A Russian geopolitical analyst says the best way to attack the United States would detonate nuclear weapons in Yellowstone Park, thus triggering the eruption of the supervolcano located in that area, or detonate nuclear devices along the line of the San Andreas fault, on the coast of California to cause major earthquakes.
The president of the Academy of Geopolitical Problems based in Moscow, said in an article for the Russian business newspaper News VPK, Russia needs to increase its weapons and improve their military strategies against "the West" because it is getting "closer the borders of Russia. "
According Sivkov, NATO is building up forces to attack Russia in the future and the only way to combat this problem is to attack the vulnerabilities of the US to guarantee a "total destruction of the enemy."
"Geologists believe the Yellowstone supervolcano could explode at any moment. There are signs of increased activity there. Therefore, suffice with a relatively small nuclear detonation, to start a rash. The consequences would be catastrophic for the United States: the whole country would disappear, "he said.
"Another vulnerable area of the United States from the geophysical point of view, is the San Andreas fault. The detonation of a nuclear weapon in the failure could trigger catastrophic events, such as a tsunami, which could completely destroy the infrastructure of the United States. "
Also, Sivkov said the geography of Russia, protect his country from tsunami or the effects of the volcanic eruption. Few people live on the coast of Russia and Siberia, resting on a geological basis of basalt, could withstand such attacks.
Sivkov, speaking at the World Economic Forum in Moscow 2013, said that in 2020-2025, Russia would have "asymmetrical weapons" in your arsenal to attack.
'The situation for us, now, is comparatively worse than half a century ago,' he said.
'The economic potential weakened Russia, the loss of 'spiritual core' of what was the communist idea ', and the lack of large-scale allies in Europe that provided the Warsaw Pact, make Russia currently can not compete with NATO and its allies'
In December last year, this same military strategist said in the Russian newspaper, that "we are developing a confrontation between Russia and the West," and that the ultimate goal of the US is to 'destroy Russia'.
Sivkov US politicians accused of committing several offenses including causing the death of 1.2 million people in Iraq. According Sivkov, the only way that the "American elite" accountable for its crimes, is destroying its military forces.
"US politicians have committed various crimes. Are any of them accountable for these crimes? What about international law, the UN and other organizations? Are you doing something? "He asked.
Sivkov stated in Pravda that the idea that the US It is being prepared for a full-scale war against Russia using cruise missiles, is plausible, given that the US had launched a thousand missiles in Yugoslavia and Iraq.
