Soviet operations during the height of the cold war took many forms, from infiltration of our education system to intervention in public policies and government. The Soviets had agents working in pretty much every nook and cranny of the United States engaging in all sorts of operations designed to destabilize the United States in one way or another.
The recent arrest of a Russian spy ring operating in the United States suggest that the Soviet goal of bringing American capitalism to its knees remains the ultimate goal. Though the “spies” weren’t involved in the transfer of military secrets or preparing contingency plans in the event the U.S. and Russia go to war, the fact that they had close relationships to US government officials, lobbyists and corporate leaders indicates that Russian operatives continue to work towards the goals set forth during the cold war.
In a recent article, J.R. Nyquist suggests an alternate and plausible theory about the events of September 11th, 2001 in which he says that Al Queda’s number two man, Ayman al-Zawahri, was at one-time a KGB, and now Russian, agent operating under the instruction of the Kremlin. One of the key sources of this information? None other than Alexander Litvinenko, the former KGB agent who was poisoned by plutonium in London in 2007.
The purpose of Russia’s indirect involvement was to destabilize the U.S. economy and create unrest within the country as a whole. Though the idea sounds far-fetched, who could argue that this is exactly the result of September 11?
Russia maintains a strategic interest in seeing the United States’ economy, society and capitalistic system collapse. And if the plans of those who mean to do the United States harm come to fruition, and the U.S. eventually enters a global war for economic and/or political reasons, it is believed that the Russians, going back to the KGB during the cold war, have already taken steps to engage the U.S. militarily.
A September 9, 2010 report from Georgia’s Savannah Morning News reports that three men of Russian origin were arrested near a Georgia Power’s natural gas-based electrical power production plant. What was odd about the arrest is that it occurred on a road pretty much in the middle of nowhere at 1 a.m., in direct proximity to the plant. The Russians, whose U.S. visas expire soon, were arrested with a machete, shovel, wire cutters and ski masks.
According to JR Nyquist, this suggest foul play, and potentially, intelligence operations reminiscent of old Soviet special operations:
The job of Soviet spetsnaz (special forces), who train in the United States under the guise of “tourists,” is to infiltrate the U.S. prior to a nuclear war and take out key targets. These would include power plants, city water supplies, government leaders, etc. They are also tasked with burying nuclear weapons on American soil in advance of a war. If you look at Old Augusta Road on a map, it is located about two miles east of the McIntosh Combined Cycle Plant in a rural wooded area. So let us imagine this situation: three young male tourists from the â€œformerâ€ Soviet Union, of military age, driving a Nissan Pathfinder at 1 a.m. on a Sunday morning with ski masks and black silk stockings, a shovel, wire cutters and a machete. Their destination is not a nightclub or bar. They are driving to “the end of the road.” From their tools one may expect they will be cutting their way through brush, digging a hole, and cutting wires. One more thing: Old Augusta Road has power lines running along its length. In the following passage, read what GRU Col. Stanislav Lunev says about Russian nuclear devices maintained on U.S. soil:
Setting up one of these devices is complicated. The bombs need a small amount of power to keep them safely in storage. For example, the GRU specialist might have to run a very small wire to an electrical source, such as a power wire, and then attach it to the weapon. The wires can be run as far as one hundred yards or more from the weapon. The wires are small enough that they would easily break if someone tampered with them or tried to follow them to their source. In case there is a loss of power, there is a battery. (Through the Eyes of the Enemy, p. 26)
According to Lunev, GRU operatives have been sent to find hiding places for Russian nuclear weapons on American soil. One of these weapons, the RA-115 portable nuclear weapon, is intended for use against American leaders and other targets of strategic importance at the outset of a war. As Lunev explained, â€œit is surprisingly easy to smuggle nuclear weapons into the U.S., either across the Mexican border or using a small transport missile that can slip by undetected when launched from a Russian airplane.â€

According to reports, the Russians were detained and subsequently released. Like the 9/11 terrorists, these individuals possessed Visas and were legally in the United States. And while we can only speculate about what they were doing near a major power plant in the middle of the night, the fact that this was not generally reported in the national media or further investigated by local or federal law enforcement is most interesting and alarming.
