Not only have US negotiations with Russia over Syria broken down and Russia has cancelled a major arms control agreement concerning plutonium, now we learn that Russia is taking serious steps to prepare its population to survive a nuclear war with the West.

The Independent:

The Russian government has launched a nationwide civil defence training exercise to ensure the country is properly prepared in the event of a nuclear, chemical and biological attack from the West.

Amid growing international tensions, particulary over Russia’s conduct in Syria, the Defence Ministry-run Zvezda TV network announced last week: “Schizophrenics from America are sharpening nuclear weapons for Moscow.”

Lasting three days, the exercise bing run by the Ministry for Civil Defence, Emergencies and Elimination of Consequences of Natural Disasters (EMERCOM) will involve 200,000 emergency personnel and the co-operation of 40 million civilians. …

“The drill will rehearse radiation, chemical and biological protection of the personnel and population during emergencies at crucial and potentially dangerous facilities.

“Fire safety, civil defence and human protection at social institutions and public buildings are also planned to be checked.

“Response units will deploy radiation, chemical and biological monitoring centers and sanitation posts at the emergency areas, while laboratory control networks are going to be put on standby.”

Relations between Russia and the West continue to deteriorate with Vladimir Putin suspending an agreement with the US over the disposal of surplus weapons-grade plutonium, BBC reports.

Read the whole thing.

Apart from all the racial healing, you have got to admire the Obama Administration’s reset of relations with Russia and its great strides in the direction of world peace. Maybe Sweden will give Barry a second Nobel Peace Prize before he leaves office.

Norway, not Sweden, Yalie. Per Alfred Nobel’s will, the recipient is selected by the Norwegian Nobel Committee, a five-member committee appointed by the Parliament of Norway.

Thanks. I’m getting old and vague on details.

But, wait, I looked it up:

https://www.nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/

“Between 1901 and 2015, the Nobel Prizes and the Prize in Economic Sciences were awarded 573 times to 900 people and organizations. The Nobel Prize is an international award administered by the Nobel Foundation in Stockholm, Sweden.”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nobel_Prize

“The Nobel Prize is a set of annual international awards bestowed in a number of categories by Swedish and Norwegian institutions in recognition of academic, cultural, and/or scientific advances.”

Both.

Dear JDZ,

Try looking up Noble PEACE Prize–PEACE PRIZE. You are falling into the fallacy of inclusion.

Alright, you win.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nobel_Peace_Prize

“The Nobel Peace Prize (Norwegian, Danish and Swedish: Nobels fredspris) is one of the five Nobel Prizes created by the Swedish industrialist, inventor, and armaments manufacturer Alfred Nobel, along with the prizes in Chemistry, Physics, Physiology or Medicine, and Literature. Since December 1901,[2] it has been awarded annually (with some exceptions) to those who have “done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses”.[3]

Per Alfred Nobel’s will, the recipient is selected by the Norwegian Nobel Committee, a five-member committee appointed by the Parliament of Norway. Since 1990, the prize is awarded on 10 December in Oslo City Hall each year. The prize was formerly awarded in the Atrium of the University of Oslo Faculty of Law (1947–89), the Norwegian Nobel Institute (1905–46), and the Parliament (1901–04).”
