Satellites & Computers Not Enough: Return to Human Spy Networks

There-Was-A-Secret-Ruling-Against-The-NSA-For-Spying-On-Americans    Reports now indicate that United States spy and diplomatic agencies had some warning that Russia was going to invade Ukraine––but it was not enough.  How long will it take the U.S. to return to pre-1970 spy networks?

As Adam Entous, Julian E. Barnes and Siobban Gorman ‘In Crimea, Russia May Have Gotten a Jump on West by Evading U.S. Eavesdropping,’ indicate:  “Since the end of the Cold War, U.S. spy satellites and other intelligence-gathering assets have been focused less on Russia and more on counterterrorism, the Middle East and Asia, reflecting shifting U.S. priorities.”

Obviously, this nation must enlarge its intelligence networks, as well as its methodologies. For instance, in his long and well-planned attack, early on Russian President Putin put people on the ground in Crimea to influence public opinion.

Entous, et al explain:  “Human-rights activists, members of the Tatar community and other local contacts told the American team that new political groups were being formed in Crimea with a clear anti-Kiev agenda.”  Satellites and drones cannot rub shoulders with people and help to form their opinions.’s post, ‘US Steps Up Spying on Russia: Report,’ reveals:  “U.S. intelligence services and the military are scrambling to expand spy satellite coverage and communications-interception efforts across Russia amid heightened tensions over the Ukrainian crisis.”

That post further warns Russia knows enough about U.S. spy methods to avoid them: “US spy chiefs are worried that Russian leaders might be able to cloak their next move by shielding their communications from the U.S. spy services.”

To make matters worse, Washington Times claims in ‘The Putin Problem: U.S. Needs Russian Rockets for Spy Satellites’:  “Elon Musk’s private company SpaceX has completed the first of three missions required to qualify for carrying National Security Space payloads, but as of now the sole certified provider for such tasks belongs to a joint venture between Lockheed Martin Corp. and Boeing Co.—and Atlas V boosters need the Russian technology.”

The U.S. is too dependent on Space technology, and apparently it depends on Russia for that.  Yesterday we asked turbine_turmoil_maps-1-1024x768why couldn’t the U.S. spy systems predict Russia’s move in Ukraine.  That question still stands.  Is it that this country no longer wants authentic spy networks, but depends instead on invading computers or taking logistic photos from space?  In today’s ‘NATO Orders End to Cooperation with Russia,’ John-Thor Dahlburg and Vladimir Isachenkov set forth:

“NATO’s foreign ministers ordered an end to civilian and military cooperation with Russia on Tuesday and told their generals and admirals to quickly figure out ways to better protect alliance members that feel threatened by Vladimir Putin’s Kremlin.”  And not a moment too soon.  It was plainly unwise for Western Europe and the U.S. to have trusted Russia and Putin all these years.

If these nations––especially the U.S.––had knowledgeable Bible scholars advising them, they would have known that the Christian nonfiction book list places Russia as among the chief enemies of mankind. Now, Putin befriends Syria, but soon Syria’s anti-Christ will turn against Russia and it will fall.

Then Putin will know he is but the lesser evil: “Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time (1 John 2: 18).”
