“Russia’s actions are a problem. They don’t pose the No. 1 national security threat to the United States," said Obama. "I continue to be much more concerned when it comes to our security with the prospect of a nuclear weapon going off in Manhattan."
These are interesting comments in light of the fact that the U.S. is intent on distracting Russia in the Ukraine, thereby diluting (in theory) their military power in other regions of the world...like Syria.
As I've predicted in previous post(s), the Russians WILL move their military in to the Syrian (Saudi) region for a full-scale defense of their allies (Syria, Iran) by October of 2014. And, this in turn will be the signal that we are headed straight towards nuclear war, no later than 2018.
And yes, I believe that the east coast, and especially NYC's Manhattan financial district, with be at the heart of such an attack. The culprits will likely to be the Russians (not 'terrorists') who will be provoked by U.S.-backed Israelis. In particular, look for extreme tensions in 2017, between the Russians and Israeli/U.S./Saudi alliance. It will be the Israelis who will strike first, firing off the first two nukes at Russia.
Russia will be backed in to a corner, and will have no other choice but to take bold and decisive measures to protect their country. They will retaliate by firing off at least one nuclear warhead at the United State's eastern shores. I estimate this to take place no later than 2018.
This would devastate most of the U.S. east coast and parts of the Midwest (America's 'bread basket'), and force the Chinese to send troops in to the United States to block a massive exodus of radiated, and seriously ill/injured Americans from spreading West, bringing chaos and disease with them. If such events occur, there will be no U.S. government to 'save us.'
The fact that Obama would even be talking about nukes means that the government is contemplating using them at some point to shut down Russia/China. And, this will be the deadliest mistake any one, or any country, has ever made in human history.
