Countdown To Nukesville


So I keep reading and hearing about Russia preparations for nuclear confrontation with the West and the overall risk rising greatly:

– Investing in new advanced nuclear weapons, such as stealth nukes that can destroy an area the size of Texas or France

– Adding hundreds of new warheads

– Moving nukes to the European doorstep of Poland and Lithuania

– Flying Russian bombers within 40 miles of California coast

– Pulling out of non-proliferation agreements, including producing new intermediate range nuclear cruise missiles 

– Violating security pacts to destroy plutonium stockpiles

– Skipping the nuclear security summit

– Conducting massive civil defense drills

– Threatening asymmetrical and painful actions against the West, including first strike

– Building new bases in Ukraine, Syria, and now eyeing Cuba and Vietnam

– Building dozens of new underground bunkers

– Entering a new arms race with the U.S. 

Well perhaps this is all just saber-rattling bluster and party-rallying political rhetoric.

The real question is if this is all talk, then why all the costly actions being made?

Self defense experts always say never pull out a weapon unless you seriously intend to use it, so are Russia’s intentions to simply counter the West or is it going to go way beyond that. 😉
