Russia named NATO’s military buildup near its border as the main military threat and raised the possibility of using precision conventional weapons as a “strategic deterrent,” according to the nation’s new military doctrine signed by President Vladimir Putin Friday.

NATO flatly denied it was a threat to Russia, and accused Russia of undermining European security.

The new doctrine, which comes amid Russia-West tensions over Ukraine, maintains the provisions of the previous, 2010 edition of the military doctrine regarding the use of nuclear weapons.

It says Russia could use nuclear weapons in retaliation to the use of nuclear or other weapons of mass destruction against it or its allies, and also in case of aggression involving conventional weapons that “threatens the very existence” of the Russian state.

    If one disagrees with the author, then are the comments then deleted?
    There is a fine line between being out of line and having valid thoughts on an article that need to be expressed.
    Over the holidays, I have noticed a good number of comments are not posted.
    There is a disconnect between comments still below the article and what they commented on.
    I think it is time to post rules on-line as to what is regulated and what is not and for what reason things are censored.
    Might save everyone a lot of time.
    I have noticed for instance that the Russian tanks have no protection around the treads. People have disabled that tread on other tanks with things as silly as a metal pipe.
    I think it should concern everyone that the Russians are re-arming against international treaties they have signed.
    First rule of contracts: Honor the agreements that you have made. Otherwise you are known as a contract breaker and no one will make agreements with you.
    In the spring and early summer, Russia did confiscate a company worth about 137 million dollars. They did it illegally and the confiscation goes all the way up the chain of command to Putin. That is common knowledge due to 60 minutes broadcasting and accusing Putin of doing such a thing last summer. The state department is still trying to get this company their money back. Contract breaking.
    Now all the rest of the American companies involved in Russian commerce have been quietly picking up their companies and leaving as soon as possible. The same thing is going on with European Companies that also fear people that confiscate companies within Russian Territory.
    There is a movie out there called Charlie’s War. It concerns the bankruptcy of Russia in Afghanistan. It concerns us because what is good for the goose is often good for the gander. Charley was a Congressman working in conjunction with the rebels against the invasion of the Afghanistan by the Russians. Bottom line here is 1 million dollar Russian Combat Helicopters were no match for Afghanistan people on horseback with portable missiles shot from horseback. The Russians lost their shirts in that venture. They were taking out one or two helicopters a day. The story was based on a true story.
    We too have a tendency to make very expensive vulnerable weapon systems. But Russia is doing it all over again like Afghanistan never happened. Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.
    The current administration in Russia is certainly appearing to do the same thing.

    All this ridiculous saber rattling against Russia is totally pointless. Americunts should have learned by now that enemies are manufactured by governments. This increase defense spending and profits corporations immensely.

    Russia is not my enemy. The Russian people are not my enemy. I do not have any enemies other then stupidity, greed and arrogance. When I find that in anyone, then you’re my enemy because you advocate an existence that cannot be tolerated.

    It should also be extremely obvious now that the real enemy isn’t people – it’s governments. The US government ranks among the very worst of the worst in the world as being deceitful, corrupt liars capable of torture, murder, assassinations and the overthrowing of lawfully elected governments.

    I could give a fuck about what Russia or China or any other country is doing. All I care about, all that anyone should care about, is what the United Slaves is doing (if you’re an Americunt). That’s all that matters and that’s all that actually affects each and every one of us.

    The US is the top threat in the world – to virtually ALL other countries – so the headlie above is quite ridiculous.

    Americunts need to learn to mind their own damned business and take care of their own, otherwise, they’re going to piss off too many others, creating real enemies because of their meddling in foreign affairs and sovereign nations. This has already happened, which is why this fucked up kountry is so hated all over the world and why there is now so much resistance to American Empire. Good for them.

    We meddle, interfere, manipulate, cajole, force, torture and murder our way all over the world. We’re also the world’s largest arms dealer, engaging in the business of death on a global scale, yet we have the gall to call this kountry “democratic” and “free”. We’re the most enslaved people on the entire planet with the world’s stupidest population of slaves.

    Fuck Russia. I simply do not care what they’re doing, it is none of my business and NEVER WILL BE. I do not live there. I am not responsible for what Russia is allegedly doing or not doing. I feel this way about all other countries besides this one. This is the one I live in. This is the one that is manufacturing a living hell for hundreds of countries around the world. This is the one that has invaded, occupied and set up military bases all over the world, ostentatiously to “protect Americunts interests”. This is a euphemism for corporate Amerikaka, which has forced it’s way into the political landscape worldwide, holding humanity hostage to its insatiable demands for profit. These greedy mother-fuckers need to be abolished, along with the compliant “government” we’re still stuck with.

    ANYTHING published about other countries in the Americunt media is immediately suspect as being lies. The journalistic integrity in this kountry is totally absent, many deceptions, falsehoods, fabrications and coverups have been enabled by the media here. So whatever is finally published for Americunt connedsumption is undoubtedly a bastardization of the real truth. So don’t trust it. Don’t even bother reading Americunt news sources for this reason.
