Russia Friend or Foe? - Part V

"For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh
upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape."
I Thessalonians 5:3

This article shows that Russia is not our friend but an enemy to the
United States of America and is planning a future attack on this nation.

3. America's Enemies, Russia's Friends
While the United States continues to fight the war on terrorism, Russia is
supplying many of these enemies with weapons of mass destruction. To prove
that Russia is supplying many of the enemies of the United States, I will
quote articles from news sources around the world.

a) The article titled "Russia Rips CIA Report On Technology" (Note 11) says

"Russia angrily denounced a CIA report that questions the Kremlin's
willingness and ability to prevent the spread of dangerous technology,
a sign of renewed tension following a sharp improvement in relations
in the wake of the Sept. 11 terror attacks......This is the first time
in recent years that an official American document makes an attempt to
question the devotion, willingness and ability of the Russian
government to prevent the leakage of sensitive products and technology
abroad, The Foreign Ministry said. Russia strictly meets its
international obligations to control the export of sensitive trade and
technology. CIA Director George Tenet told Congress on Wednesday that
Russia is one of the leading suppliers of nuclear technology and
missiles to countries hostile to the United States and remains the
first choice of nations seeking nuclear technology and
training.....President Vladimir Putin has lent strong support for the
U.S.-led campaign in Afghanistan, saying Russia long ago recognized
the worldwide threat of terrorism. But President Bush's denunciation
of Iraq, Iran and North Korea as part of an "axis of evil" that must
stop pursuing weapons of mass destruction or face consequences
presented a challenge to Russia, which has friendly ties with all
three."


b) An article titled "Russia, Iran Agree On Nuclear Reactor"(Note 12) states

"Russia brushed aside strong U.S. criticism on Wednesday and said it
had agreed with Tehran to speed up building of a $800 million nuclear
reactor in Iran and to consider constructing another. The United
States, which has branded Iran part of an 'axis of evil' for allegedly
developing weapons of mass destruction, fiercely opposes the Islamic
Republic's nuclear program."


3) This article titled "Iraq Buys GPS Scramblers From Russia" (Note 13).
It says

"Iraq has obtained global positioning satellite scrambling devices
that could play havoc with U.S. smart bombs, the Pentagon says,
according to a Fox News Channel report. According to the report, the
GPS scramblers - about the size of a clock radio - have been
positioned around the borders of Iraq in an effort to throw
satellite-guided bombs away from targets."

Russia Friend or Foe? - Part IV

"For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh
upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape."
I Thessalonians 5:3

This article shows that Russia is not our friend but an enemy to the
United States of America and is planning a future attack on this nation.

2. Treaty Signer, Treaty Breaker

In an article titled "NF Nuclear Treaty: US Pulls Out Of Cold War-Era Pact
With Russia" (Note 9) it states

"The US has formally withdrawn from a key nuclear treaty with Russia,
raising fears of a new arms race. The Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces
Treaty (INF) was signed by US President Ronald Reagan and Soviet leader
Mikhail Gorbachev in 1987. It banned missiles with ranges between 500 and
5,500 km (310-3,400 miles). But earlier this year the US and Nato accused
Russia of violating the pact by deploying a new type of cruise missile,
which Moscow has denied. The Americans said they had evidence that Russia
had deployed a number of 9M729 missiles - known to Nato as SSC-8. This
accusation was then put to Washington's Nato allies, which all backed the
US claim. 'Russia is solely responsible for the treaty's demise,'
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement on Friday. 'With the
full support of our Nato allies, the United States has determined Russia
to be in material breach of the treaty, and has subsequently suspended our
obligations under the treaty,' he added."

In another article titled "Large-Scale Russian Treaty Violations Revealed
On Eve Of New Talks" (Note 1 it states

"The Trump administration revealed on the eve of new arms talks with Russia
nine major arms control agreement compliance failures by Moscow. Special
U.S. arms control envoy Marshall Billingslea said the sole positive
finding in the forthcoming State Department annual report on arms
compliance is Moscow’s adherence to the terms of the 2010 New START.
However, Mr. Billingslea said extending the treaty, set to expire in
February, remains uncertain. 'This year’s arms control report documents
Russia’s abysmal track record in complying with its promises,' Mr.
Billingslea told The Washington Times. 'These aren’t trivial arms control
violations,' he said. 'These are invasions of countries, assassination
attempts and blowing up a 30-year-plus treaty through its violations.' . . . .
The report also addresses U.S. “concerns with Russia’s activities related to its
commitments under the Biological Weapons Convention,” a senior State
Department official said. Violations of the Vienna Document, part of the
Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, include Russian
stationing forces in Georgia’s Abkhazia and South Ossetia, the report
says. Moscow is violating the 1975 Helsinki Final Act by arming and training
anti-government forces fighting in Eastern Ukraine, the report notes.
The Conventional Forces in Europe agreement is being violated by Russia’s
stationing of military forces in Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine without
those nations’ consent."

We see from these articles that Russia is using deception by signing
treaties it doesn't intend to keep.

Russia Friend or Foe? - Part III

"For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh
upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape."
I Thessalonians 5:3

This article shows that Russia is not our friend but an enemy to the United
States of America and is planning a future attack on this nation.

2. Treaty Signer, Treaty Breaker

b) An article titled "Satellites Pinpoint Russia Nuclear Arms In Baltics"(Note 6) states

"U.S. spy satellites have located the exact position of Russian
tactical nuclear weapons in the Baltic enclave of Kaliningrad,
contradicting Moscow's contention that it had not transferred the
battlefield arms....The satellite photographs have refuted Russian
government denials about the transfer or deployment of nuclear arms in
Kaliningrad. The transfers were first reported by The Washington Times on
Jan. 3....Under an informal agreement reached between the United States and
Russia in 1992, Moscow was to remove all tactical nuclear weapons from
forward-deployed areas and said they had done so.....A Pentagon spokesman
told The Washington Times last month that the deployment of tactical
nuclear arms to Kaliningrad violates Moscow's pledge to keep the Baltic
region a 'nuclear-free'" zone."

c) On May 24, 2002 President Bush and Russian President Vladimir Putin
signed a treaty in Moscow. An article titled "A New Nuclear Treaty" is
subtitled "Allowing Weapons To Be Stored Could Leave Russian Arms
Vulnerable"(Note 3). The article states that this treaty "would limit
nuclear stockpiles in both nations to 1,700 to 2,200 warheads by 2012."
In another article titled "Russia Issues 'Regret,' Warning Over US Missile
Shield Plan"(Note 7), it states

"Russia expressed 'regret' Wednesday at US President George W. Bush's
decision to deploy a limited missile shield by 2004 and said the move could
lead to a new arms race while sidetracking the fight against terrorism.
'Such steps must not hurt Russia's security interests,' said Russian
Foreign Minister Igor Ivanov while on a visit to Tokyo, the Interfax news
agency reported....That new partnership was sealed at a May summit in
Moscow at which Bush and Putin vowed to slash the two sides' nuclear
arsenals by two thirds over a 10-year span......Igor Sergeyev, a former
defense minister who serves as Putin's advisor on strategic defense, argued
Wednesday that Washington has failed to assure Moscow that the shield was
aimed against nations like North Korea rather than Russia itself. We cannot
fail but notice that the shield is being unfurled not in the south -- where
the perceived danger from so-called rogue states is coming from -- but in
the north, the direction from which Russian missile could rain down on US
soil, said Sergeyev. Meanwhile lawmakers in Russia's State Duma lower house
of parliament -- which must still ratify the May disarmament treaty --
launched a move to amend the May disarmament to let Russia withdraw from
the pact under exceptional circumstances....Duma defense committee chairman
Andrei Nikolayev said he would propose that US or NATO military decisions
threatening Russia's national security, and serious Russian economic
difficulties, would allow Russia to abandon the pact and keep its nuclear
arms."

In another article titled"Pompeo: Russia Using Open Skies Treaty For Data
On Cruise Missile Targets" (Note 8) it states

“Russia is using intelligence obtained from U.S. and European
overflights under the Open Skies Treaty to plan future cruise
missile strikes on infrastructure targets, Secretary of State Mike
Pompeo revealed yesterday. ’Moscow appears to use Open Skies
imagery in support of an aggressive new Russian doctrine of
targeting critical infrastructure in the United States and Europe
with precision-guided conventional munitions,’ Mr. Pompeo said in
a statement supporting President Trump’s announcement to
withdraw from the 2002 treaty. ’Rather than using the Open Skies
Treaty as a mechanism for improving trust and confidence
through military transparency, Russia has, therefore, weaponized
the treaty by making it into a tool of intimidation and threat,’ he
noted.”

Russia Friend or Foe? - Part II

"For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh
upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape."
I Thessalonians 5:3

This article shows that Russia is not our friend but an enemy to the
United States of America and is planning a future attack on this nation.

1. Do We Ever Learn From History?
In another article titled "Button Gaffe Embarrasses Clinton"(Note 2), it
states
"Russian media have been poking fun at the US secretary of state over a
translation error on a gift she presented to her Russian counterpart.
Hillary Clinton gave Sergei Lavrov a mock "reset" button, symbolising US
hopes to mend frayed ties with Moscow. But he said the word the Americans
chose, "peregruzka", meant "overloaded" or "overcharged", rather than
"reset". Daily newspaper Kommersant declared on its front page: "Sergei
Lavrov and Hillary Clinton push the wrong button." Relations between
Washington and Moscow have cooled in recent years over Russia's role in
the war in Georgia, US support for the entry of Georgia and Ukraine to
Nato, and the planned US missile shield based in central Europe."

2. Treaty Signer, Treaty Breaker
Since 1968, the former Soviet Union or Russia has been trying to reduce
our nation's nuclear arsenals through treaties which they sign with no
intention to keep. An article titled "A New Nuclear Treaty", subtitled
"Allowing Weapons To Be Stored Could Leave Russian Arms Vulnerable"(Note
3) contains interesting information. In this article it shows the long
history of nuclear arms treaties signed from 1968 to the most recent
treaty signed on May 24, 2002. Let's look at three examples of how the
Soviet Union or Russia signs agreements with the United States and how the
United States follows through with the agreements but Russia never keeps
them.

1)The Start 2 treaty was signed by the first President Bush and Russian
President Boris Yeltsin in January 1993. The treaty said "to reduce
nuclear warheads to 3,000 to 3,500 each, was ratified by the Senate in
January 1996. The Russian Parliament ratified it in 2000. It has yet to go
into effect." An another article titled "Moscow Extends Life Of 144 Cold
War Ballistic Missiles"(Note 4) shows the results of this treaty. In the
article it states

"Russia has announced a radical plan to overhaul more than 100 of its most
powerful intercontinental nuclear missiles, which had been destined for
the scrap heap under the arms reduction treaties with the United States. A
total of 144 of the missiles, which weigh 200 tonnes and can each carry 10
warheads to the US from silos behind the Ural mountains, were due to be
dismantled by 2007 under the Start 2 weapons treaty signed by George Bush
Sr. and Boris Yeltsin nine years ago. But the commander in chief of
Russia's strategic nuclear forces, Colonel-General Nikolai Solovtsov, has
declared that the missiles - nicknamed Satan by the west during the cold
war - are to be refurbished and upgraded to keep them fully operational
until 2014.....The missiles are considered particularly effective, since
they send 50 warheads over their target area, 40 of which are decoys
designed to outwit sophisticated missile defense systems of the kind
planned by the Bush administration...... President Vladimir Putin replied
that the decision was a "mistake", but not a threat to Russia. Six months
later Russia pulled out of the Start 2 treaty, which compelled it to
destroy its Satan missiles."

Another article titled "Trident Sub Ohio To Trade Nukes For Conventional
Weaponry" (Note 5) shows that the US is still keeping it's end of the
bargain. In the article it states

"The USS Ohio, the oldest among the nation's fleet of hulking, black
Trident submarines, is trading in its nuclear arsenal....The 560-foot
Ohio, commissioned during the Cold War in 1981, is one of the four
Tridents the Navy is outfitting with conventional weapons under the START
II pact. The treaty requires the Russian and American navies each to cut
back to 14 ballistic missile subs by the end of the year."

Russia Friend or Foe? - Part I

"For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh
upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape."
I Thessalonians 5:3

This article shows that Russia is not our friend but an enemy to the
United States of America and is planning a future attack on this nation.

1. Do We Ever Learn From History?
Many have forgotten the history of Afghanistan. The Soviet Union was
friends with the Afghan people and used this deception of friendship to
invade their country. The United States is repeating the mistakes that
Afghanistan made. This will lead to Russia invading our country. A
newspaper article titled "U.S. Doubts Russia Will Be a Future Threat"
(Note 1) states

"Secretary of State Colin Powell said Tuesday the world was safer now
that Moscow and the West had joined hands ending decades of enmity.
The experience of the last 10 years is that, slowly but surely, Russia
has come to the realization that its future lies to the West and the
West is coming to the realization that its future lies with Russia,
Powell said....... Powell said Moscow had found it essential to join
its former adversaries, ending an era of potential Russian threat to
the West. I don't think we're going to see a rerun of this movie,
Powell said."

In I Thessalonians 5:3 it says "For when they shall say, Peace and safety;
then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with
child; and they shall not escape."
