U.S. urged to counter Beijing’s military, economic expansion

China’s large-scale military buildup, regional coercion, and economic aggression are part of plan for global domination, experts told Congress on Thursday.

The nuclear and conventional weapons buildup, militarization of islets in the South China Sea and global infrastructure investments aimed at controlling nations are signs Beijing has emerged as America’s most significant national security challenge, a panel of specialists told a hearing of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

Russian Military Expert: ‘We Are Quietly Seeding The U.S. Shoreline With Nuclear Mole Missiles’

If you take this for a joke, you should really think twice about how you react, and consider the following facts:

First, when JFK was still alive, he mentioned during a dinner conversation to a reporter that the Soviets had a nuclear device at their embassy in Washington, DC, just blocks away from the White House. If relations turned sour, the United States would be decapitated in one blow.

Second, reading the book “Spetsnaz. The Story Behind the Soviet SAS” by the highest ranking Soviet defector during the Cold War, Viktor Suvorov, is a creepy eye opener which brings to light signs and indicators of how World War IV (III is the Cold War) will begin. If you want to jump right to it instead of reading the book in its entirety, you can save yourself time by reading the 15th chapter, “Spetsnaz’s First World War.” However, to understand how the 15th chapter came to this, you have to read the previous 14 give insight into how Russians think, how Spetsnazs are groomed and what mission(s) they’re on — and their ultimate goal: Toppling America.

It’s worth your read and you might come to the realization that the world is in the most danger it’s ever been, even more so than the Cold War. Why’s that? Because even during the Cold War, America wasn’t asleep like it was today, thinking everything is just fine and dandy.

This isn’t a joke. The Russians love useful idiots who scoff at the idea they’re not in danger. Should America continue disarming or not modernize and rebuild, it’s going to receive its first major defeat — if it’s lucky enough to survive and see it. This isn’t fear mongering, this is pragmatism, and you likely won’t be able to even fathom or conceptualize what was written here unless you’ve been brushing up on Soviet ideology, history and such for years.

On February 28, Russian military expert Viktor Baranetz, a retired colonel and former defense ministry spokesman, published an article in the Russian tabloid Komsomolskaya Pravda titled “Trump-Pump-Pump And Our Big Bang.” In the article, Baranetz asserted that Russia has asymmetrical responses to the increase in the U.S. military budget. According to Baranetz, Russia is “quietly ‘seeding’ the U.S. shoreline with nuclear ‘mole’ missiles” that “dig themselves in and ‘sleep’ until they are given the command” to detonate.

However, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov dismissed these claims. In response to a journalist’s question on Baranetz’s article, Peskov said: “This sounds strange, to say the least, and so I would suggest that you not take newspaper reports like this seriously.”[1]

Following are excerpts from Baranetz’s article:[2]

“Our Asymmetrical Response Is Nuclear Warheads”

“The U.S. is the permanent ‘world champion’ in the size of its military budget – almost $600 billion, which is 10 times more than Russias. Even if we add together the military budgets of the top ten countries in the world, they would not reach the American budget! Now it turns out that even that is not enough for Donald Trump. He intends to increase defense expenditure by $54 billion. This money would be enough to maintain five Polish armies. Or 10 Ukrainian ones. Continue reading

After years of delays, Tehran announces receipt of Russian anti-aircraft equipment, which could impede an Israeli strike

Russia began delivery of the S-300 missile defense system to Iran on Monday, according to the Iranian foreign ministry.

On Monday, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Jaberi Ansari told local media that the delivery of the system had already begun. Continue reading

Bomb-sniffing dog discovers 2 Hellfire missiles bound for Portland

Being that missiles don’t normally get packed in wooden coffins, let alone non-military planes, we could be likely looking at terrorist plans to attack America from the inside.

 

BELGRADE, Serbia — Serbia’s authorities are investigating reports that a cargo package bound for Portland contained two missiles with explosive warheads on a passenger flight from Lebanon.

N1 television said the package with two guided armor-piercing missiles was discovered Saturday by a sniffer dog after an Air Serbia flight from Beirut landed at a Belgrade airport. Continue reading

Israel raises Hezbollah rocket estimate to 150,000

New assessments suggest the Lebanese terror group is ramping up efforts to acquire weapons

Israeli officials believe that the Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah has amassed around 150,000 rockets, including a number of long range Iranian-made missiles capable of striking Israeli cities from north to south.

The estimates represent a 50 percent increase in the group’s weapons stockpiles since May, when a senior Israeli intelligence official put the number at 100,000. Continue reading

Russia warns of ‘risks’ should Sweden join Nato

A top Russian official has told a leading Swedish newspaper that the country would be likely to face military action if it were to join Nato.

Nearly one in three Swedes think the country should join Nato, a major poll suggested last month, up from 29 percent of Swedes in 2013 and 17 percent in 2012.

The shift in public opinion is largely credited to a rising fear in the Nordic country of a potentially aggressive Russia. Sweden’s security service Säpo recently stated that the biggest intelligence threat against the Nordic country in 2014 came from its eastern neighbour. Continue reading

Russian Tu-160 Heavy Bomber to Be Invisible to Air Defense

On April 29, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu visited the Kazan Aircraft Production Association and ordered to resume production of the Tu-160.
“There is no match to the Tu-160 among supersonic aircraft,” Shoigu said.

Russia’s fifth Yasen-class nuclear sub to be laid down on March 19 — source

MOSCOW, February 6. /TASS/. The fifth Yasen-class multipurpose nuclear-powered submarine will be laid down at the Sevmash shipyard in Northwest Russia on March 19. It will be named Arkhangelsk, a Russian defense industry source told TASS on Friday.

Yasen is the fourth generation of multipurpose nuclear-powered submarines. They are equipped with the Oniks and Kalibr type missiles. Unlike most Soviet submarine designs, the Yasen-class boats do not make use of a double-hull-instead it has hybrid design with a lighter structure over the vessel’s pressure hull. Continue reading

Iran announces it is exporting missiles to Iraq

NICOSIA — Iran has reported missile exports to neighboring Iraq, a leading defense client of the United States.

The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps has cited Iranian missile deliveries to neighboring Iraq, Middle East Newsline reported. IRGC Air Force commander Brig. Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh said his force was exporting missiles for Baghdad’s war against Islamic State of Iraq and Levant. Continue reading

Islamic Jihad Said to Have Iranian ‘Judgement Day’ Missile

Sources said that Islamic Jihad’s big ‘surprise’ was a long-range, explosive-laden Iranian-made rocket.

Islamic Jihad has “many more surprises up its sleeve,” said Abdullah Shalah, head of the terror group said Sunday. In an interview on an Arab satellite station, Shalah said that “We have a store of strategic weapons that we have never used,” but was prepared to bring out against Israel if the war in Gaza continued. With that, he did not specify what those weapons were.

According to sources in Gaza, those weapons are Iranian-made “Zelzal” missiles, an unguided missile that can carry a payload of up to 600 kg (1,323 pounds) of explosives for a distance of up to 200 kilometers. Speaking to the Donia Alwattan news site, the sources, which claim to be close to Islamic Jihad, did not say how many such missiles the terror group had, adding that “this is their ‘judgement day’ weapon.” Continue reading

170,000 rockets are aimed at Israel’s cities, says IDF intel head

170,000 certainly ups the ante and brings credibility to Iran’s latest threat of slaughtering all of America’s military bases within its reach.

The head of Israel’s most powerful intelligence agency depicted Wednesday a changing battlefield in which offensive cyber capabilities will, in the near future, represent the greatest shift in combat doctrine in over 1,000 years. For now, though, he said, the 170,000 rockets and missiles pointed by enemy states at Israel represented the most pressing threat, a danger he placed even above Iran’s rogue nuclear program.

“Cyber, in my humble opinion, and you don’t have to agree with me, will be revealed in a not very long time as a revolution greater than the creation of gunpowder or the usage of the aerial space at the start of the past century,” said Maj. Gen. Aviv Kochavi, the head of the IDF’s Military Intelligence Directorate. Kochavi, a former infantry officer, called the possibilities inherent in cyber warfare “nearly limitless, and that is not a metaphor.” Continue reading

Cuba Admits to Sending Weapons to North Korea

A follow-up from a previous post where Panama had stopped a ship bound for North Korea, from Cuba. Little do people know, Cuba already has nuclear missiles (once again) planted within its territory. They are reinstalled. See the original story by clicking here.

Cuba’s Foreign Ministry on Wednesday confirmed that it sent missiles and other military equipment to North Korea aboard a ship that was seized by Panamanian government authorities.

In a statement, the Cuban ministry said the ship, the Chong Chon Gang, and its 35-member crew were detained.

“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs wishes to inform that said vessel sailed from a Cuban port to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, mainly loaded with 10,000 tons of sugar,” the statement said. Continue reading

Deterring an Asia nuke race

It should be known that Russia also plays the game of pretending to reduce their nuclear stockpiles, often claiming their latest missiles are classified as anything but long-range. The only country playing honest is the United States, which has a false sense of security and has developed the illusion that total disarmament would be a demonstration of moral strength.

SINGAPORE – How many nuclear weapons and delivery systems does a country need as an effective deterrent against the threats of attack? Finding an acceptable balance is critically important in Asia, where four of the world’s nine nuclear-armed states are located.

The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) reported in June that all four Asian nations with nuclear weapons — China, India, Pakistan and North Korea — appeared to be expanding their arsenals while the United States, Russia, France, Britain and Israel were either reducing them or holding the number static.
