RUSSIA'S HYPERSONIC MISSILES DIDN'T SURPRISE AMERICA BUT THEY AWED THE WORLD | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


RUSSIA'S HYPERSONIC MISSILES DIDN'T SURPRISE AMERICA BUT THEY AWED THE WORLD

This dramatic announcement came during his annual State of the Nation address which this time included multiple videos showcasing each of the weapons systems that he described in his speech. President Putin was clear, however, that these armaments are for defensive purposes and were created in response to the US pulling out of the 1972 Anti-Ballistic Missile (ABM) Treaty in 2002 and thereby completely upsetting the erstwhile parity that had hitherto stabilized their relations.

It’s inconceivable that American intelligence agencies had no idea that Russia was developing these armaments, especially after Moscow announced its intentions over a decade ago like President Putin reminded everyone. This fact debunks the prevailing narrative, advanced for different reasons by the Mainstream and Alternative Medias, that the US was surprised by Russia’s revelation. Instead, it points to President Putin carrying out a clever soft power strategy for improving his country’s image throughout the rest of the world.

He and his advisors wisely calculated that now would be the best time to announce their military developments to the international community, especially after the disappointment that Trump has proven to be when it comes to restoring bilateral relations due to the fierce “deep state” “civil war”that he’s embroiled in. Moreover, the outstanding job that the Russian Aerospace Forces have done in Syria have made their equipment world-famous, suggesting that there might be a strong demand for the country’s hypersonic weapons exports in the future.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF American intelligence knew about the development of these weapons, why does the US not have the weapons at least one step ahead of what the Russians have at present?!?

There is no real excuse here, if that was the case.

This "J'accuse" I lay squarely at the feet of the culture of the leadership in the military industrial complex; the last two administrations; and the Trump administration.

Knowing that this was going on, but doing nothing to improve America's weaponry strength, makes the leadership of this country, and that of the military industrial complex here, appear to be collectively stupid.

Not that I am for using such weapons, as a Christian Pacifist Activist; St. Petersburg, and the Hermitage, are very much on my bucket list, and there is much positive that Putin has done for Russia.

It is apparent that the Russian government is getting far more "bang" for its weaponry buck than is the US government.

But not having such weapons in the US's military arsenal?!?

Just plain dumb, and a really bad call.
