The headline is comically absurd. According to US-Israel, any country with an aim to defend itself against imperialist aggression is a threat and an enemy. But just think of how many countries have been aggressive against US or Israel? Any? Unless one believes the official version of 9/11. Unless one believes that Bin-Laden masterminded an operation which involved 3 state governments at the highest echelon of power to pull such a thing off. Unless one believes that the US ‘got’ Bin Laden years after he was dead of natural causes…and declared him dead buried at sea with virtually no evidence and no witnesses.
And where should we suppose US has it’s own nuclear warheads pointed at!
What would have happened to Colonel Qaddafi
MOSCOW — President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia threatened the West with a new generation of nuclear weapons Thursday, including what he described as an “invincible” intercontinental cruise missile and a nuclear torpedo that could outsmart all American defenses.
The presentation by Mr. Putin, which included animation videos depicting multiple warheads aimed at Florida, where President Trump often stays at his Mar-a-Lago resort, sharply escalated the military invective in the tense relationship between the United States and Russia, which has led to predictions of a costly new nuclear arms race.
While Mr. Putin may have been bluffing about these weapons, as some experts suggested, he cleverly focused on a vulnerability of American-designed defenses: They are based on the assumption that enemy nuclear missiles fly high and can be destroyed well before they reach their targets.
The new class of Russian weapons, he said, travel low, stealthily, far and fast — too fast for defenders to react.
Mr. Putin’s announcement, in his annual state of the nation address, seemed intended chiefly to stir the patriotic passions of Russians at a moment when he is heading into a re-election campaign, even though his victory is assured in what amounts to a one-candidate race.
Tillerson hints at forthcoming military coup in Venezuela.
