Are We Approaching Another World War? This New Russian Nuclear Missle 'Satan 2' Can Blow Up Areas As Large As Texas, United States
Russia revealed for the first time their powerful nuclear missile that could destroy an area as large as Texas, United States.
The revelation came after the heated third US Presidential Debate where Democrat Hillary Clinton called Republican Donald Trump a "puppet" of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The Russian government revealed that their RS-28 Sarmat missile, also known as Satan 2 Nuclear Missile, that could destroy massive city "the size of Texas" according to a Russin publication, Sputnik.
The said missile has a payload that is 2000 times as powerful as the bombs which have been used to destroy Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945.
Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, assistant secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy, compared the ballistic Russian missile to the atomic bombs of Washington. He said that the American nuclear bombs are just "pop guns" compared to the monstrous weapon created by Russia.
"One Russian SS-18 wipes out three-fourths of New York state for thousands of years. 5 or 6 of these "Satans", as they are known by the US military, and the East Coast of the United Statesdisappears," he said on a blog.
The powerful weapon is also capable of evading radar defenses and capable of traveling far enough to hit the US East and West Coasts.
Chief designers of the missile at Makeyev Rocket Design Bureau already released pictures of the rocket.
The Soviet Union made their original Satan Missile in the 1970's after having their nuclear parity with the US during the hype of the Cold War.
The required minimum number of missile that should be reserved has agreed upon by the US and Russia through a treaty. However, Russia claimed that they need stronger nuclear force because of the military involvement of US in Europe.
Meanwhile, the destructive missile is expected to be deployed in late 2018.
