Putin warns: Russia will target US with new weapons if it deploys missiles to Europe
With a little eye opener like the message from the Judo Guy, the wall doesn’t seem to be that important in the big scheme of things. If Putin drops the big one (which is doubtful, BUTT not out of the question) THE WALL issue would be very insignificant.
On Saturday joined the U.S. in pulling out of a critical 32-year-old nuclear arms control treaty.
The U.S. announced its withdrawal from the 1987 pact Friday, accusing Moscow of violating the ban on the use of short and medium missiles.
Trump: “We cannot be the only country in the world unilaterally bound by this treaty, or any other,” Trump said in a statement. “We will move forward with developing our own military response options and will work with NATO and our other allies and partners to deny Russia any military advantage from its unlawful conduct.”
The Trump administration has argued that Russia has not been complying with the pact since 2014 and that it puts the United States at a military disadvantage against China, which is not bound by the treaty.
Russian President Vladimir Putin, speaking during his state-of-the-nation address Wednesday, warned that Russia will aim new hypersonic missiles at the U.S. should it deploy new intermediate-range missiles in Europe.
Russia’s new Zircon missiles, which Putin claimed fly at nine times of the speed of sound and have a range of 620 miles, are part of its ongoing effort to upgrade its defensive capabilities against what it regards as an increasingly hostile U.S.
The announcement follows the U.S.’ recent withdrawal from a key arms control pact. During his address, Putin rejected the U.S.’ claim that its withdrawal from the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces treaty was prompted by Russian violations of the pact. He charged that the U.S. made false accusations against Russia to justify its decision to opt out of the pact.
Again and again and again; who is right and who is wrong?? How is bull-shitting and who is not?? One side claims foul, the other says, back at you.
The sad part of an astronomical disaster like this happening; we can be as right as there is night, BUTT be dead right at the end of the day.
When evaluating (common-sense factor) the worlds very fragile nuclear situation; I would hope that all parties concerned are smart and prudent enough to know; once one of them pushed the button, it will be all over for mankind as we know it today. Unfortunately, we can not ever be sure that one of the guys behind the buttons doesn’t flip out and do something crazy.
Being extremely sarcastic; if The Judo Guy drops the big one, it will solve all of the socio-democrats concerns about open boarders.
I have always maintained. If we all had a crystal ball, we might not want to look in it.
