Did Pentagon Recycle ‘Nitro Zeus’ To Take Down Venezuela’s Power Grid, Pushing World Closer To WW3?


by Stefan Stanford, All News Pipeline:

According to this 2016 story over at the NY Times, back in the early years of the presidency of Barack Obama, the US military developed an elaborate cyberattack plan to cripple the defenses of Iran by knocking out their communications system and taking down the nation’s power grid. And while the plan, code-named ‘Nitro Zeus, was eventually shelved after the Iranian nuclear agreement was reached, the plan which involved thousands of military intelligence personnel spending millions of dollars to place ‘electrical implants‘ into the Iranian computer network may have been a good ‘dry run‘ for what recently happened in Venezuela.

With even Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro blaming US cyber-attacks for the catastrophic ‘lights out‘ situation that Venezuela now finds itself in, and Pentagon and NATO military planners having long considered the month of March to be the ‘best month’ to go to war, we’ll take a look within this ANP story at ‘Nitro Zeus‘. We’ll also look over a new World War 3 simulation just conducted by RAND that should put an immediate end to any discussions of war against Russia that might now be being held by members of the US military or the ‘crazies‘ in Washington DC who insanely think such a war would go well for us. 

As Zero Hedge reported in this recent story, a new World War 3 simulation by globalist think tank RAND has found that in a global war between the US and Russia/China, the US “gets its ass handed to it” according to RAND analyst David Ochmanek who made sure not to mince his words. So we can officially surmise with RAND’s findings that anybody within the US military or government still pushing for war with Russia is a ‘globalist‘ who WANTS the complete destruction of America.

While mutually assured destruction (MAD) long stood in the way of a deadly World War 3 breaking out between the US and Russia, as Dr. Peter Vincent Pry had reported on ANP back on March 14th of 2018, “MAD is no longer mutual with Russia making huge gains in nuclear superiority over us during Barack Obama’s 8 years in office, thanks largely to his ‘NEW START‘ nuclear treaty.

And while this latest simulation by RAND shows how US forces experience absolutely devastating losses in one scenario after another, our military in this simulation is totally unable to thwart Russia or China from accomplishing their own objectives which is simply to annihilate Western forces. From this Zero Hedge story.:

In simulated World War III scenarios, the U.S. continues to lose against Russia and China, two top war planners warned last week. “In our games, when we fight Russia and China, blue gets its ass handed to it” RAND analyst David Ochmanek said Thursday.

“We lose a lot of people. We lose a lot of equipment. We usually fail to achieve our objective of preventing aggression by the adversary,” Ochmanek warned. 

In the next military conflict, which some believe may come as soon as the mid-2020s, all five battlefield domains: land, sea, air, space, and cyberspace, will be heavily contested, suggesting the U.S. could have a difficult time in achieving superiority as it has in prior conflicts.

The simulated war games showed, the “red” aggressor force often destroys U.S. F-35 Lightning II stealth fighters on the runway, sends several Naval fleets to the depths, destroys US military bases, and through electronic warfare, takes control of critical military communication systems. In short, a gruesome, if simulated, annihilation of some of the most modern of US forces.

“In every case I know of,” said Robert Work, a former deputy secretary of defense with years of wargaming experience, “the F-35 rules the sky when it’s in the sky, but it gets killed on the ground in large numbers.”
