At least one harbinger of doom is now saying that when the Russians invade the United States, they will start World War 3 by breaching American sovereignty via Alaska, according to a former military official. In what reads like a World War 3 conspiracy theory, this scenario suggests that President Barack Obama has left the United States’ northernmost state militarily defenseless against an imminent Russian exploitative attack.
The Daily Star reported this week that a high-ranking former U.S. Navy official has claimed to have evidence that a Russian invasion of the United States is imminent and will begin in, of all places, the small village of Wasilla, Alaska. (For those who may have forgotten, Wasilla is the home of former Alaska governor, former Republican vice presidential nominee, and former Fox News contributor Sarah Palin.) Russian submarines will apparently secure the Alaskan coastline, exploiting the fact, according to the former Navy officer, that the area is virtually unprotected from hostile and aggressive invaders.
According to the official, who offered the information on condition of anonymity, Wasilla will become the jump-off for a more protracted invasion of North America. “Our feeling in the Navy was that Obama had turned Alaska into a defenseless area that will serve as a forward base of operations when World War III begins,” he said.
“We are the verge of being invaded from Alaska all the way down into Canada and eventually the Northwest.”
The same unnamed source told the Daily Star that there were Russians disguised as “highway road crews” working in Alaska already, preparing the way for a full-scale invasion force. The crews were in place to “disrupt communications and seize vital bridges” when war eventually arrives.
Okay that whole "disguised as highway road crews" is a dead giveaway that this whole thing is BS.
I mean do you have any idea how hard it is to get a job on a road crew here in Alaska?
As for coming through Wasilla, that "small village" as they call it is in the MIDDLE of the fucking state, so I am not at all sure how that would help them to "secure the Alaskan coastline."
Besides that invading Alaska is probably the LAST place the Russians would want to establish a beachhead for an invasion of the rest of America.
Trust me I have lived here my entire life, we are not exactly known for being easily subjugated.
And if they were actually going to start in Wasilla they might like to know that Alaska is not only bulging with weapons but that it a safe bet that about 75% of them are in the Mat-Su Valley where Wasilla is located, and that Wasilla is where we keep all of the anti-social nutjobs.
Personally, since I live in Anchorage, I think it is a GREAT idea for Russia to invade Wasilla,
I look forward to the next Fur Rendezvous where I imagine the Russian scalps and skins will be displayed alongside the traditional wolverine and fox pelts.
Besides if Russians were actually working on some long range plan to invade Alaska via Wasilla they would have to have a highly placed operative within the government helping them.
You know perhaps a former local politician who had connections to fringe political groups that were working to undermine one or both political parties.
Someone who constantly suggests that the country was on the wrong path and supports a candidate for national office who was causing incredible friction and angry clashes between its citizens, and who themselves had ties to Russian government officials.
Someone who might even have a child with a close friend of Russian descent.
