The Third World War Starts In The USA And Will Enter History As The Steel And Aluminum War

The recent taxes on steel and aluminum imposed by the USA on the European Union and China have huge geopolitical and economic stakes. Practically, these measures are part of Washington’s new strategy concerning economic or commercial warfare.

The European Union contested these measures, considering them protectionist measures and threatening with counter measures.

We can see every day that the world economy is on a downhill slope, as specialists in intelligence and defense economics expect an economic crisis in Europe as well as in the USA towards the end of this year, a crisis which can not be overcome but via an outright global scale war.

According to a secret report, partially confirmed by the US Census Bureau, the Obama administration left America a commercial deficit of 83%, practically 796 billion USD. According to estimates, Beijing and Brussels hold together the economic supremacy, owning 527 billion USD, and 414 billion USD, respectively, in gas and energy, while the US budget totals 1.54 trillion dollars.

China and the European Union are net importers of oil and gas. The 8.3 million daily imported barrels represent 70% of Chinese oil, while the 8.8 billion cubic meters of gas represent 39% of Chinese consumption.

According to analyses carried out by specialized structures in Washington, a war against Iran would not suffice to stabilize the US economy. According to data centralized by the US Bureau of Economic Analysis, US oil, natural gas, NGL (natural gas liquids), and coal exports amount to only 45 billion USD annually in the most recent commercial years (2016 and 2017).

For that reason, what is at stake for the USA is not the oil and natural gas needed for internal consumption, but the possibility of destabilizing the European Union and the Far East, both dependent on Iranian oil.

What few people know is that aluminum ans steel are massively used by the American defense industry, as the Department of Defense is a large consumer of both metals. Access to these metals is critical for the production of American defense systems. This leads us to consider the industrial military complex and the Pentagon’s war plans, as well as the necessity of laying out a collective war  scenario involving the USA’s economic enemies: China and the European Union.


The nomination of Bolton coincided with the transfer of decision concerning aluminum and steel tariffs from the economic field to the field of national security, and evaluated as such.

By the means of this transfer, the war intentions relating to the necessity of developing the defense industry, as well as to pressure from China in the steel field (which, according to the same secret report, would affect US economy), are acknowledged.

It is clear: the USA are in an economic war with China. The European Union is targeted as well.

Specialists in the Pentagon and Washington are still evaluating the economic impact on the European Union and Asia of a war against Iran. America would be the only winner of such a conflict.

Moreover, the Trump administration nominated for the Department of State the former CIA director, Mike Pompeo, precisely because of the need for secrecy concerning information about the US economy and the war against Islam and China, as the Trump administration is looking for a way to obscure via counter propaganda measures the statements of the former White House strategist, Steve Bannon.

It is equally interesting that on the 2018 agenda of the USA’s Council on Foreign Relations is to be found the scenario of a NATO–Russia conflict, as many conflict scenarios of this Council were confirmed, such as the one between Turkey and the Kurds. The security agenda of the White House strangely coincides with the agenda of the Council on Foreign Relations, seen as being on the Democrats’ side.

How would this affect Romania?

The North Stream II Project or the Intermarium Project are basically one and the same thing. It envisions an extended natural gas network comprising transit countries such as Romania, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Lithuania, Latvia, Bulgaria, Hungary, Greece, and Ukraine, the latter one using the project in its economic war with Russia.

Intermarium is a economic cooperation concept, having geopolitical value, involving the countries around 3 seas: the Baltic Sea, the Black Sea, and the Adriatic Sea. It is called, in intelligence analyses, “the American resistance box in the European Union”.

The Romanian President Klaus Iohannis will take part in a new meeting concerning Intermarium this summer.

A conflict with Russia is possible for economic reasons, but we are under NATO protection and we need to act diplomatically until summer for economic and security reasons, while coordinating our actions with Washington’s.
