Putin’s July 4th Message

It was only just last June when Russia pulled its nuclear bombers up 50 miles away from the California coastline.

Most would think “So what?” Well, here’s what… Should they be armed, they don’t even need to be 50 miles or 200 miles away. Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco will be erased in minutes by nuclear-tipped cruise missiles. There is absolutely no defense against that.

As America has bought New Lies for Old and fallen for the Perestroika Deception, it has been lulled into a false sense of security. It will only take one such military operation disguised as a “training exercise”, as we’ve now witnessed several times, to carry out a successful first strike. Perhaps this is also why the Pentagon is preparing a cruise missile shield to protect itself from Russia, which may be too little and too late.

Then you ask “Yeah, but what about the American nuclear deterrent?” Well, here’s what: It’s still ran on floppy-disk era electronics and the missile silo crews have seen attrition and corruption like never before. They’ve also been plagued by cheating scandals, purging and the deterrent risks being hacked as well. Not to mention random SNAFUs and security test failures. There are simply two many cracks showing which indicate the American nuclear deterrent is in crisis and close to being fully compromised.

From an objective POV, Russia is clearly nearing checkmate (first strike) capability and the sword is coming to America. It’s increasingly difficult to argue otherwise.

 

Russian nuclear-capable bombers intercepted near West Coast in second U.S. air defense zone intrusion in two weeks

Two Russian strategic nuclear bombers entered the U.S. air defense zone near the Pacific coast on Wednesday and were met by U.S. interceptor jets, defense officials told the Free Beacon.

It was the second time Moscow dispatched nuclear-capable bombers into the 200-mile zone surrounding U.S. territory in the past two weeks.

An earlier intrusion by two Tu-95 Bear H bombers took place near Alaska as part of arctic war games that a Russian military spokesman said included simulated attacks on “enemy” air defenses and strategic facilities. Continue reading

Russia to Create “Son of Satan” Missile

Last week, General Sergei Karakayev, Commander of the Strategic Rocket Forces, announced plans for a new heavy intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) to go into production as soon as 2018. He emphasized that the new missile would be capable of penetrating the NATO missile shield Russia dislikes so much. The new delivery system will carry a five-ton payload into orbit, almost as much as its predecessor, the infamous R-36m/SS-18 ICBM known by its NATO designation, “Satan.” Like “Satan,” “the Son of Satan” will use highly poisonous liquid propellant.

This escalation comes after President Obama once again hailed his Russia policy. The Russian announcement delivers a blow to the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New START), which limited U.S. and Russian warheads. An Obama Administration “reset” policy, New START traded real concessions to Moscow for promises of imaginary cooperation in arms control, in a vain effort to reach President Obama’s dream of a nuclear-free world.

As NATO countries are reducing their military budgets in response to economic crises, the Russian announcement is a sad case of jingoism: The U.S. has not deployed or tested a new nuclear weapons platform since the Reagan Administration. Nevertheless, Russia continues to treat the U.S. as its “principal adversary,” despite the proclaimed “reset” in relations.

My colleague, Baker Spring, notes that “this is in line with Russia’s longstanding policy of creating a multi-polar environment and actively working against U.S. interests all over the world.” Russia is spending more than $700 billion on military modernization, including a missile which, according to Col. General Viktor Yesin, has “a payload four times bigger than that of the Yars missile.” The Cold War rhetoric and price tags indicate a belligerent Kremlin unable or unwilling to fulfill promises of a “reset.”

This demonstrates the White House’s naiveté. The Obama Administration has not learned from Russia’s recent threat to relocate its short-range, nuclear capable Iskander rockets closer to borders with Poland and other NATO countries, or from the announcements of high-ranking Russian military personnel that faithfully represent the political will of the Russian national leadership.
