Video: Why Is Russia Building 5000 More Nuclear Bomb Shelters In Moscow By The End Of 2012?

Pakalert 31

Russia certainly seems to be in a hurry to prepare for something.  RT is reporting that 5,000 new nuclear bomb shelters will be constructed in the city of Moscow by the end of 2012.  Russian authorities believe that these new shelters are urgently needed because the current nuclear bomb shelters will only hold approximately half the population and are quite outdated.  In addition, there are apparently very few nuclear bomb shelters for those living outside the city center at this point.  Officials want virtually the entire population of Moscow to be able to reach a bomb shelter within a matter of minutes.  But in this era when the “Cold War” is supposed to be over, why are 5000 nuclear bomb shelters such an urgent necessity?

The following is an RT video news report about these new shelters….

But it isn’t just Russia that has been busy building bomb shelters.

A few years ago, Shanghai’s Civil Defense Office announced the completion of an absolutely massive underground shelter.  It was reported that the shelter covers an area of over 90,000 square meters and could accommodate up to 200,000 people at a time.

But that giant shelter is not even as big as the “Underground Great Wall” that was built during that 1960s and 1970s.  It is estimated that the “Underground Great Wall” contains 19 miles of tunnels and shelters and could hold up to 300,000 people.  It reportedly has a munitions warehouse, a hospital, a theater and even a library.

So what about the U.S. government?  Are they building any bomb shelters for us?

No.

Basically, Americans are sitting ducks.  Whether it is a rogue nation launching a nuke or a full-out nuclear war, Americans literally have nowhere to go.  In the event of a nuclear attack, most of us would be lucky to have enough time to duck and cover and say our prayers.

The sad truth is that the U.S. government considers the threat of nuclear war to be a thing of the past.

For decades, an overwhelming nuclear arsenal has been our primary protection against nuclear attack, but thanks to the last several presidents our strategic nuclear arsenal has been mostly dismantled.

Today, the United States has only 5,113 nuclear warheads in its stockpile, which represents an 84 percent decline since a peak of approximately 31,255 in 1967.

But that isn’t far enough for Barack Obama.  Currently, Obama is working on a treaty under which the United States and Russia would only be allowed a maximum of 1,550 deployed warheads.

So with nuclear weapons rapidly spreading throughout the world, and with the U.S. only having a small fraction of the nukes that it used to have, doesn’t that make a nuclear strike against the United States more likely?

Of course, but because the mainstream media tells Americans that we don’t have to worry about nuclear war anymore most of them don’t even think about it.

But Russia is obviously taking a different approach.  Building 5000 bomb shelters in one city alone is a massive undertaking.  Obviously they feel like building all of these shelters is important for one reason or another.

So are they just being paranoid or are they several moves ahead of us?

    Russian government gearing up for solar maximum event that NASA warned us of in 2006,

    predicted to come by May 2013. We could still see a solar storm of less magnitude before then but this coming 2013 storm is the worst case scenario. Funny how the Russian government wants to protect all of its citizens in Moscow but our government wants us to be ignorant and exposed.

    I see the day soon upon us when the skies over America will be blackened with Israeli warplanes, built in America of course, dropping dirty nukes on American cities and killing American yuppies…..the streets will be littered three layers deep with the dead and dying and the few still alive will be staring up at the skies with horror stricken eyes and faces and screaming, “Israel…we LOVE you…why are you doing this to us…please stop!!!!!!!

    That the Lord hath so hated
    This earth he created,
    He thereupon inflicted mankind…
    He then came to find
    He so hated mankind
    That to jewrot
    The twain he consigned —–Robt. John Spittler

    Even if America is thoroughly immersed in its perennial state of somnambulance, the population of Russia has sense enough to realize that America in collusion with Israel will be the perpetrators of WWIII and that one way or another it will engulf Russia and every other nation on the face of the earth…..the Russians are making themselves as ready as humanly possible for end times….America IS end times and is too lobotomized to realize it.

      Not all of we Americans are lobotomized…we are powerless. The status quo squashes us beneath their great capitalist boots. It is a good time to be Russian, me thinks!

    Look, if a nuclear war occurs, the US will be behind it one way or another. The American government has made enemies where no enemies were present before. To date it has riled Pakistan, China, North Korea, Russia, all nuclear powers or potential ones and too many other smaller countries to count. What do you expect may happen with all this build up of hatred? I can assure you it won’t be a big thank you!

    Why is Russia building bomb shelters? Because the United Snakes are on a rampage, bankrupt, the treasurey empty, and gas and oil running short as Chinese and Indian consuption goes crazy.

    Yassar, the unscrupulous Great Satan (NPT violator) sees the writing on the wall – the loss of its crown and the Arab Spring makes things dishartening as the US/Israel ‘genocide twins’ discover that there’s a new sherriff in town – and, ‘Oh-Mi-God’ he’s ‘Arab!’ The stage is set and the new actors are not from the US/EU or Israel -So, of course the Bass Terds’ are in a panic – which they should be.

    I put my yauns on China and/or repees on India and leave the Great Satan – running a scared 5th place in the coming decade – can take the hind end.

    After Qaddafi recovers from the latest assault from the EU oil thief colonists he will shut off their oil and gas and it will be interestng to see the blue bloods screwing each other for a tankfull of petrol, LOL!

    There is one HUGE fact you left out, the nukes of today are 100s with some even 1000s times more powerful than fat boy was.
    Just how many times would you like the US or others to be able to kill every living thing on the planet ?
    I think I’ve heard everything now ! Bloody incredible.

      well said, and so did Archie1954.
      1500 nukes in the hands of the usmil is 1499 too many, ditto russia, and anyone else.
      we have agwcrazies worried about Carbon..ffs when a threat of nuke rises again as the GFC another usa creation is sending the whole damn world into panic mode, ruining peoples lives, and throwing the gains of decades out the window.
      dragging the majority back into poverty isnt going to make it better.
      the whole rest of the world that usa seems to think they are in charge of, is actually pi**ed off and not so likely to keep playing their games much longer.
      crunch times coming.
      and btw usa does have some private and some govvy shelters , see Denver airport underground. but for the people?
      nothing, you dont count.
