Why Zelensky’s World War III Gambit Will Fail

A continually unhinged Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has spent the past year trying to draw NATO powers into direct conflict with Russia, and he has yet to achieve success, despite many attempts to do so. While the rhetoric between D.C., Brussels, and Moscow has certainly become more fiery, the kinetic pieces on the geopolitical chessboard have remained steadily in place, because the major parties to the conflict do not want to witness World War III breaking out.

Why Zelensky’s World War III Gambit Will Fail

On Thursday, Zelensky ramped up the rhetoric even further, calling on NATO forces to bomb Russia and try to eliminate their nuclear arsenal.

Of course, such a mission, which would launch WWIII, is not even possible, as Moscow retains the nuclear triad and thousands of nuclear weapons at their disposal.

Zelensky, an actor by trade, doesn’t seem to care about the details. He just wants NATO/US forces on the ground in Ukraine, and he’s willing to accept World War III to make that happen.

Last week, Zelensky signed an expedited NATO application.

The good news, at least for now, is that none of the major parties involved in this conflict want nuclear armageddon via WWIII.

NATO powers certainly do not want to get thrown into a direct skirmish with Russia. As the past several months have shown, they are only content to pursue the arming and funding of Ukraine from the sidelines of the war.

These powers remain committed to propping up Kiev as the tip of the spear in what they hope is a long, drawn out conflict with Moscow. They do not seek a Ukrainian victory over Russia, but an Afghanistan-like perpetual war that acts both to weaken their foe and facilitate several forms of laundering for the global elite.

Thankfully, the leaders of Western powers don’t actually believe the hysterical nonsense about Putin being some kind of imperial Hitler-like figure who seeks to conquer the entirety of Europe.

The Russians don’t want World War III either. Their overt goal, as articulated by the Kremlin, is to eliminate the threats to their territorial integrity. Their more unspoken goal, as proven by Russia’s political and military actions, is to secure territory that is both strategically valuable and populated by citizens who welcome or are indifferent to the idea of switching sovereigns. Russia is a minimally expansionist power, in a limited setting that targets friendly populations.

Zelensky has miscalculated, badly, because none of the internationalist players involved in propping up Kiev actually care about Ukraine. If they truly did care about Ukraine, they would seek a cessation to hostilities. Instead, the direct opposite is happening, and Ukraine has become the new gold mine for the military industrial cartel.

Zelensky and his more recent predecessors have completely botched realpolitik. Instead of harnessing Ukraine’s power as a neutral buffer state, his government went all-in on becoming subservient to one coalition while antagonizing its more powerful neighbor. This has had devastating consequences for the Ukrainian people.

While Ukraine’s political class, headed by Zelensky, is happy to enrich themselves by consuming small drops from the proxy war spigot, the Ukrainian nation is being torn apart by war, and its people remain impoverished.

While it would certainly be a setback for the NATO coalition if Kiev was lost to Russia’s sphere of influence, their actions showcase that it is not something worth fighting World War III over. This concerns Zelensky, because the game would be up for him and his allies in government. Therefore, hoaxing the world into World War III is the go-to strategy for Kiev. Luckily, for now at least, no major power wants to pursue that route.

  1. I’m really tired of all the deception, including that published in [alleged] alternative media like GGI.

    Nuclear weapons have been a hoax since the beginning when their existence was first fabricated during WW2. There are many articles and videos on the topic. Here are two:

  2. GOOD Catch Lynn – – this fellow Miles Mathis takes us back to pre-quantum physics , a world of Reality / Accomplishment , not the FantasyLand of today’s theoretical physics based on mistake upon mistake / excuse upon excuse . …… …. shalom

  3. You are writing on the premise that the West doesn’t want WW3. That’s wrong. Everything that the West has done since Obama arrived is to provoke Russia. 46 bioweapons labs in Ukraine built by Obama. Nazis funded by the USA to continually shell ethnic Russians in Ukraine, 14000 dead since 2014 is genocide sponsored by the West. Steal 300 billion foreign exchange and blow up nord stream. These heinous criminal actions will ultimately come back and destroy America, which is what the elites want. Weaken Russia, destroy America… It all works for them

  4. The Third Jewish World War is coming within a month!
    Doesn’t anybody read the Bible!?
    I hope all you cowardly White Christians enjoy your Armageddon!
    It’s YOUR fault that Satan and his Jews run this planet!
    But that’s in the Bible, too! The Bible that you morons don’t read!
