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
The infamous Russian ‘nukes on the loose’ is in play, once again, giving them plausible deniability in advance. Russia is purposely turning a blind eye knowing that material in the past has been stolen and smuggled out. However, what’s more important to understand is the threat (Russia) behind the threat (islam that it radicalized to use as a proxy against the West). For more information on Russia and its Russian trained islamic terrorist proxies, terrorist dirty nukes in the U.S., see HERE.
Still don’t think it can’t happen or the Russians didn’t previously have one in America? In an interview with Time Magazine, JFK had something to say about one in the nation’s capital:
“We have a bustling communist enclave just four blocks from the White House,” I noted, meaning the Soviet embassy. Kennedy paused, fork between plate and mouth, and said, “You know, they have an atom bomb on the third floor of the embassy.” … “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.”
Yes, the threat is real. If it could’ve happened then, it could happen now — especially with the U.S. borders being so open for years on end.
WASHINGTON — The private diplomatic meetings took place over two days in mid-December in a hotel overlooking Moscow’s Red Square.
But unlike in previous such gatherings, the sense of camaraderie, even brotherhood, was overshadowed by an uncomfortable chill, according to participants.
In the previously undisclosed discussions, the Russians informed the Americans that they were refusing any more US help protecting their largest stockpiles of weapons-grade uranium and plutonium from being stolen or sold on the black market. The declaration effectively ended one of the most successful areas of cooperation between the former Cold War adversaries.
“I think it greatly increases the risk of catastrophic terrorism,” said Sam Nunn, the former Democratic senator from Georgia and an architect of the “cooperative threat reduction” programs of the 1990s. Continue reading
BEIRUT — No one is expecting a tank invasion of Saudi Arabia anytime soon, but the kingdom just put in a huge order for U.S.-made anti-tank missiles that has Saudi-watchers scratching their heads and wondering whether the deal is related to Riyadh’s support for the Syrian rebels.
The proposed weapons deal, which the Pentagon notified Congress of in early December, would provide Riyadh with more than 15,000 Raytheon anti-tank missiles at a cost of over $1 billion. According to the International Institute for Strategic Studies’ Military Balance report, Saudi Arabia’s total stockpile this year amounted to slightly more than 4,000 anti-tank missiles. In the past decade, the Pentagon has notified Congress of only one other sale of anti-tank missiles to Saudi Arabia — a 2009 deal that shipped roughly 5,000 missiles to the kingdom. Continue reading
