Russian Diplomat: "Yes, Russia Is Preparing For War, I Can Confirm It"
29 October, 2018
A week after Russian president Vladimir Putin doubled-down on a warning to Russia's geopolitical foes first made earlier this year by declaring that Russia would use its "unstoppable" nuclear weapons in response to an incoming missile attack shortly after US president Trump announced the US would pull out of the INF Treaty, a Russian diplomat has both confirmed (and denied) what US war hawks have been saying: Moscow is preparing for war, just in case the US starts one.
Russian Official Confirms: "Russia is Preparing for war."
29 October, 2018
About 72 hours ago, Subscribers to this web site were given COVERT INTELLIGENCE from the meeting (just days earlier) between Russian President Vladimir Putin and US National Security Adviser John Bolton. That story (HERE) reported that Putin delivered an actual WARNING to Bolton about certain things taking place inside Syria, involving the US. Those certain things had to stop or else Russia would begin doing certain other things.
Putin also informed Bolton that the warning would be personally delivered from President Putin to President Trump when the two world leaders meet in Paris on November 11. Once the Russians know that President Trump has actually been told, "this will be the final warning."
Bolton responded that if Russia undertakes the actions they threatened, "it would mean war between the US and Russia" to which Putin allegedly responded "It looks like things are heading in that direction anyway."
On Friday at the United Nations, Russian Diplomat Andrey Belousov, deputy director of the Russian Foreign Ministry's Department of Nonproliferation and Arms Control, stated it plainly: "Yes, Russia is preparing for war, I can confirm it", Belousov said adding that "We are preparing to defend our homeland, our territorial integrity, our principles, our values, our people."
Russia's military build-up and large-scale drills, which have often been painted in the Western media as preparations for all-out war, are a defensive necessity, he said.
Russia doesn't seek a confrontation, he said, unlike the US. "Why else would the United States pull out of the [INF] Treaty, increase their nuclear potential, adopt a new nuclear doctrine that lowers the threshold for nuclear weapons use – that's the question for us all."
Belousov's words came after a Russian draft resolution to reinforce the INF Treaty, which bans intermediate-range nuclear weapons, was overwhelmingly rejected at the UN First Committee.
"Most of those who voted against were supporters of the INF Treaty. I don't understand their position," Belousov said. Among those who voted down the draft were the UK, Germany, France, and, of course, the US.
Trump's decision to scrap the Cold War-era agreement has alarmed both Europe and Moscow, which warned it would "make the world a more dangerous place" and vowed retaliation.
Washington has accused Russia of building missiles prohibited by the INF, while Moscow argued that American missile defense complexes in Europe can be easily turned into offensive weapons. Russian President Vladimir Putin warned that if the US moves to deploy intermediate-range nuclear missiles in Europe, it will put the whole of Europe at risk of a retaliatory strike. Europe will become a battlefield.
While the INF Treaty is the now-discussed big deal of the day, it is NOT the INF Treaty that will kick things off to war; it is what's happening in Syria that will START it. Likely on or shortly after November 11.
WORSE - President Putin, speaking about ongoing activities in Europe by the US and NATO, said forthrightly that Europe will become a battleground!
Turns out he was exactly right.
The United States Air Force has shipped about 100 munition containers into its Europe and Africa headquarters in Ramstein, Germany, making it the biggest shipment since the 1999 NATO bombing campaign in Yugoslavia, according to an official Air Force statement.
Ramstein base 86th Munitions Operations chief Sgt. David Head said the record October shipment “will be used for future theater operations and the evolving US European Command presence,” adding that the move aims to "support NATO’s European Deterrence Initiative (EDI) and augment the Air Force’s War Reserve Materiel in Europe".
The statement elaborated that the EDI is a plan seeking to "increase responsiveness and readiness by pre-positioning ammunition, fuel and equipment to enhance the U.S. Department of Defense’s ability to provide a rapid response against threats made by aggressive actors."
The Ramstein base is located in south western Germany and has been operating since 1953 as an American and NATO air force headquarters. It has been known to have been previously housing some of the US’s Europe-based nuclear arsenal and is also reportedly a vital drone operation and air transportation center for the US Air Force across the globe.
No official response has yet been made by any European or Russian official concerning the large shipment. Russian analysts, however, see it as a clear indication of adding tension in the continent.
"This is an indicator, a sign that Americans seriously consider the possibility of war in Europe. Consequently, they have started building up military arsenals...There is only one opponent here - the Russian Federation," explained editor-in-chief of the "National Defense" magazine Igor Korotchenko speaking to the Russia TASS News Agency.
Editor-in-chief of the Arsenal of the Fatherland magazine Viktor Murakhovsky believes the move is part of Operation Atlantic Resolve, a wide range of activities seeking to modernize NATO military infrastructure, specifically in Eastern Europe in response to what is described as "Russian action" in Ukraine.
"The plan envisages deploying 30 land battalions, 30 air fighter squadrons and 30 ships at NATO's 'eastern flank' within 30 days. Thus, they are creating not only infrastructure, but also stocking up ammunition, fuel and so on. This what they are doing now," he added.
Tensions have been recently heightening between the US, NATO and Russia as the North Atlantic Alliance has deployed tens of thousands of troops on Russia's western border in Norway as part of ongoing military drills.
Furthermore, US President Donald Trump announced last week that Washington plans to withdraw from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) with Russia, a move that has been severely denounced by Moscow.
Trainloads of Tanks
The situation is growing so dire that back on September 15, Russia began shipping trainloads of TANKS to their western border areas. Hundreds of (very old) T-62 tanks were shipped on a total of three trains, toward Europe, just short of the Ukraine border.
The T-62 is old, out of date, and easily defeated by our modern M1-A1 and M1-A2 tanks, but we don't have a lot of those in Europe, and Europe doesn't have a lot of their own, either. So while the T-62's can be defeated IF our tanks engage them, those same T-62's can make a lot of trouble before they're destroyed.
It's a tactic - send equipment they know cannot survive, and use that old equipment to "swarm" certain targets, smashing large segments of the battle area before they get wiped out.
It is known that trains with T-62 tanks were first seen in the Volgograd region of Russia, near the border with Rostov, and eventually in Rostov, near the border with uncontrolled Ukrainian government in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
Even Russians on Social media began talking about what's taking place:
Yet another trainload of T-62Ms in Kamensk-Shakhtinsky, Rostov Oblast. 19th of September. Note pale green color. Geolocated at 48.328927, 40.258952 (same location as with previous "white barrel stripes" T-62M train on 15th)
After the trainloads of T-62's, then images began surfacing of flatbed tractor trailers carrying the much more advanced T-72 main battle tanks in suburbs outside St. Petersburg, Russia. Here are photos of the far more advanced tanks, on flatbeds:
The US and NATO then began drills in Norway and now, in Finland, and just a week ago, the US sent an aircraft carrier battle group into the Arctic Circle for the first time in about 30 years. They sent the USS Harry Truman to be within striking range of Russia's Northern Fleet HQ!
For the first time in nearly 30 years, a U.S. aircraft carrier entered the Arctic Circle Oct. 19 to conduct operations in the Norwegian Sea.
Accompanied by select ships from Carrier Strike Group Eight (CSG-8), the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) traveled north to demonstrate the flexibility and toughness of U.S. naval forces through high-end warfare training with regional allies and partners. USS America (CV 66) was the last ship to operate in the area, participating in NATO exercise North Star in September 1991.
“We are unbelievably excited to be operating in the Norwegian Sea,” said Harry S. Truman Commanding Officer, Capt. Nick Dienna. “It has been over three decades since carrier aviation has been tested by this environment, and, despite the arduous weather and sea conditions, these men and women are demonstrating this ship can bring a full-spectrum of capabilities to bear anywhere in the world.”
The Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group (HSTCSG) will expand its compliment of capabilities off the coast of Norway, performing air, surface and subsurface operations while being confronted by the trio of freezing temperatures, fierce winds, and unpredictable seas. After honing its skills independently, HSTCSG will join 30 NATO allies and partner nations to participate in Trident Juncture 2018.
Meanwhile, Britain announced they were adopting a military posture for Arctic Warfare.
Step-by-Step, the US and NATO are moving equipment and men toward a confrontation with Russia. It's been going on for months, very slowly and very quietly.
First, they surrounded Russia with new NATO bases, then they built missile defense systems in Poland and Romania to first-strike Russia's nuclear arsenal.
Then, under Obama, they spent $5 BILLION to foment revolution inside Ukraine, to overthrow its government and install one favorable to the West.
Next, they outright LIED and blamed Russia for interfering in the US election, and used that LIE as the basis for enacting economic sanctions against Russia worse than those enacted upon Japan in the 1940'2 (which drove Japan to attack us.)
Now, we see the results. . . Clearly Russia is now preparing for war. It could start on or shortly after, November 11.
Beginning on January 18, 2018, the Russian military base at Hmeymim, Syria began being hit with attacks from primitive Drones believed to be operated by militant factions in Syria.
Numerous attacks were launched -- and continue to this day -- with improvised explosives being fired from those drones at Russian troops inside the base.
Russian soldiers have been seriously injured and a small few of them have been KILLED by these attacks.
After the debacle involving the Russian IL-20 being shot down by Syrian missiles during an Israeli attack, where the Israeli jets hid behind the IL-20 and used it as a radar shield to avoid being shot down themselves, Russia moved all sorts of better air defense gear to Syria.
Among the gear was the S-300 air defense system and Electronic Warfare systems.
Two weeks ago, another one of these primitive drone attacks was launched at the Hmeymim air base. But this time, the Russians engaged their electronic warfare systems at the drones, which turned around and moved out of range.
Then the drones came back.
During the attack, the Russians noted the presence (via radar) of a US Navy P-8 Poseidon aircraft operating offshore, nearby the Russian base.
So they re-aimed their electronic warfare jamming systems AT THAT U.S. PLANE and the very moment the Electronic Warfare gear hit the U.S. Plane . . . . all of the attacking drones fell right out of the sky!
The Russians then knew at that moment that the drones had been controlled by gear aboard THAT U.S. Plane.
Here is a photo of the actual plane that is alleged to have actually engaged in the drone attack:
The photo below shows one of the 13 drones that fell out of the sky the moment the US plane above was hit with Electronic Warfare. Obviously this is a primitive drone, one that would not normally be used by the US . . . unless we wanted "Plausible Deniability" . . . to be able to say "it wasn't us, we don't use trash like that . . . ."
These are the improvised explosive devices (IED's) being carried by the 13 drones, which have previously been used to attack and kill Russian troops at the Syrian base:
So what we have here is actual physical evidence, provided by Russia, that the United States of America has already perpetrated several acts of war against the Russian military inside Syria.
THEY ARE ACCUSING US OF ACTS OF WAR.
In all of Russia's history, they do not attack first. They wait to be attacked, and then they attack back.
The Russians now believe they have actually been attacked. By us.
Based on their long history, Russia now has the justification to attack us back.
This is what President Putin will talk about with President Trump on November 11. Putin will tell Trump exactly what he told National Security Adviser John Bolton this week: These attacks must stop or Russia will begin SHOOTING DOWN U.S. WAR PLANES ANYWHERE IN SYRIA. Putin will also tell Trump, this is the final warning.
Go read that again; THAT is what Putin told Bolton. THAT is what Putin will tell Trump.
This is confirmed to me directly by long-time Intelligence sources with whom I worked and with whom I forged friendships during my years with the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force. Recall that in those years, I was a "fully operational national security intelligence asset, with full Extra-Territorial Operating Authority" granted to me by the Office of Intelligence at FBI Headquarters in Washington. The Extra-Territorial authority meant I could -- and did -- work outside the United States. When those operations took place, the FBI coordinated with the CIA, but I did not work forthe CIA.
As you can well imagine, if Russia begins shooting down our planes, it will mean war. Direct war. Between the US and Russia, inside Syria.
What comes NEXT is really unknown.
Based on activities that have been taking place in Ukraine, and the movement of tanks to Russia's western border, we can assess that Russia expects to fight US/NATO in Syria, and is thus planning to give the US/NATO something far worse to worry about: Europe.
If that escalation takes place, Europe will be screaming like girls for the US to come defend them. And we can, as long as our east coast ship ports are functioning.
Sure, aircraft can haul some troops and supplies, but nowhere near the scale of what ships can carry.
The question then becomes, what will Russia do to stop ships coming from the US to supply Europe?
Could Russia strike our east coast port cities to delay, disrupt -- or DESTROY- those port cities?
If this trouble goes so far as to see invasion of Europe, then it is quite realistic that US east coast port cities - Boston, New York/ NJ, Baltimore, Charleston, Jacksonville, Miami would be attacked. Of course there are also military ports on the east coast: Groton, CT, Norfolk, VA, Kings Bay, GA and others.
Russia may not need to destroy them, just disable them for awhile.
Russian troops can make it from the Russian Border to Vienna, Austria (450 km away) in eight hours. So a very large portion of Europe can fall very quickly. Russia may just need a little more time to finish the job before the US can respond.
Disabling our east coast ports would do the trick.
Yet, if the US mainland suffers attacks, then it's wild-weasel. All hell breaks loose and things could very quickly escalate to missile strikes.
So there you have it. The Russians are accusing the US of acts of war and President Putin will "WARN" President trump to stop or face military attacks against our planes in Syria. That conversation will take place in Paris on November 11.
If the US stops, maybe we avoid war. But the US foreign policy is being run by people who are psychopaths. They will not stop because they are so impressed with who they are, they think nobody can stop them. They are willing to start a war with Russia to prove who has the biggest dick.
These people are crazy. And it is you and me who will pay the price for their insanity.
We may only have fourteen days before the shit hits the fan.
Prepare just in case. Have emergency food, water, electric generator, spare fuel for it, emergency HEAT (winter is fast approaching) and spare fuel for those heaters. Have emergency communications capabilities (CB or HAM radios, Home antenna on the roof, mobile CB/HAM radios in cars with antennas for the trunk or roof) in case cellular service gets knocked out. Have guns and ammunition to protect yourself, your family and your property from the hungry hordes who may come calling for YOUR food. Have spare medicines you may need to live on if supply chains get disrupted and medicines become scarce. Have a First Aid (Trauma) kit. Most of all, if you live on the east coast, HAVE A BUGOUT PLAN. Have a place where you can fall back to survive if the shit hits the fan. Make sure your whole family knows the plan.
We have not seen actual war on our continent in our lifetime. Yes, the attacks of 9/11 were an act of war, but very limited. And look at the chaos those limited attacks caused. Cellular systems overwhelmed. People panicking, not knowing where to go or how to get there. Now imagine actual sovereign-state warfare comes to our shores. The general public will be in hysterics.
Few of them have any clue about what they'll eat for dinner tonight, never mind having any food or water stored. 99% of them have no emergency supplies and no brains to pre-plan to get any.
If war comes, a LOT of people here are going to die - most because they were stupid. It was more important to go out drinking, smoking, dancing, and getting laid than to plan for any emergency. Hell, the overwhelming majority of them are so fucking dumb, they voted for Hillary Clinton -- and will go out next month and vote for the vicious phony Democrats AGAIN!! Do you really think they're in any position to survive?
Don't be like them.
Putin's Words to Bolton are they a Prophetic Warning
Israeli News Live
President Putin made a very ominous analogy as he spoke to Bolton in Sochi about the America seal and how it contained 13 arrows and 13 olives on an olive branch, but the Russian President suggested all the olives (a sign of peace) appeared to be eaten by the Eagle and wondered if the US only came with arrows
