Only Russia Can Destroy US – U.S. Ambassador

Amid indications that Russia carries out military drills to prepare for a large-scale war against NATO, experts around the world evaluate the possibility of a renewed Cold War as well as global arms race.

Only Russia Can Destroy US - U.S. Ambassador

Diana Belchase, an American writer, was recently invited to Georgetown University to hear Ambassador Linton Brooks talk about the U.S. relationship with Russia.

Ambassador Brooks took part in the development of both the START and START 2 treaties, and has knowledge of what is happening in the geopolitical order today.

However, Brooks stated that all his opinions were his own and they do not reflect any official U.S. agency’s thoughts.

“Ten years ago no one cared about Russia as a threat. Even John McCain said, ‘Russia is a gas station’ … with atom bombs,” Ambassador Brooks said.  “Their interest is the same as ours in dealing with the issues of the Middle East.”

Brooks noted that Russia is an important vote on the UN Security Council and is the only country in the world capable of destroying Washington.

Brooks then added that “The Bush Administration said Russia is no longer a threat. Obama has tried to strengthen our relationship. But Clinton, Bush and Obama have all failed.”

In his opinion, the annexation of Crimea in March 2014 is the most important event in the relations between the U.S. and Russia since the Cold War, and that it’s the first time since WWII that a country has been annexed.

He then added that the Russians do not trust the Americans, while they are also “misreading American character.”

“They believe we’re trying to destabilize them. They believe we’re looking for first strike capability,” Ambassador Brooks noted, adding that Russian President Vladimir Putin especially believes in this.

Cold War 2: Repeated Reality

Diana Belchase then summarized that the Ambassador’s speech got her worried. She wrote that she grew up “in a world where the Cold War was real. It was the basis of a lot of great spy novels with thrilling plots and twists and turns.”

However, Belchase added that she would give up the pleasure of reading such spy novels for the Cold War not to become “a repeated reality.”

The author noted that she doesn’t have all the answers, and neither does Ambassador Brooks. However, she said that it’s important to know that “our new President, whomever that might be, will be knowledgeable and able to make inroads toward peace.”

Current NATO’s military drills – Swift Response 15 – involving nearly 5,000 soldiers from 11 NATO members are the largest military exercises of the Alliance’s airborne forces since the Cold War.

The military drills will run through September 13, and will include training of speedy troops landing. NATO officials noted that the drills have nothing to do with Russia, and that it’s just to ensure Europe’s security.

However, it is hardly a coincidence that the military drills are coming that close to Russian borders.

In order to show its military might, Russia carries out large-scale military drills, too. In March last year, Russia held massive drills involving some 80,000 troops.

Global arms race has begun

All recent political events are followed by regular saber rattling. And the joint military drills between Russia and China last month proved it. The drills then got worried all Western countries, especially the U.S.

Even though both of the sides deny it, the fact is that the arms race has been started.

NATO boosts its presence in Eastern Europe. The Alliance plans to build five of its new military bases in the nearest future. This year, due to the constantly growing number of military drills, Germany had to increase its military budget by 20 million euro ($22.5 million).

However, even larger NATO’s military drills are coming: they will be held from September 28 through October 16 in Southern Europe.

Ever since Russia released its revised military doctrine where it named NATO ‘the main threat’ to Russia’s security, Moscow has been holding military drills pretty much every day – either testing new weapons or developing a new maritime doctrine.

Russia is preparing for a large-scale war against the U.S.

However, what’s truly alarming is the research published by analysts at the European Leadership Network think tank, which analyzed Russia’s large-scale military exercises that took place in March as well as NATO’s smaller military drills in June.

The think tank concluded that the “nature and scale” of the drills showed that “Russia is actively preparing for a conflict with NATO, and NATO is preparing for a possible confrontation with Russia.”

Political experts around the world agree that such provocative military drills can trigger an all-out war, while showing off their military might is completely useless.

If you look back at the history, the main factor that allows aggressors to invade countries is not their military vulnerability, but rather political vulnerability. Examples can be drawn from unilateral interventions in Iraq, Afghanistan, Serbia, Bosnia, Libya; Russia’s invasion in Georgia in 2008 and Ukraine in 2014; Saudi Arabia’s invasion in Yemen and other examples.

Russia’s new military developments could destroy a “few NATO states,” which would trigger a response from the U.S. with much more advanced military hardware, and thus unleash a global war “with no point of return,” according to Igor Korotenko, a Russian military expert, as reported by ValueWalk.

ValueWalk reported last week that some military experts see a high probability of the beginning of a large-scale war between the U.S. and Russia as a result of encounter between warplanes over the Baltics or the North Sea during military drills.

  • Ashtonken

    U.S. and NATO did not cause the problem in Syria , the president of Syria is the main cause of the war in Syria ,first question how did the war start , answer the war started as a result of protest by Syrians citizens demanding for reform in the system of their countries governance and the president gave order to shoot them so the people have to defend themselves

  • Gaultier Jean-Paul

    Here comes another stooooooopis arse!! Keep shitting!!! I will not honor your nonsensical rant with anything positive.. Because one fool makes many and you both are classified as FOOLS!!! There is nothing that you see in the media about Russia or any other state that proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Russia will attack or want to attack Uncle Sam…. It is all saber rattling so do crazy selves something positive and just Shut The FU Up!!!!

  • Garry Compton

    Good post MD – I flew for 20 years in AK. and I heard a team of independent pilot investigators from America that volunteered to help on the MH 17 investigation and asked Washington for the satellite imagery and access to the salvage – they got shut out. The same thing happened on the 9/11 investigation. A lot of refugees went to Russia – a lot to Ukraine and there are a lot here in Crimea. They are still coming. In the end Crimea is probably better off – there was no war here – the Ukraine pensioners got converted to Russian pensioners and got an extra 100 bucks a month and they are starting to fix the schools and roads – UA didn’t do much for infrastructure – I’m no Troll – I just happened to get caught up between Russia and Washington — during my retirement years ! Thanks

    If anyone has a warped mind and out look it’s you Jean ……why would you think what geets said is a fantasy , are you truly that out of touch or are you just talking out your azz …… Wow , what’s the B S about you wanting to give blowjobs ? don’t you think your boy friend will get upset …… Talk about an assrash …..

  • liberaldisgust

    @ Foxwad , typical ignorant liberal B S , Palin never said that , it was Tina Fey on Saturday night Live …… F’k if you’re going to talk sh!t at least check your source otherwise you look like an idiot …… but I’m guessing that’s a natural look for you .

  • liberaldisgust

    @ Patrick Downey , EVIL , EVIL , ……. by what standard …… there isn’t a country in the world that couldn’t be described by that statement ….. So really , the statement by itself is biased and ignorant ….. qualify what you mean , if you can ….

  • Gaultier Jean-Paul

    WOW ?! I’m petrified. Can you quote where in the Bible you saw/see that? Lets have a conversation on this topic because I find it interesting… E-mail me at: [email protected]

    One time I heard a religious scholar say the Chinese will be building a bridge that links to either Israel or somewhere along that side and when they do this the Son Of Man will arrive in the skies then the Chinese will shoot at him with high tech weaponry and He will destroy them… Is it true? Then He’ll bring down the new Jerusalem..

  • Gaultier Jean-Paul

    Sit there with your warped mind and think rubbish! Do you think World Leaders are so silly as you are? Wake up from your day dreaming fantasy…. I’m sure if the US or its gangs weren’t sure of a devastating retaliation even with the annexation of Crimea, they would have certainly tried your fantasies already! Wake Up you blow job!

  • davidjordan

    To the author

    1) Russia’s modern military could destroy most NATO countries, especially the small ones like Slovakia

    2) You switch between NATO and the U.S. through this article and how the U.S. would bring in modern weapons. Well, if war were to breakout between Russia and the U.S. , it would be the U.S., not NATO. NATO is the paper name for the U.S. The U.S. is 60% of NATO, does the heavy lifting and hostilities would be directed under U.S. leadership. So, don’t use NATO, but say The U.S. or NATOUS.

    3) Both the U.S and Russia would destroy each other with their nuclear stockpiles

  • Spaceman Spiff

    Only the US can destroy the US and Americans are sitting there as spectators who watched it happen.

  • Morgen DenRay

    Yep, you got that right. It is strange (or is it?) that you hear nothing about it anymore on MSM. As much as CNN loves to cover tragic events, you’d think it would have received just a little coverage. For example, what happened to the information from the black box? What happened to the investigation? It couldn’t be that the results don’t fit their narrative, could it? And then they never mention the nearly 1 million refugees that fled to Russia. It is strange, isn’t it, that if Russia was the aggressor, then why were all those people fleeing to Russia? I mean, they should have been fleeing to Kiev, shouldn’t have they?

  • Ding Dee

    well if you read your history we’ve kicked your fat behind twice already back in Vietnam and Korea. If you keep with your foreign policy in containing China that would be another epic as kicking

  • A.Alexander

    How to call the person who had nominated this …to the ambassador?

  • romans

    Needs to divert the Russian folk’s attention away from the economy which is tanking. He has $72 of stolen money and assets to defend. How is he going to realise this corrupted wealth which is held in the names of proxies? Read Karen Dawisha’s book ”Putin’s Klepocracy” detailing this corruption and related ‘disappearences’ of those who fell in disfavour.

    Sarah Palin is keeping a watch on Russia from her house.

  • geets

    Mutual destruction is assured, sure Russia can flatten the US but the US the US can destroy Russia’s rather small 146 million concentrated population and launch an conventional invasion from over 200 bases world wide to seal their fate, however in the end both countries are destroyed along with neighbors like canada, cuba and mexico along with much of China and all the stans..

    Even in a limited exchange both nations would lose millions due to being left powerless and at the mercy of the weather and both but particularly Russia would be left susceptible to foreign invasions as well..

    The world as we know it would end for both Russia and the US along with 50 or more other nations..

    Putin’s economy is seriously under threat! Some within his inner circle are terribly upset with him for creating enemies everywhere making business difficult to run. All Putin is doing now is using the media to make the world think 90% of his people are behind him. Lies; Putin’s actions bear all the hallmarks of an abandoned child with guns! All he would do is shoot his way around town like a mad man. This guy is not ready one bit to mess around with mighty America! I agree with John McCain that Russia is a gas station with bombs; so is China and North Korea!

  • Gaultier Jean-Paul

    Bro, why not ignore that ignorant drunkard? Do he sound like someone who is mentally collective? No president in the US can bully a Nuclear armed Super State!!! Worst, since Bush has brought US Diplomacy and Respect to a new low, no one ever feared the US, only 3rd world countries did… Now with the two previous massacres(Iraq & Afghanistan) which started without merit and a blatant disregard for the UN Security Counsel resolutions, none of the US’s Allies trust or even respect them… The US is now alone, what is saving Uncle Sam is their Green Back and as soon as China do what they are suppose to and the Dollar implodes, so will the US’s economy.. Then there will be WORLD PEACE!! Happy Riddance!!

  • Keith Cooper

    Fear, fear, fear…it’s for sale and it seems everyone is buying it. Haven’t we’ve learned not to listen to these fear peddlers? I guess not. The Bush administration mastered it and now other countries use it as a tool to control the minds and hearts of their people. If they give you something to fear, you accept their actions to try and destroy it. What you don’t realize is they are misdirecting you from what their real purpose is. Do any of you really believe you know the real relationship between nations? So the media and the white house puts out some info on the news and you just believe it? Now when, if ever, could you trust our media? I mean they’re all owned by less than 10 people/organizations. Murdoch owns so many in the U.S. and Europe it should be viewed as a monopoly and recently Al Gore sold his and the U.S. media soul to Al Jazeera who is known to support terrorist activity but the U.S. govt allowed it. What’s more funny is that some of you be blaming the U.S. condition on individuals and their cabinets. Do you think a U.S. President is in control of anything? They are representatives of the corporations that bought their Presidency. You hate Pres Obama or Pres Bush or Pres anybody for what? They are put their to push the agendas of big business. Your prejudice is worthless. You’re hating the wrong people and I think some of you know it but you hate just to hate. Put your energy toward what really matters and that’s Big business controlling our country from the shadows. Make them come out of the shadows by voting to reveal the donors of these organizations and political parties and the curtain will be pulled back on how this world really operates the maybe you’ll see that we’ve all been had and it’s been going on way before you’ve been born.

  • Chris Herz

    Carefully ignored is the plain fact the USA has been consistent in violation of the pledge given by Bush I that NATO would not move east as a quid pro quo for Russia leaving Eastern Europe. And then this silly putsch in Ukraine. Brooks and all his neo-con colleagues are less able to read Russia than is the reverse.

    Wow Matthew Weatherford… Really??? So, the other world leaders are supposed to bow down before the U.S.?

  • Oxen

    Any nation that can launch a major devastating attack on a major city in USA within minutes of being attacked or threatened with eminent attack will not be attacked by USA. The same is true about Russia,so the nations to worry are the third World because they will be attacked by Super powers to grab their resources and install puppets. A US/Russia/China conflict will not happen any time soon. In any case USA cannot launch any provocative major war without the Europe puppets all/or most on side

    Russia can’t even get passed East Ukraine.

    The only thing that Russia can do against US is with nuclear strike which I am so sure of Putin would never do or he’ll reap the worse end of it. Militarily Russia is not ready for a massive military battle with the West, or even US as we speak. Look at Chechnya and Georgian conflicts that exposes Russia’s ill-prepared armed forces. And those conflicts are but tiny battles ranging from 5,000 to 10,000 opponents. With NATO’s over 3 million active troops with thousands of air power Russia will simply crumble in confusion from multiple frontlines and attacks, just look at the scenario inside Kremlin Putin trying to take hold on every battles inside Russia’s vast territory over-stretchering its forces, NO, Russia can’t win a major war with US or NATO. Specially not today.

    Maybe we should not be looking at the differences between us, but look at our sameness. When you get down to the root, it is all about ego.

    It is a sad statement that our societal structure is based on performance (competition), and politics, and not the truth, at what ever cost it takes, bending the rules a little seems always to be acceptable. This behavior is rampant throughout our civilization actually. Getting the best of someone is acceptable, I think it really is all about ego. We are an ego based civilization, which is only going to hurt us in the long run.

    The following is very true, it is not made up. I would have already been taken away if it were not true. Initially, I was
    harassed for a lot less than this by the Department of Homeland Security. Now they do not know what to do. Please read completely, and look at the final link, which is safe, and you can contact me if you have questions.

    Actually all militarism, and their corporate contractors, need to stop. We need to move on to a more peaceful existence. The United States government is far from the most powerful on Earth, maybe you can say they are the most powerful group of humans on Earth if we consider nationalism, then nation. The US government is not informing the citizens of the existence of extraterrestrials, well no government is, although it is very true. The Pentagon made some agreements with a group of extraterrestrials, before we were consciously ready. Other ETs have intervened, both of these facts are what the United States government does not want you to know. Do not stop here, this is very real. Check out the ETs on the California Highway Patrol helicopter. It has been posted for a while and they have not done anything with it, despite my disparaging remarks. They should have me evaluated, they will not. Although I do wish they take me to court for the harassment I received related to cutting entitlements to California law enforcement, which are exorbitant. I am not worried, as I am being protected, and they know it. There are people making contact with benevolent ETs all across the world it is very organized. There are many military whistle blowers coming out about some of it. Also, they will make these ETs the enemy, be on the watch for that, simply they did not get their way! What kind of ETs would allow a group of humans to keep them secret? I mean something like that should never be kept from the people. Would humans keep such a secret? You bet they would, which just shows where many are at consciously. And many humans believe and accept the government should do that, when it is actually all about us growing consciously, and not needing this type of over protective government, almost authoritarian and totalitarian. Regards the following, do you actually think I would post this if I were not
    being protected? Do you really think the CHP would allow this to remain on their site? Don’t you think they should have me evaluated, and taken away via the NDAA ruling? It will not happen. And if it were to happen, it would have already been done. Here is the link to the California Highway Patrol Google+ site look at the comment by “Saturn’s Moon Andromedia” which is mine.. :-) Peace and love is what it is all about, not war dear Friends… :-) On the link just below, be sure to click on the link in the comment, which will take you the the photograph of the CHP helicopter.

    I am not a proponet of going to war with Russia but at the same time I would hope our next president isn’t the same joke we have in there now. We must maintain or military status in the world while working towards as much peace as we can make. Our current president is being bullied at every level by other world leaders who see how weak and spineless he is.

  • Desert Man

    ValueWalk, why wont you allow what I wrote about the U.S. getting bombed ? is it so close to the truth that you don’t want the people to know about it ?

  • FPV Flyer

    More false propaganda. Russia and China are trying to use each other, and both want to be driving the bus. Their partnership is doomed to fail. Russia and China are boastful paper Tigers,with Nukes. Anyone who,starts trouble will be quite unpleasantly surprised. If you are constantly trying to convince the world how tough and strong you are, you have not yet convinced yourself. When is the last time the US boasted about a missile being able to destroy China? The host of their recent parade bragged that one missile they had, could “reach all the way to Hawaii!” Wow, act you’ve been there before, will ya? Chinese junk is untested, and the specs are always blown well,out of proportion. China knows it won’t fight the US, too much economic damage would result. Keep bragging about your superior anti access systems, and then will see what happens when they face countermeasures and non rigged testing.

  • FPV Flyer

    Russia is broke, natural resources in the ground don’t count towards GDP. Foolish midget Vlad spent all the money on vanity projects (Olympics?) and waste, fraud, and theft when oil,was high, rather than creating and executing a comprehensive plan to move Russia off of its deadly dependence on the price of oil and gas. Now that oil is in the crapper, and Vlad wants to pose topless and feed his sad ego, Russia is in a world of hurt. Economists have added up the costs of all of the upgrades the Russian military has boasted they will do, not to mention taking care of the Russian people, and the pensioners in Occupied terrItories. Russia is too broke to do any of it. All products will be created domestica?y by Russia too. Putin lives in fantasy world. Russia will spend itself into ruin, just like the USSR. Vodka swilling midgets never learn.

  • FPV Flyer

    Russia is broke, Putin is a fool with small mans ego. China’s slowdown has put a crimp in their world aspirations. The Yuan has been a disaster, great choice for the next reserve currency -not. China’s government has shown its complete incompetence trying to manipulate the stock market. The Chinese are too used to demanding things, and seeing them happen. Due to the depressed price of oil, the BRICS counties are hurting. Brazil’s economy is in serious trouble. Rampant corruption has been exposed. It’s one thing to talk about ending American hegemony, quite another to become the replacement.

  • Richard

    Why don’t you ask those who were once caught in the eastern block countries and had no chance of any freedom until the USSR got worn down and could no longer take care of their Communist ways and pay for a military? Why don’t you ask those former eastern Block people who are building their own military now in fear that Putin will do to them as what he did to Ukraine? Why don’t you ask all of the people once behind Putin’s Iron Certain why they do not want anything to do with Putin or his Russia? He is a cancer because the only friends he attracts are those leaders who are on record as being ruthless to their people or make no bones about destroying countries who represent freedom. Why don’t you ask those people I have mentioned what is America to the world compared to cancerous Russia? I know the answer, but would truly love to hear your answer!

    …he is a fascist rat, not a communist. Speaking as a communist myself he sicks his police on innocent civilians to quell dissent, and passes legislation that gives the presidency unlimited control. He is a fascist mongrel and his cronies are no better than Himmler, Goebbels, Goering and the rest of the discusting plutocracy that ran Germany into the ground.

    Thanks to Comrade Obama and Communist lawmakers, life in America as we knew it is already under attack! On the eve of 9/11, these people failed to stop the most dangerous agreement in history. The Russians are already moving military into Syria to surround Israel, and keep Israel from attacking Iran. Russian and China have been checking our defensive preparedness, why for a first strike?

    It is primarily Europe which is threatened by Russia. Since Europe is more interested in creating a welfare state for its millions of third world immigrants rather than supporting it’s military, let Russia be Europe’s problem.

  • Desert Man

    I for one am very worried about whats going right now with the Russians and the Chinese military build up, the Chinese can sneak their nuke subs in and they have enough subs to put one every 50 miles apart completely surrounding the United States coastline, we would have no chance of survival . imagine, in less then 15 minutes the U.S. can be completely destroyed, millions and millions of American people would be killed in that 15 minutes, and there would be no warning and no place in the states would be safe. If its not to late I believe that the U.S. needs to get off their asses and build up our defenses for such a strike. its obvious we are going to war in the very near future and the people running our country are asleep to that fact or maybe they know its going to happen and there’s nothing they or we can do about it so they close their eyes , don’t tell the public, and wait for it to happen, then poof, we are all dead with-in 15 minutes.

    To Polina Tikhonova-
    1) Russia can destroy a good number of U.S. cities in a conventional strike, just as the U.S. in kind
    2) Russia can destroy conventional military hardware could destroy most NATO countries
    3) Both Russia and the U.S. has the most nukes and could destroy each and the world over. But keep in mind, in the event of overwhelming force by the enemy, Russian Constitution allows the use of nukes
    4) Please decide if you’re going to use the word NATO or U.S. To refer to NATO fighting a war against Russia, then the U.S. would bring in more advanced military hardware. Well any conflict with NATO is a U.S. conflict, given the U.S. is 50% of NATO in terms of spending, equipment and support. NATO is the shell name for the U.S. Call it The U.S. or NATOUS

  • Eric Joshua Oleju Benson

    Very correct

  • Eric Joshua Oleju Benson

    Don’t be an idiot, If I were Russia, I will take the US down with me instead of self implode, be wise. There is no such things as containing a big and powerfull country like Russia, no nation has the power to do that, don’t delude yourself that America has the might to do that. If oil price receed back to 25 dollars/barrel, many countries will go down before Russia. Russia is only 50% oil dependent, but there are countries that are 90, 80 70% dependent on oil, these will tank long before Russia. Americas hatred of Russia is deluding many Americans.

    If you are stupid enough to go to war because of Ukriane go ahead.

    We spend more on education, both per pupil and per capita than all but a couple of very wealthy, small countries and principalities–the problem with education is a problem with teacher unions and so-called academics who design curricula pretty much exclusively for college-bound left leaning students. 7000 a day drop out of schools that just don’t connect with them. Shops are converted to computer labs non-college prep classes are labeled dummy classes. Maybe that’s ok because we’ve driven all of those great paying non college career jobs overseas with high taxes and impossible regulations.

In Luke 22 it even state when the time come your to sell you coat (garments) and buy weapons to defend the word of God and it’s people ! Your to turn your back on Eastern things,names and religions ,not vote for them ! CHRISTIANS TURNED THEIR BACK ON GOD(Jehovah) now his back is turned on America and we’ll see NO MORE BLESSINGS ! YES ! This is the end days ! After Kerry and his boss passes sign this peace deal ,it will allow Iran ,Russia and China to create the largest ,strongest military in history(100 million strong) The deal will be broken and in 3 1/2 years they will start Armageddon .

    Daily since March 2014, the Russian sky bears are perfecting their roundabout first nuke strike on the U.S. Mainland which has as its main purpose of precluding the U.S. from its capability of making return nuclear strikes. The first salvo will definitely be on Washington, D.C., to wipe out its entire military (Pentagon) and national leadership (White House and Congress). The second salvo will be to defang all its silos, airbases, and naval bases from San Diego, California to Norfolk, Virginia. After the U.S.’ military infrastructures are all put out of use, the third and last mission of the Russian intercontinental bombers will be to drop out leaflets to all major cities of the U.S. from New York to California for the unconditional surrender of the United States and its surviving naval and air force fleets all over the world to the nearest Russian and Chinese naval fleet invasion force commander or face possible total annihilation.

  • redeye18477

    You have to admire the robot that wrote this article. Note in the same article the writer describes the same thing but attaches different words to either side. Example:

    1. “Current NATO’s military drills –” VS. “In order to show its military might, Russia carries out large-scale military drills, too.” Notice how the description “military might” is not attached to the NATO “drills”

    2.”Russia is actively preparing for a conflict” VS. “NATO is preparing for a possible confrontation with Russia”. Key word “actively” and “possible”

    3. “Examples can be drawn from unilateral interventions in Iraq, Afghanistan, Serbia, Bosnia, Libya.”

    Notice how the USA/Great Britain are deliberately excluded from the sentence and illegal invasion is replaced with “unilateral intervention”

    4. Russia’s invasion in Georgia in 2008 and Ukraine in 2014. Note that Russia did not invade Ukraine and in Georgia it was Psychoshvili who attacked the Russian army and killed two Russian soldiers without any provocation by the Russians.

    Let’s be serious! The writer appears to be in darkness about the book “Disinformation”, which was written by the highest Eastern European authority on the machinations and intentions of present Russian dictatorship–masquerading as a democracy. The author of the book “Disinformation” was a high level General of State security apparatus of an Eastern European satellite of USSR, who defected to the U.S. in 1978. This book was presented to the American public in 2013, and Glenn Beck TV show hosted this book’s co-author, a Law professor from Missouri who discussed the book’s substance. In that book, the General is revealing that the Russian government has transformed into a “dictatorship spy state”–the first such a spy state in human history! No, the spy state is not out to do any military harm to any nation, especially to the United States but instead, the spy state has other agenda that the Western democracies do not readily apprehend at this time. The foregoing book will reveal even such a thing–if studied diligently. Last year, Stalin grand son stated openly and fearlessly, that the dictatorship spy state head is a “brainless” leader, and that “he heads a government full of thieves and tricksters” (The Independent, UK). Another U.S. citizen of Russian descent, Nikita Kruschev’s son,who lives in U.S., stated last year that Russia is no USSR, not even close!

    —–I sure hope Brooks wasn’t getting paid more then $8 hour—, Because he is an– idiot—
    for saying– Russia –is the only country in the world capable of——- destroying Washington.
    Ambassador Linton Brooks, Here is another Country that could destroy Washington
    with out any Nukes,—- Mexico.. That’s Right—- Mexico. All Mexico has to do ( and who’s to say
    they haven’t ) is send 100,000 soldiers across the border pretending to be immigrants
    looking for work. Once here the soldiers rent apartment across the US, each one
    of those soldiers find 10 ( 10 is an easy number truth be it wouldn’t be hard to get 100 each)
    country men( Mexicans) that would be willing to aid in bringing down the US. That 100,000 just

    turned into 1,000,000. If they got 100 each, Thats 10,000,000. Thats right 10,000,000
    troops here with out firing a single bullet all waiting for the go ahead to start the
    sabotage of power plants, HWY’s, water supply, you name it. 1,000,000 to 10,000,000
    planed bombs all going off at once, Then forces From Mexico, Guatemala, El salvador, Venezuela and who ever else in South america wants a piece of our pie. Now for the best part Russia or
    China could finnish off the invasion with out any Nukes.
    Ambassador Brooks ever think about that ? OH Mexico wouldn’t do that to us. Really ?
    General Santa Ana said the war is not over, and that they would win it with out firing a single bullet,
    We dont have any land that we took from them do we? Think they want it back and then
    some. Great Spanish for everyone now. All the wealthy Americans are forced
    to be gardeners, Labors , Maids. Couldn’t Happen , Really, Why do you think the borders
    are wide open and our Government does not dare enforce the law, The war is over
    it came and went without you even knowing, with out a single bomb, all they needed was
    a threat and a show of force and we caved.

    It seems like the Ambassador is lacking in historical perspective. Besides the Russian invasion and annexation of Crimea. Since WWII, Indonesia took over Timor, China invaded and annexed Tibet, Turkey invaded and took over North Cyprus, Israel took over the West Bank etc.
    I am sorry that our Ambassador does not present the Russian policies in Eastern Europe in the worldwide aggressive policies of nation states.

  • Rogue

    Once again you spout out where your anus is, you need to get your facts straight, the only reason Russia is even thinking of this is their economy is so shot that this is the only way Putin can keep national loyalty, the worse their economy becomes the more saber rattling they do, instead of rebuilding their decripit miltary they should be using their money to rebuild their infrastructure and economy again. Look through your history, many a time there is war in tough economic times. Also Putin wants a new USSR and he doesn’t care how many people (russian or other) he maims or kills to do it.

    You also forget that if Putin takes on NATO, it brings the USA into it and our more advanced military, we would do to russia just what we did to Iraq in operation desert storm, run right over them and this time boys don’t stop at the China border, just keep steam rolling along. If we would have done this at the end of WW2 we wouldn’t have these problems today. It would be the USW (United States of the World) by now.

    Alright, which is it? President Obama is trying to start a war with Russia, or is too weak? He “allowed” ISIS to become strong, but he should just stay out of the Middle East? Didn’t President Bush invade Iraq, based on false intelligence that he sold to us and the world? Didn’t that directly effect the balance of power in the region, giving it to Iran, a major United States enemy and supporter of Muslim extremism? Didn’t the President of Iraq, who was supported by the Bush Administration, await the military forces of the United States to leave his country, and then total chaos broke out, as the President quickly went against the Sunnis? How many people in Iraq have died since killing Saddam, who was an evil dictator and killer, but didn’t allow our main enemy, at that time, Al Qaeda to have a presence in his country? How many major terrorist attacks have happened on our soils under Obama?

    So, I guess we should just invade Russia now, as it is inevitable, but Obama is going to start a war, by the message that the increase in military exercises and forces in the region presents? Obama haters don’t even know why they hate him. They have just been told to do so by FOX News, Rush Limbaugh and the GOP propaganda machine. They are too ignorant to actually have minds of their own or to use any form of common sense.

    How many of the events that will destroy us, due to our President, have actually happened? He has year left in office and none of the Nazis, or I mean, Republican’s conspiracy theories have actually been realized. In fact, if you ask a Republican to give you an honest answer about why they hate the man so bad, they couldn’t come up with a legitimate and honest answer!

    Everything is in better shape under this administration than the one that proceeded him. That includes the economy and national security. Oh and he hasn’t went door to door and taken away all of our guns either! Damn, there are some ignorant bastards out there! Hell, blame some guy on food stamps for the countries problems, like FOX News does.

We spend $600 billions on military vs $80 by Russia. So, which one is a threat to another? Make your own conclusion.

  • Caymus

    NONSENSE! ISIS is hard to defeat because they are a guerrilla movement hiding among the Sunnis. The only way to root them out would involve killing a lot of innocent civilians. Bush created ISIS by invading Iraq and driving MILLIONS of Sunni Iraqi refugees into Syria where they formed ISIS. Get Real.


    Bigger BS is hard to imagine. Crimea was a part of Russia for 200 years before gifted to Ukraine that itself was a part of Russia for 300 years. To proclaim that “annexation” of Crimea has become a threat to USA – what a BS. By the way this so called “annexation” was a result of a referendum of Crimea to separate from Ukraine. Population of Crimea is a Russian majority. That’s how tension is being instilled by so called experts. USA has military bases around the world, including in Europe. How many military bases Russia has outside of its own territory – ZERO!! What a jerk this lecturer is.

  • Terski

    This article, like virtually all articles on YAHOO is a propaganda piece. There are no US experts on Russia. The reality is the US wants to start a war with everyone, including Russia and China, two powers that maintain the right to control their territories. Those territories stretch to Eastern Europe and Central Asia for Russia, and Asia and the Far East for China. The US needs to face its reality that they can only control the Pacific and the Americas, while Europe controls the Mediterranean. The Middle East is just a problem made worse by every American politician. No one gets it right, except for the Russians. No one cares about Africa, but they should. American citizens need to tell their politicians to stop wasting our money on trying to police the world.

  • Philip Coleman

    Get ready for it will happen’ China has been paling around also with Putin. Regular conventional War could happen quite simply by a mishap for the spark. Then they will go for the big nukes if needed. North Korea has 55 already to help. The Cold War is already on if you had not been told. As far as returns from the Space Station and launches those will end.

  • otaybob

    and why is that? Uh, because those former soviet republics are afraid of Russia invading them again and re-establishing the soviet union. They don’t want to be soviet ruled (oppressed) again. That is why THEY are asking to join NATO. It’s like if you get a gun because you are afraid of your neighbor, and then your neighbor saying you are the aggressor for getting a gun for protection. As some have said before, sure, we wouldn’t like it if Russia built military bases in Mexico or Canada. But, I don’t think Mexico or Canada are afraid of the U S invading them. Russia’s neighbors are afraid of Russia invading them at any given moment. Ukraine is a prime example. Do something Russia doesn’t like, and they invade you and take over your country.

    BS, Crimea belonged to Russia, that’s why Ukraine didn’t fight back, it wasn’t theirs to begin with and they knew that. Ukraine has territory that belongs to Moldova. Russians didn’t want Moldovan’s access to the Black Sea so they gave that land to Ukraine. Ukraine is not such a “victim” as the Media makes them out to be. They have Chechen Jihadists fight along side their troops…WTF??? Russia is going to spread their wings because we’ve been pissing on them since Gorbachov and you can’t blame us with the likes of Yeltsin and Co….?????

    Under 75 years ago over 25 million battlefield deaths occurred on Russia’s western front. No wonder they are paranoid about their western borders. The US should have kept Nato out of the former Soviet block nations and let Russia maintain influence. In time we would have seen a more trustful Russia and a slow and gradual movement of independence of these former Soviet block nations. It is the US and its aggressive military expansionism that is threatening a new cold war and, indeed, world war.

  • Mick Jones

    OMG. Somebody told this “expert” that Russia Russia can destroy the United States. Did they bother mentioning the fact that the United States cam also destroy Russia? This has been pretty common knowledge even among us common folks. It called MAD (mutually assured destruction) and the concept has been around since at least the early 60’s.

  • otaybob

    Without the U S fighting Germany, Hitler probably would have eventually defeated Russia. Germany simply bit off more than it could chew. And, the ONLY thing Russia has that can defeat the US is nukes. If Russia and the U S were to go to war, Russia would have no choice but to use nukes because they would get their arses kicked big time conventionally. Largest air force? That would be the U S. Largest navy? That ALSO would be the U S. Why do you think Russia keeps threatening to use nukes if the U S and Russia went to war? Because they know that is the only chance they have.

  • adam

    That wasn’t the first the USSR invaded Poland during the war was it.
    The allies started operation Torch, Husky and the invasion of mainland Italy before Overlord.
    They also fought the Japanese in Asia, before the last month of the war.
    The USSR’s contribution to the world should not be dismissed, but to consider it a selfless act is folly. Staling unlike Hitler was pragmatic. He could be reasoned with, but he didn’t put himself at risk for the good of humanity.
    Its a shame FDR died before the war was over, I think he was the one man who could have bridged the differences between the allies. The world might be a lot better today if that had happened.
    He was the only western leader that wanted to level and compromise with Stalin instead of distrust him and only use him as a weapon against the axis powers.

    Curious, how do you know what Putin “knows” and does not know. Don’t you think that both sides are just playing this game for everyone to get agitated and approve larger military spending, plus to grow more patriotic and support their govt? It is working for Putin. His approval ratings are somewhere around 80-90%, and the US military industrial complex is also a winner. It is getting paid big time to develop new weapons, which may or may not work (like the infamous F-35). I doubt that either side wants to push that red button. This is just a performance, although at the cost of some lives, like the poor Ukrainians or Syrians and Libyans, among others.

It was not going to happen, and Stalin was screaming for help despite Churchill’s disapproval. Roosevelt sidelined Churchill to help Stalin.

    Well, if WW 3 comes, likely, it’ll be fast and deadly. The Russkies nuke us, we nuke them. Then the Chinese steps in, which they’ll likely nuke us, again, we’ll nuke them, too. Damn! And I was hoping to see Star Wars episode 9 or the Avengers 5 or 6.

    Vice versa only nation that can destroy Russia is USA.

  • m hermance

    Putin has an 80% or better popularity rating. He’s not going anywhere unless he decides to. I’ve heard more than a few times that Russia is now the greatest threat to the US. Meaning some people in the government must know something you don’t. You cant believe the things you here on MSM were all they tell you is Russia is a weak of a country as there is.

  • Ali Baba

    Brooks, I bet you still wear diapers, you F/N Idiot. If Russia can destroy us, what do you think will happen to them??
    Get a life OLD MAN, the Russian’s know that if they cause a first nuclear strike against us, 180,000,000 Russian’s
    plus additional people in nearby countries will die with them. They will be CREMATED. What a silly old fool you are Brooks!

    No I remember that pact – every country played their own games at that time. Actually whole Europe – France, Britain and US of course allowed Hitler to occupy Austria, Poland etc. Especially US waited till the end of war to start getting pieces of European territory in 1944 simply to afraid that USSR will occupy whole Europe.
    Question to you – Do you think if you supply food to any country then it enough to defeat such brilliants like Napoleon and Hitler? Please be honest.
    I guess US Army had enough food in 1814 when small number of British burned down White House and defeated a great number of US soldiers? Selective memory and lack of history?

    Chris, America is the aggressor here. It’s America or NATO if you like that is knocking on Russia’s door. Russia also has more nuclear weapons than the US, The UK, And France combined. And they would have a few countries backing them up as well. Including China. A country of 1.3 billion.

  • rvandegrift

    Outside sources are not the threat to the survival of our country as much as we are calling wrong right, not taking responsibility, allowing an abusive president to divide and weaken us, allowing Congress to not do their job, standing by while our country is ruined economically and on and on and on. The last 10 to 20 years have seen the decline of what was once the bastion of freedom for the world!

  • m hermance

    It would take the whole world to defeat the US? Really? Russia’s nuclear arsenal alone could turn the US into a pile of ash from the Atlantic to the Pacific. That’s not counting the rest of their armed forces or China backing them up.

  • abe1000

    What a bunch of bs. Brooks is 77 years old and worked for President Reagan and hasn’t been to Russia for decades. In 2007 he left (read FIRED) Los Alamos National Lab because of security breaches. Now he is drumming the war drums.

  • Harry Plotter

    Fighting needs resources and a lot of other factors. Besides the old world war II technology that Russian Army is still trying to distance from it, their economy is sinking and days of Putin in power is counting. Also they are extremely dependent on oil and if Arabs drop oil prices further their currency will worth a toilet paper!
    I don’t understand what such analysts are thinking. They are certainly out of their mind by suggesting Russia can destroy anything! The only thing so far they were cable of destroying was their own empire and specially economy.

  • Chris

    Hey lucky you got that backwards, it is Russia that is the aggressor, do you think Russia would win a war against 11 other nations, I don’t think so!

  • Reyter

    yeah, a ‘non aggression pact’, meaning merely, we won’t attack you if you don’t attack us signed after Stalin’s approach to the bandits and fascists of Anglo-American and French imperialism for an anti Nazi pact was flatly rejected.

  • stranger

    You must be not knowing a history. “On 6 June 1944, The Allies began Operation Overlord” – that only happened after all major battles. Red Army defeated Germans in all main battles and pursuing them in Poland in 1944. So final of war is already determined. Just educate yourself and learn facts. I guess you drink too much cola and eat a lot of burgers with you history books :-) Compare numbers and facts and when all those events happened. Do not forget to include a brain if you have in all that – not everything that comes from your TV and textbooks is true .

  • Reyter

    Stop deluding yourself you moron. Stalin constantly said basically
    ‘Thanks for “selling” us supplies but what we really want is for your
    coward armies to stop sitting around the UK screwing UK forces and open a
    second front. 3 years later when the Nazis had been in constant,
    desperate retreat for over a year Anglo-Americans open a second front.
    Stalin, utterly pissed tells them to stop terror bombing defenseless
    civilians and hit military targets instead. He points to the large
    barracks and railway junction outside Dresden and asks Anglo-Americans
    to bomb it. 10 days later the city is firebombed, the women and children
    escaping along the river strafed but the barracks and railway junction,
    not touched.

    USA will destroy Russia on any given day people . Putin will know not to try the USA , he knows better he is all talk but knows who carries the Bigger Stick $700Billion USA defense Budget .Russia barely has enough food to feed its poor, it would take the whole world to defeat the USA !

  • Crom!

    I know it’s a very hard pill for you to swallow that Russia is no longer a world power. Get over it trying to think America is not a world power; they are. Face reality would you please.

  • Crom!

    No one is asking them to.

  • vladimir

    US & NATO messed up ME, why should Russia be expected to clean it up?

  • Lucky Da Silva

    If there is patience and restraint on the part of billingerent USA there will never be a war. It is time USA stopped trying to prove that they are the worlds strongest military. USa cannot match any nuclear war from Russia and China

  • Crom!

    oh so I guess you forgot that whole Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact thing right? Or did you forget the whole US lend lease act? Selective memory right?

  • Crom!

    So really, is Value week a Russian propaganda site just as fox news is for American propaganda?

  • Observer

    You must be kidding. If it were not for American supplies–both arms and food–Hitler would have won that war. But Russians never acknowledged this and went so far as to relabel cans of American food, so that the soldiers thought it came from Russia.

  • stranger

    Well – Russia freed the world from Hitler (the US joined to war once winner raised) and Napoleon – paid millions of their citizens’ lives.

  • Ashtonken

    I guess Russia should accept some thousands of refugees from Syria not to be looking for a way to challenge the U.S. Russia is not anyway contributing anything to the development and betterment of the world only to challenge the U.S. , I haven’t seen any sack of rice of Russian AID but you can see that of the U.S., during the ebola crisis U.S. provided about five hundred million dollar and military personals to help what did Russia contribute only to try to start war with the west to prove they are strong nation rubbish

    Its done already, you just don’t feel it yet.
