Russia’s Response to comments by Minister of Defense Fallon–Britain would be ‘literally erased from the face of the earth’ if it launched a nuclear attack


ed note–As the Russians have demonstrated now for some time, they do not act rashly or disproportionately. When provoked by the West, they quietly bide their time while considering the appropriate response to something, whether it is in the form of language or military action.

Language of this sort underscores that the Russians are taking this whole business of the Judaized West attempting to jinn up a war for Israel’s benefit very seriously, and should better clarify what the nature of the game being played here is with regards to Trump and his attempt to de-escalate the artificial tension (s) that has been conjured up by Judea, Inc and why no one should jump to hasty conclusions based upon superficial criteria, such as Trump’s semi-recent bombing of the airfield in Syria.

Britain would be “literally erased from the face of the earth” in a nuclear war, a Russian MP has warned.

Franz Klintsevich, a retired colonel, was responding to comments from Defence Secretary Michael Fallon, who said “in the most extreme circumstances, we have made it very clear that you can’t rule out the use of nuclear weapons as a first strike.”

Mr Klintsevich said if Britain were to launch a preemptive strike, then “not having the biggest territory, it will literally be erased from the face of the earth.”

Another translation, carried by the Russian news agency TASS, says Britain would be “razed to the ground” in a retaliatory strike.

Speaking to BBC Radio Four’s Today Programme, Sir Michael said Labour had left voters “completely unsure as to what would actually happen to our nuclear deterrent.”

He said Prime Minster Theresa May would be ready to use Trident as a “pre-emptive initial strike”.

“In the most extreme circumstances, we have made it very clear that you can’t rule out the use of nuclear weapons as a first strike,” he said.

Asked in what circumstances, he replied: “They are better not specified or described, which would only give comfort to our enemies and make the deterrent less credible.

“The whole point about the deterrent is that you have got to leave uncertainty in the mind of anyone who might be thinking of using weapons against this country.” 

Mr Klintsevich, who is deputy chairman of the upper house of the Russian parliament’s defence and security committee, called Sir Michael’s comments “disgusting” and said it “deserves a tough response”.

He added: “In the best case this statement should be taken as an element of psychological war — which looks particularly disgusting in such a context.

“Otherwise, it sounds really bad, because a reasonable question arises: Against whom is Great Britain going to preemptively use nuclear weapons?”

If Britain intended to use nuclear weapons against a non-nuclear state, he added, “then probably English people desperately want to share the laurels of the USA who threw nuclear bombs at defenceless [Japanese cities] Hiroshima and Nagasaki [in 1945].”

“But those times have gone for good, as has the era of the greatness of the British Empire.”

    “Does anyone know what brought that comment by Fallon forward?”

    Its to do with the snap election coming up in June and the labour leader suggested Trident renewal might not be in Labour’s election manifesto so its about Corbyn being a serious threat to the UK by weighing up the consequences of nuclear weapons IE “very dangerous chaos” if he (Jeremy Corbyn) becomes prime minister.

    The part left out of the article above is that Fallon said Theresa May would fire Britain’s nuclear weapons as a ‘first strike’ if necessary, even if BRITAIN ITSELF was not under nuclear attack.

    Russia (who else would be the target for Trident?) just making it clear that the UK would be toast for doing such a thing.

    So you see Jeremy Corbyn is a real danger.
