Europe is thus being turned by the U.S. into the front line of a nuclear confrontation with Russia, even more dangerous than that of the Cold War.

“Production of the B61-12 nuclear bomb begins,” Sandia National Laboratories announced from the United States. The B61-12, which replaces the previous B61 deployed by the U.S. at Aviano and Ghedi and other European bases, is a new type of weapon. It has a nuclear warhead with four power options, selectable depending on the target to be destroyed. It is not dropped vertically, but at a distance from the target on which it is directed guided by a satellite system. It can penetrate underground, exploding deep to destroy command center bunkers in a nuclear first strike.

The B61-12s, classified as “non-strategic nuclear weapons,” are deployed in Europe — in Italy, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Britain and probably other countries — at distances far enough to strike Russia. They thus have offensive capabilities similar to those of strategic weapons.

Another nuclear weapon system, which the United States is preparing to install in Europe against Russia, is ground-based intermediate-range missiles. They can also be launched from “anti-missile shield” installations, deployed by the U.S. at bases in Deveselu in Romania and Redzikowo in Poland, and aboard five warships cruising in the Mediterranean, Black Sea and Baltic Sea close to Russia.

That such installations have offensive capabilities is confirmed by Lockheed Martin itself. Outlining the characteristics of the Mk 41 vertical launch system, used in both land and naval installations, it specifies that it is capable of launching “missiles for all missions, both defense and long-range attack, including Tomahawk cruise missiles.” These can be armed with nuclear warheads.

Europe is thus being turned by the U.S. into the front line of a nuclear confrontation with Russia, even more dangerous than that of the Cold War.

Life as We Know it Will End With an Attack on Iran – garydbarnett.com

Posted by M. C. on December 2, 2019

Already, the claims about accuracy (three times more accurate) are being publicized, but one very important piece of information is left out of this conversation. The nuclear bombs that destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki were 15 and 21 kilotons respectively, but this new bomb can be “dialed up” to as high as 50 kilotons

Remember during desert storm we were told those laser guided bombs were 80% accurate then years later you found the number was really 20%. This has been going on for a long time.

Don’t believe what government tells you.

So with hindsight it appears that the Norden bombsight was as good as the British and German equivalents, but in practice was not the miraculous leap forward it was thought to be.

It did prove that Carl Norden was a superb salesman.

It is Black Friday weekend, the most important event for most Americans who have lost all contact with sanity. While hordes of braindead Americans shop till they drop, with no other worries except getting a fraudulent deal or zoning out on their smart phones, the world is becoming a much more dangerous place. So dangerous in fact, that everyone on earth could be affected when the levee breaks.

As Karen Kwiatkowski, a retired USAF lieutenant colonel, noted today at LewRockwell.com, “the US will be conducting a nuclear first strike on Iran in the near future using these.” “An Air Force B-2 stealth bomber just completed the first test drop of an advanced nuclear gravity bomb, Military.com reported on June 30. The B-61-12 gravity bomb, a GPS-guided behemoth that’s been in development since 2008, can penetrate three meters of earth before detonating and dial up a nuclear yield of between 0.3 kilotons and 50 kilotons of devastating power.”

My perspective here is that part of the reason this bomb was built was to put a different spin on a nuclear weapons first strike, and one that could be sold to the public. This is my opinion mind you, but it is realistic in a very sick and demented way. It boils down to marketing death.

I can imagine the propaganda campaign to fool the ignorant and gullible nationalist American into accepting yet another bloodthirsty war of aggression. This bomb is stated to be able to have pinpoint accuracy, with the ability to take out a targeted bunker. As reported by Task & Purpose, “The gravity bomb touts new components and an enhanced tail for maneuvering to target, and the new upgrades were designed to make the weapon three times more accurate. And while it’s extremely unlikely that the Air Force will need to violently renovate an underground enemy command bunker anytime soon, but better to be safe than sorry when it comes to nuclear capabilities.”

Already, the claims about accuracy (three times more accurate) are being publicized, but one very important piece of information is left out of this conversation. The nuclear bombs that destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki were 15 and 21 kilotons respectively, but this new bomb can be “dialed up” to as high as 50 kilotons. This is a nuclear weapon with the potential of two to three times the power of the bombs used to destroy two large cities in Japan in 1945. It is also important to note that multiple gravity bombs could be deployed at once.

Be very aware and very afraid of any false reasoning (propaganda) claiming that Iran is an imminent threat, but that with smart nuclear bombs, the damage can be limited to targeted areas. If sold to the public as necessary for “national defense,” it will be a lie. But in this case, it could cause devastation at many levels worldwide, from economic, to famine, to deadly sickness, and to the death of millions of innocents.

The U.S. controllers and hawks want war with Iran, and Iran has not aggressively attacked anyone in hundreds of years, and does not have nuclear capability. Iran is no threat whatsoever to the U.S., but the U.S. is a horrible threat to Iran and the rest of the world. This continued lead up to a nuclear war by the United States if attempted, will end life as we know it on this planet. This American empire of death, destruction, and world domination has to be stopped now or nuclear world war could be our destiny!

They May not Have Compared Him to Truman for Nothing! – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on November 30, 2019

The latest visit by Chemical Gina to the Saudi King Salman, apparently reminding him they had the dirt on him (and for all we know, may have assisted) with Kashoggi’s murder tells me that US forces will stay in the region until they are done, or done for.

As we worry over domestic stupidity and real threats to our rights at home, living in and under a whack-a-mole surveillance state that pops up everywhere and never shrinks, in the face of an impeachment and re-election crisis in 2020, it is important that all Americans realize that the US will be conducting a nuclear first strike on Iran in the near future using these.  It doesn’t matter that Trump ran on a constitutionally aligned foreign policy of non-intervention.  He may or may not be in charge of the machine.  Our CIA has been quite effective in Bolivia and the Ukraine, somewhat in Bolivia and Chile, not very in Hong Kong, and sloppily murderous in Syria and Libya.  But the apple of the CIA eye is the war that will both consolidate state power everywhere and finally as an afterword, explode the US empire, a war currently being made on Iran.

The latest visit by Chemical Gina to the Saudi King Salman, apparently reminding him they had the dirt on him (and for all we know, may have assisted) with Kashoggi’s murder tells me that US forces will stay in the region until they are done, or done for. I don’t know if Trump’s largely failed attempts to bring troops home or his more successful efforts to fire his security and DoD team one by one are being done to prep for a bigger fight, or as a way of slowing the roll.

There are structural barriers to this coming US attack from the Gulf Cooperation Council itself, from a possible disruption of Netanyahu’s grip on power, or a happy accident that reduces the US military footprint around the world.  The US stands for nothing cohesive, nothing constitutional, and nothing good in the Middle East.  It’s frightening that only Trump’s mood (or the deep state’s perception of his grip on power) on a given day stands in the way of the second US first use of nuclear weapons against a weak economically battered and poorly led country that all the right people love to hate.

Are You Ready to Die? – PaulCraigRoberts.org

Posted by M. C. on May 13, 2017

http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2017/05/11/are-you-ready-to-die/

On April 26—16 days ago—Lt. Gen. Viktor Poznihir, Deputy Chief of the Main Operations Directorate of the Russian Armed Forces, stated at the Moscow International Security Conference that the Operations Command of the Russian General Staff has concluded that Washington is preparing a nuclear first strike on Russia.

The Times-Gazett in Ashland, Ohio, was the only US print media that a Google search could turn up that reported this most alarming of all announcements. A Google search turned up no reports on US TV, and none on Canadian, Australian, European, or any other media except RT and Internet sites.

I have been unable to find any report that any US Senator or Representative or any European, Canadian, or Australian politician has raised a voice of concern.

Washington and it’s media fancy lady are keeping us dumb. It appears to be an easy job. Except when it comes to you and me.
