FOR a while there were absolute silence regarding conflicts across the world- and especially when the “Big Guns” are involved. The last time the MSM reported any major conflict was during the Syria invasion. For this past months everything suddenly became eerily quiet. And that is worrisome to say the least. Our attention is deliberately diverted away from any major movement in the world’s war arena. So- what really is going on? 

Well- a LOT of things has been “going on” lately – all in “stealth” mode that is- mainly overt operations between the superpowers that constantly seek world domination. It appears the global powers engaged each other again in another type of “cold war”– preparing here- spying there..and testing each other’s capabilities and alertness on various levels to seek loopholes in their opponent’s defense lines.

Such was one incident that went quite unnoticed this past weeks.  Russian nuclear-powered submarines conducted an exercise near American military bases with the objective of avoiding detection as they came close to the US coast, a submarine squadron commander told a Russian military TV channel. The stunning revelation was made in a military TV series set to air on Zvezda (‘Star’), the Russian Defense Ministry’s official broadcaster. (Link) The episode focuses on Akula-class Shchuka-B nuclear-powered attack submarines.

According to a submarine officer filmed in the show, the Navy command ordered to take position in the vicinity of US military bases during exercises. “This mission has been accomplished, the submarines showed up in the set location in the ocean and returned to base,” the commander of the submarine squadron, Sergey Starshinov, told Zvezda. Asked if the submarines had managed to stay off the radar during the mission, Starshinov replied: “Yes. This is our objective – to come and go undetected.” The Navy commander said the Russian vessels came “close enough” to American shores but did not violate US maritime borders, remaining in neutral waters.


The date and location of the covert mission have not been disclosed, but the channel said the Russian nuclear-powered submarines “reached the very coastline of the US.” The Shchuka-B submarine has been commissioned for the Soviet Navy in 1986. The nuclear-powered sub is capable of launching Kalibr or Granat cruise missiles, engaging underwater targets with its 553mm torpedoes, and staying submerged for up to 100 days, according to open sources. As with many Russian nuclear submarines, the information of their status as well as current and past deployments is sparse. It is understood that several submarines of this class are being operated by the Russian Navy or undergoing modernization. One Shchuka-B submarine was leased to India, where it entered service under the name INS ‘Chakra’.

In 2016, a senior US Navy official complained the military branch cannot ensure full awareness of Russian submarine deployments which were at the level unseen since the Cold War. “The submarines that we’re seeing are much more stealthy,” Admiral Mark Ferguson, commander of US Naval Forces in Europe at the time, told CNN. The Russians “have more advanced weapons systems, missile systems that can attack land at long ranges,” and their operational capabilities were getting better “as they range farther from home waters.”  Russia is planning more than 500 naval exercises next year, including joint drills with China and India. The plans include over 500 tactical drills of naval forces at sea Russian Navy Commander-in-Chief Admiral Vladimir Korolyov said in an interview with the newspaper Krasnaya Zvezda.

On the other side of the ocean  the British also were engaged in “cloak-and-dagger” operations to prevent Russian warships coming too close for comfort to the English coast.  In an incident recently British warships had to scramble to engage Russian ships sailing “too close for comfort” to the British waters. HMS Westminster set sail to meet the ships – which included two warships and two support vessels – as they moved off the shores of Britain. Royal Navy vessels are often called out to escort Russian craft as they move near British waters. The Ministry of Defence confirmed it is aware of the incident. British vessels have been called out a number of times in recent months to meet Russian warships near the UK. It comes amid renewed tensions with Vladimir Putin over accusations of election meddling and continued unease between Russia and NATO. The UK and US currently are busy with a massive display of military might off the coast of Scotland in an exercise to display power.


The US aircraft carrier USS George Bush and the British carriesr HMS Queen Elizabeth both laden with fighter jets – are busy conducting military exercises.

And in the Pacific arena India again  will host navies from at least 16 countries for an eight-day mega naval exercise from 6 March with an aim to expand regional cooperation and combat “unlawful activities “  in critical sea lanes. The biennial exercise ‘Milan’ is being organised at the Andaman and Nicobar Islands in the backdrop of China’s growing military posturing in the Indo-Pacific region and officials said the issue is likely to figure during deliberations among navy chiefs of the participating countries at the event.”The interactions during Milan encompass sharing of views and ideas on maritime good order and enhancing regional cooperation for combating unlawful activities at sea,” Spokesperson of Indian Navy Capt DK Sharma said. He said the countries which are participating in the exercise include Australia, Malaysia, Maldives, Mauritius, Myanmar, New Zealand, Oman, Vietnam, Thailand, Tanzania, Sri Lanka, Singapore, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Kenya and Cambodia.  Officials said China’s military manoeuvres in the South China Sea may figure during discussions among navy chiefs of the participating countries at the event.

The Chinese also are busy pumping up the jam of their military power at sea. As the crisis in the Maldives continues, with the recalcitrant president, Abdulla Yameen, having extended the state of emergency that he put in place early in February 2018-  the Chinese People’s Liberation Army-Navy (PLAN) foray into the Eastern Indian Ocean has gained some attention, particularly in the Indian press. A Chinese surface action group, comprising a Type 071 amphibious transport ship and four other vessels, including destroyers and a supply ship, entered the eastern Indian Ocean for a regularly scheduled exercise dubbed “Navy Blue 2018A.”  The deployment was curiously only reported on in detail by Sina, which included a map purporting to show the movement of the vessels. Even Reuters‘ report—the source many subsequent English-language reports have replied on—sourced its claim to this same Sina report, noting that there was no link to the situation in the Maldives. With one exception discussed below, Chinese state media, including PLA Daily, which generally reports on exercises and naval movements, have yet to publicize the deployment.  According to Sina, the surface action group entered the Indian Ocean for “supply and logistics training.”

China and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) plan to hold maritime drills later this year in a move security analysts said could be Beijing’s way of consolidating power as it moves forward with militarization efforts in the South China Sea. The two sides announced the agreement earlier this week in Singapore, which hosted defense ministers from the region and Chinese Gen. Chang Wanquan. A joint statement said while all parties agreed terrorism remained the key challenge in the region, participants reaffirmed the importance of coming up with a code to prevent unplanned encounters on the sea and air.

MEANWHILE  Russia last night issued a chilling warning to Britain not to threaten a nuclear power as Kremlin officials ignored Theresa May’s midnight deadline to explain how a  nerve agent that poisoned a former spy and his daughter found its way into Britain. As Mrs May prepared to unveil retaliatory measures against Moscow, Vladimir Putin’s officials refused to explain how Sergei Skripal was poisoned with the military-grade chemical weapon. And – in a coded reference to President Putin’s warnings about his nuclear arsenal ability – Russian officials warned: ‘Any threat to take punitive measures against Russia will meet with a response. The British side should be aware of that.’ Moscow did not comply with a deadline of midnight last night to answer Britain’s questions about the poisoning outrage in Salisbury ten days ago. This means that – with the backing of the US, Germany and France – Mrs May is now heading toward a showdown with President Putin and his government.

 It appears that the super powers just cannot come to an agreement of peace with each other. On the one hand are they conducting military  exercises together with each other- and on the other hand are they preparing for war with each other. It reminds one of two drunkards  in a bar. They booze together- then go out into the street- slog the hell out of each other- then go back into the bar- and continue to booze together again. On the end of the day they still remain drunkards. Such is the super powers and their respective leaders. On the end of the day they remain drunken political war mongers- intoxicated  by the blood of the innocent.
Lately the focus is preliminary on a war at sea- with each super power showing some muscle to it’s rivals. Whether this is done as a preliminary warning to other opponents- only exercises to “sharpen up” the military capabilities and readiness, – or whether it is to display their most recent modern additions to their war arsenals to other competitors in the world domination plan – is still unclear. But frankly with so many Nuclear Ballistic missiles stacked in each of these countries underground  silos and beneath the hulls of hidden submarines- one wonders what role the super navies actually will be playing as “D-Day” arrives.
