Implications for U.S. Nuclear Deterrence and Missile Defense

Unlike the U.S., nuclear forces are Russia’s highest military priority. In December 2016, President Putin declared Russia is “stronger than any potential aggressor,” has modernized almost 60% of its strategic forces and directed that Russia further strengthen its nuclear Triad.[1] In March 2017, he said that modernizing Russian military forces “concerns the strategic nuclear forces, above all.”[2] In January 2017, Russian Defense Minister General of the Army Sergei Shoigu stated that development of the strategic nuclear force was Russia’s first priority, noting Russia will “continue a massive program of nuclear rearmament, deploying modern ICBMs on land and sea, [and] modernizing the strategic bomber force.”

Nuclear war in Europe would not be containable until there's also nuclear war in Russia. That's guaranteed. Russia should be smart. We love your thinkers. We love your spirit. We love your oil, music, books, movies and vodka. But don't push anything onto us you don't want to get yourself. Stop seeking fights just so you can also be a superpower. Come up with a better capitalistic system that works, and people will follow you. That simple. You lose because of a failed, corrupt system.
