It's amusing how people view this steadily escalating US imperialist aggression in the ME like some huge video game.

Sooner or later it's going to get American cities nuked.  Russia, China, and SCO in general (the largest combined nuclear arsenal on the planet) have just about had enough of US imperialism in the ME.

I was thinking roughly the same thing!  It stunned me last night how we have all grown so accustomed to discussing the impending crises as though we were talking about the weather.  Not that we aren't all disturbed about such things, but we're almost not shocked anymore by horrific news.  Very sad....

Russia has a 57 megaton hydrogen bomb.

It can take out the entire Dallas - Fort Worth metroplex ...70 miles across ...and 20 miles beyond.

 ...and they've had it a long time. 

Who knows, maybe it's 100 megaton now.

The original design WAS 100 megaton.  They scaled it back to 50 megaton so the airplane dropping it wouldn't be vaporized.

By comparison, the Hiroshima bomb was .015 megaton, Nagasaki was .020 megaton.

You WOULD pick Dallas....I live 90 miles east of there!  That really puts things in perspective...

The missile shield encircling Russia is really pissing them off.  And we have managed to piss off China recently, too, with our new presence in AUS.

It's almost like TPTB are just salivating and rubbing their palms together in morbid anticipation of starting a war....they don't seem to care that it could/would be a thermonuclear one.

After all, they've got their underground bases, and it would further their goal of depopulation quite efficiently.

My stomach is churning as I type this.  Do you see the conflict coming to our shores?  I don't want to admit that possibility....however, anything is possible now.

If it's 100 megaton now (very likely), and they dropped it over downtown Dallas, the mushroom cloud would be 60 miles across, everything out to Terrel would be turned to glass and ash, Canton would be obliterated, Tyler would be heavily damaged and people would get 3rd degree burns (charred flesh).

...and the airplane dropping it would be vaporized.

So they wouldn't drop it from an airplane. They'd send it over on an ICBM ...and they have the best ICBMs on the planet.

Very reassuring....

On a positive note, I wouldn't have to worry about whether or not to cash out my 401k and suffer the penalties!

I hope they don't choose Dallas...it would seem to me to be an outlier....but that doesn't factor in that "W" lives there....that would be a huge incentive...

I live in Jordan. I couldn't tell you if "new" US forces are ammassing on the Syria border given that the USA already has some major bases in Jordan. What I can tell you first hand is that last month I was working in the south of Jordan between Wadi Rum and Aqaba and over three days I have seen columns of British vehicles making their way north. The vehicles were mostly British in manufacuture but not all had British licence plates.

Admittedly, Jordan often carries out joint maneuvres with the Brits, but this time around, the number and the type of vehicles struck me as odd. I am not a military person and am not well versed in the type of vehicles and what they are used for but there were a whole bunch of APCs and some vehicles that could have been demining bulldozers.

I turned on the BBC World Service to hear about the disintegration of Europe and they went batshit crazy on Syria, some report about how many have been killed, etc. for like ten minutes.  I had to turn it off for wasting my time. 

Seems a little like they are trying to whip up a frenzy or what passes for one in today's jaded world....meh.

Just following the same "formula" as Egypt and Libya.  Sooo predictable!

I literally don't trust Western media one bit anymore after reading a book about the Tavistock Institute and their propaganda tactics...thank God for alternative news...wonder how much longer we will have access to it.

the price to access the captured drone....ha ha ha ha......if this is true, i think it is funny in a way.  the russians who have been dragging their feet about giving the iranians  the anti aircraft system now must put up or shut up and the chinks..........well the chinks have to put something in the cup too before they can see it.........now this is the price  for examining the aircraft, not for taking it...........ha ha ha .........

yeah, as Smedley Butler suggested (paraphrased) everyone from president of the US down to dogcatcher would be paid as the lowly private that is putting his life on the line. This would end war.

Take the profit out of war and war will end.

I can confirm that there are NO US TROOPS massing on the border in Jordan.  There are NO FEMA camps that are going to hold thousands of Americans. That is all.

This is getting interesting. Not that I'm all that interested in politics or diplomacy, but it is interesting to watch the Wars of Corporate Conquest. In 1867, they began the Reconstruction of the United States. Now, they're reconstructing the rest of the world.

I think that would be unlikely, imo. Unless the Pentagon is crazy enough to go head-to-head with a Russian carrier group (Being sent specifically to provide umbrella protection over Syria and deploying this month). Possible, but I think it would bat-shit arse bleeding crazy to start a shooting war in the Med. Doesn't mean it won't happen, obviously, since we're talking about the USA. I do remember asking myself, "Nobody could be that crazy surely?", shortly before the Iraq invasion. 

 

No doubt something is going on. There are reports of sniper squads in Syria captured with M40A3 rifles, and Putin accusing Hilary Clinton of instigating protests in Moskow.

It's becoming pretty obvious that the protests in Russia are US/West driven...good story on who is orchestrating the protests, and their ties to US State Dept NGO's, Ford Foundation, and Soros groups:

That sounds about right, and steelrules  comment below makes sense about war as a diversion. The thing is, if a real shooting war against a Russian carrier force kicks off in the Med, it's going to escalate hard and fast ending in the only way it can end: Nuclear armageddon. If TPTB calculates that the Russians will pussy out, and a nice controlled little war against people who are 50yrs behind the arms race can be played out as a diversion and a grab for oil land, then I think they would be mistaken. Russia has clearly drawn a line in the sand, and I doubt they will be willing to budge this time when their own country is at the mercy of the faux-populist uprising orchestrated from the outside. 

The Russians are great chess players, and if I were Putin I would be seriously considering an all out pre-emptive strike against the USA right now in expectation of an attack against his carrier force. It's all conjecture right now, but interesting in a horrible, fatalistic way.

Next is war on the American people.

Remember S.1867 that strips all American citizens of due process?

Well guess what, the section that precluded that law to apply to American citizen was stripped from the bill at the request of OBAMA.

Next war? You mean it hasn't already started? I better stock up on the lube for when it does start. Better start streching too, my hammies are a little too tight to grab my ankles.

About the video... I find it funny that they'll make a video with this info and then ask people to make an appeal to their Congressman and White House. Makes about as much sense as if PETA made a video of cows being butchered and showed it to other cows and then axed the cows watching the video to contact their butcher so that they might not be butchered. The W.H. and Congress doesn't give a turd what their cows (you) say.

I've been wondering if this isn't really about the mideast at all. Consider that even Germany seems to be making overtures toward Russia. Could it be that the US feels this is the last chance it will have to set Russia and China back before they become too powerful? They would get sucked into this war and this could lead to an exchange of nukes between the US and China/Russia. To some extent, our posture in this part of the world has always been frustrating, hobbling, or containing the Russians and the Chinese. If those countries do become ascendant, it could very well be curtains for US control of the world.

Hey, maybe even Israel is our puppet and does our bidding. Is that possible?
