It may seem that the threat of a nuclear war would come from Russia and not the Korean peninsula. With North Korean leader Kim Jong Un apparently warm to the idea of denuclearization assuming certain conditions are assured by the United States and the rest of the free world, Russian President Vladimir Putin claims he would blow up the world if Russia is threatened.
Putin revealed he would not hesitate to launch nuclear powered missiles in retaliation if Russia was under attack.
“This is a reciprocal strike. If there is still this decision to destroy Russia then have the legal right to respond. This would be a global catastrophe for humanity but I, as a citizen of Russia and the head of the Russian state would like to ask you this: what do we need a world for if there is no Russian in it.”
Putin disclosed that Russia would begin work on its nefariously named weapon, “Satan 2” missile which reportedly has the capacity to carry 10 thermonuclear weapons. Experts believe a missile with this kind of power could destroy an entire country and wipe it off the face of the earth.
There are also reports Russia’s “Kanyon Doomsday Torpedo” could level the coastal areas with a radioactive tsunami that will bring 500 foot waves crashing to shore.
Russia has begun to upgrade facilities in the event of a nuclear war with the West. The Kremlin has been reported to be upgrading bomb shelters and resurrecting Soviet-era civil defense plans.
Meanwhile, one of the United States’ top generals in Europe said the U.S. does not have the resources to fight back Russia should nuclear war breakout.
Curtis Scaparrotti, head of the U.S. European Command and Supreme Allied Commander Europe for the NATO Western Military alliance believes both the U.S. and allied ground forces will be outmatched by Russia.
Scaparrotti agreed with White House Security Adviser, H.R. McMaster’s assessment that U.S. forces will be outranged and outgunned by Russia because the country has been able to improve and modernize its capabilities.
