Three Missileers: Putin, Lavrov, Shoigu Mock US Elites as 'Not Sane' for Withdrawing From Missile Treaty

Defense Minister Shoigu: 'Now They Have to Admit They are Wrong'

Welp, this might be it. Moscow is threatening nukes and the evil and incompetent Neocon Occupation Government is acting like nothing is wrong. 

Last week, in his address to the National Assembly, Russian President Vladimir Putin emphasized Russia's latest innovations in missile defense. His remarks came a couple weeks after US President Donald Trump withdrew his nation from the long-standing Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, raising the possibility that the US could station more missiles in Europe. 

Yesterday, Putin's warnings were seconded by Sergey Lavrov and Sergey Shoigu, Foreign and Defense Ministers.

The Sergeys went on to mock the US elite (rightfully) for their arrogance and sub-standard math skills.

So, yeah, nuclear war. I'm ready to run over to the nearest chain-link fence at a moment's notice.

Best to get it over with quick, right?

Ok, maybe it's not that bad. After all, the Russians are known for being very secretive about their actual military abilities.

But hey, look on the bright side. When the missiles are inbound, console yourself with the thought that at least Western Civ will die knowing that British five-year-olds aren't making fun of trannies


Transcript:

Good evening.

This week's top story is the President's Address to the Federal Assembly. Last Wednesday, it was read out by Vladimir Putin. We can already see today the first results and an actual reaction.

Everyone can count. Both our government, which has already announced the new pension adjustments, and our Western partners. The latter had to remember math and physics, divide the distance by the speed of our missiles, ended up with the time, and got nervous. Now, we're waiting for their logic to turn on. It's a complicated process but Putin is great at explaining.

And we're great at finding exclusive materials that nobody else has. What does the Russian Defense Minister consider to be the cause of the Americans' sadness and sorrow? And what does the Russian Foreign Minister have to say about the mental faculties of the American elite? It's all in our report. The first comments recorded during the first seconds after the Address was read out.

Putin encourages the American political class, the majority of which is so enthusiastic about their exclusiveness, to take a closer look at the newest Russian weapons.

Vladimir Putin: “But do they know how to count?”

- If the US counts everything that Putin mentioned, what will be the result? Will they give up the confrontation?

Sergey Lavrov, Foreign Minister: "You know, it's becoming difficult to assess the mental faculties of the members of the US elite that the president mentioned."

Sergey Shoigu, Defence Minister: "They'll reconsider their approach. Careful and precise calculations will inevitably lead them to sadness and sorrow. Everything mentioned by the president is being implemented on a routine basis, on schedule, with no incremental cost, without an arms race, and the program doesn't threaten our social budget.”
