The Pentagon is concerned about the build-up of non-strategic nuclear weapons in Russia

26
The US Department of Defense is concerned about the buildup of stocks of non-strategic nuclear weapons in Russia, reports RIA News Statement by Deputy Assistant Head of the Pentagon on Nuclear Policy Robert Sufer.




According to him, the Russian Federation currently has about 2-x thousand units of non-strategic nuclear weapons. But this is not an exact figure, in fact it may be more.

We looked at the Russian strategy, the Russian doctrine, the teachings ... and we need to do something to respond to this, we had no choice
said Sufer.

In the long run, we are concerned that their stocks of tactical nuclear weapons will increase, become even larger,
He stressed.

Earlier, the Pentagon published a nuclear doctrine, according to which in the coming years, US efforts will be directed to the development of low-power nuclear warheads. The US Department of Defense also stated that they did not intend to lower the threshold for the use of nuclear weapons, and the main goal remains to "contain both nuclear and non-nuclear strategic attacks."

Of particular concern to Moscow were the US intentions to create a nuclear “low-power” ammunition for sea-based cruise missiles and a “lightweight warhead” for the ballistic missiles of the Trident II submarines.

    And how worried we are.Moscow was particularly concerned about US intentions to create a "low power" nuclear weapon It will be interesting to know. There are few fools on both sides of the ocean. There is already an answer from our side.

    Poor things, The whole world threatens them and does not allow them to carry a palm branch and launch pigeons of the world. And all because Russia has a huge military budget, and light soldiers from the USA eat up the last horseradish without salt.

    The Pentagon will still have many “concerns”, it’s necessary to somehow use up such a pre-military budget ...

        They will not finally drive their inhabitants on the ground, no?
        They said in our army - if a sailor is forced to croak, will he eventually jump? A joke, but there is a hint in it!

    With plans for a quick global strike (BSU) on Russia, the mattresses turned out to be zilch, now it remains to lean on nuclear weapons, which they have not really received yet. They overslept the actions of the Russian Federation to rearm the nuclear arsenal. Therefore, diarrhea is now emanating.

    But this is not an exact figure, in reality it can be more.
    And it may not be .. I’m also worried about a possible reduction in the number of penguins in the Galapagos, though they may not be reduced there .. recourse laughing They just get on their nerves ... Do not cut below what is allowed under the agreements and increase the forbidden - this is our way of developing a kuzkina mother and a guarantee of security ... No need to be screamed at "theirs" ..

    It looks like this: the United States is swinging to hit us, and Russia is preparing to block and strike in response. Seeing this, the United States expresses indignation at the "unprovoked aggression" of Russia. The United States, which is located beyond the puddle from us, is drawing all kinds of offensive nuclear and non-nuclear guano to our borders, but we are developing stockpiles of tactical nuclear weapons in order to carry out, in case of something, "disinfection" of any kind of Amer that threatens our clear and peaceful sky. Well, it’s not strategic nuclear weapons to beat near its borders, for them there is another urgent goal.
    And what is confusing in this ironic logic of the "exceptional"?

    Military expert Alex Leonkov stated that the United States "wants to put into orbit such devices that will drop solid-state alloy rods called the" Rod of God "onto the Earth.
    If you drop these rods in bulk on a settlement, then,
    they will fly at a speed of up to seven kilometers per second, a kinetic blow will result.
    In this case, unlike a nuclear explosion, there will be no ionizing infections, but there will be large-scale destruction.
    It’s practically impossible to bring down such a thing, because no air defense system in the world has ever hit a meteorite. ”

      "A body in free fall in dense layers of the atmosphere develops a speed not exceeding 180 km / h." (c) the same physics. You can calculate the potential energy of the "rod" yourself.
