When we posted the article about the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum [SPIEF] held in Russia, we focused more on the positive economic implications for its participants. But within the welcome speech by its host, Vladimir Putin, a dire situation was described and put into the world stage so that everybody understands that a slight mistake by Western leaders would mean an extinction level event.
Remember, it’s not Russia that’s been conducting military exercises near US, or EU borders, but only within its own territory. So, when this anti-Nazionist federation loses its patience, those passivistic population in the West could only blame themselves for their own inaction against their own leadership that’s been consistently barking at the wrong enemies.
The US anti-missile defense systems being installed near Russia’s borders can be “inconspicuously” transformed into offensive weapons, Vladimir Putin has said, adding that he knows “year by year” how Washington will develop its missile program.
Talking about NATO’s ballistic missile defense systems in Eastern Europe, Russia’s president said that the Americans are now deploying their missiles at these military complexes.
“The missiles are put into a capsule used for launches of sea-based Tomahawk missiles. Now they are placing their antimissiles there, which are capable of engaging a target at a distance of up to 500 kilometers [310 miles]. But technologies are developing, and we know around what year the Americans will get a new missile, which will have a range not of 500 kilometers, but 1,000, and then even more – and from that moment they will start threatening our nuclear capability,” Putin said at a meeting with the heads of international news agencies at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) on Friday.
“We know year by year what will happen, and they know that we know,” he said, adding that Western officials “pull the wool over [their news outlets] eyes,” who in turn misinform their audiences.
The main problem, according to the Russian president, is that people do not understand how potentially dangerous the situation really is. “The world is being pulled into a completely new dimension, while [Washington] pretends that nothing’s happening,” Putin said, adding that he has been trying to reach out to his counterparts, but in vain.
… The “great danger” is that the same launchers that are used for defense missiles can be used to fire Tomahawks that can be installed “in a matter of hours,” Putin noted. “How do we know what’s inside those launchers? All one needs to do is reprogram [the system], which is an absolutely inconspicuous task,” he said, adding that the governments of the nations on whose territories these NATO complexes are based would have no way of knowing if this had happened.
… While pointing out that NATO keeps rejecting “concrete” proposals from Russia on cooperation, Putin said that US policy is now jeopardizing “the so-called strategic balance… thanks to which the world has been safe from large-scale wars and military conflicts.”
By unilaterally withdrawing from the 1972 Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty, Washington “struck the first colossal blow at international stability,” the president said.
… “We must provide security not only for ourselves. It’s important to provide strategic balance in the world, which guarantees peace on the planet… It’s the mutual threat that has provided [mankind] with global security for decades,” Putin concluded.
In a truly civilized society, mutual cooperation, not mutual threat should bring about stability on the planet. This is what Russia under Putin is aiming for more than a decade now.
Based on the huge attendance during the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, it is very clear that most countries from the Eurozone prefer to move towards a more productive competition instead of an armed confrontation in which nobody is assured to win, only mutually assured destruction.
But they are all silent about their own sentiments so as not to offend the “hidden hand” that feeds them. Certainly, not the German foreign minister…
German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier has warned NATO against “warmongering”, after it conducted military exercises in Eastern Europe.
Mr Steinmeier said that extensive NATO manoeuvres launched this month were counterproductive to regional security and could inflame tensions with Russia.
He urged the NATO military alliance to replace the exercises with more dialogue and co-operation with Russia.
NATO has carried out a 10-day exercise simulating a Russian attack on Poland.
The drill, which ended on Friday, involved about 31,000 troops, as well as fighter jets, ships and 3,000 vehicles.
Russia has been strengthening its military presence near its borders. In February it held a combat-readiness exercise involving 8,500 troops in a southern region near areas of eastern Ukraine held by pro-Russian rebels.
So, if Germany is not really with NATO on this sizable maneuvers, why is it included in the list of those sending a contingent for the exercise?
Among the participants are NATO members including the Baltic republics, Spain, Turkey, Germany, Britain, Albania, Canada, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania and Bulgaria, as well as non-members including Finland, Macedonia, Ukraine, Georgia and Kosovo. Around 400 civilians from right-wing paramilitary groups will also be deployed. These are part of a 35,000-strong unit of volunteers mobilised by Poland under the guise of “national defence” against Russia.
… According to the official plan for the operation, after an “unfortunate incident,” i.e., a “misunderstanding, which the Russians interpreted as an offensive action,” Russian troops march into the Baltic States and Northern Poland, to which NATO responds by massing troops in Eastern Europe.
“The Russians have something to fear,” declared the conservative Polish newspaper Rzeczpospolita in an article on the exercise. The most widely circulated German daily, Bild, wrote, “Anaconda-16: here NATO practices war with Putin.” Spiegel Online confirmed, “One does not have to be an expert to understand the scenario. Shortly before the NATO summit, the Polish military is simulating a Russian attack on the eastern flank of the alliance. Poland can defend itself, that is meant to be the message.”
NATO has sought to portray the exercise as “defensive” and to brand Russia as the aggressor. A few days prior to the beginning of the exercise, Polish President Andrzej Duda declared at a meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, “The goal of the exercise is clear. We are preparing for an attack.”
Now, there’s nothing much clearer than that. The Polish president, however, is not alone in all of these instigations for World War 3 with Russia.
Some of them are lurking within the White House, hiding under the label “diplomats”.
Some 51 State Department “diplomats” signed a memo distributed through the official “dissent channel,” seeking military strikes against the Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad whose forces have been leading the pushback against Islamist extremists who are seeking control of this important Mideast nation.
The fact that such a large contingent of State Department officials would openly advocate for an expanded aggressive war in line with the neoconservative agenda, which put Syria on a hit list some two decades ago, reveals how crazy the State Department has become.
… As the 1990s wore on, the decimation of foreign policy experts in the mold of White and Derian left few on the Democratic side who had the courage or skills to challenge the deeply entrenched neocons. Many Clinton-era Democrats accommodated to the neocon dominance by reinventing themselves as “liberal interventionists,” sharing the neocons’ love for military force but justifying the killing on “humanitarian” grounds.
In short, the criminal mafia is still actively embedding its stooges inside key positions in the White House, EU Leadership and NATO, while people claiming to be covertly neutralizing some of these people are just blowing hot air.
With Americans’ failure to act decisively, can we still blame the Russians for dropping all they have to extract as much justice as possible?
Do you remember how close we came to Armageddon in the early 1960s when Washington put nuclear missiles in Turkey on the Soviet Union’s border and the Soviets responded by putting nuclear missiles in Cuba?
Fortunately, at that time we had an intelligent president instead of a cipher. President John F. Kennedy pulled us back from the brink and was assassinated by his own government for his service to humanity.
… Washington is putting its nuclear missiles on Russia’s borders, conducting war games on Russia’s borders, and stationing its Navy off Russia’s coasts in the Black and Baltic seas. To cover up its reckless, irresponsible aggression toward a nuclear power, Washington accuses Russia of aggression.
The presstitute media—the New York Times, the Washington Post, Fox “News,” CNN, and the rest of the despicable whores repeat the lie over and over until the Western populations are brainwashed.
Do you suppose the Russians, who know what is happening, are going to just sit there until they are so completely surrounded by nuclear missiles that they have to surrender?
Unless you believe this, you had best get busy saving your life and the life of our planet. Do not expect political leaders to do this for you. There are no political leaders in public office anywhere in the West, only paid puppets of powerful interests groups.
Do not expect experts, most of whom are dependent on these same interest groups, to bring influence to bear on government and media.
There is no one but us.
Up until the last World War in 1945, Russia was content in luring its invaders into its soil where it could decimate them afterwards. The upgraded Russian military doctrine will involve putting ground troops and war materiel inside American soil via long range supersonic Tupolev Tu-160. Such an attack will be inaugurated with a powerful EMP that is sure to disable highly advanced electronic based defense system, as the Russians successfully demonstrated against USS Donald Cooked.
When needed, China and Iran would surely join the fray. In the case of China, we can only speculate that what she lacks in aircraft carriers will be offset by hundreds of airborne transport systems for both personnel and war materiel that are now hidden in large tunnels somewhere in Central China.
We can further speculate that if she can afford to send billions abroad as friendly investments, she should have invested heavily on her defense capabilities first.
Putting boots on the ground is, of course, more of a humane treatment of its aggressors than anything else. The alternative would be more devastating, i.e. the use of its Wu-14 hypersonic multiple reentry vehicle which could be armed with nuclear warheads.
China all but confirmed it tested its hypersonic missile delivery vehicle a fourth time.
On Friday, China’s Defense Ministry seemed to confirm U.S. reports that Beijing tested its Wu-14 hypersonic vehicle on Sunday, June 7. Responding to an inquiry by the Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post, China’s Defense Ministry said, “The scheduled scientific research and experiments in our territory is normal, and those tests are not targeted at any country and specific goals.”
The statement was eerily similar to the one China’s Defense Ministry issued following the January 2014 test of the Wu-14. At that time, the defense ministry said: “It is normal for China to conduct scientific experiments within its borders according to its plans. The tests were not aimed at any nation nor any specific target.”
The true masters of the Art of War could never be outdone.
Here’s a Russian perspective about the current situation…
The big question now is: what could possibly trigger a full blown nuclear World War 3?
As of the moment we know that Russia and the entire BRICS Alliance have been very patient for the last five years with:
1. the color revolutions in Ukraine, Libya and Syria;
2. extended economic sanctions against Russia;
3. recent Soros’ attack on Chinese currency;
4. oil flooding by Saudi Arabia;
5. the establishment of the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq;
6. Turkey’s unprovoked shot down of one S-24 fighter plane;
7. Massive military exercises right at Russian and Chinese backyards;
8. Corporate coup against Brazil’s legitimate government;
9. Tactical nuke attacks on China economic infrastructure, and;
10. the mainstream media’s constant attack on Putin and all other leaders of the BRICS Alliance.
Yet, those were not enough to defeat the BRICS Alliance’s patience and paved the way for a full blown nuclear exchange, at least not yet. But judging from Putin’s body language when asked about the upcoming US presidential elections, one of Americans’ choices for president could spell disaster for us all.
At 1:26:49 mark of the video above, he clarified that he never endorsed Donald Trump beyond saying that the man is “flamboyant”, nor Hillary Clinton whom he said he has not “worked with extensively” ever [1:32:45 mark]. But he is hoping just the same that whoever the Americans chose to lead them, would establish friendly relations with Russia.
However, some analysts are already predicting a fainter scenario, something Putin could not even put to words, is the rise of one…
“Michele Flournoy, the US civil official predicted by many to head the Pentagon if Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton wins the US presidency in November, said she would alter American strategy to battle Daesh by assisting armed militias, called by Washington “moderate rebels,” to crush the legitimate Syrian president Bashar al-Assad.”
Speaking at a Center for New American Security (CNAS) think tank conference on Monday, Flournoy, a senior fellow of the organization, urged the US military to put boots on the ground in Syria to assist in toppling the al-Assad government, recently successful in reclaiming large areas of the country from Daesh.
… To justify her hawkish proposals, Flournoy took the traditional path, resorting to the Russian factor. She claimed that Moscow’s engagement since September 2015 in the war, at the invitation of the Syrian government, does not “support the kind of negotiated conditions we would like to get to.”
… The Pentagon, however, appears to have other plans in mind for Syria and Iraq. According to a CNAS report, prepared in cooperation with an “ISIS Study Group” co-chaired by Flournoy, Washington must “go beyond the current Cessation of Hostilities.” By that, the paper means a so-called no-bomb-zone, which suggests US retaliation against the Assad government, if Damascus continues to resist the American-backed militants. Proposed retaliation measures include airstrikes on “security apparatus facilities in Damascus.”
“If you bomb the folks we support, we will retaliate using standoff means to destroy [Russian] proxy forces, or, in this case, Syrian assets,” Flournoy told Defense One.
… According to Washington Post columnist David Ignatius, Flournoy is now on the “short, short” list for the job of US Secretary of Defense.
Indeed, both peace and stability of this planet still rest on the shoulders of the American voters come November of this year. Should they chose the wrong leader, we don’t think we will have another chance at any talk of “inclusive prosperity” for everyone. We believe that will be the end of it all.
This is not to say that American election does work. But, just like we just did here in the Philippines where we overloaded the rigged electoral system to the point of defeating the 5 million padded votes for the Oligarchy’s presidential candidate, i.e. Manuel Roxas.
Collectively, we can always defeat the system, however rigged it is. We just need to work together, and give it all we’ve got. Yeah, but we have an Electoral College, blah, blah, blah.
The thing is… these so called American patriots are so proud and content with mere singing of the words, “Land of the Free; Home of the Brave,” while still waiting the next guy to do it first. But, they love their guns so much, they are very apprehensive every time there’s false flag mass shootings aimed at gun control.
In deep contrast, here’s the young Russian soldier assigned in Palmyra who, without hesitation, called out an airstrike against himself in order to wipe out those ISIS terrorists surrounding him.
Putin himself reassured his countrymen that Russia will respond to aggressive NATO’s rhetoric.
