Martin Armstrong Warns Of War In September: "We Must Be On Guard..."

You may have thought that tensions with North Korea were abating following Kim Jong Un’s missile test stand-down earlier this month.

But as we and others outside of the mainstream media propaganda machine warned, absolutely nothing has been resolved between the United States and the rogue nation.

The only proof you need is the fact that Kim just recently launched a missile directly over Japan and is now threatening a new nuclear weapons test to take place some time in the next two weeks.

As noted earlier today, both sides are preparing for the next level of escalation at this very moment, with President Trump continuing to shift military assets into the region. Moreover, Russia has been deploying troops to the Baltic states for “military exercises,” but from a strategic standpoint one can only conclude they are massing troops just in case hostilities break out.

According to cyclical forecaster Martin Armstrong, who has accurately predicted global crisis scenarios since the 1970’s, September may well be the month that propels the world into its next great conflict:

Our models seem to be right on target for the escalation of military threats from North Korea. We gave our two targets for the opening of  this window for a conflict on our war model with North Korea  to watch were August 12/13, 2017 and September 11/12, 2017. We must be on guard for this is the prime period where a confrontation could emerge.



We expect tensions to rise into the next target September 11/12th.



Armstrong’s cyclical war model forecasts echo a similar sentiment from Brandon Smith of, who himself has been quite accurate with his predictions about everything from political election results to Federal Reserve policy decisions. In a recent analysis, while everyone was ignoring the continuing North Korean threat, Smith warned that conflict seems inevitable:

The mainstream media has instead been going out of its way to downplay any chance that the current inflamed rhetoric on both sides of the Pacific is anything other than bluster that will end with a whimper rather than bomb blasts. This is one of the reasons why I think war is imminent; the media is a notorious contrarian indicator. Whatever they predict is usually the opposite of what comes true (just look at Brexit and the election of Donald Trump, for starters).  Another generalization that is a sure bet is that the mainstream media usually lies, or at the very least, they are mostly wrong.


That said, if we are to believe the latest polls, unfortunately, one thing is clear: The American people, on both sides of the political spectrum, are becoming more galvanized around supporting a potential conflict with North Korea. For the establishment, war is a winning sell, at least for now.

His full assessment, Korean War Part II: Why It’s Probably Going To Happen, is worthy of a read as it explains the many facets behind why war appears to be inevitable.

One of those facets, as noted by Zero Hedge on Tuesday, is that both China and Russia now appear to have given up on a peaceful resolution on the peninsula:

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Ryabkov told reporters that while we can expect new sanctions pressure on the DPRK after the last launch, such pressure is exhausted..

“Judging by how colleges from the US and other countries acted in similar situations, the US allies – of course, we can expect new steps towards strengthening the sanctions regime,” he said.


“But it will not solve the problems, it is already obvious that the resource of sanctions pressure on the DPRK has been exhausted.”


“It is no longer possible to adopt resolutions in the UN Security Council that do not contain a clear indication that there can not be a military solution to the problem, but only a political one. A provision that would rule out additional unilateral sanctions beyond those that are collectively taken by the UN Security Council, “the Russian diplomat continued.

Either way, it appears Russia and China are pushing back to Trump to ‘do something’.

In short, the Russians and Chinese have now put the ball in President Trump’s court.

Martin Armstrong’s forecast, coupled with a flurry of missile tests, nuclear tests, combative rhetoric, and military deployments to the region, suggest that war – complete with a nuclear exchange – may be much closer than we think.

What happened to the "computer model that is self-aware" date of 2015.75?

'Nuff said.  Armstrong is FOS.

Armstrong making yet another a dire prediction jives perfectly with my Boston Trade and Industrial economics model.

Our motto at BTI Economics: "You gonna pay for that?"

IsraHell WILL DO another 9/11, and then BANG.

I’m making over $7k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. This is what I do…

Hey ignatius, this sounds intresting. Is it possible to get more information about the Boston Trade and Industrial economics model? Would be great! Thanks a lot. Marc

that was just a turning point. Still in play for years to come

So basically, when the GIANT METEOR annihilates the earth, or the sun explodes into a RED GIANT & engulfs the entire inner solar system, we can still look back on that date & say.


'Yup, that was it, 2015.75, THAT indeed was the turning point'

We still probably do not have any idea what the elites and their puppet Oblamer did during that time.  Nor do we know what the Chinese and Russians might have kicked off then, or do we with all the dedollarization that has been going on?

What a team. When have Martin and Brando been right about anything???

Caveat. Predicting things after they happen doesn't cut it.

Oh, but the article itself was written by Mac Slavo for his shtf website.  Add Michael Snyder and it's a poor man's doom-porn The Fappening.  Or a Masturbators' Anonymous meeting.

Scheduled?  When, what time?  I've got a large event that day, wonder if I should bother finishing up the prep work on it.

Eisenhower commented that war is a horror and anyone who failed to avoid one when possible was a black mark on humanity...We have had a few of those lately.

I expect a nuclear test from nk.   If they do it,  we will back down. If they don't, they are toast.   It's really about the validity of their nuclear weapons.    If it's real, they have just shown their ability to kill 100 million people, with ballistics over Japan.  And coupled with our..   cough cough, I mean Japan's INABILITY to intercept.  Star wars was a lie, as is any ballistics defense.   Nk just proved it.  So it really comes down to nuclear deterrent.

WW2 started on Sept. 1st.

Isn't that the same day the US State Department ban on US citizens visit NK starts?

I saw some of the idiots visiting North Korea. They better hope they don't come back as a zombie like that one tourist.

Yep. Two Russian banks forced off Swift banking, was it yesterday.

Not very friendly.

It should be absolutely breath taking in 4K. That and the miniturized hd cameras on the weapons. We should be able to to see their last facial expressions right before impact.

Another day to get ready.

They made an enormous amount of money from WWII.

Seems to me that the NK dictatorship wants war with America and UN. They keep pushing the UN/U.S.A. jump buttons. Maybe next button they will get their wish.

Gonna be a lot of broken windows in Seoul if that happens.

Sorry to say, but the USSA is the real rogue nation, literally everywhere on the planet. North Korea doesn't even remotely come close to the death and destruction that the USSA causes around the world. The quote from the article - "...between the United States and the rogue nation" is pure propaganda. The author should be ashamed.

Yes, perhaps if the United States government and its 'leaders' worried more about their own backyard rather than that of everyone else, the world (and US) would not be in the mess it currently is. But, unfortunately, this is what empires do. If it wasnt the US sowing chaos across the globe it might be some other empire seeking hegemony...

Oh, I finally get it. We need to be the worlds hegemon because if we dont, someone else will.  And all this time,  I just thought it was the MIC and Banksters doing business.


skbull44's picture

I'd prefer no empires seeking hegemony, it's just a historical fact. The MIC and banksters feed the chaos that the current empires make in their hegemonic aspirations.

What is the US supposed to do? Sit around with our thumbs up our butts until Lil Kimmy actually hits something?

Ryan Langemeyer's picture

Lil Kimmy has no intention of actually hitting something. He is all theater, all of the time, and he has Trump wrapped around his lil finger.

The dead don't care......

But I suspect that the NK fat guy with the wtf haircut is playing a long game with the UN ship of fools!

Much like the current criminal game:

I attacked you. You shot me! Now I sue you for damages.....

Followed by an asshat jury of peers who award the big bucks...

Now you can rebuild your country!

Agression is often over analyzed. It's rape & theft & torture. Same as it ever was!

Fire up the Dragon! While the ally's are still discussing strategy!

We are dead!

What difference does it HRC cries...

Just gonna make that friggin iPhone more expensive!

Give or take a few million sheeple!!!!

And the dead don't care.....

why not do your homework and look into the false flag operation instigated and planned by MacArthur in 1950 and youll understand how the Korean people react when millions were murdered for nothing

We could treat them with some respect. Now that they are a nuclear power, it might be a good time to start

Lynn Trainor's picture

If you have read about what a vile human being that Kim is, can't imagine having real respect for him.

One thing the US could do is stop running massive annual war

exercises with South Korea, practising /pretending they are destroying North Korea. China, Russia and the Norks have repeatedly asked the US to stop with the provocations. But the US carries on anyhow. Obviously, this pisses off the Norks and so they are responding. So who is the rogue nation again?

Looming War Games Alarm North Korea, but May Be a Bargaining Chip
