This is old news, but it’s worthy of mention (http://breakingdefense.com/2015/02/are-missile-defense-lasers-on-the-verge-of-reality/), because I am not sure if Russia and China were even paying attention to Lockheed Martin. Recently, both countries revealed nuclear tests to show their teeth (http://freebeacon.com/national-security/russia-tests-hypersonic-glide-vehicle/ & http://www.reuters.com/article/us-southchinasea-china-missiles-idUSKCN0XI0SE), all without a clear awareness of the readiness of American directed energy weaponry. Once US has a global missile detection system with sufficient precision and accuracy, global nuclear supremacy is readily achievable. Today, I even read about a Russian blonde surviving multiple explosions (http://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/latest-news/510614/Terminator-bomb-proof-suit-Russia-video-YouTube-Dmitry-Rogozin-Facebook). What’s going on? Are Russian giant torpedoes ready to deploy?
A megaton-class nuclear warhead can disable an area with a radius of a few hundred miles, where all deployed radars and weaponry will be rendered useless. Sweeping through the entire US with nuclear warheads on cruise missiles is feasible, but the first wave of attack must be done with torpedoes.
Is US laughing? I don’t know. They don’t seem to be making comments nowadays. I am just saying that in order to guarantee complete annihilation you must have at least three methods of attack at your disposal. So, you will still need more than just torpedoes and cruise missiles. I say, let’s start first with wiping out all US satellites with the click of a button. That should be one of the cheapest ways to guarantee nuclear equality. Of course, US can do the same to both Russia and China. I am just saying that with each new strategic technology comes a new strategic military thinking. You have the technology, but you need to know how to use it and counter it intelligently. It’s not only about having all the pieces but also about knowing how to play the chess game.
Well, both sides sill have about 5-10 years to come up with new nuclear strategies. Maybe that’s why US is a little quiet now. Nah, please don’t tell me anything about US election as an excuse. If the new American president doesn’t even know the importance of national defense, there’s just not much else to say about him or her. Stay tuned.
