Indications that the U.S. Is Planning a Nuclear Attack Against Russia

Preface by Washington’s Blog:  Daniel Estulin is saying the same thing.

By Eric Zuesse:

On Wednesday, June 11th, CNN headlined “U.S. Sends B-2 Stealth Bombers to Europe,” and reported that “they arrived in Europe this week for training.” Wikipedia notes that B-2s were “originally designed primarily as a nuclear bomber,” and that “The B-2 is the only aircraft that can carry large air-to-surface standoff weapons in a stealth configuration.”

In other words, the primary advantage of the newer, “Stealth,” version of B-2, is its first-strike (or surprise-attack) nuclear capability. That’s the upgrade: the weapon’s ability to sneak upon the target-country and destroy it before it has a chance to fire off any of its own nuclear weapons in response to that “first-strike” attack. The advantage of Stealth is creating and stationing a nuclear arsenal for the purpose of winning a nuclear war, instead of for the goal of having continued peace via “Mutually Assured Destruction,” or MAD.

Some historical background is necessary here, so that a reader can understand why this is happening — the switch to an objective of actually winning a nuclear war (as opposed to deterring one). One cannot understand what’s happening now in Ukraine without knowing this bigger picture.

(This account is written under the assumption that the reader already knows some of the allegations it contains, but not all of them, and that the reader will click on the link wherever a given allegation requires documentation and support.)

I have previously reported about “How and Why the U.S. Has Re-Started the Cold War (The Backstory that Precipitated Ukraine’s Civil War),” and, “Do We Really Need to Re-Start the Cold War?” I pointed out there that we don’t really need to re-start the Cold War, at all, since communism (against which the Cold War was, at least allegedly, fought) clearly lost to capitalism (we actually won the Cold War, and peacefully) but that America’s aristocracy very much does need to re-start a war with Russia — and why it does. (It has to do with maintaining the dollar as the world’s reserve currency, something that benefits America’s aristocrats enormously.)

Consequently, for example, a recent CNN Poll has found that Americans’ fear of Russia has soared within just the past two years. Our news media present a type of news “reporting” that places Russia’s leader, Vladimir Putin, into a very bad light, even when it’s unjustified by the facts.

The situation now is thus rather similar to that right before World War I, when the aristocracy in America decided that a pretext had to be created for our going to war against Germany. That War had already started in Europe on 28 July 1914, and President Wilson wanted to keep the U.S. out of it, but we ultimately joined it on the side of J.P. Morgan and Company. This was documented in detail in an important 1985 book, Britain, America and the Sinews of War, 1914-1918, which was well summarized in Business History Review, by noting that: “J.P. Morgan & Co. served as Britain’s financial and purchasing agent, and the author makes especially good use of the Morgan Grenfell & Co. papers in London to probe that relationship. Expanding British demand for U.S. dollars to pay for North American imports made the politics of foreign exchange absolutely central to Anglo-American relations. How to manage those politics became the chief preoccupation of Her Majesty’s representatives in the United States,” and most especially of Britain’s financial and purchasing agent in the U.S.

In 1917, after almost two years of heavy anti-German propaganda in the U.S. press that built an overwhelming public support for our joining that war against Germany, Congress found that, in March 1915, “J.P. Morgan interests had bought 25 of America’s leading newspapers, and inserted their own editors, in order to control the media” so that we’d join the war on England’s side. Whereas back then, it was Germany’s leader who was being goaded into providing a pretext for us to declare war against his country, this time it’s Russia’s leader (Putin) who is being demonized and goaded into providing such a pretext, though Putin (unlike Germany’s Kaiser) has thus far refrained from providing the pretext that Obama constantly warns us that he will (a Russian invasion of Ukraine). Consequently, Obama’s people are stepping up the pressure upon Putin by bombing the areas of neighboring Ukraine where Russian speakers live, who have family across the border inside Russia itself. Just a few more weeks of this, and Putin’s public support inside Russia could palpably erode if Putin simply lets the slaughter proceed without his sending troops in to defend them and to fight back against Kiev’s (Washington’s surrogate’s) bombing-campaign. This would provide the pretext that Obama has been warning about.

I also have reported on “Why Ukraine’s Civil War Is of Global Historical Importance.” The article argued that “This civil war is of massive historical importance, because it re-starts the global Cold War, this time no longer under the fig-leaf rationalization of an ideological battle between ‘capitalism’ versus ‘communism,’ but instead more raw, as a struggle between, on the one hand, the U.S. and West European aristocracies; and, on the other hand, the newly emerging aristocracies of Russia and of China.” The conflict’s origin, as recounted there, was told in its highest detail in an article in the scholarly journal Diplomatic History, about how U.S. President George H.W. Bush in 1990 fooled the Soviet Union’s leader Mikhail Gorbachev into Gorbachev’s allowing the Cold War to be ended without any assurance being given to the remaining rump country, his own Russia, that NATO and its missiles and bombers won’t expand right up to Russia’s doorstep and surround Russia with a first-strike ability to destroy Russia before Russia will even have a chance to get its own nuclear weapons into the air in order to destroy the U.S. right back in retaliation.

That old system — “Mutually Assured Destruction” or MAD, but actually very rational from the public’s perspective on both sides — is gone. The U.S. increasingly is getting nuclear primacy. Russia, surrounded by NATO nations and U.S. nuclear weapons, would be able to be wiped out before its rusty and comparatively puny military force could be mustered to respond. Whereas we are not surrounded by their weapons, they are surrounded by ours. Whereas they don’t have the ability to wipe us out before we can respond, we have the ability to wipe them out before they’ll be able to respond. This is the reason why America’s aristocracy argue that MAD is dead. An article, “Environmental Consequences of Nuclear War” was published in the December 2008 Physics Today, and it concluded that, “the indirect effects ['nuclear winter'] would likely eliminate the majority of the human population.” (It would be even worse, and far faster, than the expected harms from global warming.) However, aristocrats separate themselves from the public, and so their perspective is not necessarily the same as the public’s. The perspective that J.P. Morgan and Co. had in 1915 wasn’t the perspective that the U.S. public had back then, and it also wasn’t the perspective that our President, Woodrow Wilson, did back then, when we were a democracy. But it’s even less clear today that we are a democracy than it was in 1915. In that regard, things have only gotten worse in America.

So, President Obama is now trying to persuade EU leaders to join with him to complete this plan to replace MAD with a first-strike nuclear capability that will eliminate Russia altogether from the world stage.

As I also documented, the IMF is thoroughly supportive of this plan to remove Russia, and announced on May 1st, just a day prior to our massacre of independence-supporters in the south Ukrainian city of Odessa on May 2nd, that unless all of the independence supporters in south and eastern Ukraine can be defeated and/or killed, the IMF will pull the plug on Ukraine and force it into receivership.

Obama clearly means business here, and so the government that we have installed in Kiev is bombing throughout southeastern Ukraine, in order to convince the residents there that resistance will be futile. Part of the short-term goal here is to get Russia to absorb the losses of all of Ukraine’s unpaid debts to Russia, so that far less of Ukraine’s unpaid debts to the IMF, U.S. and E.U., will remain unpaid. It’s basically an international bankruptcy proceeding, but without an international bankruptcy court, using instead military means. It’s like creditors going to a bankrupt for repayment, and the one with the most gunmen gets paid, while the others do not. This is the reason why the IMF ordered the leaders in Kiev to put down the rebellion in Ukraine’s southeast. What’s important to the IMF is not land, it’s the Kiev government’s continued control over the assets in the rebelling part of Ukraine — assets that will be worth something in a privatization or sell-off to repay that debt. However, for Obama, what is even more important than repaid debts is the continued dominance of the U.S. dollar. Wall Street needs that.

Among other indications that the U.S. is now preparing a nuclear attack against Russia is an article on May 23rd, “U.S. Tests Advanced Missile For NATO Interceptor System,” and also a June 10th report from a website with good sources in Russian intelligence, which alleges that Ukrainian President Petro “Poroshenko secretly met with … [an] American delegation headed by the Director of … the CIA’s National Clandestine Service, Frank Archibald, which also included former CIA chief in Ukraine Jeffrey Egan, the current – Raymond Mark Davidson, Mark Buggy (CIA, Istanbul), Andrzej Derlatka, a CIA agent in the Polish intelligence Agency, and member of CIA Kevin Duffin who is working as senior Vice President of the insurance company Brower. Poroshenko and Archibald signed a paper entitled an ‘Agreement on Military Cooperation between the U.S. and Ukraine’”

Furthermore, barely a month before the CIA and State Department overthrew the previous, the pro-Russian, President of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych, the government of Netherlands decided, after 18 years of “dithering,” to allow the U.S. to arm our F-35 bombers there with nuclear weapons. And this was already after Holland’s “Parliament in November signed off on a government plan to purchase 37 F-35As to replace the Dutch air force’s aging fleet of nuclear-capable F-16s. The Netherlands is widely understood to host about two dozen U.S. B-61 gravity bombs at the Volkel air base, as part of NATO’s policy of nuclear burden-sharing.”

Moreover, Obama isn’t only beefing up our first-strike nuclear capability, but is also building something new, called “Prompt Global Strike,” to supplement that nuclear force, by means of “a precision conventional weapon strike” that, if launched against Russia from next-door Ukraine, could wipe out Russia’s nuclear weapons within just a minute or so. That might be a fallback position, for Obama, in case the EU’s leaders (other than Netherlands and perhaps one or two others) might happen to decide that they won’t participate in our planned nuclear invasion of Russia.

Certainly, Obama means business here, but the big question is whether he’ll be able to get the leaders of other “democratic” nations to go along with his first-strike plan.

The two likeliest things that can stop him, at this stage, would be either NATO’s breaking up, or else Putin’s deciding to take a political beating among his own public for simply not responding to our increasing provocations. Perhaps Putin will decide that a temporary embarrassment for him at home (for being “wimpy”) will be better, even for just himself, than the annihilation of his entire country would be. And maybe, if Obama pushes his indubitable Superpower card too hard, he’ll be even more embarrassed by this conflict than Putin will be. After all, things like this and this aren’t going to burnish Obama’s reputation in the history books, if he cares about that. But maybe he’s satisfied to be considered to have been George W. Bush II, just a far better-spoken version: a more charming liar than the original. However, if things come to a nuclear invasion, even a U.S. “victory” won’t do much more for Obama’s reputation than Bush’s “victory” in Iraq did for his. In fact, perhaps Americans will then come to feel that George W. Bush wasn’t America’s worst President, after all. Maybe the second half of the Bush-Obama Presidency will be even worse than the first.

    Just a point. Unreported in MSM and also hardly reported in Independent media, is that 9 out of 10 trading partners with Gazrom have agreed to pay them in Euros, Yuan or Rubels and NOT the dollar. This was announced in the Russian media on D Day. (read into that what you will) The countries were not listed, but we do know that Italy, German, France, UK are some of them. This is a very clear indication from Europe that they are not only moving away from the hegemony of the dollar, but it would follow that they are also moving away from US war mongering. I doubt very much if the Europeans, no matter what stance they might take on Ukraine, want another war in Europe or even on their doorstep in Russia. This would cut off their gas supplies and destroy a very healthy trade between Russia and Europe. Such destruction is not in their best interest.

    • cettel

      I have been expecting and hoping what you are saying, but I don’t have any evidence regarding it. Do you? If so, please provide the links here, to document everything that you have just alleged.

  • Franklin Beenz

    This has got to be one of the stupidest, most irresponsible pieces of nonsense ever written. There is ZERO chance that Obama would ever be involved in your insane conclusion. Absolutely ZERO.

    Nice attempt at fear-mongering, panic-mongering, mis-information, dis-information, lying, slander, malicious calumniation, so on and so forth.

    You must be on someones payroll, have some sick agenda or suffer from some pathological consciousness-based illness.

    This blog has gone from fact-based journalism to becoming a refuge for wacko crap, of which, in this day & age, there is no shortage.

    • cettel

      This is Eric Zuesse, responding:

      Franklin, do you have any other than those ad-hominem criticisms to make of this news report? Or is it simply news that you don’t want to believe?

      • Stuart Crantor

        Has someone been photographed in unflattering positions with barnyard animals by Russian spies.

      • Franklin Beenz

        You attempt to brush aside such age-old irresponsible irrational fear-mongering by raising ‘ad-hominem’ accusations.

        The fact is you are sipping too much tea of the likes of a Benjamin Fulford or a Stewart Swerdlow, et al, or any other truth searcher who has gotten lost in the labyrinth, in the matrix on their way to the truth.

        As with any of these and as with even the Old Testament, New Testament, the Koran, any other such documents, there are some truths hidden among the lies or wheat in the chaff.

        Like I said, your conclusion is absurd. Never gonna happen on Obama’s watch, even if he can’t control such dark forces who would push for what you suggest at the risk of his own life, a la the Kennedy’s, or even his family members lives. I would put money on that and so I’m willing to make you a wager. How about it Eric, will you be willing to put your hard-earned cash on the line for your conclusion or it’s much easier to irresponsibly write such nonsense?

  • Eol Awki

    Russia has made significant strides in their defence capabilities over the last decade. If I were the US Government, I would seriously consider re-thinking my position on this. It is a myth that Russia’s ICBM capability is outdated and ‘rusty’. The American military no doubt know this – and their government should take heed – as should you!

    Would YOU take the chance that there are not at least one Russian nuclear submarine off the coast of America loaded with their new subs equipped with 16 Bulava class missiles (more than enough of themselves to take out America), or mobile & fixed land-based TOPOL-Ms and the new RS-24 Yars which travels at 20+ mach and might well be able to defeat any defence thrown at it?

    You folks are crazy if you take that chance.

    • Nexusfast123

      I agree with your comments.It would be absolutely deranged to make such assumptions about what Russia can or cannot do. The US has a pitiful record of foreign military intervention. This silly article somehow ignores China and the fact that if Russia ‘goes’ China will be next. Does anyone think China would remain passive.

      Besides the stupidity even the ‘limited’ use of nukes would kill nearly all of us as it would inject millions of tons of soot into the atmosphere.

      • Eol Awki

        Absolutely – we don’t live in a vacuum. The list of environmental and economic consequences are simply too many to name from such an insane action.

        But then whoever said neocons were sane….

        • cettel

          that’s the point: they’re not “sane” — at least if by “sane” is meant concerned about the public’s welfare. However, perhaps they aren’t concerned about that? What if these aristocrats have their own interests and priorities, which ignore the welfare of the public? And so this is my response also to the comment by “Nexusfast123″: Why do you simply assume that the people in power care so much that “even the ‘limited’ use of nukes would kill nearly all of us as it would inject millions of tons of soot into the atmosphere”? You do (you care), and I do; but, perhaps, they don’t.
          Don’t assume. I don’t assume. I ask questions, and I challenge assumptions, especially when a President or other person in power has a record of lying about important matters, as Barack Obama does. Clearly, he was telling the truth to Wall Street’s CEOs on 27 March 2009 inside the White House in his secret meeting with them that leaked, when he said he’d protect them and “My administration is the only thing between you and the pitchforks.” His contempt of the public (“pitchforks”) there is accepted by you; not by me. I question.

          • cettel

            PS: I urge readers to click on the links wherever a question about the credibility of an allegation here arises, and to click on the links in those cited sources whenever a question about their credibility arises. I do not start with assumptions but with questions; and I expect my readers to do the same, because the matters here are too important to be left to mere assumptions, and because so many of the standard assumptions have already been proven false.

          • William Peace

            I would not consider the CFR to be a reliable source, nor wikipedia……The Russians have focused their spending into technology specifically designed to defeat the US systems…. The spending difference is insignificant when a Russian sunburn cruise missile can take out a US aircraft carrier that costs thousands of times more. Or like the case of the Russian jamming tech that rendered the USS Donald Cook little more than a barge as Russian jets performed several close prox fly byes.

          • cettel

            CFR is not a reliable source in its allegations, but its journal FOREIGN POLICY is a reliable source for indicating elite opinion in the United States. Nothing that is outside the bounds of elite opinion in the U.S. is publishable there.

          • Chris Johnson

            I think the Stealth bomber as a first strike way to win a war is an absurd concept…How will it stop Russian nuclear submarines or all missile sites from launching? it will always be MAD..

      • Robert Walther

        Billions of tons! But who’ll be counting?

    • cettel

      The problem with your “If I were the US Government, I would seriously consider re-thinking my position on this” is your underlying assumption that “the US Government” represents the U.S. public; it does not; it represents the U.S. aristocracy. They don’t much care about us; they care about being Number One; they care about dominating not just us but the entire world. Domination is their chief motivation; they are not democrats — they are fascists.

      • problembarnet

        How would blow up the world help them dominating everything? How would blow up the world “maintain the dollar as the world’s reserve currency”?

        • Alife

          It does not help ,USA will have it’s dollar fall in less than a decade and it’s Government will go against civilians, this is demoside. And it will happen. Either China will ask for it’ s money or they will go against civilians. This is true. US will fall soon.

      • Washoda Ajnin

        Well put

    • Jesse James

      Not just crazy but they are also evil just if they are even considering a nuclear first strike. There is nothing going on in the world today that warrants a first strike nuclear attack against anyone.

    • Bilwil

      I can assure you they know with in a foot, where every sub is at.

      • Robin Hood

        Subs have a tendency of moving. Fast if needed. In case of Russian ones, extremely deep and significantly stealthier than the US ones

      • John Sinclair

        I can assure you they don’t. The Russians on the other hand know where every Western sub is.

    • jafo

      The US military is at least 40 years ahead of Russia and everyone else. The US spends nearly a trillion dollars on defense yearly. Whereas, Russia spends about 60 billion yearly. In laymans terms: The US state of California has a bigger and better economy than Russia and California only accounts for 15% of total US GDP, lol. Russia and Texas are about the same size in terms of economic might and output.
      Back to US weapons: The USA has a top secret project called HARP and other top secret projects. Hence, what about that Space Plant in space? Yep, it’s been up in space now for about a year, lol.
      It is possible to win a nuclear war and the USA could win one. Everybody knows HARP will vaporize anything up in the atmosphere and it can also control weather.
      Oh yeah, those awesome Russian ICBMs you talk about? Well, Russia is 6 out of 11. Meaning 5 misslies failed to reach their target. Yet, the USA is at 100%. Russia also doesn’t maintain their nukes and most of them probably will not fire. Enjoy your dream World, kiddo. It’s obvious you live in a trailer park somewhere, commie.

      • Александр М

        Silly thoughts. Russia has the best weapons in the world. You can spend and 10 trillion per year. It does not mean anything. You can make a modern flare for $ 10 million, as does Russia. You can do the same rocket for $ 100 million, as does America. Enemies attacked Russia many times. No one has ever been able to defeat Russia. Learn the history.
        But in a nuclear war there are no winners. All die.
        Reassure your mad president. Russia peaceful country. She is not at war around the world. How America. Yugoslavia, Libya, Iraq was bombed by Russia? No. This makes America. What the American army has lost thousands of miles from home? The American government is trying to impose its democracy to other countries. And if they need this democracy? In America itself there is no freedom of speech.
        Now with Yutube removed any video of the events in Ukraine, if it is not profitable America. Fellow Americans. You must live in peace on the other side of a large puddle and do not interfere with the lives of others.
        You are the same as all. Mortals. No elected nations. Hitler believed the Germans chosen nation. What happened to him?

        BEM world!

        • 22

          Russia would fight every NATO country which all have their nuked aimed at Russia. It wouldn’t even be a fight. It would just be the whole class room throwing stones against the fat guy.

          • Александр М

            Russian nuclear missiles are aimed at all NATO countries. This shit from Russia will be enough for everyone. You are hurry to die? Those who remain alive will envy the dead.

          • 22

            US subs, all nato subs, all nukes off nato, all nukes of all countries in the world except a few allies of russia are aimed at you and your city. (lol) before you even launch one of those old crap malfunctioning nukes of yours russia will be a hole so big and dakr you can’t even see it. 15 minutes and your country is gone

          • Vladifyouprefer

            Amigo, I read you comments and coming to a conclusion you are f…ing retarded. I figured you read a few articles here and there but like Russian’s say “you heard the sound but you have no idea where it comes from”. In Europe there are only 2 powers that Russia looks at as somewhat a threat – UK and France – all others are pshh, nothing. Now, back to your deaf brain, all you really have to know as far as Russia concern are these four words – Topol-M, Yars, Brahmos, S-400. When one will fall on your head, you, in addition to your deaf brain, will be deaf, blind, hairless (I think you already bold, but ohh well), but perhaps more wise. Ohh, have I mentioned toothless? You know what word Bistro means (like fast food places)? In Europe they know this word very well. Hold your horses, don’t google it yet, I want you to learn it after WWIII.

          • John Sinclair

            I think you are thinking the right way but it was the USA that defeated the USA in 911 and the debacle that has followed, everything she touches turns to poo. De-dollarisation continues apace and the USA has fewer and fewer friends around the world but of course I guess you will say you don’t need them. The USA is exceptional after all ………

          • Donald Lang

            You’d be wrong, everyone needs friends. Our alienation of foreign democracies is the single greatest failing of foreign policy since the start of the cold war.

        • Russ

          Keep dreaming, you make bigger bombs, not better, you make faster aircraft, not better. The US is light years ahead of you in ever major military technology. And if you know your history, Russia would have fallen to Hitler if we had come and saved your ass, we gave you plane, trucks and most important food, otherwise you all would have starved. The US will never drop the first nuke, but we will drop the last.

          • Александр М

            You gave
            planes, trucks? The Soviet Union paid in gold for it all. America had nothing
            to anybody gives just so free. Your god – money. Such nations do not exist for
            a long time. They die. Now America needs global chaos. Otherwise it kirdyk. The
            whole world hates America. She brought so much trouble. But for now afraid of
            to say so.

            Of course,
            you win all. Once come up with a gel of obesity for their soldiers. And the
            cure for cowardice. It seems to be now engaged in the Pentagon? When a Russian

        Thanks to Israel, both Russia and China have all of our Tech. And the money you are talking about is a slush fund–and since Israel now states they do not even need our military aid anymore–they most likely have infested the trillions of dollars that have gone missing over the years in the US defense budget……….and since China builds everything cheaply compared to the world–to think they won’t pose a serious threat very soon is naïve–especially since they would be working with Russia and several South and Central American nations against us if a war ever did come about……..Harper and the President of Mexico are both Vassal’s to the One Government Order–obviously if a fight broke out those two leaders would be decapitated by their own people who would be on our side….

I figured you read a few articles here and there but like Russian’s say “you heard the sound but you have no idea where it comes from”. In Europe there are only 2 powers that Russia looks at as somewhat a threat – UK and France – all others are pshh, nothing. Now, back to your deaf brain, all you really have to know as far as Russia concern are these four words – Topol-M, Yars, Brahmos, S-400. When one will fall on your head, you, in addition to your deaf brain, will be deaf, blind, hairless (I think you already bold, but ohh well), but perhaps more wise. Ohh, have I mentioned toothless? You know what word Bistro means (like fast food places)? In Europe they know this word very well. Hold your horses, don’t google it yet, I want you to learn it after WWIII.***

          Russia doesn’t have one single aircraft carrier, not a blue water fleet, nor a good airforce. They only have nukes that can destroy the planet about 10000x … pretty smart i quess for Russians. Dumb morons.

          Why you think in the Cold War the Russians did not attack? Cause they’d be wiped out in 15 minutes. Same today. Russian’s wouldn’t even notice the large Tridents, Nukes it would all be over to quick to notice.

    • mkfin

      I agree with your comments 100%, right now all were are dealing with is two parties in some country who cannot get along. Russia feels one side is being mistreated, as Ukraine bombs the heck of them. And Ukraine feels mistreated cause the people they are fighting sympathize with Russia. REALLY, we all need to slow down, take a breath, back off Russia. And start talking. Or something is going to go BOOOM, and instead of a few thousand lives, it could be millions. Don’t under estimate Russia, or Overestimate ourselves. We need to back off ASAP. And our leadership is playing a very dangerous game. They can’t even beat sheep herders in IRAQ with all their technology..

      Americans have always won when, in the crux, they assert their complete but defensible insanity.

      We now fight in ‘wars’ that have rules that only favor our adversaries. We ask permission to do what is necessary from ‘allies’, most of whom either hate us or could care less about believing in anything, much less ‘rules for war’.

      What is coming soon will be a decision to act, decisively act, by rational or delusional ‘leaders’. The change will be rapid and positive or instantaneous and devastating. The scariest part for ‘normal’ people is that exponential, technological advancement has rendered the desire and need for slaves to be unnecessary and inconvenient for the newer but inevitable class of oligarchs.

  • vkr_bibin

    I love reading articles on this site, but this a bit of hyping up. I do agree Russia is surrounded by the NATO but you go for a Nuclear strike, then it’s a war to the end. Just because Russia don’t have bases near US doesn’t mean US is protected. With submarines chains deployed all across the world , it’s just a matter of time before Russia responds to a nuclear strike against US. Also one should not forget that Russia will take out the whole of Europe also with them.

    The very fact that Obama took his foot off the pedal once Russia annexed Crimea shows that American establishment is wary of engaging Russia directly. No one can predict how it will go. And history suggests that Russians have that mentality to keep on fighting. Remember WW2, which was actually won by USSR but the credits are always claimed by US , France and UK.

      The US military is at least 40 years ahead of Russia and everyone else. The US spends nearly a trillion dollars on defense yearly. Whereas, Russia spends about 60 billion yearly. In laymans terms: The US state of California has a bigger and better economy than Russia and California only accounts for 15% of total US GDP, lol. Russia and Texas are about the same size in terms of economic might and output.
      Back to US weapons: The USA has a top secret project called HARP and other top secret projects. Hence, what about that Space Plant in space? Yep, it’s been up in space now for about a year, lol.
      It is possible to win a nuclear war and the USA could win one. Everybody knows HARP will vaporize anything up in the atmosphere and it can also control weather.
      Oh yeah, those awesome Russian ICBMs you talk about? Well, Russia is 6 out of 11. Meaning 5 misslies failed to reach their target. Yet, the USA is at 100%. Russia also doesn’t maintain their nukes and most of them probably will not fire. Enjoy your dream World, kiddo. It’s obvious you live in a trailer park somewhere, commie..

    • 22

      Why would NATO be afraid for Russia, they have 20 blue water fleets Russia has none. Even if they launch their nukes. Tens of millions of Russians would die in a matter of days if not hours. Fleets would be deployed and Russia would be turned into a hole.

          This Australian Prime Minister does not speak for the Australian people and many are very keen to throw him out.
          Let us hope we get him out very soon as he makes matters worse.

  • Charles Savoie

    There can be no doubt that the single organization that has been in control of American foreign policy since January 1903 was co-planner with its London correspondent branch of both World Wars. The failure of the UN to become a world government necessitates another World War. The repudiation of the dollar by major powers is another reason for The Pilgrims Society to jerk Obama’s strings. I have written abundantly about this organization and details are freely available. Its control over our foreign policy is hard to exaggerate. Members such as Paul Volcker, Henry Kissinger, George Shultz, James Addison Baker III, Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth II are all over the Obama White House telling him what to do next while members of subsidiary groups, especially the Council on Foreign Relations, continue to play their subordinate yet impactful roles. Yes Kerry is a Bonesman. More importantly, he’s a Pilgrims Society member and among the poorer ones with an attributed net worth of some $196 million. A likely member based in Dallas, Elliott Roosevelt Jr., recently seized $54 billion in West Texas petroleum resources. Of course no Pilgrims roster has surfaced in 34 years, as The Society is the last globalist group of financiers and warmongers in the world to remain largely in the shadows.

    • William Peace

      Mr Savoie, I appreciate your work, having read some of your articles.
      Do you believe Russia and China are operating independent and against the Pilgrims Society? Or are they more likely to be the Pilgrim’s “controlled opposition” to the west?

  • Randa

    My God, this article is so spot on in relation to what is really happening between Russia and USSA, I thank you for publishing this. Americans have absolutely no idea what is happening in Ukraine, or what has happened in Ukraine. First Stalin. Now Obama.

    They have been planning a nuclear attack on Russia for years and of course Obama just stands on his tippy toes and does what they tell him. Thing is, Russia has more nuclear warheads than all of the world combined (including USSA) so this is why Obama has to get into Ukraine and attempt to destroy them before his all-out attack against Russia. Putin’s patience has been amazing. I don’t think Russians call him wimpy for this. Honestly, the man was a gangster and look at him now. Eloquent, patient and incredibly courageous. And fairly honest from what I can tell.

    From an American perspective, I am in greater fear of Obama’s madness and obsessive lust to push the button, than anything Putin may direct at us. What if Obama chooses to have a nuclear false flag on American soil? He is not American. He doesn’t care who he murders, he just wants blood.

    • Hryhor Kovalenko

      “Americans have absolutely no idea what is happening in Ukraine, or what has happened in Ukraine. First Stalin. Now Obama.”

      The truth is: First the Czars. Next Stalin. Now Putin.

      “Randa” needs to google EMS Ukasz, Valuyev Circular, etc and learn how Russians made the use of Ukrainian in Ukraine a criminal offense. “Randa” also needs to explain Putin restrictions on the large Ukrainian speaking minority in Russia.

      • Randa

        You reckon Putin is responsible for what is currently happening in Ukraine?

    • GUEST 123

      What you are saying there is absolutely crazy and just not true at all. I am certain that it is in no ones interest to start any sort of nuclear war between whoever because everyone know that this would destroy human kind in general. If the US wanted to attack Russia, they would have done it from Turkey during the cold war.
      Also some of the facts in this article are just wrong! The US hasn’t directly bombed any places in the Ukraine. Whether the CIA is behind this Putch, I don’t know. It seems awfully similar to 1952 in Iran. But truth is, being a german I have some friends from the Ukrain and they want to become part of Europe. So that means that the seperatists, who are without a doubt, supported by russian media, and maybe even russian military, are a threat to the prevailing desire of the Ukrainian people to join the EU and the NATO.
      To come back to your point of Obama being a warmonger and of course your absolutley not fact based comparance with Stalin. Current US foreign politics are not, nor have they ever been, based on territorial gain, but solely on influence, economical, and political power( through means of military movements and actions(very oldfashioned way of imperialism)). What advantages would it hold for the US economy and their company owned state, to have economical influence on nuclear waste land?
      please before you write a comment like this, think about what you are actually saying!
      Also coming back to the article once more: I am absolutely not a supporter of US military Imperialism and the way the US has handled the middle east or other parts in latin america in the past. However, if I could chose between living in a US Influence Zone, or a Russian influence zone, I would always go for the one with at least a right of freedom of speech, freedom of sexuality and without a corrupt legal body such as Russia.

        Well, yes. Freedom fag! This is the main value. There is one problem. Ukraine fascists came to power. They overthrew the existing government by force. Now bombs and missiles kill civilians who do not want to live in one country with the Nazis. And all this is done by the hands of America, who dreamed of crept close to the borders of Russia. To establish there the missiles. How many countries had are destroyed by America? Iraq, Libya, Syria … There is now a happy life? Is no. There’s now a ruin and chaos.

        America brings misfortune for the world. All these years, America was living beyond its means. Has accumulated a huge public debt. America prints the dollars-wrappers that do not cost anything, they are not backed by gold. Now threatens America’s economic collapse. To avoid that America needs a big war that will weaken Rossiiyu and Europe. In any war is one dies and the other is enriched. As always, the bastards want to solve their problems at the expense of other people’s lives. They want to draw Russia into the war in the Ukraine. Dream that Russia introduced their troops. To do this all the time lie. Bring down a passenger plane, shelled civilians in cities. But Putin is wiser than all those bastards. Americans and Europeans get false information about the events in the Ukraine. Any true information is blocked on youtube. Your press is whole sale. Russia is 100 times more democratic country than America or Europe. Defective freaks. Look at the faces of your politicians. I puke hunting. Where they grow. This Judases. Any fair human court must judge them. For the crime against humanity. The strength of the truth. And the truth will prevail.

  • William Peace

    No…..the US will find itself more and more friendless. And they will likely be destroyed by the Russia/China axis whether they start the war or not. This article treats Putin as if he is being played here……totally ignoring the fact that he has been proving time and again to be at least several steps ahead of the western cartel.

    • cettel

      That allegation (that the article belittles Putin) is unwarranted. This article says and assumes nothing about Putin, everything about Obama. It’s all and only about Obama. Only a fool would misread it to be asserting anything at all about Putin. It does not. At its end, it tries to infer how Obama is gaming this; and I (like you) expect Obama to lose, and Obama’s hopes and expectations to be dashed in the outcome. I certainly hope that he will lose, because if he wins, then the entire world will lose; even the aristocracy that’s pushing this policy will probably lose more than they will gain by “winning” on this. But, in any case: it’s all about Obama.

  • Harold Smith

    This piece has some serious issues. First, this apparently approaching conflict obviously has nothing to do with “maintaining the dollar as the world’s reserve currency”, *per se*. That’s like saying that the war against Iraq was to protect the U.S. peasantry against Iraqi WMD. It doesn’t make sense. Let’s face it, if the USraeli Empire wasn’t squandering all its resources trying to take over the world, and wasn’t senselessly antagonizing Russia and China, the dollar wouldn’t be in nearly so much trouble in the first place, would it?

    Clearly, the conflict has to do with some “people” who seek global governance; i.e.,the madmen want to impose their Satanic “New World Order” on the whole world.

    Second, the author apparently has a completely fraudulent view of WW1. No, Woodrow Wilson didn’t “[want] to keep the U.S. out of it.” WIlson was a Jew puppet who faithfully took orders from his Masters, and that’s why the U.S. entered the war (google: Benjamin Freedman speech at the Willard Hotel).

    • Joe V

      Mr. Freedman was a courageous Jew who was willing to take the heat and tell the truth about how the US was drawn into WW1 and for what purpose. Several times I have contacted the National Holocaust Museum, The Israeli Embassy in Washington, DC and the Jewish Defense League and asked them to refute Mr. Freedman’s remarks. It’s been several years now and all of my inquiries have gone unanswered.

    Iam sorry but this article has many problem with it, it implies that the B2 are configured for or new ones have been built to accompany said weapons. Not the case, B2′s were created for one purpose and one purpose on, while it might be multiple by the means of what they can carry, they were made to carry nukes. However, they wont be stationed in Europe, they cant and from all that i know they dont have the facility that is environmentally controlled, the nearest base that does is Diego Garcia.

    Also, it would be INSANE to hit Russia with a nuclear weapon of any kind. This is utter suicide by a preemptive attack on Russia, yes they do have out dated rusty military equipment but they have nuclear weapons that can launch faster than our own. I know this, because i studied specifically the Cold War and national security. This will be a global war that will kill everyone and everything.

  • slobotnavich

    Oh, God, another utterly crackpot and vomititious conspiracy theory. Anybody who thinks this Marxist (picka) ninny in the White House would even remotely consider an attack on the former USSR, his beloved soul-mates, is a stark-raving loon. While it may indeed be true that the former USSR is beefing up its nuclear capabilities and hoping to reassert itself as major world power, the notion that Osama Amin Obama would oppose any such initiative by the Russians is utter fantasy.

  • Amanda

    What a load bovine excrement that article dumps on us. All Russia has to do is be just as mad as that mass killer and thug in the white house is, and put his nuclear forces on “respond at warning” that will ensure that not only the USA and Europe would be fried, but equally, that the world may be fried on a false warning. That is what the maniacal USA is forcing on Russia. However, let us assume that Russia is not insane enough to place their nuclear forces on that type of hair trigger readiness, what is NOT mentioned in the article, are the 100′s of thermonuclear warheads on some 60 nuclear submarines roaming the 7 seas, not to mention the nuclear weapons on their naval ships. Both of these will definitely escape a first strike by America and will respond in kind, destroying all life in the USA and eventually, the madness of the USA will destroy all life on our planet with this combined attack and retaliation……. Just who the hell gave those maniacs the right to do that? They all need to places under arrest and taken to rubber padded rooms awaiting their trials for treason and total madness.

        • Taylor

          I agree with you 100%, there is huge sinister plan behind all of this, it’s very systematic and been in place many years. Who gave them the right? I would say the real rulers of this planet did, the leaders we actually see are only their puppets. If you look at America’s actions thru Bush and Obama, and way before that even, you can see each piece of the plan has been carried out and still it being carried out. The population of the world does not matter to them at all, in fact all of their de-population talk just shows that they WANT to take us all out. This would do it, and they would be safe in their underground bunkers. American media has been systematically destroyed as part of this plan too, so that no American (except a few of us, who are just a bunch of conspiracy theorists) have even a tiny bit of a clue that any of this is going on. A lot of Americans dislike Obama now, since he starting full on destroying our constitution and suddenly became Bush II, but crazily Obama still has tons of American’s support. If they only knew, Obama would get taken out by an angry mob. So what’s up with Congress? Are they stupid, blind, corrupt, part of the plan? Does it really go that deep? Part of me wishes to be an ignorant, oblivious American again, would make life a whole lot easier than watching Obama lie thru his teeth daily. Is this really happening, how? This planet is fucked.

The US is the biggest bully to ever exist on planet earth. The US Empire has put all other empires to shame. The US Empire will only fall when humans around the planet realize that they have nothing to fear from each other, only those humans who seek power through fear. They keep you in chains with fear, the feed their bank accounts with fear. They need you to be afraid. So stop being afraid. I don’t fear terrorists, I don’t fear Russia, I don’t fear cancer, I don’t fear the left or the right. I know what the end game is.

    I don’t see why we should be hostile to Putin or Russia?
    1- Putin informed the CIA of the Chechen Muslim Boston Bombers, we said that they are against Russia not us who support these terrorist as freedom fighters.
    2- when Snowden was seeking refuge in Moscow airport, Putin said that he must stop damaging OUR American friends.
    3- when we placed missiles on his door steps in Poland, he did not threaten retaliation or wars.
    4- when we invaded Iraq, and Libya against his wishes, he did not provide covert support to the rebel or freedom fighters as we typically do.

  • Alex

    Putin should read this article and press the Red button immediately

  • Atheist Society

    The article is so dumb & poorly written, I had to stop reading. Neither the States nor Russia would attack the other. The reason is simple; each nation has a retaliatory strike ability no matter if it were attacked by steal surprise or not & attacking Russia or the States in full steal is impossible anyway but if it were possible, each nation has the ability after it has been totally destroyed above ground to carry out a full scale attack which would totally destroy the opposing nation. There are subs deep in the Seas that alone could destroy every nation on earth. There are ICBMs that can withstand a first strike then retaliate. In fact, that’s exactly what they are designed for. If Russia were to attack the States, the States would attack both Russia & China thus destroying both nations to be safe. If the States attacked Russia, just like the other way around, nothing in the States would be left standing 20 minutes later.

    There will never be a nuclear world war. There might be a few suicidal people around but no one person on either side can conduct a missile launch against the other! This means that as insane as Putin is, he cannot launch an attack on his own. Those around him who know full well there is no such thing as a god or an afterlife would not want to die. They know they are not going to a Heave with prostitutes! The same is true of the States. Those in power know full well there is no such thing as a god or afterlife. They simply pretend to believe there is to get votes, please & control the barbaric masses that need a crutch in life. Most people do not want to die. Even most religious don’t want to die & an attack on Russia, China or the States by a nuclear nation would mean the death of those in said nation! This is just a well known fact which makes this article out to be insane!

    That said, there very well could be a limited nuclear war between India & Pakistan for example or a terrorist group might one day get their hands on a nuke & use it but that would not be the end of a nation.

    Time to grow up & think about reality such as ways to get rid of religions, improve the economy, get people careers, good pay & a great life since there is but one life & it should be lived to the fullest.

  • Mark

    The actual facts are the States is TEN TIMES more powerful than Russia so people underestimate strides the States continues to make but the States keeps that low key while Russia loves to brag. America often acts as if it is always in need of funding for new tech etc when in fact is not.

    Between States and other NATO nations Russia, China, North Korean, Iran & the rest would be destroyed in a conventional four year terrible war. Each nation knows it cannot use nukes. The war is estimated to last four years if it happened with 50 million US casualties so it would be a real war but it would be the end of the Russian military & the States would prevail, go into a strong boom post war as the world’s single superpower. That would be at a terribly high cost. Russia cannot be invaded. They are very strong willed people who do not go hysterical in a war like people in the States would if we were getting hit each day. We are only using 1975 drone tech that is in the sky all the time, 80s tech in wars but they would bring out area 51 advanced tech for a world war which is said to be anti gravity so Russia would be done.

    • Observer

      Hahahaha….

  • Mark

    There will be no real war with Russia but I suspect there will soon be a proxy war because Obama is not going to leave Iran with nukes as Bush did North Korea so once the attack starts non invasion style like Gulf War one, Russia is likely to arm Iran. Iraq had no military after the first war. Each time they tried to build something, Bush Sr then later Clinton would destroy it so that war was wrong. It’s part of the reason we landed in a great recession. Iraq had zero to do with 911. Saddam was terrified of the States. Bush should have done a massive attack on North Korea instead. The war in Afghanistan was justified since the government would not hand Ladin over & the entire world supported us with NATO declaring war too. Bush attacked Iraq because he believed Saddam tried to assassinate his parents in the 90s so he attacked at a high cost to lives. He created a holocaust in Iraq anti abortion man forced women into abortions, lost limbs and or death by bombs. That being said, I supported our troops & always do because they follow orders, put their lives on the line & are underpaid no matter which party is in power.as well as treated poorly by the public when many disagree with a war so that is not fair at all. I know this because in my family, they have served going back to 1812 & before when England burned the White House down in the last time the homeland of the States was attacked by another nation. Not since then has the States been attacked by another nation. Not in WW2 or 911.

    i think your President is a little creasy, we have a many nuclear weapon too, and we have a ” dead hand”, nuclear war is a death for all people in the world, we need to stop it together! Rassians don`t want this war. Stop it please, it is very dangerous for human race.

  • Basle

    It’s hard to believe that Putin will ever agree to be ‘wimpy’. Chances are, if push comes to shove, when it is clear that everything is lost for Russia, meaning a nuclear war is within days or hours Putin will go hara-kiri launching whatever nuclear missiles he may to destroy as much of the US as he can hours or minutes before Russia been destroyed.

    MH17 Chameleon: Operation Rapid Trident II

    http://greatgameindia.com/mh17-chameleon-operation-rapid-trident-ii/

    The announcement of U.S. BREEZE and RAPID TRIDENT II military maneuvers came on May 21, 2014 by Vice President Joe Biden’s office. Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, is a newly-named director of the Ukrainian natural gas and oil company Burisma Holdings, Ltd., owned by Ihor Kolomoisky, the Ukrainian-Israeli mafia oligarch, who is known as the «Chameleon». Kolomoisky has raised his own mercenary army, complete with the BUK missiles allegedly used in the shootdown of MH-17. Kolomoisky, the Governor of Dnipropetrovsk oblast in eastern Ukraine, has threatened terrorist attacks against Russian-speaking officials in eastern Ukraine, including assassinations.

    I wish Americans would stop perpetuating this myth that the United States “won” the Cold War when it’s probably more accurate to say that that the Soviet Union defeated itself. Melvin Goodman — who would probably be in a position to know, given that he was a senior analyst and division chief of the Office of Soviet Affairs at the CIA for ten years in the 80′s — has stated that at least in his opinion, the Soviet Union rotted from within. They were engaged in an ongoing war in Afghanistan which they weren’t winning, the infrastructure was in a state of disrepair (the most obvious example being Chernobyl, the cleanup for which proved to be extremely costly), the economy was stagnating, and the Politburo was losing the faith and loyalty of the Russian people who were no longer willing to tolerate a system that was failing them on so many levels.

    What’s troubling is that when you look at a lot of these factors — an ongoing and seemingly unwinnable war, a failing infrastructure, a stagnant economy, a ruling body which no longer has the confidence and respect of its people, and growing discontent — anyone who’s not in denial has to admit that all of them apply to the United States to one extent or another at this point in time.

    Eric Zuesse is just another example what happens when surrounded by those who share and confirm your point of view, no matter how extreme. Like so many in the media (and Washington) he, and his “mentally cloned pals”, love any statement that suits their bias. This is an unfortunate as the best view points are obtained by surrounding yourself with a network of varying view points, and having relationships where opposing view points are encouraged. Like the boss surrounded by “yes men”, people like Eric are not interested in learning all sides and then formulating a knowledgeable opinion. As an example, he even finds a way to work a slam in on President Bush at the end of this ridiculous article. How did we get to the point that it is more important to be close minded and disagree with the opposing political party, then to to develop the substance needed to lead America to the best solutions? It does not show intelligence or leadership to disagree on everything. It use to be that our journalists, and political leaders, agreed on 70% of the issues and fought it out over the gray areas that truly matter. Now, they can’t even agree on the color of the sky! We continue to reward ignorant bias from journalists, the media as a whole, and of course our politicians. They are more concerned with spreading their extreme views then taking the time up front to learn from all sides. The American citizens deserve better. It is time to stop blindly following biased politicians and their equally biased supporters in the media. Remember the truth is somewhere in the middle so educate yourselves with an open mind and allow exposure to all points of view. Our goal should be to develop well rounded knowledge of the issues, formulate a educated opinion, and find the best solutions for the American People, not any single political party!

  • JasonKaler

    Nuclear bombs aren’t the only payload the B2 carries.
    In Iraq, B2s were responsible for more than 90% of all bombs dropped by weight.
    This is a big jump to conclusions.

  • REAL AMERICAN

    Americans scared of Russia? What kind of joke is that supposed to be? America isn’t scared of anybody, nor should we be. If things do end in war, then we will prevail as we always have, some corrupt communist regime doesn’t hold a candle to the greatest country on earth.

  • Robin Hood

    Agree with the logic, the drawn conclusions and most of the comments. It does however appear that one of the facets of this conundrum is missing. It would be foolish to think that Russians have not considered all these options long and hard. And one thing that is entirely not in the Russian character is to be lead to slaughter as a cow. Which by itself presents two options: (1) Soft power: sabotage American supremacy economically and politically. Provoking instability on America’s borders as well as internally while dumping Eurasia’s dependency on US dollar. A complicated task but achievable one. (2) Hard power: preemptive nuclear strike against NATO bases in Western Europe thus achieving 2 goals – destruction of ballistic missiles defense and first strike offensive weapons as well as putting things back into MAD perspective with US for denied the ability of a swift massive strike from Europe, US government will have to face the dilemma of retaliation by the means of ballistic missiles from US main land and remote bases and suffer a nuclear strike against US mainland. That would indeed make Russia’s leadership a monster but preserve Russia’s integrity as a country. Even combined, EU military capabilities are no match to Russia’s and US forces are over committed around the globe and any attempt of assembling them in a sufficient force would be a sufficient pretext for Russia to deliver a nuclear strike against us, this placing such scenario in MAD perspective as well

    Has anyone really looked at the Russian republics military strength. Just at a glane look at a US SOCOM operator beside a Russian Alpha group “Special” operator. The difference visually is only the SOPMOD they are holding and the pattern on their BDUs. Both sides training is intense and thorough. Serving in the Canadian forces, I have worked along side both. US Delta operators and generically Russian Spetznas. Whether on the ground or scaled up to battlefield tactical TNWs. Russia is not backwards and “rusty”. To saý any sane individual thinks we can just take Russia out ricky tick with a precision 1st strike, is well………………madness. As a Canadian active(though stood down) Operator, this article frankly first makes me angry and secondly makes me grateful the people that send me downrange aren’t so far removed and insane. I can tell you, its obvious you have never shouldered a weapon in any real conflict. If you had, you would have a better grasp on Gleopolitics and the capabilites of Nation States the World round.

    The States is not going to attack Russia for no reason. This was really just a warning to Russia to not dare try to invade a “NATO” nation. If Russia were to do that then Russia would be destroyed quickly. Russia is not capable of destroying the States as everyone seems to think. Neither is China. Russia might get one or two nukes in on us but Russia would be gone so they won’t be messing with a NATO protected nation.

    We should obliterate Russia now, as soon as possible. War is upon us whether we like it or not. We should root out the cancer as soon as possible and accept the chemo therapy right away. The world cannot afford to give Putin the same leeway we gave Hitler. Russians forces have already been arming for some time, given more time he will only grow stronger and bolder.
    Best take direct action NOW and kill it while it is still weak. And kill it good, the risk is simply far too great to consider morals. We would have to wage a total war and aim to exterminate E V E RY single russian; every man, woman and child. Utter obliteration.

    I would be more worried with a war with Canada or Mexico rather than with Russia. Russia is not a national power and their attempts at intimidating the rest of the world by running their mouth has played out, they are a drop in oil prices away from being a 3rd world country with a jackass for a leader!

    You guys are all silly and need to go get some sun. If America wanted to take over the world we would of after WW2 when the USA was the only one who could make nukes.

  • Lusius Quietus

    I see a lot of insane guys here. Russia can blow all her nukes on her own territory and the whole world will die. the difference. Russians will die quickly and the rest slowly. When I was a boy I watched videos of nuclear and thermonuclear tests by Soviet Army. Many people who post here nonsense about nuking Russia are very ignorant. They truly do not want to go there….

  • particle

    Some good points are made here but underlying all of this is the fact that there is no way to guarantee Russian destruction without an end to all life on earth. I do not think it should be a goal either but that’s my opinion. There is no way to neutralise this prospect even with a fully operational haarp platform. The Russians in addition to submarine launched missiles also will have many cells within nato countries. Their spies and intelligence services were often ahead of the wests during the cold war let’s not forget this. It would be reasonable to assume that some of this new tech has been infiltrated by them or by cybercrime not to mention direct guerilla ops involving dirty bombs and nuclear suitcases. During the cold war the west never knew that the soviets had filled a large ship with nuclear material in a northern port. It was a doomsday weapon. No launch required. Simply a detonation required to wipe out all life as a last resort. I live in Europe and personally feel the propaganda we are being fed needs to be reigned in. This is serious and the repercussions could be fatal. When will we all wake up and realise we are being exploited and brutalised by our own governments? One day the revolution will come and we can talk seriously about the utopian society we all deserve and are entitled to. Regrettably governments are the enemy and we won’t get it without a fight. Freedom has moved beyond ‘democracy ‘ but governments will not listen to their people.

    Notice how all your major wars are white men killing white men or white men dying for israeli interest for the sake of zionist banksters..Like Ariel Sharon said, “we the jewish people control America and the Americans know it”. Where is israels army when we get in all these wars, they are supposed to be our ally, however I havn’t seen them do shit.. The Mossad claims” by deception they make war”, and they are doing it. Wake the fuck up Americans. These wars that we have been in, in the last 100 years are not and have not been in the best interest of our country. It will be our demise!!! And please do not give me that holocaust shit, I will have to refer you to Benjamin Freedmans’ speech and you might not like it…

    All this fighting against each other and we wonder why we are where we are regarding the relationships we have between our countries. Russia against America, who has the biggest missiles, (I mean toys.) Are we all back in Kindergarten? Grow up people. We can all agree to disagree, but fighting and bickering solves nothing except more fighting and bickering. Stop puffing your chests out and beating yourselves as gorillas do when they are challenging each other and grow up. It doesn’t matter who has the biggest and baddest nukes. It doesn’t matter who blows who up first. What matters is that there’s going to be an enormous amount of innocent lives lost if these nukes are fired; lives that have absolutely nothing to do with the conflicts regarding these countries…and it’s sad. It’s sad that we are all so hell bent on destroying each other over stupid shit that really means nothing! We should be worried about our families and our friends right now, not who has the best military crap!!! Rather than fighting, maybe we, the civilian people of both countries, should be forming an alliance. Maybe we should all join hands and stand in front of both governmental powers shouting at the top of our lungs for PEACE!!! Maybe we should forgive each other and move forward and stop acting like children fighting over their toys in the playpen. You remind me of the military leaders right now. It’s no wonder they are getting ready for war, because if you were in power you’d be doing the same thing. You’re doing it right now, right here in the comments below! None of you are any better than the other, so stop ACTING like it!

    What’s made Obama’s presidency “bad” are the Republicans who chose to make their job trying to make him look him bad. With all the problems President Obama and the nation faced when he arrived in office you’d think, for the greater good, the GOP would put politics aside and get some work done. No, No and NO. They refused to have it. If the Republicans are good at anything it’s making people look bad. They are like an insecure high school bully.

    this wont happen america wont be the first to attack. America no matter how corrupt it has become and greedy it is far from stupid from attacking Russia the second nation with equal nuclear capabilities. If any nation starts a nuclear war it will be a disaster for the whole world.Sure nuclear war should be taken seriously however conflicts are progressive they start out with political conflict and finally political isolation meaning they will have little to no political discussions and when they do it will be demanding for the other nation to back down or comply with whatever the demands are. After political policies and diplomacy fails conflict might start outright or small battles will ensue leading to an escalation of power and force in the battle field. Nuclear weapons are a last resort since they have a collateral damage of 100% that will last for generations to come. Yes America did used nuclear weapons on japan however the war didnt look like it had an end to it, and japan would not surrender and the human lost was great. Japan was one of the nations that grew rapidly and i mean rapidly becoming a full power in just a few decades however it retained its old ideologies of honor and thus surrender for them was a dishonor so much that they would take their own lives if they were about to be captured. They were so relentless that they forced america to decide either continue slaughtering each other which had no end in site or go all out not only putting fear in the enemy but destroying thousands of lives in mere seconds. This was the only option because japan even though it was a power to be reckoned with had a smaller population than america so eventually it would result in genocide maybe not a complete annihilation of the Japanese people but it would destroy most of their population and who wants to be the one to blame for wiping out a whole nation. That is the only reason nuclear weapons are used is when no nation wants to surrender and the end of the war cant be estimated and the human casualties have reached an extravagant number that continuation of battle is meaningless,so they try to end it in one strike. However nuclear weapons dont just kill at the point of impact they last for generations and kill people who are close enough to the radiation and affect births as well with genetic mutations and other health problems so even though its a last resort and one that would certainly end a war it will cause way too much collateral damage to be taken lightly

    This is all just so stupid. Why can’t people just be mature and get along. Who cares who can kill who? Why do we need to kill each other in the first place. Why do we need to compare cock size to determine who is more powerful? We are all people. At the end of the day we are all the same. We have families and friends, and that’s what really matters. Why do we want to put those we love in jeopardy by getting involved in everyone else’s business. I have no issues with Russians, or Chinese but I fear my own US government my just put the lives of my children at more risk. I do love my country and the soldiers that fight to protect my freedoms. But I do not like when our government has to get involved in so many issues that really don’t matter to us. US does not have to try to impose their will onto everyone, that’s what bullies do. What’s right for some is not always right for others.

    World Peace, people loving people, that’s what really matters. At the end of your life, it’s not money, jobs, how many toys, or how many bullets you have, it’s about the people you connect with. The relationships you create in your lifetime define who you are when you’re gone.

    I’m sure I will get a bunch of crap about how I don’t love my country, and some other garbage, but that is wrong. I do love this country, and I am proud to be an American. I just have a different opinion about how we should act on the global playground.

    I am not backing up the US at all bro, but i do know , that the US has the most secrets technologies and weapons on earth. If they were to use those most secrets anti gravity space craft fighter plane, having such powers, wow…. I do believes the US will use it at will like the , TR3Bs and dozens of other anti gravity space craft.
