On July 21, 2008, Russian newspaper, The Izvestiya, reported that Russian bombers TU-160, aka "white swan", and TU-95, aka "bear", would be enroute to Cuba. Russia has been mobilizing its air force since the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan in 2001. Now they are bringing the reality war to our side of the planet.
This action is a direct response to an agreement between the United States, Poland, and the Czech Republic to set up a missile shield in the European countries. Russia considers this a serious threat to their national security and are not taking the matter lightly. The Russian government has announced that it plans to aim its nuclear missiles at the proposed sites.
As our plans for complete domination of the Middle East progresses, it was only a matter of time before Russia and China became involved. The invasion of Iran would give the U.S. military a direct route into Russia via the Caspian Sea. We've been knocking on the door of these gentile Giants for seven years now. Well, Russia has answered the door. They've asked to see our warrant. As usual, we do not have one.
So far, we've seen the United States' ability to take on small countries with antiquated armies and imaginary nuclear weapons. We have been very successful in these campaigns. Now we can see how we deal with a real threat, on our own turf.
The TU-160 "White Swan" is a supersonic nuclear bomber. It is capable of carrying a payload of 10 Tsar Bombs or 500 megatons of explosive power (100 times the explosive power of ALL the bombs dropped during World War II, including the two nuclear bombs dropped on the Japanese ). The TU-160 got its name for its white color and its incredible speed (over mach 2) and handling. If it were to leave from Cuba, it could be over Florida in less then 4 minutes and it could reach the white house in 45 minutes. Considering that during the September 11th attacks it took our fighter jets over four hours to respond, this would be more than enough time for the Russians to make a devastating attack.
Comrade Raul Castro of Cuba refused to either deny or confirm involvement in the Russian military plans. Former Cuban leader Fidel Castro released a political Essay "Machiavelli's Strategy". He said that with the United States: "If you say yes, I'll kill you. If you say no, it doesn't matter, I'll kill you anyway. That is the Machiavellian strategy the United States uses... We need not offer any explanations or excuses nor ask forgiveness... What we need are nerves of steel in times of genocide, and Cuba has them. The United States knows that."
In 1962, the U.S. faced a similar situation that is known today as the "Cuban missile crisis". It is said in countless history books that this was the closest the world ever came to an all out nuclear war. It is also said that it was John F Kennedy's grace, tact, and desire for peaceful negotiation that avoided it. Unfortunately for us, "grace, tact, and desire for peaceful negotiation" has never been used to describe this administration.
The Seattle times reported on July 25th that Bush insists that the shield system, a radar site in the Czech Republic linked to interceptor missiles in Poland, is intended for defense against Iran, not Russia.
If you go to Google maps, you see clearly that Poland and the Czech Republic are nowhere near Iran, and are parked right next to Russia. Let us not forget, Poland and Czechoslovakia were part of the soviet Union's Eastern Bloc during the cold war. That is how close we are talking.
U.S. President Bush and Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin so far have agreed that they can take some of their time at the Olympic Games' opening ceremonies in Beijing to discuss the matter.
It is an interesting image. The leader of the U.S. and the leader of Russia, sitting side by side, nonchalantly discussing the possible deaths of million of their people by nuclear holocaust as they watch the Olympic torch ignited in a symbol of peace.
