Politicians and pundits on both sides of the aisle have accused Russia of interfering with our elections and our intelligence agencies. But the war Russia is waging against America is very different from anything you have heard in the press, as Russian-born U.S. intelligence expert Rebekah Koffler reveals.  

In her new book, Koffler details how Vladimir Putin is orchestrating a wide-ranging, multi-faceted campaign to retake his country's role as a super-power, and to defeat America in the process.  Koffler explains the Putin-ordered 5-point Master Plan to defeat America, which includes spies, satellite killers, bombers, lasers, undersea cable cutters, cyber trolls, nuclear missiles, assassinations, and special techniques that Russia uses to distort Americans' perceptions of reality.  Koffler also reveals how Moscow plans to turn our strengths--such as our open, democratic society, the technology that pervades every sphere of our lives, and our aversion to war casualties--into vulnerabilities.

Koffler explores the military components of Russia's strategy, including its powerful arsenal of conventional and nuclear weapons and the advanced new weaponry unveiled the day after the July, 2018 Trump-Putin Helsinki summit.  She details why Moscow views America's dependency on satellite technology for military operations as our country's "Achilles' heel," and alerts readers to the newly erected National Center for State Defense, a wartime structure. Finally, there is a discussion of why Moscow violated the U.S.-Russian Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF).The picture is clear, warns Koffler: Putin is mobilizing his country for the "inevitable" war.

Koffler reminds us it's imperative that the full extent of the Russian threat be revealed, both to those who are increasingly concerned, and those who are just beginning to feel uneasy about foreign interference in, and manipulation of, our daily lives. The "warning system," as Dan Coats, Director of National Intelligence, declared, is "blinking red."
