According to this 2016 story over at the NY Times, back in the early years of the presidency of Barack Obama, the US military developed an elaborate cyberattack plan to cripple the defenses of Iran by knocking out their communications system and taking down the nation’s power grid. And while the plan, code-named ‘Nitro Zeus’, was eventually shelved after the Iranian nuclear agreement was reached, the plan which involved thousands of military intelligence personnel spending millions of dollars to place ‘electrical implants’ into the Iranian computer network may have been a good ‘dry run’ for what recently happened in Venezuela.
With even Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro blaming US cyber-attacks for the catastrophic ‘lights out’ situation that Venezuela now finds itself in, and Pentagon and NATO military planners having long considered the month of March to be the ‘best month’ to go to war, we’ll take a look within this ANP story at ‘Nitro Zeus’. We’ll also look over a new World War 3 simulation just conducted by RAND that should put an immediate end to any discussions of war against Russia that might now be being held by members of the US military or the ‘crazies’ in Washington DC who insanely think such a war would go well for us.
As Zero Hedge reported in this recent story, a new World War 3 simulation by globalist think tank RAND has found that in a global war between the US and Russia/China, the US “gets its ass handed to it” according to RAND analyst David Ochmanek who made sure not to mince his words. So we can officially surmise with RAND’s findings that anybody within the US military or government still pushing for war with Russia is a ‘globalist’ who WANTS the complete destruction of America.
While mutually assured destruction (MAD) long stood in the way of a deadly World War 3 breaking out between the US and Russia, as Dr. Peter Vincent Pry had reported on ANP back on March 14th of 2018, “MAD is no longer mutual” with Russia making huge gains in nuclear superiority over us during Barack Obama’s 8 years in office, thanks largely to his ‘NEW START’ nuclear treaty.
And while this latest simulation by RAND shows how US forces experience absolutely devastating losses in one scenario after another, our military in this simulation is totally unable to thwart Russia or China from accomplishing their own objectives which is simply to annihilate Western forces. From this Zero Hedge story.:
In simulated World War III scenarios, the U.S. continues to lose against Russia and China, two top war planners warned last week. “In our games, when we fight Russia and China, blue gets its ass handed to it” RAND analyst David Ochmanek said Thursday.
“We lose a lot of people. We lose a lot of equipment. We usually fail to achieve our objective of preventing aggression by the adversary,” Ochmanek warned.
In the next military conflict, which some believe may come as soon as the mid-2020s, all five battlefield domains: land, sea, air, space, and cyberspace, will be heavily contested, suggesting the U.S. could have a difficult time in achieving superiority as it has in prior conflicts.
The simulated war games showed, the “red” aggressor force often destroys U.S. F-35 Lightning II stealth fighters on the runway, sends several Naval fleets to the depths, destroys US military bases, and through electronic warfare, takes control of critical military communication systems. In short, a gruesome, if simulated, annihilation of some of the most modern of US forces.
“In every case I know of,” said Robert Work, a former deputy secretary of defense with years of wargaming experience, “the F-35 rules the sky when it’s in the sky, but it gets killed on the ground in large numbers.”
So, as Russia and China develop fifth-generation fighters and hypersonic missiles, “things that rely on sophisticated base infrastructures like runways and fuel tanks are going to have a hard time,” Ochmanek said. “Things that sail on the surface of the sea are going to have a hard time.”
As we’ve reported numerous times on ANP and News.com.au recently reported, Russia and Vladimir Putin have unveiled 6 new ‘super weapons’ over the past year including their new unstoppable hypersonic nuclear weapons as well as POSEIDON, a nuclear powered submarine capable of delivering a radioactive tsunami to cities up and down the East coast within minutes.
As former Ronald Reagan Assistant Secretary to the Treasury for Economic Policy Paul Craig Roberts warned not long ago, Russia also could wipe out the entire East Coast of the US with 5 or 6 appropriately placed nukes, with their ‘Satan 2’ nukes capable of wiping out an area the size of Texas according to this CNBC story.
Several different high ranking members of the US Senate and US Military have also come straight out and admitted that there is no way in the universe that we can stop Russia’s new hypersonic nuclear weapons, including US Air Force General John Hyten as well as Republican US Senator Jim Inhofe who both warn we’re sitting ducks to Russia’s new nukes.
So why would any US politician, member of the military or member of the ‘deep state’ actually WANT a war with Russia in 2019, when even RAND has shown that such a war would be a war that the US cannot possibly win? We’ll come back once again to a theory that the globalists will surely label us ‘Islamophobists’ for having but political correctness will never shut us up nor will political correctness ever be used to silence the truth as long as we have something to say about it.
As the National Review had reported back on September 11th of 2015 in this story titled “Islamic Extremists Are Trying To Hasten The Coming of the Mahdi”, “to misunderstand the nature and threat of evil is to risk being blindsided by it.” From their story.:
There is a dramatic shift underway in the Muslim world. The most serious threat we face in the Middle East and North Africa is no longer radical Islam but ‘apocalyptic Islam’.
We face not just one but two regional regimes whose rulers are driven not merely by violent political ideology, or by extremist theology, but by apocalyptic, genocidal eschatology, or End Times theology.
The first is the Islamic Republic of Iran. The second is the Islamic State, or ISIS. The leaders of the former are Shia. The latter are Sunni. Both believe that we are living in the End of Days as predicted in their ancient prophecies. Both believe that any moment now their messiah, the Mahdi, will be revealed on Earth as he establishes his global Islamic kingdom and impose sharia law. Both believe that Jesus will return not as the Savior or Son of God but as a lieutenant to the Mahdi, and that he will force non-Muslims to convert or die.
What’s more, both believe that the Mahdi will come only when the world is engulfed in chaos and carnage. They openly vow not simply to attack but to annihilate the United States and Israel. Iran and ISIS are both eager to hasten the coming of the Mahdi. Both believe that the Day of Judgment is coming soon, when they will be either rewarded for their actions or condemned to hell for eternity. And both are receiving relatively minimal international opposition. Consequently, both believe that Allah is on their side, that the wind is at their back, and that victory is both assured and imminent.
Might there be holdovers from the Obama administration still within the US military or ‘deep state’ who follow that same apocalyptic, end times theology which actually longs for nuclear war to bring in their ‘mahdi’?
So if the globalists who’ve been continually pushing the ‘Russia-collusion’ lie and are seemingly itching for a war with Russia get their way, what might such a war with Russia and China bring to America besides the death of potentially hundreds of millions in this country (except those politicians who got their ‘golden tickets’ to the doomsday bunkers)?
When thinking about what war with Russia might look like, we can’t help but come back to this story over at Club Orlov titled “A Russian Warning” within which several different Russian citizens living here in the US put together a story that went mega-viral when it was originally published prior to the 2016 election and for good reason. From their story.:
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.
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.
In fact, as the Club Orlov story elaborated upon in its conclusion that we’ve republished below, even if through some outrageous miracle the US were to be successful in taking out the entire Russian chain of command, their ‘dead hand’ system would launch a crippling nuclear strike upon America that would wipe us off the map. What US politician wants that? From Club Orlov.:
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.
With Venezuela now a ticking time bomb with war potential war hanging in the balance between the US and Russia as the Venezuelan people suffer through something that we wouldn’t wish upon anybody with their 21st century nation quite literally sent back to the ‘dark ages’, and quite possibly via the US military and ‘Nitro Zeus’, and potentially tens of thousands to millions dying in the days and weeks ahead, the title of this recent story over at the NY Post says it all: “This Is Chaos: Death Toll Rises And Protests Rage On As Venezuela Blackout Continues”.
And even if we could possibly win a war against Russia, with their ‘dead hand’ system able to use artificial intelligence to launch all of their nuclear weapons upon the US, wiping us off of the political map, who actually ‘wins’ except for the globalists who’ve long been seeking to destroy America or the radical Islamists who believe such a war would usher in their mahdi?
And did the US military take down the power grid in Venezuela as part of a revamped, recycled ‘Nitro Zeus’? Knowing that ‘Nitro Zeus’ is in their ‘bag of tricks’ absolutely hints that they’d love to use it. From Mint Press News.:
CARACAS, VENEZUELA — For nearly four days, much of Venezuela has been without power, bringing the country’s embattled economy to a near standstill. Though power is now returning, the outage saw U.S. officials and politicians blame the Venezuelan government for the crisis while officials in Caracas accused the U.S. of conducting “sabotage” and launching cyberattacks that targeted its civilian power grid as well as of employing saboteurs within Venezuela.
Although many mainstream media outlets have echoed the official U.S. government response, some journalists have strayed from the pack. One notable example is Kalev Leetaru, who wrote at Forbes that “the United States remotely interfering with its [Venezuela’s] power grid is actually quite realistic.”
Leetaru also noted that “timing such an outage to occur at a moment of societal upheaval in a way that delegitimizes the current government, exactly as a government-in-waiting has presented itself as a ready alternative, is actually one of the tactics” he had previously explored in a 2015 article detailing U.S. government hybrid warfare tactics “to weaken an adversary prior to conventional invasion or to forcibly and deniably effect a transition in a foreign government.”
With Venezuela a mess that could get much worse and drag the entire planet down with it should war break out over Maduro, Venezuela and/or their natural resources, all eyes and ears should be wide open in the days and weeks ahead.
In the first video below, videographer Franklin Media TV takes a look at this recent Zero Hedge story and RAND’s study that shows America would be annihilated should war between the US and Russia/China break out while in the 2nd video below, videographer The Last American Vagabond takes a look at Venezuela’s massive power outage and the very real potential that the US government via ‘Nitro Zeus’ might have been involved with the takedown.
