Trump said he wants to “get along with Putin,” rather than provoke him, as Hillary Clinton would have done.
“If we can get along with Russia, that’s very good,” Trump has said. “And I think I would get along with Putin.” Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, chose to take a very aggressive course toward Russia. Said a Putin ally said during the election campaign. “If Hillary Clinton wins, it’s war!”
Now here’s a hell of a good reason to get along with Vladimir Putin:
“The Status-6, an unmanned nuclear powered submarine, is the most irresponsible nuclear weapon that Putin’s Russia has come up with.”
–Former Pentagon official Mark Schneider, now with the National Institute for Public Policy.
Code-named Kanyon by the Pentagon, the secret underwater drone will be equipped with megaton-class warheads—the largest nuclear weapons in existence, with the killing power of millions of tons of TNT. It is designed to kill millions of civilians by massive blast and fallout.
The weapon could be used against U.S. ports and bases, including those used by ballistic missile submarines. The two U.S. nuclear missile submarine bases are located at Kings Bay, Georgia, just north of the Florida border, and Puget Sound in Washington State.
Pavel Podvig, a Russian nuclear forces watcher, said the Status-6 payload “looks like a massive dirty bomb,”—a nuclear device that kills with radiation as opposed to a combination of a nuclear blast and radiation.
