ClubOrlov: A Russian Warning


Asleep Americans had better start waking up to the fact that, for all the trillions spent by the U.S. Corporation on the military-industrial complex, their country is ill prepared to defend itself against Putin’s military might.

If you care for your own life, and your children’s lives moving forward, you had better not only read, carefully, the following article but then move to do something to stop your government from destroying most of humanity and the planet:

A Russian Warning

We, the undersigned, are Russians living and working in the USA. We have been watching with increasing anxiety as the current US and NATO policies have set us on an extremely dangerous collision course with the Russian Federation, as well as with China. Many respected, patriotic Americans, such as Paul Craig Roberts, Stephen Cohen, Philip Giraldi, Ray McGovern and many others have been issuing warnings of a looming a Third World War. But their voices have been all but lost among the din of a mass media that is full of deceptive and inaccurate stories that characterize the Russian economy as being in shambles and the Russian military as weak—all based on no evidence. But we—knowing both Russian history and the current state of Russian society and the Russian military, cannot swallow these lies. We now feel that it is our duty, as Russians living in the US, to warn the American people that they are being lied to, and to tell them the truth. And the truth is simply this:

If there is going to be a war with Russia, then the United States will most certainly be destroyed, and most of us will end up dead.

Let us take a step back and put what is happening in a historical context. Russia has suffered a great deal at the hands of foreign invaders, losing 22 million people in World War II. Most of the dead were civilians, because the country was invaded, and the Russians have vowed to never let such a disaster happen again. Each time Russia had been invaded, she emerged victorious. In 1812 Nepoleon invaded Russia; in 1814 Russian cavalry rode into Paris. On June 22, 1941, Hitler’s Luftwaffe bombed Kiev; On May 8, 1945, Soviet troops rolled into Berlin.

But times have changed since then. If Hitler were to attack Russia today, he would be dead 20 to 30 minutes later, his bunker reduced to glowing rubble by a strike from a Kalibr supersonic cruise missile launched from a small Russian navy ship somewhere in the Baltic Sea. The operational abilities of the new Russian military have been most persuasively demonstrated during the recent action against ISIS, Al Nusra and other foreign-funded terrorist groups operating in Syria. A long time ago Russia had to respond to provocations by fighting land battles on her own territory, then launching a counter-invasion; but this is no longer necessary. Russia’s new weapons make retaliation instant, undetectable, unstoppable and perfectly lethal.

Thus, if tomorrow a war were to break out between the US and Russia, it is guaranteed that the US would be obliterated. At a minimum, there would no longer be an electric grid, no internet, no oil and gas pipelines, no interstate highway system, no air transportation or GPS-based navigation. Financial centers would lie in ruins. Government at every level would cease to function. US armed forces, stationed all around the globe, would no longer be resupplied. At a maximum, the entire landmass of the US would be covered by a layer of radioactive ash. We tell you this not to be alarmist, but because, based on everything we know, we are ourselves alarmed. If attacked, Russia will not back down; she will retaliate, and she will utterly annihilate the United States.

The US leadership has done everything it could to push the situation to the brink of disaster. First, its anti-Russian policies have convinced the Russian leadership that making concessions or negotiating with the West is futile. It has become apparent that the West will always support any individual, movement or government that is anti-Russian, be it tax-cheating Russian oligarchs, convicted Ukrainian war criminals, Saudi-supported Wahhabi terrorists in Chechnya or cathedral-desecrating punks in Moscow. Now that NATO, in violation of its previous promises, has expanded right up to the Russian border, with US forces deployed in the Baltic states, within artillery range of St. Petersburg, Russia’s second-largest city, the Russians have nowhere left to retreat. They will not attack; nor will they back down or surrender. The Russian leadership enjoys over 80% of popular support; the remaining 20% seems to feel that it is being too soft in opposing Western encroachment. But Russia will retaliate, and a provocation or a simple mistake could trigger a sequence of events that will end with millions of Americans dead and the US in ruins.

Unlike many Americans, who see war as an exciting, victorious foreign adventure, the Russians hate and fear war. But they are also ready for it, and they have been preparing for war for several years now. Their preparations have been most effective. Unlike the US, which squanders untold billions on dubious overpriced arms programs such as the F-35 joint task fighter, the Russians are extremely stingy with their defense rubles, getting as much as 10 times the bang for the buck compared to the bloated US defense industry. While it is true that the Russian economy has suffered from low energy prices, it is far from being in shambles, and a return to growth is expected as early as next year. Senator John McCain once called Russia “A gas station masquerading as a country.” Well, he lied. Yes, Russia is the world’s largest oil producer and second-largest oil exporter, but it is also world’s largest exporter of grain and nuclear power technology. It is as advanced and sophisticated a society as the United States. Russia’s armed forces, both conventional and nuclear, are now ready to fight, and they are more than a match for the US and NATO, especially if a war erupts anywhere near the Russian border.

But such a fight would be suicidal for all sides. We strongly believe that a conventional war in Europe runs a strong chance of turning nuclear very rapidly, and that any US/NATO nuclear strike on Russian forces or territory will automatically trigger a retaliatory Russian nuclear strike on the continental US. Contrary to irresponsible statements made by some American propagandists, American antiballistic missile systems are incapable of shielding the American people from a Russian nuclear strike. Russia has the means to strike at targets in the USA with long-range nuclear as well as conventional weapons.

The sole reason why the USA and Russia have found themselves on a collision course, instead of defusing tensions and cooperating on a wide range of international problems, is the stubborn refusal by the US leadership to accept Russia as an equal partner: Washington is dead set on being the “world leader” and the “indispensable nation,” even as its influence steadily dwindles in the wake of a string of foreign policy and military disasters such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Yemen and the Ukraine. Continued American global leadership is something that neither Russia, nor China, nor most of the other countries are willing to accept. This gradual but apparent loss of power and influence has caused the US leadership to become hysterical; and it is but a small step from hysterical to suicidal. America’s political leaders need to be placed under suicide watch.

First and foremost, we are appealing to the commanders of the US Armed Forces to follow the example of Admiral William Fallon, who, when asked about a war with Iran, reportedly replied “not on my watch.” We know that you are not suicidal, and that you do not wish to die for the sake of out-of-touch imperial hubris. If possible, please tell your staff, colleagues and, especially, your civilian superiors that a war with Russia will not happen on your watch. At the very least, take that pledge yourselves, and, should the day ever come when the suicidal order is issued, refuse to execute it on the grounds that it is criminal. Remember that according to the Nuremberg Tribunal “To initiate a war of aggression… is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole.” Since Nuremberg, “I was just following orders” is no longer a valid defense; please don’t be war criminals.

We also appeal to the American people to take peaceful but forceful action to oppose any politician or party that engages in irresponsible, provocative Russia-baiting, and that condones and supports a policy of needless confrontation with a nuclear superpower that is capable of destroying America in about an hour. Speak up, break through the barrier of mass media propaganda, and make your fellow Americans aware of the immense danger of a confrontation between Russia and the US.

There is no objective reason why US and Russia should consider each other adversaries. The current confrontation is entirely the result of the extremist views of the neoconservative cult, whose members were allowed to infiltrate the US Federal government under President Bill Clinton, and who consider any country that refuses to obey their dictates as an enemy to be crushed. Thanks to their tireless efforts, over a million innocent people have already died in the former Yugoslavia, in Afghanistan, in Iraq, Libya, Syria, Pakistan, the Ukraine, Yemen, Somalia and in many other countries—all because of their maniacal insistence that the USA must be a world empire, not a just a regular, normal country, and that every national leader must either bow down before them, or be overthrown. In Russia, this irresistible force has finally encountered an immovable object. They must be forced to back down before they destroy us all.

We are absolutely and categorically certain that Russia will never attack the US, nor any EU member state, that Russia is not at all interested in recreating the USSR, and that there is no “Russian threat” or “Russian aggression.” Much of Russia’s recent economic success has a lot to do with the shedding of former Soviet dependencies, allowing her to pursue a “Russia first” policy. But we are just as certain that if Russia is attacked, or even threatened with attack, she will not back down, and that the Russian leadership will not “blink.” With great sadness and a heavy heart they will do their sworn duty and unleash a nuclear barrage from which the United States will never recover. Even if the entire Russian leadership is killed in a first strike, the so-called “Dead Hand” (the “Perimetr” system) will automatically launch enough nukes to wipe the USA off the political map. We feel that it is our duty to do all we can to prevent such a catastrophe.

  1. All we need is to go out and buy something! Tubularsock believes that all that is necessary to save the world is purchasing power. BUY BABY BUY! Oh, could you loan Tubularsock a dime? Great post, Sojourn II.

  2. Thanks, Tube!

    “BUY BABY BUY!” Damn, I didn’t think about that! Consumerism and Capitalism to the rescue again!

    Yes, I can loan you a dime. Do you want me to mail it to you, or do you want to do PayPal?;-)


  3. The pissing contest never ends, does it? Noone and no where will survive playing with nukes like chess pieces. Can’t these military guys see they will die too?


  4. “The pissing contest that never ends” is correct, LT!

    Fortunately, there seems to be a few of the military higher ups who are beginning to question the elite’s agenda for a new world order. So hopefully, when the elite’s order their stooges in the oval office and congress to attack Russia and/or China, the military will refuse.

    I know it’s a long shot. But it might be the only hope we have left!

    Thanks for commenting!


  5. Hi Lara, Hi Sojourner,

    Over at the “Off-guardian” website, the same “Open Letter” has been posted. One of the persons who left a comment made a good point:

    Quote begins:

    There will not be a war unless by accident in which case the West is f**kkd so it won’t happen. The “Homeland” reduced to ashes serves nobody & even an utter imbecile like Obama knows that.

    Sadly a lot of Russians living outside Russia are nothing more than gullible opportunists trying to find an easy way to prosperity & live the myth of the ‘American Dream’ with meagre talents & knicked leg up but certainly not all to be fair. I’ve met way too many & euthenasia is too kind for them – At least the Irish when they emigrate open a Pub !

    Russia is full of educated talent & very particularly talent in the field of military tech – when the Americans invent something to surpass the 1970’s Shkval, 1980’s SS Sunburn or recent Khibiny then lets sleep well & talk about this matter again but until that day NATO has lots of big knives from bankrupt countries with not a lot of time on theor hands at a Russian gunfight & won’t dare attack – TODAY its all about stealing taxpayer money via the ridiculously inflated prices of the Military Industrial Complex. Its called “The Clinton Doctrine”.

    Quote ends.

    I gave the comment a “like” and replied:

    Quote begins:

    You make a good point. Is the ‘alarm’ being raised by the “open letter” at hand genuine or ‘sensationalism’ trying to turn a dollar? I don’t know, and if you read this post over at “The Saker” website, titled “How Russia is preparing for WWIII,” it makes you wonder: from the standpoint of the Russian military, is there or is there not a “military threat” emanating from the West? If not, as “The Saker” himself seems to be arguing in that particular post, then why the alarmist tone of the “Open Letter?”
    Your point is well taken . . .


    Quote ends.

    Indeed, “The Saker’s” piece titled “How Russia is preparing for WWIII” doesn’t at all square with the “Open Letter,” one of the co-authors of the letter. The former argues that there is “no” objective military threat to the Russian Federation, while the “Open Letter” presupposes that threat. The point that the “Off-guardian” comment makes is that the Russian expats are ‘capitalizing’ on ‘fear mongering,’ as, of course, the Military Industrial Complex(es) themselves are doing. Everyone, so to speak, is giving everyone a hand in fleecing an audience and taxpaying electorates in fear of their lives. To my mind, the comment confronts with a plausibly coherent explanation of the scenario confronting us.

    Chantal, my wife, is of Lara’s opinion: the military establishments on both sides know what the ultimate outcome will be if they push things to far, and it won’t be good for any of them. Therefore, she concludes, the hysteria is manufactured: capitalists on one side colluding with capitalists on the other, blackmailing hostage populations.

    War is a racket, n’est ce pas.

    To quote “The Saker’s” piece:

    Quote begins:

    “What does all this add up to? [i.e., all of the purported provocative military actions of “encirclement” by the West.]

    “Right now, nothing much, really.”

    Quote ends.

    Okay. Then why all the fuss, eh? In the meantime, perhaps we can indeed “sleep well.”

  6. Yes, I can see that this could all just be more blowing smoke for some unknown gain on these folks’ part.

    So that would mean Putin is blowing smoke as well, with his threats against Poland and the Baltic states,. right?

    As far as the history of the 20th century goes, when Europe is in turmoil, then a world war is not far behind, or at least this has been the historical narrative. And Europe, especially Eastern Europe, is in turmoil. And this makes me a little more open to articles like this.

    But who knows, a retrograde inverted world is hard to make any sense of!

  7. On a different note, Norm, as I was reading your latest post on global warming, I began to realize I had read it before. It’s been a while, so I will go over it again, over the next few days.

    And on your other post on Aleppo and Al Qaeda. How convoluted is this shit, if true?


  8. Vanessa’s post are always well grounded in verifiable ‘fact,’ or at least that is my impression. I take her to be both reliable and astute. On the other hand, her articles are always for me the hardest to read, emotionally speaking. She doesn’t spare her reader of the horrors that are the daily consequences of this particular war. Sometimes I find it’s too much for me and then I purposely avoid her site, but not that I should, I know . . .

  9. To be honest, Norm, I find my self doing this more and more. It is all starting to get to me. I live alone, and so am isolated quite a bit of the time. All of my family members are gone, and the few friends I have, my age, are going through their own hell, as I shared with you the other day.

    And at night, when I am having trouble breathing and sleeping, all of this hell comes back to torment me. The agitation and anxiety, of course, only compounds the asthmatic effect.

    I have no intention of quitting bloging, so I must then, take steps to insure I don’t drive my self insane or become even more ill while doing so.

    So after all this whining, Norm, my point was, I understand what you mean here.:-)

    I read an article the other day that claims we can become too empathetic, too involved in other’s suffering, and this can lead to our own mental and physical issues. I don’t know if the article is correct, but I wouldn’t doubt it, based on my experiences.
