Surprise Nuclear Attack On Russia To Liberate Ukraine

Politics / Nuclear Weapons Jul 26, 2014 - 08:34 PM GMT

By: Andrew_McKillop


Don't Be Scared of Nuclear War
Quite fantastically, but printed in black and white in sturdy propaganda outlets like 'Wall Street Journal' we are informed that of course anonymous and unidentified senior US strategists have let 'WSJ' know that nuclear first strike against Russia is possible. It is feasible, in their opinion, and secondly would give total victory to the US and its allies in Europe. Uukraine would be liberated.

Presumably the nuclear strikes would be sufficiently far upwind of the Ukrainian border to prevent downwind nuclear fallout from harming the newly liberated and happy Ukraine. Otherwise, it will no longer need any help at all from the IMF, Brussels or US.

The good news is that nuclear war with Russia is possible.

The Curse of History
Few critics of apocalyptic end-times religious sects, several of which are established and well-funded churches in the USA, examine the direct link between the decadent pseudo-philosophy they preach - and US foreign policy.  Influential policy strategists like Zbigniew Brzezinski will for example hotly deny they want nuclear war with Russia. They only want to teach Russia a lesson and put Vladimir Putin in his right place – which they do not say outright is automatically his coffin, just like Saddam Hussein or Muammar Gaddafi.

Recent news in the run-up to war with Russia using Ukraine as the lever or 'raison de geurre' is somber. It includes not only Russia's obvious culpability for the MH17 airliner outrage and firing artillery from Russian territory into Ukraine – but also Russia's decision to ban the sale of several lines of McDonalds products including certain burgers and shakes. This is dangerously provocative, but following that good old first nuclear strike, McDonalds shakes and burger sales could unfortunately get even shakier.

War fever as it is sometimes called, suggesting its like a bad head cold, ignores the psychopathic and sociopathic nature of preaching war. It is not a contagious disease but is willed and self-contracted. It has a long twin track with apocalyptic religious and semi-religious philosophies, which provide supposed moral and intellectual grounds for rushing to war. Plenty of these doctrines and philosophies, we can note, deny the existence of history and therefore any precedent or previous cases of going to war – as they define war. Their final war is Heroic and Ecstatic.

No Precedent
The Last War is therefore the first. It can only be victorious for the Good, even if it is bloody, and in this case Bible-derived numerology of a childish nature is added to tell us the number of deaths and the number of days the Heroic Battle will take.

Simply because duodecimalism came a little later than decimalism (after all you only have 10 fingers on your two hands), when the number 2 was added to 10, Bible-derived numerology can forecast the death toll. This is the square of 12, of course multiplied by 1000 (because its a Heroic War), giving us 144 000 dead. Also, this magic number will give you the height, in various units like the Greek stade, of the New Jerusalem's city walls to be built straight after the Last War.  Although Jerusalem isnt located in Ukraine the urban development could possibly use funds from Qatar or KSA, who always support Christian endeavors, but the funding method is not explained in end-times preaching

Pretending there are no precedents is highly advantageous for Mass Destruction philosophers, peddling the final battle and final war. This is of course both insane and insanely dangerous and to prove this, the doctrine of Final War sometimes openly claims that “we have the technology”.

For a few years following World War II, but no longer than that, the US could be said to have “enjoyed” total military supremacy. After being the first nation to possess (and use) atom bombs or fission weapons, it was also the first to possess thermonuclear weapons (fusion bombs). These, we can note, either no longer exist at all because their upkeep is so complex, costly, and hazardous to the health of personnel, or are potentially able to be used but only after a certain period of time for rehabilitation. Operational nuclear weapon stocks of the 9 or 10 nations possessing them today are exclusively atom or fission bombs, of smaller and smaller size, that is cheap and effective!

Abundant too. Anybody who has read any of my many articles on the subject of civil nuclear power plants (NPPs) having the dual role of “asymmetric nuclear weapons” or giant dirty bombs, will understand that the world possesses hundreds of thousands of Hiroshima-equivalent radiation weapons. Why NPPs located in enemy territory would not be the very first targets to attack in an all-out war is a question I can't answer. Any war I was forced to run would hit the NPPs of our enemies from Day 1 Their ability to bounce back from that would be rather low, depending how many NPP weapons they have stationed on their home territory for me to attack. First strike!
All-out nuclear war has no precedent. The bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki concerned dropping bombs on 97% to 99% civilian populations in a country that had already been defeated and had no nuclear weapons itself.  Because there is no precedent for nuclear war, therefore, it is uber-attractive or even fascinating for the mentally subnormal and for psychopaths calling themselves religious intellectuals – and great foreign policy advisors and analysts! They can play innocent or they can play stupid but they have no excuse for preaching nuclear war.

Into The Breach
To date and so far, but we are moving forward, the military materiel and equipment on show and in use in Ukraine is mostly 1980s-vintage if not older. Antique tanks and howitzers, and of course the unavoidable AK47, in production since 1949 and either 5.56mm or 7.62mm or heavier caliber, outdated rocket launchers, and even the delightfully named (by NATO) SA11 “Gadfly” surface-to-air missile system first developed by the then-USSR in 1979 using solid-fuel rocketry dating from before World War II. To be sure these “Gadflies” could theoretically be used to take out an NPP somewhere (Ukraine still has 15 of them – remember Chernobyl?), but much better-adapted and inexpensive materiel exists for that mission. Highly effective and cheap.

The Ukrainian 15-reactor fleet is a simply marvelous stock of Dirty Bombs for anybody who wants a serious and real war, after which the country is evacuated – totally.  Russia also has very tempting targets. The first would be any of its antique and dangerous (nicknamed “the world's most dangerous reactors”) VVER-440s and VVER-1000s delivering 440 MW and 1000 MW. Some of these threats to the world, with or without a war, were built before the year 1970 with a design lifetime of 35 years. So they are overdue for replacement and we can help out! With the right selection of target VVERs we could likely make one-third of Russia totally uninhabitable for a long time.

You want nuclear war?

The loony preachers of the Apocalypse, and their friends with a nice-paid job in government show that while it is not obligatory to be stupid, as well as mentally deranged, that helps a lot. For Americans, of course, there is the Atlantic Ocean to absorb some of the radiation fallout – they can pray to God – but the Pacific Ocean's ever-rising radiation pollution shows what happened, and happens in the event of the major peacetime disaster at the 6-reactor Fukushima complex in 2011.

When we have a wartime disaster or rather multiple disasters at NPPs, the damage will be vastly higher. Taking Fukushima as our model, we can forecast what would have happened if all 6 of its reactors had been “taken out” by the right military ordnance. Greater Tokyo would have been totally evacuated and would be a Ghost City (like Pripiat in Ukraine, close to Chernobyl) in the hours and days following the first military strike – and not necessarily a nuclear strike, either!

You still want a nuclear war?

How The Psychopaths Got That Way
Examining why and how psychopaths get that way, even if they pass themselves off as foreign policy advisors, their deranged mental state is almost invariably schizophrenic. In other words they have obsessionally developed competing antinomic paradigms in what can be a completely unconscious process. When it concerns foreign policy (we mean war) the advisors may on the one hand have the “good times paradigm” playing in their mind. Making the past repeat is a human craving – as long as it is the good-times past. So-called conservatives and traditionalists say they intend doing that.

Conversely the exact opposite paradigm of apocalypse now, to destroy the present bad times also exists in their deranged minds, and not only war strategists think that way - the “neolib” economic doctrine of the 1980s preached the destruction of the “Soviet style economy”. In religious doctrine the doctrine of the Apocalypse is often heavily present. Unfortunately for ideologues claiming they have religious doctrine on their side, the Christian religion, exactly like the other two “Abrahamic religions” of Judaism and Islam, has hard-wired doctrinal confusion on whether the pure allegory of the Apocalypse must be enacted in the real world. Doctrinal dispute can end in catastrophe.

The three Abrahamic religions are riven with periodic, even cyclic doctrinal splitting and mutation. We can argue that they are at least 10 or more religions, today. The real danger is none of these religions and their doctrines has any interest in, or knowledge of military technology. Their conception of Heroic War last played out in 1914-1918 when, some days and weeks in heroic battles such as Verdun and the Somme, about 800 to 2000 soldiers died every hour, round the clock. Wasn't that a lovely war?

Nuclear weapons don't allow that “cosy” past to operate, today. Deny it at everybody's risk and peril.
