The United States has transferred an E-6B "Looking Glass" nuclear war command and control aircraft to Europe. In response, Russian Armed forces were issued a "nuclear clash warning" (The U.S. equivalent of DEFCON-2) by the Ministry of Defense.
The transfer of the American "doomsday plane" to Europe is allegedly a "signal" to Russian President Vladimir Putin. On Tuesday, the U.S. European Command moved the E-6B Mercury, also known as the "Doomsday Aircraft," to Iceland. It refueled and continued on to Europe.
It is an airborne command post designed to control armed forces in a nuclear war.
The current version of the aircraft entered service in 1998 and is capable of communicating directly with submarines equipped with ballistic missiles. In addition, the Mercury can also remotely control Minuteman intercontinental ballistic missiles. "After Russia suspended its participation in the New START agreement, the redeployment of the E-6B Mercury to Iceland can be seen as a measure of clear anti-Kremlin positioning" said sources in the US Defense Department.
TERROR ATTACK INSIDE RUSSIA
Earlier this week, somewhere between 40 and 50 Ukrainians launched an attack inside Bryansk Russia. They fired at cars, a school bus with children, and burned several houses.
They were engaged by Russian Border Guards and the Russian federal security service (FSB) which repelled them back into Ukraine, where the Russian Army finished them all off with a "massive" artillery barrage.
Later, vehicles around Bryansk struck land mines planted by the attackers.
As a result of the attack, at least one school bus driver and one child were reported killed.
Investigators found some of the weaponry used by the attackers and disclosed . . . they were NATO weapons.
This information lead to a stark session of Russia's lower house of Parliament, which they call the "Duma." It is the legislative equivalent to the US House of Representatives.
During the debate, it came out that the weaponry used by the attackers was NATO weaponry. One member of the Duma said "This raises a lot of questions about NATO's participation." Another member of the Duma replied "It doesn't raise questions, it raises ANSWERS."
Between the attack in Bryansk, and now the deployment of a US "Doomsday Plane" Russia issued a "Nuclear Clash Warning" to its military. This is the U.S. equivalent of DEFCON-2.
For those unaware, the DEFCON level is an indicator of how close we are to nuclear war. It has a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being everything is normal, have a nice day. One is "nuclear war."
The Russians are now at the equivalent of 2. Just one step away from actual nuclear conflict.
Earlier this week, reports started coming in indicating US Senators and perhaps other American Officials, are leaving to "The Hotel" tomorrow (Sunday, March 5). That phrase, "The Hotel" is a reference to the underground nuclear bunkers built decades ago for US officials to survive a nuclear war. (Story HERE)
Given the possible relocation of US Officials to nuclear bunkers, and the deployment of a US E-6B "Doomsday Plane" to Europe, this coming week seems primed for the worst week in human history.
Make certain you have "preps" of emergency food, water, medicine, communications gear, flashlights, a generator with fuel to run it, and so forth.
