As we have seen over the years, Russian leadership has built thousands of nuclear bomb shelters in Moscow for their citizens' protection in the event of a nuclear war breaking out, including a "mammoth underground military complex in the Ural Mountain," as described by NYT in 1996, and in 2015 they finished a brand new national defense center in Moscow that contains extensive underground facilities.
Amidst preparations for the survival of their citizens, Russia has also been building up their weapons arsenal, specifically their nuclear weapons, in some cases using technology that has worried U.S. Military leadership as the weapons gap shrinks between the U.S., Russia and China.
Today we see that Russia is now building dozens of underground nuclear command posts, with Mark Schneider, a former Pentagon nuclear policy official, now with the National Institute for Public Policy, a Virginia-based think tank, stating "Russia is getting ready for a big war which they assume will go nuclear, with them launching the first attacks."
His very next statement should make every single American sit back and take notice "We are not serious about preparing for a big war, much less a nuclear war."
"A lot of things they say they are doing relate to nuclear threats and nuclear warfighting,” he said. “Active and passive defense were a major Soviet priority and [current Russian leaders] are Soviets in everything but name."
Russia is engaged in a major buildup of strategic nuclear forces, building new missiles, submarines, and bombers. A State Department report on Russian activities under the New START arms treaty stated in the spring that Moscow added 153 strategic nuclear warheads to its arsenal under the treaty.
The increase in warheads is said to be the result of the deployment of new SS-27 Mod 2 intercontinental ballistic missiles with multiple warheads and SS-N-32 submarine-launched missiles.
In addition to new missiles, Russia is building a drone submarine, code-named 'Kanyon,' which is said to be designed to carry a megaton-class warhead. Moscow also is moving ahead with a hypersonic strike vehicle designed to deliver nuclear warheads through advanced missile defense systems.
Not only is the Obama administration "not serious" about preparing for a nuclear war, nor is the U.S. government preparing shelters for their citizenry, but Barack Obama is engaged in a battle with his own U.S. Cabinet members and our allies across the globe, in his push to enhance his "nuclear disarmament agenda" before leaving office.
WASHINGTON—A proposal under consideration at the White House to reverse decades of U.S. nuclear policy by declaring a "No First Use" protocol for nuclear weapons has run into opposition from top cabinet officials and U.S. allies.
The opposition, from Secretary of State John Kerry, Secretary of Defense Ash Carter and Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz, as well as allies in Europe and Asia, leaves President Barack Obama with few ambitious options to enhance his nuclear disarmament agenda before leaving office, unless he wants to override the dissent.
The possibility of a "No First Use" declaration—which would see the U.S. explicitly rule out a first strike with a nuclear weapon in any conflict—met resistance at a National Security Council meeting in July, where the Obama administration reviewed possible nuclear disarmament initiatives it could roll out before the end of the president’s term.
During the discussions, Mr. Kerry cited concerns raised by U.S. allies that rely on the American nuclear triad for their security, according to people familiar with the talks. The U.K., France, Japan and South Korea have expressed reservations about a "No First Use" declaration, people familiar with their positions said. Germany has also raised concerns, one of the people said.
Between the massive influx of illegal immigrants pouring over the borders, the importation of jihadists among the Syrian "refugees" as part of the Refugee Resettlement Program, the constant push for "gun control," and Obama's desire to take America's nuclear deterrence options off the table, one can only conclude that Obama is deliberately attempting to turn Americans into defenseless sitting ducks.
Russia has been preparing for a nuclear war since the fall of the Soviet Union while the U.S. inexplicably seems to be preparing to surrender. Perhaps that is what Obama meant when he was caught on a hot mic telling the Russian PM to pass a message along to Vladimir Putin that he would have more "flexibility" after his election.
Flexibility to surrender.
Below Alex Jones breaks down the western mainstream media cover-up of Vladimir Putin warning journalists of war. The Russian president met with foreign journalists at the conclusion of the Saint Petersburg International Economic Forum on June 17th, and left no one in any doubt that the world is headed down a course which could lead to nuclear war.
