If the translation is correct, then he's retarded. The missile interceptors proposed by the US would be virtually useless against a Russian nuclear attack (leaving aside the fact that they have nuclear capable submarines which could evade the interceptors). They can simply put too many missiles into the air for the US to plausibly defend against (the Strategic Defense Initiative found that out already). The US' defense against nuclear war with Russia has been and continues to be the doctrine of MAD - the US can end life on the planet, Russia can end life on the planet, neither of us have any interest in doing that, so neither of us will. Simple enough.
I don't speak Russian, but it looks like different interviews cut together to me.
Nice work, very funny

I kind of like Putin myself. I know everyone will smell blood in the water when I say that. He's pretty straightforward. It's more than I can say for a lot of other leaders. He seems to walk the walk that he talks and I can respect that even though I may not always agree with it.
