The Russian government and the City of Moscow have, this morning, published a map for citizens showing the location of . . . BOMB SHELTERS, shown above.
Who, in their right mind, would even try to bomb Moscow? Who even COULD bomb Moscow? Unless . . . the Russians KNOW they will be bombed because of what THEY are planning to do???? This is a staggeringly serious and very bad development. It hints at what may be coming for us all.
The situation in eastern Europe involving Ukraine is merely one aspect of the problem. For Russia, the actual root of the problem is the expansion of NATO itself, almost right up to Russia borders.
Russian President Vladimir Putin is, if nothing else, an excellent strategist. When he sees a problem, and realizes it needs to be solved, he goes to the root of the problem, and not it's periphery. If the root of the NATO problem is the United States and, to a lesser extent, the United Kingdom, then his going to the root of the problem could mean hitting us . . . first.
If he hits the US and UK first, NATO instantly falls apart. His European security problem is instantly resolved.
But he knows that if he does that, the US and UK can, and absolutely will, hit back. Which would mean the citizens of Moscow might need their bomb shelters.
(HT REMARK: I just had this conversation with my wife. I actually saw the chill run up her spine. Unlike last week, I think she is now more amenable to us evac'g to Pennsylvania, maybe today.)
Folks in or near major targets in the US/UK like major cities or, large military bases, should now think about and decide if it is safe to remain there. Things are suddenly looking very, very, dangerous right now.
