The four-star general testified at a nomination hearing for a second term as vice chairman. Continue reading

The U.S. Has No Defense Against A Russian Nuclear Attack. Really.

Not only is the American defense system a sham, but the Sino-Soviet alliance is weaponizing space. The US abandonment of the Star Wars program was absolute suicide and a strategic deception on Russia’s part through it’s so-called ‘collapse’. Meanwhile, Russia has also claimed the ability to evade any missile defense with its latest ballistic missile technology.

If you think America is safe today and has nothing to worry about because it’s in tip-top shape, you either haven’t been paying attention at all or are willfully blind.

You can also take a look at the following, but not complete list of previous articles, to put into perspective the grave danger America is putting itself in:

Missile Defense — Why America Has Almost No Protection From The Greatest Threat It Faces, And What To Do About It

 

The nicest thing that can be said about this approach to security is that it opened the way to reductions in nuclear arsenals on both sides.  The arms reductions have been substantial, but in a way they don’t matter: Russia still has an assured capacity to obliterate America’s society and economy.  That isn’t going to change, because Moscow doesn’t trust Washington and nuclear weapons are its sole remaining claim to superpower status.
