I am a baby-boomer and grew up in the peak of the cold war. What we face today from the angry bear is magnitudes more dangerous than anything I ever saw in my youth.
Having spent most of my adult life in the military, or working for the Military Industrial Complex (facilitating Department of Defense contracts during this dangerous time-frame), makes me eminently qualified to voice my strong and growing concerns.
Today as Americans, we hear more and more about evil Russia. The Russians are brutally invading Ukraine and Crimea … REALLY? These nations mentioned are close neighbors of Russia, contain many Russian citizens from the old Soviet Union, and regional struggles have raged there for centuries, now spurred on by Neocon interference from the USA and NATO.
But no mention is made of American imperialism across thousands of miles, and oceans, separated from our safe country, where the massive US and NATO military machine attacks or invades sovereign nations at will, and topples governments resulting in decades of perpetual war and millions dead.
These sovereign nations are MUCH closer to Russia’s backyard than Americas by a huge margin!
NEWS FLASH: Russia, due to the above track record, DOES see this as a massive encroachment into its immediate sphere of influence (especially Ukraine), and an eminent threat existing as close as its very borders. The Russian bear is spooked and prepares for all out war with the USA, NATO and western powers. Russia (having learned painful lessons from history) will do whatever is necessary to “protect itself”.
Question … How would the USA react if Russia invaded and brutally occupied Canada or Mexico … ???
Of course to hear it told NONE of this is the fault of NATO, the western powers and the USA … We didn’t start it … we don’t want it … it’s all the fault of those evil, power hungry Russians and Putin’s Aggression.
This is the story We the People are being fed daily. Well WAKE UP because we are being (no big surprise here for those of us who are aware) LIED to !!!
Via a mechanism called “Selective Cooperation” (the USA and her minion nations take, and Russia gives), the USA has embarked on a path of subjugating Russia in the same fashion we and the Allied powers subjugated Germany and Japan after WWII.
Since the early 1990’s the USA and NATO have treated the fall of the Iron Curtain, and end of the Cold War with the USSR in the same fashion they treated the Axis powers they defeated … and to the victors go the spoils! Corporate carpetbaggers and cabals have inundated Russia with corruption and graft.
We are intentionally devaluing their currency, isolating their energy industry and challenging their regional leadership. The Russian people are suffering as a result of all this and more. This could not be more wrong or dangerous.
You don’t take a mother bears cub, you don’t sneak up on a wild bear, and you certainly DON’T kick a bear in the genitals just to see what happens! Because the end result of all three will always be an angry and seriously dangerous bear willing to fight to the death to protect themselves and their own!
Russia to this day still boast a very modern, sizable and powerful military. Its fleet still contains many of the worlds best submarines capable of delivering almost unhindered, both nuclear ballistic and cruise missiles to the heart of the American homeland. Their land based nuclear missiles outnumber their counterparts in western countries, with most NATO countries being right on their front doorstep, well within rapid striking distance. Their army is large and well equip to take on all comers. This bear has strong teeth, sharp claws and massive strength to call on.
Anyone knowing anything about Russian tenacity in the face of attack or invasion, who truly believes they will tolerate a limited strike and then roll over is an IDIOT (ask Hitler) … It has never happened and never will. When the first shot is fired … Russia is ALL IN and God have mercy on our miserable souls!
Please remember America (including Pearl Harbor) has never suffered a massive hostile invasion killing tens of millions, protecting our homeland … but the Russians have, and retain a strong collective memory of this sacrifice. Do you honestly believe they will not offer up that sacrifice again? Would Americans (who have never experienced this scenario) have the strength or testicular fortitude to match their Russian counterparts?
Today we stand on the precipice of WW III … and this is by no means a stretch of the imagination in any fashion. There will be no winner of this war! A vast majority of humanity will very likely be slammed back to the stone-age, and Russia will more than hold her own militarily. America as we know it will be reduced to ashes and our children (if they survive at all) will inherit a savage and untenable planet.
I will not waste my time or yours arguing the finer points of who is right or wrong … IT DOES NOT MATTER and there is always enough blame to go around. Arguing is senseless when the very survival of humanity hangs in a very precarious balance. The only thing that matters is …
THIS CANNOT BE ALLOWED TO CONTINUE
TLB would like to thank Contributor and Partner Dave Hodges of The Common Sense Show for bringing the below video to our attention. Watch and listen … then get off your dead ass and speak out, for yourself, your children, the survival of America and quite possibly humanity!
This is no joke, no lie, no exaggeration, and no time to hide under a rock … This could very well be the closest we have ever come to the total destruction of humanity, and these insane Neocons who believe attacking Russia, or backing her into a corner far enough she feels she must strike first, is winnable …
MUST BE STOPPED !!!
Noted Russian expert, Stephen Cohen says that Russia and NATO are closer to war than at anytime since the Cuban Missile Crisis. Cohen feels that both sides are acting in a reckless manner. His speech on the subject is to the point and very damning. Please take the time to watch this … It may quite possibly be the most important thing you have seen in a very long time!
