When we watch documentaries of historical events it is important to keep in mind that the video has to squeeze years and years worth of notable information in a very small window of time (around 2 hours). Therefore we must also realize that the events which led up to war took many years to put in place.
We need to realize that all of the seemingly isolated incidents may not be as isolated as we’d like. To me, all of the pieces are starting to fit together for a global confrontation of some sort; LaRouche claims it will be a thermonuclear confrontation.
Pieces being put into place
The road to war in Iran runs through Syria. The U.S. and Israel (along with a few U.N. buddies) have been barking for war with Iran for quite a while now. So far they have been unsuccessful in their provocation and have turned their eyes to Syria because they have a mutual defense pact with Iran. So, if Syria gets pulled into an armed conflict, Iran is obligated to join in to help their ally.
Today, I read that China is now moving warships through the Suez Canal and possibly on their way to the Syrian coast.
When the time is right

Regardless of splitting hairs on the issue, Israel hasn’t taken military action off of the table; for that matter the U.S. itself still has all the options on the table too (whatever that means)…there is something terrible in the air and it may get ugly very fast.
