The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists published a study, on 1 March 2017, which opened:

The US nuclear forces modernization program has been portrayed to the public as an effort to ensure the reliability and safety of warheads in the US nuclear arsenal, rather than to enhance their military capabilities. In reality, however, that program has implemented revolutionary new technologies that will vastly increase the targeting capability of the US ballistic missile arsenal. This increase in capability is astonishing — boosting the overall killing power of existing US ballistic missile forces by a factor of roughly three — and it creates exactly what one would expect to see, if a nuclear-armed state were planning to have the capacity to fight and win a nuclear war by disarming enemies with a surprise first strike.

It continues:

Because the innovations in the super-fuze appear, to the non-technical eye, to be minor, policymakers outside of the US government (and probably inside the government as well) have completely missed its revolutionary impact on military capabilities and its important implications for global security.

This study was co-authored by America’s top three scientists specializing in analysis of weaponry and especially of the geostrategic balance between nations: Hans Kristensen, Matthew McKinzie, and Theodore Postol. Their report continues:

This vast increase in US nuclear targeting capability, which has largely been concealed from the general public, has serious implications for strategic stability and perceptions of US nuclear strategy and intentions.
Russian planners will almost surely see the advance in fuzing capability as empowering an increasingly feasible US preemptive nuclear strike capability — a capability that would require Russia to undertake countermeasures that would further increase the already dangerously high readiness of Russian nuclear forces. Tense nuclear postures based on worst-case planning assumptions already pose the possibility of a nuclear response to false warning of attack. The new kill capability created by super-fuzing increases the tension and the risk that US or Russian nuclear forces will be used in response to early warning of an attack — even when an attack has not occurred.

The authors explain why an accidental start of World War III or global annihilation would be likeiier from Russia than from the U.S.:

Russia does not have a functioning space-based infrared early warning system but relies primarily on ground-based early warning radars to detect a US missile attack. Since these radars cannot see over the horizon, Russia has less than half as much early-warning time as the United States. (The United States has about 30 minutes, Russia 15 minutes or less.)

In other words: whereas Trump would have about 30 minutes to determine whether Putin had launched a blitz-first-strike attack, Putin would have less than 15 minutes to determine whether Trump had — and if at the end of that period, on either side, there is no certainty that no blitz-first-strike attack had been launched by the other, then that person would be obligated to launch a blitz attack against the other, upon the assumption that not to do so would result not only in a toxic planet with nuclear winter and universal starvation, but also in a humiliating and scandalous absence of retaliation against that perpetrator, which would be a humiliation on top of an annihilation, and thus a sharing of blame along with the actual perpetrator, which sharing, for whatever term might remain during that passive party’s continued existence, would probably be an unbearable shame and result quickly in suicide, if that national leader’s own surviving countrymen don’t execute him before he kills himself.

Inevitably, the strictly personal morality and self-image of a nation’s leader in that type of situation are factors other than the very public global consequences that will determine the person’s decision; but, with only (at most) 15 minutes to decide on the Russian side, and 30 minutes to decide on the American side, there is an inestimably high chance now, that a nuclear war will terminate the lives of everyone who currently exists and who doesn’t soon die from the ordinary causes before then. Even the most dire projections of the dangers from global warming come nowhere close to matching that danger.

The question, now, then, is: How did the world come to this extraordinarily ominous stage? The co-authors repeatedly refer to the secretiveness at the top of the American government as one essential source, such as “… which has largely been concealed from the general public …” and “… policymakers outside of the US government (and probably inside the government as well) have completely missed …,” and these passages refer to an ordinary phenomenon in conspiracies at the top of a large criminal operation such as corporate criminality, where only a very small circle of individuals, commonly a half-dozen or even less, are made aware of the operation’s chief strategic objective and of the main tactical means that are being put into place so as to execute the plan. In this particular instance, it wouldn’t include the head of every Cabinet department, nor anything nearly so broad as that; but, clearly, since the key decision, to implement the “super-fuze” on “all warheads deployed on US ballistic missile submarines” was made by Obama, he is the principal person reasonably to be blamed for this situation. However, Trump as the person who has inherited this situation from his predecessor has, as yet, given no indication at all of reversing and eliminating the now-operative top U.S. strategic objective of conquering Russia. The more time that passes without Trump’s announcing to the public that he has inherited this morally repulsive operation from his predecessor and is removing all of the super-fuses, the more that Trump himself is taking ownership of Obama’s plan. Typically in such a situation, the leader who has inherited such a plan will be assassinated if he gives any clear indication of an intention to reverse or cancel it (the key insiders are typically obsessive about ‘success’, especially at so late a stage in it); and, so, if Trump were to try to do that, he would almost certainly try to hide that fact until the inherited plan has already become effectively deactivated and no longer a threat.

The key turning-point that led up to the present crisis was the gradual and increasing acceptance, on the American side, of the concept of using nuclear weapons for conquest instead of only for deterrence — the prior system, for deterrence, having been called “MAD” for Mutually Assured Destruction, the idea that if the two nuclear superpowers were to go to war against each other, then the entire world would be destroyed so catastrophically as to make any idea of a ‘winner’ and a ‘loser’ in such a conflict a grotesque distortion of the reality: that reality being mutual annihilation and an unlivable planet. A landmark event in the process of reconceptualizing such a war as being ‘winnable’, was the publication in 2006 of two articles in the two most prestigious journals of international relations, Foreign Affairs and International Security, both formally introducing the concept of “Nuclear Primacy” or the (alleged) desirability for the U.S. to plan a nuclear conquest of Russia. Until those two articles (both of which were co-authored by the same two authors), any such idea was considered wacky, but since then it has instead been mainstream. As the final link above (the article that’s linked-to immediately before) explains, the source even prior to George W. Bush goes all the way back to 24 February 1990 when his father, then also the U.S. President, secretly initiated the operation ultimately to conquer Russia, and within that article are links to the ultimate source-documents about that origin of the path toward world-ending nuclear war; so, getting to the original causes of the steady progression after 24 February 1990 in the direction of a conquest of Russia by the U.S. (assisted by its allies) can now be addressed by historians, even though only now is it finally being revealed to the public as news, though 27 years after it had actually begun in a very fateful decision by George Herbert Walker Bush, which has already cost American taxpayers trillions of dollars for no good purpose and resulting perhaps in the ghastliest ultimate end.

This article is being submitted for publication to all news-media without charge, in the hope that the current U.S. President will comment publicly upon it, even if only to ridicule it so as to avoid being assassinated for referring to it at all. This is an extremely dangerous time in history, and Donald Trump is now on a very hot seat, which any intelligent and accurately informed person recognizes to be the case. If ever the world needed courageous great leadership, now is the time; because, without that, we might all soon be entering hell. To avoid it, starting now 27 years after the U.S. government initiated this path, would be enormously difficult, but not yet totally impossible. This is where we are at the present time; and, ever since the coup in Ukraine in 2014, the purchases of ‘nuclear-proof’ bunkers have been soaring as a result.

This extreme danger is the new global reality. If the elimination of the threat does not come from the U.S. White House, the culmination of the threat will — regardless of which side strikes first. The decision — either to invade Russia, or else to cancel and condemn America’s decade-plus preparation to do so — can be made only by the U.S. President. If he remains silent about the matter, then Putin can reasonably proceed on the assumption that he’ll have to be the one to strike first. He didn’t place himself in that position; the U.S. regime did. Let’s hope that the U.S. will stand down the threat, now.

  1. What our media overlooks is that the USA blatantly violated arms agreements with Russia by building missile bases in Poland and Romania with MK-41 launchers, capable of launching nuclear tipped cruise missiles to quickly strike key targets in Russia. The Pentagon promises to only place SM-3 anti-missile missiles in these silos. Trust us, our Generals proclaim!

    A little history: Despite the fall of the Soviet Union, Russia refused to withdraw from the Kaliningrad Region in the early 1990s, and to this day it effectively remains a Russian colony. Russia also initially refused to withdraw its troops from western Poland, and finally did so in stages until all troops were withdrawn by 1994-5. The conclusion is: Russia cannot be trusted, which, of course, is something that any child in Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, and Ukraine learns based on the Russian behavior in the last 300 years.

    The area known today as Kaliningrad Oblast' was conquered by the (predominantly Germanic) Teutonic Knights in the 13th century from Sambians (related to Lithuanians) who were then effectively ethnically cleansed. The upshot is that neither Russia nor Germany can make the original claim to that piece of land (located between Poland and Lithuania). In a sane and rational world the Kaliningrad region would be demilitarized and made into an independent country (with Lithuania perhaps having the greatest claim to the territory) but when was the last time humans behaved rationally in foreign affairs?

    The U.S./NATO has over 300 military installations in Germany, incl. nuclear weapons. It makes little difference whether missiles are in western Poland or eastern Germany. The territory is so small that Berlin lies right next to the Polish border. Russia correspondingly placed Iskander missiles in Kaliningrad which are capable of hitting Berlin. So now we have a balance of terror. This seems to be the highest solution that humans in our current primitive state of consciousness are capable of. To quote Trump: sad
    , @Ram
    A US General told the Congress a few days ago that NATO was ready take on Russia in Europe. He is more than willing to sacrifice the Europeans for the Zionists. However, he did NOT tell the Congress that the war WOULD NOT stay in Europe, once started. The US population is mostly urban, unlike in Russia. You can work out how many bombs each side would need using the following site. Israel would I presume be one of the first areas to be incinerated.

  2. I do not doubt that the Deep State’s objective is to destroy Russia, but I’ skeptical that this “super-fuze” amounts to any kind of decisive step in that direction. The Pentagon’s claimed effectiveness for its gosh-wow gadgetry has latterly been orders of magnitude above the reality of the situation. We’ve just spent the better part of two decades being unable to make meaningful progress in freaking Afghanistan, for crying out loud.

    Frankly, I do not think that America’s transgendered military could so much as conquer Costa Rica, let alone take on a nuclear armed Russia.

    I was sceptical about super-fuses until I read a detailed explanation of how they work. Then I realised how dangerous this is. It would not be terribly hard for the Russians and the Chinese to replicate this development, however their possession of the same technology would NOT reduce the likelihood of US using it first.

    In briefest, super-fusing makes the First Strike much more effective and thus likely. The idea of super-fusing is relatively simple - unlike cruise and hypersonic missiles, the ballistic missiles have one huge weakness - once the rocket fuel is spent the ballistic missiles fly like thrown rocks - there is little trajectory correction. Super-fusing activates explosion within a predefined envelope of optimum destruction for the target, thus increasing the likelyhood of destroying the target several times over. For example, instead of the nuclear bomb overshooting the target, it is activated when the closest to the target. Super-fusing against land based silos and mobile launchers, combined with much better ABMD than exists now, especially against submarine launched ballistic missiles, would enable the First Strike with very low payback - in single digit percent. This means a First Strike that could destroy up to 99% of enemy's retaliatory capability and leaving more than enough missiles to threaten direct strikes on enemy's major cities.

    As I explained, ABMD is the weak link in this - it is far from effective yet, but give it unlimited $ printing and another 10 years or so and this scenario could become reality.

    " We’ve just spent the better part of two decades being unable to make meaningful progress in freaking Afghanistan, for crying out loud."

    The idea is not to win the war in Afghanistan, but to prolong it for ever if possible. Thus making billions for the power elite And in this country of dumb bastards...it's a snap.

    It’s hard to disagree with this article but the missing background is the US public.

    Americans have shown no remorse whatsoever for the murder of 100.000′s of civilians in the Middle East. They are indifferent to the WMD lies, don’t care about the destruction they have caused, and show zero empathy for their victims. Also keep in mind that young Americans ARE prepared to spend a lot of time on the rights and wrongs of so called campus “micro-aggression” and transgender “toilet rights”.

    If Russia was destroyed overnight and 50 million Russians killed, no doubt the reaction would be the same – indifference. The US public has truly disconnected from moral responsibility , and only has interest in things that affect it directly, either physically or financially.

    If for example, the public had had to pay a supplementary war tax of $2000 per person for each Middle East war, there would no doubt have been a major outcry, and the wars would probably never have happened, but in the event, the FED was there to quietly provide the funding and unobviously put the public in debt. Their grandchildren will pay the bill, and truthfully, they’re not really bothered about that either.

    Equally, as an extra precaution, the public is carefully sheltered from the reality of bombed cities and murdered and homeless families. The war party MSM excludes every trace of human interest related to the wanton murder of Arabs – calling them “Terrorists” which the dumb American public accepts while “nuke em” seems to be the even dumber and brainless reaction.

    If a nuclear bomb did actually explode on Washington D.C. the public would be as helpless as a crowd of babies, same as after the New Orleans disaster.

    It seems that Joseph de Maistre wrote, “toute nation a le gouvernement qu’elle mérite”. Translated, this means “Every country has the government it deserves” but now it’s a true disaster for the whole world, not just America.

    What does the American public control? The Deep State has been controlling war policy, and the Affirmative Action Pustule aka Obama was clearly in bed with them.

    Approximately 50% of those who voted indeed ARE extremely concerned about Mideast wars, and therefore voted for Trump to put an end to them and get us out of those mohammedan hellholes. Trump will implement such policy only if he can drain the Deep State swamp. Until then, your recriminations of the American people should only include the leftists/globalists who cheered on every miserable Mideast policy decision of their black messiah.

    http://www.politico.com/story/2017/05/04/trump-nuclear-commanders-237956

    A global coalition of former military leaders and diplomats who had responsibility over nuclear weapons is launching a “shadow security council” to offer advice to world leaders on how to reduce what they consider to be the growing danger of a nuclear conflict fueled by the rhetoric of President Donald Trump and destabilizing moves by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

    I wonder what these “destabilizing moves” are. Today we have launch-on-warning, precise nukes, stealth delivery services, hacks in hardware and software, weird stuff in orbit, and “missile defense against Iran” in Europe which can be repurposed in a second to attack Russia. Unless the airheads notice that the “destabilizing moves” come from the US, there won’t be much progress.

    We survived the MAD phase only through tremendous luck, there were more computer errors, brown pants moments and lost nukes than one would like to think possible. Let’s not waste this break that God has given us.

    Remember that once the missile is out of the silo, it can’t be called back. No remote defuse, sorry.

    Or rather than have the US destroy Russia, or Russia destroy the US, it would be preferable to root out the activist Jewish Neo Bolshevik war party that is behind it all. They have their own agenda, and regard themselves as above the law.

    They gave the US the WMD lies, 9/11 and destroyed the Middle East. They’ve also taken ownership of the US media to push their war agenda, apart from attacking Anglo America, sowing discord and promoting their financial interest (e.g. forcing the US public to bail out their 2008 loses at full $ while they kept their bonuses).

    If you think the President makes final decisions on all matters, I have a beach front property to sell you in Iowa. He is the public face of career Pentagon, State Department, and other Deep State proxies. Not a capstone critical thinker but a fall man.

    Nuclear war isn’t a reality, it’s a game of chess bluffs and the winner defeats the loser when there is only a logical option of loss. Because when supremacy is achieved, and understood by the opponent, you don’t suddenly nuke them – you take its periphery (Ukraine, Baltics and E. Europe, and other color revolution hot-spots), you destabilize it’s source of income (oil), you cut her off from the financial world (sanctions), you ostracize them politically (media/hacking), and you deny them future income (Syria) while cementing their future (denying the New Silk Road by local animosity – maritime disputes, arming India, etc).

    Real sudden catastrophic loss never materializes because we live in a non-zero sum situation – called living on the same planet – where abrupt destabilization backfires onto you from nuclear fallout and global market failure. It’s just a check-mate scenario understood by both parties that begets a slow suffocation due to ‘pawn sacrifice’.

    This is an astute and succinct description of what may have been had the US been able to act a decade ago. Instead, due in no small part to the ideologically driven strategic myopia of a certain, dominant faction, it got bogged down in MENA, and it's only inertia that makes it seem tantalizingly accurate today, but not quite. The "not quite" is what is putting paid to the Empire today...

    Today...
    - You almost took Ukraine, but not quite. The opponent snatched the only part worth having out of your mouth, and then pulled back to watch you try to digest the inedible gristle.
    - You almost took the Baltics, but not quite, and now the opponent waits (is waiting) you out as their non-Russian populations emigrate in droves.
    - You tried to destabilize his oil income, but not quite. He devalued his currency, increased production and his oil companies made record profits while your shale oil companies dove deep into the red and went bankrupt and your Arab allies had to borrow money to meet their budgets lest their restless populations revolt and threw both you and their comprador elites out.
    - You cut him off from the financial world, but not quite. He partnered with others (eg: China) to create their own world while nailing your allies with devastating counter-sanctions in agriculture and consumer goods. These also unleashed his dormant domestic entrepreneurship to take advantage of low competition, and now makes him less dependent than ever.
    - You ostracised him politically, but not quite. He brought new partners and expanded the reach of alternate structures such as SCO and BRICS, while his political personalities now top the charts around the world and Moscow has become the place to go when you need something done.
    - You (try to) deny him future income (Syria), but not quite. There he remains, organizing peace conferences with your proxies leaving you to wonder how/when he got there, how he's staying there, or how to dislodge him.
    - You (try to) cement his future by denying him the New Silk Roads, but not quite. The project is vastly larger than you, road construction slows a little and takes different paths, while you bog down in Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere (N. Korea?). When you're gone, construction will resume apace, leaving you and the Indias of the world peering in with their noses pressed against the glass.

    And how did the opponent, seemingly so weak a decade ago, turn table after table on the Empire a decade later? I submit that in no small part it was his understanding, and the Empire's misunderstanding, who actually had nuclear supremacy, and who was stretched a mile wide and an inch deep, and a dollar short. As the Russians say: "The dogs may bark, but the caravan moves on."

    Conquest of Russia (the ‘Heartland’ of the ‘World-Island’) was the single minded obsession, followed with uncanny determination, of the ‘Anglo-Zionist’ Empire (supposed successor of the not so mythical ‘Arthurian Atlantic British Empire’) from its bastard birth in the glorious days of the ‘Gloriana’, the hideous ‘Virgin Queen’ witch and her ‘Magus’ John Dee, to the theories of Mackinder (“Who rules East Europe commands the Heartland; Who rules the Heartland commands the World Island; Who rules the World Island commands the World.”), masked by the ‘collateral damages’ of the ‘colonization’ (i.e. conquest) of ‘The Indies’ (America and India proper), steps towards the encirclement of the ‘Heartland’. The ‘Great Game’ the Viking merchant-adventurers cum pirates (financed by the Jewish money lenders and receivers) played against the Powers that blocked their way to the gold and spices of the Eldorado of East Asia and the inexhaustible source of slaves that was ‘East Europe’. That block was the Orthodox Russia since the ‘betrayal’ of the Baptism of the Viking Vladimir. The ‘Vikings’ and the receivers of stolen goods never forgave it. They realize that as long as the ‘Heartland’ is not conquered none of their other conquests is secure.

    I agree very, very, very much with you're emphasis on the Heartland of the World Island but not that's it's necessarily in Russia and I don't necessarily think they believed they could own it themselves so much as they didn't want any one European power to own it.

    I haven't heard anyone else say this(but me) but the World Island theory is dead. Why? Space travel. Low Earth orbit is now the World Island. Here's Sam J.'s New world Island theory, "If you control low Earth orbit you control the World". Of course it's not as subtle as the former World Island theory in that to stop movement you have to bomb from orbit causing all kinds of heartache and trouble but in a pinch it can be done and the results obvious on who controls what.

    Well. Now we know what constitutes the true Obama legacy: “The new kill capability created by super-fuzing increases the tension and the risk that US or Russian nuclear forces will be used in response to early warning of an attack — even when an attack has not occurred.”
    This is in addition to the Obama-approved mess on the Russian borders with Ukraine (“ever since the coup in Ukraine in 2014, the purchases of ‘nuclear-proof’ bunkers have been soaring as a result”) and the Israel-pimped war in Syria where Russians have been fighting ISIS along with the legitimate government of Syria, while Israel and the US were caught on helping the ISIS- and Al Qaeda-affiliated “freedom fighters.”
    Is there any honest and knowledgeable person in a vicinity of the “deciders” to explain them the consequences of a high-level radiation for their grandkids? The deciders care not about the hundreds of thousands of other-peoples’ children that died as a result of US-led “humanitarian interventions,” but maybe they could get some resemblance of empathy rush when picturing their own progeny hit by a nuclear force?

    Is the NeoCon foreign policy establishment, which rules both Democrats and Republicans, insane enough to think it can pull of a nuclear first strike against Russia without any significant damage to the US or the world?

    Probably. Many of the individuals are bluffing, but mob mentality inside military intelligence is the same basic mess it is on the inner city streets.

    America’s NeoCons are a combination of two cultures: Germanic (in Anglo-Saxon form) and Rabbinic Jewish. The cultural Germans always have Gotterdammerrung to fall back on, and the globe nuked would turn that trick. The Jews, even the atheists, always think like Pharisses and assume that if they do something totally insane, that God will send their idea of a messiah to save them.

    The other requirement to make a counterforce first strike viable is missile defences which, although not effective enough to see off a full Russian launch, would be very capable of “mopping up” the much smaller numbers of missiles launched in response to an incomplete disarming first strike.

    So we don’t need to worry too much about this kind of improvement to the US capability so long as we don’t see the US regime simultaneously installing missile defences everywhere they can on the pretext, say, of defending against non-existent, propagandist third party regional “threats” ……

    Even that wouldn't be enough.

    Even if the US government was installing a huge global missile system while simultaneously building a potent first-strike capability, we'd only have to worry if they also had a history of attacking many other countries without provocation. Also if their political elite was pushing for military confrontation with Russia, like proposing to implement no-fly zones in Syria where Russian planes are flying missions (legally), with some members of the US establishment (people like Senator McCain) even calling for the downing of Russian planes if needed to accomplish that. Even in that hypothetical scenario it would only be really really dangerous if in the past some random senior US general (someone like General Wesley Clark) had already proposed to attack Russian troops - otherwise we could rely on the sanity of the generals to prevent such insanity.

    Fortunately, none of the above ever happened. It's all fantasy, folks. Nothing to see here.

    A great article by Eric Zuesse, the best I have seen on the subject. A devastating nuclear war is almost inevitable if the situation is allowed to persist. There were several nearly catastrophic incidents in the last cold war when warning times were much more generous. Similar incidents, in the near future would likely be game over for human civilisation and even the human race itself.

    It really doesn’t matter whether the US/European oligarchy is really planning to nuke Russia and/or China or not, the situation is just as dangerous either way. The setting up of what is evidently a first strike capability while simultaneously degrading their potential opponents warning times is well nigh suicidal. One could hope that there is someone in the US/NATO military who is not too functionally autistic to see things from the other guys point of view but I doubt it. If such a person existed, they might reflect on the fact that if the roles were reversed, most of their colleagues would be clamouring for a first strike of their own before the missile “defence” is fully operational.

    Finally, it doesn’t even matter whether the missile “defence” works or not. Unless both sides know it doesn’t work, and can also be sure that the other side knows that it doesn’t work, and also that it can’t be made to work, it is just as dangerous.

    It's hard to disagree with this article but the missing background is the US public.

    Americans have shown no remorse whatsoever for the murder of 100.000's of civilians in the Middle East. They are indifferent to the WMD lies, don't care about the destruction they have caused, and show zero empathy for their victims. Also keep in mind that young Americans ARE prepared to spend a lot of time on the rights and wrongs of so called campus "micro-aggression" and transgender "toilet rights".

    If Russia was destroyed overnight and 50 million Russians killed, no doubt the reaction would be the same - indifference. The US public has truly disconnected from moral responsibility , and only has interest in things that affect it directly, either physically or financially.

    If for example, the public had had to pay a supplementary war tax of $2000 per person for each Middle East war, there would no doubt have been a major outcry, and the wars would probably never have happened, but in the event, the FED was there to quietly provide the funding and unobviously put the public in debt. Their grandchildren will pay the bill, and truthfully, they're not really bothered about that either.

    Equally, as an extra precaution, the public is carefully sheltered from the reality of bombed cities and murdered and homeless families. The war party MSM excludes every trace of human interest related to the wanton murder of Arabs - calling them "Terrorists" which the dumb American public accepts while "nuke em" seems to be the even dumber and brainless reaction.

    If a nuclear bomb did actually explode on Washington D.C. the public would be as helpless as a crowd of babies, same as after the New Orleans disaster.

    It seems that Joseph de Maistre wrote, "toute nation a le gouvernement qu’elle mérite". Translated, this means "Every country has the government it deserves" but now it's a true disaster for the whole world, not just America.

  22. Is this article mis-information or dis-information? I get those two confused.

    We have been able to put a nuke in a 100 ft circle anywhere on earth for a long time. The “super-fuze” has nothing to do with the guidance system or speed of delivery but enhances perhaps the yield and the accuracy (elevation of detonation) of an already devastating weapon.

    How is this destabilizing? How does this yield a first-strike capability?

    For an explanation, read my previous comment and this one.

    START treaties have limited the number of missiles on both sides, at a time when super-fusing did not exist. This means that each side had enough missiles to destroy a percentage of the missiles of the other side (probably around 40-50%), but not all of them, thus MAD. With super-fusing, the side which strikes first can destroy a much higher percentage of retaliatory missiles on fixed and mobile launchers (90-95%) and still have some left over to threaten civilians in large cities, especially if ABMD can destroy all of the remaining 5-10% of retaliatory missiles.

    The hardest to destroy will remain the submarine launched missiles, but US military feel confident that they are tracking all Russian nuclear missile submarines with their attack submarines (and all the new and noisy Chinese submarines as well) and they could destroy them all on command.

    On top of all this, the US intelligence has been tasked with collecting psychological profiles of all Russian commanders of nuclear missile submarines. The plan is to try convince them not to launch, once the Russian command has been destroyed by the First Strike - once they have no command any more.

    I do not doubt that the Deep State's objective is to destroy Russia, but I' skeptical that this "super-fuze" amounts to any kind of decisive step in that direction. The Pentagon's claimed effectiveness for its gosh-wow gadgetry has latterly been orders of magnitude above the reality of the situation. We've just spent the better part of two decades being unable to make meaningful progress in freaking Afghanistan, for crying out loud.

    Frankly, I do not think that America's transgendered military could so much as conquer Costa Rica, let alone take on a nuclear armed Russia.

    I was sceptical about super-fuses until I read a detailed explanation of how they work. Then I realised how dangerous this is. It would not be terribly hard for the Russians and the Chinese to replicate this development, however their possession of the same technology would NOT reduce the likelihood of US using it first.

    In briefest, super-fusing makes the First Strike much more effective and thus likely. The idea of super-fusing is relatively simple – unlike cruise and hypersonic missiles, the ballistic missiles have one huge weakness – once the rocket fuel is spent the ballistic missiles fly like thrown rocks – there is little trajectory correction. Super-fusing activates explosion within a predefined envelope of optimum destruction for the target, thus increasing the likelyhood of destroying the target several times over. For example, instead of the nuclear bomb overshooting the target, it is activated when the closest to the target. Super-fusing against land based silos and mobile launchers, combined with much better ABMD than exists now, especially against submarine launched ballistic missiles, would enable the First Strike with very low payback – in single digit percent. This means a First Strike that could destroy up to 99% of enemy’s retaliatory capability and leaving more than enough missiles to threaten direct strikes on enemy’s major cities.

    As I explained, ABMD is the weak link in this – it is far from effective yet, but give it unlimited $ printing and another 10 years or so and this scenario could become reality.

  28. This “investigative historian” confects his bad dream out of very little substance. Quotes from the respectable enough Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists plus a great deal of imagination and major omissions allow him to paint a fantastic picture of raving lunatics thinking of “conquering” or “invading” Russia. (Yes he did use those words despite positing a scenario in which the Dr. Strangeloves would wipe out Rusdia with a first strike! His psychic medium clearly has forgotten to consilt the ghosts of Napoleon and Hitler).

    One major omission is to note what a quick search for “super fuze” immediately discloses, namely that the US Navy’s upgrade is already old news and largely complete so far as the increase in capacity that Zuesse describes is concerned.

    Another gigantic hole is the absence of mention of China. This is kid’s journalism.

    More accurately the psychopaths moved here. As countries become more powerful they move in and take over. It's very hard to argue that the average American has control of his country and it's military foreign policy. After all large numbers of people voted for no more war and no more intervening in other countries affairs. They did so for Bush Jr., Obama and for Trump. All said they would stop interventions. It's said that supposedly all this war making is making the average American richer by dominating others. I say bullshit it makes probably 50,0000 people richer who profit and control the war State and a bunch of bankers. The rest of us want nothing to do with it.

    Is this article mis-information or dis-information? I get those two confused.

    We have been able to put a nuke in a 100 ft circle anywhere on earth for a long time. The "super-fuze" has nothing to do with the guidance system or speed of delivery but enhances perhaps the yield and the accuracy (elevation of detonation) of an already devastating weapon.

    How is this destabilizing? How does this yield a first-strike capability?

    For an explanation, read my previous comment and this one.

    START treaties have limited the number of missiles on both sides, at a time when super-fusing did not exist. This means that each side had enough missiles to destroy a percentage of the missiles of the other side (probably around 40-50%), but not all of them, thus MAD. With super-fusing, the side which strikes first can destroy a much higher percentage of retaliatory missiles on fixed and mobile launchers (90-95%) and still have some left over to threaten civilians in large cities, especially if ABMD can destroy all of the remaining 5-10% of retaliatory missiles.

    The hardest to destroy will remain the submarine launched missiles, but US military feel confident that they are tracking all Russian nuclear missile submarines with their attack submarines (and all the new and noisy Chinese submarines as well) and they could destroy them all on command.

    On top of all this, the US intelligence has been tasked with collecting psychological profiles of all Russian commanders of nuclear missile submarines. The plan is to try convince them not to launch, once the Russian command has been destroyed by the First Strike – once they have no command any more.

    I won't even go into the loony ideas of this article or your understanding of the super fuses.

    How the hell do you know what U.S. intelligence is being "tasked with?" Are these intelligence agencies or your personal informers? Have these "tasks" been reported to the general public? And if so where is the intelligence value in such?

    In this particular instance, it wouldn’t include the head of every Cabinet department, nor anything nearly so broad as that; but, clearly, since the key decision, to implement the “super-fuze” on “all warheads deployed on US ballistic missile submarines” was made by Obama, he is the principal person reasonably to be blamed for this situation. However, Trump as the person who has inherited this situation from his predecessor has, as yet, given no indication at all of reversing and eliminating the now-operative top U.S. strategic objective of conquering Russia. The more time that passes without Trump’s announcing to the public that he has inherited this morally repulsive operation from his predecessor and is removing all of the super-fuses, the more that Trump himself is taking ownership of Obama’s plan.

    Reading statements like this one, and other observations by Philip Giraldi, have reluctantly made me into a conspiracy minded person when it comes to politics. After all, does anyone seriously believe that the pretentious, metro-sexual Barry Obama entertained any such “Dr. Evil” like plots to concur the world prior to being sworn in as POTUS? Of course he didn’t. He, even less than Trump, probably had no idea what he was getting himself into by running for president. It must’ve been a shocker for both of these men when they found out just how much potentially damaging intel that the CIA and NSA has on them through perfectly legal NSA spying. Would the CIA assassinate a president who got in the way of America’s interests (as defined by them)? Maybe, but why would they need to?

    The Deep State is in complete control of our foreign policy now. Our democracy and freedom were already largely lost due to giant asymmetries in knowledge between the US Citizenry and elected officials on the one hand, and the Deep State on the other. “Knowledge is power” as they say.

  37. One of the WWII planners was Frankfurter, also the writer of the Lend Lease Law that enabled Roosevelt to give war aid to any country.
    Bruce Allen Murphy, ‘The Brandeis/Frankfurter Connection, The Secret Political Activities of Two Supreme Court Justices’, New York, 1983

    After Hitler began deporting jews to concentration camps, one of them escaped, and was smuggled tot the USA, the Vichy France, Spain, Portugal route.
    This jew told Frankfurter what was going on.
    Frankfurter answered ‘I do not believe one word you’re saying’.

    Much later Frankfurter explained ‘I did not say he was lying, I said I did not believe him’.
    In 1939 Hitler threatened jews with ‘ausrottung’, the exact meaning of this word then is debated, ‘if they again started a world war’.

    My interpretation of the Frankfurter statements is that he had not expected Hitler to carry out his threat.

    So I am not all convinced that neocons will not start a nuclear war.

    Probably. Many of the individuals are bluffing, but mob mentality inside military intelligence is the same basic mess it is on the inner city streets.

    America's NeoCons are a combination of two cultures: Germanic (in Anglo-Saxon form) and Rabbinic Jewish. The cultural Germans always have Gotterdammerrung to fall back on, and the globe nuked would turn that trick. The Jews, even the atheists, always think like Pharisses and assume that if they do something totally insane, that God will send their idea of a messiah to save them.

    Put that pair together, and the entire world should fear.

    Preposterous bullshit. The Jews did 9-11. They owned the building and the security to wire them up. They owned the remote control systems that allowed them to hijack the planes. They control enough of the US government to get away with it and the rest they threatened enough to shut up with Anthrax(stolen from our labs by a Jew). They had Mossad agents filming the whole thing and they own the news networks that channeled the whole investigation onto the Arabs.

    If the Jews controlled access to building 7, and they did, then it falling the same speed as a rock dropped in air means it had NO support. None at all. The building had to be held up with air to fall at that speed. Well we all know the building wasn't floating ion the air so that means the bottom was demoed out from under it.

    Here is a simplified First Strike plan by US on Russia and China, in my opinion. China is more of the same as Russia, just at a lower level of military sophistication right now (but advancing in leaps and bouts).

    The First Strike starts with the launch of nuclear tipped cruise missiles from the “ABMD sites” in Poland, Romania, Ukraine, Japan, South Korea and any other new ones in the future. These cruise missiles are launched against Russian military communications, command and control sites, as well as early warning radars. The second wave are the ballistic missiles from the silos in US, which target the Russian silo based missiles and the mobile platforms (truck and train based) discovered by US satellites. Simultaneously, the US bombers with nuclear bombs on board are launched, to target any remaining Russian military infrastructure. Also, a command is issued to destroy any on-duty Russian ballistic and cruise nuclear missile submarines. The ABMD sites on land (at least two in Canada in the future) and on ships now switch to defence to try to destroy any Russian missiles that got launched. At the same time US propaganda to dissuade the commanders of the Russian submarines, not destroyed already by the US attack submarines, fills the radio. Apparently, Russia has only eight nuclear missile submarines, and not more than 4-6 would be on active duty at any given time.

    Ok this could be the US plan, but what do Russians have to counter it? The Russians have at least two tools in development. The first is the Bulawa MIRV, which is virtually impossible to shoot down with ABMD. The second are the submarine launched hypersonic cruise missiles, which are also almost impossible to shoot down by ABMD. Neither of these two are ready yet, but nor is the US ABMD. Therefore, the Russian approach is to make ABMD never effective, which would make even a partial retaliatory strike too expensive to US.

    More likely scenario ... Detecting increased traffic and chatter in US C4I channels and unusual tactical moves of US bomber and sub assets, Russia decides to take out US missiles on its periphery as a preemptive defensive move. US dithers over nuclear response in furtherance of NATO charter, but stands down ... After all, are Poland, Ukraine and perhaps Korea and Japan really worth the destruction of the major cities of the US "Homeland"? France and UK make same decision.

    Britain's Lee Child created superhero Jack Reacher. In "Night School" Child locates Reacher in Hamburg, where he beats up young Germans who call out that they are fed up with being occupied by USA; having delivered the characteristic chops to the face then kick to the nuts, Reacher taunts the downed German patriots, er, neo-Nazis, "how does it feel to lose a war?"

    When, still in Hamburg, Reacher ultimately confronts the head of a group of Germans attempting to revitalize German identity and culture, Reacher shoots him in the heart and then the head, carrying out the ideals he had learned in West Point Military Academy bull sessions. For Reacher -- Child -- British propagandists -- New York publishers, a German who is not fully on board with USA (Anglo-zionist) demands is, by definition, a Nazi deserving only to be extrajudicially exterminated.

    American (Anglo-zionist) popular culture reinforces "lack of remorse" at every turn and by numerous venues --

    I was sceptical about super-fuses until I read a detailed explanation of how they work. Then I realised how dangerous this is. It would not be terribly hard for the Russians and the Chinese to replicate this development, however their possession of the same technology would NOT reduce the likelihood of US using it first.

    In briefest, super-fusing makes the First Strike much more effective and thus likely. The idea of super-fusing is relatively simple - unlike cruise and hypersonic missiles, the ballistic missiles have one huge weakness - once the rocket fuel is spent the ballistic missiles fly like thrown rocks - there is little trajectory correction. Super-fusing activates explosion within a predefined envelope of optimum destruction for the target, thus increasing the likelyhood of destroying the target several times over. For example, instead of the nuclear bomb overshooting the target, it is activated when the closest to the target. Super-fusing against land based silos and mobile launchers, combined with much better ABMD than exists now, especially against submarine launched ballistic missiles, would enable the First Strike with very low payback - in single digit percent. This means a First Strike that could destroy up to 99% of enemy's retaliatory capability and leaving more than enough missiles to threaten direct strikes on enemy's major cities.

    As I explained, ABMD is the weak link in this - it is far from effective yet, but give it unlimited $ printing and another 10 years or so and this scenario could become reality.

    This just sounds like an air burst detonation. Is this one of those American things where they relabel something and remarket it?

    Read More
    • Replies: @Kiza
    Not exactly. The super-fuse is an envelope around the target which is underground, in which the explosion results in the destruction of the target even if the missile has not hit the ground within the radius of destruction for its potency. The optimum destruction envelope around the target looks like a church bell, as one would expect. Therefore, it is in air-burst detonation, but this is not the essence of the super-fusing technique. An air-burst too early or too late, still does not destroy the target. The essence is to "save" a missile which would have missed the target and still destroy the underground silo. A computer on-board the missile decides when to detonate the missile for its existing trajectory.

    However, the issue is always - how much of "own" damage are the US/NATO leaders ready to accept? Somehow, my feeling is that if the bombs are not falling on Tel Aviv the damage becomes acceptable.

    Lately, there has been a very powerful push in the media to disapprove nuclear winter and radiation damage to the population. Some commenters here are trying the same tack. In other words, if you are not killed by the nuclear explosion, you will be ok, so say the warmongers, those who claim the destruction of the planet are fools, again so say the warmongers.

    Are you serious? Israel has been caught red-handed on cooperating with ISIS. Following your logic, ISIS is much, much better than Russian Federation. Though in this case you are actually in agreement with Israeli brass. http://news.antiwar.com/2016/06/21/israeli-intel-chief-we-dont-want-isis-defeated-in-syria/

    “…maybe you have not noticed that Israel is not talking the Russia to joining their Russian Federation.”
    A truly amazing observation!
    Considering the role of Russian federation in stopping the ziocons from destroying Syria (and therefore from immediate annexation of the Golan Heights by Israel), the Israelis do indeed feel somewhat unfriendly towards Russians. There is also a much deeper “dissatisfaction” with Russians on a part of Israelis, which takes its roots in the history of the USSR; for this deeper level you need to read “200 years together.”

    The other requirement to make a counterforce first strike viable is missile defences which, although not effective enough to see off a full Russian launch, would be very capable of "mopping up" the much smaller numbers of missiles launched in response to an incomplete disarming first strike.

    So we don't need to worry too much about this kind of improvement to the US capability so long as we don't see the US regime simultaneously installing missile defences everywhere they can on the pretext, say, of defending against non-existent, propagandist third party regional "threats" ......

    Even that wouldn’t be enough.

    Even if the US government was installing a huge global missile system while simultaneously building a potent first-strike capability, we’d only have to worry if they also had a history of attacking many other countries without provocation. Also if their political elite was pushing for military confrontation with Russia, like proposing to implement no-fly zones in Syria where Russian planes are flying missions (legally), with some members of the US establishment (people like Senator McCain) even calling for the downing of Russian planes if needed to accomplish that. Even in that hypothetical scenario it would only be really really dangerous if in the past some random senior US general (someone like General Wesley Clark) had already proposed to attack Russian troops – otherwise we could rely on the sanity of the generals to prevent such insanity.

    Fortunately, none of the above ever happened. It’s all fantasy, folks. Nothing to see here.

    I actually think there is no master plan to attack Russia. There is, however, a plan to create capabilities for the US which would enable the US government to attack Russia with the possibility of winning such a war.

    I think the US elites are incapable of such grandiose strategic thinking. Their policies just happen as a result of general guidelines (like, weaken Russia, strengthen US capabilities relative to Russia, push for wars that might benefit Israel or weaken Russia, etc.), without anyone thinking through what would happen later, or what would be the logical consequence of the actions which they take. A lot of “decisions” are probably made by institutional inertia, for example I find it possible that the whole anti-Russian thing in the 1990s was the result of such. Why did they feel the need to bomb Serbia, when Russia was ruled by Yeltsin? Obviously, it could only have led to the alienation of the Russian elites, which did happen as a result. Did anyone think it through? I don’t think so.

    Similar thing with immigration. It’s obvious that France will be majority nonwhite by the end of the century. It’s likely that the UK will be majority nonwhite by that time as well. Germany, probably, too. The US will be minority white by mid-century. Was this policy thought out in terms of how it would affect the power-projection capabilities of these countries? How it would affect their elites? I don’t think so.

    The most frightening thought is that they have no idea what they are doing.

    Probably correct, but as the events surrounding Able Archer in 1983 highlight it's not whether the Yanks have such intentions that matters, but whether the Russians think they might have them.

    The ones who thought it through, like Kissinger, cautioned against it and were proved correct.

    I am very much appreciating this article and many comments.

    Having some military time, at peace, thankfully, and interest in arcane English words, I am knowing the diff.between material and materiel, fuze and fuse, etc.

    What this article and all of the comments are to lacking is a definition of ‘super-fuze’.

    I am suspecting that it is just a mis-use of the word ‘fuze’.

    Many seem to be confused about what a super fuse does. What it is is a very precise detonation device that makes sure the weapon fires at exactly the right time. Since all weapons have Circular Area of Probability CEP error then detonating at the right height at the right time can be very important IF the weapon is not right on target. Example. If the weapon is short then you'd want it to detonate late when it's as close to the silo as possible. The height is not as important as being right over the target. If it's long then you'd want it to detonate at a higher altitude when it's still right exactly over the target to get maximum pressure on the target. Pressure drops off VERY rapidly away from the blast. Here's a good page that explains it. Look at the diagram "detonation spread".

    http://portside.org/2017-03-05/how-us-nuclear-force-modernization-undermining-strategic-stability-burst-height

    I wonder how it works. The nosecone is going really fast. It must be complicated to accurately determine exactly where it is and exactly how high over the target. The how high could be easy to find but the where part would be tricky.

    Or rather than have the US destroy Russia, or Russia destroy the US, it would be preferable to root out the activist Jewish Neo Bolshevik war party that is behind it all. They have their own agenda, and regard themselves as above the law.

    They gave the US the WMD lies, 9/11 and destroyed the Middle East. They've also taken ownership of the US media to push their war agenda, apart from attacking Anglo America, sowing discord and promoting their financial interest (e.g. forcing the US public to bail out their 2008 loses at full $ while they kept their bonuses).

    If the US public can't wake up soon and deal with this cancer they've had it.

    For an explanation, read my previous comment and this one.

    START treaties have limited the number of missiles on both sides, at a time when super-fusing did not exist. This means that each side had enough missiles to destroy a percentage of the missiles of the other side (probably around 40-50%), but not all of them, thus MAD. With super-fusing, the side which strikes first can destroy a much higher percentage of retaliatory missiles on fixed and mobile launchers (90-95%) and still have some left over to threaten civilians in large cities, especially if ABMD can destroy all of the remaining 5-10% of retaliatory missiles.

    The hardest to destroy will remain the submarine launched missiles, but US military feel confident that they are tracking all Russian nuclear missile submarines with their attack submarines (and all the new and noisy Chinese submarines as well) and they could destroy them all on command.

    On top of all this, the US intelligence has been tasked with collecting psychological profiles of all Russian commanders of nuclear missile submarines. The plan is to try convince them not to launch, once the Russian command has been destroyed by the First Strike - once they have no command any more.

    From where do you think many Americans internalized the characteristic that Miro23 pegged:

    “Americans have shown no remorse whatsoever for the murder of 100.000′s of civilians in the Middle East. They are indifferent to the WMD lies, don’t care about the destruction they have caused, and show zero empathy for their victims.” http://www.unz.com/article/americas-top-scientists-confirm-u-s-goal-now-is-to-conquer-russia/#comment-1860779

    Britain’s Lee Child created superhero Jack Reacher. In “Night School” Child locates Reacher in Hamburg, where he beats up young Germans who call out that they are fed up with being occupied by USA; having delivered the characteristic chops to the face then kick to the nuts, Reacher taunts the downed German patriots, er, neo-Nazis, “how does it feel to lose a war?”

    When, still in Hamburg, Reacher ultimately confronts the head of a group of Germans attempting to revitalize German identity and culture, Reacher shoots him in the heart and then the head, carrying out the ideals he had learned in West Point Military Academy bull sessions. For Reacher — Child — British propagandists — New York publishers, a German who is not fully on board with USA (Anglo-zionist) demands is, by definition, a Nazi deserving only to be extrajudicially exterminated.

    American (Anglo-zionist) popular culture reinforces “lack of remorse” at every turn and by numerous venues –

    We’ll put a boot in your eye, It’s the American way . . .

    As Ron Unz and Dr. Stephen Sniegoski revealed on this forum, British propaganda has a long history: it was their efforts that lied the American people into World War II

    I read " Night School" Reacher is sent to Germany to find out who stole some sort of weapon of mass destruction. He finds the thief in the last few chapters. Most of the book tells how he discovers neo Nazis lurking everywhere.

    The Reacher series is totally PC and liberal. All the villains are evil
    White men. The military blacks and women are far superior to the military White men.
    In one of his earlier books he encountered
    " White supremacist Nazi" enclaves in the rural northwest. But actually Lee Child's books are not as PC and liberal as most fiction written after 1970.

    Conquest of Russia (the 'Heartland' of the 'World-Island') was the single minded obsession, followed with uncanny determination, of the 'Anglo-Zionist' Empire (supposed successor of the not so mythical 'Arthurian Atlantic British Empire') from its bastard birth in the glorious days of the 'Gloriana', the hideous 'Virgin Queen' witch and her 'Magus' John Dee, to the theories of Mackinder ("Who rules East Europe commands the Heartland; Who rules the Heartland commands the World Island; Who rules the World Island commands the World."), masked by the 'collateral damages' of the 'colonization' (i.e. conquest) of 'The Indies' (America and India proper), steps towards the encirclement of the 'Heartland'. The 'Great Game' the Viking merchant-adventurers cum pirates (financed by the Jewish money lenders and receivers) played against the Powers that blocked their way to the gold and spices of the Eldorado of East Asia and the inexhaustible source of slaves that was 'East Europe'. That block was the Orthodox Russia since the 'betrayal' of the Baptism of the Viking Vladimir. The 'Vikings' and the receivers of stolen goods never forgave it. They realize that as long as the 'Heartland' is not conquered none of their other conquests is secure.

    No, it's the prequel:


    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RYRr5GtcczE

    Mackinder ---> Mahan (who taught the theory to West Pointers)

    Walter McDougall on Mahan (among other things -- listen to the whole thing (skip the intros)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HKGSq2rvucQ

    In this insightful paper, Walter McDougall explores the options and outcomes facing Japan, Germany, Italy, USA, and the British in their interpretations, or misinterpretations, of Mahan's theories.
    http://www.fpri.org/article/2011/11/history-and-strategies-grand-maritime-and-american/
    The most pertinent quote from McDougall's paper recites that:


    "Thus, Germany’s naval program might be a weapon designed to overthrow the world order or a tool to help her forge a larger (responsible) stake in that order. But Sir Thomas Sanderson, a brilliant veteran just retired from Whitehall, responded to Crowe with a sigh. He bade him (and by extension his chief, Foreign Secretary Sir Edward Gray) to see world politics from Germany’s point of view:

    It has sometimes seemed to me that to a foreigner reading our press** the British Empire must appear in the light of some huge giant sprawling over the globe, with gouty fingers and toes stretching in every direction, which cannot be approached without eliciting a scream.
     
    In short, Sanderson argued that Britain’s empire and its maritime lifelines could be secured better through accommodation of a rising peer competitor than by arrogant outrage and dogged defense of the status quo. The parallels to the United States and China today are obvious."
     
    Finally, in the next-best-thing-to-Spielberg, Frank Capra devotes much of the second film in the 7-part Why We Fight series to projecting upon Germany -- and Germany alone -- the "militaristic" desire to "control the (Mackinder) World Island." Capra succumbed to the British propaganda dominating the American populace as well as agents of influence and decision-makers; in the clutch of the "huge giant sprawling over the globe, with gouty fingers and toes stretching in every direction," Capra responded to competition with amped up "arrogant outrage and dogged defense of the status quo," a status quo that was, by the way, ludicrously sanitized in Capra's saccharine portrayal of the unalloyed virtue of American life.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kaiXs_e-ekI

    { ~4 min, Capra claims that Germany seeks control of the World Island.
    In the first installment of the Why We Fight series, Capra has Germany plotting the conquest of the entire world.)

    If you think the President makes final decisions on all matters, I have a beach front property to sell you in Iowa. He is the public face of career Pentagon, State Department, and other Deep State proxies. Not a capstone critical thinker but a fall man.

    Nuclear war isn't a reality, it's a game of chess bluffs and the winner defeats the loser when there is only a logical option of loss. Because when supremacy is achieved, and understood by the opponent, you don't suddenly nuke them - you take its periphery (Ukraine, Baltics and E. Europe, and other color revolution hot-spots), you destabilize it's source of income (oil), you cut her off from the financial world (sanctions), you ostracize them politically (media/hacking), and you deny them future income (Syria) while cementing their future (denying the New Silk Road by local animosity - maritime disputes, arming India, etc).

    Real sudden catastrophic loss never materializes because we live in a non-zero sum situation - called living on the same planet - where abrupt destabilization backfires onto you from nuclear fallout and global market failure. It's just a check-mate scenario understood by both parties that begets a slow suffocation due to 'pawn sacrifice'.

    Unless you don't have nuclear weapons...then your country and lore is up for the taking on a whim.

    US is losing military ground in Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan to the Russian, while USA is losing economic ground in SE Asia, Africa, South America and North America to the Chinese, are you saying the super-fuze is a fake news?

    Zuesse's very important essay could be improved immeasurably by identifying the authors of these dire policy statements:

    Keir Lieber, professor in the Edmund Walsh school at Georgetown, is son of Robert Lieber, also a professor of foreign policy studies at Georgetown -- For 2 Professors, Like Father, Like Son

    Papa Lieber is one of the driving forces behind creating -- rather, demanding that Georgetown agree to create-- the department for Jewish Civilizational Studies at Georgetown. https://www.georgetown.edu/center-for-jewish-civilization-launch

    Based on a quick review of Robert Lieber's dozen appearances on C Span, the description, Like Father like Son is apt: the senior Lieber is a an unabashed zionist and Israel firster who has operated behind the scenes to implement neoconservative policies that favor Israel, to be carried out at the expense of American blood and treasure, under the mendacious gloss that they are "in America's interest." Those policies date back at least to the Clinton administration bombing of Kosovo https://www.c-span.org/video/?100370-1/bosnia-russia-gulf-beyond ; then the Persian Gulf war to "liberate" Kuwait https://www.c-span.org/video/?23811-1/anniversary-persian-gulf-war and the war in Afghanistan where "Afghanis welcomed our liberation of Afghanis from the Taliban." https://www.c-span.org/video/?168019-4/postcold-war-conflicts

I’m sure we’ll remember to thank that cuddly pair of parasites when they manage to kill a few tens of millions of Russians to get their 21st century war groove going.

    "It’s really too bad about Christianity having bred the spirit of vengeance out of the white man."

    You're not a Christian. You use the word of God for own demented ends. Unlike Man, God never takes vengeance from impure motives. His vengeance is for the purpose of punishing those who have offended and rejected Him. He and He alone will judge, not Man, for Man is wicked in their uncontrolled vindictiveness for perceived wrongs. It is alone for God to punish.

    I actually think there is no master plan to attack Russia. There is, however, a plan to create capabilities for the US which would enable the US government to attack Russia with the possibility of winning such a war.

    I think the US elites are incapable of such grandiose strategic thinking. Their policies just happen as a result of general guidelines (like, weaken Russia, strengthen US capabilities relative to Russia, push for wars that might benefit Israel or weaken Russia, etc.), without anyone thinking through what would happen later, or what would be the logical consequence of the actions which they take. A lot of "decisions" are probably made by institutional inertia, for example I find it possible that the whole anti-Russian thing in the 1990s was the result of such. Why did they feel the need to bomb Serbia, when Russia was ruled by Yeltsin? Obviously, it could only have led to the alienation of the Russian elites, which did happen as a result. Did anyone think it through? I don't think so.

    Similar thing with immigration. It's obvious that France will be majority nonwhite by the end of the century. It's likely that the UK will be majority nonwhite by that time as well. Germany, probably, too. The US will be minority white by mid-century. Was this policy thought out in terms of how it would affect the power-projection capabilities of these countries? How it would affect their elites? I don't think so.

    The most frightening thought is that they have no idea what they are doing.

    Probably correct, but as the events surrounding Able Archer in 1983 highlight it’s not whether the Yanks have such intentions that matters, but whether the Russians think they might have them.

    Why did they feel the need to bomb Serbia, when Russia was ruled by Yeltsin? Obviously, it could only have led to the alienation of the Russian elites, which did happen as a result. Did anyone think it through?

    The ones who thought it through, like Kissinger, cautioned against it and were proved correct.

    Though in truth, when it comes to the neocon types who really knows where the incompetence ends and the evil begins?

    From where do you think many Americans internalized the characteristic that Miro23 pegged:

    "Americans have shown no remorse whatsoever for the murder of 100.000′s of civilians in the Middle East. They are indifferent to the WMD lies, don’t care about the destruction they have caused, and show zero empathy for their victims." http://www.unz.com/article/americas-top-scientists-confirm-u-s-goal-now-is-to-conquer-russia/#comment-1860779
     
    Britain's Lee Child created superhero Jack Reacher. In "Night School" Child locates Reacher in Hamburg, where he beats up young Germans who call out that they are fed up with being occupied by USA; having delivered the characteristic chops to the face then kick to the nuts, Reacher taunts the downed German patriots, er, neo-Nazis, "how does it feel to lose a war?"

    When, still in Hamburg, Reacher ultimately confronts the head of a group of Germans attempting to revitalize German identity and culture, Reacher shoots him in the heart and then the head, carrying out the ideals he had learned in West Point Military Academy bull sessions. For Reacher -- Child -- British propagandists -- New York publishers, a German who is not fully on board with USA (Anglo-zionist) demands is, by definition, a Nazi deserving only to be extrajudicially exterminated.

    American (Anglo-zionist) popular culture reinforces "lack of remorse" at every turn and by numerous venues --

    If you ever need money, you'd make a good Russian propagandist. You seem to have internalized every of their talking point. May you have the power to investigate the other side as well, once in a while.

    By the way, maybe you have not noticed that Israel is not talking the Russia to joining their Russian Federation. But Israel is talking to the Western establishment about the possibility to joining NATO or the EU. What could be the reason for this, since Russia, according to your oppinion, is not more fascist than the US?

    This post was intended for you, Sebastian:

    “US Congress ends funding for Ukraine’s neo-Nazi Azov Battalion:” https://theduran.com/us-congress-ends-funding-for-ukraines-neo-nazi-azov-battalion/
    Is this “a good Russian propaganda,” Sebastian? In his case you need to address your grievances directly to the US Congress.

    “…Israel is talking to the Western establishment about the possibility to joining NATO or the EU. What could be the reason for this, since Russia, according to your oppinion, is not more fascist than the US?”
    Are you serious? Israel has been caught red-handed on cooperating with ISIS. Following your logic, ISIS is much, much better than Russian Federation. Though in this case you are actually in agreement with Israeli brass. http://news.antiwar.com/2016/06/21/israeli-intel-chief-we-dont-want-isis-defeated-in-syria/

    “…maybe you have not noticed that Israel is not talking the Russia to joining their Russian Federation.”
    A truly amazing observation!
    Considering the role of Russian federation in stopping the ziocons from destroying Syria (and therefore from immediate annexation of the Golan Heights by Israel), the Israelis do indeed feel somewhat unfriendly towards Russians. There is also a much deeper “dissatisfaction” with Russians on a part of Israelis, which takes its roots in the history of the USSR; for this deeper level you need to read “200 years together.”

    The war in Afghanistan is all about preventing / disrupting Eurasian integration. Afghanistan is a good spot to do that as, in addition to being centrally located it is also militarily weak. It borders the important 'Stans into which disruption could exported, and even offers a corridor to China.

    The US saw success there, but it's fleeting. It did temporarily disrupt Eurasian integration, but this is overshadowed by its failure to set up a political structure capable of sustaining, much less expanding the disruption in its absence. Unless the US invests a politically unacceptable amount of resources, it's stuck there playing a spoiler's game and will continue to do so until something happens to oust it.

True nothing in the doco would have upset the CIA but it nonetheless made sense of the whole Osama bin Laden story from beginning to end, including 9/11 as a development of his multiple simultaneous suicide attacks strategy (and one which caused vastly more damage than expected). Mind you my nitpicking brain didn't accept that the 10 year old Osama, one of his construction billionaire father's hundred plus children from 22 wives, had learned how to use explosives by the time his father died!

    This just sounds like an air burst detonation. Is this one of those American things where they relabel something and remarket it?

    Not exactly. The super-fuse is an envelope around the target which is underground, in which the explosion results in the destruction of the target even if the missile has not hit the ground within the radius of destruction for its potency. The optimum destruction envelope around the target looks like a church bell, as one would expect. Therefore, it is in air-burst detonation, but this is not the essence of the super-fusing technique. An air-burst too early or too late, still does not destroy the target. The essence is to “save” a missile which would have missed the target and still destroy the underground silo. A computer on-board the missile decides when to detonate the missile for its existing trajectory.

    Is this a plot for a new Spielberg movie.

    No, it’s the prequel:

    Mackinder —> Mahan (who taught the theory to West Pointers)

    Walter McDougall on Mahan (among other things — listen to the whole thing (skip the intros)

    In this insightful paper, Walter McDougall explores the options and outcomes facing Japan, Germany, Italy, USA, and the British in their interpretations, or misinterpretations, of Mahan’s theories.

    http://www.fpri.org/article/2011/11/history-and-strategies-grand-maritime-and-american/

    The most pertinent quote from McDougall’s paper recites that:

    “Thus, Germany’s naval program might be a weapon designed to overthrow the world order or a tool to help her forge a larger (responsible) stake in that order. But Sir Thomas Sanderson, a brilliant veteran just retired from Whitehall, responded to Crowe with a sigh. He bade him (and by extension his chief, Foreign Secretary Sir Edward Gray) to see world politics from Germany’s point of view:

    It has sometimes seemed to me that to a foreigner reading our press** the British Empire must appear in the light of some huge giant sprawling over the globe, with gouty fingers and toes stretching in every direction, which cannot be approached without eliciting a scream.

    In short, Sanderson argued that Britain’s empire and its maritime lifelines could be secured better through accommodation of a rising peer competitor than by arrogant outrage and dogged defense of the status quo. The parallels to the United States and China today are obvious.”

    Finally, in the next-best-thing-to-Spielberg, Frank Capra devotes much of the second film in the 7-part Why We Fight series to projecting upon Germany — and Germany alone — the “militaristic” desire to “control the (Mackinder) World Island.” Capra succumbed to the British propaganda dominating the American populace as well as agents of influence and decision-makers; in the clutch of the “huge giant sprawling over the globe, with gouty fingers and toes stretching in every direction,” Capra responded to competition with amped up “arrogant outrage and dogged defense of the status quo,” a status quo that was, by the way, ludicrously sanitized in Capra’s saccharine portrayal of the unalloyed virtue of American life.

    Forget about it, the real ones can be parked in any farm, the inflatable ones cannot be distinghuised from the real ones.
    Even in Saddam's Irak USA planes were unable to find Saddam's mobile V2's.
    Iran's underground silo's are even atomic bomb proof.

    I do not dispute what you wrote – the Russians would not be keeping their mobile launchers in plain sight, certainly not parading them around the country ready for photo- and video-shoot, just like the BUK battery according to the utterly ridiculous Dutch-lead Investigation of MH17 shoot-down.

    However, the issue is always – how much of “own” damage are the US/NATO leaders ready to accept? Somehow, my feeling is that if the bombs are not falling on Tel Aviv the damage becomes acceptable.

    Lately, there has been a very powerful push in the media to disapprove nuclear winter and radiation damage to the population. Some commenters here are trying the same tack. In other words, if you are not killed by the nuclear explosion, you will be ok, so say the warmongers, those who claim the destruction of the planet are fools, again so say the warmongers. I have no doubt that “someone” is trying to sell the advantages of the nuclear war to the population.

    What our media overlooks is that the USA blatantly violated arms agreements with Russia by building missile bases in Poland and Romania with MK-41 launchers, capable of launching nuclear tipped cruise missiles to quickly strike key targets in Russia. The Pentagon promises to only place SM-3 anti-missile missiles in these silos. Trust us, our Generals proclaim!

    A little history: Despite the fall of the Soviet Union, Russia refused to withdraw from the Kaliningrad Region in the early 1990s, and to this day it effectively remains a Russian colony. Russia also initially refused to withdraw its troops from western Poland, and finally did so in stages until all troops were withdrawn by 1994-5. The conclusion is: Russia cannot be trusted, which, of course, is something that any child in Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, and Ukraine learns based on the Russian behavior in the last 300 years.

    The area known today as Kaliningrad Oblast’ was conquered by the (predominantly Germanic) Teutonic Knights in the 13th century from Sambians (related to Lithuanians) who were then effectively ethnically cleansed. The upshot is that neither Russia nor Germany can make the original claim to that piece of land (located between Poland and Lithuania). In a sane and rational world the Kaliningrad region would be demilitarized and made into an independent country (with Lithuania perhaps having the greatest claim to the territory) but when was the last time humans behaved rationally in foreign affairs?

    The U.S./NATO has over 300 military installations in Germany, incl. nuclear weapons. It makes little difference whether missiles are in western Poland or eastern Germany. The territory is so small that Berlin lies right next to the Polish border. Russia correspondingly placed Iskander missiles in Kaliningrad which are capable of hitting Berlin. So now we have a balance of terror. This seems to be the highest solution that humans in our current primitive state of consciousness are capable of. To quote Trump: sad

    Its university was known all over the world.
    Of course Russia does not give it up, in the present situation where the west does anything to in fact occupy Russia.

    Our very clever prime minister Rutte defended the EU association treaty with Ukraine, what has clauses about military cooperation, with refererence to Russian vacuum bombs on Aleppo.
    We disapproved of this treaty in a referendum.
    But as the Netherlands is very democratic, this was pushed aside, as was the 2005 anti EU referendum.

    Trump did not know Rutte's argument when he approved the use of a vacuum bomb on the Pakistan Afghan border, E of Abottabad.

    I was sceptical about super-fuses until I read a detailed explanation of how they work. Then I realised how dangerous this is. It would not be terribly hard for the Russians and the Chinese to replicate this development, however their possession of the same technology would NOT reduce the likelihood of US using it first.

    In briefest, super-fusing makes the First Strike much more effective and thus likely. The idea of super-fusing is relatively simple - unlike cruise and hypersonic missiles, the ballistic missiles have one huge weakness - once the rocket fuel is spent the ballistic missiles fly like thrown rocks - there is little trajectory correction. Super-fusing activates explosion within a predefined envelope of optimum destruction for the target, thus increasing the likelyhood of destroying the target several times over. For example, instead of the nuclear bomb overshooting the target, it is activated when the closest to the target. Super-fusing against land based silos and mobile launchers, combined with much better ABMD than exists now, especially against submarine launched ballistic missiles, would enable the First Strike with very low payback - in single digit percent. This means a First Strike that could destroy up to 99% of enemy's retaliatory capability and leaving more than enough missiles to threaten direct strikes on enemy's major cities.

    As I explained, ABMD is the weak link in this - it is far from effective yet, but give it unlimited $ printing and another 10 years or so and this scenario could become reality.

    I’ve already read the spin, thank you. My point was that I do not believe it.

    " We’ve just spent the better part of two decades being unable to make meaningful progress in freaking Afghanistan, for crying out loud."

    The idea is not to win the war in Afghanistan, but to prolong it for ever if possible. Thus making billions for the power elite And in this country of dumb bastards...it's a snap.

    The war in Afghanistan is all about preventing / disrupting Eurasian integration. Afghanistan is a good spot to do that as, in addition to being centrally located it is also militarily weak. It borders the important ‘Stans into which disruption could exported, and even offers a corridor to China.

    The US saw success there, but it’s fleeting. It did temporarily disrupt Eurasian integration, but this is overshadowed by its failure to set up a political structure capable of sustaining, much less expanding the disruption in its absence. Unless the US invests a politically unacceptable amount of resources, it’s stuck there playing a spoiler’s game and will continue to do so until something happens to oust it.

    Useless quote without a believable source and still needs to have the context provided.
     
    Indeed it would be less than good form if I was using the quote to back an academic thesis, but here I'm indulging in idle conversation. You can go to Wikipedia and look up Thomas S. Power more easily than I can if you are genuinely interested.

    I congratulate you on your courteous frankness. What a contrast with some of the abusive obsessives.

    Mention of the abusive obsessives and in the spirit of idle but purposeful conversation I was interested in a doco in the “Evolution of Evil” series I had saved and finally watched that made the 9/11 attacks as a product of Osama bin Laden’s anti-American campaign easily believable. True nothing in the doco would have upset the CIA but it nonetheless made sense of the whole Osama bin Laden story from beginning to end, including 9/11 as a development of his multiple simultaneous suicide attacks strategy (and one which caused vastly more damage than expected). Mind you my nitpicking brain didn’t accept that the 10 year old Osama, one of his construction billionaire father’s hundred plus children from 22 wives, had learned how to use explosives by the time his father died!

    And my understanding of Osama's specific objectives has been enlightened. It is not difficult to believe that he noted the Americans' quagmire in Vietnam and the Soviets' in Afghanistan and planned to provoke America into attacking Afghanistan. Entirely rational from his point of view, and entirely successful. Beyond understanding what the George Soros of the Islamist construction industry plotted it does an Ockham's Razor job on complicated conspiracies whereby neo-cons or Israelis or ??? plotted an Afghan related outrage so George W. Bush could be conned into destroying Iran's greatest enemy for reasons not explicable.

    Indeed, and the Russians, at least, made many proposals to that end. They were met with scorn, the Wolfowitz Doctrine, and eventually the GWOT.
    The latter is actually 2 distinct wars; The War on Eurasia, and The War for Greater Israel.
    Thankfully, the American elite's support is split between the two, and not just those two, so I expect not much will come of either beyond the grotesque suffering inflicted on the populations caught in the crossfire and the impoverishment of their own.
    I believe the whole of my retirement years will be spent watching those two tragedies unfold.

    Here is a simplified First Strike plan by US on Russia and China, in my opinion. China is more of the same as Russia, just at a lower level of military sophistication right now (but advancing in leaps and bouts).

    The First Strike starts with the launch of nuclear tipped cruise missiles from the "ABMD sites" in Poland, Romania, Ukraine, Japan, South Korea and any other new ones in the future. These cruise missiles are launched against Russian military communications, command and control sites, as well as early warning radars. The second wave are the ballistic missiles from the silos in US, which target the Russian silo based missiles and the mobile platforms (truck and train based) discovered by US satellites. Simultaneously, the US bombers with nuclear bombs on board are launched, to target any remaining Russian military infrastructure. Also, a command is issued to destroy any on-duty Russian ballistic and cruise nuclear missile submarines. The ABMD sites on land (at least two in Canada in the future) and on ships now switch to defence to try to destroy any Russian missiles that got launched. At the same time US propaganda to dissuade the commanders of the Russian submarines, not destroyed already by the US attack submarines, fills the radio. Apparently, Russia has only eight nuclear missile submarines, and not more than 4-6 would be on active duty at any given time.

    Ok this could be the US plan, but what do Russians have to counter it? The Russians have at least two tools in development. The first is the Bulawa MIRV, which is virtually impossible to shoot down with ABMD. The second are the submarine launched hypersonic cruise missiles, which are also almost impossible to shoot down by ABMD. Neither of these two are ready yet, but nor is the US ABMD. Therefore, the Russian approach is to make ABMD never effective, which would make even a partial retaliatory strike too expensive to US.

    More likely scenario … Detecting increased traffic and chatter in US C4I channels and unusual tactical moves of US bomber and sub assets, Russia decides to take out US missiles on its periphery as a preemptive defensive move. US dithers over nuclear response in furtherance of NATO charter, but stands down … After all, are Poland, Ukraine and perhaps Korea and Japan really worth the destruction of the major cities of the US “Homeland”? France and UK make same decision.

    Russia has Iskanders on ready for the "ABMD" sites in Poland and Romania (they are missile sites conveniently named "defence" as everything US does is always defence). They do not even have to have nuclear tips, could be conventional. Apparently, it would not take much more than 10 minutes for those supersonic and (soon) hypersonic Iskanders to reach their targets in Poland and Romania and Iskanders are highly mobile and very difficult to destroy. In short, Russia is far from defenceless in any US plans, I was discussimg more the most optimistic plans that the US war planners may be making.

    Perhaps the crux of your point is that not all nuclear exchange scenarios lead to an all out nuclear war and I would agree with that. However, I would not like to even consider which scenario may lead to obliteration of my family and which would not.

    The other requirement to make a counterforce first strike viable is missile defences which, although not effective enough to see off a full Russian launch, would be very capable of "mopping up" the much smaller numbers of missiles launched in response to an incomplete disarming first strike.

    So we don't need to worry too much about this kind of improvement to the US capability so long as we don't see the US regime simultaneously installing missile defences everywhere they can on the pretext, say, of defending against non-existent, propagandist third party regional "threats" ......

    There are already nuclear warheads prepositioned inside the US that can be detonated at altitude by the use of private small aircraft or even a simple weather baloon

    A little history: Despite the fall of the Soviet Union, Russia refused to withdraw from the Kaliningrad Region in the early 1990s, and to this day it effectively remains a Russian colony. Russia also initially refused to withdraw its troops from western Poland, and finally did so in stages until all troops were withdrawn by 1994-5. The conclusion is: Russia cannot be trusted, which, of course, is something that any child in Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, and Ukraine learns based on the Russian behavior in the last 300 years.

    The area known today as Kaliningrad Oblast' was conquered by the (predominantly Germanic) Teutonic Knights in the 13th century from Sambians (related to Lithuanians) who were then effectively ethnically cleansed. The upshot is that neither Russia nor Germany can make the original claim to that piece of land (located between Poland and Lithuania). In a sane and rational world the Kaliningrad region would be demilitarized and made into an independent country (with Lithuania perhaps having the greatest claim to the territory) but when was the last time humans behaved rationally in foreign affairs?

    The U.S./NATO has over 300 military installations in Germany, incl. nuclear weapons. It makes little difference whether missiles are in western Poland or eastern Germany. The territory is so small that Berlin lies right next to the Polish border. Russia correspondingly placed Iskander missiles in Kaliningrad which are capable of hitting Berlin. So now we have a balance of terror. This seems to be the highest solution that humans in our current primitive state of consciousness are capable of. To quote Trump: sad

    Kalingrad was the great German city Königsberg.
    Its university was known all over the world.
    Of course Russia does not give it up, in the present situation where the west does anything to in fact occupy Russia.

    Our very clever prime minister Rutte defended the EU association treaty with Ukraine, what has clauses about military cooperation, with refererence to Russian vacuum bombs on Aleppo.

    It's hard to disagree with this article but the missing background is the US public.

    Americans have shown no remorse whatsoever for the murder of 100.000's of civilians in the Middle East. They are indifferent to the WMD lies, don't care about the destruction they have caused, and show zero empathy for their victims. Also keep in mind that young Americans ARE prepared to spend a lot of time on the rights and wrongs of so called campus "micro-aggression" and transgender "toilet rights".

    If Russia was destroyed overnight and 50 million Russians killed, no doubt the reaction would be the same - indifference. The US public has truly disconnected from moral responsibility , and only has interest in things that affect it directly, either physically or financially.

    If for example, the public had had to pay a supplementary war tax of $2000 per person for each Middle East war, there would no doubt have been a major outcry, and the wars would probably never have happened, but in the event, the FED was there to quietly provide the funding and unobviously put the public in debt. Their grandchildren will pay the bill, and truthfully, they're not really bothered about that either.

    Equally, as an extra precaution, the public is carefully sheltered from the reality of bombed cities and murdered and homeless families. The war party MSM excludes every trace of human interest related to the wanton murder of Arabs - calling them "Terrorists" which the dumb American public accepts while "nuke em" seems to be the even dumber and brainless reaction.

    If a nuclear bomb did actually explode on Washington D.C. the public would be as helpless as a crowd of babies, same as after the New Orleans disaster.

    It seems that Joseph de Maistre wrote, "toute nation a le gouvernement qu’elle mérite". Translated, this means "Every country has the government it deserves" but now it's a true disaster for the whole world, not just America.

    What does the American public control? The Deep State has been controlling war policy, and the Affirmative Action Pustule aka Obama was clearly in bed with them.

    Approximately 50% of those who voted indeed ARE extremely concerned about Mideast wars, and therefore voted for Trump to put an end to them and get us out of those mohammedan hellholes. Trump will implement such policy only if he can drain the Deep State swamp. Until then, your recriminations of the American people should only include the leftists/globalists who cheered on every miserable Mideast policy decision of their black messiah.

    What our media overlooks is that the USA blatantly violated arms agreements with Russia by building missile bases in Poland and Romania with MK-41 launchers, capable of launching nuclear tipped cruise missiles to quickly strike key targets in Russia. The Pentagon promises to only place SM-3 anti-missile missiles in these silos. Trust us, our Generals proclaim!

    My interpretation of the Frankfurter statements is that he had not expected Hitler to carry out his threat.

    THE THIRD FORCE OF WORLD WAR III
    Is China behind all that has been happening?
    Author: Viktor Minin
    [from WPS Monitoring Agency, http://www.wps.ru/e_index.html

    THE AMERICANS DON’T REALIZE IT YET, BUT CHINA HAS WRITTEN ITS OWN SCRIPT FOR SQUEEZING THE UNITED STATES OFF THE WORLD STAGE. CHINA SUPPORTS ACTIONS OF THE WEST AIMED AT MUTUALLY ASSURED DESTRUCTION OF RUSSIA AND THE MUSLIM WORLD. THE WEST, RUSSIA, ISRAEL, AND THE MUSLIM WORLD MUST WORK TOGETHER.

    THE WESTERN SCRIPT

    Using techniques of manipulating public opinion, the West is trying to establish the illusion of a global forces with the fascist- like ideology of Wahhabi fundamentalism. As far as the West is concerned, Wahhabi and Islam are the same thing. It is because of this that the essential terrorism of Wahhabi ideas is being formulated so simply for public consumption: all Muslims are terrorists by nature.

    [MORE]

    The preliminary objective of brainwashing (Islam is the basis of terrorism) is thus achieved. Therefore, the terrorist world of Islam should be maneuvered into fighting Russia. Russia and the Muslim world will destroy each other, and the West will gain access to the natural resources on their territories. The dollar pyramid will straighten once again, and the economic crisis will be over. Life goes on.

    Apart from the need to shock the international community with atrocities of Islamic terrorists, this script requires the presence of some country fundamental for this particular global force. It should answer the following requirements: a large Muslim population, government based on military dictatorship (which allows prompt replacement of the leader); borders with Russia, China, and India; nuclear arsenals; and a well-trained army with combat experience. Pakistan is an ideal fit, and Afghanistan is just a capsule.

    Continuation of the script after the terrorist attacks in the United States: retaliatory strikes at Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, and so on, depending on the situation. A dramatic rise in anti-American sentiments throughout the Muslim world as a result. A coup in Pakistan, leading to the rise of a radical Wahhabi leader there. Unification of Afghanistan and Pakistan.

    A Taliban invasion of Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzstan will follow. Conflicts with Iran and Iraq will follow. The second phase of preferable armed conflicts is as follows: Iran and Turkey, Armenia and Azerbaijan, Turkey and Greece, Georgia and Abkhazia, China and Taiwan, North Korea and South Korea, Israel and Palestine, and escalation of the situation in Chechnya. Russia will inevitably find itself dragged into some war or other, and declare general mobilization. Tatarstan, Bashkortostan, and some other ethnic republics will refuse to go to war under those circumstances. The rest of the population of Russia will also object. All this may result in a drastic destabilization in Russia, and a loss of control. Things may even reach extremes, ending in a military coup or disintegration of the Russian Federation.

    However, some details indicate that this particular script has bogged down. The world is different now. In the past, it was sufficient to torch the Reichstag or assassinate a prince; but now, even the horrors of September 11 no longer suffice.

    That is why some sort of “fuel” is needed to give the script momentum – terrorist attacks on the scale of September 11, but not in America alone. Over there, in Europe, and in Russia as well. Anthrax is just a prelude. Controllable terrorism, however, has its own limits. Russia knows, for example, that “Chechen terrorists” will no longer suffice. After all, linking them to Islam is fairly difficult.

    But even that is not the key point. Certain indirect aspects indicate that the script considered here is not the only one. Most probably, it is not even the whole script, just part of an even larger one. In accordance with the latter, Russia and the Muslim world fighting each other are not the only objectives. The West and Israel are too. It follows that some unknown Contractor and Player must be present somewhere. This script becomes possible when we assume that some Western elites and secret services made a kind of covert pact with this still-unknown Player.

    All this is only made easier by the fact that the United States is internally not prepared to carry out the task; its elites are split, and the gap first shown in the Bush-Gore election is only widening. The dollar may fail to withstand the new war, and could actually begin falling soon. This would rekindle and legitimize long- standing racial tensions. The ideology of liberalism and democracy as the most effective system is dead. It is time this fact was recognized.

    And what might this new, unknown third force be like? It should be invisible and still in politics, like an old crocodile hunting, pretending to be a log in the water. The Americans don’t realize it yet – but it isn’t all that hard to understand that the third force is China.

    THE CHINESE SCRIPT

    A few words about China as a super-power. Population in excess of 1.2 billion, economy larger than that of the United States, a professional army numbering almost 4 million men, gold and hard currency reserves enough to repel any American attack and virtually turn all of Southeast Asia into its own currency zone. An ample volume of dollars is a defense and a financial weapon to be used against the dollar itself. Throw a great deal of dollars into the market all at once, and the dollar will crash. A conflict with Taiwan may follow. It will be a conflict waged with American money, with American weapons, investment, and high technology. Add the nuclear factor here. Suffice it to recall the recent scandal when Chinese intelligence obtained all major nuclear secrets of the United States. Birth rates in China are no longer being kept down; defense spending has been increased. China is buying up armaments and military hardware.

    China has thoroughly studied the Western technique of getting out of crises via controllable armed conflicts and wars. It has written its own script for squeezing the United States off the world stage. The Western script becomes an episode in a larger game.

    Contents of the script:

    - while remaining inactive and all but invisible, China retains and replenishes its resources;

    - China supports actions of the West aimed at mutually assured destruction of Russia and the Muslim world;

    - China supports bilateral conflicts in line with the Western script;

    - China becomes ideologically active and active in the military sense when the moment is ripe;

    - when the conflicts are over, China moves into the new territories…

    The global conclusion is simple. This is the first time strategic interests of the West, Russia, Israel, and the Muslim world coincide. We can only survive together.

    Under the unfolding script, all of us are victims. China has already won, strategically and tactically.

    The test is plain – we will sink or swim together. The new global Chinese order will follow the rules the Americans drew up for themselves. What counts is that the “golden billion” of the world’s population alone will prosper; the remaining 4 billion are expendable. Unlike the United States, to say nothing of the Russians or Jews, China has this billion already. All of us are expendable in this wicked colonial system of distribution of resources.

    Proposals:

    1. All efforts, including from the elite of international finance, should be made to stop the war.

    2. Russia should become the real leader of the new process. (It has already become it but not yet aware of the fact.) The West and Israel need a strategic alliance with the Muslim world more than anything else, and this alliance is possible only through Russia. Only Russia in an alliance with the Muslim world can keep China in check without conflicts, helping it find its new place in the world as another super-power.

    3. Leaders of Russia, America, Israel, Europe, Iran, India, and international financial capitals must initiate a dialogue over leaving this crisis behind and preventing events like those which swept America on September 11.

    A time of change is upon us, and it’s futile to wish we were living in some other era. We have to change ourselves and change the world…

    A list of the US Congress members who are openly provoking a nuclear conflict with Russia by enforcing the illegal H.R. 1644 bill. The absolute majority of the sponsors of the bill are on Israel’s (AIPAC) payroll. http://thesaker.is/the-us-bill-h-r-1644-to-kill-russian-food-export-and-chinese-trade/
    ‘The Bill dictates that the moment president Trump signs it into the law, the US grants itself the “right” to start seizure of Russia’s, Chinese, Iranian and Syria capital, properties, vessels and aircraft, civilian as well as military, on the territories under the direct jurisdiction of the US laws, if not all over the world.
    The Bill claims to enforce the UN Resolution on the North Korea, without naming one. The reason why the US House of Representatives fails to name any particular UN resolution that they seek to “enforce” is because there is NONE that would warrant such measures. In essence, with the H.R. 1466 the US lawmakers seek to place a stoppage to the global trade and maritime activities, and they see targeting Russia and China as the best place to start.
    On average, it takes about a year for the US lawmakers to come up with a piece of legislature, so we can safely assume that H.R. 1644 was in development before the presidential elections.”

    I congratulate you on your courteous frankness. What a contrast with some of the abusive obsessives.

    Mention of the abusive obsessives and in the spirit of idle but purposeful conversation I was interested in a doco in the "Evolution of Evil" series I had saved and finally watched that made the 9/11 attacks as a product of Osama bin Laden's anti-American campaign easily believable. True nothing in the doco would have upset the CIA but it nonetheless made sense of the whole Osama bin Laden story from beginning to end, including 9/11 as a development of his multiple simultaneous suicide attacks strategy (and one which caused vastly more damage than expected). Mind you my nitpicking brain didn't accept that the 10 year old Osama, one of his construction billionaire father's hundred plus children from 22 wives, had learned how to use explosives by the time his father died!

    And my understanding of Osama’s specific objectives has been enlightened. It is not difficult to believe that he noted the Americans’ quagmire in Vietnam and the Soviets’ in Afghanistan and planned to provoke America into attacking Afghanistan. Entirely rational from his point of view, and entirely successful. Beyond understanding what the George Soros of the Islamist construction industry plotted it does an Ockham’s Razor job on complicated conspiracies whereby neo-cons or Israelis or ??? plotted an Afghan related outrage so George W. Bush could be conned into destroying Iran’s greatest enemy for reasons not explicable.

    Wise American leadership would have been enlisting Russian help from 1990 and Chinese help at least from 2001 to manage the world, don't you think? Before America ďid its best to impoverish its once amazingly strong economy it could have afforded this.

    Indeed, and the Russians, at least, made many proposals to that end. They were met with scorn, the Wolfowitz Doctrine, and eventually the GWOT.
    The latter is actually 2 distinct wars; The War on Eurasia, and The War for Greater Israel.
    Thankfully, the American elite’s support is split between the two, and not just those two, so I expect not much will come of either beyond the grotesque suffering inflicted on the populations caught in the crossfire and the impoverishment of their own.
    I believe the whole of my retirement years will be spent watching those two tragedies unfold.

    Good to know, SolontoCroesus. I'm sure we'll remember to thank that cuddly pair of parasites when they manage to kill a few tens of millions of Russians to get their 21st century war groove going. It's really too bad about Christianity having bred the spirit of vengeance out of the white man. Do Russians thirst for revenge? Does anyone?

    “It’s really too bad about Christianity having bred the spirit of vengeance out of the white man.”

    You’re not a Christian. You use the word of God for own demented ends. Unlike Man, God never takes vengeance from impure motives. His vengeance is for the purpose of punishing those who have offended and rejected Him. He and He alone will judge, not Man, for Man is wicked in their uncontrolled vindictiveness for perceived wrongs. It is alone for God to punish.

    US goal is conquest and enslavement of mankind.

    Adolf did NOT "share the goal" of "conquest and enslavement of mankind."
    Adolf's goal was nationalistic, not global; the clue is hidden in plain sight:

    Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (NSDAP)

    National Socialist German Workers' Party

    US agenda is (among other things) to force other nations to conduct their finances under US-Federal Reserve/fiat-currency - debt-basis; Germany under NSDAP determined to reject that system and established control of its own economy and system of finance.

    “Adolf’s goal was nationalistic, not global; the clue is hidden in plain sight…”

    No. Hitler in Mein Kempf argued that subjugated peoples actually benefit by being conquered by Aryans, and describes the struggle for world domination as an ongoing racial, cultural, and political battle between Aryans and Jews.

    "Aryan tribes, often almost ridiculously small in number, subjugated foreign peoples and, stimulated by the conditions of life which their new country offered them (fertility, the nature of the climate, etc.), and profiting also by the abundance of manual labour furnished them by the inferior race, they developed intellectual and organizing faculties which had hitherto been dormant in these conquering tribes. Within the course of a few thousand years, or even centuries, they gave life to cultures whose primitive traits completely corresponded to the character of the founders, though modified by adaptation to the peculiarities of the soil and the characteristics of the subjugated people. But finally the conquering race offended against the principles which they first had observed, namely, the maintenance of their racial stock unmixed, and they began to intermingle with the subjugated people. Thus they put an end to their own separate existence; for the original sin committed in Paradise has always been followed by the expulsion of the guilty parties."

    ...

    "(k) The Jewish domination in the State seems now so fully assured that not only can he now afford to call himself a Jew once again, but he even acknowledges freely and openly what his ideas are on racial and political questions. A section of the Jews avows itself quite openly as an alien people, but even here there is another falsehood. When the Zionists try to make the rest of the world believe that the new national consciousness of the Jews will be satisfied by the establishment of a Jewish State in Palestine, the Jews thereby adopt another means to dupe the simple-minded Gentile. They have not the slightest intention of building up a Jewish State in Palestine so as to live in it. What they really are aiming at is to establish a central organization for their international swindling and cheating. As a sovereign State, this cannot be controlled by any of the other States. Therefore it can serve as a refuge for swindlers who have been found out and at the same time a high-school for the training of other swindlers.

    As a sign of their growing presumption and sense of security, a certain section of them openly and impudently proclaim their Jewish nationality while another section hypocritically pretend that they are German, French or English as the case may be. Their blatant behaviour in their relations with other people shows how clearly they envisage their day of triumph in the near future.

    The black-haired Jewish youth lies in wait for hours on end, satanically glaring at and spying on the unsuspicious girl whom he plans to seduce, adulterating her blood and removing her from the bosom of her own people. The Jew uses every possible means to undermine the racial foundations of a subjugated people. In his systematic efforts to ruin girls and women he strives to break down the last barriers of discrimination between him and other peoples. The Jews were responsible for bringing negroes into the Rhineland, with the ultimate idea of bastardizing the white race which they hate and thus lowering its cultural and political level so that the Jew might dominate. For as long as a people remain racially pure and are conscious of the treasure of their blood, they can never be overcome by the Jew. Never in this world can the Jew become master of any people except a bastardized people.

    That is why the Jew systematically endeavours to lower the racial quality of a people by permanently adulterating the blood of the individuals who make up that people.

    In the field of politics he now begins to replace the idea of democracy by introducing the dictatorship of the proletariat. In the masses organized under the Marxist banners he has found a weapon which makes it possible for him to discard democracy, so as to subjugate and rule in a dictatorial fashion by the aid of brute force. He is systematically working in two ways to bring about this revolution. These ways are the economic and the political respectively.

    Aided by international influences, he forms a ring of enemies around those nations which have proved themselves too sturdy for him in withstanding attacks from within. He would like to force them into war and then, if it should be necessary to his plans, he will unfurl the banners of revolt even while the troops are actually fighting at the front.

    Economically he brings about the destruction of the State by a systematic method of sabotaging social enterprises until these become so costly that they are taken out of the hands of the State and then submitted to the control of Jewish finance. Politically he works to withdraw from the State its means of subsistence, inasmuch as he undermines the foundations of national resistance and defence, destroys the confidence which the people have in their Government, reviles the past and its history and drags everything national down into the gutter."

    "...the radical forces controlling Ukraine have carried their irrational Russophobic obsession to the extreme of risking multiple nuclear meltdowns in the country. They refuse to cooperate with the Russian designer of Ukraine’s reactors or purchase the nuclear fuel intended for them, instead ordering fuel from Japanese-owned US company Westinghouse. There have already been multiple emergency shutdowns of Ukrainian reactors due to problems caused by the incompatibility of the Westinghouse fuel. Yet scarcely a peep has been raised about this issue. Another nuclear catastrophe in Ukraine would spread radioactive fallout over most of western Europe, just like happened with Chernobyl."

    Or rather than have the US destroy Russia, or Russia destroy the US, it would be preferable to root out the activist Jewish Neo Bolshevik war party that is behind it all. They have their own agenda, and regard themselves as above the law.

    They gave the US the WMD lies, 9/11 and destroyed the Middle East. They've also taken ownership of the US media to push their war agenda, apart from attacking Anglo America, sowing discord and promoting their financial interest (e.g. forcing the US public to bail out their 2008 loses at full $ while they kept their bonuses).

    If the US public can't wake up soon and deal with this cancer they've had it.

    Exactly. It’s a very dangerous time for us. What if the psychopathic Jews decide that too many Whites are waking up and start WWIII between Russia/China vs USA? I’m not saying I know they are doing this but it does seem that this is being set up and could kick off if the right conditions are present. False flag sneak attacks could be a part of this.

    Is the NeoCon foreign policy establishment, which rules both Democrats and Republicans, insane enough to think it can pull of a nuclear first strike against Russia without any significant damage to the US or the world?

    Probably. Many of the individuals are bluffing, but mob mentality inside military intelligence is the same basic mess it is on the inner city streets.

    America's NeoCons are a combination of two cultures: Germanic (in Anglo-Saxon form) and Rabbinic Jewish. The cultural Germans always have Gotterdammerrung to fall back on, and the globe nuked would turn that trick. The Jews, even the atheists, always think like Pharisses and assume that if they do something totally insane, that God will send their idea of a messiah to save them.

    Put that pair together, and the entire world should fear.

    Chapter 11

    "Aryan tribes, often almost ridiculously small in number, subjugated foreign peoples and, stimulated by the conditions of life which their new country offered them (fertility, the nature of the climate, etc.), and profiting also by the abundance of manual labour furnished them by the inferior race, they developed intellectual and organizing faculties which had hitherto been dormant in these conquering tribes. Within the course of a few thousand years, or even centuries, they gave life to cultures whose primitive traits completely corresponded to the character of the founders, though modified by adaptation to the peculiarities of the soil and the characteristics of the subjugated people. But finally the conquering race offended against the principles which they first had observed, namely, the maintenance of their racial stock unmixed, and they began to intermingle with the subjugated people. Thus they put an end to their own separate existence; for the original sin committed in Paradise has always been followed by the expulsion of the guilty parties."

    ...

    "(k) The Jewish domination in the State seems now so fully assured that not only can he now afford to call himself a Jew once again, but he even acknowledges freely and openly what his ideas are on racial and political questions. A section of the Jews avows itself quite openly as an alien people, but even here there is another falsehood. When the Zionists try to make the rest of the world believe that the new national consciousness of the Jews will be satisfied by the establishment of a Jewish State in Palestine, the Jews thereby adopt another means to dupe the simple-minded Gentile. They have not the slightest intention of building up a Jewish State in Palestine so as to live in it. What they really are aiming at is to establish a central organization for their international swindling and cheating. As a sovereign State, this cannot be controlled by any of the other States. Therefore it can serve as a refuge for swindlers who have been found out and at the same time a high-school for the training of other swindlers.

    As a sign of their growing presumption and sense of security, a certain section of them openly and impudently proclaim their Jewish nationality while another section hypocritically pretend that they are German, French or English as the case may be. Their blatant behaviour in their relations with other people shows how clearly they envisage their day of triumph in the near future.

    The black-haired Jewish youth lies in wait for hours on end, satanically glaring at and spying on the unsuspicious girl whom he plans to seduce, adulterating her blood and removing her from the bosom of her own people. The Jew uses every possible means to undermine the racial foundations of a subjugated people. In his systematic efforts to ruin girls and women he strives to break down the last barriers of discrimination between him and other peoples. The Jews were responsible for bringing negroes into the Rhineland, with the ultimate idea of bastardizing the white race which they hate and thus lowering its cultural and political level so that the Jew might dominate. For as long as a people remain racially pure and are conscious of the treasure of their blood, they can never be overcome by the Jew. Never in this world can the Jew become master of any people except a bastardized people.

    That is why the Jew systematically endeavours to lower the racial quality of a people by permanently adulterating the blood of the individuals who make up that people.

    In the field of politics he now begins to replace the idea of democracy by introducing the dictatorship of the proletariat. In the masses organized under the Marxist banners he has found a weapon which makes it possible for him to discard democracy, so as to subjugate and rule in a dictatorial fashion by the aid of brute force.

    More accurately the psychopaths moved here. As countries become more powerful they move in and take over. It’s very hard to argue that the average American has control of his country and it’s military foreign policy. After all large numbers of people voted for no more war and no more intervening in other countries affairs. They did so for Bush Jr., Obama and for Trump. All said they would stop interventions. It’s said that supposedly all this war making is making the average American richer by dominating others. I say bullshit it makes probably 50,0000 people richer who profit and control the war State and a bunch of bankers. The rest of us want nothing to do with it.

    In this particular instance, it wouldn’t include the head of every Cabinet department, nor anything nearly so broad as that; but, clearly, since the key decision, to implement the “super-fuze” on “all warheads deployed on US ballistic missile submarines” was made by Obama, he is the principal person reasonably to be blamed for this situation. However, Trump as the person who has inherited this situation from his predecessor has, as yet, given no indication at all of reversing and eliminating the now-operative top U.S. strategic objective of conquering Russia. The more time that passes without Trump’s announcing to the public that he has inherited this morally repulsive operation from his predecessor and is removing all of the super-fuses, the more that Trump himself is taking ownership of Obama’s plan.
     
    Reading statements like this one, and other observations by Philip Giraldi, have reluctantly made me into a conspiracy minded person when it comes to politics. After all, does anyone seriously believe that the pretentious, metro-sexual Barry Obama entertained any such "Dr. Evil" like plots to concur the world prior to being sworn in as POTUS? Of course he didn't. He, even less than Trump, probably had no idea what he was getting himself into by running for president. It must've been a shocker for both of these men when they found out just how much potentially damaging intel that the CIA and NSA has on them through perfectly legal NSA spying. Would the CIA assassinate a president who got in the way of America's interests (as defined by them)? Maybe, but why would they need to?

    The Deep State is in complete control of our foreign policy now. Our democracy and freedom were already largely lost due to giant asymmetries in knowledge between the US Citizenry and elected officials on the one hand, and the Deep State on the other. "Knowledge is power" as they say. This state of affairs was gradually imposed on an unsuspecting public through such legislative gems as the Omnibus Counterterrorism Act of 1995 and the Patriot Act.

    “…The Deep State is in complete control of our foreign policy now…”

    Let’s call a spade a spade. It’s the Jews. Same as the old “it’s not the Jews it’s the Zionist” trick. Well that’s a lie too. It’s the Jews. We only attack people who either threaten the Jews or threaten their world wide banking scheme where they print unlimited cash for free and we pay them interest and principle for the privilege of…well I don’t what for. We’re just getting screwed.

    There is no Deep State as an independent entity. It’s the Jews. Yes other psychopaths may be aligned with the Jews but Jews run the show.

    The ones saying it’s the Anglos or the NWO or Reptiles or whatever need to answer the question, how many TV stations, radio stations, magazines, book publishers, cable channels, etc., etc., do the Anglos or the NWO or Reptiles or whatever own?

    Preposterous bullshit. The Jews did 9-11. They owned the building and the security to wire them up. They owned the remote control systems that allowed them to hijack the planes. They control enough of the US government to get away with it and the rest they threatened enough to shut up with Anthrax(stolen from our labs by a Jew). They had Mossad agents filming the whole thing and they own the news networks that channeled the whole investigation onto the Arabs.

    If the Jews controlled access to building 7, and they did, then it falling the same speed as a rock dropped in air means it had NO support. None at all. The building had to be held up with air to fall at that speed. Well we all know the building wasn’t floating ion the air so that means the bottom was demoed out from under it.

    I am very much appreciating this article and many comments.

    Having some military time, at peace, thankfully, and interest in arcane English words, I am knowing the diff.between material and materiel, fuze and fuse, etc.

    What this article and all of the comments are to lacking is a definition of 'super-fuze'.

    I am suspecting that it is just a mis-use of the word 'fuze'.

    If Mr. Zuess or a commentor could providing a definition, it would be an aid to comprehension.

    Many seem to be confused about what a super fuse does. What it is is a very precise detonation device that makes sure the weapon fires at exactly the right time. Since all weapons have Circular Area of Probability CEP error then detonating at the right height at the right time can be very important IF the weapon is not right on target. Example. If the weapon is short then you’d want it to detonate late when it’s as close to the silo as possible. The height is not as important as being right over the target. If it’s long then you’d want it to detonate at a higher altitude when it’s still right exactly over the target to get maximum pressure on the target. Pressure drops off VERY rapidly away from the blast. Here’s a good page that explains it. Look at the diagram “detonation spread”.

    http://portside.org/2017-03-05/how-us-nuclear-force-modernization-undermining-strategic-stability-burst-height

    I wonder how it works. The nosecone is going really fast. It must be complicated to accurately determine exactly where it is and exactly how high over the target. The how high could be easy to find but the where part would be tricky.

    Thank you for the kind reply, but I do have a good understanding of the principles (physical, ballistic, and geometric) involved.

    You cannot say how the 'super-fuze' operates. I know, even if you did know, you would not be able to say. but I stay with my earlier view that it is just rubbish propaganda.

    If somebody from the Russian Air and Space forces would explain it to me, I would be more inclined to believe.

    I stay by my earlier comment, once one or two explode, whatever guidance systems the others have become useless for precision.

    Nuclear war isn't a reality, it's a game of chess bluffs and the winner defeats the loser when there is only a logical option of loss. Because when supremacy is achieved, and understood by the opponent, you don't suddenly nuke them - you take its periphery (Ukraine, Baltics and E. Europe, and other color revolution hot-spots), you destabilize it's source of income (oil), you cut her off from the financial world (sanctions), you ostracize them politically (media/hacking), and you deny them future income (Syria) while cementing their future (denying the New Silk Road by local animosity - maritime disputes, arming India, etc).

    Real sudden catastrophic loss never materializes because we live in a non-zero sum situation - called living on the same planet - where abrupt destabilization backfires onto you from nuclear fallout and global market failure. It's just a check-mate scenario understood by both parties that begets a slow suffocation due to 'pawn sacrifice'.

    Unless you don't have nuclear weapons...then your country and lore is up for the taking on a whim.

    Pretty accurate and perceptive analysis. The rich and powerful are essentially cowards; because they have much to hold on to and not want to lose. They never take great risks that might susbstantially curtail their affluence and power. Trying to win a careful game of chess is all that they are capable of.

    MAD only works if both sides are sane. That is, unless the elites initiating this conquest of Russia already have their accomodations prepared to survive the nuclear Holocaust in which case they're not insane or suicidal, merely evil beyond comparison. I believe that to be the case. For the rest of us, of course, it means adios muchachos.

    The nuclear conflict could be predated by another nuclear disaster in Chernobyl, which would contaminate western territories of Russia as well as countries of western Europe. http://theduran.com/europe-threatened-nuclear-catastrophe-ukraines-reactors-dangerous-condition/

    “…the radical forces controlling Ukraine have carried their irrational Russophobic obsession to the extreme of risking multiple nuclear meltdowns in the country. They refuse to cooperate with the Russian designer of Ukraine’s reactors or purchase the nuclear fuel intended for them, instead ordering fuel from Japanese-owned US company Westinghouse. There have already been multiple emergency shutdowns of Ukrainian reactors due to problems caused by the incompatibility of the Westinghouse fuel. Yet scarcely a peep has been raised about this issue. Another nuclear catastrophe in Ukraine would spread radioactive fallout over most of western Europe, just like happened with Chernobyl.”
    Well. That’s the price of vassalage.

    If you think the President makes final decisions on all matters, I have a beach front property to sell you in Iowa. He is the public face of career Pentagon, State Department, and other Deep State proxies. Not a capstone critical thinker but a fall man.

    Nuclear war isn't a reality, it's a game of chess bluffs and the winner defeats the loser when there is only a logical option of loss. Because when supremacy is achieved, and understood by the opponent, you don't suddenly nuke them - you take its periphery (Ukraine, Baltics and E. Europe, and other color revolution hot-spots), you destabilize it's source of income (oil), you cut her off from the financial world (sanctions), you ostracize them politically (media/hacking), and you deny them future income (Syria) while cementing their future (denying the New Silk Road by local animosity - maritime disputes, arming India, etc).

    Real sudden catastrophic loss never materializes because we live in a non-zero sum situation - called living on the same planet - where abrupt destabilization backfires onto you from nuclear fallout and global market failure. It's just a check-mate scenario understood by both parties that begets a slow suffocation due to 'pawn sacrifice'.

  147. The proponents of war appear to be directed by arrogance and stupidity rather than logic and reason. Recall the episode a couple of years back when the USS Donald Cook had its electrical totally taken out. It stood helplessly as Russian jets flew overhead letting them know that at any time they could have blown it out of the water. It was reported that some twenty-nine officers resigned following that incident. Certainly the Pentagon is aware.

    The same technology could render an entire US fleet inoperable. So too, it could be used to intercept missiles, turn them around, and send them back to from where they came. It makes one wonder if the true intent is to conquer Russia or kill off the American public. It would certainly be a quicker way to ensure their demise than is currently being accomplished by Monsanto, the pharmaceuticals, and contrails.

    Yet, there may be an entirely different agenda. Perhaps the neocons are hyping the prospect of war in order to keep the attention of the American people on that rather than the fact that the entire world banking system is failing. Or, perhaps it is simply that the world beast has been mortally wounded and it is determined to fight till its last breath. Regardless of the incentive, the likely outcome is that the world is going to rid itself of the evil powers that have been in control for a long time and introduce a new era of peace and prosperity.

    I do not doubt that the Deep State's objective is to destroy Russia, but I' skeptical that this "super-fuze" amounts to any kind of decisive step in that direction. The Pentagon's claimed effectiveness for its gosh-wow gadgetry has latterly been orders of magnitude above the reality of the situation. We've just spent the better part of two decades being unable to make meaningful progress in freaking Afghanistan, for crying out loud.

    Frankly, I do not think that America's transgendered military could so much as conquer Costa Rica, let alone take on a nuclear armed Russia.

    It would have been nice if the article explained the “super fuse”.

    Many seem to be confused about what a super fuse does. What it is is a very precise detonation device that makes sure the weapon fires at exactly the right time. Since all weapons have Circular Area of Probability CEP error then detonating at the right height at the right time can be very important IF the weapon is not right on target. Example. If the weapon is short then you'd want it to detonate late when it's as close to the silo as possible. The height is not as important as being right over the target. If it's long then you'd want it to detonate at a higher altitude when it's still right exactly over the target to get maximum pressure on the target. Pressure drops off VERY rapidly away from the blast. Here's a good page that explains it. Look at the diagram "detonation spread".

    http://portside.org/2017-03-05/how-us-nuclear-force-modernization-undermining-strategic-stability-burst-height

    I wonder how it works. The nosecone is going really fast. It must be complicated to accurately determine exactly where it is and exactly how high over the target. The how high could be easy to find but the where part would be tricky.

    When the D5 was first deployed, we were talking about a CEP of 800 ft. It’s now 30 years later. I think this “super fuse” is a bit overblown.

    I disagree. They want 10,000 PSI pressure to destroy silos. It's really high and the blast pressure reduces with distance VERY fast. I couldn't a direct 200Kton blast nuke chart but I did find some other computer resources and look up nuke map.

    https://surviveanukeattack.com/2008/06/16/mapping-an-explosion-blast-map-calculators/

    Look at this height chart for 1Kton blast and you will see the optimal height is very small and falls off quickly.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Blastcurves_psi.svg

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Effects_of_nuclear_explosions

    To be sure I'm only talking about blasting silos. Russia has a great number of mobile launchers that I doubt they have any way of reliable tracking even if they think they do so and I'm certainly not advocating starting a nuclear war. So in reality more accurate silo busting doesn't mean you could first strike and win.

    Even worse China has??????nuclear weapons. We haven't a clue. If they say they know then I believe they are either liars or are deceiving themselves. They could have 50 thousand for all we know. We know they have tunnels all over the place with re loadable nuclear launchers. The idea that they have only a few hundred nuclear weapons seems a farce to me.

    This is an astute and succinct description of what may have been had the US been able to act a decade ago. Instead, due in no small part to the ideologically driven strategic myopia of a certain, dominant faction, it got bogged down in MENA, and it’s only inertia that makes it seem tantalizingly accurate today, but not quite. The “not quite” is what is putting paid to the Empire today…

    Today…
    - You almost took Ukraine, but not quite. The opponent snatched the only part worth having out of your mouth, and then pulled back to watch you try to digest the inedible gristle.
    - You almost took the Baltics, but not quite, and now the opponent waits (is waiting) you out as their non-Russian populations emigrate in droves.
    - You tried to destabilize his oil income, but not quite. He devalued his currency, increased production and his oil companies made record profits while your shale oil companies dove deep into the red and went bankrupt and your Arab allies had to borrow money to meet their budgets lest their restless populations revolt and threw both you and their comprador elites out.
    - You cut him off from the financial world, but not quite. He partnered with others (eg: China) to create their own world while nailing your allies with devastating counter-sanctions in agriculture and consumer goods. These also unleashed his dormant domestic entrepreneurship to take advantage of low competition, and now makes him less dependent than ever.
    - You ostracised him politically, but not quite. He brought new partners and expanded the reach of alternate structures such as SCO and BRICS, while his political personalities now top the charts around the world and Moscow has become the place to go when you need something done.
    - You (try to) deny him future income (Syria), but not quite. There he remains, organizing peace conferences with your proxies leaving you to wonder how/when he got there, how he’s staying there, or how to dislodge him.
    - You (try to) cement his future by denying him the New Silk Roads, but not quite. The project is vastly larger than you, road construction slows a little and takes different paths, while you bog down in Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere (N. Korea?). When you’re gone, construction will resume apace, leaving you and the Indias of the world peering in with their noses pressed against the glass.

    And how did the opponent, seemingly so weak a decade ago, turn table after table on the Empire a decade later? I submit that in no small part it was his understanding, and the Empire’s misunderstanding, who actually had nuclear supremacy, and who was stretched a mile wide and an inch deep, and a dollar short. As the Russians say: “The dogs may bark, but the caravan moves on.”

    Yes a very good summation of the situation. I don't believe the people running the US are our best as our best are not in "the club". The people running things are just the most aggressive who have lots of money and have blackmail info on government officials. They probably think they're the best.

    What's tragic is the lost opportunity after the cold war. We could have made peace with Russia and welcomed them in. We could have allied with them and together become a force for good and greatness for the whole planet. It's so tragic.

    Preposterous bullshit. The Jews did 9-11. They owned the building and the security to wire them up. They owned the remote control systems that allowed them to hijack the planes. They control enough of the US government to get away with it and the rest they threatened enough to shut up with Anthrax(stolen from our labs by a Jew). They had Mossad agents filming the whole thing and they own the news networks that channeled the whole investigation onto the Arabs.

    If the Jews controlled access to building 7, and they did, then it falling the same speed as a rock dropped in air means it had NO support. None at all. The building had to be held up with air to fall at that speed. Well we all know the building wasn't floating ion the air so that means the bottom was demoed out from under it.

    I always wondered what the anthrax thing was about. Your explanation makes sense.

    Was the Washington sniper the same?

    I wish we Brits really were the evil geniuses we are supposed to be.
     
    From where do you think many Americans internalized the characteristic that Miro23 pegged:

    "Americans have shown no remorse whatsoever for the murder of 100.000′s of civilians in the Middle East. They are indifferent to the WMD lies, don’t care about the destruction they have caused, and show zero empathy for their victims." http://www.unz.com/article/americas-top-scientists-confirm-u-s-goal-now-is-to-conquer-russia/#comment-1860779
     
    Britain's Lee Child created superhero Jack Reacher. In "Night School" Child locates Reacher in Hamburg, where he beats up young Germans who call out that they are fed up with being occupied by USA; having delivered the characteristic chops to the face then kick to the nuts, Reacher taunts the downed German patriots, er, neo-Nazis, "how does it feel to lose a war?"

    When, still in Hamburg, Reacher ultimately confronts the head of a group of Germans attempting to revitalize German identity and culture, Reacher shoots him in the heart and then the head, carrying out the ideals he had learned in West Point Military Academy bull sessions. For Reacher -- Child -- British propagandists -- New York publishers, a German who is not fully on board with USA (Anglo-zionist) demands is, by definition, a Nazi deserving only to be extrajudicially exterminated.

    American (Anglo-zionist) popular culture reinforces "lack of remorse" at every turn and by numerous venues --

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9r0haVPDAo

    We'll put a boot in your eye, It's the American way . . .

    As Ron Unz and Dr. Stephen Sniegoski revealed on this forum, British propaganda has a long history: it was their efforts that lied the American people into World War II

    The Conquest of the United States by Britain ... with a little help from her friends (by Stephen Sniegoski)

    and

    American Pravda: Alexander Cockburn and the British Spies by Ron Unz

    I can't think of anything more evil than lying to an entire population in order to induce them to hate, and then kill, another entire population.

    "Who sins not with the tongue sins not at all." -

    I read ” Night School” Reacher is sent to Germany to find out who stole some sort of weapon of mass destruction. He finds the thief in the last few chapters. Most of the book tells how he discovers neo Nazis lurking everywhere.

    The Reacher series is totally PC and liberal. All the villains are evil
    White men. The military blacks and women are far superior to the military White men.
    In one of his earlier books he encountered
    ” White supremacist Nazi” enclaves in the rural northwest. But actually Lee Child’s books are not as PC and liberal as most fiction written after 1970.

    You cannot say how the ‘super-fuze’ operates. I know, even if you did know, you would not be able to say. but I stay with my earlier view that it is just rubbish propaganda.

    If somebody from the Russian Air and Space forces would explain it to me, I would be more inclined to believe.

Instead, due in no small part to the ideologically driven strategic myopia of a certain, dominant faction, it got bogged down in MENA, and it's only inertia that makes it seem tantalizingly accurate today, but not quite. The "not quite" is what is putting paid to the Empire today...

    Today...
    - You almost took Ukraine, but not quite. The opponent snatched the only part worth having out of your mouth, and then pulled back to watch you try to digest the inedible gristle.
    - You almost took the Baltics, but not quite, and now the opponent waits (is waiting) you out as their non-Russian populations emigrate in droves.
    - You tried to destabilize his oil income, but not quite. He devalued his currency, increased production and his oil companies made record profits while your shale oil companies dove deep into the red and went bankrupt and your Arab allies had to borrow money to meet their budgets lest their restless populations revolt and threw both you and their comprador elites out.
    - You cut him off from the financial world, but not quite. He partnered with others (eg: China) to create their own world while nailing your allies with devastating counter-sanctions in agriculture and consumer goods. These also unleashed his dormant domestic entrepreneurship to take advantage of low competition, and now makes him less dependent than ever.
    - You ostracised him politically, but not quite. He brought new partners and expanded the reach of alternate structures such as SCO and BRICS, while his political personalities now top the charts around the world and Moscow has become the place to go when you need something done.
    - You (try to) deny him future income (Syria), but not quite. There he remains, organizing peace conferences with your proxies leaving you to wonder how/when he got there, how he's staying there, or how to dislodge him.
    - You (try to) cement his future by denying him the New Silk Roads, but not quite. The project is vastly larger than you, road construction slows a little and takes different paths, while you bog down in Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere (N. Korea?). When you're gone, construction will resume apace, leaving you and the Indias of the world peering in with their noses pressed against the glass.

    And how did the opponent, seemingly so weak a decade ago, turn table after table on the Empire a decade later? I submit that in no small part it was his understanding, and the Empire's misunderstanding, who actually had nuclear supremacy, and who was stretched a mile wide and an inch deep, and a dollar short. As the Russians say: "The dogs may bark, but the caravan moves on."

    Yes a very good summation of the situation. I don’t believe the people running the US are our best as our best are not in “the club”. The people running things are just the most aggressive who have lots of money and have blackmail info on government officials. They probably think they’re the best.

    What’s tragic is the lost opportunity after the cold war. We could have made peace with Russia and welcomed them in. We could have allied with them and together become a force for good and greatness for the whole planet. It’s so tragic.

    US goal is conquest and enslavement of mankind.
    Adolf shared that goal
     
    Adolf did NOT "share the goal" of "conquest and enslavement of mankind."
    Adolf's goal was nationalistic, not global; the clue is hidden in plain sight:

    Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (NSDAP)

    National Socialist German Workers' Party

    US agenda is (among other things) to force other nations to conduct their finances under US-Federal Reserve/fiat-currency - debt-basis; Germany under NSDAP determined to reject that system and established control of its own economy and system of finance.

    I agree you’ve covered it correctly. I would just hit the agree button but I can’t it to work.

    @Seraphim
    Conquest of Russia (the 'Heartland' of the 'World-Island') was the single minded obsession, followed with uncanny determination, of the 'Anglo-Zionist' Empire (supposed successor of the not so mythical 'Arthurian Atlantic British Empire') from its bastard birth in the glorious days of the 'Gloriana', the hideous 'Virgin Queen' witch and her 'Magus' John Dee, to the theories of Mackinder ("Who rules East Europe commands the Heartland; Who rules the Heartland commands the World Island; Who rules the World Island commands the World."), masked by the 'collateral damages' of the 'colonization' (i.e. conquest) of 'The Indies' (America and India proper), steps towards the encirclement of the 'Heartland'. The 'Great Game' the Viking merchant-adventurers cum pirates (financed by the Jewish money lenders and receivers) played against the Powers that blocked their way to the gold and spices of the Eldorado of East Asia and the inexhaustible source of slaves that was 'East Europe'. That block was the Orthodox Russia since the 'betrayal' of the Baptism of the Viking Vladimir. The 'Vikings' and the receivers of stolen goods never forgave it. They realize that as long as the 'Heartland' is not conquered none of their other conquests is secure.

    “…Conquest of Russia (the ‘Heartland’ of the ‘World-Island’) was the single minded obsession, followed with uncanny determination, of the ‘Anglo-Zionist’ Empire…”

    I agree very, very, very much with you’re emphasis on the Heartland of the World Island but not that’s it’s necessarily in Russia and I don’t necessarily think they believed they could own it themselves so much as they didn’t want any one European power to own it.

    I haven’t heard anyone else say this(but me) but the World Island theory is dead. Why? Space travel. Low Earth orbit is now the World Island. Here’s Sam J.’s New world Island theory, “If you control low Earth orbit you control the World”. Of course it’s not as subtle as the former World Island theory in that to stop movement you have to bomb from orbit causing all kinds of heartache and trouble but in a pinch it can be done and the results obvious on who controls what.

    Methinks you have it backwards. One controls the Heartland in order to control low earth orbit, not the other way 'round.
    Without the Heartland, you'll soon find yourself unable to hold low earth orbit. The window opened for the US in the late '60s/early '70s, and the US got a few decades to run with it, but as we can see, the Heartland is in the process of (re-)establishing control.

    This type of story is made up to frighten children and people with child like minds. Even the most extreme Zionist or American imperialist knows full well that even a limited nuclear strike on Russia or China, even without near certain retaliation, would make life on earth cease to exist and nuclear winter would destroy the entire planet. Also it is a well known fact that Russia has for years had a few small atom bombs inside her embassy in Washington. Talk about retaliation! Take out your enemy’s capital! Also the extreme Zionists in Israel and the West are fully aware that Russia long ago gave orders that if Russia were ever attacked with wmds that Russia’s far flung air force and navy would totally destroy Israel and her frenemy Saudi Arabia. So folks sleep well. Dr. Strangelove and General Conquer The World are not going to start a nuclear war with Russia nor China nor they with us. However the psychopath in North Korea known as Kim Jong Un or the mad mullahs in Iran if they get atomic warheads and long range missiles might just decide to take out Israel and the U.S. At this stage the U.S., Russia, France, Britain, and China, the declared nuclear powers, need to sit down and stand down and figure out a way to stop this type of nuclear proliferation among small rogue states cold. When you have real nut jobs in power in remote and small dictatorships their acquisition of actual atomic weapons and the means to deliver them could be very deadly and destructive for the entire world if only a handful of these weapons of mass destruction were actually used—the fallout would be worldwide and probably poison and gradually destroy the entire planet. The Great Powers need to get together and do whatever it takes to take North Korea’s arsenal out and keep Iran nuclear free.

    I doubt American leaders have ever wanted to conquer Russia. If we ever did, how would we administer our new colony? We can’t even manage the 12 percent of our population who commits most of the crime and causes most of our problems.

    Plus, the Russians are White, the source of all evil on earth. The elites certainly don’t want more Whites in the American empire.

    And I don’t see the central Asians and Muslims in Russia rushing to join the blacks, Browns, Asians, Indians, Jews, feminazis LGBTQs and snowflakes, academics and liberals in their various causes.
