    Russian analyst urges nuclear attack on Yellowstone National Park and San Andreas fault line

    A Russian geopolitical analyst says the best way to attack the United States is to detonate nuclear weapons to trigger a supervolcano at Yellowstone National Park or along the San Andreas fault line on California's coast.

    The president of the Academy of Geopolitical Problems based in Moscow, Konstantin Sivkov said in an article for a Russian trade newspaper on Wednesday, VPK News, that Russia needed to increase its military weapons and strategies against the "West" which was "moving to the borders or Russia".

    He has a conspiracy theory that NATO - a political and military alliance which counts the US, UK, Canada and many countries in western Europe as members - was amassing strength against Russia and the only way to combat that problem was to attack America's vulnerabilities to ensure a "complete destruction of the enemy".

    Conspiracy theory: The president of the Academy of Geopolitical Problems based in Moscow, Konstantin Sivkov.

    "Geologists believe that the Yellowstone supervolcano could explode at any moment. There are signs of growing activity there. Therefore it suffices to push the relatively small, for example the impact of the munition megaton class to initiate an eruption. The consequences will be catastrophic for the United States - a country just disappears," he said.

    US Forces to Hold Exercises in Ukraine - ABC News

    The United States plans to send soldiers to Ukraine in April for training exercises with units of the country's national guard.

    Ukraine's Interior Minister Arsen Avakov said in a Facebook post on Sunday that the units to be trained include the Azov Battalion, a volunteer force that has attracted criticism for its far-right sentiments including brandishing an emblem widely used in Nazi Germany.

    Avakov said the training will begin April 20 at a base in western Ukraine near the Polish border and would involve about 290 American paratroopers and some 900 Ukrainian guardsmen.

    Pentagon spokesman Col. Steve Warren said the troops would come from the 173rd Airborne Brigade based in Vincenza, Italy.

    This should end well...

    Wrong, it would be catastrophic to the world. I do not believe that the Russian will be nuking Yellowstone. It makes no sense. If Yellowstone goes, it will affect the whole planet, Russians included. Now if it was ISIS or radical ragheads that said this I would believe because they are suicidal in their mission. The Russians are not suicidal.

    As for the American troops in Ukraine probably. I think their have been articles of troops on the border for months. It is really hard to figure what is really fact & what is fiction.

    Yeah, We also have lunatics in high places in DC sitting around conjuring up the same kind of idiocy. First strike probably targets all Russian vodka distilleries. That would put orange juice suppliers in dire straits causing economic collapse of both economies. What? Makes as much sense as nuking Yellowstone.

    No, but it would be a huge one, if issued by Putin himself, just to make obummer look stupid and weak.

    Losing Jellystone would suck, but Kali??:sneaky:

    Don't think it will work, a guy named Zorin already tried it. Luckily for the USA, Commander Bond was there in the nick of time...

    It doesn't take Putin to make him look stupid and weak... Hell, even Kerry makes him look stupid and weak.

    I could see where military planners would look into something like that. In a couple of years the world would be good but the U.S would be screwed for decades, we would no longer exist. Imo we could never come back from something like that. Of course Russia would be a waste land after we were finished. Then it would be all about India, China, and Brazil. They would be the big winners.

    We are already doing it to ourselves - all they have to do is wait a few years.
