Bishop Guy Leven-Torres has commented here frequently in the past, but this is his first guest-essay for Gates of Vienna.
World War 3 started in 2001 with the attack on the Twin Towers

I left this comment on YouTube on 2nd January:
The New Ottoman Imperium is trying to form. We live in a truly multipolar world. Then there is the Beltway involving Russia and China but also Iran. The Iranian regime is actually quite weak and it would not take much to push it over. They will make a limited strike against the USA to save face in the eyes of Hezbollah. My question is: Where is the EU in all this? Europe looks weak and fit for client status (dhimmi) of this possible new power, now in process of forming. Russia will not risk a war at present with USA. The EU is a wet soggy paper tiger with huge a Moslem population. Iran will conduct a campaign of asymmetric warfare using its jihadi colonists in Germany, France, Holland and possibly the UK.
There will be a huge increase in illegal migration from Islam, a surge already threatened by Erdogan. Our “Useful Idiot” multiculturalists have become trapped by their own fixations and goals. If they had any sense they would cease Moslem migration forthwith. The EU has made the same mistake as Stalin did with the wooing of Hitler and the 1938 Molotov-Ribbentrop pact…
I will use this comment now to expand my paradigm of what I think is underway. Nobody can be 100% correct, but the method of modelling I have used in past theories and analysis has worked well.
The Romans were past masters of the strategy of Divide and Rule. They controlled an Empire from Southern Scotland to the Persian Gulf. They were above all else pragmatists and saw no shame or contradiction in bribing aggressive German tribes, to assuage their invasive ambitions to enter the Imperium. Often this was done to buy time before sending in the Legions to finish the job. Edward Luttwak described the Roman system as an “Economy of Force” that utilised the seeming invincibility of the Roman legions to come back from the brink and strike at the heart of the enemy with terror of gladius and scutum. In these affairs reputation is all.
It is truly amazing how the Romans controlled such a large part of the known world with but 28 legions and an almost equal number of lightly armed auxiliary troops. Tiberius was one particular master of the Great Game, as was his predecessor Augustus. Both realised that Roman arms could not take or control the known globe, despite having immense reserves, as seen in its seeming ability to create and rearm its forces after disasters such as Cannae in 216BC, and even the destruction of three crack legions under Varus in the year 12AD on the Rhine. Each time Rome rallied and re-established its hegemony.
Rome suffered when hotheads and over-ambition took hold of less experienced minds. What we see today is the result of over-ambition and ridiculous ideas of exceptionalism spouted by the likes of Globalist Neocons like former President Obama and his predecessors.
Donald Trump is very different from any of these earlier leaders, and this is why they seek to depose him by all and every means. It is Hillary Clinton and Barrack Obama’s exceptionalism that has led directly to the current impasse and situation. The void they created by weakening the US military, combined with foolish military cuts across the West and the wholesale dilution of the West’s culture and morality by cultural Marxist ideology, has led to the emergence of a new “Wannabe” Caliph in the form of the Islamist Erdogan, now seeking to extend his sway across the Inner Sea or Mediterranean into Libya. I feel he has over-extended himself, and in a while he will find it difficult to maintain power in Turkey, let alone Libya.
Erdogan is a blusterer, and like the Mullahs in Iran, his actions are designed to preserve his hold on Turkey, or in Iran, in the case of the Mullahs currently fulminating against Trump — who in truth has struck at Iran by killing its murderous Commander of the Revolutionary Guard, Qasem Soleimani, after the regime, relying on perceived US weakness and appeasement by Washington and Europe, continued to taunt the West to appear to the Moslem world as the new global imperium — all of it nought but bluster and ambitus — hyped up emotive screeching and the show of large masses of Moslems from across the Near East screaming and rioting for blood and revenge.
While I don’t dismiss the probable Moslem response entirely, I think Trump’s act was correct and well-measured. The fact that the ghastly Warren and Pelosi are accusing Trump of overstepping the mark should inform the reader of the truth. These two and the Clintons seriously misjudged the situation in their crazy schemes of regime ‘change’ under the “American Century Plan” that is now blown away by the winds of reality.
Iran will probably wage a limited form of terrorist attacks across the West, but a full blown strategic war as in the previous century is not on the cards for now. If Iran overreacts, then that may change, but I do not believe the Russians or Chinese will risk their populations, nor their own political regimes for the sake of Moslems who have been a thorn in their side for aeons.
The difference will be seen in Europe, in a continent already in thrall to over-ambitious and arrogant despots in Turkey and Iran, simply because they have foolishly imported millions of illiterate Mohammedan colonists who bring their attitudes and cultures with them, and directly threaten the remains of the former nations of Europe.
This could be a real threat if Erdogan were to act in the way the German barbarians did with Rome in the Later Empire. If our ‘leaders’ had any courage and moral fibre they would immediately halt all migration from the Moslem world, with severe penalties for those who aid and abet it or enter Europe illegally. A tough stance must also be taken with those “Do-Gooders” who demand open borders and endless immigration.
Severe legal penalties and sanctions must be applied in these cases, including capital punishment for severe malefactors and internment of those convicted of supporting these mass importations. It is either our own survival or theirs.
Trump has reasserted US power and respect on the global stage. Appeasement is over. Like the Romans, he understands power and how to use it, so ensuring the enemies of Western civilisation learn once again not to trifle with Western arms. Trump now needs to build up a myth of seeming invincibility, as did the Romans in days of yore under the Pax Romana. Like Rome did, too, on occasion, America forgot to support the Pax Americana and has paid an awful price. Iran would not dare to take on Western might directly, but like the German barbarians will deploy a form of ‘hit and run’ terror raids to hit back. The Americans, like the Romans, must maintain their modern legions, and Boris Johnson must do the same once we are free of the madhouse of the dhimmi EU.
