World War 3: Russia Could Turn ‘United States Into Radioactive Ash,’ Says State TV

world war three nuked city

World War 3 is still on the minds of many despite the situation between Russia and Ukraine not coming to blows. Now a Kremlin-backed journalist has stated that Russia could turn the “United States into radioactive ash.”

In a related report by The Inquisitr, one of Russia’s nuclear weapons was fired as a show of force just as Vladimir Putin blamed President Obama and America for causing the entire situation by interfering in Ukraine. Although a war ultimatum by the Russian Black Sea fleet commander never caused a crisis the Russians did sink a ship in order to block the Ukrainian navy from escaping.

Former Ukrainian president Leonid Kravchuk was the first to warn that Russia may push his country into starting World War 3:

“They have gone beyond their base and occupied Crimea – it is conquered territory. Russia violated the Budapest Memorandum. Ukraine has every reason to go to international arbitration. I call on the Russian authorities to stop. Between our peoples should not be war. Does Russia not understand that this is the beginning of World War 3?”

Even though the overwhelming majority of voters in Crimea say they want to be part of Russia the rest of Ukraine may not want that to happen, and some are already threatening war. The secession is also a difficult task to pull off since the Crimean peninsula receives its electricity and other resources via the rest of Ukraine. So some say Ukraine’s new government may resist the referendum, and already some officials in Kiev say the 95 percent vote only came about because of threats by the Russian military.

Ever since Crimea decided it wanted to be part of Russia the official propaganda against the United States has also increased. Dmitry Kiselyov is a TV presenter who was specifically assigned as the head of a new Russian state news agency by President Vladimir Putin. In response to President Obama threatening sanctions against Russia over Crimea seceding from Ukraine, the Kremlin-backed journalist hinted at World War 3:

“Russia is the only country in the world that is realistically capable of turning the United States into radioactive ash.”

Do you think Russia would really start World War 3 with the United States over Ukraine or do you think it’s just political posturing?

    Let's remember that the secession vote was from Crimea, even though Russia forced its way in there to facilitate it.
    But, it's what Russia does next that matters.
    If it's smart, it would do nothing — and for a long time.
    And if we're smart, we should take no drastic action just yet — though we should continue to get ready for anything.
    The days ahead should give us all a chance to absorb what went on, and to figure out the best course to take.
    No direction is obvious; and everybody's been losing thus far — especially Russia.

    CIA-RAW keep deleting the following paragraph, posted as a comment, from Indian and Pakistani media putting Pakistan, Russia and India in grave danger as the March 12 ’14 explosions in New York demonstrate:-

    The deaths of Rajiv and Indira did not matter, only the crimes against Satish Chandra matter. Both participated in the CIA’s crimes against me and both were killed by CIA-RAW because of my influence on them. I was the target in killing them; they themselves did not matter. Nehru was a lifelong British agent, Indira and Rajiv worked for the CIA and so do all Indian politicians and filthy criminals of the media, deserving to be machine-gunned and bulldozed into trenches, or the top dozen or so stories in the Indian media on any given day will be about Satish Chandra. To avoid being killed by CIA-RAW, Rajiv’s son now (on Feb 26 ‘14) made an incredibly stupid and treasonous statement “What superpower? I will rather make a woman safe in a bus” to show to CIA-RAW that he is NOT under my influence and will not entertain any thought of making India a superpower and will keep India poor, weak and enslaved. Narendra Modi should be whipped and hanged for giving a bouquet of roses to an American diplomat in exchange for a strip search and cavity search of an Indian diplomat. After my reference to Advani as Home Minister being forced, with the threat of being prosecuted for Babri Masjid demolition, to visit CIA headquarters and make the Home Ministry participate in the CIA’s crimes against me, CIA-RAW threatened Modi with prosecution for the killing of Muslims in 2002 and so today (Feb 27 ‘14) “Modi signals shift in favour of big retail”, that is Walmart, etc., reversing the BJP’s stand — while acknowledging this will harm him politically — and urging Indians to embrace foreign ownership and control of India and other BJP politicians have joined in this treasonous deal with CIA-RAW as Jaitley‘s statement today (Feb 27 ‘14) that Modi “ has been able to overcome a sustained campaign against him over the 2002 Gujarat riots“ shows; CIA-RAW dictates — with the threat of killing in the case of Rajiv’s son and threat of prosecution in the case of Modi — what Indian politicians do and say, not India’s or the politicians’ own interests. P. Chidambaram should be whipped and hanged for speaking positively about Harvard University where the world’s greatest scientist and greatest Indian of all time was publicly tortured for being an Indian. The Italian woman and son should be whipped and hanged for participating in crimes against him with the help of the CIA’s 24-hour satellite surveillance of him for the past 37 years. Arvind Kejriwal and Mamata Banerjee should be whipped and hanged for associating with CIA-RAW agent Hazare, a follower of M. K. Gandhi who was a lifelong British agent and a homosexual who wrote to his white master “How completely you have taken possession of my body; it is slavery with a vengeance”. You do not shake hands with any representative of a country whose population will be made to eat one another till no one remains alive. Filthy niggers Manmohan Singh, P. Chidambaram and Raghuram Rajan made India a beggar and slave at the G-20 urging “advanced nations, like the US, to take heed of countries vulnerable to the stimulus withdrawal” and “advanced nations must recognise the impact of their monetary policy decisions on other economies and "be prepared to act if things get out of kilter" “. Why? Because “The reduction in stimulus, known as tapering, may affect capital flows to emerging markets and impact their currencies”. Why do you want to give ownership and control of India to foreign enemies when India has all the investment capital it wants by simply printing the money which is what the U.S. is doing stealing my proposal about money — see ‘How India’s Economy Can Grow 30% Per Year or More’ : HowIndiasEconomyCanGrowDOTblogspotDOTcom ? These filthy niggers Manmohan Singh and Raghuram Rajan must also be whipped and hanged along with filthy niggers Amartya Sen, Subramanian Swamy — who were both brought to Harvard and one of them given a Nobel prize expressly to provide cover for the crimes against me — and anyone else in public life you can think of. It is not too late to whip and hang filthy niggers Vajpayee and George Fernandes both of whom have been faking illness and an inability to speak to avoid answering questions about their participation in the CIA’s crimes against me. Nor is it too late to whip and hang filthy nigger Ram Jethmalani, who was also brought to Harvard to provide cover for crimes against me and rewarded with a half a million dollar per year law practice and filthy nigger L. K Advani who, while Home Minister, was brought, under pain of being prosecuted for the Babri Masjid demolition, to C.I.A. Headquarters to make India’s Home Ministry a participant in the C.I.A.’s crimes against me. Filthy nigger Kejriwal wants to provide a few services at lower rates but my proposal about money shows how to provide all goods and services free of charge to everyone. Filthy nigger M. Karunanidhi should be whipped and hanged; he was having Indian currency printed in China with the help of the Reserve Bank of India chief to provide some freebies to the people of Tamil Nadu as I described in my press releases but kept the crimes against me covered up otherwise everything could be provided free of charge to everyone in India. Filthy nigger Jayalalitha should be whipped and hanged for saying she has a vision for India but keeping quiet about the crimes against me because of which India will remain poor, weak and enslaved despite her vision. The filthy niggers that are India’s Supreme Court judges should be whipped and hanged for participating in CIA-RAW’s crimes against me and India by claiming to have lost the papers of a lawsuit I filed after duly acknowledging it as a front page lead report in New York’s News India-Times described two decades ago. I have described RAW’s trafficking of Indian children to Israel to be used as food — RAWsTraffickingOfIndianChildrenDOTblogspotDOTcom — and said that “The Jews' fondness for human flesh is far easier sated on Indians than on those around them. Thousands of missing children from India end up in Israeli kitchens and it costs them less than goat meat … When the Congress Party president and her son spent a number of days in Switzerland recently [in 2011] taking care of their black money there, they were told in no uncertain terms by the Jewish bankers that their ability to keep their black money hidden depended on the continuation of the trafficking of Indians for food. Both the Congress Party president and her son had to partake of such food with their bankers to seal the agreement”. I have also described the torture and killing of the children so their skins can be made into shoes and handbags. The above state of affairs cannot be changed except by India’s nuclear forces simultaneously destroying Washington, New York, RAW headquarters, South Block and North Block which they must do without delay, with a warning that additional U.S. cities will be destroyed, with nuclear warheads already emplaced in them, if there is any retaliation or sign of retaliation. It is important for Pakistan’s media to inform the world about this so no one will think the nuclear explosions in New Delhi were caused by Pakistan and for Russian media to inform the world about this so no one will think the nuclear explosions in Washington and New York were caused by Russia. Regardless of what Pakistan and Russia do, India’s nuclear forces are putting India in grave danger and committing treason by not obeying Satish Chandra and triggering the warheads if the March 12 ’14 explosions in New York were not their own fizzles.

    Russia certainly could turn the US into a wasteland but don't you think that Russia could be done the same blow. We must understand it would be the end of the world as we know it if that ever happened. Lets stop this stupid threat tit for tat. I am so tired of these politicians.

    Hey Russia! you do not have enough nukes to take out America! sure you can hit the hippies and anti war winnies on the coast, (assuming that our missile net lets any through) but you still have all the rednecks and southern boys (who you should really fear) left over. Oh, and if you decide to target the Midwest instead, there are not enough nukes to level all of the vast area. Oh yea, and we still have a navy that is building sci fi weapons. Wake UP Putin! surrender while we still don't want your head on a platter!

    Considering our feckless President, and the sad shape of our missile forces, the Russians could very well think they have nothing to lose.

    This is how word wars begin. We start by asserting who has what capabilities and who has what powers. Why would we even want to begin this discussion, when it only leads to more "us vs. them" commentary? How about we, instead of focusing on theoretical apocalypses, talk about what steps we can take towards resolving the issues. Why don't we, instead, ask ourselves this question: who wants WWIII? Personally, I like to think about a world where we all find reasons to do be cool with each other. But that's just me. And I think another World War would imply that we've learned nothing about the devastation caused by the first two.

  11. Michael Kinney

    Western media keeps telling us that Russia "invaded" Crimea with 26000 troops. Russia has a very large military base in Crimea and is allowed by treaty to keep that many troops there so Russia didn't force itself on Crimea. The people in Crimea and many cities in Eastern Ukraine are terrified that a large section on this new government is made up of Fascist Nazis. America ran well over 30 programs with the sole purpose of disrupting the old Ukrainian government. A small section of the population rose up and took over by force. None were elected. Now the most powerful force in this new government is a pack of Nazis. Oops! To late now. Obama brought the little Nazi to the White House and kissed is butt and wined and dined him for the benefit of our state media. Shameful! Then our old war horse, John McCain who really has a boner against anything Russian has made trips over there to stir up more trouble and show our "Support" for his Nazi buddies. Has our leadership gone insane?!? We have no business over there Let them sort out their own issues/problems! No more stinking wars!

  12. Chris Brooks

    Let's look at the history of Crimea.
    Crimea was originally part of Russia (thus the heavy Russian decedents in the area) and was giving to Ukraine as a "gift" I believe by Kruschev. The conditions of this gift was that Crimea was to be under Ukraine, but would be allowed to create it's own laws and elect it's own separate government body. In essence, it was a state within a state set up like the U.S.S.R at the time. The news media is leaving out this history. I'm not supporting either way but everybody needs to step back and see all points of view and not just the propaganda from either side.

  13. Shawn Vegas

    I love the media, really i do. All because that nut job said that, it has nothing to do with world war 3. He's the only person talking like that, 90% of everyone else in the world don't care about what he said. People trying to live, work and enjoy life. I wish the media would stop making things more than what it seems. There will never be a world war 3, period.

  14. Chris Brooks

    Also, Russia has strategic military ports in the Crimea giving them access to the Black Sea. With the new anti-Russian Ukrainian government now in power, this was seen as a threat. In my opinion, it would have gotten ugly in Crimea if the Russian forces didn't move in. There was a good possibility the new government would have told the Russians to vacate those ports, which in turn may have caused civil war with the roughly 59% of the Russian population that lives there and a all out war with Russia protecting those native Russians in Crimea. There would be conflict no matter what was done.

    This racial elected president has now done it all for us, now it's time to tax us higher to support his war. Keep out of the affairs of other countries! If they wanna conquer, let them! it's not going to effect the US at all! recent posts on this chain of events has shown all of the countries the US has invaided over the last decade but as soon as someone else does BAM our joke leaders act to make themselves look good. mock my words this will not end well if the countries go to war.

    Its funny how a country by the people and for the people does not support a decision made by the people of another country. IF and only IF, the people of Crimea really want to be part of Russia, why should the United states stop them?

    And the U.S could also change the weather in Russia to read, "Today's forecast will be hot, a high around 3000 degrees F" as everything including it's beaches suddenly are turned into radio active green glass cooling off. There would be no living people around unless they were in caves, and if they were they wouldn't live much longer. SO WHAT? It's called saber rattling. It's like someone saying, "I could blow a hole in you with this 12 gauge shot gun" and the other person is holding a similar gun. So what is the difference? The difference is that Russia is a more backwards country who is only showing the ape like qualities of it's leaders. This is only one of many problem the U.S. faces each day in trying help abide by rules that were set down ages ago intended to keep peace. But other leaders seem to feel free to break rules, break promises in order to bully others while breaking even more rules. And yet Putin's, the POS he really is, blame shifting is laughable. Let's not forget this is the guy who had someone poisoned with radio active material a few years back just for having an opinion. Again, the ape people are trying to take over!

  23. Chuck Yeager

    1- No a Russian mobster acting like a president and stealing from the people was disposed. He asked the bitch putin to help keep him in power.
    1a- that is just waltzing in because the people threw out the mobster
    2- see 1a: the people did not want this, but, yes, they do want to be a free nation. Not one that takes orders from Russia
    3- Russia is in fact still communist — it just has a slightly different face. I hope that you are bright enough to see that, however, I doubt it!
    4- Russia is the problem. But again, you are not bright enough to see that.
    5- no one wants war, but the idiots in control of foreign policy in DC are just in over their heads. That has been obvious for some time — like 5yrs, 2 mos.

  24. Ben Berry Balthazar

    Did you say any of this when the Bush's were in office? They were worse than this? Maybe it's cause you just hate the fact that a black man is President. Just come out and say it and stop being a coward.

  25. Elijah Rickert

    I think we need to attack now. If Russia takes control of Ukraine, they'll have control of its resources. Witch we don't want, because if Russia keeps getting more resources that will make them more powerful, then if they decide to attack another country, or us. We will not only be fighting Russia, but Russia with the power of another country just like hitler did.

  26. Chuck Yeager

    Chris Brooks: your view is likely not accurate. Just my view, but Ukraine would not have thrown out the Russians. They would have continued to honor their treaty and left the port intact. Problem is "facist" Russia/Putin wanted the cake too.

    Realistically, we are the only country that can reduce Russia to ash within 30 minutes after they launch their nukes? We go back to Mutually Assured Destruction. Nobody will do "nothing." They all value their hides too much!

    Well, if Russia lobs a nuke our way, we'll do the same. Over and over it continues until we're out of nukes. They wouldn't what was left and neither would we. The war would last an hour, so don't get too upset, Don. We won't have time to put our drawers on.

    Like most you have no idea what foreign policy is. The Russian troops have not right to go into the countryside, mass at the "Ukraine/Crimea border and threaten a sovereign nation. A huge majority of the population wanted the mobster/Russian puppet out of power. they will now elect someone more qualified to be president. Your calling the legislature now in control Nazis is plain stupid. the real Nazis are putin and his power folks.

    we should have let Ukraine into NATO in 2008 and this would never have happened.

  34. Don L. Kirk

    Lets not forget that a lot of leaders think Putin is not all there; and capable of easily starting WWIII. He is more concerned on bringing back the Soviet Union, than anything else. Anyone that thinks that Russia is no longer communist, is wrong. People still disapear for speaking out against the government. Some things have lessened (for now); but Putin is quickly reversing those gained freedoms.

    OK lets be honest here. The guidance systems in Russia's nukes haven't been updated in 20+ years. I also know for a fact that the U.S. keeps the nuclear arsenal up to date technology wise. Russia would be signing their own death warrant if they ever fired a nuke at us.

  36. Mohammad Y. Addasi

    US will never start a war. in both WW , us came in at the end and claimed the win. We are a pussy of a country. so dont worry people there will never be a World War were USA is the main reason. We could have started one earlier if sent forces to Syria, but obama just like Truman , pussied out. WWIII could have happened in the 50's if truman attacked china during the korean war. So as much as i want WWIII to start, its not gunna happen any time soon.

    Because anyone who dislikes Obama's leadership skills, and his actions can not POSSIBLY be anything other than a racist, am I right?

    Obama is one of the worst qualified, ill-advised, clueless presidents I have ever seen. I don't care if his name was Whitey McRichguy and his skin was perfectly white, I'd still be against him. Throw away that pathetic 'racism' schtick and start responding with some actual facts, with documented and proven reasons why you like it, and what explains his actions and we can have a debate like adults. But if you want to be a useless child and just hurl the "oh you're a racist" talk, save it for your own people.

    TL;DR version? STFU.

    WW3 was started by the NWO Marxist Bankers led by Soro's & began when Tunisia was invaded. Arab Springs were an attempt by the NWO to insert The Muslim Brotherhood as ruler of the entire African continent. The Ukraine was "Arab Sprung" after they decided NOT to join the EU & Soro's/Obama sent in Blackwater troops to initiate violent riots. The BRIC Alliance of Russia, China, India, Brazil & any nation wishing to keep their sovereignty are Anti-NWO & will protect their homelands to death… See Egypt for details.

    The WH propaganda machine has the MSM running videos of gunners shooting, implying Putin shot his way into Crimea. Obama had told Putin he would turn a blind eye on any Russian expansion as long as Putin allowed Muslim immigrants to flow into the Ukraine & operate without interruption. Putin replied that Obama can eat dirt & die…. well, sorta.

  43. Justin Dermit

    I like how this is stated as if its "new"s (new news). They've had the capability for years. Decades. They just want a reason to go to war. Or rather, Putin, wants a reason for war. Everyone who is someone, always wants to be someone better. Law of nature. Only the strong survive, therefore when all of the strong are left, those who don't become 'bigger and better", cease to exist. Putin is one to beat his chest and make every effort to become someone bigger and better than he is today. They have a strong nationality, just as the US. I wouldn't hold someone out for pushing the button, but I also wouldn't hesitate for a second to say that our pride, wouldn't go down without a fight.

  44. Ignacio Lopez

    I know some ex – kgb and while we have cut defense spending and research. The Russians have developed much more sophisticated weapons then we have including cloaking their new missiles from are net. Obumer refused to pay for and cut new defense measures to counter this. Plus if we detect Russian missiles being fueled he will do nothing, like not sending ships into the black sea before Russia did (Putin moved troops into the region weeks before this started. Putin knows he could deliver a knock out blow before this coward could act.

If War World III occurs anytime soon, it's simply poetic justice, for we as humans, as a whole, are self-absorbed, fearful beings, that are so hellbent on survival, that we are most assuredly causing our own demise at an escalating speed. Unless, of course, Mother Nature 'decides' to make 'the first move'.

    The world as who knows it? America and Russia aren't the only countries in this world. If they both blew themselves up.. News Flash.. most of the southern hemisphere would watch, maybe blink a little and when it's all over maybe even let out a cheer for a more "foreign country" tolerant world and the demise of ethnocentrismic cultures.

    Our weapons have been built by the lowest bidder! Have you seen a high ball ? We have drones and hit with visual pinpoint precision. But we must see what we hit, their cloaking hides them from our missile net defense. Their nuclear tactical weapons are the best in the world, but they lack in ground tactical weapons. The navy is better, heck china ships our better than ours! They are counting on first strike. We wouldn't get our birds in the air in time. Their navy is bigger, air force is bigger, ground troops bigger.

    Then that should be our focus, we should stress miscomunication or unreasonability. If we lay out the foundation for our argument and say, "Here's what we're telling them. Here's our proposed solution. They say that won't work for X reason. We say it will for Y reason." Then I'm sure we can get some groupthink from the public. I just don't see a point in flexing military egos, as it's obvious that turning any country into radioactive ash will most definitely have negative residual effects on the entire world. World economies are too interdependent and the consequences of nuclear action would outweigh the benefits of gained power for Russia. It's like two kids in a playground fighting over a ball when they can just play catch and both benefit.

    It's none of our business. No one appointed us world police force, and we need to stop acting like we are. We have friends and allies we do need to defend and protect, the Crimea and the Ukraine are flat out none of our business. And let's see, Russia is threatening to invade one country. Last time I checked, we've already invaded two.

    You being from Harvard Univ. I gotta say you're a dumb ass and know nothing about the defense of the U.S. Just hide, grab your gun and pray! MORON! "How about a nice game of chess?"

    Honestly the United States and Russia are both capable of turning each other into radioactive ash, and well if we did that, what would that be like for the rest of the countries? You would have the Two most powerful countries destroy each other, then that would leave the other power hungry countries to try and rule over each other. I think Russia and the United States need to be allied because, without us and Russia the other power hungry countries would be out of control and surely domesticate an attack on one another.

    On another case if we were to attack each other there would be nothing left for anything to survive and the world would be thrown into a doomsday apocalyptic world and honestly earth would cease to exist.

    Obama is neither tyrant nor pushover. In general, the criticism of him being inconsistent and indecisive is closer to the mark. But the accusation that he has been feckless in Ukraine is still dubious, because those demanding a stronger response have been unable to come up with one.

    well how bout this ww3 happens now or when we get more teconlogical adv thats one thing we cant avoid so if it happens now and if we dont fire nukes cause we can do the same thing to russhia so they aint going to do it to us dettarent i think its called. but if we go to ww3 we add in north korea and china the two biggest enemeys and start adding democracy and big economical boost for america do i want war no do i think it will happen in the next 20 years yes

  67. Garrett Klaus

    Brayan Lopez one its to late for that and two if we didnt go to war hitler would have won the war and so your saying not going to war is smart?

    I suggest Russia and Putin thing calms its nerves before America and Israel and our allies put an end to their war mongering invading boloni…they are as totalitarian and freedom hating as they come and the ones that may end up becoming a radioactive frozen tundra is Russia and from what I read in Ezekiel 38 and 39 they are pretty much destined for a Holy Whooping. I suggest you chill out Emperor Putin….fool lol

  69. Bruno Blanco

    Nah, they're not crazy enough for starting a war that would erase them from the map. It's true they can convert the US into radioactive ash, but they know the same thing applies to them. The only way that would happen is if Putin drinks too much Vodka and makes his call while being really drunk lol :P

  70. Travis Lee Hamrick

    What about the folks that disappear in the US for speaking out against Obama. Breitbart was one of them. Just keep that in mind. We are more of a democratic peoples republic than North Korea. The difference is that we have electricity, food, and running water.

    If man is going to survive we’ve got to grow up and stop wagging war, the planet certainly cannot take it. War has been a common occurrence for millennia, but it simply can’t continue, we must evolve and end this insanity. For man to survive and for freedom to remain alive in the world we must find another way aside from war to settle our differences. God has sent a New Message into the world to guide us onto a new path but there is not much time so this message needs to get out to the people, all peoples of the Earth. If you think this could be possible go and see for yourself the New Message from God, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQ5QG3MUTtg.

    We had a pretty good relationship with Putin and Russia when Bush handed off the WH keys to Hussein Obama–we went from good to a current cold war status nuclear threat status. Very serious and very much the fault of Clinton and Obama–What will it take to remove Obama from the WH?

  73. Troy Thomas

    openid yes, in a flash they would say yay the bad guys are gone maybe….but they would die as well. Nuclear winter would kill them as well as radioactivity. So cheering on the destruction of US and Russia not the best idea.

  74. Susan Huller

    Honestly, Russia and the US have been going at it for years. Both countries know the risks nuclear fallout would have over the entire world….and if Russia sets things in motion so will the United States. It's old news. This whole bombastic display by Putin, as well as by our own government (hey, the only reason we're in the Middle East basically is for oil, but God knows we have plenty of that stuff in our own country….heh….oil…money….power) is like two apes pounding each others' chests saying, "I'm mightier".

  75. Susan Huller

    A simplistic outlook but one I agree with wholeheartedly. Just think….if we were able to take away nuclear weapons…hell, all modern weapons, really…and resort back to spears, knives, swords….chariots…it would be even steven. No one could end life on earth as we know it by causing a nuclear ice age–people in power might think twice before pounding their chests.

  76. Joseph Castellani

    If anything happens it wont be nuclear, any Nuclear war between Russia and U.S. would destroy the Earth in days and the leaders are smart enough to understand that. It wouldnt just between America and Russia busting off shots, it would China then the UK then Everyone else with the capability which ultimatley means no survival.

  77. Wade Knudsen

    Ignacio Lopez Nothing you've said amounts to anything without proof. Also with our bloated military budget and the rampant fraud in the Pentagon, I'm sure there are defense systems even Obama doesn't know about. Also, we have nukes all over the world, not just in the U.S., we would have ample opportunity to strike back. The only chance they have is to take out our entire nuclear arsenal in one blow. That would require them to know the location of every single nuke at all times. The chances of them having up to the date info on their locations at all times is highly unlikely.

    talk is cheep. Russia is a bully. Russia would not win the war. they have a small country, we know were to hit them hard.

  80. Brian Ehni

    Since the Russians are laughing at his sanctions, and may in fact have been emboldened by the tepid efforts of Mr Obama and Mr Kerry, I do believe feckless fits. One wonders if Mr Kerry has reminded the Russians that moving all those vehicles is emitting a lot of greenhouse gasses, since the environment seems to be his #1 priority these days.

  81. Gavin Cooke

    Putin is a posturing fool who takes off his shirt as fast as Matthew McConaughey. What a pompous child. That being said to start a war with the US is suicide. The whole reason why Russia is no longer the USSR is the Russians SAW what our military did in the first Gulf War to their best machinery. 20 years later it is WORSE. We spend more money on our military than their ENTIRE economy could afford. Our bad equipment is more modern than their BEST equipment.

    Could they fire ICBM's at us? Sure, but the majority would be shot down in transit and the rest would either end up landing in Idaho or at sea due to their outdated guidance systems. In the meanwhile our ICBM's could actually pick which window of the Kremlin to enter through. I'm sure that ONE of them would hit Putin in his flabby chest.

    WWIII is bad for everyone on the planet. Even a spineless bonehead like Putin knows this as does OUR spineless President. Russia is simply Europe's gas can. They have nothing else to sell that anyone would buy except for outdated weapons to outdated countries like Syria. The Ukraine is not worth picking a fight or a war over. All we have to do is wait for Russia to go bankrupt from staging the Olympics and put them into foreclosure. Leave Russia and the REST of the world to kill themselves. Getting in the middle of someone else's fight is folly. What IS funny is that John Kerry, who said we should stay out of Vietnam is so gung ho to get in the middle of ANOTHER fight that is not ours. Is he REALLY that stupid???

  82. Tom Burke

    I have news for the Kremlin. World War 3 already happened; it was called the Cold War and fought on 5 continents.
    Now we are in the midst of WW4, called the War on Terrorism.

  83. Saitaina Moricia-Malfoy

    Travis Lee Hamrick Considering most of the idiots online are still around, no one's dissappering for speaking out against Obama…or Bush…or Clinton…

  84. Saitaina Moricia-Malfoy

    The fact there were armed forces standing over them as they took the vote doesn't bother you?
