(The chart above shows the nuclear weapon stockpiles of the U.S. versus Russia.)
Russia currently has a nuclear stockpile of 14,000 warheads versus 5,400 for the U.S., and that's based upon stated arsenal comparisons where Washington is likely being far more honest than Moscow.
And while America has effectively mothballed its capacity for building nuclear weapons since the 'end' of the Cold War, Russia has maintained its capacity to develop nukes and has a threatening "breakout capability":
The substantial capabilities of the Russian warhead production complex have been of concern to some U.S. policymakers and nuclear weapons experts. The Russian complex is very large relative both to the U.S. complex and to the projected size of Russia’s nuclear weapons stockpile. Because of manufacturing and technology problems that limit the lifetime of Russian warheads to 10-15 years and because of stockpile management practices that emphasize routine rebuilding of nuclear warheads, the Russian complex also maintains high levels of production. The fear, then, is that Russia could use its large and active production infrastructure to offset arms reductions by quickly building new nuclear warheads in large numbers—that it has a “breakout capability.” Russia’s secretive nuclear weapons policies and uncertainties about the technical capabilities and operational practices of its nuclear weapons complex further exacerbate these fears.
Meanwhile, Moscow has been continuously pumping billions upon billions of purportedly scarce rubles into nuclear war defenses like Yamantau Mountain, a super-bunker the size of the Washington D.C. Beltway being built under the Ural Mountains.
By waging a false peace over the last 20+ years, the Russians have achieved a substantial nuclear war-fighting advantage over America.
The situation is as it is because nuclear war is 'unthinkable' in America but the focal point of global military strategy for Russia....an enemy most appreciative of our willful ignorance on this matter.
"War to the hilt between communism and capitalism is inevitable. Today, of course, we are not strong enough to attack. Our time will come in 20 to 30 years. To win, we shall need the element of surprise. The bourgeoisie will have to be put to sleep. So we shall begin by launching the most spectacular peace movement on record. There will be electrifying overtures and unheard-of concessions. The capitalist countries, stupid and decadent, will rejoice to cooperate in their own destruction. They will leap at another chance to be friends. As soon as their guard is down, we shall smash them with our clenched fist." - Dimitry Z. Manuilsky, Soviet Chairman of United Nations Security Council, 1949
"There is profound error and harm in the disoriented claims of bourgeois ideologues that there will be no victor in a thermonuclear world war." - A. S. Milovidov, Russian Military Strategist
Is it any wonder that the British and French parliaments unanimously endorsed the Munich Accord, which Neville Chamberlain proclaimed meant 'peace for our time', with Hitler on the eve of World War II?
The West is its own worst enemy in many ways. The insistence of our people to cooperate in their own mass murder is sickening and sad.
Those still conscious of reality are left with little option but to evacuate the West or somehow prepare for surviving a nuclear holocaust:
And so it is.
Rather than try to deal with and correct the situation, people today follow after misleaders rather than leaders. Americans want to be misled in an ill-fated hope to maintain their self-delusions and false sense of security because they can't handle the truth and consequences of their unrighteousness.
When confronted with a choice between a known American hero in the war against communism (and devout Christian) and a likely actual communist (of Arab descent with signs of Islamic leanings), the American people chose the communist as their President and Commander-in-Chief:
Now someone who is likely not a natural born American citizen and who likely never registered for the military draft, in other words a candidate that was not even qualified to be President of the United States and Commander-in-Chief in the first place, is about to be the leader of the Free World.
As has been maintained in this blog for some time now, Americans have become selfish, arrogant and foolish beyond all reason leading our society headlong toward collective suicide....and not in some metaphorical sense.
Yet, most of those left standing after the radioactive dust settles will still be wondering what happened.
Is it not obvious?
"The coming of the lawless one by the activity of Satan will be with all power and with pretended signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are to perish, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. Therefore God sends upon them a strong delusion, to make them believe what is false, so that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness." [2 Thessalonians 2:9-12]
Clearly, man's judgment is misled while God's judgment is sound.
When there's a chemical missile attack on Israel, know that the war is here as I've foreseen.
