US-NATO ‘Buildup on Russian Border Could Lead to Nuclear War’ – Nobel Laureate

On Thursday, US Secretary of Defense nominee James Mattis told a Senate committee in confirmation hearings that NATO must build capacity in eastern Europe to deter Russia’s alleged aggression. This came a day after Secretary of State nominee Rex Tillerson testified that the United States would defend NATO member states if Russia invaded.

“There is little or no evidence that Russia is being aggressive towards the NATO countries,” Caldicott, co-winner of the 1985 Nobel Peace Prize, told Sputnik. “That is a lie that the United States insists on maintaining.”

Caldicott pointed out, however, that it was the United States and NATO, not Russia, that was building up its armed forces to unprecedented levels in central and eastern Europe and exacerbating tensions in the region.

“The severely provocative buildup of military forces, ABM [anti-ballistic missile] systems and equipment on the Russian border is at the least unnecessary and at the most could lead to a nuclear war with Russia,” Caldicott warned.

Far from threatening nuclear war, the Russian government and media were warning their people about the dangers of the NATO military buildup, Caldicott claimed.

“Indeed, the Russian press and leading politicians in the Duma are now postulating that this could well be a future reality, and they are encouraging the Russian population to practice drills to shelter themselves from nuclear war,” she said.

The American public and US policymakers also need to take the threat of nuclear war and the nightmarish consequences that would flow from it far more seriously, Caldicott explained.

In the event of any thermonuclear conflict breaking out between Russia and the United States and NATO “we are all doomed to die a dreadful death of vaporization, severe burns, acute radiation sickness, or freezing and starving to death in the nuclear winter that will ensue,” Caldicott admonished.

Although US Vice President Joe Biden praised the record of outgoing President Barack Obama on reducing the threat of nuclear war during his eight years in office, Caldicott said Obama’s anti-Russian policies had made the danger far worse.

“What on earth Obama, the once-peace-maker, and [US Secretary of Defense] Ashton Carter think they are doing, God only knows unless they are obeying the dictates of their military industrial masters, who need war or the risk of such to survive economically,” Caldicott added.

Caldicott expressed the hope that President-elect Donald Trump would reverse the US force build-up in Eastern Europe after he took office on January 20.

“Once Trump is inaugurated one hopes that his close relationship with [Russian President Vladimir] Putin will lead to rapid withdrawal of these forces and a refashioning of the relationship between Russia and the United States which may ensure our survival,” she said.

Caldicott is the author of many books, including “The New Nuclear Danger: George W. Bush’s Military Industrial Complex” and “War in Heaven: The Arms Race in Outer Space.”

    On the contrary:

    Over 100 Catholic prophecies that detail what is about to happen – civil war/revolution and when all is in turmoil – Russia, with her allies, including China, attack all of Western Europe and America.

    - Marie-Julie Jahenny (1850-1941), French mystic and stigmatic – was shown many revelations by Our Lord, WWI, WWII, and WWIII in detail, among many other revelations: ‘Russia attacks in three wedges – 1. Russia attacks all the Scandinavian and Baltic countries, defeating all quickly. 2. Russia attacks through and with possibly, Germany to France and Spain. 3. Russia attacks though and with Iran to the Balkans, Greece, Turkey and then Italy (Note: Pope St. Pius X and St. John Bosco, among others had the same visions.) Russia wins everywhere for a year or two until the coming of the “Great Monarch” – a man who has all the royal blood of Europe in his veins, one whose family was though to be extinct, but living in exile – who in the middle of this war confronts the Russians and Muslims, with a very small force – when miracles happen during a large battle near Westphalia, Germany. (Search “The Great Monarch)

    - Blessed Sister Elena Aiello (1895-1961), Italian mystic and stigmatic: Among her many revelations – “Russia attacks and overwhelms all of Europe. All American forces overseas are killed and all American supply depots are captured.

    - Sister Lucia of Fatima, warned in 1999, that – “Russia will attack Europe and America with her secret armies, but America will be spared the prison camps” i.e. we fight back and win. (But over 75% of the country dies and over 80% of Europe.)

    - In 1984, Pope JPII asked a German mystics what he had seen in his visions, to which he replied: I saw the sky black with planes and missiles coming out of Russian in numbers the world never imagined they had been amassing, towards the West (Europe) and two submarines surfacing on the East and West Coast of America and firing their missiles at the coastal cities and bases. (some visions mention a EMP just before Russia attacks)

    The many saints and mystics reveal the God is going to let our enemies punish us severely for the sins of abortion, homosexuality, contraception, immodesty in dress, pornography, etc, but mostly for the “great apostasy” – the abandonment of near 2000 years of true doctrine and faith for the worship of man by both the Church and its leaders and hierarchy; their attempt to destroy the faith, but keep the Church structure intact while “man” is elevated to a god.

    Whole countries, cities, provinces, etc will disappear in massive earthquakes and tidal waves, preceding and during WW3 – that what is to happen will dwarf the Great Flood in its violence and terror. All the enemies of God, His Church (including those within up to the TOP) will be killed – but at first it will seem that the enemy has the upper hand, for a short time, then God turns the tables, so to speak, with the Great Monarch and the Three Days Darkness.

      If you can read and understand what you read in the bible then there is no mysticism or magic to prophesies but you do need to know how to apply to the players without getting the players all mixed up.

      Since Gog and Magog was in Asia minor or today modern Turkey as they are a key player in all of this as Russia is not Gog or Magog as so many in the past like to teach.

      Watch Turkey and Iran also China, Russia is a wait and see but don’t see a surprise attack coming from them.

      Since America, Canada, Europe plus others are Israelite nations, you can read Lev 26 and Deut 28 for parallel scriptures on the blessing and curses which apply just the same today.
