Maybe this is what we need 'The consequences will be catastrophic for the United States': Top Russian analyst advises blowing up Yellowstone in paranoid editorial BY Jason Silverstein NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Neuromir.TV/via YouTube Konstantin Sivkov has previously spoken about expecting to see American society 'decay' and has elaborate plans for how that could happen. Well, here comes Cold War II. A top Russian political analyst claims his country needs to combat the "West," and he has a 007-worthy plan to do so: Detonate nuclear weapons at Yellowstone National Park to trigger a supervolcano. "The consequences will be catastrophic for the United States — a country just disappears," Konstantin Sivkov, president of the Academy of Geopolitical Problems in Moscow, wrote in the trade newspaper VPK News on Wednesday. His paranoid plot was translated and reported by the Sydney Morning Herald. Sivkov reportedly said he believes the multinational military alliance NATO is building up its forces against Russia, with America as the main aggressor. Russia's response, he said, should be "complete destruction of the enemy." He's evidently given a monumental amount of thought into how that should happen. "Geologists believe that the Yellowstone supervolcano could explode at any moment," Sivkov said, before claiming it would take "relatively small" effort to "initiate an eruption." Bertl123/Getty Images/iStockphoto A top Russian political analyst enthusiastically shared his desire to see Yellowstone National Park destroyed by nuclear weapons as a way to ward off perceived American aggression. A 2013 study found that Yellowstone's supervalcano has enough molten rock to span the earth's surface if it erupts. The bitter bureaucrat also names California's San Andreas fault line as "another vulnerable area" in America. "A detonation of a nuclear weapon there can trigger catastrophic events like a coast-scale tsunami, which can completely destroy the infrastructure of the United States," he said. He said the mass destruction would not only fend off alleged American antagonism toward Russia, but also make the "American elite" suffer for its country's military actions. The revenge-minded Russian has railed on this topic before, telling the Russian newspaper Pravda in December that "American society will decay someday." He also compared America's penal system to "Hitler's state machine," according to a translated interview.
