Sometimes, the world just feels a bit “off”.
The last few weeks have had that distinct feeling for many Americans. The unending anxiety, and the unflappable feeling that “the big thing” is about to happen…whatever in the world that may be.
Maybe we’re just on edge. We do, after all, have a President whose opposition has turned violent and bigoted toward those with opposing political beliefs. This cold civil war also just happens to be coinciding with a New Cold War between the United States and Russia, with the latter surely eying up ways to interfere with our 2020 presidential election just 400-some days away.
And then there’s the simultaneous and bizarre behavior of some of the world’s most powerful people.
Just days ago, and within minutes of one another, both American Vice President Mike Pence and Russian President Vladimir Putin suddenly changed their plans from 1,000’s of miles away. Pence was planning to speak on the opioid crisis in New Hampshire when he was swiftly escorted back the White House. Putin canceled a public appearance to meet with security advisors nearly simultaneously.
As for Pence, the President has assured us that we will hear an explanation for the sudden switch in “a few weeks”, and intimated that there was in issue in New Hampshire that prevented Pence from touching down.
Putin, however, was likely meeting to discuss the secretive Russian submarine aboard which 14 sailors perished as the result of a fire. Concerns at the time were that the clandestine craft may have been a nuclear submarine, and that the fire may be a smokescreen, no pun intended, for a nuclear disaster. As of this writing, Norway has claimed that no spike in radiation has been detected from the area in which the submarine fire occurred.
But, given that we’re living a life rife with coincidence, it turns out that a Russian nuclear submarine is leaking radiation, albeit from an accident that occurred back in 1989.
Scientists have identified a radiation leak on the wreck of a Russian nuclear submarine that sank in Arctic waters in 1989.
The Soviet-era Komsomolets submarine sank off Norway’s Bear Island following a fire on board, which resulted in the loss of life of 42 of the 69 crewmen on board. Resting at a depth of 5,577 feet, the submarine’s nuclear reactor and two nuclear warheads are still on board.
Just how bad is it?
Scientists recently recorded radiation at the wreck site 100,000 times the normal level for the Norwegian Sea.
Authorities believe that the depth of the wreck will prevent these elevated levels of radiation from affecting seafood in the area for the time being, but that further monitoring of the site will be necessary for decades to come.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
