Willa, there will be no WWIII between America and Russia, China or North Korea. Also if America was on the receiving end of a preemptive nuclear first strike, Israel would do not one d*mn thing about it unless it was a Arab country that initiated such an attack. They wouldn't even have to claim non participation in NATO, they just wouldn't do it. Like Saddam Hussein gassing the Kurd's in 1988 not one first world nation state including America took him into account for this blatant act of genocide until 2003 when Bush found it convenient to have him deposed and executed. Same with Assad. America and Russia could give two good craps about the Syrians. Vladimir Putin and former President Obama and now Darn Old Duck Trump are doing the Safety Dance until they finally split up that pie. Personally I think the goofball reports of the American and Russian jets buzzing each other is an especially dramatic touch which send shivers down the spines of the gullible that are stacking up food and water for only GOD knows why. Korea is going to eventually build out a few very low yield IRBM's since their ICBM gantry delivery vehicles have far surpassed their shelf life and spare parts are no longer available since the Russian and Chinese defense factories have been retooled for more modern weaponry but they want to convince Trumpet to ease up on some of the more economy destroying sanctions brought to bear in the last 3 months. As for Putin The Puppetmasters bluff about the real capabilities of Sarmat, the nuclear "Powered" (Not nuclear tipped) intercontinental underwater torpedo/drone and the 10K mile nuclear "Powered" (Not nuclear tipped) cruise missile, the NTI confirmed that America tried the nuclear "Powered" (Not nuclear tipped) cruise missile in the 60's and it didn't work then and it won't work now for America or Russia. The money expended for this bogus nuclear powered intercontinental underwater torpedo/drone would be a total waste of military funds like Reagans SDI farce. One Russian Typhoon just 100 miles off the East coast launching just 4 multiwarheaded SLCM's in depressed trajectory would incur the same damage to every deepwater port on the entire East Coast in 8 minutes as opposed to this steel guppy wandering around the Atlantic ocean for several hours to hit just one port. Now back to Sarmat. The NTI analysis revealed that Sarmat does not have the capability to obliterate any land mass the size of Texas or France. The biggest in size and highest yield nuclear device ever detonated by anybody was the infamous Soviet Tsar Bomba which was a 50 megaton drogue chute controlled gravity bomb which incurred a deadly blast radius no more then 35 miles. Texas is 261,000 square miles in actual land mass. France is 210,000 square miles in actual land mass. The Sarmat is expected to carry at most 8 to 10 heavy 8 megaton MIRV's or 16 light 4 to 8 megaton MIRV's. Deadly but nowhere near extinction level. This discombobulated propaganda video is too funny for words. Try not to laugh too hard, Vlad may hear you. Enjoy your weekend.
