The Pentagon has recognized the presence in Russia of weapons that the United States does not have


The presence of such weapons in Russia as the Burevestnik cruise missile with a nuclear power plant and the uninhabited Poseidon submarine equipped with a nuclear power plant is a cause for sadness for the US military.


During a meeting with reporters, Deputy Head of the US Armed Forces Strategic Command Vice Admiral David Criti acknowledged the obvious:

Russia continues to build up nuclear weapons that the United States does not possess.

He is also echoed by Peter Fent, deputy assistant secretary of defense for nuclear affairs, who said that developing its new weapons, Russia went "in an expensive and difficult way", but, in his opinion, "this is a reasonable way" that will allow it to quickly close the gap from American "superior non-nuclear forces."

Statements by US officials were made after the United States launched a medium-range ground-based ballistic missile from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, which we wrote earlier.

Thus, Washington, recognizing the superiority of Russia in certain types of weapons that are not covered by the Treaty on medium and short-range missiles, is trying to justify the US unilateral withdrawal from the INF Treaty and the beginning of a new round of the arms race.

    And they are not far behind. For some types of weapons, they are much ahead.
    Russia is betting on the impossibility of a major nuclear war and is developing weapons systems aimed at "decision centers."
    Americans admit the possibility of a limited nuclear war on the European continent. Therefore, for more than 15 years, ultra-small nuclear charges have been developed. Power is about 0,01 kt.
    It is believed that the use of such charges will not cause a massive retaliatory attack on the territory of the United States. But Europe is not at all sorry.

      The main thing is that they do not have an advantage and there is no illusion of the possibility of an unpunished strike.

      It is believed that the use of such charges will not cause a massive retaliatory attack on the territory of the United States. But Europe is not at all sorry.

      This is considered to be in the United States, fortunately, they have been told that they are mistaken.



      I think they will not decide on any "limited" war. And Europe, I also do not mind, the only thing that upsets, they are neighbors, and fallout will go to us. But due to the above voiced reasons, such a development is unlikely.

      0,01 kt is 10 tons of TNT. Let me remind you that 13 years ago, in Russia, the AVBPM was tested, with a capacity of about 44 tons. Then it was carried by the Tu-160. It seems that by reducing its power and dimensions by 4 times, the bomb will be able to raise the Su-34. On the whole, it is not clear at what stage of development the high-power detonating ammunition is located. Perhaps we have something in store for a long time ...

        The problem of creating ultra-low power ammunition lies in physical laws. It is impossible to create a critical mass of uranium or plutonium of such low power. We need fundamentally different elements. In 2004 (if I remember correctly) Congress lifted restrictions on the creation of ammunition of ultra-low power. Unlike the “nuclear club,” only two countries have the ability to create such weapons: Russia and the United States. So there will be no spreading around the world. Millions of dollars allocated for R&D. In what state of affairs it is now is unknown. The rationale is standard - it is an ideal weapon against terrorists.
        And now we are entering the present. The recognition of Lugansk and Donetsk as terrorist organizations is on the agenda. And the American aviation strikes terrorists without declaring war and without inviting a legitimate government. So even without the participation of NATO, the States may well cover the APU with an aviation umbrella (following the example of the air forces in Syria). And the Ukrainian "meat" they all the more do not mind. In the event of such an aggravation of the situation, it is quite possible that Russia will be drawn into the war and all the media will shout that Russia is the sponsor of terrorism. Voting at the UN will clearly not be in favor of the Russian Federation.
        Then there are options that are difficult to calculate. But it seems to me that LDNR and Russia do not have much free time.

          In my opinion, you yourself are well aware of the surrealism of such a scenario.

            Why so? In my opinion, a very real prospect.

              I do not even want to enter into a discussion on this issue. If you consider such a development possible, so be it.

            Want real surrealism?

            One morning, Stirlitz went to Muller. Mueller's mood was gloomy.
            - Mr. Gruppenführer, what happened? Are Russians already in the suburbs of Berlin?
            - Stirlitz, throw your stupid jokes! I had a night mare! I dreamed of Germany in 2015!
            “And so, is everything so bad there?”
            - Not the right word, Stirlitz!
            Imagine, in Germany we have a chancellor - a woman, a foreign minister - a pederast, Turks work at Daimler-Benz factories, Germany pays the debts of Greeks and Spaniards, Instead of torchlight processions - gay pride parades, we pay money to Jews and carry out Negro commands from America! The Nazis in the Kremlin, and not in the Reichstag, Russia is fighting with Ukraine, and Germany, imagine Stirlitz - GERMANY - persuades Russia not to fight !!!
            "Really some kind of ..." thought Stirlitz ...

            Tell me, could this be imagined?

    The presence of some weapons that have already been used can only be confirmed by the inhabitants of the village of Nenoksa (by the way - a purely Russian name), but not by the Pentagon. Do not lie!
