US Army Chief Threatens War With Russia:
“We will beat you harder than ever before”
In comments that were clearly directed at Russia, US Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley recently threatened that the US is ready to “destroy” its enemies.
Putin: Russia Has a Secret Weapon against US Attack

(July 17, 2016) — In 2007, Putin informed the Western world that Russia will develop a secret weapon to counter US advances. This was said in response to the US missile defense system that was being developed at the time (previously prohibited in international law.) Russia’s counter-measure weapon is now almost complete. With the NATO missile defense system on Russia’s doorstep — the threat to international security is very real; not that you would know it via mainstream Murdoch media.
In 2002, the United States unilaterally and without consultation, withdrew from the landmark Anti-Ballistic Missile (ABM) Treaty. President George W. Bush noted that the treaty is “now behind us,” describing the ABM Treaty as a Cold War relic.
Signed in 1972, the ABM Treaty barred both the US and the USSR from deploying national defenses against long-range ballistic missiles. The treaty was based on the premise that if either superpower constructed a strategic defense, the other would build up its offensive nuclear forces to offset the defense.
The superpowers would therefore quickly be put on a path toward a never-ending offensive-defensive arms race, as each tried to balance its counterpart’s actions. Until Bush took office, the Treaty was referred to as a “cornerstone of strategic stability” because it facilitated later agreements, reducing US and Russian strategic nuclear arsenals.
The US, assuming that a weakened Russia will never again be in a position to counter US hegemonic power, proceeded to encroach on Russia’s borders through its manipulation of NATO objectives. Today, there is no instrument in international law that prevents the possibility of mutually assured destruction. Putin has been sending out warnings for over 10 years — all of which fell on deaf ears. Who will push the button first?
Doomsday Nuke War with Russia Looming:
Brit General Warns: ‘The end of life as we know it’

(October 24, 2016) — Senior British army officer Sir Richard Shirreff told CNN that the West faces its biggest threat from warmongering Russia since the cold war. He said that Vladimir Putin is plotting to “re-establish Russia’s status as one of the world’s great powers” by swamping the Baltic states of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia with his nukes.
With both nations said to be “on a war footing”, former deputy supreme allied commander Shirreff fears Moscow “may have already lit the fuse that could lead to the unthinkable: nuclear war with Russia in Europe”. Blasting NATO and the US, he compared the West’s policy towards Putin to the appeasement of Hitler — when Britain and France give the Nazi leader what he wanted to keep the peace.
In the event that Vladimir Putin does officially put boots on the ground in the Baltic states, the US — and all other NATO members — would be at war with Russia under Article 5 of the Washington Treaty.
He wrote: “A Russian attack on the Baltic states puts America at war with Russia — meaning nuclear war, because Russia integrates nuclear weapons into every aspect of its military doctrine.” Russia is already at war with the US, he sensationally claims, adding that he believes Moscow is behind the hacks, which led to Hillary Clinton’s leaked emails.
He said: “And don’t think Russia would limit itself to the use of tactical nuclear weapons in Europe. Any form of nuclear release by the Russians would almost certainly precipitate nuclear retaliation by the United States, and the dreadful reality of mutually assured destruction and the end of life as we know it would follow.”
Last week Russia warships escorted by the Royal Navy passed through the English channel in an apparent display of Moscow’s military might.
Russian General Evgeny Buzkinsky said that Russia and the West have entered a new Cold War that could spark pockets of conflicts across the globe.
According to Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, former assistant secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy, Russia’s nuclear arsenal could completely decimate the eastern seaboard of the US.
‘We’re at War.’
Russia and the West Have Entered
A New Cold War that Could Spark Conflicts across the Globe

(October 23, 2016) — Russian General Evgeny Buzkinsky’s damning view comes as tensions between the Kremlin and the West hit the same level as the Cuban Missile Crisis. This week the Russian navy sailed through the Channel in a deliberate show of force to the UK.
The Russian foreign ministry on Saturday accused the Obama administration of attempting the “final destruction of relations with Russia”.
“If we talk about the last Cold War, we are currently somewhere between the erection of the Berlin Wall and the Cuban Missile crisis,” Lt Gen Buzhinsky said. “In other words, teetering on the brink of war, but without the mechanisms to manage the confrontation.”
The Kremlin has already decided to cut off diplomatic channels with Washington until after next month’s US presidential elections.
Russia hopes to strike up a more “sincere” relationship with either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, the Telegraph reports.
Vladimir Putin’s ‘Satan’ Nukes Would ‘WIPE OUT’ the East Coast on the Dawn of World War 3
Henry Holloway / The Daily Star
(October 24, 2016) — Vladimir Putin’s superpower sits on the largest nuke stockpile in the world and its most powerful missile is the SS-18 — better known as the Satan.
Russia is believed to have 55 of the weapons in service, but experts have warned as little as five could make ash out of the East Coast of the US.
These weapons are said to make the nuclear bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki at the end of World War 2 look like “popguns.” More than four million people would die if a Satan carrying its maximum payload was launched at central New York.
Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, former assistant secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy, made the stark prediction of an apocalyptic nuclear strike launched on the US by Russia. One of Putin’s Satan missiles would “wipe out three quarters of New York state for thousands of years”, he warned.
Satan missiles are capable of carrying nuclear warheads with payloads of up to 20,000 kilotons — more than one thousand times more powerful than the bomb dropped on Nagasaki.
At maximum payload a direct hit on New York would kill 4.5 million people, injure 3.6 million, and send radioactive fallout stretching more than 600 miles.
The weapon can also be armed with 10 smaller nukes at 550 kilotons each which can spread across a huge area and are nearly impossible to intercept.
Dr. Roberts wrote for the Centre for Research on Globalization: “The atomic bombs that Washington dropped on these helpless civilian centers while the Japanese government was trying to surrender, were mere popguns compared to today’s thermo-nuclear weapons.
“One Russian SS-18 wipes out three-quarters of New York state for thousands of years. Five or six of these ‘Satans’ as they are known by the US military, and the East Coast of the United States disappears.”
The economist previously warned Russia could “easily” annihilate NATO and trigger the total collapse of the Western alliance.
Russia’s nuclear targets across the East Coast would include major population centres such as New York, Philadelphia, Miami, Boston, Jacksonville and Washington DC — based on FEMA predictions from the Cold War.
World War 3 fears are looming as politicians warn a “global war” could erupt between the US and Russia over the conflict in Syria.
