The Order of Things to Come
King of the Hill
If enemy camp is on high ground, do not climb to launch attack.
Whoever controls this region, will ultimately control the world’s economy. This map also demonstrates, from a military perspective why Russia is obsessed with occupying the North Pole,
Under the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, which was finalized in 1982, countries can lay claim to the ocean floor well beyond their borders so long as they can provide convincing scientific evidence to prove that a particular seabed is an extension of their continental shelf. Already, countries have sovereign rights to resources within 200 nautical miles of their territorial waterways. For a country to determine whether they have economic sovereignty beyond that distance, the UN agreement requires comprehensive mapping that establishes some sort of geologic justification for the claim. And where the Arctic is concerned, Canada, the US, Norway, Russia, and Denmark have been amassing scientific evidence for more than a decade in an effort to increase their piece of this resource-rich pie.
The Recent History
Russian Motivation for Militarily Occupying the North Pole
Important Interview with Sweden’s Agneta NordbergAgneta Nordberg is the Vice Chair of the Swedish Peace Council, a member of the Steering Committee in The International Peace Bureau (IPB) and she is highly concerned that Sweden is being used by the United States and its NATO allies to conduct their war games on Swedish soil. Sweden is a supposed neutral country and has signed agreements in opposition to exactly what is going on which are secret war games on its soil. And if it were not for a Norwegian military plane crash into MountKebnekaise, the world would never have discovered these secret war games taking place in northern Sweden and Norway. Nordberg stated that the reason for the war games is because of the melting ice which has exposed the vast amounts of mineral resources, the largest in the world. It is not an overstatement to proclaim that whoever controls the Arctic, will someday control the world’s economy. However, the primary and immediate importance of controlling the North Pole is for military reasons.
The Military Significance of Occupying the North Pole
On any given morning, the Russians could attack into the territories of the Scandinavian countries, thus threatening Europe. Putin has recently and repetitively threatened Finland and Sweden. Norway has attempted to beef up its weak military and at the end of the day, it will not matter.
The nations of Eastern Europe (e.g. Hungary, Poland), are already living under fear of invasion from the East. Now, they would potentially be caught in a vice from the North. This would make NATO’s defense of Eastern Europe virtually indefensible.
Simultaneously, Russia could sweep down from the North Pole and attack through Northern Canada. And of course, Alaska is fully exposed. In a World War III scenario, Alaska would be a high variety target, unto itself, because of the McKinder Hypothesis which states that historic Russian military strategy is predicated on securing valuable sea ports, because the long Russian shoreline does not have any valuable sea ports to speak of. In a parallel action, the Russians could also attack out of the North Pole and will meet with weak resistance as Russian forces would have no trouble entering the lower 48 through our northern border. Tomorrow’s Part III, will cover the invasion of the Southwest and the Southeast. This will be the Russian version of shock and awe.
In one fell swoop, Russia could launch the military equivalent of the TET offensive attacks (1968) in which the Viet Cong attacked every provincial capital on the same day during the TET cease fire arranged for a Vietnamese holiday. The Viet Cong could not sustain such a widespread front and the attack collapsed but not before American morale and citizen support for the war had eroded. However, the Russians do have the military depth to sustain such a military action.
When I look at a map of the North Pole, I see a chessboard. Not when, but if the Russians fully occupy the North Pole, their mere presence at the top of the world will result in a checkmate kind of move. The troops, supplies and equipment needed to prepare for an invasion from the North, would be troops, supplies and equipment not assigned to engage Ukraine, Syria, Iran, Taiwan and South Korea due to Russian and/or Chinese invasion.
Judge By Their Actions, Not By Their Words
The Russians are in war mode, Arctic war mode. I do not see how any reasonable person could read the following accounts of Russian military buildup in the Arctic and not conclude that the spark for World War III will not begin here.
Russia added 40 new naval ships to its nuclear arsenal in 2014. By the end of 2015, Russia will have nearly as many naval ships as the United States.
Retrofitted combat aircraft from Russia’s Northern Fleet will extend the ranges of their patrol flights over the Arctic in 2014 using a network of revamped Soviet-era airfields.
The Russian fleet’s Tu-142 and Il-38 reconnaissance and anti-submarine warfare aircraft carried out over 30 patrol missions in the Arctic last year. The Russians have announced their intentions to carry out many more such missions.
The Russians are increasing the size of their nuclear submarine fleet at the same time we are reducing. Why?
Ballistic missile submarines make up one part of Russia’s strategic nuclear triad along with land-based ICBMs and the Russian bomber force. The Borey submarine is Russia’s first post-Soviet ballistic missile submarine class and will form the mainstay of the strategic submarine fleet, replacing aging Typhoon, Delta-3 and Delta-4 class boats. The creation of the Borey signals that the Russian economy is in war mode.
Russia ultimately expects to manufacture eight Borey-class submarines by the year 2015. People constantly are asking me for time frames connected to these events and I dismiss such questions as a fool’s errand. However, the near-future deployment of these submarines may provide a clue as to the timetable that the globalists are operating under. Oh yes, make no mistake about it, this coming war will not happen without the blessings of the controllers of all central banks, Basel.
Additionally, the Russians are commissioning other submarines as well. Russia’s first Project 885M Yasen-class attack submarine, the Severodvinsk, was handed over to the navy at end of 2013. This submarine has been under construction since 1993. This fact goes a long way to justify the claims made by several Russian defectors (e.g. Lunev) that the Soviet Union never really fell and always planned to attack the United States at some future date.
