“Conversion of Russia” Update:
Russia Deploys New Line of Nuclear Missiles
by Christopher A. Ferrara
On December 22, 2003, The Washington Times ran a story by AP reporter Vladimir Isachenkov on Russia’s recent deployment of “a fresh batch of its top-of-the-line strategic nuclear missiles…” The new deployment came “after a break caused by a funding shortage, and military officials presented ambitious plans Monday for building weapons even more potent.”
Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov says that the new Topol-M missiles are “a ‘21st-century weapon’ unrivaled in the world,” while Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov added that “This is the most advanced state-of-the-art missile in the world… Only such weapons can ensure and guarantee our sovereignty and security and make any attempts to put military pressure on Russia absolutely senseless.” Ivanov assured the press that the Russian military “will continue modernizing all components of the nation’s nuclear forces.”
The new missiles, which are able to hit targets more than 6,000 miles away, have “so far been deployed in silos,” the story notes. But an easy-to-hide mobile version, “mounted on a heavy off-road vehicle, is set to become operational next year,” according to Missile Forces chief, Col.-Gen. Nikolai Solovtsov.
Another discomforting fact about the new “top of the line” ICBMs: “the Topol-M lifts off faster than its predecessors and maneuvers in a way that makes it more difficult to spot and intercept. It is also capable of blasting off even after a nuclear explosion close to its silo…” Even more worrisome is that while “the deployed Topol-M’s have been fitted with single nuclear warheads… there are plans to equip each missile with three individually targeted warheads… The missile’s mobile version will carry from four to six warheads…”
Hence, at this very moment, Russia is planning to deploy easily concealed mobile ICBMs that can carry multiple warheads targeting American population centers. And that’s just for starters. “Next year, design work will start on a next-generation heavy nuclear missile, which will enter service after 2009… The new missile will be capable of carrying 10 nuclear warheads with a total weight of up to 4.4 tons, compared to Topol-M's combat payload of 1.32 tons…”
So here we have yet another sign of Russia’s “conversion” — the conversion of her nuclear arsenal to state-of-the-art, top-of-the-line nuclear annihilation. But how can this be, since according to the new “Sister Lucy” who was “interviewed” by Carlos Evaristo ten years ago, Russia has abandoned all such plans, and is now pursuing only programs of peace because the Pope “consecrated” Russia in 1984 and Russia is now “converting”? Obviously, the new “Sister Lucy” is about as reliable as a Russian signature on an arms control agreement.
On the other hand, those of us who still remember the real Message of Fatima and the Sister Lucy who conveyed it to us, cannot help but see in these Russian developments a linkage to that key phrase in the Message concerning what would happen if a true and authentic consecration of Russia were not carried out in timely fashion: “various nations will be annihilated.”
