"We're Not Interested In A Fair Fight" – U.S. Army Commander Urges NATO To Confront Russia

Obama's warmongers rush headlong into WWIII

U.S. army commander in Europe says Russia is a “real threat” urging NATO to stay united. The alliance is not interested in a “fair fight with anyone” and wants to have “overmatch in all systems,” Lieutenant-General Frederick "Ben" Hodges believes.

“There is a Russian threat," Hodges told the Telegraph, maintaining that Russia is involved in ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine.

A key objective for NATO is not to let Russia outreach it in terms of capabilities, the general said.

"We're not interested in a fair fight with anyone," General Hodges stated. "We want to have overmatch in all systems. I don't think that we've fallen behind but Russia has closed the gap in certain capabilities. We don't want them to close that gap,” he revealed.


“The best insurance we have against a showdown is that NATO stands together,” he said, pointing to recent moves by traditionally neutral Sweden and Finland to cooperate more closely on defense with NATO.

Moscow has expressed “special concern” over Finnish and Swedish moves towards the alliance viewing it as a threat aimed against Russia.

“Contrary to past years, Northern European military cooperation is now positioning itself against Russia. This can undermine positive constructive cooperation,” Russia’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

Hodges also said US expects its allies to contribute financially to the security umbrella provided by the NATO alliance, as its member states have been failing to allocate 2 percent of every member nation’s GDP to NATO budget.


Hodges offering up the "security and prosperity" of total destruction that accompanies the newest NATO insanity

“I think the question for each country to ask is: are they security consumers or security providers?” the general demanded. “Do they bring capabilities the alliance needs?”

However, the general does not believe that the world is on the brink of another Cold War, saying that "the only thing that is similar now is that Russia and NATO have different views about what the security environment in Europe should be.”

"I don't think it's the same as the Cold War,” he said, recalling “gigantic forces” and “large numbers of nuclear weapons” implemented in Europe a quarter of a century ago. “That [Cold War] was a different situation.”

“We did very specific things then that are no longer relevant. We don't need 300,000 soldiers in Europe. Nobody can afford that anymore,” General Hodges acknowledged.

However, there was a sharp increase in the intensity of the training of NATO troops near the borders of Russia last year, Russian General Staff reported.

“In 2014, the intensity of NATO’s operational and combat training activities has grown by 80 percent,” said Lieutenant General Andrey Kartapolov, head of the Main Operation Directorate of General Staff.

U.S. Water Systems May Be Used For WMD Attack

One of most vulnerable infrastructures in the United States, and upgrading for these facilities is being ignored - purposely - by the Obama and the Congress criminals in the hope they WILL be targeted  

NEW EASTERN OUTLOOK

The National BioWatch Stakeholders’ Conference will be taking place this Fall and you can bet your booties that the four day symposium will be an exercise in studied futility.


It is not that the focus of the conference is irrelevant. Hardly that. In fact, the issue of protecting the public from an act of bioterrorism could not be more critical. 

And it is not that the US government is bumbling around in the dark where private enterprise could step in more efficiently. Even given the recent failure of the Generation 3 BioWatch technology to gain Congressional and DHS approval, the technology at hand for detecting an airborne release is still state of the art.


BioWatch was launched in 2003, prompted by the anthrax laced letters which were put into the mail shortly after September 11, 2001. Letters containing anthrax spores were mailed to several news media offices and two Democratic US Senators, killing five people and infecting 17 others.

BioWatch has been described as “the nation’s first early warning network of sensors to detect biological attack.”

This is how it works: In about thirty cities across America, filters have been mounted, secret sensors sniffing the air and picking up microbes which will be analyzed on a regular basis at a nearby lab. Should there be a biological weapons release into the atmosphere in any of these cities, alarm bells will ring in the nation’s capitol and help will be speeding its way to the afflicted areas.

Critics of BioWatch have pointed to the numerous false positives associated with the program. In addition, other concerns focus on the inability of the sensors to detect underground or indoor releases. Critics have also pointed out that sensors placed in large, polluted cities may fail entirely to detect a biological release.

But on one pivotal issue the critics have remained silent. With billions of dollars reported as having been pumped into BioWatch from its inception, there is little attention being given to the potential for an act of biological terrorism through the nation’s water supplies.

The U.S. Water Systems Are Wide Open For A Potential Act Of Bioterrorism

In fact, the configuration of the nation’s public water systems, a configuration which contains parallel water mains, would provide the perfect, undetectable delivery system for a bio/ chem attack. Blueprints obtained by this reporter—and obtained with some difficulty, it should be mentioned—clearly show two parallel lines running down each and every street in all cities where blueprints were obtained, cross connected by service lines, which provide water into residences. Remote controlled valves positioned on the second line indicate that whatever that second line contains is being withheld by these valves.

But withheld why, and until when?




The system as it is currently configured would allow for the contents of the second line to dump into some houses while being withheld from others, through the opening and closing of the remote controlled valves. In this manner,whatever is in the second line can be selectively delivered to some residences, while leaving others untouched and uncontaminated.

And those behind this attack could remain safe from its effects. Not so with an airborne release. The automation of this system, provided by the remote controlled valves, would keep the public from being alerted that something was going on with the water system.

It has been suggested that, upon the initiation of a pandemic-level event, quarantines may be imposed. That way, whomever is getting the pathogen pulsed into his residence via the water lines will be assured of getting the maximum dose.

If this sounds like science fiction, consider this: Following the events of September 2001, the US Congress passed a piece of legislation, entitled The Critical Infrastructure Information Act, making it a federal crime punishable by prison time for a government official to reveal information about “protected infrastructure.” Given the revelations here and here, this apparently includes information about the second water line. The existence of one water main is all that government officials will generally admit to, even when confronted by blueprints providing evidence to the contrary.

In fact, when the City of Los Angeles was tendered a request for blueprints, they wrote back agreeing to provide redactedblueprints. And redact they did. The City of Los Angeles provided this reporter entirely new blueprints, constructed at taxpayers’ expense, with each and every print stamped REDACTED. And these prints showed one line and one line only, controverted by blueprints for the same blocks obtained by this reporter through the foreman who was supervising the street work. These other, non-altered prints all showed two parallel water mains.

In other words, the public is not entitled to knowledge about the second line.

National Security or Keep them In the Dark?

Given the enormous amount of work that has gone into reconfiguring water systems throughout the US (and apparently the work to reconfigure the system into a double line system began around the time that President Nixon announced that the US was unilaterally abandoning its offensive biological weapons program), the BioWatch program could be viewed as a considerable…..distraction. Over 40 billion dollars have already been allocated for BioWatch since its inception. How much, do you think, has gone into protecting the nation’s water supply?



The Department of Homeland Security has put together a number of BTRAs (Biological Threat Risk Assessments). Not one mention of the risk posed by the double line water system could be found. The Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Homeland Security assure us of their continued efforts to protect critical infrastructure. According to the 2010 National Infrastructure Protection Plan, Water Sector,

“…utilities have conducted risk assessments and based on the findings of those assessments, owners and operators have created or updated emergency response plans (ERPs) and implemented numerous protective enhancements.


These enhancements include: (1) improving control of access to utilities; 

(2) expanding physical barriers against vulnerabilities by installing equipment such as backflow prevention devices in pipes and locks on fire hydrants and manholes; 

(3) increasing control over access, delivery, and storage of chemicals and; 

(4) hardening cyber network control systems by installing virus- detection software and firewalls, and in some cases by taking control systems offline.”

However, when the EPA was recently contacted with questions about the double line system and also what sorts of tests were used to ascertain the safety and drinkability of US water, that agency was unable to respond. Robert Daguillard, with the national press office for the EPA, offered a canned and entirely irrelevant reply to direct questions, touting the monitoring systems and various Presidential directives. He declined to respond to the question concerning the purpose of the second line and was also unable to reply to questions related to the type of tests run to ascertain the potability of tap water.

Having been advised that the Spokane blueprint was only one of many, obtained from a number of different cities in different states– all of which delineate that problematic and questionable second line– the EPA spokesperson had only this to say: In an email dated August 7, 2015, Daguillard wrote, “The blueprint shows a 36″ main and a 12″ distribution line with service connections. Based on this generic schematic, EPA cannot provide additional information.”

When Pushed To The Wall, “Deny Everything!”

The City of Spokane was contacted and their public affairs officer, Marlene Feist, insisted that the two parallel lines were not connected. The blueprints clearly show that a single service line runs from both pipes—Feist denies this. Other prints obtained at the same photo shoot contain a legend which indicate that both mains are both placed at a depth of 5.5 feet, again supporting the perception that the two lines are connected and that the contents of one or of both can therefore dump into any residence. Feist also refuted the veracity of the written legend on the prints which stated the 5.5 ft depth for both lines, in her continued efforts to deny the reality that the two mains are cross connected and using the same service lines from mains to house.


The FBI maintains a WMD tip line. The individual answering that call declined to speak to a member of the press, instead referring the call to the Press Office.

Ayn Dietrich, the press officer with the FBI area office covering Spokane, stated that she could not release information about the double line water system.

It appears that an act of biological terrorism or a pandemic-level event, either naturally occurring or engineered, is on the horizon. 



A number of those-in-the-know, including former Senators Bill Graham and Jim Talent (now with the WMD center in Washington, DC) as well as individuals with the Department of Homeland Security have been tolling the bell, warning of an imminent attack

Recently, The Guardian newspaper in England also announced the inevitability of a such an event. Predictive programming, such as in the movie Contagion, assure us that the US government is the “good guy” and will do everything in its power to protect us when “The Big One” hits.

One has to ask, though. With all this moolah being funneled into protecting the citizenry from an airborne attack andunknownbillions of dollars having been spent to reconfigure water systems to provide a covert delivery system for a waterborne attack, one does have to ask.

And this is the one question which no one in the US government appears able to answer:

Hey buddy, what’s that second line for?

Russia To Kill Drones, Missiles With 10km - Range Super - High Frequency Cannon

Russia pioneering the way for shoot-down technology in the U.S. - and what will soon be a booming and very profitable new high-tech industry  

RT
08/18/2015

Russia’s Rostec Corporation is to unveil a super-high frequency weapon capable of taking down all kinds of drones, missiles and other high precision weapons. The presentation will be made at the Army-2015 military expo.


Russia's answer to Obama's drones
The Mosow Radio Engineering Institute has developed a super-high frequency (SHF) ‘cannon’. 

It’s designed to knock out aircraft, drones, guided missiles and any airborne high precision weapons using electronics.

The cannon creates an air-exclusion zone within a reported radius of over 10 kilometers around the defended object or installation, though the system’s exact characteristics are classified.



“This mobile microwave irradiation complex performs off-frequency rejection of electronics aboard low-altitude aerial targets and warheads of high precision weapons,” a source in Rostec Corporation told TASS, adding this system puts close range air defenses on a whole new level.

“In terms of performance capabilities, the complex has no competitors in the world,” the source said. All the equipment is mounted on a tracked Buk missile air defense transportation platform.


Russia has just made it clear that what goes up can and will be shot down

“When installed on a special platform, an SHF ‘cannon’ provides all-around defense,” the source said, adding the complex is also planned to be used to test domestic-made military radio-electronic systems for resistance against high-power microwave radiation.

The SHF ‘cannon’ will be unveiled in the classified area of Army-2015 expo, an international military forum that will take place at the ‘Patriot’ military amusement park outside Moscow between June 16 and 19.




In April this year, the US Navy released a video detailing its LOCUST technology – a new tool allowing multiple drones to coordinate and swarm the enemy. Reportedly, it’s designed to protect large US vessels. However, when armed with warheads they turn into offensive weapons.

An attack of a squadron of drones on a defended installation makes the task of taking them out really troublesome and resource-consuming for existing air defense systems.

The out-of-band 360-degree radiation suppression by an SHF ‘cannon’ looks like a universal solution for maintaining secure air defense against swarming drone attacks.
