“All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when we are able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must appear inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near.” ― Sun tzu, The Art of War
For those who aren't aware of the recent events that Snyder is speaking of, besides Iran having allegedly just crossed a critical uranium enrichment threshold, and the U.S. and Israel have both warned that they will take military action to stop Iran’s nuclear program if that is what is necessary, 'something' just happened that may have the world on the edge of 'Armageddon'.
On Tuesday President Trump didn’t have any public events scheduled, and that was a bit strange, but Vice President Mike Pence was supposed to appear at an event in New Hampshire. Unfortunately, that trip was suddenly canceled after Pence had already boarded the plane, and Pence was ordered to return to the White House…
In the immediate aftermath of his abrupt cancellation of an event in New Hampshire, the reasons for Vice President Mike Pence’s reversal are still unknown. The White House has stayed mum on why Pence was called back to the White House, declining to elaborate at all on the reason for the change of plans.
And as Snyder's story points out, while VP Pence was being called back to Washington DC for emergency meetings with President Trump, Russia's President Putin had gathered his top military staff for emergency meetings as well. Just a coincidence that America's top leadership were having emergency meetings while Russia's top leadership was as well? As former President Franklin D. Roosevelt once said, "In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way."
Meanwhile, Russian President Vladimir Putin “called an urgent meeting” with his top military officials on Tuesday…
Vladimir Putin today called an urgent meeting with defence chiefs hours after 14 sailors died in a mystery submarine blast.
The Russian leader cancelled his schedule for a meeting with his defence minister Sergei Shoigu.
Fire broke out on one of the Russian navy’s deep-sea research submersibles, and toxic fumes from the blaze killed 14 sailors aboard, Russia’s Defense Ministry said Tuesday, although it released few details about the disaster or the vessel involved.
The Defense Ministry did not say how many sailors were aboard the vessel during Monday’s fire, whether there were any survivors or if it was submerged at the time. But Russian media reported it was the country’s most secret submersible, a nuclear-powered vessel designed for sensitive missions at great depths.
So what aren't we being told? As Snyder then points out, this is where it gets very strange if DEBKA is correct.:
DEBKA is claiming that their military sources are reporting that there was a confrontation between a U.S. submarine and a Russian submarine, and that it resulted in the U.S. submarine being hit by a torpedo…
First reports reaching DEBKAfile’s military sources say that a US submarine intercepted a Russian nuclear sub in American waters opposite Alaska. The Russian sub escorting the nuclear submarine responded with a Balkan 2000 torpedo and scuttled the US vessel. Urgent consultations in both the White House and the Kremlin were taking place on Tuesday night. US Vice President Mike Pence called off an appearance in New Hampshire after being recalled to Washington for a conference called by President Donald Trump without explanation.
Russian President Vladimir Putin cancelled an engagement and headed for the Kremlin to confer with Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and military chiefs, after learning that 14 submariners died in a fire that broke out on a nuclear-powered “experimental submarine in Russian waters.” This account carried in Russian media varies in most respects from the first reports reaching this site and may refer to a separate incident. They report between 14 and 17 members of an AS-12 nuclear powered submarine died of poisonous fumes caused by a fire aboard the vessel. The submarine was described as experimental and unarmed but often used in spy missions. It is unclear how many of the 25 crew survived.
And now we learn in this story from Futurism that the Russian submarine that caught fire may have been a cable cutting vessel, with its purpose being the cutting of internet cables running at the bottom of the ocean.
And while we'd love to be able to give a definitive answer as to what happened in the oceans off of Alaska, as VP Pence's own staff had pointed out, "we'll find out within two weeks" hinting that immediate war may not be imminent but also reminding us of 1 Thessalonians 5:3, "For when they shall say peace and safety, then sudden destruction cometh upon them".
We now feel that it is our duty, as Russians living in the US, to warn the American people that they are being lied to, and to tell them the truth. And the truth is simply this: If there is going to be a war with Russia, then the United States will most certainly be destroyed, and most of us will end up dead.
Thus, if tomorrow a war were to break out between the US and Russia, it is guaranteed that the US would be obliterated. At a minimum, there would no longer be an electric grid, no internet, no oil and gas pipelines, no interstate highway system, no air transportation or GPS-based navigation. Financial centers would lie in ruins. Government at every level would cease to function. US armed forces, stationed all around the globe, would no longer be resupplied. At a maximum, the entire landmass of the US would be covered by a layer of radioactive ash. We tell you this not to be alarmist, but because, based on everything we know, we are ourselves alarmed. If attacked, Russia will not back down; she will retaliate, and she will utterly annihilate the United States.
And while there might be those who actually believe that the US could 'win' such a war, their story offered us this blunt reminder, a reminder of Russia's 'dead hand' doomsday system that will launch a blistering nuclear attack against the US even if the entire Russia leadership chain of command is dead.
We are just as certain that if Russia is attacked, or even threatened with attack, she will not back down, and that the Russian leadership will not “blink.” With great sadness and a heavy heart they will do their sworn duty and unleash a nuclear barrage from which the United States will never recover. Even if the entire Russian leadership is killed in a first strike, the so-called “Dead Hand” (the “Perimetr” system) will automatically launch enough nukes to wipe the USA off the political map. We feel that it is our duty to do all we can to prevent such a catastrophe.
So we ask ANP readers to please join us in prayer for America and the world this 4th of July weekend and please prepare with absolutely anything possible in the days ahead and this 'event' off of the coast of Alaska happening during the same time period as the recent massive internet outage via 'cloudfare' that knocked ANP, the Drudge Report, SteveQuayle.com and much of the independent news media offline.
