Media Hyping Up “Russia Tactical Nuke” Threat

Obviously, Russia would only start firing nukes if they thought the existence of Russia was being threatened.

They certainly wouldn’t do it when they’re in the middle of winning a war against America and Germany.

But hey – how about some unconfirmed and totally fake documents saying something totally different than that?

Would you like that, Fatmerica?


Russia’s threshold for using shorter-range tactical nuclear weapons may be lower than defense experts in the West believe, the Financial Times has claimed, cited purported Russian military documents.

The materials, which were allegedly presentations for Russian naval officers, discussed “operating principles” for the use of nuclear weapons, the FT reported. They were supposedly produced between 2008 and 2014 and shared with the British outlet by Western sources. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told the newspaper that Russia “strongly doubts” the authenticity of the documents.

Moscow’s military doctrine allows for the deployment of nuclear weapons in retaliation to a first strike against it or its allies, or in situations where Russian statehood is threatened. Senior officials, including President Vladimir Putin, have drawn attention to the country’s nuclear arsenal amid the Ukraine conflict. The US and its allies have accused the Russian leader of “nuclear blackmail,” although Moscow has rejected that allegation.

Last June, Putin said Russia had “no need” to use tactical nuclear weapons, insisting they are for deterrence. He also voiced opposition to any lowering of the nuclear threshold. Russia has a larger stockpile than NATO nations, which is why they are advocating a reduction, the president argued.

“Screw them,” Putin said. “[The weapons] are our competitive advantage.”

The criteria for the use of nuclear weapons in the documents reviewed by the FT included losses by Russian forces that “would irrevocably lead to their failure to stop major enemy aggression” and a “critical situation for the state security of Russia.” The destruction of 20% of Russia’s strategic missile submarines, 30% of nuclear-powered attack submarines, or a simultaneous hit on main and reserve coastal command centers were cited as specific examples.

Jack Watling, a senior research fellow for land warfare at the Royal United Services Institute, told the FT that the presentations were meant for relatively low-ranking military personnel.

“At this level, the requirement is for units to maintain – over the course of a conflict – the credible option for policymakers to employ nuclear weapons,” he stated. “This would be a political decision.”

That’s retarded.

The documents also claim Putin’s Russia thinks they’re going to be invaded by China (???).

This is all just dumb gibberish and vile gobbledygook.

The point is: the media is trying to get the idea of “Russia could use a nuke” out there as often as possible, because that is the only thing they could use to justify a NATO invasion of the Ukraine/Russia.

The CIA can absolutely detonate a nuke and blame it on Russia.

If I were Putin in that situation, I’d go on TV and announce that Berlin, London, and Paris have just been nuked, and Russia is demanding a total surrender of the United States.

But Putin rarely does the things that I would do if I were him.
