Russian state TV is telling viewers to stockpile food in preparation for war

Russian state TV told citizens Tuesday to stockpile food and water as the threat of nuclear war with the U.S. intensified over Syria.

Standing in front of a mushroom cloud, a presenter on state-run broadcaster Vesti 24 warned viewers to stock up on “fewer sweets and more water.” 

The presenter listed off a number of food items that citizens should buy ahead of a possible war with Trump, including rice, oatmeal and sugar “for those who succumb to panic and decide to spend all their savings.”...........continues in link

It's possible that pulling back from the brink of nuclear war could be considered "Peace and Security."

...or stopping a nuclear war after it's started. It appears the nations have the ability to have a limited nuclear war without it becoming a holocaust..

Nagasaki and Hiroshima proved that Jehovah wont stop nuclear weapons from being used, He has promised that mankind wont destroy the entire planet, but that doesn't mean parts of it wont be nuked...

 

God will not allow humans to ruin the earth completely by pollution, warfare, or any other means

This is true. Jehovah hasn't promised that no land or area will ever be nuked. It can happen.

 

On the other hand, IMO a nuclear war directly between the US and Russia cannot happen because that would mean the total annihilation. One thing is blowing up a Syrian city in a proxy war, a different thing is sending the missiles to Moscow and Washington. Mutual Destruction Assured.

We’ll have to wait and see how great the coming tribulation will be. It will be hard enough wherever you live, no doubt.

..or California gets nuked and the war is stopped before it escalates and everyone cries 'Peace and Security and pass the rest of the almonds'..:D

Actually I think it's Mutually Assured Destruction. That's why they call it MAD! (The world is getting more and more like that.)

Means the same...I think Carlos is also translating it in, from his own language..:)

Interesting read on the subject:

 

In the event of a rapidly escalating conflict with the Russians, should the United States conduct a “limited” nuclear strike to coerce the enemy to back down? Or, in Cold War nukespeak, should the United States “escalate to deescalate” the situation?

Believe it or not, that is a real question that is being debated in the Pentagon today.

That article is nearly 2 years old, I wonder if Trump has continued that conversation...

The Art of War can be a very absurd affair. They could negotiate on restrictions in terms of the use of nuclear material before engaging each other, limiting the maximum megatons payload or tactical nuclear warheads without the use of ICBMs. I don't think anybody is interested in overkill.

 

In any case, a response to a conventional weapons attack is usually met by a conventional weapons attack. The first party to employ tactical nukes will be retaliated by tactical nuke launches. However, a single ICBM launch would inevitably lead to an overkill scenario, in my opinion.

 

Then again, when the Bible speaks of a "pushing", maybe there's a reason it doesn't speak of a "brawl" or "punching" or "war" or "fight". Sort of like when two guys on the football pitch engage in a "push and shove" fight.
