From Hal Turner. Let’s pray his information is incorrect.
Based upon information which came to me discreetly via postal mail, I have concluded that World War 3 can kick-off in less than two weeks, between the dates of June 12 thru 24. The largest NATO air ‘exercise” – Air Defender 23 – takes place in that time period; may cover Ukraine “Counter-Offensive.”
As described during my Memorial Day radio show last night, my wife and son came up to the house here in Pennsylvania, from our regular home in New Jersey, this past Saturday evening. They brought with them, postal mail from my P.O. Box which has accumulated for about 3 weeks.
In that postal mail was a discreet, but large, envelope, containing what can be described as intelligence material about certain NATO planning.
I perused the material and then set about trying to verify it. But with the entire US being on Memorial Day Weekend holiday, it was very difficult reaching my contacts from my years working with the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF), during which I handled National Security Intelligence, Terrorism, and Foreign Counter-Intelligence.
As of early this morning, Tuesday, May 30, I am able to reach several contacts from my FBI years, and am further verifying the material.
Here’s what I can confirm:
NATO will commence its largest air exercise in history, called “Air Defender 2023” on June 12.
Air Defender 23 will be the most significant military exercise ever carried out in European skies. The event will involve the air forces of 25 nations.
More specifically, Air Defender 23 will represent the most extensive deployment exercise of air forces in the history of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, commonly known as NATO. The unprecedented event will involve up to 10,000 exercise participants who will train their flying skills with approximately 220 aircraft. The military exercise will take place in European airspace and under the command of the German Air Force, or Luftwaffe.
By creating this joint exercise, Air Defender 23 aims to enhance and optimize cooperation among NATO forces and show the alliance’s strength. But what exactly are the skills that Air Defender 23 intends its participants to train?
The 25 participating nations plan to investigate how their respective air forces would react and cooperate in case of a military crisis. Mainly, Air Defender 23 will be an opportunity to assess the participants’ joint airborne response to a hypothetical emergency. In this context, Germany will act as a collective defense hub for European airspace.
The 25 participating nations include Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States, and Greece.
Air Defender 23 will see the arrival of 23 different aircraft types, including the F-35 of the Americans and Dutch, a NATO AWACS reconnaissance aircraft, and, for the first time ever, a Japanese Air Force transport aircraft. Of the 220 aircraft involved, 100 alone will be arriving from 35 states in the US. Those US aircraft constitute the largest deployment of Air National Guard aircraft since Operation Desert Storm in Iraq back in 1991.
(HT REMARK: Not to put too fine a point on it, but one does not move that many aircraft, from that many countries, halfway around the world – and just outside an ongoing conflict zone in Ukraine – just to have an “exercise.”)
NATO “Exercise” Covering for Real Attack
Readers may recall that another NATO Exercise “BaltOps-2022” was used as cover to plant explosives on the NordStream 2 gas pipelines. This was revealed by Investigative Journalist Seymour Hersh who showed the Biden regime planned the Nordstream bombing attack in the White House, deployed specialized Navy Divers from a team outside the investigative purview of Congress, to plant explosives that could be activated by special tones emitted from a sonar buoy. Three months or so after the BaltOps-22 exercise, Hersh reported, a Norwegian air force plane was sent to air-drop the special tone-emitting sonar buoy, which detonated the underwater explosives, destroying much of the Nordtream 2 pipeline.
So NATO using an “exercise” to cover for an actual military operation, is nothing new, and still fresh in most people’s minds.
Fast-forward to today, and NATO is planning its largest air strike exercise in history. It is doing so just outside the Ukraine-Russia conflict zone. Gee, what a coincidence!
NATO supports Ukraine and has been supplying Ukraine with massive amounts of money and military weaponry/ammunition.
None of it has succeeded in turning the tide in Ukraine’s favor; Russia is winning, slowly-but-surely. In fact, Ukraine is LOSING so badly, their own troops have begun SHOOTING OFFICERS IN THE HEAD rather than engage in battle. That story, with horrifying graphic video of a Ukraine Battalion Commander shot in the head by his own men, is HERE
Now, the NATO countries have given almost all they can give to Ukraine, and yet Ukraine is still losing.
So NATO is coming to an inflection point: Either they admit they cannot help Ukraine defeat Russia, or . . . .
They come into the war on the side of Ukraine.
THAT, is what the postal mail material I received on Saturday, seems to indicate.
The only chance Ukraine has of turning the tide, and the ONLY chance NATO has of saving face after all its help to Ukraine failed, is for NATO to come into the conflict directly.
But there’s a problem: Russia has not attacked NATO. Moreover, Ukraine is not a member of NATO.
So in order for NATO to come into the conflict, there has to be some action or event, that would “justify” NATO entering the fight.
CREATING AN INCIDENT
For months, the world has been hearing about the coming “Ukraine Counter-Offensive.” It’s been repeatedly stated that Ukraine is going to launch some blistering effort, to repel Russia out of Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson, and Zaporozhye Oblasts (states) which voted to secede from Ukraine and join Russia, and to regain control over Crimea, which seceded by vote in the year 2014.
Of late, mass-media in the West is also reporting that the U.S., through NATO, is working on giving fourth generation F-16 Fighter Jets to Ukraine and training Ukrainian pilots to operate those jets. Sadly for Ukraine, training a fighter pilot is not done quickly. It take upwards of a year.
Even worse, I reported (HERE) that the U.S. is not only pushing its NATO allies to donate F-16’s but the U.S. is also insisting the planes be of the type with special modifications, enabling those planes to carry U.S. B-61 free-fall, nuclear bombs, and Ukrainian pilots be trained in using them!
This demand by the US has been met with strong opposition from a number of NATO allies.
However, the material sent to me via postal mail, indicates NATO plans to create an incident wherein they can justify NATO entry into the war, and use the coming “Ukrainian Counter-Offensive” as the means to do just that.
The papers mailed to me indicate the following scenarios are in-planning:
1) Ukraine grants NATO permission to enter its air space to establish a nationwide no-fly zone. NATO agrees and enters.
2) Russia has already warned it will engage and destroy such foreign aircraft. Russia then does what it says it would do, NATO screams it has been “attacked by Russia” and it’s on like Donkey Kong.
The papers mailed to me also include other scenarios:
A) “Ukrainian F-16’s” enter the fight and launch attacks into actual Russia. Belgorad is the likely attack zone. But since there are no qualified Ukrainian Pilots, the planes will be piloted by British and American pilots.
B) Russia shoots down the planes either in Ukraine or inside Russia.
C) When the pilots are either captured alive, or killed in the fight, their bodies will prove they were British and American.
D) Russia declares they have been attacked by the US and NATO and declare war upon us. Again, it’s on like Donkey Kong.
Includes both Scenario “A” and Scenario “B” above.
i) NATO is granted permission to enter Ukrainian air space to set up no-fly zone and NATO enters.
ii) Ukrainian F-16’s enter Russia and attack.
iii) NATO planes warn incoming Russian defenders they cannot attack the Ukrainian planes or they will be hit by some 200 NATO planes.
iv) Russia tells both Ukraine and NATO what’s what, and commences hitting all of them. It’s on like Donkey Kong.
In support of this intel received via postal mail, I can also report the USS Gerald R. Ford made a port call to Oslo, Norway last week, spending four days in port. It is shown entering Oslo harbor in the photo below:
The USS Gerald Ford is the largest warship in the world, and carries upwards of 90 aircraft for battle.
It even has small in-flight refueling tankers.
It’s squadrons of fighter jets can take off, be refueled in-flight, enter northwestern Russia to launch attacks, and return to the aircraft carrier.
So Russia would be faced with intense air battles in Ukraine, intense air strikes into Belgorad, and other air strikes in northwestern Russia from fighters on the USS Gerald Ford, while US aircraft carriers in the Pacific, sail from Japan and perhaps launch additional attacks against far eastern Russia, from the Pacific Ocean.
The intel I received by mail claims this massive series of strikes would immediately overwhelm Russia’s conventional forces, but it says that NATO concludes this would compel Russia to sue for peace.
I say that conclusion is flat-out wrong.
I say such an overwhelming attack, would compel Russia to use nuclear weapons because the survival of their country is at stake.
I say, if Russia has to resort to nukes, it won’t be some small, tactical nukes on a battlefield. I say they are far more likely to make large, strategic launches, against western decision-making centers, which is precisely what Russia warned it would do if the West interfered with Russia’s Ukrainian operations.
Of course, I can say anything i want, but I don’t speak for Russia . . . or for any other country. I am just applying what I know to the situation, and making an intelligence assessment based upon the information I have.
For what it’s worth, I am going on record with this article saying that the time window of June 12-24 is the period when the outbreak of World War 3 seems almost unavoidable.
If this takes place — and it may not —- I suspect we in the west would be hit with nukes very early in the conflict.
The one variable that I cannot factor-in, is if Russia is able to thwart a potential Ukraine Counter-offensive, using missile strikes which take out Weapons Depots needed for such a Counter-Offensive.
If Russia is able to wipe out a large portion of the few weapons Ukraine has left, then undertaking the scenarios above would be utterly futile for NATO unless . . . . unless . . . . this whole Ukraine conflict was set-up to pave the way for a war against Russia anyway . . . and whatever happens in and to Ukraine has never mattered.
If THAT is the case, then it seems to be June 12-23 is the date range for the actual start of World War 3.
I earnestly hope you and your family have emergency food, water, medicine, a generator for electric, fuel for your generator and for your cars, portable communications gear like a CB radio for each car and for your house, and a shortwave radio at home so you can get news from around the world, and a plan to “bug-out” if the nukes start flying.
If the intel I received by mail is accurate — and I think it is — then you have about two weeks left to plan, stock-up, and pray.
Get right with God.
