Ready for a Fight: Russia's New Security Policy


news.yahoo.com

Diminishing supplies of oil and natural gas will push countries into violent competition, the Kremlin predicted in a long-awaited national security strategy paper released this week. The document foresees these struggles playing out in the Arctic as well as the Middle East, the Barents Sea, the Caspian Sea and Central Asia - and states that Russia is prepared to fight for its share of the world's resources.

Russia says that eventually there will be a fight for resources and that they are prepared. At some point oil and natural gas supplies will begin to dwindle and there probably will be fighting. This seems like an eventuality, but are they jumping the gun? Do they know something about the supplies of these resources we don't?

Russia, has known resources are running low, lower then I presume we are seeing them announced, as thirty to fifty years in the future till they 'dry up'.

Russia has made a starch point in being the first to cultivate the areas with resources, and the gov'ts have been willing to give it to them.

They know once we run out, and they have the last remaining, there will inevitably be a fight.

Imagine everyday americans paying 70 dollars a gallon, unless the US agrees to some conclusion to get oil from russia. American people will undoubtedly give up next to anything to continue on their way of life, while at the same time giving it up...

They know what their doing, they know what we're doing, its a game of risk, but instead of armies its resources, but the armies will come.

That is exactaly why were there . North Korea threatend us with nukes and it was like no big deal . We are just keeping an eye on them with a coulpe ships and a few satalites. Now if there was oil there, totally different story.Its intresting how all the worlds armies are placing themselves right where the Bible says where TSHTF. And they are probably worried because we have bases all around them.

Russia already provides a lot of Europes' domestic gas. Countries that the pipelines cross are strategically very important to Russia. Russia has troops on each border of the strategically situated former USSR countries that now seek independence from Russia and a return to sovereignty.

That Russia has not only identified that oil and gas supplies will diminish but also made the pre-emptive political strike, ie, the stated intent to protect these supplies with force if necessary, is I believe, indicative of a hidden desire to control supply of these resources.

And possibly, the statement also advertises the fact that they have supplies to protect. If for whatever reason, supplies from other regions of the globe are disrupted or destroyed, the world now knows, or has been reminded, that Russia has some for sale.

As a matter of fact this no real news, back on 07 it was splashed all over the news how Russia caught everyone while they were asleep. These Super Powers who have the combined nukes to blow planet earth up over and over 20 odd times are not going to kill each other off, but rather divide who ever is too be divided.



Russia has laid claim to the seafloor at the North Pole, planting its national flag underwater in the hopes of securing the Arctic's potential motherlode of natural resources.

In an unprecedented dive beneath the ice, two three-person submersibles descended 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) to the bottom, where one symbolically dropped a titanium capsule containing a Russian flag.

More countrys should protect their resources, remember the times when countries were invaded for certain resources back in history seems like its going happen agian pretty soon.

Iraq just a start for resource stealing ?

You know, it's great that people still think that we have dwindling natural resources.

Don't you all know the world is living entity, and it replenishes itself as we take it. Now there are certain things that go away and don't come back for a while, as in oil and gold, but really people, these things aren't lost forever once we tap them.

In any case, Russia always says they will fight for their right to resources, which is primarily why there is a fight going on in Northern Canada as to who owns the oil reserves there.

If there was nothing up there, then it would be Canada's as it's part of our territory, yet as soon as somebody found oil, suddenly it's everybodys.

Anyway, that was a bit off topic, but I don't really see a war coming for natural resources, scarcity is something they lie about constantly to drive up prices and put populations on edge.

The water wars however, might happen ,since countries are too cheap to build centers to purify salt water, they are going to fight over the fresh water when it starts to dwindle.

But oil and the others, ha, give me a break.

Yeah and we'll be the ones (USA) doing the invading. Look, you guys are very compartmentalized in your thinking. The goal of the power elite that rule the world i.e. control the money supply is a one world government and a one world economy. Countries like Russia stand in the way of this as well as over highly sovereign ultra-nationalistic countries. They are few and far between but the most powerful two are China and Russia. The elite cabal that is currently running the world and has been running the world since WWII is located in three places, Washington, London, and Italy. Russia and China are not part of this "club". So the future will most definitely be war with both of these countries. If they were smart they'd start aligning themselves and working together. Because greater Europe, the US and our allies are still a very formiddable power that as things stand now would literally crush both countries. But the future is changing and America and Europe are growing weak due to many inside pressures.

But again, those that control the world right now are VERY powerful. Russia will get crushed if they don't play ball.

PS. It's NOT about natural resources. It's about power and control. If natural resources were at the heart of these issues America would be much "greener" than it is. Hell we produce enough food to feed the world twice over. Natural resources has nothing to do with it. It's just an excuse to cause war and fear and create a one world government/new world order.
