How To Avoid A New War In Europe By Vladimir Kozin

4 December 2018 — Oriental Review

There is a rather embarrassing negative perspective for maintaining rational military strategic parity between Russia and USA and Russia and NATO as a whole in the coming decades due to future tremendous expenditures of the USA for modernizing strategic and tactical nuclear forces that will require $ U.S. 1,2-1,7 trillion during next three decades for hammering out a qualitatively new strategic nuclear triad only. Substantial amount of money will be allocated for procurement of the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS), space-based strike assets and conventional arms as well. No other nation in the world can afford to spend such enormous amount of money.

NATO’s Largesse: “Nuclear Sharing” By Ann Garrison

30 November 2018 — Global Research

On November 10, a 5,290-ton Norwegian warship sank into one of the country’s inner fiords after colliding with a 62,557-ton tanker carrying almost 100 million liters of oil. CNN reported, “Now all that remains above the waterline is the frigate’s top, antennas and radar, leading local media to speculate how a ship designed for war failed to avoid a slow-moving, 62,557-ton tanker.”

Unwrapping Armageddon: The Erosion of Nuclear Arms Control By Conn M. Hallinan

13 November 2018 — Dispatches from the Edge

The decision by the Trump administration to withdraw from the Intermediate Nuclear Force Agreement (INF) appears to be part of a broader strategy aimed at unwinding over 50 years of agreements to control and limit nuclear weapons, returning to an era characterized by the unbridled development weapons of mass destruction.

Why Would Trump Want An Arms Race?

6 November 2018 — Oriental Review

US President Donald Trump has announced his intention to withdraw from the INF Treaty and resume production of the very missiles that the treaty prohibited, missiles that are designed to reach Russian targets from Europe. So what does this mean? That Washington has decided to use defence spending to bring Moscow to its knees or that it is preparing for war?

A Dying Race Couldn’t Influence The Defense Of Western Civilization

22 October 2018 — Oriental Review

The campaign against the military use of nuclear technology never lets up, even for a single day. The opponents of those deadly warheads have made a lot of progress: bans have been put in place against tests in the atmosphere, underwater, and in space. In general, the number of nuclear detonations has dropped significantly since the era of the Cold War.

Death Is in Charge of the Clattering Train of US Security Policy By Martin Sieff

22 October 2018 — Strategic Culture Foundation

Does the US Deep State really want to provoke a thermonuclear world war with Russia, China and Iran at the same time? The recklessness and confusion of US policies provoking major crises on every side certainly suggests so. Yet the truth may be even more terrifying.

The Satanic Nature of the Atomic Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki

By Prof. Edward Curtin, August 06, 2018

When on August 6 and 9, 1945 the United States killed 200-300 thousand innocent Japanese civilians with atomic bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, they did so intentionally.  It was an act of sinister state terrorism, unprecedented by the nature of the weapons but not by the slaughter. The American terror bombings of Japanese cities that preceded the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki – led by the infamous Major General Curtis LeMay – were also intentionally aimed at Japanese civilians and killed hundreds of thousands of them.  Continue reading

Pundits Worry Threat of Nuclear War Is Being Reduced By Gregory Shupak

14 June 2018 — FAIR

Media outlets don’t want America to negotiate with North Korea; they want the US to hold  North Korea for ransom.

MSNBC: Trump & Kim Now Meeting With Staff

MSNBC‘s Rachel Maddow (6/12/18) appears dismayed by the manifestation of a US president meeting with an Official Enemy.

On MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show, the host was aghast (6/12/18) that the US says it will halt the annual war games it conducts with South Korea on North Korea’s doorstep, because doing so is “an absolute jackpot for the North Korean dictator,” “one of the things he wants most on earth,” and now Washington “has just given them that for free, for nothing.”

North Korea May Cancel Summit Over Bolton’s ‘Absurd’ Demands

16 May 2018 — Moon of Alabama

The Trump administration thought it was an easy path in its negotiations with North Korea. Trump was euphoric when North Korea released three U.S. prisoners and proudly announced the June 12 summit with Kim Jong-un in Singapore where North Korea would agree to give up all its nuclear weapons and nuclear development programs. Trump would get a Nobel peace prize and all would be well.
