On the brink of World War III ?

Are we on the brink of World War III ?!?

The rumors of wars has certainly begun as we have more and more political figures either stating WW3 is just around the corner or is already here. Has World War III already begun? WWI began with an assassination, WWII began with Hitler’s invasion of Poland. But WWIII could certainly start differently.

As conservative talk show host Glenn Beck stated, WW3 is on the horizon and “nobody will recognize it yet.” Let’s look at a few of the prominent figures that warn us of WW3….

On the brink of world war III Nuclear Armageddon and the last world war for humankind - http://www.alamongordo.com/

Conflict is rampant on our planet unlike anything we’ve seen in recent memory: Israel, Palestine, Russia, Ukraine, Turkey, Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, North Korea, we even have radical Islamic infiltration of our own government that will soon lead to war within our own borders.

But not everyone is fearful of such an event, in fact, some are even hoping for or even designing it. It’s been said that all wars are ‘banker wars’.  As Major General Smedley Butler puts it, War is a racket”.

If my sons did not want wars, there would be noneGutle Schnaper Rothschild

So here we are with virtually all major countries in the world bankrupt and on the verge of collapse. If we continue to follow history, a world war would certainly be pursuant to or preempt an economic collapse. It’s the mainstay for the ruling class utilize war to wipe the slate clean after fiat currencies, with their short 30-40 year life span, collapse.

Vladimir Putin States World War 3 is ‘Inevitable’

In a speech Putin stated that World War 3 is ‘inevitable’ and he has certainly done his part in setting the stage for a global confict, naming NATO and the U.S. as Russia’s greatest threats. He accuses NATO of ‘surrounding’ Russia and even signed a document stating that NATO has committed “violations of international law,” which is a very serious and inflammatory charge.

The following are excerpts of Putin’s speech delivered at the Valdai conference in Sochi, just a few days ago. The speech was directed at Western elites.

Russia will no longer play games with the United States and engage in back-room negotiations… Russia is prepared for serious agreements, but only if these agreements are conducive to collective security… All systems of global collective security now lie in ruins. There are no longer any international security guarantees at all and the party responsible for the destruction of global collective security is The United States of America…

…The builders of the New World Order have failed by having built a sand castleRussia favors a conservative approach to introducing innovations into the social order, but is not opposed to investigating and discussing such innovations, to see if introducing any of them might be justified…

…Russia has no intention of building an empire of their own, but will not go fishing in the murky waters created by America’s ever-expanding “empire of chaos…

…Russia’s challenges lie in developing her already vast territory)…Russia will not attempt to reformat the world in her own image, but neither will she allow anyone to reformat her in their image. Russia will not close herself off from the world, but anyone who tries to close her off from the world will be sure to reap a whirlwind. Neither is Russia willing to act as a savior of the world, as she has in the past…

…Russia does not wish for the chaos to spread, does not want war, and has no intention of starting oneHowever, today Russia sees the outbreak of global war as almost inevitable, is prepared for it, and is continuing to prepare for it. Russia does not war, nor does she fear it…

Russia does not intend to take an active role in thwarting those who are still attempting to construct their New World Order, However, Russia will oppose their efforts if they begin  to impinge on Russia’s key interests. Russia would prefer to stand by and watch them give themselves as many lumps as their poor heads can take. But those who manage to drag Russia into this process, through disregard for her interests, will be taught the true meaning of pain…

…Russia’s will rely not on the elites to set the tone for the future, and these decisions will result from the will of the people…”

RUSSIA IS IN WAR MODE !

The RAF has intercepted Russian military aircraft as they neared UK airspace for the second time  in the past week. This incident follows Norwegian interception of two Russian bombers last Wednesday. The Baltic countries are also witnessing a dramatic increase in Russian military violations of NATO air space in which the Russians appear to be testing their ability to penetrate the NATO’s air defenses.

Even the number of times that Japanese fighter jets have been forced to scramble to intercept Russian military aircraft has more than doubled in the last six months, amid  the escalating diplomatic tensions between Japan and Russia. Russia has even violated American airspace in Alaska with multiple air incursionS designed to test and discover the sophistications of  America’s ability to detect and intercept Russian fighters and nuclear bombers. Coupled with the air incursions, Putin has the Russian economy in war mode. He even has the Russian military prepared to militarily seize the “resource rich” Arctic. Latest news is that Russia deployed S-300 and S-400 air defenses in Syria and Russian MoD warned US-led coalition not to strike Syrian army…

Second Fatima Secret

Second Fatima Secret

Fatima is undoubtedly the most prophetic of modern apparitions. The first and second parts of the “secret”—which are here published in sequence so as to complete the documentation—refer especially to the frightening vision of hell, devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, the Second World War, and finally the prediction of the immense damage that Russia would do to humanity by abandoning the Christian faith and embracing Communist totalitarianism.

In 1917 no one could have imagined all this: the three pastorinhos of Fatima see, listen and remember, and Lucia, the surviving witness, commits it all to paper when ordered to do so by the Bishop of Leiria and with Our Lady’s permission.

For the account of the first two parts of the “secret”, which have already been published and are therefore known, we have chosen the text written by Sister Lucia in the Third Memoir of 31 August 1941; some annotations were added in the Fourth Memoir of 8 December 1941.

Second Fatima Secret - Prophecies and Predictions - The Three Secrets of Fatima - http://www.alamongordo.com

SECOND FATIMA SECRET

We then looked up at Our Lady, who said to us so kindly and so sadly: 

“You have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war is going to end: but if people do not cease offending God, a worse one will break out during the Pontificate of Pius XI. When you see a night illumined by an unknown light, know that this is the great sign given you by God that he is about to punish the world for its crimes, by means of war, famine, and persecutions of the Church and of the Holy Father. To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of reparation on the First Saturdays. If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated. In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she shall be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world”. Read the full article here. (Original copy of the text)

10 Nostradamus Prophecies for 2017 and Beyond !

10 Nostradamus Prophecies for 2017 and Beyond !

Interpreters have translated Nostradamus Quatrains about the end of world. Though time Is not exactly mentioned yet some relate it to the “end of world” in our time. Many experts also relate it to World War III that is believed to be predicted by Nostradamus over 500 years ago. Here are some famous quatrains about the end of time that when you look at present day happenings could be fulfilled any day now …

10 Nostradamus Prophecies For 2017 and Beyond - http://www.alamongordo.com/

Nostradamus Prediction 1

You will see, sooner and later, great changes made, Extreme horrors and vengeances: For as the moon is thus led by its angel, The heavens draw near to the reckoning.

Century 1, Quatrain 56

Great changes are being made ! We have the “Yes We Can” changes of Barack Obama but also the Arab Spring, the great changes in the Muslim world and the great changes that President Donald Trump will make. Also at this time China is building a real super army, Russia is preparing for a world war, NATO is planning to grow their army after President Trump warned them to spend more on military. North Korea is building an ICBM to reach the US Mainland and Iran is back into the picture !!! Do i need to say more ? The heavens draw near to the reckoning, we are close to the end of times than we think.

Nostradamus Prediction 2

Too much the heavens weep for the Androgyne procreation, Near the heavens human blood shed: Because of death too late a great people re-created, Late and soon comes the awaited help.

Century 2, Quatrain 45

Very important prophecy : “Androgyne Procreation” For humans, an androgyne in terms of gender identity is a person who does not fit neatly into the typical masculine and feminine gender roles of their society. They may also use the term ambigender or polygender to describe themselves. Many androgynes identify as being mentally “between” woman and man, or as entirely genderless. They may identify as non-gendered, genderneutral, agendered, between genders, genderqueer, multigendered, intergendered, pangender or gender fluid. This prophecy could point to “Angels” or “Aliens”. The rest of the prophecy could point to Humans OR the Aliens : Blood Shed, Great people Re-Created and the “Awaited Help”. The awaited help could also point to another race of Aliens that want to help humankind. (See Mythology about Aliens that want to destroy humankind and another race of Aliens that protects us – Also see the painting about battles in the air, painting of thousands year old) !

Nostradamus Prediction 3

When the eclipse of the Sun will then be, The monster (divine omen) will be seen in plain daylight: Quite otherwise will one interpret it, High price unguarded: none will have provided for it.

Century 3, Quatrain 34

Connected to the coming AUGUST 21, 2017 SOLAR ECLIPSE in the United States. Again about “Aliens” or ? – There is a solar eclipse and the “Divine Omen” will be seen during daylight. This could point to the moment that people start to see that Vladimir Putin is the Antichrist, we should watch important world events AND world leaders BEFORE and AFTER this important SOLAR ECLIPSE !!! But as the Nostradamus prophecy says we all will interpret it otherwise so nobody knows what danger there is and we will be “unguarded” …

Nostradamus Prediction 4

When the lamp burning with an inextinguishable fire, Will be found in the temple of the Vestals, Infant found fire, water passing through the sieve, Nimes, Toulouse perish [in] water, the market to collapse.

Century 9, Quatrain 9

Just take a look at the last line : The Market To Collapse ! The lamp burning with an inextinguishable fire could point to Tokyo (2020 Summer Olympics). The market could start to collapse in Tokyo. We have to watch China because China has the power to collapse the US Economy. China’s foreign exchange reserves totaled US$3.10 trillion in the first month of 2017, this reserve is much higher than the foreign exchange reserves of any other nation in the world. A potentially serious short-term problem would emerge if China decided to suddenly reduce their liquid U.S. financial assets significantly. Could also point to a new crisis in Italy and the EU !

Nostradamus Prediction 5

Pestilences extinguished, the world becomes smaller, For a long time the lands will be inhabited in peace: People will travel safely through the sky (over) land and wave: Then wars will start anew.

Century 1, Quatrain 63

This Nostradamus prophecy clearly points to the coming of a third world war ! Pestilences extinguished, the world becomes smaller. We have medication and the world became smaller because of airplanes, the Internet, … We had “peace” for a long time, when you look what happened in WWI and WWII this is peace (1945-2017), 72 years of “peace” at the moment. People still travel safe in the air, just look up … but Nostradamus prophesied Wars will start anew, World Wars ! Note : The “World becomes smaller” can also be found in the “Nine Prophecy Sings of the Hopy Indians“, there will be a “Web” around the world just before the end of times – This clearly points to the World Wide Web and other technology !

Nostradamus Prediction 6

The year the great seventh number is accomplished, Appearing at the time of the great games of slaughter: Not far from the age of the great millennium, When the dead will come out of their graves.

Century 10, Quatrain 74

This prophecy indicates that it will happen not far from the great millennium (Pointing to 2001 and beyond), the great seventh number is accomplished could point to the the year we live in at this time: 2017 ! When you think about it the world has changed since the 9/11 atttacks in 2001 and is still changing as a result of that attack. And as Mikhail Gorbachev said : We are closer to a third world war then ever before in history.

Nostradamus Prediction 7

Northern wind will cause the siege to be raised, Over the walls to throw ashes, lime chalk and dust, Through rain afterwards, which will do them much harm, Meanest assistance against their frontier.

Century 9, Quatrain 99

Seems that Nostradamus prophesied that Russia join the Syrian war : Northern wind (Russia) will cause the siege to be raised. Over “The Walls” (pointing to the former Berlin Wall) to trow ashes, lime chalk and dust … Also the Black Sea will be very important during this conflict, Nostradamus mentioned the Black Sea several times in his Quatrains ! Check out : The Latest News about The Black Sea !

Nostradamus Prediction 8

The gods will make it appear to the humans, That they will be the authors of a great conflict: Sword and lance before heaven is observed as serene, So that on the left hand there will be great affliction.

Century 1, Quatrain 91

This quatrain is also translated as “The Gods will show themselves to the Humans”, this is also what several other prophets predict : The Gods will return. Our “Gods” are Aliens that build and created us, we look just like them (Bible Code). They are the authors of a great conflict, here comes the Battle of Armageddon : Humans against Aliens … you think this is weird ? It’s not that weird, according the bible it would happen around Israel … They talk about an army of 200 million (Aliens ?) … If Aliens return to earth they will land in the area of Israel … Why ? Well just read the Bible and the Quaran and imagine “Jesus” and “Muhammed” as Aliens. They will return where they left ! When “Aliens” want to return and they are smart, they know we humans are hostile … The best thing is to first let us fight a World War III and then come back, earth’s army’s will be weak…

Nostradamus Prediction 9

The trembling of the earth at Mortara, The tin islands of St. George half sunk; Drowsy with peace, war will arise, At Easter in the temple abysses opened.

Century 9, Quatrain 31

The city of Mortara can be found in Italy so this prophecy could point to EarthQuakes around Italy or Mortar(a) are weapons that make the Earth tremble. Saint George (c. 275/281 – 23 April 303) was, according to tradition, a Roman soldier from Syria Palaestina and a soldier in the Guard of Diocletian, who is venerated as a Christian martyr. In hagiography Saint George is one of the most venerated saints in the Catholic (Western and Eastern Rites), Anglican, Eastern Orthodox, and the Oriental Orthodox churches. He is immortalized in the tale of Saint George and the Dragon (Check out the Nostradamus Dragon from The Lost Book of Nostradamus) and is one of the 14 Holy Helpers. His memorial is celebrated on 23 April, and he is regarded as one of the most prominent military saints ! So this line of prophecy could be about the Syrian Conflict that becomes bigger, also the Dragon in the Sky Nostradamus prophecy can be found here. Drowsy peace, war will arise : The Third World War could start in Syria, just as Edgar Cayce predicted : He stated that “IF” there will be a World War III it will start in the Area of (and now think about the Arab Spring) : Tunis, Egypt, Lybia and Damascus (He named Damascus last, the area they are fighting at this very moment !). Now that we know this prophecy has something to do with the Syrian conflict, At Easter in the Temple Abysses opened this prophecy could point to the Göbekli Tepe : The Göbekli Tepe is a Neolithic hilltop sanctuary erected at the top of a mountain ridge in the Southeastern Anatolia Region of Turkey at the border with Syria, some 15 kilometers or 9 miles northeast of the town of Şanlıurfa (formerly Urfa / Edessa). It is the oldest known human-made religious structure. The site was most likely erected by hunter-gatherers in the 10th millennium BCE and has been under excavation since 1994 by German and Turkish archaeologists. Together with Nevalı Çori, it has revolutionized understanding of the Eurasian Neolithic.

Nostradamus Prediction 10

For forty years the rainbow will not appear; For forty years it will be seen every day: The arid earth will grow more dry, And great floods when it will be seen.

Century 1, Quatrain 17

This quatrain could point to The sinking of the Rainbow Warrior, codenamed Opération Satanique, was a bombing operation by the “action” branch of the French foreign intelligence services, the Direction générale de la sécurité extérieure, carried out on 10 July 1985. During the 40 years of the Rainbow (1985-2025) the earth will grow more dry and great floods will happen. The change of our climate is also found in the prophecies of Edgar Cayce : about the shifting of the earths poles/axis and in Native American Prophecy !!!

All of these quatrains directly or indirectly suggest that if world ever came to end it would be due to human-being. The continuous and constant harm to nature from mankind may lead to unusual natural disasters. The world today is full of hate and every other country is developing nuclear weapons just adding more destructive weapons. If ever these weapons came in wrong hands and used then surely world would come to en end. We are developing weapons for our own destructions, how long do you think we will survive?

Nostradamus and Donald Trump

Nostradamus and Donald Trump

Before we start, some people claim that Donald Trump is the Third AntichristI do not believe that, when you read the prophecies the Antichrist will fulfill, almost none of them connect to Donald Trump. For me, if he is a human … Vladimir Putin is still the Number 1 Antichrist !

These passages from Nostradamus are proof that he ‘predicted’ a Trump victory in 2016, apparently.

Michel de Nostradame, (latinised to: Nostradamus) was a French ‘seer’ who died in 1566 and wrote over a thousand predictions about the coming centuries, contained in Les Propheties. He wrote these as four line poems, organised into ‘quatrains’. Les Propheties was published as 10 volumes, each referred to as a ‘century‘.

The seer has been credited with predicting World War Two and the 11 September Attacks on New York City. Some believe that Century III, quatrain 81 refers to the 2016 presidential election.

CENTURY III, QUATRAIN 81
The great shameless, audacious bawler,
He will be elected governor of the army:
The boldness of his contention,
The bridge broken, the city faint from fear.

That sounds about right. Especially given that on 20 January 2017, Trump became President and the Commander-in-Chief. Other predictions from Nostradamus have also been related to the 2016 US presidential election.

Nostradamus Prophecies About President Donald Trump - http://www.alamongordo.com

CENTURY VIII, QUATRAIN 15
The masculine woman will exert herself to the north
She will annoy nearly all of Europe and the rest of the world.
Two failures will put her in such an imbalance
That both life and death will strengthen Eastern Europe

The ‘masculine woman’ could be Hillary Clinton, and the stronger Eastern Europe is Russia. So this Quatrain is talking about the things happened in 2016, the months before the election of Donald Trump.

CENTURY VIII, QUATRAIN 20
The false message about the rigged election
to run through the city stopping the broken pact;
voices bought, chapel stained with blood,
the empire contracted to another one.

The false message about the rigged election could point to two things: Before the election Donald Trump talked about the rigged election of Hillary Clinton and the rigged polls from the media (he was correct about that). Or it could point to the so-called “hacking” from Russia to help Trump win the elections. The empire contracted to another one can also point to two things : It could mean that the “Elite” has no more control because Trump is elected and the empire (United States) is in the hands of the simple people with Trump as president. It could also be that because of the help from Russia (hacking, etc) Trump got elected and the empire is now in the hands of Russia.

CENTURY I, QUATRAIN 57
The trumpet shakes with great discord.
An agreement broken: lifting the face to heaven:
the bloody mouth will swim with blood;
the face anointed with milk and honey lies on the ground.

From day 1 of his presidency Donald Trump started to make changes. He broke the TTP agreement and others will follow : NAFTA, The Iran Deal, ObamaCare, etc … Great discord could point to a divided nation.

Trump Nostradamus The Trumpet Revelation Alamongordo Prophecies 2017 2018 - http://www.alamongordo.com

CENTURY III, QUATRAIN 50
The republic of the great city
Will not want to consent to the great severity:
King summoned by trumpet to go out,
The ladder at the wall, the city will repent.

The Republic of the great city, pointing to the United States and the great city of New York. Summoned by Trumpet, ordered by Trump, The ladder at the wall … pointing to the “Mexican Wall” ?

CENTURY X, QUATRAIN 76
The great Senate will ordain the triumph
For one who afterwards will be vanquished, driven out:
At the sound of the trumpet of his adherents there will be
Put up for sale their possessions, enemies expelled.

This could point to the future, the impeachment of Donald Trump, vanquished and driven out. But it could also point to illegal immigrants vanquished and driven out at the sound of the Trumpet, when President Trump gives the order. The second line could also point to a “one term president”.

CENTURY I, QUATRAIN 40
The false trumpet concealing madness
will cause Byzantium to change its laws.
From Egypt there will go forth a man who wants
the edict withdrawn, changing money and standards.

The False Trumpet could point to Donald Trump but could also point to a worldleader that want to look like Trump or someone within the Trump government will cause Byzantium (Could point to a part of Europe, Ukraine but most likely to Turkey or another middle east nation) to change it’s laws. Changing Laws could also point to laws within the United States. Changing laws could also point to Turkey changing sides, from NATO to Russia. Changing Money & Standards could point to Trump’s slogan “America First”.

The Donald Trump Prophecies of Nostradamus - http://www.alamongordo.com

At the end, Donald Trump will be a “normal” president. He will not start World War III or something like that … Putin will start world war III 🙂

The DoomsDay Clock

The Doomsday Clock Just Moved Closer To Midnight !

The Doomsday Clock has rung in 2017, and it is two-and-a-half minutes to midnight.

The symbolic timepiece – where midnight represents our species’ destruction through a global catastrophe – has been ticking since 1947. This year, for the first time, the clock was moved forwards 30 seconds rather than back or forwards in minutes.

Doomsday Clock 2017 - http://Alamongordo.Com

The reasons cited for its advancement from 2016’s time of 23:57 are painfully obvious to anyone that’s even briefly taken a glance at the news. The rise of nationalism, particularly in Europe and the US, is singled out, as is almost every aspect of the Trumpocalypse we now face ourselves with.

From his nuclear arms race sabre rattling with an increasingly aggressive Russia to his administration’s profound rejection of the science of climate change, it’s clear that the new President of the United States had a huge influence over the decision to move the clock closer to midnight.

“In the wake of the landmark Paris climate accord, the nations of the world have taken some actions to combat climate change, and global carbon dioxide emissions were essentially flat in 2016, compared to the previous year,” the official statement reads. “Still, they have not yet started to decrease; it is two and a half minutes to midnight the world continues to warm.”

“This already-threatening world situation was the backdrop for a rise in strident nationalism worldwide in 2016, including in a US presidential campaign during which the eventual victor, Donald Trump, made disturbing comments about the use and proliferation of nuclear weapons and expressed disbelief in the overwhelming scientific consensus on climate change.”

Set up by the members of The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists in response to the proliferation of nuclear weapons, the Doomsday Clock has recently come to take into account other threats – notably, climate change, which officially was taken into consideration in 2007.

DoomsDay 2017 - 2018 - http://www.alamongordo.com

Since it began, the furthest it has been from midnight was in 1991, just as the Berlin Wall fell, the Soviet Union collapsed, and the Cold War came to an end. Back then, it was a full 17 minutes away.

The closest it has ever been was back in 1953, when an uprising in occupied East Germany was crushed by Russian troops, and nuclear weapons were being manufactured – and tested – by world powers at a breakneck speed. Back then, it was two minutes to midnight.

As a point of comparison, we are closer to midnight now than we were back in 1984, when the nuclear arms race picked up speed, US cruise missiles were deployed in Europe, Russian forces had invaded Afghanistan (whose rebel fighters were ultimately funded by the US), and Reagan had recently declared the Soviet Union to be an “evil empire”.

Russian Television Warns of Nuclear War Amid US Tensions !

Russian Television Warns of Nuclear War Amid US Tensions !

With diplomatic relations between Moscow and Washington at their lowest point since the Cold War, turning on Russian television can be an alarming experience. For the past month, Russian media outlets have been punctuated with reports asking people whether they are ready for nuclear war.

US Russia Nuclear War 2017-2018 - http://Alamongordo.COM

“If it should one day happen, every one of you should know where the nearest bomb shelter is. It’s best to find out now,” according to one particularly fevered report on the Russian state-owned channel, NTV.

Russia’s main current affairs show, hosted by a presenter known by critics as the country’s propagandist-in-chief, recently spent two hours warning that Russia would defend itself with nuclear arms. “We’ve had it with American abuse over Syria,” the show’s host, Evgeny Kiselyov, told his audience. “Impudent behavior,” from the U.S. towards Russia, he said, can now take on “nuclear dimensions.”

Anti-Americanism is not rare on Russian state news, nor is an inclination for the apocalyptic. But more notable than the intensity of the warnings has been how Russian government ministries have joined in the alarms in recent weeks. Since September, Russia has conducted a nationwide civil defense drill, purportedly involving 40 million people, preparing them for catastrophes — among them nuclear fallout. Russia’s military announced who would run the country in the event of war and ran an exercise simulating that in the south.

Even more bluntly, Russia announced this week it was moving nuclear-capable ballistic missiles into its Northern European enclave, Kaliningrad, putting them within striking distance of Western capitals. In the same week, Russia test-fired 3 intercontinental ballistic missiles.

Such moves have further raised the temperature with the West, already exceptionally high since the U.S. publicly accused Moscow of trying to interfere in its presidential elections and efforts by the two countries to reach a cease-fire deal terrorists in Syria, collapsed amid mutual recrimination and the renewal of ferocious airstrikes by Russian jets on the besieged city of Aleppo.

But the blood-curdling statements and military posturing, however, are very far from heralding imminent war, analysts said. “It’s ridiculous,” said Aleksander Baunov, an analyst at the Carnegie Moscow Center. “It’s not preparation for war.”

Like other Russia observers, he said the atomic-fueled reports and exercises may have several purposes, but none of them were to prepare the populace for major conflict. The nuclear threats, while frightening, reflected an sense in Russia that they could be made without real fear of being taken sincerely.

“The ease with which people in this country use the nuclear threat in their aggressive rhetoric is truly amazing and of course alarming,” Maria Lipman, a veteran Russian analyst and editor-in-chief of Counterpoint journal.

That relative unconcern is perhaps reflected in that the war talk does not appear to have much traction among Russians. What’s more Baunov said, anti-Americanism not especially high among ordinary people currently, limited he said to official discourse.

That discourse, rather than heralding war, Baunov said, was meant to deter Western countries from intervening in Syria and in particular perhaps was meant to prevent the U.S. from responding too strongly to suspected Russian interference in the U.S. elections. Moscow, he said, is trying to set the field ahead of an incoming U.S. president, whoever wins.

“They want to touch bottom and then to try to go up,” he said. “Any responsible politician … if you are responsible and experienced, it cannot start with further downgrading already bad relations, if they are already at bottom.”

The fevered rhetoric on television and pointed deployments of nuclear launch vehicles recalled the height of the Ukraine crisis in 2014, when Russia too sought to guarantee against Western intervention and buttress support for its actions at home. This time, the chances of a real military confrontation between Russia and the U.S. have risen dramatically since Washington indicated it was considering launching airstrikes against the forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to halt his brutal bombardment of Aleppo and push Moscow and Assad back to the negotiating table. Russia’s Defense Ministry has bluntly warned the U.S. not to intervene, threatening to shoot down any aircraft targeting Assad’s forces.

US-NATO Russia Nuclear War in 2017-2018 - http://www.alamongordo.com

But still few expect the Obama administration to approve such an intervention, which would abandon years of policy avoiding direct military intervention against Assad, at a moment when it also risked provoking an armed clash with Russia.

Lipman warned the two countries’ perilously diverging goals in Syria and an escalating logic in their exchanges, could see that confrontation spiral unpredictably out of control. “I think this is unprecedented,” she said. “One reckless move could turn what until know has still been a Syrian conflict into something I don’t even want to think about.”

Beyond geopolitical clashes, though, there may also be a more prosaic reason for the war talk — Russia’s military budget is currently up for consideration at a time when the economy is in trouble, weighed down by low oil prices and Western sanctions over the Kremlin’s foreign military ventures.

“The more tension the better for the Russian General Staff,” Pavel Felgenhauer, a military analyst in Moscow, said. “Tensions are going to rise and rise and rise.”

“The good news is no one really wants a war,” he added. “But it’s going to be a good show.”

For ordinary Russians it appeared an overly familiar show. Though often describing themselves as outraged by U.S. behavior in Syria, most seemed inured to the suggestions of possible nuclear doom, taking a more realistic view of the television warnings. Photos appeared on social media from a suburban apartment block where pranksters or enterprising fraudsters had pinned fliers to a stairwell asking residents to begin donating cash for the construction of a local bomb shelter.

“Hurry, places are limited,” the fliers read.

Threats and Rising Tensions: Russia’s Military Options against US

Threats and Rising Tensions: Russia’s Military Options against a US Attack on Syria
The tensions between Russia and the USA have reached an unprecedented level. I fully agree with the participants of this CrossTalk show – the situation is even worse and more dangerous than during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Both sides are now going to the so-called “Plan B”which, simply put, stand for, at best, no negotiations and, at worst, a war between Russia and the USA.
Nuclear flag US Russia War - http://www.alamongordo.com

The key thing to understand in the Russian stance in this, an other, recent conflicts with the USA is that Russia is still much weaker than the USA and that she therefore does not want war. That does not, however, mean that she is not actively preparing for war. In fact, she very much and actively does. All this means is that should a conflict occur, Russia you try, as best can be, to keep it as limited as possible.

In theory, these are, very roughly, the possible levels of confrontation:

  1. A military standoff à la Berlin in 1961. One could argue that this is what is already taking place right now, albeit in a more long-distance and less visible way.
  2. A single military incident, such as what happened recently when Turkey shot down a Russian SU-24 and Russia chose not to retaliate.
  3. A series of localized clashes similar to what is currently happening between India and Pakistan.
  4. A conflict limited to the Syrian theater of war (say like the war between the UK and Argentina over the Malvinas Islands).
  5. A regional or global military confrontation between the USA and Russia.
  6. A full scale thermonuclear war between the USA and Russia

During my years as a student of military strategy I have participated in many exercises on escalation and de-escalation and I can attest that while it is very easy to come up with escalatory scenarios, I have yet to see a credible scenario for de-escalation. What is possible, however, is the so-called “horizontal escalation” or “asymmetrical escalation” in which one side choses not to up the ante or directly escalate, but instead choses a different target for retaliation, not necessarily a more valuable one, just a different one on the same level of conceptual importance (in the USA Joshua M. Epsteinand Spencer D. Bakich did most of the groundbreaking work on this topic).

The main reason why we can expect the Kremlin to try to find asymmetrical options to respond to a US attack is that in the Syrian context Russia is hopelessly outgunned by the US/NATO, at least in quantitative terms. The logical solutions for the Russians is to use their qualitative advantage or to seek “horizontal targets” as possible retaliatory options. This week, something very interesting and highly uncharacteristic happened: Major General Igor Konashenkov, the Chief of the Directorate of Media service and Information of the Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation, openly mentioned one such option. Here is what he said:

“As for Kirby’s threats about possible Russian aircraft losses and the sending of Russian servicemen back to Russia in body bags, I would say that we know exactly where and how many “unofficial specialists” operate in Syria and in the Aleppo province and we know that they are involved in the operational planning and that they supervise the operations of the militants. Of course, one can continue to insist that they are unsuccessfully involved in trying to separate the al-Nusra terrorists from the “opposition” forces. But if somebody tries to implement these threats, it is by no means certain that these militants will have to time to get the hell out of there.”

Nice, no? Konashenkov appears to be threatening the “militants” but he is sure to mention that there are plenty of “unofficial specialists” amongst these militants and that Russia knows exactly where they are and how many of them there are. Of course, officially, Obama has declared that there are a few hundred such US special advisors in Syria. A well-informed Russian source suggests that there are up to 5’000 foreign ‘advisors’ to the Takfiris including about 4’000 Americans. I suppose that the truth is somewhere between these two figures.

So the Russian threat is simple: you attack us and we will attack US forces in Syria. Of course, Russia will vehemently deny targeting US servicemen and insist that the strike was only against terrorists, but both sides understand what is happening here. Interestingly, just last week the Iranian Fars news agency reported that such a Russian attack had already happened:

30 Israeli, Foreign Intelligence Officers Killed in Russia’s Caliber Missile Attack in Aleppo:“The Russian warships fired three Caliber missiles at the foreign officers’ coordination operations room in Dar Ezza region in the Western part of Aleppo near Sam’an mountain, killing 30 Israeli and western officers,” the Arabic-language service of Russia’s Sputniknews agency quoted battlefield source in Aleppo as saying on Wednesday. The operations room was located in the Western part of Aleppo province in the middle of sky-high Sam’an mountain and old caves. The region is deep into a chain of mountains. Several US, Turkish, Saudi, Qatari and British officers were also killed along with the Israeli officers. The foreign officers who were killed in the Aleppo operations room were directing the terrorists’ attacks in Aleppo and Idlib.”

Whether this really happened or whether the Russians are leaking such stories to indicate that this could happen, the fact remains that US forces in Syria could become an obvious target for Russian retaliation, whether by cruise missile, gravity bombs or direct action operation by Russian special forces. The US also has several covert military installations in Syria, including at least one airfield with V-22 Osprey multi-mission tiltrotor aircraft.

Another interesting recent development has been the Fox News report that Russians are deploying S-300V (aka “SA-23 Gladiator anti-missile and anti-aircraft system”) in Syria. Check out this excellent article for a detailed discussion of the capabilities of this missile system. I will summarize it by saying that the S-300V can engage ballistic missiles, cruise missiles, very low RCS (“stealth”) aircraft and AWACS aircraft. This is an Army/Army Corps -level air defense system, well capable of defending most of the Syrian airspace, but also reach well into Turkey, Cyprus, the eastern Mediterranean and Lebanon.

The powerful radars of this system could not only detect and engage US aircraft (including “stealth”) at a long distance, but they could also provide a tremendous help for the few Russian air superiority fighters by giving them a clear pictures of the skies and enemy aircraft by using encrypted datalinks. Finally, US air doctrine is extremely dependent on the use of AWACS aircraft to guide and support US fighters. The S-300V will forces US/NATO AWACS to operate at a most uncomfortable distance. Between the longer-range radars of the Russian Sukhois, the radars on the Russian cruisers off the Syrian coast, and the S-300 and S-300V radars on the ground, the Russians will have a much better situational awareness than their US counterparts.

It appears that the Russians are trying hard to compensate for their numerical inferiority by deploying high-end systems for which the US has no real equivalent or good counter-measures.

There are basically two options of deterrence: denial, when you prevent your enemy from hitting his targets and retaliation, when you make the costs of an enemy attack unacceptably high for him. The Russians appear to be pursuing both tracks at the same time. We can thus summarize the Russian approach as such

  1. Delay a confrontation as much as possible (buy time).
  2. Try to keep any confrontation at the lowest possible escalatory level.
  3. If possible, reply with asymmetrical/horizontal escalations.
  4. Rather then “prevail” against the US/NATO – make the costs of attack too high.
  5. Try to put pressure on US “allies” in order to create tensions inside the Empire.
  6. Try to paralyze the USA on a political level by making the political costs of an attack too high-end.
  7. Try to gradually create the conditions on the ground (Aleppo) to make a US attack futile

To those raised on Hollywood movies and who still watch TV, this kind of strategy will elicit only frustration and condemnation. There are millions of armchair strategists who are sure that they could do a much better job than Putin to counter the US Empire. These folks have now been telling us for *years* that Putin “sold out” the Syrians (and the Novorussians) and that the Russians ought to do X, Y and Z to defeat the AngloZionist Empire. The good news is that none of these armchair strategists sit in the Kremlin and that the Russians have stuck to their strategy over the past years, one day at a time, even when criticized by those who want quick and “easy” solutions. But the main good news is that the Russian strategy is working. Not only is the Nazi-occupied Ukraine quite literally falling apart, but the US has basically run out of options in Syria (see this excellent analysis by my friend Alexander Mercouris in the Duran).

The only remaining logical steps left for the USA in Syria is to accept Russia’s terms or leave. The problem is that I am not at all convinced that the Neocons, who run the White House, Congress and the US corporate media, are “rational” at all. This is why the Russians employed so many delaying tactics and why they have acted with such utmost caution: they are dealing with professional incompetent ideologues who simply do not play by the unwritten but clear rules of civilized international relations. This is what makes the current crisis so much worse than even the Cuban Missile Crisis: one superpower has clearly gone insane.

Are the Americans crazy enough to risk WWIII over Aleppo?

Maybe, maybe not. But what if we rephrase that question and ask

Are the Americans crazy enough to risk WWIII to maintain their status as the “world’s indispensable nation”, the “leader of the free world”, the “city on the hill” and all the rest of this imperialistic nonsense?

Here I would submit that yes, they potentially are.

After all, the Neocons are correct when they sense that if Russia gets away with openly defying and defeating the USA in Syria, nobody will take the AngloZionists very seriously any more.

How do you think the Neocons think when they see the President of the Philippines publicly calling Obama a “son of a whore” and then tells the EU to go and “f*ck itself”?

Of course, the Neocons can still find some solace in the abject subservience of the European political elites, but still – they know that he writing is on the wall and that their Empire is rapidly crumbling, not only in Syria, the Ukraine or Asia, but even inside the USA. The biggest danger here is that the Neocons might try to rally the nation around the flag, either by staging yet another false flag or by triggering a real international crisis.

At this point in time all we can do is wait and hope that there is enough resistance inside the US government to prevent a US attack on Syria before the next Administration comes in. And while I am no supporter of Trump, I would agree that Hillary and her evil cabal of russophobic Neocons is so bad that Trump does give me some hope, at least in comparison to Hillary.

So if Trump wins, then Russia’s strategy will be basically justified. Once Trump is on the White House, there is at least the possibility of a comprehensive redefinition of US-Russian relations which would, of course, begin with a de-escalation in Syria: while Obama/Hillary categorically refuse to get rid of Daesh (by that I mean al-Nusra, al-Qaeda, and all their various denominations), Trump appears to be determined to seriously fight them, even if that means that Assad stays in power. There is most definitely a basis for dialog here. If Hillary comes in, then the Russians will have to make an absolutely crucial call: how important is Syria in the context of their goal to re-sovereignize Russia and to bring down the AngloZionist Empire? Another way of formulating the same question is “would Russia prefer a confrontation with the Empire in Syria or in the Ukraine?”.

One way to gauge the mood in Russia is to look at the language of a recent law proposed by President Putin and adopted by the Duma which dealt with the issue of the Russia-US Plutonium Management and Disposition Agreement (PMDA) which, yet again, saw the US yet again fail to deliver on their obligations and which Russia has now suspended. What is interesting, is the language chosen by the Russians to list the conditions under which they would resume their participation in this agreement and, basically, agree to resume any kind of arms negotiations:

  1. A reduction of military infrastructure and the number of the US troops stationed on the territory of NATO member states that joined the alliance after September 1, 2000, to the levels at which they were when the original agreement first entered into force.
  2. The abandonment of the hostile policy of the US towards Russia, which should be carried out with the abolition of the Magnitsky Act of 2012 and the conditions of the Ukraine Freedom Support Act of 2014, which were directed against Russia.
  3. The abolition of all sanctions imposed by the US on certain subjects of the Russian Federation, Russian individuals and legal entities.
  4. The compensation for all the damages suffered by Russia as a result of the imposition of sanctions.
  5. The US is also required to submit a clear plan for irreversible plutonium disposition covered by the PMDA.

Now the Russians are not delusional. They know full well that the USA will never accept such terms. So what is this really all about? It is a diplomatic but unambiguous way to tell the USA the exact same thing which Philippine President Duterte (and Victoria Nuland) told the EU.

The Americans better start paying attention.

What does the Bible say about Russia ?

Psalm 2:1-12

Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against his Anointed, saying, “Let us burst their bonds apart and cast away their cords from us.” He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord holds them in derision. Then he will speak to them in his wrath, and terrify them in his fury, saying, …

Genesis 10:3

The sons of Gomer: Ashkenaz, Riphath, and Togarmah.

Genesis 10:2

The sons of Japheth: Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras.

Jeremiah 51:27

“Set up a standard on the earth; blow the trumpet among the nations; prepare the nations for war against her; summon against her the kingdoms, Ararat, Minni, and Ashkenaz; appoint a marshal against her; bring up horses like bristling locusts.

FSB presses to store secret data in Russia

FSB presses intl audit majors to store data in Russia, step up secrecy – report !

The may deprive the ‘big four’ audit companies of their licenses to work with Russian state secrets if they refuse to relocate data servers to Russia and limit access to them from abroad, a popular business daily reports.

FSB Secret Service former KGB Secret Service Russia - http://www.alamongordo.comUnnamed sources in two of the ‘big four’ companies (Deloitte, EY, PwC and KPMG) have told the Vedomosti newspaper that the FSB had revoked the license for working with state secrets from the Russian company K-konfident that, in turn, provided the services to KPMG. There was no official confirmation of this report from either side, but it led to further questioning and a source “close to the FSB” told Vedomosti that soon all four audit majors could lose their licenses for working with Russian state secrets.

According to the source, the security service seeks to change the auditors’ approach to data storage – Russia wants all data servers with information related to state secrets moved on Russian territory and they want the international companies to restrict the access to this data from their foreign branches and headquarters.

The source added that the Russian Federal Security Agency had been dissatisfied with the auditors’ handling of sensitive data for quite a long time, but the recently-passed laws give additional leverage to the security agents and it is likely that this time they will succeed.

FSB SECRET DATA

Russian law on state secrets lists as such all information relating to the national defense and strategic industries, including such major sectors of the economy as weapons manufacture and nuclear energy. Especially important inventions and science breakthroughs are also listed as state secrets and so is all information about the discovered supplies and the production volume of strategic mineral resources.

The law also lists as classified the information on state financial policies towards foreign nations as well as any information on Russia’s financial sector if its early publication might harm national interests.

Sources in the auditing companies claimed that the new rules can give law enforcers an effective means of pressuring the auditors by impounding the data servers. They added that data storage was more expensive in Russia than abroad. However, the KPMG company told Vedomosti that it had already moved all data servers inside Russian borders and therefore expected no problems with prolongation of their licenses.

The newest Russian law, passed by the parliament in early July and coming into force on September 1, orders all internet companies collecting personal information from Russian citizens are obliged to store that data inside the country. The sponsors of the motion believe it is in tune with the current European policy of trying to legally protect online personal data.

The deputy chairman of the State Duma Committee on Information Policy, Leonid Levin, said the Russian law serves goals similar to those of the recent decision by European Court of Justice, which endorsed the so-called ‘right to be forgotten’, obliging Google to remove upon request links to personal data.
