Prevent Nuclear War!
USA – Stop Threatening Russia
& the World!
In 1962, when the Soviet Union placed missiles in Cuba, 90 miles from U.S. shores, and the U.S. had missiles on Russia’s border in Turkey, events nearly escalated to a nuclear war. Today, the U.S. and NATO’s 27 member nations have moved troops and missiles to Russia’s door step resulting in escalating tensions that again, by accident or design, could result in a nuclear war.
The movement of U.S. and NATO troops and missiles on or near Russia’s borders goes directly against the promise made in 1991 by then president George H.W. Bush to Mikkhail Gorachev of the USSR that the U.S. and NATO would not move one inch closer to Russia. That U.S. and NATO promise has been broken and dangerous tensions escalate.
The U.S. ABM missile systems being deployed in Eastern Europe is part of the U.S. nuclear war first -strike policy defined in the 1980s as the “Victory is Possible” crazy doctrine supported by Obama’s now secretary of defense, Ashton Carter. Today, there is a new U.S. cold war campaign to vilify the Russians that includes damaging economic sanctions, provocative military actions, and even plans by neocons for regime change in Russia, following the neocon $5 billion coup and regime change in the Ukraine. See http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article44660.htm and https://www.popularresistance.org/americas-biggest-of-all-big-lies-were-not-threatening-russia/
Charges of Russian expansionism are bogus. In an article by Conn Hallinan, entitled “Bear Baiting Russia” he states that “Russia has two bases in the Middle East and a handful in Central Asia. The U.S. has 662 bases around the world and Special Forces (SOF) deployed in between 70 and 90 countries at any moment. Last year SOFs were active in 147 countries. The U.S. is actively engaged in five wars and is considering a sixth in Libya. Russian military spending will fall next year, and the U.S. will out-spend Moscow by a factor of 10. Who in this comparison looks threatening?” https://www.popularresistance.org/natos-dangerous-game-bear-baiting-russia/
The U.S. Military-Industrial Complex (MIC) yields great profits from new Cold War threats and escalating military budgets for weapon systems. The $1.5 trillion new F-35 bombers are for the Russkies, not terrorists. “Scare the hell out of people.” That’s the game for weapon makers. Since March 2015 there have been over 60 incidents that could have triggered a major crisis between Russia and the United States. Let’s put a stop to this escalating tension. Speak out for peace now! A nuclear war threatens the entire planet!
