There are several ways to interpret Russia’s warning about impending war. Since no one can read the minds of the Russian bear, consider these:
1. This “war is imminent” story is being exaggerated by the Western press.
2. Putin is shoring up his support among his people by exaggerating the threat of war. Hillary did call him the “new Hitler” and has made it clear that she wants to get tough for her own reasons. That gives him an opening to build patriotism in Russia.
3. Nuclear war is imminent. The question is whether Russia or America is planning the first strike. I would argue that the insane U.S. military led by (((neocons))) believes that the U.S. would win the war if America did the first strike.
As tensions rise in the middle East, an official TV channels in Russia has issued a chilling warning that war with the West could be imminent.
Zvezda, a nationwide TV service run by the country’s Ministry of Defence, said last week, ‘Schizophrenics from America are sharpening nuclear weapons for Moscow.’
Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday proposed a law suspending a Moscow-Washington agreement to dispose of weapons-grade plutonium.
Officials said on Friday that underground shelters had been built which could house 12 milion people – enough for the entire population of Moscow.
Russia has clashed with the Western powers over its policy in Syria – where it’s accused of bombing civilians – and the U.S suspended negotiations with the country yesterday.
Both Russia and NATO are still in the position to unleash global-scale nuclear attacks – and the weapons are armed and ready.
The Arms Control Association says, ‘United States and Russia still deploy more than 1,500 strategic warheads on several hundred bombers and missiles – far more than necessary to deter nuclear attack – and they are modernizing their nuclear delivery systems.
As the kids like to say on Internet forums, “Shit’s gettin’ real.”
The American (((globalist))) empire is opposed by both Russia and China. It’s the U.S. military that has troops in what–50 to 100 countries. I’ve featured numerous articles here before by Paul Craig Roberts (see blogroll) warning that Washington wants war.
It’s one with no winners, which the neocons don’t understand.
