Nuclear Paranoia: Russia’s new weapons of mass destruction and the short fuse to doomsday – Part 6

Putin Nuclear Arsenal
August 2016MOSCOW – Russia has developed a whole new generation of defensive systems and nuclear weapons that could obliterate the U.S., as part of its ‘blitzkrieg’ crash so-called ‘modernization’ program. The weapons have been talked about very little in the media here in the U.S., but most U.S. generals will tell you privately they are both alarmed and concerned about the new existential threats these weapon systems pose to the U.S.

TOPOL M
The missile can be operational in as little as one minute – making it virtually impossible for enemies to destroy the missile on the ground before it can be successfully launched. The TOPOL-M missile was designed to penetrate an American anti-ballistic missile shield by leveraging high-speed, a relatively small infrared signature during its boost phase, advanced decoys (as many as ten carried on a single missile), maneuvering mid-course capability, and maneuvering independently targeted reentry vehicles, of which it can carry up to six, although they are said to carry just one operationally.

The missile’s high speed shortens the time anyone can react to it, and every second matters when it comes to ballistic missile defense. The rocket motors were designed for a short, very powerful boost stage so that American space-based infrared detection satellites (SBIRS, DSP) have less time to detect and track it. Its decoys make it hard for radar to adequately track the correct target, and its countermeasures are said to have been upgraded to fool infrared tracking systems, which are use for mid-course interception. The missile and reentry vehicles’ ability to dynamically maneuver outside of their ballistic track makes producing an effective kill solution, or even predicting the TOPOL-M’s target, problematic. All these features come together to make a missile that is probably outside of America’s missile defense capabilities today, and the sheer number of them that exists makes the idea of defending against anything but a limited barrage totally invalid.

Doomsday

Russia is targeting every major U.S. city with nukes: Every single city in America is targeted by the Russians right now. “Twelve H-bombs are targeted on New York City alone. Every city in America is targeted with at least one nuclear missile. And Russian cities are targeted the same way by America.  And all this insanity is at the mercy of human fallibility too.”
And fighting with Russia is crazy.  Continuing to stock Europe with nuclear weapons pointed at Russia is like waving a red flag at a bull. It would be as if Russia was arming Canada with nuclear missiles aimed straight at Washington DC.  Not cool at all. “The Russians will fight to the last person to defend themselves, just like they did against Hitler.  –Counter Punch
Americans would have mere minutes to react to a nuclear attack: Americans would have about 21 minutes to seek an underground fallout shelter to survive a bout of incoming land-based Russian nuclear ICBMs, and could have as little as 5 to 6 minutes if those missiles were launched from Russian stealth submarines parked off the U.S. East or West Coasts.
Activists, however, are now urging the Obama administration to “de-alert” the nation’s nuclear arsenal. Instead of launching before enemy warheads have reached their targets, they say the U.S. should disable its missiles so they can be fired off only after the country has first absorbed a blow. General James Cartwright, who headed U.S. Strategic Command, said in 2012 (after he retired) that our weapons should be secured so that it would take 24 to 72 hours to launch them. Some want even longer waiting periods.  –National Interest, August 22, 2016

Putin Hitler

Russia Calls for all Russians to return to Motherland – Another warning sign? 
Putin has been quoted as saying that the collapse of the USSR was the geopolitical tragedy of the century. In this clip, he explains that he meant it not in the sense of an ‘Empire lost’, but that it was truly a humanitarian tragedy for the people of the Soviet Union. The collapse of the USSR created one of the largest diasporas that exist in the world today – 1 out of every 4 ethnic Russians do not live in Russia itself. Some analysts have even suggested that the numbers of those, who died during the 1990s and early 2000s due to political and social upheaval, as well as military conflict, rivals those lost in Stalin’s 1930s. The amount of those who fled Russia within those decades is estimated to be around 30 million worldwide. Of course, as people settle in new places, they marry into their hosting nations and have children who no longer speak the language. It may just be that it will never be possible to bring back the majority of those who fled, but if anything will – it is Russia’s continued rise and stability, in an economic sense.

    This was the type of missile described by David Wilkerson in his vision of a strike on the country.

      Crazy. And we have our U.S. presidents and the Washington politicians to thank for degrading the security of this country. Mikhail Gorbachev and Boris Yeltsin used the collapse of the Soviet Union to seek millions in aid from the U.S. to “dismantle and destroy” part of its nuclear arsenal. Only to later find out that most of the U.S. money was diverted to rebuilding Russia’s nuclear program and subsidizing its underground bunker complex. Perestroika was a political movement for reformation within the Communist Party of the Soviet Union during the 1980s but the name “perestroika” in Russian really means “rebuilding.” All this while Vladimir Putin was involved with the KGB, and was actually even promoted by then president, Boris Yeltsin. We can now see the results of Russia’s rebuilding and achievements that the U.S. help bankroll.

      Remember, Russia achieve nuclear military preeminence over the U.S. under European sanctions, a currency war, frozen assets, and a depressed oil market. How you ask yourself was this even possible? Even with the huge increase in military spending, and with crippling EU and US economic sanctions, Russia’s budget deficit to GDP was only 4% this year, compared with the U.S. which is around 77%. So, we were outfoxed and we overspent.

      The U.S. gave Russia $400 million dollars as early as 2012 under Obama: http://us-foreign-aid.insidegov.com/q/145/1590/How-much-money-does-the-U-S-give-to-Russia. http://us-foreign-aid.insidegov.com/q/145/1590/How-much-money-does-the-U-S-give-to-Russia

      Insanity: The U.S. gives billions in foreign aid and then begs to borrow it back again

      This is what happens when an uninformed American electorate votes on passions rather than on the important substantive issues that could seal the fate of a country. From the Bushes to Obama, America has had some of the worst leaders in history.

    Americans do not know where a fall out shelter is or if there were, they are being used as a place to store unused stuff. And I would not go; Considering the varmint that would show up.

    The last time we had a practice drill fro civil defense?

    Also, during the cold war, 30 minutes was the expected norm once the launch was confirmed and the missiles was picked up by the DEW System. That is why SAC always kept a protionof its force airborne and a ready alert force to have every plane off the ground in 15 minutes.
