Didn't GHW Bush ( 41 ) and Clinton give away our Alaskan islands to Russia, without Congressional approval ? Yes.
Alaskan Island Giveaway-- David Bresnahan
The Senate ratified the U.S.-U.S.S.R. Maritime Boundary Treaty in 1991, which was then signed by
President George [ Herbert ] Bush. The Alaska House and Senate were never consulted during the treaty's negotiations,
Think about this," said Olson. "If you had just one island with only one square mile and you drew a 200 mile circle around it, do you know that's 125,000 square miles of potential sea bottom for oil exploration?
"It's totally anti-public, anti-Congress, anti-state actions -- but unfortunately the State Department thinks it has the power to adopt this boundary line with the Russians without anybody's consent outside themselves," he said.
Alaska H.J.R. 27, ..gives away 8 Alaskan Islands
The United States-U.S.S.R. Maritime Boundary moved the line between Russia and Alaska in such a way that eight islands that were specified as part of Alaska when it was purchased from Russia would become part of Russia once again.
The State of Alaska was not included in the negotiations at the time of the agreement, or at any time since, complains Coghill.
The agreement transfers to Russia the islands of Wrangell, Herald, Bennett, Henrietta, and Jeannette Islands in the Arctic, and Copper Island, Sea Lion Rock, and Sea Otter Rock on the west end of the Aleutian chain.
The U.S. purchased Alaska from Russia in 1867 and the sale included all Aleutian Islands, including Copper, Sea Otter Rock, and Sea Lion Rock. In 1881, U.S. Capt. Calvin L. Hooper landed on Wrangell Island and claimed it for the U.S. Also in 1881, the U.S. Navy claimed the islands of Bennett, Jeannette, and Henrietta. The British held Herald Island, but they gave up that claim permitting the U.S. to take it.
On June 1, 1990, then-Secretary of State James Baker signed a secret executive agreement with Eduard Shevardnadze, the former U.S.S.R. foreign minister. It specified that even though the treaty had not been ratified, the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. agreed to abide by the terms of the treaty beginning June 15, 1990
Russia is asking to move the boundary line in such a way that an additional 40,000 square miles of ocean and seabed would belong to Russia.

American citizenship stripped for inhabitants of 8 Islands-- Stephan Archer
Ed : Double-speak : "Even though now recognizing Russian jurisdiction over the islands, the State Department had testified at the June 13, 1991, treaty hearing that the maritime boundary agreement "does not recognize Soviet sovereignty over these [five Arctic] islands
Ed : Military advantage:
Olson notes the area's strategic value as well.
Beneath the icy waters around the islands, submarine warfare has taken place in the past between the former Soviet Union and the United States. The ice is now one of the last places for submarines to hide. The islands could also be hosts to vital facilities tracking hostile government movements.
"Everybody knows that the shortest distance between the U.S. mainland and Asia is the polar route, giving easy access to aircraft and whatever else," Olson explained. "And the Asian mainland doesnt just consist of Russia. It includes China.
Russian Navy in Baltic Sea armed with nuclear warheads -- Threatens Poland
Under the Russian plans, nuclear warheads could be supplied to submarines, cruisers and fighter bombers of the Baltic fleet based in Kaliningrad, a Russian enclave between the European Union countries of Poland and Lithuania.
The warnings came 24 hours after Russia told Poland that it could face a nuclear strike for agreeing to let the United States station components of the missile defence shield on its soil.
The Russians have already indicated that they may point nuclear missiles at western Europe from bases in Kaliningrad and Belarus. They are also said to be thinking of reviving a military presence in Cuba.

Russia to supply Egypt with nuclear expertise
Russia has agreed to provide nuclear know-how and technical expertise to Egypt to help Cairo with plans to build civilian nuclear power stations to meet growing energy needs, Egyptian state media said on Tuesday. ... Moscow welcomed the planned resumption of Egypt's nuclear program.
Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak said last month Egypt would build several nuclear power stations, a year after his politician son Gamal floated the idea of a civilian nuclear program.
the first 1,000-megawatt reactor could be built at Dabaa on the Mediterranean in eight to 10 years if foreign investment was secured.
( Ed: and possibly much much sooner )
Russia, China and Kazakhstan have offered cooperation
The 79-year-old president [ Mubarak ] , in power since 1981, is widely believed to be preparing Gamal, a senior ruling party official, to succeed him. Both father and son deny this.
Russia's invincible missile SS 27
The missile (NATO reporting name SS-27), with a range of about 7,000 miles (11,000 kms), is said to be immune to any current and future U.S. ABM defense. It is capable of making evasive maneuvers to avoid a kill using terminal phase interceptors, and carries targeting countermeasures and decoys.
It is also shielded against radiation, electromagnetic pulse, nuclear blasts, and is designed to survive a hit from any form of laser technology
Russia to establish permanent presence on the seas
In an effort to expand its military presence in the international arena and reestablish a naval presence in the Middle East, Russia has dispatched a naval fleet to the region, including a guided missile cruiser, two anti submarine ships and 47 fighter planes. The fleet will dock at the Syrian port of Tartus where Russia maintains a technical base. At the same port, Iranian ships are also docked.
The Kremlin also decided to send a sortie of ships to the northeastern Atlantic.

Triumf - Growler air defense missile system stationed around Moscow
Russia will deploy the first air defense battalion equipped with new S-400 missile systems around Moscow on August 6, an Air Force spokesman said.
The S-400 Triumf (NATO codename SA-21 Growler) is a new air defense missile system developed by the Almaz Central Design Bureau as an upgrade of the S-300 family.
A regular S-400 battalion comprises at least eight launchers and 32 missiles and a mobile command post, according to various sources.
S-400 has been designed to intercept and destroy airborne targets at a distance of up to 400 kilometers (250 miles), or twice the range of the U.S. MIM-104 Patriot, and 2.5 times that of the S-300PMU-2.
The system is reportedly highly capable of destroying stealth aircraft, cruise missiles, and ballistic missiles with an effective range of up to 3,500 kilometers (2,200 miles), and a speed of up to 4.8 kilometers (3 miles) per second
Only Mobile Air defense
The general said the decision [to deploy only mobile systems] will allow Russia to increase the "survivability" of military personnel and weaponry and to quickly create large air defense formations in areas that need urgent protection from air strikes
The general said that the Air Force has recently been procuring S-400 Triumf, S-300 PMU2 Favorit (NATO codename SA-10 Grumble) and Pantsyr S1 mobile air defense systems, which are capable of destroying any aircraft, ballistic or cruise missiles, or guided bombs
Russia has also signed Pantsyr S1 sales contracts with the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Jordan, and Syria, and is currently in talks with Algeria on the deliveries of this highly sought-after weapons system.
Putin suspends arms control -- ( beginning 1-1- 2008 ..150 days )
" The suspension is not a full-scale withdrawal - but it means that Russia will no longer permit inspections or exchange data on its deployments
Russia's suspension of its application of the treaty is yet another sign of a worsening relationship between the US and Russia, says the BBC's diplomatic correspondent, Jonathan Marcus.
Russian Nuke-Submarine with Bulava missiles -- 5,000 mile range
Russia's new missile defies air-defense system
Fired from the north-eastern Arkhangelsk region, the RS-24 rocket hit its target on the Kamchatka Peninsula that juts into the Pacific Ocean 6000 kilometres away, the country's strategic missile forces said.
Unlike the Topol-M, the prototype RS-24 rocket is equipped with multiple independently targetable warheads to overwhelm defence systems, missile forces said.
Russian impervious missile : Bulava
Ivanov suggested the weapons would be based on the mobile version of the Russian Topol-M intercontinental ballistic missiles and on a new sea-based system, the Bulava, according to Interfax news agency.
"There is not and will not be any defense against these missiles," he said, according to Interfax.
The Topol-M can hit targets more than 6,000 miles away, and has been in silos since 1998, with about 40 on duty now, according to military officials. Military officials have said they plan to begin deploying the mobile version this year.
More on the Bulava missile ; ( placed on Borei class subs )
Part One :
" Putin took the unusual step of publicly hailing the June 28 test. it also gave him a power boost right before his most recent summit with U.S. President George W. Bush at Keenebunkport, Maine. "
the successful Bulava test gives Putin the assurance that his efforts to rebuild Russia's formidable strategic nuclear forces into a state-of-the-art arsenal for the coming decades are back on course.
The R-30 Bulava, or SS-NX-30, intercontinental ballistic missile is a version of the land-based Topol-M ICBM that is cut down in length in order to fit into a submarine missile firing tube.
12 MIRV-ed Bulkavas, the rest are designed to carry 16 each. That would give each one of them the capability to destroy up to 192 cities"
Ed: My math configures 188 cities total .... based on 12 + 176 = 188 cities. ( almost 4 main cities per state )
Part Two :
" The Bulava still has a long way to go before it has been operationally tested a sufficient number of times for it to be produced in significant numbers and deployed on the new Borey 955 class nuclear strike submarines that have been designed to carry it. The first of the class, the Yury Dolgoruky, is designed to carry 12 Bulavas with 12 Multiple Independently targeted re-entry vehicles ( Ed: 144 missiles ) , or MIRV-ed, warheads each. ....
The remaining 11 Boreys will carry as many as 16 Bulavas each. ( Ed: 176 missiles )
The final and most fundamental factor of the successful Bulava test, therefore, is that Russian power, and the awesome Russian strategic nuclear deterrent, is going to be around for a long time to come. As they wrestle with other threats and challenges around the world, U.S. policymakers should never forget that.
Mobile missile : 40 Topol M ... unstoppable ( over one-ton bomb )
The Russian Strategic Missile Force has received over 40 Topol silo-based ICBMs since 1997. However, unlike these earlier missiles, the mobile, hard-to-detect and interchangeable Topol-M ballistic missiles, which are immune to electromagnetic impulses, can be launched from a wide area
Moreover, the Topol-M can breach any existing anti-ballistic missile shield, including the highly expensive U.S. National Missile Defense system.
Russian Arctic exercise : Air-to-surface missiles --short to medium range
" Four Tu-22M3 strategic missile aircraft made over 20 sorties, firing air-to-surface missiles and successfully hitting their targets in the Barents Sea," said Colonel Alexander Drobyshevsky, an Air Force spokesman.
The Tu-22M3 (NATO codename Backfire-C) is a strategic aircraft carrying one to three Kh-22M (NATO codename Kitchen) air-to-surface missiles with a range of up to 500 km (over 300 miles)."
Russia will use pre-emptive strike
Russian Defence Minister Sergei Ivanov has said his country does not rule out
a pre-emptive military strike anywhere in the world if the national interest demands it
Russia's new national security doctrine, unveiled last year, allows the use of all possible force, including nuclear weapons, to oppose attacks, if all other methods fail.
Missile launched from Russian sub
Please see Russian File
The seaborne strategic missile system Bulava can carry at least 10 independently targetable nuclear warheads.
Its effective radius is at least 8,000 kilometers [ Ed : 5,000 miles ]
From Fairbanks ( Alaska ) to Seattle ( Washington State ) is 2300 miles.
SELAH ( think about this )
Ed : In other words, if Russia launches Bulava missiles from nearby Alaska, it will take the missiles 2,000 miles to reach the Continental U.S. and then they will still have a 3,000 mile range (the breadth of the U.S ). Since these subs are undetectable, that means that we Americans are at risk of a nuclear shower at any time, without warning.
Just like Jeremiah said, " destruction comes from the North ."
Jeremiah Chapters 50 and 51.
Revelation 8 : 1 " And when he had opened the seventh seal,
there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour" ( 30 minutes from launch to target ).
Bulava's undeterminable "Igla" warheads
The Topol M and Bulava ( SS NX 30 ) missiles employ a maneuvering warhead called the Igla. This warhead was first tested in February 2004 with an older version of Topol. The trajectory of Igla is not just difficult but, in fact, impossible to predict because the warhead has auxiliary engines that switch on and off randomly. The targeting system of the warhead keeps track of changes in the trajectory on account of these random engine firings and eventually guides the warhead toward its target.
The Igla will reportedly also use IR [ infrared ] counter measures and decoys to confuse any Exoatmospheric Kill Vehicles (Interceptors) that may target it during that phase. It may be noted that the interceptors planned to be deployed as part of the US GMD (Ground Based Midcourse Defense) are equipped with on-board discrimination to identify the true warhead from among decoys and associated objects.
Information on nuclear weapons
Russia test-fires mobile ICBM -- Christmas Day ... Dec. 25
Russian media reports have said the missile lifts off faster than its predecessors and maneuvers in a way that makes it more difficult to spot and intercept. It is also reportedly capable of blasting off even after a nuclear explosion close to its silo.
"The missile can penetrate all invented and even yet to be invented missile systems, including those equipped with space-based elements, with high probability," said Yuri Solomonov, who heads the Moscow Institute of Thermal Systems which designed and manufactured the missile.
The deployed Topol-Ms have been fitted with single
nuclear warheads, but officials have mentioned plans to equip
each missile with three
individually targeted warheads.
President Vladimir Putin has said Russia is developing new strategic nuclear weapons excelling anything which other nations have. Military analysts have said the new weapon would likely be based on the Topol-M.
Russia prepares "Satan-missile" -- the SS 18 ; RS 20
The first launch of the Satan ballistic missile directly from the area of its basing has been scheduled until the end of this year, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov told a meeting of government members with the President in the Kremlin.
On his part, Vladimir Putin told the Russian defense minister to use the Russian terminology of Russian ICBMs. "Let them call it Satan in the West," Vladimir Putin said.
The SS-18 Satan missile is the NATO's classification of Russia's RS-20 missile. http://en.rian.ru/rian/index.cfm?prd_id=160&msg_id=5065684&startrow=1&date=2004-11-09&do_alert=0

Most Destructive Nuclear Missile
The most powerful ICBM (intercontinental ballistic missile) is the former USSR's SS-18 Model 5,
officially called the RS-20.
SS 18 Model 5 " Voivode " ... 10 MIRV warheads apiece
also called Mod 4
The SS-18 Mod 4 is an extremely powerful strategic weapon. It carries Multiple Independent Reentry Vehicle (MIRV) warheads, each with a nuclear yield greater than that of many contemporary missiles. It had range such
that all major targets within the continental United States could be attacked.

Putin has SS-19 "unrivaled" missiles
"I am speaking here about the most menacing missiles, of which we have dozens, with hundreds of warheads," Putin told a gathering of top commanders and Kremlin officials at Defense Ministry headquarters. "Their capability to overcome any anti-missile defense is unrivaled."
He added that Russia should be ready to carry out pre-emptive strikes anywhere in the world. According to the Defense Ministry, the military should be prepared to fight two "conflicts of any type" simultaneously as well as carry out peacekeeping operations
Rumsfeld update on missile status --- WMD on all long-range missiles
All of the nations whose programs we examined that are developing long-range ballistic missiles have the option to arm these, as well as their shorter range systems, with biological or chemical weapons. These weapons can take the form of bomblets as well as a single, large warhead.
This vision was given to AA Allen on the 4th of July, 1954
The Destruction of America:
The main concern in this regard has to be the 736 intercontinental ballistic missiles and hundreds of submarine-launched missiles still operational in Russia and carrying some 6,000 aging nuclear warheads. The decline of Russia´s command and control network, with equipment that tends to have "short-circuits," is sending us a warning.
Russia transfers nuclear arms to Baltic
Kaliningrad is a Baltic Sea port located between Poland and Lithuania, and a major military base for Russian ground and naval forces, including the headquarters of the Baltic Fleet.
These nuclear weapons are too close to Europe; they will desperately seek a leader over the EU who can withstand this new military threat. A leader with deterrent force.
Putin's war rhetoric
"land-based missiles arched their way a third of the way around the planet to the warhead target range in the Pacific, and as the bombers followed their dreaded Arctic route to fire cruise missiles over the top of the earth, the reality of the massive exercise was clear: The threat of Cold War nuclear extermination is as real as ever.

Six nation agreement:
Russia + 5 sign military joint defense, security declaration
The defence ministers of Russia and Kazakhstan - Sergei Ivanov and Mukhtar Altynbaev - has inked on Friday an agreement on joint planning of the use of troops in the interest of the two countries' security ensurance. "It is a practical agreement, not just a declaration or empty words. This document will make it possible jointly, on the bilateral basis and within the framework of
the Collective Security Treaty Organisation /its members are ( 6 members )
Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kirghizia, Russia and Tajikistan/ to plan the use of all the obtaining forces for joint defence, security ensurance", stressed the Russian defence minister.
To him, the signed agreements will make possible
"joint work towards the development of the air defence
systems, air forces and navies of the two sides".
Russia, Belarus one coalition force
The creation of a single air defense force means that part of the two countries forces are becoming coalition forces, having single plans, a single budget and single leadership.
Russia supplies Belarus with missiles (s-300)
A S-300 surface-to-air missile system is regarded as the calling card of Russian air defense. It is designed to protect military units, strategic military targets and civilian targets from ballistic and cruise missiles, unmanned aircraft and air strikes. It can hit targets at a distance of 7-100km, at a height of 25-30km, and flying at a speed of 300 meters per second.
