Russia is now fully prepared for a nuclear war with NATO with this state-of-the-art flying command center capable of maintaining full control over Russia’s armed forces in case of a global disaster or nuclear war.

Russia’s defense industry has completed a number of tests of the airborne strategic command center aboard an Ilyushin Il-80 aircraft, which will be used by Russia’s military on battlefields when there is no ground infrastructure in the area, and when communications from ground facilities have been disrupted, according to RT.

To this day, the United States was the only country in the world to possess a command center of this kind. The new generation flying command center is a modification of the Il-86 wide-body jet airliner, and is set to enter service in Russia’s military by the end of 2015, according to Russia’s United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation (UIMC).

The Il-80 command center has significantly improved performance in terms of survivability, functionality and reliability, while the electronics on board have drastically reduced power consumption, according to the manufacturers, as reported by RT.

The flying command center, which has already been named a ‘doomsday plane’ by the Pentagon, carries senior generals, staff officers as well as a crew of technicians who look after the aircraft’s technical equipment.

Doomsday plane has full control over Russia’s armed forces

The flying command center, thanks to its technical capabilities, is capable of managing and distributing tasks to all units of Russia’s armed forces: ground forces, aerospace forces, Navy and strategic missile forces.

Moreover, NATO, in the event of a military confrontation against Russia, will struggle to destroy the airborne command center because its main advantage is its “invincibility,” according to Aleksandr Komyakov, director general of the production company that designed the command center.

“While [command] installations with known ground positions could be eliminated, an airborne command post is a target hard to disable because it shifts continuously. The Americans call this type of aircraft “doomsday planes,” Komyakov said in an interview with ITAR-TASS.

The doomsday plane’s main task is “establishing [communications] networks in extremely unfavorable circumstances, with ground infrastructure missing or destroyed,” according to Komyakov.

World War 3: Russia will destroy NATO – report

The news come as the tensions between NATO and Russia have dramatically escalated after an incident that has already been named the most dangerous military encounter between NATO and Russia’s forces in over 50 years.

Last Tuesday, Russia’s Su-24 jet was shot down by Turkey in Turkish airspace. The Turkish military claims it had issued 10 warnings in 5 minutes to the Russian jet, but it ignored all the warnings and the two F-16 jets were sent to destroy the warplane.

The Russian Defense Ministry insists its fighter jet never violated Turkish airspace, and was flying over the Syrian territory.

Turkey, which is seemingly protected by NATO’s 5th Article, which states that an attack on one Ally shall be considered an attack on all NATO members, could find itself all alone in an imminent war with Russia, according to analysts of Russia & India Report.

While in theory the U.S. and other NATO member states are treaty-bound to come to Turkey’s defense, the chances that the Americans would be willing to risk New York for Istanbul are “smaller than small,” the report noted.

Moreover, it should not be ruled out that the “hothead” NATO member state – Turkey – could attack Russia on its own, the report suggests.

“A nuclear exchange will undoubtedly have catastrophic consequences for both sides – and perhaps the entire planet – but there are certain factors that could skew the fighting field in Russia’s favour,” according to the report.

Americans won’t risk New York for Turkey

Russia currently possesses 1,643 deployed strategic warheads, while the U.S. has 1,642, according to data exchanged between Moscow and Washington on October 1, 2014.

Even though the difference is insignificant – only one warhead – Russia’s land-based strategic forces have the kind of explosive magnitude that is greater than anything among U.S. military’s hardware.

Russia’s SS-18, which is called ‘Satan’ by the Pentagon and NATO, is capable of destroying an area the size of the New York state. The missile carries 10 warheads, each having a force of 750 to 1000 kiloton, while some of these missiles have a single ‘secret’ 20,000 kiloton warhead. To get the idea, that’s 1333 times Hiroshima.

It was also noted in the report that “80 per cent of the American population resides on the eastern and western seaboards,” which means a few “well-aimed” nuclear missiles – such as the SS-18 – can end all human life in these densely populated coastal strips.

Russia, meanwhile, has a population only half of the United States and the people are dispersed widely across the country, which means human life in Russia can easily survive first and second nuclear strikes.

Russia can destroy New York with one nuclear strike – report

With Russian President Vladimir Putin warning NATO of “serious consequences” for shooting down the Russian fighter jet last Tuesday, analysts have every reason to believe that Moscow is willing to unleash a nuclear war over the incident.

Despite the fact that Turkey is backed by NATO’s 5th Article, it is highly unlikely NATO member states, including the U.S., are going to risk the lives of their troops and their military equipment to save Turkey, according to analysts of Russia & India Report.

That assumption alone means the chances that Putin is going to test NATO’s resolve and start a nuclear war over the incident are very “likely,” according to Pavel Felgengauer, Russia’s top defense analyst, as reported by ValueWalk last Wednesday.

And in case Putin starts a war with NATO, the only way the Russians could win a war against NATO is by going nuclear, Felgengauer noted.

“It is most likely that it will be war,” said Felgenhauer, as reported by ValueWalk, citing Mirror. “In other words, more fights will follow when Russian planes attack Turkish aircraft in order to protect our [Russia’s] bombers. It is possible that there will be fights between the Russian and Turkish navies at sea.”

Putin urged to start dropping nuclear bombs on NATO

In what appears to be alarming signs that Russia’s leadership is considering the possibility of responding to NATO militarily, Russian officials are urging Putin to take action.

Vladimir Zhirinovsky, leader of the Liberal Democratic party and Russian presidential candidate in 2012, called on Putin to start dropping nuclear bombs on the Turkish capital of Istanbul, killing over nine million people.

“A nuclear attack can destroy Istanbul very easily. Just one nuclear bomb in the Istanbul Strait will wash the city away,” Zhirinovsky told Moscow Speaking Radio.

“It would be such a terrible flood, the water would rise to between 10m and 15m and the city would [flood],” Zhirinovsky continued and added, “And then there are nine million lives.”

The comments from one of Russia’s leading politicians come after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned Russia not to “play with fire,” hinting at NATO’s 5th article.

In what appears to be a yet another alarming sign, it was reported by ValueWalk on Tuesday that Russia has already started handpicking nuclear-powered allies for imminent nuclear war with NATO. In particular, Moscow is seeking to build military ties with Pakistan and China.

  1. A good war movie for you is Charlie’s War, about Russian and American involvement in the Afghanistan War. How we could have saved the middle east way back then. They asked for books and tents, we said no. Cheap is no fun. We like expensive solutions.

  2. If china was cut off from US trade today they would collapse in a year. Their entire economy is based on manufacturing cheap junk for US consumers. They will go back to a billion uneducated people. It’s deceived not deceive dumb ass your writing skills are about 3rd grade education.

  3. Noted, China put territory integrity first before anything, economic they will build afterwards, so don’t be deceive by your little mind

  4. I know you seem to be a guy who spends a lot of time at here with Anti Russian propaganda so I can guess what you are and do it probably pretty accurately.

  5. That exactly what people who knows their sucks would say, hell the U.S don’t even need aircraft carriers to be better then Russia. All Russia has old s t from the 80s and unmotivated conscripts.

  6. You’re a sad little man aren’t you Steve Seith ? Angry at all the big guys. Wishing you could launch a few missiles. Must be difficult for you to see happy people when you are so very sad.

  7. I don’t think China will do it they will wipe out all progress it has made if they attack the west. American companies have lot of ties to China that is where they are making all the money. Putin will fade away into history like others have.

  8. The RSM-56 had failed 6 out of 13 launches in 2009 like much of Russian made devices high failure rates. Trident 2 is far advanced it would be suicide for Putin to push the button on the west. His country will be wiped out he will have USA,France,England as well who have ICBM’s against him. China isn’t going to risk everything they have built in the last 10 years on this kook.

  9. Olga,
    Are you telling me Putin has what it takes to start a NUCLEAR war with Turkey?
    If you really believe that, it is further proof that he neither has the balls or the brains!

    As the topic indicated we were talking about starting a NUCLEAR war. Not a conventional war. A conventional war doesn’t require neither balls or brains. Any two but dictator, a gangster in your case can start one. Sadly many do not know how to end them/

  10. Hey George…have you ever been in an actual command post playing these ‘war games’…? I have!! I can remember actually going to an alert because there was a Russian sub visible off Pt. Loma! A missile traveling at 4.5 miles a second would not take very long to get to the correct height before the burst…high or low altitude.

  11. Exactly what someone who knows their aircraft is pure t would say? Even then they barely have influence anywhere that is near their borders.

  12. Sadly its the Russian people being fooled by this narcicist Putin.
    He controls the media, kills or jails his opposition on a whim. Goes shirtless to impress us with his virility when most likely he had errctile dysfunction or a tiny penis and is compensating.

    The real tragedy is the Russian people are being led down this road by a fascist on par with Hitler.

    Ironically the Russian people are owed a great deal of respect for the tremendous efforts and staggering losses in WWII. They are worthy of respect. They arent scummy either.

    Their people want the same things we do.
    Freedom from want and need. Safety and security for their families. A furure for their children. A bottle of vodka for Saturday nights.

    Not so different from us. Instead Putin fans flames of war and fear to further secure his weak position. They dont know we dont want to harm them.

    But mark my word today, China and Putin are planning a first strike. To hit our military bases and not our citiez. Then threaten and coerce surrender without more losses. This could work as we have a sicialist coward in the White House.

    The most dangerous time for us is now til inauguration of the next President. Obama is a traitor and a muslim on hiding.

    Im not a commie lover. Im a Vietnam Vet. A,republican, and a member of the VFW.

    Stop the name calling. The oerson who wrote this does not understand that we will launch on warning. The other thing they forgot is WE F THE FUCKING WORLD!!

    Hope your prepared.

  13. I rehashed it because you seem to not gotten my points. And you still don’t. If I answer your questions again, it will just be a rehash. I don’t want to waste my time and repeat myself again a third time. But I will answer this: In regards to been squeezed. Do you read the news? The USSR split. Neighboring countries joining NATO. Now the situation in Ukraine. The talk of Ukraine and Montenegro joining NATO. I know what you are gonna say. You gonna say how is that been squeezed? Are you blind? Do I have to explain everything to you? If you are Russia, you will feel it. Your argument that Russia is the largest country doesn’t fly. I explained that already. It is an unwritten policy of western nations to isolate Communism and this is one way of doing it. And don’t give me the BS that I’m using conjecture with no facts. I’m not stupid. People may piss on my boots and tell me it’s raining but I can smell it. I think for myself and make my own conclusions because you can’t trust what anyone says these days. Politicians will outright lie and the media feeds those lies to the populace w/o consequences. You believe whatever you want and I will believe whatever I want. It seems nothing I say will get through to you. I have no intention of changing your mind.

    No, I’m not saying Turkey should allow Russia to violate its airspace at all nor does any sovereign country allow such an act. You’ve made the wrong conclusion as if I’m a child and I would approve of something like that. But I’ve seen reports that Turkey violates Greece’s airspace all the time. One report said 2,244 times last year alone. Do you see Greece shooting down Turkey’s planes? Even now, Iraq’s saying Turkey has ground troops in Iraq and Iraq wants them out. But Turkey doesn’t want to get out. My point here, if you missed it again, is that just because an airspace violation occurred, it doesn’t mean you should shoot it down, especially if it is not an imminent threat. It’s not like Russia and Turkey are at war… at least not yet. Do you see how hypocritical it is to argue that you can shoot anyone that violates your airspace yet at the same time you violate other countries’ airspace? If you don’t even understand this basic behavior then you’re hopeless.

    I don’t care about geopolitics. I care about preventing wars. Facts? What “facts” did I say that isn’t factual? That Russia is smaller than its former USSR? This isn’t a fact? My opinions are just that. My opinions. So are yours. The only facts you’ve provided is the distance between U.S. and Russia in the Bering Strait, Russia’s land size, and time zones. All are just geography that anyone can pull up. Your “fact” about Russia violated Turkey’s airspace is not a fact. No one knows for sure if it did or didn’t. The only fact is that it is still been debated. The black box may answer this question. But even if it shows the plane crossed the border, there is no reason to shoot it down. This is and has always been my position.

  14. You fail to answer the basic flaw of your premise of your earlier post, How is Russia being squeezed?, answer this question as that is what your long earlier post was based on and you have just rehash your entire post without addressing the issue. Also address the “enemy next door” scenario you claimed and address the fact the US has had no border issues with Russia,

    According to Turkey, Russia violated it’s airspace and after several warnings shot it down. You seem to be saying Russia should be allowed to violate Turkeys airspace because they are Russia?? All you have posted is conjecture with no facts.

    Clearly you do not understand geopolitics, yes, you are entitled to your opinions, that is true, however you are not entitled to your own facts.

  15. you clearly have no idea about the NATO missile defense system that is being deployed in stages to protect the US and Europe, phase 1 and 2 already completed, this is not hear say, it’s done, the full system will be completed by 2020. It’s not what I think, it’s fact!!

  16. NATO is a treaty between nations, there is no such thing as hear say, or who said what, it is also not a matter of trying to depend on other nations. You clearly live in a world of your own and don’t understand the complexities of war. Here’s a brief example of the ramifications: in a hypothetical scenario that the US was attacked, we would retaliate, obviously, but can’t fly directly to Russia to take the war to them, we’ll likely land in Britain on our way there, or somewhere in a NATO member country in Europe, the Russians will see that as an act of war by that country, and if Britain, or some NATO allied country allowing us to land, has not yet declared war on Russia, the Russians will have no choice but to declare war on tha country. And it will keep escalating, getting more complicated by the minute, until we are all immersed into a full world war. No time needed, this is already written in history and by NATO treaty.

  17. You missed my point. But then you wanna make your own point. To lose something you already have is not acceptable to anyone. Let’s say you own a 100 acre property, your neighbor next door owns only 1 acre. Your neighbor encroached into your property by 1 foot. You now lost 1 foot of your property. It’s just a tiny fraction. But will you accept it? Of course not, especially if you’re not on good terms like the U.S and Russia. Bigger doesn’t necessarily mean better. Been squeezed doesn’t mean it hurts less because you’re big.

    Again, you missed my point about enemies next door. You’re comparing apples to oranges. The border between the U.S, and Russia have been drawn a long time ago and they’re accepted by both nations. But to have a country next door join your enemy is not acceptable. And using your argument that Russia has the largest land mass in the world so they should just let their enemies settle down next door and give up land without even a protest won’t fly. It may fly with you but not me or anyone else.

    If Erdogan isn’t cocky, why did he tell Russia not to “play with fire”? You may have your own definition of cocky but to me this is been cocky. Turkey does it because it has NATO. If it didn’t, do you think Turkey would tell Russia not to play with fire after shooting down one of their planes? It’s like me kicking you in the balls and telling you to suck it up. Who’s the real one playing with fire here? Look at the situation now. Russia isn’t backing down and is more resolved than ever because of the downing of their plane and over Erdogan’s comments. If Turkey keeps poking the bear… it will get what’s coming to it. If you think Erdogan is so smart, keep supporting him. In fact, write a letter of support to him telling him how smart he is. When war erupts, give him a medal, too.

    I’m entitled to my opinions and so do you. If you want to make your own points, start your own thread.

  18. isay stand down to Russia also and show us some respect for your show of trying to scare us, you also are scaring the hell out of your own people

  19. “If Russians want us to regard them as civilized people why don’t they speak the language of civilized world?” – William Somerset Maugham

  20. Orthodox Christian knights named Vlad know how to fix the Turks…

    The best thing about Russia getting Crimea back… Catherine the Great took it from the Turks… What happened right after Russia retook Crimea? The Russian FSB searched all the Turks living there… Why? Because NATO sponsors Islamist terrorism when it suits them.

    Syria and Ukraine are the same scenario as Serbia… NATO bombed Serbia so the IMF could make loans for rebuilding and get control of Serbian iridium assets… North Atlantic Terrorist Organization.

  21. Time to do your home work.

    If the POTUS we’re to go up in a hot air balloon it would be designated ‘Airforce One’.

    Start with ‘Looking Glass’ and work your way up from there.

  22. I never visit communist country. I don’t trust them. Have you ever been in downtown LA? There are lots of homeless people begging for money.

  23. Yes, Russia is broke, USA is broke and China is broke. Israel just asked USA for 50 billions to survive because it also broke.

  24. In worst case scenario, millions of people would likely die should these power-hungry countries engaged into war. Worst than everyone of us could ever imagine, the end of the world.

  25. Here’s a reality, no matter what numbers that are posted about Russia’s population, if one can believe it, number do not matter. There is a misconception regarding Russia’s power. Russia is the most powerful country at this time. A war with Russia will surely mean the end of this planet. NATO may initiate a nuclear attack against Russia, but when Russia and its allies hit back, they will completely and absolutely destroy this planet. It will be a force that no one expected. Advise to NATO; stand down, show Russia some respect.

  26. Her is a bombshell….that Putin must also know as Putin is crazy but he is NOT stupid ..

    When it comes to firepower USA is up-too in some cases 20 times the size of Russia … Just take f. exs.

    Aircraft carries USA has 20 Russia has 1

    Fighter aircraft USA has 2207 Russia 769

    Fix wing aircraft USA has 13892 Russia has 3842

    Helicopters USA 6196 Russia 1120

    And lets not forget that all the USA weapons are tip top and high tec,. Russia for the most part has old soviet leftovers not so much new stuff some new stuff but not something worth worrying about ..

    The truth is Russia is a analog watch in a digital age …When it comes to the USA …

    ooo YES AND manpower NATO has now over 2,5 mill more active solders in its ranks than Russia has now

    USA ALONE has 1,400.000 ..all battle harden and professional it is their job to be a solder..

    Russia only has 766.055 Most of them are farm boys doing their 1 year national service.

    AND IF WE PUT NATO INTO this mix we are talking fire power advantage up-too 29 times of Russia

    www . globalfirepower . com

    Above is conventional weapons

    Lets take also take into account nuclear weapons…

    United Kingdom 225 warheads (submarine delivery systems new and up to date systems )

    France 300 warheads

    (submarine delivery systems new and up to date systems )

    United States 7,315 warheads

    (Mixed delivery systems new and up to date systems )

    Russia 8,000 warheads

    (Mixed delivery systems old mostly from the soviet union times NOT up to date systems )

    SEE LINK

    www . icanw . org

    Base on this facts Russia does not stand a chance as most of NATO warheads are on Subs. and NOT in silos like Russia that makes it easy to take out with NATOs defiance systems …

    All NATO must do is take out Moscow and 5 -6 other city’s to take out all of Russia…. But Russia must take out city’s all over the planet from USA , CANADA ,FRANCE UK. ALL OF EUROPE and as fare away as , AUSTRALIA and so on and so on …

    PS. lets not forget the the Submarine KURSK was part of

    Russia’s nuclear weapons platform and it was falling apart to such an degree that its systems torpedo systems on the Sub. malfunctions and blow up under water and sank the sub and .. killed all of its crew ….

    Now if that is what Russia’s nuclear delivery platform and weapons platform is like all I can say is hahahahahaha and lest us not forget that Kursk was the pride and joy of Russia’s navy… What does the rest of the Russian nuclear weapons program look like if Kursk is anything to go by ?

    I mean…… If you can not hold your submarines floating in

    pace time what hope do you really have for holding your submarines floating in war time ?

    SEE LINK

    www . en . wikipedia . org /wiki/R…

    Kursk was an Oscar-class submarine, twice the length of a 747 jumbo jet, and one of the largest submarines in the Russian Navy.

    An official investigation after most of the wreck was raised along with analysis of pieces of debris concluded that a faulty weld in the casing of the practice torpedo caused high-test peroxide (HTP) to leak, which caused the kerosene fuel to explode. The initial explosion destroyed the torpedo room, severely damaged the control room, incapacitated or killed the control room crew, and caused the submarine to sink.

    AND LETS NOT FORGET another thing take a look at the shooting down of the Russia flying Lada just last month that Turkey did with that American fight jet F 16 IT WAS like taking candy from a child easy to the point of ridicules..

    IT WAS LIKE TAKING CANDDY FROM A BABBY FOR THE F16 TO SHOOT DOWN THE RUSSIAN JET .. SU-24

    Why so easy because SU-24 fighter jet it is Russian made and like all things Russian it is a LADA

    This just shows that a F16 nato jet easily out fights and out guns the flying Russian Lada that is Russians jets..

    And the fun thing about this hole thing is that F-16 Fighting Falcon is now getting decommissioned by most if not all NATO nations as they think it is out of date but it still takes down the flying Russian Lada that Putin has to play with …

    It will be fun to see what the new generation 5 NATO jets can do in 2016 / 2017 when most of then er delivered to NATO nations I am of-course taking about the JSF. Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter (JSF)

    THE NEXT BIG THING IN AIR WAR FIGHTING POWER SEE UNDER THE F-35 A REAL SHARK ATTACK OF A JET see link www . f35 . com/

  27. All I says is……

    Any evidence coming out of Moscow is as fare as i CAN SEE Lies.. Just like the was lying about that their pro- Russians terrorist did not shooting down MH17 over Ukraine with the Russians army BUK system Just like they was lying about that is was not Russian army in crimea Just like they was lying about not have any GRU and FSB and special forces in East Ukraine just like they was lying about a CIA , neo- nazi EU take over of Ukraine and lying about so called food / aide trucks going into Ukraine when it had weapons coming into and Russian dead solders going out..

    Anything that comes out of the Kremlin is most likely a lei ..

    And even if this is not a lie and Turkey was involved in Islamic State oil trade IT STILL DOSE NOT change that fact that a Russian jet filled with high powered bombs enter turkeys air space and Turkey has all rights in accordance with intrs, law to defend her borders and territory..

    THE TRUTH IS that Moscow is now spinning out lies and fabricating evidence in the best KGB Putin style to smoke screen the issue of there fighter jets violation of Turkeys territory and to discredit Turkey as much as they can,..

    This is a typical FSB discredit campaign and the Kremlin are the best in the world at doing this type of propaganda…

    ISIS is selling oil to Syria, the very country the militant group is trying to take over.

    Apparently, ISIS makes $1.5 million a day by selling oil, making it a strategic priority to take over oil fields and refineries in Syria.

    The Syrian government, ruled by the brutal dictator Bashar al-Assad, is currently engaged in a civil war with various rebel groups, as well as a war against ISIS, which is trying to establish a caliphate in the region.

    Syria needs oil to fight these wars, and since ISIS controls a significant amount of the oil production infrastructure in the country, they are forced to buy oil from ISIS.

    In addition to selling to Syria, ISIS also sells oil to black market traders in the region, who sell the oil to rebel groups or people living in areas that ISIS controls.

  29. LETS TAKE A LOOK AT WHY PUTIN IS TRYING TO MAKE USA LOOK BAD TO HIS OWN SCUMMY PEPOLE

    Russian economy is falling and falling and falling your stinking RuSSian nation is going down into the deepest evil drakes hole where it belongs hahahaha

    And i love it absolutely love it Nothing will give me more pleasure then seeing Russia and Russians get what they deserve..a place in pain and agony .

    Only good RuSSian is DEID RuSSian if you ask me …

    And the way it is now going for RuSSia I think this X-mas the world and my self has a lot to be thankfully for..

    As the world can now see the fall of the evil nation called RuSSia and the ruble must get a new name we will now call it rubble hahaha Ooooo happy days !!!!

    Debt Crisis Looms as Putin’s Pledges Bankrupt Russian..

    In addition to pushing Russia’s poorest citizens further into poverty, these cuts will in essence slash investment in Russia’s human capital at a time when this investment is pivotal.

    First, Western sanctions imposed over Russia’s role in the Ukraine crisis cut off investment, then the price of oil fell sharply, sending federal budget revenues and the ruble currency tumbling.

    Total regional debt, excluding federal aid, rose from 22 percent of the regions’ income in 2009 (excluding federal aid) to 34 percent, or 2.4 trillion rubles ($42.3 billion), at the end of last year. Their debt could climb by around 25 percent to hit 3 trillion rubles ($52.9 billion) by the end of 2015, Vartapetov said.

    Some regions are in significantly worse shape than others: 40 of Russia’s 83 regions — excluding Crimea and Sevastopol — have debt exceeding as high as 60 percent of their revenues, and 10 are nearing astonishing 100 percent..

    AND THE BEST THING IS THAT hahahahaha It is expected to get worse in 2016 if the trend continues over 60% of regions will have a have debt exceeding at 100% … Ooooo happy day Ooooo happy days !!!!!

  30. LETS TAKE A LOOK AT WHY PUTIN IS TRYING TO MAKE USA LOOK BAD TO HIS OWN SCUMMY PEPOLE

    Russian economy is falling and falling and falling your stinking RuSSian nation is going down into the deepest evil drakes hole where it belongs hahahaha

    And i love it absolutely love it Nothing will give me more pleasure then seeing Russia and Russians get what they deserve..a place in pain and agony .

    Only good RuSSian is DEID RuSSian if you ask me …

    And the way it is now going for RuSSia I think this X-mas the world and my self has a lot to be thankfully for..

    As the world can now see the fall of the evil nation called RuSSia and the ruble must get a new name we will now call it rubble hahaha Ooooo happy days !!!!

    Debt Crisis Looms as Putin’s Pledges Bankrupt Russian..

    In addition to pushing Russia’s poorest citizens further into poverty, these cuts will in essence slash investment in Russia’s human capital at a time when this investment is pivotal.

    First, Western sanctions imposed over Russia’s role in the Ukraine crisis cut off investment, then the price of oil fell sharply, sending federal budget revenues and the ruble currency tumbling.

    Total regional debt, excluding federal aid, rose from 22 percent of the regions’ income in 2009 (excluding federal aid) to 34 percent, or 2.4 trillion rubles ($42.3 billion), at the end of last year. Their debt could climb by around 25 percent to hit 3 trillion rubles ($52.9 billion) by the end of 2015, Vartapetov said.

    Some regions are in significantly worse shape than others: 40 of Russia’s 83 regions — excluding Crimea and Sevastopol — have debt exceeding as high as 60 percent of their revenues, and 10 are nearing astonishing 100 percent..

    AND THE BEST THING IS THAT hahahahaha It is expected to get worse in 2016 if the trend continues over 60% of regions will have a have debt exceeding at 100% … Ooooo happy day Ooooo happy days !!!!!

  31. It is sad to know that an insane muslim leader (Erdogan) will cause ww3. Everyone knows that this snake in the grass has his own hidden agenda. The question is…will the US and NATO come to the aid of this madman that is dealing with maniacs like ISIS??? Can the US be that stupid?

  32. TM, I believe that you and a lot of others just might be a little surprised if it ever came down to push or shove. I do not believe like you and some others believe, You can say, think or even believe what ever you want and that is your right, but I personally do not believe that America has ALL of the backing from the different countries that you have listed. Yes, I will admit that they all say this and they say that,, but when the going gets tough and you really get down to the nitty – gritty that is when you really find out who your friends and your true allies are. IMHO, i truly believe that if America tries to depend on Britain, France, Germany and etc., that the very same thing will happen to America that will happen to Turkey, if Turkey depends on NATO to come to their aid against Russia. Just remember, and i am very sure that you have already found this out during your life, ” Talk is very cheap, but doing what they say they will or will not do, is altogether a very different story when it comes down to backing up their words” and the very same things apply to politicians, countries and even governments. I wish you well in you line of thinking and only time will tell the real story.

  33. Elmer, in answer to your question or your comments, why does anyone do those type of things, even the Western Media is another one that is very guilty and is extra good at spreading their type of BS, lies, spin and most importantly their type of propaganda. just like everyone else around the world.

  34. Bullshit is still free! She is obviously pro Russia and against west.
    Her article is trash and rubbish and full of assumptions in favor or
    Russia! She assumes west is not capable of striking back or defense
    against any incoming nuclear missile. Articles like this are
    just a flat joke! US has developed new EMP
    weapons capable of jamming and destroying all enemy electronic devices
    in the air or on the ground. Besides, Russia must be totally insane to
    provoke a nuclear war unless they want their land to be flattened by US
    air power.

  35. Bullshit is still free! She is obviously pro Russia and against west. Her article is trash and rubbish and full of assumptions in favor or Russia! She assumes west is not capable of striking back or defense against any incoming incoming nuclear missile. Articles like this are just a flat joke! US has developed devices like LRASM and new EMP weapons capable of jamming and destroying all enemy electronic devices in the air or on the ground. Besides, Russia must be totally insane to provoke a nuclear war unless they want their land to be flattened by US air power.

  36. alex, I do agree with you and your comments and I believe that our government, TPOTUS and our politicians in Washington DC are listening to the wrong people and reading the wrong reports and they just like a lot of others are underestimating what Russia and Putin, is REALLY capable of doing if push hard enough or tried to be bullied by America or any other country for that matter. Also, it seems that a lot of people keep forgetting, that Putin backs up 99.9% of what he says and very, very, very seldom ever backs down once he says something. That is just one of the reasons that I respect the man (for doing what he say’s he is going to do). At least you can respect and count on the man for keeping his word, that is a lot more than I can say for a lot of the other world leaders.

  37. Steve, while I do agree with you “about no country wants to be the “FIRST” country that uses a nuclear attack on anyone else, no matter if it only kills just one person. Just remember that America still holds that record “as being the only country that has ever, ever, ever used any type of nuclear bombs. That being said, also remember this, that any country if pushed hard enough or long enough (that includes America ) may resort to using some type of nuclear missiles to defend its self, borders, country and citizens in the case ever a rises. Just like a caged animal, a animal, a country, a government and even a person will strike back if push into a corner or pushed hard or bullied long enough, that is just reality. Wishing everyone everywhere a very nice week end where ever you may be.

  38. Hitler was loved by Germans as well. Freedom of the press is nonexistent now in Russia you need to wake up and stop drinking the kool-aid. Fox news can go 24 hours a day bashing Obama do you think that could happen in Russia? No one criticizes Putin they will end up dead. Reminds me of Germany in 1930’s. Putin is slowly removing freedoms until it will be too late because everyone is so stupid to see what he is doing.

  39. I read all your insights and arguments… It is very alarming to the People on Earth. Instead of exchanging of arguments of ideas or reliable information on both sides…let us PRAY that love, unity and peace will prevail.

  40. Ren, talking about propaganda, are you that naïve to think that Russia is the only country or government in the world to use Propaganda and Russia is the only country that has supporters, trolls and has paid people to use Propaganda in the media and on TV and the internet ? Because that is the way that you come across to me and i am very sure to some of the other posters. FYI, I sure hat to burst your bubble, but every country and every government (including America) does the very same thing. America uses the Western Media to do ALL of their dirty work for them, because the Western Media is very, very basis when it comes to America and Israel. The Western Media tries to make America and Israel look like the 2 best countries in the world , while at the very same times they try to make every other country, their government and their leaders look very, very terrible, like they are thugs, terrorist and every thing else in between, by spreading their BS, lies, spin and propaganda and hoping that somewhere a long the line that a very large percentage of views will believe everything that they are saying. You can say what you want about Putin, but I respect the man,(1) he says what he feels (2) 99.9% of the time Putin backs up what he say’s (3) Another thing, Putin very, very seldom ever, ever backs down from what he says that he will or will not do. When you combine all of those things together that is why I respect the man. Oh, and before you or anyone else starts that very same old line “If you like Putin so much why don’t you move to Russia “. let me just say this, I am 80 years old, a 100% DAV, served 24years in the American military, served in 2 wars and some different conflicts between 50’s and the 70’s and would do it all over again if asked to serve my country. Further more I do not have any intentions of moving to Russia or anywhere else. Out of all of you that want to point fingers at someone else, just how many of you ever served in combat and watch a friend (buddy) get blown away that was very near you when it happened ? Until then, please do not go pointing fingers and telling someone that you do not even know or have never met, to go live in another country just because he or she does not agree with you. Wishing everyone everywhere (especially military families) a very nice week end where ever you may be and I would also like to thank each and every serviceman and woman and their families for their service for their country and welcome home.

  41. Ok since you asked here it is. US, Turkey and Israel have alliance and an agenda. Their plan is to destabalize the whole east one country at a time first then weaken Russia so Turkey and Israel replace Russia as new superpower! Also because Russia would not give in to their needs. Their plan started from Iraq, Lybia, Ukraine, Serbia and now Syria. Let’s see why US is so arrogant thinking their idea is right and others wrong, and yet everywhere they touched it became a failure. Their idea is to take down Russia the only viable power that can stop their evil plan.

  42. Settle down people, name calling and yakking back and forth is to no one’s advantage.
    There is no glory whatsoever on any war, much less a nuclear one. It is not people that causes war but governments and their twisted policies and greed.
    Please reconsider the terrible consequence on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and those atomic weapons were fire crackers compared to today’s nuclear arsenal. Enough of this nonsense for the sake of humanity all over this world. God help us.

  43. Jenny I lived in Russia, Armenia, Lebanon Jordan Israel America, who do you think has better idea someone who seen all sides or you.

  44. This report is rubish, trash, and built on the source theories that he says will/will not happen. Not sure where this source gets his info but it looks like a lot of guess work. Now that is 3 weeks since the Turkey/Russia shoot down I guess we can all say that there is a reason why Russia didn’t take any military action against Turkey. They chose economic sanctions that will end up hurting Russia as much as Turkey. But they save face and not push a war that this guy says Russia can win.

  45. it is so easy early bird stiation. who lunch nukes first get the victory. russia is wounded bear and may attack whatever it see. easily fire the nuke missles everywhere on the earth.

  46. I know…if you state facts that are an inconvient truth for you it makes one ignorant–If you lie and spew untruths knowingly like you –you are smart? HAHAHA You are just a maggot low life low paid troll instigating garbage with your weird lies. Obviously the leaders of Russia and Cina know this, but you do not! HAHAHAHAHAHA I love poor people mouthing off.

  47. Watch the videos and read the NIV Bible yourself (King James was a homosexual Sodomite and his version is corrupt junk) . The Bible interprets itself and the reason there are so many “FAKE” interpretations is purely due to corruption of the faith. This is just as there are fake Judges who corrupt the courts today and ignore the law, the fake preachers ignore Gods law. If you know what the Bible is about in whole, you will see it is almost devoid of so called “interpretations” because any one who tries to do this stumbles and fails when challenged because they make no sense. You see the Holy Spirit is “one” and if there are many interpretations then that is paganism and corruption and they did not submit to the Holy spirit who will guide them. There are also supposed to be no denominations because that shows corruption and corruption is the reason there is a New Testament. If you hear the truth it will be very obvious and will clarify and not confuse. Our Country is falling because the Church is impotent and ignored the grotesque evil of abortion, that alone shows complete and utter failure.
    1 Corinthians 1:9-11New International Version (NIV)
    A Church Divided Over Leaders

    10 I appeal to you, brothers and sisters,[a] in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought.

    The term Biblical “scholar” is used too liberally today.

  48. Did Miss Piggy truly love Kermit the Frog, or was she just using him to advance her career because he was the most famous Muppet? No one WANTS to start a nuclear war. (duh) BTW, when did this so-called “WW3” take place? I must’ve slept through that one.

  49. Well, what the heck, I thought you were an idiot, but I’m going to have to raise your I.Q. to stupid, although being stupid is nothing to write home about it, but how in the hell did you guess that I was a mental health professional? I don’t want to toot my own horn, but since you are an idiot, oops a stupid and can’t tell the forest from the trees, I have been told by six different commentators how smart I am.
    Only one here, I think, in this forum has told so. I haven’t anybody tell you that. And how you like them apples? When people have agendas defending whatever stupidity fancies your stupid mind, those don’t bother me an iota, because again, one liners have to be signs of mental retardation and so sorry you are on the last stages of your stupidity. If you progress a bit more, I’m sure you can become, once more the idiot I think you are. Keep up the good work!

  50. Funny thing about Russia: their entire strategic goal is to protect the Moscow heartland, mostly because the Eurasian plain is an absolute nightmare to defend by land. They’ve been in a siege mentality since basically the time they got surprise buttsex from the Mongols with no lube. Consequently, we wouldn’t have to nuke “the whole country” because a good 80% of Russia’s landmass is useless, borderline-inhospitable permafrost. Yeah, you’ve got some small population centers out there but they’re nowhere near self-sufficient, and their very survival is one the Russian government has subsidized since basically Tsarist times.

    No, MAD exists very much for the benefit of the Russians because they have very few actually worthwhile population centers that are almost certainly preprogrammed targets. Russia would have to take out every single American military installation on the planet, as well as the governmental and military centers of every NATO ally, and every ground-based ICBM launch site, at the same time, and all it’d take is one SSBN blowing its load to effectively end Russia as a country.

    If you were Putin, one of your generals would have you dragged into the street and shot as a threat to the safety of the motherland simply for suggesting nuking Turkey, because the absolute last thing Russia wants is a war with NATO where the world views Russia as the instigator. That’s generally a Bad Thing for a country that manages to thrive mainly as an energy exporter. Nobody’s going to want to buy your crap.

  51. Your comment makes no sense in relation to the subject. “Where” 082071 “sits” is irrelevant. It doesn’t hinder one’s ability to gather information, & it also doesn’t change that fact that you are what 082071 claims you are; a delusional (& clueless) troll with zero credibility. Don’t worry about 082071, brah; worry about yourself.

  52. Putin has no intent to fight a world war as he is well aware of MAD (and we are all aware of what nuclear weapons could do). His deployment of Russia ‘s doomsday plane (assuming it is true) is to show his supporters in Russia that he is responding to the downing of the Russian jet by Turkey. . It is just to show
    his supporters at home that Russia is still strong. This he believes will increase his popularity
    at home. Also, doomsday plane is not only deployed to fight a world war. The US , for example, had deployed its doomsday plane during 911 (September, 2001).

  53. Your’re comment makes no sense in relation to the subject. “Where” I “sit” doesn’t change that fact that you are what I said; a delusional (& clueless) troll with zero credibility. Don’t worry about me, brah; worry about yourself.

  54. Hi Ivan, I have friends, neighbors, and associates from Russia. Do you have friends, neighbors, or associates from the USA? Why do you think that is, exactly? Careful, your response will be considered in your green card application. Be Well

  55. Your Character and Ignorance speaks of it’s self as evident by your latest ignorant rant ! enough said by You … don’t waste any more time showing your ignorance !

  56. I trust to Putin much more than I can believe to that muslim kenyan immigrant you have as your president. Am I wrong?

  57. Not really, I’m just expressing my opinion whitout recurring to extremes, if you disagree just vote it down or reply with arguments. There’s no need to engage in a high school style cyber fight with insults (which you haven’t done yet, but in my experience, these online discussions always lead there)

  58. The only wet dream here is Russia thinking it can survive the next thirty years as anything other than China’s gas station what with the average Russian male mortality age of 59 and the last truly educated generation of Russians (as in, the generation of college graduates prior to the collapse of the Soviet Union) charging headlong into that entirely foreseeable wall.

    Everything you see Russia doing today is basically Russia compensating for something, on a geopolitical stage. Russia wants so desperately to convince the rest of the world it can be “just like America,” conveniently ignoring how the rest of the world thinks one America is bad enough.

  59. U.S nuclear arsenal is FUBAR. Didn’t get the Pentagon memo’s?

    And while the U.S needs over a trillion dollar to get things back in order? The rest of the modern world out there has nuclear bombshelters.

  60. So you’re joining him in willingness to die for KGB gang “Ozero” in Kremlin, because “it’s all US fault and Putin has no choice…”?

  61. For the matter at hand Russian unchanging traits have been described the same way by explorers, human nature observers and historians since first discoveries in 16th century, including known Russian writers.

  62. What you’re saying is like: the US does not have nukes to retaliate against its enemies??
    The US has THOUSANDS OF NUCLEAR WARHEADS READY TO BE LAUNCHED.
    Of all countries of the world is Russia the ONLY ONE with nukes??
    You gotta be SMOKING POT!!

  63. Turkey is not instigator of the conflict.
    Russia was poking into NATO’s airspace and waters in Baltics, in Scandinavia, off Alaska, in ME times and again with drones, planes, submarines, ships… Putin is in the wrong, and like with Ukraine, unleashed mega-propaganda-campaign. All those brigades of Kremlin trolls jam-packing Western blogs with “Nazi Ukraine” howling are now on the next job to shriek about Turkey, next enemy of choosing.
    Assad and ISIS are frenemies and Kremlin has been selling arms to both for 4 decades.
    NATO doesn’t have to do anything because Putin will be only punishing own population, banning all products Turkish, recalling students, prohibiting Russians from travel to Turkey, closing mutual scientific projects etc.
    The other thing that Kremlin needs these theatrics going so who is next “enemy” on the list?

  64. Well if what you just stated is true!…—-Then you are really a much much much much much much much much much much much much much much much much bigger moron–Your education level is way beneath most American’s! AND MUCH LESS THAN ME! HA LOSER MAGGOT TRASH WANNA BEE!

  65. What did Nuland offer? A handful of cookies in exchange for Ukraine’s bankruptcy? Where is that US gold Ukraine needs so badly now? Back in the USA while Ukraine in bathing in its own dirt. Was it a wise choice for Ukraine?

  66. Da, I really do understand that idiots like you, Ivan, who listen to Vlad the Pootin (sheet in a can) should put down your bottle of Vodka, sober up, look at the light of day without squinting and join the rest of the world trying to make this planet a better place.

  67. Silly article. The IL-80 Maxdome first flew as a strategic airborne command post back in the 1980. The Russians also operated IL-22s as airborne command posts from the 1970s onwards. This is simply an upgrade of the IL-80 and the airborne command posts that they have had like the US for decades.

  68. That is typical view of lunatics. The carriers are very useful and proven tools for harassing poor undeveloped nations in which the US excels. They are mountain of scrap as regards Russia.

  69. “Russians can not stand being treated nicely.
    “When treated with kindness they start decomposing like sausage in the sun.
    All their history they harm themselves.
    It’s hard to imagine anything that Russians wouldn’t endure.
    They don’t mind everything to be taken away from them.
    They can be made to wash their faces with sand….
    Nevertheless, Russians are terribly jealous.
    If one is tortured and tormented before death, while other is simply sentenced to death, the first will be consumed with jealousy that the second got lucky… ”
    Vladimir Yerofeyev, 1938-1990, Russian writer.

  70. Are you really don’t understand? OK I will explain it again for idiots like you..
    America is making unbearable conditions for Russia, NATO expansion, ISIS supporting , Ukraine coup etc.. There is may be some moment that Putin has no choice to swith the button.. Yes, it will mutual destruction. But anyway it will not just destruction of Russia, got it now?

  71. America will burn in 1 Hour…. So as you read this, don’t weep for
    America. The America we grew up in, the America we thought we were
    fighting to establish for Him, has long been gone.

  72. “…People really need to stop saying stupid things like ‘turn ’em into a parking lot’….”

    What people?
    Russia’s been boasting about nukes, threatening other countries.
    See article above.
    See avalanche of articles from Russia bragging about its nuclear capabilities.
    See Russian blogs jam-packed with ideas to “nuke” (___) fill in blank space with changing “enemies” of Russia: USA, NATO, EU, Ukraine, now Turkey….
    It’s Russian TV News boasting publicly about “turning USA into radioactive dust” – not American TV or China’s or even N. Korea’s TV.

    Why don’t you appeal to correct audience then and ask them to “stop being so simple”?

  73. Sorry. Normally it isn’t a big deal when one uses figures that are a year old, but given that its Russia, that can be important!. thx

    So, Russia is even WORSE off

  74. ? ??????? ?? ???? , ????? ?? ??? ??? ??????, ?? ? ???? ??? ?????? ? ?????? ???????… ?? ?????? ??? ??? 12 ???, ?? ??? ? ?? ?????????????? ? ???? ??????.. ?? ??????? ??????? ??? ??????, ?????? ??????? ??? ??????, ????????? ?? ????? ? ?????? ?? ??????, ?????? ? ?????? ? ??. ?? ?????? ?????? ?????? , ???? ? ?????????? ????????.. ??????, ? ???? ?? ???? ?????????, ???????? ?????? ?????? ??? ????????? ????????????? ? ??????????, ???? ?? ????? ???? ? ? ?????? ???, ? ??? ??? ??? ????????)))) ?? ?? ?????..? ?????? ?????. ???? ?? ?? ????????????? ???? ??? ???????, ?? ?? ?? ???????????? ? ???????????? ??????? ?????????, ? ?? ????????? ?? ?? ??????? ? ??????, ??????? , ??????? ??, ? ???????????? ????? ????????????? ??????????. ???? ???? ?? ??? ?????, ?? ??? ?? ???. ? ???? ???????? ????????????? ???????, ????????? ?????????? ????, ? ??????? , ????? ????, ??? ?? ?? ??? ???????? ???? ??????. ? ???? ??? ? ?????? ????? ??????????????.

  75. FSB, actually. The threat is more real than you think. People really need to stop saying stupid things like ‘turn ’em into a parking lot’. It offends G-D, and won’t go well for us (read: massive loss of life) even if we technically ‘win’. Please stop being so simple.

  76. GDP of Western Alliance: $40 trillion, population : 800 million…Russia GDP $1.7 trillion population 140 million (both numbers shrinking)

    Yep, Russia is SUCH a threat!!

  77. What Pootin REALLY fears:
    GDP of Western Alliance: $40 trillion, population : 800 million…Russia GDP $1.7 trillion population 140 million (both numbers shrinking)
    Yep, Russia is SUCH a threat!!

  78. Actually with our Trident III ICBM’s, Ohio class Boomers, and Aegis destroyers there is a good chance we could win a nuclear exchange with Russia with acceptable losses from our side.

    The odds of our winning (if you can call it that) are nearly guaranteed if we were the ones to start it. I don’t see that happening but you never know. The Bush Doctrine states that we reserve the right of “preemptive defense” should the homeland be under credible threat.

    Betcha this author is real glad she’s not credible right now…

  79. “To me, the main trait of mental retardation, if you care to check, is one liners”.
    What would I be checking? What your impression of one liners is? Are you a mental health professional? Your comment is inherently divergent and circular. Btw, this website is populated by highly stupid correspondents paid to publish propaganda by either the Soviet give or Chinese govt, depending on which day it is.
    And, it is very difficult to be funny…just like you find it difficult to sound intelligent!

  80. Putin is damn, DAMN lucky we don’t take this nonsense seriously. If we did that would be a very bad thing for Russia.

    The people penning this drivel would be wise to remember the Bush Doctrine. A preemptive strike is justified and should be expected if there is a credible threat to the US homeland.

    I’d hope that we would issue a warning first like we did in Iraq & Afghanistan. Give the Ruskies a chance to remove Vlad and clean up their own house.

  81. Putin is nothing more then a dictator who is slowly eliminating freedoms in his own country by whipping up angry at America. Lot like Hitler did with the Jews.

  82. They have programmed 2 generations of Americans with electronic noise so now they can now operate in the open, and the American sheep just keeps looking into his/her phone.

  83. You are correct; years of spoon feed nationalist propaganda has Americans believing it cant happen here, it can, and it most likely will.

  84. Anyone out there remember M.A.D. ?????? it stands for Mutually Assured Destruction and is the very reason why most people with at least half a brain believe that Russia and the USA will never launch nuclear bombs. They have enough to eliminate us and we have enough to eliminate them, simple math that is called M.A.D. Yes it’s M.A.D.ness for the USA and Russia to go to nuclear war.

  85. USA forces in Ukraine already. They building precedent for greater future presence there. That is an existential threat to Russia. They might just decide to put a brake on it by standing up with a tactical nukes in Turkey or somewhere else.

  86. We the USA have an out here. We can simply say, Turkey was financing ISIS by purchasing STOLEN oil from ISIS therefore they are OUT of NATO or NATO will not defend anyone who finances terrorism. Simple and a no brainer. Why on earth would we lose New York for Istanbul???? Not gonna happen. I just hope that Obama has the KAH-Ho-Nez to do what I just wrote.

  87. This Polina Tikhonova article is always in favour of Russia and never balance or been objective in her reportage, For the avoidance of doubt, Russia can’t get anywhere if war should be out betwwen them and entire NATO, so Russia should take note

  88. I think it has a little more to do with our bases in the backyards of people who no longer want us there and the corporate masters of our Government who will risk your life to maintain their way of life.

  89. LOL this is a total Propaganda website. American’s SLBM’s Trident 2 will wipe Russia out also UK has the same Trident missiles they will launch.

  90. If the answer is NO than there is strategic advantage on the Russian side in this “game”, because for Russia the answer is YES they can use nuclear weapon if conflict is escalated and Russia will perceive itself right. That means if Turkey will attack Russian forces in Syria while USA deploy greater forces in Ukraine or Georgia, Russia just might decide to respond with nuclear tactical strike against target of convenience, such as Turkey. NATO will not retaliate militarily out of fear to be destroyed itself. My scenario is not that far fetched. USA forces already in Ukraine and Turkey is supporting opposite side in Syria. USA forces in Ukraine is like Russian nuclear weapons in Cuba. USA was ready to start nuclear war over it, so is Russia too At least the chance of it is not zero.

  91. If Putin thinks he is invincible, he should learn from the likes of Adolf Hitler as he will
    suffer same fate. I strongly suspect Turkey isn’t the main target, they
    are just a bait being used to lure America out

  92. You all don’t know what war does to a country or the strife and level of Economic degradation it brings, not to mention Hunger. You all will be affected and even your generations to come…. Be careful what you wish for..

  93. LET’S SEE WHO HAS THE BETTER OF THE DEAL. IN A MANUAL WAR CHINA IS THE ONLY ONE THAT COULD WIN BECAUSE THEY WOULD BE WILLING TO KILL MULTI MILLIONS OF IT’S OWN PEOPLE

  94. Hilarious BS article. Where do those genious Russians plan to land their plane after Russia is incinerated along with the rest of the world? ROFL. Polina you just get better every day

  95. according to putin you do want to die, any nuclear war will end will end humanity even if you only nuked turkey. once a nuclear war starts their is no end except for humanity – which includes china and russia

  96. This isn’t a game like most think. There is our sign along with many more Putin has given , that should be taken seriously by America and our western allies .. The common person is subject to disbelieve and dissociation due to the horrific results a 3rd world war would produce. So they make all kinds of delusional statements to protect their sanity. Like what is below this post.

  97. u.s. is the only country that walks the talk. tired of russia and china talkign so much s , i wanna see them be involved in multiple world spanning conflicts and not break a sweat like the u.s., then i’ll believe some of this drivel.

  98. The American people don’t want war with Russia either! In fact 96% of what our government does is against the peoples wishes. We have no problem with Russia anymore, it’s not the 1950’s anymore. Besides as the day’s go by we are gaining more and more respect for Putin. My personal opinion is that Obama is a greater enemy to the U.S. Then Russia could ever be…

  99. Who payed for the NEW NATO building in NY? US
    Who is ALWAYS the one to bail out other countries when shit goes down? US
    Where is NATO when other nations having disputes?
    NOW tell me HOW us has NATO by the leash?
    The US is ALWAYS policing the world and THIS needs to stop!

  100. The planet is no longer dominated by nation states but by multinational mega corporate cartels. Most of you are falling for the nationalistic divide and conquer while the plutocrats control the puppet strings on all sides.

  101. Tikhonova’s comments are asinine and irresponsible drivel.
    She would do better to conform to the origin of her name (tikhaya = quiet) and shut up.

  102. You’re also assuming the ultra rich oligarchs are capitalists…they are not they want a neo feudal system to replace it of master and slave castes with the .001% getting all the high tech and luxuries. They have already started a breakaway society.

  103. you dont get it….the ultra rich already eg rockefellers, british/dutch royals, thyssens, krupps fords etc have all the money the money and wealth they could want….their main goal is power and control of the human population now and keepingthe life extension high tech to themselves. They have robots to do the work now and dont want humans in general. Their endgame is to start wiping out most of humanity for robot slaves.

  104. Ren, just about the same price that the supporters and trolls from Israel is getting paid to produce and spread Israel’s BS, lies, spin and propaganda.

  105. Carl, while I do agree ,just remember one thing, even animals will fight back when cornered or pushed to hard . It is not about how sane, brilliant or smart Putin is or isn’t, this is more about other countries trying to bully or push Putin and Russia around with all of these different types of threats that is and has been placed towards both Putin and Russia. Especially from the Western Media (which is very bais) toward both Putin and Russia,while playing the blame game and by blaming Putin and Russia for every little thing that takes place and trying to make it look like it is either Putin’s or Russia’s fault no matter what it is . That only works for a little while, before most people begin to figure it out and see all of the holes in the different stories ( propaganda ) being sent out by the Western Media.

  106. wow, have you been there in the US? I’ve been there and most of them are gay and fat. You like the US even if you are a muslim? do you know that they don’t like you

  107. I heard Donald duck is gay. gays only understand getting rear ended not politics. so stay out of it. And I know you don’t like women by your comments.

  108. are you crazy Russia can single handedly destroy the world with their nukes no country in their right mind will challenge Russia in an all out war. The problem with Russia is they tolerate NATO and the US undermining their domain. If I were Russia I would have nuked Turkey, down US F22s, F16, and torpedoed US ships just to test if US want their country to get destroyed.

  109. yeah and half of Turkey belongs to Armenians and Half to the Greeks. Turks need an ass spanking not support. US leaders need to be smart and strong not give in to Homicidal maniacs like Turks. Anybody seeing that Putin is wrong need their head checked, because Russia not only protecting their people but stopping killers that are supported by Turkey, your so called Ally.

  110. you don’t know what Russia has for technology, talking like that you sound ignorant. unlike USA Russia doesn’t show off its technology until its needed and then its too late for your a**

  111. Multinational corporate cartels run the planet….they want all nations destabilized for a one world fascist corporate slave state.

    They also want to reduce population several billion

  112. when Russia Nukes those f-ing turks that would be the happiest day of my life. the best retribution for the Armenian Genocide.

  113. This article is not factual as you think.It’s one-to-hundred facts.What is happening is only a game,high-risk game! Somebody needs to be reminded that no one has the monopoly of pulling the strings,because there is always a backlash.Think about this!

  114. Putin has being provocating for soo long and non stop provocations all over with the hope of an answer to finally destroy the planet and to be the eternal (according to his imagination he is inmortal) communist zar but in real fact he is being always Fidel puppet who feed him with haitress to Europe, and Usa, with pathetic “romantic” passed glory and heroism, and establishing any possible conflict for. I new this will gonna happends since January 26 1999 by their mouth. Good bye life or scuba dive in the esclavism back again. Now, also is a fact that his happiness and excitement makes me vomit

  115. Personally I wouldn’t mind if Russia nuked Turkey. Meanwhile, stay away from New York city … and not because of Russia but because it is every terrorist’s favorite target.

  116. U.S.A. is not a homosexual country,to say that is to generalize.This really show the level of your intelligence.Please, deal with facts and not assumptions1

  117. very inaccurate hypothesis…. youre putting NATO in this scenario, but then focus on the US. Russia would have to account for all the Nato members if they we’re to start a nuclear war. England has always been the US’s strongest Ally I’m sure they wouldn’t just sit there and watch.

  118. There’s another factor at work — the US could face a multi-front conventional war — Russia and China — which the US would not be able to handle, and then the “doomsday” choice switches over to the US.

  119. If Russia can why all the hype and hoopla do it. Germany had the most advance weaponry during the 2nd world war but defeated to shame. Russia if it starts shall follow suit

  120. a lot of but hurt gay Americans here and American wannabees who can’t accept the truth that Russia can annihilate their fat gay ugly buts

  121. Patriots are old, unintelligent garbage. US can’t even stop the mexicans, Haitians, Cubans going to the US how do you think the US can stop Russian missiles. In your wet dreams

  122. If your ICBM can land it’s target but while Russia’s ICBM still in it’s trajectory in space, Patriots and other missile interceptor based in Alaska, Guam and Japan will intercept that missile and “BOOM” Mr . Putinoid’d missiles are gone.

  123. US navy are incompetent they are only good at bow ning each other and gay pride parade China’s sub are much more advanced, better equipped and better man power

  124. indeed that should be. because THAT is what they can’t stand. no one pays attention to the crap they produce. No one wants a war, atomic or other one.

  125. 1.Neither US or Russia or any country with nuclear capabilities are crazy/stupid enough to drop any nukes.
    2.Turkey dropped Russians plane because those planes were bombing oil convoys that were bringing illegal oil from Syria to Turkey.
    3. Turkey is trying to hide behind nato. But nato coutries not sure are really willing to get into that messhe especially because a lot of them are not on too friendly terms with Turkey.
    4. Turks are not that stupid they haven’t fought in any wars for years they just fight behind the scenes and profit from conflics. They have have something up their sleeve. By bombing the plane they lost about 60% of their tourism(Russians). Many real estate and business ivestors who are also Russians. Billions and billions of revenue lost from the Russian pipeline. Most likely they have much better offer from somewhere else that they would risk loosing so much revenue.
    5. Not big fan of Putin but the latest military conflicts he was involved in he came up on top. Crimea still a mess but he took it back. Just fyi Crimea used to belong to the Turks.
    6. Not big fan of Obama but he is the president of this great country I call home. So I do pray for him that God gives him wisdom not to run us into a deeper hole.

  126. They also got some cows in Iraq comrade. What do you make over there? A buck fifty a day? Are you cute.You can earn $20 an hour over here. The HARD way. Bend over baby or on your knees bowing to the master.

  127. As long as lines of communication are available. I doubt they would be. Their satellites will be gone within 5 minutes. Maybe they have wires from the plane connecting to the ground troops. Like those old tin cans on strings huh?>

  128. North Korea and Iran? Really? What are they going to do fly a bomb the size of house over and drop it on us? And don believe for a single minute that China will automatically side with you comrade. Pakistan would be very smart to sit it out as well. Joining up is dangerous in nuclear war if you choose the wrong side. There may be no winners in this scenario but I can guarantee the USA WOULD NOT LOSE.

  129. Still sorry for you. This is none of my business because both is not my country.
    I repeat I know history and I don’t need wikipedia.
    The war was over and nobody has to surrender. But US (Home of cowards) still use the nuclear weapon against JP.
    NOTE: US is the only country that has been in war for long and until now still fighting war. Because the past is hunting America and you people don’t feel safe anymore.
    Don’t bother to reply. I am removing my ID from this group because I can see people like you are moron.
    I won’t see your reply lol….don’t waste your time just accept it

  130. You are a fool. The US used nuclear weapons on Japan because the Japanese would not surrender and an invasion would have cost many American lives. If the Japanese had invaded the US it would be the same way. Every American on our soil would fight to the death.

    As far as weaponry goes, the US has outspent the world for over 50 years in this area. We have FAR MORE weapons that other countries know nothing about. Ask the Russians or even the British why the X37b, the mini space shuttle that has been in continuous orbit for over 2 years, has been transferred from the budget of NASA and is now paid for by our military. It is a space weapon most likely equiped with the rail gun that could knock out multiple targets within minutes.

  131. The latest in a long line of bullshit articles based on dogshit journalism. Clearly it’s planted content from the Russian propaganda machine. Each article from this silly girl gets dumber in its assertions.

  132. they should not have to, the middle class that is, something I used to belong till got rather horribly mauled by by 3 rhodesian ridgeback dogs and went from working 60 hrs plus a week,( I really loved my job) ,to not being able to tie my shoes hardly.
    I worked for a famous pest control company for almost 15 years, helped build it to what it is now, bottom line I paid into the system for what I draw on ssdi now, which isnt much as you would think it would be with the hours I worked…but anyways its plain and simple…the ” lock box” which was promised by congress to hold our paid collected wages has been stolen. again.
    I believe this is called generational theft….the end of the baby boomer generation is being robbed blind after putting the money in through our taxes to fund it.. pray to God as the end of what we know is very near….” THE ONLY CONSTANT IN LIFE IS CHANGE ” gg

  133. The answer is NO but it ain’t that simple. Will we allow Russia to run amok over its neighboring countries just because we want to avoid conflict? NO also. See how it gets complicated. You don’t let a bully be a bully just because you want to avoid conflict. Especially when you know you could kick the bully’s azz.

  134. This article is complete garbage. Putin is a sane and brilliant man and not so eager to start a nuclear war as he knows the consequences would be devastating for all involved.

  135. I can give you one. They nuke Turkey causing millions of civilian deaths. I just do not see western society standing for that.

  136. Economics will not matter if Russia attacks a NATO state. when there is no world there is no world economy. Economics go out the window with Nuclear Destruction. As for Ukraine, yes we saw. they decided to go west as we got the money and the better way of life. Russia did not like it so they invaded their foreign sovereign neighbor. That is not acceptable. So STFU about preaching. You offer an opinion that does not jibe. People follow the money in this world. Leaders of countries all over this globe do so as well. Russia offers no money but threats of force and invasion. H3ll, they have threatened Switzerland even.

  137. Lol, “Turkish capital of Istanbul”

    The Turkish capital is Ankara, not Istanbul. Typical female journalism!!!

    EDIT: Maybe you should stick to your day job and practice taking more seductive selfies for your customers!

  138. I truly believe the X37b is the latest version. A mini space shuttle equipped with the rail gun laser capable of knocking out all enemy satellites including communication, defense and launched nukes. If that is the case, Russia would be quaking in their boots after launching an attack and seeing it fail. There is a reason it started as a NASA project but is now completely budgeted by the military.

  139. ……like our buddies the Canadians, that just after their new Premier took office, he pulled out of the middle east and Spain pulling out right after the sub-way bombing. El Cid is rolling over in his grave for the Spanish Governments kneeling before the Moors again.

  140. The Xb-37, the miniaturized space shuttle that has continuously circled the Earth in orbit for well over 2 years now was transferred from NASA to the military budget. My guess is that thing has either of 2 mission capabilities. Possibly both. One would be it sidles up next to any satellite and instantly renders it useless including those controlling an enemies military capabilities. The other and it could be this combined to accomplish the first is the rail gun. Instantaneously, as that thing can fire very quickly, it just knocks out all satellites including guidance, communication and military of an attacking country. There are specific reasons why it has been up there for well over 2 years and is now part of the Defense budget.

  141. Where is all that US gold when Ukraine needs it so badly? The money allocated by the US for the coup had been spent long ago. Ukraine is next to bankrupt. Did it choose wisely?

  142. The Xb-37, the miniaturized space shuttle that has continuously circled the Earth in orbit for well over 3 years now was transferred from NASA to the military budget. My guess is that thing has either of 2 mission capabilities. Possibly both. One would be it sidles up next to any satellite and instantly renders it useless including those controlling an enemies military capabilities. The other and it could be this combined to accomplish the first is the rail gun. Instantaneously, as that thing can fire very quickly, it just knocks out all satellites including guidance, communication and military of an attacking country. There are specific reasons why it has been up there for well over 2 years and is now part of the Defense budget.

  143. Olga dear. All the US did was influence Ukraine because as they say here in the good land, Money talks and bullchit walks. Would anybody in their right mind want to side with the guy that has the gold (USA) or the guy that offers dirt (Russia). Most intelligent people go where the money is. That is why Ukraine was open to what Nuland had to offer

  144. Somebody tell Putin and Zhirinovsky to add Santa’s workshop at the North Pole to their target list. This will really piss people off.

  145. First we will shoot them out of the air and then Moscow will be history if Obama is out of office by then. If not, we are all doomed.

  146. Just makes you wonder what the next year holds for the world. We have a lunatic in the Kremlin and a pussy in the White House. Just the right ingredients for the world to suffer.

  147. You are as ph ucking stupid as the chick that wrote this article. US nuclear subs will unleash every nuke aboard and there will be no world left period.

  148. Another daily KGB funded propaganda post from our friend Ms. Tikhonova. Yahoo – please – how much are you getting paid by value walk?? Maybe you can get more from National Enquirer? The stuff they publish has more truth than this. Please – make it stop!

  149. If Russia unleashes a nuclear attack on any country on this Earth it will be signing its death knell. The governments of the world will not stand for any country going nuclear and killing 9 million people, many civilians, as this nutbag chick speaks of.

  150. Yeah then you can be ruled by the civilized and peaceful Islamic State and the other great inhabitants it brings over after every NATO country is destroyed. Better start catching up in your Quran readings!!!

  151. Yes, we know.
    Chechnya invaded and bombed itself.
    Georgia invaded itself.
    Russia was messing in Ukraine every day for 25 years, but finally Ukraine decided to invade itself and annex its territory.
    Syria is bombing itself.
    Turkey flew bombers loaded to bomb its civilian villages right on its own border.
    We know the story.

  152. The events in Ukraine started when the US via Nuland messed in the country, so it’s the US that is rallying the world against Russia.

  153. It’s not the balls you need to start a war, it’s the brain you need not to start one. NATO (+US) seems to have all the balls but no brain.

  154. Yes, Alex, we all know that Russia is a country of slaves. Always have been.
    You didn’t notice that Russia became like North Korea and Iran?
    But “trying to play the war game with Russia”…???
    Who invaded Ukraine, the most peaceful, largest wholly in Europe country?
    Who’s been provoking for many months sovereign airspace and waters of NATO countries? Who was warned by Turkey on repeated violations of their airspace that they wouldn’t tolerate it any longer?
    Who is bombing a living Hell out of Syria?
    Who is boasting about nukes every day?
    Obama is by far most pro-Kremlin President of the USA ever – and look at you, you just don’t know whom to invade, whom to threaten and to set on fire!
    What are you going to do when somewhat less pro-Kremlin President is in USA?

  155. you do realize when it comes to an all out war, we are talking about the US as a country, right?
    so your crazy views don’t apply here!

  156. Name (1) MD/surgeon who has good penmanship or constructs a proper sentence. Who do you want changing your heart out if you need it? And English prof, or my father or I? We have BOTH been on the cover of Time. And no, I did not have to write the story! Try calling a liberal arts gay major next time you hit the (or) HA! Again, you are either an over weight female or a gay male posing as a female. You are so busted, trash! Your gayness and fatness are leagues deep! NASTY

  157. Stupid Obama and stupid US government.
    US cannot do nothing with evils like North Korea and Iran. But trying to play the war game with Russia.
    Top US analitics don’t understand that despite Russia’s economy in general sucks, Russia’s military industry not destroyed, the majority of russian people used to be poor and will eat few pieces of potato 3 times a day and a glass of vodka , but/and it will be enough to support Putin

  158. When will you stop publishing That lunatic Tihhonova`s trash which is aimed at sowing fright among readers?Another madman raves: “It is most likely that it will be war,” said Felgenhauer-and this has been written here for several times already.Why?Even Zhirinovsky, who is a well-known war-monger and brawler even in Russia has taken a significant place here in Yahoo News.He is the man who promised to reduce America to a radioactive heap.And such figures have become favorites of Yahoo!

  159. Well then do not watch fat Karen! Cal Berkeley BS/MS Molecular Biology, MD Harvard. I was NOT a liberal arts major like you were. My father and I do heart transplants private client world wide. You are just an insulting disgrace. My classmates have a higher education then you and better schools. If you are so educated, why do you make wild assumptions? Because you are a know it all troll! Probably one of the best I have seen on here! But, you do not fool me. The only painful thing for me was to read your self-aggrandizing, grandiose postings! Why do you not run the world and take over as head of the UN? The world would be such a better place if you were in charge! NOT Take your pathetic assumptions and insults somewhere else. You are either 300 lbs and a heifer, or you are really a gay male. Has to be (1) of the two! Good riddance. How is that for assumptions?

  160. @korneleva:disqus “We”? Who’s we? Russkies trying to blend and have bad amnesia that they forgot who broke the Soviet union? If silk clothed with cheap weapon Afghans crushed Soviet Russia, what will happen if the US and all it’s allied forces combined would do to Russia? Get a clue cyber-stooge.

  161. So far Russia is the only country that broke treaties and initiated war in Ukraine, Syria and soon Turkey. I think Putung is rallying the world against Russia and you paid cyber-stooges better get your multi-language skills ready to yell “I surrender”.

  162. You made the point of the US being a NATO ally so, no, it would be much more complicated than just targetting those coastal areas, certainly would not be as easy as you make out to be, the Russians would be up against US, Britain, France, Germany.., 25 more

  163. Whoever reports stuff like that must enjoy losing all his/her credibility. You’d probably change your name and force yourself into hiding after your last pay check.

  164. Polina, you still look sexy.

    Anyway, Russia is too smart to start a nuclear war.

    And the Turks are a disgusting people, disliked by everyone. If NATO comes to their defense, then the Washington should be overthrown, a la Sadam Hussein.

  165. very factual article, I think it will happen since the NATO and the US are not stopping their greed they want to own every country in the world they want those people to be enslaved using IMF, WB etc. once Russia drop satan on NY, California, UK, Turkey the greedy gays will be defeated and there will be world peace at last

  166. Even worse is if you don’t get vaporized or crushed under your own home and your unlucky enough to survive your worst problems in the history of humanity are yet to come. Not to make light of it but nuclear winter makes the poverty of other countries look great. Well start with radiation poisoning and work our way down to dehydration. And win? Has no one heard WW3 will be fought with missiles and WW4 will be fought with sticks and stones(not the full saying but you get it)??? And that’s a lie. No one would be able to even find a stick or stone to throw. Unless they don’t mind catching some rads

  167. How could I get a job reporting Bull Shyt like this !!!!!! I bet this person writing this get less than $3.50 an hour. Come work on our side and you will get enough to buy yourself lunch and dinner.

  168. There are some crazy people out there.
    If anyone think Russia has the balls to start a nuclear war, you are bat sheet crazy. While YOU may not know how that would end…..Russia does.
    It would not be very pretty.

  169. Are you serious. You got to be out of your rabbit azz mind to write a bull shyt article like this. Russia anit going to drop nothing. NATO will run through Putin. China will sit back and let putin get his azz whoop. You Russian trolls are dich heads.

  170. YOU ARE THE MORON HE WOULD HAVE ENSLAVED THEM JUST LIKE GERMANY WANTED TOO ONLY HE WOULD HAVE DESTROYED THEM IF GIVEN THE ARMIES TO DO IT WITH………PLUS A COUPLE OF ATOM BOMBS DROPPED ON MOSCOW AND MAJOR TARGETS AND BYE BYE REDS!!! WE HAD PATTON TO SWEEP EAST AND MAC TO COME THROUGH THE BACK DOOR BINGO!!! BYE BYE COMMIES!!!

  171. Nice Kremlin propaganda, Polina.
    Very Andropov/Brezhnev-esque.
    All that Western education went to waste on you.

    Next time don’t forget to include a famous screenshot from Russian TV News boasting about “turning USA into radioactive dust”.

  172. Maybe you need to really look at the bigger picture. Russia is the largest country in the world and has a population of 150 million, it has the lowest population density in relation to it’s size and even by any other standard, so how are they being squeezed?. Russia occupies 1/6 of the earth, they have 20 time zones, they are at once Europe and Asia.

    And as for enemies next door, Russia actually shares a border with the United States in the berring straits, along the Aleutian Islands by Alaska, the distance is 55 miles, however there are two islands on either side in the berring straits (Diomede Islands) which are just 12 miles apart and yet not a single incident between US and Russia has occurred in this area of note.

    I do not agree with the shoot down of the Russian SU-25 bomber. Russia had always informed the US of upcoming bombing raids and Turkey should have settled the issue through those same established channels. And as for Erdogan, the President of Turkey getting cocky and things escalating, that is a juvenile statement. He is not stupid.

  173. Does this “woman” even exist? Or is it a creation of vlad? Of course all this is tripe. Russia will be an ash heap and the planet will be obliterated if he takes the course of a meglomaniac. And all this garbage is soviet style propaganda. Amusing. I wish i hadnt wasted the time reading it. File it under forgotten.

  174. You are a moron posting about things you know nothing about. How did you come by the notion the US is ready to go to war with Russia?, Pure silly conjecture on your part. And as for the US broadcasting everything, that is our rich freedom of the press, where even the President has to request time from the major networks and they are not obligated to give it to him.

    The only war preparation the US is making is to fight ISIS.Some more special forces units have been activated. Our 2016 Presidential candidates are running scared from the fallout of the 2003 Iraq war with all saying we should never go to war until attacked or our interests are threatened.

    These so called silent countries of yours that will support Russia, do they have names?, or is that why Georgia, Ukraine, and all the nordic countries are now trying to join NATO?,The biggest financiers of Russian gas and oil fields are US and European banks, some large US and European corporations are also providing equipment, like GE and SIEMENS. We see that daily on both the stock market and US Cnn broadcast ticker. 90 percent of all Russia airlines lease planes from both US and European leasers, Aeroflot is fully 90% planes from Boeing and Airbus. With so much money invested in Russia, it is laughable the US is about to attack Russia. Money does talk and you clearly have no understanding of geopolitics.

    And as for being a pilot and as such you are risking your life by flying, that is more bs from you.. Air travel is the safest form of transportation on the planet according to all statistics provided by the FAA and NTSB. which makes me doubt you are a pilot.

  175. This 2 Bit Reporter always writes these Bad Russia Bullshit Stories. Looked her up yr. ago , She make Less than 9.00 bucks an hour as a Free Lance! LOL Don’t take Her Crap serious!!

  176. Psychopath like you should not mention God in his message. You are as evil as nato. Hope u burn in a car accident. I don’t know what pigs u were born from and I don’t know what Putin or Russians have done to u but I hope u don’t cross my path. I live in Glendale California and I can meet u any place and time of your choice

  177. To polina Tikhonova : Are these information from reliable sources or anonymous sources that are reliable and accurate information or is just what you think as a (Personal Analyzing the news).Reason that moving the long range missiles and test the long range missiles it does not mean they are prepare to attack .I would not say it is Rubbish ,but is kind of Dramatic Analyzing and mostly known as real thread we call it media attack and creating a public panic using the freedom of the Media to send message that are National thread.

  178. Russia maybe ready for war, but it is US neo-cons cabal that is itching for a war with Russia. Oops, just realise – again, some nonsense by amateurish translator dreaming of modeling….

  179. I’ve been reading Polina’s article over the the past few months. Her statements seem to be very one sided on the matter of war. I guarantee the u.s. has military has weapons that are already shelved or mothballed to counter anything Russia has. The u.s. only shows a taste of the arsenal, which still scares the rest of the world. Example, Russia just recentry released their version of a 5th generation fighter jet. The u.s. has had one for almost 20 years. Rail guns, lasers, these are just smoke and mirrors compared to the “secret projects”. Honestly Polina, the budget the u.s puts towards R&D for defense has eclipsed the whole world for 50 years combined. If all out war did break out, God help the Russians. They would only have a prayer to save them.

  180. Duncan, I don’t disagree. I was born in the southern U.S. – There are plenty of pockets of poverty and crumbling infrastructure in the United States too. However, there are plenty of areas of wealth and prosperity in the United States, the likes of which I have never found yet in Russia. I have traveled extensively through western Russia, and have not found ANY region or city that resembles wealth or prosperity. Maybe Catherine’s Palace in Pushkin, or Peter The Great’s summer residence, Peterhof, both outside St. Petersburg. But, these are historical tourist attractions, and not where you typically find even a resemblance of middle American wealth.

  181. This article seems like rubbish to me, wheres the proof ? Putin made it very clear war was not an option , especially nuclear war that would probably end most of life on earth, over what ? one plane shoot down . Did you know people make money when you read there article on the web ? Rubbish . There doesn’t seem to be much deference between humanity, except depending on what culture your born into. Separateness is an illusion lifes better when lived as a family. Eat some pizza and watch a funny movie or something why spend so much time trying to kill one another .

  182. Polina, I hope you renounced your Russian citizenship.
    You’ve never been to Syria, Libya, or other war-torn countries (unlike, say, Anastasia Popova, who made her reports on site under the bullets, and even was wounded in the face).
    She’s a Journalist, you are a sofa warmonger making out conspiracy theories, I wonder who pays you for that.

  183. you’re a bitter, prejudice armenian/traitor ! go back to russia (I’m sure you have cancer in your body)…burn russia/dictator,evil putin !!!

  184. Well, Turkey is an Islamic state and most likely would turn on us and break any treaty with NATO. Are we sure we want to back them up? Aren’t they fighting a proxy war in Syria? Is NATO involved in that? Did they comply with NATO rules to do this?

  185. Did Putin and the Russians forget about MADD, Mutually Assured Destructive Defense. Or is this not taught any more in the day cares???

  186. People should learn to think more in terms of cooperation, diplomacy and empathy. Humanity has great potential, but it’s wasting lots of energy on hate.. it’s not about who is better, or who has bigger military. There are people in USA and Russia, basically same people just speaking different language and having different customs.. There may be some economical / political imbalance causing today’s chaos, but it can only be solved by cooperation and thinking. Do you people realize how much negativity is coming from these news and comments? It’s almost Christmas and we read news like this.. just ignore it and be happy.

  187. It’s time to call out Putin, and give him a modern American military ass-kicking, until he either surrenders or The Soviets are annihilated.
    America does not lose wars!

  188. Half of Russias nukes probably wont launch and the other half would probably fail in flight and land in Russia or the ocean.

  189. Boy, JustMe, reading your entries on your profile, i can see now you have no clue at all, sorry for you, i usually chat with people that have at least an iota of sense…….Bye…

  190. It is right that Nato and USA must not interfere with Turkey suicidal tendency. Let Turkey learnt the
    hard way. Turkey want to be tough see how tough it can withstand a nuke. Like Japan after a nuke it
    becomes a pussy cat- fears of all wars. Hard to believe Erdo cannot save Turkey by saying “SORRY”?
    Actually it is a powerful word no need to save silly “pride” .

  191. Because all russian media is, is a propaganda machine (Soviet Union style). All the real russian journalist wound up dead, killed by the putin’s secret police. Google, why russian journalist who questioned the status quo in russian died under peculiar circumstances.

  192. It is the classic case of the pot and kettle. Turkey shot down a RUSSIAN jet. That is testing Russian resolve. We are not living in a world where we are all afraid of the USA. There are still people who value dignity and culture, and not understanding that is THE serious miscalculation.
    You should probably be talking to your State Department and people like Victoria Nuland, if you want to avoid war. See what happened in Ukraine?
    Quit the preachy mode, please. Beyond a point of reason, nobody can control anyone else. It would be wise to stop pushing people beyond what they say they can tolerate, before you warn others about America’s “resolve”, or “fundamental, bedrock foreign policy”. Everything boils down to economics and you will just draw people into inflicting “unacceptable” damage, if you don’t learn to read properly – simple as that. Foreign policy is just that – foreign policy. When it comes home, you run!
    Bottomline is: I guess a criminal association with Turkey will be to American peril too.
    Peace!

  193. lol, complete lies from this dumb russian propagandista. a degree in journalism from a russian college is a degree in lies. youre as delusional as putin if you think this wont be shot down immediatly lol.

  194. Wow, it seems a lot of people commenting here has no clue what a nuclear war would bring. Just keep on bashing and keep thinking how you are better than them… until there is one then you wish you were dead or wish for a quick death. There are no winners in a war not to mention in a nuclear war. You people have never been in a war. If you have, you would think differently about war, especially a nuclear war that could end all human life if not all life on this planet.

  195. Nice propaghanda. In reality, however, Russian nuclear arsenal will be destroyed within seconds after the last key is turned to start the launch

  196. To me the main trait of mental retardation, if you care to check, is one liners. They say nothing, mean nothing, just like you. Can you hear me now? Impossible, you can’t walk and chew gum at the same time. Sorry, receive my condolences!

  197. Remember the Reagan days? You know….when we were discussing Star Wars ( not the movie ), a laser defense system in space. My father was military, and we got to discussing this years ago. He looked at me with a straight face and said “it is up there, trust me”. My father was never one to joke about his position, so do I think it is up there?……He.l.l. yea

  198. I don’t think it’s about having the balls. I think it’s good judgment not to run into something so drastic causing so many lives. Is it balls that moves someone to kill so many for their own interests?

  199. this is total propaganda! just trying to start something. i love how we only call it propaganda when it’s about Russia’s media.

  200. Another Russian troll. Instead of waging a propaganda war, she would better serve mankind if she wrote about things we all have in common and upon which we could agree like exploring space.

  201. Very nice paraphrase. Oh, unless you actually thought that your comment was a novel idea, then very nice plagiarism…either way, very nice job friend.

  202. It is very sad indeed to read these kinds of articles where people just talk rubbish and don’t think for a moment what that would mean. Stop instigating war…we should be thinking how the f .. we should deal with climate change and here we play Risiko!!!!

  203. Some of the comments from the Russian supporters make me wonder if they really believe that Russia could attack a NATO state without a heavy American response, because they absolutely cannot. It’s fundamental, bedrock American foreign policy and if Russia doubts it, they need new people in their leadership positions because they are placing Russia (and all of us) in grave danger if they do.

    And that’s the real danger – a Russian miscalculation on American resolve, and thinking that the US would not respond to an invasion or attack on Turkey or another NATO member state. I’m not sure how many times America must say it for them to believe it, but an attack on one NATO state is an attack on all and Russia tests that promise at its peril.

    Perhaps the US assumes too much that Russia is aware of this. If it isn’t then it will go very badly for them and, I suspect, for us all.

  204. You need to look at the big picture. Russia used to be a lot larger than it is now when it was the USSR. Now, the U.S. has allies right next door to Russia. It feels it’s encircled. It needs a buffer zone just like the U.S. to have security. If you let your enemies live next door, it will just be a matter of time before something bad happens to you. Like yuri said, would the U.S. tolerate it if Russia is supporting Canada or Mexico militarily? The answer is no. A classic example is the Cuban missile crisis. In response to the issue of Russia violating Turkish airspace, I’m not saying that it did. It likely did not. But for the sake of argument, let’s say that it did. But even so, why shoot it down? It’s not like it was heading deep inside Turkey or posing an imminent threat to Turkey. That area where the plane was shot down probably have nothing of significance belonging to Turkey that could be bomb… well except maybe the illegal oil that was heading towards Turkey. Turkey’s president is getting too cocky because Turkey now has a big brother, NATO, to back it up. If NATO is smart, they need to put Turkey’s president in his place. If they keep supporting him, he will only get more cocky and things will only escalate. Turkey is either too stubborn or too stupid to realize that it there’s a war, Turkey will be the first to be destroyed, even with big brother NATO by its side. It’s just common sense.

  205. I love USA and want to move, and give secrets, to all lovely Amerikan people. I want to hug you, and kiss you too. Oh babay!

  206. lol – I recognized the author of this article before I even saw her name or picture. This little vixen seems determined to goad the whole world into destroying itself, or at least trying to.

  207. Why even bother listen to the beat of the war drum? Russia is a sad, pathetic country. If there is one thing everyone has learned in the past several decades, it is that Russia is all bark and no bite. Putin doesn’t have the balls to pull the trigger. Russia has what nobody wants. If Turkey can stand up to Russia and blow one of their jets out of the sky… anyone can.

  208. I hope the majority of people here don’t think that Russia wouldn’t do this, this all stems from the weakness of Obummer here, let China and Pakistan and N Korea join in and we would be history, don’t laugh…..

  209. Especially we have one tool in the whole country to unlock our nukes, imagine running around the country with that one tool.

  210. Follow the Money
    George Haswani is a well known middleman who operates in Syria , he buys oil out of Syria from ISIS on the commands of Assad and Putin himself to feather there own interests or in actual fact Overseas Bank Accounts . George Haswani is also married to a Relative of Assad’s , the oil is shipped through Turkey and sold on the open market , george Haswani’s, his Businesses in Syria and his Accomplices Bank Accounts have been frozen and are all under investigation for there crimes

    ” Follow the Money ” was in the news just in the last couple of days .
    ValueWalk is not telling the truth
    Polina Tikhonova is a propagandaist and is only trying to boost her sales of the books that she has written

  211. Polina, the author, please get a grip, come out from your bunker that must be 90 meters deep into the Siberian tundra. I hate to clue you in comrade but the simple fact that 99.999999999999999% of the planet realize if the nukes fly WE ALL DIE.

    spasiba comrade

  212. I agree with you, but I don’t think all Germans thought that way. Hitler, like all visionary men balance on a fine line of genius and madness. He also developed a very dynamic personality to lead a nation that was struggling for answers. Like all leadership who can get the masses to drink the Kool Aid, you get the whole nation to move in unison. When that happens it’s amazing the kinds of things you get from that. Science has benefited today from the madness, and from the madness vast amounts of money were made from it. Life gets very interesting when you have to balance the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly that God has given us to make life colorful. We all have to work together in life. Let me ask you a question, would you be the leader that sees a Nuke leveling NYC to say lets not launch since it will lead to madness? Too bad Adam and Eve wasn’t Chinese, at least they would have eaten the snake first, perhaps we would have a different story today.

  213. The US economy is like a ponzi scheme, a house of cards, money is printed out of thin air. Russia has a surplus of money, the US id deep in debt.

  214. Joke!!! Who wrote this ridiculous terrorist article for the dilapidated drunken Russian Terrorist state???? If all else fails, threaten civilized people with terrorism Russia !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  215. I want to say that Turks have no problem with Russians. We have acknowledged you, and respected your power. The problem with you Russians, you think that everyone will bow down to you. Russians have already threatened Turks with “nuclear extinction”, Turks responded with joining NATO and deploying nuclear missiles aiming at Moscow. You are playing with an equal. Turks roamed the lands you call Russia before the word “Rus” existed. Anatolia has never been invaded either. You should let these things sink before you huff and puff yourself up with Russian propaganda. Turkey defeated everyone around them in World War I…. 1 on 1, odds are on Turkey’s side.

  216. Oh, God. Polina the Paranoid is back with her “the apocalypse is coming on Sunday” stories. Someone please inform this nut that America has had three similar planes in the air for decades and we haven’t felt the urge to nuke anyone as a result.

  217. Russia has one little problem. I may have a nice command center, but most of its aircraft and missles (including the nuclear variety) date back to the Cold War. New weapons prototypes have been plagues with manufacturing and QC issues and are highly unreliable. Furthermore, Russia’s military is dwarfed by both the US (#1 globally) and the EU (#2 globally) – yes the EU outranks China. Put #1 and #2 together in NATO and Russia loses any military scenario short of terrorist activities (which they have been known to conduct and finance. Yahoo News and the commentary that fills any article pertaining to Russia seems more and more like it was written by Moscow. It’s a known fact that Yahoo is the #1 social media target of Russian Trolls – Russians forced by the government to write posts and comments 24/7. Just Google “Russian Troll” and you will be astounded at the number of hard news articles covering Russia’s vast effort to influence US social media discourse.

  218. This is the same nuclear war rhetoric that was spread during the cold war, and it was never true. Modern nuclear weapons’ purpose isn’t to kill populations, militarily speaking, that is of very little value. If Russia launched every nuke at insignificant civilian targets, and the United States launched all of theirs at significant military targets, the US would win, because nuclear weapons are only one part of warfare, and their use doesn’t mean complete human annihilation. The US would still have large portions of military present and would use that to win the war. ICBM’s aren’t typically massive warheads that wipe out populations either, they are smaller strategic warheads designed to destroy military installations: silos, command centers, naval fleets, air bases, military bases, military vehicle compounds, and fuel reserves, ect. In the grand picture of war, dropping a bomb on a few hundred thousand civilians isn’t going to win you anything.

  219. The Russians had better be careful cause the USA will surrender to them and they will have to pay
    off Obumas 20 Trillion Dollar debt and feed the 15 million illegal Mexicans in our country

  220. California is like the 7th largest economy in the world, Russias like what 30th? If not for their energy and oil markets they would probably be dead last.

  221. Look up a man named Phil Schneider, he had one of the highest government clearances in the world, we have machines that can crush rocks into powder and trains that can go mach 1, this is underground and we have about 133 underground bases in this country, this is fact and look it up, Phil, was killed by the government for exposing it, John Kennedy is the first president to go down into one of these bases, you should read or hear this man’s story, there’s the black budget that is and unlimited amount of money that we spend on technology and weapons, so let’s not worry about a war, I lived the 60’s where people built bomb shelters cause they were expecting this so called nuclear war, there are other spices that will stop this nonsense!!!!

  222. This is war propaganda to built more guns. This is the same garbage for 60 years now. Fuck the Russians and fuck China and any other country that desires a war against us. All gouging to achieve with this is for us to have an even bigger military budget. Keep at it that instead of the 11 super carriers we will have 15 in few. Nuclear war is an military utopia supported by idiots who think they could sneak a pre emptive nuclear attack without consequences. We will obliterate your country as you wish to do with our. There is no winner in nuclear wars. All this is a consequence of the economic sanctions that are making the Russian economy to crumble as we did in the 80’s. Get out of Ukraine and Syria.

  223. Elder Paisius of the Holy Mountain (Eznepidis, 1924-1994) in the early 90s predicted: “God is satisfied. In this war, everything will come out victorious. The Greek army is a spectator. No return winner. The arena will be Palestine, their grave – the Dead Sea. This will be the first half time. But there will be half a second, and: after these events people come to despair, and then everything will study the Gospel and Scripture. Christ will spare the world and displays a sign for the faith. Then thou shalt seek the unbeliever …

    Thought tells me that there will be many events: the Russian will take Turkey, Turkey will disappear from the map, because one third of the Turks would be Christians, a third die in the war, and one third will go to Mesopotamia.

    The Middle East will become the scene of wars in which will take part Russian. Shed a lot of blood, the Chinese pass the Euphrates River, with two hundred millionth army and reach Jerusalem. A characteristic feature of these events are approaching, will be the destruction of the mosque of Omar, as it would mean the destruction of the beginning of work on the reconstruction of the Jews of Solomon’s temple, which was built on this site.

    In Constantinople, the great war will occur between the Russian and the Europeans, and shed a lot of blood. Greece will not play in this war, the primary role, but it will give Constantinople. Not because Russian shall fear the Greeks, but because the best solution is not found … The Greek army, do not have time to go there, as the city will be given to her.

    The Jews, because they will have the strength and assistance of the European leadership, obnagleyut and behave shamelessly and proudly, and try to control Europe …. They will build a lot of machinations, but a persecution that followed, totally united Christianity. However, do not be united as they want those who are satisfied with the various machinations of a global “association of churches”, wanting to be at the head of one religious leadership. Christians unite, because in the present situation happens Department sheep from the goats. Then realized in practice, “one flock and one shepherd …

  224. Do you people in USA really want to push Russia over if there is 1% chance of nuclear war?

    If I was a bad guy I wouldn’t dare to harass a stranger if there were 1% chance he could shoot me. Period.

    I am not talking about who is right or wrong, which is debatable at best.. Just simple yes or no decision about your own life.

  225. If that will happen, then let the exchanging of nuclear bombs begin! With all NATO’s key nuclear armed European countries combined with the US. Small Russia country will turn into ashes.

  226. Putin is not about personal wealth. It does not even matter if he worth 70B or even 500B. He see himself as czar and a historical figure.

  227. America will erase Russia from the world map; This plane s good, if there is anything left to command after America Nuke Russia.

  228. America is trying to kill Russia by thousand cuts. Ukraine is like Canada for the USA. Now Imagine Putin got influence in parts of Canada, that made Canada to turn on the USA. So the game USA plays in Ukraine is dead serious. The chance of Russia of using nuclear weapon is greater than zero against Turkey or other state that enter military confrontation.

  229. The U.S. has weapons that are not made public, so there’s no way of truly knowing what we have because our technology is far ahead of what the general public knows about, do you really think that we are going to make public what we really have and yes it is alien technology too, we have rods in space that can disintegrate whole areas, it’s kinetic energy, while you are counting nuclear warheads we have weapons that you never heard of!!!!!!!!

  230. You’re uneducated if you think all Americans live in trailers. That’s like me saying: All Russians enjoy child love and drink vodka.

  231. Yet, California has a bigger and better economy than Russia. Google GDP nominal of California and Russian GDP nominal. Russia has 140 million people and California has 40 million people. That’s pretty pathetic. Hence, a middle class person in California would be rich if they sold their home and moved to Russia. Let’s look at the reality: Russia is a Third World Country.

  232. This website is absolutely retarded. Every day they post a new article on some world war 3 scenario between the US and Russia. Russia isn’t going to do anything regarding nuclear strikes. It’s almost as if this website’s authors are wishing for a nuclear war.

  233. Ooooo… scary. More veiled commie threats.
    As if we haven’t heard them on an almost daily basis for almost two full generations.

    Your little friend over in North Korea shovels out infantile bile like this almost every day, but at least NK’s stuff is more direct and humorous.
    This stuff, however… yawn.
    It just doesn’t scare us anymore, and hasn’t since 1962.

    Both sides know that an attack on NATO could easily escalate into a really, really bad
    afternoon for everyone and everything over most of the planet. Historically,
    generals and leaders on both sides were smart enough to know this.

    For all of our sake, let’s all hope they still do, even if the Russian propaganda machine likes to pretend they don’t.

  234. Yet, the US State of California has a bigger and better economy than Russia. And California does this with 40 million people. Even Texas has passed the Russian economy. You or Russia is in no position to argue about facts. Because if I gave you facts, you would cry. Hence, Russia is a Third World Country. You have 150 million people and California surpassed your economy with 40 million people??? That’s pathetic…

  235. Russia would cease to exist if it launched an attack on the USA. The USA built a Nuclear Triad on purpose: Land, Sea, and Air. Also, the USA has more Nuclear subs at sea than Russia. The UK could defeat the Russian Navy. The Russian Navy is a joke. When was the last time the Russian Navy sent a fleet around the world??? Never, right??? Russia can only send a few ships out before they start breaking down. The Russian Navy is a joke.

  236. In 1999 Serbs believed Russia would go into a war with USA/NATO because of them. In 2008 Georgians believed USA/NATO would go into a war with Russia because of them. Both were wrong. Now, I really don’t know what is going on behind the curtains, but can guarantee that those two will never really go into a full-scale war against each other (just to clarify…I’m not talking about Serbia and Georgia here :)). The reason is simple. Such a war would have no winners and both sides understand that. So relax. There will be a war of words, secret negotiations, concessions etc. but everything will be settled down. On the expense of the “small ones” of course.

  237. This article never mentions the 14 Ohio Class Subs that the US Navy has. Or the 50+ nuclear bombers that the USAF has.

  238. It’d be easier for Russia to survive because of how large and vast their land mass is, compared to the majority of other countries of the world.

    I think I read or heard some time ago, that the U.S. would fit 10 times in Russia’s single land mass alone.

    That’s a TON of land, where the majority of it would and may still be habitable, GOD FORBID, if there would be a nuclear war.

  239. Polina Tikhonova doesn’t know what she’s talking about. She’s a bona fide Russian propagandist. She copies and pastes everything. Look at her article. This article never mentions the 14 Ohio Class Subs that the US Navy has. Or the 50+ nuclear bombers that the USAF has.

  240. 2015 – Turkey strikes down Russian Plane
    2016, January – Day After New Years Eve – Russia Strikes Turkey with a nuclear Blast
    2016 – January – Nato Responds against Russia
    2016 – January – United States stays on the side lines

    2016 – January – America is decimated
    2016 – January – Australia is still standing but they all die a slow death from the fallout
    2016 – January – It’s finally over..

  241. Polina Tikhonova doesn’t know what she’s talking about. She’s a bona fide Russian propagandist. She copies and pastes everything. Look at her article. This article never mentions the 14 Ohio Class Subs that the US Navy has. Or the 50+ nuclear bombers that the USAF has.

    A single Ohio Class Sub could take out 40% of the Russian population in a first strike. Yet, the US Navy has 14. Also, a single B-52 carries 16 nuclear tipped cruise missiles on pylons under the wings. Yet, the USAF has 50 of these nuclear platforms. Along with 19 B-2 Stealth Bombers. And yes, each B-2 Stealth Bomber can carry 20 B-83 nuclear warheads in its weapons bay. And B-83 warheads are rated @ 1.2 megatons each which means: B-2 Stealth Bombers carry 20 megatons per a plane. That’s 20 Russian cities destroyed per a single plane. IMHO, planes will play a clean up role on Russia after the Minuteman 3s and Trident 2s level China and Russia.

  242. If this gonna happen this way, please Russia do it as soon as possible. Humans are like a plague and too selfish. They never deserved to live on this beautiful planet.

  243. While I believe and think that the U.S. and NATO would EVENTUALLY win the war on and against Russia, there’d be HUGE losses on ALL sides, and, the majority of the world inhabitable, BILLIONS, literally, would perish.

    Let’s remember, though, yes, the U.S. and our allies, NATO, are strong and powerful.

    Let’s NOT become stupid and arrogant, though. Russia has China, North Korea, Pakistan, and Iran, who ALL have nuclear capability to at least a certain extent, also.

    There would be NO winners in this war.

    The world and humanity are in BIG trouble.

    May the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY have Mercy on us ALL.

    In the mean time, prepare, train, lock and load, and, let’s take it to the traitors and Oath Breakers guilty of TREASON in the U.S., also to the muslims and terrorist, and, the new world order globalists / global elite.

    Let’s play!!!

  244. The article sounds like a fear-mongering trumpet which is obviously written with a purpose to intimidate Western world and magnify potentials of Russia, which indeed are very overestimated to much greater extent than they are in real. Suffice is to say that NATO and USA alone is way more superior in technologies and will defeat Russia within few days. Yet, it is typical Soviet-style propaganda and this is why it can’t be taken seriously. The only point that stands ground is of Putin’s inadequacy and thus it might be a serious issue.

  245. While I believe and think that the U.S. and NATO would EVENTUALLY win a war against and with Russia, let’s remember, Russia has their allies that have nuclear weapons, too: Pakistan, China, North Korea, Iran…

    U.S. and NATO vs Russia, China, North Korea, Pakistan, and Iran…

    me, myself and I, for one, am NOT wanting to find out how this goes.

    This would be GLOBAL suicide, and, more than likely, is inevitable and imminent for what will happen…

    “If you underestimate your enemies and their capabilities, you end up dead!!!”

    The world and humanity as a whole are in BIG trouble!!!

    And, who’s to say, exactly, that Russia indeed flew into Turkish airspace?! It’s their word against Turkey’s, and, who’s to say that the U.S. didn’t actually shoot down the Russian fighter jet from Turkey, making it look like it was Turkey, in order to try to start World War 3, or, a nuclear war with Russia, which some are saying will actually be World War 4, because World War 3 has been all of these GLOBAL smaller, proxy wars, and, the “War on Terror,” which is, in EVERY sense of the world, a GLOBAL war, making it World War 3, so, I’d have to agree with those thinking and stating that the war with Russia will be World War 4, and, it will be and is.

    Just some thoughts.

  246. You just total idiot first I am not Mulsim and not from any islamic country.
    Second. I am a Pilot and I risk my life taking idiot like you around the world and still you can’t understand anything.
    All your comment make no sense and have nothing to do what I wrote.
    For your information. When it comes to history I don’t need wikipedia

  247. It’s USA that invades and topples governments here and there. Eastern Ukraine is Russia. Cremea was is and will be Russia. And Georgia? What is that. We Armenians will send them to hell those traitor mother fkers. I won’t tell u why because u are to cvnt to understand why

  248. But, did Russia REALLY violate Turkish airspace, and, was it REALLY Turkey that shot down the Russian fighter jet, OR, was it the U.S. that shot down the Russian fighter jet, from Turkey, and, made to look like Turkey shot it down, to try to start a nuclear war with Russia, or, start World War 3 with Russia, which, many think, say, and believe that this war will actually be World War 4.

    Just some thoughts.

  249. Yet, this article never mentions Ohio Class SSBN Subs. Yep, the US Navy has 14 Ohio Class Subs. And each sub is armed with 24 Trident 2 SLBMs. Just one Ohio Class Sub could kill 40% of the Russian population. Each sub carries 190+ MIRVs that are housed in 24 Trident 2s. If all 14 attacked Russia, I doubt Russia could sustain any life. Oh, and let’s not forget the 60+ B-52 Nuclear Strategic Bombing force. Anti American Russian articles never mention the other triads of the US Nuclear Forces.

  250. Seriously, dude, you’re NOT even American or Russia, and, you DO NOT know history at all like you think and say you do, based on your name, you’re muslim, and, you’re just as much a threat and enemy as ALL terrorists are, who are ALL muslims, and, the globalists and new world order are our enemies too, they will ALL get what’s coming to them, too.

    Just go away, because you have NO base for your commenting here. You don’t understand what’s going on, other than at your mosque, which is about to be torn down and destroyed.

  251. Firstly, I never watch football. Calling other people names is never a sign of a high IQ. It’s a sad, involuntary display of inferiority. So, knowing that, I forgive you. Now let me educate you a little bit, my dear.

    So what if they have a few cruise missiles? I never said that they didn’t have any functional advanced weaponry, only that it won’t be long before they can no longer be utilized due to the collapse of the Russian economy, and the resulting deterioration of their military equipment and personnel, (among many other vast problems they have). This is why Putin has been having his nuclear bombers buzz NATO airspace all over the world – because the only force that they can project internationally is with their nuclear missiles and bomber fleets. While Russia has lost exponentially more of it’s military capability, the US has been going in the exact opposite direction.

  252. Ur mother suks just ask all the males around her. And u are not in any position to tell anyone to leave the country. U go whatever ur ancestors came from. Go back to Scandinavia dumbass

  253. Actually, it’s BOTH, the explosion, for those in it’s direct path, and, the fall out.

    That’s the cold, hard facts and truths.

    Anyone within a mile or a little more radius of the blast are vaporized.

    While I believe and think that the U.S. and NATO would EVENTUALLY win in a war with and against Russia, me, myself, and I, for one, DO NOT want to find out how this will turn out.

    Russia indeed poses a legitimate and formidable threat, and, ANYONE with any 2 cents worth of brains and common sense knows this.

    “You underestimate your enemies and their capabilities, you end up dead!!!”

    That’s just the cold, hard facts and truths.

    ANYONE that blindly and naively thinks and believes there’s NO danger or anything to worry about, will eventually become “cannon fodder,” ESPECIALLY those that have their heads buried in the sand, and, aren’t paying attention to what’s going on, or, just don’t care.

    The world and humanity are in BIG trouble.

    May the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY have Mercy on us ALL!!!

    Just saying.

    In the mean time, prepare, train, lock and load, and, let’s take it to our traitors guilty of TREASON, who are ALSO our enemies and threats, equally so, if not more so than the terrorists, muslims, and globalists, and their new world order.

    Let’s play!!!

  254. It’s obvious that Putin’s campaign against the high levels of Russian drunkenness has not gotten through to Tikhonova.

  255. Russia’s SS-18, which is called ‘Satan’ by the Pentagon and NATO, is capable of destroying an area the size of the New York state. The missile carries 10 warheads, each having a force of 750 to 1000 kiloton, while some of these missiles have a single ‘secret’ 20,000 kiloton warhead. To get the idea, that’s 1333 times Hiroshima.

    This was the funniest. 20,000 kiloton warhead??? You mean a 20 megaton warhead??? Also, 20 megatons isn’t 1333 times Hiroshima, lol. And a single Satan ICBM can’t take out New York State, lol. Mirvs on an ICBM are used as a scatter effect. You can’t target a Mirv over long distances. A Mirv was designed to scatter Mirvs around the targeted area. You can’t can’t hit multiple cities with a Single SS-18 that carries 10 Mirvs, lol. Also, New York State has 932 towns and 69 cities, lol. Come on, a single SS-18??? Even when you factor in fallout, that’s not possible. This sounds crazy.

  256. Russia did most of the dirty work. I agree that USA played a very big role to open another front Canada? Australia? Lmao Britain was beaten into piaces by the great Germany military. As I said it was Soviet determination in the battle of Stalingrad that changed the outcome of the war. Russia will always win in any war. At this time your USA government is the aggressor in the world. Putin is a great leader and is making the right moves in every direction. The whole world is behind him. Stop listening to fix news and cnn

  257. ummm so the other states in NATO that have nukes won’t use them if New York is hit? This article is stupid. In a nuclear war there are NO winners. NONE.

  258. You’re NOT even American or Russian, so, go away!!!

    And, your lame, non-intelligent comments, and, your NOT knowing real, true history, causes you to have NO base and NO respect for any of your comments.

  259. Which is actually one of the reasons why the cia had JFK assassinated in the 60s, because he wouldn’t make a preemptive nuclear strike on or against Russia.

    Research THAT, people!!! That’s a cold fact and truth hardly anyone talks about today!!!

    I challenge and implore you to research that, and, there’s a book, I can’t remember the name of it, I actually bought it a while ago, but didn’t read much of it, though I meant to. I have it in storage.

    There’s information in that book as to the REAL reason why JFK was assassinated… scary!!!

    It’s ALL propaganda and agenda, orchestration of and for the new world order.

  260. Zhanna Semenov, code name “Heather McAdams” <—— Delusional commie troll working in the Russian Ministry of Propaganda.

  261. We write otherwise, the plan was shot down over Syria. He was not there I don’t know exactly. But a nuclear attack is silly horror story for you my American friends. Be pease in the world!!!

  262. Everyone with nukes WILL ANSWER–including NUCLEAR NATO.
    Have you thought of that??
    The US has Nukes, Britain has them, also France. The US alone has THOUSANDS of them. Are you so desperate that you wish for MUTUAL ASSURED DESTRUCTION?
    You sound more and more like NORTH KOREA. Either start the war or–better–shut up!

  263. I tried to warn people a LONG time ago, that one day, there’d be a Third World War, and, that we’d be fighting against Russia and China.

    I was laughed at, and called a paranoid, delusional, tin foil hat conspiracy theorist. haha

    Well, NO ONE is laughing NOW!!!

    I love the words, “I TOLD YOU SO!!!”

    Now, go ahead back to sleep, and, bury your coward, sissy heads in the sand, because TOO MANY of you are so blind and naive, thinking that nothing’s going to happen, thinking and believing blindly and naively so, that what’s going on in the world, and in the U.S., is somehow going to fix itself, disappear, or, go away, by simply ignoring what’s going on, pretending like issues don’t exist, because you CANNOT come to grips and terms with what’s going on.

    Well, these things and threats and enemies are NOT going away, NO matter if you simply ignore them, roll over, go back to sleep, and, bury your coward, sissy heads in the sand or not. These things are NOT going to fix themselves, and, they are things that NEED your attention if you have any kind of hope for survival at all.

    WAKE UP!!! WAKE UP!!! WAKE UP!!! WAKE UP!!! WAKE UP!!! WAKE UP!!! WAKE UP!!! WAKE UP!!! WAKE UP!!! WAKE UP!!! WAKE UP!!! WAKE UP!!!

    “If you underestimate your enemies and their capabilities, you end up dead!!!”

    That’s just the cold, hard facts and truths!!! Deal with it, or, continue to ignore it, and, pretend this isn’t happening or doesn’t exist.

    Since the “Cold War,” that entire time we made fun of the Russians and Chinese, with their poor economy, and, not too good of a military, air force, naval fleet, etc., during that whole time, where Russia and China posed and masqueraded around like they were too weak and too poor to do anything, or pose any kind of a threat or anything, they have been preparing, bulking up their militaries, their personnel, weapons, ammunition, other munitions, nuclear missile and war heads stock piling, etc… NOW look at them.

    Russia and China BOTH have come out of NO where over the past few years, with a vast, HUGE military that’s NEVER been seen before, on the world stage by them, and, NOW, the world’s eyes are opened, with raised eye brows.

    NOW, the world’s paying attention!!!

    NO one’s laughing now, other than those that are blind and naive, who are still asleep, or, who have their coward, sissy heads buried in the sand, because they CANNOT and will NOT accept the cold, hard facts and truths.

    “You underestimate your enemies and their capabilities, you end up dead!!!”

    It’s time to wake up, now, and, accept reality, and, deal with, and, come to terms and grips about what’s about to happen, namely, a nuclear holocaust, the U.S. and NATO vs Russia, China, Pakistan, North Korea, Iran…

    Me, myself, and I, for one, DO NOT wish to see how this is going to play out!!!

    While I believe that the U.S. and NATO will and would eventually win, this is a gamble, folks!!!

    NOT to mention, this is orchestrated, for the new world order agenda and propaganda.

    May the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY have Mercy on US ALL!!!

  264. Pure propaganda from Russia. This Polina woman writes crazy stuff, and dictated to her by the KGB. Russia has 2-3k folks doing nothing but writing propaganda on a daily basis.

  265. While I believe and think that the U.S. and NATO would EVENTUALLY win a war against Russia, let’s look at the cold, hard facts and truths.

    Based on what we’ve seen in the past decade or so, Russia and Putin has the uuhhhuuummm to do what it takes to win a war, by military movements and strategic positioning… I hate to say it, but, what have we done, other than meaningless talk, debating, threats of sanctions, isolating Russia, stopping trade, etc. Russia does NOT need the U.S. or NATO.

    We DO NOT need to make Russia our enemy, though, because of Turkey, we are very fast making Russia become our enemy.

    Based on the above article, and, other sources that I have read and heard, Russia’s technology and advancement, militarily, nuclear missiles and warheads, surpasses and is superior to ours.

    They pose a formidable, legitimate threat.

    We don’t know for sure if Russia actually did fly into Turkish airspace or not, or, if it was even Turkey that shot down the Russian fighter jet. For ALL we know, because of how corrupt governments are, it could’ve been the U.S. that shot down that fighter jet from Turkey, on Turkey day, making Turkey, the U.S., and NATO look even more like a bunch of idiotic turkeys.

    We DO NOT and SHOULD NOT make Russia our enemy, but, that may now prove to be too late.

    “You underestimate your enemies and their capabilities, you end up dead!!!”

  266. Ummm,….fallout kills, but atomic & thermonuclear explosions, also kill. Temperatures can reach up to 100,000,000° Celsius. (as hot as the interior of the sun) Then there is the blast pressure.

    Overpressure

    Blast effects are usually measured by the amount of overpressure,
    the pressure in excess of the normal atmospheric value, in pounds per
    square inch (psi).

    After 10 seconds, when the fireball of a 1-megaton nuclear weapon
    has attained its maximum size (5,700 feet across), the shock front is
    some 3 miles farther ahead. At 50 seconds after the explosion, when the
    fireball is no longer visible, the blast wave has traveled about 12
    miles. It is then traveling at about 784 miles per hour, which is
    slightly faster than the speed of sound at sea level.

    Peak overpressure
    Maximum Wind Speed

    50 psi
    934 mph

    20 psi
    502 mph

    10 psi
    294 mph

    5 psi
    163 mph

    2 psi
    70 mph

    As a general guide, city areas are completely destroyed by
    overpressures of 5 psi, with heavy damage extending out at least to the 3
    psi contour.

    These many different effects make it difficult to provide a simple
    rule of thumb for assessing the magnitude of injury produced by
    different blast intensities. A general guide is given below:

    Overpressure
    Physical Effects

    20 psi
    Heavily built concrete buildings are severely damaged or demolished.

    10 psi
    Reinforced concrete buildings are severely damaged or demolished.

    Most people are killed.

    5 psi
    Most buildings collapse.

    Injuries are universal, fatalities are widespread.

    3 psi
    Residential structures collapse.

    Serious injuries are common, fatalities may occur.

    1 psi
    Window glass shatters

    Light injuries from fragments occur.

  267. You really know what the USA can do militarily because we don’t brag like Russia does. Russia really has an inferior complex coming from the little man Putin. Putin has the little man syndrome. That moron is leading Russia to disaster and the people of Russia are fooling themselves.

  268. if i remember correctly, there was a U.S. Military General that wanted to take out Russia back in 1945…….looks he was right.

  269. My only point is that war is always terrorism and terrorism is always an act of war. What side you are going to take, it’s totally up to you.

  270. Yeah, they’re too busy with their social networking like facebook, twitter, reality tv, wwe, video games, partying, etc., rolling over, heads buried in the sand, because the majority can’t come to terms or grips and face the cold, hard facts and truths about what’s really going on in the U.S. and around the world.

    The majority are so blind and naive, to think that Russia doesn’t pose a legitimate and formidable threat… we’re ALL about to learn a VERY, VERY valuable lesson, and, I hate to say it, by that time, it will be too late.

    We DO NOT need a war with or against Russia, and, we SHOULD NOT make them our enemies, especially when China, Pakistan, North Korea, and Iran are their allies.

    While I believe the U.S. and NATO would EVENTUALLY win the war, there will be SO MANY losses on ALL sides, and, the majority of the world would be inhabitable.

    “You underestimate your enemies and their capabilities, you end up dead!!!”

    So many people are proving to be “canon fodder.”

    May the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY have Mercy on humanity and the world!!!

    We’re in BIG trouble.

  271. At least we don’t have G. W. Bush or one of these new crop of Republican loons running for president, with their finger on the button, just itching for a excuse to play war games for real! If one of them were president, we would already be in several conflicts and probably in a nuclear with Russia right now, being that Putin is just as loony as those Republicans!

  272. The Russian mentality is we can survive a nuclear war with the USA. Only a moron would believe that. Putin is a moron and if he wants to bring the world to an end, so be it. We won’t be watching your missiles coming our way and be doing nothing on our end. You will be getting our full slew of our missiles in return. Don’t kid yourselves.

  273. They’re saying that because of the sheer size and scope of Russia. They’re so big, it’d be much easier to survive, than in other smaller countries.

  274. Apparently, Russians and Putin think that all NATO would be destroyed and life would go on in Russia has it had before. One wonders, could they really be that brainwashed. Could Putin be in his own little bubble and has lost the concept of a real war with a worthy opponent, being that NATO is far more worthy than Russia.

  275. BWAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    Pretty much!!!

    I like a challenge, though.

    We’re about to see who has what it takes to survive a nuclear winter..

  276. Are you talking to me, Watchman, or, are you referring to the goober that commented above?

    I DO know the drill, though, and, my enemies and their capabilities VERY well.

    My comment was in defense of the Russians, telling the goober writer above that shooting down only 1 Russian fighter jet, he claimed Turkey kicked their behinds over, and I said, that kind and way of blind, naive thinking will get you killed, and, Russia’s threatening nuclear war over it.

    Where did you misread my comment?

    Please elaborate.

  277. Does it upset you that a country stood up to Russia, so you are making threats of nuclear retaliation on behalf of Russia? Do you really think that Russia would survive a war with NATO? are you mentally sick. Putin pushes the boundary because he thinks NATO will back down to avoid a war, just like all bullies. But Russia would also be destroyed! Give it some thought!

  278. It’s not the explosion that kills but the fall out. Enjoy your green glowing meat and potatoes! And Pomona if you hate the US so much and like swallowing Russian male rooster, then just moved to the Bear and write your carp content over there!

  279. Your BS don’t scare us any. You can push small countries around, but you will not push the USA like you do with those small countries. Our President speaks softly but carries a big stick. We don’t have to brag about anything, because America is the BEST. Eat you heart out, you asshole.

  280. How about we look at it another way. Is Putin willing to risk Moscow over Turkey? NATO in Europe backed down when Russia invaded and annexed part of Georgia. NATO in Europe backed down when Russia invaded and annexed Crimea. NATO in Europe backed down again when Russia invaded eastern Ukraine, while Russia has been playing chicken with other nations by flying in attack formations and even temporarily crossing borders with their aircraft on a regular bases, so when Russian aircraft done the same in the Mideast by invading Turkish air space, to bomb Turkish people and forces, saying that it was ISIS, they has every reason to believe that Turkey, a NATO member would also back down, but Turkey shot down the Russian aircraft, which stunned and upset Putin, so Putin in his usual manor threatens retaliation or even nuclear war, and already the consultants are saying that Turkey will be left on it’s own, much like NATO has been doing all along. It’s about time to see if Putin is willing to risk a real war. Russia already controls the UN by means of it’s veto powers and now apparently,. controls NATO as well by means of nuclear threats of retaliation should there be any retaliation of their blatant disregard of others airspace as they are there not to fight ISIS but to bolster Assad!

  281. Any decent EMP and that would drop like a rock. Why do you think Russia keeps those old propeller bombers ?? .. less electronics !

  282. Hhhmm…

    1 Russian fighter jet taken down by Turkey, and, yeah, we’re laughing and partying and making fun of the Russians and carrying on, WHILE, in the mean time, Russia and Putin are threatening Turkey and NATO with nuclear war, and, you blindly and naively think and say and believe that Turkey kicked their behind already?! HOW FOOLISH and NAIVE IS THAT!!!

    REAL SMART MOVE, DUMMY!!!

    While I believe the U.S. and NATO would EVENTUALLY win the war against Russia, China, and Pakistan, the article states, though, that Russia’s technology and advancement with nuclear missiles, etc., surpasses and is superior to that of the U.S.

    The Russians have NOT been our enemy, and, NOW, they’re fast becoming our enemy, because Turkey was so drunk on Turkey, the shot down one of Russia’s fighter jets, which, according to other reports, Russia was NOT flying or violating their airspace.

    We DO NOT want to make Russia become our enemy, based on the above article and information, if it’s true, especially since ONLY ONE Russian nuclear missile with many warheads would and could destroy the entire State of New York.

    “You underestimate your enemies and their capabilities, you end up dead!!!”

  283. Now, definitely this is the news we all were waiting for this weekend…f@@@@ck Putin and that illiberal democrat Mr. Z!

  284. I tried to warn people a LONG time ago, that one day, there’d be a Third World War, and, that we’d be fighting against Russia and China.

    I was laughed at, and called a paranoid, delusional, tin foil hat conspiracy theorist. haha

    Well, NO ONE is laughing NOW!!!

    I love the words, “I TOLD YOU SO!!!”

    Now, go ahead back to sleep, and, bury your coward, sissy heads in the sand, because TOO MANY of you are so blind and naive, thinking that nothing’s going to happen, thinking and believing blindly and naively so, that what’s going on in the world, and in the U.S., is somehow going to fix itself, disappear, or, go away, by simply ignoring what’s going on, pretending like issues don’t exist, because you CANNOT come to grips and terms with what’s going on.

    Well, these things and threats and enemies are NOT going away, NO matter if you simply ignore them, roll over, go back to sleep, and, bury your coward, sissy heads in the sand or not. These things are NOT going to fix themselves, and, they are things that NEED your attention if you have any kind of hope for survival at all.

    WAKE UP!!! WAKE UP!!! WAKE UP!!! WAKE UP!!! WAKE UP!!! WAKE UP!!! WAKE UP!!! WAKE UP!!! WAKE UP!!! WAKE UP!!! WAKE UP!!! WAKE UP!!!

    “If you underestimate your enemies and their capabilities, you end up dead!!!”

    That’s just the cold, hard facts and truths!!! Deal with it, or, continue to ignore it, and, pretend this isn’t happening or doesn’t exist.

    May the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY have Mercy on US ALL!!!

  285. I am not Russian or American but I have been to both places. US like to broadcast everything but Russia has LOTS of secrets.
    I so afraid that US is ready to go in to War with Russia. It might be a very big mistake that will last for generations.
    Talking
    about Nuclear weapon. USA is the only coward that used the weapon
    (After the war was over). Russia has lots of secret war equipment that
    they won’t talk about. USA might have the same but believe it or not
    Russia has more.
    Also I heard some morons talking about another world
    war. America and some few countries will be on there own while 70% of
    other Strong (silent countries) will gladly support Russia. Because It
    clear what trouble USA is causing around the world but claiming they are
    helping.

  286. Turkey has about 60 F16’s. Russia has 10 times that many fighter craft. Fighter jet against a bomber is a no contest combat scenario. Never spent any time in the military did you goober ?

  287. If you corner a tiger, it will bite back. When Russia feels it can no longer survive, it will unleash all that it got. And what it got is nothing to laugh about. It will be kill or be killed. When you know you are going down, are you going to go down quietly or take as many of your enemies with you as possible? I think we need to stop antagonizing Russia and other countries just because they don’t have the same kind of government as ours or the same religious believes as ours. America is involved in almost every war, large and small. We have been at constant war with one country or another, either directly or indirectly. Whenever there’s a conflict, the war vultures gather and the dead (mostly civilians) starts to pile. But most Americans are unconcerned because the wars seem so distant because we haven’t been in a war where foreign enemies can attack our homeland on a large scale. We may be able to get away in Iraq, Libya, to name a few in recent history, because they can’t touch us but Russia is no pushover. Why can’t we all just cooperate to advance the human race instead of killing each other over minor disagreements that most people don’t even care about. If we put the same amount of effort into space exploration, for example, as we put into war, we probably have a colony on the moon by now. It only takes one lunatic to start a war that could end the human race.That lunatic could be one of ours.

  288. Turkey has only about 60 F16’s. Russia has 10 times that many fighter craft. And a fighter jet against a bomber is a no contest combat scenario. Never spent any time in the military did you goober ?

  289. I kid you not! This lady writes a “doomsday nuclear” article every fuckin day!

  290. Apparently Russia is able to hit ISIS targets in Syria very accurately using cruise missiles launched from Caspian sea. You’ve spent so much time watching football your IQ has fallen below the normal cognitive range. More doritos and coke loser ?

  291. Dude, seriously, Russia is a formidable threat.

    You and those like you, that underestimate their enemies and their capabilities continually end up dead.

    I’m NOT saying fear the Russians, I’m just saying, they’re a great, formidable threat, a greater threat than many believe that they are.

    And, with China and Pakistan as their allies, NUCLEAR backups, compared to NATO… well, I for one, WOULD NOT like to see the outcome of this nuclear holocaust, for there will be MAJOR losses on ALL sides.

    I believe we, the U.S. and NATO would win the war, eventually, HOWEVER, the article stated that Russian technology and advancement, nuclear capability, etc., is superior and more advanced than the U.S. and NATO.

    I don’t think it’s wise to find out who’d win in this war, do you?!

    Just saying!!! Especially since only 1 missile with a bunch of warheads could take out the entire State of New York.

    This is a fight and a war we DO NOT need to find ourselves in, ESPECIALLY presently, under the present, current SO CALLED, SUPPOSED president, leadership, and administration, which is NO president, leadership, or administration at all. They’re a JOKE, NOT doing their jobs, and, they’re collaborating with, catering to, defending, supporting, and funding our enemies, muslims, islam, terrorists, and, the globalists, new world order.

    They’re ALL guilty of TREASON, and, they will be punished for their betrayal, and, their Oath Breaking, soon, by we the Patriots and Military Veterans.

  292. Don’t under estimate Putin. Russians have advanced Laser & Electro Magnetic warfare capabilities the USA hasn’t dreamed about yet. Half of USA 19 AirCraft Carrier force will be at the bottom of the sea in 72 hours after outbreak of hostilities. For those of you too busy watching basketball & football games, just keep chomping on your doritos & slopping down your cokes. Idiots.

  293. “…human life in Russia can easily survive first and second nuclear strikes”..

    Do these people not realize what a first and second strike would consist of? Do they not know that a nuclear explosion in the megaton range does not just kill a city and stop there?

    Look you overzealous uninformed and dangerous morons, a one megaton explosion would render hundreds of square miles uninhabitable because of radiation! LOTS of it! It would be 1,000 Chernobyl’s at a hundred times worse than the 1986 version – across the entire continent of Asia!

    The US arsenal doesn’t use the ‘bigger’ bombs that these morons gloat about simply because Russia STILL does not posses the accuracy in delivering these bombs as does the US. Therefore to compensate for the Russian’s likely probably of ‘missing its target’, the morons just make their bomb’s yield bigger. It doesn’t make the ‘damage’ to humans any worse than it will be by smaller bombs in the 500K or 1M size that the US will use.

    You see, hundreds of one megaton explosions in Russia would put millions of tons of radioactive debris into the atmosphere from the burst clouds and the non-stop city-sized firestorms. Not only would this poison the entire continent, it would block out the sun immediately dropping temperatures into sub-zero ranges for years! The entire northern hemphisphere would be uninhabitable and even those most remote Russians that survived the ‘first and second’ nuclear strikes would die from radiation, exposure and hunger. All life on that continent would come to a saddened slower end – thats all you got going for you.

    …and the Russian leaders are so excited to push the button first huh?…figures

  294. I didn’t marry a cowboy. I married a man that owns a corporation and in two more years it will be managed by our oldest twin Russian daughters when my husband retires. Never would have happened for them if I had stayed in Russia. I will assure YOU and your worthless dictator Putin that my children and American family comes first before Russia anything. Clean up your dirty mouth typical Russian man loser. Hurts your worthless a** that Russian women won’t nothing to do with Russian men. Oh, I’ve also been a US Citizen for 12 years. America is my home now, American is my country now, America is where I’ve raised my children and America is where I’ll stay and I have NO plans to ever live in Russia again. Pocka loser.
    Go USA, Go Ukraine, Go Montenegro! Oh, I had to say Montenegro because I have a Russian friend there that says everyone there is excited about becoming part of NATO but, she’ll be in American soon on a K1 visa to marry an American man about 1 hour from my home.

  295. Polina, based on your picture, you’re very cute. Based on your writing, you’re a poor journalist. This article is unsubstantiated fearmongering, and you should be ashamed for writing it. I realise you’re probably Ukrainian, but even so, you should really get a grip on your writing.

  296. @JD. Shut up!!! You do not know history. Read what was going on the Atlantic waters during the war. You need some history lessons.

  297. True, NATO missile defense systems and retaliation rules of engagement are pretty much automated and are executed within couple of minutes by active personnel, no one has time going around making phone calls while Mr Obama is taking a restroom break.

  298. I am not Rusophobic. You do not like US Government under Obama? Interesting, because I think Obama is the most peaceful leader among of all US Presidents. There were some more predacious men at White House in the past. You will not find more quiet man than Obama. I said this even that I do not support Democrats, due to different reason. Russia and USA should work together to keep peace in the world. Even balance of power. Russia and US should count on each other in case of military emergency. I believe they both can. Do not count on China because Chinese mind only their own business clearly awaiting more appropriate time to GROW UP. Do not count on India either since Hindus (men, not women) are cowards and eunuchs.

  299. OOOho this is you moron ukro-nazi pole biach !!! I thought you got some crazy good idea in your brainless mind !! Yap go fak your self little boy.

  300. Also, the Russian military is falling apart – they can’t even AFFORD to buy THEIR OWN new, advanced weapons systems (such as those new tanks that they tried to show off, only to have them break down a few miles down the parade route).

    The most complex weapons systems they actually ARE currently managing to operate are totally falling apart. Especially their nuclear subs. My point is this – Putin is trying really, really hard to show Russia is still a superpower equal to the west.

    It is not.

    Period.

  301. I wouldn’t take anything the “Russia & India Report” writes all that seriously. I guarantee you that NATO WILL honor it’s commitments. While the US is obviously the most important contributing member of NATO, it’s not the ONLY member. Besides, forces operating under NATO are commanded BY NATO, not the US.

  302. LOL So what? What is that Russian bucket of bolts going to “command?” The Turks – the Turks mind you – just shot down an outdated, overmatched Russian plane that invaded its airspace with an American F-16. Please. Take your sad attempt at propaganda somewhere else where gullible idiots will believe it.

  303. Dimwit, if I’m wrong the farm won’t be worth much and I’ll be dead anyway. On the other hand, if I’m right I’m going to make a lot of money.
    It’s a win-win situation.

  304. The Russians defeated the German third Army, without any help from the Americans! If they did not do this, Germany would have gained more control over Russia (USSR back then) and then went into Moscow! I give credit to the Russians for that task. America can never show gratitude for anything, just try to be pompous showoffs!

  305. Where does she say she wants to die for Putin? Why is she a Russian troll? She is simply stating facts IF tensions escalated and nuclear war broke out. I do not think she actually wants nuclear war, nor do I or anyone else. I hope the nations and politicians do not allow themselves to let matters escalate so that nuclear weapons might be used.
    Turkey should just confess to buying ISIS oil and apologize to Russia for shooting down the Su-24. The should also condemn the Turkman terrorists who shot the pilot while parachuting, though more likely they were already destroyed by Russian bombing in the following days.

  306. Who are these moron writers who come up with these BS stories. This sounds so silly that it could have been written Geraldo Rivera.

  307. You should ask those Germans how cold that Russian winter was! The Russians didn’t even need a nuke to take care of the third army!

  308. She is writing about a worse case scenario, that is all. But yet a possibility IF things were to escalate from one step to the next. The US may not (and i hope not) come to Turkeys aid because Turkey is at fault shooting down the plane and permitting terrorists to gun down the pilot in violation of Geneva convention regarding firing upon parachutists.
    The problem is if other NATO countries like Britain decided to get involved and confront Russia, then Russia attacked them, and the US may defend a country like Britain, France, Germany, etc.
    As several US military people have stated Turkey shouldn’t even be in NATO and/or should be removed from NATO.
    Russia did detonate the Tsar Bomba in 1961, largest nuke ever tested at approximately 50 megatons, or 50,000 kilotons, so they are perfectly capable of having very powerful nukes such as the ones mentioned here

  309. We don’t need to start a war with you dumb Russians. We just despise and disrespect you and there’s nothing you can do about it.

  310. usr2015,

    Even if only 10% of the Russian nukes managed to get through, we’d be done, and so would a good portion of the human race within 1.5 years.

    “Betting” on something as horrendous as this is not only stupid, it’s simply suicidal.

    If you’re willing to bet your “farm”, then simply have it categorized as a USA national military asset. That way, when the rest of us are dying, we could at least be content that you were then only atoms/molecules floating somewhere.

    Mike

  311. ?? ??????????? ?? ?????????????, ??????? ??????? ????? ??????, ??? ??? ??. ?? ??? ?? ????? ???????? ??????, ??????? ??? ?? ???????, ????? ?? ?????????

  312. You have never won a single war Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan name them and how come you think you will win a war with Russia. One Satan that is dropped in New York is the end of America. May be you don’t know the power of Satan.

  313. Forget about sanctions, I’m not talking about sanctions. And forget about China, the Chinese people are wise, unlike the dumb Russians.
    I’m talking about madman Putler here, who is a drunkard and an idiot, who spends more than he can afford. It’s easy to destroy Russia, we’ve done it in the past already.

  314. Do you want Putin to give Kuril islands to Japan for what? For American criminal govt that will put military nato bases there immediately.. We are not stupid.
    You must do something with your Rusophobia… You sound insane.. Get some electrotherapy LOL
    Where are you from?

  315. You must be dreaming. The whole west imposed sanction on China some year ago who does not have or depend on oil today China s almost the largest economy in the world. You can impose sanction in any African country and it will hurt them seriously but not a country like Russia.

  316. @ In dependent observer

    no more psychopath then your mamma. Just because you eat up on daily propaganda does not mean it’s the reality.
    Oh, and “never underestimate your enemy” I see, is not your thing. Of course, all “not psychopaths” like you think they better and above everyone and anything
    HE DOES NOT WORK FOR YOU , therefore the day US MSM will like him that is the time for Russian people to get new president.
    another point, many idiots think that somehow if Putin walks away Russia will become this submissive sheep of a country, think again. Before you talk garbage about Putin and scream for his replacement at least know few POPULAR Russian politics (not those US funded morons whom US media pushing as popular like Khodorkovsky and Navalny they would never sniff the door of Kremlin) and then talk. Putin is level headed, smart man. You keep wishing and one day he will be replaced , but I don’t know if US gov. and all those hating on Putin will like the result

  317. no more psychopath then your mamma. Just because you eat up on daily propaganda does not mean it’s the reality.

  318. Ok moron, which evil created the evils of today, also known as the axis of evil’s US military branch ISIS and Alqaeda, that was behind the scene. To the best of my knowledge, no one is behind your a$$whopping in iraq/afganistan today. Its hilarous how the cowards are so afraid of the students it created.

  319. Good point! America never can admit to the damage of it’s WMD’s and all the innocent lives those weapons took in Japan, as WE HAVE BEEN THE ONLY COUNTRY TO EVER USE THEM!

  320. “Russia’s ready for Nuclear War” is Polina Tikhonova trying to say that America or China would have to wait for some guy to come back from vacation to be ready for Nuclear war ?

  321. they were at the border of the United States atalntic coast? or at the boarder of Alaska?hmm didnt remember that in WW2 history rusty bear. 25 million died because they were untrained,underarmed,outfought, and had bad intelligence.

  322. Yes, in that sense I do not suggest to understand any facts. But I do think much of the problem is so many Biblical Scholars opinions and interpretations can be quite different from one another.

  323. After reading the headline I had to wonder what nonsense this article is about because the plane command centers have been around for decades. So I looked at the comments here and thanks to the commenters, I have been spared from wasting time on click bait.

  324. yeah, we should all just give up to the athiest vodka swilling peons right? mutually assured destruction is still the main course on the war menu and i DO mean ASSURED from OUR end!

  325. We also have global warming, it seems no one ever addresses. How would our atmosphere be affected by these nuclear blasts? I believe it would take global warming to a new level!

  326. Terrorist country like Turkey should be removed from NATO because it is obviously supporting ISIS, while terrorist ISIS are busy of doing terrorist attacks around the world, and turkey did not even participate the coalition forces, then shot down russian jet who is participating with allied forces to target ISIS even it is a member of NATO..

  327. The anti-Christ are the ones who tried to kill Jesus only
    fake preachers preach the “end times” because only God knows when it will be
    and not a single fake preacher.
    1 John 2:22
    Who is the liar? It is whoever
    denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is the antichrist—denying
    the Father and the Son
    By the way, Islam did not try to kill Jesus.

    Google “pastor Luke the real reasons for Jesus and the New Testament”

    This is so you can get the facts with real Biblical application and not false so called
    “interpretations”. 95% of the Bible interprets itself.

    Matthew 24:36[ The Day and Hour
    Unknown ] “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the
    angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.

  328. China gains nothing by a war with the US. It still casts eyes on all that empty land in Siberia. Before you know it Chinese settlers will be found having lived in Siberia for years and China will decide it has an obligation to defend it’s people.

  329. It all started with simple guns! There are no controls for guns in this country (USA), the point being no guns, no shootings with the inclusion of law enforcement having no guns. Then there would be no violence with weapons that can kill instantly (which human beings in 2015 years have yet to be constructive, man also can not get along with one another, overcome the use of foul language, but his technology advances much more quickly than he does! How many more thousands of years do you think it will take before man can advance forward in evolution? However his technology seems to be destructive in nature not constructive which is why we have a 2% greed class in America which is a very stingy group of individuals which our founding fathers of the country premise of America was to obtain the American Dream! If it were fairly distributed and the opportunity presented to American citizens, there would be 98% rich and 2% poor! Our numbers have indicated the American Dream is not for everyone here, so what is the actual incentive of this country, when it became what James Madison feared it would today, and he was correct! He should have been Nostrasdamis!

  330. There’s no need for nukes.
    We can bring damn Russia back in the stone age by just manipulating the price of oil – while laughing all the way to the gas station.

  331. This lady seems to be determined to work everybody up into a nuclear war frenzy. Her articles are just trash journalism.

  332. Pathetically ill informed analysis. Putin would never make that mistake. He is a nasty psychopath, but he isn’t suicidal. In case there is any doubt, in the event of a potential nuclear exchange, Russia will be lucky to get a single missile in the air, let alone on target. And a nuke that can destroy all of the state of New York in a single blast would destroy the planet you nut job.

  333. I hardly believe Paulina is fluent in anything else but BS although I do agree if war escalated between Turkey and Russia, Nato would abandonTurkey to its fate, and rightly so imo.

  334. you must be us military, dumb as sh-t…learn to spell before expressing your views. typical of what the us personnel is like, idiotic but arrogant and a bully.

  335. 25 Million what? Does that include the numbers that Stalin had killed and starved. The “Red” Army raped it’s way across Europe and left it’s waste in it’s wake. Nothing honorable about what Russia did.

  336. Why do you need a battlefield when you can just launch the nukes. This is a nuclear war right? Designed to obliterate mankind from the face of the Earth. Where death is better than life. Survival will only slows down death and cause painful sufferings. To hide is not an option anymore. This is the time when families stays together and wait for the inevitable. Lucky for those who had managed to prepare for their survival -only the rich perhaps.

  337. While it would be rewarding to cover Russia in radioactive glass, it’ll be even more fun to just ruin their economy until madman Putler begs for mercy.

  338. if russia launched a massive attack,even if we didnt fire back, there would be so much radiation and dust in the atmosphere from america burning up that the world would die of a nuclear winter and strontium 90 contamination.AND if we didnt launch,half of NATO at least would i would think. God will not let anything He doesnt want to happen..happen. the antichrist cannot try to rule the world if there is no people left alive to rule.

  339. “Russian aeronautic industry have always been better than the American”

    Really?, Just do a quick google search and see the composition.
    Russian airlines lease 90 percent of their planes from international leasers, with Aeroflot’s aircraft inventory about 50% Airbus and 45% Boeing built

    When did they become better than American built planes, if ever?

  340. That’s Why NATO exists, Russia has always been the excuse for NATO to exist. That what the US want americans to believe that Russia is a threat and thats why NATO should continue even thou the cold war was over more than 20 years ago.

  341. That B$#@h gets drunk off her own kool aid. Life in Russia is bad as it is she is talking about surviving 2 attacks. Russia would not even get to see the damage they have caused.. Go jump on a banana and shut your pie hole.

  342. Well when american are not capable of even putting their asstronauts into space, they call the russians right? Largest plane on earth? Russian. Fastest bomber in the world? Russian. Heaviest plane? Russian. Not to mention helicopters. Have you ever wondered why russian planes are sold in more countries than the Americans?

  343. Yes Putin is a dictator. Where do you get your information from? Here? Where the state department censers what you read and what you NOT read?
    Remember who assisted President Lincoln during the civil war. Yes Russia has the arsenal, but if you do your homework they were put into a position where they had no other choice.
    In respect to “Human Rights Violations” Saudi Arabia and turkey both make North Korea look like Angles.
    Don’t forget Kind Saudi threatened America earlier this year saying “If you don’t come assist us in taking down Syria we are going to pull all of our funds out of America”.
    That’s a direct threat against us, then a few months later Kerry goes to visit King Saudi.
    You will never get this information here on this internet = The talk among common people in Egypt is Saudi with turkeys assistance is what created ISIS.
    And remember this: One of the safest places for the Christian Community in all of Arabia was in Syria.
    Here is some information I am not 100% sure about but I am beginning to believe there’s some truth: Among many Biblical Scholars the Anti-Christ shall arise in turkey. If there’s any truth to that then I have a feeling Russia, well, I hate to even think about what happens.
    Biblical prophecy shall be fulfilled. Perhaps turkey shall make an alliance with Israel then sometime later turkey shall stab Israel in the back.
    Just recently I sold a Turkish drum cymbal and I am glad to get rid of it!

  344. Your name is ishaq? It should be esheq which means donkey in Turkish. Btw I am Armenian love Russia Armenia Greece and all the true patriots that stand up against world aggression commanded by evil paper tiger nato. Soon the world will be a peaceful place again just as it was when the Soviet Union was around

  345. Polina Tikhonova Is pro Russia sure she is going to put this garbage out as for the doomsday plane where is it going to go after the planet has been bombed wait it will just go down. What a piece of trash this woman is

  346. The United States certainly could use a seasoned diplomatic corp and a president with testicles larger than BB’s about now. At present we have the weakest president of the last century and all of the world, friends and foes alike know it. Russia and China both have been waiting for this crack in our armor for decades. Well, here we are. Our military funding has been slashed to the bone and manpower reduced while Russia and China continue to enlarge their fighting forces and update and add to their war machines. All while our president looks the other way or whiles his time away playing golf at Martha’s Vineyard or entertains his celebrity friends and professional jocks or race baiting buddies like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson Sr.
    Who knows, now that Russia and China have became friends, maybe Putin can convince China to turn North Korea loose and have that nut do their nuclear bombing of the US for them. After the smoke clears, then Russia and China can come in and finish the job and reap the spoils. I wonder if Obama and company has spent any time thinking of that.

  347. Do not you know Vladimir Zhirinovsky? He is an ordinary drunkard. Do not consider this fool seriously. He just does what Putin is telling him. Inflated peacock.

  348. Russian aerospace better than American? You sir, are the biggest idiot we’ve ever heard of, and your words prove it.

  349. dictators Putin and ASSad should get out of Syria so the
    coalition can crushed and flushed out ISIL in their rat holes….TURKEY, U.S.,
    & NATO knew it was a Russian jet…dictator Putin is the bully here and
    provoked Turkey so that he can install his missile defense system in Syria
    after having a secret meeting with ally dictator ASSad behind closed doors.
    Putin is a smart man with strategies like in chess, but Putin can’t be
    supported/trusted coz he’s got evil plans under his sleeves : he wants to build
    his forces in Syria to control and have superiority in the MIddle East. Putin
    wants to probe NATO countries around the world in a systematic and dangerous
    ways. Russia’s economy and military is bad that the only way out is for Putin
    to go to war !! U.S. and NATO are more
    powerful and stronger than Russia. Putin’s allies are Iran and Syria, and
    trying to get Pakistan to join him in the fight. PUTIN = END TIMES (Russia Bear
    is described in the ancient Holy Bible prophesies…)… if people really knew
    what ‘LOVE’ is (GOD is LOVE), we won’t have crime, violence, turmoil, wars
    !!!!!! May God bless us all !

  350. Let me remind this war seeking journalists that there will never be a war between USA and Russia and that your lame asses will continue to live. There might be a war between Russia and turke my however nato won’t come to turkeys aid since they know hat Turkey is as Islamic as Saudi Arabia

  351. Without Americans the weak (as you just said) Japanese would turn your Red Army into one big trash. This is the reason why Putin is afraid to turn back to this little but hugely intelligent nation few small Kuril islands. Shame on you. You have the largest territory and still want more. You clearly suffer from inferiority syndrome. Or better to say lack of attention. Typical problem of old lonely women. I am not American. If you are curious…

  352. You should have stopped on every one [article] I have read by this author. The problem is obviastly an author.

    Second, comparing U.S. loses of a jet or a helicopter in Iraq or Afghanistan to a downing of a Russian bomber over Syrian airspace by Turkey that was not even a target and elegantly against ISIS as a NATO member.

  353. Such irresponsible statements from one who is considered to be a “Great Power” and member of the Security Council of the UN!! After all, it’s being proven more and more that the Soviet leaders were much wiser than the new leaders of Russia. What actually is being accomplished by talking like that? The North Korean leaders have been doing such childish stuff for decades, isolating themselves in the process as frigid as Pluto is from the solar system.

  354. Every nation’s goverment think about themselves first ..how about civilians? Forget about them!! .isnt that ironic? Should we support goverment ? Why?From where the goverment get the money to create their own safety? Civilan s must open eyes because the slavery time is still stronger than the past but in smarter way..no goverment has ever care about their people , they only think beneffiting themselves first , using populations for years to work for them .this is real and truth…So its time for everybody to think and start creating plans or ideas how to survive without expecting any help from any goverment ,in case of a nuclear war comes.

  355. Amen, brother. I get sick of the insulting trashy big mouthed Russian and Chinese trolls! They all hate us and want to move here at the same time! Russians are too drunk and spineless to kick their idiots to the curb. Same with China! When will they learn that the people TOGETHER can ALWAYS throw the leaders rear ends out! Are we the only ones in history that got rid of a queen that was untouchable?

  356. War is terrorism. Whole world is trying to justify war as mainly for good. War means fearful, fearsome, terrific, horrendous actions also called terrorism. If a country is engaged in a war, that is terrorism. But, war derives economy, is not it? Terrorism derives economy. 44% of income that U.S. makes off of weapons raise which is far beyond than other countries in the world. So, the very same mind and body makes weapons but mind pulls the trigger. That is what American football where Obama got the nuclear warhead activation codes to activate nuclear warheads. Is that bring peace if active to sustain peace? No. This is the reason why Albert Einstein cried himself at the end that he developed something for destructive purpose in the world and he regretted at the end of his life times. If weapon cache were to take out from the world, it will be much peaceful and nobody needs to keep the weapons to bring peace with weapons.

  357. I will remind you again: 1 Russia jet gets downed, and Russia has to talk nukes again “Vladimir Zhirinovsky, leader of the Liberal Democratic party and Russian presidential candidate in 2012, called on Putin to start dropping nuclear bombs on the Turkish capital of Istanbul, killing over nine million people.” It was also stated that Russia “can end all human life in these densely populated coastal strips”.

    If this is how Russia REALLY thinks, it’s no wonder that NATO has grown to what it is today! When the U.S. loses a jet or a helicopter in Iraq, or Afghanistan, you don’t see the U.S. threatening to annihilate an entire capitol city or a country.

  358. could the axis of evil/NATO stand up in Iraq/afganistan? All I witnessed was the cowards left the mess and now the civilians are paying for it.

  359. you sent these convoys for gold, it was your business. You would support nazi Germany if they were closer to win the war.

  360. Let me assure you that my disability is real. I am truly not able to earn my own living. As for people working while receiving Social Security Disability benefits. Under the law, people who can earn less than a certain amount of money each month, I think the amount is a bit over one thousand dollars (gross) are still considered to be disabled. There is nothing illegal about that. The money isn’t much, but earning it lets them say that they are giving something back to society and it raises their self-esteem.

  361. I cannot understand why Yahoo publishes lousy effects of russian trolls. Tikhonova’s stinky perspirations clearly are. In case of war we all know what the end would look like. While she does not because is young and stupid. If she wants to die for putin it is OK to me. I am not the candidate to inherit her fate….

  362. dictators Putin and ASSad should get out of Syria so the
    coalition can crushed and flushed out ISIL in their rat holes….TURKEY, U.S.,

  363. another none sense article.. russia can destroy New York :) try it baby .. a freshman in political science would write better in this matter. Polina leave this business and let me buy you a drink you look smart.

  364. you also don’t know what is nuclear war is… You just bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaiki like last coward because Japaneses could not answer.. But Russia can answer and Russia will answer. That’s why you’re so scared.

  365. It is critical to point
    out here that NO ONE WINS A NUCLEAR WAR!!!!! Everyone loses.
    Period. Small enclaves of people may survive the initial
    destruction, but with the current arsenals GLOBALLY most plant life will be
    eradicated, close to 100% of animal life will be eradicated, Nuclear winter
    will push us into an ice age for DECADES if not CENTURIES, and Civilization and
    the good things that have come with it (medicine, safe food, electricity, etc.)
    will be gone due to lack of production facilities and the people to run those
    facilities. The initial survivors will die in the intervening
    decades/centuries before the world’s environment recovers. There is NO
    SUCH THING AS WINNING A NUCLEAR WAR!

  366. More fear mongering by our media.

    We fan the flames of fear and uncertainty.

    It legitimizes the need for protection.

    And politicians.

    After arriving at a place where our proverbial boogie man (the former
    Soviet Union) was no longer a threat, our politicians and their lapdog
    military faction began to consider their declining relevancy and
    significance in a world where borders were increasingly meaningless and
    global economics were managed not by politics but by multi-national
    corporations. Like a worker on a Ford assembly line in Dearborn, the
    politicos had the foresight to see that they would be out of a job soon,
    unless a new enemy was created.

    And from these ashes rose Al Quaeda and ISIS and current headlines.
    And electorate are, once again, cowering in their respective corners
    pointing fingers at the other side.

    The problem is the politicians, and the enemies THEY created.

    We dont need them any more and their worst fear is that you slow down long enough to figure it out.

  367. The usual STUFF: once AGAIN Russia threatens to go to nuclear war–as if they are going to survive. Russia goes to “nuclear war” with NATO countries…and all life on Earth will be gone. Sorry but it’s worthy to mention that Russian, like their leader, seem to be delusional: NO NATION SURVIVES a Nuclear war. Such a war could mean the end of life in our planet. BTW: does Russia have an energy shield that will thwart off all incoming nuclear missiles???
    Please, Russians: Stop drinking so much Vodka–nuclear wars has ZERO winners.

  368. As a species it is ingrained in our DNA to juggle 3 fundamentals to cause action and reaction. Greed, fear and faith, the strongest being faith. So as a final ultimatum we have the nuclear club, what dose this mean? We will not let go of our beliefs to listen and commit our selves for the preservation of our species. Our species will rise towards the ultimatum and will make sure it happens. At least we’re smart enough to know to annihilate a stupid dangerous specie.

  369. Uhh, seriously? The IL-80, NATO identifier, “Maxdome” first flew in 1987. There were eventually four built of which three remain and only one, possibly a second remains in flying condition. The IL-86 on which the IL-80 was based is an ancient, by today’s standard, design dating from the early 1970s. The IL-86 was at best a medium range airliner that is no longer in wide use, although some do continue to fly with Aeroflot. It has been eclipsed by the IL-96 which itself is almost 30 years old. I don’t know why you think that the Maxdome is brand new, its been around, flying for some 29 years, long enough for it to already be antiquated. I don’t doubt that the one observed operational IL-80 has undergone some upgrades simply to keep it vaguely up to date but thats about it.

  373. what is an internet cafe? I am really poor, yesterday I bought cheap Fortis watch on ebay only for $2500. I was too greedy to buy Rolex for 8,000 (. I am so poor, please donate me $100,000 for new car.

  375. Why would they wage Nuclear war? So they can die along with everybody else. This article is just another calculated attempt to scaring Americans into spending even more hundreds of billions in defense. Screw Russia. The only thing they have on the table are nukes. As soon as they use them, it’s over for everybody. Their conventional forces couldn’t even stand up to a fight against France much less all of NATO and the US.

  376. Try to imagine just couple of mushrooms in Sankt Petersburg and Moskva. I do not care because I am very old man who still remeber Stalin, Malenkow, Bulganin and all other symbols of communist crap times in Eastern Europe. I do not expect anything better in upcoming years, so…. You are young junk who does not know what war is.

  377. What Russia needs to understand is, they have chosen to enter into the war in Syria. They may have been invited by the Syrian government, but they were not invited by neighboring countries in this conflict. In war, crap happens. The war in Syria has so many sides and factions fighting, there’s bound to be misunderstandings.

  378. ^^^Putin troll sitting in an internet cafe trolling americans in the comment section because he’s too poor to have internet at his house LoL Remember your people standing in line for hours for bread because your government failed you? I do

  379. The article states: “Vladimir Zhirinovsky, …, called on Putin to start dropping nuclear bombs on the Turkish capital of Istanbul, killing over nine million people.”

    Really, Vladimir?! One jet gets downed, and it’s time to drop a nuclear bomb on a city of 9 million people?

    It amazes me that the downing of 1 military jet (that I don’t agree with), causes such journalistic war-mongering, including how Russia “can end all human life in these densely populated coastal strips”.
    If this is how Russia REALLY thinks, it’s no wonder that NATO has grown to what it is today!

  380. …Russia is broke, their economy and military are in bad shape and the only way out is for dictator Putin to go to war !!

  381. This entire article, and every one I have read by this author, just confirms the petulant childish attitude of Russia’s leaders and journalists. When the U.S. loses a jet or a helicopter in Iraq, or Afghanistan, you don’t see the U.S threatening to annihilate an entire capitol city of a country.

  382. Ty ruskaja sobaka, remember that without american military help, sent with convoys of ships across Atlantic Ocean to port of Murmansk, you would speak german language today. Mandatory or you even did not exist. Russian have somehow short memory. You forgot to say thank you to Americans.

  383. only a small part of Russia is in Europe it makes up 40% of europe but 100% of northern asia so why would they join the EU

  384. dictators Putin and ASSad should get out of Syria so the
    coalition can crushed and flushed out ISIL in their rat holes….TURKEY, U.S.,
    & NATO knew it was a Russian jet…dictator Putin is the bully here and
    provoked Turkey so that he can install his missile defense system in Syria
    after having a secret meeting with ally dictator ASSad behind closed doors.
    Putin is a smart man with strategies like in chess, but Putin can’t be
    supported/trusted coz he’s got evil plans under his sleeves : he wants to build
    his forces in Syria to control and have superiority in the MIddle East. Putin
    wants to probe NATO countries around the world in a systematic and dangerous
    ways. Russia’s economy and military is bad that the only way out is for Putin
    to go to war !! U.S. and NATO are more
    powerful and stronger than Russia. Putin’s allies are Iran and Syria, and
    trying to get Pakistan to join him in the fight. PUTIN = END TIMES (Russia Bear
    is described in the ancient Holy Bible prophesies…)… if people really knew
    what ‘LOVE’ is (GOD is LOVE), we won’t have crime, violence, turmoil, wars
    !!!!!! May God bless us all !

  385. china and russia are not ready yet for ww3. they will be though within 5 yrs. thats the bad news… the good news you and i still have time to get our houses in order. but time is ticking people. and for most people 5 yrs is not enough time to prepare. people will refuse to heed all the warning signs out there. most people will remain in denial. that is the sad state america is in. its time people… time to start acting upon the realization of nuclear conflict, get your crap together. start grouping with people you can trust. come together and figure out your strategy to survive and give yourself the best chance to survive this HELL that is coming our way. its inevitable.

  386. Combined Syrian rebels and terrorist groups armed by the US and the West, plus Western bombing from the air have been unable to defeat Assad. Thought I should remind you.

  387. why should the middle class have to spend more on taxes and go down to be in the lower class. I also have a family to support. not saying you are but a lot of people on disability should still be able to work they just don’t want too.

  388. lol polina u need a doctor…all u see is a nuclead distraction coming…but if u get the right treatment ull understand there is not such a thing coming…get med asap!!

  389. The downed plane wasnt a fighter it was a bomber, and not even fighters were have been able to respond because they didn’t Carrie air to air missiles

  390. I don’t mind paying my fair share of taxes, however, you can’t tell me that everyone on disability is truly disabled. I know a couple of ppl on disability who have “side jobs” to supplement their disability payments. They were reported, but do you think action was ever taken?

    If tax increases come they should come for all. After all the country is not just for the rich and middle class, but rather for all Americans. Don’t assume that the middle class can absorb tax increases. Many middle class families are on the verge of proverty no thinks to your liberal mind set.

  391. Because Russia is a fearful country, run by stupid people.
    Russia blathers on about how special it is…so that if a Russian points to Eastern Europe’s now much-better standard of living compared to Russia’s, they say “because Greater Russia (including Ukraine) is unique. THAT, they say, is why, although Poland & Ukraine each threw off Communism at about the same time, Poland’s economy & standard of living is so much better than Ukraine’s.
    What Russia fears is a Ukraine that joins the EU and improves its economy so much that Russian citizens are left asking “…if Ukraine can do it, why not us?”

  392. Russia and Iran and Hizbollah and Syria all combined are unable to defeat Syrian rebels. Russia cannot even handle Turkey alone. Erdogan will humiliate Putin and NATO will not need to be involved. A dog that barks so loudly hardly has the teeth to match. Russia’s nuclear saber rattling is to hide he weakness within

  393. Russia is just a regional power hell their only aircraft carrier need a tugboat to accompany it incase it breaks down lol.

  394. Russia isn’t going to wage nuclear war. Putin has already ordered sanctions against Turkey to hurt them economically. He is unleashing misery on what he claims are extremist from Syria transporting oil to Turkey via the Turkish/Syrian border and by his Air Forces pounding them day and night he is destroying there business. He ordered state of the art S400’s to Syria to send Turkey a message a kind of ” I dare you ” to enter Syrian airspace again. Putin can win the war in Syria without the use of Nuclear weapons and he knows it. The Russian fighter jet that was downed was not even capable or ready for an air to air confrontation that is why Putin said it was a “stab in the back” because it was more of a cheap shot the fighter jet had just targeted fighters on the ground. Now those fighter jets on missions are accompanied with other fighter jets with air to air missiles in other words they are actually ready for a dogfight. All Turkey did was ensure that Syrian airspace is completely Russian controlled now he just woke Russia up basically, this article is fear mongering.

  395. The only strategies are guns and force.
    Solving economic, education, social justice issues, and corruption are the roots.
    Cheaper, but boring.

  396. That is a ridiculous statement, they are not worried about their people at all, they never have been. They are not known for being humane in any way, they are power hungry, and everything that they do is for power, or the image of Russia, not what is on the inside of Russia.

  397. Hahaha Turkey is a nATO member and has the right to defend its sovereign airspace and thier leades tosay anything they want. Attempting at getting people to believe that rethoric aganst a criminal like pootin could be the reason to start a nuclear war is naive, even for the low rate propaganda russkies usually come up with.

  398. And…Why are those articles not in the Russian “media”? Because the Russian journalists that asked the tough questions were killed by the govt years ago.

  399. Christians are worst filthy tERORIST u know how white christians killerd Red indians Christofer columbus the butcher killed 25 millions innocent folks, Stalins 33 millions innocent in the name of BIBEL christian terorist, Adolf Hitler 53 millions ,Bush, Obama together 2 millions , this are good baby killers christians ,

  400. Russia will have China on it side,and while NATO will be reduced to rubble, John McCain still believe U.S can win Nuclear war.

  401. You are freaking, Washington’s shill and graduate of Joseph Goebbels University of deception, lies and propaganda in Washington.

  402. All four of those engines on that Ilyushin altogether produces less thrust than one GE90 on a Boeing 777. Can someone tell me how this dinosaur with a dish compares to even our most antiquated AWACS system in retirement?

  403. 1. They were part of Ukraine, not an independent republic.
    2. The soviet Pootin has admitted to sending in the “little green men” to destabilize Crimea before Russian soldiers moved in.
    3. Would you, as a RussianTroll, know a free election if it hit you in the face? Nope, didn’t think so.

  404. B-S from a russkie troll. The ones sulking are the russkies so the west doesn’t need to make any move. If war were to start it had to be pootin whos doing it. American and NATO just say “bring it on” if that’s what you want.

  405. When will Russia become European and not some weird Asian hybrid with an identity crisis? Russians are Europeans. Join the EU and stop acting crazy.

  406. This is all because Obama is Israel’s poodle and he does what they want him to. They’ll all be safe in their bunkers and the elites have already built safe houses in New Zealand. I don’t want to be vaporized for Israel. Tell Congress to back off and stop supporting Turkey!

  407. TURKEY’S FUTURE (AMERICAN) NUCLEAR WEAPON

    Posted on November 22, 2012 by aaronstein1

    If everything goes to plan, Turkey will receive the United States’ newest nuclear weapon in 2019. Turkey currently hosts between 60 and 70 B61 gravity bombs at Incirlik air force base. During the Cold War, Turkish aircraft were on full nuclear alert status – meaning that Turkish aircraft were loaded with nuclear weapons and ready to take to the air in minutes, should NATO give the order. Now Turkish F-16 are only nuclear certified and would have to fly to Incirlik and pick up the bombs.

    (An interesting side note – During Turkey’s 1974 invasion of Cyprus, the Americans apparently got so nervous that they removed the warheads from Greece’s alert fighter aircraft and its squadron of nuclear armed Nike air defense missiles. In Turkey, the United States also opted to remove the weapons from Turkish alert fighters. These concerns, along with many others, led to the use of Permissive Action Links (PALs) on American nuclear weapons in Europe.)

    The B61 is a family of five nuclear weapons (The B61-3, 4, 7, 10, and 11 – dubbed mods). The United States only deploys the B61-3 and 4 in Europe. The B61-3 has a dial-a-yield ranging from .3 to 170 kt, while the B61-4?s yield ranges from .3 – 50 kt. These weapons, because they are deployed in Europe and carried by fighter bombers, are dubbed to be strategic. (The range of the delivery vehicle matters for classification purposes)

    The new weapon, dubbed the B61-12, will cannibalize parts from all of the B61 mods and consolidate them into a new bomb. The new bomb will use the B61-4 explosive package, meaning that the future B61-12?s maximum yield will be 50 kt. Critically, the Department of Defense has mandated that the new bomb be able to perform all of the mission requirements assigned to the old mods. Therefore, it must be able to be used on the battle field (.3 kt yield), for bunkers (B61-11), and for strategic missions (Thus, designed for delivery by the B2 bomber, which is classified as a strategic delivery vehicle)requiring a larger yield (B61-7). However, the United States has pledged not to build new nuclear weapons, nor to augment the capabilities of its current stockpile whilst undertaking a program to modernize and extend the life of its current stockpile. (For the record – I believe that the B61-12, especially when paired with the F-35 augments the bombs current capabilities).

    Enter the guided tail kit. The new B61-12, in order to perform all of the previously allotted missions, will be outfitted with a guided tail kit – thus making the future bomb America’s first “smart” nuclear weapon. The bomb is being designed for delivery by the F-35, the B-2, and the B-52. Turkey is a partner on the international F-35 program and has indicated, on multiple occasions, that it intends to purchase 100 aircraft. The tail kit will allow mission planners to rely on the weapons accuracy, rather than a larger yield, to hold deeply buried targets at risk. NATO signed off on these changes in 2010 and the U.S. Department of Defense and National Nuclear Security Administration are busily trying to get this bomb out on time.

    I have a number of criticisms about the LEP program, but because this is a Turkey centric blog, I’ll simply invite you to look at Hans Kristensen’s excellent post on the subject. In any case, Turkey, is on pace to receive the B61-12 in or around 2019. To help plan for any delays in the delivery of the F-35, the Pentagon is also modifying Turkey’s current fleet of F-16s to carry the bomb. Thus, we are looking at a nuclear weapons filled future here in Turkey

    LESSONS IN EXTENDED DETERRENCE: WHY THE STATUS OF TURKISH F-16S DOESN’T MATTER

    Posted on April 3, 2013 by aaronstein1

    In response to North Korea’s bellicose threats, the United States has been parading a bevy of nuclear dual capable aircraft near the Korean peninsula. Both the B-52 and the B-2 have a nuclear role and would, in the event of a nuclear conflict, likely use air launched nuclear cruise missiles against targets in North Korea. The F-22, which is on “static display” in South Korea, would, according to the aviationist, “probably escort the big bombers during the opening stages of an eventual campaign (after the rain of cruise missiles that would wipe out most of North Korea’s air defenses…), their role could not be limited to providing air superiority (to be easily and quickly achieved considered the status of the geriatric North Korean Air Force and its obsolete Migs): as demonstrated in last year’s Exercise Chimichanga,the F-22 has the ability to play a dual role in the same mission: HVAAE (High Value Air Asset Escort) and air-to-surface.”

    While the actual threat of conflict on the Korean peninsula is low, the American show of force sheds lights on the lengths Washington will go to demonstrate its commitment to use nuclear weapons in defense of an ally covered by its nuclear umbrella. Washington’s actions, as has been noted by many others, is a show force meant to demonstrate its commitment to extended deterrence. In other words, Washington is signaling its readiness to push the button. (It is also trying to deter an ROK nuclear weapons program, but I am not really going to talk about that – I will leave that for better informed Korean experts.)

    Anyways, the signaling is important for the Turkish leadership in Ankara. Turkey, as regular readers of the blog are well aware, is home to ~65 American nuclear weapons. [From an EDAM issue brief I wrote about Turkey and Tactical Nuclear Weapons] According to Robert Norris and Hans Kristensen, 50 bombs are slated for delivery by U.S. aircraft, but do to basing restrictions American dual capable aircraft (DCA) are not stationed permanently in Turkey. If the order were given for the release of NATO nuclear weapons, American aircraft would first have to be flown to Incirlik from another European base and armed before finally flying on to their targets. The other bombs are reserved for delivery by Turkish dual capable F-16s. However, there are conflicting reports about the status of Turkey’s nuclear fighter-bombers. According to General Ergin Celasin (ret.), the former Commander of the Turkish Air Force, “The Turkish air force’s role in NATO’s nuclear contingency plans came to an end with the withdrawal of nuclear weapons in the 1990s from the Air Force units that were deployed in several air bases in Turkey.”

    However, Norris and Kristensen cite Pentagon sources who say that Turkey’s current fleet of nuclear capable F-16s are receiving a “stop gap” modification to carry the B-61-12. Reports indicate that Turkey’s nuclear capable combat aircraft no longer train for nuclear missions. In the past, the air force’s dual capable aircraft trained for nuclear missions and were certified to carry out nuclear strikes. Turkish aircraft reportedly now only train as non-nuclear escort aircraft for NATO’s nuclear fighter wings. However, NATO has made clear that it does not foresee any scenario that would require the rapid use of nuclear weapons, which raises a number of unanswered questions about Turkey’s current nuclear posture. In any future scenario that might call for the use of nuclear weapons, the return of American DCAs and the re-certification of Turkish DCAs would likely be an important signal to a potential adversary.* [snip]

    In any case, the Alliance, should the need arise, has ample time to move American aircraft into Turkey. The move, perhaps combined with a very public crash course for Turkish pilots to drop the Bomb, would be a very powerful signal to a potential adversary. Or, in other words, extended deterrence.

    Hence, I do not see a real difference in Turkey’s post-Cold War thinking about nuclear weapons, even though the threat of a nuclear attack has diminished tremendously since the collapse of the Soviet Union. In short, Turkey continues to value nuclear weapons because of the widespread belief that they are necessary to deter regional foes like Iran and Syria. (It is also worth nothing, that both of these countries are not covered by a US negative security assurance.)

    Moreover, I suspect that there is a small group in the Turkish Armed Forces that are looking at the American show of force in Korea with satisfaction. Ankara, for a number of very good reasons, is perpetually wary of the American security commitment. Turkey, therefore, sees the forward deployment of nuclear weapons as an important symbol of Alliance solidarity and as a symbol of the US commitment to come to Turkish defense. This belief, however, is predicated on the notion that the bombs will actually be used (debatable actually), should the need arise.

    The American show of force, therefore, should not solely be interpreted in Turkey as the US commitment to ROK security. In fact, the American moves are also aimed at the leadership in Ankara. And I can guarantee that they are paying attention.

  408. Ukrainians want to be part of the EU. Let them be part of the EU. And hopefully Russia will follow, you know mostly because Russia is a European country – not an Asian one or anything in between.

  409. Dear Russia: Please cease and desist from publishing your childish threats of nuclear war on the Western internet and focus on rebuilding your broken economy and many, many social issues. Thank you, signed everyone in the Western World.

  410. No they didn’t, US overthrowing Ukraine’s government was ILLEGAL, and did it to install it’s regime. I guess you would be fine if Russia overthrows US’s government as well to install it’s regime. then

  411. One True Fact about Islam:

    Allah cannot be the same God as the God of Christians and Jews because both the Old and New Testaments teach that God has a begotten Son and the Koran rejects so emphatically Allah having a son that Muhammad says that any Christian or Jew who says Allah has a son should be destroyed (see Sura 9:30 in the Koran). Allah is a false god and Muhammad is his false messenger.

    Allah is not the same god as the God of Christians and Jews, and you will never hear Albaniann or Ayden Zayn declare that Allah has a Son, so # 9 above is proven false and much of the rest is taqiya (lies justified in the name of Allah to advance the cause of Islam).

  412. oh wow, now I am really frightened. jesus people, we have the same thing. but lets see what the short fall of these things are. 1 what goes up must come down. 2. what goes up with the need for fuel to fly must come down to refuel 3 what is made of metal that goes up will show up on radar and be shot down. so it could be useful for a time, its time is short. basically useless in the long run.

  413. Except that the majority of the Ukrainian people supported a change of government. The ones that did not (primarily Crimea and Donetsk) are either no longer a part of Ukraine or are fighting for succession. The Ukrainian people traded a Kremlin puppet for an EU puppet.

  414. And every day on CNN FOX BBC Etc, etc. News about how bad russia is and how badly of a threat they are to the world

  415. You are a graduate of Joseph Goebbels University of deception, lies and propaganda in Washington, but quite stupid one. Russia cares more about their people than Washington’s regime, ever cared about Americans as they only care about average Americans around election and tax time and keep indoctrinating them via paid clowns as you are.

  416. Well Lady… you are mad and you work for a mad man….. you have had wonderful opportunities to study at Oxford, to enjoy the best the western world has and you come up with this drivel…. Perhaps the war will come – but you know, no-one will win – certainly not us or you…. But we know this.. because we are grown-ups – you and your glorious leader have not reached the maturity level of a five year old… When you see the brilliant man-made sun…. perhaps you too in that instance granted to you, will do so as well…

  417. The only ones can decide who goes to war is every single person living in every single country… president or leaders won’t decide for me … if you wanna be a puppet from every single hard headed leader … go ahead. Let them decide for you… I m against war and leadership doesn’t decide for me .. with my vote I put him and I can decide who govern ..

  418. Remind me again why NATO is surrounding Russia with missiles, bombs, jets, troops, and makes aggressive exercises and aggressive threats to Russia for?
    The Ukraine crisis which US started in the first place when US has overthrown Ukraine’s government?
    The Ukraine crisis where Russia’s troops and military aren’t even involved?
    F&^king blood thirsty war mongers!!

  419. You are miles deep in denial and your ignorance painful to watch. Please, for your own good just stop talking before your classmates discover your comments.

  420. Well Russia would destroy most of the planet and they would screw themselves, but they don’t care about their own people anyway. If thy did bomb Turkey I think the whole wold (minus the Norks, Iran and Syria) would shut them out. I don’t even think Chin would be happy about that as a lot of their economics depend on us.
    I’m sure Russia has most of it’s nuclear arsenal aimed at many countries, not just the US. Where we probably have most of ours aimed at them. Four seconds to midnight.

  421. Yes, I waited 20 years to say something and now I’m ready to go public, write a book, and sue the rapist.

    Isn’t that what you, your family, and friends do!!

  422. Food will be totally radioactive for a thousand years. The Russians are mad with power and are misguided by satanic forces. They suffer from paranoia, no one wants Russia.

  423. I seen the headline and knew who the writer is and sure enough i click and confirm its this russian troll. She is so convinced russia will survive a nuclear war. Its impossible, troll do you not realize you and your entire family will die with the west?

  424. We’ve had several of those planes for years (not to mention NORAD), and can wipe out Russia with a single strike. I don’t see the point of this stupid post

  425. Yes, I am a liberal, and maybe there might be a better way save the Pentagon budget than to cut SSDI. and SSI. My idea is to raise taxes on the rich and the middle class. I’d bet that you are probably better able to absorb a cut in your spendable income that most people who are living with disabilities are.

  426. This writer is sick and likes lies to scare people. No one wins Nuclear War. The radiation will kill for years. They will have to live under ground if any survive. Russia will also be destroyed.

  427. One True Fact about Islam:

    Allah cannot be the same God as the God of Christians and Jews because both the Old and New Testaments teach that God has a begotten Son and the Koran rejects so emphatically Allah having a son that Muhammad says that any Christian or Jew who says Allah has a son should be destroyed (see Sura 9:30 in the Koran). Allah is a false god and Muhammad is his false messenger.

    Allah is not the same god as the God of Christians and Jews, and you will never hear Albaniann or Ayden Zayn declare that Allah has a Son, so # 9 above is proven false and much of the rest is taqiya (lies justified in the name of Allah to advance the cause of Islam).

  428. Doomsday plane… or their equavilent of Air Force One? People rediculously make Russia sound like some scary monster lol. I have been there many times. Russians like American and American’s. I have many friends here in America that immigrated from Russia. There is no reason for either of us to attack each other. Only the media plays into that game.

  429. rather self serving ,self centered dont you think ? wipe the whole western way of life away , all because of a cut to your benifits…bet your a lib

  430. “Russia, meanwhile, has a population only half of the United States and
    the people are dispersed widely across the country, which means human
    life in Russia can easily survive first and second nuclear strikes.”

    Wrong. Such nonsense. Almost 80% of Russia’s population lives within the western third of their country. The remaining 66% of the country is about as inhabited as Wyoming.

  431. This article should be banned. All I here from these writers is Nuclear War! God will decide if there will be a nuclear war, NOT RUSSIA, and God will decide who will win. Remember Germany during both World Wars, they were supposedly superior to all others, and what happen, they lost. Russia cannot win a battle against the world, period. Stop scaring, with your crystal ball, what may or may not happen. I am sick of these writers always writing about doomsday scenarios.

  432. U really belive that?? Have u heard of TopolM and Yars?? Those are the most modern icbms in the world, do u really think a Minuteman can destroy the largest country in the world? U really think that there is a missile shield capable of destroying an ICBM fliying at 27000 k/h??

  433. If we (USA.) gets into a war with Russia, it is my fervent hope that we (USA.) loses and that we (USA.) is wiped off of the map. This is because the Republicans want to cut my disability benefits.

  434. I have to say its a good plan to both the U.S. And Russia.

    Why, because we all know planes never have to land.

    They can watch the world be destroyed from above.

    Do they really think if someone drops a nuke, no one else is going to respond in kind?

  435. i guess thats why the US is going out of their way not to push the russians because we can easily wipe them out of the history books …

    US is a bully and if they can kick your @22, they will do it just because they can… hence, lybia, iraq etc!!!

    stop folling yourself that US has the best military on the planet… soldiers are not the future of wars… bombs and mass destruction is… there is a reason why US has nato members to back them in certain situations.. we all know that if nato turns on russia, they will also get support from iran,china, and a host of others that will relish in the opportunity to attack the US

  436. I’m an American and you post Col Sanders actually sounds like most of the USA Too! All the innocents killed in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and all the other countries we invade and bend to our will. Wake Up, We are turning the world against us by our constant meddling in other peoples countries and business. How about we, Secure our borders, upgrade our educational system which ranks toward the bottom of the civilized countries of the world. Feed and house our own homeless, kick out all the illegal squatters and build our Country to the greatness of the 50’s again. Then we can talk S*it, and help other Countries in need. Just a thought. Truthfully even our allies are only our allies because they don’t want to be destroyed like we have done to so many other countries for no reason except, Oil, Money, or we just don’t like your leader because they will not bend to our will. Think About It, You’ll See it’s True………WAKE UP!!

  437. No, America will most definitely not go nuke for any other country because there is absolutely no sense in it to do so. Contrary to popular opinion, the USA President has zero nuclear weapons authority. Only the JCS by majority vote can authorize the use of nukes and there is no way they are going to do so against Russia except in the case of a massive nuclear strike against the continental US itself. Neither is Russia going to strike the USA if the USA nukes somebody else, it will just be too bad for whichever third party get baked as there is no reason to end all life on the planet over somebody else. On the other hand, if either country were to nuke China, the other would immediately also launch against China themselves. Same goes for an attack on any other nuclear power by Russia or the USA. In fact both countries would most likely use such an attack as an excuse to join together and wipe out all other nuclear powers except for each other. That is the dirty secret of MAD.

    People have no idea how closely the USA and Russia are actually connected. How close? Well since their submarine orces were in such poor condition in the 1990’s, we simply gave them the whole Poseidon system (Ohio/Tridents), not just the blueprints, but the tooling and working examples to use as models, AND we de-commission their old boats and missiles for them at Bremerton and the Hanford Site, for FREE, AND we supply them with current updates, training and maintenance. We won’t sell the F22 even to Israel or the UK, won’t even let them look closely at it, but Russia has a dozen to play with which is only fair since Su helped LM design it and the F35.

  438. Do your really think obama is that stupid?? Maybe he is stupid but not that much to want to escalate to a nuclear Conflict with a nuclear superpower, nobody wants to put an end to the human race…

  439. The russian space forces can do the same, they can bring down the entire GPS constellation, it is so funny how u underestimate the power of the russian military, B2s would never penetrate russian air space, i believe all tha BS you posted came from watching lots of Hollywood movies and playing call of duty.

  440. Boy, this is really wishful thinking on the propagandist’s part. Putin is really reaching. One nuke on Turkey and their army will roll right in to Russia.

  441. I highly doubt that either the Americans or Russians will start a nuclear war even if Russia attacks turkey. The us and russia together can easily destroy the planen in just a matter of minutes, obviously no one wants that. But its really funny how some people underestimate russias capabilities, when they have no idea how powerful the russian military is.

  442. Polina is good just for s..She is so dum and brainwashed that has no idea about real capacity of NATO or even Russia. She really needs someone to “train” her.

  443. He was dumb enough to force businesses to leave, dumb enough to invade Crimea, dumb enough to get involved in Syria, dumb enough to test air defenses (and lose) of other nations, etc etc etc

  444. This is all this idiot woman does. A pretty mouthpiece for the Russian propaganda ministry…This kind of literary crap belongs in the Enquirer.

  445. Most of Russia is ALREADY uninhabitable (undrinkable water, terrible roads, thuggish rulers allied with Mafia, terrible air pollution, no independent media)

  446. Doubt Putin wants an all out war. He like us ,
    has family and friends that he loves,and a country he loves. I doubt very much he would let Turkey force him into an all out everyone looses conflict.

  447. oh and OF COURSE, all those russian nuclear subs roaming around the world will just sit by while russia burns….

    god why are there such stupid lemmings?

  448. Them Missiles will be destroyed way before they can each the US. Hello; all is pointed towards Russia and China no surprises. By then Russia or China with less capable defense systems will have a rain on Nukes all over them shutting them ASAP! Ahhh and forgot Fatboy in NK you will not be the exception just in case you want a piece of Nuke Cake.

  449. You can’t tell the difference between an anti-Russian article and a pro-Russian one. Polina Tikhonova is a Ukrainian journalist who is strongly anti-Russian and as for america wiping Russian out, you are a fool. If there is going to be another World war, both Russia and America will be annihilated. You and many others underestimate Russia. They are not a 3rd World country.

  450. This is in response to the noisy propaganda originating from Washington that Russia is just a ‘regional’ power and the US is the only ‘global’ power. Besides, there are tons of lunatics in the DC which think Russia is just a “gas station”, they have to be reminded about reality.

  451. Lmao !! comments waiting to be approved by valuWalk… The truth will never be shown here, valuwalk will edit all of that… valuwalk, = communist trolls & putins puppets…. youre all scared to death The mighty USA is gonna burn down your red bear !!! lmao !!!

  452. This is a good example of why treaties are BS—the only, and I mean ONLY, reason Turkey shot those planes down and that their President is saying all this nonsense is b/c he thinks the U.S. will come to their aid. Sorry to the People of Turkey, but I sure as sh1t don’t want to be going to war on your behalf. I’m not giving Russia the OK for violating their airspace, but I am saying that if Turkey wants to go to war w/ Russia, then Turkey should drop out of NATO and start attacking Russia. Good luck to em

  453. Hahahahahaha here is where one comes to laugh at russkies naivety? Do they really believe that the $hit and delusiones they put on this web site would make or just help then win any war? Wars are won with weapons and strategy and we all know the US is years light ahead of losing russkies.

  454. Here she is at it again, I think she is secretly laughing herself into a frenzy, knowing full well that just
    because you have a flying CP does not mean you will be able to communicate anything, since the
    nuclear strikes from the US will more than likely destroyed any links from the ground. As programmed
    US Submarines after no communication from US flying CP or other communication systems or devices
    will do as they have been ordered to and unleash potentially 2900 nuclear warheads on the Russian
    mainland. Survivors for what? Winner of Total Environmental Disaster!! Life no longer sustainable, Underground survivors will have to stay there forever. If there is one disaster that has taught the world
    what nuclear contamination is like, only has to see what has happened to area around Chernobyl in
    Russia due to a domestic nuclear accident, multiply that by several thousand nuclear explosion and Chernobyl is like the proverbial pea in a pod in comparison. We do have to keep a high level of vigilance because we have had a habit of being asleep at the wheel on more than one occasion, the Russians from Putin on down to his lowlies would not like nothing better for us to be groggy when his lunacy finally gets
    the better of him and he thinks he is a winner. Shades of Hitler, Mussolini, and Stalin, I kind of believe he
    even thinks like they did.

  455. Obviously, the author of this B.S. article has been instructed by her bosses in Kremlin to create a false situation of nuclear war and “mighty mother Russia” in order to put pressure against European and USA readers. This is her fifth article in the last days which promotes this false alarming situation regarding the so called nuclear power of Russia and poor NATO and USA which will be the target of it. I don’t understand why yahoo is allowing this fake amator Russian propaganda which in my opinion is kind of journalistic terrorism.

  456. 30 FACTS
    ABOUT ISLAM

    1)
    “Islam”
    means “surrender” or “submission”. “Salam” (which
    means “peace”) is the root word of “Islam”. In a religious
    context the word “Islam” means “the surrendering of one’s will
    (without compulsion) to the true will of God in an effort to achieve
    peace”.

    2) “Muslim” means “anyone or
    anything that surrenders itself to the true will of God”. By this
    definition, everything in nature (trees, animals, planets, etc.) are
    “Muslims” because they are in a state of surrender to God’s will. In
    other words, they are fulfilling the purpose for which God created them.

    3) Islam is not a new religion or cult. It is
    a universal way of life and civilization. Studies show that between 1.5 and 1.8
    billion people in the world identify their religion as Islam. Along with
    Judaism and Christianity it traces its roots through Prophet Abraham and back
    to the first humans Adam and Eve.

    4) There are five pillars of practice in
    Islam. These practices must be undertaken with the best of effort in order to
    be considered a true Muslim: A) Declaration of faith in One God and that
    Muhammad is a prophet of God. B) Formal prayer five times a day. C) Poor-due
    “tax” – 2.5% of one’s excess wealth given to the needy once a year.
    D) Pilgrimage to Mecca at least once, if physically and financially able. E)
    Fasting during the daylight hours in the month of Ramadan.

    5) There are six articles of faith in Islam.
    These are the basic beliefs that one must have in order to be considered a true
    Muslim. They are belief in: A) the One God. B) all of the true prophets of God.
    C) the original scriptures revealed to Moses, David, Jesus and Muhammad. D) the
    angels. E) the Day of Judgment and the Hereafter. F) destiny.

    6) Islam is a complete way of life that
    governs all facets of life: moral, spiritual, physical, intellectual, social,
    economical, etc.

    7) Islam is one of the fastest growing
    religions in the world. To become Muslim, a person of any race or culture must
    say a simple statement, the shahadah, that bears witness to the belief in the
    One God and that Muhammad is a prophet of God.

    8) “Allah” is an Arabic word that
    means “God”. Muslims also believe that “Allah” is the
    personal name of God.

    9) Allah is not the God of Muslims only. He is
    the God of all people and all creation. Just because people refer to God using
    different terms does not mean there are different gods. Many Hispanics refer to
    God as “Dios” and many French refer to God as “Dieu” yet
    they mean the same God. Many Arab Jews and Arab Christians call God
    “Allah” and the word “Allah” (in Arabic script) appears on
    the walls of many Arab churches and on the pages of Arabic Bibles. Although the
    understanding of God may differ between the various faith groups, it does not
    change the fact that the One Lord and Creator of the Universe is the God of all
    people.

    10) The Islamic concept of God is that He is
    loving, merciful and compassionate. Islam also teaches that He is all-knowing
    and the perfect judge of affairs, and will punish (or forgive) accordingly.
    However, Allah once said to Muhammad, “My mercy prevails over my wrath”. So
    Islam teaches a balance between fear and hope, protecting one from both
    complacency and despair.

    11) Muslims believe that God has revealed 99
    of His names, or attributes, in the Qur’an. It is through these names that one
    can come to know the Creator. A few of these names are the All-Merciful, the
    All-Knower, the Protector, the Provider, the Near, the First, the Last, the
    Hidden and the Source of All Peace.

    12) The Christian concept of “vicarious
    atonement” (the idea that Jesus died for the sins of humanity) is alien to
    the Islamic concept of personal responsibility. Islam teaches that on the Day
    of Judgment every person will be resurrected and will be accountable to God for
    their every word and deed. Consequently, a practicing Muslim is always striving
    to be righteous while hoping and praying for God’s acceptance and grace.

    13) Muslims believe in all of the true
    prophets that preceded Muhammad, from Adam to Jesus. Muslims believe they
    brought the same message of voluntarily surrendering to God’s will (Islam, in a
    generic sense) to different peoples at different times. Muslims also believe
    they were “Muslims” (again, in a generic sense) since they followed
    God’s true guidance and surrendered their will to Him.

    14) Muslims neither worship Muhammad nor pray
    through him. Muslims solely worship the Unseen and Omniscient Creator, Allah.

    15) Muslims accept the original unaltered
    Torah (as revealed to Moses) and the original unaltered Bible (as revealed to
    Jesus) since they were revealed by God. But none of these scriptures exist
    today in their original form or in their entirety. Therefore, Muslims follow
    the subsequent, final and preserved revelation of God, the Qur’an.

    16) The Qur’an was not authored by Muhammad.
    It was authored by God, revealed to Muhammad (through angel Gabriel) and
    written into physical form by his companions.

    17) The original Arabic text of the Qur’an
    contains no flaws or contradictions, and has not been altered since its
    revelation.

    18) Actual 7th century Qur’ans, complete and
    intact, are on display in museums in Turkey and other places around the world.

    19) If all Qur’ans in the world today were
    destroyed, the original Arabic would still remain. This is because millions of
    Muslims, called “hafiz” (or “guardians”) have memorized the
    text letter for letter from beginning to end, every word and every syllable.
    Also, chapters from the Qur’an are precisely recited from memory in each of the
    five formal prayers performed daily by hundreds of millions of Muslims
    throughout the world.

    20) Some attribute the early and rapid spread
    of Islam to forced conversions by the sword. While it is accurate that the
    Muslim empire initially spread, for the most part, through battles and
    conquests (a common phenomenon for that time) the religion of Islam itself was
    never forced on anyone who found themselves living under Muslim rule. In fact,
    non-Muslims were afforded the right to worship as they pleased as long as a
    tax, called “jizyah”, was paid. During the Dark Ages, Jews, Christians
    and others were given protection by the Muslims from religious persecutions
    happening in Europe. Islam teaches no compulsion in religion (Qur’an 2:256 and
    10:99). For more, read “The Spread of Islam in the World” by Thomas
    Arnold.

    21) Terrorism, unjustified violence and the
    killing of non-combatant civilians (or even intimidating, threatening or
    injuring them) are all absolutely forbidden in Islam. Islam is a way of life
    that is meant to bring peace to a society whether its people are Muslim or not.
    The extreme actions of those who claim to be Muslim may be a result of their
    ignorance, frustration, uncontrolled anger or political (not religious)
    ambitions. Anyone who condones or commits an act of terrorism in the name of
    Islam is simply not following Islam and is, in fact, violating its very tenets.
    These people are individuals with their own personal views and agendas.
    Fanatical Muslims are no more representative of the true teachings of Islam
    than fanatical Christians are of the true teachings of Christianity or fanatical
    Jews are of the true teachings of Judaism. The most prominent examples of such
    “religious” fanatics are Anders Behring Breivik, the 2011 Norwegian terrorist
    who claimed in his manifesto to be “100 percent Christian” and Baruch
    Goldstein, perpetrator of the 1994 Hebron massacre who is considered by some
    Jews to be a “hero” and a “saint”. Extremism and fanaticism are problems not
    exclusive to Muslims. Anyone who thinks that all Muslims are terrorists should
    note that terror groups like ISIS (or ISIL), Al-Qaeda and Boko Haram kill
    Muslims as well. Also, the former boxer Muhammad Ali, perhaps the most
    celebrated person of our era, is a practicing Muslim.

    22) The word “jihad” does not mean
    “holy war”. It actually means “to struggle” or “to
    strive”. In a religious context it means the struggle to successfully
    surrender one’s will to the will of God. Some Muslims may say they are going
    for “jihad” when fighting in a war to defend themselves or others,
    but they say this because they are conceding that it will be a tremendous
    struggle. But there are many other forms of jihad which are much more relevant
    to the everyday life of a Muslim such as the struggles against laziness,
    arrogance, stinginess, one’s own ego, or the struggle against a tyrant ruler or
    against the temptations of Satan, etc. Regarding the so-called verses of
    “holy war” in the Qur’an, two points: A) The term “holy
    war” neither appears in the Arabic text of the Qur’an nor in any classical
    teachings of Islam. B) The vast majority of verses in the Qur’an pertaining to
    violence refer to wartime situations in which Muslims were permitted to defend
    themselves against violent aggression. Any rational, intellectual analysis of
    the context and historical circumstances surrounding such verses, often ignored
    by pundits or violent extremists, proves this to be true. Other verses of
    violence deal with stopping oppression, capital punishment and the like.

    23) Women are not oppressed in Islam. Any
    Muslim man that oppresses a woman is not following Islam. Among the many
    teachings of Muhammad that protected the rights and dignity of women is his
    saying, “…the best among you are those who treat their wives well.”

    24) Islam grants women many rights in the home
    and in society. Among them are the right to earn money, to financial support,
    to own property, to an education, to an inheritance, to being treated kindly,
    to vote, to a bridal gift, to keep their maiden name, to worship in a mosque,
    to a divorce, and so on.

    25) Muslim women wear the head-covering
    (hijab) in fulfillment of God’s decree to dress modestly. This type of modest
    dress has been worn by religious women throughout time such as traditional
    Catholic nuns, Mother Teresa and the Virgin Mary.

    26) Forced marriages, honor killings, female
    genital mutilation and the confinement of women to their homes are all
    forbidden in Islam. These practices stem from deeply entrenched cultural
    traditions and/or ignorance of the true Islamic teachings or how to apply them
    in society. Arranged marriages are allowed in Islam but are not required. In
    fact, one of the conditions for a valid Islamic marriage contract is the mutual
    consent of both parties to the marriage. And divorce is permissible provided
    the Islamic guidelines are followed which protect the rights of all affected
    parties, especially women and unborn children.

    27) Islam and the Nation “of Islam”
    are two different religions. Islam is a religion for all races and enjoins the
    worship of the One Unseen God who never took human form. On the other hand
    “the Nation” is a movement geared towards non-whites that teaches God
    appeared as a man named Fard Muhammad and that Elijah Muhammad was a prophet.
    According to orthodox Islam these are
    blasphemous beliefs that contradict the basic theology defined throughout the
    Qur’an and other authentic texts. The followers of “the Nation”
    adhere to some Islamic principles that are mixed with other practices and
    beliefs completely alien to authentic Islamic teachings. To better understand
    the differences read about Malcolm X, his pilgrimage to Mecca and his
    subsequent comments to the media. Islam teaches equality amongst the races
    (Qur’an 49:13).

    28) All Muslims are not Arab, Middle-Eastern
    or of African descent. Islam is a universal religion and way of life that
    includes followers from all races. There are Muslims in and from virtually
    every country in the world. Arabs only constitute about 20% of Muslims
    worldwide. The countries with the largest Muslim populations are not located in
    the Middle East. They are Indonesia (over 200 million Muslims) and Pakistan and
    India (over 350 million Muslims combined).

    29) In the five daily prayers Muslims face the
    Kaaba in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. It is a cube-shaped stone structure that was
    built by Prophet Abraham and his son Ishmael on the same foundations where
    Prophet Adam is believed to have built a sanctuary for the worship of the One
    God. Muslims do not worship the Kaaba. It serves as a focal point for Muslims
    around the world, unifying them in worship and symbolizing their common belief,
    spiritual focus and direction. Interestingly the inside of the Kaaba is empty.

    30) The hajj is an annual pilgrimage to the
    Kaaba made by about 3 million Muslims from all corners of the Earth. It is
    performed to fulfill one of the pillars of Islam. The rituals of hajj
    commemorate the struggles of Abraham, his wife Hagar and their son Ishmael in
    surrendering their wills to God.

  457. Ridiculous article. Putin is not suicidal. The idea that Russia would survive a nuclear war because its people are spread over a wider area, and this therefore is a reason to go nuclear is totally absurd. If Putin was so rash he would have annexed Ukraine long ago, but he played a much more cautious game, using the threat of doing so as a bargaining chip in future negotiations. Turkey won’t be shooting down any more Russian planes, and even if they do, NATO allies won’t be helping them.

  458. Just one Nuclear bomb on Yellow stone which is hardly to miss will destroy whole of USA. Also Russia has more than 10 different ways to deliver Nuclear bombs including from Arctic which is very difficult to trace.
    No NATO country will go for a Nuclear war with Russia for a country that runs by a Dictator family.
    It’s time to liberate Turkey from a lunatic dictator living in a 1,000 bedroom mansion.

  459. Guess what ?
    Russia will be radioactive ash before any Russian nukes can leave Russia and those will be destroyed in flight you dimwit.

  460. What a stupid story, full of bull. Russia and Putin would be totally stupid to use nukes for shooting down a plane that was in the wrong violating airspace. Other more credible stories indicate Russia has no desire to respond to Turkey with even a conventional strike, they plan to use sanctions and cut off natural gas at worst. Also really how does Russia have advantage over NATO, the US alone spends 42% of worlds military spending to Russia’s pitiful 6%, add in NATO countries and they spend over 60% of all military spending in the world. And as far as nukes, no one wins in using nukes. Both sides know that.

  461. State-of-the-art flying command center – apparently this author hasn’t
    ever been to an international air show, because if the author has
    he/she wouldn’t use the term state-of-the-art. American people don’t
    let this jack-ass scare you. Our technology far out weight anything
    Russia has and out missile defense will eliminate the threat before it
    reaches the US.

  462. State-of-the-art flying command center – apparently this author hasn’t ever been to an international air show, because if he the author has he/she wouldn’t use the term state-of-the-art. American people don’t let this jack-ass scare you. Our technology far out weight anything Russia has and out missile defense will eliminate the threat before it reaches the US.

  463. Russia Propaganda, the USSR has had the capability to destroy New York since the beginning and through out the cold war. Mutually assured destruction has been the deterrent. PUTINocchio is saber rattling through his propaganda channels.

  464. It doesn’t matter how powerful the US may think it is…under a ‘first strike’ condition and with the ‘silent service’ off of both coasts…it would take only minutes. I can remember the ‘games’ played in OPS and at the Command Centers…it was never a very nice picture…the only ones expected to retain any life were the higher ups in Washington if they were given ample time to move…
    If any of you retirees have ever seen some of the picture after the two drops on Japan…there would not even be the shadows left on the walls from the heat…I’ve seen both the unclassified and the classified versions of those pictures and their destruction when at much younger age.
    With the fools you allowed to be placed at the head of tables today, you should all be ashamed of yourselves.
    I would put my money on the old Italian Mafia…make the sign of the cross, kiss the ring and tell them to start cleaning up the kitchens…around the world. I can remember the days when you could ‘hate’ all you wanted, but you had to have ‘respect’. There is no respect today!

  465. Obviously writer of this
    article miss Polina Tikhonova exaggerating situation more than really is and
    She is not knowledgeable of the real situation on the ground . Totally luck of
    proper journalism research. She is not even familiar that capital of Turkey is
    Ankara and not Istanbul as she wrote in her article ” Putin to start dropping
    nuclear bombs on the Turkish capital of Istanbul, killing over nine million
    people” hmm.. so
    how can we believe in her story. Maybe she should rather write article for
    fortune teller magazine or blog she will make her name up there than article
    about politics without any fundamentals and knowledge.

  466. guess what? nobody will survive a nuclear war, even you and your family…so congratz on throwing more wood into the fire…idiot lemming

  467. I will say it again: citing Vladimir Zhirinovsky as if he were a rational source demonstrates that the writer is a fool or a propagandist. Vlad Z. is a rabble-rousing attention whore. His own people dismiss him.

  468. Cal Berkeley BS / MS molecular biology and chemistry double major. Harvard MD . Dad is the same, but went to Maryland and Harvard. I will put n20k dollars up at Chase Bank and you show up with your money! If I am not more educated than you–you keep the money! I doubt it. I have the cash to burn uneducated ignorant fool. Take me up on the offer. I am saving all these comments. We can have TV there too and match up stories! YOU ARE AN IDIOT! PIG! SLOTH FAT AS (S)

  469. So, lemme see if I understand this article – ONLY the United States has the right to possess such a plane?When some other nation develops it – it is doomsday? or imminent war? Is the article writer this daft?

  470. A few well placed would not only take out the humans, it would at the right altitude knock out almost all of the communication networks with the ‘electric magnetic pulse’ EMP; not to mention the possible water explosion with the same outcome as mentioned above on the Istanbul Strait.
    As to Turkey…I have never understood how this country has been allowed to remain as a ‘partner’ with NATO. Outside of the ties with the US and it’s use of bases…it has always been a corrupt nation. But, with the likes of those in DC…just the partners it is accustomed to dealing with! I don’t think NATO would risk the battle with Russia. Especially, if the current reports are true about the support of ISIS and it’s oil.

  471. LMFAO Everyone knows the truth but you! LOLOLOLOLOL Everyone else is ignorant! HAHAHAHAHAHA You are such a nut case! Hate us, but you are the wests and China’s be (atch) You are less educated, less a person, and just a person who knows he is wrong! Any troll knows and has a brain and can look up this stuff on his own. Hating all of us does not change facts nor make you more powerful—nothing but a weak deek country! Poor drunken pigs. LOL BYE TRASH! Facts are such stubborn things

  472. Mutually assured destruction. That is the doctrine we live by. Russia attacks NATO with one nuclear weapon and we are obligated along with nuclear partners Britain and France to respond in kind. This article needs a lot more work. I doubt Russian lawmakers are willing to destroy their country over the Turkey incident. Unless they are now a suicide cult. This Russian saber rattling is supposed to scare the world because they have very few supporters on the international scene if there was a war.

  473. Obviously writer of this
    article miss Polina Tikhonova exaggerating situation more than really is and
    She is not knowledgeable of the real situation on the ground . Totally luck of
    proper journalism research. She is not even familiar that capital of Turkey is
    Ankara and not Istanbul as she wrote in her article ” Putin to start dropping
    nuclear bombs on the Turkish capital of Istanbul, killing over nine million
    people” hmm.. so
    how can we believe in her story. Maybe she should rather write article for
    fortune teller magazine or blog she will make her name up there than article
    about politics without any fundamentals and knowledge.

  474. “Russia is not going to start a nuclear war.” Sounds familiar with leaders assuming passenger planes would never be used as bombs. Of course we know that outcome… Even though I personally believe it was an inside job.

    Anyways, never underestimate the impossible. Play with a countrys means of making money via freezing assets or choking it off financially, leads to some very dramatic outcomes evolving into major conflicts then into major world wars. Nuclear is the name of the game when it comes to super powers.

    If Russia did attack Turkey with nuclear armaments, it would certainly convince other world powers to reconsider toying with a psycho leader who would have no qualms with unleashing nuclear war upon this planet.

  475. The writer is a Russian propagandist. One nuclear strike on any NATO country will destroy Russia with in minutes. Putin is not as stupid as the writer thinks. Every nuclear threat keeps all the nuclear weapons pointed in Russia s direction, Russia is now less safe than before Putin.

  476. This article was written by a Russian woman, is this journalism or sponsored content? If there was an action taken by Russia as a act of total war, the US would fire missiles into space taking out there entire satellite cluster. A doomsday plane would be useless as would there communications and GPS guided ICBM’s. The US would nuke all of Russia’s naval bases rendering what ships and subs they had completely useless. Nato would probably take out MIR space station, and all forward operating bases as well as doing whatever it took to sink every Russian boat or sub that was currently deployed. Every Nato country would be on full alert until all Russian ballistic missile submarines were destroyed and sitting on the bottom of the ocean floor like the Kursk. An Rc-135a would scramble all Russian radar and B-2’s would penetrate Russian airpace and take out nuclear power facilities and hydro electric facilities. B-1’s would take out aircraft manufactures, tank manufactures, ammo depot’s, and major military installations like runways, missile silos. F-22’s, F-15’s would keep the skies clear over Russia while F-16’s would keep nearby countries airspace safe. E-6’s and E-4’s would fly off the coast and disrupt all ground communications. F-18’s would keep all airspace over water safe. This would not be Russia vs the US, but Russia vs the US and 27 other well funded and well armed nations. I am not scared one bit of Russia, or China or Pakistan or North Korea. Now take in account what the UK or Germany or Spain, Latvia, Croatia, Greece, Poland, Netherlands, France, or all the others in Nato would do.

  477. You really expect U.S.A and its Allies willing to go Nuclear war with Russia for Turkey? Willing to sacrifice New York, Washington, Boston, Los Angeles and other U.S cities and millions American lives and probably end of the world as we know it for Turkey?

  478. Polina Tikhonova is a Ukrainian born strongly anti -Russian journalist with very biased opinions, waste of time reading her articles.

  479. Let’s all join in and have a drink of Kool-Aid….realizing that our country is kinda on it’s own, and a nuclear attack would not affect too much of the exterior countries…I’d say Putin is in a very good position to wipe us out, and threaten the World…with subjugation. Kinda…out there…I know…what with other countries having nuclear capabilities…but, as you know…many are comfortable in their skins, and would say…the USA deserved it.

  480. The Article is saying When and If Russia attack Turkey if Erdogan continue his arrogant and confrontational rhetoric against Russia and if NATO come to Turkey’s defense Russia have to use Nuclear to fight NATO. Western Allies should kick Turkey out of NATO. Turkey is more a liability than an asset or get Erdogan out of the office Turkey is trying to drag NATO in its dispute with Russia and start WW3

  481. well who invented the nuclear warheads , and believing that nato is a ship without weapons is stupid , who knows about all the classified information and secret weapons nato has that is greater than a nuclear worhead.

  482. When I see the Commander in Chief walking around with his head up his arse, and the Russians see the same thing, and conjecture that Obama won’t see the nukes coming…they take advantage. If the Medias are doing the same things, and support Obama for sensationalism…well this one’s going way over their heads.

  483. Doesn’t Russia realize that only the US is entitled to push other countries around?
    American Exceptionalism you know.
    We had better fix the UN while we have a chance.

  484. NATO (America) has the same type of plane, so what’s the story. Can’t blame Russia for preparing as it’s starting to look like there will be another World War.

  485. And while we may want to think that none of that can happen…. It can if we allow it to. If we ignore it and do and say nothing, it most certainly will happen. Anything can happen, even the worst things imaginable, they can happen too, you know. And the worst things imaginable WILL happen if we let them happen. So do not just be so quick as to brush it off as an impossibility. You and I both know that it is possible. Likely? No, probably not, but still very much possible.

    The surest way to defeat is the route of arrogance. Let us keep our arrogance in check. Let us not get carried away by our own American bravado. We may be very brave, and we are, but let us not be stupid.

  486. Polina, thanks for your report, as always great work. My family has a background in Military and what Polina is saying is truth. Russia will win this war, and I hope they do so that the real terrorists in Washington and all NATO countries are eliminated. God bless Christian Russia and bless you Polina. Please keep your reports coming, I am anxiously waiting for them.

    ???? ????????.

  487. Yes .. click on my comments to see All the Ignorant people I try to correct such as good old better than you Steve … enough said ! weirdo is your answer , weak .

  488. Last I checked, the capital of Turkey is Ankara, not Istanbul. Istanbul is, however, Turkey’s largest city in terms of total population. I seriously doubt Putin is stupid enough to nuke Istanbul seeing as how his navy & other Russian cargo vessels depend upon the Bosporus, the small strait that connects the Mediterranean Sea with the Sea of Marmara, the Aegean Sea, & the Black Sea, where Russia’s navy currently resides. If Putin were to nuke Istanbul, it would not only destroy Istanbul, but also trap the Russian Navy within the Black Sea, rendering it helpless & ripe for the picking by NATO. To put it simply, Russia’s Black Sea Navy would be annihilated.

  489. You see? wikipedia create sooooo many experts, and DISQUS soooo many “personalities”, or so they think. Stupidity is recognizable beyond the nickname!

  490. Lol … No one below you but the ground Moron ! Do you even understand /read what you post … didn’t think so ! I am an American that dislikes Ignorance of people like you , An education would be a plus if you had one ! .

  491. What a ridiculous set of assumptions and speculation stemming from Russia finally finishing their command center in the sky which we have had for decades and decades. Russia is not going to start a nuclear war. Stop trying to scare people.

  492. I have a business that sells online world-wide, and Russia is the only place I don’t sell to because the buyers never get their packages. They always get lost (or stolen). It is hard to take a county seriously when they can’t even get a package delivered.

  493. There are no winners. You save your hair but lose your head. Besides being a burned out
    cinder the Earth would have radioactive poisoning.

  494. Again Tikhonova talks about Russia willing to use nukes and makes a big deal about a command aircraft.
    Tikhonova doesn’t seem to be aware that Russia is surrounded by US nuclear armed submarines that are armed at all times that carry hundreds of nuclear war heads.
    Threats like the ones that Tikhonova uses shows that Russia is running scared.
    Russia is out gunned in every military category and knows it.
    The USA will nuke Russia if it fires any nuke at a NATO member. So will Great Britain and France.
    All the Russians can do is Bluff and Bullsh*t. :o)

  495. Any Article from this ValueWalk writer i noticed its not serious i checked all the articles this whole month its exaggerated big time,

  496. Pure crap article. Right for one plane, Putin will go ballistic and start a nuclear war with NATO. Even more funny was the statement that Russia is allying with Pakistan (hahahahahaha) that is the joke of the century. The author conveniently forgets who is providing military aid of over tens of billions of dollars to Pakistan over the last couple of years :)

  497. The Japanese thought we’d sue for peace and didn’t have the guts to go the distance, Russia and China thought we’d run from Korea and Viet Nam. Viet Nam was lost politically at home but we showed willingness to suffer losses and not give up, even when our allies are less than useless. After Tet, the South was completely in our control but Walter Cronkite, a closeted progressive, snatched defeat from the jaws of victory, saying the war wasn’t winnable. the truth was that the NVA was finally forced to engage openly in the open in mass and we could have bombed them senseless.

  498. LMFAO LMFAO YOU ARE WAY BENEATH ME! YOU do NOT have my education level! You would be the moron! LOLOLOLOL KNOW YOUR FACTS! Hating America does NOT make you number 1–You are so far behind China and the west! You are way beneath me too! LOLOLOL IGNORANT TROLL MORON GROSS RUSSIAN WANNA BEE TROLL! I will NEVER stfu when it deals with trash from Russia. LOL GROSS idiot–u are either fat or gay.

  499. yeah, obviusly since your level of intellect is on the same level with your pets, how could I not take this fact undunder consideration – A XA XA
    Typical situation for narrow minded people who can’t sustain their point of view simply becasue of incuffienet education level…

  500. Pocka loser, time for me to go home to my family and I just bet when I get home they’ll have me a hot meal and a hug waiting on me. You Russian men losers don’t understand anything like that. You’re to in love with yourselves and Putin. Reckon why many 1000’s of Russian women want to leave Russia for American husbands? I did 17 years ago…wahooooo life has been and is good here in America with my American husband, three Russian, one American and one Russian-American daughters. Oh, our Russian daughters consider themselves American and not Russian.

  501. In 2013, the Smith-Mundt Act, which prohibited the U.S. Government from using propaganda against American citizens was quietly repealed. Articles like this one are the result…

  502. Ditto … when you know All the facts and quit being Ignorant you might be able to call someone else ignorant names ! Until then , STFU Moron !

  503. In case you didn’t comprehend … read again , I only insult Ignorant Morons like yourself !
    ” when you know All the facts and quit being Ignorant you minght be able to call someone else ignorant names ! Until then , STFU Moron ! “

  504. Putin is a pragmatist and will no more risk the survival of Mother Russia than any of the other Russian leaders have. The closest was Khrushchev and he backed off.

    As for them bombing Istanbul, I’m sure they (the Russians) know what resides at tab ‘v’ at Incirlik AFB a NATO base.

  505. Have big enough IQ to know you are an Idiot without a clue ! Telling us you a Surgeon doesn’t help your Ignorance on the subjects you commenting … Sad , Lol !
    Let Us know where so we can avoid … really !

  506. Well written.. Nonetheless.. None of these scenarios will happen.. A pre-emptive nuclear attack more than likely would result in MAD(Mutual Assured Destruction). No one.. Including Putin is crazy enough.. to test this theory.

  507. Carrie … are you really that Ignorant or trying to be coy ? In either case, Ignorance is showing . The Atlas V engine issue has been on News and in Congress debates , where you get Facts ? Oh , you don’t need any for Ignorant comments !

  508. Ha ha … Your description of Trump fits Barrack O as well as Bernie to a Tee … The same Ignorant voters that voted in Obama are still there for You to organize ! get with it … Sanders ?? God help US against it’s Ignorant voters !

  509. SHE is talking about Russia/Putin , genius ! Is time 4 you to STFU or discuss with your Husband before you post , at least !

  510. Oh look, Polina is at it again trying to convince the world that Russia’s might is superior to everyone else’s! Keep the comedy coming, Polina!

  511. valuewalk rights some serious garbage in their articles. all they do is write rumors and propaganda with lies and twistwed truths. it seems like they are trying to start a fight between Russia and NATO.

  512. so this ignorant auther of this article thinks Russia is going to drop a nuclear bomb on istanbull and kill 9 million people because turkey shot down one plane and killed two pilots

  513. thanks for supporting my arrogant nature, at least it is based on historical roots which seems not to be the case with you. Keep laughing Carrie, I would highly recommend to watch ALL US channels that more or less broadcasting political events- the best circus one could possibly imagine , as you said full of BS and fake statements….perhaps my recommendation would dractically increase level of daily “laughing” ….

  514. And I just read your post! LMFAO You do nothing but insult everyone! Look at your stuff by clicking on your screen name! You do this to everyone! Go see a health professional maggot loser! TRASH!

  515. YOU KNOW! Facts are stubborn things! I suggest you do your research! The west and China are way ahead of broke Russia! Until you have an BS/MS from Cal Berkeley and an MD from Harvard maggot, you will be beneath me Russian low life troll! Must have hit a nerve —you 300 lbs too? LMFAO ENJOY BEING subservient to China and the west loser broke country with only a big mouth. In Texas we say all hat and NO cattle! HAHAHAHA LOSER MAGGOT

  516. Are they going to be selective or indiscreet and destructive to us all so Adam and Eve should start looking for the fig leaf/

  517. Can somebody give me a link with Polina Tikhinova ‘s picture so I could drop my own sticky bombs on her face. Oh yeah drops from my own sticky bomb launcher.

  518. why? Turkey was a loyal servant of western interests over 63 years and got almost nothing back in return.. Now Turkey has legally downed a Russian aircraft and did nothing wrong. But some monkeys like you in the USA suggest ” Turkey out of Nato now “. It would make Turkey an immediate nuclear power. All nuclear bombs in Incirlik would be seized by the Turkish government and military and Turkey may emerge an authentic muslim power..Go ahead make it out ! Make my day!

  519. I’ll bust your arrogant Russian male ego for you…I don’t watch CNN nor any news for that matter. I’ve watched RT a few times when I was bored and needed a good laugh, same for answering you Russian trolls Kremlin bs lies.

  520. I doubt very seriously any of Putin’s commanders would fire a nuke unless they had been fired at them. Putin is a psychopath.

  521. ruSSia is a Fascist state!!!
    putin is a Hitler of 21 century!
    FSB is a Gestapo!
    ruSSian trolls here – Goebbels propaganda!
    All together its called “Russian World” or RuSSism!
    The fight with Fascism, Communism and RuSSism must never stop until they all completely destroyed!!!

  522. We all agree certainly that Russian leaderhip is fairly irrational and out of reality. However, they are purely materialistic and therefore value their watches and bank accounts abroad alive rather than dead. Thus Polina speculation with nuclear war and logically suicide for the whole Russia is baseless.
    What is necessary though is a solid but proportional counter measure for their oppression and harrassment of their neighbours. So far the responses have been too weak and allowed Russian leadership to invest too much into war machinery and mongering.

  523. Sanders- you can screw yourself, just go and do it!!! Look atUS leaders, especially current one- joke for an entire world, not to mention the whole rotten society, with national debt higher that an entire BRIC and EU, Asia combined. As for a precision missiles- screw your self again, more innocent civilians that were killed by US air strikes in Belgrad would be hard to imagine, when these bastards were constantly bombing Cristian people to support dirty muslims from Albania!!! We could continue on and on , im certain the truth is not on your end….

  524. @ Steve … when you know All the facts and quit being Ignorant you minght be able to call someone else ignorant names ! Until then , STFU Moron !

  525. Russia nukes anyone it should be wright patt airforce base in Ohio first..But what do I know lol..Good luck. But, it is very unmanly to make threats. Put up or shut up.

  526. It is very well known fact that ruSSian fascist dictator putler want to start nuclear war and just looking for the pretext.
    ruSSian fascist dictator putler must be kept in check.

  527. That will be useless in time of nuclear war. The only time there will e nuclear was is when one side decides that life is not worth living. There are those in the Russian control that already think that is true just like the U.S. has in their ghettos. The only reason for their existence is to breed and kill and then do it again.

  528. Russian mentality:
    The ‘muricans have nuclear weapon? WE must have MORE nuclear weapons.
    The ‘muricans have space ship? WE must have space ship.
    The ‘muricans plan on being the first on the moon? WE must be FIRST on the moon!
    The ‘muricans have Air Force One? WE must have Air Force One.
    The ‘muricans plan on being the first on Mars? WE… well WE… still need to get to the moon first…
    The Russians are just trying to catch up. They’re jealous of ‘murica’s accomplishments and want to be the most powerful nation in the world but always fall short in everything that they do.

  529. Send in the Donald Trump, he’ll straighten out this Tom Foolery. Until then the locals will continue to be alarmed by this hot chic!

  530. America supplied 25% of the vehicles Russia used in WW2. Russia (after having STUPIDLY signing a TREATY with Hitler), could never have won the war without America.

  531. hey polina! can i have a night with you before the russians drop the first nclear b0mb. i have my own devastating b0mb that you could not imagine

  532. This writer needs her throat slashed. ALL HER ARTICLES ARE DOOMSDAY! LMFAO I BET SHE IS A HUGE HEIFER AND WEIGHS OVER 300 lbs! THE USA AND EUROPE ARE NOT FRIGHTENED! BUT SHE SHOULD BE WITH THAT RUSTY EQUIPMENT RUSSIA HAS! CHINA HAS PASSED THEM IN CAPABILITY!

  533. hey polina! can i have a night with you before the russians drop the first nuclear bomb. i have my own devastating bomb that you could not imagine

  534. Why?, I could care less about Russian made engines. I drive a Hummer and it doesn’t have a Russian made engine in it and gets me anywhere I need to go.

  535. Doubtful.
    God HAS blessed Russia…horrible climate, terrible roads, thugs as leaders and people too stupid to think for themselves!

  536. Nuclear war is imminent!!!! Polina’s hair is on fire!!!! The sky is falling!!!! We’re all doomed!!!! I pee’d my pants!!!! Blah blah blah!!!! Snorkle, forkle, borkle!!!! I want to be the editor of “ValueWalk!!!!

  537. Russia is full of alcoholic men who chain smoke cigarettes and beat their wives. Their leader has stolen billions of dollars from their people and have murdered countless innocent civilians with their “precision” missiles. Their economy is collapsing and they have no real allies. They’re already destroyed. But hey, at least they still have their nukes.

  538. I like how there are reports that claim Russia can destroy NATO but only if they use Nuclear weapons… well duh, because they have the most stockpiled amount in the world. However, no one has actually used a nuclear weapon in a war since the US dropped two on Japan in WWII. Plus Russia will be destroyed too if that were to happen.

  539. The russians are light-years ahead in Space and Aerospace technology. The Atlas V rockets are still using russian engines. Most military rockets in the USA are using russian made engines.

  540. I was born and raised in Russia and one thing I never did when I was still living there and one thing I don’t do now is believe all the bs propaganda coming from there and I sure as heck don’t believe anything you Kremlin paid trolls say.

  541. I can see Russia ”thinking” China may be good to ally with. But I hardly see China ready to be Russia’s bitch…more like the other way around. China would most definitely regret it later. Even China has the support and protection from the USA if they warrant it. So did Russia not so long ago…but with Putin..they have returned to Cold War type mentality again…and now are the single most dangerous threat to peace in the world…even more of a threat than Muslims. What a shame, the recent 180 degree turn Russia has taken recently. Seemingly all this negative turn of events during Obama’s years. Before Obama took office…Russia was on the verge of almost becoming ”friendly” with NATO…and even become a major tourist destination. But no longer. There are several good reason’s to explain why China has been around for what…about 10,000 years? In the end…all major nations need to get along with China…and vice versa. Or…better put…how ”all”the major powers need to acknowledge how they need to get along and be friends. I think China understand that better than Russia does. I think if China were to choose who it would rather ally with…ultimately, it would be the USA. At least we would hope so. Russia is simply a bully…virtually just a terrorist nation….and I think most other major nations share that view of it.

  542. Turkey is just a drity country with dirty leaders, NATO is just a puppet of USA. Russia can destroy NATO within few minutes. God Bless Russia

  543. I do. They explored the Space while the americans were watching. And today they ship american astronauts aboard their Soyuz spacecraft.

  544. The purpose of this article is to make people alarmed. Since the U.S. already has a command center like this, the Russians just wanted to even out the odds a little by also having one. No big deal.

  545. you only have the current administration to blame for this current Russian aggression. Putin know obama’s weak and a push over, he knows this president isn’t gonna do a damn thing about it. remember the red line Obama called out on Syria for using chem weapon, if he isn’t gonna do a damn thing about something that was suppose to be a serious as that, whats he gonna do now! oh yeah my bad he said he going for a ‘political solution’ as in bend over and take it.

  546. Would they really risk Nuclear War ???? What would be left for them to eat from, to drink from? So if they are so ignorant to do this its all over. And those dispersed people who survive the 2nd attack the fallout will finish them off. How can anyone think this is survivable. And it will take only one bomb to set off the chain of events

  547. Every plane Russia makes is a doomsday plane. Who in their right mind would fly on a Russian made plane. I was born and raised in Russia and I won’t fly on one nor let my family fly on one. My American husband says riding the trains in Russia is about as bad as transportation can get lol. He hates that 15 hour over night train ride from Moscow to my city in Russia lol.

  548. If Russia won Wold War Two in Berlin, and ended that war, while the americans and frenchies were trying to swim across the English Channel and dropped two atomic bombs in Japan almost a year later, as american political propaganda, while the war was already over. Then I don’t see any problem now, I believe Russia can win World War Three as well.

  549. I doubt it will ever come to a full blown out war, of course I’m not a seer, nor a descendant of Nostradamus, but what I can truly say is if NATO, America, Europe continue with this new way, old by other standards, my way or the highway, it could force Russia to start an apocalyptic doomsday.
    NATO, America are really busy these days deposing regimes, illegally I might add, left and right, meaning all sides, not leftist or right regimes. Everybody has to eat and I don’t blame the author for instilling fear on an already maniac panic driven citizenry. That is how the government makes a supposed democracy subservient to its wishes, in other word, back to the USSR of old.
    Who could have thought that the hated label of police state was going to reside, permanently, within America’s shores. I recall, like it was yesterday, how much Americans despised those two words: Police state, now claiming for more. Even Stalin would be proud of America now. Maybe this is what Nikita Kruschev referred to when he said that communism would bury capitalism: With fear. Actually, that is the same motto Al Qaeda, and ISIS use to scare an already scared to death nation. I do have a bone to pick with the stupid voters, why these clowns, the voters, keep electing such mentally challenged people with no light at the end of the tunnel.
    Why would someone vote for a Donald Trump? He is mentally challenged, a racist, misogynistic, a fraud, a bigot, liar, stubborn and a coward vs a guy like Bernie Sanders, the antithesis of that loser with capital L. The only way to explain this maze of insanity has to be masochism and DT’s many accolades.
    O tempora, o mores! If there were Olympics for mental retardation based on facts, America would take gold, silver and bronze medals, but then again why?

  550. Actually your the one that read it and actually believes this is a true story. So who’s getting dumber and dumber now?

  551. Me Natasja russians France Uk killed muslims last 500 years Turks and a15 wars last 400 years last war was Crimea.1899.But USA is killing muslim childrens last 30-40 years you all childmurdres gonna pay som how, let us live our home so we dont come to you,, too easy is that,

  552. I can’t believe you idiots read this garbage. It’s warping your already tiny brains. How would “The Enquirer” or “The Onion” stay in business if it wasn’t for your fools. At least your creating American jobs!

  553. Same here… I do the same for anything from this “ValueWalk” or the other crackpot publications Yahoo seems to promote.

  554. You could detonate every nuclear bomb on this planet and still the earth would survive alot of dead people but the planet would go on…

  555. this is all hype. russia cannot afford to go to war. it cannot beat NATO. It is a political suicide by a desperate Putin.

  556. YES they are “JUST” Ready its news! They weren’t ready in the cold war, or anything else, they JUST got ready amazing, ready to keep sabre ratting through these moronic authors I guess. They nuke, we nuke, humanity dies. Go ahead and try if you want that saying your ready for the last 50 years doesn’t mean jack shi.t. Besides nobody hates Russia anyway, only their mafia-like takeovers of land tries over the last 70 years and their brutality against their own people and others.

  557. Putin knows he cannot defeat NATO in conventional war thats why they are threatening Nuclear their last resort in order not to be humiliated by them when they are defeated in the war.

  558. She is so full of crap… a nuclear war would not just destroy a few continents… it would destroy the world. If there is to be battle… put the so-called leaders and politicians that talk so tough in a cage and let them fight it out. As for the rest of us who enjoy life… lets enjoy a nice dinner.

  559. Mr. Putin is not looking to destroy NATO but the head of the snake the ONE that makes the lives of the Russians very complicated to live and if Mr. Putin goes to war this is going to be the END to all of us; the whole world with all the Politicians are making this world very difficult to live at and the 3rd. World War it is just around the corner and no one will stop this madness.

  560. Looks like anyone, with any kind of crap, can get published. This kind of articles is just to try and get our people up in arms. Don’t pay any mind to them.

  561. Thanks for telling us which plane to hit first. . The writer has no idea of the destruction 100- 500 mukes would cause – Even if life survives it won’t be Russia anymore.
