The Unspoken War

By Jim Kirwan


Poverty & Luxury

The West likes to think of our wars in terms of Black & White or Us and Them. But usually every major war is composed in “threes”. This one, if it comes, will have a lot to do with Poverty and the potential end of Luxury: For all but the very few.

With the dollar fading out amid the waste and ruin of societies that are drowning in pollution, poisons and corruption throughout our totally contradictory way of life: The image above is held together by the ancient Greek symbol for Ecology. But the coming war, if that happens, will have far more to do with “Bread & Roses” than with the billions of people that have made gold far-more important than the natural life that once flourished on the planet.

Yesterday there was an article about something I haven’t heard about since I was a teenager: The continuing possibility of War between India and Pakistan.

December 11, 2013 "Information Clearing House - "PTI" - WASHINGTON -A nuclear war between India and Pakistan would result in a global famine that could kill over two billion people — a quarter of the world's population — and end human civilization, a study warned today.”

India” was the world’s largest colonial nation, before breaking free from England. When the breakup of India happened nothing about the future of the parts that were loosed was clear. This too deals with three countries not just two. Kashmir, the third element, has also become divided since the war in 1947. Involved are religious and political differences that cloud the many issues: But the nuclear aspects trump everything else, since the Red-Chinese took control over Tibet, which was a separate state at the time of the Indian-Pakistan war.

"A nuclear war using only a fraction of existing arsenals would produce massive casualties on a global scale—far more than we had previously believed," said Ira Helfand, the study's author and co-president of the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW).

In a previous study in 2012, the Nobel Peace Prize- winning IPPNW and Physicians for Social Responsibility said that a nuclear famine could kill more than a billion people.

The new study '
Nuclear Famine: Two Billion People at Risk?‘is based upon research published by climate scientists who have assessed the impact of nuclear explosions on the Earth's atmosphere and other ecosystems.

According to the study, a nuclear war using as few as 100 weapons anywhere in the world would disrupt the global climate and agricultural production so severely that the lives of more than two billion people would be in jeopardy.

"A billion people dead in the developing world is obviously a catastrophe unparalleled in human history. But then if you add to that the possibility of another 1.3 billion people in China being at risk, we are entering something that is clearly the end of civilization," Helfand said.

"Chinese winter wheat production would fall 50 per cent in the first year and, averaged over the entire decade after the war, would be 31 per cent below baseline," it said.

"The prospect of a decade of widespread hunger and intense social and economic instability in the world's largest country has immense implications for the entire global community, as does the possibility that the huge declines in Chinese wheat production will be matched by similar declines in other wheat producing countries," Helfand said.

He said the study looked at India and Pakistan as the two sides have fought three full-fledged wars since 1947.

But the author also said that the earth would expect a similar impact from any limited nuclear war. Modern atomic weapons are far more powerful than the US bombs that killed more than 200,000 people in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945.

"Countries around the world — those who are nuclear-armed and those who are not — must work together to eliminate the threat and consequences of nuclear war," Helfand said.

"In order to eliminate this threat, we must eliminate nuclear weapons," he added.”

A reader had this to say:

Indian and Pakistan have been pissed off at each other for as long as I can remember. The only thing that has stopped their war is the nuclear deterrent that they both possess.

However, on the Capitalistic side ~ if they go at it hot and heavy w/o destroying the upper atmosphere, USI will need to bring the off shore jobs home.

No more tech support from a “Steve”, a person that can’t even speak the Queen’s English.

The carnage may take out the people trying to get here on H1B or H2B visa, and might be quicker for manufacturers to offer Americans the jobs (or what may happen is that the Chinese get the jobs). And there is a million other dynamics that could change.

Medical bills, (pharmaceuticals) clothing, things made from brass and stainless steel, etc, etc, etc, will need to be made somewhere else.

And this is where it may be cheaper to on-shore these processes rather than build new plants in Eastern Europe or give everything to the Chinese. Businesses are finding that that may not be economically smart or feasible.

k) This makes the assumption that the rest of the world could have this war, without interrupting our primary-obsessions with goods & services ­ which if this war happens would seem extremely unlikely: Especially if this war did major damage to the already challenged upper atmosphere…?

Maybe this situation might more likely devolve into this version of

WANT & ABUNDANCE than anything we’re experiencing now?

The world will have to recycle ships in another country. I have seen how they do that in films. They wait until the highest tide then run the ships aground and cut them up on the beach.

The labor pool is so large that management doesn’t worry about lost men or like in this country, worker comp or OSHA.

At least 1 person a day dies while recycling these ships and there are a 1000 men standing in line waiting for the next guy to die. Exactly like our industrial revolution.

Hell, I remember at the end of the movie “War games” where the computer is running the simulations of war games and what comes up on the screen is the Indio/Pakistan conflict.

Between the 2, the game runs in computer time and both countries are wiped off the map.

Like the computer states at the end, it’s best not to “play the game” at all.”

In any case it would seem that while the planet has been subsumed by the “Global War for the One-World-Order: Perhaps we’ve forgotten that to actually change anything about the global-situation the people of the planet would need to consider THOUGHT before ACTION?

If there is a nuclear war on this scale in our future between the nuclear states of India & Pakistan: Then Israel’s blackmail will finally be underscored as the insanity that Netanyahu and his self-consumed unfinished-state-of-Israel have always represented…
