No doubt Russia running their propaganda mouth is real. As far as ww3 no it's not real. Maybe a cold war, but as of right now the Russian economy is gone and putin needs to scare his people into believing in him. Running his mouth won't get the sanctions lifted that's a fact.
You do realize a nuke exchange is NOT the end of the world or of our countries, right?? This isnt a cartoon. Weve set off more nukes for testing in this country alone than would be used in a tactical exchange... fear mongering is weakness.

Crap...it's all crap to build up their failing economy..we will never go to nuclear war because that's the end of civilization as we know it...regardless how many elite have bunkers.
We have 60 + nuclear power plants in the United States...imagine a bunch of them going off line and melting down? Fukishima in two parts of the world..the carnage of even an EMP attack over our country would have grave consequences throughout the world...not going to happen and both the Russian and the US have plenty of balastic submarines and this saber rattling of them moving some updated nukes means absolutely nothing..
This nuke talk is a huge waste of time and energy...
Now the Russian hacking our banking/military/wall stareet system is a more plausible scenario

Fear is weak.
But intelligence is not, and the intelligent thing to do, is realise that although you are right, more nukes have been tested on your soil than MIGHT be launched in a nuclear war, a nuclear war would see decades of tests worth of nukes, dropped in the space of a year at most. I say a year, because a nuclear hot war would be...rapidly decided in all probability. THAT concentration of radiation over time, you have NO experience of, and WOULD be devastating in a way that a single detonation over a certain period, would not.
