While the democrats secretly hope that Robert Mueller can prove that President Trump is some sort fo Russian asset, the Kremlin is making terrifying threats against the United States.
The absurdity of Mueller’s conspiracy cabal aside, the tension between the United States and Russia is at a level likely not experienced since the end of the Cold War. Not only have both parties withdrawn from an important nuclear arms treaty in recent weeks, but President Trump was dealt an ugly hand when former President Obama took a few parting shots at Putin on his way out of the Oval Office.
Now, in a risky escalation of rhetoric, Russian President Vladimir Putin has made an overt and harrowing threat toward the USA.
Russian President Vladimir Putin delivered his version of a State of the Union address on Wednesday and included a threat to target the United States with ostensibly invincible hypersonic nuclear-capable missiles if the U.S. deploys intermediate-range ballistic missiles to Europe.
Putin’s threat was a response to U.S. withdrawal from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty, which the United States has long accused Russia of violating. Putin claimed those accusations were false and suggested Washington was merely looking for a pretext to scuttle the INF so it could deploy land-based missiles to Europe.
Putin insisted Russia will not be the first to deploy ground-launched ballistic missiles in Europe but will retaliate if America does so.
Putin’s hypersonic missiles are believed to be impervious to current anti-missile arrays and batteries due to their unfathomable speed of travel high in the earth’s atmosphere.
