YES, US & Russia Suspended INF Treaty - NOT Imminent Nuclear War

Robert Walker at Science 2.0 blogs - 17 hours ago
This is another of my articles to help people who get terrified by news stories, which often get exaggerated titles even by responsible journalists. In this case many are scared that withdrawal from the INF is going to lead to a nuclear war. So, yes, it's in the news now that US has announced it will withdraw from the INF treaty, and Russia has responded with an identical move the day after. The US withdrawal has been expected for some weeks now and the Russian symmetrical response is hardly much of a surprise. *IT IS NOT A DECLARATION OF NUCLEAR WAR.* This is an example story.

The story of Anastasia Vashukevich [AKA- Nastya Rybka] isn't really *that* extraordinary. 28 year old Eastern European hooker-- in this case a Belarusian model-- didn't marry a man who would one day become the illegitimate "president" of the United States, but instead was plying her trade on a oligarch's yacht when she had an opportunity to make 16 hours of surreptitious video and audio tapes of the oligarch, the notorious Oleg Deripaska, chatting with Putin's deputy prime minister Sergei Prikhodko, about stealing the U.S. election for Russian puppet Donald J. Trump. After that sh... more »

America's Other Big Plan for Nuclear Weapons (And It Has Nothing to Do with War or Russia)

Steve Weintz at Test Feed Using Fields - 1 day ago
*Steve Weintz* *Security, * [image: Wikimedia Commons] Washington had all sorts of plans to use nuclear weapons for lots of things. But they never happened—for very obvious reasons. The year 1953 was a busy one. A world still emerging from the destruction of World War II experienced success—Jonas Salk’s pill vaccine, Edmund Hillary and Tenzeng Norgay, summiting of Mount Everest. But it also experienced stalemate such as the armistice in Korea and the Soviet H-bomb. On December 9, 1953, at the end of his first year in office, Dwight Eisenhower gave a speech to the United Nations ... more »

Does Russia Have a Plan to Solve the North Korea Nuclear Crisis?

Stratfor Worldview at Test Feed Using Fields - 1 day ago
*Stratfor Worldview* *Security, Eurasia* [image: Reuters] Some think so. What Happened: The Russian government reportedly made a secret proposal to North Korea in the fall of 2018 to construct a nuclear power plant in the country in exchange for North Korea dismantling its nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles, The Washington Post reported Jan. 29, citing unnamed U.S. officials. The Russian envoy to North Korea, meanwhile, denied the report. Why It Matters: Russia's alleged offer would imply attempts to insert itself into the negotiation process over North Korea's nuclear progr... more »

Bob Dinn at balance10 - 1 day ago
630. They will ask "How can we best serve on Earth to effect the utmost benefit at present?" One must restore the health of Earth. By innumerable ways one must carry out the world task of regeneration. One must bear in mind that people have destroyed the resources of Earth without mercy. They are ready to poison the earth and the air. They have laid waste the forests, these storehouses of prana. They have decimated animal life, forgetting that animal energy nourishes the earth. They believe that untried chemical compounds can take the place of prana and earthly emanations. T... more »
