American physicist: It seems that the United States is preparing to fight and win a nuclear war

More and more reports about a hypothetical nuclear confrontation between Russia and the United States are appearing in the information space. Many experts express their opinion about what such a conflict could lead to.


American physicist from the University of Massachusetts Theodore Postol believes that the likelihood of a nuclear confrontation between the United States and Russia today is high as never before. According to him, the current situation is the "Cubic Caribbean Crisis".

At the same time, as the expert put it, the statements and actions of the current US authorities suggest that the US is preparing to wage and win a nuclear war. Postol stressed that the Pentagon is considering a scenario of a pre-emptive strike that would destroy Russian ground-based ICBM launchers.

At the same time, the American physicist noted that Russian President Vladimir Putin is well aware of Washington's intentions and regularly warns about the consequences of such a step. However, the United States ignores the statements of the Russian leader, considering them propaganda.

However, according to the expert, President Biden is also thinking about the consequences of a nuclear conflict. However, there is enormous political pressure on him. At the same time, according to the physicist, those who do not understand how a nuclear war will end are “putting pressure” on the owner of the White House.

Speaking of consequences. Postol said that more than a billion people would die in the first hours of a large-scale nuclear confrontation between the United States and Russia. At the same time, even more people will become victims of the consequences of this war.

In general, according to the expert, if this confrontation is not prevented, then humanity may cease to exist.

          Of course, they have children and grandchildren, at least take Soros, who has 5 or 6 children from different marriages and has had grandchildren for a long time.
          Apparently, they really expect to shove their children and grandchildren, before using nuclear weapons in the southern hemisphere, we will prepare a place for a "cache" there in advance and guessing for the desired wind rose.

          Our enemy is serious, prudent and with brains, so nothing can be ruled out even if someone thinks this is folly or idiocy.

            Quite right. Something has been actively being built in Liberia for a long time. Well, and something else where there is infa (maybe a fake?). The main question is how much and how the planet will suffer. After all, they need to remain in power after the war, and if there are few people left, it’s good for them, the tea will last longer. This means that the ring of fire will still be torn, otherwise China will remain. It is difficult to understand how the map of the earth will change and where it will be possible to escape, but maps of assumptions are periodically posted on the Internet. So seriously, someone is working. By the way, Siberia is sparsely populated, but there are a lot of resources.

          Rich misanthropes treat children like strangers... They hardly even see them. First, babysitters, then private schools and an expensive university. Feelings are HARMFUL! From a feeling person it is impossible to grow an inhuman Ruler or Master.

          This, by the way - with all the shortcomings - is a huge plus for the Russian authorities. Ours - still in the majority - grew up with mom and dad.

      What is the new predictor pepper? No one can seriously consider winning a nuclear war, in addition to land-based means, Russia has naval forces, mobile mobile systems and the so-called "doomsday" system. The answer will be guaranteed!!! Personally, I have another unanswered question, how the rest of the countries participating in the nuclear club, except for Russia and the United States, will behave if something happens, because the destruction will affect them too, no one will be able to sit it out.

    The word "nuclear" in the article is superfluous. Prepare to use weapons of mass destruction. It's true. Nobody will use nuclear weapons. It's pointless. And what it will be is the most mysterious question for today. All players have aces up their sleeves and everyone believes that he has a trump card. At least, based on the behavior of the 3 main players (USA, Britain and Russia), from the point of view of a psychologist, this is exactly the case.

      Taking into account their concept of lowering power and increasing the accuracy of y.z. I will assume that they are counting on a situation where, after the destruction of the authorized representatives of the VPR, the coordination of those responsible for the retaliatory strike will either be disrupted, or these responsible will not follow the order.

        They have one concept at the same time to hit about 6 "tomahawks" at the silos and control posts of the Russian Strategic Missile Forces, but there is one big BUT, Russia is huge and they cannot reach everywhere with their cruise missiles. Don't dare to start.

          Cruise missiles are not very suitable for a surprise strike. Their mass launch will be noticed anyway, and taking into account their flight time, the missiles will leave the mines a few hours before their arrival.

            Something I didn’t understand about what hours of flight of cruise missiles are you writing about? 10-15 minutes from Western Europe, 30-40 minutes ballistic missiles from America. Now the territory of the Urals and Siberia is beyond the reach of their conventional charges, but weapons are developing, hypersound is on the way, and a mass launch is a hope to break through air defense.

              A cruise missile flies at the speed of a passenger plane - 900 km / h. It won't reach the Urals in fifteen minutes. Yes, a medium-range missile will fly, but so far there are none in Europe. At least officially. And if there is, then certainly not in the amount of 6 thousand pieces.

          And what if they stir up a coup in the Kremlin and decide to take a risk under this commotion? There, the time for decision-making will go by minutes. And this will finally have to hit the decision-making centers. Until now, there have been difficulties with this even without the use of nuclear weapons. I think it inspires partners a lot to try and take risks.

          We have at least seen the Armata and the Su-57 in reality, at least at parades, if not at war. Much of what was promised and shown turned out to be fairy tales. I really want to believe that the Perimeter is not a fairy tale, and it works as it was once intended in a country that, unlike our current one, did not produce anything but galoshes. But with the help of the non-brothers, the partners arranged the NWO, and much that was in the pictures in the propaganda turned out to be a lie. And along the way, the partners and their intelligence calculated the degree of decay of control systems quite well. What do they know about the Perimeter? I think more than we are ordinary people. And the fact that they crawl closer and closer to the final throw somehow does not make it easier. I really hope that the Perimeter will work properly if it has to. Unlike our current government, it was created by people.

When determining by sensors (seismic, radiation, etc.) an impact on the country - waiting for #min. on the team, then the automatic launch of control missiles, which give the green light to the launch of special products from the triad, those that survived.

    American physicist: It seems that the United States is preparing to fight and win a nuclear war

    One gets the impression that American physicists are a branch of British scientists.
    A win-win option is possible with the organization of a new pandemic on the planet with a rapid lethal outcome with the available medicine for those closest to you.
    This has already been tested for Covid-19... The world hasn't figured out why there is a developed network of American biolaboratories on the planet... They are probably intended to implement the project.
    This whole adventure has one weak link - a missile attack on the centers and around when the artificial origin of the virus is detected. US and GB are first on this list.
    Russia should have a realistic response plan in a case suitable for the use of nuclear weapons:
    instant destruction of GB and a warning strike on one of the presumptuous NATO countries.
    When hitting Russia, it will be possible to chew snot for 30-40 minutes ... There is little hope for a layered air defense system, but how many times have we been told about the existing "analogues in the world", and there is communication in Ukraine ...

    The best option to avoid nuclear war is to start open tests. Plus, you need to increase the number of nuclear warheads, not only on submarines but also on ships. And you can also move nuclear repositories closer to Europe, right on the border of Finland and Norway, and warn that in the event of an offensive, all this will catch fire. Europe will then think ten times before climbing.

      They have more than twice the population of ours. And the warheads are about equal. If you are right and we can burn them to the ground, then they will then have a double overlap. Well, or we are only half of them if they can us once. It is very easy to come to such thoughts without even knowing the results of modeling such strikes. And this is if we simultaneously zhahnem. And if one side managed to suddenly strike the first blow, then the response will be weaker if it happens. And the question is where the missiles will launch through the already empty mines or somewhere else ... There will be no one and no time to retarget them.

        There are twice as many of them, which means that twice as many will die.
        Calculate the ratio of areas of territories and population density, population concentration. Here's another factor to increase their losses.
        Calculate air defense systems, their number and effectiveness. Another strishok to the calculations.

          For a long time, interesting calculations were satisfied, according to them, we somehow approximately equally do each other, at the level of 100+. In our vast territories, the population density is low, but in several dozen cities a lot of people are concentrated, sucked out of ruined villages and villages, in contrast to their one-story America. If those figures were incorrectly calculated and the situation would be better, I would only be happy, but at least there were calculations and arguments on which the figures were based.
          Yes, and I do not lose heart in any way, and the enemy will be defeated unambiguously. It's just that there are a lot of brats everywhere on the RFP, or simply sincerely believing those who are on the RFP. I don't count you among them, if that's the case.

    Sooner or later, the United States will have to decide how to "squeeze" states that have a mass of nuclear weapons. If someone here believes that America is satisfied with "nuclear parity" - this is a great naivete. America has always sculpted its security architecture on distant frontiers, and the prospect of something arriving on their territory has never suited them, for them it is a constant itch in the loins - no matter who owns something like that, they consider it an anomaly with which to find way to fight.

    For 20 years they have been promoting that tactical nuclear weapons are not scary. It is not surprising that a generation has grown up there that does not understand that even a strike by tactical nuclear weapons will automatically trigger a retaliatory strike by strategic nuclear forces.
    The saddest thing is that not only ordinary rednecks are unaware of this, but also their leadership, which has also degraded to zero

This will be the Atlantis of the 21st century! It will happen in this century! More precisely, I will not write - and few will believe this! Although I have already seen all this and I know what, how and when it will happen! The only thing is that 10% of the current population will remain from humanity. Russia will top the list of least affected states.

    Arkady Mamontov. Probably a pity for the legacy, and here he screwed about 17 years. Burnt guy. It seems that if you accidentally spit on yourself, but what's there - dropped a drop of your saliva, then you would burn yourself "through" wassat

    If we put aside our hats for throwing aside, let the brains that are packed in the same plane unfold the convolutions, at least a little, then the plan for a preventive nuclear strike by American strategists will not seem so naive and unreasonable for the possibility of their final victory over Russia:
    Pentagon strategists are conducting a detailed analysis of the state, location and capabilities of both the Russian strategic nuclear forces and the level of the top military and political leadership of the Russian Federation. What we have, offhand:

    1. The missile attack early warning system is generally designed to detect, for example, a mass launch of ballistic missiles from the United States, respectively, such a launch gives about twenty-five minutes to decide on a retaliatory strike. But what if the first echelon of missiles of a preventive global strike by the Americans is not ballistic, but cruise missiles, including hypersonic ones, in the first order of such missiles there can be about one and a half thousand pieces, they will start from all possible carriers: aviation, submarines, drones - will involved at least 700 F-22s, F-35s, the same number of B-1s, B-2s, as well as several dozen destroyers, submarines, ground launch pads already prepared along our European borders. In total, for each of our mines, for each mobile missile system moving at a speed of 10 km per hour along the same routes, long known and scanned by satellites, as well as for our nuclear missile carriers and Poseidon carriers moored at the piers, 3000- 4000 thousand cruise missiles loitering bombs with low-yield nuclear warheads?

    2. If we take into account the counteraction of air defense and missile defense, then from the first outfit of American missiles, in the best scenario, for example, two-thirds can be subtracted - say, three thousand missiles out of four launched will be destroyed. But ... The remaining thousand will be enough to destroy: all the boats at the piers, that is, 99% of the underwater composition of the missile carriers, all the mines, since five to seven direct hits on each may be enough for nothing to take off from the mine, all airfields based on our missile carriers, together with nuclear ammunition depots, as well as the main command and control posts.

    3. The Americans do not count on a victory "dry", but on the defeat of 90% of all our nuclear weapons already with the first strike, including the latest complexes and systems. The remaining missiles will take off, but what if, according to the Pentagon's calculations, half of the remaining ten percent - the American global missile defense system and continental air defense - are shot down (including in the initial stages of flight). Then it turns out that 5% percent of the Russian nuclear potential will reach the targets. Is it a lot or a little in terms of damage? A lot, but not enough for the damage to be fatal. This, most likely, is being calculated.

    4. And one more thing: the Americans have perfectly studied the system of our "maybe", mess and stupidity. They are sure that we will not be able to do anything in response to the maximum approach of rocket launchers to our borders, that we and our military-industrial complex will not create such a number in the near future their carriers of nuclear weapons directly threatening the States so that they should take care of this. In fact, the Pentagon really has a chance for a preemptive global missile strike with good results. We are closed and locked in a limited launch space, shackled by the military doctrine of "strike only in response", shackled by a bloody history in the Ukrainian theater of operations, crowded and en masse swim at the piers with our submarine fleet, liquidated our missile bases in Chukotka, we have no other sites and are not ready to thousands of waves of drones, which, by diverting air defense missiles, are able to pave the way for killer cruise missiles of strategic nuclear forces launch pads. We are not and are not preparing for war. We have cashbacks, curbs in Moscow, full peacetime regime, a weak military-industrial complex, a Ukrainian trap, and the locations of our strategic missiles are known to the centimeter. There is something to think about. You can put on hats (for slander) of the Pentagon's arguments, the entire list of which is not known to anyone.

      That's why it is necessary, now, to saturate the nuclear weapons units located on the territory of Russia, and wait until the warheads are delivered from the storage facilities (in 2 hours) ....

    The power of the Russian Federation gives hope to NATO that the Russian Federation will not be able to cause significant damage to the United States, hence all these impressions. Now, when a nuclear war could start at any second, it is necessary to re-equip the RF Armed Forces with ultra-high-yield nuclear warheads. For example, 200 megatons on Poseidon, two dozen such drones will stop any Wishlist.
