Build up to WW3 RUSSIA holds Largest WAR GAMES since COLD WAR Response to 'Simulated US Attack'

Build up to WW3 - RUSSIA holds Largest WAR GAMES since COLD WAR. Response to 'Simulated US Attack'




Straight out of Russian news, Vladimir Putin has called for the nation's strategic bombers to enter a state of 'full combat readiness' following the 'snap drills' that were initiated after Israel bombed Russian-made missiles within Syria.




Originally being revealed by an anonymous intelligence individuals within the US military and shared with CNN as reported by the Israeli National News, the revelation that Israel was behind the strike on the Russian-made missiles in Syria may be behind the reason for the combat drill — assuming the Russians found out before the general public. Unfortunately, the US mainstream media is too busy covering the minor intricacies of what George Zimmerman ate for breakfast today to discuss the potential brewing of mega conflict.




And when you throw Edward Snowden into this mix of tensions between world powers, it's additional fuel on the fire amid all of this diplomatic turmoil. And with the intelligence leak that it was Israel who blew up Russia's missiles after they deemed them to be a threat to the country, you have a real serious key going into the ignition of world war.




Whether or not escalations reach the point of conflict, and I certainly hope they do not (as Israel vs Russia is the absolute 'perfect storm' setup to launch the next world war and potential nuclear armageddon), the amassing of over 160,000 troops and strategic bombers with orders to achieve 'full combat readiness' is newsworthy. But apparently not to the mainstream media within the United States. A simple Google search at the time of writing for 'Russia 160,000 troops' will in fact bring up forums, social media posts, Russian websites, and small-time blogs.




The largest Russian military exercise since the cold war was a simulated response to a "hypothetical attack by Japanese and US forces,"




The wargames, which involved 130 combat aircraft, 70 ships, 5,000 tanks, 160,000 troops and 320 tons of equipment took place in Russia's Far East near the border with China. The drill was the result of a "snap order" given by Vladimir Putin on Friday which tasked the Russian military to achieve full "combat readiness" in a short time frame.




"The Sakhalin part of the maneuvers was intended to simulate a response to a hypothetical attack by Japanese and US forces," Konstantin Sivkov told BBC News.




The fact that the exercises targeted Japan is interesting given that Japan's Air Self-Defense Force was forced to scramble jets to track the movement of two Russian bear bombers that flew near Japanese airspace and over the disputed Kuril Islands on Monday.




Although Russia denied that the drills were also aimed at China, independent Moscow-based military analyst Alexander Khramchikhin said that "the land part of the exercise is directed at China, while the sea and island part of it is aimed at Japan."




Vladimir Putin, who personally witnessed the exercises, said he was proud of the outcome and that the drill displayed a "high degree" of combat readiness.




With the US and Russia on the verge of a proxy war in Syria following Israel's bombing of Russian weapons supplies earlier this month, tensions between the two superpowers are once again starting to simmer. America's support for jihadist rebels has angered Russia, which firmly backs the Assad government and has a huge geopolitical stake in preventing its collapse.

Russia is currently engaged in the largest military build-up since the cold war, including the development of a new missile defense radar in southern Russia designed to counter missiles launched from Europe, as part of maneuvers which pose, "a strategic threat to the United States and NATO allies," according to US military officials.




Russia is also working on a new generation of nuclear intercontinental ballistic missiles called the Yars-M which "Russian officials say will be able to penetrate U.S. missile defenses."
