    Now just a few days ago, EMERCOM came forth and said this:

    Moscow prepared for possible nuclear attack - EMERCOM




    Representatives for the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry (EMERCOM) said that all bomb shelters and underground shelters in Moscow meant for the evacuation of people in case of a nuclear attack or other emergencies, "were prepared and will be able to accommodate the entire population of the capital."

    "As a result of the introduction of new approaches to civil defense, an inventory of underground facilities of the city was conducted. The Moscow underground facilities will be able to protect 100% of the population of the city," deputy head of EMERCOM of Russia in Moscow, Andrei Mishchenko said.

    He also added that the department takes urgent measures to enhance civil defense. The department updates the legal framework and modernizes control and alarm systems.

    "We work to improve the public training system in the field of civil defense," he said.

    Noteworthy, the Ministry for Communications, the Finance Ministry, the Ministry for Industry, the Russian State Reserve and the Bank of Russia earlier took part in a sudden inspection of the Russian army. The above-mentioned departments worked in a "war-time" mode to test their systems for a possible war.

    The Washington Free Beacon wrote citing US intelligence that Russia suddenly started building super bunkers. According to the publication, "dozens" of such bunkers are being built across the country.

    Experts point out that their creation is associated with the introduction of a prospective integrated automated command and control system of the fifth generation into Russian missile forces.

    To crown it all, according to services responsible for the organization of civil defense and emergency response, a special program was launched in Moscow in 2015 , within the scope of which bomb shelters and fallout shelters were built or renewed in every district of the Russian capital.

    Two years ago, Russia conducted drills to repulse a nuclear attack on Moscow and strike a massive retaliatory blow. Reportedly, President Putin used the "nuclear suitcase" during the drills.

    In 2015, both Russian and American generals said for the first time that a nuclear war between the United States and Russia was close like never before.

    "Despite the fact that the majority of Russians, including Muscovites, do not know where bomb shelters are located in their neighborhoods, there is a list of addresses of bomb shelters. The shelters are now maintained accordingly to give people an opportunity to go through several days of a man-made emergency or a nuclear attack," EMERCOM officials said.

    Have we decented officially in a new cold war? Are we expecting escalation over Syria / Ukraine? Russians are preparing non stop, day and night for war from what someone can read in the news. They are holding drills one after the other with some involving civilians and some involving people reading messages to NATO troops over loudspeakers like this one:

    NATO soldiers! You are being lied to! You are not peacekeepers! Lay down your arms,”.
    and

    Your treacherous attack is disturbing a peaceful country. You will suffer retribution and the anger of a people who have never suffered defeat in any war. Drop your weapons and stop being pawns for your leaders

    What do you all think? I personally believe (if that 40+ millions drill news is legit) that is not a good sign and people from all sides needs to sit down, have some raki - ouzo, over some bbq and chill the fuck out.

    No, because Russia has nothing resembling the strength left to pose a challenge to the United States alone let alone the entirety of the western bloc.

    There is no western block. A war between west and Russia will be the Anglo-axis (USA / UK, Canada maybe Australia) and Russia. Noone else will interfere.
    Also, Russia is capable of wipping USA out of the map if it ever comes down to that, - and the articles just paint the picture that they are preparing for that scenario.

    They say Hitler had enough money to wage war for six months, if he didn't win in six months time the war was lost. Russia doesn't have any money.

    And vice versa, conventional warfare invasions are a thing of the past when it comes to world powers outside of proxy territories; sure- either side could turn the other into glass but that's a lose-lose scenario with the nuclear retaliation measures in place on both sides.

    Russia is probably behind the recent SpaceX rocket explosion (a bullet through the stage would have done it). If they're engaging in open economic warfare via sabotage they probably think nuclear war is inevitable.

    The US should go on nuclear alert and make it clear we won't sit for a first strike.

    They have plenty of ICBMs and SLBMs.

    Most of which are woefully out of date and/or in poor repair; and no, their SLBM program might as well be defunct with the recent failures. Nor do they have sufficient money to maintain a nuclear program in the long term.

    Hillary Clinton expressed doubts about whether the United States should go forward with a trillion-dollar modernization of its nuclear forces at a fund-raiser in February, questioning an Obama administration plan that she has remained largely silent on in public.

    It's a good thing that Clinton will scrap Obama's 1 trillion nuclear program and give Russia the edge when it comes to first strike.

    You're aware that Clinton is much more of a hardliner when it comes to Russia than Obama ever was, right?

    She is a corrupt whore. Putin will throw her a few pennies from his 200 billion fortune and she will roll over like Lewinsky.

    Really doing nothing to dispel the stereotype that anti-Clinton folks are misogynists, mate.

    Considering there is actual reason to suspect Trump has received money from Russian sources, I'm not sure what your viable alternative is. Then again, I don't think you have one since you aren't remotely interested in best outcomes.

    You are completely clueless. Russia's arcenal is in 100 times better shape than USA's. They have modern missiles, you haven't build any new for several decades.

    You mean the 'modern missiles' which are about on par with technologies the US had available a decade and a half ago and -still- don't work properly?

    I think the problem is with Syria. If lets say Clinton is elected and tries to enforce a no fly zone as she has been bitching for the longest, you guys should be preparing for a hot war with the Russians.

    No i mean modern missiles with capabilties that USA doesn't even have on papers, like trajectory and speed changing mid flight so it doesn't get intercepted. You have nothing like that in your arsenal. Russia is far ahead on that subject and thus why the pentagon and Carter is bitching for modernization non stop, every day of the week.

    If by 'hot war' you mean 'Russia blinking', sure. Putin is many things, but he's not stupid enough to risk open war with the US for the sake of Syria. It'll be Yom Kippur all over again.

    No i mean modern missiles with capabilties that USA doesn't even have on papers, like trajectory and speed changing mid flight so it doesn't get intercepted.

    Correction; Russian media -says- it has missiles with these capabilities and claims the US doesn't have them. You're at least familiar with the concept of propaganda, yes?

    Realistically Russia doesn't have the economic wherewithal to sustain a prolonged contest with the US. It's arguable if it ever did in the first place.
