Vladimir Putin Just Issued a Chilling Warning to the United States

As the United States continues to develop and upgrade their nuclear weapons capabilities at an alarming rate, America’s ruling class refuses to heed warnings from President Vladimir Putin that Russia will respond as necessary.

In his most recent attempt to warn his Western counterparts about the impending danger of a new nuclear arms race, Putin told the heads of large foreign companies and business associations that Russia is aware of the United States’ plans for nuclear hegemony. He was speaking at the 20th St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

“We know year by year what will happen, and they know that we know,” he said.

Putin argued that the rationale the U.S. previously gave for maintaining and developing its nuclear weapons system is directed at the so-called “Iranian threat.” But that threat has been drastically reduced since the U.S. proved instrumental in reaching an agreement with Iran that should put to rest any possible Iranian nuclear potential.

The Russian president also highlighted the fact that although the United States missile system is referred to as an “anti-missile defense system,” the systems are just as offensive as they are defensive:

“They say [the missile systems] are part of their defense capability, and are not offensive, that these systems are aimed at protecting them from aggression. It’s not true…the strategic ballistic missile defense is part of an offensive strategic capability, [and] functions in conjunction with an aggressive missile strike system.”

This missile system has been launched throughout Europe, and despite American promises at the end of the Cold War that NATO’s expansion would not move “as much as a thumb’s width further to the East,” the missile system has been implemented in many of Russia’s neighboring countries, most recently in Romania.

Russia views this as a direct attack on their security.

“How do we know what’s inside those launchers? All one needs to do is reprogram [the system], which is an absolutely inconspicuous task,” Putin stated.

Putin further explained the implications of this missile defense system’s implementation without any response from Russia. The ability of the missile defense system to render Russia’s nuclear capabilities useless would cause an upset in what Putin refers to as the “strategic balance” of the world. Without this balance of power, the U.S. would be free to pursue their policies throughout the world without any tangible threat from Russia. Therefore, this “strategic balance,” according to Putin, is what has kept the world safe from large-scale wars and military conflicts.

Following George W. Bush’s 2001 decision to unilaterally withdraw the U.S. from the 1972 Antiballistic Missile Treaty, Russia was, according to Putin, left with no choice but to upgrade their capabilities in response.

Putin warned:

“Today Russia has reached significant achievements in this field. We have modernized our missile systems and successfully developed new generations. Not to mention missile defense systems…We must provide security not only for ourselves. It’s important to provide strategic balance in the world, which guarantees peace on the planet.

Under the guise of following an anti-nuclear weapons policy, the Obama administration has announced plans for a $1 trillion nuclear weapons plan, which — let’s face it — is targeted at Russia.

Neutralizing Russia’s nuclear potential will undo, according to Putin, “the mutual threat that has provided [mankind] with global security for decades.”

There is no winner in a nuclear war between Russia and the United States. This has been not only confirmed butrepeatedly warned about by atomic scientists who — if we are being honest — are the people whose opinion on this topic should matter the most.

It should, therefore, come as no surprise that NASA scientists want to colonize the moon by 2022 — we may have to if we don’t drastically alter the path we are on. As Albert Einstein famously stated:

“I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.”

  1. I remember reading an article years ago that both Russia and the US decided long ago that they both were against the production of and use of nuclear weapons and both had began a program that had a neutral party help to regulate the destruction of such weapons. If I had a thought for humanity I would continue this path. I pray you both find this solution to be Nessasary for mankind… Truth be told that if you two can’t find peace here on earth there is no point in going to colonize the moon. The reason being is you will bring the same values there as you do here. So please be thoughtful in making such desicion we are human first and foremost.. thank you for reading..

    • It is not Russia, it is the Government behind the Government of the USA who cannot stop making war because of the money making out of it. Russia does not want war, even the people in Russia went last year on to a huge demonstration for PEACE. And Putin is also pro peace. But the USA is threatening all the time.

      • America does not want war .we have a president that I believe is a undercover Muslim brotherhood terroist and is doing everything to destroy America he is letting everyone in our country to destroy us.he sold America out and Hillary they belong in jail.the political Goverment is the Beast of the Revelation.I pray they GOD will be done.GOD has been taking out of our Country.we all need to pray to GOD ask for forgiveness and keep our faith that he will spare the ones that try to do right.GOD gives us eternal life in heaven or he’ll we all need to make a choice if we do right we will get what we give.GOD BLESS the whole world in JESUS precious mighty name every knee will bowl.let’s makes peace not war.let’s pray to our father who art in heaven.

  2. USgov is not equal to NATO, why mentioning countries and not people? those people are really abusing of their position relative to govs… distance from governments abstraction protection… fuck the evil elite and the evil people and system and “society”…

    • Your a fucking moron… You will not fuck the U.S. up anymore than we will fuck you up. Do you have any idea what nuclear war is fucktard? You and your family will die.. Me and my family will die. Don’t be such a hate mongering idiot we are talking about the end of both our countries here.

      • It’s sad that the heads of the two countries are aimed at war making. All us little guys in both countries just want to get along and be friends. But our govts are going to kill a bunch of us on each side to satisfy their own egos.Thank you anon for opening every ones eyes.

      • Not just Rússia or América ,this means end of the world for a vast majority ,only the very very rich will survive (for a bit longer), 90% or more will die, imidiatly, dumb Race maybe that will be the best for the planet

      • Perhaps, if you looked at the situation with an open mind, you’d soon realize that maybe the annihilation of the two biggest war-mongering nuclear super powers would be a good thing for the rest of the world. There’d be no more nuclear threats to have to worry about, and no more fighting over some other countries’ oil to feed any war machines.Plus in a thousand or so years, there’d be much more land open for re-settlement by over-crowded countries. I believe this to be a good thing in the end. The vanquishing of two despots.

        • If you think Russia and the US annihilating each other would be a good thing you’re wrong. There would be a massive power grab by the remaining countries which would result in decades of war and suffering and ultimately probably the destruction of the human race.
