Hamas preparing terrorism infrastructure against Israel

Defense minister says Hamas is preparing to moment it decides to renew violence, adds Israel is working to thwart that.

Hamas is digging attack tunnels as part of its efforts to create a terrorism infrastructure against Israel for future attacks, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said Sunday, adding that Israel is concerned by the threat and is acting to counter it.

Speaking at the Soroka University Medical Center in Beersheba, where he was visiting IDF soldiers wounded when a Hamas tunnel bomb went off during an army demolition mission over the weekend.

Ya’alon added that Israel views Hamas as the sovereign entity in the Gaza Strip.

“It is the one digging tunnels and controlling Gaza,” Ya’alon said. “We say again: Quiet will be met with quiet. All provocations will be met with a firm response by us. We’ll continue to act as we’ve acted until now.”

Ya’alon added that there is a connection between events in Gaza in recent days and Israel’s negotiations with the Palestinians.

“Hamas is certainly deterred and that’s why it is maintaining quiet, even after this operation. But it is preparing itself for the moment it decides to renew violence and an escalation,” he warned.

These preparations include a local production program to manufacture arms, since Hamas is unable to smuggle in weapons from Sinai due to Egyptian counter-terrorism activities and Egypt’s destruction of smuggling tunnels, Ya’alon said.

“Other organizations are also manufacturing [weapons] by themselves and the tunnels are part of these future preparations,” Ya’alon said. “When the tunnels will be ready, Hamas will attack us, that’s why we’re acting to thwart all of the intentions,” he added.

Ya’alon didn’t comment directly on reports that Israel struck a facility housing missiles destined for Hezbollah in Syria last week, but stated: “We’re not intervening in the bloody civil war and we are continuing to stress the same red lines that are known. We talk about them publicly too.

Not to allow them to transfer weapons from Syria to hostile elements, especially Hezbollah in Lebanon. Not to transfer chemical weapons to those same hostile elements, not to break the quiet on the Golan Heights, not to violate our sovereignty.”

Hamas is digging tunnels, Ya’alon said, because it is facing great difficulties in carrying out terror attacks on Israel due to the IDF’s strong defense system around the Gaza Strip. Hamas’s rockets are intercepted by Iron Dome and the terror regime pays a heavy price after firing its rockets, he argued.

“Hence, it is going underground.”

On Friday, the commander of the IDF’s Southern Command, Maj.-Gen. Sami Turgeman, visited the soldiers in the hospital and warned Hamas that any attack on Israel would be met by a “painful response.”

Mystery explosion at Iran’s Arak heavy water reactor

Tehran did its utmost to conceal the mystery blast which last week struck the heavy water reactor under construction at Arak in western Iran. It is revealed here for the first time by DEBKAfile’s intelligence and Iranian sources. The explosion, whether accidental or not, will delay for a second time the reactor’s first test with real fuel. Tehran informed the International Atomic Energy Agency in August of a previous holdup.

The cause of the blast and the extent of the damage it caused have not yet been established. According to the partial information initially reaching our sources, it occurred inside the reactor building when preparations were underway for a test scheduled for this month with artificial fuel and light water. The site of the explosion may have been the large coolant containers and the pressure gauges attached to the reactor’s core.

Iranian Atomic Council experts and intelligence agents are testing four possible causes of the explosion:

1. Sabotage.
2. A virus planted in the computers that control the systems administering the test.
3. An error in engineering calculations in the design of the coolant containers which underestimated their strength for standing up to the required level of pressure.
4. The deliberate sale to Iran of inferior steel materials that were not strong enough to withstand such pressure.

Last August, Iran informed the nuclear watchdog that the test with real fuel would be the final one before the reactor entered its running-in stage. The damage caused by the explosion will have postponed that stage indefinitely.
The Arak reactor, known as IR-40 and designed for a capacity of 40 megawatt, is the cause of deep concern in Israel because it is capable of producing plutonium for use in nuclear bombs as an alternative to enriched uranium.

Are YOU a Terrorist?

Weaponized Food to Enslave America

As the controversy surrounding the $36 reduction in food stamp entitlements continues to build as the event enters its second day, more reports regarding the government spending over $80 million to protect its own buildings from food stamp rioters continues to proliferate in the media.
Although it is possible that the controversy surrounding the food stamp program will not spread beyond the 15 million Americans that are affected, that is not likely. I am convinced that the government’s spending of over $80 million protect its buildings was merely an excuse to pre-position security forces on the street in anticipation about what’s coming, which is full-blown martial law. Food and the distribution of food, will play a central role in the administration and application of that martial law.

An Applicable Aside….

As an aside to the possibility of impending martial law, I appeared last Sunday on Shasta/Redding, CA. KCNR’s “We the People Radio”, and both hosts as well as the producer of the show informed me that the prison located just north of them at Susanville Prison, was making martial law signs. Interestingly, one of the hosts Erin Ryan, is a congressional field representative for her local congressman and as such, is not prone to public fanciful speculation. Also, since I have written about my controversy with the personnel at the Voice of Russia state-sponsored radio program, regarding martial law and what I believe to be the use of Russian soldiers to enforce that martial law, I have received numerous reports from people around the country with sightings of Russian soldiers on American soil. I think it would be an interesting project to begin to catalog and publish sightings of these Russian soldiers. Make no mistake about it, they are here and they are up to no good as the Russian media (VOR) is attempting to discredit any reports about impending martial law and the use of Russian soldiers in an effort to prevent the American public from becoming aware of the significant danger.
Speaking of the Russian media, and in particular the Voice of Russia, I recently discovered another example of how the VOR is engaged in state-sponsored propaganda activities. Approximately 6 weeks ago, I had the pleasure of interviewing Blaine Cooper and I published the contents of the interview on my website along with a video in which he appropriately confronted Sen. John McCain for being a traitor and telling the senator at a town hall meeting in Prescott, Arizona, that he should immediately resign. The video and Cooper’s accompanying story subsequently went viral. Like myself, Cooper was approached by the Russian propagandists at the VOR and asked for an interview. Mr. Cooper contacted me yesterday and informed me that he was very unhappy with the Russian media because they had inappropriately characterized his interview in much the same fashion that they had done to me. The intent of the Russians was to cast an area of controversy in his confrontation with John McCain as an example of the military versus the government. The VOR inaccurately and inappropriately characterized Mr. Cooper as a former member of the American military. Mr. Cooper makes it clear to everyone that he has never been in the American military.
As I step back and try to wonder why the VOR would attempt to mischaracterize Cooper’s background, the proverbial light came on. Why would Russian soldiers be needed to enforce American domestic martial law? The answer is simple, because the American military might not be fully counted on to enforce brutal martial law and fire upon American citizens to the degree needed to enforce compliance. The Russian military might will be needed. I see the purpose of the Cooper interview on the VOR, to promote an artificial division between the American military and the present administration of this government that has been hijacked and controlled by the central bankers of the world. Mr. Cooper will be appearing on The Common Sense Show in the last half-hour of the Sunday’s program to detail his experience with the Russian media and not surprisingly, his experience matches my experience.
One would have to be blind not to see the proliferation of this material regarding the Russians and the role that they are going to play in our future. How could we not be highly concerned about the presence of Russian soldiers on our soil? And has a reminder, FEMA has reached a bilateral agreement to train thousands of more Russian soldiers on American soil.
When one considers the compilation of the above-mentioned facts, it is extremely clear why Obama is purging the leadership of our military. Can there be any doubt that Obama is following in the footsteps of Stalin as he purged his military’s leadership prior to starving millions of Russians to death. I’m sure that this is a very sensitive comparison for our “friends” over at the state-sponsored, propaganda-filled, Voice of Russia. At this point I would like to issue a warning to all who were invited to appear on the VOR, the Russians will mischaracterize your background and your story to fit their propaganda purposes. And the fact that Russian soldiers will be used to subjugate us, I would encourage all Americans to not make the mistake I did, by appearing on the VOR.
The Past As Prologue
Is it possible that many of us are just misreading signs in our society that the Russians are going to be used to help subjugate the American people in upcoming martial law? Some might argue that it is possible that we are overreacting to a few isolated incidences, but to them I would say history speaks clearly to this fact and the American government has had a long-standing policy of creating legalistic policies designed to use food as a tool of enslavement. And these policies completely parallel past practices of time-honored despots who have done the same thing.
The rest of the article is dedicated to the historical demonstration of using food as a weapon to subjugate the masses as well as to demonstrate that the United States legal code in various presidential executive orders and have pre-positioned the necessary legal apparatus in this country to impose such draconian policies.

Historical Precedent of Governments Using Food As a Weapon

The two most notable examples of dictators using food a weapon in order to destroy the free will of their people comes from the regimes of Stalin and Hitler.
Josef Stalin engaged in his own Soviet-style Holocaust when, in 1932 and 1933, and estimated six to 20 million people in the Ukraine died from starvation when Stalin implemented his prescription of “hope and change” policies in order to eliminate the Ukrainian’s desire for becoming their own nation-state.
Upon assuming power, the Stalinist Communist regime rapidly nationalized the food industry and forced all of the region’s farms into collectives. Thus, Stalin’s version of the Holocaust came to fruition in what history has dubbed, the “Holdomor,” in which millions perished in only a two year period when the Soviet government began to exterminate the Ukrainian population by taking control of food and food production. And why would Stalin do such a thing to his own people? The Ukrainians were discussing and publicizing some very dangerous ideas about freedom, liberty and the ability to act of political autonomy.
Hitler proclaimed that food could be used as a tool “…to discipline the masses” and he did not hesitate to use the control of food as a type of carrot and stick in which he would reward accomplishment and punish failure as well as to ferment preferential class distinctions in which his armed forces received the largest food ration cards. Skilled workers who were engaged in industries critical to the building of the German war machine, received food ration cards which were slightly less in value. And, finally, the prisoners and the Jews received the lowest valued Nazi food ration cards. Food ration cards were also utilized as incentives to increase industrial production and were also increased in value when productive Nazi workers would be promoted. Food ration cards were diminished in value for the failure to meet Nazi production goals. Hitler’s use of what psychologists refer to as classical conditioning techniques reduced the will of the German population to a pack of Pavlovian dogs who were conditioned to be totally dependent upon the government for their survival. The presence of 50 million Americans on food stamps would certainly make an applicable parallel to Hitler’s practices and the potential for Obama to follow and Hitler’s footsteps.
Most recently, Somalia thug, Farah Aideed, systematically starved his people into submission as a brutal civil war raged in both Darfur and Rwanda where the Islamic regimes sought the annihilation of ‘infidels’ and the use of food was one of the primary weapons designed to force compliance. And of course, Pol Pot, Castro and Mao all used food deprivation to quarantine their political opposition and exact absolute allegiance to their respective dictatorial regimes.

“The Government Would Never Do That Because I Did Not See It On TV”

I venture to say that most individuals who get their “news” from FOX and CNN would hold fast to the belief that the benevolent U.S. government would never use food as a weapon against the American people and if they did, we would certainly all see it on television. Someone should remind these “sheeple” that this is the same U.S. government which has been caught shipping guns and drugs into Mexico underOperation Fast and Furious which has resulted in the deaths of a half dozen U.S. law enforcement officials. Yes, this is the same government which has turned a blind eye to HSBC bank setting up fictitious bank accounts in order to launder money derived from the profits of drug trafficking and running guns and then turning around and sending this money to fund various terrorist organizations. Yes, this is the same banker-hijacked government which permits the Federal Reserve to send trillions of American dollars in order to bail out their own personal banking interests in Europe. Yes, this is the same U.S. government , through the TSA, which commits second degree sexual assault on airline travelers under the guise of protecting Americans from the very terrorists that they are complicit in funding through organizations such as the HSBC bank. Therefore, it is prudent to ask the question, would the United States use food a tool of governmental policy in order to control its population? Unfortunately, this question has already been asked and answered in the affirmative.
American Government and Their Complicity in Creating a Weaponized Food Policy
It is shocking to discover just how long that the withholding of food as a weapon has been a part of government policy. The use of food by the U.S. government has been a matter of official U.S. governmental covert policy since 1974-1975.
In December, 1974, National Security Council directed by Henry Kissinger completed a classified study entitled, “National Security Study Memorandum 200: Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests.” The study was based upon the unproven claims that population growth in Lesser Developed Countries (LDC) constituted a serious risk to America’s national security.
In November 1975 President Ford, based upon the tenets of NSSM 200 outlined a classified plan to forcibly reduce population growth in LDC countries through birth control, war and famine. Ford’s new national security adviser, Brent Scowcroft, in conjunction with CIA  Director, George H. W. Bush, were tasked with implementing the plan and the secretaries of state, treasury, defense, and agriculture assisted in the implementation of these insane genocidal plans. Today, we also see the manifestation of NSSM 200 through Bill Gates’ eugenics policies of mass sterilizations and vaccinations on the continent of Africa.
NSSM 200 formally raised the question, “Would food be considered to be an instrument of national power? … Is the U.S. prepared to accept food rationing to help people who can’t/won’t control their population growth?” Kissinger has answered these questions when he stated that he was predicting a series of contrived famines, created by mandatory programs and this would make exclusive reliance on birth control programs unnecessary in this modern day application of eugenics in a scheme that would allow Henry to have his cake and eat it too in that the world would finally be rid of the “useless eaters!”
Third world population control, using food as one of the primary weapons, has long been a matter of official covert national policy and a portion of President Obama’s Executive Order (EO 13603), National Defense Resources Preparedness is a continuation of that policy. Only now, the intended targets are not the LDC’s but, instead, the targets are the American people. With one out of six Americans on food stamps, and a reduction of these benefits under way, the policy of using food as a weapon against the American people already has a significant beachhead.
13603With the stroke of his pen, Obama has total and absolute control over all food where his EO 13603 states:
e)  “Food resources” means all commodities and products, (simple, mixed, or compound), or complements to such commodities or products, that are capable of being ingested by either human beings or animals, irrespective of other uses to which such commodities or products may be put, at all stages of processing from the raw commodity to the products thereof in vendible form for human or animal consumption.  “Food resources” also means potable water packaged in commercially marketable containers, all starches, sugars, vegetable and animal or marine fats and oils, seed, cotton, hemp, and flax fiber, but does not mean any such material after it loses its identity as an agricultural commodity or agricultural product.
(f)  “Food resource facilities” means plants, machinery, vehicles (including on farm), and other facilities required for the production, processing, distribution, and storage (including cold storage) of food resources, and for the domestic distribution of farm equipment and fertilizer…”
This unconstitutional EO is particularly disturbing in that it clearly states that the government has control over anything that is “capable of being ingested by either human beings or animals…”  If you thought that you and Fido were going to get through coming food crisis by storing and consuming dog food, think again.
How will farmers maintain the nation’s food supply when all fertilizer, their farm equipment and all of their vehicles are under the control of this sociopathic  President or the next power-hungry President?

The Wide-Ranging Food Control Policies of EO 13603

The term “all food storage facilities” includes your refrigerator, your pantry and even the very food in your cabinets as well as what is on your kitchen table. In short, anywhere you keep food is now under the control of the government and can be seized and redistributed. Those who are storing food, you better find a way to hide at least a portion of your stockpile.
Have you recently been scratching your head in bewilderment as you watch on the news as the Amish have had their farms raided, raw milk producers have been jailed and the kids running lemonade stands have been shut down and ticketed? Now you know why these abuses are being perpetrated by the government in that it represents a mere conditioning process designed to get all U.S. citizens used to the idea that the government owns all food and food production. Welcome to the Hunger Games, American style
The most clever aspect of this EO is that no Hegelian Dialectic (i.e., false flag event) is needed as a pretense to seize food and imperil survivability. Section 201(b) of the Obama EO clearly states that this EO is enforceable under both emergency and non-emergency conditions.”
Even Ray Charles could see that Obama is setting the table to take his place among Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, Castro and Mao as another despot in the long line of tyrannical leaders who would grant themselves the authority to subjugate the masses by using food as a weapon. Americans desperately need to look at history in order to understand what happens every time the people of a government allows the government to control its food supplies and farms. It was with great forethought that the second part of the title of this article reads “…systematic population reduction.”


Food deprivation and gun confiscation go hand in hand as it relates to the subjugation of the American people. This is why the Russians troops are on American soil. This is why they are training with the Department of Homeland Security. And people which permits its government to seize its guns and its food supplies is courting genocide.
In hindsight, I have often wondered how prophetic was Obama’s campaign speech when he promised tofundamentally transform America? This was actually one campaign promise that Obama is trying to keep. NSSM 200 has come full circle, but in this case, it is specifically aimed at the American people.  History show us that Socialists, Communists, Islamists and Marxists, use food and the production of food as a weapon against their own people in order to solidify power and control. Hitler himself said that using food as a weapon was “a beautiful instrument . . . for maneuvering and disciplining the masses.”
Through the National Defense Preparedness Act, Obama is following in the footsteps of Hitler and Stalin. And when consider the role that the domestically trained martial law Russian troops are going to play, we should all be worried, very worried.

Fukushima #4 Fuel Removal a Catastrophic Threat to N. America

What You Need To Know......

Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) has announced they will soon begin attempting removal of more than 1200 spent nuclear fuel assemblies from a cooling pool more than 100 feet above ground at the severely damaged Fukushima #4 reactor. As previously reported by AlertsUSA Threat Journal on multiple occasions, scientists worldwide have warned for well over two years of the global dangers and implications of this process.

In the case of Fukushima Unit #4, the racks holding the fuel assemblies weredamaged and deformed during the earthquake and explosion in March of 2011. The building is shattered, structurally unsound and highly vulnerable. In addition, spent nuclear fuel cannot be simply lifted into the air by a crane. It must be lifted and transferred at all times in water and heavily shielded structures.

During the removal process, if the fuel assemblies touch, are dropped or break open there is potential for uncontrolled nuclear reactions and explosions to occur.

According to Robert Alvarez, former Senior Policy Adviser to the Secretary of Energy, Deputy Assistant Secretary for National Security and one of the nation's leading experts on spent fuel pools, "There is more than 37 million curies of long lived radioactivity stored up in the spent fuel just within this single pool. If another severe earthquake were to strike causing the pool to drain, or some other event such as an explosion, it could result in a catastrophic radiological fire releasing nearly 10 times the amount of Cs-137 [into the Earths atmosphere] as was released by the Chernobyl accident.

And that is just one of approximately 200 different types of radioactive isotopes that could potentially be released.

According to Gregory Jaczko, former Chairman of U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the upcoming attempt to remove Fukushima Unit 4 spent fuel is"unprecedented, the pool has significant structural damage and that the overall effort is very risky."

According to Arnie Gunderson, Sr. Engineer at Fairewinds Energy and a former nuclear industry executive with more than 40 years experience, "TEPCO has already admitted that the boron shields in the fuel racks separating the fuel bundles have deteriorated. These shields absorb neutrons and keep the the fuel cells subcritical."

According to Yale University Professor Emeritus Charles Perrow, a frequent author for the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, "This has me scared." In the event of an explosion, "Tokyo would have to be evacuated because of cesium and other poisons that are there will spread very rapidly. Even if the wind is blowing the other way it's going to be monumental."

According to Shunichi Tanaka, Japan's Nuclear Regulatory Chairman, "I am much more worried about this than contaminated water.”

According to Mycle Schneider, an energy consultant and adviser to members of the European Parliament and the Int'l Atomic Energy Agency, "A massive spent fuel fire would likely dwarf the current dimensions of the catastrophe and could exceed the radioactivity releases of Chernobyl dozens of times."

His and other's concerns are not limited to Japan. An accident in this fuel removal process will have dramatic public health ramifications for the United States and Canada many times worse than the original Fukushima explosions and meltdowns.

It must be understood that the U.S. is directly downwind. In a worse case scenario you will have only a few days to make any type of preparedness moves to protect yourself and family as prevailing winds and weather patterns carry airborne contaminants to the East for rainout / fallout across N. America.

And here is the kicker: The fuel removal process is expected to take many months, if not longer. But it has to be done. Leaving the spent fuel in the damaged pool is not an option.

Readers need to give serious to consideration to the warnings in this story. As repeatedly referenced in the lead up to this fuel removal effort, we strongly urge you to download the 3 free nuclear emergency preparedness guides below and actually read them. They are written for you by some of this nation's most skilled and knowledgeable in the area of radiation safety and preparedness.

As we reported just a few weeks back, even the federal government is making plans for such a disaster with the recent emergency purchase of tens of millions of dollars in medications to help combat radiation sickness. While they are not publicizing the move, this is your cue. You don't want to be caught looking at your feet. Judging from the near non-existent mainstream news coverage here in the U.S., the time for you to prepare is now.

Paul Craig Roberts Fed Trapped by Money Printing

President Putin ends Russia and NATO Anti-Ballistic Missile cooperation

In another powerful and significant move for peace, the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin has cancelled a presidential order which in 2011, had set up an interdepartmental working group under the authority of the Russian Presidential Administration designed to develop ways to establish cooperation with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in the sphere of 'missile defense'.

Sigh of relief
Many experts and NATO watchers familiar with the decree and the attempts by the Russian Federation to develop an equal partnership relationship with NATO on the basis of mutual respect and transparency may now breathe a collective sigh of relief thatPresident Putin has finally run out of patience with the alliance.

The wisdom of the president can not be questioned after what many have been saying for years and dozens of failed attempts to develop a partnership with the alliance. These “failures” have been many fold and compounded by NATO own actions and have included NATO insistence on Like the proverbial Russian bear, President Putin has been slow to be provoked into action but once that action has been decided it is resolute.

Empty rhetoric
It was almost obvious from the outset that despite all of its rhetoric to the contrary, rhetoric that has proven time and time again to be as empty as the minds of those espousing it, that NATO had no intention of allowing the Russian Federation into its “fold” as an equal partner.

This total inability by NATO to adjust and modernize its strategic mission taking into account the contemporary realities of Russia as a leading European power interested in peace, rule of law and mutually beneficial cooperation, may be due to its inherent nature of being an organization that was designed, and whose only purpose was, to contain the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, and/or that NATO has become a wholly owned global proxy for the attempted advancement of short-sighted, myopic US geopolitical military domination and American hegemony by force.

Failure of cooperation
Since the chaotic days at the end of the cold war the newly formed and struggling Russian Federation, rising from the ashes of the shattered and broken greatest power in the history of mankind, vainly attempted to find a way to cooperate, and at times it seemed to appease, its former Warsaw Pact adversary, one which should have been disbanded at the moment of the demise of the Soviet bloc. But unfortunately the lust for hegemony and global military domination and the new modus operandi of “advancement of interests by force” did not allow the West to dismantle their war and death machine.

This first occurred in Yugoslavia and Serbia, when NATO promised Russia to allow Russian peacekeepers, the when the time came for Russian boots on the ground quickly did an about face.

This slap in the face to Russia and Russian interests and allies then occurred many times again, as NATO was used to launch illegal wars of aggression and military adventures against country after country all over the world.

Then with what has been revealed to be the false “War on Terror” paradigm, when Russia on countless occasions attempted to cooperate express its will, Russia was spurned time and time again.

Lastly, we have seen that despite the new nature of Russia, as a growing democratic country, promoting peace and cooperation, NATO continued expanding to the east and in fact expanding globally and even into space, while at the same time surrounding Russia with missiles and military weapons, under the pretense of the bogey man of an attack from the equally demonized Islamic Republic of Iran.

Seeking to become an equal mutual partner in their Missile Shield, Russia attempted time and time again to work with NATO. However NATO locked out all attempts by Russia to participate and gain assurance that the missiles were not being placed to neutralize Russia itself.

Russia repeatedly asked for a written guarantee, in light of the track record by the West of proving their spoken guarantees mean nothing, something proven in Serbia and Kosovo, but one was never provided, let alone considered.

Russia attempted to introduce what was called the Sectoral Approach, a wise and carefully planned as well as effective “shield” strategy to protect both Europe and Russia itself, but was spurned at every turn.

Missile defense a Trojan horse for a first strike
It has been proven and is now part of the public record that the interceptor missiles and missile shield elements of the US and its NATO allies, the ones that have been surreptitiously placed to surround Russia, can be turned into first strike offensive weapons with almost the literal flick of a switch. These so-called “defensive” missiles are also largely capable of delivering nuclear payloads directly into the heart of Russia.

This can be further underlined by witnesses to US and NATO Missile Defense Shield tests and scientists knowledgeable in radar and the elements that make up the shield. As a “shield”, the US/NATO missile system is almost completely ineffective allowing more than 40% of missiles to pass unstopped and almost 100% ineffective against small missiles and shorter range weapons. It is a given that the designers of the system are aware of this. So why install the system? For a totally devastating and unanswerable first strike.

The victory for President Putin, the Russian Federation and peace in Syria has now proven beyond any shadow of a doubt that President Putin is a leader who truly honors and believes in peace, rule of law and transparency. Unlike the Nobel Peace Prize winning Obama, who attempts to continue policies of aggressive war, advancement of interests by force and personally approved extra-judicial execution by drone. PresidentPutin has said he does not care about the Noble Peace Prize and in this he is sincere. He cares about peace.

New arms race
NATO’s relentless worldwide and eastward expansion have forced countries to build weapons to defend themselves, a right any sovereign nation has against the threat of an aggressor and has caused the world to enter a global arms race the likes of which make the Cold War seem like a training exercise.

Russia, China, Venezuela and North Korea in particular, have been forced to spend billions on defense and their militaries to counter the threat of NATO. And with the constant bellicose elements North Korea and other countries the US does not favor, have been forced to seek a nuclear deterrence. This has led to a much more dangerous world but has proven to be necessary after what the world witnessed was done to Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya by the US and its NATO allies.

US/NATO continue to attempt to advance their interests by force and to militarize once neutral and peaceful countries and regions, with the case of Scandinavian countries and even the Arctic. The attempted move into the Arctic by the US/NATO is clearly a strategy to obtain resources and territory by force. Something as illegal as its aggressive wars and the Bush Doctrine of preventive wars.

Russia’s new position in the world
Two recent events, one the refusal by President Putin to be swayed by the threat ofterrorist acts by Saudi Prince Bandar with the “full backing of the United States, and two, the prevention of another aggressive attack on a sovereign nation by US/NATO on Syria, have once again moved the world into the realm of being a healthy multi-polar place and have effectively put an end to US plans for “Global American Hegemony”, a fact admitted even by grand geopolitical chess architect Zbignew Brzhinky.

Warnings issued
Warning have been issued to Russia from many corners since the beginning of NATO’s eastward expansion. This includes the warnings that the the US/NATO shield can be quickly and seamlessly converted into deadly first strike architecture. So why would Russia continue in attempting to cooperate with a plan to surround itself with NATO missiles? The answers to that may be Machiavellian or they may be as simple as the fact that Russia was attempting to cooperate with the West until the very end, in a peaceful manner.

End of an era
With the very quiet repealing of the presidential order, dated April 25, 2012 officially establishing cooperation with NATO and titled: "On the Repeal of the Russian President's Order 'On the Special Representative of the Russian President for Missile Defense Interaction with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO)'", President Vladimir Putin has officially put an end to the era where Russia attempted to appease and cooperate with its former foe NATO and has quietly, once again quietly asserted Russia’s own sovereignty and shown that Russia will stand on the side of peace, not only in word but by quiet dignified deed.

Russia Nuke Attack Drill As China Selects U.S. Targets

Global Power: Moscow launches four ICBMs in a large-scale nuclear drill as Chinese state media, brandishing detailed maps, show how Beijing's nuclear submarines can attack U.S. cities. We press "reset," they press "launch."

In March 2009, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton presented Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov with a red "reset button" to symbolize improved ties. The era of confrontation when American presidents demanded the tearing down of walls was over. From now on, we would make nice.

Fast-forward to 2012, when President Obama met with Dmitry Medvedev, Russia's then-president and now prime minister, at the Nuclear Security Summit in Seoul, South Korea.

That was when Obama assured Medvedev he'd have more leeway after his re-election to weaken missile defense. This would help him achieve his dream of U.S. disarmament and bring about, as he expressed in Prague in 2009, "a world without nuclear weapons."

Apparently the Russians and the Chinese do not share that dream. On Wednesday, Russian strategic forces carried out a large-scale surprise military drill that included the test launch of two land-based intercontinental ballistic missiles and two submarine-launched ballistic missiles.

So while Russia expands and tests its offensive and defensive missile capabilities, President Obama lets our missile capabilities wither and caves to Russian demands to halt previously planned expansion.

To placate Moscow, Obama has already betrayed our allies in Poland and the Czech Republic by abandoning plans to deploy ground-based interceptors and missile defense in those countries.

Our Chinese friends have also noticed that the famous "reset" button has been replaced with one marked "easy." China's military carried out on July 24 a third test of a long-range DF-31A road-mobile ballistic missile capable of hitting the U.S. with nuclear warheads.

According to a recently published report by the Air Force National Air and Space Intelligence Center, "China has the most active and diverse ballistic missile development program in the world."

Last Monday, Chinese state-run media — including China Central TV, the People's Daily, the Global Times, the PLA Daily, the China Youth Daily and the Guangmin Daily — ran identical, top-headlined reports boasting of the "awesomeness" of the People's Liberation Army navy's strategic submarine force.

It is indeed formidable. China's sub fleet is reportedly the world's second-largest, with about 70 vessels. About 10 are nuclear-powered, and four or more of those are nuclear ballistic submarines.

In 2010, the Type 094 Jin class entered the service. It is capable of launching 12 to 16 JL-2 missiles with a range of about 8,700 miles, covering much of the continental U.S. with single or multiple independently targetable re-entry vehicle warheads.

What was chilling about the reports is that they included photos and graphics detailing, among other things, damage projections for Seattle and Los Angeles after being hit by Chinese nuclear warheads and the deadly radiation that would spread all the way to Chicago.

"The 12 JL-2 nuclear warheads carried by one single Type 094 SSBN can kill and wound 5 million to 12 million Americans," the Global Times reported.

"If we launch our DF 31A ICBMs over the North Pole," the paper added, "we can easily destroy a whole list of metropolises on the East Coast and the New England region of the U.S., including Annapolis, Philadelphia, New York, Boston, Portland, Baltimore and Norfolk, whose population accounts for about one-eighth of America's total residents."

Clearly the Russians and the Chinese are not dreaming of a world without nuclear weapons, just of one without American resistance to their ambitious plans.
