Putin: Arms Race Began When U.S. Opted Out Of Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty

On March 2, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin rejected accusations that he had revived an arms race by unveiling Russia’s new nuclear deterrent.

During an interview with NBC’s “Megyn Kelly Today”, the Russian President said that the arms race had begun when U.S. President George W. Bush ended the 30-year-long Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty in 2002.

“My point of view is the individuals who is said that a new Cold War has started are not really analysts. They do propaganda. If you were to speak about arms race, then an arms race began at exactly the time and moment when the U.S. opted out of the anti-ballistic missile treaty,” Putin said.

While most main stream media promoted an announcement of Russia’s new nuclear deterrent as the beginning of a new “cold war”, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) took a different approach. Its spokeswoman Dana White claimed that the U.S. wasn’t “surprised” by Putin’s announcement.

“These weapons that are discussed have been in development a long time … We weren’t surprised by his [Putin’s]statements … The American people should rest assured that we are fully prepared,” White said.

Other Pentagon officials went into offensive and told Fox News that the nuclear-powered global-range cruise missile, which had been unveiled by Putin, is not operational yet and that it is still in the research and development phase. According to The Drive, one official even claimed that the US had seen the missile crashing in all of its tests .

When asked about these claims regarding the new Russian nuclear weapons, Putin dismissed these rumors and stressed that all the weapon systems that he revealed on March 1 had  been successfully testes.

“All of those tests were successful. it’s just each of these weapons systems is at a different stage of readiness. One of them is already on combat duty. It’s with troops,” Putin told NBC’s presenter Megyn Kelly.

Putin’s new statement will likely cause another wave of rumors by the mainstream media, that appears to be determined to hold Moscow the responsibility for the current complicated situation in the Middle East and Europe.

    The sooner that the US can be dejudified, the better that it will be for the American people and humanity. The whole planet should be dejudified to create a Jew free world that will be much better for the human race.

          “Discounting the Official Narrative as the absurdity it so clearly is, there are just two organisations on the entire planet with the expertise, assets, access and political protection necessary to have both executed 9/11 and effected its cover-up to date (ie the means). Both are Intelligence Agencies – the CIA and the Israeli Mossad whose motives were arguably the most compelling. Those motives dovetailed perfectly with the Neocon PNAC agenda, with it’s explicitly stated need for “…a catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor” [1] in order to mobilise US public opinion for already planned wars, the effects of which would be to destroy Israel’s enemies.”

        Yes Zionists are fascists, neocons are also fascists, but not all Jews are Zionists, and not all Americans are neocons.

        I can understand how many Americans are concerned by how many of the ruling class are Jewish, but face reality, Jews value education, most Christian Americans don’t.
        If you don’t like the status quo, it is easily changed, simply educate every American child equally regardless of religion. Do that, and in 2 or 3 generations, there will be more smarter Christians than Jews.

        • RichardD

          All Jews are mass pedophile rape cultists that don’t belong in government, finance, media and academia. Their criminal organization should be outlawed.

          There are many many more educated Christians than Jews in the US. Saying that Christian Americans don’t value education is absurd.

          Christians are taught to treat people fairly. Jews are taught to be parasites to exploit non Jews. Jews collectively gravitate to control positions in society to victimize the host society. They’ve done it throughout their history, which is why they’re the most expelled and genocided group in history.

      Are you again talking about genocide and hate mongering?

      • RichardD

        You keep making false genocide allegations like a lying Jew raised to lie. You’ve read my calls to outlaw your evil cult as the criminal organization that it is. And then misrepresent enforcing the law against mass baby rapers by putting the sex offenders in prison as genocide to try to distract attention from all of their crimes that they’re guilty of.

          :DDDD

          • RichardD

            I’ve told the truth, you’ve lied repeatedly. Because you don’t want to debate Jew crime and evil because you know that the Jews are guilty. So you make false allegations against truthers to try to divert attention from your evil cult’s crimes.

            You are posting like an idiot: Smell you later.

          • RichardD

            You’re the evil Jew pedophile mass rape cult supporter, not me. That makes you the idiot. I’m trying to get the problem corrected, you’re trying to prevent that.

      • RichardD

        This thread is full of solid evidence against Jew crime and evil. And your response is to falsely criticize the truther posting it as a genocidalist and hate monger. That shows were your head is at and the type of miscreant that you are.

      • RichardD

        You’re the one who keeps talking about genocide, as Jews endlessly do, not me.

        What is it about:

        “Your evil cult should be outlawed to dejudify the planet.”

        that you don’t understand?

        Genocide means kill, outlaw means to ban, make illegal. They’re two entirely different things.

    • Sinbad2

      You can’t blame the Jews for America, Americans chose to become the evil empire, and reaffirm choice every election.

      • RichardD

        Americans voted against Israel first and perpetual Jew wars and Trump campaigned on, and after getting in office he threw them under the bus to get the Jews off his back. America didn’t vote for this and are trying to get rid of it:

    (I know this post is not related to the article, but there was no other place to write it. Today it is the greatest holiday in Bulgaria, a national holiday we wouldn’t have if it was not for Russia’s great good deeds.)

    I wish many Blessings to Brotherly Russia for liberating Bulgaria from the Turkish yoke! Today 03/03/2018 is 140th anniversary of the Russo-Turkish liberation war 1876-1878 in which Bulgaria gained its independence. Regardless of what the Bulgarian politicians (many of them supported by their western masters) are doing the majority of us the Bulgarians are grateful for the sacrifices Russia made to liberate Bulgaria from Turkey. Peace and light to the souls of all those Russians and everyone else who sacrificed their lives for the liberation of Bulgaria. God Bless Russia!
