One general was seen studying a diagram of the "devastating" torpedo system.
Launched by a submarine, it would create "wide areas of radioactive contamination", the document says.
The "oceanic multi-purpose Status-6 system" is designed to "destroy important economic installations of the enemy in coastal areas and cause guaranteed devastating damage to the country's territory by creating wide areas of radioactive contamination, rendering them unusable for military, economic or other activity for a long time", the document says.
"It's true some secret data got into the shot, therefore it was subsequently deleted," said Mr Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov.
"In future we will undoubtedly take preventive measures so this does not happen again."
Such things do not happen by accident. This leak was intentional. More:
Just before the torpedo diagram came into view in the state TV report, Mr Putin could be heard telling the generals that the US and its Nato allies were forging ahead with a global anti-missile defence system "unfortunately ignoring our concerns and our offers of co-operation".
He said the Western defence project was "an attempt to undermine the existing parity in strategic nuclear weapons and essentially to upset the whole system of global and regional stability".
"References to an Iranian or North Korean nuclear missile threat are just used to conceal the true plans - their real goal is to neutralise the strategic nuclear potential of other nuclear states... above all, of course, Russia," Mr Putin told the generals in Sochi, a Black Sea resort.
The recent "mystery missiles" in California and Miami are clearly linked to all of this. I am increasingly persuaded that these events were not tests but demonstrations.
The video embedded at the top shows a remarkable event that occurred in the skies over Michigan on September 25, 2014. More than one videographer uploaded images of this phenomenon -- which resembles at least one image taken of the California event. (Scroll down, watch some of the videos embedded into earlier posts, and you will see what I mean.)
I don't claim to know what is going on. I know that drawing attention to these events will prompt some people to accuse me of imitating Chicken Little. But my gut tells me that a very important change is taking place.
i agree. What do you think of the possibility that, to keep the global economy going into the toilet next year, the U.S. starts WWIII? This would immediately cease the ongoing "prosecution" of Big Oil and drive the demand and hence prices sky high. It would directly benefit the global banking sector that is so over-extended that Monopoly money is worth more than the scrip we're using.
This would also benefit all the big corporations involved in everything from homeland security to military contractors and all the ancillary services and suppliers, and it would drive the economy again (big time). It would probably cause a lot of people to voluntarily join the military.
Another off-shoot would be that it would take the minds of the masses off the devastating climate change that will run over humanity like a freight train in the next bunch of years.
Looks like you're on to something.

Speaking as someone whose job (for a few years in a former life) involved figuring out how to decide if WW III actually had broken out, I'd say pretty much nobody stands to gain much of anything from a two-hour long campaign of nuclear annihilation that (if we're lucky) sends those of us who survive back to the Bronze Age. That's my personal definition of WW III, and I don't think anyone has any interest in it. Honest-to-Cthulhu WW III would pretty much put an end to economic organizations more complex than a small village.
If, on the other hand, you're talking about the resumption of the low-level proxy conflict between the US and Russia that was the status quo for most of the last half of the Twentieth Century, then that's a different matter. Lots of people stand to gain from that (and not all of them in the US). Please remember that *Russia* is the largest arms exporter on the planet (yes, even bigger than the US see: http://www.businessinsider.com/arms-sales-by-the-us-and-russia-2014-8) and since the US economy is over 9 times the size of the Russian economy (see: http://data.worldbank.org/indicator/NY.GDP.MKTP.CD) arms exports are a much more significant factor in the Russian economy than they are in the US economy. I'd say the Russian MIC stands to benefit as much from the resumption of the Cold War as, say, Lockheed-Martin or Boeing.

If only Joseph installed a simple share button so his articles could more easily be shared.
Propertius, thanks for finding just about the only source that claims that Russia sells more arms than the US. Of course, a source controlled by convicted fraudster Henry Blodget might not be the most honest. I'm sure Russians everywhere will be thankful that US aggression has plumped up Russia's arms industry, as will the citizens of those nations trying to defend themselves from the US with Russian arms.
