Skip to comments.Red Dawn, Still Crazy After All These Years…
Posted on 07/08/2012 2:21:39 PM PDT by Whenifhow
Здравствуйте! A formal hello, how ya doin? salute with a middle finger and a nuclear bomber from the Ruskies has come our way not once, but twice in the last two weeks. Seems to me the Russians are itching for war and are prepping on all fronts. This time Moscow dispatched nuclear-capable bombers into the 200-mile zone surrounding U.S. territory. They came just short of breaching the 12 mile zone we consider sovereign air space. The previous incident involved two Tu-95 Bear H bombers and took place near Alaska as part of arctic war games that Russian military claim included simulated attacks on enemy air defenses and strategic facilities. How very Red Dawn.
Im sure you all remember how Red Dawn was over the top and completely implausible and other dismissive epithets of the thats crazy it could never happen variety. And anyone who actually tried to have a discussion of a scenario like that was summarily labeled nuts. Well, after all these years, I have to wonder if that idea is still crazy, or if its very plausibility drives the four-year delay of the movies remake you know, the one that was supposed to release just before the 2008 election and which now wont be released until after the 2012 election. Yeah. Still crazy, after all these years. Lets look further into this
It appears our old pals, the Russians, are war gaming striking two of our strategic missile sites with their long-range air-launched cruise missiles: Fort Greely, Alaska and Vandenberg Air Force Base, California. Yeah, now I know why Obama is so cuddly with Putin, they both have similar goals of destroying America.
Not long ago, Russia brought up the ominous specter of a preemptive first strike against the United States. This was in response to US deployments of missile defense interceptors and sensors in Europe. As far as I know, we are moving ahead with those activities. In Russias eyes, if the situation gets any worse, they will decide whether to hit us or not and they smell blood and weakness in the waters surrounding America these days. It would be the perfect emergency.
From The Washington Free Beacon:
Retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney, a former Alaska commander for the North American Aerospace Defense Command, said the latest Bear H intrusion appears to be Russian military testing.
Its becoming very obvious that Putin is testing Obama and his national security team, McInerney told the Free Beacon. These long-range aviation excursions are duplicating exercises I experienced during the height of the Cold War when I command the Alaska NORAD region.
McInerney said the Bear H flights are an effort by the Russians to challenge U.S. resolve, something he noted is somewhat surprising as Obama is about to make a unilateral reduction of our nuclear forces as well as major reductions in our air defense forces.
Actions by Russia in Syria and Iran demonstrate that Cold War strategy may be resurrected, he said.
These are not good indications of future U.S. Russian relations.
Indeed, these are very bad indications and all Americans should be paying attention to this. Russia is beefing up their weaponry while we are cutting ours (thanks to the dumb bastard in the White House). When Romney is elected, he may have more than just economic headaches to worry about. The Russian Bear with Iran and China could very well pull us into a nuclear World Ware III. The Cold War never went away folks. Dont kid yourselves.
From The New American:
On May 3, 2012, Russian Chief of General Staff Nikolai Makarov warned that Russia would deploy its strategic nuclear rockets in Kaliningrad Oblast, potentially to destroy the U.S. antiballistic missile defense system, planned for Europe. Makarov went even further, warning of a possible preemptive nuclear attack. A decision to use destructive force preemptively will be taken if the situation worsens, Makarov said.
The planned U.S. missile defense system to protect Europe from a nuclear missile attack has caused much friction between Russia and United States. Russia considers the antiballistic missile system an encroachment on its traditional sphere of influence and a threat to its national security, seeing as it could neutralize Russias nuclear deterrence of Europe. In the event of a war, this would give the U.S. and NATO a considerable advantage; the U.S. or NATO would be able to launch a preemptive strike on Russia without having to fear nuclear retaliation. As a result, Russia views the system as an indication the U.S. and NATO intend to go to war with Russia.
The U.S., on the other hand, has repeatedly stated that its intention is not to deter a missile launch from Russia, but from either Iran or North Korea. The U.S. and its NATO partners, including Britain, Poland, and the Czech Republic, are committed to its deployment, while Russia fiercely opposes it. Neither side will budge that is up until now.
This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility, President Barack Obama privately told Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, at the Nuclear Security Summit, in Seoul, South Korea, on March 26, 2012. Medvedev replied, I understand you. I transmit this information to Vladimir [Putin], and I stand with you. Vladimir Putin was not the only person Obamas private message was transmitted to. Unbeknownst to Obama or Medvedev, their conversation was recorded and broadcast live via an open microphone and camera.
Obama has no intention of protecting America and several well-placed EMPs would take our military and electrical grids down for the count. Millions would die and that is IF the Russians and Chinese dont physically invade us. If they do, even more will die and the red, white and blue will become just red. It will make Red Dawn look like a walk in the fricking park. Tick bloody tock.
Of course, after the two incidents with the Russians, instead of upping our security threat level, the Obama administration immediately began to downplay the threat as merely a training activity. Training for what then? Tag? How do you think the Russians view this? They think we are cowards and weak vulnerable to attack and they would be right. And still NORAD and our weak kneed leaders say they do not consider these intrusions to be a credible threat. Well, now I feel ALL better, dont you?
The Alaska bomber flights coincided with a summit between Obama and Putin in Mexico on June 18. The other was Putins Fourth of July Bear greeting to Obama.
According to U.S. officials, some 30 bombers and support aircraft took part in the war games, including the Bear Hs and Tu-160 Blackjack bombers.
As reported by The Washington Free Beacon, Russian Air Force spokesman Lt. Col. Vladimir Deryabin, told reporters in Moscow last month that the arctic strategic war games practice destruction of enemy air defenses and strategic facilities. Do the math.
Remember, its totally a coincidence that the remake of the movie Red Dawn has now been delayed four years. Coinciding with a presidential election right after the election. How convenient. Red Dawn is still crazy after all these years and yet could happen any day. America should be vigilant.
If Russia or any other enemy had their version of a Barack “Quisling” Obama-type weakling, wouldn’t we be wise to take advantage of it? So why wouldn’t they?
“....now I know why Obama is so cuddly with Putin, they both have similar goals of destroying America....”
You’ve got it, sister!
OK. Plausible although somewhat disappointing, this was a change I could at least understand.
Then they chickened out and decided to revamp the movie and digitally alter the bad guys into North Koreans.
What a load of crap! I won't even waste my money on this nonsense now! Hollywood is so full of cowards. They're afraid of everything and everyone. Spineless bunch all of them!!
Actually if Odumbo gets re-elected, a Russian invasion is the least of our worries and may even be advantageous. I think the Russkies are less leftist and dangerous to our freedom than this administration.
200 Miles ?
Heck, you can hear them from 200 miles away.
Russian Personal income tax (PIT) is levied individually normally at 13 percent. There is no joint filing. Employers withhold income taxes, thus the taxpayers whose only taxable income was paid by employer do not need to file a tax returnexcept to claim a refund for itemized deductions. The most important deductions are for home purchase (once a life), and education and medical expenses.
They drill all the oil and gas they can find, and are a giant exporter.
They are considering a gold backed trade currency.
They actually have a launch vehicle for going into space.
They fine any organization advocating homosexuality.
They strictly limit new mosques.
They have an Orthodox Chapel on their subs, and recently built an air-droppable Orthodox chapel for use with the airborne forces.
Their president wears a crucifix, and isn’t a pussy.
Compare all that to Obamas vision of America and what HE creates,, and it almost makes you want to cook up a big pot of borscht, and make up a mess of smoked fish and hot tea to welcome them. These are crazy times. When Red Dawn came out, they were an atheistic expansionist, broke nation. Now it’s us that is atheistic by policy, now dying to invade Syria to help Al Queida, and are beyond broke. Sad sad sad,,,
Now who was that stupid DemoRAT B!tch with the RESET button???
Well well well.
Wonder is Puttie want to play cat and mouse?
The B-1B is an awesome aircraft. I have seen night takeoff with the afterburners kicked in. The sight, sound and vibration is amazing. Incredible bomber. Long range bomber that flies fast, ground hugging approach. Huge payload conventional and other.
Earlier I was posting about a theoretical situation of the Japanese invading America, their goal is to remove evey part of the Obama regime, why?
Because an Obama socialist America would be a threat and a death song to a ravaged crippled nation.
And then you can toss in the Brits who claim Obama is actually a British subject and they place an arrest warrant out for him.
Now you can add the Russkies also wanting to put an end to socialism, why?
Because they know from experience its a failure, capitalism is a better alternative, also they will put all Moslems on a strict diet.
The Russians join forces with the Japanese combined with British intel. I actually have some bad vibes coming from the UK concerning Islamic terrorism, with Obama somehow involved.
Cruise missiles can travel what, 600 miles or so?
The air defenses inland better be ready for a low altitude attack just in case.
‘Plan Of Attack’ by Dale Brown highlights something like this, where in the book the Russians nuke the hell out of America.
It is a sad commentary that our arch enemies from the past are more moral and courageous then our country now. They are still very scary but they are protecting their future.
Isn’t that something? After all, Putin himself was the one who warned Obama not to make the same mistakes Russia made in re: to Communism.
