US activates first missile defense shield in Romania; Russia is livid

US missile defense shield goes live in Europe

US activates first missile defense shield in Romania; Russia is livid.

On Thursday, the United States activated its missile defense system in Romania. The $800 million dollar system is the first of its kind in Europe, and aims to defend the US and Europe from, “rogue states,” namely, Iran.

Russia, however, insists that the US aim is to neutralize Moscow’s nuclear arsenal long enough for the US to strike Russia.

According to Putin, “This is not a defense system. This is part of U.S. nuclear strategic potential brought onto a periphery. In this case, Eastern Europe is such periphery.” He also said that the missile shield was, “yet another step to rock international security and start a new arms race.”

Apparently, the Kemlin has viewed this project all along as a threat to its own national security, and says that steps are being taken to ensure Russia’s safety, no matter what. Though Russia refuses to be drawn into another arms race, it is rearming and rebuilding its army and navy in a way that will, “uphold the current strategic balance of forces.”

The new missile shield system is capable of shooting down rockets meant to reach major European cities. This missile shiled is meant to stretch from Greenland to the Azores. It is expected to be ready by the end of 2018.

Similar to Israel’s Iron Dome, Romania’s new missile shield relies on radars to detect the launch of a ballistic missile into space. Sensors then measure the rocket’s trajectory and fire an interceptor missile, destroying the offending missile while it is in space, and before it re-enters the earth’s atmosphere. The interceptor missiles can be fired from the ground or from ships.

Chairman of the State Duma’s defense committee, Admiral Vladimir Komoyedov, claimed that the missile defense site is a threat to Russia.

“They are moving to the firing line. This is not just 100; it’s 200, 300, 1,000% aimed against us,” Komoyedov said.

It is not clear what Russia’s response will be. It is speculated that Russia will place missiles capable of carrying missiles in Kaliningrad.

The United States and NATO insist that this shield is not meant for use against Russia, but against countries in the Middle East.

    World On Brink After Obama Activates Missile Shield, Prepares Weapons For Space

    By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers

    In one of the most grim and foreboding reports ever issued by the Security Council (SC), Kremlin experts today are warning that the entire world now “stands on the brink” after the Obama regime, yesterday, stood alone against all humanity and singlehandedly blocked the United Nations resolution against sending weapons into space, and an hour later activated for the first time in history its “missile shield” on Russia’s border. [Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes in this report are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]

    With the Obama regime rejecting the United Nations “last chance for peace” and activating its missile shield against the Federation, this report says, President Putin stated “this is not a defense system—this is part of US nuclear strategic potential brought onto a periphery, in this case, Eastern Europe is such periphery and yet another step to rock international security” while the Chairman of the State Duma’s defense committee, Admiral Vladimir Komoyedov, warned “they [the Obama regime] are moving to the firing line–this is not just 100; it’s 200, 300, 1,000% aimed against us”.

    Prompting the Obama regime to push the entire world to the brink of war, this report continues, is the United States catastrophic failure to capture the Republic of Syria in the Levant War Zone so it can be used by Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States to build gas pipelines to Europe in order to financially collapse Russia who is that continents largest supplier of fuel.

    With the Obama regime losing their Syrian war while being aided by some of the most radical Islamic terrorists in the world, this report notes, on 9 September they reached an agreement with the Federation to allow much needed humanitarian aid into the besieged city of Aleppo, but 8 days later, on 17 September, attacked Syrian government troops with an over hour long aerial bombardment killing 62 of them, and wounding over 100 more, who were assuring that no weapons were allowed in.

    After the Obama regimes deliberate killing of these Syrian government soldiers protecting the citizens of Aleppo, this report continues, the American’s, on 18 September, then sent one of their Predator Drones to attack the humanitarian aid convoy sent to these people—and which 3 days later, on 21 September, Russian warships retaliated against by firing three Caliber missiles at the foreign officers’ coordination operations room in Dar Ezza region in the Western part of Aleppo near Sam’an mountain killing, at least, 30 US backed intelligence officers.

    In having to explain to the US Congress the Obama regimes complete failure in Syria, this report says, yesterday Defense Secretary Ash Carter and General Joseph Dunford, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, faced the Senate Armed Services Committee where they were prodded to immediately establish a no-fly zone over Syria so the Americans could “kill at will”—but were starkly replied to by General Dunford who rightly told them: “Right now… for us to control all of the airspace in Syria would require us to go to war against Syria and Russia”.

    As if on cue after General Dunford gave this warning, this report notes, the Obama regime became the only nation in the world to block the UN resolution preventing weapons in space, while forcing Israel, Georgia and Ukraine to abstain (all of whom received massive US weapons deals) and then activated his missile shield against the Federation—and which the Federation had previously warned would mean nuclear war.

    To why the Obama regime blocked this “last chance for peace” UN resolution to keep weapons from being deployed in space, this report explains, is due to “critical advances” the US has made in space based weapons over the past year—and that last year President Obama shockingly allocated $5 billion for developing.

    For how absolutely terrifying Obama’s new space weapons are for the Federation, this report notes, has been detailed by many experts, one of whom has described them:

    “In a near-future war, 1,000 missiles scream toward Russia at Mach 20. Each one a pinpoint strike hitting the Kremlin’s nuclear missiles, military radars, submarine bases—you name it.

    Within minutes, 80 percent of Russia’s nuclear arsenal is destroyed without the United States launching a single nuclear weapon of its own. Russia’s military networks are blind, the nation’s ability to strike back eliminated or severely degraded.

    The incoming missiles were no ordinary weapons, but hypersonic glide vehicles developed largely in secret under the US Prompt Global Strike program. They travel so fast, shooting them down is effectively impossible.”

    Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov slammed the Obama regime this past year for creating their missile defense systems and developing the Prompt Global Strike (PGS) space based weapons system, this report says its important to note, and further warned the Americans “we are very concerned about the prospect of moving an arms race to the space field and insist on the need for a legally binding document, which would prohibit the deployment of shock weapons systems in the outer space”—but which yesterday President Obama rejected.

    With President Putin having correctly stated that the Federation could “destroy America in half an hour or less”, this report concludes, the American people themselves are being kept deliberately unaware of how close total war is by their Obama regime supporting propaganda media—but can’t said of American experts such as former Reagan administration official Paul Craig Roberts who recently warned that the US is “a dead nation walking” and Princeton Professor Julian Zelizer warning this week that “something shocking” is set to rock the presidential race and that “we should all hold on to our seats” in anticipation of an October surprise that could take the form of a national security crisis—which a world war most certainly would be.

    US blocks Russia’s draft resolution on non-deployment of arms in space — diplomat

    Four countries – the United States, Israel, Georgia and Ukraine – voted against that resolution

    MOSCOW, September 23. /TASS/. The United States is in fact the sole state that blocks progress on the issue of not being the first to deploy weapons in space, the deputy director of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s non-proliferation and weapons control department, Vladimir Yermakov, told a news conference on Friday.

    As the diplomat recalled, in 2014 Russia presented to the UN General Assembly for consideration a draft resolution on not being the first to deploy weapons in space.

    “It contains a simple proposal: a call for a dialog on this issue and further progress towards legally binding agreements,” Yermakov said. “The draft was adopted by an overwhelming majority vote. In 2015 there appeared 40 co-authors of that resolution.”

    “This year we will push ahead with promoting our draft resolution on not being the first to deploy weapons in space in the first committee of the UN General Assembly session,” Yermakov said. “But here the question arises who blocks this progress.”

    “It is our US partners who do that,” he said. “For the time being the United States is the sole country that upsets movement in this direction.”

    Yermakov said that four countries – the United States, Israel, Georgia and Ukraine – voted against that resolution.

    “The US forced its NATO partners and other allies to abstain when the resolution was put to the vote,” he recalled, adding that Russia would be defending its stance.

    According to Yermakov, Moscow firmly opposes the deployment of any weapons in space, moreover any arms race.

    “Russia’s foreign policy has a top priority to ensure security in space,” Yermakov said. “As space pioneers, we have undertaken special additional commitments on security of space activities,” he noted.

    “Since the Soviet times, we have stood up for international agreements so as to close down any possibility of placement of any weapons in space, moreover to begin an arms race there,” he said.

    Post-Soviet security bloc approves draft statement against militarization of outer space

    A draft statement in support of the multilateral initiative against the first deployment of weapons in outer space was approved by the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) member states at a working meeting on the sidelines of the 71st session of the UN General Assembly, Russia’s Foreign Ministry said on Friday.

    The customary meeting of the foreign ministers of the CSTO member states was held in New York on Thursday. The participants discussed the priority issues on the agenda at the 71st session of the UN General Assembly and exchanged views on the directions of the development of cooperation between the CSTO and the UN, including peacekeeping activities.

    “The allied states agreed on their joint actions at the UN level in the sphere of security, the war on terror, combating the glorification of Nazism and neo-Nazism, countering attempts to rewrite the outcome of the World War II, and so forth,” a source in the Russian foreign ministry noted.

    CSTO Secretary General Nikolay Bordyuzha informed the meeting’s participants about preparations for the next session of the CSTO Council of Collective Security, scheduled to be held on October 14 in Armenia’s capital of Yerevan.

    “The meeting marks an important step in efforts to bolster foreign policy coordination between the CSTO member states,” the Russian Foreign Ministry stated.

    These actions now bring us to the brink of World War III. President Putin should now wait until after the U.S. election is over in November or at the latest January. If by the time January comes around and if Trump isn’t President then we should see the first round of non-military black swan events set off by the great Russian leader. If by November we see the CGI faked Queen Melusina (Perci fifth degree witch) throned as President then these black swan events must be initiated with immediate effect. I spoke about a time-frame as late as January because even if Trump is announced the next President in November, he’s not inaugurated until January and could be assassinated in the meantime.

    Only a few days ago I’d said the time for dealing with so-called Western partners is over and it was now time for President Putin to use power-plays. I’m so glad he killed thirty state-sponsored terrorists in Syria who were of course from the nexus of evil; Israel, New Venice (Britain), U.S coordinating terrorism on the soils of Syria. Obama wants to rattle Putin’s cage early on before the U.S. election which would aid Clinton’s campaign and propaganda. President Putin must relax for a couple of months and then pull the pin out of the black swan grenade. Russia and China can cripple the New Venice Empire without even firing a bullet, rocket or missile, it’s as simple as scribing with a pen.
