Russia´s military conducted a series of intercontinental ballistic missile tests on Wednesday, the latest flexing of its muscles as tensions with the US spike over Syria. Russian forces fired a nuclear-capable rocket from a Pacific Fleet submarine in the Sea of Okhotsk north of Japan, state-run RIA Novosti reported. A Topol missile was shot off from a submarine in the Barents Sea, and a third was launched from an inland site in the north-west of the vast country, Russian agencies reported. The latest display of might by Moscow -- which has been conducting regular military drills since ties with the West slumped in 2014 over Ukraine -- comes as tensions have shot up in recent days.

Putin himself said that the situation is frightening. He gave this speech as a warning and a plea, we do not have a right to back them into a corner like we have been.
When one looks around the world today there is only one nation that has bases across the globe, slowly but surely encircling anyone who is not playing their game and that is the good old US of A.
This is like watching the special Olympics, it doesn't matter which one win's. they are both still retarded.

Funny thing is, I know the US population doesn't want a nuke fight- I assume the russian population doesn't want a nuke fight- We can pretty much assume that 99% of humans who know what a nuke fight means don't want a nuke fight.

Thing is that most people have no idea what it really means.
Too many people either think they'll survive it or that it will happen to "them" "over there" and not have much impact.
No one has any proper imagination.

can you explain what you are getting at with your comment. I'm very interested in what you're explaining but I can't quite grasp it
