Putin Says US Military Activity Poses Certain Threat To Russia

The US military activity poses “certain threat” and Russia tries to minimize the consequences of a possible US strike, Russian President Vladimir Putin said speaking at the Arctic Forum in Russia’s Arkhangelsk.

“The US, our neighbors in the Arctic, develop their military activity, which in our view is a threat for us [Russia],” the Russian state-run news agency Sputnik quoted Putin.

The president said that Russia has the right to develop military activities of its territory, comparing the Russian military activity with the US missile defense in Alaska.

“While what we are doing is of local nature, what the US is doing in Alaska is of global nature. A missile defense system is being developed there. This system is one of the most serious problems of the modern times in the security sphere. It’s not just a defense system, it’s a part of the nuclear potential brought to the periphery,” he said.

    US is printing more money to bankroll its corporations’ military spending.
    They hope to see the profits from defeating other countries (Iraq was a good example).
    Basically, it’s Big Business (psychopaths) versus nation-states (citizens).
