Will There Be a Nuclear War?


Paul Craig Roberts wrote a startling thing a few years back:

Pay close attention to Steven Starr’s guest column, “The Lethality of Nuclear Weapons.” http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2014/05/30/lethality-nuclear-weapons/ Washington thinks nuclear war can be won and is planning for a first strike on Russia, and perhaps China, in order to prevent any challenge to Washington’s world hegemony.

The plan is far advanced, and the implementation of the plan is underway. As I have reported previously, US strategic doctrine was changed and the role of nuclear missiles was elevated from a retaliatory role to an offensive first strike role. US anti-ballistic missile (ABM) bases have been established in Poland on Russia’s frontier, and other bases are planned. When completed Russia will be ringed with US missile bases.

Anti-ballistic missiles, known as “star wars,” are weapons designed to intercept and destroy ICBMs. In Washington’s war doctrine, the US hits Russia with a first strike, and whatever retaliatory force Russia might have remaining is prevented from reaching the US by the shield of ABMs.

The reason Washington gave for the change in war doctrine is the possibility that terrorists might obtain a nuclear weapon with which to destroy an American city. This explanation is nonsensical. Terrorists are individuals or a group of individuals, not a country with a threatening military. To use nuclear weapons against terrorists would destroy far more than the terrorists and be pointless as a drone with a conventional missile would suffice.

The reason Washington gave for the ABM base in Poland is to protect Europe from Iranian ICBMs. Washington and every European government knows that Iran has no ICBMs and that Iran has not indicated any intent to attack Europe.

No government believes Washington’s reasons. Every government realizes that Washington’s reasons are feeble attempts to hide the fact that it is creating the capability on the ground to win a nuclear war.

 . . .


Various other sources show that he may be right in his assessment:

-The $1.2 trillion upgrade to [u.] S. nuclear weapons:


-The research of DARPA to ‘harden’ mankind against radiation:

This story is such an odd one, and so pregnant with implications, and was sent by so many people, that I have to blog about it. The problem is, I don't know where to start. So I'm including Zero Hedge's summary of the article as well, since it outlines some of the implications:



 . . .

But there was another way around the MADness, and it appears, with this press release, that DARPA has finally admitted to pursuing it, though I don't believe for a moment that it is just beginning the effort. Indeed, if one follows the procedures of the Kammlerstab, after which I believe DARPA was modeled, or the procedures of Nazi Germany in general, such authorizations or announcements do not begin the process, the merely herald or acknowledge a process long under way. The V-2 rockets, for example, which rained down on London in 1944 and 1945, were under development before the war even broke out, so when Hitler authorized the program in 1942 by decree, he merely was recognizing something already underway, and prioritizing its development as the "proof of concept" had already been amply demonstrated.

So what is that "other way" around the MADness? In typical military fashion, it's to "harden the target," i.e., humanity itself, by making it impervious to the effects of a general nuclear war, to make it impervious to what are now lethal doses of radiation. The utility for application to manned space travel is thus also apparent. Indeed, there is suggestive evidence both from Israel and from the former Soviet Union that those countries were engaged in similar research, and may have found ways to reverse the organic effects of radiation, if not to reverse radiation itself, so to speak. The goal? To ensure that humanity itself survives amid the radioactive rubble, howsoever that rubble may have come about: hydrogen bombs, or "rods of God."

Put the two approaches together, and an even bigger picture emerges, because such an "impervious humanity" could conceivably or potentially survive directed energy weapon attacks by particle beams and so on through the simple expedient of medical nano-bots repairing cells at the cellular level.

The implication? Wars are "fightable" and winnable again, and that means, in my opinion, that "they" are preparing for "something."

-Some story elements from the video game Fallout (1997), which takes place in a 22nd-century world that is living with the consequences of a 21st-century nuclear war (the u. S. Army ‘genetic research program’ sounds remarkably like Dr Farrell’s report about DARPA above):

Upon returning with the chip, the Vault is saved, but the Overseer is concerned about the Vault Dweller's reports of the Super Mutants. Believing the mutations are too widespread and extreme to be natural, and that they pose a threat to the Vault, the Overseer charges the Vault Dweller to find the source of the mutations and stop them. The Vault Dweller finds and joins the Brotherhood of Steel - remnants of a top-secret genetic research program involving the U.S. Army that survived the war, and continues to research advanced technology. The Brotherhood supplies the Vault Dweller with equipment and information on the Super Mutants, which so happen to be directly related to the genetic research they conducted before the war: a mutagen called the Forced Evolutionary Virus, which can be used to mutate humans into Super Mutants, but leaves all such mutants sterile as a side effect.  . . .


The Elite in Washington City really do appear to be some kind of evil cult.  One can a get a glimpse of their death and Satan worshipping ways in these clips of the underground congregation praising a nuclear bomb from Beneath the Planet of the Apes:



Most Holy Mother of God, save us!

E3 2018: Another Step Closer to ‘The Matrix’


And to cybernetic upgrades/transhumanism, etc., as illustrated in this report on the video game Cyberpunk 2077 by Emma Boyle:

I am still playing through The Witcher 3. It's a big game with a lot to do and unfortunately, living my life as well as playing other games has meant that it's taken me a while to get through it.

Long enough, in fact, that its developer CD Projekt Red has started showcasing its next game at E3 2018. After seeing it, not only do I think I'm going to have to give up my real life for a while to get through every aspect of it, I'm going to have to become a monogamous gamer. 

No flitting around between platforms and genres as my changing tastes dictate. It's Cyberpunk 2077, forsaking all others.

Given this huge and detailed world has absolutely no loading screens, I get the feeling I could spend time in it as easily as my own life.

That said, as easy as it would be to make Cyberpunk your life, whether you'll want to is another matter.

This is a dark game intended for a mature audience and as it turns out, Night City is a pretty grim place to live. CD Projekt called it “visceral” and that’s definitely one word for it. In the hour I spent with Cyberpunk 2077 there was swearing, full frontal nudity, serious violence and some body modification that made me say ‘eew.’ There are noodles in the game, though, so it's not all bad really. Oh, and print media still exists, which I think may have been the most optimistic thing I saw for the whole hour. 

Cyberpunk 2077 is a first-person RPG and shooter that allows you to create your own character called V. The character creation system looks extremely comprehensive and it seems like you’ll be able to truly craft the cyberpunk you always dreamed you would be. You can choose your gender, a life path, adjust your appearance, hair, tattoos and select from a range of skills and attributes.

This is a game world in which you can truly live - you get your own apartment and you can interact with pretty much everything in it, you can forge your own path taking on quests as and when you want and you can interact with people and pursue relationships. 

 . . . You can also mod weapons and, by using drugs, augment yourself.

 . . .

This is a game with branching narratives and your choices really seem to matter. Our group was told the mission we watched could have gone a variety of ways depending on a range of choices we made throughout it. That's a common sentiment at E3, but I'm optimistic that this game can pull it off. 

The thing that makes me most want to leave the meat space (a cyberpunk term for the 'real world') for Cyberpunk 2077 though, it's a huge open world game that's a closed single-player experience at a time when it feels like almost every large game is throwing us into always online space. 

It's kind of funny that a game that revolves around a world that's connecting to a network is letting you disconnect from one. Then again, going against the grain to do what works for you is the most cyberpunk thing of all.
