Chechnya's Leader Claims "Russian Doomsday Device" Is Activated

Authored by Mac Slavo via,

Ramzan Kadyrov, the leader of Chechnya, gave a rare interview to a media outlet in the United States that aired Tuesday, and what he said is taking many aback...

While speaking to HBO’s Real Sports, Kadyrov denied that gay people are humans, that they exist in his region, and that his government regularly detains or tortures them, despite ample reports to the contrary. But that isn’t the news that’s riling up the masses, even though it is concerning that Kadyrov is more than likely committing human rights violations. He also made a troubling comment about his country’s nuclear arsenal and a Russian doomsday device.

Kadyrov said,

“America is not really a strong enough state for us to regard it as an enemy of Russia. We have a strong government and are a nuclear state.


Even if our government was completely destroyed, our nuclear missiles would be automatically deployed. We will put the whole world on its knees and screw it from behind.”

That comment certainly puts the left’s insistence on a war with Russia in perspective.  And Kadyrov is probably being more accurate than not in that statement.

According to The New York Times, Russia built a system in the 1980s that could do what Kadyrov described, known as the Perimeter System. Bruce Blair, the former US nuclear officer who broke the story of the Perimeter System for The New York Times in 1993, told Business Insider that the system works when it detects nuclear explosions. Only a small crew, deep in a bunker, has a hand in the otherwise automated system, according to Blair.

Essentially, if another country conducted a nuclear attack that would destroy the government of Russia or anything a 1980s-era system would perceive as a nuclear attack, an automated system would empty Russia’s missile silos in an immediate counterattack. Blaire’s concern is the automation of such a system

“One concern is that it’s highly automated, and cyber attacks, for example, or other phenomena, natural or man-made, could set it off,” Blair said. “It poses a risk of accidental nuclear attack by Russia.”

But there has yet to be an accidental nuclear attack and it’s been over 30 years since the system was first activated. But could the 1980’s technology pose a problem and cause an all out nuclear war? It’s hard to say, and experts are not sure either. “This was designed to retaliate massively against the US. What the specific targets are in this plan no one really knows, but it can be safely assumed it’s large-scale,” Blair said, adding that it would destroy most Americans and most large US cities.

This is troublesome to many Americans, considering the US president is supposed to sign off on any nuclear attack to prevent accidental strikes, and the left is continuing to push the former Soviet Union increasing tensions with Russia. If Washington were incapacitated by a nuclear strike, it’s unclear whether it could respond at all. The US’s nuclear weapons are code-locked and absent the president and a backup in the Pentagon, the US may not be able to respond. Moscow code-locks its weapons as well, but this system would allow it to retaliate even after a nuclear decapitation.

I think we can be pretty certain that deep in a bunker somewhere there is a US 'last resort' computer or person.

I wonder if that person has family above ground? 

Such a thing has to be automated.  Exterminating life on the surface of the planet is not an easy decision.  If a human-being were to push the red-button he or she would die in the bunker she pushed it from, as there would be no way to surface without dying of radiation poisoning.

My eighties computers still work fine.  I dig them up when the modern ones fail.
My eighties dot matrix printer still works fine.  I dig it up when my modern printer doesn't work.  Sure, I have to run a few pages through it before the ink starts flowing, I'm a little limited in fonts, but I get the job done.

Do you remember the insane screaming noise from 24-pin dot matrix printers set to do high quality passes? :D

8-pin were peaceful Muzak by comparison. But still needed noiseproof hoods :D

I think some places still use them because they can do multiple carbon copy sheet layers, unlike lasers or whatever.

More indications of absolutely unacceptable Russia aggressive expansion.

How dare they move their borders close to the flightpath of our Global Hawk drones.

  Does anyone really think that Russia has a 1980's era ultimate defense system that has been untouched for 30 years? The basic concept of that system is still in place but the components are being constantly upgraded. From the ordinance to the AI detection and deployment. Russia has demonstrated that they have an EMP technology that can immobalize the latest US naval ships without frying their electronics. The US does not have this nor does it have a way to prevent it. 

  The Russian 'Dead Hand' system and their undetectable nuclear armed subs just off both US coasts are keeping the US military in a constant state of diahrea.

Yes.  Just like the US has 70's era Nuclear stuff that hasn't been upgraded.  8 inch floppies and all.

There is no ink to flow. A dot matrix printer does not uses ink cartridges, but a textile ribbon soaked in ink.

And about those 80's computers... They might still work, but they can't do shit.

I own an IBM PC/XT which still runs Lotus 1-2-3 v4 nicely :-)

And also IBM Personal Editor II and a bunch of other 1980s era s/w.

Okay, so it takes a few pages before the wet ink reaches the ribbon.  Satisfied?

Yeah, the 64 x 32 low resolution graphics are pretty useless, but the other one is a little bit better.  Still all right for basic word processing, or solving simple problems.  Totally useless for modelling airflow and vector fields.

"There is no ink to flow. A dot matrix printer does not uses ink cartridges, but a textile ribbon soaked in ink."

True, but the ribbon length that's left exposed when not in use tends to dry out, so you have to run a few pages thru the printer so the cartridge winds the ribbon thru the cartridge to a section that's still got ink!

80's computers still do exactly what they did when they were manufactured. Why does a program that i use to view PDF's consume 1000x the space that my entire OS did in 1990?

Define "shit" for us... Yeah, I know, the Video Toaster didn't come out until 1990 for the Amiga...(even though it was previewed in 1987).

Let me guess, for you it was an 8 bit IBM piece of crap?




gaoptimize's picture

The Video Toaster was a false promise in a broken or extremely high cost production chain.  It sucked me and a bunch of other dreamers in 20 years before we should have been.  With today's technology (the promised land), I can produce better than network, noiseless, quality if I'm willing to let my filters (Neat Video) run over night on the few projects I do, and then burn to BluRay for archival or upload for disribution.

1980's computers reached their pinacle with the spreadsheet "Javelin", and other than that, they were blunt tools.

I waited me whole life for 64 bit computers, 4+Gig RAM, terabyte hard drives, built-in co-processors and when it all finally got here I can't use it.  Sure its possible to use, I just gotta find out how.  Might figure it out within the next 3 decades.  Mind you, the best information was ALWAYS hidden.

"Shit" (in that context) = anything useful today.

Well, it didn't get triggered when the Chelyabinsk space rock blew up in the atmosphere over Russia in 2013 with an estimated yield of a 400-500 kiloton nuclear blast. If another Tunguska event happens though, we may not be so lucky.

Get fucked.  When I need a reliable computer, I've got one.  Shame it ain't up to modern spec but that's life.  Give me total control over a modern computer and I'll consider not telling you to get fucked.  Modern tech is a great idea when you can access it.  That is the problem.  Access.

No, What this really means is that, North Korea doesn't need too many nuclear missiles. Just aim at Russia, not the US (already in range). Presumably the Russian automated missiles are per-targeted at the US and its nuclear allies, namely UK and France (and Germany).

A simple solution for Kim Jong Un, End of story!

LOL -- Chechnya leader says...  this is about as reliable as CNN or Fox *newz* says.

All the major nuclear powers have WELL KNOWN doomsday devices.  They are called submarines.  Not a secret, and certainly not news.

I think that's exactly what Mao did during the Sino-Soviet Split; China would aim for the American instead knowing the Americans' should be pre-targeted toward the Soviet.

We have Loki. Loki has never broken an oath or acted dishonorably.

( Except perhaps when he gave birth to Slypnir, Odin's eight legged horse. But no. Even that was done to save Asaheim)

Your Allfather, on the other hand committed the greatest crime of all. He murdered his wife Ashera. And hence the unbalanced Patriarchy of Monotheism.
