Moscow (AFP) – A leading anchor on Russian state television on Sunday described Russia as the only country capable of turning the United States into “radioactive ash”, in an incendiary comment at the height of tensions over the Crimea referendum.
“Russia is the only country in the world realistically capable of turning the United States into radioactive ash,” anchor Dmitry Kiselyov said on his weekly news show on state-controlled Rossiya 1 television.
And of course, all the soft-headed soft-power true believers to the contrary, he’s absolutely right.
Nuclear weapons are the equivalent of our Second Amendment RKBA guarantees on the international level. If you’ve got nukes, nobody seriously fucks with you.
Which is all the more reason we don’t want to let Iran get nukes. Bambi thinks he can live with a nuclear Iran. Hell, he can’t even deal with the far more civilized and rational nuclearized Russkies. Anybody who trusts his take on a bunch of Muslim madmen brandishing the Big Bombs deserves whatever they get – good, hot, and hard.
