Russian Motivations for Attacking the United States

russia attacks america 2The Common Sense Show – by Dave Hodges

As reported on KTAR FM radio, Phoenix, AZ., on January 17, 2014, the cyber attacks upon Target Inc., have Russian mafia fingerprints on the identity theft of over one hundred million Americans. If one knows their Russian history, we know that since the pretend collapse of the “former” Soviet Union, the KGB changed uniforms and ran the Russian mafia which also happens to be the origin source of Putin. The notorious Russian mafia, the Russian KGB, there is no difference. For that matter, the notorious drug running America mafia, the CIA (e.g. Air America, Iran-Contra, creation of the LA cocaine street, cocaine- dealing gangs), there is no difference. The CIA and the KGB do not work exclusively for their host nations. These two rogue organizations do the heavy lifting for the banksters who seek to subjugate humanity and impose a dramatic depopulation agenda. For Bible-believing Christians, I am sure that you will take note of how this is foretold in scripture. I will let all of you fill in the details on the Comment Board connected to this article.

The Last Great American Garage Sale

Both country’s mafia/intelligence operations have acted as currency destabilization forces as well (see Confessions of An Economic Hit Man). Further, my sources tell me that the story about how these two intelligence operations employed economic sabotage agents to facilitate the promotion of the derivatives market which led to the collapse of the European and American financial markets, necessitating the bailouts. Since the declared end of the Cold War, in the late 1980′s, if a Russian citizen wanted Vodka, jeans or food, they obtained these products from the former KGB (aka the Russian mafia) and these products frequently were obtained on the black market, which became bigger than the “legitimate” economy. Noted enemies of humanity, such as George Soros, are part of this movement designed to collapse economies and hold governments hostage. The American derivatives debt is now listed at a hefty $1.5 quadrillion dollars. The entire GDP of the planet is only listed at between $65 trillion and $79 trillion dollars. What the Bastards from Basel have discovered is that the American economy is resilient because the American people still possess a high degree of creativity in some circles. The banksters fear that a currency collapse may not produce the utter devastation of the United States that was once hoped for. This is what George Soros has worked so hard to achieve. Therefore, Plan B has been initiated. Plan B is the invasion of the United States from both within and without.

 Stark Reminders

As a reminder, previous parts of this series have documented the existence of Russian troops on American soil. Personally, in the last 30 days, I have now received 53 email notifications of Russian military troops training on American soil. In the previous article, I documented a bilateral agreement between FEMA and the Russian military to bring tens of thousands of Russian troops to American soil. I also previously noted, through the good work of Sherrie Wilcox, that Russian troops have already been spotted in the US wearing Dept of Homeland Security uniforms. See http://youtu.be/sVvvV2VSgew for just one example. I have previously interviewed, on The Common Sense Show, eyewitnesses to a significant Russian troop buildup in the country, with guests, such as Dr. Susan Helman, and others.

Grave Warnings

On December 22, 2013, I interviewed former deep-cover CIA agent, Dr. Jim Garrow, who was explicit about the presence of both Russian and Chinese troops in America and in Northern Mexico. He noted that the Russians are operating in cooperation with DHS. This is what Sherrie Wilcox uncovered in the abovementioned video. My insider sources have been providing me with this information for the past 18 months and it matches the Garrow account, word for word. ALL of my sources state that we will have a false flag attack(s) which will be followed by a declaration of martial law and will be largely enforced by Russian and Chinese soldiers. I have also been informed that as communities are forcibly vacated and relocated to detention facilities at stadiums, malls and heretofore secret camps, the remnants, or stragglers, of these communities will be sprayed with specifically designed bio-agents which are specially designed to completely terminate all forms of life which may have evaded the roundups. I am now just beginning to receive another piece of the puzzle which strongly appears to justify the coming bio-agent attacks. Have you ever wondered why various government agencies are hell-bent on obtaining as much DNA as possible? It is being obtained in order to be used in research.This is research which is designed to bypass certain HLA typings. In the past 48 hours, I have been approached by two whistleblowers who have worked in testing facilities both in California and Arizona. In both cases, these whistleblowers tell stories of research related to methodologies on how to bypass all HLA typings with regard to certain pathogens. The research is so volatile that many of the research personnel have fallen ill. Most disturbingly, the connecting dots are suggestive of the fact that some entity, within this country, is doing research on how to make a bio-agent so completely destructive so as not to leave any survivors. If 10 people were to be exposed to Ebola, 90% would die agonizing deaths as the victims would meet their collective demise by bleeding out of every cavity in the body as their organs literally melted down. However, 10% would survive because they would possess a special HLA typing which would help them to recover from the pathogen. The research appears to be seeking to create a pathogen which will be 100% fatal as it will overcome all types of HLA typings. What I am learning from the accounts of both whistleblowers, is that foreign doctors are involved in this research and the experimental subjects medical records are being deleted so as to not leave any trace. My military sources tell me that these pathogens will be delivered through specially designed drones and that both Russian and US intelligence sources are jointly conducting this operation. Now, to the $64 million dollar question, what does this have to do with Russian troops? The Russians have sufficient motivation to engage in an invasion of the United States because it fits both their national interests to do so and it satisfies the banking masters that they and the CIA both serve. Putin and Obama are playing for the same side. Even if Russia and America goes to war, it is planned because they are taking their marching orders from the banksters which control every single central bank on the planet. The following constitutes the Russian motivation for attacking the United States in order to obliterate our country even when a coming economic collapse may not.

Stalin’s Secret Plans to Invade Alaska In 1951

It has long been in the cards for Russia to invade the US. In 1999, at a conference held at Yale University, previously secret Russian documents revealed that Russian Dictator Joseph Stalin had undergone extensive planning in preparation to invade North America as early as 1951. The event was one of a series of programs sponsored by the Washington D.C.-based Cold War International History Project (CWIHP), which monitors new documents pertaining to the Cold War. The Yale conference centered on Stalin’s relationship with the United States. These documents, from the Cold War, revealed that Stalin had a definitive plan to attack Alaska in 1951-52 and had undergone major military preparations in anticipation of the invasion. Russia has always considered itself to be landlocked and this served as the major motivation for Russia’s planned incursion which would have given Russia access to good sea ports. Stalin subsequently died and the plans were abandoned, at least temporarily.

Historic Russian Policy Dictates An American Invasion Is Inevitable

It is clear that any Russian attack upon the United States will come through Alaska and I am now of the opinion that Russia will not wait for us to attack Iran before attacking the United States. The following paragraphs will demonstrate why Alaska is so vitally important to the fulfillment of Russia’s communist plans for world domination. British geographer and military historian, Sir Halford MacKinder, in1904, wrote an article that changed how politicians and military men viewed the world. It was a perception that influenced Hitler to send his troops eastward in an attack upon Russia in 1940. It was also the driving force that led to the underpinnings for superpower foreign policy which guided foreign policy for both sides during the Cold War. The theory that had so influenced nearly three generations of strategists was called simply, the Heartland Theory.

Basically, Mackinder’s Heartland Theory viewed geo-political military history as a struggle between land-based and sea-based powers. Mackinder believed the world had become a “closed” system, with virtually no new lands left for the Europeans powers to discover, to conquer, and to fight over without creating chaos elsewhere. According to the theory the common denominator for world conflict has been reduced to sea powers vs. land-based powers which would subsequently struggle for dominance of the world, and the ultimate victor would be in a position to set up a world empire. The determining factor in this struggle was physical geography;“Man and not nature initiates, but nature in large measure controls”.

Obama Is Complicit In the Planned Russian Invasion

alaska 2

Obama has given away seven strategic, oil-rich Alaskan islands to the Russians at a time when we could be going to war with Russia. This exemplifies Obama’s treason and is the fulfillment of the MacKinder Heartland Theory. At minimum, the oil, alone, from these Islands should be considered to be a military asset. I remain very concerned that these seven islands in the Arctic Ocean and Bering Sea could also be used as a military staging area from which to invade Alaska and defend its new claims of the mineral rich resources at the North Pole. The giving away of seven strategic, oil-rich Islands is a good start to support a claim of treason because Obama is purposely weakening the defense of Alaska. Also, local residents along the Alaskan coast have reported to me that the massive over flights along the coast have all but ceased. The F-22′s have disappeared. The Air Force says the flights have been suspended because of oxygen concerns which are impacting the pilots. Then shouldn’t the flights be replaced by F-16′s? What about national security? These over flights have been a staple of Alaskan defense since the Cold War. If we are close to war with Iran and its ally, Russia, then shouldn’t we beefing up our patrols in Alaska? Recently, the ATF asked for gun registration records in Alaska. Perhaps the Russians need to know, in advance, where the most civilian opposition will come from when they take over Alaska. Perhaps the Russians need to know which areas to deploy HLA resistant bio-weapons.

Russian troops began to carry out joint anti-terrorism drills in America in May of 2012. What terrorists could they be practicing for? The influx of Russian soldiers maybe began just as a trickle with a couple of dozen of Russians stationed at Fort Carson. However, with the FEMA bilateral agreement, it is clear the floodgates have burst wide open and Obama’s treachery is fully exposed. There exists documented facts which support the reasons why Alaska should be placed on high alert. Russia recently sent four brigades to the Arctic. The Arctic can be used as a staging area for the invasion of the North Pole to protect its recent mineral claims, but more importantly, this area of the Arctic could serve as a base of operations from which to invade Alaska with the help of pre-positioned assets within the state. In March of 2012, with a microphone left on, Obama made an unguarded comment to Russian leader Dmitry Medvedev to be “more lenient on nuclear issues” because he could be more flexible “after the November election”. Does more flexible mean killing the Keystone Pipeline prior to giving away seven rich Alaskan Islands to the Russians? Does more flexible mean letting the Russians train in Colorado Springs and in Alaska? Does being more flexible mean compromising our defense of Alaska?

More Russian Treachery Revealed

It is now on the record that Putin said that he was going to make his country the greatest country, economically, as he said in print that he is claiming part of Alaska. Adding fuel to the fire, it is now clear that Russia is also establishing plans for an Arctic industrialization. In geopolitical and military terms, it could be an easy claim to make if the military resistance in Alaska is greatly compromised, and it has been.  The last thing that country should do on a potential front line area is to close military facilities and bases, yet, this is exactly what is happening in Alaska. Obama and the Base Realignment and Closure Commission have been closing bases and/or reducing base operations all through Alaska. It has gotten so bad that the Alaskan Governor hired a lobbyist to prevent military reduction. Three years ago, a prominent Russian Professor predicted the end of the United States. The professor stated that Alaska would return to the control of Russia and that the United States would be split into six pieces.  John McCain recently said “I think it’s very clear that Russian ambitions are to restore the old Russian Empire. Not the Soviet Union, but the Russian Empire.” There is also a tunnel from Russia to Alaska being constructed. Are we funding our own demise with our tax money which is designed to set up Russia’s future? Last summer, Russia challenged west coast detection capabilities of our military by making provocative moves with their submarines inside of our territorial waters. Also, in a stunning move, Putin banned adoptions of Russian children by American parents. Could it be likely that he is looking out for the Russian adoptees as this is a reaction to what Putin knows is coming?

Conclusion

To those that say that Russia is a changed nation you are right. Russia has not changed because it is embracing Christianity, its government is decidedly playing for the dark side when it comes to spirituality. The Russians are not embracing democracy as they still kill dissident journalists and the mafia runs the country. To those that think Russia is our friend, you are deluded, naive and vulnerable. Russia is not our friend and if the American military does not step up and stop this madness, you will soon learn how real this threat is. Unlike George H. W. Bush used to constantly say, “God Bless America”, I really mean it. Short of some kind of spiritual intervention, we are all in a great deal of danger.

  1. He who controls Alaska controls the world. They better hope for a virus to kill off the population. As the Japs saw before WW2, behind everyblade of grass lies a weapon …

  2. “As reported on KTAR FM radio, Phoenix, AZ., on January 17, 2014, the cyber attacks upon Target Inc., have Russian mafia fingerprints on the identity theft of over one hundred million Americans.”

    Yep, and the NSA and Barry have absolutely NOTHING to do with it. What a crock of shit. Tell me another bedtime story, Dave.

    “The Russians are not embracing democracy as they still kill dissident journalists and the mafia runs the country.”

    Dave, you Zionist twit, the U.S. is a CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC, NOT a democracy!

    More Crazy Dave Russian stories. “The Russians are coming! The Russians are coming!”

    They’re already here, you dumbass and they are not going to announce themselves, as they will be working undercover with DHS and the foreign insurgents within our government, so STOP WITH THE FEAR-MONGERING ALREADY!!!

  3. I just finished reading this article, and must say that I admire Dave Hodges very much. I feel that his information is very credible. This article left me speechless.

    Like Dave, I fear that our once great country is on “the eve of destruction”.

    Just today while driving home from church services, I found myself thinking about America and how great she has been to so many of us.
    In addition, after stoppng at a store to purchase a few small items, and
    returning to my car I thought about the few people I had just come in contact with in the store who were kind and polite and helpful.

    While driving on home, I watched the traffic and thought about how smoothly it normally goes because, for the most part, our citizens are
    law-abiding people. People who are hard-working, kind, and just want
    to live and let live. Were it not for the “powers that be” perhaps the
    USA could survive for many more centuries.

    Dear readers of Beyond the Trenches World Report, our only hope in
    the last days is to put our trust in Jesus Christ. I know that there are some who don’t like these types of comments, but what it happening in our country and in the rest of the world can be found in God’s Word, and as I just read in Dave’s article, it is fast approaching.

    You can choose to believe that my words are “fear-mongering” or you can choose to at least give the Lord a chance in your life. I am an old woman who gave Him a chance in my life and He changed me from the inside out. The choice is yours.

    1. While I agree with your God’s word information, look up Revelation 2:9 and 3:9 and you’ll find Zionist Dave Hodges name written all over it. Be careful who you praise, be a watcher and stay vigilant.

      Remember what Jesus said,

      “And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.”

      Mark 13:37

      1. Hi, NC, and thanks for your kind words and your
        encouraging me to go to the Scriptures. I have
        just had time to read your post, and want you to
        know that I am going to read those Scriptures
        you suggested.

        You are most kind and I appreciate you, and will
        be more vigilant and will “watch” more closely.
        I am just now learning and hearing about
        “dis-info” agents and trying to sort it all out.

        Like I said, I am elderly and have only been awake
        to the truth a year or so.

        Lord bless you, my friend!

    2. Hey 1611Believer. HE changed me too. so glad it happened. keep on keeping on my dear. the victory is HIS in the end.

          1. also 1611 scripture speaks of prophets. The requirement for a prophet is 100% accuracy. if they are any less they are not to be accepted as one. that parameter has helped me a lot in years past.

    1. Only if you discount the glaring fact that the Zionist, AshkeNAZI so-called ‘jews’ are insane enough to attempt ANYTHING to further their Satanic agenda.

      Personally, I tend to keep an open mind when it comes to these parasitic cockroaches’ plans. We’re not talking aliens from some distant galaxy, far, far away, this is definitely within the realm of possibilities.

          1. He refuses to acknowledge the Zionists on a comment that I wrote on one of his articles one time as he replied to me stating that he refuses to acknowledge any groups of people and will only refer them as Globalists and Russians. After that, I was not allowed to comment on his posts anymore. That’s evidence enough for me, #1. Another comment made by someone else on that same article shortly thereafter, also stated Zionism and he got mad with them, too. He’s a Zionist.

          2. He admitted that most of the banksters were (so-called) ‘jews’, and his reply didn’t sound angry to me.

            He does, however, fall short of calling a spade a spade.

          3. I still don’t trust him, #1. But that’s just me. And Steve Quayle is even worse. I guess we’ll just have to agree to disagree on this one. lol 😉

  4. As an Alaskan property owner, I found your article interesting,, until you said they were biulding a tunnel from Alaska to Russia— totally ridiculous.
    Not only would that be the greatest engineering feat of all time, but would require more money than the fed could print. Look at the map. I am the author of a book printed in 1980 about world war 11 in Alaska, when the Japs invaded the Aueltian Islands. I traveled the Islands an saw first hand what an invasion result would look like, a tunnel from Russia to Alaska, indeed !!!!!!!.A small amount of research would be valuable to you, when you spout such a foolish theory.

    1. “A small amount of research would be valuable to you, when you spout such a foolish theory.”

      Apparently, even a small amount of research is too taxing for you to perform. You should take your own advice.

      There have been tunnels crisscrossing this country connecting the DUMBs (Deep Underground Military Bases) for decades. This is fairly common knowledge on this site. Do you have the slightest clue what the NWO is up to?

      I’d almost be willing to bet there are at least TWO tunnels from Russia/China already completed.

      Here are a couple of links to help your ‘research’ efforts:

      http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=underground+tunnels+DUMBs&qpvt=underground+tunnels+DUMBs&FORM=IGRE

      http://www.whale.to/b/underground_h.html

      If you still don’t believe these things exist after checking out this information, you’re in the wrong neighborhood here.

      1. “A machine whose heart is a compact nuclear reactor circulating liquid lithium at 2,000 degrees F.”

        http://truththeory.com/2013/02/13/elite-underground/

        Hey #1, I’m a little slow, but I just found out what these machines use, LITHIUM!

        And where is there a very large supply of lithium in the world, AFGHANISTAN!

        It looks like Poppys aren’t the only reason why the elite still want our troops in Afghanistan. Maybe they need as much lithium as they can to maintain these things. Don’t know how hard lithium is to come by, but it might be something to think about.

        1. I’ve always said the # 2 reason they invaded Afghanistan is because it is one of the most mineral rich countries in the world.

          Poppies, on the other hand, serve more than one purpose. Aside from profits, they (opiates) not only incapacitate the users so as to make them useless in the coming revolution, but it also creates more crime to pay for it, as well as killing the user, eventually.

          1. You have to keep it within the context of the rest of the sentence, uL.

            “……..incapacitate the users so as to make them useless in the coming revolution,……..”

            Been there, done that. I speak from experience. I’d no sooner trust a junkie to have my back in a gunfight (after the SHTF, or even before, for that matter), than I would a cop.

            I’m not talking incapacitated as in near comatose or anything, I’m just saying that motor skills and reaction times are compromised to the point that they’re unreliable in a real time situation, where split second decisions could mean the difference between life or death.

      2. Hey #1, got any links to any DEEP SEA underground military bases? Can’t seem to find any info. on the web. Only on DUMBs in the U.S. but nothing under the waters. I remember William Cooper mentioning a ship rising from the water when he was in the Navy in his book “Behold a Pale Horse”. But have never heard anything else on it. Any info. on underwater bases?

        1. I saw some info on several a few years ago, but I have no idea what site(s) it was on. That was before I had this computer, so it’s not in my history anywhere.

        2. What do you think of this one NC. I do not know what to think of these underwater bases. here is a link for ya to check out. http://www.etfreinds.com/Underwater.html . I just check out that link and there is a ton of links there that looks real interesting. A lot of military deep sea bases . Hope ya enjoy NC 😎

      3. You may be correct that there are tunnel crisscrossing the USA. Please be kind enough to inform us, how a tunnel from Alaska to Russia would be possible, the cunnel connecting England with France is considered agreat achievement and at one time not feasible. The closet point of Russia to the USA is Big Diomede Island, on a clear day, which is very rare, from little Diomede Island which is in Alaska, you can see Big Diomede. If you can concievably explain the possiblity of a tunnel betwwen these remote islands, and what purpose it would serve. At either end of the “tunnel”
        you would still be in the middle of nowhere, sport, I’ve been there. If you can’t handle constuctive critism, you should’t be spouting off rediculous arguments

  5. ” the cunnel connecting England with France is considered agreat achievement and at one time not feasible.”

    Child’s play, moron.

    They are LIGHT YEARS ahead of that technology.

    YOU REALLY DON’T KNOW WHAT THE F@%K IS GOING ON, DO YOU, CLOWNBOY?

    Like I said, you’re in the wrong neighborhood here. Go back to sleep, sheep. Just because your tiny brain can’t conceive of a thing, doesn’t mean it isn’t possible.

    Try learning how to spell halfway decent.

    1. HaHaHa , Yea #1, have you seen this guy here before. I do not remember him at all. I have been waiting to start sh*t but thought I better not. I am kind of in the mood to “atoukenize” but not a good idea tonight – my luck is that I would get myself in trouble if ya know what I mean #1 😉 . Real crappy last few days for me ya know #1 . Not to mention all of the new names here lately. Guess there is a lot of getting to know what these new names are about eh there bro. . I am just layin` back in the weeds before I start getting all colorful and such 😆 😎

        1. Now that I know that #1, I am getting in the mood – you`ve got back up here – not like ya realy need it though 😉

    2. Your vulgarity is becoming, I refuse to get into a battle of wits with an unarmed person. I’m glad you spell well, you certainly don’t think well.

      1. Hey there frank p lee just where the F do you see any vulgarity. #1 is one of the better debaters here and he doesn`t use vulgarity. Just where do you get off on sayin` that frankie. By the way, where have you been , haven`t seen your name here or on any other site. Are you one of those trolls that like to troll a site for a day or so just to start shit. Yea where is all of that vulgarity you talk about frank?

          1. Yes he did didn`t he. An appology is in order from him I`m thinkin . For someone that – I think – come on site and starts that is oweing a appology I would think anyway. Good job holdin` your temper #1 😎

      2. You haven’t even begun to see me get vulgar, @sshole.

        Here’s a quote from another article I posted today. It describes you perfectly.

        “At no point will the non-conspiracy theorist plan a day of research or dedicate a few hours every once in a while to research the topic or put any thought into issues.”

        Here, try reading the entire article (that’s assuming you can read any better than you can spell). You might learn something about yourself (sorry, but I won’t hold my breath on that one)……

    Russia is still a military dictatorship run behind the scenes by khazar ‘jews’.
    Putin is window dressing.
    That wasn’t difficult was it?

  7. At least the mafia of old had integrity. The KGB and CIA are puppets, serving the elite. Or less said, global, monetary whores, whom can not successfully manage a dog house. The fool’s stool vacancy spot is full. Now the only spot left is for clowns. Clowns have no integrity. Men have much.

    1. HaHaHa.Yea Nottoobitter, us that have been here for a long time are pretty protective of the site and each other. Ya should have seen me get off on NC and Angel about 2 years ago, yea, I still feel crappy about that once in a while. We all know each other pretty good now though I am proud to say. Yea, nottoobitter, older poster here are like one big family 🙂 😎

    2. One of the things I have a very low tolerance for is morons who make claims with obviously NO research on the subject.

      Stupid we can do without on this site.

      There’s always Infowars for those clowns.

  9. Russia Plans World’s Longest Tunnel, a Link to Alaska (Update4)
    By Yuriy Humber and Bradley Cook – April 18, 2007 16:38 EDT

    April 18 (Bloomberg) — Russia plans to build the world’s longest tunnel, a transport and pipeline link under the Bering Strait to Alaska, as part of a $65 billion project to supply the U.S. with oil, natural gas and electricity from Siberia.

    The project, which Russia is coordinating with the U.S. and Canada, would take 10 to 15 years to complete, Viktor Razbegin, deputy head of industrial research at the Russian Economy Ministry, told reporters in Moscow today. State organizations and private companies in partnership would build and control the route, known as TKM-World Link, he said.

    A 6,000-kilometer (3,700-mile) transport corridor from Siberia into the U.S. will feed into the tunnel, which at 64 miles will be more than twice as long as the underwater section of the Channel Tunnel between the U.K. and France, according to the plan. The tunnel would run in three sections to link the two islands in the Bering Strait between Russia and the U.S.

    “This will be a business project, not a political one,” Maxim Bystrov, deputy head of Russia’s agency for special economic zones, said at the media briefing. Russian officials will formally present the plan to the U.S. and Canadian governments next week, Razbegin said.

    The Bering Strait tunnel will cost $10 billion to $12 billion, and the rest of the investment will be spent on the entire transport corridor, the plan estimates.

    “The project is a monster,” Yevgeny Nadorshin, chief economist with Trust Investment Bank in Moscow, said in an interview. “The Chinese are crying out for our commodities and willing to finance the transport links, and we’re sending oil to Alaska.”

    In Alaska, a supporter of the project is former Governor Walter Joseph Hickel, who plans to co-chair a conference on the subject in Moscow next week.

    “Governor Hickel has long supported this concept, and he talks about it and writes about it,” said Malcolm Roberts, a senior fellow at the Anchorage-based Institute of the North, a research policy group focused on Arctic issues. Hickel governed Alaska from 1966 to 1969 as a Republican and then from 1990 to 1994 as a member of the Independence Party.

    Alaska’s current officials, however, are preoccupied with other issues, including a plan to develop a pipeline to transport natural gas from the North Slope to the lower 48 U.S. states, Roberts said.

    The U.S. government’s Federal Railroad Administration isn’t directly involved in talks about the link, agency spokesman Warren Flatau said today.

    Tsar Nicholas II, Russia’s last emperor, was the first Russian leader to approve a plan for a tunnel under the Bering Strait, in 1905, 38 years after his grandfather sold Alaska to America for $7.2 million. World War I ended the project.

    The planned undersea tunnel would contain a high-speed railway, highway and pipelines, as well as power and fiber-optic cables, according to TKM-World Link. Investors in the so-called public-private partnership include OAO Russian Railways, national utility OAO Unified Energy System and pipeline operator OAO Transneft, according to a press release which was handed out at the media briefing and bore the companies’ logos.

    Russia and the U.S. may each eventually take 25 percent stakes, with private investors and international finance agencies as other shareholders, Razbegin said. “The governments will act as guarantors for private money,” he said.

    The World Link will save North America and Far East Russia $20 billion a year on electricity costs, said Vasily Zubakin, deputy chief executive officer of OAO Hydro OGK, Unified Energy’s hydropower unit and a potential investor.

    Transport Electricity

    “It’s cheaper to transport electricity east, and with our unique tidal resources, the potential is real,” Zubakin said. Hydro OGK plans by 2020 to build the Tugurskaya and Pendzhinskaya tidal plants, each with capacity of as much as 10 gigawatts, in the Okhotsk Sea, close to Sakhalin Island.

    The project envisions building high-voltage power lines with a capacity of up to 15 gigawatts to supply the new rail links and also export to North America.

    Russian Railways is working on the rail route from Pravaya Lena, south of Yakutsk in the Sakha republic, to Uelen on the Bering Strait, a 3,500 kilometer stretch. The link could carry commodities from eastern Siberia and Sakha to North American export markets, said Artur Alexeyev, Sakha’s vice president.

    The two regions hold most of Russia’s metal and mineral reserves “and yet only 1.5 percent of it is developed due to lack of infrastructure and tough conditions,” Alexeyev said.

    Cluster Projects

    Rail links in Russia and the U.S., where an almost 2,000-kilometer stretch from Angora to Fort Nelson in Canada would continue the route, would cost up to $15 billion, Razbegin said. With cargo traffic of as much as 100 million tons annually expected on the World Link, the investments in the rail section could be repaid in 20 years, he said.

    “The transit link is that string on which all our industrial cluster projects could hang,” Zubakin said.

    Japan, China and Korea have expressed interest in the project, with Japanese companies offering to burrow the tunnel under the Bering Strait for $60 million a kilometer, half the price set down in the project, Razbegin said.

    “This will certainly help to develop Siberia and the Far East, but better port infrastructure would do that too and not cost $65 billion,” Trust’s Nadorshin said. “For all we know, the U.S. doesn’t want to make Alaska a transport hub.”

    The figures for the project come from a preliminary feasibility study. A full study could be funded from Russia’s investment fund, set aside for large infrastructure projects, Bystrov said.

    1. Yea I remember my former colleague telling me about this during lunch one time when we were teaching in China in 2007. Never heard anything about it afterwards. Kinda mysteriously disappeared off the radar until now. The elite probably don’t want to exploit any of it (keeping it a low profile) in the MSM and hoping we the people would forget about it over time.

      If it takes 10 to 15 years to complete, that would bring it to about 2017-2022. Isn’t that around the time when their Agenda 21 and NWO is supposed to be completed? Convenient.

  10. Its as I’ve said for some time, trust the Russians at your peril.
    They are not your friends. I also saw a jew speaking on this
    in a book saying “what if we only pretended to lose.”

  11. I had a friend vet another “story” from Dave , about all the Ruskies in Tennessee , and the closing of parks and barracks and seeing the Russians in their local malls and stores in military garb etc.. all Bull shit. And the guy I know down there has his eyes open and his ear to the ground out there, so I trust him more then I trust this joker
    Just my .2 cents

    1. That two cents was a dollar 100 years ago before your loving government robbed you blind.The Russian people have governmental problems of their own like anybody who has government at all .Local malls?If we had free markets we’d have the capital to tear down those malls and build factories.Too many with an ear to the ground ’cause somebody’s got a knee on the other one.

  12. I don’t know any Russians but if I did I doubt that fear would incite me to war against them.It’s the same old shit.Government(mafia) spreads fear,starts war that your taxpaying ass will fight and die for them.Russians are good chess players and the creators of vodka.I’d rather trade with them than fear them,unless you’re scared that we might be taken over by chess and vodka.If it’s their government you fear then kill for your own government you’re afraid of and leave me out of it.Fear ,like war,has no proper place amongst civilized peoples while chess if not vodka clearly do.Therefore if you choose to not partake in chess and vodka,why choose war?

  13. I’ll bet the average Russian dwells on attacking the United States as much as I or anyone else dwells on attacking anybody.People just want to grow potatoes with no interference from Monsanto.Oh,but I’m too afraid of the Russians to blah ,blah,blah.Your fear is a greater threat to freedom than the “Russians” or the “Chinese” and I almost forgot the “terrorists” could ever be.People seem to think that they’re not secure unless they’re fighting war with somebody.Ignorance is bliss.And the U.S. has nuclear capable submarines which is plenty of deterrent .The government is part of a world wide mob made of bankers,corporations,governments,assassins and pussies.In the final end they’re all pussies.So get your head straight or be enslaved by a bunch of pussies.
