Russia’s Elderly Are Stockpiling For World War III – What Do They Know?

Russia's Elderly Are Stockpiling For World War III – What Do They Know?

MOSCOW — Many residents of Russia and other nations across Europe and Asia believe that a world war involving the United States is just around the corner, and they’re stockpiling for it, too.

Moscow, in fact, is gripped by “war fever,” former CNN correspondent Jill Dougherty wrote at the Wilson Center website. She travels across Europe frequently and says war fears are increasing among leaders and ordinary people alike.

“Recently, I grabbed a taxi in Moscow,” she wrote. “When the driver asked me where I was from, I told him the United States. ‘I went there once,’ he said, ‘to Chicago. I really liked it.’”

Then the driver added, “But tell me something. When are we going to war?”

The fears are being stoked by growing conflicts between countries like America, China, Russia and India.

At an office building, Dougherty asked another Russian about the mood in the “working class Moscow neighborhood.”

“The old people are buying salt, matches and gretchka [buckwheat], he tells me—the time-worn refuge for Russians stocking up on essentials in case of war,” she wrote.

In Russia, the fears are stoked by Vladimir Putin’s government, which is pouring out propaganda against the United States and NATO.

“Here, there is no softening of language; NATO and the U.S. are the enemy and Russia must be ready for attack,” Dougherty wrote.

Russia Today (RT) recently ran a news story with the headline, “Killer airwaves: Russia starts trial of electromagnetic warfare system.” It would, the story says, “guarantee complete neutralization of all enemy electronics.”

A Sputnik News headline read: “New Russian Bomber to Be Able to Launch Nuclear Attacks From Outer Space.”

“In the past two months, I’ve traveled to the Baltic region, to Georgia, and to Russia,” Dougherty wrote. “Talk of war is everywhere.”

Russian leaders see NATO – of which the US is a member – as ready to go to war.

Former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev said that NATO’s rhetoric at a Warsaw summit “simply howls about the effort to almost announce war against Russia.” NATO “talks about defense, but actually is preparing for offensive action,” he added.

NATO is planning to deploy four new multinational battalions to Eastern Europe – in Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia – that border or are near Russia.

Sergei Karaganov, a member of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Foreign Policy and Defense Council, told Der Spiegel that Western propaganda “is reminiscent of the period preceding a new war.”

“The help offered by NATO is not symbolic help for the Baltic states,” he said. “It is a provocation. If NATO initiates an encroachment – against a nuclear power like ourselves – it will be punished.”

  1. It is not Putin and Russia which seeks conflict. Crimea has long been under Russian dominion, so the whole business of stirring up Ukraine and stoking the ‘conflict’ rhetoric on the part of McCain, Graham, Clinton, and lots of neo-Conservative Republicans as well as statist Democrats is a canard.

    What we’re likely seeing is those with vested interests in the “uni-party” of statist Republicans and Democrats, who are very embroiled in supporting the plutocratic class (mega-finance, the industrial-military and congressional complex, etc.) pressing NATO ever more towards infringing on Russia’s “zone of security,” which is fully understandable historically.

    The U.S. has long manipulated in this hemisphere under the banner of the “Monroe Doctrine,” but the above mentioned interests, which only serve their own objectives and not that of the common good, wish to deny an analogous political claim to Russia, which is extremely complex country, to say the least.

    • ???
      Hate to say it but that is a bunch of Drivel from you Leon.

      Russia has been and for most of its history has been the agressor every time. Putin is just fallowing along in the true Stalin/Lenin tradition of world domination.

      It is the weakness of the current occupant of the White house that has led to this more than anything else. Also, if you know much about prophecy the rise of Russia again makes sense if the last days and times of sorrow are indeed soon to come or have been entered into.

      • Russia the aggressor here, Col? You have no proof of that, because it isn’t even close to the truth. The USA is on a mission of global domination, of which it is going to fail, while bankrupting the country and endangering the entire world with nuclear war at the same time. If you truly believe what you posted, you have been brainwashed!
