Putin Threatens Nuclear War Over Ukraine



On Friday, as Russian Federation tanks and troops poured across the border into eastern Ukraine, Vladimir Putin talked about his country’s most destructive weaponry. “I want to remind you that Russia is one of the most powerful nuclear nations,” he said. “This is a reality, not just words.” Russia, he told listeners, is “strengthening our nuclear deterrence forces.”

That same day, Putin used a term for eastern Ukraine meaning “New Russia.” So when he refers to repelling “any aggression against Russia” and speaks of “nuclear deterrence,” as he did on Friday, the Russian president is really warning us he will use nukes to protect his grab of Ukrainian territory.

For more than a generation, nuclear weapons were considered defensive only. In a few short sentences on Friday, however, Putin made these devices offensive in nature, just another tool to be employed by an aggressor. And to highlight his threat, on Aug. 14 at Yalta, the Crimean city he had seized this year, Putin mentioned “surprising the West with our new developments in offensive nuclear weapons about which we do not talk yet.”

Also in Yalta, where the Duma was meeting, the Russian leader spoke about renouncing the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty between the U.S. and Russia. The treaty outlaws ground-launched ballistic and cruise missiles with ranges between 300 and 3,400 miles and is a foundation of the post-Cold War peace.

It is one thing to talk about withdrawing from the pact—Putin has been doing that since 2007—it is another to violate it, which Putin has apparently been doing since 2008, when Russia began testing cruise missiles again. And when the State Department’s Rose Gottemoeller raised the concern in May of last year, Russian officials tried to shut down the dialogue. According to The New York Times, they “said that they had looked into the matter and consider the issue to be closed.”

“Administration officials said the upheaval in Ukraine pushed the issue to the back burner,” the paper reported of the INF violation. Putin, with his comments Friday, just moved it to the front of the stove.

And not just in the European kitchen. If Putin manages to intimidate the West with his not-so-veiled promises to incinerate Ukraine’s defenders, other aggressors may think they too can employ his threatening tactics. For instance, both North Korea and China have recently talked about unleashing Armageddon.

Yup - just another effort on the part of the military industrial complex to get Congress to give them more trillions in corporate welfare. Sadly, some delusionals will believe that made up "threat" so kiss your tax dollars good bye.

WHO is gonna "disappear" Mr. Putin??

I'm afraid Vladimir is a disappearer, not a disappearee...........unfortunately.

You just keep living in the land of unicorns and fairies.........leave the reality to the adults.

Maybe the correct answer is as easy as not having your butt-cheeks automatically clinch when you hear Uncle Sam or Captain Hindgrinder is coming to town.
The two week an Kiev is Moscow's will get to be the catch phrase of 'Iran wanting Israel pushed into the sea' comment. Is it a good Idea to let the opponent decide things like that?

Which brain in the West should be thanked for this headline?

Should the sign be a dark and cold city this winter or a parking lot where there used to be a city before winter came?

Pissing into the wind. It's a bad idea to light up a nuke upwind of your house.

That brings a tear to my eye, just like it would bring tears to your eyes. I see the Syrian refugees are getting food, somebody on 'the team' mess up? (not the usual style) Remember how the sane people do it. For every insult you should have one personal opinion to share about the 'subject' of the thread.

Better than bombs eh Comrade?

Duh, you wonder why he's taking over the Ukraine..

The Putin Nationalist part I like, but the Greedy Capitalist Thug I do not like. Somebody will Assassinate Putin if he continues down this road and with more stupid Nuke threats.

He needs to focus on Trade and Infrastructure to grow his own country..

Hard to do that when you're banning imports from trading partners.

Investors are pulling capital out of Russia. Food prices are soaring. The rouble is losing value, as is their stock market. They better get that BRIC bank soon if they want to continue acting like they are, or Russia will have an internal battle to deal with.

That didn't work out real great for the leadership last time.

There was a brief period of lucidity in early July that has been noted on prior.

Why not be more concerned about my replies to you that go over your head than what I post to Boomer, who will have understood every jot. No different than me chasing you around in the beginning as I was expecting an answer to what I thought was a pretty straight forward question. That isn't always greeted with grace at this place as well as many others. Nor do I want Boomer to gloss over what his mouth did. I seem to recall with some clarity that when I questioned some of the material presented here as not being in line with other material that was also presented here as being something that should not be swept under the rug and you insisted that it should be and that is how things are today. It was his mouth that started the thread all by himself, you want to defend him go ahead but use the root issue rather than some bull**** about who would be Putin's bitch. If you are trying to prove you have too much time or you have no real news item to smear him with then. Not much different in character than you Muslim thread. We never did get around to covering any of the points in the vid that I said probably represented the Muslim view of things in the UK. For all the Muslim haters there should have been a few replies yes?

Coherent with you would be pointless would it not? Whatever view you have 'acquired' isn't going to be changed by anything I say to you and you know my view by now so unless there is a post like this I don't need to review what your post says as ir raeelt changes, and even the most recent change was no change at all when you looked at the content. Did you imagine yourself as having turned over a new leaf or something equally as dramatic, you didn't.

The ISIS fantasy contributes to my general attitude. Other than the fantasy that goes with it the ease and blindness that must be part of it means the outcome is already part of destiny and what happens next is already written in miry clay. That is because something like Murphy's law can come along and the wheels fall off just that easy. I'm content to sit back and see how this farce unfolds and hope it has a quick and painless resolution. The dollar tanking is something NA could recover from.

Let's say 1M went east into Russia and another 1M went west. Which side do you think is going to have a better file to hand the Courts at the UN?
