pieces, Seoul will suffer terrible damage. US prestige in the world, already at historic lows, will suffer an irreparable blow. What will happen to our alliances and partnerships then is completely unpredictable.

Now, I’m going to draw on something I learned a while back from the visitors. There was a time when I wouldn’t have brought them in to a journal llike this, but with Robert Bigelow stating frankly on 60 Minutes that aliens are here, and the To The Stars experts standing up and saying that UFOs are real, and behind the scenes efforts to understand the abduction phenomenon bound to go public sooner or later, I think it’s time to make more open use of what I have learned from them.

Back in the mid-nineties, I asked them to show me a world a little worse off than ours and one a little better off. The better off one had opened itself to what we are attempting to open ourselves to now, and had accepted responsibility for its own history and its future. The worse off one had divided into two great dictatorships and, very abruptly one day, experienced an annihilating nuclear exchange.

On the first planet, there was freedom, no overpopulation and a healthy environment. On the second, there was no freedom, the population was bursting at the seams, and the air was yellow with pollution.

I have thought long about these visions, and here is how I think they relate to our world. First, we are both sliding in the direction of the worse off planet and striving for goals that had been met by the better off one. I think, overall, we are in better shape than we realize. When I look back over the past century, I see a world torn by massive wars and trying to split into two worldwide dictatorships. There is nothing like that now.

What we do have now, however, is a country that is trying hard to get nuclear weapons, and may already posses them, and which cannot be trusted to handle them responsibly. The United States has gone to war with North Korea and has engaged in diplomatic dialog for more than 50 years, all without result. Now it is trying extreme provocation in an effort to provoke North Korea into firing first.

The way the conflict is likely to start is with a North Korean attack on an American plane or naval unit. This has happened a number of times under other presidents, but this one will almost certainly react violently, possibly using nuclear weapons.

From that moment on, the law of unintended consequences will apply. I always like to remain optimistic, but I have to say that, hiding behind the seeming impossibility that another world war could take place, is the unexpected and unanticipated.

In July of 1914, few people thought that the European conflict would escalate. A month later, the upheaval had started. The reason that it happened was really quite simple: a series of interlocking treaties committed various nations to support by allies if they were attacked, and once a country started mobilizing its rivals had to do the same. If one country mobilized and its neighbors didn’t, they risked being overrun.

If the United States or one of its carrier task forces or an important ally like Japan were to be struck by a North Korean nuclear weapon, the Russian and Chinese leaders will then be facing a desperately dangerous unknown. An unstable president has already made dire threats against North Korea’s trading partners. What might he do? Can they risk his finger on the nuclear button, or should they move preemptively to destroy his ability to attack them?

I hope neither power ever comes face to face with such a decision. The consequences are likely to be tragic.

  1. OOOOOO Whitley, you could
    OOOOOO Whitley, you could have talked all day and not gone there… Once again you have brought our attention back around to the elephant in the room. I think that most of the people who have a Gm of functional grey matter have also looked at this situation, and come to exactly the same conclusion as you have… As the Manitous have said, we are entering into very perilous times. The terrible thing about this is that there is not much that we can DO to stop it… too many unstable factions out there… too many predatory beings feeding off the energy…There is nothing really organized at which we can aim a beam of reason or positivity Our grove has not done a scry in a while… that last ones were very much along the same lines as your thinking is now… But I’m afraid that once again, you are right.

  3. I don’t think that we are
    I don’t think that we are victims of the violent currents of history so much as participants in them. It is very important to be an unwilling participant, for as long as that hesitancy is there–that yearning toward a better way–there is hope that the violence may be diverted.

    1. I can participate through
      I can participate through prayer. Never underestimate the power of prayer, especially when done with large masses of people – all united in visualizing a much better world for all of us regardless of creed, ethnicity, or identity. The Fatima Letters, if they are to be believed, claimed that our destruction could be averted – that the future can be changed. Moreover, with the reports of UFOs hanging around military nuclear launch sites/stockpiles (Rendalsham Forest incident in 1980 is just one example), as well as documented video surveillance of a UFO dismantling a NIKE test missile in mid-flight, I can only hope the ‘Others’ possess the ability to stop a nuclear missile exchange if they see fit to do so. In conclusion, I have grown weary of living under a possible nuclear catastrophe and I am still very fearful of the possibility. So, I and other people pray, at least.

  5. Just the term ‘war’, is being
    Just the term ‘war’, is being tossed about daily, and often in ways that have nothing to do with real ‘war’. Steve Bannon has declared ‘war’ on the Republican establishment, Trump recently spoke about ending the ‘war on Christmas’, and Scott Pruitt just declared that the ‘war on coal’ is over. A couple of weeks ago, Kellyanne Conway defended Trump by stating that as president he had the right to say just about anything, but if anyone challenged or disparaged him, it was a problem because “we are at war” and saying anything against him was disloyalty to him and the country. Then there is the ‘war on terror’, and of course, one that has been going on since the Reagan administration, the ‘war on drugs’. We have got the word ‘war’ so embedded in our consciousness, that we can’t seem to do without it, and people have accepted it as the ‘norm’ without realizing what war really is and its consequences.

    Common sense and a knowledge of history are paramount and, unfortunately, both appear to be lacking in our culture at this time, and most people surely realize by now that our president doesn’t know The Constitution or American and world history. Can our president and many Americans be so ignorant and proud of it? That’s the way it all makes me feel…

    I worry for everyone, not just my own country, and I choose not to be a victim or a willing participant in the madness. Now, more than ever, we all must keep our integrity, regardless of the “violent currents” swirling around us.

  7. I never thought I would long
    I never thought I would long for the good old days of the Cuban Missile Crisis. But even then, JFK was worried about controlling the situation. He was a military veteran who worried that “There’s always some SOB (in the chain of command) who doesn’t get the message.” And now if you add in hackers we are really at the mercy of luck.
    I was a senior in high school in Oct. 1962. For reasons I won’t go into, my family had access to a bomb shelter. Fast forward 55 years. My two best high school friends and,
    I, along with our husbands, were having a small reunion at one of our homes. For some reason the conversation turned to those terrifying days. I casually mentioned the secret bomb shelter, forgetting that I never told anyone, ever. At that moment (we were all now in our late 60s) my two best friends rose out of their chairs and yelled, “You mean you had access to a bomb shelter during the Cuban Missile Crisis and you didn’t tell US?” I said, “Um yeah, my dad told me not to.” Boy, I had buried that secret so deep I hid it from myself for more than five decades.
    I also had nuclear nightmares well into the 1980s.
    The point is that in 1962, we were tuned into the news literally minute by minute during that week. In 2017, no one seems to be taking care of this situation. Who is in charge? We all know it’s the worst possible answer: Nobody is in charge.

  9. To me, the constant use of

    To me, the constant use of the term ‘war’ is yet another symptom of our collective anger addiction. We have come to need a state of rage in order to feel a sense of self-confidence, something that I think emerges out of a collective inner feeling of weakness. Strong people don’t need to shout. That’s also why, traditionally, the US president didn’t threaten: he didn’t need to. But when he did it, he meant it–always.

    Now we have a president who spreads threats like confetti. A telling example of what that means is when he recently tweeted that he would cut off trade relations with countries trading with North Korea–that is to say Russia and China. Neither country even bothered to reply. Why should they? Russia can live without our trade, and we can’t live without China’s.

    Our position in the world has been dangerously undercut by this presidency. I am quite sure that Donald Trump had help in the election from Russia, but not because they could count on him as a friend. Not at all. That didn’t matter to them. What they were after was his incompetence, and that they got.

  13. I have been trying, since
    I have been trying, since before the election, to distance myself from the thought that Trump was in some way working with elements of Russia to win the election. It just seemed so hard to accept. What patriotic American would ever stoop to such tactics as utilizing the help of our longest standing “enemy”? I hate to use that term, because it has such a negative connotation. However, it has become painfully and terrifyingly obvious that Trump has done exactly that. It explains his bizarre and irrational denial of what he calls” The Russia Story”. Unfortunately it is not fake news, not by a long stretch. I had held off on believing my instincts, but that time has passed. Trump has shown himself to be not only, as Fareed Zakaria called ‘breathtakingly incompetent’, but what I consider a traitor to this country. Trying to turn the people against the press, destroying the important roles that the US plays in international politics, ceding them to our very most difficult competitors(Russia and China) is a disgrace. And he did this to accomplish 2 things: Increase his personal and family wealth, and feed his massive ego. The callous way he has directed his attack on the poor(most dramatically shown by his dismantling of Obama Care and then his inattention to Puerto Rico)should have removed any doubt in any objective person’s mind. I can only hope that more Republicans like John McCain stand up to him. I truly believe that the future of our Republic is at stake.

  15. Having lived in Arizona for
    Having lived in Arizona for 70 years, I have to say that I wouldn’t count on Sen. McCain to save us. He didn’t punch Trump back early in the primaries when Trump said he liked people who don’t get captured. And McCain never could find his voice during the last days of the general election to say that he didn’t support the Trump candidacy and wouldn’t vote for him. Our hope is other Republicans. McCain will only save the day when the formidable posse has already formed and he can step up to the front and take credit for being the leader. It’s a possibility but it depends upon the coalescence and strength of others.

    Whitley, It seems to me that the current state of the world is looking more and more like a mirror image of that poor planet that you projected to, where the two factions were rattling sabers loudly, and upon your return, had incinerated the entire planet.
    I hope that cooler heads and hearts prevail here…

    Hi Whitley,

    I have a few comments about this particular discussion I’d like to share. First, I’ve been in contact with “the visitors” directly, many from Taurus, Lepus and Canis Major. I think you refer to them as “hybrids”? Many photos of “non hybrids”. Obviously, their identity goes to the grave as part of deal to have direct contact…the information given is for the public. We had several discussions about your experiences, if interested..let me know

    As far as this discussion … it has been explained “by the visitors” about the influence they have and purpose for being here. Hillary and Trump….they influenced who would do “the least amount of destruction” with Hillary..(besides the HillBilly’s body count and deals with China, selling she the .immediately engaging in wars and already collapsing a government. Trump’s style is less refined but the focus was on the stronghold in the Middle East and Asian territories the United States is tangled up in for weapon defense contracts. He, Trump, being a “loose canon” is not predictable and doesn’t follow political finesse…actually, an advantage, not only strategically, but in our government entangled in privatized back door deals.

    Now, this is what I found interesting. “They” said…
    The focus to solve world affairs is more important than warning, to prevent. This creates awareness, yes, at the same time strong emotions falling on deaf ears. Solutions to current global conditions, disassembled air crafts, meaning…The global industrialists and leaders clamoring for world positioning, greed and power prevent the ultimate prize they seek… space travel and time manipulation. Earth’s nuclear resources are necessary components – they can be used to destroy a country for a small victory or intelligently used to access “the gates” of the universe.

    “Alien Tech” is not a secret to the military. We watch all leaders decisions closely. Proof is found on November 22, 1963 – Air Force One, find us standing in the doorways observing the bloody oath, in one frame of time ….viewed by billions of people…wanting to know of our existence and not willing to see what is right in front of them.
