Be careful, next President of the United States. Whether you’re Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, you’ll have to choose your words right before saying something to Russia.
That’s the message Russia sends less than two weeks before U.S. Presidential election.
Moscow has just unveiled the first image of its revolutionary thermonuclear intercontinental ballistic missile capable of destroying an area the size of Texas.
At this year's Sohn Investment Conference, Dan Sundheim, the founder and CIO of D1 Capital Partners, spoke with John Collison, the co-founder of Stripe.

Yes, Russia has finally unveiled the Satan 2 nuclear missile (official name: RS-28 Sarmat missile) after working on it over 5 years. This is the nuclear weapon the Russian government has been referring to over the past two years, when threatening Washington with a nuclear attack.
Satan 2 nuclear missile: Destroy Texas in ONE blow
By unveiling the Satan 2, Russian President Vladimir Putin has just pulled a winning card from his sleeve.
The Satan 2, which is about 2,000 times as powerful as the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagaski in 1945, can now become a strong counter-argument every time the U.S. considers using force against Russia.
Russia has long manifested reckless actions when it comes to the nuclear war game, so the U.S. and its next President will have to think twice before using any kind of military force against Russia or its allies.
The news comes just days after Russia wrapped its emergency nuclear drills involving over 40 million civilians and military personnel. This is the first time Russia has involved so many of its civilians with the goal to prepare for nuclear or chemical-weapons attacks.
Does US stand a chance to survive Satan 2 nuclear attack?
As sad and terrifying as it would sound for Americans (and as satisfying as it would sound to Putin and his war-driven Army generals), but the U.S. doesn’t have weapons that would match the Satan 2 in terms of nuclear power.
Here are a few interesting things you should know about the Satan 2:
The Satan 2 has a payload capable of destroying an area the size of Texas (meaning: Russia would need only a few Satans to wipe out the East Coast of the United States. And without the East Coast, it wouldn’t take much effort to bulldoze the rest of the country).
The Satan 2 is capable of evading radar defenses, which means the U.S. won’t see a nuclear attack coming (meaning: U.S. would be defeated even before some guy in Pentagon opens his mouth to say, ‘Look, it’s a nuc…’)
The Satan 2 can travel far enough to launch a nuclear attack on the East and West Coast of the U.S. (and that’s while the U.S. has no idea those nuclear-powered missiles are flying towards their territory).
The Satan 2 was unveiled just weeks after Russia pulled out of a nuclear nonproliferation agreement it signed with the United States.
Nuclear War becomes real
As frightening and unrealistic as it may sound, but a nuclear war, which would change humanity once and for all, has never been more real than today.
It’s unclear whether Putin knows what he’s doing when he threatens the U.S. with the revolutionary nuclear weapon, but the Satan 2 is no child games.
There are signs that suggest that Putin and Russia as a whole have gone mad on nuclear war preparations. And with the U.S. Presidential election just around the corner, it’s unclear how the reckless Putin may play his winning card (which is Satan 2) against the U.S.
The U.S. is largely divided over the Presidential election, and those hot-headed military and strategic advisors of Putin’s have definitely suggested the Russian President to strike the U.S. while it’s weak, as there may be no other juicy chance like this in the nearest future.
But is Putin really prepared to unleash an all-out, all-destructive nuclear war?
There are numerous signs that, if don’t prove that Putin is willing to take up nuclear weapons soon, than at least indicate that Russia is preparing for the possibility of an imminent nuclear war.
Russia gone mad on nuclear war preparations
Since U.S.-Russia talks on Syria crumbled apart recently, Russia has pulled out of a nuclear nonproliferation agreement it signed with the U.S. last century.
Russia has recently deployed its nuclear-capable missiles straight to its border with the West and stationed them in Kaliningrad. Shortly afterwards, the Russian government threatened “painful” actions against the U.S. if it imposes new sanctions on Russia over Syria.
Moreover, Russia’s recent largest civil defense drills since the Cold War era involving 40 million Russians doesn’t exactly make us optimistic about a peaceful no-war future.
Russia’s state-run media has also been ramping up its pro-war, anti-Western rhetoric, as if preparing Russians for something big.
In his recent interview with the Wall Street Journal, Lev Gudkov, head of the Russian polling group Levada-Center, said “most people believe that the Third World War has begun, but right now we are still in the cold phase of the war, which may or may not turn into a hot war.”
What better way to prepare your people for a war than to tell them that you’re already at war and point with your index finger at the enemy?
US is not safe and protected from Russia after all
So how will Putin play his winning card? The Russian President knows that the U.S. is acting overly cautious in Syria, which is why he constantly tests how cool-headed America can really be.
Which is why Russia recently installed a new missile defense battery in Syria, giving America little to no options as to how to intervene without triggering a direct military confrontation between Russia and American soldiers.
The thing about the U.S. is that it has long been playing with its ‘mutually assured destruction’ plan (meaning: not using its nuclear weapons before the enemy does, and having a powerful nuclear arsenal that would counter the enemy in case of nuclear war).
But can the U.S. really deter a nuclear attack from Russia if Putin uses the new, radar-invisible Satan 2 nuclear missiles?
And what’s up with this whole ‘save our entire population from nuclear attack’ thing? Russian officials recently declared they now have nuclear bunkers capable of holding 12 million people to shelter them from a nuclear attack.
In fact, sources cited by RIA Novosti insist that Russia is currently developing a plan to shelter 100% of Russia’s population from a nuclear attack. So what is it? ‘Save ours, wipe out all others’? Has Putin gone completely mad?
