Ready For Nuclear War?

attention to Steven Starr’s guest column, “The
Lethality of Nuclear Weapons.”
Washington thinks nuclear war can be won and is
planning for a first strike on Russia, and perhaps
China, in order to prevent any challenge to
Washington’s world hegemony.
The plan is
far advanced, and the implementation of the plan is
underway. As I have reported previously, US
strategic doctrine was changed and the role of
nuclear missiles was elevated from a retaliatory
role to an offensive first strike role. US
anti-ballistic missile (ABM) bases have been
established in Poland on Russia’s frontier, and
other bases are planned. When completed Russia will
be ringed with US missile bases.
Anti-ballistic missiles, known as “star wars,” are
weapons designed to intercept and destroy ICBMs. In
Washington’s war doctrine, the US hits Russia with a
first strike, and whatever retaliatory force Russia
might have remaining is prevented from reaching the
US by the shield of ABMs.
Washington gave for the change in war doctrine is
the possibility that terrorists might obtain a
nuclear weapon with which to destroy an American
city. This explanation is nonsensical. Terrorists
are individuals or a group of individuals, not a
country with a threatening military. To use nuclear
weapons against terrorists would destroy far more
than the terrorists and be pointless as a drone with
a conventional missile would suffice.
Washington gave for the ABM base in Poland is to
protect Europe from Iranian ICBMs. Washington and
every European government knows that Iran has no
ICBMs and that Iran has not indicated any intent to

government realizes that Washington’s reasons are

government understands that the change in US war
doctrine and the US ABM bases on its borders are
directed at Russia and are indications that
Washington plans a first strike with nuclear weapons
also understood that Washington has similar
intentions toward China. As I reported several
months ago, in response to Washington’s threat China
called the world’s attention to China’s ability to
destroy the US should Washington initiate such a
Washington believes that it can win a nuclear war
with little or no damage to the US. This belief
makes nuclear war likely.
Starr makes clear, this belief is based in
ignorance. Nuclear war has no winner. Even if US
cities were saved from retaliation by ABMs, the
radiation and nuclear winter effects of the weapons
that hit Russia and China would destroy the US as
conveniently concentrated into a few hands during
the corrupt Clinton regime, is complicit by ignoring
the issue. The governments of Washington’s vassal
states in Western and Eastern Europe, Canada,
Australia, and Japan are also complicit, because
they accept Washington’s plan and provide the bases
for implementing it. The demented Polish government
has probably signed the death warrant for humanity.
The US Congress is complicit, because no hearings
are held about the executive branch’s plans for
initiating nuclear war.
has created a dangerous situation. As Russia and
China are clearly threatened with a first strike,
they might decide to strike first themselves. Why
should Russia and China sit and await the inevitable
while their adversary creates the ability to protect
itself by developing its ABM shield? Once Washington
completes the shield, Russia and China are certain
to be attacked, unless they surrender in advance.
10 minute report below from Russia Today makes it
clear that Washington’s secret plan for a first
strike on Russia is not secret. The report also
makes it clear that Washington is prepared to
eliminate any European leaders who do not align with

will ask me, “What can we do?” This is what you can
do. You can shut down the Ministry of Propaganda by
turning off Fox News, CNN, the BBC, ABC, NBC, CBS,
by ceasing to read the New York Times, the
Washington Post, the LA Times. Simply exit the
official media. Do not believe one word that the
government says. Do not vote. Realize that evil is
concentrated in Washington. In the 21st century
Washington has destroyed in whole or part seven
countries. Millions of peoples murdered, maimed,
displaced, and Washington has shown no remorse
whatsoever. Neither have the “christian” churches.
The devastation that Washington has inflicted is
portrayed as a great success. Washington prevailed.

Washington represents is leading the world to
