More Evidence that Washington Is Criminally Insane

America’s Top Scientists Confirm: U.S. Goal Now Is to Conquer Russia

Eric Zuesse

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.

North Korea says CIA sent lumberjack to assassinate Kim Jong-un with radioactive material at Day of the Sun parade

North Korea says CIA sent lumberjack to assassinate Kim Jong-un with radioactive material at Day of the Sun parade

North Korea has accused the CIA and South Korea of trying to assassinate Kim Jong-Un with a biochemical weapon.

The secretive country made the astonishing claim today as tensions continue to increase between the state and America.

Credits: AFP© Provided by Trinity Mirror Shared Services Limited Credits: AFP In a statement, the North’s Ministry of State Security said “the last-ditch effort” of U.S. “imperialists” and the South had gone “beyond the limits”.

It also said such a “pipe-dream” could never succeed.

The country claimed the US’s Central Intelligence Agency and South Korea’s Intelligence Services (IS) “hatched a vicious plot” against its “supreme leadership”.

It alleged the organisations infiltrated a “hideous terrorists’ group” into North Korea “to commit state-sponsored terrorism” by use of “bio-chemical substance”.

The alleged assassination plot was due to be carried out during Day of the Sun celebrations in Pyongyang in April, according to the state and media reports.

Credits: Rex Features© Provided by Trinity Mirror Shared Services Limited Credits: Rex Features It involved “biochemical substances” – such as radioactive substances or nano poisonous substances – although it is unclear exactly which ones.

It also involved a North Korean lumberjack-turned-“assassin”, known only by his surname, “Kim”, according to the North’s KCNA news agency.

The worker was allegedly “corrupted” by the CIA and IS and transformed into “a terrorist full of repugnance and revenge against the supreme leadership of the DPRK.”

According to the KCNA, the Ministry of State Security statement said: “The Central Intelligence Agency of the U.S. and the Intelligence Service of south Korea, hotbed of evils in the world, hatched a vicious plot to hurt the supreme leadership of the DPRK [Democratic People’s Republic of Korea] and those acts have been put into the extremely serious phase of implementation after crossing the threshold of the DPRK.

“A hideous terrorists’ group, which the CIA and the IS infiltrated into the DPRK on the basis of covert and meticulous preparations to commit state-sponsored terrorism against the supreme leadership of the DPRK by use of bio-chemical substance, has been recently detected.”

The U.S. Embassy in Seoul and South Korea’s Intelligence Service were not immediately available for comment.

The U.S. military has said CIA director Mike Pompeo visited South Korea this week and met the IS chief for discussions.

KCNA claimed the two intelligence services “ideologically corrupted” and bribed the North Korean lumberjack surnamed “Kim”.

“They hatched a plot of letting human scum Kim commit bomb terrorism targeting the supreme leadership during events at the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun and at military parade and public procession after his return home,” KCNA reported.

“They told him that assassination by use of biochemical substances including radioactive substance and nano poisonous substance is the best method that does not require access to the target, their lethal results will appear after six or twelve months…

“Then they handed him over $20,000 on two occasions and a satellite transmitter-receiver and let him get versed in it.”

North Korea conducted an annual military parade, featuring a display of missiles and overseen by top leader Kim Jong-un and his right-hand men on April 15 and then a large, live-fire artillery drill 10 days later.

KCNA, which often carries shrill, bellicose threats against the United States, gave lengthy details about the alleged plot but said it could never be accomplished.

“Criminals going hell-bent to realize such a pipe dream cannot survive on this land even a moment,” it said.

The allegations come after Kim said he was considering a plan to strike South Korea as he visited military bases near the border yesterday.

He also called for combat readiness.

Kim visited military units on Jangjae and Mu islets located near South Korea’s front-line Yeongpyeong Island – less than 10 miles from North Korea.

The units are believed to be the location of multiple rocket launchers and artillery pieces and is within sight of South Korea.

Kim “acquainted and examined the plan for fire strike of the newly organized forces at the objects of the enemy”, South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency reported.

It added that the North Korean leader was considering a plan to strike South Korea.

Tension on the Korean peninsula has been high for weeks, driven by concern that North Korea might conduct its sixth nuclear test or test-launch another ballistic missile in defiance of U.N. Security Council resolutions.

Reclusive North Korea warned this week that U.S. hostility had brought the region to the brink of nuclear war.

During his visit yesterday, Kim went to the units on a small military vessel, the South Korean military believe.

North Korea shelled Yeongpyeong Island in November 2010, leaving four people dead, the agency said.

The Yonhap News Agency said a South Korean Marine Corps commander inspected troops near the Western maritime border on Thursday.

Any provocations by North Korea, he said, will be retaliated against.

One of the sources for the reports of the Kim inspection was a North Korean newspaper, Rodong Sinmun.

The paper featured pictures of the visits and reported he received reports on the movements of the “South Korean puppet army”.

“He said that the KPA elite artillery group defending the southwestern front should keep highly alert to break the backbone of the enemy once ordered,” the newspaper reported.

Kim also tasted water in a newly-built room for turning sea water into fresh water.

“He was greatly satisfied with the combat readiness and the soldiers’ living of the two defence detachments, he said, adding he confirmed that all the combat positions are fully ready for combat and to go into action,” the newspaper reported.

On Wednesday, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Washington was working on more sanctions against North Korea if it takes steps that merit a new response.

He also warned other countries their firms could face so-called secondary sanctions for doing illicit business with Pyongyang.

Tillerson said the Trump administration had been “leaning hard into China … to test their willingness to use their influence, their engagement with the regime”.

China Issues Unprecedented Warning To Citizens In North Korea: Return Home

China Issues Unprecedented Warning To Citizens In North Korea: Return Home

Tyler Durden's picture

In an unprecedented move, the Chinese Embassy in North Korea has advised Korean-Chinese residents to return home amid concern that the North’s military provocations may trigger a U.S. attack on the North.

The Korea Times reports that the embassy began sending the message on Apr. 20, five days before the North celebrated the 85th anniversary of the Korean People’s Army with a show of military power, according to Radio Free Asia (a U.S.-based station specializes in North Korea).

The station cited a Korean-Chinese living in the North’s capital, who said he left for China late last month after the embassy contacted him. He said he has been visiting China every two to three months but, after being told he should “stay in China for a while,” left North Korea a month early.

“The embassy has never given such a warning. I was worried and left the country in a hurry,” said the man, whose name was withheld.

But he said that most Korean-Chinese residents in Pyongyang were ignoring the message.

Russia ‘can launch tsunami against US with nuclear bombs buried in ocean’

By Telegraph Reporters

Russia ‘can launch tsunami against US with nuclear bombs buried in ocean’

A retired Russian colonel has made outlandish claims that Moscow has planted nuclear missiles off the east coast of America that could trigger a tsunami if detonated.

The far-fetched plans were outlined by Viktor Baranetz, who claimed it was a response to the US building up its military along Russia’s borders.

“The Americans are deploying their tanks, airplanes and special forces battalions along the Russian border,” Mr Baranetz said in an interview with Russian paper Komsomolskaya Pravda .

“And we are quietly ‘seeding’ the US shoreline with nuclear ‘mole’ missiles.  They dig themselves in and “sleep” until they are given the command…”

Any such tsunami would destroy cities such as New York and Miami.

The former official said Russia had to come up with an effective way to defend itself, while operating with a much smaller military budget than America.

“The US is the permanent ‘world champion’ in the size of its military budget – almost $600 billion (£500 million), which is 10 times more than Russia’s,” he explained.

“Russia will not compete with the US in defence expenditure. We are in a different weight class,” he said.

“For us, the main question is how to ensure Russia’s defence at a lower cost.

“I am sure that we have already found asymmetrical responses. I don’t see a big problem here.”

A Russian government spokesman dismissed Mr Baranetz’s claims. Calling them “strange”, he said the report should “not be taken seriously”, the Daily Mail reported.

 

Actually, I think this should be taken very seriously. We know that tsunami bombs have been tested since the WW2 years, and there is circumstantial evidence of testing and use of such weapons in recent years.

“Top-secret wartime experiments were conducted off the coast of Auckland to perfect a tidal wave bomb, declassified files reveal.

An Auckland University professor seconded to the Army set off a series of underwater explosions triggering mini-tidal waves at Whangaparaoa in 1944 and 1945.

Professor Thomas Leech’s work was considered so significant that United States defence chiefs said that if the project had been completed before the end of the war it could have played a role as effective as that of the atom bomb.

Details of the tsunami bomb, known as Project Seal, are contained in 53-year-old documents released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

Papers stamped “top secret” show the US and British military were eager for Seal to be developed in the post-war years too. They even considered sending Professor Leech to Bikini Atoll to view the US nuclear tests and see if they had any application to his work.”

I do not think we should take “tsunami Bomb” claims lightly.

Nice Cup Of Tea And A Civil Chat, Kim?

…Well, it beats lobbing bombs at each other from afar doesn’t it?

President Donald Trump said he would meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un amid heightened tensions over his country’s nuclear weapons program if the circumstances were right.

“If it would be appropriate for me to meet with him, I would absolutely, I would be honored to do it,” Trump said Monday in an Oval Office interview with Bloomberg News. “If it’s under the, again, under the right circumstances. But I would do that.”

The US has no diplomatic relations with North Korea, and as recently as last week, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said at the United Nations that the US would negotiate with Kim’s regime only if it made credible steps toward giving up its nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles.

“Most political people would never say that,” Trump said of his willingness to meet with the reclusive Kim, “but I’m telling you under the right circumstances I would meet with him. We have breaking news.”

North Korea has become the most urgent national security threat and foreign policy issue facing Trump as his first 100 days in office passed. Kim’s regime has continued development of its nuclear and intercontinental ballistic missile program in defiance of international condemnation and sanctions. Military analysts have said North Korea is on course to develop a nuclear-tipped ballistic missile that could reach the U.S. mainland as soon as 2020, during Trump’s term in office.

Kim has never met with a foreign leader since taking charge after his father’s death in 2011 and hasn’t left his isolated country.

Over more than two decades, six-nation talks, direct bilateral negotiations, food aid and UN sanctions have all failed to deter the Kim dynasty’s quest for a nuclear arsenal. That has left the Trump administration relying increasingly on China, North Korea’s neighbor and top trading partner, to exert pressure on the regime.

Tensions have escalated since Trump vowed in January that he wouldn’t let North Korea develop a nuclear weapon capable of reaching the U.S., and North Korea has labeled American military moves in the region as acts of “intimidation and blackmail.” North Korea has continued to test missiles this year after carrying out its fourth and fifth nuclear tests in a decade last year.

While dispatching an aircraft carrier group and a submarine to the region, the Trump administration has emphasized the use of economic sanctions and diplomacy to persuade North Korea to curtail its nuclear program.

Trump has said he’s encouraged by Chinese President Xi Jinping’s efforts to defuse the situation. Trump and Xi met last month at the U.S. president’s private club in Florida and have talked several times since.

Then-Secretary of State Madeleine Albright was the last top U.S. official to meet with a North Korean leader. She discussed the country’s nuclear program with Kim’s father, Kim Jong Il, in 2000. At the time, she was the most senior official to visit the Stalinist state in the 50 years since the Korean War.

EMP Attacks and Solar Flares: It May Not Happen, But Preparedness Never Hurt.

 

With the North Korea situation, Operation Gotham, recent power outages and increased solar activity all on everyone’s mind right now, it doesn’t hurt to be prepared for the grid going down,even temporarily. This is not a cause for panic, just commonsense preparedness.

The Illusioned, By G Squared

The MSM Comedy Hour never ends. Murdoch just advised that Fox News is doing great. While down at CNN they ran footage of Chinese soldiers, in Chinese uniforms, with Chinese weapons, boarding a Chinese helicopter, and said they were American Marines. They have Fact Checkers as well as armies of editors. But sometimes the comedy and fiction writers just seem to take hold.

Another Junk Law Bench Warmer has emerged. Judge William Orrick III has determined that Trump cannot block federal funding to cities which refuse to obey federal laws concerning the protection of illegal immigrants; The Sanctuary City inanity. (Ed’s note, see Rappoport: https://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2017/04/25/breaking-obama-judge-blocks-fed-action-against-sanctuary-cities-he-raised-money-for-obama/ )

This character was a money chaser (bundler: avoiding contribution laws) for Obama. A non entity Junk Law enthusiast. He worked to block Alabama passing state legislation to control illegal immigrants. He did the same in Arizona, concerning SB1070, to control illegals.

Image result for Judge William Orrick III sanctuary cities

He was such a genius at his career or bundling for Obama, that Obama popped him up to be a bench warmer. The notorious little fellow even promising that he would exclude himself from decisions concerning illegal immigrants. But he lied. Who would believe that he would do such a thing?

Texas is currently passing state legislation to control illegal immigrants. The legislation correctly includes the gaoling of local sheriffs who refuse to enforce federal immigration laws.

Illegal Immigration is a major Socio-Economic issue. It is not some social engineering moralised play toy. You either get it, or you get out. Employment is taken from Americans; causing economic damage. They commit crime and use the medical and legal systems, causing economic damage. The ancillary damage is estimated at $90 billion for fiscal 2017.

Nancy Pelosi is House Minority Leader; a Democrat. Her history is littered with absurdities and delusions. To suggest she has no idea; is being overly kind. Obviously she’s well qualified to be a high end Democrat.

She appeared on a TV wafflefest supporting illegal immigration. A clueless jockey of the first order. With her were two ranchers. They advised that they had to fence and patrol their own properties to prevent what was happening; including the movement of violent drug gangs. One advised that over a 30 year period, over half a million captures and returns had been conducted. But Pelosi knew better.

House Majority Leader, Paul Ryan, seriously damaged the passage of The Obamacare Repeal Bill. Instead of a one sentence repeal with the new legislation attached; he puts forward a 2,000 page repeal. Everthing focussed on that document, without the new legislation gaining any traction. He also naively assumed votes in a chamber controlled by a GOP majority without confirming.

As a consequence of the latter; The Congressional Human Rights Caucus (the same crew who sucked in the Nayirah al Sabah, Lauri Fitz Pegado, Hill and Knowlton, Kuwaiti Humidicrib Lie in 1990) decides it will package its 30 lower house votes to block the repeal. Ryan has to pull the vote.

The current position; which should never have occurred; and will be difficult to remove in the future; involves the passage of the repeal, together with the new legislation; but with the addition that; members of Congress and their staff will be excluded and treated separately as a privileged sector.

The full import of which is difficult to explain to the community who sought a better system. The community will be carrying Congressional members, their staff and their families. Those on high goverment salaries and benefits will be carried by those at the other end of that spectrum.

The USN has just come out posturing that they are being threatened by Iranian patrol boats, when The USN wonders into Iranian territorial coastal waters in The Persian Gulf.

In reality it is virtually a daily event, and is The USN charging down on small Iranian patrol boats. The USN stopped the practice in The South China Sea, when The Chinese Navy sent out tankers to stand fast amidships infront of USN charge downs. The USN only needed to ram one.

The USS Mahan, guided missile destroyer was threatened when the Iranian patrol boat came within 1,000 meters. So The Mehan fired a flare at it, and it moved away. That certainly would have terrified anyone. Even any terrorists on that patrol boart.

On 3/7/1988; The USS Vincennes under the command of William C. Rogers III in The Persian Gulf; moved close into Iranian coastal waters; in what was later described as; ‘Reckless and aggressive behaviour’. He ordering the firing of an SM-2MR Surface to Air missile, shooting down Iranian Air Flight 655, murdering 290 civilians.

Image result for 3/7/1988; The USS Vincennes under the command of William C. Rogers III in The Persian Gulf;

The civilian flight had taken off from Mehraban International Airport, Tehran, on a sceduled flight to Dubai. It was in Iranian airspace, and would not pass any disputed airspace.

Following which many deceptions were put forward by America and the propagandised MSM. One was that; The Vincennes had launched a helicopter, it had accidentally wandered into Iranian airspace. Rogers thought that an F-14A was taking off to engage the helicopter, so he had it shot down.

Iran had taken delivery directly from Gruman of F14As some 18 years prior. They were armed with unguided bombs and unguided missiles. And would not have been sent to engage or warn. Rogers would have been aware of all this.

Then it was put that The Vincennes tried to make radio contact with the aircraft without success. IA-655 was on continuous signal civilian IFF Mode III. Not military IFF Mode II. In addition; The Vincennes would be normally monitoring all local area frequencies. The chatter between IA-655 and ground control would have been monitored. Radar would have further confirmed the position.

All of which was further confirmed by the ICAO report that followed.

MSM had run with strong ethnocentric bias, fed by the Reagan-GHWB administration.

Rogers was moved to a desk job st Port Loma and retired into hiding in August 1991.

On 10/3/1989, Rogers’ wife Sharon stopped at a traffic light in San Diego. The car was hit by a small rocket and exploded into flames. The local police and FBI describing the device as a pipe bomb. She was not injured. No one was fitted for the event. Which signals another issue.

The American government in traditional form; after a hearing brought in The ICJ, offered an ex-gratia payment to the families of the people murdered; without any liability, explanation, or apology. It was a total of $61.8 million in total. Not a big print run for Treasury.

The intel files read an interesting parallel with MH-17. Except for the SVR-GRU hack concerning the latter. Neither of which I can render. There is also a connection with Lockerbie PA-103 (21/12/1988), and MH-370. Libya did not down PA-103.
