RussianFrom the middle of May to early of June 2014 the RUSSIAN FEDERATION undertook two large command-staff exercises testing the realization of a local nuclear attack. According to military experts there were never such dense and extensive testing scenarios of nuclear war even in the SOVIET UNION.

Because they can and because there is no one (anymore) that can stop them?
let’s see, Iran will develop nukes, has rockets ..... doesn’t care about Mutually Assured Destruction cause of their religion. ‘nuff said.
ISIS is bad news. The longer it takes for civilization to wake up, the more challenging it's going to be to stop them.
I wouldn’t worry about Russian nukes. Obama is preparing for the real threats. Obama is looking into the name of the DC football team and new restrictions on using coal to power our country, and he might just pivot to jobs for the 19th time. We’re safe with Barack on the job.
Yup. But not just Iran. There's a crazy religion that has started a one-hundred year war against the rest of the world, already been in progress for some years. Sooner or later, they will set off nukes against us and others. Not if, but when is the question. At least the Russians understand. Our leader would rather cripple our space and military technology while force-feeding schoolkids crap to eat. Misplaced priorities while the world burns.
A Combination of Sabre-rattling, and preparation for real, existing threats...
That it comes in the middle of the tensions over Ukraine is a convenient coincidence.
It’s the Russians way of telling Obama they just aren’t afraid of a pufter.
Something few people realize is that as time passes a nuclear exchange becomes more and more likely. As more small states develop their defensive and offensive capabilities, the likelihood that some regional conflict will spark off a few mushroom clouds increases exponentially.
Further, the demographic reshuffling of post-war western Europe led to nations that were largely homogenous and significantly united by common language, history, and self-interest. One of the most significant of the historical flash-points of European conflict, un-assimilated populations from another country residing within one’s borders (Alsace/Lorraine, Sudatenland, etc,), have been removed from the post-war map of Europe. Many of these areas experienced what was, effectively, ethnic cleansing following the end of the second world war.
One of the contributing factors behind the collapse of the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact countries was that unlike western Europe those nations were left in the unenviable position of trying to overcome ‘diversity’ and forge a united political and social front. The post-war stability in western Europe (and the phenomenally abnormal lack of armed conflict in western Europe during that time) is a direct consequence of this comparative homogeneity. But as time has marched on divisive elements have been introduced into western Europe, adding an adversarial element to the political process in many of those nations and promising future unrest. If demographic and cultural trends are allowed to continue apace, we might see ethnic strife similar to that which tore Yugoslavia apart played out on a larger scale in Europe.
Then we have a resurgent China making long-term preparations towards achieving regional super-power status and hegemonic control of many parts of Asia. Armed conflict between the United States and China may be inevitable at this point, which as unfortunate as it would be is still likely preferable to an American capitulation the likes of which would issue from any administration as feckless as the current one.
The post-cold-war era was one of those exceptionally rare moments of relative serenity in world history, one that’s not likely to be repeated any time soon. I don’t think many people alive today realize what a unique and rare respite this is, how historically abnormal and unsustainable this long run of peace is, and I doubt many people pause to enjoy it as they should.
Another factor to consider - Fukushima has opened Pandoras box. We now have a guaranteed nuclear contaminated future. The only method to stop the three entire melted down reactors from eventually entering the Pacific Ocean, the Giant Ice Wall, has failed. They cannot get the ground to freeze probably due to the heat of the hot core remnants. That means that all three reactors cores will eventually be washed out into the Pacific. May take 100 years to flush it all out, but no way to stop it now.
So the nuclear gloves are coming off. World wide contamination is guaranteed now.
I wish I could find in English the speech that Andrei Illarionov, Putin’s former economics advisor gave to the NATO gathering at the end of May, and post it here. The Russians have been conducting the World War IV for a while, and in very asymmetrical fashion.
Thanks for the link, OMCRevMom, I’ll try to post it.
Oops, UMCRevMom, I apologize for the wrong spelling, darn Autocorrect strikes again :).
Russia will never strike Iran or vica versa, they are allies.
Just reminding everybody that they have the bomb. So, even though they’re busy with Ukraine, do anybody try any funny stuff with the bear.
russia and iran are allies. just like germany and russia were allies during WWII. russia has a large muslim problem. Iran is an islamic state and in order to keep muzzies in line, there is no better way than killing a couple of thousand at a time to “negotiate from strenth”.
Iran is a Shia Islam state. Two totally different Islamic traditions (and they fight each other more than they fight the West or Russia). Iran is also a Russian ally.
