Vladimir Putin has warned that if the US Senate does not ratify the START nuclear weapons treaty, Russia will build its nuclear capability.
Putin makes it clear that building their weapons is not a threat, but it is what is expected to happen if the treaty does not get pushed through.

Russia is only do what it has to do to maintain their ability to strike back against an American first strike. It's been like this since the Americans deployed Neptune nuclear missiles in Europe before the Cuban Missile Crisis.

That Sukhoi T-50 is an awesome looking piece ain't it!!! To bad is a part copy of the F-22. But I really like the Sukhoi T-50 better myself. I don't know if it will able to compete with the F-35 as it's supposed to be able to do but it will however be far ahead of the two dinosaurs it will replace.
