Russia Claims It Can Wipe Out US Navy With Single “Electronic Bomb.”

Russia is coming after the United States it seems.  We have two incidents to talk about.  First I want to post the video from FOX NEWS on the latest news on Russia.

Now we have today’s news:

  1. Russia claims it can wipe out US Navy with single “electronic bomb.”
  2. Russian bombers fly near Alaska; Air Force flies and scrambles for 12 minutes.

Lets look at incident 1.  Russia has claimed it can disable the entire US Navy in one fell swoop using powerful electronic signal jamming.  A news report from the country claims the technology could render planes, ships, and missiles useless.  Wow, if this is true, and I have no idea…what chance would we have against them if we went to war?  I know there are some experts on IWB, who would actually know this.  
Right now, I am questioning this news coming out of Russia.  The report says, “Today, our Russian Electronic Warfare (REW) troops can detect and neutralize any target from a ship’s system and a radar, to a satellite.”  The report claims a Russian war plane flew several times around American destroyer the USS Donald Cook in the Black Sea several years ago, disabling it systems and leaving it helpless.  If this is true, whoa….bad news.
The report goes on to say they are capable of creating electronic jamming domes over their own bases that make them invisible on radar screens.  Speaking of Russian bases, the new base at the Arctic is something out of a science fiction movie.  I just watched the video on it, and I will post it on this thread for you at the end.
This statement I do not understand:  The report says, “You don’t need to have expensive weapons to win – powerful radio-electronic jamming is enough.”  Are you telling me, this equipment and ability   is not expensive?  Does the US have it, too?  If not, why not?
This news comes, of course, after President Trump’s operation on the Korean Peninsula.  We now know that the USS Carl Vinson is in the sea of Japan and will not actually be in the Korean waters until a week.  I think most of us know that the US is in conflict with Russia at this time over the Syrian incident and the North Korean incident.  Russia is not happy with us, and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said our relationship with Russia is at an all time low.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has never been one to pass up a photo-up, and his latest candids comes from the icy Arctic. It’s all part of the unveiling of the country’s crown jewel: Russia’s sprawling Trefoil military base, located just outside the Arctic Circle. Jonathan Vigliotti reports.

Now lets look at incident 2. A pair of Russian nuclear-capable bombers flew near Alaska Monday night, two U.S. officials told Fox News, coming as close as 100 miles from Kodiak Island — the first time since President Trump took office that Moscow has sent bombers so close to the U.S.
The two Russian Tu-95 “Bear” bombers flew roughly 280 miles southwest of Elmendorf Air Force Base, within the Air Defense Identification Zone of the United States.
The U.S. Air Force scrambled two F-22 stealth fighter jets and an E-3 airborne early warning plane to intercept the Russian bombers.
The American jets flew alongside the Russian bombers for 12 minutes, before the Russian bombers reversed course and headed back to their base in eastern Russia.
Last week in Moscow, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said U.S.-Russian relations were at a “low point” while sitting next to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
While Tillerson was in Moscow, three Russian bombers flew near the east coast of Japan, forcing the Japanese military to scramble 14 fighter jets at various times to intercept the bombers. A Russian spy plane also flew along Japan’s west coast.
The last time Russian bombers flew near the U.S. was July 4, 2015, when a pair of Russian bombers flew off the coasts of Alaska and California, coming as close as 40 miles to Mendocino, Calif.
Russian President Vladimir Putin called then-President Barack Obama to wish him a happy Independence Day while the bombers cruised the California coastline.
All I can say is this is not good.  But what is good for the United States militarily right now?  Not much that I can see.

  1. The USS Donald (DUCK!) Cook Aegis Missile Cruiser (the best in the fleet) was SHUT OFF, BSOD (blue screen of death) 2x, in 2 different seas, in 2 different years with 2 different MicroSoftON operating systems: Win XP, and Win10.
    To show it wasn’t a fluke, or just a systems failure of the USS Donald (DUCK!) Cook, they did the same to the USS Porter. Yeah, the same missile boat that launched it’s tomahawks illegally into Syria recently.
    The Russians NEVER bluff. They are NOT poker players, the US velvet mafia satanic pedo controllers are, Trump has not only made himself a one term President, a sock puppet for the rogue government and deep state, but forced the Russians to show the US would lose any war against them…
    The Russian “Bear” bomber is so loud, you literally can hear it just from it’s propellers 100s of miles away. It is though capable of launching ground attack nuclear and non-nuclear stealth cruise missiles that can fly SO FAR, they are not included in weapons treaties, being able to fly LONGER than the agreement. That bomber was there just as a reminder and reinstallation of Cold war policies, not a threat per se. A real threat from Russia would happen before America could detect it. Never forget that.

      • Hey, just because I scored a 99th percentile on the ASVAB, doesn’t make me military. One side of my family though are military. The other side, more business and doctor people.
        Just because they offered me MOSs like “Forward Air Controller.” doesn’t do so either.
        After I was told the level of security clearance I had to get, I spoke to my uncle, who was the Command Master Chief of the USS Forrestal before he retired, and I asked him what level he had had. He told me a clearance LOWER than I would have to be approved.
        I had unpaid student loans from my adv degree, because I believed in the trickle up theory of debt: if you don’t employ the white man, in his STEM subject, one of only ~1,000 that got that degree that year in the US, and not from some finger painting University, you can eat his debt, so I was pretty sure I would not be approved.
        Because like all the worst spy cases in US history have ALWAYS been from people with sterling financial positions, sure deny me because I needed to get a loan for grad school. Good thinking.
        I made my enlistment contingent on the security clearance approval. I waited a few months and then was contacted that I was now too old to enlist. So, instead, I watched my sons grow up. So be it.

        • Thanks for that inside information, Jeff. You were probably much better off to never have that clearance. Of course, you were, because you were able to watch your boys grow up. I lost a son, and I cannot tell you how fortunate you are. I think we need to rethink what “success” really is in this society. All the definitions of success are no longer valid, as the “successful” we are observing are without morals, not trustworthy…their word means nothing…they are fake successes. When they die, they will go back to dust and ashes. Will there be anyone to remember their contribution to the lives of those who trusted them…that is in a positive way? No. They leave nothing but dust and ashes behind. Where did they go? Well, lets put it this way, it sure ain’t the pearly gates.

  2. This may very well actually be good news. Russia has been acting reasonably for a long time. They don’t fire Tomahawk missiles at an “enemy” who very likely did nothing to provoke it (all evidence points at the gas attack being a false flag). They don’t drop MOABs on countries they’ve invaded illegally.
    Given this, Russia seemingly having the upper hand may well prevent the start of World War 3. Russia doesn’t seem too keen on starting that war even if they were sure they’d win. Unfortunately can’t say the same about us — but I’m counting on not even neocon scum being stupid enough to start a war they know they’d lose.
    Russia’s actions now are entirely consistent with my thoughts – they’re showing off what they have to remind the neocon terrorists that if they push for war, they’re going to be on the losing side.
    Powerful electronic jamming is not all that expensive compared to other weaponry. But it’s hard to get right (especially because you can’t assume you can get close to the target – which might just shoot you down before you can start jamming. You want to be able to shut down the opponent before they can detect you or fire at you). It looks like Russia did its homework researching the technology while the US military focused on developing weapons that do more and more damage to “enemies” that are unable to return fire in the first place.
    If you’re convinced nobody will dare return fire, you don’t develop defensive weapons designed to merely shut down the opponent’s offensive capability.

  3. Do the Russians have any electronics to tell our governmental leaders WHERE our ships are? Our best and brightest all seem to think our fleet is going towards North Korea when they are heading for Australia. They probably have NO IDEA where our subs are.

    • You know, Tony, someone said that all the countries should know where the ships and subs are, because they have satellite capabilities. What does this mean? North Korea has satellites. Are the American people being played?

  4. A lot of our military equipment is as old as my granny’s gray wig and a lot of stuff which is newer is junk. The Russians get better stuff and they don’t pay through the nose to the military industrial complex.

    • Right….everything we have a lot comes from China. North Korea gets Russia’s hand me downs, and they say their stuff is worn out. It sounds like the world is playing soldier, and the only ones who are not playing is Russia….they really are the soldiers.

  5. I’ve noticed that the news about Syria has abruptly gone away from the US mainstream media and we’re being distracted with the MOAB in Afghanistan and the confrontation with North Korea. I suspect it’s because the neocons are well aware that a sizable number of our cruise missiles malfunctioned and it’s occurred to them that the Russians may not be bluffing about their electronic warfare capabilities. So maybe we won’t have war with Russia over Syria after all . . . .
