QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; You have stated that August is the season of war. Can you explain a bit more than just that. I am sure you have before. But I am new to the blog.
ANSWER: The majority of wars have begun in the Spring and Summer with August being the danger zone. The War of the Roses began on May 22nd, 1455, which was one of the earliest. The 100 years war really began on June 24th, 1340. But as we bottomed in global climate during the 1700s, this cycle tended to shift the wars to later summer. The American and French revolutions technically began in July. However, it was the Insurrection of August 10th, 1792 that was one of the real defining events in the history of the French Revolution since the monarchy fell 6 weeks later. If we look at World War I, that began on July 28th, 1914 and World War II began on September 1st, 1939. The Vietnam war and the Tonkin Gulf incident was August 1st, 2014. The Gulf War (first invasion) took place on August 2nd, 1990. The Iraq War (second invasion) began on March 20th, 2003 but this was clearly a monetary war game set in motion by Dick Cheney and appears clearly out of sync historically with conflicts, which is why it appears to be orchestrated.
We are in the danger zone this month for armed conflict. The cycle turned up in 2014. Ever since we have seen a rising international arms race created by Obama and a rising trend of civil unrest and terrorism. We have Iran and North Korea in a mad rush to enter the nuclear weapons game. So yes. Beware of the month of August. Statistically speaking, it tends to the be favored season for war events.
