Its a message to The West from Russia.

It reads: "We are deadly #ing serious. Dont dare think we are some little backwater ME nation that you can bully around."


Their official news release is hinting that they have a new way to evade missile defense shields. It may be a bluff.

One would hope but so far it's looking pretty legit. Multiple sources reporting the same thing.

I see this as a shot over the bow. I guess Russia and Kyrgyzstan have some type of agreement where Russia can use targets in their country for practice; For a fee I bet.

It hit it's target in a Russian operated ordinance proving ground. That is what proving grounds are for.

It is also a response to the US show of might in Korea. The US and Russia are now officially playing "chicken."

I would even go so far as this proving he might get backed by China, this is pretty straightforward. Or is still categorized as military exercises.

Here we go.... Wow is all I can say.


MOSCOW, March 4 (Reuters) - Russia said it had successfully test-fired an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) on Tuesday, with tensions high over its seizure of control in the Crimea and its threat to send more forces to its neighbour Ukraine.

The Strategic Rocket Forces launched an RS-12M Topol missile from the southerly Astrakhan region near the Caspian Sea and the dummy warhead hit its target at a proving ground in Kazakhstan, the state-run news agency RIA cited Defence Ministry spokesman Igor Yegorov as saying.


www.trust.org...

Is that a trustworthy source?


My question is what kind of ICBM did they reload the Topol launcher with, since the one they launched was a test/dud/target missle. That's the real question, I guess.

Oh Lordy...Putin is taking a page out of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's playbook of tactics. Too bad the bear didn't win his wrestling match with Putin.

This is not going to help calm troubled waters.

I'm an idiot I guess but please tell me , does that mean this area is for Russian ' target practice' and is not hitting any ' targets' that are people, buildings, towns, etc. ? Russia owns/ leases this area just for this purpose , so no one is being 'struck' by the missiles? TIA

It doesn't matter which side looks best on paper... because which ever side loses.. the other will
attack with nukes. Only a miracle would stop that.


You mean the losing side would resort to nukes. Not necessarily, because that would result in Mutually Assured Destruction. There would be a mutiny before then.


I don't agree... War on this scale would way to fast.
Western Europe could not and would not Tolerate Russia Invading their soil.

Russia would not and could not tolerate NATO on theirs.

At the point of knowing either side is losing .. panic would set in and the order wold be given to fire a
small salvo of tactical nukes... THE END
