36,000 troops, 200 aircraft & 60 vessels: NATO launches biggest war games in 13 years

NATO has started its biggest exercise since 2002 with 36,000 international troops from 30 states, including non-NATO nations, participating in the drills which are taking place at sea, in the air and across the territory of three European states.

The alliance has kicked off its massive “Trident Juncture 2015” exercises which will last until November 16. Along with the NATO member states, seven more partner nations are participating in the drills: Australia, Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Finland, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Sweden and Ukraine.

Some 36,000 troops as well as more than 60 warships and about 200 aircraft will participate in the drills which makes it the biggest since 2002 when about 40,000 troops took part in NATO’s “Strong Resolve” military exercise.

“The purpose of the exercise is to train and test the NATO Response Force, a highly ready and technologically advanced multinational force made up of land, air, maritime and Special Forces components,” said General Hans Lothar Domrose, the Commander of Joint Force Command Brunssum.

“Enhancing our response forces is a key part of NATO’s overall effort to adapt to emerging security challenges. TRJE15 [Trident Juncture 2015] has been designed to ensure that our concepts and procedures will work in the event of a real crisis because our job is to always be prepared to defend the people, territory, and values of this Alliance,” he added.

The drills will consist of two parts: the Command Post Exercise (CPX) for Strategic and Operational level staff, and the Live Exercise (LIVEX) for tactical level troop engagements.

The CPX, which will last until October 16, will include “training, evaluation and certification activities” of the command structure of the NATO Response Force. The European Union and the African Union are also going to participate in the CPX.

Obama In Ecstasy As “Nuclear Tsunami” Ignites Islamic End Times Fears

An absolutely shocking new report prepared by the Ministry of Defense (MoD) for the use of President Putin during his upcoming meeting with President Obama at the United Nations warns that the American leader has become “ecstatic” (defined as the mental transport or rapture from the contemplation of divine things) and is “without doubt” under the influence of Sunni Muslim messianic fervor believing that his actions will accelerate the coming of the Al-Mahdi (the Mahdi).

According to this report, since taking office in 2009, President Obama has affiliated himself with the Sunni Islamic theocracy of Saudi Arabia, which by law forbids religious minorities from practicing their religion, and has created for himself a de facto alternate capitol city in Beverly Hills, California, which hundreds of Saudi princes now call home, some of them even being allowed to sexually brutalize women.

Of the closest of these Saudi princes to President Obama, this report continues, is prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, who in 1988 helped his young protégé, who would become the future American President, to enter into Harvard Law School.

Another of prince Al-Waleed bin Talal’s protégés, this report explains, was an Iraqi Islamic scholar named Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi who, in 2009, President Obama ordered released from the US militaries  Camp Bucca detention center in Iraq where he had been held as a “grave security threat” since 2004.

Upon President Obama ordering al-Baghdadi’s freed in 2009, this report says, US Army Colonel Kenneth King, then the commanding officer of Camp Bucca, failed to comprehend that this Saudi trained Sunni Islamic scholar would become the world’s most feared terrorist, but did note that al-Baghdadi stated upon his release, “I’ll see you guys in New York”.

Immediately after al Baghdadi was released, however, this report continues, President Obama further ordered the US military to turn over to the Iraqi army billions-of-dollars of weapons, armor and other war making materials which were then stationed in and around the Iraqi city of Mosel.

This is a critical point to note, this report explains, because when President Obama failed to come to an agreement with Iraq to allow US forces to remain in Iraq, and they were subsequently all removed in 2011, al-Baghdadi’s forces captured Mosel as Iraqi government forces fled thus giving him, in essence, a “ready made army”…along with over $425 million in cash and gold making al Baghdadi and his followers “the world’s richest terror force”.

Once armed with weapons and war material generously supplied by President Obama, this report says, al-Baghdadi then solidified his forces becoming what is known now as the Islamic State…ISIS/ISIL…declaring that he was the now the rightful leader of Islam, immediately after which he began receiving massive funding from not only Saudi Arabia, but Kuwait and Qatar too.

Critical to note about why President Obama and his Saudi and Gulf State allies have supported al Baghdadi and his ISIS/ISIL terrorists, this report states, is the Sunni Islamic belief that our world is in the “end times”…a belief also shared by Shiite Muslims.

In the competing “end times” narrative between the Sunni and Shiite branches of Islam, however, this report explains, President Obama has sided with the most radical version supported by Saudi Arabia and its Sunni allies…which calls for a world being led by Muslims and the extermination by genocide of all disbelievers, or their conversion.

Chillingly, this report continues, this “end time” view of President Obama’s and Saudi Arabia’s ISIS/ISIL was recently confirmed by German journalist Jürgen Todenhöfer, the only Western reporter ever allowed to have access to the high command of this terrorist state, who grimly warned that ISIS is a ‘nuclear ‘tsunami’ that wants to wipe hundreds-of-millions from face of the earth and stated: “I don’t see anyone who has a real chance to stop them.”

Even though Todenhöfer doesn’t see anyway to stop ISIS/ISL, this report says, President Putin does, and as evidenced by the tacit” agreement secretly reached between the US and Russia this past week.

Standing in President Putin’s way, however, of actually achieving this agreement to end ISIS/ISIL, this report warns, is President Obama himself…who on 19 September requested a meeting with President Putin proposing two possible dates, but then yesterday lied and said President Putin requested this meeting stating that Russia’s leader was “desperate.

Obama In Ecstasy As “Nuclear Tsunami” Ignites Islamic End Times Fears

Even worse, says this report, President Obama, in his and Saudi Arabia’s latest effort to protect ISIS/ISIL, blocked Russia’s proposal to include the ISIS/ISIL on the UN Security Council’s sanctions list as an independent organization.

And going from the merely frustrating to the outright comical in dealing with the ISIS/ISIL global threat, this report continues, President Obama not only supported making Saudi Arabia the head of the United Nations Human Rights Council this week, his administration actually said they welcomed it!

As to how President Obama can morally justify making Saudi Arabia the UN leader in human rights, this report states, defies all common logic as that nation has not only beheaded over 100 people this year, including children, but has, also, copied ISIS/ISIL and reinstated the barbaric ritual of crucifying to death those who break their religious laws.

To if President Obama’s messianic fervor in Islamic “end times” theology can be stopped, this report concludes, is not known.

What is known though is if President Obama’s madness isn’t stopped, our world will plunged into total war.

Russia Disseminates “September War” Battle Plan As 90,000 Ukrainian Troops Set To Invade

Russia Disseminates “September War” Battle Plan As 90,000 Ukrainian Troops Set To Invade

A truly apocalyptic Ministry of Defense (MoD) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that strategic battle plans have now been disseminated to all military and special forces commands in response to the expected mass invasion by US-led Ukrainian troops of separatist held region Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) and Autonomous Republic of Crimea ahead of what is expected to be an “Armageddon-like blow” to Western financial capitols on 23 September.

Dubbed the “September War” by Federation defense planners, this report notes that on 23 September, Ukraine is due to pay a massive $500 million bond payment it is not able to do… which would then cause their default on a $3 billion bond payment to Russia meaning it would have to be paid immediately too.

Rather than risking the collapse of their already falling apart global economic system due to Ukraine falling into default, this report explains, Western capitols, led by the Obama regime, are “factoring” into this already fraught with danger situation a war with Russia as an “outlet” to divert their population’s attention away from the devastation of their own economies.

Security Council Secretary Nikolay Patrushev warned the West against this war earlier today by stating, “Both Ukraine and the forces currently governing the country from the outside should realize that the resumption of hostilities leads to further decline in the Ukrainian economy, a greater number of hostilities, destruction of infrastructure and affects negatively the regional and international situation.”, but further noted that pro-Kiev armed units in eastern Ukraine now total 90,000 men and officers, 450 tanks, 203 salvo artillery units, and five Tochka-U missile complexes.

The Defense Ministry of the Donetsk People’s Republic, Eduard Basurinearlier, yesterday grimly noted the “master plan” to be used by Ukraine in launching their “September War” by stating:

Information has been received about the plan of forthcoming actions by the Ukrainian army from a source in the Ukrainian General Staff and, no matter how strange this may seem, there are still true officers there who do not want to fight against their own people. 

Kiev plans to deliver two converging blows in the direction of the settlement of Uspenka to defeat the DPR and advance to the border with Russia and subsequently prevent civilians from reaching the Russian territory.  Along with this, two groupings [of Kiev’s forces] are intended to launch an offensive in the Donetsk direction north and south of Donetsk towards Ilovaisk, close the circle around the republic’s capital and encircle the city. 

Further on, active offensive operations will be launched in the Luhansk direction with the aim to advance to the border with Russia.”

As these 90,000 US-led Ukraine forces are preparing to usher in World War III to protect Western “bankstersagainst 40,000 separatist fighters, this MoD report continues, NATO “comically” warned the DPR against grabbing anymore land, while at the same time, “equally as comical”, Secretary of Defense Ash Carter warned the Pentagon that Russia is now an “existential threat” to America.

As to how Russia could possibly be an “existential threat” to the United States, this report notes, is never explained by the Obama regime whose military spending is a staggering nearly $600 billion a year (compared to Russia spending $70-80 billion)…and as President Putin warned this past June: “Publish a map and mark all the US bases on it. You will see the difference between the US and Russia.”

Even the highly respected American press organization CounterPunch has noticed the sheer insanity of the Obama regime wanting war with Russia, this report says, and who in their article today titled Deadly Cheering for War in Ukraine by Western Press stated:

The editors of the [Washington] Post are pulling off a ruse. Kyiv has not abided by a single clause of Minsk-2, and the regime’s foreign backers, including in the editorial offices of the nearly all of Western media, keep a careful silence on the subject. So let’s pause for a moment to reflect.

The Washington Post (and some other mainstream media) publishes articles and photo stories by journalists in and around Kyiv-controlled eastern Ukraine.

But the Post‘s journalists can’t seem to provide examples of how “Russia’s forces continue to shell and rocket Ukrainian positions on a daily basis”.

Surely, if the situation is that severe, there must be no shortage of visual examples to provide to readers? And surely the U.S. government can provide satellite images to mainstream media of the “9,000 Russian soldiers” in eastern Ukraine as well as other examples of Russian intervention? Unless… it’s all, or mostly, make believe.

On the rebel side of eastern Ukraine, there is no shortage of examples of grim, daily shelling by Ukrainian armed forces, which are backed by NATO. Alas, and not by accident, such reports never, ever grace the pages of the Western media.”

And as the “grim daily shelling” of civilians by US-led Ukrainian forces continues in Western media silence, this report further states, it goes without its irony that the American right-wing hawk Henry Kissinger and left-wing British Labour Leader socialist Jeremy Corbyn have now united together warning the West of their insanity in launching this “September War”… and which Kissinger actually stated what it was really about, “Breaking Russia has become the objective for US”.

Though not stated in this MoD report, it is worth noting that even the left-leaning American political website Vox Media is now warning of this “September War” too, and as they chillingly stated in their article titled How World War III Became Possible:

Europe today looks disturbingly similar to the Europe of just over 100 years ago, on the eve of World War I. It is a tangle of military commitments and defense pledges, some of them unclear and thus easier to trigger. Its leaders have given vague signals for what would and would not lead to war. Its political tensions have become military buildups. Its nations are teetering on an unstable balance of power, barely held together by a Cold War–era alliance that no longer quite applies.”

To if the American and European people themselves will be able to awaken before this war starts there remains no evidence as the vast majority of these peoples still remain asleep in their slumber of propaganda filled celebrity trivia news…but from they will, undoubtedly, soon be shaken from by the noise right outside their very windows.

Putin Signs “September War” Order Authorizing Nuclear Attack On NATO Forces

Putin Signs “September War” Order Authorizing Nuclear Attack On NATO Forces

The Ministry of Defense (MoD) is reporting today that President Putin has signed a “September War” order authorizing atomic weapon first strikes on NATO forces as fears grow within the Kremlin that the Obama regime is about to unleash a massive attack in Ukraine against both separate forces and the Autonomous Republic of Crimea.

President Putin signed this grave war order in Crimea early today during his security meeting with top Federation military leaders, this report says, and publically noted the Kremlins concerns by stating:

It is evident that the threat on the part of external forces to destabilize in this or that way the situation on the peninsula remains: either to play a nationalistic card or, using these or those mistakes, blunders, inefficient actions of the authorities, to direct the citizens’ just concern to a destructive alley. Some capital cities speak openly on this subject, speaking of the necessity to conduct subversive activities; relevant structures are being formed, personnel for acts of sabotage, radical propaganda is recruited and trained.”

Upon President Putin’s signing of this war order, this report says, over 9,000 troops and 3,000 combat vehicles of the Federations Iskander-M tactical ballistic missile system batteries began their immediate 800 kilometers (497 miles) redeployment to the Astrakhan Oblast where they will begin operating within the Southern Military District.

Raising the Kremlins fears of war even more, this report continues, is the 65,000-strong army Ukraine has amassed on the front lines near Donetsk which MoD experts warn will attack simultaneously with planned Western terror attacks in Crimea in a “misguided attempt” to force the Federation to defend only the latter, instead of the former.

As preparatory artillery barrages from US-led Ukrainian forces have already struck fear within the European Union (EU) of this coming wars outbreak, this report notes, crisis talks between Germany and France are now being scheduled, which President Putin will not attend, though he may attend a later one.

Federation preparations, however, this report states, are “much more severe” as at least 50,000 highly trained troops are prepared to immediately intervene in Ukraine once war starts, and the massive buildup of the 20th Army along the Western front continues at an accelerated pace.

This MoD report further notes that President Putin’s order extends to 15 October the massive air defense drills now ongoing in Ashuluk, which is about 500 kilometers (310 miles) from the Federation’s border with eastern Ukraine should they be needed to fight in this war too.

And with tens-of-thousands of Western troops pouring into Spain for Exercise Trident Juncture 2015, which NATO calls the “most ambitious” in its “modern history, MoD experts in this report say, the expected last week of September beginning of this unprecedented war provocation is what will “trigger” the beginning of war in Ukraine.

With outgoing US Army chief of staff, General Ray Odierno, stating this past week that Russia is the top military threat to the United States, this report says, it is curious as to why this would be so as America already spends more for militarism and war making than all other countries in the world combined.

As the US has conducted a number of secret military drills over the summer, the results of which left American defense officials and military forces worried that their county is not prepared for a sustained war against Russia, MoD analysts in this report further note, the Obama regime is set to begin it anyway as they gear up for the onrushing economic apocalypse facing them next month.

And to how catastrophic this September economic apocalypse is going to be, the American dissident website InfoWars.com has, also, warned this week that outright panic” has now overtaken those who know what is coming.

Russia Threatens Sweden With Military Force

A Russian official warned today that military action will be taken, should Sweden decide to join NATO.

Russian ambassador, Viktor Tartarintsec, said in an interview that there will be “counter measures” and that “Russia will have to resort to a response of the military kind” while re-orientating their “troops and missiles”, should Sweden become an official member of NATO. He added that any “country that joins NATO, needs to be aware of the risks it is exposing itself to”.

“Russia is often described as an attacker who only thinks of conducting wars and threatening others,” he told DN, “I can guarantee that Sweden, which is an alliance-free nation, is not [currently] part of any military plans by Russian authorities. Sweden is not a target for our armed troops.”

In the interview, the ambassador implied that while Sweden may not currently be considered a “target” by Russia, this could change should they join the NATO alliance. One in three Swedes support joining NATO, according to a poll conducted last month. This is an increase from a 2012 poll indicating that only 17% of those in Sweden favored becoming a NATO member.

The increase is likely due to Russia’s renewed aggression that is currently taking place in Europe, which began with the annexation of Crimea last year, and the violence that continues to take place in Eastern Ukraine today. Russia however, blames the increase on “aggressive propaganda” being spread by Swedish media. Russia also denies any contribution to the Ukrainian crisis, and says that NATO is the aggressor, despite this threat being made against Sweden.

Though not an official member of NATO, Sweden is currently considered a close NATO partner. While not capable of triggering the “an attack on one is an attack on all” clause of the NATO charter, Sweden does take part in many military drills along side the alliance, some of which are currently taking place in Poland just miles away from Russian territory.


First Ever Russian-Egyptian Naval Drills to Be Held in Mediterranean

The first Russian-Egyptian naval exercises will be held in the Mediterranean Sea from June 6 to June 14, the Russian Defense Ministry’s press service said Saturday.

The drills are aimed at strengthening military cooperation between the two countries’ navies to promote security and stability at sea, according to the statement.

“Russian-Egyptian naval exercises ‘Friendship Bridge 2015’ will be held in the designated area of the Mediterranean Sea from June 6 to June 14, 2015.”

As part of the exercises, Russian and Egyptian warships, working with air support, are expected to protect shipping lanes from various threats and conduct live fire tactical training.

In May, Russian-Chinese first ever naval drills were also held in the Mediterranean. The crews involved completed a wide range of tasks – from maneuvering to anti-submarine and radio-electronic warfare. The active phase of the Naval Cooperation 2015 joint exercises between the Russian and Chinese Navies ended on May 21.


US Deploys B-52 Nuclear Bombers to Baltic Sea War Games

US Deploys B-52 Nuclear Bombers to Baltic Sea War Games

The United States has deployed three B-52 nuclear bombers to take part in military exercises with NATO partners in the Baltic region amid heightened tensions with Russia.

“The deployment demonstrates the United States’ ability to project its flexible, long-range global strike capability,” the US Strategic Command said in a statement on Friday.

Scores of ships and aircraft from 17 countries are participating in Baltic Sea naval drills as part of exercise BALTOPS, which began on Friday and will run through June 20.

Overall, 5,600 troops, 49 ships, 61 aircraft and a submarine will be involved in the US-led military exercises.

The war game comes as Washington seeks to reassure European allies amid heightened tensions with Russia over the crisis in Ukraine.

Russia views the drills as an indication of NATO’s encroachment on its borders and has organized a series of large-scale military exercises over the past months in the Baltic, Black Sea and Arctic region to show its military prowess.

The Obama administration is considering new “deterrence strategies” to prevent Russia from meddling in Europe.

The approach involves boosting militaries of allies and potential partners, expanding the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and increased training exercises, The Wall Street Journal reports.

The measures stem from a recognition that sanctions alone have failed to make Russian President Vladimir Putin reverse course.

“It’s clear the sanctions are working on the Russian economy, but what is not apparent is that that effect on his economy is deterring Putin from following the course that was evidenced in Crimea last year,” Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said Friday in Germany.

US President Barack Obama meets with leaders of European allies this weekend in Germany, where he is expected to push for a tougher stance against Moscow.
