Russia reality check:

Nuclear First Strike 

"Many countries shall be embroiled in wars, until we have the greatest war ever seen, nor shall ever be seen again, the Third World War, which shall engulf the nations. And many nations shall disappear from the force of the armaments being gathered now throughout Russia." 
- Our Lady, August 21, 1985

"Then I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a flying roll. And he said unto me, 'What seest thou?' And I answered, 'I see a flying roll; the length thereof is twenty cubits, and the breadth thereof ten cubits.'"
    "Then he said to me, 'This is the curse that goeth over the face of the whole earth: for everyone that stealeth shall be cut off on this side according to it: and everyone that sweareth shall be cut off on that side according to it.
     "'I will bring it forth, saith the Lord of hosts, and it shall enter into the house of the thief, and into the house of him that sweareth falsely by My name: and it shall remain in the midst of his house and consume it with the timber thereof and the stones thereof.'"

Many Americans are of the opinion that Russia is no longer a threat to the United States, and that Russia has renounced its misguided goal of world domination. But such an opinion is completely contradicted by the monumental growth of Russia’s and China’s military and nuclear arsenals. J.R. Nyquist, an expert on the Russian military, affirms: “Despite recent claims that Russia has relinquished its status as a superpower, the military minds behind Moscow’s war machine clearly remain fixated on fighting a future war against America.” Furthermore, according to a high ranking Russian defector: 

Stanislav Lunev—the highest-ranking GRU (Russian military intelligence) officer ever to defect from Russia—also warns that Russia is preparing for war against the United States. Lunev's book Through the Eyes of the Enemy (published last summer by Regnery) states categorically that the Cold War is not over and that Russia continues to plan for a nuclear war. "Russia remains terrified of the power of America, and Russian military intelligence does everything it can prepare for a war that it considers inevitable," he wrote. This war, Lunev details, would employ nuclear, biological and chemical weapons against America. (Russia and China Prepare for War -- Part 4: Russia May Launch a Surprise Attack Against US (Christopher Ruddy)  

Colonel Lunev testified before Congress at the beginning of 2000:

Stanislav Lunev, the highest-ranking Soviet spy ever to defect, warned members of Congress Monday a pre-emptive nuclear strike by Russia on American soil is a real possibility. At a House Committee on Government Reform hearing here, the one-time colonel in Soviet and then Russian Federation military intelligence, gave a chilling presentation of his country’s Cold War plans to defeat the United States. (Ex-spy Fears Sneak Russian Attack,, January 25, 2000)

We must pay close attention to statements made by Russia’s leader as well:

Russia's new leader has sent a blunt threat to the United States that the Kremlin will not hesitate to be the first to use nuclear weapons. The new security doctrine announced over the weekend by Acting President Vladimir V. Putin replaces one from 1997 that Russia would not use nuclear weapons unless its national sovereignty were threatened. (Putin Warns Russia Will Strike First, January 17, 2000) 

The Soviet journal “Voyennaya mysl”
The Russian acronym for surprise nuclear attack is VRYAN. It comes from the Russian words, "vnezapnoye raketno-yadernoye napadenie." In a typically well-sourced article, J.R. Nyquist points out that Russian military doctrine has always stressed the need for striking first: 

According to [Peter Vincent] Pry, "Soviet military textbooks written in the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s generally endorsed the view that nuclear war could be won and that victory was likely to go to the side that struck first." (Surprise Nuclear Attack, Part 1, J.R. Nyquist) 

A very informative Soviet military journal is discussed in the booklet, Soviet Strategy for Nuclear War, by Joseph D. Douglass, Jr. and Amoretta M. Hoeber: 

“Special attention was also directed to the Soviet journal Voyennaya mysl. This journal is the official military-theoretical organ of the Soviet Ministry of Defense and is also regarded as the official organ of the Soviet General Staff. It is a restricted or classified journal, written for senior officers of the Soviet armed forces, and is not usually available to Western analysts. [It was information from selected top secret issues of this journal that are referred to as the Special Collection on the New Soviet Military Doctrine that was passed to the West by Colonel Oleg V. Penkovskiy in the early sixties prior to his arrest by Soviet KGB agents in October, 1962].” [i] 

Within the journal Voyennaya mysl we discover a clear and appalling Russian war strategy.  

Winnable nuclear war?
One of the many pitfalls of the West is its inability to understand the communist mind. The thought of a “winnable nuclear war” is alien to the thought of most Westerners, but not to military minds in Russia: 

“Although such a war would clearly involve enormous destruction, in the Soviet view it would not be the end of the world. Nations could recover, especially the Soviet Union. Moreover, despite the unprecedented destruction, the war is viewed as winnable. Preparing to fight and win this war is the most important task of Soviet military strategy.” [ii] 

This subject is covered in many Russian publications: 

“In contrast to much of Western military literature, the Soviet literature is seriously directed to the problems of fighting and winning a nuclear war. Moreover, we discovered no evidence of the existence of opposing schools of thought as are found in the West. The Soviet literature is extremely consistent; different categories of sources (e.g., journals and textbooks) agree and, except for occasional, gradual developments in basic themes, are consistent over time. This consistency prompted us to reconstruct the basic themes of Soviet thought on world nuclear war.” [iii] 

In fact, waging and winning a nuclear war has been considered the main task of the Soviet military:  

“The Soviet government… and their armed forces must be ready primarily for a world war…. The Armed Forces of the Soviet Union and the other socialist countries must be prepared above all to wage war under conditions of the mass use of nuclear weapons by both belligerent parties…. The preparation and waging of just such a war must be regarded as the main task of the theory of military strategy and strategic leadership.” [iv] 

In preparation for this horrendous day, the Russian military has expended great efforts to bring about circumstances “favorable” to a nuclear first strike victory: 

“A major portion of Soviet military strategy is geared to understanding the favorable circumstances under which nuclear war can be won by the Soviet Union and to effecting these circumstances. This is the principal subject of the Soviet text, The People, the Army, the Commander. Although the title suggests an ideological treatise on the unity of the Soviet people and their leadership, the book is in fact an examination of global nuclear war and the political, economic, moral, administrative, and leadership factors that, according to the author, would bring victory in such a war.” [v] 

Obviously, a weakened opponent (U.S.) is a key “favorable” condition for winning such a war. United States air and ground strength have shrunk by two-thirds since 1985, and the scraping of the U.S. military during the eight-year reign of Clinton has greatly widened U.S.-Russian military parity. Such conditions are exactly what Russia has wished for: 

“… the Soviets place great importance on seizing the initiative and striking first, with surprise if at all possible. The main objectives of such a strike would be to destroy the capability of the United States to organize a strong counterstrike; to achieve a preponderance of residual nuclear power; and, if that does not end the war, to intensify the effort to destroy the total military-economic potential of the United States. And, essential to this process is the need to get the United States to forego any military buildup that would deny the Soviets the possibility of achieving this relative capability—hence, the importance of selling to the West an image of the Soviet Union that encourages U.S. inaction.” [vi] 

Russian war games
To assert that Russia actually intends to initiate a nuclear war with the United States is horrendous, and would be unbelievable unless there was concrete evidence (as well as the words of Our Lady of the Roses) to verify this terrible war strategy. We need to pay close attention to Russia’s actions (not their words!) which betray their actual intent:

Today, Russia may be conducting nuclear deception on a far vaster scale beneath Yamantau Mountain, where it has dug out a gigantic underground military complex designed to withstand a sustained nuclear assault. U.S. intelligence sources tell WorldNetDaily that the Yamantau complex is but one of some 200 secret deep underground nuclear war-fighting sites in Russia, many of which have been significantly upgraded over the past six years at a cost of billions of dollars. Since the end of the Cold War in 1991, U.S. intelligence sources believe the Russian government has pumped more than $6 billion into Yamantau alone, to construct a sprawling underground complex that spans an area as large as Washington, D.C., inside the Beltway—some 400 square miles…. The work at the Yamantau complex is only part of Russia's current efforts to modernize and reinforce some 200 deep underground command posts, nuclear warhead repositories and clandestine missile sites. Some CIA and Joint Chiefs of Staff analysts believe these assets will give Russia a strategic advantage over the U.S. in the event of nuclear war.  (Can Moscow Be Trusted: Inside Russia's Magic Mountain - Part II,  WorldNet Daily)

To expend such monumental resources for a facility that has but one purpose, waging a nuclear war, is clear evidence that the war strategy outlined in the journal Voyennaya mysl is for real.  We must also note that Russian war games conducted over the last few years have been unprecedented in magnitude:

·      February 21, 1997—Prime Minister Victor Chernomyrdin “was at the [Russian] Odinstovo nuclear command center, overseeing an exercise whose assignment was ‘to destroy the U.S. in less than an hour.’” 

·      September 1997—Three day exercise, included test firing ICBMs, submarine-launched missiles, and bomber-launched cruise missiles. 

·      April 1998—Russia’s strategic bomber forces carried out simulated nuclear bombing raids against the United States in an exercise that included test firings of long-range cruise missiles. 

·      October 1998—Russia’s strategic rocket forces practiced a mock nuclear attack, firing an ICBM at the U.S., coordinated with the Russian strategic bomber force. 

·      June 21, 1999Russia began gigantic war exercises last Monday [June 21]. Troops from three military districts and the powerful Northern Fleet, together with Russia's Air Defense Forces, maneuvered to evade imaginary Western air and missile strikes. Then on Saturday, Russia's forces turned to launch a mock counter strike. In recent months, preparing for a future nuclear war has been a top priority with the Russian General Staff, which believes such a war is not only possible, but inevitable. Books and articles spelling out the techniques of thermonuclear world war continue to be regarded as classics in Russia's war colleges. The theory and practice of nuclear war did not die with the Soviet Union. Demonstrating this emphasis on nuclear war, an unprecedented number of Russian war games have taken place in the last year and a half. The frequency and size of these war games dramatically increased after NATO began bombing Serbia on March 24. As the crisis over Kosovo heated up, not only did Russia's leaders make veiled threats about the possibility of nuclear war, but Russian soldiers, sailors, and airmen were being trained to fight and win such a war. Some in the West would argue that Russia's training methods are a bluff. But there is a good reason to think otherwise. (Russia's nuclear war-games , Monday, June 28, 1999 by J.R. Nyquist) 

·      August 16, 2000Russia and Belarus recently held massive war games meant to "make NATO strategists think twice about the dangerous consequences" of moving eastward. Moscow characterized the exercises, called "Combat Unity 2000," as unprecedented in their magnitude, taking place "for the first time ever ... on such a scale."… Ukraine, which participated in NATO exercises in June, will join Russia, Belarus and eight other CIS members in another set of military exercises at the end of this month.  (Russia holding big war games , Wednesday, August 16, 2000 by I. J. Toby Westerman) 


"O My children of the United States, do you not understand what is ahead for you? Your country, the United States, has not known what it is to suffer through destructive forces. My children, you shall not escape the destruction that the Bear of communism has set upon many countries in Europe and the world. You cannot compromise your Faith to save what there is left, for everything upon earth shall fall as rubble with the Chastisement. A ball of fire, a chastisement, a baptism of fire, is heading for mankind. Can you not understand?" 
- Our Lady, November 20, 1978

Our Lady - "You ask Me, My child, why My tears are flowing?  Come with Me and look!"
- Oh, my goodness! I... I see... I... I never saw so many dead people.  Man against man, nation against nation.
Our Lady - "No flesh shall be spared."
Veronica - Oh, I see a great, horrible war.  I see... It looks like a mushroom.  A tremendous explosion and everything is gone! Oh! 
Our Lady - "Satan, My child, shall have his hand upon the button." (February 1, 1975)
