Russian Senator Warns UK "Risks Being Wiped Off The Face Of The Earth"

Tyler Durden's picture

It would appear that British defense minister Michael Fallon's comments that The UK could launch a preemptive nuclear strike "in the most extreme circumstances," was not an implicit threat that the deputy head of the Russian Federation Council’s Committee for Defense and Security took lightly.

In a terse Facebook posted response, Frants Klintsevich raged:

"I think that the statement by the minister of defence of Britain's Michael Fallon deserves a harsh response, and I'm not afraid to push him over the edge.

 

At best this statement should be seen as a certain element of psychological warfare, which looks especially revolting in this context.

 

There is a quite natural question then: what country could be primitively targeted by the UK?

 

If against nuclear power, the United Kingdom, which doesn't have the greatest of territories, will literally be erased from the face of the earth with a retaliatory strike.

 

But if it is targeting a non-nuclear power, this will remind of the US nuclear attack on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

 

But that time has long passed, as has the time of the former greatness of the British empire."

As RT reports, Klintsevich's comment comes after Fallon on Monday said that the UK is prepared to carry out a preemptive nuclear strike against any enemies, even if Britain is not under attack.

“In the most extreme circumstances we have made it very clear that you can’t rule out the use of nuclear weapons as a first strike,” Fallon said on the BBC’s Today program, however not specifying what “most extreme circumstances” imply.

 

“The whole point about the deterrent is that you have got to leave uncertainty in the mind of anyone who might be thinking of using weapons against this country,” he said.

With North Korea and now US test-launching their nukes, and Thaad being deployed uncomfortably close to China and Russian borders, it is no surprise that a recent report by the UN Institute for Disarmament Research (UNIDIR) showed that the threat of a “nuclear weapon detonation event,” accidental or deliberate, is “arguably at its highest in the 26 years since the collapse of the Soviet Union,” as relations between nuclear powers continue to deteriorate.

UK. Preemptive. Strike. Against. Russia. Sick, terminal stage, no cure possible.

The Russians are the last rational crowd standing. We owe it to them that war has not yet broken out. Mark my words: We should pray every day that Putin and his team continue to keep a cool head despite those constant attacks.

I think Putin has figured out that the tribe wants to force him to be the one who incinerates the 6 billion goyim they are so desperate to holocaust.

They know that their anlgo-imperialist empire won't participate in the coming Eurasian development project. Nothing to scavange on for the US and UK slumlords, therefore, Eurasia has to be destroyed before it becomes a large-scale economic success story. It is that simple. Everything else has been noise since the English had to face the reality that their sea-based empire would go down the drain.

This plan is entirely compatible with the idea of a greater Israel that would be built on the ruins of a devastated Near East.

Well, a nuclear counter-strike at the anglo-zionists would at least make Brexit a very short and swift affair. Albeit with a larger fall-out.

Could someone please take the keys away from Michael Fallon? Did he just arrive from the 1950s in a time machine?

Many politicians in the UK are owned by Israel - the nation that somehow benefits greatly with more conflicts in the world.

true, some British politicians are very much pro-Israel

but it's also true that British Labour, their party of the Left, has quite a sizable pro-Palestinian and anti-Zionist grouping

and, generally speaking, nearly all the Left parties in Europe share this anti-Zionist attitude

recently visible in the German Foreign Minister's (a "Lefty", a social democrat) visit to Israel, where Bibi, the PM, refused to see him as scheduled because he met some Palestinian and one critical Israeli group

something that was defended by Israel's president, who said: "The Israeli Defense Forces are the most moral/ethical of the world"

and Bibi was attacked by the leader of the Israeli opposition (again, on the Left) as "irresponsible" for that

do you see the pattern? in europe and Israel, most if not all criticism of the Israeli government's policies come from the Left

a political/ideological grouping that has not been very lucky, lately, and is in deep disarray

giovanni_f's picture

there are "anti-zionists" in every country including Israel. But they dont count. They are overwhelmed by the massiv firepower of AIPAC and affiliates. Take Germany as an example where the hardline-zionist "Zentralrat der Juden" represents not the majority of German jews but is gven the de facto represention monopoly for ALL jews by the media and political apparatus. Why? 

soyungato's picture

The Zionists are like metastatic cancer cells. I wonder if Germany is also infiltrated. Asia will be that mcuh more difficult for them to influnce. That is why they hated the alliance between China and Russia

"I think Putin has figured out that the tribe wants to force him to be the one who incinerates the 6 billion goyim they are so desperate to holocaust.".

Well, a few years ago, before the zio-coup d'etat in Kiev, most folks would say "that's a sick joke".

However, what you say is more closer to the truth than one may grasp.

 

Catherine Austin-Fitts said recently that the (((Banksters))) wanna a war with 100,000,000 dead.

That would surely include alot of Russians, Europeans & Yankees.

In hindsight, too bad the 6 holyhoax million never happened:

 

*David Cole in Auschwitz full documentary 1992*

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHzWo79dCHs

 

The real holocaust happened to Germans AFTER WWII:

ca 1,000,000 German POW's died in Eisenhowers Death Camps alone.

*Eisenhower's Rhine Meadows Death Camps Documentary*

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9fXQwc_Wz1c

More than 9,000,000 German Civilians were killed in the Allied Occupation of Germany 1944-1950.

It was GERMANS that were exterminated, AFTER WWII.

You're dead on target... keep firing!

Re-read what he said.  The headline here is misleading.

At first, as a UK citizen I was angry when I read the headline as it implied the Defence minister was being crass, irresponsible and just plain moronic.

But no, he said "in the most extreme of circumstances", so he's saying that we will not only launch nuclear weapons as a retaliation for a nuclear strike, but for also something else as extreme.

So if a moron like Kum Jum decides he can fire say let off some nerve agent in a British city, or that some other attack that results in millions of British citizens starving to death (note, this is possible without WMDs) then we can launch missiles.  And yes that makes perfect sense, as the defence minister said we should leave doubt in the minds of our enemies.

All I add to that is we should leave no doubt at all that if they attack us with MWDs we will respond with MWDs, that is the safest policy all around (and I do not feel it is threatening if Russia tells us that either, MAD works).

But he makes a damn good point, at a minimum we can only hit 48 Russian cities, but with two (of the four) submarines likely operational we will be able to hit 96.  Lets make sure that our future Trident replacement is big enough to "wipe Russia off the face of the earth" since they seem to think that the loss of 48-96 cities in Russia (~80 of population) is survivable.

Actually lets not, because even with 96 hits may result in a nuclear winter which would kill 90% of the worlds population, doubling it no doubt would.

Upon reflection it is the Russian minister here who is being very stupid and gung-ho, makes a refreshing change, I blame brexit for the first (I've noticed) non-stupid comment from a NATO member.

In short, you are as sick as your bosses.

You need to re-read your re-read.  You have it all backwards now.  A 'first strike' means you make the first attack.  There is no other way to read that.

Hey Eddie, the UK is being attacked as we speak by weapons of mass muslims. What the hell is going on with Britain's insane Islamification of it tiny little island??? Good luck with that.

With idiots like Fallon, Theresa May, and Boorish Johnson running things in the UK, it becomes clear why BritBob is so obsessed about Gibraltar and the Malvinas Islands: that's all that will remain of the British Empire.

But hey, at least Parasite Central, a.k.a. the City of London, will get what it deserves.

funny that. when it's about saber rattling with Russia, the UK gov becomes

"idiots like Fallon, Theresa May, and Boorish Johnson"

when it is about leaving the EU... they become the smartest and most sensible people on Earth

meanwhile, at the last G7 meeting both the US and UK Foreign Secretaries asked for more sanctions against Russia

and what did the "rest-of-the-EU" countries' foreign ministers, from Italy to France to Germany reply? a polite... no

and those cracks might become huge yawning chasms before someone here starts to get the idea, eh?

Leaving the EU was a choice made by British voters.

Fallon, Theresa May, and Boorish Johnson: still idiots.

meanwhile, at the last G7 meeting both the US and UK Foreign Secretaries asked for more sanctions against Russia

and what did the "rest-of-the-EU" countries' foreign ministers, from Italy to France to Germany reply? a polite... no

A good start, but still baby steps. I'll believe they're vertebrates when I see unambiguous defiance of orders received from the kindly uncle across the ocean.

Ghordius's picture

you believe otherwise because you are a pro-Russian partisan... more then the Russian government itself

where does Mr. Putin hold talks about Ukraine, with the Ukrainian government and those of France and Germany?

all over our places, including recently in Hamburg, Germany

funny, eh? the US and Russia can't even stage a meeting between high level diplomats without making a huge spat out of it, and Mr. Putin can have quiet, sensible talks with us all over the place

the Russian government does not strive for european dis-integration. for sure not a complete one. and you know why? because US and UK influence would increase

and so NATO, too, would increase it's "need to exist"... and it's "let's poke the Bear" game

"I'll believe they're vertebrates when I see unambiguous defiance of orders received from the kindly uncle across the ocean."

then never, then this instance was clearly not enough for you. I wonder what would

ah, the beauty of full-to-the-hilt partisanship. I wish I could be so idealistically partisan

Shemp 4 Victory's picture

Whatever, Ghordonaut. If I seem partial to the Russians, it's only because after more than 5 decades of immersion in US propaganda, I'm seeing that everything I've been told about how good America is and how evil the USSR was and, by extension, how evil Russia is, has been bullshit all along. Sorry if I'm a bit biased now against the bullshitters.

Ghordius's picture

+1 Shemp, you actually highlighted why your experience and my experience are so different

my decades of immersion in propaganda... were in both "waters"

on the Right, I was told that Uncle Sam was holy and good, while Uncle Jo was bad and evil

on the Left, I was told that Uncle Jo was holy and good, while Uncle Sam was bad and evil

considering that some of the girls I was pursuing were either convinced Communists or convinced Fascists...

yes, I can absolutely understand your bias against the bullshitters. I share that bias. are you careful never to become one of them?

Russia, btw, is not the USSR. now, that thing I traveled around, and I can really tell you, it was an evil, people-troddening affair

meanwhile, today's Russia has not changed it's pre-USSR foreign affairs outlook. and, to be fair, a lot of it is pure... geography

Easily lead dicks on both issues, surely? Including Boris' Lie-Bus. Both benefit the US MIC,

I guess you are one of these plastic democrats (democrat in Greek meaning - not poltical party), who believes that everyone should have liberty and the nation state is sacricent except where you decide that the 3000 people living in the Falklands must belong to another country who has not had any sovereignty or ownership of that territory for 400+ years (even then it lasted less than 2 weeks before being abandoned!).  And I don't blame them, if you think that Argentinia is so wonderful prove it and go and live there.

And yes, we disbanded the British Empire, but as a letter from Gladstone in the 1800's said, "the damn colonists will eventually get their independance", so its not been exactly a surprise to us in the UK for 200 years, but hey, I guess you are just slow.

They despise national borders. 

We are all very much hemmed in by them and they will do whatever is required to keep it that way.

I guess

...wrongly. I don't actually give a damn about the Malvilands/Falkinas.

3000 people living in the Falklands must belong to another country who has not had any sovereignty or ownership of that territory for 400+ years (even then it lasted less than 2 weeks before being abandoned!).

Bla bla bla. Nobody cares. They can sink beneath the waves and no one would even notice.

The only reason I even mentioned them is because monomaniacal BritBob has made his life's mission to endlessly post crap about them as if they were somehow important.

And yes, we disbanded the British Empire, but as a letter from Gladstone in the 1800's said

butthurt in you I detect.

That's entirely a perception issue: your statement is correct for the ordinary people of UK; not so much for the decision-making Zionist "elites" with ICBM launch codes in their suitcase.

because Brussels is aiming nuclear weapons on the ordinary people of the UK?

or because Brussels is throwing the UK out of the EU?

yes, perception. yes, where is the difference in perception between let's say England and... Scotland?

I doubt that the majority of Brits are itching for a nuclear war with Russia (or any adversary whatsoever).

OTOH, Ghordo, Brits have already said what they think of your favorite Harlot.
