Putin warns of a new ‘arms race’

Russia has half of America thinking that America itself is sparking the arms race, when in fact it’s been Russia that has made every effort to militarize and modernize weaponry that has been a blatant breach of treaties for decades. The U.S. hasn’t even had a new nuclear weapon deployed since the early 90’s and it’s ‘Star Wars’ program was scrapped after Reagan had left office. Now we have a Russian (as well as Chinese) space warfare program being deployed as we speak, as well as new nuclear weapons. It’s been well documented in the public domain for decades. Donald Trump is merely reacting to the unfairness and trying to maintain the U.S. position of supremacy. The Russians are quite masterful in the art of manipulation, especially public opinion.

Moscow (AFP) – President Vladimir Putin warned Wednesday of a new arms race if America pulls out of weapons treaties, and said Russia would respond “in kind” to any new US missiles placed on European soil.

At the weekend, US President Donald Trump sparked concerns globally when he said he would ditch a Cold War-era nuclear weapons treaty, the three-decade-old Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF). Continue reading

Russia 24 hours away from WAR: Lithuania says Putin could mobilise army in just ONE DAY

And it was warned of by one of Putin’s henchmen that, if they go to war, they have the capability to carpet bomb as far as Poland within thirty minutes… before NATO even knows what happened and is able to put a single plane in the air:

“We have to strike Poland and the Baltic States, where there are NATO rockets and aircraft. Since we cannot allow one plane to take off and strike Russia – we will have to strike first – half an hour before takeoff. And to be sure, we will be carpet bombing.  America is not a threat, but the small midget states of Europe will cease to exist. They will be wiped out. Then NATO will have to beg us for negotiations. Otherwise we will give them again a May ’45.”

– Vladimir Zhirinovsky, August 2014 (Television interview, 8.08.2014.)

RUSSIA could launch an attack on the Baltic states within as little as 24 hours, Lithuania has warned.

Lithuanian intelligence services say Moscow’s speed could leave Nato with no option other than to have military forces deployed in the region ready for action.

With upgrading its military in the Kalingrad region, intelligence suggests reinforcements could potentially be prevented if there was an attack.  Continue reading

SWEDEN is preparing hundreds of nuclear bunkers ready for a surprise Russian attack amid fears of a Cold War in the Baltic.

The Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB) has reportedly been tasked with reviewing the bunkers.

Swedish authorities built a network of 65,000 bunkers in the Cold War in the event of a nuclear war with the then Soviet Union.

MSB says the shelters can protect against biological weapons, fire and chemical warfare. Continue reading

Russian Military Expert: ‘Russia Is Creating Three Strong Army Groups On The Border With Ukraine… Capable… Of Launching A Quick Strike In The Direction Of Kiev’

On July 15, the Russian daily Vedomosti published an article by a Russian military expert, Ruslan Pukhov, about Russian military planning objectives.[1] In his article, Pukhov explains that the concern exhibited by NATO members about the Baltic States’ security is misplaced, as Russia did not take any significant measure to bolster its military presence in the Kaliningrad region bordering on the Baltics. On the contrary, Russian forces were radically reduced in the area. 

Pukhov stressed that Russia avoids being drawn into a direct military rivalry with the West, but concentrates its forces around its main and fundamental security issue: Ukraine. Pukhov wrote that Russia is creating three strong army groups on its border with Ukraine, which are capable, if necessary, of launching a quick strike in the direction of Kiev. Therefore, Pukhov explained, current Russian military planning is divorced from any ‘threat from NATO’ or ‘threat to NATO’, but is geared towards creating a powerful force on the Ukrainian border, “which will allow the Kremlin to expand the range of possible [military] force options to the Ukrainian situation.” Continue reading

Russian drill calls for ‘NATO’ soldiers ‘to lay down arms, stop being pawns’

Psychological warfare on NATO and the West: Disguise your invasion preparations as a situation where you’re the victim of an invasion, yet victorious and having NATO and the West lay down arms. The source of this article, Russia Today, plays a part in downplaying, diverting and obfuscating who the real victims of a Russian attack are. It could also be, and the Russians are masters at it, that they are attempting to provoke an attack so they are able to claim they are victims.

Russian troops were allegedly on the hunt for NATO soldiers during a mission in the northwest of the country. However, there is no need to panic. The alliance is not invading, as it was merely a mock exercise to simulate a hypothetical incursion into Russia.

The opposing force was not specified, but messages played over loudspeakers as the drills took place left little room for the imagination.

Russian army concentrates forces near Aleppo ahead of all-out assault

Russia has continued to build up forces north of the city of Aleppo over the past few days. Western and Middle Eastern sources monitoring the war in Syria estimate that this step is in preparation for an all-out assault by Russian, Syrian, Iranian and Hizballah forces on rebels in the northwestern city. The Russian command in Syria is said to be determined to capture Aleppo, purge the city of rebels and restore control by Syrian President Bashar Assad. Continue reading

Russia and China Are Using Hacked Data to Identify and Neutralize U.S. Agents

As was predicted, the U.S. intelligence community has been fully compromised. Hopefully not, but it might only be a matter of time before we — like the dead bankers and ongoing U.S. military purge — start seeing a list of dead U.S. agents piling up.

 

This is one of the great scandals of the Obama administration–really, of the post-war era. But our Democratic Party media, fearful of what may be coming in next year’s presidential election, have consistently downplayed it. The Los Angeles Times reports: “Foreign spies use hacked data to identify U.S. intelligence agents.”

Foreign spy services, especially in China and Russia, are aggressively aggregating and cross-indexing hacked U.S. computer databases — including security clearance applications, airline records and medical insurance forms — to identify U.S. intelligence officers and agents, U.S. officials said.

At least one clandestine network of U.S. engineers and scientists who provide technical assistance to U.S. undercover operatives and agents overseas has been compromised as a result, according to two U.S. officials.

Russian Deployment of Missile Defenses Hidden in Plain Sight

Despite its incessant propaganda against U.S. ballistic missile defense efforts, Russia is building a unified “aerospace defense” system aimed at intercepting U.S. ballistic missiles.

Russia is now pressing for a legally binding commitment by the U.S. that would limit our missiles defenses. Furthermore, Russia is demanding a veto on U.S. deployment decisions. Indeed, as General Nikolai Makarov stated, “The main condition for joint work [in the area of missile defense] should be the permanent participation of Russian experts in drafting the European missile defense architecture.”

Moreover, Russia’s effort to build an aerospace defense system began far before the 2002 U.S. decision to deploy very limited missile defenses. As Colonel-General Boris Cheltsov of the Academy of Military Sciences, Aerospace Defense Department Chief, revealed: “Back in 1994, the first Russian Federation’s Aerospace Defense project came about. In 2006, the Russian president [Putin] has approved the Conception for the Creation of the Aerospace Defense System.” As a result of the 2006 decision, according to Colonel-General Cheltsov, and after President Putin approved the Russian Federation Aerospace Defense Construction Blueprint 6, work began to be conducted on the development of a real-time data transmission system, on active antenna arrays and on fundamentally new detection, reconnaissance and weapon systems, including systems based upon “new physical principles.” Continue reading
