Russian defense analyst Vladimir Tuchkov analyses Russian, Chinese and American developments in hypersonic weapons technology, including the expected timeframe for their deployment, which is sooner than you may expect.

Last week, Tactical Missile Systems Corporation general director Boris Obnosov told Russian media that he was confident that Russia would be introducing hypersonic missiles capable of speeds between Mach 6 and Mach 7 by the year 2020.

The director emphasized that such weapons would significantly weaken the potential of enemy missile defense. “It’s obvious that with such speeds – when missiles will be capable of flying through the atmosphere at speeds of 7-12 times the speed of sound, all [air] defense systems will be weakened considerably.” Continue reading

Russia Doubling Nuclear Warheads

New multiple-warhead missiles to break arms treaty limit

Russia is doubling the number of its strategic nuclear warheads on new missiles by deploying multiple reentry vehicles that have put Moscow over the limit set by the New START arms treaty, according to Pentagon officials.

A recent intelligence assessment of the Russian strategic warhead buildup shows that the increase is the result of the addition of multiple, independently targetable reentry vehicles, or MIRVs, on recently deployed road-mobile SS-27 and submarine-launched SS-N-32 missiles, said officials familiar with reports of the buildup.

“The Russians are doubling their warhead output,” said one official. “They will be exceeding the New START [arms treaty] levels because of MIRVing these new systems.” Continue reading

Former SecDef: Remove ICBMs From Nuclear Triad

If you needed any more proof that the American political establishment has lost its mind and is bringing the United States into suicide, this should suffice.

He may no longer be a defense secretary, but it gives insight into what the ruling governments think and how dangerous they are for America. He is deluded into thinking America needs to take the “moral high road” and dismantle, one of the 45 declared goals of Communism, Russia’s checklist for weakening the United States and opening the opportunity for attack. But then again, how can someone be so deluded into thinking disarming will lead to peace while the adversaries don’t disarm? The only other logical reasoning behind this belief is that it’s intentional.

 

For former defense secretary William Perry, the danger of intercontinental ballistic missiles was starkly illustrated in 1979, when the then-undersecretary of defense for research and engineering was woken up in the wee hours and told 200 Soviet ICBMs were headed for the U.S.

The scare was quickly determined to be a false alarm, Perry told reporters earlier this month at a Center for Media and Security event in Washington, D.C. But the realization that such a scenario could disastrously trigger a U.S. response stayed with him. Continue reading

You Want War? Russia is Ready for War

Meanwhile, America is not ready for war. Barack Obama has been busy creating selfies while decimating and destroying the American military. The only concern of the Obama administration of late is their dog pooping throughout the White House. This article highlights how serious the threat is and how unprepared America is, let alone having awareness outside of the NFL games.

The threat is real. How many more warnings, articles and stories do you need as proof that things are not alright?

If it’s not already too late, American needs to get its act together and return to God. Otherwise, as warned (as commanded) here for years, the Biblically prophesied sword is coming.

(Note: A majority of the article will remain here.)

A threat straight from the Kremlin’s mouthpiece, Sputnik News:

Russia deploys S-400 air defence missile system in Syria

 

Nobody needs to read Zbigniew “Grand Chessboard” Brzezinski’s 1997 opus to know US foreign policy revolves around one single overarching theme: prevent – by all means necessary – the emergence of a power, or powers, capable of constraining Washington’s unilateral swagger, not only in Eurasia but across the world.

The Pentagon carries the same message embedded in newspeak: the Full Spectrum Dominance doctrine.

Syria is leading all these assumptions to collapse like a house of cards. So no wonder in a Beltway under no visible chain of command – the Obama administration barely qualifies as lame duck – angst is the norm.
