“And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.” (Matthew 24:6)
War drums are beating regarding Russia, Ukraine and the West. Russia is massing troops, tanks and artillery on the Ukrainian border. The situation has been ratcheting up for weeks now. The US and its allies have sent ships into the Black Sea in a show of force and then quickly left after Moscow issued threats. The US did it again in early November, drawing a protest from and EU Parliamentarian. “The presence of the ‘Mount Whitney’, flagship of the US Sixth Fleet and the USS Porter in the Black Sea, as well as the NATO naval maneuvers, are clearly a provocation of Russia.” Thierry Mariani noted that this could result in “into a hazardous military offensive in Donbass or an armed provocation of Russia in the Black Sea.”[i] Elements of the Western press whipped up the war talk. The UK’s The Sun, ran an article called Zero Hour, deliberating on what they believed would be a coming “blitzkrieg” style tank strike enabled by a “devastating missile barrage & jammed” communications.[ii] And Britain’s Mirror ran a story headlined: “British special forces ready to deploy 600 troops to Ukraine amid Russia invasion fears.” “British task force of SAS and Paras set to mobilise to Ukraine as MI6 warns the prime minister that President Putin could be a threat to Ukraine and the west.”[iii] And the press was careful to paint Ukraine as the overmatched victim of the Russian bully.
And it’s true, Russian forces are massing on the border. But there’s a history between Ukraine & Russia & the West that may shine a different light on the story. Hal Turner offered this explanation. “The west is supplying Ukraine with advanced, long range, missiles, capable of reaching Moscow.” The Brits are selling them the Brimstone “air-launched ground attack missiles.” “In addition, Turkey has begun supplying attack drones to Ukraine, which Ukraine promptly began using inside its own country!” A drone struck an artillery piece of the separatist rebels. While the military situation still does look dire for Ukraine, their leadership has actually been rather regularly mouthing off to their giant neighbor. Alexey Arestovich, an advisor to Ukrainian President Zelensky, offered this at a TV interview. “Putin will get to the point, in the foreseeable future, where Ukrainian missiles will be aimed at Moscow, and for one simple reason: we are working on a missile program,” he explained. “And our operational-tactical missiles will be able to reach Moscow.” Then he predicted that “would be the end of the Russian army and the end of the Russian Federation.”[iv] A rather bold brag for the little guy, unless he was sure that they would have timely outside help.
As a side note, Belarus, a Russian client-state has been inundated with Middle Eastern migrants wanting to reach the EU. So, they have been moving them toward the their border with Poland and some reports say equipping them to assault that border. And in another sign that Russia and the West may be drifting toward war, the Norwegian Undersea Surveillance Network had its’ cables cut. “The seafloor ocean observatory off the coast of northern Norway can detect submarine traffic, which could make it a prime target for the Russians.” The observatory suffered “extensive damage” to its’ “network of underwater cables and sensors located on the Norwegian Continental Shelf, an area of strategic interest for both Norway and Russia.”[v]
So, let’s talk a little bit about the history of this situation. The crisis in Ukraine began back in 2014 when the CIA engineered a coup against a democratically elected pro-Russian president of Ukraine. It was dubbed a ‘color revolution’ and in the event the President fled and the US essentially installed a pro-Western replacement. Around the same time, Crimea, which had been traditionally and ethnically Russian for centuries but was assigned to be under Ukraine by Khrushchev in the old Soviet system during the 1950’s, was annexed by Russia. The Crimeans had voted in favor of the move to the tune of 96%. Now, there are a couple of other pro-Russian provinces – together called the Donbass – that want to break away from Ukraine and come under Russian control.
Now enter the complicating factor. The Nordstream 2 Pipeline which is designed to bring Russian natural gas to Europe. Right now, the gas transits through Ukraine and Russia pays fees for that transit. Under Nordstream 2, “Russia will divert gas around the country and no longer pay its neighbour billions of dollars in transit fees each year,” a big hit to Ukraine’s economy.[vi] Then add in the fact that low-level fighting has been going on between the rebels who want to be under Russia and the Ukrainian Forces. Then toss this in to the mix. The US wants to put missile batteries in Ukraine, just 5 minutes or so from Russian nuclear sites. Well, Putin just won’t have that. The Russians wouldn’t have time to defend their missile sites. So to Moscow, this matter is one of existential survival.
Oh, but it gets better! Now the CIA along with Polish operatives have been caught on tape – and the tape has been played on Russian State Television – attempting to arrange a coup to oust the President of Belarus, a Russian ally. “An armed uprising with many dead, the murder of President Lukashenko and his family, and even the shutdown of the Belarusian electricity grid were planned….The plotters discussed all of this, and the recordings were published.” This was a plan that was to be carried out with the help of Western intelligence agencies.[vii] In the wake of the foiled coup, Belarus moved toward merger with Russia. All of this was just happening months ago, in the Spring of 2021[viii]
Here’s the bottom line on all of this. Russia has a military doctrine that states that they would not hesitate to use nuclear weapons at the front end of a conflict. Turner offered this. “Russia will use nukes the moment the U.S. and NATO start mobilizing a number of forces and assets that will crush Russia. U.S. Strategic Command seems unable to understand that Russia will use nukes BEFORE a Russia-NATO war even starts.” Russia CANNOT afford to lose Crimea. They cannot afford to lose the pipeline. Turner calls this, “a fight for national survival.”[ix] We can get a picture of just how serious this all is when we understand that “cities in Ukraine and in Russia have begun testing the NUCLEAR BLAST DOORS installed in their public subway systems which are some (not all) of the BOMB SHELTERS for their population.” Last year Russia conducted a civil defense drill that saw them put 40 million citizens into shelters. Many of these shelters are equipped with stores of food, water and medicine. The US has no such preparations to protect their citizenry.[x]
To learn just how this may all play out we only need listen to Margarita Simonyan, the “Director of Russia’s state-run international media giants, RT and Sputnik.” Here is what she said in a recent interview.
“War is inevitable. I do not believe that this will be a large-scale hot war, like World War II, and I do not believe there will be a long Cold War. It will be a war of the third type: the cyber war. In conventional war, we could defeat Ukraine in two days. But it will be another kind of war. We’ll do it, and then [the U.S.] will respond by turning off power to [a major Russian city like] Voronezh. Russia needs to be ready for this war, which is unavoidable, and of course it will start in Ukraine.” She believes that Russia is “invincible where conventional war is concerned, but forget about conventional war…it will be a war of infrastructures.”
What Simonyan is talking about is cyber warfare and Russia has been engaged in this sort of activity against the US for some time now. Then add in the use of an EMP or Electro-Magnetic-Pulse weapon generated by a nuclear explosion in the atmosphere – and you create the ability to take down the electrical grid of all or part of the American infrastructure. Food and fuel distribution would stop immediately. Store shelves would be emptied within hours. We would be forced back to a 18th century existence with none of the skills to pull that off. Cars and trucks wouldn’t start. Medical facilities would be helpless. Anarchy would follow. Some of the estimates have the death toll going to 80%. [It is interesting that Deagel estimates that by 2025 the US population will stand at about 100 million, down from its’ current level of 328 million.] Russia is a capable enemy in this area. In “December 2020, DHS disclosed Russia’s Solar Winds cyber-attack penetrated 18,000 U.S. Government and private sector agencies and corporations, including the Defense Department and U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency. Damage is still being evaluated.”[xi] But the Ukraine is not the only sector of the globe heating up right now. As we look at the unsettling news in other areas, recall that, in The Armageddon Script by Peter Lemesurier, the New World Order folks have revealed a plan to usher in the Antichrist. Part of the plan included a three-front-war. It would involve a Middle East conflict between the Arab states and Israel, a nuclear confrontation on the Korean Peninsula and a Chinese invasion of Taiwan. Of course, you could substitute or add in a conflict over the Ukraine.
More Signs of War Preps
Headline in The Sun- November 16, 2021 – “China ‘is building warships to launch fighter jets and sink vessels around the world.” – “Beijing appears to have intensified its wargames in recent months as determined officials try to reach parity with the United States.” The Chinese are practicing on full size mock-ups of actual US warships.
The Drive – November 11, 2021 – “China Is Using E-3 Sentry Mockups For Targets On Its Ballistic Missile Impact Range.” – “The U.S. Air Force’s E-3s would be at the top of China’s target list should a conflict erupt between it and the United States.” The E-3 Sentry is an airborne early warning and control aircraft or AWACS. The Drive details some more of the latest discoveries. “Concerns over China’s rapidly evolving high-end military capabilities have hit a crescendo in recent weeks. The massive expansion of its strategic arsenal, the test of a fractional orbital bombardment-like system, the emergence of a two-seat J-20 and carrier-capable FC-31 derivative — both stealth fighters — along with the real potential for new, more advanced combat aircraft types on the horizon, are just some the developments that have grabbed headlines as of late. Even more recently, the discovery of massive moving targets in China’s vast desert expanse that emulate American warships has added to the pile.”
THE HEADLINE OF AN ARTICLE TAKEN DOWN BY THE JERUSALEM POST – “Satellites, ships in crosshairs: Are Russia, China running circles around US?” –
“analysis Russia is carrying out missile tests on satellites and China has built mock US aircraft carriers for target practice. Are these threats to the US?”
