The current tensions and saber rattling with North Korea could be coming to a head—which would inevitably kick off world war III—by as early as March 20, 2018, according to intelligence insider, James Rickards.

Rickards, who has worked closely with U.S. intelligence agencies over the last two decades, was once asked to simulate asymmetric economic attacks on the U.S. financial system and is an expert at escalation scenarios and end games. Rickards notes that we should expect this war in the next 12 weeks, because “the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency told me,” writes Rickards.

The most important financial or geopolitical issue in the world today is a coming war between the U.S. and North Korea, probably in the next twelve weeks.


How can I be so sure about the timing? The Director of the Central Intelligence Agency told me.


In a private conclave in Washington DC on October 20, 2017, CIA Director Mike Pompeo told a small think tank group (including me) that it would be imprudent to assume it would take North Korea more than ‘five months’ to have a reliable arsenal of nuclear-armed ICBM missiles. These could strike U.S. cities and kill millions of Americans.


Five months from October 20, 2017 is March 20, 2018. That’s an outside date but the war will likely begin before then.


While Rickards claims could be dismissed as hearsay, they are backed up by recent public admissions from top generals.

Just last week, Marine Corps commandant Gen. Robert Neller warned US troops stationed in Norway that a war is coming.

“I hope I’m wrong, but there’s a war coming,” Neller told them. “You’re in a fight here, an informational fight, a political fight, by your presence.”

It’s not only US military officials echoing these ominous predictions of war either. Chinese General Wang Gongguang also said that war will be likely before March.

“The war on the Korean Peninsula might break out anytime between now and March next year,” Wang told the Global Times, adding that “China should be psychologically prepared for a potential Korean war, and the Northeast China regions should be mobilized for that.”

As TFTP reported earlier this month, revealing the extreme direness of the situation on the Korean Peninsula, a state-run Chinese media outlet based in a province bordering North Korea and Russia — the Jilin Daily — published a “common sense” guide for surviving a nuclear war.

China is not the only state in Southeast Asia to issue guidelines for surviving a nuclear attack, as both Japan and South Korea have carried out emergency exercises and issued similar guidelines.

Make no mistake, a preemptive strike on North Korea will set off a global chain of events propelling the world’s superpowers into world war. The Chinese government has previously said that they reject military intervention, but in the event that the U.S. launches a preemptive strike on North Korea – the Chinese military WILL intervene in defense of the North.

Sadly, this entire scenario has been escalated to this point by those who claim to want peace.

For decades, the insane dictatorship that is North Korea has been making hollow threats — none of which they have ever carried out since the Korean war. Since the Korean War, North and South Korea have engaged in incursions and sabotage within each other’s respective countries, but North Korea has never attacked anyone else since.

As Ron Paul pointed out, the fact that North Korea is not an actual threat to the US is of no interest to those buying into the fear mongering war propaganda. Even the non-interventionists who supported Trump are buying into the sheer apocalyptic lunacy that would be a war with North Korea.

“The propagandists are winning,” said Paul. Indeed they are and now, we have evidence that their warmongering insanity could have dire repercussions for the entire planet.

Until these hard truths are faced by the citizens of this country, we will continue to aggressively antagonize and provoke other countries like North Korea until one of these psychopaths — with their finger on the ‘red button’ — kicks off a global nuclear holocaust.

Being antiwar is not some cowardly stance by peaceniks and hippies, it is the only way to ensure humanity’s future on this planet.

Peace is not only the goal, but it is the only effective path by which that goal is reached.

DASH cryptocurrency and The Free Thought Project have formed a partnership that will continue to spread the ideas of peace and freedom while simultaneously teaching people how to operate outside of the establishment systems of control like using cryptocurrency instead of dollars. Winning this battle is as simple as choosing to abstain from the violent corrupt old system and participating in the new and peaceful system that hands the power back to the people. DASH is this system.

DASH digital cash takes the control the banking elite has over money and gives it back to the people. It is the ultimate weapon in the battle against the money changers and information controllers.

If you'd like to start your own DASH wallet and be a part of this change and battle for peace and freedom, you can start right here. DASH is already accepted by vendors all across the world so you can begin using it immediately.

  1. 1913′ ww3 was initiated. The very year that the Federal Reserve system was enacted into positive US law. Everyone became enemies of the fractional reserve lending state. Everyone! If we will examine the history of the world since that year we will see that every nation that opposed those fractional reserve lending practices was met with Instant demonization and propaganda attacks as the latest boogieman/terrorist nation/state and national security threat to the US/Federal Reserve bank. We don’t have the traditional government you’re all taught about in the public indoctrination centers called public schools, what we have is a bank pretending to offer government services. To stop warfare we must stop using the private bank’s debt iinstrument/dollars as our medium of exchange and return to honest weights and measures like silver bullion in Troy ounce denominations. We do so by creating relationships with the small business owners who agree to accept anything other than the Federal Reserve notes/dollars or its digital variants as a trade for goods and services. Then we actually trade exclusively with those small business owners and connect other small business owners with other SBO’s. Look at Ithaca bucks and mountain hours for example and #puregoldpages. It’s a choice we make at the individual level to perpetuate warfare or have pax perpetua aut bellum perpetua. I’ll take the former thanks I’ve seen and participated in the latter. Not good.

  2. Anyone who has been to the Korean peninsula knows full well that a ground attack will only happen during the winter months.

    Rivers and rice paddies don’t support tanks and vehicles very good and there just are not a lot of “connecting” roads…

    Why do you think the US had “Team Spirit” exercises in March every year…

  3. This isn’t my usual tune, but I recommend ignoring anything Jim Rickards says. He’s been saying roughly the same thing with revised dates for years.

    That said, it’s never a bad time to stock up on dry goods, toiletries, and metals (steel, silver, copper, lead). Always pray for peace, always work for peace, but always prepare for and spiritually brace for war and the worst that it brings.
