Kremlin's Kim Tantrum - A 3 Day Nuclear War Drill

Quoting multiple senior military officials in the Kremlin, Russian daily Nezafisimaya Gazeta, on it's online portal disclosed that on Thursday, Russia's Strategic Missile Forces began a massive three-day military exercise involving 10,000 soldiers and 1,000 pieces of equipment from over 30 units. The reason they gave for carrying out the drill is that there is a need to "ensure Russia's Strategic Missile Forces have sufficient readiness to conduct offensive operations involving a massive and simultaneous use of nuclear missiles."

Military analyst described the exercise as "a practice for a large-scale nuclear offensive". Against who kwanu, the USA or their cousins in Ukraine? Military observers explained further that Russia's conventional military capabilities had deteriorated after the collapse of the Soviet Union. So, they had become more reliant on operationalizing their nuclear arsenal.

That's understandable giving the loss and humiliation they suffered in Afghanistan, it's natural for the urge and need to invade less powerful countries to disappear for some time and to become complacent. Just lunch a missile on a geographical location and every living thing within that radious in obliterated. 

This is what happens when the hopes of a large group of people is left at the hands of lunatics called leaders, on one hand we have little men with huge egos and on the other hand we have big men who blatantly disrespect and underestimate others.

The situation with Russian might be a little bit different from that of North Korea. Kim test missiles in other to get food and financial aid while for Russian, it's about making a point. Hopefully it's all just for show and no one pushes too hard.
