Russian State TV Says Russia Could Turn America Into “Radioactive Ash”

Russian State TV Says Russia Could Turn America Into “Radioactive Ash”

Moscow (AFP) – A leading anchor on Russian state television on Sunday described Russia as the only country capable of turning the United States into “radioactive ash”, in an incendiary comment at the height of tensions over the Crimea referendum.

“Russia is the only country in the world realistically capable of turning the United States into radioactive ash,” anchor Dmitry Kiselyov said on his weekly news show on state-controlled Rossiya 1 television.

Kiselyov made the comment to support his argument that the United States and President Barack Obama were living in fear of Russia led by President Vladimir Putin amid the Ukraine crisis.

His programme was broadcast as the first exit polls were being published showing an overwhelming majority of Crimeans voting to leave Ukraine and join Russia.

He stood in his studio in front of a gigantic image of a mushroom cloud produced after a nuclear attack, with the words “into radioactive ash”.

“Americans themselves consider Putin to be a stronger leader than Obama,” he added, pointing to opinion polls which then popped up on the screen.

“Why is Obama phoning Putin all the time and talking to him for hours on end?” he asked.

Wild Thing's comment...........

Obama is way too busy selling Obamacare to worry about Radioactive ash. And why would Putin do that? He might interfere with Obama’s destruction of America, which will be far more thorough and long-lasting.

Unfortunately, he's right. Russia is the only nation that has nuclear capabilities that could decimate the US. We no longer have the nuclear force that was necessary to keep the Soviets at bay. As much as we would like to blame Obama for this, it's actually HW Bush's fault. HW Bush is the one who destroyed 75% of our B-52 fleet and started dismantling our missiles.

Agreed on Bush 41. He misused the "Peace Dividend".

We can still destroy Russia. Putin knows this. He is just making hay while the sun is shining in the form of our weak, sorry, anti American leader. Putin knows that a Ted Cruz or Sarah Palin would match him wit for wit so he is getting all he can now.

They are correct in that many Americans know Putin to be a many times stronger leader than our panty waisted Magic Negro.
