Are Russia's New Super Nukes 'All Bark And No Bite?' While America's Nuclear Deterrent Has Aged To The Point Of Near Obsolescence, Russia Has Changed The Entire 'Game'
Fox News on the Web should be deeply embarrassed by Perry Chiaramonte and Alex Diaz’s August 8 article “Russia’s Nuclear Arsenal: All Bark and No Bite?”
“Amid fears of a new Cold War, an examination of Russia’s nuclear arsenal by Fox News shows that there may be no need to worry about a devastating nuclear attack,” Mr. Chiaramonte and Mr. Diaz write chirpily.
Mr. Chiaramonte and Mr. Diaz clearly know nothing about Russia’s nuclear capabilities or the fundamentals of nuclear strategy. Their article is blissfully uninformed by the findings of the Department of Defense and Intelligence Community’s Nuclear Posture Review.
They appear ignorant of copious years-long congressional testimony given by the nation’s foremost nuclear and Russia experts, and ignorant of numerous articles by same, explaining why the National Defense Authorization Act (signed by President Trump on Aug. 14) provides for desperately needed modernization of all U.S. nuclear forces — in order to deter an unprecedented nuclear threat from Moscow.
