WW3 Scenario: Vladimir Putin
Arms Anti-NATO Force With Nuclear Weapons

Jennifer Ong / Morning News USA

(July 29, 2016) -- Wherever they may be, Russia wants NATO to know that it is ready to meet the alliance with force, if necessary. With NATO moving more troops closer to Russia's borders, Russia has recently announced that it has amassed its own forces to counter NATO. According to Russia, the forces have been armed with the newest nuclear weapons and defense capabilities.

According to Russian Defense Ministry General of the Army Sergei Shoigu, there has been escalation in the military political situation surrounding Russia's southwest direction. This is primarily brought about by NATO's increasing military presence throughout Eastern Europe, as well as the situation developing in Ukraine and terrorist activities in the North Caucasus region.

Recently, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg confirmed that there will four robust, multinational battalions deployed to the Baltic states of Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, and Poland, which surrounds Russia's own borders. Each battalion will be made up of approximately 1,000 troops. For these, the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, and Canada have all committed their own forces.

"In these conditions we have to take adequate measures," explained Shoigu during a board session of the Russian Defense Ministry in Moscow. That is why there are now four divisions, nine brigades and 22 regiments formed along with two missile brigades armed with the Iskander-M missile complexes.

At the same time, Shoigu announced that the Russian Navy's Black Sea Fleet and Caspian Flotilla have both received small missile ships with the sea-based Kalibr cruise missiles. Novorossiysk and Rostov-on-Don submarines have been placed on combat duty, along with Russia's Bastion and Bal coastal missile systems.

Troops have also received S-300B4, S-400 and Buk-M2 air defense missile complexes. They have also been equipped with the Pantsir-S1 anti-aircraft artillery and missile systems.

Aside from this, the Russian military expresses interest in furthering its air defense. At the same time, it is currently training its mobile rapid reaction forces while its submarine crews are undergoing "under-ice training."

There is also currently a "self-sufficient" force stationed in Crimea.



WW3 Scenario: Russia Prepared
To Attack NATO, Frozen War Happening

Precious Valerie / Morning News

(July 28, 2016) -- Nothing spells danger than what is happening between NATO and Russia. Despite denying accusations that they are both strengthening their forces against each other, the signs are evident for a new Cold War, especially after Russia decided to form a brand-new task force to counter NATO buildup in Eastern Europe.

Russia Prepares for NATO
Tensions are rising near Russia's border, with NATO building up forces in the regions of its members. Since NATO finished its Warsaw summit, it has become evident that it is determined to counter its so-called Russian aggression.

Moscow has started developing a force to counterbalance NATO's massive military buildup near its European border. The force will operate across Russia's western and southern borders, as confirmed by Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu.

According to Shoigu, Moscow has started upgrading its military forces because of the growing terrorist activity in the Caucasus region, overall situation in Ukraine, and of course, the military buildup in Eastern Europe.

"In the given conditions, we have to take commensurate reaction measures," RT quoted Shoigu during a Defense Ministry board session.

The minister also reported that since 2013, Russia' Defense Ministry already held 200 drills in the southern military district. Additionally, Shoigu confirmed that four divisions, nine brigades, and 22 regiments have been created from scratch.

Frozen War Near Russia's Backyard
Nonetheless, NATO is not the only thing Russia should be worried about. A new report from National Interest claims that a frozen war near Russia's border has started to heat up. An Azerbaijan-Karabakh conflict escalated more than two months ago, and there is another threat that things could escalate further.

Russia has to be on the lookout for what happens between Azerbaijan and Armenia. As with other conflicts, it could be possible Russia's interests would also be at stake should things turn for the worse.


WW3 Scenario: Russia Ready
To Attack US & NATO By Sub

i>Jennifer Ong / Morning News USA

(July 27, 2016) – It is an attack scenario that brings concerns to experts more than any before. It seems Russia now has enough undersea power to launch a powerful attack against the US and NATO using fleet nuclear submarines.

When it comes to the west, there seems to be a shift in balance of power underwater. Russia is said to have been rapidly expanding undersea operations with "broader strategy of coercion" aimed towards perceived enemies, the United States and the rest of the NATO alliance.

Even with sanctions imposed on Russia by the EU recently, a new report says that the Russian Navy has managed to effectively shield submarine forces against economic and personnel challenges that have otherwise affected the rest of the Russian military.

According to a new report published by the Center for Strategic & International Studies, Russia is more than ready when it comes to the possibility of attacking enemies from deep under the ocean. In fact, back in 2014, there have been a number of Russian submarine "Loch Ness-like" sightings in Sweden. It was perhaps Russia's way of expressing displeasure regarding Sweden's growing relationship with NATO.

During the same year, the United Kingdom's Royal Navy also reported of a possible Russian submarine spotted just off the coast of Faslane in Scotland where the Royal's Navy's only submarine base can be found. On April 2015, similar submarine sightings were reported by the Finnish Navy.

Today, the Russian Navy is said to be in possession of as much as 56 submarines. Among these are the Severodvinsk-class nuclear-powered attack submarines, highly regarded by a number of current US admirals.

Russia's Northern Fleet, the Russian Navy's biggest fleet, is in possession of about 42 submarines, although open-source analysis has found that only 22 to 31 of them are operational. Nonetheless, Russia's Northern Fleet utilizes a number of both special mission and auxiliary submarines.

To effectively counter Russia's aggressive undersea activity, the report recommends that the NATO and allies, particularly Finland and Sweden, must make improvements when it comes to integrated antisubmarine warfare. Moreover, much focus must also be given to the NATO maritime group.

Recently, the US Naval Forces Europe-Africa announced the start of Sea Breeze, an annual exercise co-hosted by the US and Ukraine in the Black Sea done with participation of 13 nations and 2,300 troops. The exercise includes anti-submarine warfare.


WW3: Russia Counters NATO Presence With Increased Troops
Jennifer Ong / Morning News USA

(July 28, 2016) -- NATO making its presence known in Eastern Europe has caused a great deal of concern for Russia, so much so that Russia will deploy more of its troops into the area to counter the alliance's expansion.

"In these conditions we have to take adequate measures," explained head of the Russian defense department General of the Army Sergei Shoigu. According to the defense minister, the military-political situation in the area has "escalated."

Shoigu also expressed concern about the current situation in Ukraine. At present, the US is hosting a series of military exercises with Ukraine along with the participation of 13 nations and as much as 2,300 personnel. The annual exercise is known as Sea Breeze.

According to the Russia Ministry of Defense, there were four divisions, nine brigades, and 22 regiments formed for this purpose. At the same time, there were two missile brigades armed with Iskander-M missile complexes. Aside from this, the ministry said there is now a "self-sufficient" force deployed to Crimea.

Shoigu said that the Russian southern military district has held as much as 200 military drills since 2013. It has received more than 4,000 pieces of new and modernized military hardware. Aside from this, Russia has decided to put its Bastion and Bal coastal missile systems on combat duty along with its Novorossiysk and Rostov-on-Don submarines.

Russia has equipped its Black Sea fleet and Caspian Flotilla with a number of small missile ships armed with sea-based Kalibr cruise missiles. Aside from this, troops have been equipped with new aircraft as well as anti-aircraft artillery and missile systems.

Previously, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has confirmed the alliance will be deploying a four multinational battalions in the Baltic states to counter Russian aggression. About 1,000 troops each will be deployed from the US, UK, Germany, and Canada.


Russian Nuclear Forces Put On
High Alert After Massive American Fleet
Ordered To Combat Status

Sorcha Faal / What Does It Mean?

(August 9, 2016) -- A grim Ministry of Defense (MoD) report circulating in the Kremlin today says that the Eastern Military District (EMD) has received orders to put its nuclear missile forces on high alert and immediately redeploy all military ground forces to their secretive training grounds located 1,500 kilometers away from their present bases -- all in response to a massive American-led naval fleet in the Pacific Ocean that hours ago was placed on combat alert status for reasons still unknown. [Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]

According to this report, the military ground forces involved in this high alert comprise two combined arms armies and their subordinate large units and formations stationed in the Trans-Baikal and Khabarovsk Territories, the Amur and the Jewish Autonomous Regions, while the nuclear forces involved are located in the Kamchatka region and have been equipped with Iskander short range ballistic missiles (NATO reporting name SS-26 Stone) that they began to receive last year.

The massive American-led naval fleet prompting these shocking orders to be given, this report continues, is comprised of nearly 50 ships and submarines, 200 aircraft and 25,000 personnel from 26 nations that had been involved in the just completed bi-annual RIMPAC 2016 war games in the Pacific Ocean -- but who at 9:00 (GMT+3) this morning were placed on full combat status at the same time Japan issued a warning to China that ties between their nations had deteriorated.



(August 3, 2016) -- The 2016 RIMPAC Fleet: 40 ships and submarines from 12 countries participated in the naval element of RIMPAC.

Here is a video of the PHOTO EX (Photo Exercise), a major logistical exercise in getting all ships and submarines to sail in formation.
This report speculates that this massive US war move was prompted by a breakdown in talks between Chinese and American political and military officials currently taking place in Qingdao, China, where yesterday the USS Benfold (DDG 65) arrived with top Obama regime officials.

With US warships already surrounding what the West calls "disputed waters", this report says, Chinese Defense Minister Chang Wanquan has warned his nation to prepare for a "peoples war at sea" while at the same time ordering combat air patrols over them.

To understand this conflict between China and the West in its historical context, this report explains, were the Western colonial nations in the 18th century carving up the vast Chinese nation and dividing it among themselves.

For the last two centuries, this report continues, China was unable to assert itself against the breakup by these Westerners of its territory -- but now that it is a world power possessing a nuclear arsenal of its own, it is, in essence, reclaiming what has been its seas for over 4,000 years.



(July 17, 2016) -- Aerial view of the decommissioned USS Thach (FFG-43) being hit by missiles and torpedoes during a live-fire sinking exercise (SINKEX) as part of RIMPAC 2016 near Hawaii. Units from Australia, the Republic of Korea, and the US participated in the SINKEX to gain proficiency in tactics and targeting against a surface combatant.
The
USS Thach was an Oliver Hazard Perry-class frigate of the US Navy and was decommissioned and struck in November 2013. RIMPAC (Rim of the Pacific) is the world's largest international maritime exercise, including twenty-six nations, more than 40 ships and submarines, more than 200 aircraft, and 25,000 personnel -- held every 2 years. Filmed on July 14, 2016.


The West, however, this report notes, disputes China's historical claims insisting that the only "boundaries/borders" that should be recognized are those established by the colonial powers -- not those based on historical accuracy.
To how "convoluted/exaggerated" this conflict has become, this report says, is best exampled by Japan, who in 2012 "purchased" what are essentially a few uninhabited "rocks in the sea" called the Diaoyu Islands (or in the West known as the Senkaku Islands) -- and that China called a "farce" and a "slap in the face".



US Navy Drills in South China Sea -- World War 3 Preparations

Once having "purchased" these islands, however, this report grimly states, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe began the largest military buildup in his nations post war history and is now nearing his ultimate goal of changing Japan's pacifist constitution to allow him to launch an unprovoked war against anyone he chooses, and for whatever reason he decides as new laws passed by his supporters now cloak that once free nation in entire secrecy.

So shocking has Japan become in their rearming themselves for aggressive warfare, this report continues, Emperor Akihito this week gave an unprecedented nationwide address saying he wants to abdicate his throne rather than be part of the horrors that are to come -- but that the Western peoples were neither allowed to hear or know about, with their, instead, being told he wanted to step down because of age.

Among the other lies being told to the Western peoples about China's claims to their historical sea routes taken from them illegally, this report further notes, is that it is due to the vast oil, gas and mineral wealth underneath them that the Chinese covet -- but stands in stark difference to the truth that all of these natural resources are in coastal waters belonging to the nations that have them and that China has never made a claim on.

But to the greatest of the deceptions being foisted against the Western peoples, this report says, lies in the Obama regime failing to tell its citizens that the United States is now supporting a Japanese government made up of the same vile and racist factions that started World War II -- and that took the dropping of the world's first atomic bombs to defeat.

In fact, this report explains, in July, when President Putin announced that a "state of war" now exists between the Federation and Japan, the MoD detailed how Prime Minister Shinzō Abe was the leader of religious war cult called the Nippon Kaigi whose goal is to gut Japan's post-war pacifist constitution, end sexual equality, get rid of foreigners, void pesky "human rights" laws, and return Japan to its former Imperial Glory.

Prime Minister Abe, in fact, this report explains, was raised to accomplish this feat by his grandfather, Prime Minister Kishi Nobusuke, who was Japan's minister of munitions during World War II and was arrested as a war criminal -- but never prosecuted and became a founder of the Liberal Democratic Party that now controls the Japanese government.

And in a horrifying turn, this report grimly notes, Prime Minister Abe just this past week was able to appoint as his new Defense Minister Tomomi Inada who, like all members of this religious cult members now controlling Japan, glorifies Japan's World War II atrocities.

As to why the Obama regime has sided with these religious cult members who believe they can recreate Imperial Japan and conquer Asia, this report concludes, is the American's belief that only World War III will be able to free them from the trillions of dollars they owe to China
