U.S. Considers Nuclear Strikes As An Option Against Russia [REPORT]

As tensions increase between Russia and the United States, a chilling report suggests that a nuclear strike is not beyond the realm of possibility. According to the report, numerous sources have reported on the meeting of US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter at the headquarters of the US European Command in Stuttgart, Germany, with two dozen other US military commanders and European diplomats in tow.

U.S. Considers Nuclear Strikes As An Option Against Russia [REPORT]

Nuclear option on the table

The purpose of this meeting is ostensibly to discuss how the economic and military campaign that is currently being waged against Russia will be further escalated. Carter is expected to lead a discussion that will assess the impact of current economic sanctions, as well as encompassing debate on the success of the NATO strategy in exploiting the crisis in eastern Ukraine.

Most serious of all, though, is a recent report published by the Associated Press which suggests that the head of the US military effort, the Pentagon, has been actively considering the use of nuclear missiles against military targets in Russia. This may seem like a dire prospect to anyone aware of the possible consequences of such an action, yet the United States administration apparently considers this a possible response to alleged violations of the 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty.

Reports suggest that three separate options are currently being considered by Pentagon top brass, which include a pre-emptive deployment of nuclear missiles against targets inside Russia. Although this would be a particularly extreme option, it is widely believed to be on the table alongside two other less drastic courses of action. The placement of anti-missile defenses in Europe aimed at shooting Russian missiles straight out of the sky, and pre-emptive non-nuclear strikes are also reportedly under consideration.

A Pentagon spokesman that spoke to the Associated Press did not explicitly confirm the reports, but did state that all military options under consideration are designed to ensure that Russia gains no significant military advantage from the alleged violation. Meanwhile, Russia continues to deny the suggestion that it has violated the 1987 Treaty, stating that its actions have been entirely consistent with this legislation.

The consequences of a nuclear strike against Russia

It should be naturally underlined that a pre-emptive nuclear strike against Russia could quite conceivably, and some might say inevitably, lead to a full-scale nuclear war. The consequences of this are almost incalculable and unimaginable, but the absolutely most optimistic scenario would be that hundreds of millions of lives would be lost. Considering that this option appears to be on the table, it has not unreasonably led some sources to describe the foreign policy of Washington and its NATO allies as staggeringly criminal and reckless.

While such an extreme suggestion as a pre-emptive nuclear strike is always likely to attract naysayers, it is important to assert that there is already significant precedent of such an act occurring. Generations of Americans grew up under the shadow of the Cold War, when the prospect of nuclear war seemed a distinct possibility on a daily basis. At that time, what can best be described as a maniacal nuclear war arms race between the Soviet Union and the United States was a source of concern all over the world, and although this obviously didn’t ultimately result in full-scale nuclear war, it is a matter of the public record that this unsavoury prospect did indeed come extremely close to a horrifying realisation.

Arkhipov and the Cuban Missile Crisis

Following the failed attempt of the Bay of Pigs invasion in 1961, then president John F. Kennedy authorized Operation Mongoose, a series of by now familiar covert CIA actions designed to undermine and overthrow Cuban supremo Fidel Castro, and ultimately to the Cuban Missile Crisis stand-off with the Soviets. During this tense time, Russian submarines that were under attack from US destroyers were carrying nuclear-tipped missiles. Two of the commanders authorized their use, and a third commander, Vasili Alexandrovich Arkhipov, vetoed it. Had the missiles been fired, it almost certainly would have led to a full-scale nuclear war.

U.S. Considers Nuclear Strikes As An Option Against Russia [REPORT]

As the stand-off between Russia and China and United States continues to brew, it is important to remember that while one does not wish to engage in needless scaremongering, the last time two major nuclear powers had such a ‘disagreement’ in 1963, the world was one word away from nuclear war. We can be entirely thankful to Vasili Arkhipov that it didn’t happen, and it is pretty scandalous that this is being considered as a serious option now.

Vietnam, Hiroshima and Nagasaki

In addition to the Arkhipov incident, it also came out as a result of the Watergate tape leaks that then president Nixon once floated the idea of using nuclear weapons against Vietnam. This policy was discussed during a conversation with the infamous policy adviser Henry Kissinger, with the then president of the United States even contemplating and discussing with Kissinger the number of people that such an action would be likely to kill.

Without getting deeply into the historical context and consequences of this particular action, it is also important to recognize and remember that the United States is the only country in history to have utilized full-scale atomic weaponry. The bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August, 1945, killed at least 129,000 people, and remain the only use of nuclear weapons for warfare in history. While some historians and apologists for this particular act suggested that it was necessary in the context of the war, many people disagree from a moral and ethical standpoint, and there are also numerous historians who suggest that Japan was on the verge of surrender without such a drastic action being undertaken.

Regardless of the historical context of nuclear weapons, the fact remains that both Russia and the United States are known to be the largest possessors of such weaponry in the world. There is debate and disagreement over which of the United States or Russia has the most nuclear weapons, but what is unavoidable is that both have enough to cause an almost unfathomable loss of life should they be utilized. We can only hope that the hawkish elements of the United States government steer well clear from the disastrous path that is being contemplated.

    That will be the end of US and NATO to start a nuclear war with Russia.
    Russia nuclear weapon is more powerful than US and NATO nuclear weapon.

  • M W

    There is only nation that has actually used a nuclear weapon and it wasn’t Russia. It was the US…twice.

  • Robert Morrison

    We didn’t in Cuba. In a Nuclear war. Even if Russia had Nuclear weapons on our boarders. No one wins everyone loses. USA has Nuclear submarines that have stealth and the Russians don’t know where they are, Because they can’t track them. Standing order with the subs if War breaks out. Surface to launch depth and let your Missiles fly. Like I said no one wins a nuclear War. Unless you can cyber attack and control their Launch control and you would have to make sure you can control Russian Chinese UK

    It’s quite an irony indeed….

  • http://www.nato.int/ NATO loving trolls are morons

    Benny, I comment on all sorts of issues other than Russia. It is YOU who doesn’t go to these other threads and not me, Dufus. And Moron, I have total contempt for all you Right Wing USA dittoshits who call Americans ‘Russians’ because they have a political disagreement with us. YOu are too shallow to discuss the issues though….

    >”So Russian struggling with Google Translate it is.”

    quite an irony sweety…

  • Benjamin Peters

    Says the guy monitoring his account, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week like it’s his job and only comments on articles about Russia.

    Saying that someone can’t possibly be liberal because they are against Putin’s authoritarian and dictatorial rule of Russia and use of thousands upon thousands of paid internet counter-information agents is laughable.

    Appreciate your part in making the world a shittier place because someone pays you for it. I’m sure your family will be proud of you when you tell them someday.

    I’ll let you have the last word after this, since you actually get paid for it. I’m off to live life and appreciate the small beautiful things in it.

  • http://www.nato.int/ NATO loving trolls are morons

    Well, Ben. Go fart to the wind elsewhere, Buddy….

    ‘The best part is I’m pretty liberal, to the point of almost being socialist in a lot of regards.’

    No you’re not! People with those politics don’t accuse others of being supposedly paid foreign RUSSIAN agents as you just did with me, simply because you disagree with my AMERICAN pov. You are a Right Wing numbskull, whether you know it or not. You are an echo of Joe McCarthy even….

  • Benjamin Peters

    So Russian struggling with Google Translate it is.

  • Benjamin Peters

    It’s a tongue in cheek reference to my left leaning politics exactly because of those dorks. It’s not meant to be taken seriously. I already know you’re a waste of time.

  • Jon Oullette

    Carl- don’t rest quite yet. Your “case” is drawing upon partial incomplete info. First Mr. Putin is not my main man. No one is. Looking at things not patriotically , nationalistically or opportunistically but rather through the lens of an objective right and wrong according to general principles of universally accepted ethics, hemming in on Russia year after year while other resource rich nations are being systemically gutted, watching a violent global hegemony aggressively taking place to me constitutes a wrong. It violates unilaterally the agreed upon consensus of all democratic nations. We are not just talking about abstracts and principles but burned children and dead families…ya, that’s wrong, particularly because it is not the pretense of “bringing democracy to the world” the way it’s being sold to us stateside taxpayers. That’s pure B.S.. It’s about natural gas pipelines to the European market and of course that ultra determining monopoly: OIL…When Vlad threatens nukes the aggressor listens , thinks about calling him on his bluff for a second or two and then just proceeds any “effin'” way which puts everyone everywhere in harm’s way…If you don’t see this than I’m wasting my time talkin’ t’ya- good luck

  • http://www.nato.int/ NATO loving trolls are morons

    You call yourself a ‘libby libtard’ here, but I know nobody without the turds of Rush, Glenn, and Sean in their heads that even speaks this way, Ben. I think that you are a Right Wing shit-tard in real fact. You might even be a potential voter for Donald Trump! lol…

  • Benjamin Peters

    I want to say you’re a bot because I don’t want to believe even Google Translate could produce a word salad of that size.

  • Benjamin Peters

    You’re either a bot, or a Russian struggling with Google Translate. But I’m sure you collect your rubles either way.

  • Benjamin Peters

    Yeah, except your fixation on “Right Wingers” and refusal to acknowledged the fact that this article was written by a non-existent author makes it clear to anyone even casually looking at this that you’re intentional obtuse about facts.

    I wonder if the fact that I’m a libby libtard matters at this point, considering how everything else you’ve said has been completely empty of value anyways.

    That would be wonderful. But you must forgive me for not being as optimistic as yourself. Sadly, here in the US at least, the brainwashing is so severe, and imposed with the tools of fear and PTSD, that I fear we will not be able to overcome as a society.
    But I truly wish the rest of the world the best of luck.

    Its simply time that the people stopped letting others tell them how to live their lives. There is no such thing as a free country on this planet. For the freedoms of this world are simply a matter of perspective.

    It’s part of their overproduction policy, Imperialist colonization “opening markets overseas”: the primary role of O’Bama now is to preserve and protect these various ‘conflicts’ until Cheney &co take over come in and do their thing. It just keeps going around and around like that. Cheney was on the various MSM newslines making excuses for O’Bama in re Syria “he doesn’t really want to be there”, so then they get into office fly the planes over the football stadiums, war, morning in America, doesn’t it feel good to be strong again, more innocent people are slaughtered and the Liberals take the position – we wanted to proceed reasonably and rationally in the slaughter of innocent people but the others overdid it etc etc. The only solution is to render them the USA D-r(s) into minority status and the Libertarians aren’t the ones to do that as their ideology is even worse in terms of overproduction and the ruthless exploitation of humanity

    3) Earth belongs to everybody, if you want to say so, then we are as Human must sit together and make Earth equal access between all Human.

    4) Do not use Earth as advantage with Technologies, it is a big mistake to do so!

    5) Do not destroy Earth with next WWIII. If the World go for WWIII, then the World should take care about Smallest Particles to Neutralize Nuclear Weapons first, then go for WWIII without Nuclear Weapons to destroy Earth! Nobody is winner in Nuclear War! In fact, the whole world will be destroyed, it will be very , very, very difficult for survivors to live!

We Americans know our place in this world and don’t need an idiot who’s clearly jealous of us telling us anything different. I guarantee you aren’t speaking for everyone in your country neither.

    The United States has helped millions of people and countries for decades and probably spent more of our own money they any other country in history so, don’t come here and start bashing the United States because your jealous..I guarantee if Russia provokes the United States they will see who the boss is here..I am not for war and don’t support attacking any country without good cause..Lets just hope Russia smartens up very soon and quits acting like fools testing the United States and it’s allies any further..American people are getting sick of paying for helping other countries fight their own battles!!!!

Why not visit the Nat Geo Wild and learn that as weak as the Polar Bear looks, the Lions still do not dare them.

    Oh please, if not for USSR who lost 27 millions of lives saving the World from Germany we would of speak German. USA joined the war only because they wanted a piece of cake after the war was obviously over and Russia defeated Germany after long 4 years war. Before that US was trading with Nazees among with their enemies just to boom their own economy. For you the war is the main income in the state since WW1 and until now. Nobody believes in your good will on this Planet, that is why you attack and murder who does not agree to bow to US. American barbaric animals.

    I find America and its NATO thugs very immature in their
    response to Russia. America should mature up, you have not been
    appointed as global police. Nobody has asked you to be some kind of
    global mediator or power broker. You take yourself way too seriously and
    have a tendency to get involved in conflicts which you dont know
    anything about. keep ur big yankee mouth shut , ur not the biggest kid
    on the block anymore. Other military powers have emerged and u should
    be sensible now. If u are considering a nuclear strike, then consider it
    on ur terrorist ally pakistan first, the biggest terror exporter in the
    world .

    americans , know ur place in the world. u aren’t big
    enough to boss the world around. fair friendship is on the table, no
    master slave thing.

    Except England, France and Germany…..the rest of the world is With Russia……do not forget that USA cannot even defeat

    This is just a big joke. America is always joking with the silent nature of the Russians on world issues.
    America really need not get involved in the tussle between Russia and Ukraine cos it is a domestic one that they both understood well enough than anyone else, and with time, settle them amicably. And for NATO and the EU, you have more serious problems on your hands than daring the Polar Bear which you can not handle.

I think it is about the time for the Globe to wake up and destroy USA at once and for all, probably after this the peace and prosperity will begin everywhere. To hell USA!

    Seeing US as the youngest and biggest of all countries in the world, this news has evidenced its most reckless and destructive acts. When is USA going to stop acting the ‘spoiled child’ of the globe?

  • Andy Holland

    Actually Putin is trying to reverse that to his credit! Russians have 4x the abortion rate of Americans.
    The article is idiotic, NATO would not use nukes unless attacked and they are talking about the same sort of deployment as in the 80s to get Russia to do the right thing and live with the agreements they are violating.

  • Stephen F. Nowinsky

    I was alive when this happened,We had already defeated Japan their Navy was at the bottom of the Ocean their Army was in Prisoner of War Camps or Dead Their Air Forces were shot down or unuseable.Their country had been Firebombed to a burning disaster.We could have not insisted on unconditional surrender and turned our forces back home.But no Truman had to try this new bomb out and worse he targeted the civilian population not a military target in both Hiroshima and Nagasaki.To me that makes him a war criminal.I say it was a unnecessary act Japan Was Already Defeated.So It was a War Crime it actually prolonged the War with Japan.Then look at the cost to our people later rebuilding Japan.Every year the Japanese have a event in Hiroshima commemorating its destruction.They had a big event for the 50th Year.America was kept in the Dark about the effects of this weapon for years during and after this bombing.They only cared that the War was over not we had done to win it.We have been living with that Wars Blunder ever since and now up it comes again threats of Nuclear War because we dropped them damned bombs.

  • Mohey Ibrahim

    Actually, the tension among Russia and west increases each day as a result of the mutual provocations that the two sides make. The intensive deployment of NATO troops and Black sea is considered as a real threat to Russian national security. Moreover, The remarkable militray activity on the both sides has escalated tension. Russia has been accused of violating regional water and airspace of Holland and Sweden by its bombers and subs. Such issue has forced NATO and US to carry out imminent military drill in Sweden. Such constant provocation may put both of the conflicting extremes on the edge of imminent destructive war if they don’t listen to the reasoning voice.01018026363 [email protected]

    407.000 US servicemen died and using 2 nuke on japan is justified?
    27 million people died in USSR, and around same in China, yet no one used nuke. You will say they didnt have nuke at that time, true, but they have now and they use it only to keep other countries like US to attack them. The only country used nukes is US and did Japan surrender after 2 nukes? NO, they were fighting harder after that!

    In fact, this article is totally BS. America doesnt have balls to nuke any nation that has nukes, especially a big one like Russia. It will not be WW3, it will be end of the world 1! So if ANY person in this world thinks that he has the right to gamble on fate of billions of people and our planet, he has to be shot in head and dumped in garbage where his place is.

  • Restlessgypsy

    You are way off topic! Those countries asked U.S or invited them! By the way, Nucklehead, Guam is a U.S territory! The Ukraine DID NOT invite or ask Russia to invade their country! So again I say; Please try to stay on topic and not try to make yourself look anymore ignorant than you already are!

  • punk

    yes its naïve for americans to think Pakistanis wont stab them in the back anymore. Pakistanis hate USA as much as they hate india. and LeT and JuD and other such groups do seek to launch attacks in USA. americans are naïve to take a rogue nuclear terrorist state as Pakistan as an ally even after OBL debacle.

    American foreign policy is terribly shortsighted.

  • Kiwi

    Typical bl**dy war mongering Yanks! The US are worlds leading terrorists, and have started or been involved in just about every (regional) war since WW2. They thrive of war, and their economy relies on war and the pilfering their big banks have built their wealth on. What a sick country the US is!

  • kdog4864

    So naive.

  • kdog4864

    I don’t think you know your history very well, maybe you would’ve been critical of Truman for his decision but you would’ve been in the minority. 407,000 servicemen from the US died from both theaters we were fighting in, 12,000 US citizens died from these conflicts of which 9,500 were from the Merchant Marine.

    Americans were very weary of the American death toll and at that point were now only fighting in the Pacific against a country who attacked us with out provocation. Americans were very much in support of Truman’s decision especially with its intended results the surrender of Japan.

    Not that bad. You are talking about a world that has angels for leaders.
    It is always good for all nuclear powers to know that they are vulnerable to counterblows. Short of a ban on nuclear weapons, the only credible safeguard is nuclear deterrence.

  • Emmanuel Sillah

    Russia has been talking about the same. The US is merely saying that two can play the game. Hopefully, all the leaders need to know that a nuclear war is not winnable.

    “subhumans” – a famous word from fascist lexicon. Tnink, Americans, if they (ukrainians) call people ‘subhumans’ and murder them only for political position and language, what they would do, for example, with people of different skin colour or religion at the first opportunity?

  • Moonraker20

    Yes, these kinds of arguments are definitely sounded by western leaders!

  • Moonraker20

    The conflict is not even about Ukraine. The conflict is aboutthe western world wiping out any opposition to a one world system and controlling all major resources of the world that is energy, politics, food and science and technology.

  • Moonraker20

    There is no escaping death by anyone on a full scale nuclear war; those so called leaders will die very ordinarily in those bunkers. The bunkers cannot be excluded from natural atmospheric processes for to say the least even one week. The food, water, air medicines and materials such as clothings stored in those bunkers will be contaminated by nuclear fallout in a very short time and the leaders will simply be imbibing nuclear contaminants into their very blood and tissue systems.

  • Moonraker20

    So, stupid people are the only ones that are concerned about destruction of all humanity. Intelligent people judge that there is no need for life on earth? You are crazy stupid.

  • Moonraker20

    Yes, this is unmistakably a western mindset!

  • Moonraker20

    You are sick. What is Israel? It is a nation and a people like any other. Some of you have satanic conviction that God will protect Israel even at the cost of destruction of the whole human race! I don’t expect a true believer in the Lord God to utter those kinds of words. Why would you put God in the category of man whose main goal against fellow men is to dominate, explicit them like NATO and its members want to do historically to the world? Respect God. He can never do that to His people. The criminal and satanic commissions of the western world against humanity will be addressed by God. They will fail.

  • punk

    As an Indian I find America and its NATO thugs very immature in their response to Russia. America should mature up, you have not been appointed as global police. Nobody has asked you to be some kind of global mediator or power broker. You take yourself way too seriously and have a tendency to get involved in conflicts which you dont know anything about. keep ur big yankee mouth shut , ur not the biggest kid on the block anymore. Other military powers have emerged and u should be sensible now. If u are considering a nuclear strike, then consider it on ur terrorist ally pakistan first, the biggest terror exporter in the world .

    americans , know ur place in the world. u aren’t big enough to boss the world around. fair friendship is on the table, no master slave thing.

    ‘Paestine” carved out of the heartland of Israel, while Hamas in south and Hezbollah at north threaten destruction of Israel with over 150,000 Iranian supplied missiles…God will protect and save Israel even at the cost of the total destruction of the

    lol in every single solitary blog across the Web, the self-described progressive thinker truthers endlessly soil themselves over their evil totalitarian fascist police state governments. Thats right: their governments are all 100% evil, corrupt, inept and wasteful, waging endless wars for oil and pharma abroad, etc.
    And yet all their government has to do is legalize their precious dope and the progressive thinker truthers all do a full 180 and promptly support these same governments.
    They suddenly throw their money at it in the form of dope taxes, and they also claim that the government is really not all that bad. That it will use the untold trillions in dope tax revenues to offer free hospitals, free education, free rehab, health care, everything, to everyone forever. Paradise will ensue.
    Nice revisionism, there. And not only that, but the progressive thinker truthers go after anyone still vaguely skeptical about the governments intentions and abilities with a rabid religious fervor on par with that of any ISIS mucho macho. And thats downright pathetic.

We havent fought a strategic military vs military war in 40 years (1st gulf war doesnt count). We couldnt beat Vietnam and we had all the technology in the world at that time. We could never defeat any modern super power without the use of nuclear weapons in turn would destroy the entire world. Somewhere in the US is probably a hidden Nuke from the cold war era and we probably have a hidden one in moscow. Who knows.

    >”Stupid, what do you want from people, who can’t see,”

    Quantum suicide may in fact work and both sides win; from such perspective, nuclear war is a win-win scenario; the looser can not see its death only winner can; since both outcomes have non zero probabilities the only time-branches with winner will go on… the problem may happen only if there is no a clear winner or looser and it is the most likely scenario though…

    Nikita Khrushchev was the Supreme leader of the Soviet Union, therefore it was Not illegal for him to give Crimea to Ukraine!

First you say there are no Russian troops in the Donbass, Then you go on to say, they are helping the residents in the Donbass? You contradict yourself, so which is it? And actually there is proof that Russian troops are in eastern Ukraine! The monitors on the ground that were monitoring the cease fire has reported seeing them and Russian equipment! Satellite photos have shown Russian equipment crossing into eastern Ukraine! This article is not about Syria, Kosovo, so i’m not going to comment on that!

    I was born 1960 and lived within distance of March AFB CA that we would watch outbound B-52s in large deployments fly right over Riverside. It scared the living daylights out of me. Duck and cover drills and the instructions on how to avoid the flash and pressure wave are still fresh memories.

    I used to have nightmares about fallout and would always awaken with me under a truck seeing people on fire running or falling around me; then the blinding flash again and a howling wind one way then the other… as debris assailed me under the truck.

    I’ve been having similar bad dreams again. Not as a child innocent, but as an adult with a grandson. This is unacceptable.
    I believe the world is as close as we ever were to massive nuclear exchange.

    And my Uncle Paul had helped engineer some of the early inertial guidance (gyroscopic mechanisms) at LLL in Palo Alto. He resigned once learning he was building defense and not domestic space systems; as he was morally opposed to nuclear weaponry of any stripe.

    We need to understand the consequences and demand this option be taken off the table. Russia will not back down in a nuclear exchange. They will escalate; and that will result our doing likewise. Humanity will not survive it in any recognizable form.

All these developments now are not in vain. in Luke 17 Jesus gave us the condition that the world would be when this is to happen . how the world will be in Sodom condition and Ezekiel 38 and other scriptures speak of how the world will unite to attack Israel and how the Their God; Our Lord will come and fight for them. But before then the 1 thes 4 going home of the Bride of Jesus has taken place. So it is latter than you think.God bless you all and multiply the way of Grace to you all

    That’s been standard policy of this country for as long as I can remember. Get your facts straight.

    Why don’t you get a head start and “off” yourself?

    So? I would hope so as I’m sure the Russians military planners are doing the same.

  • BRIGHT AKHERE

    Humans can’t end the world.These are rhetorics and bellicose.President is the originator of this fore-thought dastard acts.
    He will soon expire,and not the world that was never made by any man.Period!

    Please to All of you that are afraid, you better give your lives to the Lord Jesus Christ who came and died for we sinners. You must now receive His grace or it will be too late. There is no safe Zone on this planet earth, The Bible says that Jesus is a safety Tower and we are safe in him. The nuclear war must come but when no one knows. But Jesus said that the world will end in the generation that Israel becomes a nation. And since 1948 she is and Look at the latest development how the world are persecuting Israel . This is the end time sign. Run please Run for your lives

    American hawks are maniacs, they are the real devil Obama is their leader and the world should wake up and stand up to these warmonger Americans they will definitely destroy the world.

    True :) And it’ll also solve those pesky problems we all have to deal with on a monthly basis. Stuff like rent, paying the power bill, groceries, breathing, etc.

  • Russell Noyes

    You are obviously Russian and are listening to the garbage that Putin is spewing. He’d have you believe that he has some kind of weapon that will turn all our incoming missiles into giant bouquets of roses and you people are willing to believe him. If it comes to nuclear war, rest assured, you will quickly find out just how ready America is.

  • spurgeonrobert

    Jackson, You think it is, Well their is a good chance it could Happed, Because We have an IDIOT in Washington leading this Country, If NUKES will help the muslims, he will do it, !!

  • Scott

    A pact had been signed a long while ago. This pact between the United States and Russia, it could be as far back as the now dismantled U.S.S.R.. That neither side would possess no more than 1,500 nuclear missiles each. That is at least 3,000 nuclear missiles racing across the sky.

    1,500 points of missile impact points, each missile carries multiple warheads, in the United States and 1,500 missile impact points in Russia. If everything is vaporized in the nuclear blast radius, wouldn’t lakes be instantly dried up? These impact points will throw earth into the air, creating potential lakes for the evaporated water to fill. The dirt suspended in the atmosphere would shield the earth from the sun, no warmth, just nuclear winter. The snow would fill the exsisting lakes and all of the new nuclear missile created craters. Those who survive would have to migrate higher ground, if there is any. 1,500 massive explosions simultaneously happening on each side of the earth. Could that be powerful enough to split the earth in half? Nothing survives, because the two halves would drift out into space. No oxygen. Death.

    Pretender no way. What we have now are proxy wars! Other people are doing the fighting! You seem to have the answers.

  • http://dreamstarworld.wordpress.com/ Terence Blackett

    As an Eschatologist & a DOOMSDAY* Apocalyptic Advocate – the “HANDWRITING” is on the wall “MENE MENE” for the wicked nations of the world…

    JEHOVAH* GOD* have put up for almost 6000 years with man’s CRAP*… If “PROPHECY” is the “ONLY” gauge to measure the insalubrious conditions humanity faces (in an increasing DIVIDED*, DECADENT & DEFUNCT world) – then, the nation are being “GATHERED” for the “FINAL” battle of ARMAGEDDON”…

    What is oblivious to most “DUMBED-DOWN” HUMANS* is that ARMAGEDDON* is not the war they think it is… (This is MANKIND v CHRIST) at the 2ND COMING of MESSIAH!!!

    Before that my dear ones, we must face another act of treachery from the “SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN” (#WW3)…

    Here’s some “CONSPIRACY HISTORY) for ya’:

    The “SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN” (Freemasonry’s HIGH PRIEST*) Albert Pike
    “HATCHED” a “CONSPIRACY based on a SATANIC VISION* he received, where he
    described in a letter that he later wrote to Giuseppe Mazzini, then (ITALIAN
    politician), dated August 15, 1871…

    This letter (DISPLAYED IN THE BRITISH MUSEUM) graphically outlined plans for “3 MAJOR WORLD WARS) that were seen as necessary to bring about the #NWO (One World Order), and we can marvel at how accurately it has predicted events that have already taken place (BAR THE LAST WAR) #WW3 …

    Following are apparently extracts of the letter, showing how the (3 WORLD WARS*) have been planned for many generations…

    “The First World War must be brought about in order to permit the Illuminati
    to overthrow the power of the Czars in Russia and of making that country a fortress of atheistic Communism. The divergences caused by the “agentur” (agents) of the Illuminati between the British and Germanic Empires will be used to foment this war. At the end of the war, Communism will be built and used in order to destroy the other governments and in order to weaken the religions”…

    “Students of history will recognize that the political alliances of England on one
    side and Germany on the other, forged between 1871 and 1898 by Otto von
    Bismarck, co-conspirator of Albert Pike, were instrumental in bringing about the First World War…”

    “The Second World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences between the Fascists and the political Zionists. This war must be brought about so that Nazism is destroyed and that the political Zionism be strong enough to institute a sovereign state of Israel in Palestine…”

    “During the Second World War, International Communism must become strong enough in order to balance Christendom, which would be then restrained and held in check until the time when we would need it for the final social cataclysm…”

    “After this Second World War, Communism was made strong enough to begin taking over weaker governments…”

    “In 1945, at the Potsdam Conference between Truman, Churchill, and Stalin, a
    large portion of Europe was simply handed over to Russia, and on the other side of the world, the aftermath of the war with Japan helped to sweep the tide of Communism into China…”

    (Readers who argue that the terms Nazism and Zionism were not known in 1871 should remember that the Illuminati invented both these movements)…

    “In addition, Communism as an ideology, and as a coined phrase, originates in France during The French Revolution…”

    “In 1785, Restif coined the phrase four years before revolution broke out.
    Restif and Babeuf, in turn, were influenced by Jean Jacques Rousseau (political philosopher) – as was the most famous conspirator of them all, (Adam Weishaupt)…”

    “The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences
    caused by the “agentur” of the “Illuminati” between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World…”

    “The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other…”

    “Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and
    economical exhaustion…”

    “We shall unleash the Nihilists and the Atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute Atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil…”

    “Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the
    world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with CHRISTIANITY*, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction,anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the “TRUE LIGHT” through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of LUCIFER*, brought finally out in the public view…”

    “This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time…”

    WELCOME BACK TO PLANET EARTH for all those who have taken a “SABBATICAL” on PLANET ZOG* – a land of DENIAL* & APATHY* (escapism from the harsh realities of a world staring down into the abyss)…

    The “ONLY” hope today can be found in JESUS CHRIST* and HIS* soon return!!!

  • Lightpaws Hird

    [Quote: “which include a pre-emptive deployment of nuclear missiles against targets inside Russia”] If we end up doing this, your going to start a war that is going to destroy the planet. Are our leaders this insane to think that there would be any hope of avoiding an all out full scale nuclear retaliation from Russia? Come on World Leaders, Wake the F-KE UP! Your not serving your peoples best interest right now.

  • Peter L

    Clinton starved half a million Iraqi children to death when Iraq was not threat to the US. Bush launched a gratuitous invasion of Iraq that killed over a million people. Everyone in Iraq lost a family member due to the US invasion. NATO bombed schools and hospitals in Serbia to force them to hand over part of their internationally recognized territory to the narco-terrorist KLA. Russia drew a line in the sand when the US wanted to bomb Syria in support of al Nusra, and their allies the so-called FSA, which are trying to impose a Saudi-style govt. on Syria. That’s why NATO engineered the coup in Kiev. When Russia followed a policy of appeasement, the US, and their puppet NATO, were launching one act of aggression after another. Someone had to draw a line in the sand.

    No one was killed when Russia liberated the Crimea. The “invasion” of Georgia was helping the Abkhazians and South Ossetians realize self determination.

  • Tyrone Ward

    LOL. All of that just to state the obvious. Of course the nuclear option is on the table. The nuclear option is always on the table. It´s an “OPTION”. Russians has a nuclear option. China has a nuclear option. France has a nuclear option. UK has a nuclear option, India has a nuclear option, Pakistan has a nuclear option. Israel has a nuclear option (unofficially but we all know better). Plenty of countries in the world have a nuclear option. This is nothing new. The nuclear option as been around since the Enola Gay dropped the first modern recording of an atomic bomb on a civilian population back in the 40´s in Japan. So let´s not pretend that this is something that´s brand new. This option is around 70 years old.

    I´m not concerned about the option. I´m more concerned about the conditions and circumstances that would push or pressure someone into coming to the conclusion that they would need to look into using this option. What would need to be done to encourage all to take a step back and away from that button? The simple truth is that we are all going to have to get back into the habit of compromise. Absolutes in international politics with a relative moral and ethical foundation is not going to work. It has never worked, and it never will.

  • odonnet2

    One thing is sure, even if Russia will nuke America it will not and can not launch a nuclear counter strike because not only that our nuclear weapons in our silos, submarines, and bombers, are not up to the degree of readiness for launching. And even if they are, the control of their buttons are spread among military men that refusals by one or two stops the launching. The problem is multiplied as the authority to launch goes up from the President, the NSC, and the Pentagon as disagreements or incapacities by any one of these men or groups of men for political, personal, or moral grounds, co-opts the launching. One thing more, there is never been a recent nuclear launching exercise and I bet those men in charge don’t have the faintest idea how to fulfill their jobs as Putin’s men are. “Oh my God, where’s that carry over attaché case, it’s missing!”

  • Randy Lee

    Well on the plus side, a nuclear conflict would clear up a lot of issues we seem to think are so important nowadays, like what the kardashians are doing today, what bruce jenner (sorry I mean dumbass) will do next, what obummers golf score was……you know important stuff like that.

  • Justin Jenkins

    It wasn’t the US that invaded Georgia, or Ukraine. Russia killed thousands of citizens of these countries Just so They Could Take Their Land, and resources. Russia bullies its neighbors and the only one that can deter them is NATO. That’s why the more Russia bullies its neighbors the more of them join NATO. They aren’t afraid of us, they are afraid of Russia aggression. You have to ask yourself why, and what is Russia doing wrong.

    Putin has threatened to use nukes on several occasion on video. There’s no denying it or excusing it. You act as though Russia has no blood on its hands which makes you delusional. Russia has good people it’s just the leadership that ruins it for that country.

    Idiotic Russian disinformation. First off because NATO would lose a nuclear conflict – we aim at military they murder civilians – so while it is discussed in hypothetical terms like Churchill said, yak yak is better than bang bang. The idea is to build support for more nuclear forces if Russia continues to murder, lie, cheat and steal,

  • chad

    That’s right tell the world what what you have in mind for a military surprise , this coming from the same people that told the enemy America was leaving the middle east !

THE POLITICIANS AND MILITARY LEADERS WILL BE SAFE AND SNUG WITH WOMEN ,MEDICINE,FOOD WATER IN TAX PAID AND 100 YEAR EQUIPPED UNDER GROUND SHELTERS ! IT’S THE AMERICAN PEOPLE PAYING THE TAXES THAT WILL BE KILLED ! BACK OFF,DEFEND YOUR SELF BUT BACK OFF ! TELLING THEM WHAT YOU HAVE IN MIND WILL CAUSE THEM TO ATTACK FIRST AND FAST AND HARD !

  • Peter L

    The Crimea is historically part of Russia. It was illegally given to Ukraine by Soviet dictator, Nikita Khrushchev, who was Ukrainian. There is no proof that Russia has troops in the Donbass. They are helping the residents in the Donbass fight for self-determination which is different from the US backing terrorists trying to shoot their way into power in Syria. At least Russia is not bombing Ukraine like NATO did to force them to spin off Kosovo. The junta in Kiev was set up by a NATO-backed armed uprising against the democratically elected president. Many of the Ukrainian parliament fled. The rest operated at gun-point until they organized some “elections” – and their results.

  • Aldebaran

    First, the transjenner story, now this?

    If this story is even half true, then we’re all screwed! Can someone please explain to our fearless leaders to stop fooling around with the future of Mankind! They must realize that, as is, a simple miscalculation or misunderstanding will spell: THE END!
    Both nations are armed to the teeth with nukes, yet, they seem to have forgotten the meaning of the MAD Doctrine – Mutually Assured Destruction.
    I’m beginning to think that one, or more, world leaders may actually have a death wish, as their actions are insanely, suicidal. As it is, the world is going off the deep-end, even, without the nukes. A nuclear holocaust is unimaginable, but, lets not fool ourselves, it could very well happen, today, or tomorrow? Sobering thought, ain’t it?

    As such, I don’t know how much more my blood pressure can take of this? It’s no wonder the Aliens are avoiding our planet. Wouldn’t you? Can we please all come to our senses? If for any reason, for the sake of our children.

    After Barack Hussein Obama signed the START III treaty with Russia the US is clearly at a disadvantage so why would we use

    OH PLEASE. JUST BECAUSE THE OLD DIRTY, HAIRY, SMELLING AND GROWLING BEAR HAS A NEW MASTER, TSAR PUTIN THE USA NEED NOT ACT LIKE THE OTHER SIDE DOES WAVING THREATS AND SWORDS SO TO SPEAK WILDLY IN THE AIR.
    WE NEED TO RECONSIDER THE COST AND THE MEANS OF THESE PROXY AND ACTUAL WARS IN TERMS OF NOT ONLY REAL MONEY, BUT THE DAMAGE TO OUR CITIZENS AND PROPERTY AS CAPITALISTS AND HUMANITARIANS.
    IF PUTIN WANTS WAR FOR WHATEVER MORONIC REASON TO KEEP HIS PEOPLE OCCUPIED WHILE HE CONTINUES TO RIP THEM OFF, THEN LET’S TRY SOMETHING OLD FOR A CHANGE.
    THIS COWARD AS MOST OF THESE POLITICAL LEADERS ARE COWARDS, AND WE DO NOT MARCH ARMIES INTO BATTLE WITH THE LEADER AT THE HEAD OF THEM, SIMPLY DEFEND OURSELVES WITH A BULLET TO THE THREATENING PARTY’S HEAD…SEND IN THE CIA SHOOTERS.
    WHY SHOULD THE RUSSIAN AND AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE TO TOLERATE THESE MANIACS AND THEIR THIRST FOR POWER AND THE EXCUSES THEY USE? FIND THE LEADER AND MAKE THEM FEEL SOME PAIN FROM THEIR POLICIES.
    MY 24 YEARS OF MILITARY SERVICE TAUGHT ME ONE THING – IT IS POLITICIANS WHO MAKE WAR AND NOT THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO FIGHT THEM. THESE SAME PEOPLE COULD BUILD THEIR NATIONS, BUT ARE USED LIKE CATTLE OFTEN TO FURTHER SOMEONE OR SOME GROUP’S PERSONAL BENEFIT BACK HOME. AND MOST OF THE CITIZENS WHO PUT THESE DESPOTS LIKER PUTIN AND WANNA-BE OBAMA NEVER REALLY PARTICIPATE IN THEIR GOVERNMENT BEYOND VOTING MAYBE OR FIGHT IN THESE BRUTAL WARS. SO TIME WE CHANGED THE PARADIGM…YOU WANT A WAR, THEN YOU FIGHT IN IT TOO.
    THE WORLD IS HEADING TO ANOTHER GLOBAL CATASTROPHE, AND FOR WHAT? SOME IDIOT BACK HERE THINKS THE WHITE RACE AND A REPUBLIC FORM OF GOVERNMENT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR HIS OWN CULTURE’S FAILURE TO ASSIMILATE INTO AMERICAN SOCIETY.; ANOTHER OVERSEAS THINKS AMERICA IS RESPONSIBLE FOR HIS OWN NATION’S GROWTH AND STABILITY PROBLEMS; AND THEN SOME NUT CASE THINKS THEY HAVE THE PIPELINE TO GOD, A GOD WHO BELIEVES IN DESTROYING EVERYTHING NOT MUSLIM…FUNNY HOW LIFE AND IDEAS STILL GROW AND IF NOT FROM GOD OR GOD’S GIFT, THEN IS THERE TRULY NO GOD; AND THE REST LIKE A CHINESE OLIGARCHY GROWN FAT AND RICH WHILE USING THE FAILED COMMUNIST SYSTEM AS AN EXCUSE TO CREATE A ARISTOCRACY NOW TAKING CHINA TO BE A GLOBAL POWER AND SETTLE SOME SCORES WITH JAPAN; NOT TO MENTION TO CONTINUING MASS OF TWO-BIT WARLORDS AND CORRUPT POLITICIANS SOUTH OF OUR BORDERS LIKENED TO THOSE AFRICAN THUGS WHO SAY ONE THING TO GET ELECTED, AND THEN BOW TO THE DRUG LORDS OR ISLAMIC JIHADISTS IN THE CONTINUING RAPE, SLAUGHTER, AND WORSE YET ENSLAVEMENT OF CHILDREN FOR SOLDIERING, LABOR, PROSTITUTION OR THE ESCALATING WORLD-WIDE TRADE OF HUMAN ORGANS AND BODY PARTS TO WESTERN NATIONS.
    SO INSTEAD OF THOUSANDS OF SOLDIERS AND BILLIONS OF DOLLARS, WE SIMPLY SEND IN A MAN OR A SINGLE TEAM AND WITH ONE BANG…
    WHY IS IT WE FEEL THIS NEED TO SHELTER LEADERS FROM THEIR DECISIONS AND THEIR OUTCOMES AS A HUMAN RACE? EVEN IN AMERICA WE ALLOW THOSE THAT MAKE BAD DECISIONS AN OUT IN THE END, SO THEY KEEP REPEATING THE SAME MADNESS OR CRIME REPEATEDLY. AND THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO-TIME RAPISTS, THIEF, MURDERER, OR PUSHER BACK HOME IN BALTIMORE THEN THESE LEADERS WHO ARE ALLOWING OUR WORLD, OUR CHILDREN’S WORLD TO HEAD TO A GLOBAL CATASTROPHE AND WHY – IN THE NAME OF RELIGION, GLOBAL WARMING, ANCIENT CULTURAL HATREDS, AND THE WORSE OF THE WORST, THE NEW WORLD ORDER – WHERE EVERYONE IS EQUALLY POOR EXCEPT THOSE WHO RUN THE GLOBAL ECONOMY LIKE THE CLINTONS AND THE PUTINS, ALL SOCIALISTS NO MATTER HOW THEY SPEAK, THEIR ACTIONS PROVE OTHERWISE.
    SO INSTEAD OF I AGAIN HAVING A RE-ARMING AND POSSIBLE WAR AGAINST RUSSIA OR JAPAN AGAINST CHINA, LET’S MAKE THE CHANGE. FOR THOSE RESPONSIBLE OR WANTING SUCH MADNESS, MAKE THEM ALSO FEEL THE IMPACTS OF SUCH LUNACY IN A REAL AND PERSONAL WAY…IF YOU CANNOT RISK YOUR OWN LIFE, FORTUNES AND FAMILY, THEN START THINKING ABOUT WHAT BEING HUMAN AND BEING A LEADER REALLY MEANS, PUTIN AND OBAMA…IT IS NOT ABOUT FEEDING THE MEDIA MORONS THE NEXT GREAT STORY, IT IS ABOUT MAKING SOMETHING GOOD HAPPEN FOR THOSE WHO TRUSTED YOU TO PROTECT THEM AND THEIR CHILDREN, AND THEIR NATIONAL LEGACY.
    THAT RUSSIAN BEAR SHOULD BE DANCING INSTEAD OF GROWLING AND PROWLING … AND WHY TWO OLD ALLIES ARE BEING LED TO BELIEVE WE HAVE DIFFERENCES WHEN WE SHARE SO MUCH AS A PEOPLE – COURAGE, A STRONG WORK ETHIC AND A STRONG BELIEF IN GOD (REGARDLESS OF THE AMERICAN MEDIA AND ITS LEFTISTS PROPAGANDA MACHINE AND PANDERING OF A MINORITY OF ATHEISTS).
    NOW MUCH BETTER AND CHEAPER AND LESS DESTRUCTIVE IS A SINGLE BULLET THAN THROWING NUKES ACROSS THE GLOBE WHERE NO ONE WINS IN THE END BUT THOSE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS COMING WAR, HIDING IN THEIR BUNKERS WITH THEIR EQUALLY RESPONSIBLE STAFF AND POLITICAL FOLLOWERS IN MOSCOW AND DC. LOCK THE DOORS TO THE UNDERGROUND SHELTER AND VIRGINIA MOUNTAIN RETREAT FOR BOTH SIDES LEADERS AND THEIR FAMILIES AND THEN SEE HOW EAGER THEY ARE TO START A WAR THAT LEADS MANKIND TO EXACTLY WHAT OUTCOME ???

    Also, don’t tell me about how “stupid” I’m sounding when you can’t even spell my name correctly, and use “Your” instead of the proper “you’re” (contraction of “you are”).

    My comment about it being unfounded was by the original idiot’s comment regarding “All this because President Prissy Pants got upset when Vlad refused to return Edward Snowden”, and your apparent defense of the poster when I called it “unfounded”.

    “Obama is determine to get us into WWIII” More ignorance. You’re just going off into la-la land at this point if you honestly believe he’s determined to get us in a war that will destroy both countries involved.

    Try to keep up with the conversation, learn how to spell, and learn proper grammar, especially before calling someone else “stupid”. Also, please cut down on the whining and easily disproven assumptions. It’s not helping you to look very intelligent.

    If this article is right on the pronouncement of US over the use of Nuclear weapons, it will be there usual way of making callous statements aimed at distracting the public and the adversary from their long term covert operations of their CIA. Americans will like using covert operations of proxies for war inteads of going direct to strike. They will like to pull you down using your neibour/s , your polical opponent or the terrorists within you. Because by so doing it costs them less and at the same time give them the room to claim innocence .
    America can never fight a direct war except they are directly confronted. But America is ready to fight hundreds of proxy wars at a time if it is only their voluntier soldiers that are dying and they know that with proxy wars they oligarch are equal to the task at exploiting out the economic benefit from the foreign nations that are acting as proxies.

    In a time like this, standing on our face a much greater threat, a Nazi-breed enemy, Putin, all options is a must and if need be nuke this bastard of our face in a first strike strategy. I know this is kinda harsh but Putin is a greedy self-centered egotistical psycho-sociopath! He will always threaten us of his nuclear arsenal. ALWAYS!

    WHY did you pinpoint Louisiana? you racist against us people from Louisiana? how old are you anyways? and what George stated was indeed truth, for russia does outman us in the nuclear arsenal…that is a FACT…so not really sure where you get your information from…not only that, china and russia are allies and putin has already stated that he would stand with china….do we have the ability to defend ourselves totally here in the usa against any nuke coming our way? I seriously doubt it, for if you look at history, our defense systems have slowly been dismantled and taken out of commission in the past yrs….have a great day!

  • Leon

    Entirely inaccurate. Moscow is protected by the Gollosh Gazzelle Dual Interceptor, shielding it from attack. They have newer more advanced ICBMs than we do with higher yield warheads. The newer ICBMs are immune to most of our ABM systems. Ths instant we try to massively disrupt their communications systems( which I must note are recently upgraded as well and will not be as easy as you think to disrupt) they are going to know exactly what we are doing and treat it as a launch. Not to mention they have more warheads both deployed and in storage. Their second strike capability consist of road and rail mobile ICBMs that are in blast protected structures…….and we will not be able to even find them until they start lobbing their missles at us and we will not be able to knock them out in a preemptive strike. Then your gonna have Typhoons head toward the east and west coast, as well as Tu-160s and Backfires heading our way at top speed. You seriously underestimate Russia’s Stratigic Ricket Force….and overestimate ours. You alsoare underestimate the ferocity in which Russia will fight if they are attacked…..See Hitler and Napoleon for a reminder on that.Remember, the backbone of our ICBM fourse is the ancient Minuteman 3. The Navy has the Extremely deadly Trident, Most of our B52s will be shot down and they can detect the B2. In terms of numbers we will be outgunned….same for yield. You also need to think about if China comes to their aid……they are not the nuclear power Russia is but they can cause a lot of damage to the West Coast.

They are acting more restrained than we would be if the shoe was on the other foot. We need to back out of this slowly and cautiously

  • Curtis Schmid

    Whether true or not the fact that articles like this are being written currently is very telling. History yells us that we absolutely have a plan to use our nuclear weapons as a last resort as does Russia… As someone who is an engineer, independent, and that leans left (I know )… I would be one of the first ones to volunteer to take arms against Russia or China for that matter.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B5OWRRJh-PI&list=FLYJP3MjZQ-BJugrvyegfQ7Q&index=1&feature=plpp_video Alberto Knox

    Well…. That’s not actually technically true. In a pinch we could probably disrupt their communications enough and coordinate a time-on-target attack against their weapons that would really hamper their ability to respond. Sure, they would get some launches off, at least to Europe. The Russians haven’t had much luck with ICBM tests of late.

    We might suffer in a few cities but the effects of a nuclear attack are not what they were in the ’80s. There are far fewer missiles and fewer warheads on those missiles. It would be the collapse of the global economy that would quickly lead to some starvation.

    TLDR: Nuclear war today doesn’t lead to “On the Beach”

    – Triumf, first tested in ’99. You’re trying to tell me that a missile, built to a paradigm that no longer exists, that IS NOT a KKV is something we should worry about?? That was a very poor attempt, Horst. You need to try harder.

    HI, TranfixusIII!!

    Thank you for the pretty young comment!! I like that!! ;)

    Actually, I do remember the cold war very well. That is the reason I mentioned MAD. You are right when you say the Pentagon had nuclear plans on the table even back in 1945. They sure did!! In fact, if it was up to General Patton, After the defeat of the Nazis, he would have strode right in with Nuclear weapons and finished Russia off.

    Unfortunately, TranfixusIII, we do not live in an age of common sense and have not for some time!! So, it would not surprise me at all if someone, again, with an attitude of hubris from the United States, pushed the button.

    To be honest, I don’t have much faith in the current administration we have in the White House right now. In my opinion, almost all of the politicians of today’s stripe are incredibly arrogant and senseless. They are politicians to the core. Heck, I can’t even stomach the office politics at work, let alone on the national or international scale!! They do not care about you and I, they care only about themselves and the lining of their pockets. If war is profitable for them, even a nuclear war, then I would not be surprised to look out the window at 3:00 a.m and find it bright as the afternoon!

    Anyways, just my 2 cents for whatever it is worth!!

    Take care and catch you on the web!!

    Keep the young comments coming!! :D

  • Steve

    If you actually the read the piece that the author sites as the “chilling report” at the beginning of the article, not only is it from a highly questionable source (Centre for Research on Globalization – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michel_Chossudovsky#Criticism) but this “report” makes a HUGE error in assumption. It claims that according to an “AP report”, the US is considering 3 options in response to alleged Russian violations of the INF treaty of 1987. The last of these option is “countervailing strike capabilities” which the author of the report interprets to be a Nuclear First Strike. “Countervailing” is by definition retaliatory and therefore a Second Strike – in response to an attack, in this case from Russia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mutual_assured_destruction#Late_Cold_War). So the whole premise of that article and therefore this article is completely wrong. Not to mention the fact that no link or identification is ever given (in this article or the linked article) to this mysterious “AP report”. If you’re just going to make stuff up, make up better stuff than this!

And “The fact that we actually have nuclear weapons on the table terrifies me even more….” tells me you know nothing of the Cold War. Hell, the world was much more stable back when the USA and the USSR had Mutually Assured Destruction as the deterrent to war.

  • Bob RocCo

    You can say what you want about Bush–but the fact is when he left office, Iraq was totally secure and our relationship with Moscow and Putin were decent, it was Obama that went off the rails and against the advice of our best military advisors pulling all of the residual troops from Iraq for political reasons and created the vacuum that was the birthplace for ISIS, and Clinton and Obama ran with the Muslim brotherhood which was intended to take over Egypt ,and Libya with Syria and Iraq as future potential spots for the Al Qaeda Muslim Brotherhood, this is where the bad blood started with Putin. And to think I just read that we could go to a nuclear war with Russia is now justification for the forced removal of Obama from the WH and the arrest of Clinton for perjury and treason against the United States–her actions and motives justify that…Clinton and Obama–that is the reason for the picture we now see in the middle east.’.

  • Benjamin Peters

    Funny thing about the author of this article. He doesn’t exist. No one can find a writer by that name, and his Yahoo link goes nowhere. So yeah, it probably was.

    And what insults did I use? They are most likely true. The only comments either of you have ever made smack exactly that of infowar agents. All you guys do is spin day in and day out. That takes a certain level of dedication. Or more likely financial incentive.

    The best part is I’m pretty liberal, to the point of almost being socialist in a lot of regards. So your excuse that I’m a “Right-Winger” doesn’t make the facts disappear.

    You know the truth behind your accounts and your intentions. Do you think an honest government would need to hire people to do the jobs you do? The U.S. has plenty of problems, but if you point to that instead of addressing your own problems, you’re just helping sink your own ship all the faster.

    Mr. LOL, it is obvious that you have not being following military developments much. Neither have you been paying attention to Pentagon reports to US Congress. USA anti missile technology is “fire and hope it will hit something” at best, while Russian DEPLOYED C-400 are “one shot, one kill” systems. They are capable to target and neutralize 99.9% cruise missiles and satellites – forget about jets, ballistic behemoths or anything else of size all together. Why do you think US State Department freaks out about even a thought of Russians supplying older C-300 to Iran? Cause C-300 works. Each and every time. Next year Russian military is on schedule to start deploying C-500.

    With that, yes Russians are years ahead of us.

    PS: by the way, if USA is so great and advanced then why are we flying to Space on Russians RD engines or paying Russian to take our cargo and people to ISS? Wake up sheeple.

  • TranfixusIII

    I have to think you are pretty young. And you have no idea what life was like in the cold war. Then, of course, we had a policy of MAD… Mutually Assured Destruction. we AND the Soviets both knew that a nuclear war would destroy both countries… and leaders of both countries wanted their nations to survive. So, no one dared push the button. Now a younger group comes along and panics at the idea that a military planning group has a nuclear strike on the table as one planning scenario. Its been on the table since 1945!!! Of course no one in the Pentagon thinks we can come out ahead in a nuclear war.

  • Living

    Oh yeah that’s really irresponsible of the US and NATO. Yeah Russia is being totally responsible in Europe right now and not provoking anyone either through military action or rhetoric and China is just building an island for which to invite its neighbors for tea in the South China Sea. The US warmongering is well known but this article trying to pin the current situation and any possible consequences largely on the US is laughable. Everyone involved shares the blame.

    Nice of you to remind us as well of how the US is the only nation to have used nuclear weapons in war before and therefore is totally bloodthirsty and ready to use them again as I’m sure you really want to imply. I am one of the believers that a combined Soviet, US attack would have forced Japan’s surrender but whatever your opinion of the bombings it’s incredibly disingenuous to bring that up “Without getting deeply into the historical context and consequences of this particular action” and try to force the idea that that 70 year old action committed to by a government whose people are long since out of power is an argument that the US is completely ready and willing to nonchalantly bomb its enemies again.

    One last thing. The nuclear option is always on the table and always has been in every nuclear state. Welcome to the nuclear age, it started over half a century ago. These plans of last resort or general war plans against competing powers existed before nuclear weapons as well. See War Plan Red, Defense Scheme 1 and the Schlieffen Plan as examples. You’re fooling yourself if you think the great powers have ever simply waited for their enemies to attack before weighing their options.

    Destroying peoples’ countries while pretending to be liberating them is such inane Right Winger idiocy. Even Hitler did that line… and now many Americans, like German’s Hitler fans, are into the same rationalizations as well.

    Too, you are the one defending the Pentagon war machine and the actions of the Pentagon have killed many more people than Milosevic, Hussein and Gaddafi together ever could be accused of doing. Millions of people have lost their lives thanks to your support for this profit making US run business.

  • Jim

    Nuclear attack is a poor choice. “Jeff”. We fire ours, they fire theirs. That’s pretty much it! Everybody dies! Earth will still be here for a really long time.Just without people, or much else alive. A dozen million years from then, who knows what Earth will be like? Perhaps there is a solution that would be better. Why don’t we try that? I am afraid that I am opposed to the destruction of human beings and most everything living on Earth.

    You might buy this pro Pentagon bullshitted out brainwash, but the peoples of Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Iran,Libya and elsewhere do not. Neither does China or Russia.

    The US army has won every battle, my commie friend. We have pulled out of conflicts due to weak political will, but never to defeat. Even in Vietnam, we won the battles … but pulled out due to popular unrest and weak politicians. One of the joys of having a government sensitive to citizen opinion – not that you’d know what that was like.

  • Ronald Barnes

    Absolutely absurd and insane piece. Sure makes the U.S.look like the crazies and Putin with the cool head of restraint. Is this the new U.S. whine-“If I can’t get the world they way I want it I’d rather destroy it”. Yeah right, really makes a whole lot of sense.

  • seaforte

    Excuse me, but by prefixing Henry Kissinger’s name with the adjective “infamous”, the author immediately reduced this potentially interesting, well researched, well articulated commentary into sensationalist hyper biased opinionated drivel. Nixon was impeached – basically for doing what most current presidents are currently doing legally (and far beyond Nixon’s imagination of global thuggery. Actually, compared to Bush/Obama – Nixon comes out looking rather saintly and amateurish when it comes to global assassinations, kidnappings, and torture.

    The fact that the USA has a porous border with Mexico that permits the money laundering of over USD 40 billion a year in illegal and illicit drug sales makes me seriously question our interference in ANY global hot spot, when we can’t even clean up our own house.

    The fact that we actually have nuclear weapons on the table terrifies me even more – as if we can’t even clean up our own house – we should technically be perceived as a pedantic, spoiled, hypocritical bully with the biggest weapon in the room. Now, THAT’s scary.

    Oh…and don’t forget – the IRS is NOT pursuing that drug money – it’s EASIER to create more complicated tax codes to continue to legally embezzle money from the American people, so we can give it away to other corrupt nations, so our corporations can get corruption laden contracts with massive profits and keep the money offshore, so the IRS won’t collect taxes, as they’re too busy embezzling money from American taxpayers…

    wow many remember the days of fear the US and Russia would have a Nuclear War in 1962. Yes the GOP was more then ready to go to war but it was then President Kennedy who saw as a thinking smart President no one would win. Well it seems Cheney and the war hawks have enough idiots in Congress-Senate and once Obama is out of office the US will likely have a Nuclear War with Russia. Putin knows the Congress-Senate are idiots and of course Cheney is half dead already so he doesn’t care. Many wealthy Americans have homes overseas and well Americans dying is no problem for the GOP. Yes Jeb Bush did say the US would have WW3 and let’s face it Russia has just as many Nukes as the US and Russia does have more friends. US can’t look for any support from Israel they never get involved in the US wars.

  • Benjamin Peters

    I’ve got my issues with plenty of things going down in the US, there are plenty of things that can stand for improvement. But that doesn’t give Putin a free pass to be a tyrant. That’s the only excuse I seem to ever hear from these infowar agents posing as average commentators.

  • Benjamin Peters

    Yeah, because it does the US a whole lot of good to be the ones in the article being the bad guys. But you know that already. A brief look into your comment history shows you’re pretty much 100% an employee of one of those Russian infowar centers.

    And infowar is what this article is all about. The author doesn’t exist, neither does the one person cited in it. And as sbb714 already pointed out, it’s full of empty buzzwords.

    Go collect your rubles, friend. I hope it’s worth it making the world a more dangerous place. If the truth was on your side, you wouldn’t have the job you have.

  • Tardis1

    Officially, nothing is ever off the table, even if it realistically has no chance of happening.

  • Benjamin Peters

    Because this is part of a greater infowar. Good job recognizing it for the BS it is. And the author, like the story, isn’t real either. Their Yahoo link goes nowhere, and no on can find a writer by that name.

    Pretty much guaranteed this came from one of the infowar companies in Russia, just like the army of trolls that come into the comment section to cheerlead it.

    This article is fascinating in one way: You get to see what a modern day infowar looks like. Same for a lot of the commenters in the comment section. There is a company in Russia that employs people specifically for upvoting these sorts of articles and for enforcing one narrative in any article that mentions Russia.

  • TranfixusIII

    Yep, and Mr. Morris penned this group of words in the thing he allegedly wrote and called it a sentence: “This policy was discussed during a conversation with the infamous policy adviser Henry Kissinger, with the then president of the United States even contemplating and discussing with Kissinger the number of people that such an action would be likely to kill.” Video games a good grammarian do not produce.

  • Benjamin Peters

    Just like the article itself. The author isn’t even real. The one person cited in the article isn’t real, and the entire thing is full of useless buzzwords that hold no meaning.

  • Benjamin Peters

    A lot of Russian infosec agents from St. Petersburg running around here today I see.

    People need to dig a little deeper in this article. The author is a fake, and the entire article is full of buzzwords and meaningless phrases like “some people” or “sources say”. The one person they mention isn’t a real person either.

    This is pretty much a 100% fabricated article, courtesy of your friends working out of a information warfare company in Russia.

  • Carl Nemo **==

    Hi Jon…I’ll agree we had no business tinkering in Ukrainian politics although Viktor F. Yanukovych was a corrupt politician and one of Putin’s pawns. So too the idea of enlisting the Ukraine into NATO and the placement of Patriot anti missile batteries is provocative to say the least. Russia needs a buffer zone particularly from its former client states. So for the West to have done so was a huge strategic mistake at least in my opinion.

    Now concerning nuclear threats. V. Putin is the first Russian leader, in my time, 70 years that has overtly threatened to use nukes and he’s done so several times. This is quite provocative, so too with the ordered worldwide sorties of Bear Tu-59M bombers each with the capability of carrying 16 nuclear capable ,long range 2500km Raduga class cruise missiles. Patrolling the perimeters of Europe and North America these bombers have the capability of neutralizing a host of major cities on a first strike basis giving them an unacceptable edge concerning an effective counterstrike which has a window of 20 minutes between detection and launch for land based countermeasures. Not much time. V. Putin is a lowlife for threatening such. He considered putting Russia’s nuclear force on standby during his incursion into the Crimea. Obviously this megalomaniac has a high opinion of himself that the West would nuke Russia over such an act. All I can say is if this sawed off bully keeps screwing with the U.S. bull he’s going to get the horn and so to his captive population. Of course this is unthinkable, but never so to a sociopath such as Putin. So your main man is mentally ‘defective’, not stupid, but pathological. He needs to go immediately if not sooner for the good of planet earth, not just the Russian people. I rest my case.

    ” Unfortunately same can not be said about USA”

    – Now this makes no sense and identifies you as a servile Russian sock puppet. You mean it cannot be said that the US is years ahead of the US in missile technology, Horst? Apart from your terrible English and inability be rational, we’ve already shot down test missiles and satellites, Horst.

    The writer isn’t a real person. The Yahoo link above goes no where, and no one can find anyone by that name who is a writer. This entire article was fabricated. If you wonder what an infowar looks like, this is it.

    Especially because in the entire US, there is one person named Niles Williamson, and I’m pretty sure he’s not the guy mentioned in the article.

  • Benjamin Peters

    The author of this article isn’t a real person. Just like the author, this article has been fabricated. You’re right to point out how little sense this article makes.

    This is what propaganda wars look like in this day. This is part of Russia’s infowar. They also pay people to go into the comments to fuel the fire. Just search for “Here’s what it’s like being a paid internet troll for the Russian government” on Google for some articles on that.

    Again–NATO did not march up to it’s borders. The neighbors around Russia wanted to become part of Nato because they feared being overrun by Russia. And It is HAPPENING just like they worried.

    Now I don’t particularly agree with expanding NATO but I do feel that RUSSIA is more of a threat to NATO, than NATO to Russia. Russia survived Ten years in bankruptcy while the US dominated the world as the only super power and it did not threaten RUSSIA one time.

    Now that russia has oil and Gas and an economy that is not based on COMMUNIST principles it is in much better condition to defend itself and instead it has chosen to invade it’s neighbors for some “PERCEIVED” threat.

    So kinda hard to keep using the same old adage..RUSSIA is afraid of being invaded so it must invade its neighbors.

  • Benjamin Peters

    It’s a fabricated article. The author doesn’t exist, it’s unlikely any of this is true. The fact that the entire article is written with lazy general trick writing like “some sources”, “ostensibly”, “some people”. It’s propaganda. This is what it looks like in our age.

  • Rudy Jose Pon

    You may actually be right about Roosevelt and his prior knowledge. In any case he was doing the bidding of the communists in Russia and England! He knew the people of the USA would never voluntarily wage war; so now we have a little help. The poor Japanese fell for the trap! They bombed Pearl Harbor knowing full well that is what Roosevelt wanted! Go one step further and the Japanese knew they would lose the war and become the true victims. Forget about the rape of Nanking, the war atrocities in the Philippines!
    Go back into the bathroom and play with yourself!

    The U.S. government has reinforced underground bunkers in Wyoming for government officials and others considered important to running this country in the event of nuclear war. As for the rest of us, we will simply be on our own. This is what makes their logic so dangerous. When they do make the decision to attack Russia, they will simply take a vacation and head to the mountains. I’m sure Russia has missiles already trained on these facilities, so these government officials may not be as safe as they assume.

  • kejjer

    I must have lived a different history than you. Lets see,
    Since the end of WWII–which was started by the NAZIs and Russians. Nazi’s attacked Poland from the South, Russia attacked from the North. The treaty then brought France and Britain into the war and eventually the USA.

    Korea–North attacked the South-USA sided with the South.
    Vietnam–France tried to keep it’s Vietnamese colony, The North Vietnamese invaded the South, The USA sided with the South.

    Grenada—After the overthrow and execution of the legitimate government the OECS –asked the USA to help invade the country and return it to a democratic government.

    Panama–lets see–the Dictator of panama was working with columbian drug lords to move cocaine through his country and into the USA. The USA imposed sanctions and the Panamanian Government Declared ware in the USA.
    They killed a US Military officer stationed in Panama at which point the US invaded.

    Serbia was conducting mass murder and NATO went in to stop it.
    IRAQ the first time–Iraq invaded Kuwait and the USA along with about 30 other countries kicked them out.
    Afghanistan–the taliban was protecting the terrorist organization that killed a lot of Americans and would not give them up.

    NOW IRAQ–the second time. That is a question for the history books.
    Although I could argue that Saddam Hussein did try to assassinate a former US president–which I think would be reason for WAR by itself. The initial claims that IRAQ made about it’s WMDS and the fact that after ten years it was still not able to account for all the WMDS it had initially claimed to have produced or stockpiled.

    But regardless it pales in comparison to the invasion of GEORGIA by the the RUSSIANS.
    WHICH was for no reason whatsoever.
    Or the invasion and annexing of CRIMEA.
    Or the invasion of the Eastern part of UKRAINE -USING “VOLUNTEERS” which somehow it hides from it’s own people and anybody that questions it gets killed.

After the first bomb most countries would have given up! Not the Japanese. After the second bomb they figured Tokyo was next!!
    In any case a lot of Japanese lives were spared also. Check the projected losses on both sides for a land invasion!! Check the record and then we can have a real discussion!

    Agreed. The American people are tired of war. Wars we dont/didnt want, didnt even cause. We were attacked, and will continue to be attacked, by many nations simply because , at this time, we are world power. That unfortunately includes China. Seen the news about the recent cyber attack?

    Same thing happens to all world powers. It will happen to the next world power as well.

    “China and the US friendship will last forever , not for others , at the expense of their own , once you have a conflict , no end of trouble , I think American people , do not want this, really, do not do this , the Americans are a gentleman , Chinese people are very clever , science and technology than the United States , really, there is no need conflict , and for you ,”

    Actually Russia has not considered building so called ‘nuclear shields’ in order to get a first strike advantage on teh US. It is only the US that has done that, and only the US that has used nuclear weapons on another people.

  • Jimbo

    The Cuban missiles weren’t “legal”. The US is not behaving recklessly, the Russians have invaded a sovereign country.

  • Jimbo

    No, the US nuclear force is not designed for first strike annihilation. The Russian warheads ARE. They are much higher megaton-age, designed to penetrate and knock out US bunkers and command centers in a first strike.

    Did you forget that Japan attacked the US while they had an official

    And Russia considers using nukes on the US. What do you expect from the world’s two largest state sponsors of terrorism?

  • http://www.nato.int/ NATO loving trolls are morons

    A nuclear was is most likely to occur if one country thinks that it can defend itself against a nuclear attack while launching one. The US has been thinking that way since Reagan was in office.

    We are not invading for country dominance. We are fighting ALONG SIDE with those countries governments to destroy radicals WITHIN that country.

    well, I guess empire shouldn’t be committing the first offense by instigating, paying for, and backing a coup staged by neo Nazis, of a democratically elected president. And then when the predominant population of historically Slavic Crimeans voluntarily vote to annex from the Ukraine and join Russia , twist it all around through the mouthpiece of Western media and call it “Putin’s aggression”…A hemming in process in violation of specific treaties drawn up after the Berlin wall fell has been moving NATO “chess piece” nations closer and closer around one of the last remaining resource rich obstacles, besides China, before complete globalization: Russia…This is the end of the international community of sovereign nations ; here comes the NWO hegemony

  • Arthur Wilton

    A nuclear war is more likely to start by false alarms, by technical malfunction, and by panic than by careful calculation. The likelihood of accidental nuclear war rises greatly during times of tension between the US and Russia. This is a very good reason to keep tensions as low as possible.

  • Lollololololololol

    Remember were having issue with a country that is INVADING another country for no apparent reason……. your logic is invalid.

  • http://www.nato.int/ NATO loving trolls are morons

    This isn’t really news even. The Pentagon has always considered a first strike nuclear attack on multiple perceived enemies. That’s what makes the US government such a dangerous world terrorist.

  • Arthur Wilton

    We always set the start date of a crisis as being the time that best suits us. Russia was once the dominant power in the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact. Even then, according to the memoirs of Kremlin insider Yegor Ligachev, the Soviet leadership was quite afraid of NATO. After all, the Soviet Union had nearly been destroyed by Hitler’s invasion, and Russia had lost an earlier war against the Kaiser’s Germany.

    The Warsaw Pact and the Soviet Union disintegrated. Instead of leaving Russia alone, NATO marched right up to the Russian border, militarized Russia’s neighbors, and now plans to build an anti-missile system that will give us considerable control over Russian airspace.

    We should remember that during the Cuban Missile Crisis, the USA was legally entirely in the wrong. The Cuban Missiles were part of a perfectly legal agreement between two sovereign powers, the USSR and Cuba. However, they threatened to alter the balance of power, which we could not tolerate–regardless of the legalities. We asserted ourselves and nearly destroyed civilization in the process.

    Russia’s back is to the wall, and we should understand how dangerous that is. Those of us who criticize American policy in eastern Europe are not particularly happy about blaming our country. However, we are behaving recklessly, and if we don’t change, we may end up in the ionosphere.

  • Lollololololololol

    Well I think the whole plan would be to cripple them before they could retaliate.. that is why Russia gets so anzy about US deployments of shields and offensive capabilities right on there border in EUROPE because they know our technology is better and fear it could cripple them a defense

    Define winning a war? Were in there BACKYARD and have them hiding and not in control… for every 1 us soldier killed its estimated 1000 taliban are killed… we are not only winning were kicking there butts

  • Joe

    The USA has gone completely crazy to even think such a catastrophic suicidal attack! Of course Russia will simply stand by and count the incoming missiles. The USA has never felt war, but remember “What goes around comes around!” We have only fought against much weaker opponents not capable of hitting back, but RUSSIA, well that’s another story! This is GOP mentality, what little there is, probably McCain, a complete fool who should be caged and sent back to the Viet Kong for an update on his implanted chips!

  • Restlessgypsy

    And how many Russians died in the war against that same ragtag Taliban in Affganistan? then gave up and withdrew!
    You obviously forget that if a nuclear war broke out, Russia would also be a bowl of dust.

  • Lollololololololol

    Ridiculous, but true. Why do you think the USA articles released about US possibly deploying more offensive capabilities into Europe? That would be for the first strike capability in case they need it.

  • Luca Mazza

    This article is ridiculous

  • Javed Sultan

    Here is a question.. when US can’t win a war against ragtag Taliban or ISIS, how is it going to survive a war against Russia. I bet it won’t last a few minutes.. because Mr Putin has made it clear that any attack on Russia would trigger a massive nuclear attack on the enemy..

  • db

    US would have won regardless, the nukes simply shortened the war and believe it or not saved many lives on both sides.

    However we aren’t talking about history, we are talking about now…and in this you are simply wrong. The US would not launch a preemptive nuclear strike.

  • Jon Oullette

    “Considering that this option appears to be on the table, it has not unreasonably led some sources to describe the foreign policy of Washington and its NATO allies as staggeringly criminal and reckless”…(a quote from above)…um…y’think? The Headline to this article is ,with no exaggeration, synonymous with a headline which in more honest terms would read,” U.S. Considers Mass Involuntary Suicide For Every Man, Woman, Child , and 99% of all Life on Planet Earth”…Of course full nuclear exchange would be the result of these “Dr. Strangelove” sociopathic “leaders” dimwitted strategies. Nuclear winter , no survivors …very logical…and sick to the core…in “God” we trust but for the globacidal maniacs who would destroy creation

  • Restlessgypsy

    And that tension was justification for Russia to invade and annex Crimea? And for putin to continually arm and send troops to eastern Ukraine? A servile Junta? That’s a good one!

  • kejjer

    I don’t understand this article. There has been no discussion of using Nukes (PUBLICLY) anywhere by the USA in the last 20 plus years. (which leads me to think that this article is just used to incite the idiots.)

    Obama is afraid to use the military at all much less a Nuke –that is why he loves the drones so much–no political backlash from the public. That is why the rules of engagement are so strict–AVOID CIVILIAN CASUALTIES. I’m sure the USA generals have discussed it. They Always Discuss such matters. That is what they are paid for. But that is part of the regular planning by the US military. And any country with Nuclear weapons.

    Which is the problem–Russia is gobbling up its neighbors, China is claiming land in other countries economic zones. Radical Islam is threatening to wipe Israel off the map as they build nucear weapons and the other sect is cutting off peoples heads around the world. And yet All of you idiots seem to think the USA is the bad guy.

  • Javed Sultan

    If you attack Russia with nuclear bombs, they would attack you with massive nuclear bombs rain.. and there won’t be any USA. instead there would be a huge whole in which pacific and atlantic oceans will fill in…. So wake up.. Americans.. Zionist Jewish warmongers and leading you to complete destruction… US attacks only weak, poor countries.. which are already divided.. even then it loses..

  • Carl Nemo **==

    What’s tragic about countenancing nuclear war even on a theater basis is these ‘strategists’ are risking the lives of millions of innocent civilians without any risk to themselves. Even if a strategic nuclear war breaks out as a result these ‘pencil necked’ planners’ inept decision to tinker with the idea of IRBM exchanges, they will have access to bunkers with a ten year supply of food, entertainment and even dark pleasures of the flesh; I.E, comfort women at taxpayer/debtor expense while these same taxed citizens are reduced to shadows in ‘green glass’ outside, they’ll be partying hearty, going ‘oh well, bad call’ . / : | It’s disgusting that either side is planning such. V. Putin started this nuclear war rhetoric and it’s now reaching a frenzied level. The more there’s talk about such, the more the banal the end result will seem. Not so! The best policy is to send a communique to the Russians that if any nuclear weapons are deployed there will be no tactical response, but will immediately trigger a MAD (mutual assured destruction) reply. We should not be moving nukes into Europe other than to accomplish the content of such a communique. If the Russians nuke Kiev or any other city, it will call for a maximum, no holds barred strike. They have to realize it’s not a bluff and it shouldn’t be so. It needs to be sent to them via a signed Presidential communique that if Putin even so much as threatens the use of nukes again publicly, we’ll put all U.S. nuclear forces on a DEFCON 2 level with plans to go to level 1; I.E., “cocked trigger” which will get them to sit up in their chairs so to speak and to countenance their ruskie b.s. That’s the only way to deal with bullies, particularly Russians. This article leave me uneasy because it means the best intellects are not gaming this out property. Half step measures will get people killed unnecessarily. Needless to say nuclear warfare is not trivial business. It presages, nuclear holocaust; I.E. Armageddon! The end result, will be a nuclear winter, poisoned soils and not simply hundreds of millions dead, but billions due to the ravaging of crops in the northern hemisphere where 80% of the world’s population resides along with long term winter like, hazed atmospheric conditions. The remnant population will die of starvation, disease and physical violence at the hands of their fellow desperate survivors. The living shall envy the dead. Believe it…!

  • Daniel Barger

    The author of this trash is an idiot. There are no plausible realistic plans to use nuclear devices. There are ‘scenarios’ created by ‘wargamers’ whose job is to create and evaluate
    situations that may arise that the US may need to address. These ‘scenarios’ exist by the
    tens of thousands. Some of them involve the use of nuclear devices, by terrorists, by rogue nations like Pakistan or N.Korea and by a ‘superpower like the US or Russia. These plans however are not official policy, merely planning tools used by the military to judge where and how to make use of resources. The deployment and availability of nuclear devices is and has ALWAYS been a strategy for deterrence. And for it to be a deterrent the opposition must KNOW that the use of such devices is NOT a preferred method of action
    the use of these devices will ALWAYS be a possibility, otherwise they are just a waste of money and serve NO PURPOSE.

    This entire article is somewhat of a joke and hope people don’t read too much into it. The history of nuclear submarine missiles during the Cuban missile event is wrong completely. The Russian did, in fact, have very small nuclear torpedoes just as we had nuclear anti-aircraft missiles. Nuclear yes but, not the same as an ICBM and everyone always tries to get that spin on things. Perhaps read something more factual than this article. Of course, a nuclear strike by a nuclear armed country is always on the table otherwise there is no point in having them. A balance between deterrence and patience have always prevailed and, hopefully, always will.

    If there is a WW3, it will most likely be started by the US since nobody else in the world with the right mind talk about nuclear attack plans. That’s when the rest of the world will eventually come together to fight the US to submission like what happened to Germany at WW2.

    America should be ready to respond quickly and forcefully in the instance that Russia fires nuclear missiles, but should disavow any first use of such weapons. Russia is no match to the US/NATO conventionally, and if Putin was to make the mistake of using nukes, America must be ready to respond with devastating force. Let’s just hope and pray that good judgment and common sense prevail.

    Pretty sure bombers are not the only delivery method; subs, silos to name a couple. Why would you have anything on alert status when you would be making a pre-emptive strike in the first place, especially with the open skies treaty and satelites.

  • dmm1047

    What’s interesting is that this country hasn’t produced anything, that we know of, since the now retired F-117 in 1981 and the B-2 in 1989. Is it strange that nothing new of any consequence, again, that we know of, has been wheeled out in the last 25+ years since those dates? All but 5 of our bomber bases have been closed down, with 3 of those bases in the southern half of the country. This makes no sense at all. It would take hours for them just to get out of the country, should they be needed in case of war. None of the existing bomber bases show any evidence of Alert status, as they did back in the 60’s/70’s when I was stationed at a SAC base and worked in an Alert B-52 facility, so I know what to look for. My point is this. Based on what I’ve just said and with all the technology that we hope we’re unaware that we possess, we had better have something super secret warming up in the bullpen—just in case Russia does do something stupid or this country is in deep do-do. Sub and land based missiles might not be enough.

    A good deal of information has come out that shows the Japanese were not ready to surrender. In fact, it was the Soviet invasion of Manchuria that would be the ultimate factor in Japan suing for peace, not the atomic bomb. The bomb was an excuse that allowed the Japanese to save face. The last thing Japan wanted was a partial Soviet occupastion of the home islands. Thus, surrendering to the Americans was the best option.

    History professor Robert James Maddox wrote:

    Another myth that has attained wide attention is that at least several of Truman’s top military advisers later informed him that using atomic bombs against Japan would be militarily unnecessary or immoral, or both. There is no persuasive evidence that any of them did so. None of the Joint Chiefs ever made such a claim, although one inventive author has tried to make it appear that Leahy did by braiding together several unrelated passages from the admiral’s memoirs. Actually, two days after Hiroshima, Truman told aides that Leahy had ‘said up to the
    last that it wouldn’t go off.’

    Neither MacArthur nor Nimitz ever communicated to Truman any change of mind about the need for invasion or expressed reservations about using the bombs. When first informed about their imminent use only days
    before Hiroshima, MacArthur responded with a lecture on the future of atomic warfare and even after Hiroshima strongly recommended that the invasion go forward. Nimitz, from whose jurisdiction the atomic strikes
    would be launched, was notified in early 1945. ‘This sounds fine,’ he told the courier, ‘but this is only February. Can’t we get one sooner?’

    The best that can be said about Eisenhower’s memory is that it had become flawed by the passage of time.

    Notes made by one of Stimson’s aides indicate that there was a discussion of atomic bombs, but there is no mention of any protest on Eisenhower’s part

    Why are there so many ostensibly “financial” web sites on the internet these days that are essentially just camouflage for right-wing nutcake “news”? Please note that the author of this “piece” lists as his first and best qualification, that he plays video games. Therefore, take this little screed for what it’s worth: nothing.

    When the Cold War ended, there was finally a chance for peace. The Clinton bombed Serbia and starved half a million Iraq children to death, Bush totally destroyed Iraq and now Obama has tried to do to Syria what Bush did to Iraq. He also started the tension with Russia by hiring a rent-a-mod to overthrow the democratically elected president of Ukraine and replace it with a servile junta.

    I think it is very important that Putin and even the rest of the world know and understand that we will always be ready to use a nuclear weapon should a situation calls for it. It is also important for Putin to understand that he alone isn’t the only one or nation that can threaten the first use of a nuclear weapon. It is about time that the United States made such a statement too!

  • Zach

    Attacking Russia preemptively with nuclear weapons would be insane, yes. But saying that you would consider using them is only saying what is obvious. The U.S. has owned nuclear weapons since the 1940’s, and why have and make them if you would never consider using them? The threat of nuclear war was a deterrent to Russia throughout the cold war, just like it is now. Putin has threatened the same thing. The question is who is more insane? Obama? or Putin?

  • John Chakarian

    The nuclear war already happened in 2012. we are all dead this is not real nothing you see is real we are already dead……lol!

    The exceptional people are the American people. Defined not by the outliers of our society, but by the normalcy of Americans. The normal American is independent of thought and very gentle towards others who may need some help. We are slow to rouse, but are quick to help or fight. While our excellent military has protected us from gross injustice, I have seen the injustice meted out to other populations by their governments. I would not choose to be in or do business in a country where there was no justice against someone like Putin, Xi, or Obama. Meaning I will not be visiting Russia or China soon.

  • Joel Trevino

    How can a nuclear option be on the table when it was NEVER off of it? Not even in the friendlier days of Bill and Boris, was the nuclear option taken off the table. MAD is still the name of the game, when it comes to nuclear strikes. There is no such thing as a strategic strike. Once that bag of chips is opened, no one will be able to stop at just one.

  • who_earn_it

    Ooops!!! I just Farted does it smell like Flowers or Nuke Dust

  • Joel Trevino

    This is wrong. For a nuclear strike to be an option now, it would have had to not be an option at some time and as far as I know, that state NEVER has existed between the two states, not even in the friendlier days of Clinton and Boris Yeltsin. MADD still is the order of the day for nuclear exchanges. There is no such thing as a strategic nuclear strike. Once that bag of chips is opened, no one will stop at just one.

    Why not having a new nuclear war? If a nuclear weapon shortens a war, then use it again. Nuclear war will last only a week. If 300 million people will perish, no problem, the war would be short nevertheless.

  • Maria Adams

    The American people are REVISIONISTS regarding the rationalizations for using Atomic bombs on Japan. (from the memoirs of WWII generals and admirals): #1) *Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz* : “The Japanese had, in fact, already sued
    for peace. The atomic bomb played no decisive part, from a purely military point of view, in the defeat of Japan.”

    #2) *Fleet Admiral William D. Leahy* : “The use of [the atomic bombs] at Hiroshima and Nagasaki was of no material assistance in our war against Japan. The Japanese were already defeated and ready to surrender because of the effective sea blockade and the successful bombing with conventional weapons…The lethal possibilities of atomic warfare in the future are frightening. My own feeling was that in being the first to use it, we had adopted an ethical standard common to the barbarians of the Dark Ages. I was not taught to make war in that fashion, and wars cannot be won by destroying women and children.”

    #3) *Dwight D. Eisenhower* : “In 1945 Secretary of War Stimson, visiting my
    headquarters in Germany, informed me that our government was preparing
    to drop an atomic bomb on Japan. I was one of those who felt that there
    were a number of cogent reasons to question the wisdom of such an act.
    During his recitation of the relevant facts, I had been conscious of a
    feeling of depression and so I voiced to him my grave misgivings, first
    on the basis of my belief that *Japan was already defeated and that
    dropping the bomb was completely unnecessary, and secondly because I
    thought that our country should avoid shocking world opinion by the use
    of a weapon whose employment was, I thought, no longer mandatory as a
    measure to save American lives.*”

    #4) *The 1946 United States Strategic Bombing Survey* : “Nevertheless, it seems clear that, even
    without the atomic bombing attacks, air supremacy over Japan could have
    exerted sufficient pressure to bring about unconditional surrender and
    obviate the need for invasion. Based on a detailed investigation of all
    the facts, and supported by the testimony of the surviving Japanese
    leaders involved, it is the Survey’s opinion that certainly prior to 31
    December 1945, and in all probability prior to 1 November 1945, Japan
    would have surrendered even if the atomic bombs had not been dropped,
    even if Russia had not entered the war, and even if no invasion had been
    planned or contemplated.

    Moreover , Mr Space Invader C. Morris the questions remains

    Would I go into combat …I don’t think so…You would get some of us killed with the whining you present. I may have been 18 yrs of age but working in the Orphanages I heard in may occasions others soldiers would say I would rather pull guard duty at night than work ( …i.e. Work?, its building swings, Teeder toders ,wood beds,tin roofs, Space ships with slides with a rocket wheel at top..etc..) among the kids…How can i go into combat with a broken heart…????

    What I learn was the “”Parents of theses soldiers make them men”””. They are parents they are ‘true hero’s’ I saw so many GI”s weep and these were real men who can kill in a heartbeat and would run from a crying child when ask where is my parents???? .and i met them all and they were the same from 173 airborne rd to 101 airborne to the 4th infantry to 5th Mech DMZ to Americal Div. to Marines…I know we flew most to the air recon for those divisions from I corp to 2 corp from Dong Ha to to Bu Prang..etc….

    So what do you know Mr space invader? Have you ever held a 5 year little girl or boy crying where are my parents sisters and brothers..and then have a group like 6 or better most all that young and your old 18 yrs of age not that far where the memory is fresh in terms of years…

    Don’t get me started on Cambodia…or I will be label as being hawkish..Right my Mr Space Invader..go back to you games and bar the freedom we gave you ( Leave men to men …men )…and you gave what..a score of what? Now many invaders you killed?

    Russia’s view of national security is to conquer and keep an iron grip on its neighboring countries to maintain a buffer zone between possible hostile forces and itself. This doctrine of conquest and influence has been Russia’s national security doctrine for centuries, which is why Russia is such a large country, as Imperial Russia only stopped its expansion when met with substantial resistance (Germany in Europe, Ottoman Empire in the Middle East, China and Japan in Asia). This is also why the Soviet Union annexed so many of its neighboring countries (often against their will). The Baltic nations and Poland understand this doctrine of Russia only too well, which is why they did whatever it took to become members of NATO, so that they can remain independent countries.

  • UpLateAgain

    Actually, even with their limited defense spending, NATO is considerably larger than Russia militarily. It will take the Russians five years of building at their current rate to come up to NATO numbers in troop strength. Which is why Russia has of late been threatening nuclear attack about every ten minutes. They can take the armies of their bordering states (such as Ukraine) without too much difficulty is they decide to go full scale, but they are in trouble if NATO gets involved. They’re threatening nuke strikes so that NATO will view the potential cost of such involvement too great.

    I love China but it is run by the communist party and not by the people themselves. The leader of China is interested in consolidating his power and the power of the state. Xi is determined to challenge any constraints on his power. Unfortunately we must act to contain this thug. It so happens that because of mismanagement and failure by the communists that the country is on the verge of economic collapse. It would be much better if a stock market crash in China and a subsequent depression sow the seeds of revolution. However if Xi continues to play Hitler against his neighbors there will be a war. If Xi thinks he can contain the war to a fist fight he is a fool. A fist fight becomes a knife fight. A knife fight a gun fight. A gun fight becomes nuclear. But we can not allow a bully. We will stand against them. Give me liberty or give me death. One can not call the defender of liberty immoral; the title belongs to the bullies.

    The Russians have been saying their using of nukes in is a viable option for over a year now. Did they really think making such threats would be answered by us backing down to them? They are the ones who started beating their swords against their shields in the nuke arena. Even with Obama in the White House, I’d have been stunned if this didn’t become the response. The quickest way to guarantee war is to show weakness. Always has been. Like Reagan said, “No country has ever been attacked because it was too strong.”

Get some smarts before you post comments.

  • Truth Matters

    You are right. Sadly, America is NOT a conquering nation. We spill our
    blood then leave the battlefield to those with whom we handed their rear
    ends to. We did remain in Japan and West Germany after WWII where we
    implemented the Marshall Plan. However, in Japan we also allowed the
    Emporer to continue on and in Germany we allowed the Soviets to build
    the “Iron Curtain” Berlin Wall. Both nations, Japan and Germany thrived
    economically with heavy western capitalist influence. Our big mistake
    is that WE do NOT CONQUER and keep nations after we send our military
    into battle. That malkes the great sacrifice of sending our brothers
    into battle a worthless venture. To add insult to injury, whether you
    agreed with the Iraq invasion or not, we lost almost 5000 American lives
    in battle there only to have this US government allow that nation to
    fall back into enemy hands (ISIS). That is insane. We run around the
    world calling ourselves “liberators” from Marxist Communist and Islamic
    influence which is fine and dandy but we are not respected for all we do
    for the less fortunate who fell to the Communists, Nazis, Fascists and
    radical Islamic 7th century butchers. All other Empires in history had
    an eye to subjugating and owning the nations they won war against. We
    should never enter into another war UNLESS it is to CONQUER that land
    and make them American English speaking adopted states. To the victor
    goes ALL the spoils of war!

I am not saying we will shoot down every missile shot at the USA,but we will get most of them! We would win a nuclear war with China or Russia or both at once if we had to,and they both know it.If either one through they could take us,they would have attaked already

    I love this country but also understand that while we really should be proud of what the Government of China and India have done our government has become fearful and fear begets hate and hate begets war. Many are clueless to the fact that in both cases those countries took our model and molded it to one that worked for them and have raised the standard of living 10 fold and are now strong economic and world forces. Our government chose to destroy our manufacturing base in that regulations got so it made it impossible for businesses to make money here. the result, they went else where. Our nation has been broke for atleast four years and Instead of doing what was right, our government created a nation of sheep and have been slowly moving us to the edge of the cliff. In October the IMF is set to announce the replacement of the World currency, when that happens due to our financial position of having no reserves, our money will be worthless and civil chaos will erupt. they know this and that is the real reason for JAde Helm. it is a dry practice run for the real thing coming soon.

    Considers? We backed out of a key treaty so as to be able to launch a preemptive nuke strike. Since 1989 we have put missiles on Russia’s doorstep. Would we freak if Russia were to return to Cuba and reposition missiles? Or plant some in countries in South and Central America that have good relations with Russia? The return to Cuba by Obama is nothing but a Risk maneuver to forestall Russia’s return and means nothing for the Cubans. In 1898 Cuba learned all it wanted to learn about the U.S. of A.
    Neocons in this administration, left overs from previous administrations, have been itching for a great battle against Russia.

  • Kenneth Bittala

    Authoritarian governments are defensive? No, they’re not. They are more willing to go to war. China and Russia have been nothing but aggressive, they want to expand. Democracies are far from aggressive and do not seek to expand. The reason why they appear to be aggressive is because of the various conflicts they involve themselves with. But most of those conflicts consist of a group of people within a nation wanting to be free from their oppressive government, these people want democracy too. And so of course we’re going to get involved and try to help them, as we ourselves, are democracies. And yes, Hitler was elected into office, because he manipulated the people, you know what he did after that? He turned the government into a Dictatorship.

The real winner would be countries like Brazil and other So American counties who would take over the economic kingship of the world that is still able to function. My opinion on a nuke war is this; America, Southern border of Canada, U K, Australia and a few others burning in ash.. Russia, China, and No Korea gone. NATO as a force left in ashes.So Korea and Japan burning but should prevail after a massive clean up.Israel destroys all its enemies in the Middle East and will suffer a blow but will recover and have their sovereignty enlarged to unexpected territorial right’s. The world will watch the powers that are reduced to ash and for awhile be happy that no longer do they have power mongers over them.Many will say..Finally we have true Peace and Security…Just my thought’s but as we taught ones know, Any thing is Possible when the first country power lets go of the buttons that send their nukes heaven bound….May God Help us all!

  • Bill

    Depending on where you’re located during a nuclear war, you may find yourself very fortunate. The United States government would become so small, it would no longer be a controlling factor. There’s a good possibility the government would no longer be accepted by the people due to the nuclear engagement and new leaderships would be springing up against the government. I honestly think there would be a civil war within our own country. I would assume land grabbing, would be a common practice. Even with all the death and destruction, there would be some kind of golden ring around that cloud for some of the few that will be left.

  • okulus

    The proposal was for deployment of the missiles to forward locations in Europe, not for launch and use of the missiles, although their deployment necessarily should also envision circumstances where the missiles would be used in military strikes. Disarmament has always been conditional to mutual terms and the possibility for re-armament exists whenever one side behaves in bad faith or in a manner that increases threats to the other.

  • Vincent P. Tobias

    The estimated cost of nuclear war and winter was clearly and succinctly put with its associated risks as follows:
    “There is a range of possible outcomes of nuclear war, each with an associated risk. The risk, in the simplest terms, can be estimated as the probability that the event occurs multiplied by its cost–cost in lives, in misery, in lost knowledge, in the destroyed artifacts of our cultures and the sensibility of our civilization, cost measured by any standard that we like.”
    Carl Sagan and Richard Turco, authors of “A Path Where No Man Thought: Nuclear Winter and the End of the Arms Race”
    (NY:Random House, 1990),81.

    There is no point in discussing this issue. Russia has already made their decision to use first strike nuclear weapons so that anything less from the West would be suicide.

    Your numbers & figures are LIES! I don’t have the time to debunk all of your points, but allow me to reference a couple. One example, a 10,000 point loss in the stock market?!?!?!? Since I can assume you’re referencing the DOW, the highest point (pre-recession) was approximately 14,000 in Oct. ’07. At the very low point of the recession, it was approximately 7,500 in Mar. ’09. I don’t know what kind of math you’re doing, but that doesn’t = 10,000 points. Another asinine point is the Madoff ponzi scheme. His scheme started prior to ’99 in the Clinton years. But more importantly to that point…HE WAS A DEMOCRAT!!!!! You sir are stupid at best.

  • Patti D Cirko

    In Reality, it would go something like this; Whom ever fires first would never see the results of the launch and vis versa. As both Nations would be wiped off the face of the earth and would most likely lead to a slow and painful death for the rest of the human race. The bombings of Japan cost hundred and thousands of innocent people their lives and to this day impacts generations. It is futile to argue right or wrong in regards to this. However, we must never ever forget that the bombs dropped on Japan were firecrackers in comparison to the devastation that the nuclear weapons of today would have. you see..if you survived the initial blast, the after effects would take care of that. The term used to describe civil casualties is collateral damage. proof that no government really gives a damn about those that have no choice, a sick world indeed. Lastly, as I said before, as soon as the launch was detected, the other would launch, both nations would be gone. Come to think of it, all the China and Iran has to do is sit tight and hope this plays out. .. would be one quick way of getting rid of the great satan as we are called without them lifting a hand

    :/ A nuclear war should NEVER be on the table, unless it’s in response to a nuclear attack. If the US and Russia both refuse to use nukes first there is no risk of a nuclear war, however, this may just be a way to scare Russia rather than a serious consideration.

    Nuke option ? As compared to what ? Talking or negotiations where actual diplomacy and face to face talks that are conducted like a civilized nation is supposed to do ? Nuke strike options are fear mongering at best.The nuke option is never an option and would be the beginning of the end.The only ones to survive would inherit a bleak future- short lived- at best.Anyone who could think that this would be an option is talking pure fantasy and insanity for sure.If anything were to be an option it should be to De-nuke this entire planet and start looking forward rather than behind us.We can and we are finding other less destructive energy alternatives and could do away with large stock piles of radioactive materials and could conceivably try to guarantee a better brighter future for those who inherit this world.We need to get away from this war mentality and these war based economies that we have and reinvent ourselves as a species.We as a species have great potential and can do many great things if we set our goals high and work together rather than fight against each other for dominance of a world that we ALL share together.Some would say my ideas are not realistic and this is just the way the world is and that we are doomed to destroy ourselves.I’m a parent and also enjoy life.I try to see the cup half full, rather than half empty, and tend to think our best days are still ahead of us .

    Actually it’s not my interpretation. There have been several scholars that have understood this to be America.

If you google as I suggested you can listen to a 2 1/2 hour presentation. He gives 33 major scriptural references that seem to indicate America. Judgment is coming to America. Prove it to yourself listen or google and read the book online or read the scriptures. The book can be read at Steve Quayle’s website in the archives for the date May 14, 2014. I have been telling people for over twenty years I believe that Russia destroys us, but the clearer picture is that the Lord opens his Arsenal from Heaven and does the work and Russia and Iran (Ezekiel 38:5 ..they changed their name from Persia to Iran in 1935, I believe). I also believe that Russia and Iran pile on in this destruction? The Lord executes the Judgment… Either way Judgment is coming, and you can say at least I was told!!!!

  • Jimbo Jimmy

    Oh for Pete’s sake. The link may lead to Global Research, but the source article for this is World Socialist Web Site. All they do is dog on Western countries. The article says its source for the idea of nuking Russia came from a report by the Associated Press, but it doesn’t link to said report. A search of AP releases for this document turns up nothing. For all we know, the whole thing was made up.

  • daftK

    There would be no one to buy the cheap shatty stuff they make though

  • RP8677

    This report is very biased. It is important to note that the Pentagon’s decision to reconsider the use of nuclear weapons is a direct result of Russia changing its own strategic directives regarding the use of nuclear weapons, mainly that the Russian military now has authorization to use nuclear weapons even in the context of conventional warfare. Basically, Russia has changed its own doctrine from one of retaliation in the event of nuclear strike by America to one of preemptive strike, where Russia will use nuclear weapons first. Putin himself has even said that, had NATO sent troops to help Ukraine fight Russia in the Crimea, he would have been willing to use nuclear weapons in order to keep the Crimea out of NATO hands. The fact that Russia’s leader is willing to deploy this sort of nuclear scorched earth policy over territorial disputes and conventional warfare is shocking, and this, along with more aggressive Russian actions in the Baltics, are factors that compelled the US to consider a more aggressive nuclear doctrine.

    “U.S. Considers Nuclear Strikes As An Option Against Russia [REPORT]”
    One of many stupid warmongering articles used in US propaganda.
    US now created so many enemies for itself and by itself: Iran, N.Korea, ISIS, Russia, China. Isn’t it enough?
    And not saying about the existence of myriad of previously existed terrorist organizations:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_designated_terrorist_organizations
    Stupid and arrogant is playing nuclear games with Russia. Maybe US will destroy Russia, But US, Europe will be destroyed either. And only imbeciles and retarded, like our politicians can even talk about using nuclear power.
    Most likely Russia’s economy is weak and underdeveloped. But they have enough nuclear power enough to destroy West.
    If Ukraine is the issue I can tell that Ukraine is one of the most corrupted countries in the world and some lost part of the ukrainian territory is not the occasion to start the WW III.
    For West is just enough to drop the price of the oil and Russia will fall down on it’s knees without any stupid western rhetoric. Just simple like that.

    your putin has been insulting everyone by invading and occupying Ukraine. And your putin also has boasted that he’s got nukes.

  • wjp1940

    Some argue in hindsight that the use of nukes against Japan were not necessary. How nice it is to sit back and not have to make the decisions Truman had to make.
    .
    And the ultra lefties also claim we nuked Japan instead of Germany because the Germans were white. As with all ultras , the truth never trumps their views. Like the fact that Germany had unconditionally surrendered before the nukes were ever tested.
    .
    The reality is that the use of nukes has to be discussed at the highest levels. Better to discuss it than do it. Plus if Putin was convinced the USA would not use nukes, we could expect him to launch a full scale attack. Putin and his cronies need to know the USA is prepared to nuke them to keep them honest.

    Another scare tactic by the media. Why thank a Russian admiral for stopping the nuclear crisis during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Kennedy and the United States Navy did that. Kennedy warned Khrushchev any more nuclear tipped missiles that entered Cuban waters would be considered an clear act of war against the United States and that he would not hesitate to use them. He ordered elements of the Atlantic Fleet to intercept Russian ships carrying missiles and tell to turn back or they would be sunk. I know. I was there! What was said in this article I am sure happened but no Russian submarine would ever had been able to launch it’s missiles because a US Navy destroyer as well as aerial anti-submarine elements were right on top of them and they were also told that upon even hearing a ballistic missile hatch opening, a torpedo door opening they would be dead in seconds. We agreed in the end to remove our nuclear missiles from Turkey as long as Russia removed theirs from Cuba. So ended that immediate and very real crisis. After that there have been many, many times that both governments threatened to launch it’s nuclear capability against each other. Most Americans, as well as Russians and the rest of the world never heard of those confrontations. If the United States had invaded North Viet-Nam or Laos during the Viet-Nam War Communist China threatened to unleash it’s nuclear capability against the US and allied troops in Viet-Nam. They pulled no bones about it. There are countries in this world that are considered “Buffer Countries” between nuclear powers and the rest of the world on the three major continents of North America, Europe, and Asia. For any nation to invade any of those countries is considered an act of war against their nuclear neighbor. Only India and Pakistan have no buffer countries and they have come so close to launching against each other it has become routine. But! Will it ever happen? Unlike the old days when wars were fought to protect freedom and to win Japan pretty much ended that in 1945..Korea was the next major “Buffer Country War” and China did not have nuclear weapons so they also invaded North Korea to stop the N.A.T.O. advance. Don’t forget that MacArthur and Truman both considered the use of nuclear weapons in that war against China. It didn’t happen because Russia threatened to use their nuclear weapons against us.Nuclear war is a useless war because nobody ends. It is nothing but a Revenge War that is unfruitful to the world besides the aggressors. I’m not saying it can’t happen because some idiot somewhere just might push that button. If that do. Don’t worry. Be happy. Because you won’t be around much longer not to be.

    We certainly aren’t safe. But it is also clear that you are a retro thinker. You focused on the kinetic missile portion of the layered defense, which is the smallest and least important leg of the preemptive strike triad. The most important layer as I thought I got across with my statement that most of the Russian nuclear birds will never fly is the cyber element. Algorithm viruses sit undetected on command and control computers and launch computers and in missile guidance computers that monitor what the problem solving element is doing and when it doesn’t like what it sees it disables the computer. I am always amazed at how behind the times Americans are when it comes to advanced military capabilities. You can believe what you want to believe. You can believe in the old MAD days and 1990s technology if that suits you. I’ll live and work in the 21st century and the current threats.

    I believe that America the Babylon is destroyed in “One Hour’s Time”…Read Jeremiah 50-51, Revelation 17-18, Isaiah 13, 14, 18 and 47 etc etc. America has aborted 55-60 million babies, the Supreme Court will probably condone homosexual marriage by the end of June, and America is leaving the Apple of God’s Eye Israel hanging, particularly when it comes to the dividing of the Land into a two state solution. America is striving against the Lord. There are two phrases which are used in Jeremiah that Rabbis have for centuries understood to be a young nation, an end time nation, the last of the great nations “Hindermost of the Nations”. The other phrase is “the Hammer of the earth is broken” and my understanding is that this is an idiom for the Policeman of the world. She sits on many water, she is an immigrant nation with a large Jewish population, she is rich beyond measure, and she is destroyed in a surprise attack, and in One Hour’s Time great riches come to nothing. Google R A Coombes “America the Babylon” and listen to a presentation given in 1998. There are many characteristics that are given in these scriptures, and one would be hard pressed not to see America? Believe me this is the short version… Your only hope is 1 Corinthians 15:1-4

    Well, thanks for the memo, I’m going to cancel my life insurance, for who will be there to collect, when I’m sure that as ash Wednesday says: “”Earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust”, there won’t be anyone alive to collect. If Obama thinks that he and his family will be safe for the father of all bombs, maybe he could buy my bridge over the River Kwai, or the Brooklyn bridge.
    When people make headlines like these, what does Obama think the Russians are doing? I think people who say Obama is intelligent are too kind, for his actions speak louder that he is as stupid as that retard pervert from Texas, AKA GWB, that believe the war in Iraq, which BTW was an illegal war, would be over in two, three months, certainly not over six months, and look how reality came to bite America’s ass. And if on top of that, we see that the most powerful nation in the world had to pay its enemies not to attack that “powerful” nation, he has to be, again, on drugs.
    It’s scary to hear him, after all the problems associated with previous wars that now he is planning to go after the big kahuna.
    Napoleon believe also that Russia was apiece of cake, so did the Nazis, the most powerful nation on Earth, even by today standards, and may I remind Obama that according to historians and military experts of allies and Russians, it was Russia that defeated the Nazis. Not England and his homosexual “scientist”, nor America’s power, but Russia’s power. Stop this Dr. Strangelove complex, you are going to kill us all. If is too scare Putin, maybe you are playing with fire, for if Putin goes, what do you think will happen to Washington, America? Stop this the sky will fall stupidity to the nth degree, before you get us all killed.

    To all of you that believe that authoritarian governments are more willing to go to war, please understand this is not true. Democracies are far more willing to sustain aggressive wars because the population becomes asset bound to the government. With tyrant governments they need to be careful when they use power because their legitimacy comes at the understanding the population has no real investment in ensuring the government’s survival other then coercion. When leading an aggressive war, democracies don’t have that constraint because the population has an tangible interest in ensuring the government does not change. So if you see modern history since the emergence of democracy, you see an increase in conflict initiated by democracies against authoritarian governments. However democracies have less conflict with other democracies. The concept of a defensive war is interesting, as it is actually authoritarian governments that are typically defensive. Elected governments get elected on promises of expansion and prosperity. One way to ensure both is war. We live in a world of preemptive war by Bush in Iraq, and Afghanistan, the wars in the Former Yugoslavia, Sri Lanka, Northern Ireland, the Sudan, all examples of Democracies going to war. So please understand history before you make absolute statements. It benefits Russia and China to never go to war with anybody. It benefits the United States to resolve conflict with the use of force because that is the one thing the U.S. holds an asymmetrical advantage over the rest of the world in. China would rather use economic and political warfare to expand. The U.S. is the only one who benefits from going to war in regards to the major powers. Even Hitler was elected into office.

    Our Government is too busy implementing the “Sodomite Religion State” corrupting churches with pagan preachers, corrupting schools, the Boy Scouts and persecuting Christians. Putin is being persecuted for being a Christian just as they are doing here. Lets focus on the real problems with our pagan government. The Supreme Court supports corruption and terrorist antireligious activity. Fact, Clinton cronies obstruct federal lawsuits. See how Clinton cronies obstruct the biggest pro se lawsuit in U.S. history. Google “meiervmeggs” (just highlight what is in quotes and click your browser) you can read the petition to the U.S. Supreme Court which includes kidnappings, beatings, extortion and more. You will never read anything like it in your life. You can read the actual petition on the web site and before you do, you must realize, the Department of Justice and all defendants “admitted” all of it; you can even read the waivers. If you want to see how Christians are persecuted by the pagan government, and see how our government really operates this is it. You will never see anything like it in your life.

So if you see modern history since the emergence of democracy, you see an increase in conflict initiated by democracies against authoritarian governments. However democracies have less conflict with other democracies. The concept of a defensive war is interesting, as it is actually authoritarian governments that are typically defensive. elected governments get elected on promises of expansion and prosperity. One way to ensure both is war. We live in a world of preemptive war by Bush in Iraq, and Afghanistan, the wars in the Former Yugoslavia, Sri Lanka, Northern Ireland, the Sudan, all examples of Democracies going to war. So please understand history before you make absolute statements. It benefits Russia and China to never go to war with anybody. It benefits the United States to resolve conflict with the use of force because that is the one thing the U.S. holds an asymmetrical advantage over the rest of the world in. China would rather use economic and political warfare to expand. The U.S. is the only one who benefits from going to war in regards to the major powers.

    US is only country on face of earth that used nuclear weapons against civilian population of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan. Now US has a real chance to taste their medicine on themselves.

    Much as I do not endorse the threat or consideration of the possibility of a nuke war, I think Russia should be told in clear terms that it is not in any wise invincible. Whilst not endorsing any suggestion of a nuke war still, I think there is a misplacement of priority to an extent. I think the threat of a harsh action (not nuclear though) should have been put across to Iran long before now instead of the apparent efforts at appeasing the Mullah.

    First nuke that hits Russia will initiate a full scale nuclear counterattack resulting in essentially the entire planet’s destruction and quite possibly the extinction of the entire human species along with countless others.

There is 2 major things that will hold this back. 1) Obama is on vacation so nothing will happen. 2) If the world thought that they could win a all out war with us then they would have done it already.

    Aggressive war has never been the business of democracies. War (other than the defensive wars) has always been a foreign policy by other means of tyrant governments. Russia and China are now the new powerful tyrant states and so very dangerous and unpredictable in their international relations and new international order. To avoid an all out war, and thus a nuclear warfare the best strategy seems to be to get rid of those tyrant governments together with their bully personalities by any means possible than using a catastrophic bomb to destroy humanity & civilization as we know it.

    The Pentagon is a big place and a lot of people work there. They have to have a plan in place for every type of war imaginable. You can be sure that there’s even someone there working on the plans for a nuclear war with Canada – simply because it’s there. So the fact that there’s someone in the Pentagon working on a plan for nuclear war with Russia is neither surprising nor worrisome.

    From what the experts say , Russia is technologically far ahead of the US in missile tech, so the US would be committing a major nuclear blunder. The Russian s-400 and s-500 systems are quite capable of preventing ICBM’s from reaching targets in Russia, but Russian supersonic nuclear cruise missiles are a cinch to obliterate US targets.

  • David Crosby

    Of course, a preemptive nuclear strike is on the table. The US always maintains contingency plans for every scenario so they can be pulled when needed, quickly tweaked, and executed. The US is moving more and more away from MAD and toward a preemptive nuclear strike strategy. It is not criminal nor reckless. Current computer viruses and other technical means allow us to know when Russian command and control is about to launch a nuclear strike. At that time, a preemptive strike would be initiated. The author’s premise that this would lead to millions of dead Americans is incorrect. It would lead to millions of dead Russians to be sure. The preemptive strike would begin based on Russian actions not American ones. Previously and undetectable viruses would recognize what the Russian computer’s algorithm was doing and immediately execute and render it a brick. Most of the Russian nuclear birds will never fly. Those that did would be knocked down by kinetic strike missiles and electro-magnetic weapons. The reason the US is moving toward this strategy is cost. We simply do not have enough money to build enough missiles to shoot down all the Russian missiles we face. So we are moving to a cheaper and more effective layered preemptive nuclear strike strategy. The cyber portion is already missile capable, the kinetic strike missiles are mission capable but not sufficient in number or cost effective and will remain just one small component of the layered defense, and electro-magnetic weapons are now coming out of the lab and becoming operational. They will provide an important element of America’s new strategy.
    Russia has only itself to blame. It believes that limited nuclear war is something it can use and win using. America is just adjusting to that reality.

    War has never been the answer to solving a problem, and a Nuclear war leaves more problems than it could ever resole.

    I would have thought the use of such weapons on Japan and the peace time accidents at three mile Island, Chernobyl and again in Japan the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear plant would have taught a lesson strong enough to disarm and abolish all nuclear weapons world wide. But then there would be the few including the USA who would still keep a secret arsenal as a threat.

  • http://www.warmonitor.net John

    I read the source article (Global Research), which is VERY one sided in favor of Russia, it borderline’s propaganda. The intitial reporter was the associated press, and it simply said it may place missiles in Europe, which is something that we’ve been doing for years. They are intended to take out Russian nukes in the event Russia performs a first strike, or the US sees signs that they are going to perform a first strike. This is the type of stuff that happens in a cold war, which we are in now. I’m not saying a real war won’t happen, but I am saying that these type of articles really blow things out of proportion.

    Value Walk and Global Research are the only ones doing the fear mongering, every other report acts as if the world will end by tomorrow morning. These “tabloids” take words out of context from real news sources in order to scare people enough to be drawn to the site and click on their ads. They will take just part of a quote, and base an entire story around it with no supporting evidence whatsoever.

  • Richard Levine

    One commenter mentioned MAD (mutually assured destruction) and is probably correct even with the reduced nuclear arsenals and a number of weapons which probably would not work due to deterioration from age. Such talk is insane, and should be reserved for the secret discussions of a Dr. Strangelove. Remember the Czar Bomba that Russia reduced from its 100 megaton capacity to 50 megatons during the Cold War for a test firing. They were afraid what this one nuclear weapon might do to the planet if tested at full capacity. I believe that the largest nuclear weapons of the US were only 9 megatons. Imagine what they have today, multiple warheads and possibly firing them from space. First strike on them or the Chinese would probably not protect us from retaliation as their mobile weapons are moved around the country, and supposedly in the case of the Chinese moved around underground. The scenario in the article would probably lead to the end of the world as we know it. Such an attack would probably fulfill the supposed goal of the supposed Illuminati to thin the population by billions of people. It would also probably not leave much very much useful infrastructure behind.

  • Bob Monteleone

    What could possible go wrong? Russia is going to it idly by and let us nuke them??? What are these clowns thinking? What possibly is about the Ukraine or anywhere else in eastern Europe is of such strategic interest to the US that we would risk nuclear war over it? I don’t get it. The best course of action is continued sanctions to hurt the Russian economy. That pressure we must keep up and continue to have Western allies with us doing the same. Of course, we MUST remain nuclear ready as defense but NOT as an offense or “preemptive” strike.

    How has our military intervention in the middle east worked out? Or, for that matter, Vietnam? Given our “great” track record in recent decades, to think nuclear is the gravest of follies. Instead of just leaving without accomplishing much as we’ve recently done, we’re likely to be annihilated or at least gravely injured as a nation. While expensive, recent wars have not hurt us much. A nuclear conflict could change all that for the worst.

The deaths rally more people against the current Ukrainian government. The far-right groups/neo-nazis/Right Sector emerge as the pro-Western supporters. They burn people alive and shoot a pregnant russian woman who is on fire.
    2) US sponsors and props up “our people” (Nuland) government in Ukraine.
    3) Eastern Ukraine disagrees. Crimea leaves. Eastern Ukraine declares independence.
    4) The new US-sponsored govt starts the ATO(anti-terrorist operation) to rid Eastern Ukraine of all the Russian speaking Ukrainians or whoever else might be against the government.
    5) Civil war starts. Russia allegedly helps the Eastern side. US is training and supporting the Western side.
    6) The Western Ukrainian troops are composed of fanatical russophobes, neo-nazis, far right radicals, openly wearing SS/Nazi insignia and tattoos. US sweeps that fact under the carpet.
    7) These troops start conducting atrocities against the Eastern Ukrainian russian-speakers, bordering on genocide. US hides this from Americans.
    8) Civil war continues.
    9) Ukrainian troops continue to shell the residents of Donetsk and Lugansk while saying that it is the rebels who are doing this or the Russians (basically they are shelling vertically so the shells land on themselves), continuously violating the Minsk agreement.

    So let’s all incinerate each other over currency wars? Russia tried to crash the dollar in 2008. They tried to get China on board, China refused as they have too much investment in the United States and such a crash would likely push them over the cliff as well. Such stupidity on both sides.

    But let’s not forget it was Russia that made intimations of launching nuclear strikes if they don’t get their way. So what is the US supposed to do in the face of that? In the face of such threats it would be irresponsible to not consider such plans of our own. The problem is when people expect the planners to not plan and be prepared for every eventuality. How can you be prepared to handle any eventual eventuality if you haven’t planned for a future where that eventuality occurs?

    You don’t buy life insurance because you hope to use it, you buy it because it would be worse to not have it if you need it. The same goes for military planning.

    What would be worse for the US in the event of a nuclear war if Russia made good on their threats? Not having planned for one because the whiners would get their knickers in a twist for so doing. And for that matter, having a plan might make the Russians question the wisdom of making good on their threats. Meaning: If having a plan for nuclear war helps avert a nuclear war, how is that a bad thing? And if not having a plan for nuclear war leads to a nuclear war, how is that a good thing?

    What is insanity is in thinking that refusing to plan for the case of a potential event would somehow cause that event to not happen.

    I don’t guess that any of you idiots have noticed lately that the US government is insane — The Russian Government has always been insane and we expect that from them — But here we go stirring the pot up in Ukraine by arranging a coup just because Ukrainians did not want to join the EU — And now we are itching to fight a Nuclear War with a Country that probably has more nukes than we do — Now why doesn’t that strike you imbeciles as being ‘Insane”?

    What an idiotic article. Russian submarines were never “under attack” by the US Navy during the Cuban Missile crisis. We came close, but thankfully the crisis was averted. If Russia bases several TU 160 Blackjacks in Argentina however, they are far more deadly.

  • Stephen Williams

    Wonderful! The Military-Industrial Complex at it’s finest….NOT! In October 1962, General Curtis Le May was eager to get President John F. Kennedy to authorize a “first strike” and invasion of Cuba during the Missile Crisis. Fortunately, Kennedy resisted the good General. As it turned out, there was Soviet combat brigade in Cuba at that time and they were equipped with tactical nuclear weapons. They would have laid waste to our invasion force and probably that would have triggered World War III. Enough of the damned saber rattling! We have enough to worry about Islamic terrorism that worrying about Russia.

    ..”numerous historians who suggest that Japan was on the verge of surrender without such a drastic action being undertaken”…

    Tell that to the 12,513 American troops who lost their lives in the battle for Okinawa, Japan. Tell that to the Japanese citizens who cast themselves off cliffs to their deaths rater then surrender to the US. Tell that to the hundreds of thousands of Japanese citizens who had been or were being trained to fight America Marines and Army Soldiers for every single inch of Japanese land….. The Japanese were not ready to surrender. Surrender was a “Non Option”…..

    The Bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki were horrific. But the loss of life paled in comparison to having to invade the Japanese home islands.

    As far as the Americans who had fought and lived through WW2 in the Pacific, a dreadful and horribly cruel war… The us of the Atomic Bombs was never a question. And those who stand here today, alive and well in the most powerful and free nation on Earth debating the actions of those who gave them the lives they have. I say this… “The greatest generation owes no explanations or apologies. They did what they had to do to win as fast as possible. Had it been up to the people today..? I’m not certain we would have won a single battle.

    I believe we should move weapons into country that would allow us that could stop any missiles coming out of Russia and or china and also place a lot of nuclear weapons over and set them up with safe guards on them to protect them from being stolen and used, also place enough of our soldiers there to make sure they are not messed with. I agree we should be ready to use nuclear weapons on Russia, china and anyone else there might be. we need to just playing games with countries.

    human beings never learn. If a nuclear strike really happens, that is the end of the world. Damn it will really happen like the American tv show called “the 100”. After such disaster, those grounders, sky people, the reapers, and the mountain men never learn from history. It repeats again. Everyone slaughters each other. What a wonderful world.

    This is nothing new. All nuclear countries have a target list and contingency plans in place. It would be really irresponsible not to have done this preplanning. This has been true for decades. It is just not talked about. Do you really believe that all of the nuclear missiles are not already targeted in case.

    What the article fails to mention is that this is not over Ukraine… Ukraine is just a side battle. Russia is working very hard to crash the dollar, as hard as the US has been working to crash Russia. Whoever started it, I don’t know. What I do know is if it goes nuclear, no one will be around to reap the benefits of what they’re trying to accomplish. So the thought of this as even an option baffles me.

    the ‘only’ problem is – before Husein scares them off, – they may send couple hundred nukes our way,–
    I would not be surprised if Husein goes ahead with the ‘smart idea’ – and deploys nukes in Russian backyard,— God help us all,
    — who cares about ISIS,- live them alone,– the ‘only’ thing Huseins blood brothers are doing — they are ‘only’ killing everything that is not ISLAMIC,– yeaaaa, lets scare some Russkies off,– live the ISIS alone,

    US wants world dominance and that is why there has been this conflict with Russia and China. Unfortunately, if a war with China and Russia breaks out, American cities are going to be bombed. If you read Russia and Chinese news articles they are already preparing for war with the US because they think the US is planning to pre-emptively attack them like Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Afghanistan, etc. Neo-cons who advocate these middle eastern wars and strive for world dominance should be hunted down and shot.

    MAD… Mutually Assured Destruction. Firstly it is important to understand that Russia has been beating this drum for a while… Directly at the United States and its allies. Putin has said that if the United States or NATO help Ukraine it will strike with Nuclear weapons. I am assuming that the United States is saying that we can say the same things and we have the means to carry it out so if you are going to rattle the sabre we will do the same. It was a game that has been played since the Soviets gained the technology to build their first bomb. This is nothing new.

  • Michael Monacel

    You’ve got your head in the sand, yes they will use tactical nukes. These weapons can be shot from a artillery gun, or short range missile so let get real, they will be used is things go south.

    No. They are not as much paranoid to even consider this article and not that curious about blah-blah-blah to even read this article. The Internet is full of blah-blah-blah.

  • IndependentMySelf

    Like all the way since countries acquired such weapons there was ever a state when they did not target each other. Or else where those missiles aimed at?

  • The Bear

    Having grown up through the late 70’s through the fall of the Berlin Wall, If there is one thing I hope nobody has to live through again is the daily threat and worry of nuclear war from another super power nation. With the more recent Military buildup in Russia (Ukraine), and with China throwing it’s weight around in SE asia, and with North Korea slowly developing a means to reach our shores with intercontinental missiles, I was really hoping all nations would have learned from past history. I would say that we could put our nukes to a good use and erase the Islamic Extremists from the planet- particularly ISIS- it would be the only thing that those animals would understand and bow to. But other than that, I hope and pray that we never have to lock into war with Russia/China, it wold literally be the end of the world- and this is something I’ve lived in fear of for my entire life. I’ve felt that for 25 years we’ve been lulled into a sense of false security, as citizens we should be keeping this threat in the backs of our minds and preparing for that day should it ever come.

    That’s why it’s uncle sam – not Russia – that is sure to blink first: he already has EVERYTHING. And this everything will be gone just as fast and irretrievably as “nothing” or “much, much less” of others.
