Russia issued a nuclear war threat against the United States, stating that it is deploying troops and ballistic missiles to 50 miles from the US border, The Washington Times reported Monday. Upping the ante follows a long US-led aggressive confrontation; the Pentagon actively considering using nuclear missiles against military targets inside Russia; and concerning widespread Russian military exercises tapping civilian reservist participation.
Breaking – BIN Exclusive Report: US Top Secret Syrian Incursion
This latest Russian move takes the nuclear WWIII threat to a new level. It comes on the heels of classified information that the US has covertly deployed troops now undertaking a Syrian incursion and news that an economic nuclear winter looms.
Svobodnaya Pressa Ishchenko said that so far, no other details have been provided on this future military force:
“However, it’s obvious that this is not just ordinary news, not least because what we’re talking about is the creation of a serious military force just a stone’s throw away from the United States: only the Bering Strait will separate the Russian coastal defense division from Alaska. At its narrowest point, that’s only 86 km away. Therefore, it’s worth taking a closer look at this announcement.”
As Before Its News reported, Russia has been staging widespread ‘snap’ military exercises. It called in civilian reservists to test a new reservist call-up system due for implementation immediately after the exercises are reviewed. These exercises were due to end Monday. Russian forces are, however, building in the Arctic, reportedly due to natural resources there.
Media consensus is that a nuclear holocaust is an impossibility, a limited hangout-type story greatly differing to Pentagon documents, according to head of Global Research Michel Chossudovsky. Russian defense fortification is to be expected considering publicly available military documents confirm a nuclear war is on the Pentagon’s drawing board.
“Let us be under no illusions, the Pentagon’s plan to blow up the planet using advanced nuclear weapons is still on the books,” Chossudovsky states in his Jan. 2016 article, Remember Hiroshima: No Danger of Nuclear War? The Pentagon’s Plan to Blow up the Planet.
Russian ballistic missiles just 50 miles from the US border and they seem to have already decided their targets in the event of a conflict. At a defense meeting Tuesday, Russia’s defence Minister Sergei Shoigu admitted the decision to garrison troops near Alaska was made last year. He confirmed plans to push ahead with the “Coastal defense division” completion by 2018. The force will protect its coast from the Arctic in the north to the Primary Territory in the south.
Mr. Shoigu’s statement included Russia’s purposes for stationing troops a stone’s throw from the US:
“to ensure control of the closed sea zones of the Kuril Islands and the Bering Strait, cover the routes of Pacific Fleet forces’ deployment in the Far Eastern and Northern sea zones, and increase the combat viability of naval strategic nuclear forces” operating in the area.
Sputnik, the Russian news agency quoted Sergei Ishchenko’s concerning comments:
“And most important, of course, is the air base. It’s from its well-heated hangers that the newest fifth generation U.S. fighter, the F-22 Raptor, rises into the air to intercept the Russian strategic bombers which have resumed regular patrols along the edges of US Arctic borders.”
Effectively, the analyst suggested, “if we suppose that alongside the coastal defense division, Russia deploys the Iskander mobile short-range ballistic missile system, the U.S. F-22s may no longer have time to intercept the Russian bombers, while U.S. missile warning stations could unexpectedly go dark.” (Author’s emphasis)
In any case, he noted, “the staff at the Elmendorf base, and the troops at Fort Richardson will go to bed at night with an uneasy feeling, as they did during Cold War days.”
Russian forces are scheduled to be in place near Alaska in “less than two years,” according to Russian officials, unlikely to publicly disclose classified military information.
US-Provoked Nuclear War Holocaust, Good for Peace and Profits
“From the ongoing refugee crisis triggered by NATO’s own global-spanning and ongoing military interventions, invasions, and occupations, to its continued expansion along Russia’s borders – violating every convention and ‘norm’ that existed during the Cold War to keep it “cold,” NATO has proven that it is to the populations it poses as protector over, in fact, their greatest threat,” reported Tony Cartalucci for Global Research in July.
Still, the international community turns it back on refugees its NATO leaders illegally create and instead, endorses WWIII. “The international community has endorsed nuclear war in the name of world peace,” Prof. Chossudovsky has stated.
“War is Good for Business: Spearheaded by the “defense contractors” (Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Boeing, British Aerospace et al), the Obama administration has proposed a one trillion dollar plan over a 30 year period to develop a new generation of nuclear weapons, bombers, submarines, and intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) largely directed at Russia and China.”
While today’s list of the Pentagon’s targets remains classified, cities in Russia, China, the Middle East, North Korea are on the target list. An Associated Press report quoting Pentagon sources (June 4, 2015) confirms (edited for brevity):
The Pentagon has been actively considering the use of nuclear missiles against military targets inside Russia, … Three options considered by the Pentagon are placement of anti-missile defenses in Europe aimed at shooting Russian missiles out of the sky; a “counterforce” option involving pre-emptive non-nuclear strikes on Russia military sites; and “countervailing strike capabilities,” involving the pre-emptive deployment of nuclear missiles against targets inside Russia.
The AP states: “The options go so far as one implied—but not stated explicitly—that would improve the ability of US nuclear weapons to destroy military targets on Russian territory.” [In other words, the US is actively preparing nuclear war against Russia, as Prof. Chossudovsky warns.]
Robert Scher, one of Carter’s nuclear policy aides, told Congress in April that deployment of “counterforce” measures would mean “we could go about and actually attack that missile where it is in Russia.” According to other Pentagon officials, this option would entail the deployment of ground-launched cruise missiles throughout Europe.
The criminality and recklessness of the foreign policy of Washington and its NATO allies is staggering. A pre-emptive nuclear strike against Russian forces, many of them near populated areas, could claim millions of lives in seconds and lead to a nuclear war that would obliterate humanity.
Even assuming US officials threatening Russia do not really want such an outcome, and are only trying to intimidate Moscow, there is a sinister objective logic to such threats.” (Niles Williamson, Military Madness: US Officials Consider Nuclear Strikes against Russia, World Socialist Website, June 5, 2015, emphasis added)
