A formal hello, how ya doin’? salute with a middle finger and a nuclear bomber from the Ruskies has come our way not once, but twice in the last two weeks. Seems to me the Russians are itching for war and are prepping on all fronts. This time Moscow dispatched nuclear-capable bombers into the 200-mile zone surrounding U.S. territory. They came just short of breaching the 12 mile zone we consider sovereign air space. The previous incident involved two Tu-95 Bear H bombers and took place near Alaska as part of arctic war games that Russian military claim included simulated attacks on “enemy” air defenses and strategic facilities. How very ‘Red Dawn.’
I’m sure you all remember how Red Dawn was “over the top” and “completely implausible” and other dismissive epithets of the “that’s crazy — it could never happen” variety. And anyone who actually tried to have a discussion of a scenario like that was summarily labeled “nuts.” Well, after all these years, I have to wonder if that idea is still “crazy,” or if its very plausibility drives the four-year delay of the movie’s remake — you know, the one that was supposed to release just before the 2008 election and which now won’t be released until after the 2012 election. Yeah. Still crazy, after all these years. Let’s look further into this…
It appears our old pals, the Russians, are war gaming striking two of our strategic missile sites with their long-range air-launched cruise missiles: Fort Greely, Alaska and Vandenberg Air Force Base, California. Yeah, now I know why Obama is so cuddly with Putin, they both have similar goals of destroying America.
Not long ago, Russia brought up the ominous specter of a preemptive first strike against the United States. This was in response to US deployments of missile defense interceptors and sensors in Europe. As far as I know, we are moving ahead with those activities. In Russia’s eyes, if the situation gets any worse, they will decide whether to hit us or not and they smell blood and weakness in the waters surrounding America these days. It would be the perfect emergency.
Retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney, a former Alaska commander for the North American Aerospace Defense Command, said the latest Bear H intrusion appears to be Russian military testing.
“It’s becoming very obvious that Putin is testing Obama and his national security team,” McInerney told the Free Beacon. “These long-range aviation excursions are duplicating exercises I experienced during the height of the Cold War when I command the Alaska NORAD region.
McInerney said the Bear H flights are an effort by the Russians to challenge U.S. resolve, something he noted is “somewhat surprising as Obama is about to make a unilateral reduction of our nuclear forces as well as major reductions in our air defense forces.”
“Actions by Russia in Syria and Iran demonstrate that Cold War strategy may be resurrected,” he said.
“These are not good indications of future U.S. Russian relations.”
Indeed, these are very bad indications and all Americans should be paying attention to this. Russia is beefing up their weaponry while we are cutting ours (thanks to the dumb bastard in the White House). When Romney is elected, he may have more than just economic headaches to worry about. The Russian Bear with Iran and China could very well pull us into a nuclear World Ware III. The Cold War never went away folks. Don’t kid yourselves.
From The New American:
On May 3, 2012, Russian Chief of General Staff Nikolai Makarov warned that Russia would deploy its strategic nuclear rockets in Kaliningrad Oblast, potentially to destroy the U.S. antiballistic missile defense system, planned for Europe. Makarov went even further, warning of a possible preemptive nuclear attack. “A decision to use destructive force preemptively will be taken if the situation worsens,” Makarov said.
The planned U.S. missile defense system to protect Europe from a nuclear missile attack has caused much friction between Russia and United States. Russia considers the antiballistic missile system an encroachment on its traditional “sphere of influence” and a threat to its national security, seeing as it could neutralize Russia’s nuclear deterrence of Europe. In the event of a war, this would give the U.S. and NATO a considerable advantage; the U.S. or NATO would be able to launch a preemptive strike on Russia without having to fear nuclear retaliation. As a result, Russia views the system as an indication the U.S. and NATO intend to go to war with Russia.
The U.S., on the other hand, has repeatedly stated that its intention is not to deter a missile launch from Russia, but from either Iran or North Korea. The U.S. and its NATO partners, including Britain, Poland, and the Czech Republic, are committed to its deployment, while Russia fiercely opposes it. Neither side will budge — that is up until now.
“This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility,” President Barack Obama privately told Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, at the Nuclear Security Summit, in Seoul, South Korea, on March 26, 2012. Medvedev replied, “I understand you. I transmit this information to Vladimir [Putin], and I stand with you.” Vladimir Putin was not the only person Obama’s “private message” was transmitted to. Unbeknownst to Obama or Medvedev, their conversation was recorded and broadcast live via an open microphone and camera.
Obama has no intention of protecting America and several well-placed EMP’s would take our military and electrical grids down for the count. Millions would die and that is IF the Russians and Chinese don’t physically invade us. If they do, even more will die and the red, white and blue will become just red. It will make Red Dawn look like a walk in the fricking park. Tick bloody tock.
Of course, after the two incidents with the Russians, instead of upping our security threat level, the Obama administration immediately began to downplay the threat as merely a training activity. Training for what then? Tag? How do you think the Russians view this? They think we are cowards and weak – vulnerable to attack and they would be right. And still NORAD and our weak kneed leaders say they do not consider these intrusions to be a credible threat. Well, now I feel ALL better, don’t you?
The Alaska bomber flights coincided with a summit between Obama and Putin in Mexico on June 18. The other was Putin’s Fourth of July Bear greeting to Obama.
According to U.S. officials, some 30 bombers and support aircraft took part in the war games, including the Bear Hs and Tu-160 Blackjack bombers.
As reported by The Washington Free Beacon, Russian Air Force spokesman Lt. Col. Vladimir Deryabin, told reporters in Moscow last month that the arctic strategic war games “practice destruction of enemy air defenses and strategic facilities.” Do the math.
Remember, it’s totally a coincidence that the remake of the movie Red Dawn has now been delayed four years. Coinciding with a presidential election — right after the election. How convenient. Red Dawn is “still crazy” after all these years and yet could happen any day. America should be vigilant.
