Gorbachev Says Nuclear Deterrence Still Matters

The last Soviet leader still considers nuclear arsenals as a crucial factor of international security. Such destructive weapons must be prevented from falling into the hands of extremists at all costs, he stresses.

MOSCOW, December 17 (Sputnik) — The last Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev has disagreed with allegations that nuclear deterrence is no longer relevant in international affairs, in an interview with RT TV channel.

“I do not agree with those who claim that nuclear threat is not a deterrent anymore. We are now far more aware of what nuclear weapons and nuclear power are [capable of],” Gorbachev said. Continue reading

Terrorists ‘acquire nuclear container to smuggle uranium’

The United States has been forewarned for years about an American Hiroshima. The current administration turns a blind eye to unabated smuggling networks across the Mexican and Canadian borders so as to be politically correct. God only knows what else they are, and have been smuggling. Obama has yet to even call the Benghazi attack an act of terrorism. If anyone should doubt the reality of such an event happening, they should keep in mind what JFK had to say during his presidency 50 years ago:

“If things get too bad and war is inevitable,” he said, “they will set it off and that’s the end of the White House and the rest of the city.”

That’s right, you guessed it. The Soviets likely had a nuke in Washington DC.

This is not to ‘fear monger’ as superficial critics would say, but to be a watchman, warn and wake people up. God forbid this actually happens, and such an act (or any act of terrorism) will never be condoned here, but the threat is real. If they could do it then, the terrorists could do it now — especially with today’s technology at their disposal.

The United States today couldn’t be any more vulnerable than throughout its entire history, in a time of unprecedented danger throughout such a fractured world ready to fall into the abyss with even the slightest push. Stop trying to keep up with the Kardashians, disassociate yourself from the mindless shopping mall regime that America has become today, read your Bibles and wake up. We are living in extraordinary times.

Terrorist groups have acquired a “container” to smuggle uranium undetected past the global network of sensors to prevent a dirty bomb, the head of the UN’s nuclear watchdog has warned.

Speaking in London, Yukiya Amano of the International Atomic Energy Agency, said groups’ efforts to build a dirty bomb were becoming “more professional”.

It was particularly worrying, he said, that smuggling networks had hold of technology to evade sophisticated monitoring equipment designed to prevent proliferation of radioactive material. Continue reading

Argentina signs deals with China’s military

Defense minister Arturo Puricelli says cooperation agreements that he signed with Chinese Defense Minister Liang Guanglie will strengthen ties between the Asian giant and Argentina.

He calls China an economic, political and military partner and says the two countries’ strategic positions in terms of international security are almost entirely consistent.

Argentina’s defense ministry says in a Wednesday statement that Puricelli also has visited Chinese defense contractors, viewing helicopters at one and guided weapon systems and anti-aircraft artillery at another.
