WTF!!!!

Russian analyst urges nuclear attack on Yellowstone National Park and San Andreas fault line
March 31, 2015 - 12:36PM/Reporter Su-Lin Tan

A Russian geopolitical analyst says the best way to attack the United States is to detonate nuclear weapons to trigger a supervolcano at Yellowstone National Park or along the San Andreas fault line on California's coast.

The president of the Academy of Geopolitical Problems based in Moscow, Konstantin Sivkov said in an article for a Russian trade newspaper on Wednesday, VPK News, that Russia needed to increase its military weapons and strategies against the "West" which was "moving to the borders or Russia".

He has a conspiracy theory that NATO - a political and military alliance which counts the US, UK, Canada and many countries in western Europe as members - was amassing strength against Russia and the only way to combat that problem was to attack America's vulnerabilities to ensure a "complete destruction of the enemy".

"Geologists believe that the Yellowstone supervolcano could explode at any moment. There are signs of growing activity there. Therefore it suffices to push the relatively small, for example the impact of the munition megaton class to initiate an eruption. The consequences will be catastrophic for the United States - a country just disappears," he said.

"Another vulnerable area of ​​the United States from the geophysical point of view, is the San Andreas fault - 1300 kilometers between the Pacific and North American plates ... a detonation of a nuclear weapon there can trigger catastrophic events like a coast-scale tsunami which can completely destroy the infrastructure of the United States."

He said the Russian geography on the other hand would protect it from a tsunami or a volcano attack. Few people live on the coast in Russia and Siberia which rests on basalt would withstand similar attacks.

Mr Sivkov, who spoke at the 2013 Moscow Economic Forum, said by 2020 to 2025 Russia would have amassed "asymmetric weapons" in its arsenal for the attack.

"The situation for us today is comparably worse than half a century ago," he said.

"The weakened economic potential in Russia, the loss of the 'spiritual core of what was the communist idea', and the lack of large-scale community allies in Europe such as the Warsaw Pact, Russia simply cannot compete against the NATO and its allies."

In December last year, the vocal military strategist told Russian newspaper, Pravda.ru that there is a "developing standoff between Russia and the West" and the US's ultimate goal was to "destroy Russia".

Mr Sivkov accused American politicians of committing several crimes including causing the deaths of 1,200,000 people in Iraq. He believed the only way for the "American elite" to be held accountable was for its military forces to be destroyed.

"American politicians have committed a variety of crimes. Will anyone be held accountable for those crimes? What about the international law, the UN and other organisations? Are they doing anything?" he asked.

Mr Sivkov told Pravda that the idea of the US preparing for a serious war against Russia using cruise missiles was plausible given that it had already launched a thousand missiles in Yugoslavia and Iraq.

Besides, the Caldera we call Yellowstone may have increased activity, but it also has a large number of places to vent the pressure, maybe a normal volcanic eruption, but an irradiated park would be not worth going to. Even IF the nuke attack started the volcanic behavior of a "super volcano" the after effects would not be relegated to just America, it would have global impacts as the ash in the atmosphere would be the same effect of a Nuclear winter, and see the death of many crops and plants we rely upon still.

Any Tsunami created by dropping California into the Pacific would stop at the Sierra and Rocky Mountains ranges, thus only impacting the West coast of America at most, maybe British Columbia. The man's proposals and conspiracies have "Crazy" written all over them.

I think he fails to see the attacks would do much to our elites and politicos, it would if anything only harm the Proletariats as he is a old, cold war relic

Yeah Len he's as nutty as a barrel full of walnuts! Not going to happen. In the event of a nuke war the targets are the big cities and by the time Russia dropped a nuke on Yellowstone most of the Russian cities would be glowing in the dark.

The San Andreas Fault is a transform one (moving sidewards) not a slip one. So the west of Cali will ultimately become part of Alaska all things being equal.

Yes, and as a person who worked with and had to learn Nukes, The warheads, not the power plants, that came later in life, I find his proposal would merely be just another Nuke War which served little purpose

I have to agree with Tim. The only people crazy enough to attack America are its inhabitants.

Even then, blowing Yellowstone and the San Andreas fault aren't the most efficient methods...(we'll be generous and call it a geopolitical fail)...the only political gain would be the dissolution of the US and possibly Canada, any material gain would be buried under metres of ash and lava (not to mention plunging the rest of the world back into a mini Ice Age so add global famine into the mix), nuclear power plants would blow etc.

For an analyst, he's pretty crap really Laughing It's fairly common knowledge that American infrastructure (especially the power grid) is outdated and shaky at best. If that is the best idea he can come up with, he really needs a different line of work.
