Why Putin is unveiling -invincible- nuclear weapons now ?


Entrepreneur | Posted on

Even with no blatant display of nuclear power, the countries around the world are always in this race of who can outdo who in arms. USA, China, Russia, Israel, India, North Korea, France, Pakistan, and so many more, even with proper regulations outlined on the international level – which, itself, is nothing more than an audacious measure of western powers to limit others’ defensive (or offensive) capabilities – all these countries continue to invest extensively in the Nuclear power.

So, it wasn’t a surprise in the inner-circle when Russian President Vladimir Putin unveiled to the world “invincible” nuclear weapons back in March (2018). Despite the growing bromance between Trump and Putin, the heat between the two countries will always exist. So, irrespective of what the current diplomatic strategies between them are, there will always be a war brewing between them, be it ideologue or socio-political. Meaning, both the USA and Russia, along with other countries, will always be racing to outdo each other in nuclear weapons. It’s hard to believe that the American government wasn’t already working on underground nuclear projects even without Putin’s invincible nuclear weapon announcement.

Now, coming to the invincible nuclear weapons of the Russians, we certainly cannot take everything President Vladimir Putin says at face value. The government there has always been known to spread propaganda, be it against its own people or the foreign power.

In his annual state of the nation speech in March, Russian President Vladimir Putin described the invincible nuclear weapons as “"low-flying, difficult-to-spot cruise missile... with a practically unlimited range and an unpredictable flight path, which can bypass lines of interception and is invincible in the face of all existing and future systems of both missile defence and air defence.”

The video presentation that he presented along the speech showed missiles hitting US state of Florida.

Now, again, this all can very well be a propaganda. One, because back then, the election in Russia was only a couple of weeks away, where Putin eventually secured a landslide victory and 4th term as the country’s president. In Russia, the emotions against the USA is always high; rather like how it is in India against Pakistan. So, Putin could have easily manipulated that feeling to garner votes by bashing the USA through its Nuclear muscle-flex.

In addition, it’s also not hard to point out that this whole theory of invincible nuclear weapons is a complete farce. The Russian President Vladimir could have blatantly lied—because, why not!

Now, sadly, we’re seeing countries like Australia and Bangladesh investing a big chunk in Nuclear weapons.
