If Turkey And Russia Continue Fighting, It May Threaten NATO’s Existence

We all knew it would happen, whether off the coast of Alaska, over the Baltic Sea, or in the Middle East. Russian President Vladimir Putin has been routinely challenging the NATO airspace for months, well before entering the Syrian conflict. Military experts warned that Russian aircraft flying in crowded airspace with transponders off is a recipe for disaster. Continue reading

Permanent Civil War

BERLIN (Own report) – Techniques of anti-Soviet propaganda that had been developed by Nazi officers, could serve today as a model for western anti-Russia psychological warfare operations, according to a semi-official publication from the entourage of the Bundeswehr. The current conflict between Russia and NATO has a “highly pronounced ideological dimension,” analogue to the Cold War, explains the author Uwe Hartmann, a colonel in the German armed forces. According to Hartmann, the Russian side is using the “freedoms of Western open societies” to “influence” public opinion with the aim of “relativizing the value of rights and freedoms,” “sowing discord” and “insecurity within the population.” To counter this strategy, attributed to Russia, Hartmann recommends reversion to the methods of the so-called ‘internal leadership’ concept elaborated by Wolf Graf von Baudissin, who had been on Hitler’s General Staff. This concept calls for preparing the armed forces as well as the society at large for a “permanent civil war” and for the leadership elite to convince Germans of the “worthiness of defending their country,” while immunizing them against all “ideological temptations” and “propaganda attacks.”

‘America is a bomb waiting to explode’

As anti-American as the state-owned (Kremlin) propaganda outlet RT is, there couldn’t be more truth behind this article:

The United States is in decline. While not all major shocks to the system will be devastating, when the right one comes along, the outcome may be dramatic.

Not all explosives are the same. We all know you have to be careful with dynamite. Best to handle it gently and not smoke while you’re around it.

Semtex is different. You can drop it. You can throw it. You can put it in the fire. Nothing will happen. Nothing until you put the right detonator in it, that is.

To me, the US – and most of the supposedly free West – increasingly looks like a truck being systematically filled with Semtex.

But it’s easy to counter cries of alarm with the fact that the truck is stable – because it’s true: you can hurl more boxes into the back without any real danger. Absent the right detonator, it is no more dangerous than a truckload of mayonnaise.

But add the right detonator and you’re just one click away from complete devastation. Continue reading

Russian gangs trying to sell radioactive material to Isil terrorists in Moldova

Imagine all the cases where no one is caught and therefore went unreported. If you wonder why there’s so many people concerned about open borders in the United States, this might be a good start.

On a more serious note, it was warned about several years ago that if a nuclear device was to ever go off in America, resulting in entire cities destroyed and millions of lives lost, the trail will lead back to the Kremlin. Matter of fact, we’ve been warned several times of the plans China and Russia have for America, yet allow ourselves to continue being sold New Lies for Old.

The, Russian mafia, for example is a KGB-controlled gang. The Kremlin uses gangs as fronts for strategic operations. It’s also evidenced in Red Cocaine, where drug cartels have been infiltrated by Russia and are now used to subvert America in one aspect via doping. While every gang might not be under Kremlin control, the ones that are given material like this should be highly suspect. Materials like this are not left in grandma’s basement, but rather, are under close watch of Russian security experts. It’s no accident that these materials simply wind up “lost”. It’s also been claimed that Chechen terrorists acquired Soviet nuclear weapons for al Qaeda. Author Paul L. Williams in his book Osama’s Revenge had once mentioned that al Qaeda has nukes already within the United States, and are plotting an American Hiroshima.

If you still have doubts or can’t stop chuckling at these claims, you can always reference JFK’s interview with Time Magazine, where he mentioned the Russians had a nuclear device blocks away from the White House — and that was decades ago.

 

Moldovan authorities have teamed up with the FBI in push to prevent nuclear material falling into the hands of extremists in the Middle East and Africa

Criminal gangs with Russian links are operating a thriving black market in nuclear materials in eastern Europe, often with the explicit intent of connecting sellers to Middle Eastern extremist groups including Islamic State.

Authorities working with the FBI have interrupted four attempts by gangs to sell radioactive material in Moldova. The latest known case came in February, when a smuggler offered enough radioactive cesium to contaminate several city blocks, specifically seeking an Islamic State buyer.

Putin’s Plan in Ukraine: Invade, Wait—and Invade

As reports broke on Wednesday concerning a new eruption of heavy fighting in eastern Ukraine, a picture took shape suggesting that Russian President Vladimir Putin is following a blueprint of expansionism that dates back thousands of years.

It’s a blueprint that warfare historian Victor Davis Hanson calls “invade, wait—and invade.”

In an article from this March, Hanson explained: “From Philip of Macedon to Napoleon, aggressors did not necessarily have a grand timetable for creating an empire. Instead, they went at it ad hoc. They took as much as they could at any given time; then backed away for a bit, if they sensed strong opposition was building—only to go back on the offensive when vigilance waned.”

Contain China

NEW DELHI/COLOMBO/BERLIN (Own report) – Today, Tuesday, German Minister of Defense Ursula von der Leyen will begin several days of talks in New Delhi on questions of military and arms policies. India’s new armament projects are the immediate reason for von der Leyen’s visit. India wants, among other things, to construct German submarines under license, and Berlin is seeking a more intensified cooperation in foreign and military policy. This visit will prepare numerous agreements, within the framework of the German-Indian government consultations, scheduled for October. It takes place in the context of India’s efforts to roll back China’s influence in the Indian Ocean – an effort Berlin supports. Sri Lanka is a current point of contention of this power struggle. Over the past few years, this strategically important island nation has begun to ally itself closely with Beijing. To avoid a too strong dependency on China, the new Sri Lankan government – in office since January – is seeking to reduce its ties to China and strengthen relations to the West. Last week, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, Germany’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, welcomed his Sri Lankan counterpart in Berlin, to reinforce Germany’s position in Sri Lanka – in light of the power struggle with Beijing.

Vladimir Putin’s ally issues chilling warning to the West: ‘Tanks don’t need visas’

https://i2.wp.com/i3.mirror.co.uk/incoming/article5671059.ece/ALTERNATES/s615/Russian-Army-T-14.jpg

 

One of Vladimir Putin‘s closest aides has issued a chilling warning to the West: “Tanks don’t need visas”.

Deputy premier Dmitry Rogozin – seen by some as a future Kremlin president – claimed the West is now scared of Moscow’s military muscle.

His outspoken words come as the West remains at loggerheads with Russia over Putin’s seizure of Crimea, and alleged military strongarm tactics in eastern Ukraine.

Vowing to exploit the vast mineral riches of the Arctic, Rogozin claimed that America and Euorpe “are afraid of Russia”.

The West is “afraid of the fact that we have started looking around, at our enormous territory”, which, he argued, reached far north of existing frontiers in the Arctic. Continue reading

Russia’s “Weaponization” of Information

Testimony Presented to the House Foreign Affairs Committee

April 15, 2015

Helle C. Dale

My name is Helle Dale. I am Senior Fellow for Public Diplomacy in the Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Institute for National Security and Foreign Policy at The Heritage Foundation. The views I express in this testimony are my own, and should not be construed as representing any official position of The Heritage Foundation.

Audiences within reach of Russia’s growing media empire are increasingly subjected to manipulation and rampant anti-Americanism.[1] This trend has intensified since the Russian annexation of Crimea and its invasion of Eastern Ukraine in 2014. Through its global network, Russia Today (RT), the Kremlin broadcasts globally in five major languages, including on cable TV stations in the United States. Free Western media has no comparable presence in Russia.

Russian propaganda is corrosive to the image of the United States and to our values. Or as Assistant Secretary of State for Europe Victoria Nuland described it before this committee on March 4, “the Kremlin’s pervasive propaganda campaign, where is truth is no obstacle.” And Russian propaganda is being spread aggressively around the world as we have not seen it since Soviet days. This is not just in Central Asia, and Eastern and Central Europe, but even here in the West. The daily content and commentary from RT and others is often polished and slickly produced. And it’s not like old-fashioned propaganda, aimed solely at making Putin and Russia look good. It’s a new kind of propaganda, aimed at sowing doubt about anything having to do with the U.S. and the West, and in a number of countries, unsophisticated audiences are eating it up.

The Silk Superhighway

Five years old, but vindicated, still quite relevant and accurate:

 

Who is China’s largest trading partner?

If you guessed the United States, you’re wrong. It’s the European Union.

If you got the first one right, here is another question: Who are the biggest exporters in the world? First place goes to the European Union. Second goes to China. Third would then go to Germany if it wasn’t already included within the EU. America comes in at a distant fourth place, followed by Japan.

The world has changed. Not long ago, America was both the largest exporter of manufactured goods and the world’s most important economy.

Yes, a shift is occurring—and it is titanic. Today’s global power centers of manufacturing and trade have swung back to Europe and China. The most important and lucrative trade routes are once again between the old world’s East and West. The modern Silk Road is swarming with the new merchants.

Russian alignment with Asia to be fixed foreign policy: Duowei

Russia is abandoning its strategy of aligning itself with the West in favor of becoming a part of the East, according to a commentary from Duowei News, a US-based Chinese political news outlet.

….

This push towards Asia and the abandoning of the “Western path” has been spurred by Russia’s nationalist scholars such as political scientist Alexander Dugin, believed to be an important influence on President Vladimir Putin’s foreign policy. Dugin, who founded and heads Russia’s Eurasia Movement, has long envisioned a strategic bloc that would join the former Soviet Union to Middle Eastern countries, including Iran.

Germany Has Had Enough With US Neocons: Berlin “Stunned” At US Desire For War In Ukraine

This is one of many factors in why you will most certainly see a German-led European Army coming soon and NATO getting the boot. Pax Americana is in decline and a new chapter in world history will be opened. The Fourth Reich has landed.

 

While Russia’s envoy to NATO notes that statements by the deputy head of NATO testify to the fact that the leaders of the bloc want to intervene in Russia’s internal politics, and are “dreaming of Russian Maidan,” Washington has a bigger problem… Germany. As Der Spiegel reports, while US President Obama ‘supports’ Chancellor Merkel’s efforts at finding a diplomatic solution to the Ukraine crisis, hawks in Washington seem determined to torpedo Berlin’s approach. And NATO’s top commander in Europe hasn’t been helping either with sources in the Chancellery have referred to Breedlove’s comments as “dangerous propaganda.”

And as Der Spiegel reports, The Germans are not happy.

Breedlove’s Bellicosity: Berlin Alarmed by Aggressive NATO Stance on Ukraine

Russia Orders Surprise Test of Central Nuclear Base

The Russian armed forces’ strategic missile command (RVSN) have ordered a snap inspection of the state of the nuclear arsenal in one of the country’s central military bases near the city of Yoshkar-Ola.

While the tests will entail an assessment of the nuclear storage facilities, fire safety and general hazard-containment conditions of the Yoshkar-Ola RVSN base, according to Yegorov servicemen will also be given a rudimentary test on nuclear arms operation. Continue reading

Iran could nuke New York, Bennett warns Americans

Economy Minister Naftali Bennett warned American TV viewers Sunday that Iranian nuclear ambitions were a direct threat to the West, and that the regime in Tehran was developing its missile program abilities with an eye to launching nuclear attacks on major Western cities.

Bennett, who is Israel’s economy minister, told Fox News in an interview that Iran, “the biggest exporter of terror in the world,” was developing nuclear warheads and intercontinental missiles capable of reaching New York, London and Paris. Continue reading
