COLD WAR 21: Russia Tests ICBM

August 28, 2008

Last night Russia tested a stealth ICBM (Inter Continental Ballistic Missile), and reported that it was a successful endeavor. International experts say that the test was meant to alarm the West, and the World.

“The RS-12M Topol, designed to dodge defence systems, has a range of 6,125 miles — enough to reach Britain — with a 550-kiloton warhead capable of devastating a 14-mile wide area.” (source)

Coming on the heels of the Russian-Georgian war, this test fire has produced mixed reactions from around the world.

The UK says that no one wants to start a nuclear war with Russia.
Curiously, the Chinese are condemning the test fire last night as an unnecessary show of force against Georgia: The SCO (Shanghai Cooperation Organisation), made up of China and Black Sea states, said: “Relying on the use of force has no prospects and hinders a settlement of local conflicts. We urge the sides to solve problems peacefully.”

When the Chinese criticize their Russian comrades for demonstrating force, it is time to be suspicious. Is it possible that the Chinese are secretly aligned with Russia’s goals of imperialism, and are acting as pseudo-brokers of peace in order to give the Bear UN Security Council cover for accomplishing it’s goals?
