Flashpoint in Ukraine explains today’s most important geopolitical issue. It’s the gravest one since WW II.

Possible global war looms. Things head perilously closer to it than any previous time. Neocons infest Washington. They influence administration policy.

They want Russian and Chinese rivals marginalized, weakened, isolated and controlled. They’re surrounding both countries with US bases.

Obama’s pivot is global. Unchallenged worldwide dominance is sought. Multiple direct and proxy wars continue. More are planned.

Ukraine is in the eye of the storm. Washington wants all former Soviet republics and Warsaw Pact countries co-opted into NATO.

Ukraine is the crown jewel. Eastern resistance threatens Obama’s imperial project. Preserving it requires crushing it. Doing so risks civil war.

At risk is spilling it cross border. Potential East/West confrontation could follow. Global wars start this way.

WW I and II weapons were toys compared to today’s super-weapons. Admiral Hyman Rickover was the father of America’s nuclear navy.

In 1982 congressional testimony, he said:

“In all wars, man has used the best weapons available to him.”

“If history has any meaning for us, it shows that men will continue to use (them) to win.”

They’ll use everything in their arsenals to prevent losing. America v. Russia and/or China risks possible mushroom-shaped cloud denouement.

Flashpoint Ukraine conditions risk the unthinkable. This book explains what everyone needs to know. It’s more vital now than ever.
