Russia Conducts Full "Nuclear Triad" Drill, Launches Topol-M ICBM
While east Ukraine, aka the Donetsk Republic, was voting over the weekend in what the west pre-emptively classified as another sham vote as its outcome would merely push east Ukraine even closer to the Kremlin, Russia was busy conducting its most comprehensive Nuclear preparedness drill in recent history, one involving the entire "nuclear triad" consisting of strategic bombers; submarines and an the ICBM shown below on Saturday morning.

Your Say

The W Administration was detailing how the Russians were violating The Intermediate Nuclear Forces Treaty at the same time they were negotiating The New Start Treaty. It is now clear the Russians are also violating the New Start Treaty as well.

BTW your and my RINO Senators voted for The New Start Treaty which authorizes the Russians to modernize and increase their nuke forces while the US cuts and lets rust into obsolescence their nuke forces.

"Civil war in America. Chinese expansion. War in the Middle East. Titor’s future scenario becomes all too easy to believe as his story moves to its frightening climax: the nuclear destruction of the United States of America. 'In 2015,' Titor says, 'Russia launches a nuclear strike against the major cities in the United States... China and Europe. Cities and large military areas in the entire country [are attacked]... [An] attack on Europe is in response to a unified European army that masses and moves East from Germany.'

"Frightened by the increasingly irrational and unpredictable United States government, the Russian leadership decides to render the threat of nuclear war moot by destroying all the nuclear weapons that are aimed at Russia. The result is disastrous for both Washington and Moscow. 'The United States counter attacks [sic],' reveals Titor, presumably resulting in tremendous loss of life. 'The US cities are destroyed along with the AFE (American Federal Empire)... The European Union and China were also destroyed.'
[...]

“'The US cities are destroyed [in the nuclear attack] along with the AFE (American Federal Empire),' Titor recalls. 'Thus we (in the country) won... the “enemy” that was attacked by Russia in the U.S. was the forces of the government you live under right now... [F]rom my viewpoint, Russia attacked my enemy who was in the U.S. cities.'

“'Russia’s enemy in the United States is not you, the average person', Titor explains. 'Russia’s enemy is the United States government'.

"Thus it is Russia, a nation that for so long was a socialist empire and a totalitarian nightmare. that ironically serves to end the global socialist New World Order and the American police state that are to come..."

"Civil war in America. Chinese expansion..."

The Russians are ace chess players. I can't help wondering if this muscle-flexing is not a reboot of the Cold War but merely preparation for what is coming down the pike.

"The result is disastrous for both Washington and Moscow."

Laugh at the name, but Mutual Assured Destruction (MAD) kept *everyone* safe, even though there were Cold Warriors on both sides that argued for a pre-emptive strike. They may have been godless commies, but the Russians were (and are) rational - at least in the Game Theory sense of wanting the best possible outcome. As I said, chess players.

It makes a nice plot point, but why would they choose an outcome that leaves them not only worse off, but at the mercy of the other players on the board? Especially if one of the conflicts they are preparing for is with the Chinese who have made no secret of their expansionist agenda. Anyone want to play Battle for Siberia?
