    Sounds like Armageddon.


    So is Russia really ahead in regard to these weapons? Question

    Basically, what he is saying is that Russia is not developing a first strike capability... they are developing a last strike capability... so if you attack her, don't be surprised if you are destroyed too even if you deliver a first strike...

    Sounds perfectly reasonable to me.

    The above statement by Putin can possibly be a response to this:


    U.S. Government Considers a First Strike Against Russia

    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-nuclear-russia/u-s-would-destroy-banned-russian-warheads-if-necessary-nato-envoy-idUSKCN1MC1J6


    It is from the 2nd of October, 2018, so it is possible that Putin was responding to this.


    It is amazing that the U.S. government actually makes such public announcements, albeit they do accuse Russia of violating a treaty, so that might be a case of trying to create a legitimate excuse for such a first strike before it takes place.


    Or it might be a clever attempt to fool Russia into believing that this will be only a "very limited strike" but in reality it will be a full scale attack meant to obliterate Russia.

    And that is the point... you don't know it is a limited strike until it stops... and to be perfectly honest to destroy anything in Russian territory would require an enormous strike to take out the air defence capabilities so that the weapon that destroys the target can get through... which would be an act of war and an act of suicide.

    I believe the dumb bitch who claimed they would take it out in a preemptive strike has since retracted her assertion and said that there would be no attack on Russia and that she was just misunderstood... that is what you get when diplomats are just people who donated money to your party and get these jobs as perks without any skills or knowledge...

    it is in the article you posted:

    Hutchison later clarified in a tweet that she was not talking about a preemptive strike against Russia.

    Silly bitch communicating to the world via tweet... what twit would do that?
