Do you remember as a child in elementary school playing games like “Capture the flag” and “King of the hill”? As you grew older you were taught from a military perspective that military commanders want to occupy the high ground. If we go on to learn military strategy, we frequently encounter the admonitions that it is imperative to occupy the high ground. The master analyst of all warfare, Sun Tzu often spoke of this as well:
If enemy camp is on high ground, do not climb to launch attack.
The Ongoing Buildup At the North Pole
Under the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, which was finalized in 1982, countries can lay claim to the ocean floor well beyond their borders so long as they can provide convincing scientific evidence to prove that a particular seabed is an extension of their continental shelf. Already, countries have sovereign rights to resources within 200 nautical miles of their territorial waterways. For a country to determine whether they have economic sovereignty beyond that distance, the UN agreement requires comprehensive mapping that establishes some sort of geologic justification for the claim. And where the Arctic is concerned, Canada, the US, Norway, Russia, and Denmark have been amassing scientific evidence for more than a decade in an effort to increase their piece of this resource-rich pie. From a resource perspective, the wars have been fought for less significant reasons than what we are seeing transpire at the North Pole. However, the major reason to fight over the control of the North Pole is the same reason as we fought for the high ground in our children’s games, namely, military domination over our opponent.
The Military Significance of Occupying the North Pole
Take one more look at the Arctic map at the top of the page. If Russia can complete its task of establishing military dominance over the North Pole, it will be free to attack in any direction against high value targets. These hypothetical military advances coming out of the North Pole will force both NATO and the United States to shift into a defensive posture in order to prepare for a northern invasion coming out of the North Pole.
On any given morning, the Russians could attack into the territories of the Scandinavian countries, thus threatening Europe. The nations of Eastern Europe (e.g. Hungary, Poland), are already living under fear of invasion from the East. Now, they would potentially be caught in a vice from the North. This would make NATO’s defense of Eastern Europe virtually indefensible.
Simultaneously, Russia could sweep down from the North Pole and attack through Northern Canada. And of course, Alaska is fully exposed. In a World War III scenario, Alaska would be a high variety target, unto itself, because of the McKinder Hypothesis which states that historic Russian military strategy is predicated on securing valuable sea ports, because the long Russian shoreline does not have any valuable sea ports to speak of.
In one fell swoop, Russia could launch the military equivalent of the TET offensive attacks (1968) in which the Viet Cong attacked every provincial capital on the same day during the TET cease fire arranged for a Vietnamese holiday. The Viet Cong could not sustain such a widespread front and the attack collapsed but not before American morale and citizen support for the war had eroded. However, the Russians do have the military depth to sustain such a military action.
When I look at a map of the North Pole, I see a chessboard. Not when, but if the Russians fully occupy the North Pole, their mere presence at the top of the world will result in a checkmate kind of move. The troops, supplies and equipment needed to prepare for an invasion from the North, would be troops, supplies and equipment not assigned to engage Ukraine, Syria, Iran, Taiwan and South Korea due to Russian and/or Chinese invasion.
Do the Facts On the Ground Support the Military Hypothesis?
Just since the beginning of 2015, Russia has begun to position its forces in key strategic positions. For example, in mid-January of 2015, the Russians began to move military assets to the Arctic region of the Finish border as they reopened an abandoned military base on the Kola Peninsula in the Russia city of Alakurtti, just 60 kilometers from the Finnish border. Checkmate Europe!
Russia Is In War Mode
The Russians are in war mode, Arctic war mode. I do not see how any reasonable person could read the following accounts of Russian military buildup in the Arctic and not conclude that the spark for WW III will not begin here.
Russia has tested the world’s most powerful vacuum bomb, which unleashes a destructive shockwave with the power of a nuclear blast, the military said on Tuesday, dubbing it the “father of all bombs”. This is the most powerful non-nuclear bomb on the world. In fact, many experts believe that this bomb does pack a nuclear punch. This would be the weapon of choice in the coming Arctic conflict because it would kill soldiers, dismantle military equipment without destroying the surrounding mineral resources, which is the point of the coming conflict.
Additionally, Russia is adding 40 new naval ships to its nuclear arsenal in 2014. By the end of 2015, Russia will have nearly as many naval ships as the United States. Retrofitted combat aircraft from Russia’s Northern Fleet will extend the ranges of their patrol flights over the Arctic in 2014 using a network of revamped Soviet-era airfields. In 2011, Russia deployed four brigades of combat troops into the Arctic.
Ballistic missile submarines make up one part of Russia’s strategic nuclear triad along with land-based ICBMs and the Russian bomber force. The Borey submarine is Russia’s first post-Soviet ballistic missile submarine class and will form the mainstay of the strategic submarine fleet, replacing aging Typhoon, Delta-3 and Delta-4 class boats. The creation of the Borey signals that the Russian economy is in war mode.
Russia ultimately expects to manufacture eight Borey-class submarines by the year 2020. People are constantly asking me for time frames connected to these events and I dismiss such questions as a fool’s errand. However, the deployment of these submarines by 2020 may provide a clue as to the timetable that the globalists are operating under. Oh yes, make no mistake about it, this coming war will not happen without the blessings of the banksters from Basel.
Additionally, the Russians are commissioning other submarines as well. Russia’s first Project 885M Yasen-class attack submarine, the Severodvinsk, was handed over to the navy at end of 2013. This submarine has been under construction since 1993.
Any Military Invasion Will Surely Include Alaska: The Treason Factor
Nowhere have I received more information than I have from Alaska regarding the presence of Russian soldiers, in uniform, on American soil. Further, the F-22 over-flights between Russia and Alaska have been suspended, thus leaving the coastline more vulnerable. The flights were ostensibly canceled because of oxygen uptake issues with the pilots of the F-22’s. These surveillance flights should have been replaced, at least temporarily with the F-16’s. They have been replaced by nothing. Also, according to naval sources, submarine patrols have been greatly reduced and many locals have been reporting seeing fully surfaced Russian subs off of the coast of Alaska in multiple locations.
Obama is not just a traitor for bringing in Russian troops to police Americans, his treason started much earlier. As I have previously reported, but the report went unheeded, Obama has given away seven strategic, oil-rich Alaskan islands to the Russians at a time when we could be going to war with Russia over Syria and Iran. At minimum, the oil, alone, from these Islands should be considered to be a military asset. I remain very concerned that these seven islands in the Arctic Ocean and Bering Sea could also be used as a military staging area from which to invade Alaska and defend its new claims of the mineral rich resources at the North Pole.
Russian troops began carrying out joint anti-terrorism drills in America in May of 2012. What terrorists could they be practicing for? The influx of Russian soldiers maybe began just as a trickle with a couple of dozen of Russians stationed at Fort Carson as we are witnessing the insertion of 5th column Russian troops on our soil. The extra-constitutional “agreements”(that means illegal agreements) were inked in Washington, D.C., at the fourth annual meeting of the illegally created “U.S.-Russia Bilateral Presidential Commission Working Group on Emergency Situations.”This extra-governmental organization, formed under the Obama administration, is one of almost two dozen similar “working groups” bringing together top U.S. and Russian officials. These two bodies are cooperating on everything from the drug war and agriculture to terror, science, “rule of law” (could that be code for martial law?), health, environment, energy, nuclear issues, education, culture, media, business, arms control, and more, according to the U.S. State Department. The Senate has not ratified any of the international deals, as required by the Constitution of the United States. And as such, this is an illegal agreement. However, this is not just an illegal agreement, IT CONSTITUTES TREASON AGAINST THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
However, with the FEMA bilateral agreement, it is clear the floodgates are ready to burst wide open and Obama’s treachery is fully exposed. The following is in response to the trolls to who constantly write to me and say there are no Russian troops on American soil. As if the above is not enough to convince one of the growing Russian presence which coincides with the Russian military buildup at the North Pole, perhaps, you would like to feast your eyes on the following:
Since I wrote the first account of this preparation of the Russians to occupy this country, nearly two years ago, my fear of a Russian attack and subsequent Russian occupation has been greatly heightened.
When Russia consolidates its Arctic holdings they will surely exploit their military advantage as described in the earlier paragraphs. Again, Putin has outmaneuvered Obama and it has all been by design.
