Mr. President Putin is one of only a few sane people in this complicated world. God bless him and Russia. Please vote for him, he is the only one suited to lead the great country called Russia.
Although it's something of a relief to know that the Russians have developed several weapon systems that will hopefully have a sobering influence on US imperialists, it also raises some serious questions for the future. As long as V. Putin is in power it seems reasonable to believe that these weapon systems will be used defensively. But what happens when Russia has its own version of US neocons? When the technology is in place, it doesn't seem to be much of a jump for political and military leaders of any country to go from a defensive posture to an offensive one. If Russia has clearly achieved a significant weapons advantage over the US, will it in the future use this advantage arrogantly as the US has done in order to advance its own interests? Are we therefore condemned to an unending arms race? The US has already foolishly demonstrated that arms limitation agreements - as well as other international agreements - are only as good as any particular administration wants them to be. Why should we expect a different outlook from future leaders in Russia or China?
Here are a few interesting links from Russia Insider on the new weapon systems.
