Not everyone likes to hear about the threat of nuclear war. Some find refuge in denial and say that nuclear war is impossible because it makes no sense. Unfortunately, humankind has a long record of doing things that make no sense.

In previous posts in recent years I have pointed out both written documents and changes in US war doctrine that indicate that Washington is preparing a preemptive nuclear attack on Russia and China. More recently, I have shown that Washington’s demonization of Russia and President Putin, the incessant lies about Russian deeds and intentions, and the refusal of Washington to cooperate with Russia on any issue have convinced the Russian government that Washington is preparing the Western populations for an attack on Russia. It is obvious that China has come to the same conclusion.

It is extremely dangerous to all of mankind for Washington to convince two nuclear powers that Washington is preparing a preemptive nuclear strike against them. It is impossible to imagine a more reckless and irresponsible act. Yet this is precisely what Washington has done.

Lt. Gen. Viktor Poznikhir, Deputy Head of Operations of the Russian General Staff has concluded that Washington in pursuit of global hegemony is implementing an anti-ballistic missile system that Washington believes can prevent a Russian nuclear response to a US pre-emptive attack. http://www.fort-russ.com/2017/04/us-forces-preparing-sudden-nuclear.html

Careful studies have convinced the Russians that Washington is investing in and arranging components that have no other function than to devastate Russia and cripple the country’s retaliatory capability. In short, Washington is preparing to launch a nuclear war. https://www.rt.com/news/386276-us-missile-shield-russia-strike/

As I explained previously, the theory behind this insane scheme is that after America’s preemptive strike Russia will be so devastated that Russia would not retaliate with any remaining forces out of fear that Washington would launch a second major strike. Washington also plans to use agents in place to assassinate as many members as possible of the Russian government, thus leaving the government in confusion without leadership.

Yes, the insane American/Israeli neoconservatives are this determined to exercise hegemony over the world.

Yes, Washington is sufficiently criminally insane to risk the destruction of life on earth based on the supposition that Washington’s offense will work perfectly and Russia and China’s capabilities will be so degraded that no retaliatory response will occur.

ORDER IT NOW

One might hope that the American and Western populations would be outraged that Washington is so power-crazed that Washington is subjecting all life to such risks. But there is no sign of an anti-war movement. The Western leftwing has degenerated into Identity Politics in which the only threat comes from white heterosexual males who are portrayed as misogynists, racists, and homophopes. The Western leftwing is no longer war-conscious. Indeed, the leftwing has become diverted into such silly irrelevancies as transgender rights to toilets of their choice. The impotence of the Western left is so overwhelming that the left might as well not exist.

Where then is the hope? Russia and China cannot simply sit there and await America’s preemptive nuclear strike.

Possibly Washington does not intend a preemptive strike, but only to convince Russia and China that Washington’s preparations give Washington so much predominance in a conflict that Russia and China will submit to Washington’s hegemony. But this interpretation of Washington’s intention implies no less risk. Why would Russia and China wait for Washington to complete its preparations for war, preparations that permit Washington to turn Russia and China into puppet states?

The US military/security complex has clearly prevailed over Trump’s intention to normalize relations between the US and Russia, and anti-Russian venom continues to pour out of NATO and Washington’s European vassal states. The majority of the American people seem to have accepted the propaganda that Russia is the number one threat to the United States. With propaganda controlling the explanation, Washington’s aggressive actions are explained as defense against a threat and not as a policy that will end life on earth.

The chances are high that life on earth is approaching its end. The responsibility lies heavily on the American people, whose success, due to the mistakes of others, made Americans think that they are exceptional and privileged. Unaware of the inhumane threat to all life that is embodied in the neoconservative claim that Americans are exceptional and indispensable, the self-satisfied American public is unaware of the consequences of such hubris. Hubris is leading them, and the entire world, to slaughter in thermo-nuclear war.

The neoconservative claim of American exceptionalism is the identical claim made for Germans by Hitler. If Americans are indispensable, everyone else is dispensable and can be “bombed into the stone age” as one US government official put it, or nuked as Washington intends to do to Russia and China. The claim of American exceptionalism is not accepted by Russia and China. Therefore, the insane, crazed monsters who rule over the West in Washington are bringing life on earth to an end.

And there are no protests. The idiot British, the idiot Germans, the idiot French, Italians, Canadians, Australians, Belgians, Greeks, Portuguese, Spanish, Japanese, rally behind the insanity that is Washington.

And so apparently do the American people, a population stupid beyond all belief.

    This is where PCR turns into left wing distorter of history. Every time he criticizes Israel or Jewry he then sets up a Hitler/Nazi straw man to eviscerate. This way he covers his fanny from being labeled as an anti-semite and avoids alienating the “good” Jews that he considers his friends perhaps even earning some kudos from them.

    But let’s assume PCR’s interpretation of Hitler’s words and deeds is correct. This is no different than Japanese emperor Hirohito and Hideki Tojo fostering the belief that the Japanese are a superior race to all non-Japanese or Soviet Jewish propagandist Ilya Ehrenberg fostering a satanic racial hatred and blood lust of the Germans throughout the Russo-German War which climaxed with the mass rape of German women following the fall of Berlin.

    In contemporary times, we have revanchist Mexicans who seek to recapture the American Southwest through high levels of illegal and legal immigration and evict Anglos and other non-Mexicans…..a belief system that’s never been discouraged by the Mexican government.

    There are Muslims in Egypt, Syria and Iraq who believe that Islam is superior to Christians, Yazidis and other non-Islamic religions and seek to forcibly convert, enslave or murder them. And the Jewish controlled media merely yawns. PCR has hurled more broadsides at the Ukrainian neo-Nazis than ISIS, who are far more bloodthirsty and murderous than the former.

    Israeli Jews barely treat Palestinian Christians and Muslims as third class citizens and discriminate against them.

    Virtually every nation, racial and religion group sees itself as exceptional and superior to other nations and groups. It’s only unique, noteworthy and reprehensible on the occasions when Europeans have done it.

    Which ABM system would that be? Not the one in Eastern Europe, which would be useless against Russia’s submarine-launched cruise missiles (SLCMs). No, as I understand it, the neocons are advocating the use of tactical nuclear weapons (tac-nukes) in the belief that they could that way keep the conflict limited. But I find it doubtful that the loser of such an encounter would refuse to escalate. Very dangerous, indeed …

    The Russians just don't put that many submarines to sea anymore. The old cold war plan was for the US attack submarines to sink the Russian subs that carried SLCMs and SLBMs. I would imagine that is still the plan today and the task has grown much simpler.

    You mean nuclear war? Against it, of course. But then, it might take a nuclear war to finally destroy America's capability to wage war and constantly threaten everyone.

    However, PCR should stick to the script and stop drawing parallels between Nazis and American (((neoconservatives))) when the latter are both the ethnic and ideological progeny of (((Trotskyite))) communists, not German national socialists.

  9. The “western leftwing” now must be regarded as completely “pro-war” and indeed “pro-nuclear war.”

    It was striking that even what was allowed within the Democrats as a ‘socialist’ and ‘opposition’ campaign by Colonel Sanders was never allowed to mention being against the military. To campaign within the Democrats, Sanders had to be pro-military, pro-war, pro-Saudi and pro-Israel. The obvious way for Sanders to pay for his programs was to cut into the trillions of dollars that the US now throws at the military so it can create problems which then need trillions more to solve. But Sanders wouldn’t touch that with a 10-foot pole in his campaign.

    Thus, we now see the limits of what’s allowed on ‘the left’. Anti-war is no-longer acceptable on the left.

    Since then, we saw most of the Sanders supporters back Hillary and her campaign of “We want nuclear war and we want it now.” We saw the Sanders people refuse to back a candidate like Dr. Stein who supported Bernie’s social agenda but added a pro-peace, antiwar element to it. We’ve seen most of the left go out and protest strongly and in some cases violently because they thought they weren’t going to get their war. And we’ve seen the left suddenly fall in love with The Donald the second he fires off a bunch of cruise missiles.

    The modern left is now pro-war, and believes in violence and intimidation to accomplish its goals. To the extent that there was any anti-war sentiment found in American politics in the most recent cycle, it was found within the Republican Party and on the right in general.

    And regarding Washington under DT moving towards nuclear madness : Yeah sure he, DT, and his family are itching to commit suicide, just for the fun of it.

  10. @Ken

    I have long noticed that saying “We are an exceptional people who must rule the world” bears little to no difference from “We are a master race that must rule the world”. Both statements are identical except for a slight change in terminology. And that comes from the fact that while appealing to the German “race” worked in Germany, the American people don’t define themselves as a ‘race’. So the political terminology shifted to ‘exceptional people’ which more fits the American mindset.

    The dangerous part is the “must rule the world” part that is included in both.

    … the theory behind this insane scheme is that after America’s preemptive strike Russia will be so devastated that Russia would not retaliate with any remaining forces out of fear that Washington would launch a second major strike.

    The theory seems to originate with this article in Foreign Affairs: https://www.foreignaffairs.com/articles/united-states/2006-03-01/rise-us-nuclear-primacy

    The authors, after offering a laundry list of how Russia’s inheritance of the USSR’s military and nuclear arsenals had deteriorated, cite their own analysis, concluding that “what (it) suggests is profound: Russia’s leaders can no longer count on a survivable nuclear deterrent. And unless they reverse course rapidly, Russia’s vulnerability will only increase over time.”
    Looking at the USM’s weapons development and procurement, the authors further conclude that “…the weight of the evidence suggests that Washington is, in fact, deliberately seeking nuclear primacy. For one thing, U.S. leaders have always aspired to this goal. And the nature of the changes to the current arsenal and official rhetoric and policies support this conclusion.”

    From what is apparent to us today, the Kremlin read the article and, well, “reversed course rapidly” indeed. A decade later, some say that Russia’s nuclear arsenal is more modern and potent than the US’s. Certainly, Russia has exhibited a change in its conventional force capabilities that has astonished NATO.
    If the US is just now waking up to the possibility that its goal of nuclear primacy is in jeopardy, and with it Global Hegemony, and a “use it or lose it” mentality is gaining traction, then we’ve arrived at a very hairy edge indeed.
    PCR says we’re staring into the abyss right now. He knows a lot more about Washington’s thinking than I do, so I am more than a little concerned.

    The neoconservative claim of American exceptionalism is the identical claim made for Germans by Hitler.
     
    This is where PCR turns into left wing distorter of history. Every time he criticizes Israel or Jewry he then sets up a Hitler/Nazi straw man to eviscerate. This way he covers his fanny from being labeled as an anti-semite and avoids alienating the "good" Jews that he considers his friends perhaps even earning some kudos from them.

    But let's assume PCR's interpretation of Hitler's words and deeds is correct. This is no different than Japanese emperor Hirohito and Hideki Tojo fostering the belief that the Japanese are a superior race to all non-Japanese or Soviet Jewish propagandist Ilya Ehrenberg fostering a satanic racial hatred and blood lust of the Germans throughout the Russo-German War which climaxed with the mass rape of German women following the fall of Berlin.

    In contemporary times, we have revanchist Mexicans who seek to recapture the American Southwest through high levels of illegal and legal immigration and evict Anglos and other non-Mexicans.....a belief system that's never been discouraged by the Mexican government.

    There are Muslims in Egypt, Syria and Iraq who believe that Islam is superior to Christians, Yazidis and other non-Islamic religions and seek to forcibly convert, enslave or murder them. And the Jewish controlled media merely yawns. PCR has hurled more broadsides at the Ukrainian neo-Nazis than ISIS, who are far more bloodthirsty and murderous than the former.

    Israeli Jews barely treat Palestinian Christians and Muslims as third class citizens and discriminate against them.

    Virtually every nation, racial and religion group sees itself as exceptional and superior to other nations and groups. It's only unique, noteworthy and reprehensible on the occasions when Europeans have done it.

    The Democratic Party Voting….the nonwhite Democratic Party…is the War Party against Christian Russia…think Maxine Waters…John Lewis…

    Native Born White American Working Class Americans…way more friendly to Christian Russia….

    Paul Craig Roberts=an enthusiast for importing the highly racialized nonwhite legal immigrant Democtatic Party Voting Bloc…..
