Russian Strategic Bombers Near Canada Practice Missile Strikes On U.S.




Russian Strategic Bombers Near Canada Practice Cruise Missile Strikes On U.S.



Two Russian strategic bombers conducted practice cruise missile attacks on the United States during a training mission last week that defense officials say appeared timed to the NATO summit in Wales.
The Russian Tu-95 Bear bombers were tracked flying a route across the northern Atlantic near Iceland, Greenland, and Canada’s northeast.
Analysis of the flight indicated the aircraft were conducting practice runs to a pre-determined “launch box”—an optimum point for firing nuclear-armed cruise missiles at U.S. targets, said defense officials familiar with intelligence reports.

Disclosure of the nuclear bombing practice comes as a Russian general last week called for Moscow to change its doctrine to include preemptive strikes on the United States and NATO.
Gen. Yuri Yakubov, a senior Defense Ministry official, was quoted by the state-run Interfax news agency as saying that Russia’s 2010 military doctrine should be revised to identify the United States and the NATO alliance as enemies, and clearly outline the conditions for a preemptive nuclear strike against them.
Yakubov said among other needed doctrinal changes, “it is necessary to hash out the conditions under which Russia could carry out a preemptive strike with the Russian Strategic Rocket Forces”—Moscow’s nuclear forces.
The practice bombing runs are the latest in a series of incidents involving threatening Russian bomber flights near the United States. Analysts say the bomber flights are nuclear saber-rattling by Moscow as a result of heightened tensions over the crisis in Ukraine.
A spokesman for the U.S. Northern Command and North American Aerospace Defense Command declined to comment on the bomber flights in the North Atlantic.
Russian nuclear forces will conduct a large-scale exercise in mid-September, state news agencies reported.
The Tu-95 is a nuclear-capable bomber that is outfitted with six AS-15 nuclear-armed cruise missiles. The missiles have a range of over 1,800 miles.
Google Earth analysis reveals that a Tu-95 launch box located in the Labrador Sea and firing AS-15 missiles would be in range of Ottawa, New York, Washington, and Chicago, and could reach as far south as the Norfolk Naval base.

Northern Command has confirmed that Russian strategic bomber flights increased sharply over the past six months.

Last month, at least 16 bomber incursions by the Russians took place within the northwestern U.S. and Canadian air defense zones over a period 10 days. It was the largest number of incursions since the end of the Cold War. U.S. fighter jets intercepted the Russian aircraft and followed them until they exited the defense zone.
In June, Russian bombers flew over the arctic prompting intercepts by Canadian fighters on two occasions. The Canadian government called the stepped up bomber flights a “strategic message” from Moscow amid heightened tensions.
And on June 20, the Russian Defense Ministry announced the test launch of six AS-15 missiles from a Bear bomber during military exercises.
That same month, on June 9, two Russian Bear bombers flew within 50 miles of the California coast in the closest strategic bomber flights near a U.S. coast since the Cold War with the Soviet Union.
Admiral Cecil Haney, commander of the U.S. Strategic Command, which is in charge of nuclear forces, said last month that he is concerned both by large-scale Russian nuclear exercises and by increased bomber flights near the United States.
“Clearly, we at the U.S. Strategic Command do monitor the strategic environment,” Haney said noting large-scale nuclear exercises during the Ukraine crisis.
On long-range strategic aircraft flights, Haney said: “I will say that the business of them coming close to the United States of America, we take very seriously.”








While Selfie Supremos President Barack Obama and Prime Minister David Cameron were hosting NATO showbiz, complete with a flyover and kingly feast at Cardiff Castle, last Thursday and Friday, guess what the Russians were doing?

The Obama/Cameron NATO flyover was for show.  Putin’s nuclear bombing practice for cruise missile attacks is for real.

"Analysis of the flight indicated the aircraft were conducting practice runs to a pre-determined “launch box”—an optimum point for firing nuclear-armed cruise missiles at U.S. targets, said defense officials familiar with intelligence reports.


Problem is that while NATO leaders like Obama and Cameron, whose signature administrations come from ducking action, send out showbiz messages when holding summits to address Islamic terrorism, Russia sends out “strategic” ones.
The politics of posturing, rhetoric, grandstanding and showbiz have failed the populations of the Free West.  This includes the abysmal failure of the far left over the last three decades in uselessly declaring cities ‘nuclear weapons-free zones’.

Rhetoric, particularly when it comes from double-talking politicians, scares no one.

“Google Earth analysis reveals that a Tu-95 launch box located in the Labrador Sea and firing AS-15 missiles would be in range of Ottawa, New York, Washington, and Chicago, and could reach as far south as the Norfolk Naval base.”









Geo-political tensions around the world are indicative of a fast approaching breaking point. There is not a single populated region on earth right now that is not experiencing sweeping changes. Europe, the Middle East, Asia, the Americas – it's happening everywhere and all at once. Trying to make sense of it all can be a daunting task. But make no mistake. All of these events are interrelated and their outcomes will have a direct impact on the future of America and the world in the 21st century. To understand what's happening on the grand chessboard one must avoid the narratives being touted by media propaganda networks in their respective countries and focus instead on the motivating factors behind the moves.

We must understand, as global resource strategist Marin Katusa notes in a recent highly informative interview, that this is "the dirty secret of all of the governments." There is a silent war happening behind the scenes and as has been the case throughout history, it is a war for control over the world's resources.

Katusa, who is a top strategist at Casey Research and has worked closely with political and business leaders in over 100 countries, knows a thing or two about resource control. Like many government run sovereign investment funds, Katusa and his partners are actively engaged in resource acquisitions all over the world, so he has a unique perspective on the driving force behind all of the surface level conflicts being presented to the majority of the public.


Katusa explains that America's partners all over the world are coming under pressure from Russian and Chinese influence. This includes Europe and our mid-east oil partners, and the goal is to weaken America's hold over economic, financial and monetary affairs. Thus far, according to Katusa, Russia and China are winning.


The death of the dollar is upon us, the global power shift has already begun.


I call it the dirty secret of all of the governments.
… The reality is, it's been the Russians, the Chinese, the Indians, they're trying to look at diversifying out of the dollar. If you look at what Saudi Arabia is doing, they've had long discussions with the Russians on major military contracts, is something where they're true anchors to the petro-dollar of Saudi Arabia flips on America.
And it will happen, it's just a question of when. You'll see the death of the petro-dollar. And I can't emphasize just how serious of an issue that's going to be.










A new package of sanctions against Russia has been adopted by the EU. Previous reports said the "further restrictive measures" were aimed at targeting three major oil companies, as well as the defense sector.
According to a Monday statement by the president of the European Council, Herman Van Rompuy, the new package was adopted through written procedure, "deepening the targeted measures of 31 July."
"The sanctions aim at promoting a change of course in Russia's actions destabilizing eastern Ukraine,"the statement reads.
Although it was previously reported that the new sanctions could come into force by Tuesday, the final EU decision did not specify the date when they will be applied, only saying it "will take place in the next few days," leaving time "for an assessment of the implementation of the cease-fire agreement [in Ukraine]."
"Depending on the situation on the ground, the EU stands ready to review the agreed sanctions in whole or in part," Van Rompuy's statement reads.
Over the weekend, some EU diplomats told Reuters that the sanctions could be lifted if the ceasefire between the Ukrainian government and militia forces holds. The truce was agreed last week.
"A ceasefire must hold for sanctions to be lifted," the agency quoted a senior EU diplomat as saying.
According to some EU representatives, the sanctions could "even get ridden off entirely."
Despite some shooting over the weekend, "overall the ceasefire held," an OSCE security watchdog said on Monday, adding that "it is still shaky."

I don't know if this is the hook that Ezekiel talks about, but it does looks like the hook is in the water.

Thats always a good question - as far as the hook...To me, that ties in to the "loot and plunder" we see later, which could mean almost anything (in a way, its moot - because what matters here, is not the cause of the invasion ((although interesting to speculate)), but the fact that God directly intervenes..Thats what really matters...I don't think we'll see that happen first hand...But I believe we'll see Isaiah 17 play out first, before Gog-MaGog takes place - and will probably set the stage for Gog-MaGog.
