Russian President Vladimir Putin boasted on Thursday that his country has developed a nuclear ICBM that can’t be shot down nor stopped by any country’s missile defense system. The nuclear intercontinental ballistic missile has unlimited range, as per Putin’s words, and travels 20 times the speed of sound. Russia’s new super-weapon was announced during Vladimir Putin’s 2 hour long state of the nation address in Moscow.
The new weapons in Russia’s paraphernalia include a nuclear powered underwater drone, a nuclear powered cruise missile and the aforementioned hypersonic cruise-missile capable of obliterating the US missile defense systems, which doesn’t appear to have an equivalent in the West. The hypersonic cruise missile was dubbed the Avangard and Putin says no NATO defense system can intercept it. Putin was quoted as saying:
“I want to tell all those who have fueled the arms race over the last 15 years, sought to win unilateral advantages over Russia, introduced unlawful sanctions aimed to contain our country’s development: all that you wanted to impede with your policies have already happened. You have failed to contain Russia.”
The nuclear powered underwater drone is also claimed to be almost impossible to intercept, as it travels at speeds 10 times faster than a regular vessel.
“No one in the world has anything like that. It may appear someday, but by that time we will develop something new. No one has listened to us. You listen to us now.
We will interpret any use of nuclear weapons against Russia and its allies no matter how powerful they are, of low, medium or any other yield, as a nuclear attack. It will trigger an immediate answer with all the consequences stemming from it. No one should have any doubts about it.
“We aren’t threatening anyone, we aren’t going to attack anyone, we aren’t going to take anything from anyone. The growing Russian military power will guarantee global peace.”

Remember that Putin is a nationalist, just like Trump is, and just like Trump, he’s building a strong sense of national identity and belonging. The globalists are hellbent on destroying that in Russia as well as in the US. They’ll happily use us to do it and vice versa. Divide and conquer is the name of the game. Now, regardless of Russia or America’s weapons’ sophistication, Russian and American interest don’t conflict, but hysterical Congressmen such as Schiff and Nadler, and insane neocons like Max Boot and William Kristol, keep unnecessarily ratcheting up tensions.
However, this is not a game. That is not what Putin is doing. He is witnessing mass hysteria from the West’s fake-news media, as well as from politicians and the left generally speaking. What leader wouldn’t be nervous based on what our governments have been doing the last 50 years?
