Russia Unhinged By Hal Lindsey

4 min read

Vladimir Putin longs for Russia to regain its former glory from the days of the Soviet Empire.  Russian military aircraft have again been pressing the boundaries of U.S. airspace and that of several U.S. allies around the world.  It was a Cold War tactic, so they’re doing it again.  Putin’s yearning for the good old days also explains why he keeps reminding the world of the size of his nuclear arsenal.  He wants his nation to again be treated like a superpower.

But unlike the days of Khrushchev or Brezhnev, this new Cold War contains a massive hot spot.  Putin is engaged in a full-blown war against America in cyberspace.  Fought with computers, it is an all-out war and it’s going on right now.

Hacked data from U.S. government servers are already paying off for the Russians and Chinese.  The Los Angeles Times reports, “Foreign spy services, especially in China and Russia, are aggressively aggregating and cross-indexing hacked U.S. computer databases — including security clearance applications, airline records and medical insurance forms — to identify U.S. intelligence officers and agents, U.S. officials said.”

The Soviet Union was once a major player in the Middle East, and Putin has Russia headed back there in a big way.  He has agreed to sell advanced S-300 surface-to-air missiles to Iran.  In other words, he’s giving the Iranians the ability to protect their nuclear sites with a near state-of-the-art anti-aircraft system.  U.S. officials speaking off the record, say that S–300 missiles have the ability to stop both American and Israeli aircraft.

Ynet News and other Israeli sources say that a Russian expeditionary force is now being deployed to Syria.  Ynet reports, “In the coming weeks thousands of Russian military personnel are set to touch down in Syria, including advisors, instructors, logistics personnel, technical personnel, members of the aerial protection division, and the pilots who will operate the aircraft.”
