It seems the US and Russia have proceeded with the removal of the Intermediate Range Nuclear Arms Treaty and are beginning to rearm with nuclear weapons, Donald Trump and his Mini Nuke program and Vladimir Putin and his hypersonic Nuclear Weapons program, it seems the World is in store for a modernized Nuclear Weapons construction phase.

You might want to check out the 1964 movie "Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb".  Here is a free link to the entire movie.

I say we just blow the whole damned thing up and let the cockroaches have a go at building a civilization.

Those old computer tape drives behind Mandrake at 4:00 bring back memories.  Anyone remember punch cards?

I would suggest not doing that refer to the Great Filter thread for possible ramifications of Nuclear War. http://www.sciencefo...e-great-filter/

I think that it's all about the US trying to con Russia into an arms race again. The US has the resources to win it while Russia gets hurt on the economy side.

 

Russia/Putin have claimed that Russia won't be drawn into an arms race again. Will they?

 

As you suggest, Russia has pursued a deterrent against US aggression with it's unstoppable hypersonic missiles. But all that is really important is that neither side is going to start a nuclear war. This fact prohibits a head to head conflict between the world powers and then limits US aggression to proxy wars. 

 

Syria is done and Russia won. Iran is next but Russia seems to be saying that Iran isn't on the table. And European countries are not cooperating with US demands and plans for Iran.

I guarantee you that if whoever was helming Valkyries before me weren't intervening (i.e. 1948 Los Alamos and Sandia Atomic Weapons Lab and Military testing grounds) than we would already be extinct.

 

Since I'm in control of the Valkyries, who knows.
