First of all, I'd just like to congratulate Putin. Although I'm sure it has nothing to do with the Missile Defense Shield the US is developing, he
has hundreds or maybe thousands of missiles he could toss at the US if he wanted to. Missle Defense is useless against Russia.
Now, as for Russia being to broke to do anything... who's running something like a multi-trillion dollar debt? Something is floating the US, and its
not the Government, they're broke. Russia is broke to, but not as bad, and they basically openly do business in black market trade and in organized
crime. Big bucks. The US? They trade with China for Wal-Mart stock.
Putin is probably building smaller, more 'useful' nukes, for everyday use. I'd say 'conventional', but that word confuses some people. I'd
probably be putting effort into developing nuclear devices that are man-portable and deployable. Not something so huge as to decimate a city or state,
maybe just a few city blocks, or even just a few buildings on a specific block.
No, I'm not crazy about nuclear weapons, but you know they are very effective at getting a point across. If weapons like this were to be developed,
it would eliminate any chance of mass mobilizations for any military force moving against the defending force with these weapons in their arsenal. You
couldn't launch a massive attack, or even safely sail a carrier battle group, without risking loseing it all in one shot.
A pat on the back to Putin, keep putin out the nukes. Besides, I love the slap in the face to Dubya
