Dahboo77 Video: Russia Joins China to Counter US Missile Defense

Russia said it’s working with China to counter U.S. plans to expand its missile-defense network, which the two nations see as targeting their military assets.

The upgrades aim to give Washington the ability to launch a nuclear strike “with impunity,” Lieutenant General Viktor Poznikhir of the Russian Armed Forces General Staff said Tuesday at a security forum in Xiangshan, China, according to a transcript of his speech posted on the Defense Ministry’s website. The Asian neighbors this year conducted a joint missile-defense exercise of their computer command staff, he said.

“We are working together on ways to minimize possible damage to the security of our countries,” Poznikhir said. “The illusion of invulnerability and impunity under the guise of missile defense will encourage Washington to make unilateral steps in dealing with global and regional issues. This could lead to a decrease in the threshold for using nuclear weapons to preempt enemy actions.”

Russia’s concern about U.S. nuclear capabilities highlights a deepening rift between the Cold War foes as they trade accusations over the war in Syria. While NATO members have stressed that the alliance’s global missile shield will be a defense solely against potential attacks from so-called “rogue states,” particularly Iran and North Korea, Russia and China have been voicing concerns over their own security.

    “In the war against NATO Russia surrenders 10 days” – Lieutenant Colonel of the Ministry of Defense of the United States

    What are the chances of a direct contact with NATO?

    - The Pentagon and NATO commanders have plans for war against all countries. First of all – against aggressive and unstable. The confrontation between NATO and Russia will take no longer than 10-20 days. Alliance military budget exceeds the defense spending ten of. It will be a war against laser rifle.

    If Moscow will use nuclear missiles, some of them fly up to half, and the rest will intercept a global missile defense system. The only thing that is really dangerous – a nuclear missile submarines off the coast of Europe and the United States. But in this case we believe that we can intercept all blows.

    NATO’s response will be something like this. First, invisible to radar Stealth bombers destroy all military facilities and factories. Then using drones electromagnetic pulse switch off all electronics in major Russian cities. At that time, all military and political leadership of Russia has to be outside the country. After that, any military actions of Russia are impossible. To complete capitulation of Russia in 10-20-day conflict, no one will see any NATO soldier. Then we take the lead in the country – the election of a democratic government in Russia.
