Each Party shall provide the other Party notification, through the Nuclear Risk Reduction Centers of the United States of America and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, no less than twenty-four hours in advance, of the planned date, launch area, and area of impact for any launch of a strategic ballistic missile: an intercontinental ballistic missile (hereinafter "ICBM") or a submarine-launched ballistic missile (hereinafter "SLBM").


They have to, supposedly, give 24 hours notice. I wonder if they did.

Speaking of Asen, I haven't seen anything from him for a while. Hope everything/one is ok. Wonder if he finally decided to pack up and move....


Asen posted about 4 hours ago, so I think he is probably ok and probably still in Ukraine.


I thought he said he was not in Ukraine and is in Canada with friends and family being in the Ukraine???

MM


I think that was someone else that said they were in Canada. I searched Asen's posts in threads and didn't see any reference to that. If I understood correctly, Asen said he and his family are in western Ukraine about 2km from the border with Poland.

As Russia flexes its muscles over Ukraine, what options has the West got? Would the US consider using military force? Here's a round-up of what's on the table.

Best quote from that article IMHO is-

" Analysts agree that there is no prospect of Nato going to war with Russia over Ukraine."

Questions for people who believe the Russian side of the story:

1. Russia claims that the Maidan protesters were paid by Germany. We know the FSB records cell phone calls, as proven by the release of the "____ the Europeans" tape. Where are the recordings/ intercepted emails/ surveillance camera footage to support this claim?

2. Russia claims that the are "protecting 'ethnic Russians.'" Where is there documentation of threats against the "Russian" population coming from the Kiyev government? Can they even find fringe elements like Svoboda making these threats? Why are there no videos of this attempted "ethnic cleansing?"

3. Russia claims that it has no troops operating outside of its bases. Why are the alleged Self Defense Force driving around in vehicles with Russian plates and explaining that they have to wait for orders from Moscow?

4. Russia claims that Yanukovych is still the legal president and has asked for Russia's assistance. Where is he?

5. Russia claims that Crimea has legally seceded from Ukraine and is now a legitimate "independent republic." What procedure was used to secede, and was it legal under the Ukrainian constitution.

6. Why are Russian flags being flown over buildings in regions that Russia claims are "independent?"

Any guesses?

Yeah, that's the way to do it... tell people how far you're not willing to go. I see Putin didn't make the same mistake, judging from the missile test.

Anyone know if there is a public link to current US Defcon condition (current meaning after the ICBM test)? I don't know if that's secret or not, but a number of sites claim that the US was at Defcon 5 on Saturday, March 2nd. That is the normal (lowest) Defcon condition.

Interesting what this page says about this conflict .

""Russia invades Ukraine in an attempt to hold onto the Crimea region and its warm water port there. The United States, meanwhile, shows absolutely no intent to involve itself militarily. While NATO discusses the matter, there is very little chance that NATO or the EU intend to go beyond some kind of sanctions, if that. This conflict appears to remain localised with no potential to escalate."""

Does the DWS report the DEFCON status of the US military?

No. We are not affiliated with any government agency and DWS does not represent the alert status of any military branch. Military DEFCON levels are secret. We don't know them and wouldn't report them even if we did as that would compromise US security.

Thank you, but that page is one of the ones that only shows the Defcon condition as of Saturday, March 2, 2014. Unless that means that it has not changed. A lot has happened since Saturday. I suspect that page is not updated in realtime.

Your post reminds me of that movie. Can't think of the name but it was that scene where Nickleson screams "You can't handle the truth"

I believe this to be one of those," Truth is stranger than fiction" moments.

Fear is a very powerful feeling.

Uh, the USSR hasn't existed for some time now. You'd think some one a some point would've updated the policy to reflect the Russian Federation.

Thanks. I had a feeling the current Defcon condition might be secret, and I can understand why it would be although I could also see that sometimes you might want to use it to send a message similar to Putin's ICBM message.

Russia Tests ICBM

Putin has lost the plot , They are claiming it was a scheduled test but surely these things don't get launched very often ?
