Russian Media – Threatens Entire World
Well That Escalated Quickly
By: Cristal M Clark
An article in MK.ru, written by the Russian Media seems to be threatening pretty much the entire world.
The article was addressed quite pointedly at the UK, but the description of the nuclear fallout basically covers well, the entire world as we know it.
The article stated that a new nuclear torpedo, the “Poseidon” nuclear torpedo could create towering tsunami waves and that it could destroy “vast swaths” of Earth’s population.
According to a BBC translation MK.ru had this to say:
“Russia will soon deploy an underwater nuclear-powered drone which will make the whole multi-billion dollar system of US missile defense useless.”
“An explosion of the drone’s nuclear warhead will create a wave of between 400-500 (1,300-16,00 feet) meters high, capable of washing away all living things 1,500 (932) kilometers inland.”
Well that certainly paints a pretty clear picture of Russia’s intent to dominate the nuclear arms race.
Perhaps MK.ru took a few liberties because if memory serves I believe that during a previous interview, scientists told Business Insider that Russia’s Poseidon nuke could create tsunami-sized waves, but could only estimate them at around 100-meters-high (330 feet) waves.
True, the US currently has no counter measures to protect us from Poseidon and Russia already has the nuclear firepower to destroy much of the world yet, not surprisingly, still struggles to achieve its foreign-policy goals.
No one is really sure why MK.ru made such an erroneous threat toward the entire world, MK.ru, more often than not overstates Russia’s nuclear capabilities and her willingness to fight, everyone.
Then again, this could also be something the Russian Government backed, in that it very well could be a move taken straight from Donald Trump’s playbook, bully your way through shit and hope that in the end, you do get your way.
