Russia Retaliates Against US: Puts Radar Station On Combat Alert, Prepares To Take Out European Missile Defense Systems

Tyler Durden's picture

Earlier today, we presented the latest developments in the escalating possibility of an imminent air (and potentially land) campaign targeting Syria by the "western world", a move that would infuriate not only Iran, but also Russia and China, both of which have made it clear they would not sit idly by and let such an "aggression" stand. Now it is Russia's turn to retaliate. Cutting straight to the chase - in a nationally televized appearance by Russian president Dmitry Medvedev: in response to what the Russian believes is an active incursion and a potential act of eventual aggression on behalf of NATO countries in Eastern Europe (and hence the US), he he said the following (7 minutes in): "First, I am instructing the Defense Ministry to immediately put the missile attack early warning radar station in Kaliningrad on combat alert. Second, protective cover of Russia's strategic nuclear weapons, will be reinforced as a priority measure under the programme to develop out air and space defenses. Third, the new strategic ballistic missiles commissioned by the Strategic Missile Forces and the Navy will be equipped with advanced missile defense penetration systems and new highly-effective warheads. Fourth, I have instructed the Armed Forces to draw up measures for disabling missile defense system data and guidance systems if need be... Fifth, if the above measures prove insufficient, the Russian Federation will deploy modern offensive weapon systems in the west and south of the country, ensuring our ability to take out any part of the US missile defense system, in Europe. One step in this process will be to deploy Iskander missiles in Kaliningrad Region. Other measures to counter the European missile defense system will be drawn up and implemented as necessary. Furthermore, if the situation continues to develop not in Russia's favor we reserve the right to discontinue further disarmament and arms control measures. Besides, given the intrinsic link between strategic offensive and defensive arms, conditions for our withdrawal from the New START Treaty could also arise." That said, he concludes that Russia is still open to dialog. However, if Obama merely intends to bomb any nation at will, we are very much concerned that everything Medvedev has just threatened will be enacted. And exponentially more so when Putin comes back in charge. One thing is certain - Russia is not North Korea, and taking this speech for more empty jawboning is probably not the wisest option.

Like no sky for you? No sky for anyone!

The boys with their guns have to play. No air for you.

The in-evitable mania of men and women in power. Bloodlust.

No need to bomb anyone. None. 

America, in your name or not?

This is all part of a greater game: America and the West are locked in a proxy war with the Eurasian autocracies (Pakistan, Russia, Iran, China — for short, the PRICs) for both Eurasia’s huge resources and manpower, and global military and financial supremacy. American policy is to retain the petrodollar-standard, and continue enjoying the free lunch such a system yields.

Russia and China don't want to fight a physical war. They want to fight (and win) the ongoing trade war, and degrade America's superpower status slowly and surely. And in that regard they are winning. That's why a military-industrial complex patsy like Romney is so dangerous. Plutocrats want their free lunches.

The only plausible way by which Barry & Associates (including the Zionist warmongers) could justify a war against the Islamic Republic of Iran is by staging another false flag attack on continental United States: most likely a controlled nuclear explosion (dirty bomb) targeting a major urban concentration that may kill dozens of thousands of civilians.

This operation will be carried out by the CIA in partnership with Mossad and MI6 to subsequently be blamed on AlQaeda working in conjunction with elements of Iran’s IRGC and Pakistan’s ISI.

Besides that, Americans are a bunch of stupid animals easy to manipulate and subdue. The psychological impact of this event will elicit the brute and ignorant populace to demand a massive retaliation against the alleged perpetrators (explicitly Iran); the Obama administration will need the unconditional support of these mules in order to further their agenda.

Absent of this essential prerequisite (a false flag operation), President Soetoro will find virtually impossible persuading US Congress to issue a formal declaration of war.

yes it does.  no indication of any of this post in the new york times that i could see (one story on syria, focussing on the contacts with britain by the syrian opposition).  but there was this (no surprise):

Government doesn't want public to know they are spending recession dollars on another war. They want public to shop on Black Friday deals on chinese goods after gorging and watching TV all day.


Any wonder why Russia backs up Syria? Syria wanted to switch into Russian Rubles.

This has a lot to do with Israel : "debkafile's military sources report that the US missile shield's command and control systems which the Russian president spoke of destroying are linked directly to Israel's missile defense network against Iranian, Syria and Hizballah missiles and the X-Band radar station located in the southern Israeli Negev.
Medvedev's threat to American "command and control systems" was therefore comprehensive. It referred not just to the US anti-missile shield facilities planned for Europe, but also to preparing measures for use ("if necessary") - in the course of  a possible American or Israeli attack on Iran or Syria - for striking the US missile defense systems in Europe before they can intercept Iranian missiles.
Knocking out the European shield would leave Israel completely exposed to Iranian missile attack."

I presume we may be about to see the war I foresaw 20 years ago in my 'apocalyptic vision':

Don't see what good God's warning has done.

Claiming special status from God (total bs anyway) does not justify evil acts.

Hey Bitchez,

Did I not say we were going to war with Russia?

All wars are planned by a small group of people and the winners and  losers are predetermined. Say hello to 1984... once again.

BigJim's picture

DEBKA is pretty clearly an Israeli propaganda unit. I'd take anything they publish with a very small grain of salt.

57Mike, you get the understatement award for the day.

"A lot to do with Israel"?

This has EVERYTHING to do with Israel!

I just wonder why Russia hasn't given Iran S-300's yet If they had done so, Israel would not be so belligerent.

actually all this war talk really does make me want to go shopping. i feel less threatened--and glad that what i just bought was actually there.

Who is the drunk up-thread who thinks the US needs a declaration of war?

jeff montanye's picture

i know.  i was with him to a degree until he went totally overboard in the last line.  declarations of war went out with tojo and hitler.

AldousHuxley's picture

Declarations of war is so WW2


Today you have


  1. Fed money printing so banks can buy Treasuries to fund the war
  2. Mass brainwashing of American public to win support (weapons of mass destruction, kardashians gossip, etc.)
  3. Mass distraction of target country's public to win support (civil unrest, riots, etc.)
  4. UN security voting / Coalition planning (who wants in/out, how to split oil loots from war)
  5. No fly zone to destroy air defenses "to protect civilians"
  6. coalition invades with air strikes
  7. fund and arm rebel forces to fight incumbent regime (let them fight each other)
  8. provide protection and build up government leaders chosen by war coalition

We are at step 3, western powers asking for step 4 and 5. Step 2 is Black Friday sales for Americans.

Unlike the cold war.. I think the US will be stupid enough to start more shit. How many wars do we need .. even the amount of wars are over leveraged . I pity mankind.

The whole 'false flag' bs is getting old. Liek all memes, it has a life-cycle and it's long past it's peak and it's sell-by date. Attributing everything to 'false-flag' operations is a bit like saying that the extraterrestrial are already among us, but don't want us to know. Why not? Well, you know why not if you read comic books and follow extraterrestrial blogs.

I have two words for you:

office. fires.

DanDaley's picture

Steel doesn't have to liquify (3,000 degrees) to weaken (does so nicely at 1,300 degrees).  Of course, this doesn't mean that the PTB won't take advantage of the mistaken beliefs of the superstitious.  Read Jorge Luis Borges' Death and the Compass to see how the Truthers, or anybody else who believes in fairy tales, can be played like a fiddle.

guiriduro's picture

True, even if we accept that reaching 1300F for a sustained period in a material that conducts heat away isn't all that easy (but it is possible, I'll grant.)  I'd be more worried by the chances that a building that has the unlikely case of becoming weakened by said fires, manages to fail in a catastrophic but symmetrical way removing resistance and falling at near free-fall speed into its own footprint.  Now, that's pretty unlikely (and by 'pretty', I mean 'extremely', of course.)  I think you need to be a fairytale believer to continue to believe that happened by chance, office fires, or off-centre fallen masonry or whatever, when controlled demolition explains it far more easily.

Agreed Caviar. The new "false flag" is nabbing them while they are in the planning stages. There's good reason for this: 911 was a fuckup, too many people figured it out. Too much hard evidence left behind. If they try it again, they'll get called on it.

i-dog's picture

They didn't get "called" on the false-flag "popular uprisings" (fully backed by MI6 & CIA via the Muslim Brotherhood) in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya. The public will believe anything they are told.

AldousHuxley's picture

syria is not even mentioned on


American public is busy trying to find out which Chinese junk to purchase on Black Friday after they eat like pigs.


Go to your walmart and ask them syria, iran, egypt, libya, etc...and all you get will be "muslims are bad".


We are in fucking world war 3.

Very true. Even if you find yourself in conversation on the internet with hundreds or thousands of people that see through the lies, always remember, you are surrounded by millions that are swallowing this hook, line, and sinker..

The israel controlled MSM in the US is well engineered and has been developed to vegetablize US citizens from childhood.

That is why Kick-a-J-day is so important and must be taught in all school systems. The follow up discussions will be invaluable to dis-brainwash our kids.

Take America back! NOW!

LOL ... too funny ... particularly the "outrage" from the brainwashed parents!

We also need a 'Kick-a-Mick-day', too!?!

I'm afraid you may be right, sir. I cannot find any mention in the US Press, or the two Brit broadsheets I checked. I'm going to the Asia Times and to Thierry Maisson's Voltaire Network. They often have the news you need, not printed in the controlled American press. There is supposedly an article by Madsen at Voltaire.

I think your confusing a meme with a fictional plot line that has been played too many times and has gotten old and tired for the audience.  A meme, however is an idea about the real world that is either true or false and its repetition continually over time does not in any way lead to its own refutation.

buyingsterling's picture

False flag/stand down operations are arguably a more common trigger to war than anything else: The Maine (false flag), the Lusitania (intentionally steered into hostile waters), Pearl Harbor (stand down), Gulf of Tonkin (false flag), Iraq etc. (false flag and stand down). Sorry, but if you believe the official 9.11 story, you are either willfully ignorant or stupid.
