Putin Bans Russian Travel To UK, Cites ‘Inevitable’ Coming Terror Attack

May 28, 2017 1 comment

President Putin has urged Theresa May to listen to her people and reject the New World Order, and warned Russians not to travel to the United Kingdom until they get their house in order.

President Putin has urged British Prime Minister Theresa May to listen to her people and reject the New World Order, and warned Russians not to travel to the United Kingdom until they get their house in order.

Britain is the New World Order’s testing ground, and according to Putin a follow-up terror attack, hot on the heels of the Manchester atrocity, is now “inevitable” as the globalists continue to ramp up tension in Western countries.

Putin also suggested that the “growing influence of Islamic radicalism” among Muslim groups in British cities was a factor in the rising terrorist threat, and Theresa May’s decision to call in the army showed that Britain allowed a serious problem grow into a “very serious situation”.

Warning British citizens to “expect the worst before the general election“, Putin said, “Men of Great Britain, protect your women and children.”

The New World Order put hornet nests in your countries,” the Russian president said on Wednesday, referring to radical Islamist communities. “And now they are poking them.

The Russian state tourism agency also warned Russians to stay away from the UK, amid claims that the deployment of a dirty bomb is being organized to create the next level of “chaos and destruction” in a major British city.

The Russian embassy in Great Britain recommends Russian citizens refrain from travelling to the country, especially from visiting major cities, if such trips are not absolutely necessary.

This is due to the fact that the government of Great Britain has raised the level of the terrorist threat in the country to the maximum possible.

With France in a state of emergency, the United Kingdom under martial law with thousands of troops patrolling the streets, and Germany and Sweden suffering migrant-related breakdowns of law and order, it is hard to argue with Putin.

The New World Order’s plan to fill Western nations with radical Islamic immigrants – against the will of the citizens of these countries – and then unleash hell on earth by “poking them“, has been achieved.

Putin believes that the open border policies forced on European nations by elite globalists must be rejected if the continent is to have any chance of a peaceful future.

My European brothers and sisters must reject the globalist open border policies being pushed onto them by the elite.

ISIS Crumble Under Syrian And Russian Army – Media Blackout

Russian and Syrian military personnel killed scores of ISIS militants on Wednesday amid a total mainstream media blackout in the West.

Russian and Syrian military personnel killed scores of ISIS militants on Wednesday amid a total mainstream media blackout in the West.

According to military sources in Deir Ez Zour, ISIS militants attempted to carry out an assault in the surrounding areas of the graveyards and Al Muwazafin neighborhood in Deir Ez Zour city.

Fort-russ.com reports: However, their attempts were thwarted by units of the Syrian Army. 28 terrorists were killed and at least 30 were left wounded, in addition to destruction of a tank, 2 BMPs, 2 vehicles equipped with 23 mm machine-guns, all of which belonged to ISIS.

A booby trapped bulldozer was seized by the army.

Later, army units, backed by the Syrian Air Force, engaged in fierce clashes with ISIS terrorists after they attacked army checkpoints in the surrounding areas of of Deir Ez Zour Airport and Liwa Al Tamin, killing more than 20 terrorists.

New progress was reported in the eastern countryside of Aleppo province.

Earlier on Wednesday, Tiger Forces special units managed to liberate the villages of Jirah Kabir and Daroubiyah.

This is a very important achievement as it means that the Syrian Army already entered the northern part of strategically important Maskanah Plains that link the provinces of Aleppo and Raqqah, following its withdrawal from the area back in the Summer of 2012.

Putin’s “bizarre” offer to Congress has liberals FURIOUS

Source: Horn News

Russia dictator Vladimir Putin just made an unusual offer Wednesday to the U.S. Congress — and it has liberals very nervous.

Putin has come forward and said he’d turn over to Congress records of President Donald Trump’s discussions with Russian diplomats in which Trump is said to have disclosed classified information.

His offer added a bizarre twist to the furor over Trump’s intelligence disclosures — and one that could destroy the liberal narrative.

The White House has played down the importance and secrecy of the information Trump gave to the Russians, which had been supplied by Israel under an intelligence-sharing agreement. Trump himself said he had “an absolute right” as president to share “facts pertaining to terrorism” and airline safety with Russia.

Putin told a news conference that he would be willing to turn over notes of Trump’s meeting with the Russian diplomats if the White House agreed. He dismissed outrage over Trump’s disclosures as U.S. politicians whipping up “anti-Russian sentiment.”

Asked what he thinks of Trump presidency, Putin said it’s up to the American people to judge but his performance can only be rated “only when he’s allowed to work at full capacity,” implying that someone is hampering Trump’s efforts.

The intense attacks from the left come as Trump is set to embark Friday on his first foreign trip, which had been optimistically viewed by some aides as an opportunity to reset an administration besieged by leftist propoganda.

The administration spent the first half of Tuesday defending Trump’s disclosure of classified information to senior Russian officials from the mainstream media. National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster said the president’s comments were “wholly appropriate.” He used that phrase repeatedly in his briefing to reporters.

Donald Trump Defends Right to Share Classified Intel with Russia

President Donald Trump responded to the leaked news that he had shared intelligence about Islamic State terrorists during a meeting with the Russian foreign minister and ambassador.

“I have been asking Director Comey & others, from the beginning of my administration, to find the LEAKERS in the intelligence community,” he wrote on Twitter, suggesting that the former FBI director’s failure was one of the reasons why he was fired.

Democrats and the media reacted hysterically to the news, after intelligence officials revealed details about Trump’s discussion with the Russians in the Oval Office. The information pertained to details of the ongoing fight with the ISIS terrorist threat.

“As President I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do, facts pertaining to terrorism and airline flight safety,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Humanitarian reasons, plus I want Russia to greatly step up their fight against ISIS & terrorism.”

 

An official speaking to the Washington Post said that Trump “revealed more information to the Russian ambassador than we have shared with our own allies.”

Why America Should Fear Russia’s Very Own ‘Tomahawk’ Cruise Missile

Though Russia still produces other types of naval cruise missiles, the Kalibr nonetheless appears set to remain the mainstay of Russian long-range naval strike capabilities for years to come. The land-attack version, in theory, offers similar performance to the U.S. Tomahawk, while the antiship variant’s terminal supersonic sprint may make it a deadlier weapon at sea. Though the Russian Navy lags far behind the U.S. Navy in regards to numbers of ships, its ability to deploy effective long-range weapons on low-displacement boats should also give U.S. naval planners much to think about.

Since the early 1990s, the United States has launched hundreds of Tomahawk cruise missiles from warships and submarines to strike at targets in the Middle East, North Africa, the former Yugoslavia and Afghanistan. Cruising at around 550 miles per hour—roughly the speed of an airliner—Tomahawks can strike targets more than one thousand miles away, making them a popular, though expensive, means of projecting firepower without putting U.S. troops in harm’s way.

However, the United States and the United Kingdom—which also deploys Tomahawks—are no longer the only nations waging long-range cruise-missile warfare.

On October 7, the Russian Gepard-class frigate Dagestan and three small Buyan-class corvettes sailing in the Caspian Sea unleashed a volley of twenty-six Kalibr cruise missiles from their Vertical Launch Systems. The nine-meter long missiles soared nine hundred miles over Iranian and Iraqi territory before slamming into targets into eleven targets in Syria, hitting a mix of ISIS fighters and Free Syrian Army rebels. Although Pentagon sources allege that four of the missiles fell off course and crashed in Iran—inflicting casualties on the Iranian cow population—it was still a demonstration of a long-range strike capability that few countries have used in action.

Following another volley of eighteen Kalibr missiles from the Dagestan task force in November, on December 9, 2015 the improved Kilo-class diesel submarine Rostov-na-Donu launched its own salvo of Kalibr missiles at targets in Syria, marking the combat debut of the modern Russian submarine force. In 2016, Russian frigates in the Mediterranean hammered Aleppo and Idlib with at least three additional cruise-missile volleys.

Russian attack planes were already operating over Syria at the time of the first strike in 2015, and could easily have launched air attacks against those targets at much lower cost. However, by showing off its long-range naval strike capabilities, Moscow not only advertised its technological prowess, but literally advertised the Kalibr missiles capabilities to foreign buyers—who can opt to purchase a shorter-range variant known as the Klub missile.

There are well over a dozen different variants in the Kalibr missile family, varying in launch platform, range, target profile and speed, varying in length from six to nine meters, but all packing a 990-pound warhead or a nuclear payload. The antiship variants—designated the SS-N-27 Sizzler by NATO, or the 3M54T or 3M54K for the ship- and submarine-launched versions respectively—have shorter range, estimated between 270 and 410 miles, and are designed to skim low over the sea to avoid detection. Benefitting from vector-thrust nozzles on the ship-launched versions, the active-radar homing Kalibr missiles are also designed to perform evasive maneuvers instead of making a straight-line approach. As they close within short range of an enemy ship, the missiles accelerate from their cruising speed of Mach 0.8 to Mach 3, and descend to just 4.6 meters in altitudes—making them extremely difficult for a ship’s antimissile defenses to shoot down.

The land attack variants, the 3M14T and 3M14K (NATO designation SS-N-30A), appear to lack the boost to Mach 3 on terminal approach. In compensation, the inertia-guided missiles have a range of between one thousand and 1,500 miles. A third class of Kalibr missiles—the 91RT and 91RE—is used to deploy antisubmarine torpedoes to ranges of around thirty miles.

Kalibr missiles are currently deployed on Russian Navy Kilo-class submarines, as well as more modern types including the Akula, Lada and Yasen classes. They are also deployed on frigates and corvettes—but so far haven’t been fitted on larger vessels, though such upgrades may eventually take place. While a Russian Gepard-class frigate is armed with only eight Kalibr missiles, a missile-armed destroyer would be able to carry dozens.

On the other hand, Russia has demonstrated that it can use numerous small vessels to deploy a powerful long-range weapon, an example of a “distributed” force structure. The idea is that in an age of increasingly lethal and longer-range missiles, it may be wiser to spread out firepower across multiple smaller and expendable platforms, rather than put all the eggs in one large, expensive and vulnerable basket. The U.S. Navy’s own attempts at a more distributed force structure through the Littoral Combat Ship program have so far encountered serious teething issues, and the frigate-sized LCSs currently lack weapons as powerful as the Kalibr missiles on smaller Russian corvettes.

The Klub export variants all have their ranges downgraded to between 140 and 190 miles, so as to comply with the Missile Technology Control Regime, which forbids export of cruise missiles with ranges exceeding three hundred kilometers. Klub missiles are now deployed on Kilo-class submarines in the navies of China, India, Algeria, Vietnam and possibly Iran, as well as India’s six Talwar-class frigates. China also has developed the longer-range YJ-18 cruise missile, which is thought to be a partial copy of the Klub.

Furthermore, an air launched version of the Klub missiles is being developed for use on the Tu-142 maritime patrol planes operated by Russia and the Indian Air Force. Ground-launched antiship versions have also been demonstrated—notably one that could be concealed in an innocuous-looking shipping container. This Klub-K variant could be carried on a civilian train, cargo freighter or truck, rendering the prospect of identifying and destroying the weapon from afar a difficult one. However, there are no confirmed operators of these system as of yet.

Though Russia still produces other types of naval cruise missiles, the Kalibr nonetheless appears set to remain the mainstay of Russian long-range naval strike capabilities for years to come. The land-attack version, in theory, offers similar performance to the U.S. Tomahawk, while the antiship variant’s terminal supersonic sprint may make it a deadlier weapon at sea. Though the Russian Navy lags far behind the U.S. Navy in regards to numbers of ships, its ability to deploy effective long-range weapons on low-displacement boats should also give U.S. naval planners much to think about.

Russia Will Launch Military Drills To Destroy NATO Within 48 Hours

Russia to launch military drills that could destroy NATO within 48 hours

Russian President Vladimir Putin has organized a series of military drills later this summer that he says will enable Russia to destroy NATO within 48 hours.

In response to Canada deploying troops to Latvia as part of a NATO plan to increase a Western military presence along the Russian border, Moscow has hit back with a plan that will put NATO’s efforts to shame.

Orrazz.com reports:

Latvian ambassador to Canada Karlis Eihenbaums said Friday that his nation, which has previously expressed concern about Russian military activity in Europe’s Baltic region, was particularly on edge ahead of its neighbor’s quadrennial defense maneuvers called Zapad, or “West,” due to be held in August and September.

Eihenbaums said the drills, which date back to the Soviet period, have left Latvia uneasy in past years, but that this year’s exercise would be especially concerning given the dueling military buildup that has occurred between NATO and Russia in the past few years.

“You cannot feel safe,” Eihenbaums told CBC News.

Canada has already begun sending vehicles and equipment to Latvia, which was designated by NATO last year as one of four battle groups to which the multinational force would devote its resources.

In addition to Latvia, the groups also include fellow Baltic states Estonia and Lithuania as well as Poland. Canada is set to send the first of 450 soldiers to Latvia next month and will be joined by forces from NATO allies Albania, Italy, Poland, Slovenia and Spain. About 1,200 troops in all will be stationed in Latvia, with an additional 800 more in Estonia, 1,200 in Lithuania and 4,000 in Poland. Despite this escalation, however, NATO’s moves have been described as merely a “tripwire” to Russia.

Russia already maintains a force numbering tens of thousands of troops at strategic border points in the region. In 2016, the Rand Corporation ran an analysis of multiple conflict scenarios and found that “across multiple plays of the game, Russian forces eliminated or bypassed all resistance and were at the gates of or actually entering Riga, Tallinn, or both, between 36 and 60 hours after the start of hostilities.”

Russia has since announced wide-ranging initiatives to expand and modernize its defense capabilities, including more powerful submarines, more sophisticated missile defense systems and the creation of a service branch dedicated specifically to electronic warfare. This year’s Zapad drills were set to see from 70,000 to 100,000 Russian troops join their Belarussian allies for a simulated battle with NATO forces, according to Russia’s state-run Sputnik News.

Secretary of Defense James Mattis said Wednesday during a trip to Lithuania, which will host a German-led NATO battalion, that Russia’s buildup was “destabilizing” and stated NATO would maintain a defensive posture.

U.S. officials had earlier suggested that the Pentagon may authorize the deployment of a Patriot missile defense system to the region in preparation for Russian missile movements across the border, but Mattis and Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite declined to comment specifically on the potential installation.

Both the U.S. and Russia have accused the other of trying to provoke a military showdown in Europe, but neither has expressed a willingness to engage the other in combat. After suffering a political falling out earlier this month over opposing policies toward war in Syria, the White House and the Kremlin have attempted to mend their political relationship, which suffered significantly under former President Barack Obama.

However, a series of scandals and investigations centering around connections between the administration of President Donald Trump and Russia have left many U.S. officials suspicious of Moscow’s intentions. Russia denies interfering in U.S. politics and has called on Washington to restore relations between the world’s two foremost military powers.

Trump met with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov Wednesday to discuss the countries’ positions on international affairs and Russian presidential aide Yury Ushakov called on the U.S. Friday to “normalize the Russia-U.S. relations,” according to Russia’s Sputnik News.

Russian Lt. Gen.: US Wants to Nuke Russia, China And Use Missile Shield to Prevent Retaliation

Of course, it’s completely psychotic to want to launch a preemptive nuclear strike on Russia or China

Russian Lt. Gen.: US Wants to Nuke Russia, China And Use Missile Shield to Prevent Retaliation

Chris Menahan Information Liberation

According to Russian Lieutenant General Viktor Poznikhir, the US is surrounding Russia and China with missile defense systems in order to launch a “sudden nuclear strike” and prevent any retaliation. 

The US has said recently it’s installing anti-ballistic missile systems in Poland and Romania to prevent Iran from attacking Europe and in South Korea to prevent North Korea from attacking South Korea and Japan.

Poznikhir is suggesting the real reason for these systems is to allow the US to launch a nuclear strike on Russia or China and prevent either nation from retaliating, as their own nuclear missiles would be shot down by the US government’s ABM systems — at least in a best case scenario.

From RT:

The United States is pursuing global strategic domination through developing anti-ballistic missile systems capable of a sudden disarming strike against Russia and China, according to the deputy head of operations of the Russian General Staff.

There is an obvious link between Washington’s prompt global strike initiative, which seeks capability to engage “any targets anywhere in the world within one hour of the decision,” and the deployment of missile launch systems in Europe and aboard naval vessels across the globe, Lt. Gen. Viktor Poznikhir said at a news briefing on Wednesday.

“The presence of US missile defense bases in Europe, missile defense vessels in seas and oceans close to Russia creates a powerful covert strike component for conducting a sudden nuclear missile strike against the Russian Federation,” Poznikhir explained.

While the US keeps claiming that its missile defenses are seeking to mitigate threats from rogue states, the results of computer simulations confirm that the Pentagon’s installations are directed against Russia and China, according to Poznikhir.

American missile attack warning systems, he said, cover all possible trajectories of Russian ballistic missiles flying toward the United States, and are only expected to get more advanced as new low-orbit satellites complement the existing radar systems.

“Applying sudden disarming strikes targeting Russian or Chinese strategic nuclear forces significantly increases the efficiency of the US missile defense system,” Poznikhir added.

American ABM systems are not only creating an “illusion” of safety from a retaliatory strike but can themselves be used to launch a sneak nuclear attack on Russia.

In a blatant breach of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, the standard land-based launching systems can be covertly rearmed with Tomahawk cruise missiles instead of interceptors – and the Pentagon’s denial of this fact, according to Poznikhir, is “at the very least unconvincing.”

Moreover, Washington’s unilateral withdrawal from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty, signed in 1972 with the Soviet Union, allowed it to develop more advanced weapons that can now not only pose a threat to targets on the ground but in space as well.

“In February 2008, the Pentagon demonstrated the possibility of engaging spacecraft with its ABM capabilities,” Poznikhir said. “An American satellite at an altitude of about 250 km was destroyed by a Standard-3 missile, an earlier modification, launched from a US Navy destroyer.”

“Given the global nature of the ABM ships’ deployment, the space operations of any state, including the Russian Federation and the People’s Republic of China, are under threat.”

Russia has repeatedly voiced its concerns over the risk American ABM systems pose to the global balance of power and thus peace and stability, but has consistently been sidelined.

“Within the framework of cooperation, we also proposed jointly to develop a missile defense architecture for Europe, which could guarantee security against the impacts of nonstrategic ballistic missiles,” said Poznikhir.

“However, all Russian initiatives were rejected.”

“In this regard, Russia is compelled to take measures aimed at maintaining the balance of strategic arms and minimizing the possible damage to national security as a result of the United States’ ABM systems expansion.”

“This will not make the world a safer place,” he warned, urging Washington to engage in a constructive dialogue instead of dully repeating that the systems are not aimed at undermining Russia’s or China’s national security.

Seems like a very reasonable theory.

Of course, it’s completely psychotic to want to launch a preemptive nuclear strike on Russia or China and hope you can shoot down every last one of their thousands of nuclear missiles just to maintain US dominance over the world, but the neocons controlling our foreign policy are insane.
