russian-bunkersDid you know that the Russians have a massive underground complex in the Ural mountains that has been estimated to be approximately 400 square miles in size?  In other words, it is roughly as big as the area inside the Washington D.C. beltway.  Back in the 1990s, the Clinton administration was deeply concerned about the construction of this enormous complex deep inside Yamantau mountain, but they could never seem to get any straight answers from the Russians.  The command center for this complex is rumored to be 3,000 feet directly straight down from the summit of this giant rock quartz mountain.  And of course U.S. military officials will admit that there are dozens of other similar sites throughout Russia, although most of them are thought to be quite a bit smaller.  But that is not all that the Russians have been up to.  For example, Russian television has reported that 5,000 new emergency nuclear bomb shelters were scheduled to have been completed in the city of Moscow alone by the end of 2012.  Most Americans don’t realize this, but the Russians have never stopped making preparations for nuclear war.  Meanwhile, the U.S. government has essentially done nothing to prepare our citizens for an attack.  The assumption seems to be that a nuclear attack will probably never happen, and that if it does it will probably mean the end of our civilization anyway. Needless to say, the Russians are very secretive about their massive underground facility at Yamantau mountain, and no American has ever been inside.  The following is what Wikipedia has to say about it…

Large excavation projects have been observed by U.S. satellite imagery as recently as the late 1990s, during the time of Boris Yeltsin’s government after the fall of the Soviet Union. Two garrisons, Beloretsk-15 and Beloretsk-16, were built on top of the facility, and possibly a third, Alkino-2, as well, and became the closed town of Mezhgorye in 1995. They are said to house 30,000 workers each. Repeated U.S. questions have yielded several different responses from the Russian government regarding Mount Yamantaw. They have said it is a mining site, a repository for Russian treasures, a food storage area, and a bunker for leaders in case of nuclear war. Responding to questions regarding Yamantaw in 1996, Russia’s Defense Ministry stated: “The practice does not exist in the Defense Ministry of Russia of informing foreign mass media about facilities, whatever they are, that are under construction in the interests of strengthening the security of Russia.” Large rail lines serve the facility.

Back in 1996, the New York Times reported on the continuing construction of this site.  U.S. officials were quite puzzled that the Russians were continuing to build it even though the Cold War was supposedly over at that point…

In a secret project reminiscent of the chilliest days of the cold war, Russia is building a mammoth underground military complex in the Ural Mountains, Western officials and Russian witnesses say. Hidden inside Yamantau mountain in the Beloretsk area of the southern Urals, the project involves the construction of a huge complex served by a railroad, a highway and thousands of workers.

Within the U.S. intelligence community, there was a tremendous amount of debate at that time regarding the purposes of this facility, but what everyone agreed on was that it was going to be absolutely massive…

A report in Sovetskaya Rossiya said the project involves construction of a railroad, a modern highway and towns for tens of thousands of workers and their families. “The complex is as big as the Washington area inside the Beltway,” said an American official familiar with intelligence reports.

A couple of years later, a top U.S. general said that he believed that the complex at Yamantau had “millions of square feet available for underground facilities”

In 1998, in a rare public comment, then-Commander of the U.S. Strategic Command (STRATCOM) Gen. Eugene Habinger, called Yamantau “a very large complex — we estimate that it has millions of square feet available for underground facilities. We don’t have a clue as to what they’re doing there.” It is believed to be large enough to house 60,000 persons, with a special air filtration system designed to withstand a nuclear, chemical or biological attack. Enough food and water is believed to be stored at the site to sustain the entire underground population for months on end.

A few years after that, in 2003, there was an article in the Washington Post by Bruce G. Blair in which Yamantau was mentioned as a potential key target for U.S. nuclear war planners…

Die-hard [U.S.] nuclear war planners actually have their eyes on targets in Russia and China, including missile silos and leadership bunkers. For these planners, the Cold War never ended. Their top two candidates [i.e., targets] in Russia are located inside the Yamantau and Kosvinsky mountains in the central and southern Urals. Both were huge construction projects begun in the late 1970s, when U.S. nuclear firepower took special aim at the Communist Party’s leadership complex. Fearing a decapitating strike, the Soviets sent tens of thousands of workers to these remote sites, where U.S. spy satellites spotted them still toiling away in the late 1990s.

But the Russians have not just been building giant underground facilities deep in the Urals. They have also been constructing thousands of new underground bomb shelters in major cities such as Moscow. The following is an excerpt from an RT article in 2010…

Nearly 5,000 new emergency bomb shelters will be built in Moscow by 2012 to save people in case of potential attacks. Moscow authorities say the measure is urgent as the shelters currently available in the city can house no more that half of its population. In the last 20 years, the area of air-raid defense has been developed little, and the existing shelters have become outdated. Moreover, they are located mostly in the city center,which makes densely populated Moscow outskirts especially vulnerable in the event of a nuclear attack. In order to resolve the issue, the city has given architects a task to construct a typical model of an easy-to-build shelter that will be located all over the city 10 to 15 meters underneath apartment blocks, shopping centers, sport complexes and parks, as in case of attack people will need to reach the shelters within a minute.

Of course all of this construction cost the Russians a lot of money. One estimate put the cost at “anywhere from half a billion to a billion dollars”

Though the bunkers are supposed to be designed to shelter the population in the event of a nuclear attack, government officials say it’s only a precaution and they do not expect such an attack or nuclear outbreak (e.g. Chernobyl) to occur. Neither RT or the Russian government provided estimates for the cost of the facilities. A Popular Mechanics article that reviewed a number of different types of bunkers and building practices had varying prices depending on the type of shelter. Since the proposed Russian bunkers would hold roughly 1000 people each (based on the population count and other details), one could estimate that the lowest price point for a bunker this size, with basic necessities like bathrooms and reserve food for a day or two, may run in the area of around $100,000 – $200,000. This would put a conservative price tag for 5000 shelters anywhere from half a billion to a billion dollars. A significant investment, indeed.

So what about us? Has the U.S. government constructed any bunkers for the survival of the general population in the United States? Of course not.  In the event of a nuclear war, I guess they just expect pretty much all of us to die. The Russians also recently finished work on a brand new national defense center in Moscow that contains extensive underground facilities

Russia is launching a new national defense facility, which is meant to monitor threats to national security in peacetime, but would take control of the entire country in case of war. The new top-security, fortified facility in Moscow includes several large war rooms, a brand new supercomputer in the heart of a state-of-the-art data processing center, underground facilities, secret transport routes for emergency evacuation and a helicopter pad, which was deployed for the first time on Nov. 24 on the Moscow River. The Defense Ministry won’t disclose the price tag for the site, but it is estimated at the equivalent of several billion dollars.

In addition, the Russians have also been developing a new anti-ballistic missile system that is designed to keep U.S. nuclear missiles from getting to their targets in the first place. The U.S. doesn’t have anything like the S-500 that is currently being developed by the Russians.  At the latest, it is scheduled to be deployed in 2017, but there are rumors that it is already starting to be deployed today.  The following comes from military-today.com

The S-500 is not an upgrade of the S-400, but a new design. It uses a lot of new technology and is superior to the S-400. It was designed to intercept ballistic missiles. It is planned to have a range of 500-600 km and hit targets at altitudes as high as 40 km. Some sources claim that this system is capable of tracking 5-20 ballistic targets and intercepting up to 5-10 ballistic targets simultaneously. It can defeat ballistic missiles traveling at 5-7 kilometers per second. It has been reported that this air defense system can also target low orbital satellites. It is planned that the S-500 will shield Moscow and the regions around it. It will replace the current A-135 anti-ballistic missile system. The S-500 missiles will be used only against the most important targets, such as intercontinental ballistic missiles, AWACS and jamming aircraft.

Sadly, most Americans are not interested in this stuff at all. These days, most Americans just assume that the Russians are “our friends” and that a war with Russia could never possibly happen. What they don’t realize is that the Russian people see things very, very differently.  Today, 81 percent of Russians have a negative opinion of the United States.  Our interference in the conflict in Ukraine has made the Russian people very angry, and there are many over there that now believe that a shooting war with the United States is inevitable. And this week things between the United States and Russia got even more tense.  Barack Obama has already announced that we will be sending “non-lethal” military aid to the Ukrainians, but now the U.S. House of Representativeshas overwhelmingly passed a resolution that calls for Obama to send “lethal” military aid to the government in Kiev…

Yesterday, in a vote that largely slid under the radar, the House of Representatives passed a resolution urging Obama to send lethal aid to Ukraine, providing offensive, not just “defensive” weapons to the Ukraine army – the same insolvent, hyperinflating Ukraine which, with a Caa3/CC credit rating, last week started preparations to issue sovereign debt with a US guarantee, in essence making it a part of the United States (something the US previously did as a favor to Egypt before the Muslim Brotherhood puppet regime was swept from power by the local army). The resolution passed with broad bipartisan support by a count of 348 to 48. According to DW,  the measure urges Obama to provide Ukraine with “lethal defensive weapon systems” that would better enable Ukraine to defend its territory from “the unprovoked and continuing aggression of the Russian Federation.” “Policy like this should not be partisan,” said House Democrat Eliot Engel, the lead sponsor of the resolution. “That is why we are rising today as Democrats and Republicans, really as Americans, to say enough is enough in Ukraine.”

If Obama does decide to send lethal military aid to the Ukrainians, the Russians are going to flip out. Sadly, neither side seems very interested in peace at this point. We just continue to take even more steps along the road toward World War III, and it is a war that the United States is completely and utterly unprepared for.

  1. In a word NO!
    The stated goal and purpose of Agenda 21 it to kill (or slaughter) off about 300 Billion American’s so WHY would anyone want to build shelters here? When the Russians can do our dirty work for us. It’s more efficient that way and no one here has to get their hands dirty or in this case bloody. It’s ALL part of the master plan, so sit back take your shoes off, American idol is coming on in just a few minutes AND sleep well as Obummer has your back tonight. http://www.iplantosurvive.info

      “The assumption is that a nuclear strike will never happen here” (in U.S.). NO!!! NOT TRUE!!

      The Neocons/elites, are MAKING PLANS for nuclear war! Read Paul Craig Roberts’ website, Global Research website, etc.!

      Its not that our government doesn’t think we will get struck with nuclear bombs! They (elites) have huge underground bunkers here in the US– for example in Va.– the size of a Swiss resort! They know its coming– they just don’t give a crap about us US citizens…

      I read a book about this years ago– In other countries, its REQUIRED to have nuclear fallout shelters built under each house– other countries are preparing. But our government says it won’t help to have bomb shelters and so they discourage us from building them. In the meantime, behind closed doors, they HAVE HUGE BUNKERS FOR THE ELITES!!! Just not for us!!!

        “sadly, neither side wants peace”– wrong again!!!

        I have watching this situation very, very closely for the last couple years! Putin has bent over backward, trying to communicate with the West. He does not war. If he liked, he could have taken over the whole of Ukraine in a matter of hours. If anything, Putin has been a wus!!(The only thing he did do was annex Crimea, a very important area that has always been part of Russia, and this was voted on).

        The WEST wants war! It is obvious to me and anyone paying attention! Is Russia preparing for Nuclear war? Certainly! Because they know its coming! All the West does is spout lies and tries every way possible to destroy Russia, weaken her, suppress her, and provoke her! U.S. government reminds me of a nasty tempered dog, determined to get to its victim (in this case Russia). They are surrounding her with NATO build up, practicing war drills and lieing with every breath!

        I’ve been stressed out, feeling something awful is coming our way because the US is doing the same thing they did before bombing Iraq…only this time, its Russia!!

      • Please listen. The population of the USA is about the same number of ppl that are slated to be destroyed, in order to stabilise the planet and supposedly have enough food for everyone. But, nothing will change even if we DO get nuked, because those that are starving will continue to starve, and eventually the ones that do the nuking will find they have cut off their noses to spite their faces as they too will eventually run out of foods and supplies (and the entire water supply will be radioactive and nothing exists (to my knowledge) that can make it drinkable.
        On the flip side, just do a bit of reading and learn how simple it is to make your home “nuke proof” (but not from a full blown blast from hell, but an EMP (electro-magnetic pulse) that may be used to knock out our electrical services country-wide. Would take years to fix and obviously everyone would pretty much kill each other during the interim from every low-down thing you can think of. The three B’s apply well. BandAids-Beans-Bullets. If you “shield” your home, IF you can stock up or know how to hunt, fish and trap, IF you can read up on what it takes and what you need to “be a prepper” (it isn’t expensive nor hard ..but a good way of life actually) …then you’ll make it. The feds will not. The survivors will ensure they NEVER get out of their damned “survival shelter mountain retreats ((like Cheyenne’s Crystal Mountain, another somewhere in Virginia and others (area 51 is said to have a massive underground facility and with all those runways …well, makes sense doesn’t it? Anyway, first order of biz will be to bury them for good (perhaps just find all the pipes and seal them off after filling them with zillions of snakes, spiders, flies, their own creations of illnesses “in a bottle” (you get my drift). It IS true that we are going to suffer a ‘first strike’ with no warning. Also, China has parked satellites that do nothing but explode just a few feet from ALL of our communications satellites. (But without power what good are satellites)? You’ll need Iodine (to treat radiation sickness, the doctor can set you up for that right now). There are cheap products that make non-rad water quite safe to drink …and food is anyone’s guess (but I have no doubt many of us will be discovered to be eating each other ….think I’ll opt to die of starvation or just take a danged ship and head out to sea. (Get deep enough and there will be food, totally untouched and unaware of any ‘rad’ (water is great at distributing that stuff and nullifying it too …umm, to a degree of course. Nuff said …except YES-we r going to get nuked 8 ways to Sunday (to include “dirty bombs” in several cities and ??? Start stocking now. Stores will be emptied in less than an hour when the SHTF as they say.
        I am a reverend, but did 20-years in the military and had access to info and yeah I worked with it too. We are most definitely in deep poo poo …so get ready in every way you can. We don’t have a single allie due to ‘bam-bam’s foreign policies…and Putin and China have combined forces for the sole purpose of taking us out …unlikely we can do much about it with the present administration more than willing to allow it to happen without saying a word to us. What I say is truth as best as I have ever known truth to be. (You have nothing to lose if you simply try). If you dont, you won’t make it anyway right? Remember to get a decent gun and much ammo. And pray …even if you don’t believe, pray.

  2. We’re in the wrong club.

    • OutWest says:

      Fema bunkers, six foot deep.

      • PO'd Patriot says:

        Does the box come with it or not? I want to know what to wear….

      • For all who are new to this site since 2011-12 time frame and those who might not remember, this is nothing new…just a new spin to make it seem new and relevant to today. Not saying that if there were a nuclear war that they (Russia) wouldn’t be smart and use them….that is a big fat duh!

        But this was talked about on this very site back 3-4 years ago, long before all the current day news/propaganda about Russia. It was talked about in a manner of “at least their government is doing something for their people” vs. Our government “who is building bunkers only for themselves to hide in in a disaster while the serfs up top die.”

        • Yahooie says:

          Back in the 50s and 60s during the Cold War era, people did for themselves. There were freely available, and likely still are somewhere online, various plans for building a bunker for your own family and home. No one counted on the government for much. Sample joke of the time: What is a tank? Answer–a mouse built to mil specs. The real point? We don’t need a mouse; all we need is what we can do for ourselves. I grew up in flyover country so being self reliant is well ingrained. 🙂

    • John Stiner says:

      I don’t think i believe this article. The Russians have never given a sh!t about any of there people. Just look at the millions Stalan killed and the 20 million intentionally wasted in WWII.

      Why would Russia suddenly care about their people now?

      Also, citing Wikipedia as a source only shows how worthless this story is.

      • 74 years isn’t really an “all of the sudden” thing.

      • apache54 says:

        John Stiner,
        Russia DOES care about SOME of there people SOOOO if you are on the correct side you might get a place in one of those bunkers, If you are loyal to the mother land in most cases it will be loyal to you. something our current assholes iin office here have forgotten, they are ONLY loyal to how much money can we put in our pockets as they sell us out!!!

      • TPSnodgrass says:

        When I was in the USAF as a SAC trained Nuke-Puke, we had numerous briefings, on the Soviet preparations for nuclear war survival. This “story” is NOT new at all, and the information in the article has long been in the public source arena. For people to have not paid attention to what the Soviets have STILL been doing and yes, they still are Soviets politically, is just another symbol of American mediocrity in action.
        We should not be surprised at the contents of this article at all.

      • Anonymous says:

        You need to do some research, Stiner– things change!!

        China has changed (though certainly not nearly enough!), the U.S. has changed (in the wrong direction!!!) and Russia has changed (its a democracy!).

        Russia is probably more of a democracy now days than the U.S.!!!! Russia/Soviet Union used to be the bad guys/aggressors. Now, since the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russia and the US have traded roles/acts.

  3. Son of Liberty says:

    It is thoroughly disgusting and disheartening that our government would, 1) fail to supply truthful and adequate information to the American people so they could take steps to provide protection for them and their families. And 2) that they fail to take steps similar to the Russian government to actually/positively protect their people is egregious and unconscionable. Further, 3) to think they would vilify Americans who see the writing on the wall and attempt to make precautions for themselves and their families is beyond the pale.

    Continue to prepare people – for you, your family, and your neighbor(s) as best you are able. May God be with you.

    Blessings,

    • Annon3 says:

      I’m pretty sure that you can add actively preventing people from prepping properly.

    • Frank Thoughts says:

      It is clear the governments in Canada, US and UK do not care about the survival of their populations. They went to war over a decade ago and did nothing to prepare the civilian populations for the threats of terrorism. Equally, they are doing nothing to prepare for a coming conflict with Russia and China. It is almost as if the elites have their plans squared away and will just serve up urban populations as a ‘buffer’ to take the hits from the enemy. To be fair to the elites, many cities have been turned into third world population reception centres, so maybe they feel no urgency to protect those peoples.

      • Jaques Merde says:

        Precisely, FT! I had a State Reprehensitive, openly state, that he believes the survival of the ‘government’ is paramount to the survival of the governed…

  4. Walter Middy says:

    “So what about us? Has the U.S. government constructed any bunkers for the survival of the general population in the United States?”
    The sub-title, it’s a joke right?
    If I recall, when the USSR folded, we sent them $500 Billion dollars US. So- you ask “what did our gob-ment do? Seems they took our tax dollars and financed some of these caves.
    You can ALWAYS count on our elect to do EXACTLY the wrong thing I think. Of course that’s only if you believe they’re there to protect, defend and help us. If you look at there actions based on the premis of; “If I were going to destroy our country, what would I do?” THEN it all makes sense.
    AND>>>>I’M FIRST!!!! wooo-hoooo

    Putin rides a bear to work, and Obama wears mom jeans.

    Nothing to worry about.

    At least if you’re Russian.

    I still wonder exactly where Putin really was for those ten days he went missing and what he was doing. A publicity hound like that doesn’t just take off from the public eye for the fun of it, something intriguing was going on.

    In any event, we’ll get a warning things are getting serious between Putin and Obama if Putin starts threatening to bomb our golf courses. That’s the only threat Obama is going to take seriously.

      A nuke war aint something to “live” through , IMHO .

      • Son of Liberty says:

        I see you have been drinking the koolaid again. Read Nuclear War Survival Skills (Kearney) which tells you that the chances of you surviving a nuclear conflict are VERY HIGH. The question is, will you have found shelter in the first few days of the conflict and survive relatively unscathed – or will you be mostly outside and attempting to live a ‘normal’ life while the fallout is continuing to fall, and consequently die a slow agonizing death?

        There are STILL multitudes of survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasake alive even today – with little training, preparations, and cover to protect them.

        WAKE UP AMERICA!!! Nuclear war, if you are outside the immediate blast radius, is SURVIVABLE!!! If you think not, then you are drinking the leftist/liberal/socialist kookaid.

        Learn!!! Understand!!! And don’t be so ding dong gullible about – “Ahhhh! We’re all going to die anyway.” Baloney!!! Most (in excess of 80%) of us outside the blast zone WILL survive. The large percentage of those who WILL die will be due to a lack of adequate shelter during the initial days after the nuclear exchange.

        God in heaven help us! Wake us up!

        • Frank Thoughts says:

          You are right: I think the plan is to let the cesspool centres – New York, LA, etc. – get wiped but the majority of the population will survive the first strikes. The future will belong to them. They should be mentally prepared for a better future and a clean slate to undo the mistakes of the past. I think Russians will help: they love being white and European and will help to create a new Euro-centric world. The Chinese are also future-oriented people from a sophisticated civilization. They are builders and will help make the New World. Fewer people, but better people in harmony with the planet.

        • hammerhead says:

          SON-

          OK , i will .
          Got any links or suggestions ?
          I have had koolaid before , the taste is bitter .

        • TheGuy says:

          Yeah well if I look at NukeMap…

          It ain’t hard to figure out that they’d do downtown LA, LAX, the port of LA, Edwards AFB up in Palmdale, the marine base in 29 Palms, those are the ones that come most obviously and immediately to mind.

          Added bonus: do LAX and you take out the sewage treatment plant to a huge huge portion of LA simultaneously. Mmmmm shit everywhere, with nowhere to go anymore.

          Point is with just the first two I’m toast already, several times over, unless I was in a car going North well before the fact.

      • john w. says:

        Since they will most likely use neutron weapons so as not to damage the real estate, there is little short of going deep underground to protect yourself. We got rid of out neutron bombs thanks to the same numb nuts that brought the Ayatollah back to Iran. I suspect that one of Obamas final actions as president will be to unilaterally disarm the US nuclear forces. Shortly thereafter they will wipe us out.

    Of course they’re building nuclear shelters. They don’t trust us. Who can blame them. I don’t trust us!!! Do you trust us? Nobody in there right mind would trust our government!!!! Peppers prep out of fear against our government ….. Which makes the Russians the worlds biggest prepers.

    As for our side, asking there side, what they’re doing? Really? That’s a big deal? Our own government doesn’t tell “us” what they get up to!!! I’m surprised the Russians didn’t just say “mind your own fucking business Amerika”

    Look at our own underground facilities. The difference between our sites and there sites is, the Russians build there sites to protect as many people as possible ….. Our sites are to protect our wealthy, elite and chosen few. Any nuclear bomb shelters built and hidden on US soil aren’t for you and me or our children! AND THEY ARE THERE. You’d be a fool to think otherwise.

    Nuclear war will most likely be fought with neutron bombs. Killing everyone and everything within a 1000 yds. it will leave infrastructure in place with little radioactive fall out. It makes using nuclear wepons a viable global option. Oh, and btw find your sewer cover now because if you do get a little warning don’t waste time looking for one. Sewer rats will survive nuclear war too.

    “Sadly, neither side seems very interested in peace at this point”

    I think you’re wrong about that Mr. Snyder. The Russians did not ask for the west to stage a coup in Ukraine, nor did they invite NATO to park missiles on their borders, surrounding their home. RUSSIA IS NOT THE AGGRESSOR HERE, no matter how many ways you try to make that claim.

    Russia was plenty happy being left the fuck alone, but the U.S. just couldn’t stop with the regime changes and incursions into places we are not wanted or invited.

    The western globalist elites are the aggressors, AND THEY HAVE TAKEN OVER OUR GOVERNMENT. They will stop at nothing to bring in their NWO, even if it means destroying the U.S. and Russia. If you are not capable of seeing that, Mr. Snyder, you should really avoid writing articles on that subject…you just screw the facts all up, and add to the disinformation and propaganda.

    WE DON’T NEED ANY MORE disinformation OR propaganda. People are confused enough as it is. Please stop WARMONGERING.

    If the muslim in the white house has his way a nuclear war between Russia, China, NK etc against the US, nato and other allies would actually leave a huge power vacuum in the world for his muslim buddies to fill. Just one tiny glitch that obomber is trying to work out now is Israel bombing his friends in Iran. But otherwise the plan is…………….

    • Frank Thoughts says:

      It is very transparent what is going on: get the non-Islamic world to wipe itself out while Saudi Arabia goes on the march and hooks up with ISIS to build the global caliphate. They have already launched the first phase – the take-over of Yemen – then they will turn around and – with their partner ISIS – grab all of North Africa and the ME. With that base in place, they then will launch into Europe and Central Asia. Africa will be the easy part, since all they have to do is have their partners in Sudan, Kenya and Somalia cross borders and topple the corrupt African states like dominoes. The only resistance will come from the whites in South Africa who know how to fight.

  17. GrandpaSpeaks says:

    Russians and Ukrainians are not the problem. You do know who marches us to war, right? The global power cabal embrace corruption in order to satisfy their greed for power and stomp on everything and everybody to get that power and subsequent control. To be what? A thief? Give me a break. The epitome of man certainly does not play out in real time. And because it does not we have doomed ourselves to an irradiated future. War only hastens it but it is guaranteed irradiated. Everything good in man now cries out as our war machine again clatters across Europe. There is no cause just enough at this time other than Fukushima.
    “You soldier, clean that egg and tomato off that military vehicle”. It is thrown there now because we failed to clean it off our national face after Benghazi. There is some blowback on our national face there. Covers both eyes. Here Sammy boy, let me get that for ya.

    “Today, 81 percent of Russians have a negative opinion of the United States.”

    I’m sure they are not alone on this negative opinion. I’m willing to bet that most or possibly all of the other countries of the world concur with Russia’s “negative opinion”.

    I’m sure most of us here can concur with Russia’s view of America. Can’t blame ’em, our Government and country is that fucked up’d.

  20. Them Hogs says:

    Saudi Arabia announced today that they are starting their own nuke program, to counter Iran’s.

    The Saudis and the Iranians are fighting a proxy war in Yemen. The Saudi’s are trying to get together a group of Muslim states to help counter Iran.

    Iran & Syria are allied to Russia/China, and Russia is expanding their naval bases in Syria.

    China is building naval bases all over the world including Africa and South America…….while Barry plays golf

    Watch out fur them hogs!

    • Frank Thoughts says:

      Most people can’t see the big picture for all the noise and confusion. But if you pull back, use open sources that are available with a bit of digging (and back up with the Wikileaks and Snowdown documents), you will find this is what is going on:

      1) The US and the UK are actually aligned with Saudi Arabia/al Qaeda/ISIS in building a global caliphate. The caliphate will be used to launch attacks against Europe and be the forward operating base
      2) Russia and China know this as do the last remaining progressives and secularists in the Islamic world (Syria etc.)
      3) The Pentagon has advanced plans to wipe out Europeans/Russians/Chinese in a first strike, and mop up the rest using mostly hispanic and black troops who hate whites and asians
      4) The US hopes after this slaughter they will be the last man standing for its elites
      5) The Russians and Chinese know all of this as they have penetrated this plan many years ago. This is why they are quietly sweeping across the planet to build their own forward defenses (Africa, Latin America) to check mate the caliphate. At some point Western European countries will realize the betrayal and switch sides out of the need to survive (watch Germany: when they switch, that is when the sparks fly). At that point, China will become the number one investor in Europe.
      6) 2015-2016 are the years when it will become very clear what is going on, who is on what side and nobody will doubt WWIII is on big time.

    What in the fuck diference does it make if they nuke it. Bottom line is nobody is going to be able to grow anything, most all living meat will be contaminated and sooner or later your going to run out of stock.

      A military strike will be doing us a favor. The pacific ocean radiation plume from Fuckushima is hitting cali now. I live here. Those little critters at the bottom of the food chain are dead and so are we. Celesium is showing up in the midwest now carried by the clouds forming over the pacific. It is already in our food chain and in you. Celesium accumulates in everything that eats it. Get it: The more we eat and drink the more likely to get cancer. The problem is a geiger counter wont help because the poisoning is so subtle. Only an advance test can reveal your exposure level.

      This is the begining of extinction for most life on this planet. Thanks PU you stink :(.

      Smell the roses while you can. Semper Fi

  22. Rellik says:

    The best example is Chernobyl. Russians may survive the initial blasts, assuming they can get to shelters, but the left over Alpha and Beta emitting ash will be everywhere, for years. If you ingest any of those particles you will not live as long as you should. Don’t pick your nose and eat the buggers, don’t breathe the dust, don’t drink surface water. Hard to live that way for years.

    As for the lack of shelters in America, we won’t really miss the cities, they all vote Democrat and who wants to deal with 140-150 million “Gimme Dat’s”, anyway. As for the rich and powerful, who is going to “serve” them? If I saw Chuck Schumer after TSHTF, I’d blow his brains out and feed him to my pigs. The rich and powerful won’t be very welcome in most places.

  23. solus lupus says:

    got wood?

    this article just reminded me to buy a few extra replacement solid oak shovel handle shafts.

    having a good spade shovel , pry bar , pick axe , timber saw and axe is all you need to enter the protection of the forest or even a bombed crumbled building in the city to build your own lil’ dugout disaster shelter.

    shelter is first and foremost if you want to survive.

    shelter from the weather elements , cold of night and heat of day sun keeps you alive 3x longer than without.

    which gives you time to find life sustaining food , water or maybe even rescue.

  24. Joe in JT says:

    The Neocon’s got their wish. A surprise first strike on Russia. Complete decapitation of the Russian leadership. But before they can drink their bottle of champagne to celebrate… out from the ruins comes Russia’s Continuation of Government and high ranking military generals. As they asses the damage their reaction is very clear. Retaliation on America.

    Unbeknownst to US intelligence is the Russian nuclear stealth missile. It carries a 800 kiloton nuclear warhead, it’s skin absorbs radar and it’s shape doesn’t reflect anything back. It’s invisible. But that’s not the best part of this retaliatory weapon. It’s fuel source is 5 uranium pellets. So the missile doesn’t have to be fueled, it doesn’t have to be charged up, it’s always ready for launch. Once the door containing the pellets is opened it mixes with synthetic liquid and forms the explosive jet thrust that powers the missile.

    Quietly the Russian cruise missile leaves it’s top secret mountain bunker silo. It makes no more jet thrust than a small Lear Jet. No body notices. It’s preplanned flight takes is low, very low, over the mountains and onto the sea, barely skimming above the waves. Since it’s powered by uranium nuclear pellets it’s range is unlimited. It could circle the earth 27 times in needed but this trip is only going to one place. Washington, D.C. Then… 18 hours and 17 minutes after taking off from a Russian silo the 800 kiloton cruise missile silently enters Washingtons air space. As the neocons raise their wine glasses in celebration a bright flash enters their one lone window followed by a rush of super heated air. They never did get to finish that bottle of Dom.

    • jaxx says:

      That strikes me as ridiculous, and I would hope both Russia and the US are smarter than to try to set up such a weapon. It would very much surprise me if both the US and Russia (and probably others) didn’t have stationary nukes already in place in each other’s capitols plus the top 10 or more largest cities in each country, ready to remove from concealing lead shielding and turn a key to detonate within minutes. The only reason for spending untold billions for stealth technology, ICBMs, bombers, submarines and whatever is to get campaign contributions, I would say.

    So we are now attacking both Syria and Yemem as they fight back against ISIS on top of the americans backing the local nazi party in the Ukraine with britain doing its part to kick off over the falklands.

    Someone is just twitching to fire off some nukes to solve the pension problem because the international bankers have already made off link bandits with the money and the don’t what to face justice of the mobs.

    Russia has every right in the world to try to protects its people against the interests of the bankers and your government has shown how much it thinks about you by doing naff all whilst trying to provoke wars all over the world.

    We don’t have very much control over lots of events that might happen to us. We mostly prepare for after the fact. They have us bent over a stump and are humping the crap out of us. Americans don’t care for we are so far removed from reality. Even if there was a limited exchange the effects would still be life changing. Life threatening. Are you prepped for that.
    Civil unrest and bank collapse would be a walk in the park compared to facing atomic particles you can not see, cooking you from the inside out.

      Dont sound like much fun , does it ?
      Turning the whole planet into a giant microwave is sorta self defeating IMHO .
      I dont think it will happen for now , but i worry about countries like Iran with a nuke .

      I sometimes wonder if maybe Obama is a jihadist and is planning to take down the US by initiating a nuke event.
      This would explain his actions in the middle east.
      We are soooo screwed.

    Of course you all live on a ‘planet’ and think about what’s going on on your ‘planet’ but your planet is part of the ‘Universe’ and in case you missed it, no one has found any evidence of any civilization like ours that makes it off of their ‘planet’ and goes on to terrorize the other planets that live on their own and respect the limitations upon living beings set by the Universe.

    As biodegradable as mans greed. For the most common uranium isotope, U-238, the half-life is 4.5 billion years, about the age of the solar system. I figure we’ll need a pantry about 7900 miles in diameter.

  32. The Prophet says:

    Several years ago, the Chinese claimed that they had enough underground shelters to move the entire population of Beijing underground in 30 minutes. The US government doesn’t care about us. They indicated they don’t need or want us. We are being replaced by neo-slaves from the third world, and automation. What should we make of this?

  33. Killdozer says:

    Who the hell would want to shelter with 1000 or more random strangers in a gov bomb shelter anyways? If you want a bomb shelter build one yourself for god’s sake. Remember the fiasco at the superdome in New Orleans after hurricane Katrina? That’s what you’d be treated to in the gov bunker if you were lucky. No thank you. I’d rather take my chances with the fallout.

  34. Old Poor Richard says:

    Yah, well the Russians might have “Continuity of the Russian People” with all those bomb shelters, but we’ve got “Continuity of Government” so that our fearless leaders can bunker down in safety with their banker masters. I feel better.

    Just a short message to everyone: ALWAYS fact check, go outside the forums and websites you frequent, get all the perspectives (not just the conservative or the ones that support your beliefs) its extremely important to the integrity of all the information. Take science for example it requires meticulous fact checking, tests, re-tests, and peer reviewing. I know that some (and probably a lot of you discredit science as the devils work but just humor me) I could go through and disprove quite a few conspiracy theories on this site with simple fact checking. Anyways I hope you go and fact check, on sites other than Alex Jones Channel or Fox News. Have a fantastic day and remember you cant falsify last thursday.
